We’re looking at holding our ceremony at a state park, but I wanted to know if we submitted our request for a permit and the dates and times we requested were full, do they refund/not process our payment or are we out the permit fee no matter what?

@renwoman: In Virginia, there’s a number that you call for state park reservations. It’s all online, but you can always talk to someone in the Parks and Rec office for clarification. Maybe you have the same option in your state!
We had our wedding in a park, and it was easy to shift our payment over to another location when we had to make a change (within the same park, different gazebo). From my understanding, the permit fee was more of a formality. Here, it was $75 and it seemed like it was just additional revenue for having a wedding there.
