I just can't seem to escape the drama. I was in tears this morning because I am so overwhelmed. I...
This week we finalized our out of town guests' hotel. We decided on Country Inn & Suites. My FH and I went a couple weeks ago to each of the 4 hotels that were closest to us. The first, Ayres Hotel was VERY pricey. The highest on the list, so we counted that out. Next, Dynasty Suites. A much smaller hotel and the rooms were very dated and small. Out. Next, Comfort Suites, I really thought this would be the winner. It is a bit closer to us and I had done business with them w/ my prior company. But they have a church conference the week of my wedding that they are blocking rooms for. And they wouldn't call me back after they'd "check" to see if they could make it work. So, lastly, we checked out Country Inn and Suites and my FH and I couldn't believe how BIG the rooms were. Geesh, they could fit practically everyone in that room, like hanging out. In the queen room, there is also a sleeper sofa. So, hey, you can't beat that. A great vanity area out side the bathroom if more than one person is getting ready and a microwave, fridge and sink. Not to mention the complimentary hot breakfast.
They offered to give us a great deal on the champagne suite as well if we get 10 or more bookings. But we aren't sure exactly how many, so we will just wait and see about that. I kinda wanted to spend that night in my own bed since we will be gone for 7 days on the honeymoon and I'll miss my 3 kitten faces terribly :(
But we do want to get a room for my FH for Friday night. The guys are all going out for drinks after our BBQ for OOT guests. And he can get ready/hang out there the next day before the wedding.
This weekend we will be finalizing our group booking with Men's Warehouse to get our number so that all the guys can start making their reservations.
I updated our wedding website with a ton more info. It's nice to be getting things checked off the TO DO list!! Love that part!!
Lastly, I also attached a pic of the shot glasses for the guys. We just bought them plain at the 99cents store, bought two 4-packs. But since my FH has seen me DIY everything else, he wanted me to do a little something for these. Whatcha think??
