- Wedding: June 2013
I was literally in shock. SHOCK! Our venue was featured on a show called “Hotel Impossible” on the Travel Channel. From the looks of everything and the looks of our wedding coordinator/hotel owner the show was taped a month or so after we booked. She’s apparently preggo.
What came out in the show is that the owners are in way over their heads. They don’t know how to run a hotel. They are going at a 0% occupancy rate many nights. They aren’t making any money and have at most 6 months at this rate before they’d be bankrupt. They said they stay afloat because of weddings.
Ours is booked out for 14 months from now.
So we watch this and freak out right?!!! And then we go and look at our contract and there’s all this and that about what happens if we cancel but nothing about if they lost the inn. It says something about ACTS OF GOD but that section is really unclear. So we goofed. We didn’t get something in writing.
We called last night after the show and left a message. I called again to find out when I could speak to the planner/owner and she’s out at appts this morning. We have 25k+ invested in this wedding. Alone we have over 10k tied up in the venue.
I’m angry, confused, sad, feel like an idiot. We put so much on this and thought we found a really great place.
