Ok, when you gave him the first deposit did you get a contract? Something in writing? Read ALL over that. Because that will give you a lot of info. Also, is the guy who called you the same guy who’s your contact at the venue? If not then I’d contact the person who I was dealing with originally and ask what’s going on (after checking the contract).

Importantly, don’t stress. This just sounds like a huge misunderstanding somewhere to me.

Do you have the contact information for the person who told you that you had until closer to the wedding to pay?  It is sort of strange that you are being asked to pay a large part right now.  We had to put down a deposit of maybe 10% intially but the majority of the payment wasn’t owed until 2 weeks out from the wedding date.  Did you ever get the payment terms written out?  That’s the problem with having an oral agreement is that sometimes they can go back on it because you didn’t write it down on your contract.  I hope you can get something figured out and don’t have to put up all the money right now!

That is great you have that email!  As an agent of the company the girl made arrangements that need to be honored regardless if she had the authority or not.  You decided on this venue contingent on that offer.

I would take that email up the food chain at the venue if necessary. Sometimes going straight to the top is more effective than duking it out.
