We found our dream venue!
Great news right!?
Well i guess, Im starting to doubt it since the contact we had with the venue seems to be ignoring my emails and phone calls.
We have a good year before the actuall wedding but i am urdging to get an actual set date from the guy. The first time we emailed he responded within a day so i know he checks it on a normal basis. We went and viewed the venue and loved it and now we are ready to sign on the dotted line and set the date! But i cant get a hold of the guy.
I dont want to be a crazy bridezilla however it would be nice to have a set date and be able to answer everyones nagging questions about when the big day is. Specially since 90% of our wedding party will be traveling a minumum of 5-8 hours to the wedding so id like to get Save the dates out soon!
Is it crazy for me to keep calling or do i sit around and hope that by not nagging the guy he will call me back.
My biggest concern is that the dont want us there, we have already been “kicked” out of one venue because we are expecting too wild of a crowd there. however im not going to lie to these venue people by telling them i will have 100% civilized people there cause thats a blatent lie.
My family is a little cooky, so are my friends as well as his family and friends. Everyone likes to drink and we want everyone to have a good time. Am i scaring people away by telling them this or just sticking to the truth so that the wedding people understand what they are getting themselves into.

I just wouldn’t mention it, there is no need to. However they shouldn’t not book you because of that reason. Do they serve the alcohol? You think they’d look at it as an ability to make money off drink sales.
How long has it been? If its been a few days I think it is perfectly acceptable to follow up and confirm they’ve received your emaill or voice message.

I emailed him 2 weeks ago, called and left one message 3 days ago. I dont want to keep pushing however i am very focused on getting a venue set!

@melissa.sokolinski: what do you mean by a “wild crowd” and how would they know that? I don’t think venues should be able to kick you out for that…maybe i’m too much of a newbie as well. Is there someone else at the venue that you can contact? He might be on vacation…wouldn’t want you getting upset over that and just overreacting. Maybe call the main number and check on the situation first.

The only number i have is the main number the other day i called they said he was dealing with a situation on site but that he would be back in a half hour. I thought of that too. When i say wild crowd i mean that we have a lot of drinkers. I wouldnt be surprised if people got sick and were stubling around after the wedding ( that just how our families are) Which is why we liked the idea of having the resort and reception be all in one.
I am ready to set a date so that we can start the rest of the planning but i cant help but think this guy is never going to get back to me. I havent gone as far as to ask for someone else but i will give him another week or so before i start loosing my mind!
