What was the venue?

Did you have a legitimate quote for the first time she quoted you? A lot of times, those quotes have expiration dates of 30-60 days.

If, however, there was no expiration date for the first quote, then the venue should be held accountable to it. Explain there was no expiration date and go higher up if necessary.

girlfromtexas1088 :  What is the break down of the costs? Is 20k for the ceremony and reception, I’m struggling to understand how it could be 20k for the ceremony alone? How much did you pay for the reception?

If it’s in writing then I would definitely query it.  As PP said it could be that there is an expiration but even so I can’t imagine it would jump by $12,000.

Maybe she quoted off season or a Friday/Sunday? What does the 20k include? There are a lot of venues in this area with spend minimums so that could include food/drink/rentals?

Did you sign a contract that outlined the costs?

Nothing is definite until you have a contract signed by both parties. Start with writtten contracts and go fron there.

Nothing matters until you sign a contract. I can’t believe you are this close to your wedding and don’t have a contract?! I think you can use the original email to your advantage and maybe they will honor the original pricing but still they don’t have to honor anything they didnt sign a written agreement for.
