@psudopoddy: I can understand why that would upset you.

Would you be willing to get married in Queens, Brooklyn, or NJ looking back into the city?

That may give you more options for locations and dates without having to wait a full year.

you could always put your name on a wait list there and if they have a cancelation they would call you, this way theres still an option for a different date

Could you move the date to early 2012 or be put on a ‘cancellations’ call list?  You could also ask this venue for additional recommendations.  Many times venues that can’t meet your date requirements will recommend good venues that provide similar services.  We were really fortunate with our wedding that one of our vendors recommended this.  We also had another available due to a canceled event.

What’s the venue you love…maybe we can suggest something similar?

Ugh I feel ya. You don’t sound like a brat, you just sound disappointed for you but happy for her. My sister and Maid/Matron of Honor got pregnant too and was huge at my wedding lol. I had to choose a different bridesmaid dress and stuff then our original pick, but I got over it quick and can’t wait for my nephew to hurry up and get here already.

You are totally not!!  You are having a completely understandable reaction, and dealing with it well by venting on the Bee and not to your sister. 🙂  Good luck – I am sure you will be happy with the wedding you end up with!

I imagine Central Park Boathouse is around the same price and its beautiful.  But you are right.  That venue is somewhat incomparable.  I’m sorry hun.  Keep your eyes on the NYC board for other good places like the Frick etc.
