Hi there everyone, Wanted to make sure this doesn't happen to anyone else. After being told to book a private room for our reception to ensure I could wear my dress to the event we started adding up what we are spending. Long story short, with the rehearsal dinner, the ceremony package, and the wedding reception we have actually moved from the initmate to the custom bride range. Unfortunately our planner was not as astute at doing this math and with a little over one month to go we're now scrambling to find out if we can even get the "honeymoon" room offered to custom brides. Now, we always new we were close to the total but were not aware that the rehearsal dinner could count toward our minimum so I'm posting this thread so that others will know not to make the same mistake. Also, keep count of the number of nights any guests are staying at the resorts. We also found out we meet the minimum room block requirement but until I asked we were never given a heads up to do so. What I'm saying here is please don't expect the coordinator to give you suggestions or advice if you think you are near the amount of a custom wedding. Instead of letting us know 3 months ago we were close to the total it took us questioning her to find out we qualify for more "a la carte" options as she termed it earlier this morning. Hope this helps!
