Wedding Cancellation

    I put them a deposit of €500 euro on a wedding venue December 2021 for the reception to take place in Oct 23. We changed our minds on the venue and are now getting married aboard. We contacted the hotel and we were told the deposit would be non refundable. Is there anyway we could get a % of the deposit back? We gave them 20 months notice of cancellation.

    In the contract you have with the hotel what does it say about the deposit?

    generally, unless stated otherwise (e.g. in a contract) the deposit is non returnable. so unless you can prove otherwise, your not entitled to any refund.

    Its important because now your into goodwill gesture territory. no harm in asking, & they do have time to try to let the room they reserved for you - to remediate their losses. I would be asking them for 50% back, as a starting position, and if there is no chance, perhaps a voucher for an overnight stay & dinner in the future? you will get nothing if you don't ask.

    Just dug out the contract and it says the deposit is non refundable. Ah well lesson learned!
