Groom dies two weeks before wedding - Venue will not refund the money SIAP

I understand them refusing to give the money back. There was a signed contract, and it was booked many months out, the venue will lose money from refunding the money and not be able to book it within two weeks (weekend night).

But, it’s hurting them in the long run. The are getting lit up on social media, etc, probably will cost them more in the long run.

The owner of the venue murdered the husband for the insurance money.

Heck no. They are loosing out on another person renting the place. I would tell family that if it gets booked, they can have a refund.

Well, he killed himself.

Sorry, view it different than some tragic death.

This, but it’s very hard for a party venue to book something less than two weeks out.

The couple signed a paper that says the money is not refundable.

The venue put that time and date down and didn’t plan for anyone else

So, by refunding money, the venue is losing money

A contract is a contract, but if I was the owner I’d refund the money to any family in the case of the death of the bride or groom. That’s just good business common sense and being a decent human being.

Best advice I think I’ve ever given to my son:

“The world is full of a-holes. It doesn’t mean that you have to be one.”

Lol, no. They can and will fill that slot.

They are being greedy and trying to cash an extra $30k and it will cost them in the long run

Also by not refunding money, the venue is losing money. No win situation. They should be compassionate.

maybe, maybe not

Most of the time the persons "lighting up" social media are not ever going to be customers of the business.

You see it all the time - some restaurant in Baton Rouge does something "social media" doesn't like and the business capitulates - even though an examination of the complaints would show that the complaints were not coming from the service area of the business.

They aren’t providing food so yes, they should offer something

Friends sister had a cancelled wedding right before it was supposed to happen
Since they couldn’t get a refund they said they wanted all the food they were going to provide, they gave it to them, it was a ton of food, we ate good off of it for a week

The venue may end up losing much more from the bad PR over this.
