@Preludeangel:  yikes!  i hope you find something soon.

this happened to me with my previous wedding.  the cater closed his doors less than a month before my “june” wedding.  ouch.  my advise, stay calm, stay focused and stay positive that you will find something new.

good luck.

Foreclosure process can be a long drawn out battle. If the company is fighting for it you still have a chance to have your wedding there.

Have you thought about looking into something like this: http://www.bridalbrokerage.com/


Maybe there is something available through them for your current date that isn’t too far away?  Good luck to you, what a terrible situation!

What did the venue offer in terms of getting your deposit back?

I appreciate that they say they are “fighting for their business” but if they had paid their bills in the first place, they wouldn’t be in this position – thus putting their clients in this position. I’d get out and find another place and find it fast. I hope everything works out for you and you get to keep your date.

@Preludeangel:  You should start looking into other places and call to see if they have your date available.  There are plenty of places in upstate NY (if that’s where you want to hold your wedding).

@Preludeangel:  i highly doubt they can charge you the entire $16k. you’d have to cancel much closer to your wedding for something like that to happen. if they try to charge your CC, then file a dispute with the CC company.
