What Happens When a Venue Changes Owners?

Right now I'm working with a lesbian couple planning for a Scottish-themed gay wedding, complete with dark red and hunter green tartan colors.  They originally booked a historic home with classic furniture and decor to complement their theme.  

We just found out that the venue has been sold and the Great Room where the ceremony and dancing will be held has been painted turquoise...not exactly a match to dark red and hunter green. In addition, the furniture has been removed and replaced with contemporary sofas and glass tables. It looks good, don't get me wrong - but it clashes with my client's wedding.

Fortunately we have six months to resolve this and may need to find another venue for their gay wedding.  But when wedding venues are sold, there's no guarantee a couple is going to get what they originally signed on for.  Venue contracts say nothing about changing the decor.  Couples are out of luck if the current or new owner changes decor on a whim.  

I have plan for solving this problem - but tell me in the comments, what would you do?
