@katkat123:  “There’s another vendor I really like, but sadly, she only does bridal packages (make up + hair) + travel fee.  The second vendor only needs travel fee and doesn’t need a hotel, and she did a good job at my friend’s wedding.”

This is the person you should hire. They’re a professional and they’re going to act like a vendor. I’d fire the friendor.

I agree with not going with the freind.  By the end of the day, the friend will cost you more, and you will be uncomfortable directing her.

Yeah, that is why I avoid hiring friends for things! I feel your pain though! If its too much hassel, find a new vendor and tell her thanks but no thanks. She sounds like more trouble than its worth IMO!
