So I just found out from one of my guests who was trying to reserve a room that the hotel we had reserved caught fire 🤦🏼‍♀️ So they haven’t called me or emailed me which is annoying and then I heard it’s a right off. So either way I have to call the hotel tomorrow and see what’s going on. Call another hotel and book something but my venue is in a small town and there isn’t much … then call all my guests who have reserved, let them know the news. Then update all my invitations and wedding website… just annoyed 🙄🤦🏼‍♀️
I was just saying today to a friend it’s been such an easy non stressful process.. this is what people mean by things always pop up and don’t go as planned!!!

    What a news to receive just when things were going well and to know your not getting called about something about your event taking place won't be ready for your wedding. It is stressful to rearrange another hotel block and on the hotel mangers side to ensure everything he has to do now. Some professionalism of being straight up apologetic about the situation from him. I do hope you find something soon and to have your guests cancel their reservations also receiving your refund for the wedding.

    Thanks!! Just waiting for the call back on a new hotel! 🤞🏼
    Luckily only 3 people reserved so I let them know today 🤦🏼‍♀️ Kinda embarrassing telling them lol
    Also the manager was kinda rude, I apologized to him about the fire and asked if the hotel was permanently closed and if so could I have the names of my guests who have reserved. And all he replied with was sure. And the names. Like I was expecting an apology on his end because nobody has contacted me about this ! Maybe I’m being a bridezilla , maybe he is going through a lot and is stressed out 🤷🏼‍♀️ I still expect professionalism I guess 😅

    Oh man, thats crazy! I know they were working on that fire like ALL day!

    You could also check with the Rockyview Hotel (if you haven't). Its a bit older but it has all the small town charm that I love about this place! Plus its got a great restaurant attached for guests to dine day before or day after. I also haven't stayed, but the staff at Super 8 are super nice when we booked a room for our condo.

    Hey! So crazy! That’s what I thought too but they are saying the hotel is a right off and will stay closed! 😬 I haven’t even got a call from anyone there!
    I tried to call and it’s just a voicemail saying they are closed so I emailed the manager just waiting to hear back!
    But I did call days inn and they have space so we shall see Thanks for the help! I will definitely let you know!

    Hey Alyx! I know exactly what you are talking about! I wouldn't worry about it too much. I think you've got enough time until your wedding for the hotel to get it sorted, and there are a few other options still in town. I know there isn't alot but definitely some.

    If you need any help, please message me!

    That is definitely very frustrating! I hope one of the other inns will be able to accommodate you!
