LOL Chipmunky I have another Florida honeymoon story!
A family member got married in Sebastian. They had made some sort of reservation at a place called Capt. Hiram's, which from the reviews seems like a great place to stay. Unfortunately, the young couple had many, many problems.
I saw the original contract. The reception was to be held at the hotel. They had booked a block of rooms for the parents and the attendants, including one suite for hair/makeup, and a deluxe suite for the young couple that was to be stocked with champagne, nibbles and flowers. The trouble started when people started to arrive on Friday. They gave the first two people (a groomsman and a bridesmaid) rooms. Everyone else was told they did not have rooms. (At this point, the bride and groom were told they did have one of the suites they reserved - but not the hair/makeup room.)
This was an easygoing young couple, so they adjusted. The night before the wedding, all the bridesmaids crammed into the two rooms available. Family members not in the wedding party hastily relocated to a chain hotel about seven miles away. The groom and his attendants slept on the beach, which they reported was "kind of cool."
The wedding was Saturday. Everything seemed OK, except that the wedding guests were held out in the pool area for what seemed to be quite a long time (well over an hour). This was June; people were melting. Turns out the reception room was in no way ready, and the bride's parents were trying to get everything the way it was supposed to be. The reception, when it finally started, was great.
Then the coup de grace. The newlyweds had been given a keycard to their suite, but were told it would not be ready until after the reception. But when they got there - there was another couple in the room! The snacks and wine that had been prepared for them had been opened and consumed. (I don't know what the couple in the room was thinking, but they didn't hesitate to dive into things they had to have known weren't theirs. By report, they were quite entitled-acting and sneery when confronted, and objected to the bride taking the flowers with her.) The young couple spent their wedding night in a standard room.
I never did hear what the hotel did to make this comedy of errors right, but I can't imagine any response that would have been adequate, especially since they were quite blase about all the goofups before the wedding. I suspect the bride's father (who is a sweet, gentle, kind man) got back a considerable chunk of the Very Large Check he'd written to the resort. I also believe the bridal party was to refrain from posting about this on social media websites.
I wasn't in the bridal party.
