- Wedding: October 2010
I’m new to this board but absolutely gobsmacked with anxiety since going to my reception hall this weekend.
My fiancee and I booked a smaller ceremony/reception hall in CT because we wanted a modest wedding and the packages this place had to offer were absolutekly killer!! We managed to get a package with this place that included our cake, venetian table, champagne toast, open bar for around $55 bucks a head! I know, killer right? So the venue is a little dated (huge suprise) and doesn’t really have scenic areas or photography but we decided it was more about food/party than anything else.
So, my fiancee and I head in to pick the menu, everything is great. The place is a restaurant too so we stay on for dinner. The food is INCREDIBLE. We’re thrilled so I make an appt for my FMIL and my Mom to visit the venue to pick out linens and figure some scematics out.
We arrive and the venue us FILTHY! The fish tank is grubby, the walls looks dirty, there are linens all over the floor and the worst part was inbetween them setting for another party they didn’t even vaccum the floors! I was mortified to say the least and am really now having second thoughts about this place.
We’ve already made our $500 deposit to hold our date which is October 23, 2010.
Does anyone have any advice!!
