Sad Weddingmoon Development


A while back, G and I picked out the room and the resort for our wedding/honeymoon. Our number one choice was the Sandals Royal Grande St. Lucian and our hope for a room was the swim-up honeymoon concierge suite. With airfaire, the price kept coming up to about $7000 for the entire round trip, 7 day vacation. At Sandals, everything is included, so that includes food, entertainment, room, drinks, everything (except shopping).

I have routinely been checking back for the prices on the website, and they have steadily been going down. I was getting more and more excited about the price, which was down to about $6220 last time I checked. In order to reserve the price, we would have to pay for airfaire (about $1100) and a $400 room deposit. Since we still aren't totally sure we can afford the trip, there was no way we could afford to put down a deposit, especially when the airfaire is not refundable.

Anyway, here's the sad part: On a whim, I thought I would go check it out last night before bed, but there was very bad news. The room is sold out! And not just for the week in October when we were getting married. It's sold out for many weeks. Booooo! I can't believe it! I never thought it would sell out this far in advance. Sure, there are other weeks and months later in the year when the room is available, but we still don't have the money to reserve the room anyway, so it will just have to wait until we do... and by then the only available time to stay in that room may be 2010!

Maybe it just wasn't meant to be our room, you know? There are penthouse conceirge rooms that are more than $1000 cheaper than the swim-up rooms, and it might have turned out that we never even used the lagoon. I'm sure that at a resort like that, all of the rooms are fantastic and way better than a normal hotel anyway. But for right now, I'm just sad to see that those particular rooms are selling out so incredibly far in advance.
