So we got married already (destination) and we are having our party where we live in 10 days.
I just gotta message from our planner that our venue is closing down on Friday due to their rent delinquency by the court.
The planners are running around looking for alternative venues at the moment.
Nobody knew about this and even the venue staff didn’t know.
There are also couples who are having their wedding at this venue THIS WEEKEND.

WOW. That is a really crappy move on the venue owner’s part. I really hope you find a great alternative for your reception!

WOW! That’s crazy! I feel so bad for those couples who are supposed to be getting married there this weekend!

I know right!? Not enough time to inform their guests!!!
We might end up with more expensive venue for the same money we paid which is good but still what a pain.

The planner says they suspect that the owner planned this move without telling anybody. The venue staff didn’t know that they were getting fired today, and they are not even getting paid!!! They haven’t paid my planners for other weddings that they did with them. My wedding planners will be lawyering up.
The venue staff are saying they feel so bad that they want to apologize to us in person when they didn’t do anything wrong and not getting paid!

Holy goodness, that’s horrible!
Is the company closing as a whole? If they are, all of those people are going to be screwed out of their money.. there’s pretty much no getting your money back from a bankrupt company.
I seriously hope they told those ladies who were planning their wedding there this weekend – Poor dears!

@jenilynevette: Not sure if the company is closing but man, this is bad. I never thought I would witness not to mention deal with this kind of stuff.

@gramgeek: Wow, that is awful. Can you look into public parks and see if you can get a last minute tent rental? Or maybe even forgo the tent if the weather is good? I’m hopeful that you can find a new venue since it’s not full-blown wedding season yet.
