So last Wednesday, we found out that we couldn't get a sound permit after 8pm at our venue. When our wedding is scheduled till 10pm. We talked to a police officer, and he said if they get a call after 8pm about too much noise, we would get a $1,000 and a court date.
We talked to our vendors, and they are going to give us our money back. They didn't even know about the 8pm cut off.
So my FI and I spent that whole day searching for a venue with an opening and within our budget.
Luckily, we found one! We signed a contract today. This new venue is soooo much better than the one we had! Now I know why everyone used all inclusive venues!
To top it off, we get a hotel room for the night of free, with champagne and chocolate covered strawberries!
Everything happens for a reason.
On the down side, one of my BM (which happens to be a close cousin of mine) is treatening to not come to the wedding because she can't bring a plus one. We decided from the start that we are not doing plus ones unless you are married or engaged. We have already told 10 different people no. We are trying to be fair to everyone. Not to mention we are only having close family and friends (under 60 people).
Any advice or comments on how to handle this situation?
