A hotel is preparing for a very busy few days and weekend.  A wedding party is booked and the guests are soon to be arriving about 2 days before the big day.  The hotel manager, Martin, is frantically ordering his staff around and trying to find sneaky ways of swindling as much as he can from the guests.  The bridesmaids arrive first, causing up a bit of a raucous.  After expressing their outrage over paying too much for their hotel considering what was advertised, thanks to Martin increasing the prices, they are escorted to their rooms.  Martin then tries to come up with additional luxuries to swindle people out of…..AND THAT’S JUST FOR STARTERS!
