Oh no!  That’s so horrible!  I think this is the point where you get all your friends and family to call around as much as you can to try and find a location.

Oh no! Any kind of back-up plan? Can the pastor perform the service at a different church or something? That is ROUGH!!! Good luck hun!

Oh no!  When will you know for sure if you can have it at the church or not?  Can you call the church and beg?  What is the pastor doing to fix this situation?

note to everyone: double check things before the wedding – all vendors, all venues!!  Even if you’re sure!  It is very unfortunate that this should happen to anyone. 

Hopefully you can arrange something – different time of the day, different area of the church, something close by, can you do it outside in a church garden or across the street nearby in a park or something – what about your reception venue?

The pastor should certainly be doing EVERYTHING possible to fix this mistake.  If he can’t make it work at his church.. he likely has contacts at other churches in the area.  If that falls through what about your reception site?  Do you they have a location where you could have the ceremony?  Hopefully you’ll come up with a solution ASAP so you can let all your guests know about the change.  Good luck!

I’d get everyone in the wedding party to find a new location.. AND A NEW PASTOR.

Perhaps the pastor should pay part or all of that fee – although that fee is pretty standard so it should have been budgeted in when planning.  Glad it all worked out!!

I’m glad everything worked out!

$375 does seem a little high, though.  I assumed $150-$250 was expected.
