That sounds awful.  We’ve only found one venue that we both love/is in our price range/suits ‘us’ and would be equally as devastated if that happened (we haven’t actually booked it yet).

 

As my gran would say, everything happens for a reason.  The place you actually find will be even more perfect, this just needed to happen for you to find it ๐Ÿ™‚

Could you try an alternative type of venue?  Or reduce your guest list, freeing a bit more of your budget per head?

@malouloune:  Take a breath. I can’t speak to price but Kosher food isn’t bad… you just can’t have bacon, shellfish or mix milk and meat. If they get you in the right price, you can TOTALLY make kosher work for you.

My wedding is kosher and we are having amazing food! ๐Ÿ™‚

@malouloune:  did you sign the contract under the old prices? If so, I’m pretty sure they have to honor the old prices. If not, they don’t have to honor it but there’s no harm in asking.

Also, just curious…why is it bad that the food is Kosher?

@malouloune:  As someone else said, Kosher isntnecessarily a type of food it just means you can’t have certain things (shellfish, pork, mix meat and cheese) but you can do a lot within those bounds. Don’t be scared off by the label and see what they can do!

I’m sorry! I really know how you feel. If I find the perfect reception spot, I’m having a super hard time finding a ceremony spot, and vise versa.

I think found a reception space I love, it’s a very rustic pavailion [brick building, but looks like a barn inside].

I had found a ceremony space but they won’t let us put up tents in case of rain, and it ALWAYS rains here in october, so that’s a no go.

I found another one, but it’s in a arboretum.. which is fine, but I’m unsure of how far I’m willing to have my guests walk to my ceremony. Basically, to get to the ceremony spot, you have to walk a couple city blocks up trails, and there is NO DRIVING ALLOWED. I’m not sure I’m okay with doing that walk in my dress, and having my guests do it. Plus what about the elderly? UGH!

@malouloune:  Ok, that response alone would turn me away. How rude.

I love planning and while I don’t know anything about the Miami area, maybe I can help. If you want to PM your location (or that of the church) and your budget, maybe I can browse around a bit? I’m having a bit of a freakout with my venue too and I know how stressful it can be :

Wait. What? Kosher food is amazing. It has to live up to higher standards. And any recipe that doesn’t break the rules people above mentioned can be kosher, so as long as you’ve tried a chicken dish without milk in the recipe, or a nice steak, you’ll be familiar with it. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t opt for it – because it’s usually more expensive!

I hope you get your original price honored.
