You don’t sound like a zilla at all… they sound like they are trying to squeeze every last dime out of you that they can get! I agree that they are making a lot more money off of your wedding so it really doesn’t make any sense that they are not only nickel and diming you do death but being incredibly rude about it in the process.

Too bad there isn’t more time to switch venues!

Wow, that is really terrible!!!  I’m so sorry to hear of the crap your venue is pulling!!  Do you /have you actually signed a contract now?  If so, I would check all details now, so nothing else “pops up” on your wedding day.  I wish you all the best. Good thing you did check on things!!  BTW-I purchased small clear plastic plates at DollarTree  They had either 8 or 10 plastic plates tor $1.00  I think 300 clear plastic forks at Costco for the cake . I hope that everything else goes very smoothly for you.

That is crazy – and no I don’t think you sound “zilla” (I like that one!) at all.

We nixed one of the veues which I sort of liked, because they were starting to pull this crap on us and I just knew that using them would turn into a money vortex. 

Do you have any correspondences or notes from your intial meetings in which they quoted you for the lower price on the chairs?  I would call, show up, or email back with that information and point blank call them out on it. That is not ok – oh and don’t get me started on BYOpaper plates!

Gosh, I sort of sound like a ‘zilla now don’t I?

omg, I feel you!!! I’ve had many similar problems with my venue and I know how frustrating it is! We almost walked away from our venue twice because they kept telling us so many different things, contradicting themselves, etc. It took weeks to get a straight answer out of them regarding who was providing the tables and chairs!! Then two different vendors tried to charge us for the tables and chairs LOL! If I had known how difficult the venue was going to be, I probably would’ve steered cleared. As much as I hate to hear someone else is going through the same thing, I’m glad to know I’m not alone! At this point, Fiance and I just laugh about it. We’ve kind of thrown up our hands and basically said, Oh Well. Whatever happens on our day, we just have to go with it. I’m done getting angry about it. (Although ask me again in about a month and we’ll see, right?!) Oh and the other thing we did was hire a Day-of-Coordinator so I don’t have to deal with these people AT ALL on my wedding day. 🙂
