Minneapolis, MN asked in Contracts for Minnesota

Q: How can I get out of a wedding venue contract that was signed?

We signed our venue contract on Feb 15, 2019.Our wedding is Aug 3rd 2019.After putting down a deposit and paying our first payment, we had our food tasting.Very dissapointing to say the least.We looked at our contract and it states that cancellation need to 180 days outside of wedding.We never had 180 days to begin with due to our wedding being in Aug.The venue is 7600 and our food minimum is 10,000.Would we still be responsible for the complete amount if we decided to cancel our contract?I'm fine with them keeping the 3500 that has already been paid, I just don't want to be sued for the remaining balance if we cancel.

A: You should meet with a lawyer to go over the contract in full and discuss your options moving forward. Sometimes it is as simple as your representative speaking with the venue to settle the matter.
