- Wedding: November 2013
Im devastated. our venue has began construction and LIED to me about it! i was promised that there would be no construction and renovations started until 2014 and they started a month ago!! I’m so devastated. The place looks horrible!! There are scaffolding and nails and ladders everywhere:( the entire reason we booked the venue is because of the ambiance and the location/view. This is a destination wedding and everyone is traveling from Afar. if i wanted to get married in a construction zone i would have stayed in our home town and done it!!!! I’m even now Seriously reconsidering having this big wedding and having doubts. It’s so much stress I can’t even handle it anymore!! I’m so over paying this much money and not being treated like we even matter to our venue at all! Like hello its our WEDDING DAY! At the end of the day all I want is to marry my best friend and to have a beautiful day!! I have so much MONEY and work and time into this and if im not going to matter and be treated like we deserve, and were just another wedding to this place then i honestly don’t know how much more wedding planning stress I can take!! Im starting to realize spending this much $ on a wedding is stupid and what else we can use the $ on:( Should i cancel the big wedding and have a more simple backyard wedding like we were going to originally planning to have? It would still be beautiful, at my great grandmothers pineapple plantation and the home and estate I grew up at with her. Our date is November 17 this year. Thanks bees for any input.
Oh, also, I have a call into the venue and they are contacting the general manager who will contact the general contractor who will have an estimated completion date. But They have told me it isn’t supposed to be done until at least 2014 so I am pretty much sol. They told me ” well there are brides that are currently booking us with the property as is” totally not even offering to help. Mind you I booked them in August 2012 with a 25% deposit!. I already have over. 40% of the venue and catering paid with them and now they are pulling this! I guess I will ask them to take the next payment and– er–waive it lol or I will be taking them to court and going to go after getting my money back??? What do I do? suck it up? . I’m so sad:( literally we have all vendors booked there and they can’t travel to our home town (photog and videog will but not florist planner venue and some other misc vendors) wahhhh:(
any help and advice is greatly appreciated!!! 🙁 sad sad bride here!
