    See if there are any wedding coordinators in that area that might be able to help you.

    I would get on every wedding board possible and tell your story. Name and shame…

    Also second the wedding coordinator suggestion.

    @FutureMRS3lastnames:  oh my gosh, I’d be halfway into a full-on meltdown! I would definitely name and shame, and immediately look up new wedding venues that are somewhat close to your original, because I imagine guests have booked hotels. 

    Scour boards and google for highly reccomended places. This guy is beyond unprofessional, and I would have been less than polite in dealing with him. 

    Can you share where this took place?

    I hope you can find someplace else quickly! I would keep it in the same area for people who already bought plane tickets… Good luck!

    Also, Name and shame!

    Yes, I would definitely start raising all the bad publicity you can about this place. Post it to every wedding board, every consumer rating place, heck, even google this place – there is bound to be sites where you can rate them. Do not embellish – simply state what you told us. I also think getting in touch with a wedding coordinator local to that area would be a tremendous help. Oh and make sure you get in touch with BBB to lodge a complaint and see about getting your money back!

    Post another post on weddingbee with the heading “Did you have your weedding in “—“? Need help” Rewrite your situation and ask what venue they used for their wedding.  Tell your budget, how many people, and any other details you would need.  Ask them to post pics if need be.  Good luck.

    @FutureMRS3lastnames:  Yelp this beast. You’ll find someone way better–think of it this way: it’s better to know that this guy is a mess now than after he completely f’s up your wedding!

    I would file a complaint with the BBB and get a move on looking at other options. Is it possible to move the wedding back at all? Probably not considering its 3 months out. Good luck. Embarassed

    @FutureMRS3lastnames:  I am so sorry.  So you have fully paid for the venue for the ceremony right but you cannot bring in any outside caterers and he wont cater it?  Is there anyone else at his company you can talk to? I imagine not if you said it is his hobby. I agree with PP see if you can you find a local wedding planner, someone who can mediate and try to talk to him on your behalf.  What country is this in?  He sounds like a nightmare.

    Is he your contact at the venue?  If not, contact the venue, explain the situation, and get in writing approval to bring in an outside caterer.  If they still won’t let you, or if this he is your venue contract, then you are entitled to all your money back because they are in breach of contract.  You reserved that space with the intention to have a catered reception, and perhaps even have a catering minimum, so you should either be able to bring in outside catering or get a refund.  Sorry you are having to go through this.
