    I wouldn’t say anything unless they contact you about it.

    I’d wait until they ask 🙂

    Agreed, I’d probably ignore it unless they called, and then say you had mailed it, followed up, and gotten told that they had received it but not cashed it.

    I’d wait until they ask 🙂 you have the upper hand at the moment. If they say nothing then keep your cash, if they ask you to pay, then do so, but leave a bad review

    I’m with the pp. Wait until they ask and then tell them that you had mailed it. I would hold on to the returned envelope as proof though. If they havent returned your deposit by then, you can subtract that and send them the rest.

    Maybe somebody marked that you did pay even though they never received it.  Who knows?  Keep the proof for just in case it becomes an issue but I agree with PPs, wait for them to contact you about it.  Based on the issues that you had withy our wedding it sounds like they have an issue with organization anyway and they will probably not figure it out for a while if at all.  Depends on whether they run an audit at the end of the year.

    I would keep the enveloppe and cheque for proof that it was sent but returned to you for some odd reason. The other cheque that was sent to the same address got cashed. Do you have a bank that gives you a copy of the cashed cheque so you have proof of who cashed it?Then keep those two together in a safe place and if they contact you about it, show them the cashed cheque along with the returned enveloppe and uncashed one. Then ask them what they would like for you to do with the uncashed cheque. You can speak then about the deposit and how their end of the bargain wasn’t met, and suggest that they refund you the deposit plus the time of cleaning up and no-air conditioning, unavailability when called etc…
