What was I thinking?
I am mother of the groom- all I needed to do was to get a dress and secure a place for the rehearsal dinner.
I did get my dress.
And as of Monday, thought we had a place for the dinner.
The woman who should have put us on the books did not.
Yep- less then 2 weeks out I found out I had 50 people and food for 50 people and no room to put them in.
And- this is a Hampton Inn, I expected more. Maybe that was the problem- I expected them, her, to act professionally and I found out that was not her style.
The first red flag should have been the unreturned emails back in January.Then the unreturned phone call - and then the unreturned email.
But I went on anyway- like a lost puppy- and continue to hound her until she returned an email.I thought I had her and the room.
She failed to write us in the book and then went on to book the room for someone else-
They offered us the lobby----------------
with a clean up fee----------------------
We declined and are now moving rooms else where.
Hampton Inn- I expected better.
Now to the good part.
The people at the B&B where the wedding will be called another B&B and they are taking our 50 people and our catered dinner.
NC Barbecue with the trimmings!
They are setting us up with tables and chairs at their pool area.
We have even booked into their B&B for the weekend.
( insert cheers here!)
Now the other insanity- we booked a show for this upcoming weekend.
Yea, I know- we thought we could make it.
I contacted the Rosedale yesterday and let them know we would not be there.
The director called me laughing.
She said," you thought you could do a show the weekend before a wedding???????"
Yea- I did- but we will not be there.
So apologies to anyone who planned to see us there- we will be here and open.
So come on by.
