    [QUOTE]Lets just say the reason we lost so much was because my Future MIL decided to keep sending $$$ when she could. We would only be out half as much as we are now if she hadn't done so. Personally I am out about $4500 but she is out way more. The ACC is a dream location and I feel now my wedding will be just as or even better than the GCC could have been. I didn't settle with the 1st place I saw just to get it over with, but yes I will admit I am rushing into things and probabley not getting what I can out of my vendors. I had to find a new JP on top of all this too, so now thats more $$ but in the end its going to be a wonderful day.

    Oh my God, that's a lot of money.  I'm so sorry about that Soxgirl!!  It's so nice that you're looking at the bright side of things, though. 

    How did you handle the date/location change with your guests?  Did you call them all?  Are they all able to still come?

    Fram, I had to put a 50% deposit down for my venue ($2400) and several payments throughout the year for the caterer ($1000 and then 3 $1500 payments).  The balance was due 10 days beforehand when my final numbers were in.

    I always joked before that all i wanted to do was just send an Evite as my wedding invitation instead of actual invites to save $$$ (yes i sent out actual invites and they weren't that much) so thats what I did this time...sent an evite to the friends i had e-mail addresses for which was almost everyone on my side and our friends. I've actually gotten a great reponse to it so far today with 24 yes and i even sent it to those that said no before. My vendors that I had in the package are still working with me and are great. My only problem was finding a new JP and the ACC reccomended someone and they were available...double what I was paying the other person but still reasonable ($200 instead of $100) I can always cancel that and see about having someone do it for the day.

    For my first daughter's wedding, we had to put a deposit of $1,500 down.. then the final payment 2weeks before. For 2nd daughter's wedding, we had to put $2,000 down.. then $5,000 at the 9 month mark, another $5,000 at the 6 month mark, with the balance due 2 weeks before.  Now onto daughter # 3. $1,500 down, $10,000 6 months before  balance  2 weeks before.  So, if God forbid, something had happened 1 week to 10 days before any of the weddings... we would have been out a HUGE chunk of change!
