slomotion :  She hand wrote in contract changes on your original contract and then tried to tell you that was your contract? Honestly it sounds like they want you to bail! Obviously since they are inventing new charges ($1000 wtf?) they have upped their business expenses and prices and they feel your event now isn’t worth their time. Completely shady and bad business but it does happen. I wouldn’t even let them keep the $200 but it maybe worth it since legal proceedings will probably cost more in money, time and emotion. 

I am glad that another local business could accommodate you and bonus points for money saving! 

And high fives to 

creativeplannertobee :  for going above and beyond for a stranger.

Wow, Bee, wow.  I don’t think I’ve ever heard such a crappy story on WB when dealing with a venue.  My heart bleeds for you, but I KNOW you’ll find better (this new bar place sounds awesome, with such a supportive staff)!  

I hope you have a fabulous wedding and it’s a big fat finger to that lady!

slomotion : I was hoping you were near my area because I know a couple of venue owners (lol not even same country) but sounds like you may have an even better new place – fingers crossed for you-

and kudos to creativeplannerbee for her creative planning ๐Ÿ™‚

I’ll echo what other Bees have said. Go to the media, this woman is not only morally and ethically wrong, what she did (doctoring the contract) is likely illegal. Contact the newspaper or news station and tell them about it, they could run it as a human interest story/ shady business practices & warn others. And you can also praise the great new venue owner who’s being so accommodating

slomotion :  I’m so glad it worked out for you guys! Venue issues should be the least of your worries a month before the wedding. The new place looks awesome though, congrats!

I’ve been following this thread but haven’t commented until now. I just wanted to let you know I’m so happy that everything worked out, and I’m so impressed with how you handled everything. I’d like to think that I’d be as calm and collected as you were, but I think in reality I’d be calling for a Xanax prescription and a gallon of wine. Your new venue looks phenomenal and I can’t wait to see your pics and hear your recap! Best wishes to you and your Fiance. <3
