At least the guests at the two weddings didn’t get in to a brawl resulting in a heart attack! 🙁
No one would intentionally serve cold food and stale cake, and the other things seem like they were the result of the best choices they could make for their day…

@vintagebride143: Wow! The tips you mentioned shouldn’t even be mentioned! People should already know it’s common sense! Even if the couple were on a low budget (which is the only thing that makes sense of why they chose that venue) their standards should not be lowered to that extent! One way or another it probably is possible to get a great venue at a reasonable price.

@vintagebride143: was there NOTHING redeeming about this poor bride’s day? I feel sorry for her.

I’m not entirely sure what the point of this post was? “sharing the experience” is one thing, but its kind of pointless if you don’t name the venue until promted for it by another bee?
If you dont name the venue first and foremost, then you didnt really intend to warn future brides, you just ended up sounding like you are dumping on some poor girl’s special day.
I agree with @honeybee1999
Tell us about some of the good things? Was the bride beautiful? Were the vows hearfelt and touching? Was there a cute little Grandma dancing away to Pacsha?

@Mrsseaton: I didn’t realize that as a guest of a wedding and member of this forum, that it would be a problem for you if I share my experience. I’m not “dumping” on anyone’s wedding–for you to even mention that seems rude, and somewhat hauty on your part. If you read my post I mentioned that the couple are very good friends of mine. As I mentioned, the brides family and bridal party had simular issues–and everyone tried to make the best of it. The kind of wedding they had doesn’t speak for their character, but mostly for hasty decisions and poor service on the part of the venue.
I didn’t realize I didn’t mention the venue, until someone asked about it–and I posted it readily.
I wrote this original post the next day while attending to my SO, who was suffering with extreem food poisioning, as a result of the night before. so if i wanted to share my experience, I don’t think that should be as issue. Just as it wouldn’t be an issue if you had a simular experience and wanted to share. Isn’t shairing the point of a community?
The bride was gorgeous, and she married her soul mate–in the end, of course that is the most imporntant thing here.
