If you change the venue which is completely up to you and your SO, you must pay your parents back the $2500 dollars. Do what makes you and your SO happy, its your wedding, but your parents will have to be paided back.

@Jade1424:  I think you need to cry for an evening and then get over it.  That’s a huge sum of money to throw away.  Even if you and your fiance paid the $2500, that’s the cost of a gown or a serious upgrade for your honeymoon.  This isn’t a case like dress regret where you can resell and get part of your money back.  The money is gone.

I know this isn’t what you want to hear, but I think you need to mourn for a day and then let it go and start looking at the possibilities the venue has to offer.  If it had been just your parents or in-laws that preferred it, it would have been one thing, but if your fiance is on board too, I think the only choice at this point really is to find a way to make it work for you.

Perhaps you could do a vintage nautical that brought some of the warmth you’d envisioned.  Or perhaps with your linens and color scheme you could bring a more informal air to the place.  I sympathize and am sorry you’re in this predicament, but think that in time you may be able to see the venue in a more positive light once you’ve mourned and let the other one go.

If your venue is truly so nice and so beautiful that everyone but you — including your Fiance — is convinced that it is the best option, and  you would forfeit $2,500 if you changed your venue, I honestly would keep your venue.  There certainly could be other forms of “regret” you could end up experiencing as you move forward in this process, and you likely will not be able to make some of those changes either.  As long as what you have is really nice, and you’ve already put down a deposit, I wouldn’t change it.
