I would go with the venue that provides the best service… from what I’m getting from your post, that’s the one you went with.  They are working with you (food tasting, rules) instead of just saying “this is our policy, take it or leave it.”  That speaks volumes to me as a customer.  Plus, it’s less expensive and your Future Mother-In-Law gets to help you.  Believe me, I understand about loving new venues compared to ones that are a little bit older and within budget.  You might just have to bite the bullet and choose to view the venue for its better qualities.  Hopefully your guests will understand why you went with the second place too.

I think you should stay where you are at. We did the opposite. We booked the venue we were in love with that is excatly like how you describe. The woman who showed us around was friendly, and I made sure to mention we would have to do things on a different time table than what they were used to due to us being out of town. We signed the contract and then the woman left. The new girl will not talk to me about anything, she keeps saying that I have to talk to someone else closer to the wedding. (My wedding is in less than 3 months) We can’t taste the food until the week before, and can’t have a DJ past 10pm. (Did I mention this place is EXPENSIVE). My most recent question was to schedule the rehersal dinner, and the response was that they could put us down, for the day we needed, but nothing is set in stone. Right NOTHING is set in stone because you wont talk to me about MY wedding. We are now looking to break contract and find a venue thats much cheaper, with better service, even if we have to do more to make it what we want.

Trust me…Stay where you are at, it will only end in heartbreak later.
