Oh no. That’s horrible. Take a few deep breaths. It’s not ruined- there are a ton of spaces to throw one hell of a party in SF. We looked at a lot of them, PM me if you need some ideas.Plus, you are getting married in ‘off season’ so you may be able to get a great deal somewhere else.

All hope is not lost. Hugs.

The other thing is that if the management person just recently passed away, the bar may hire someone to replace him eventually.  Right now they may be too overwhelmed to deal with any new business, but eventually someone should take over if this was profitable.  You should start looking at other venues as a backup, but it is possible that the situation will be resolved with this bar in a month or two.

Oh my gosh, I’m SO sorry! That’s really awful. We also had our heart set on one venue, and luckily, it worked out, but I can’t imagine if they backed out on us.

Stay positive. The good news is, you still have time to look for another venue. Thanks about what if this had happened a few months before your wedding, AFTER you signed a contract! If you’re in SanFran, you probably have a lot of options. And just remember, the most  important thing about your wedding is that you two get married. Everything else is icing on the cake!

Keep your chin up … it really WILL work out.

I’m so sorry to hear this. My sister had the same thing happen, although her place folded (luckily they got the deposit back) and although they didn’t have their wedding at their dream place, they still had an awesome time. Good luck!

sorry to hear that.  but if you didn’t have a deposit down there isn’t much you can do or much they owe you.

maybe you can check in with the venue again in a couple of weeks. if someone has only just died then at the moment there is too much happening for managment decisions

I’m sorry.  I agree with Eloping though, check back in a few weeks after people at the venue have calmed down some.

Oh no! I am so sorry! That sucks. My venue had a minor mishap and I made sure the contract stated that they owed me twice my wedding budget if they canceled on me. Make sure you have a similar contract down when you settle on your next one. Good luck!
