So our venue had a fire, it didn’t burn to the ground – but enough so that our chances of having the “wedding we planned for the last 14 months”, isn’t happening.
To add to that, I lost a bridesmaid last week. She is not coming – too much going on in her life to make it (long story).
I feel angry, frusturated, sad, heart broken…ugh.
And yet know how lucky I am, things could be much worse.
So this is my public vent…trying to just keep calm and carry on. Our venue coordinator is working hard on a contingency plan, so in the end we will still get married and have a wonderful time with our friends and family. The important things are still a go.
Anybody else have to deal with similar situations? What did you do to perk up?

Oh my goodness I am SO sorry. I hope everything works out for you in the end! I’m sure you will still have a beautiful wedding and I’m sure at some point you wont even be thinking about the fact that your venue had some last minute problems. Good luck to you!!

Oh Miss Chicken I am so sorry you are going through this. I don’t have any good advice to give but have lots and lots of virtual hugs to offer. ((((HUGS))))

Oh my gosh. I heard about this in the news and felt sad for anyone with a wedding there in the next couple of weeks, I totally forgot one of those people was you! I am so sorry. That is a really crappy situation. I am glad to hear they are trying to solve the problem for you though. You’re right, in the end you will still be married and it will be an amazing day, not matter where it happens 🙂

thanks for the well wishes 🙂
Yeah it was quite a shocker…and they are being pretty amazing. Weather permitting, we’re going to do the ceremony on the patio outside the Courtyard – a lovely dinner and show for people on other patios! But it should still be nice. As for the reception – it might be at Foundation Restaurant? We have a meeting tonight, where hopefully (Fingers crossed!) everything will be sorted and settled. Then I can get to my seating chart!! heh

ask for a discount 🙂
good luck..our venue burned down last month, and i know they are giving discounts to the couples that are being affected by the “alternative” plan. i would think you can get some money back. plus, they will probably go out of their way to make your day awesome since you’ve being affected.

Just think…now you know that “one thing that will go wrong” ahead of time! (tongue in cheek) Yes…it’s a huge thing, but karma has to kick in and make everything else go wonderfully smoothly. Good luck!

How did the meeting go?
I have never been to Foundation but I heard that’s where all of the Sens hang out, so it must be pretty nice!!
