@tracyb3285:  Yikes x 10, I am so sorry you are dealing with this!

I just had a fight with our venue and aghh!  It’s so stressful, that is your MAIN vendor!

ugghh!

 

How stressful.  We booked with our venue and then a couple months later caught them on Hotel Impossible, a show about failing hotels.  Most of it was hype for the tv but FI and I both had mini heart attacks.

That really sucks that you and your SO ended up hating the place. I just don’t see anyone being forced into a venue, your SO attended a fucntion there, it was upscale, how is he suppose to know that they let the place go to shit.

Give SO a break, you both are now stuck with either  picking a new venue, or working around the fact that the place is falling apart and looks like crap. I wouln’t give them anymore money unless you are staying with this venue. Can you get out of it, how much  money are you losing, can you find another venue?

Good luck Bee!

I would be very upset if my venue did not let me in to take measurments! That’s ridiculous. I would call the owner and tell them you want to visit the venue or you will be looking elsewhere.

@tracyb3285:  i can’t believe that they won’t allow you in for measurements.  i would tell them that your wedding planner insists on going in to look around and take measures and view the property for decor ideas.  if you do go in (without a planner) tell them that she couldn’t make it.

@tracyb3285:   yes to the candlelight. That’s  our plan to hide the carpets.

 

Glad you’re feeling better!

Wow. I’m really sorry you’re going through this.

I don’t really have any advice other then to make sure you get to go back, not only to measure, but to figure out exactly how to decorate the venue, now you are aware of what it truly looks like.
