How did the new venue meeting go?  (Have you gone yet… not sure when you posted this). That sucks about your venue but good thing you still have some time and options.

We have not had to switch our reception venue but we just booked our ceremony venue (yeah, we did it backwards but we lucked out). With just over 2 months to go, we were lucky to find a ceremony location close to the reception venue in our price range and what we originally wanted.  Good luck.

We had to switch venues 3 months before the big day. The first place was dishonest with us about exactly what we were getting, so we ended up not doing business with them. Luckily, we were able to find another venue right away. The hardest part was that the original venue was outdoors, with trees and grass. Our venue that we ended up with was a hotel, so it was a very different atmosphere and I had to change a lot of the decorations that I had already made. Hopefully you’re able to find a new one soon, and it wont be too different than what you originally wanted!

I had to switch my reception venue from a really pretty ranch that went perfectly with my shabby/chic theme, to the fellowship hall at the church >.> I wasn’t happy, but I have 6 weeks left and everthing sort of fell apart about 3 weeks ago so I’m going to just have to make it work. 

I’m happy to have the reception hall, because there is literally no where else, but it is probably not going to be my DREAM reception, but at this point as long as we get through it I will be happy!!

Unlike PP I’m not going to redo a lot of my decor, I’m going to keep it the same – rustic/shabby chic, and hope that it winds up looking okay!  (Seriously though, 6 weeks out, all that matters is getting it OVER)
