Wedding nightmare update

If this has been posted already, whoopsie! I think the bride stopped posting after the Knot refused to remove this hall from their listings.

Here's the original post (clicky).

Here's more background (clicky) and then the update (clicky).

    That's amazing! I'm impressed that Sheraton would do that.

    Good for her for going to the media.  Hopefully another venue will try to help them out.  There was a place here in Houston that did the same thing to like 30 or 40 brides a few years back and Rachael Ray came to town and threw them all a huge group wedding at our baseball park.  I feel so bad for them!

    Edit: I didn't click the update link either! That's great that the Sheraton is doing all of that for them.

    I remember reading her story.  It's nice to know that there are people willing to help out (the Sheraton) and hopefully they will garner some well-deserved positive media attention for helping out this distraught bride.

    I don't see what the Sheraton is doing to help? I read the article and didn't see them mentioned. Did I miss something? I remember reading the original post.

    ETA: nevemind, I missed the update link

    Wow, good for her!  That's also a really smart business move on the part of the Sheraton: eat the $7K in exchange for loads of free press for being the hero.
    This is a neglected planning bio.
    This is a belated married bio, with no reviews yet because I'm lazy.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284

    I'm glad that worked out for her.  I hope the other misplaced brides are as lucky, or at least find suitable arrangements, on such short notice.

    So glad to hear a happy ending to that story.  I hope the other displaced couples are able to get replacement venues at low or no cost as well.  It's great that other venues in the community are sympathetic and willing to help out.

    Yeah good for her.  I can't even imagine what they went through.  I'm glad to hear that it worked out for her in the end.

    The owners of the place that shut down sound like crooks; they charged the one girl's card five days before they closed the doors, and before her contract stipulated, wtf.
