Did you sign a contract?  Did you put the date of the wedding in the memo section of the check?  If you wedding is this August, Id be super worried that you werent getting regular contact from the reception venue…call his boss or ask for the catering manager.

Getting something in writing is a good idea, even if they have cashed your check and are obligated to you financially. Is there any way you can go down there and talk to the manager? It might be worth it at this point. Also, its a good idea to let them know that this type of service is not acceptable.

I would say go down there and ask to speak with whom ever is in charge, also if you paid with check make sure you have the cancelled check most banks you can print it off online. Good Luck.

You need to either call and speak to someone over the phone or go down to the venue.  In the future, PLEASE do not have give a deposit without having a contract first!  Any vendor who does this is not doing it properly – they can take your money and never provide service because there was no contract.  Get a contract first, then send the contract and deposit at the same time or send the contract then the deposit.

its not too late to get something in writing.

draft up your points you want to be assured are covered and try to get them to put it in a contract, even if they say its unnecessary – just say "it will make me feel better".

I think you should have your mother make a visit.  For some reason you just can’t ignore a person standing in front of you like you can a phone call or e-mail.  Give her a draft of a contract or at least what you want them to sign that they are agreeing to in writing.  Also, threatening to call the BBB usually gets them hopping faster, as does calling their boss (last resort) if you can figure out who THEY report to (some franchise headquarters perhaps?)  DO NOT feel like you are being a burdensome bride, you are a CUSTOMER and they owe you SERVICE!
