That is such a tough decision! Is there anyway you can get in touch with family members to call some of the Out of Town guests to see how inconvenient it would be for them? As you haven’t sent out the actual invites, I don’t see it being too much of a problem (lots can change between Save-The-Date Cards going out and the actual wedding).
I would be totally miffed at your current venue though. Surely they cannot ‘tack-on’ extras that they deem mandatory AFTER you signed a contract with them? If you really love this venue, I would fight them tooth and nail for it! Even go so far as to get a lawyer involved.

I’m soooooo sorry to hear of your frustration.  Is there anyone else (maybe a supervisor or boss) at your current venue? I would try contacting their corporate office (if there is one) and letting them in on what’s going on.  You may be able to work something out and avoid any future misunderstandings.  This is definitely a hard decision to be faced with.  Good luck and remember whatever you choose your day will be absolutely perfect! 🙂

HI!  Speaking from the point of view of someone who had to change our venue with 6 weeks to go…  GO WITH YOUR GUT! 

If you feel weird about something – there’s a reason.  If you feel like you’re going to get screwed over, you probably will.  As far as the Out of Town guests being inconvenied, being 3 months out if you let everyone know now…  Most airlines and hotels would be willing to change reservations for a small fee.  If it was a month before those fees would probably be higher.

I learned my lesson the hard way by not listening to my gut; just listen to what you’re feeling and take it from there.

Either way – good luck and no matter what everything will be wonderful!
