Home > Reception > Venue Closes
There are a number of reasons why a venue will no longer be able to hold your wedding...
The first thing to do if you find when your wedding venue closes is don't panic.
I know that sounds much easier said than done but you will be ok ...
... follow my checklist to get yourself back on track with your wedding plans.

1. Contact the venue yourself and find out if they have any plans in place for an alternative venue or getting your money back.
When you call the venue ask to speak to the manager as they will have a better idea of what is going on.
2. If you have Wedding Insurance then you will be ok, find your documents and give them a call.
Weddings can cost as much as a new car and as your reception is costing you probably half of your budget it is a really good idea to take out insurance... because you never know!
3. Hopefully you will have paid the venue in part or full with a credit card as the Fair Trade Credit Billing Act means you can file a dispute if the venue has not provided the services you have paid for. The only downside is there is a 60 day cut off window for claims but if you paid a recent installment by credit card the chances are you will get some of your money back.
I know it will feel that it's just you that this has happened to but there will be a number of other couples also in the same boat, so competition may be a bit fierce for an alternative place.
The most important factor is to stay positive, you will be ok, you have each other and your new venue will be just as lovely if not more so than the original.
Let me know how you get on!
