Okay, so the venue where we are having our reception changed the ceiling and I hate it! It used to be lovely, romantic, draped fabric, it was honestly one of the things I liked most about the place but now it’s smooth, white, and tent looking…I’m so dissapointed, it gives the room a totally different feel. What would you guys do? Demand a discount? Change the location? Rent fabric to put up again? Suck it up and deal with it? ugh…I hate my venue so much right now!

@nikkaletty: you know…..I don’t think anyone will notice…your guests won’t know it was any different and I can’t remember the last time I looked at a ceiling for any reason other than to see if the light bulbs were out or the roof was leaking.

@Nona99: I suppose you are right. Although I keep seeing wide pictures of the room and the old ceiling and it looks so nice! I guess I feel a bit tricked or something.

@nikkaletty: Well, you never know why they had to change it, those things can be hard to keep clean, they absorb odor, and depending on fire codes, could be a violation in the safety department…so you can always ask about it, but it will be lovely regardless of the ceiling.

I promise no one is going to notice your ceiling! But if it really bothers you, you could try to negotiate a discount with your location to cover some of the costs of rental drapes?

Nah man, demand a discount or make them hire in a fully draped ceiling at no extra expense!
you chose their venue with the ceiling included in what you paid, now it’s gone s they owe you that ceiling or your money back! Boo yah… Lol it’s your day and you have the right to want what you originally bought into!

@nikkaletty: While I agree that no one will notice, it is still frusterating! I can see why you’d feel a little tricked. You paid for something, expecting to receive what you paid for in the condition that it was whe you paid for it and they changed something. It’s a little like ordering an emerald green dress and then the store ran out of that color so they sent you a mint green dress instead without warning you about the switch. It will be stunning and no one will notice but you but it’s not what you paid for and it’s not what you wanted! ANNOYING! If it’s a big deal, I’d say something and see what they say. If it’s not a make or break it to you, I wouldn’t even mention it until the wedding is over. Who knows how they’ll react? Maybe they’ll be super sensitive about it and be mean or annoying or something. You don’t want to have an ugly relationship with your venue over something that doesn’t really matter to you!
