I would seriously fire her. It doesn’t sound like she’s doing much. I wouldn’t mind losing this kind of a friend. Just tell her it’s your wedding and you want things done a certain way and if she can’t do it, she can’t be a vendor. If you plan ahead very well and have checklists and a good wedding party it is very manageable not to have a coordinator on the day of. Our wedding went very well without one. Everyone pitched in to set up in the morning, including linens, table numbers, aisle decor, setting out fans and programs, etc. Do the water bottles, favors, and anything else you want. This is your wedding!!

@rachelss: I agree! You are paying HER she should be doing everything you want. I would ask her to refund all the money you have given her and have her give you back all the supplies you have and ask a few friends to come over and help!

I would be sooo mad at her! That’s not fair and it doesn’t seem like she is a very good friend to you! I would  enlist some of your friends who will really be there for you to pitch in and make your big truely the day you want with everything included.

Fire her and see if you can get any of your money back. The harsh reality of my wedding planning process is that if you want anything done right, you have to do it yourself. Seriously, every single thing I delegated to other friends and family got screwed up. The only exeception is hired professionals. Those people should do exactly what you want, period. Since this girl is not acting like a hired professional, then there is no longer any reason to keep her employed.

done and done! and its not too late, get organized and get going.

regarding the fortune cookies — another bee posted that she was using http://goodfortunecookies.com/ and they were really cheap.  maybe you can still have your fortune cookies!! 

and i agree with everyone else — get your money back. she’s not doing what you had originally agreed upon; she broke the contract.  you deserve to have what you want on your wedding day, not what someone else says is “easier”, especially when you are paying them!
