Well, that’s exactly what happened, and I was SHOCKED to say the least.
It seems that a bride had given her final headcount to the wedding venue for 150 guests. When she informed the facility coordinator that the count had grown to 152 (as it often does), the coordinator told her to call 2 guests and tell them they could not attend. Are you kidding me?
I don’t write this post simply because of the hurt feelings it caused. The real issue here is who told the venue coordinator that this was the proper way to handle the situation? Do the owners of the wedding venue know that this is the kind of information being communicated?
There are probably hundreds of stories like this.
