What a whirlwind. I’m glad you updated us with good news otherwise I would have been totally stressing out myself. We didn’t purchase wedding insurance (just ran out of time) but I supposed these are exactly the kind of instances where it comes in handy. Best of luck!

So very glad you two have been so proactive about this!  Sounds like it’s going to go well.  So very very sorry this happened.   Definitely pursue getting the deposit back even it it means legal matters.

I understand the economy is tough, but did he file bankruptcy? 

I’d definitely consult w/an attorney on this one..but first give Mr. Benson a chance to right his wrong by giving thr $$ back. 

I am in healthcare and I understand also that people’s health can turn on a dime, but if he took your money in good faith, and suddenly has had some medical compllications, then he should give it back in the same good faith as a professional.

Do you have a receipt from him for the deposit?  If yes, then great b/c he will be liable for services not rendered.  A deposit for nothing will not sit well with the courts.

emilyjen –so glad to hear you have found some new vendors! if you need a bar person, I’ve got a great person. He can help with estimating and purchasing the alcohol (if you’re doing it yourself) and can coordinate hiring a couple of other bartenders, etc. PM me and i’ll get you the number. thanks for the shout and good luck!

emilyjen – I’m so glad things seem to be coming together. I’m not sure if you’re still looking for a cake, but I highly recommend The Cakery located at Jamie’s on Main in Stowe. Both Jamie and Michelle are awesome people who make the most delcious things… http://thecakeryvt.com/. I’m from Stowe too so love to help out in any way I can.
