The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Don't be Stupid, Bridey...

Hoteliers, how many times have you heard this from a bride getting married at your property, "Do you realize how much money I'm spending at your hotel? I don't understand why you can't just include 'it' in the package". And "it" can be a plethora of things... Room rental, set up fee, CHAMPAGNE WITH DINNER!!! Really?? I will never fucking understand it. I will never understand why some brides think that just because they are getting married at a particular venue, that they are forever exempt from future expenses. That everything should be included because they are spending money at your hotel.

Yes. Yes, I've written about this before (actually, it was one of my videos). But, it deserves an encore presentation. Why? Well, let me tell you... Because every year I work with a bride who is so entitled, and so sheltered that she really believes that certain amenities are simply owed to her just because she has chosen to bless the hotel with her wedding.

I'm Not Going to Say "I Told You So"

I'm not going to say "I told you so", even though I am absolutely DYING to scream it at the top of my fucking lungs!!! Seriously, I am aching in my soul to tell this bride that she should have listened to me. And although I am a powerful source of knowledge, and definitely not afraid to put people (brides and vendors alike) in their place, I cannot force anybody to do anything once their mind is made up.
