How can they do that with a contract in place?

I’m with tksjewelry, there might be legal courses of action you could pursue. I know I would!

I agree with @AmuseMeMusically, if you can get some legal advice, I would. Did you pay a deposit already? You may be able to sue them for breach of contract.

Other than that, just start calling other places, and tell them your story. I bet that they would love to have your business, and will help you out.

I saw that you are planning a Halloween wedding, is that right?  What type of place are you looking for?

@ivorybunny: I would start calling around and being honest with the potential venues about what happened to you. I would hope that being in your situation, that they would be more than willing to help you out. I am sorry this has happened to you, I hope things work out. Keep us updated!

@ivorybunny: That’s tough. As long as you can get your money back. Is that in the contract?

I agree with other posters, just start blanket-calling all the venues in your area, and give them your story. Someone is going to be able to help you out.

You may also want to think about non-traditional venues, I have heard of brides having receptions in bowling alleys or, if you know someone with a nice yard you could have an outside tent reception as a backup plan. If you live close to a beach maybe have the ceremony there, just really try to broaden your ideas so you dont miss anything that might work.

I would start calling new venues for sure, just to be safe. BUT I think that this is rediculous. This could be something worth pursuing. Do you have a contract? If so what does it say about cancilation on their part, are going to get yourmoney back to put towards another venue? Im so sorry to hear this. I cant even imagine.

What about a local community hall, or firehouse?  

Don’t overlook restaurants either.
