AHR/Stag and doe venue bankrupt!!
Posted 28 December 2009 - 10:21 PM
I got a call yesterday morning from our stag and doe/AHR venue saying that they have gone bankrput and have closed!!!
I feel like you only hear about stuff like this happening in movies, but now we are scrambling to find another venue asap because our stag and doe is in less than two months. It is so frusterating because we have tickets printed with that date and location, and now we're gonna have to change them (and they are really cute) and for the ones we have already sold we have to call everyone and let them know the new info.
On top of that, we lost our $1200 deposit. I understand that the recession has hit everyone hard, and I can't really be mad at anyone, but it's really exausting to think of doing all the legwork all over again to find a new venue(s). Plus being out all that money is a huge piss off.
Looking on the bright side though, this has just made us realize even more that we are doing the right thing by getting married down south...soo much less of a headache!!

like you say try and think positive you have been spanked but its nothing that cant be sorted out.regarding your stag/doe invites can you not just get some stickers with the new venue info on and stick them over the other info?

I stopped feeling sorry for myself and spent the day on the phone talking to new venues and we were able to find a new location for the stag and doe (great idea for the stickers shell!! I talked to my aunt who works for a printing company and she will do them all for free :-). So far our family and friends have been so supportive and have offered to help make food/games etc as our old location provided everything.
And we have a few appointments to check out AHR venues, but we have some time for that because we aren't doing that until Sept. What a difference a day makes!!

I'd be going mad too, but there is always a silver lining.

Hope everything turns out and you manage to find an even better place to hold your Stag n Doe and AHR!
