This is my 1st ever post on this site. Normally I just read other posts and occasionally comment but I've just been hit with news that I just needed to vent about. See, my fiance and I are planning to get married on Sept. 22 of this year and we found the perfect reception venue (it's right across the street from the church, it has a beautiful space, great vendor connections, and Hispanic-managed which we appreciate because my side of the family is Hispanic). In Dec., we paid the deposit and reserved the date and all was good until we had a little incident with the pastor who is officiating. We thought we might have to change the date so I called the reception venue to discover what I needed to do IF I wanted to do so. The guy asked me if I wanted to change the date and I distinctly remember telling him not to change the date, I just wanted to find out what I needed to do IF I wanted to do it. Today, the reception venue guy calls to tell me my date has been changed to Oct. 13th! He tells me he gave away my date because I told him to. I didn't even sign any paperwork to authorize him to do that which he said I would have to do when I called a few weeks ago. He was very rude and when my fiance tried talking to him, he was just short and dismissive. Are reception venues allowed to just give away reservations without notice?? I'm not sure whether we should go in-person to speak our minds or should we just change the date to another day in Sept. (which he said is possible)? I am too livid right now to think logically. Ladies, I need advice and reassurance please.
