I’m a bit put off by the snarky girl at venue B.  That would be offputting to me (to have to deal with her).  Is there anyone else you can work with there?

I don’t think it’s a big deal to hold both spots… but try to make up your mind as soon as possible!

What’s the price difference? If it’s something you can absorb without too much pain, I’d do it… you don’t get many chances in life to do something like a wedding. 😉 If not, I’d just take Venue A and learn to love it!

I’m sure the reason that the woman from venue B is snarky with you is because her paycheck is based on it, that said, she shouldn’t be rude to you.
But right now, hotels are having a hard time booking business and when they hold space for you, they have to put someone else who wants to book it on hold. Don’t take it to heart, book the venue that feels right to you.

I can totally understand (I’m not even engaged yet but I look and think about venues all the time). It’s a HUGE decision. But for your vendors, it’s a business decision, there are some amazing people out there who take to heart making your day special….but for a lot of them, they also have other brides and maybe some corporate guests on the same date so it’s a very fine careful line to keep everyone happy, to make everyone’s event special, and to be able to make it work logistically with their staff.
They want your day to be wonderful, but they also have a lot of other people expecting the same thing.
