sheneedstherapy:  I would find a new venue now. You do not want to be dealing with this leading up to your event. Once you get closer invites will be printed, etc. making it a lot more difficult to switch things up, plus obviously other venue’s dates will be getting booked. Sorry you’re going through this. 

Also, sorry but coordinator is one word…that was bugging me!

YOu must run run far. We had a similar experance. With a venue that was just not very cooperative. So we ditched out $900 depoist for a place that is nicer and better. So if there is no finacial problems. Find a new place. I did and it is 5 months to my wedding. Specially since you guys are so flesable I would never have it on a firday. Maybe you can find a place to have it on a Saturday like you wanted.

That venue doesn’t sound worth the hassle. I’d get the deposit back and reprint invites.

I can see both sides to be honest. They had full right and reason to give away the original date because you had not paid a deposit. As for not getting back to you, you are really early in menu and floor layout. We discussed it with out venue a month from the wedding, although we booked a year in advance. 

If your gut is telling to to cencel then listen to your gut.

Run run run.  Their lack of communication would be a major drama for me.

If you have another venue option with your preferred date, I would leave this place. It will just become a source of stress for you, and there will be plenty of that without these fools.
