@shoemaven0917: Yes… we had to return to a venue we had originally tossed out and, thank goodness, it was still available, even after we had rejected them initially. We had to do a bit of tweaking to the guest list and find some creative solutions to space issues, but now we are feeling much better about everything. You may have to make some sacrifices (or maybe you’ll luck out and find something awesome super quickly), but I’m confident it will work out. 

Good luck with everything! 🙂

I’m glad everything is working out for you! But this old venue seems pretty stupid to me. Why cancel on people with the possibility of having to compensate them for their time and money lost, etc. when you are trying to have money to renovate? Lack of thinking on their part I guess. Anyway good luck and hopefully they will have to compensate you.

Wow.  Good to hear things are working out!  I’d hope your original venue would cover the difference.  You are such a calm person…I’d be freaking out!

I think you have the perfect outlook when it comes to planning a wedding.  Most women get caught up in the small details and stress over things the can not control.  Women seem to forget that what is important are the vows you and your fiance are making; not the wedding itself.

I’m so happy to hear you got things worked out!

What was the original venue?  I’d like to be forewarned for future event planning!

@shoemaven0917: that is the right attitude to have – some times its better to just take that approach then to get riled up about something you can’t change – im glad you found another venue though!

Omg, I just wanted to say that I can’t believe this happened but you are definitely handling it with so much calm and rationale that I have to applaud you. Glad to hear you’ve found a new location, and I hope that you have no trouble getting the compensation you deserve.

Oh Wow!! This is awful. But you obviously are handling it well. My mom always tells me everything happens for a reason, so I am thinking even though you loved your venue you will find one that you love more. That doesnt help the fact that you could be stressed now!! Sorry this is happening and good luck on your search.
