@wahine777:  YIKES!!!  Friendship OFF!  I would send an email, since I never get everything across that I want to when I’m upset. Hopefully they can understand what a disaster this is for you, and that you already have everything committed for that date (same as ‘selling tickets’, no? Flowers / travel / ceremony booked)…

 

GOOD LUCK!

no money had changed hands but what about a contract?

and too BAD they’ve been selling tickets – you’ve been planning an entire wedding around it. a soccer party can take place almost anywhere and does not need the level of planning or fancy ness etc that a wedding does, they can find an alternate venue way easier than you

 

don’t let them just cancel you! fight for your venue and if they allow you to stay, get it in writing.

Sounds like they cancelled on you because they thought you’d take it better because of your amity with them.  Throw that out the window and ask them why this other function is more important than your WEDDING.  You might find it’s because the soccer place are spending more cash/are repeat customers and they don’t want to lose out financially.

But stand your ground this is your day – don’t stand for it!

Holy crap, I’d be pissed. Do you have any kind of contract?
