Oh. My. God. I don’t know what I would have done. Cried? Screamed? Thrown a temper tantrum? I’m glad you were able to make the best of it, but I would be demanding some sort of compensation for the loss – not just free, but paying you for the inconvenience… or at least a private party at their cost to “re-enact” your day. It’s not the same, but it’d be something!

So is your venue refunding what you paid them for the location, food, and alcohol? That is honestly the only remedy I’d accept from them. You deserve to have every penny back– how crazy!

It sounds like a pretty crappy situation, but it sounds like the restaurant handled it the best they could.  They didn’t charge you and, in fact, gave you a bunch of freebies.  There isn’t much more they can do.  I think it’s time for you to forgive and forget, unfortunately.

At this point there isn’t anything the restaurant can do for you to make it up.  The event is over.  What I think is important here is that the service improved after it was made known that there was a mistake.  They did the best they could at the time, and I think you should be happy with the fact that you didn’t have to pay for your reception!

I’m so sorry this happened to you. I really hope they do something to attempt to compensate. 🙁

I’m sorry but I wouldnt have paid a dime, they messed up and they should be paying you to compensate for messing up such an important day. What they did was totally inexcusable

so you did you get money back?  what exactly did the waive fees for.  I would be angry as all get out!!  but my continuing anger would be based on how much $$ i was out.

I would request the $800 back. I would word it nicely but let them know that no amount of monetary compensation can repair the stress they caused on your wedding day.

That’s horrible, I am so sorry.

I think you should write as many bad reviews as you can find sites to post them on.  Frankly, anyone restaurant that would behave like that should not be making money hosting receptions.

Oh no, that’s horrible.  I would be super pissed! I’m glad you were able to still enjoy your night… I would probably have been crying in a corner!!  I would definitely write a letter about how disappointed you were and let it be known on the internet as well!
