I’ve had two vendors now (a photographer and a band) flake out on me! I’m trying to figure out the best way to deal with both of these situations.
Both vendors had agreed to hold our date for us, and would give us warning and first shot if another couple came along and was interested in our date. With the photographer, I didn’t get ANY warning, until another couple had already BOOKED our date. With the band, he let us know that he was giving the other couple a chance to book them first (as we had negotiated a lower price, but they were willing to pay full price), and then the other couple booked them.
I’m feeling pretty bitter about both these situations, as these were 2 vendors (particularly the band!) we were REALLY interested in. Is this something you would want to read about in a review of your potential photographer/band? Or do you think I should just let it go and move on?
For the record – we have booked a different photographer and if you have any band recommendations up in MA, I’ll take ’em!
