Hi, girls. I didn't really know where to post this, so if this isn't the appropriate board, just let me know! Anyways, my fiance and I are finally ready to book our venue, after 6 months of looking around. We found an amazing deal from a venue that is brand new- has only had one wedding, and that was the wedding of the owner's daughter. The venue is not finished yet, they are working on laying down the asphalt for the parking lot that is currently just dirt, the trees have just been planted and are only about 5 feet tall, and there is still some construction going on in the kitchen and reception area. The venue is scheduled to open for weddings this June, so by the time my October 2014 rolls around, they will have been open for weddings for over a year. Half of me is concerned that the venue might not look like I imagine it when it is finally ready, but the other half of me feels like since my wedding is so far away my concerns are irrational because a parking lot can be laid in less than a year and a half. What does everyone think about this situation? Does anyone have any advice before we sign a contract? Any clause that we can possibly ask the owner to add to the contract to protect us if something like that should happen? Any advice is much appreciated! Thank you!
