This might be kind of confusing, but stay with me!! We're doing a destination wedding in October and we have our RSVP deadline as May 25th (per the hotel). So many more people than we expected have been telling us they were going to come. We now have to add extra rooms if we want all our guests to get the cheaper pricing with shuttles included (yes it is actually cheaper I checked the travel websites).
I have a handful of people already who verbally committed and were really excited that have said they now can't go. If I have unused rooms, I have to pay for one night of each room that isn't used. So if I have like 10 extra rooms that adds up. That being said I can't wait to add them until a week before the deadline because the hotel needs them.
Is there a polite way for me to ask some of the people who verbally committed already if they're still planning to make it? I just have a lot of people who verbally committed, but I need to know if they were serious so I can add more rooms. I'm not trying to rush anyone, I just want to make sure everyone is able to get in the room block who is interested/we aren't wasting $1,000 on people who aren't planning to come.
