Water’s Edge has RUINED my wedding!!! They failed to notify us of MAJOR construction that was happening. We were promised an ocean view for our ceremony at the gazebo. A friend from work just happened to go to Water’s Edge a month before my wedding and brought back pictures to show me. The gazebo where the ceremony was to take place no longer had a water’s view. Now there is a huge, ugly condo as the background. We no longer have beautiful water’s view wedding pictures. Instead, we have an ugly building behind us and our wedding party. Water’s Edge never even notified us that this was happening. Not only was our one special day ruined, but we have wasted thousands of dollars. We NEVER would have gotten married there if we knew this. Water’s Edge is a TERRIBLE wedding resort and we would NEVER recommend them. They ruined our wedding day!!!

well the venue cant control where other corporations legally build condos, its not like they set out to ruin their business and reputation by this. have you phoned the venue to enquire, you cant be the only bride going thru this so maybe there are alternatives they already have in place

I am curious, how long ago did you visit this venue to miss construction of an entire condo? I have this feeling that even though the view is so important I almost feel not surprised that they didn’t let people know. I don’t know why I feel that way though, I think I’d have to see it in person, I mean it’s not all about the background when you’re outside, you know? And it could have rained and the outside could have been pointless. But I understand your frustration

@stor: Maybe I’m a little confused, have you had your wedding already or will you have your wedding in July 2011 (as your name says). Either way, I am sorry this happened to you. I hope that it gets better for you.

No it was the venue that decided to build the condos in front of a beautiful view. I’m getting married there in a couple weeks and just as devastated. I was down there today and the building is hideous! Its not right, they’re ruining weddings and now its too late to cancel. We’re paying top dollar to get married at a construction site!

Then don’t get married there. Find somewhere else.

@Ms Spitfire: not to sound rude, but I think suggesting the OP find a different venue with 6 weeks to go, during prime wedding season, is a bit ridiculous..
I think it’s justified to be upset that you paid for a site with an ocean view, & then they decide to do construction, take away that ocean view, & don’t inform you? Not okay. The church we’re getting married in is having construction done & a person from the church called me a 2-3 MONTHS ago, letting me know this was going to be happening around the time of our wedding, but assured me it would not interfere with our wedding & they would be sure to have it complete by June 25. She just didn’t want me to hear second hand from someone else about it & freak out. THAT’S what a decent venue would have done; let them know about the construction before they signed the contract, or at least have the decency to tell them about it with advance notice if they wanted to switch venues, or offer an alternative contingency plan that would satisfy all parties involved.

@Ms Spitfire: um hello?? Have you ever planned a wedding?
It is next to impossible to move a reception with 6 weeks to go. Not to mention, these couples picked this location for it’s WATER views and the venue management made a decision that virtually destroys what they’ve paid for.

have you ladies called the venue? Or gone down there and confronted them over this? I’d DEFINITELY be pissed and demanding a refund or alternate location!!!!
sooooo sorry you’ve gotta deal with this!!!!

The venue has offered some enhancements during cocktail hour and dessert. Thats it, its BS. There was no call, no email…NOTHING! I would NEVER had my wedding there if I knew there was going to be this huge eye soar. They scammed me along with a lot of other brides.
