Hi all! We are in final negotiations with our venue/caterer and unfortunately one of us has a severe nut allergy. Although the venue has provided us a nut free menu and assured that they would take reasonable steps to prevent contamination, they at the same time are insisting on a very broad liability waiver that would basically allow them to not be sued even if they don't take the care that they promise. Has anyone else in a similar situation had success in finding language that made them and you feel comfortable while avoiding trigger words like "negligence?" This is an Abigail Kirsch venue so insight on them would be particularly helpful, but I would welcome any suggestions at this point as this is the one issue holding up resolution of our contract, and we just want to feel safe on our special day.
Thanks so much!!!!
