- Wedding: July 2010
Okay, I was wondering if anyone has a problem with their venue. Ours is in the same location and it’s beautiful, but the venue coordinator lied to us about various costs (started at one price and just kept going up on multiple things), what was allowed (our dogs there, decorations), booking our band (which we lost), help setting up (first we had help now we don’t), and my FI’s favorite beer (not allowed to be sold in that state, but we were told it was and given a price). Our wedding is in less than a month and they still haven’t done anything to make things better.
We’re no longer dealing with the venue coordinator; we’re now talking to her boss, but even he can’t get anything done. We’ve also talked to the CEO of the company and still nothing. Besides the wedding, 30+ of our friends along with us are staying on property, some of our family members are staying on property as well, we’ve booked activities through them the day before the wedding, and we’ve gone there a lot, even looking at buying land from them.
We’ve been dealing with this for so much of our short engagement that we just booked our honeymoon out of stress and I’m not happy about it.
And don’t even get me started on the band. Had the Venue Coordinator given us the contact info or actually talked to the band leader, we’d have a 17 piece jazz band for an amazing deal (while staying in budget). Now, that is not even possible.
I’m not trying to be a bridezilla, but I really feel like they ruined my wedding. I know, no matter what, I’m marrying McGroom, but, when he’s pratically in tears because nothing is going right with our venue, I just feel so hopeless and like the whole wedding is going to be as horrible as all the 3.5 months we’ve been dealing with this place (since our engagement is a total of 4.5 months, they’ve ruined the happiness of our engagement).
Does anyone have any ideas on what to do? No one seems to care about us and we just want good beer (VERY important to FI), good music, and good fun. Things that go with a wedding.
