kelowna2014:  Aw! Love 🙁 I know what you mean, she was refered to me by my venue so I didn’t do as much googling as I should of. I gave her a $1000 deposit.. which I’m sure I’ll never see again. My last email to her was me kindly cancelling her services and asking for my deposit back.

I asked her how much I should budget for a DJ 6 months ago and she never got back to me. I figured it out so I just left it alone. But, in Jan I emailed her my wedding day time line to review, she emailed me right back and she would call me the following day, I waited 3 days before following up, she told me she was to busy and I needed to be more patient. So I waited 2 more weeks before leaving her a voicemail, no response. That’s when I started to google and thats when I knew I should have listened to my gut. When I first chatted with her she was a little pushy, I told her what I wanted and she didn’t even seem to hear me, just told me what would look better, but I told myself it would be okay because my venue told me she was awesome. I emailed her 2 weeks ago to let her know that I was cancelling and would like my deposit back. Her response was that I never gave her a chance and she would be in touch with me March 1. Still so sign of her..

Eeek! Your wedding is going to be beautiful!! 🙂

OMG! Mine to, she is my only stress, everything else has been great.

I’m headed to Osoyoos at the end of March and have a meeting with my venue coordinator, I’ve printed off the reviews I’ve found and the BBB rating, just so they are aware who they are recommanding. I wish I had thought about sending the money through Paypal, at least maybe then it’s insured. I emaied it, urgh. Hopefully, if you change your mind, your covered. And if you stick it out I hope she steps it up for you!
