@IzzyBear:  Big corporations aren’t all bad. Can they raise rates if it specifies what you’re paying in an existing contract? I am not sure that’s legal.

I think you’re right about being most worried about renos… but hotels do renos all the time and I’d be surprised if they did it when there are weddings going on. I assume it’s a popular wedding location, and it’s not like your wedding will be the only one they’re worried about. More like they have a bunch of weddings booked for several months of the year.

It would be logical that they only take bookings up to a certain time in advance, and then they will stop taking bookings once it’s uncertain as to what’s happening.

If they did do renos during your wedding, I assume they would move you to an alternate location within the hotel. If this is a small hotel I get how that could be impossible… but I wonder if there’s a way to put some sort of guarantee in the contract that you’ll be allowed X amount of space on your day or whatever. If it says in the contract that you’re entitled to use rooms X, Y, Z, don’t they have to honor it? Even if it’s new ownership?

I had something kind of similar happen.  The place where I had my wedding went up for auction like 4 days before my wedding.  It ended up not selling and staying with the original owners.  But they had assurred me that they had to honor all the existing contracts as part of any transfer of owenership.  Just my personal experience.

I wouldn’t trust the wedding coordinator.

  1. They might not be telling her much or they are trying to reassure her so she doesn’t leave.
  2. They need your deposit money. They would be in deep trouble if all the weddings suddenly left and they had to refund the money.
  3. If you left and you didn’t get your money back, they might still need your wedding on the books to show potential buyers that there is a revenue stream.

Get the wedding insurance and find several back up places. If the place suddenly bails on your wedding, you’ll be in competition with other brides too.

@littlemisshostess:  not to mention the permitting, environmental issues, geotechnical investigations, permission from the city, etc. If the place is a historical landmark, there might even be archeological investigations required.

That’s really crummy that there is so much uncertainty. I know what a pain it is to think about possibly having to change the venue. Hope that soon there are some clear answers.
