Do they have any way to enforce the contract? I would seek legal counsel.

I’m sorry you had to postpone your wedding. All best to you and your family.

So you signed a contract?  Did it say anything about the cancellation policy in it?  If it said you’ll be on the hook for the $3,500, I think they have the right to come after it, even though it’s a rough situation.  Did you ask them about postponing it a year rather than cancelling?

I don’t have any advice but I’m sending good thoughts your way.

If you are only postponing, could you ask them to hold a future date for you?

Can you see if the will let you keep the contract but at a later date? That way you aren’t breaking your end of the deal and you still have a caterer when the time comes?

@stephanieanette:  maybe you can tell them that you’ll pay the 3.500 as a deposit for next years wedding. i think they would agree to that, specially because they’ll eventually get more money out of it, it’s a good bussiness deal. Did you sign anything that said that you would pay that money if you cancelled??

@stephanieanette:  i understand you don’t want to give your business to them, but if it’s between having to pay an additional $3500 for a service you won’t have vs. postponing and having them cater, which would you rather do?

I’m so sorry you’re dealing with this.

I would ask if you can get out of the deposit or have it refunded if they end up booking the same date for another event.  Sometimes vendors will give you your money back if they are still able to book the date.  

Also, I agree with Ms. Meowerson – even though the person (or people) you spoke to there was rude, is it worth losing $3500 over?  They may let you postpone and not lose that money.

Just out of curiosity, what was your original wedding date?  If it was several months in the future, the company can’t be out much money and shouldn’t get 3500.  If it was within the next 1-3 months, I could understand them wanting some compensation.

I am so very sorry.  I just cancelled my wedding yesterday.  It was suppoosed to be in  4 months and my dad has 3-5 months to live. 

 

We paid for it all ourselves, and now with freed up funds we can fly home to see my dad each month.

Luckily, and thankfully, we got our money back.  We had a 120 day deadline.  I wish you luck.
