Omg that is ridiculous!  I would have fired her long before you did!  I would not feel bad in the least.  She sounds very unprofessional.  I think you will do just fine without her services! 🙂

Hell no! I did the same thing, I wanted to use some of my own makeup and my MUA would not respond, and I didn’t like the way I looked with hers.  You definitely did the right thing, she clearly would NOT have shown up for your wedding.  Who needs that stress!  Kick her to the curb!  And let all the stress leave your body!  I was so relieved.  You have way too much to worry about at this point!

I don’t think you’re being unreasonable at all! Who reschedules on a bride that many times when her wedding is only a week away?? I think you had every right to fire her. Did you ask her to buy certain makeup for the trial, or is this to replenish her stock? Unless you specifically told her to order X makeup, I see absolutely nothing wrong with what you did!

You definitely did the right thing.  You were paying her for her services yet she jerked you around and was incredibly unprofessional and unreliable.  Don’t worry about it.  She can use her $150 worth of makeup on someone else.  It’s not like it’s a unique product made especially for you – makeup is something she can use on anyone.  It’s not made-to-measure.  

Don’t feel bad at all.

Don’t feel bad she was a flake. You don’t want her arriving super late on your wedding day.

No reply = no business from me. If she really wanted your business she should have been more proactive. I think you dodged a bullet with this one – she’d probably end up being one of those people that calls you 5 mins before she’s suppose to be there on your wedding day and tell you she has a flat tire or something.

You made the right decision. Rid your life of stress, that’s my wedding motto!
