- Wedding: August 2013
Our best man searched for and found a DJ, a good few months ago. He gave our address and we waited for some paperwork to come through….and waited….and waited. Eventually we asked the best man to get back into contact with him, explaining we hadn’t heard anything. He gave my fiancé’s email address and mobile number so he could contact us directly.
After a couple of weeks of still not hearing, and my fiancé ringing several times and leaving messages on the answer machine…we had just about given up on them and going to ask a friend instead, when the best man got an email from the DJ asking about the answer phone messages from “my fiancé’s name” referring to a wedding at “our venue” on “our date” and whether it was referring to the same wedding…yes!!
He said he was concerned that we hadn’t received the pack so emailed it over, which I promptly filled out with our information and emailed back asking for confirmation of receipt. 5 days later I still had not heard anything so I emailed from another email address checking whether the email had actually gotten through because we have had trouble with people receiving emails from it before. He replied that yes, he had received it but hadn’t responded due to a family emergency (the office had been closed) and had only received the email that day. He promised to look over the email that day and respond duly. This was 12 days ago.
My wedding is in 19 days and I am not sure when I should make contact again. I don’t want to ask too soon but also, if I leave it too late then there isn’t much I can do. I just want him to email back to confirm that he has read it all through and understands it – I don’t want him turning up and doing what we have asked him specifically not to do (the form asks for songs we want playing and songs we don’t want playing). My fiancé has also asked for some songs that aren’t ones that you would usually hear at a wedding disco and it would be good to know whether he has them or not.
I don’t know if I am overreacting to the lack of response throughout the process but I think we have the right to know whether or not the family emergency is going to affect his ability to work. I don’t mind if it does, but it would just be good to know.
