Did you have a contract with them? How were they legally able to break it?

Ummm WTF??  SPAGHETTI BINGO NIGHT???

OP, I am SO sorry this is happening to you.  I just can’t even fathom someone being so ridiculous.  I think it’s good that you’re going to reach out to the principal.  Maybe if they have any heart at all they’ll change their mind.

When had you booked this venue?  Why did it take so long for them to get it counter-signed?

I don’t understand how this could happened. Who did you talk to set up this contract and agreement with? Did you put a deposit down? sorry you are going through this.

wait what ? they cant just move your reservation.. I dont want to be the one to think worst case, but something seems a tad shady. were u told by your coordinator u had a contract? A contract is binding where both parties sign, if the principal didnt sign on behalf of the school, u didnt have a contract. how long ago had u signed this so called contract? And your coordinator didnt even bother telling u that the other party didnt sign? Yeah I’d be ticked off with this coordinator person for not speaking up and saying nothing was official earlier. 

& I wont even address them telling u no for bingo night, lmao. u have to laugh at that seriously.

I would be pissed at the coordinator for not having them sign it that day. Both parties should sign the contract together

Vermont2015 .. But im also paranoid so I wouldnt have taken this contract as a real thing until the other person signed. This whole situation is crappy and im sorry this happened to u. off first glance I see something called dogpatch wine works on a bridal blog and their rental fees start at $1500 but go up to 5K and they can accomodate 250 but it says they have limited availability in the fall.

So incredibly annoying and frustrating!! The school shoudl not have even taken your deposit without signing the contract. If the contract was never signed, they are able to refuse. I’m sorry, bee! The church we were initially going to get married in accepted our deposit, then I called to follow up a couple weeks later and they told me they had double booked and unfortuantely we couldn’t get married there. UGH. so frustrating! Just know that it will turn out wonderfully one way or another!

Some ideas…I love doing stuff like this! Your best bet may be going with a city owned hall to keep the price down.

Daly City has a few venues that can handle 200-300, all within your price range:

The Municipal Services Buiding Social Gall in South SF would work!

SF Rec & Parks Rentals:

Mission Blue Center looks pretty!

City of Burlingame Recreation Center:

Anyway, just search “City of ______ facility rentals” and see what you get! Good luck!

mintycakes:  so technically nothing was official since he did not sign? Did they say you had the venue from the start or that they would let  you know? It amazes me how these places can cancel and ruin plans and be like oh here is your money back but the minute you break the contract it’s like oh you don’t get any of youe money back and we actually need more since we lost money. Seriously this should work both ways. They wasted your time. Anyways i hope you find a venue for your wedding. If you do find it for that date we will be wedding day twins.
