- Wedding: August 2016
Long post here. I have a problem with my venue and could use some advice. A few weeks ago, the owner of our venue decided to lease out the event space to rhe company who handled their catering. We got a letter letting us know this change and that they would honor our contract.
Today I email the new lady in charge asking to schedule our rehearsal. We had planned to have it the evening before. The lady emails me back saying we can schedule it the Thursday before, but we couldn’t schedule it for the Friday before until two weeks before the date because they could have another event.
This was very upsetting because we were told by the original owner that they only schedule one wedding per weekend and that we would be able to come on Friday to make sure everything looked ok and do any last minute decorating.
I emailed her back saying she could put us for late the Thursday, but we prefer Friday. I looked through our contract and there wasn’t any mention of the day before. I found an email from the original owner saying that we would have access to the venue the evening before for the rehearsal. I emailed her again forwarding the email, and I didn’t get any response. She had responded to my first email saying she would put Thursday down, but she ignored my second email even though it was sent before her response.
I emailed her back to get a response, but she hadn’t responded. I really don’t want to have it on Thursday because my fiancé and I won’t be able to get off work until late. Also, some members of the bridal party are out of state and won’t be in town until Friday. It stresses me out that the venue won’t be set up the day before for me to see before the wedding.
I plan on giving the lady a call tomorrow. Do I have any ground to stand on since it isn’t in our contact, but I have it in an email?
