PUT EVERYTHING IN WRITING
A little warning for my fellow brides.
There is one thing that really annoys me about our venue. And that is that they keep going back on things that we agreed upon when we met up with them in person.
All I can advise other brides is to put everything in writing with their venue and suppliers in general. Don't be as trusting as I was.
They already backtracked on the price they originally quoted us for favours, a keg of beer, bread and butter during the speeches.
Now the newest chapter...
They offer a 150£ package for a Sweet Table. And a 300£ package for a Polaroid camera guestbook. Both aren't to are taste (And way too expensive). So we agreed with thr coordinator at our last meeting in the castle that we could bring our own stuff. I went ahead and bought everything.
This weekend I sent them an email just to check the details of the layout. And the coordinator replies that this was never agreed and that normally you need to pay for the package.
Greedy b******. It's not like we aren't spending a lot of money already. We have booked a full weekend. So are paying for 12 rooms for two nights. We are paying for food and drink the evening before. We bought their cocktail package. Etc.
I sent quite a stern email back. And all of this will definitely go in my review on Facebook.
I'm just kicking myself for not ensuring everything was in writing to start off with. You just cannot trust anyone.
