If there wasn’t anything in your contract about it (venue malfunctions or something like that) then I’m not really sure how much you can do :/ I’m sorry you had to deal with that though. Weddings can get hot enough as is especially if there’s a lot of dancing or activity so I can’t even imagine having to deal with that (especially during this heat wave)!

Don’t give up yet.  Have you read over your contract details?  I think you should receive some compensation.  Start with reading the contract and talking with the manager/owner.  Put everything in writing as well and submit to them.  Come up with a compensation figure you think is fair and be prepared to compromise.  It was an “accident,” so to speak, but they definitely should have done more to help you with the issue.  If all else fails you may need to speak with an attorney if it’s worth it to you.

So sorry that happened at your wedding!  This heat wave has been horrible – the worst I’ve ever seen.  Here in NC it has also been extremely hot, in the hundreds. 

I hope it works out, please keep us updated.

I wouldn’t be talking with “the girl at the venue.” I would write or meet with the General Manager. Before you do, decide exactly what would make this right for you.

Her idea was a $150 gift certificate. That would not do it for me.

What is you idea of proper compensation?

@KitKatNYC:  My sister’s reception had a broke AC as well.  It was 85 in there!  She did not get any compensation.

 

I am so sorry!
