If you really like them, try again. I would. Be a little firmer, let her know you need numbers so you can make a final decision. How long until your wedding? 

Sure, she’s being a little unprofessional by not responding by her own deadlines. But it’s still wedding season. Do you know if she has another job, is this wedding catering an on-the-side thing? 

Just things to keep in mind. 🙂

Jenny905:  that’s a long time to wait, BUT if you’re requesting things that take some extra effort I’d cut her a little slack.  I was having issues with my caterer not keeping me in the loop when things too a while and I sent him an email asking to keep me informed – if things are taking a while just let me know.  I get that shit happens, just keep me in the loop and then I won’t go crazy.

If you’re really set on this venue you might not have a choice but to deal with them.  IS there any way the venue will consider other caterers?  I’d tell them that you’re having a poor experience.  I know after I booked my wedding, our venue added 3 additional caterers which was amazing news as I wasn’t in love with the original 3.
