Look at your contract if there was anything signed for a deposit. Most of the time, you don’t get a deposit back. Maybe you have a leg to stand on since they booked the date you had on hold, but if that all wasn’t in writing, I really don’t know how you can prove anything. 

Sorry, bee.

I understand it’s frustrating, but it doesn’t sound like they screwed you…a date is never secure until a contract is signed and you paid in agreement with the date you have. If the rental houses on site are not part of the contract then you don’t have a claim to them either. 

Most people don’t book a wedding with less than 6 months to go.

futuremrsjackson25: You signed the contract knowing it was a new date so for that point you will just have to suck it up and forget it. However if the accommodation was in your contract and you were led to believe it was available for you to use then you may have a cause for refund. Is that in your contract or is it separate? If it’s separate then I wouldn’t expect a single cent back.
