Venue Called - Where's The Wedding Cake? HUH? - Page 8

The venue was going to offer her a refund for the cake since the money in the account was never used for a cake, which is the obvious and logical solution. I understand there being a snag with her daughter's wedding, but requesting the venue provide her with a 100% refund for the entire wedding and reception is going a bit too far and absurd.

This may sound crazy, but it makes me wonder if this woman knew what she was doing, and the debacle with the cake was a set up to get her money refunded. It always stood out to me that she understood the process with the other vendors but not the cake. It just didn't make sense as all outside vendors were handled in the same manner. It may be far fetched, but I know I would not be requesting a full refund for the wedding expenses. And I certainly wouldn't allow an issue with the cake to overshadow everything else.



You may be onto something. I'd also have second thoughts about working with that venue again unless they stepped up and admitted responsibility for the error.

A truly great read! I'm with the OP, I would be very suspicious about the MOB's motive. As a recent MOB myself with an "all inclusive" package with a venue-my daughter and I still had countless meetings with each vendor; ie-DJ needed songs, names, etc...Florist confirmed the final counts for corsages and bouquets-the venue confirmed each of these meetings with me-and required a final head count for the food once the RSVP's were in, my Mother actually made the cake, but the venue did contact me to make sure of the table and placement for it-I wouldn't trust the MOB as far as I could throw her!
