Last night I realised the last payment on my wedding venue was due the day before. The contract states the wedding is subject to be canceled but we have the money just forgot to pay. I called the venue this morning and the wedding coordinator is not there until tomorrow. I am freaking out that they will cancel but they shouldn’t, right? It’s not like I remebered weeks later or that I’m try to scape the money together. I just need some reassurance and wanted to see if anybody out there has done something similar.

can you just drive over there and drop it off with someone? leave a message with the WC and say that you’ve left the cheque with so-and-so. When you drop it off, make sure you get a receipt or at least a final proof of payment. i doubt that they will cancel your reception but if you act now and drop it off, shows that you’re acting to correct the oversight. i wouldnt worry at all.

daenerys30: Depends on the venue. Our payment was due a week before and our venue coordinator was sick so she had her assistant meet with us. The assistant knew nothing about payments etc. yet so we chose to pay at the rehearsal the following Thursday. They honestly didn’t care.

daenerys30: I’d imagine the clause about cancelling is for couples who can’t pay rather than ones who forget and pay a day or two late. Calm down, get the money ready and ring asap tomorrow to pay it. I’d be very surprised if they cancelled on you, they’re getting the money and it wouldn’t be worth the bad press to cancel on a couple who can pay

daenerys30: I doubt they will cancel your wedding for one late payment one time, where you are less than a week late. It is less than 4 months unitl your wedding (by your date in your profile) and I really doubt they can fill the space in that time. Get the check to them ASAP, appologize for the delay, and most likely, nothing will happen. It is probably a threat more for someone who doesn’t get a payment to them for a month and keeps saying “I will, I will” 12 months out where they can still get the space filled.
Most venders don’t want to cancel a contract unless they are 100% sure they can fill the space. Why cancel a sure thing (your already partially paid for wedding) for a maybe?

well the problem is getting there. It’s a pretty good drive from my work and I can go at lunch due to meetings. My fiance is going to try to stop by this afternoon if work allows him. Trust me I would have been there and paid by now if I could.

You could courier it over perhaps?

daenerys30: I think you’ll be fine, especially since you contacted them and can pay immediately. It’s obviously not a huge issue if the coordinator isn’t even in the office or trying to reach you.

Call in and give a credit card number. They can take it immediately over the phone.

daenerys30: I’m sure they won’t just cancel a day or two after it was due. They probably haven’t noticed yet and if they DID notice, they’d probably call, let you know it’s due and when it would be cancelled due to non-payment.

Email/call the even coordinator. explain the problem. offer a CC number over the phone or a picture of a check you are mailing today (one of my vendors requested I text a pic of a check! hah!)
I made the initial deposits on time but I missed several other payments by a day or two and no one said a damned thing. You’ll be fine. 🙂

daenerys30: It’ll be fine. Just call the coordinator tomorrow and pay her. No biggie. <br /><br />They don’t want you to cancel any more than you want to cancel on them!

Relax, they want your money and they don’t want to deal with finding someone to fill your spot in 3 months. Call the coordinator first thing in the morning and arrange a time to drop off the check or pay via credit card.
