@mcp3x:  I can’t answer all of your questions.  And this definitely isn’t my field.  But here are my thoughts anyway.

If the cocktail area was a huge selling point for you this would be non-negotiable for me in the contract. You’d be hugely disappointed if you couldn’t have it.  So I’d try and negotiate with the venue.  I can’t think why they wouldn’t know now if it’ll be available, it might be that they’ll try to host two events on the same day, in which case they’ll be trying to earn two fees.  I wouldn’t suggest offering to pay more unless you’re deperate for it, but I would ask for the amendment to the contract on that count.

I think it’s okay to reserve the right to change prices, but I think there should be some protection.  If the estimated cost is $10,000 now but they reserve the right to change this then it could go up to $1 million (it’s unlikely, but contractually legal).  So I’d personally like something that says that any change will no more than an X% increase of the estimated cost.

I’m surethere are plenty of bees with more (and better) advice! 🙂
