Never had it happen but I would fight the church. YOU booked it first so YOU should get to keep it. Since the church made the mistake they should compensate the other couple for the already printed invites and tell them they can’t have it there or that THEY need to move the time up.

@magglemay-2013:  Id lie and tell them you have printed and sent your invites. And being the first bride booked you should have the church!!!

What the hell? I would be so pissed. Make them waive a portion of your fee since they’re pulling this BS (I don’t know how much you’re paying but if it’s not a lot, make them waive ALL of it to compensate you for your trouble). YOU booked it FIRST, and it was THEIR MISTAKE – wtf would they had done if you’d both had your invites printed? And it sounds like you’ve already booked a photographer.

 

So angry on your behalf!

@magglemay-2013:  why will moving it up to 12 rush pictures after? WOn’t it give you MORE time?  Shit happens, it sucks it’s not fair but it’s life. If that’s the worst thing that happens on your wedding then you lucked out. Just move it to 12, it will be fine!

Darth Vader said it right (and you don’t piss off that guy or you get strangled haha). You guys had it first, so you get to keep it. Simple as that – don’t back down. The church can pay for the reprinted invites of the other people. 

And I also don’t get why moving the ceremony earlier gives you less time for pictures?

In regards to rushing pictures, I think she means because they’ll have to clear out from the church for the next wedding…

 

Oops, took too long to type this. LOL.

Oh for pictures in the church I see. But are you not taking outdoor pictures or some at another location? On the plus side you’d have more time for those but that’s probably a huge gap for your guests. 

Regardless, I’d still fight the church over this. They are way in the wrong here.

I’d fight the church on this, personally.

@magglemay-2013:  Oh i see. You could do pics before hand with your girls and the guys can do their separate shots first? Then you’d have less pics to take after?

I agree with PP, fight the church. This is probably one of my biggest fears with my wedding.. we booked our church last April.. and when we met with the pastor he didn’t have a 2013 calendar yet so he wrote it on a notecard and stuck it on the bulletin board in his office. Makes me worried it will be thrown away at some point..

Bottom line is, YOU booked it first, YOU should get it.

@magglemay-2013:  I agree with PP, you booked first so you should get the church for the time slot you booked it for.
