Well it happened… The reception site I fell in love with is screwing us over. I haven’t been able to reach the lady who runs the place, she hasn’t cashed our deposit check, and didn’t sign our contract. I should have kept looking when I first had trouble with her.
Now I’m searching again. The other place I liked got back to me tonight that they aren’t renting out because they’re doing renovations. Fiance doesn’t like the restaurant I mentioned (the windows look out over the river and the spa/salon I’m getting my hair and make-up done at is in the same building). Another is too far away/hard to find if you’ve never been there.
So I’m looking at this building in town that, while beautiful, is a bit expensive. They, also, already have an event that day, but it is in the banquet/meeting room. Ours would be in the private residence part and we would have to rent tables and chairs, which are included in the banquet/meeting room price (which happens to be cheaper). They require payment in full 90 days in advance, which would be right after Christmas. It would be close to $3000 with all the rentals and that doesn’t include the food or bar (this is a lot in our area).
I have to contact our DJ now and tell him we are changing places and then hope that he is on the approved vendors list. I wanted to get invitations ordered, but can’t do that without a place. What a freaking pain!
