The Gallery Inn changed my contract-now out of price range


Recommended Posts

As some of you may remember, I had a hard time securing The Gallery Inn. Well last week, our contact person vanished (this was our second contact by the way). Come to find out she is no longer with the company. She had sent out a contract in February that stated the price per person and what it included. Now, the owner has sent a different contract that has an additional $1400 charge for cocktails. FI and I pointed out that the cocktails were already included in the previous quoted price. The previous contract also stipulated decorations were included in the price but not on the new one. The problem is, we are already over budget and this new fee will make it too cost prohibitive to have the wedding at The Gallery Inn. FI tried talking to the owner today and she would not budge. I'm afraid that with one month to go, I have to find a new location for my wedding and reception. We have had alot of communication issues and also our musicians keep changing on us! I am ready to cry...

Um, this sounds really fishy to me. I think you need to get on the phone with them and make it really clear that with your wedding a month away, they can't make any changes to your contract. The fact that the person who sent you the contract originally is no longer with them, is not your issue. She was there at the time and that is what you signed. I had similar issues with the Hilton and they honored everything.

 

Worse case, put all charges on your credit card and then fight the charges so they don't get the money. If they're trying to screw with you, screw them.

 

Do you want me to call them for you?

Yeah don't sign the new contract - if the old contract is signed by both of you its legally binding. You have not accepted the new contract so i'd tell them basically to feck off that is what the contract says and if they want to get shitty about it you'll make sure they don't get any more business.

 

Stay really firm and make sure they know you aren't messing about. If you really do feel that you want to move tho - find somewhere but don't tell them you are doing it just in case they back down.

 

I can't see how it makes financial sense to cancel a massive booking for $1400 they are going to lose a lot more than that if you shift - not to mention the damage you could do to them on this site.

 

Stick to your guns, tell them you have taken legal advice lol

Oh jesus that is horrible - i can't believe it is coming from the owner.

 

ok - first of all DO NOT sign that new contract. i agree with the girls - tell them you have legal advice and that you consider the 1st contract legally binding. you have to stand firm and let her know that if she doesn't honor the contract you will sue her for breach

 

Glenda - where r u?

Not sure how much the law in the US differs to the UK - but that is a serious breach unless it has subject to change on it over here.

 

DO NOT SIGN IT - fight your corner because you are in the right and over here a court would whip their ass - 90% of the time they go on the side of the consumer
