Good luck with everything! 🙂
Good luck with everything! 🙂
We’ve now got a hold on another venue, a banquet and catering hall that has a space that can accomodate. Its associated with a major restaurant, so I know the food will be good. Is it my first choice? No- its fairly average looking. But if I don’t find something else soon, I can dress it up and it will fit the bill, and we will still be married which is the important thing!
Update- So, at last post, we had secured a hold on a banquet facility, which was kind of meh, but would do in a pinch… except for the fact that I would still need to find a separate venue for the ceremony. Well, yesterday I spoke with the catering manager of a beautiful local golf course that can accomodate us for both the ceremony and the reception! The wedding will maintain a similiar look and feel (outdoor ceremony, Ukrainian dinner) and the staff there seem most accomodating and ready to help us out in a pinch!
I feel relieved… the big difference is that this venue is a bit more expensive than the other venue. But, given the information we have been finding out about the situation with the original venue, we are confident that we have a very good case for compensation- our expectation is that they will cover the difference in cost for a comparable ceremony and reception at the new venue, as well as some additional transportation costs since the new venue is a little bit out of town.
It’s not over yet, hopefully they will agree to a settlement and we won’t have to take them to court, but I’m breathing a little bit easier knowing that things are working out for the best. We’re going to have just as beautiful of a wedding, but with much better service!
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.
Good luck! Sorry the first venue backed out on you but it sounds like the new place is great!
I love your attitude. Hopefully the entire thing turns out much better than you ever imagined! With such a great outlook you deserve it. Good luck!
Just read your update- good for you!!!!
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!
Wonderful! Great to hear 🙂
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.
