whoa! i’m so sorry this has happened. 

PS: maybe this is a good example of why we should all consider wedding insurance!

Wow! Why did they have that much money from you? I’ve only paid like $4,000 to my reception as a deposit (out of what will probably be around $50K total) and I think the rest isn’t due until like a month or even a couple weeks before!

oh my gosh that is terrible! Have you gotten a lawyer to review your contract? They may be able to find a medical loop hole. You’d be surprised how many contracts have big loop holes!

Hope you are feeling better and everything works out!!!

I would contact Asa Ararons (the former consumer reporter for WNBC) and share your story.  Perhaps some media pressure will help?

I’m guessing your emergency happened after you paid in full, otherwise $50k is quite a bit of money (wow, that was probably going to be quite the affair).

If the date hasn’t passed, have you tried to get someone to fill it?  If it has past, you are right that it’s just a date and if another party had an affair that day, then it’s unfair it doesn’t return your money.  At the most, the venue would be entitled to the difference for any money lost and you should have been given the balance as a refund.

I would go through all the channels you can to try and get your money back.  Hope you succeed.
