If it says in their policy or your contract that you don’t get a full refund for cancelling, I don’t think there’s anything you can do. You can always ask them for a full refund, but they aren’t obligated to give it to you.

I’m not sure there’s any way around your contract, unfortunately — that’s why it’s there. I know our deposit was non-refundable at our venue. 🙁

If you’ve signed a contract and put down a deposit, most venues will not let you get the deposit back. If it is stated in the contract I don’t see a way around it unless they want to bend the rules for you, which doesn’t happen often, I’m sorry.

That’s why you signed the contract– to protect both parties involved.  You agreed to forfit the cash by agreeing to their terms, so there’s really no way to get it back.

It sounds like they’ll give you half back if they rebook the room.  It’s possible they haven’t been able to rebook it.

Yeah, unfortunately, if you signed a contract, you forfeit your deposit. Especially if they can’t find anyone else to take that date. I don’t think you’ll be getting much back.

Is it a popular place? Maybe post on Craigslist or someplace that the space is available on your date to try and generate interest in the space.
