Hmm..I think its a very risky situation and on top of everything that goes through planning a wedding , you dont need to be worried about if you will have a venue or not. Also how you will know 100% and how you are going to start planning your wedding if a venue is not actually booked?

I would seriously consider finding another place that will make it much easier on you and your family.

Over the course of wedding planning, you are going start worrying about the most mundane, detailed things (should I use this word on the inivtation?  are these flowers the right shade of red? etc, etc).  I’m not sure that I’d want to be worrying over something as big as the venue on top of all the other worry! 

If you’re willing to deal with the nervous family and possible worry, go for it.  But consider if that extra stress on you and your family is going to be worth it in the long run.

i think that it would still be honored. it would take a hardcore a-hole of a new owner not to. Do you have a written contract? if you can, draft one up that states something like the old/current owner must include your event in any property transaction that occurs between now and your wedding date. that way you’re covered or at least have recourse if they do try to screw you over (which i really don’t think they will!). then you can just be like “it’s okay mom *blam! show contract!* i’ve got it covered”. i say go for it, it’s perfect!

This happened to a friend of mine and the new owners were great! Everything went off fine. If this is the venue of your dreams don’t worry about it. And honestly – if it hasn’t sold in 3 yrs it most likely won’t sell anytime soon.

I wouldn’t do it. Unless the only thing the venue could be used for is events. Is there a chance a new owner would do something different with the property? Reality is, if current special events are a contention point between the seller and the buyer, I’m pretty sure the seller is more interested and vested in selling the property.
