Our caterer just told us that our venue is/has been reposed. We haven’t been able to get in touch with them yet, so I have no details at all expect for 1 article I found online which confirmed the rumor.
I don’t even know where to begin….I feel crushed.

I’m so sorry about that. I wouldn’t expect that you will get your deposits back. It seems like people in this situation never do.

Sorry to hear that! My friend went through this last year with a venue here in Houston. They are still fighting to get their deposit money back which was 12K. She had made some payments on top of the deposit. I would start a place on FB or blog for other brides to join together on this because you’ll need each other’s support. Good luck!

wow this is awful news!! the good thing is that you still have quite a few months before your day….i say get back on the grind to find a new reception spot (put recooping money right now from them onthe backburner)…work with your caterer, they might even be able to make a few suggestions and help you out with finding a new place!
im so sorry 🙁 i really hope everything works out, but the good thing is that you still definitely have time on your side right now.

I’m so sorry, but you will find something you love.
We had lots of issues with things closing, moving, changing their name during our planning. We kept telling ourselves that it was for a reason, and something better was just around the corner.

I’m so sorry. It will work out, just keep telling yourself that. It’s good that your wedding is off season and still a bit away so you’ll have time to get a new place.

Did you buy wedding insurance? If so, the company should be able to get your deposit back!

Oh thank you so much for your support. Deposit issue actually isn’t much of an issue. We were renegotiating the contract anyway, so nothing had been signed. I guess it isn’t as bad as it could be. I am just so overwehlemed thinking we are going to need to go through this whole process again – ie finding a venue.
EDIT: I am feeling a lot better about this, at least more optimistic that this time around, the search will be more productive and less overwhelming. You guys are the best!!

Oh, no, I’m so sorry. Do you mind if I ask which venue in Philly it is? Maybe I can help with some other recommendations.

Sorry to hear about your venue. What type of venue are you looking for? Maybe the bees could help you find another?

oh wow! I’m sorry, but atleast on the bright side no contract was signed. I hope you’re able to find another venue that will be 10 tiems better than this!

That’s awful! At least you aren’t losing any money. I am sure that you will find a place that you love even more than this one!
