They have over a month to get a new stove/oven. Don’t they have other events to worry about? This is plenty of time to get it replaced. My venue had a walk-in cooler break on them and they had it replaced in one week. Would never have effected me, it just delayed some coomunication about our upcoming event, but they were all over it because they had events booked each weekend. They contracted with you and they need to do whatever it takes to uphold their obligations.

Ooooh i was thinking of sausage wrapped in a pancake. Those were always pigs in a blanket to me. Here I was thinking you were having breakfast food =]

Ahh.  I thought you seemed too calm about this whole thing.  Congrats on coming up with a great solution.  I love my little convection oven.  Fiance doesn’t let me use the big oven when the AC has to be used . . . so I take my little oven and use it on the patio.

I would think that one of those large roaster type pans that you plug in (with a rack at the bottom to keep the air moving) would keep piggies warm so that you won’t have to give up one of your guests for the oven during the actual reception… 

Crisis handled very well, btw!

yum yum yum for the pigs in a blanket! Great job on overcoming what could have been a travesty! And yes, a convection oven will come in handy – I assure you!

Good call on the convection oven! I would love one of those. If you decide to do a buffet server/ warming dish thing instead – Costco has one online for $50 that is really nice. It has three seperate “bowls” or you can take that insert out and have a flat warming tray. I’m ordering one for the hoildays.

Sounds like you scored big time with your reception venue! Nice friend!

Perhaps wedding disasters happen because they make some of the best stories to tell after the fact.  

Kudos to you for your flexible and creative planning!

Hurray for handling disaster.  I think it wouldn’t be called wedding if there wasn’t some significant crazy issue!
