- Wedding: June 2014
If there’s one phase that gets me riled up it’s the statement of “Oh it must have been a misunderstanding…” or the implication of a “misunderstanding”.
Without dragging up the whole shebang…
We hired a travel agent to help us plan our wedding at our destination wedding location. We paid our travel agent a wedding administration fee of $250 to act on our behalf. Sadly our travel agent’s franchise closed and we were shipped off to another travel agency within the corporate family.
Upon first meeting I wasn’t impressed with this new agent but I figured how difficult could this be, we just want their standard wedding, with a standard group dinner, and a standard cake. No fuss, no muss.
This new travel agent has been nightmare, everything is “don’t worry I’ll take care of that” and then when I check confirmation receipts, items are missing OR when I ask for the item for the 3rd+ time eventually she can fit it in her schedule to deal with it. This is definitely not helping with my goal of a stress limited wedding. I tried to talk to our original agent and their hands are tied so we’re stuck with the new one and oh joy she owns her franchise so there’s no one we can complain to.
I don’t understand how hard it is to misunderstand what I’m asking for. Std wedding, check. Standard group dinner, check. Standard cake, check. It should take all of 15 minutes to coordinate this. And mind you it’s written in black and white as I prefer email to phone conversations.
Instead, she can’t give us a timeline for the wedding and she left some of our party off the dinner reservation. Mind you, we booked this wedding 18 months in advance, have less than 15 in our party, and only one family has dropped out, the rest of the party has remained consistent for the entire 18 months.
I’m losing my mind and trying not to go bridezilla with less than 60 days left, but I’m really going to be pissed when I get down there any everything won’t be in order. The term breach of contract is coming to mind – especially, since it appears I have to go behind this woman and check everything she says she’s doing is in fact done.
FML. I hired them to coordinate…seems like I should have just done this myself.
