@skiptomylou: Sadly, a venue can do whatever they want if they don’t have a deposit and signed contract … i’d contact the coordinator and tell them you would like to sign immediately, if your date is still available (which, unfortunately, if they’re advertising a bridal expo, it doesnt seem so).

The place where I was planning on planning my wedding scheduled a bridal expo the same day as our wedding! Even though when we met with the wedding consultant she showed us two ballrooms (one for the ceremony one for the reception) and a “promenade” area (for cocktail hour) they are now telling us that we need to rent out both ballrooms if we want to be the exclusive event at the hotel. I thought that’s what we were doing!!
