Am I being a crazy pants here or would this bother you too? Sorry this is kind of long.
We want to have our ceremony in the garden courtyard of a historical museum site and have been ready to book for nearly 2 weeks. I’m planning from across the country, so it’s a little tricky to connect with vendors because of the time difference, but I’m getting a little nervous about this one. The woman is very nice, but she is incredibly slow getting back to me. I first contacted her via phone and left a voicemail, but after 2 days I didn’t hear anything back, so I emailed her and she replied within a couple of hours. She said our date was available, gave me general info and everything sounded great, so I told her we’d like to go ahead and book. She asked me for some information so she could draft the agreement, but mentioned she’d be out of the office until the following Wednesday (this was on a Friday). I emailed her back the information she requested and figured we’d finalize everything when she returned.
Well, I got a voicemail from her the day she returned and it was like we hadn’t even had the email conversation the previous Friday. She said the date was still available, what the deposit was, etc. She was returning the message I’d left when I initially tried to call her and she didn’t connect that with the email conversation we’d had before she was out. So I tried to call her back to explain, but she didn’t answer. I emailed her again, replying to the conversation we’d had the previous week and she said she was sorry she didn’t connect the two but she was trying to get her head above water after being out of the office. She said she would draft the agreement and we could arrange to pay the deposit once she sent it (which she said she would do “soon”). I haven’t heard anything from her since and it’ll be a week tomorrow. Should I try to contact her to follow up again or just wait a couple more days? I’m pretty irritated because we’ve been ready to lock this down and she’s so hard to get a hold of! We have our reception venue booked and I want to get this all set, too. This venue is perfect for us, so it figures the process of booking would be such a challenge
