    That really is terrible!  The coordinators at my venue help with everything and always try to get things added for free.  When my tasting sucked, he scheduled a meeting with his supervisors and the chefs!

    Since your wedding is so soon it would be really hard to change venues, but I would definitely get everything settled in writing as soon as possible.

    Does he have a supervisor you can talk to?  I’m sure they would not want any bad reviews of their site.

    That isn’t right of them. You signed the contract and gave deposits, so you should get what you agreed too. Even if they lost their license, they should still perform the services they agreed too in the contract at no extra charge. If anything, they should be giving you some money back since you aren’t using their liquor. If they won’t cooperate, I would say screw them all, buy your own kegs, barrells of ice and drinks, and a table set up with some liquors.

    I am not a lawyer, but I think if you have a contract that they NEED to honor it!!!  I would decline to sign another contract.  I know that your wedding is soon, but I would consider getting another venue, and getting any deposit back IF they will not uphold the contract.  Maybe you can tell them that you intend to callthe Better Business Bureau and make a complaint.  I wish you all the best.

    It’s confusing to keep track of all the back-and-forth.  I would sit down in person with your fiance, whoever is authorized to make decisions on behalf of the venue (the highest-up person you can contact), and the contract.  Go through it line by line, discussing each point that’s under contention.  Like, “point 1: set-up time”. Then write it out, get signatures all around, and you’re done.  I don’t think you’ll get very far if you keep settling on verbal agreements, because they’re hard to hold up.

    Not allowed to use the ice machine or the dishwasher? Do these people actually want customers?! I’m glad they’re being * a wee bit * more reasonable, but this is some petty shit goin on. Do they know the internet exists, and places like trip advisor, and our good selves here? So weird.
