do you have a lawyer friend to ask them?

Have you send invites?

I would tell them that this is unaccetable and you were contracted to use the room you wanted and expec to be there. You are willing however to move your wedding to (pick a several dates). If you have send the invites I would tell them they are responsible for the cost of the new notice.

@kerbear051:  If that room is explicitly stated in your contract, they are making a breach of contract and can subsequently be taken to court. DEMAND the room you want.

Omg that is like a nightmare!!!

 

Tell them to give you your money back and go somewhere else!

Or your small venue room should be FREE!

I would, first, call back to nicely remind them that your contract says that room. And if they can no abide by their contract you will have to have your lawyer contact them. See what they say to that.

To be honest–

I am a business owner and often here “I will have my lawyer contact you”

and it never happens.  People who are in business long enough know everyone uses that clause and it rarely happens–which is what they will probably be thinking.

 

I would ask for a free room before you throw the lawyer clause in there!

When people say that to me, i immediately laugh and never accomidate them.

accomidation is what you want!!!

If you are willing to actually go through with your lawyer contacting them then I would absolutely bring that up- but as a last resort. I would try to negotiate yourself before going to that measure. Since your contract states the exact room then they have some major bending over backwards to do to accomadate YOU, not the other way around.

If you stick with your original venue, you should be able to get a significant discount, or something thrown in. A co-worker’s daughter (a lawyer, ironically), had her wedding location within the hotel moved (some snafu with the hotel). She was able to get an extra hour for free, and a private bar for cocktail hour.
