If I were this bride, my parents would kill me!
I read the Wedding Bee blogs. Today there was a post regarding a venue a bride no longer needed.
...last minute wedding in San Francisco but can’t find a venue? ...has paid a $15,000 non-refundable deposit on the famous Yank Sing Restaurant for the evening of 9/13/08 from 4-11pm and has planned to marry elsewhere. Yank Sing houses 300 guests and her event is fully-transferrable. She’s looking to recover $10,000 from her deposit, which means you can book the venue for a $5,000 discount. She’s also booked a photographer, florist, videographer, deejay and lighting package which she is willing to transfer to you if you’re interested, and looking to recover 50-75% of her costs on them. Check out her listing in the Weddingbee classifieds for more information.
It's a beautiful place, but wow - that's a lot of money! I'm sure the other vendors are equally pricey.
I wonder if she paid for the deposit, or her parents (or his) did? My parents would kill me if they put that much down for a venue, plus the other vendors, and then changed my mind. I'm hoping there's a better reason than just changing one's mind.
In all reality, though, my parents would never have been ok with a place that has a $15,000 non-refundable deposit. I wonder how much the reception was going to cost in all?
