Uhhh, but it was, and you have a contract with them right?

Do you have wedding event insurance?

omg!!! This is my worst nightmare!

What’s in your contract?

How many people have you invited? Can you get a tent outside somewhere at this short notice? I’d ask the venue what they suggest.

Did you have a contract? I’m assuming you paid a deposit?

Start politely, and ask what they intend to do about it. Sure, your wedding wasn’t supposed to be booked, but it was. Their problem. Go higher and higher up until you find someone willing to do something for you.

What the heck?!! They should move the fundraiser!!  What does the contract say?  You probably will need a lawyer if they do not budge.  Sorry you are having to go through this.

I hope you signed a contract with them. This is their problem, not yours and they need to be offering potential solutions (bump the fundraiser, host your event in another room, find you a comparable event space nearby).

If I were you, I would look over the contract and go down there & talk to whomever is running the place. Go right to the top! What type of venue is it?

I’d be pulling out my contract.

They need to correct this.

@elired: Oh good, I’m so glad to hear you have a contract and record of payments. At the VERY least make sure you get a refund, but I think for the sake of their business they should be able to do something for you, like find another spot for you to go. I hope it works out, keep us updated!

What did they say when they called you to say they were double booked?  Did they seem sympathic? Or were they move like “sorry, you’re SOL.”

Oh my gosh…I feel soo bad for you 🙁
