    OMG you have the worst luck with venues! I am torn between waiting it out and getting your deposit back now… the money might be the least of your problems if they go out of business in three months! How will you find another venue that fast?

    If you don’t love the place, I’d find something more stable and book that instead

    I’d look for something else too.  One that you know can last at least a few more months.  Are you sure you’ll be able to get the deposit back?

    If it were me, I wouldn’t be able to stop worrying about it, since your wedding is in March. It seems like you never liked the place that much. Why don’t you look into other venues for a week or so before you ask for the deposit back? Maybe you’ll find something you love. Good luck!

    Definitely find another place – and ask about their finances too!  With so many business going under these days, I think those questions are perfectly fine.

    And I’m speaking from experience – my bridal salon filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy before I got my dress – and I never got my deposit back!

    Look for a new place. You weren’t really wild about the restaurant to begin with, and if you still have time to find a place you love, that would be the best option. You shouldn’t have to scramble to find another venue, or worse, constantly worry that you’ll have to scramble to find another venue.

    Dive into looking for a place that you’re in love with. It happened before, it can happen again!

    aw Nexus — I remember you telling this at HH! I would honestly get your deposit back and perhaps wait a little closer to your date to finalize another venue. Smaller bar/resturant venues run this risk all the time – playing musical chairs with them is not fun.

    I would reccomend the same as @gabgal…get the deposit back and pick another place, the easiest would be another venue that is larger/sharper contracts
