Hi all, I am new here so I hope you can all help me and I can, in turn, help others! Here is my question:
I signed a contract with my hotel venue that included using their ballroom and premium open bar beverage package (using an outside caterer). After signing the contract, she gave me a list of their “premium liquors”, only to find out they were not the standard premium brands that other venues offered (more like middle range brands). After a lot of emails and negotiating, I got them to give me the brands I wanted (true, premium brands). I thanked the sales manager and asked her to please draft up a new contract which included these brands. She said that was not necessary, that she would honor what she had written in the emails and that the emails were proof of our written agreement.
My question now is, Should I push to have her include it in the contract? In the first contract, there was no mention of the brands of alcohol, just the phrase “Premium Open Bar” so I don’t think they are inclined to put the brands in the contract anyway. It’s just that I’ve heard so many stories of venues not holding up their end of the deal because something wasn’t written in the contract and I’ve always been told by other friends to get everything they promised me in writing.
Any advice? Thanks everyone!
