To me a golf country club with brown grass = financial trouble.  I would ask your contact point blank whether there are financial problems going on.  If she hems and haws, tell her that you’re thinking of moving your venue.  Even if you don’t have a deterioration of quality clause, you can still try to demand your deposit back.

I agree – sounds like they’re struggling. I would ask them and I don’t think it’s Bridezilla-y at all to do so! You have a right to know!

Oh wow, that’s not good.  So the contract states that you can’t cancel under any circumstances?  Because that’s really poor business on their part.  A country club has way to much grass, and should have way more pride in its appearance to let it get so bad!  Then you have to worry that the quality of service is deteriorating as well.  Did you put money down with the signed contract?  Hopefully she does give you a course of action, one which will alleviate your stress.  If not, I’d really have a serious discussion with this women and explain to her that you can’t just wait around and hope the problem remedies itself.  If your not comfortable with that (I talk a good game on a blog but when it comes down to stuff like this I make my dad do the real talking lol) I’d have someone, like a father or a good talker to come with you.  I hope it works out!

No, you’re definitely not overreacting here.  I really hope it works out the way you want it to.

You need to do something fast because reception sites are hard to come by. I went out looking (just looking) at possible locations today and only two venues could even fit our rather small event (125) and one of those places was completely musty and the other one only had two dates for the entire summer 2011 available.

I really hope it works out for you.
