MrsHistory-Bee:  I would be annoyed too! You aren’t asking too much of her. If she can’t even meet the deadlines that she came up with herself, I would question her abilities! Planning a wedding is ALL about deadlines and timing! I would bring up your concerns to her in a direct, but not rude way. You are paying her to do a job, and you have every right to make sure that you are comfortable with her services.

How much experience does she have? What made you choose her?

If you are paying her to be a full service wedding planner and she hasn’t indicated that you are asking too much of her then she is just dropping the ball.

It sounds like she is either using time that you are paying for to try and balance all of her other commitments (over-booked herself) or she is just unorganized and mixing brides/timelines up. She may not actually be keeping her notes or thinking that you will bring everything up. 

I would not worry about being rude about this because she is not holding up her end of the deal, at the end of the day this is a business transaction! I would’ve called her by now and demanded to know why she isn’t actually doing her job and even demand a refund. 

You should meet (or call) with a list of things that should be done by now, use her timeline Ask her specifically why each individual item hasn’t been accomplished. This is when you’ll get answers such as she thought you’d call or she didn’t have time.

At the end of the day you might need to get on the phone and start setting things up yourself! You really don’t want to miss out on things you really want because she is being lazy.

I would schedule a meeting to just talk and balance your expectations with hers.
