I would be pissed off too, but if there’s nothing that can be done about it, then I guess you just have to let it go. So take some time to be angry/upset about it, because you are def. entitled to that, and then relax and breathe and let it go. That’s all you can do. I am sorry about your centerpieces though.

I would burn the place down….in my head.

If they threw them away, then there isn’t anything you can do about it at this point. Maybe they put them up somewhere and just don’t know it? I can’t imagine a venue just throwing that type of stuff away.

I think that the only thing you can do is perhaps show up with a picture from the night that includes the centrepieces.  Are they saying that you never had centrepieces or that someone from your wedding must have taken all of them home because they cleaned up at the end of the night and they weren’t there?

My big issue here is that they lied to you and that isn’t right.  It’s totally understandable you’re upset- you worked hard on something and now it’s gone.

If they continue to deny it, there isn’t much you can do…but that is awful and would definitely leave a bad taste in my month about the venue.  I’m sorry.  🙁

Oh I’m so sorry that’s so frustrating. I would be pissed too.

BOOO you (venue) whore….sorry I watched mean girls last night …so funny.

But seriously…like you or another poster said I doubt they would just throw something like that away?  Is it possible they just stored them somewhere?  A crazy aunt took all of them home? 

I totally agree it’s their responsibility (if that was what was agreed upon), but at the very least they should be able to say what they did with them…dumpster, crazy aunt, gave them to the chair guys?

-Good Luck and sorry you’re dealing with this…

@stellablue5997: Wow, that sucks. You can probably chuck it up to a communication failure on the part of the venue. Most weddings, people throw everything away, so unless they briefed every single worker, there’s a good chance they got thrown away by default. Sadly, a lot of vendors need babysitting to get it right :-(. Probably one of those wedding bummers that you’re going to just have to let go of….!

If it’s a business, like an official venue hall or restaurant, you could threaten to file a BBB report.  I would go back and show them pictures, ask them one more time, and then tell them that you plan to alert the BBB to the fact that they threw away X amount of dollars of your things.  That may make a big difference in their attitude.
