@sunshinewish15:  Why did they cancel you and not the other wedding?!  If you want the date and venue, I would fight for it/talk to the manager, etc. Just returning the deposit isn’t enough I think- they breached their contract with you.  I’m so sorry OP, I would be so upset!  *HUGS*

@sunshinewish15:  I’m so sorry to hear this, I would be in tears! How did they just now figure out they double booked you? Why do you have to get bumped, and not the other?

@HeartsandSparkles:  agreed. I think there needs to be some sort of compesatory damages here. 

OP, what does your contract say?

@sunshinewish15:  that is terrible to hear. I would check who booked the date first, especially if you booked it two months ago. I don’t understand how they can double book a venue? October is still beautiful though. Depending what state your in, you may even get better weather and you will still get all the beautiful spring flowers.

I”m happy everything’s resolved and that the new venue is even nicer! We were originally going to have our wedding at my fiance’s mom’s house and 8 months before the wedding she changed her mind! So we had to start over from scratch, but it’s definitely for the best. We love everything so much more now. Everything happens for a reason!
