Do you have a written contract?

If you have a written contract, sue ’em. Boost your wedding budget and maybe look into renting a tent and using an outdoor space?
Definitely look into your legal options! I would be LIVID, I’m so sorry your dealing with this.
Any chance you can call dibs having booked it first?

I agree, sue the $H1T out of them! What unprofessional jerks! Also tell them that you plan on putting horrible reviews all over facebook and twitter and weddingbee!
Make sure they know you mean business, and that your business is to harm their business since they harmed your wedding.

Why is it you who loses the date and not the other bride? Either way it is awful bit if you signed the contract first it seems like it’s your date and her contact is void and they need to give her a refund…..

WOW that’s terrible! Definitely seek legal advice on this!
In the meantime, I hope you can find another venue! Good luck!

I would contact your local Better Business Bureau, the local TV news and anyone else who can put some pressure on this guy!! This is UNACCEPTABLE!! YOU had the venue booked first, so let him “scratch” the other bride!

@islisha: Hahaha ok, it doesn’t really matter whether you type in Caps or not – besides you’re devastated, so Caps makes sense anyway.
I would sue the s**t out of them. Period.

The Better Business Bureau is really pointless. As long as they respond, the BBB considers they honorable. Don’t bother.
Take legal action and use the power of media (social and regular) to get your story out. You might have some angelic venue step forward with their space if your story gets told publically!

@ThingsThatShine: I’m glad someone said that.
