Venus on a Half Shell

I'm looking to see if anyone who has had a wedding at Venus on a Half Shell has found it difficult to get confirmation from them. I'm pretty laid back, we booked a house for family, spoke to them end of Nov. to ask for the date, which she said she penciled in. Since then, we have had late responses just on prices; like 2 emails. Then we got an update saying they were discussing things over 2 weeks ago. Should I be freaking out? I can't send save the dates, wedding is Sept. 7th 2012.

I am pretty sure they are closed this time of year. They may have someone in the office during certain hours. Cassandra and I quite enjoy the views and food there. Are you having the ceremony and reception there?
Let me know if you would like our Free Beach Wedding Catalog to look over. The Beach Bridal Show is Sunday April 15th at Seacrets!

My sister got married there a little over 5 years ago. She had wedding and reception, it was beautiful. I think Sean is right, they may be closed which is why it's taking them so long to get back to you. Try calling and leaving a message instead of email. If they penciled you in, I would say you are pretty good to go - I would send out save the dates. You could also just put the date and "Dewey Beach, DE" instead of being really specific about it. Good luck!
