@Zellybelly:  Does the information you have in your signed contract include what you’d be paying? I would think if that is signed with the date you’d be having your wedding and costs, etc, they’d have to honor that.  If not, tell them you’ll be contacting Better Business Bureau to lodge a complaint.  If you paid deposit via credit card, you could try to get $ refunded due to them breaching your contract.  Good luck!!

@Zellybelly:  so you paid a deposit but didnt sign a contract with the specifics?

i would forward the original email and ask what changed? what are the chances of you finding another venue if this one wont lower the new higher prices? you should at least be able to get the deposit back

dont suppose you have any friends in the legal profession who can give you a bit of advice?

This is shady. I’d avoid doing business with them at all if possible.

@Zellybelly:  this is not good business practice especially for the “new manager”.  i would seriously find a way to get your deposit back.  i wouldn’t feel comfortable with the new management looking after my wedding.  they seem like a flakes.

good luck and keep us updated.

the deposit is for booking the venue so if you paid them a deposit, then they know damn well it meant they were reserving the venue for you for the day of your wedding. they are definitely shady and they have to give you your deposit back since, clearly, they’re not going to honor the contract. you can sue them for it.

@calibee79:  +1, If you paid them a deposit they can say whatever they want, but they wouldn’t need a deposit for an inquiry. Also if they said they thought it was an inquiry that means they remember you! Try to get back any money you paid and find somewhere else, because I would not want to have my wedding there.

If it has the prices listed and her signature..then they HAVE to honor it.

I wouldn’t want them to honor it; I’d demand my money back, and stick to it until you get it.

That’s not shady, it’s criminal.

Get your money back, find another venue. Ask your friends for venue help. Hell, as my lovely wife, she might be able to find something for you; she has mad internet skills.

What they did is definitely not okay.  This situation is why there are contracts.  If you and the manager both signed this e-mail as you stated, then that is your contract which can hold up in a court of law.  I would sue them if they refused to give back the deposit.  Find another venue.
