Planning our wedding on the east coast but live on the west coast. After days of research online and phone calls, of course, and one trip back east to see things in person, we tentatively selected our venue.
Problem is…FI and I have both been having doubts! Mainly it has to do with some difficulties we are having with the person in charge and also the caterer (who we are forced by the venue to use). They are not horrible but not great either.
AH, we have been torturing ourselves looking at other venues online and having conversations about how great it would be to just start fresh at a new venue LOL.
It’s ALMOST too late to turn back, but we haven’t signed anything yet or put money down. But time is running out and it might inconvenience some people. Save the Dates have been sent via email but with only the date and name of the city.
Anybody else been through this second-guessing of a venue, what worked for you?!

Since you are planning from afar it might be worth it to find a site with a coordinator who communicates well and you can trust. The coordinator at our venue is TERRIBLE and I will not be relying on her to do anything!

I agree…you need a place that will be great at communicating with you…if you need to change, do it now…

Since there is no money down, I’d say change now. Why not? If you are already going into this preferring you’d have a different venue, then that venue isn’t for you. And wedding planning won’t be as fun. Find something that you will like.

Change, if you are not comfortable now it will only get worse. Find something you are comfortable with, it will make the long distance planning process easier.

I’d try to stall them and research alternative venues. If you don’t find anything better, you can always stay with them.
