OHHHH! That sucks! I wonder what other vendors are getting screwed and don't even know it!
That was my point earlier, the vendor is the only one you can know for sure they are dealing with, find out from them if she cancelled their checks too. Also, if they dont know yet, then when they find out about your situation, then they might be able to check it out, and then maybe not hold the reception at all!! backfire city, she would not know what to do, and i wish you could be there to see her face, it would be priceless.
