@BakerBee16:  I’m so happy it’s working out for you! What is written in your agreement with the original reception site? I know that some places will give you the deposit back IF it gets booked by someone else. I know other places won’t give it back no matter what.

I actually have friends who decided to move their wedding because it was going to be about 4k cheaper. They tried to get their $500 deposit back, and the venue refused. Well, now they are KEEPING that date and trying to sell it on craigslist for $400 (so they will only lose $100). But they AREN’T having their wedding there no matter what, so the venue will literally be losing out on THOUSANDS of dollars by not giving them their deposit back. Pretty silly!
