    Unless you have something in writing that guarantees that they won’t begin construction until 2014, I doubt you’ll get very far in the court system.

    The best you can do is notify them immediately that you’d like to cancel and you will forfeit the 40% you have paid to them. You need to decide if that is worth not having your wedding in a construction zone.

    @BlueDiamondBride:  I would demand a discount, and if they no, seek out a lawyer! If they told you no construction, and you booked based upon that, it falls on them, not you.

    That sucks, I feel for you. If you don’t have anything in writing it may be hard to go anywhere with this. I would see what willingness they have to negotiate and if you are too emotional dealing with this (I would be) find someone who can negotiate for you.

    I would be upset too! Hope you work it out! Why would the venue start construction during peak wedding season? That is so strange to me! Our venue renovated one of their courtyards a few months before our wedding, but it was in January!
