- Wedding: June 2013
Hi ladies. My wedding was scheduled for Friday June 6th but I was just notified last week by my venue that they have to cease operations due to some permit/complaints from the neighbors. They have been having weddings for almost 4 years now. The venue hired an attorney who went to the county boards to try to come up with a comprise. They want to honor their current contracts for May and June… (This whole thing is a mess). We are supposed to have either approval or denial by mid week…..
She stated that the venue has agreed to use an off-site location for parking. This was one of the biggest complaints from the neighbors. They were worried about people leaving the venue and driving past their home after a night of drinking. The closest off-site location is 5-6 miles away She said she will be providing a shuttle service. My Friday wedding just isn’t going to work with the shuttle, people will have to leave work too early to get there. Its about 45 min- hour drive with rush hour, ceremony was at 5 pm.
Her Saturday, June 7th bride just backed out and that day is now available. The vendors told me that they could make it on that day…. This makes it easier but imo it still sucks I still need to switch my flight, honeymoon, vendors and send out new invites…
I’m expecting about 80-85 guests . What is the best and easiest way to set up this transportation. If you miss the shuttle/bus (I’m not sure what she will be using yet or how many she plans on having there), you’re waiting 25 min for it to come back and pick you up (If she only has one).
I’m going to offer her my suggestions on what I think is the best way to do this since this. Any advice on shuttle, bus, valet, how many would we need? What time should guests arrive? The ceremony will be at 4:00.
I’m still not even sure if we have approval…. I’m going to look at a new venue tomorrow but I really don’t want to go to another venue… The new venue is more expensive, I lose 1 vendor due to distance, it’s further away, new invites need to go out, and I don’t like nearly as much. However, this is the only other option at this point Regardless of which venue I choose, it’s still going to cost me extra money….
So suggestions, thoughts, ideas?
Thanks ladies, I really need all the advice I can get. I’m so stressed….
