- Wedding: December 2012
So I think I am in the middle of a meltdown. Let me explain why.
We have had nothing but issues with our venue since the planning process started. From very strict rules, to overcharging and months of no responses, I am at my wits end. My original wedding coordinator with the venue is no longer working with the venue. About a month ago, I get an email from the new coordinator and essentially had to start ALL OVER with a new person, since the old one really did not keep records or do anything properly.
So here is my problem that has sent me over the edge:
My venue is now saying that the videographer I have signed a contract with over 5 months ago is not allowed on the premises. Heres the kicker, I ran my options by my 1st coordinator before I even signed the contract with my videographer and she assured me that it was okay for me to have them there. However, there is no proof. This was all done/said during an appointment I had with her before I booked my videographer. Besides for the fact that I would be out a large amount of money if I break the contract, I DO NOT WANT any other videographer. I have been through every videographer in the area and none of them can even touch the quality of the one that I signed. I like their style, all of their videos and the packages they offer.
So I guess my question is, how should I approach this. I already told my coordinator that the old one had assured me it was okay before signing and she is going to run it by her manager. Knowing the venue, and all the issues I have had with them I am pretty sure they are going to call me back saying I still cannot use my original videographer. This was such an important part of my wedding that I wanted to enjoy and it is a shame that crap like this happens. Do I have any legal right to use my videographer?
I wish I could tell them just screw you and go somewhere else, but they are the best venue according to how I want my wedding to be/look.
