- Wedding: November 2011
So I had already booked a venue I liked it but wasn’t in love with it but the price was right but location was not desirable. Well, I of my employees works for a catering company parttime and ask me if I check into this particular venue. I told her I didn’t even know that they rented it out and it was probably over my budget. She got the info for me and I made and appt to see it and totally fell in love. my wedding is on a Sunday so he told me the Sunday price which was was cheaper than Friday and Saturday. The whole time I was there I kept telling my friend that I think it was under priced and I want to book it right away.
The guy told me that I had to do a application and then he had to do up a contract. I’ve been telling family members that I really wanted to sign the contract because I was worried about them starting to advertise it and I know a lot of people would want to rent it and I didn’t want them raising the price before the contract was signed.
I has been about a month ago and I haven’t heard from him so I emailed him today and he called me back. He said to me “Hey the luckiest girl in the world” so I ask him how was that. They just started renting the location out for reception so they are just in the beginning stages of this so everything isn’t all put together. Well when he gave me the price he gave me the Sunday event price which is way cheaper than a wedding reception price. Well, when it went to another department to be processed they told him that all receptions are the same price no matter what day it is and that Sunday event didn’t include wedding receptions and is something like from 2-6.
So he told them that he already told me the price and he also told me that I could have my ceremony and reception there for that price. He said he told them since it was his mistake that he was just going to go ahead and let me have it for that price and they will make the correction for others in the future. He just ask me to promise not to tell any one how much I rented it for. He also said there were stipulations for Sunday events but they were going to waive it since it was there mistake. He said every single thing he agreed to at our first initial meeting will be honored!!
I was super excited. There was no way I would’ve been able to afford it at the regular price. I guess this is the place God wants me to get married at!!!
Sorry for being so long just sooo excited!!
