I looked in my venue’s menu last week and found that it said “Beer and Wine Package and Non-alcoholic bar available Sunday-Thursday for $4 less per person”. Fiance and I took this to mean that we could do beer wine and soft drinks for $4 less per person so I emailed the venue to ask about the beer and wine option and they write back saying it doesn’t exist for such and such a reason… is anybody else confused?
Anyways, I emailed them back to ask the question as well, so I’ll find out if they’re tricky worders or just liars… I also took the opportunity to ask them why it was going to cost me $4 per person to rent chair sashes when it costs $1 to buy them online… wtf? I feel like I’m dealing with criminals.

Its actually making me uncomfortable to work with them, I mean, I’ve given them clost to $8,000 already so I guess there isn’t much I can do but WTF

I’m totally confused. So if you’re having an event Friday or Saturday it’s (let’s say for example) $20 for the bar package. If you’re having an event Sunday through Thursday, it’s $16 per person. According to my calendar you’re having a Sunday wedding and they want to charge you the full rate and not the $4 reduced rate? Is that correct?

@kingytobe: sounds like their pretty greedy and want all the $$ they can get!

Is your wedding on a Sunday through Thursday? If so, the lowered rate should apply. The chair cover issue seems pretty common. Our venue wanted $4. for each plus $1.00 per chair to tie on the sashes, but I provided my own and our volunteers did the tying.

@kingytobe: The bar thing sounds sketchy, but as far as the $4.00 chair rental goes, I would find out how much they do for you. If you brought your own $1.00 chair covers, you’d probably have to iron them before hand to get out the package creases, set them up yourself, and then take them down and wash them (and possibly re-iron them if you wanted to sell them).
I rented chair covers/sashes from an outside rental company for 2.50 each and just had to do setup/take down myself.

Yes, my wedding is on a Sunday. I’m thoroughly confused as to why they’re saying it doesn’t exist when it states it in their package. I know I’m probably going to have to deal with the overprices chair sashes, I should have expected that when I overpaid for everthing else lol but, honestly I’m so mad that they lied that I’m looking at other venues (which I know is impossible at this point) but at least its making me feel a little better
