Ewww, what an awful experience. I get that they were trying to make sure the order was right, but their attitude was unnecessary. What if you were a hetero couple and one of you had two dads? Or a female couple and one of you had two dads and the other just a mom? Good lord. There are so many types of families today, hello!

Oh dear! On the one hand, it’s good that they’re being concientious, because I suspect they’ve have a to deal with a number of dizzy bridezillas who’ve ordered it wrong and then blamed them and kicked off, but on the other perhaps they should have phrased it just as a confirmation of your order rather than immediately assuming you’d made a mistake.

“Hi, we’re just about to put such-and-such into production and wanted to double check your order with you before we did!”

Also, marks lost for the woman being arsey with you. Honestly, not necessary to go on the defensive just because she’s made the wrong assumption.

@Trixxie_90:  from a business standpoint the best way to go about this would have been to call and say, “we have had some technical issues lately and we are calling to verify your order to make sure we send you the right product. im so sorry for the inconvenience but could you just go over your order with us to ensure that we are in fact sending you the right items?” Boom, you verify the order is correct without acting like a dick 🙂

I vacation a lot with my best friend, Mike, who is marrying to a man in November.

Setting up hotels rooms is always a hassle.  They always call us claiming a mistake was made: “A king size bed was listed but there are two men assigned to the room.  We’ll move them to a double room.”

It never fails to happen. 

Even setting up appointments with wedding venders was a pain because they want the Bride’s name on everything.  They had to set up one of them as the “Bride” in order to get into their reservations at their venue and even at David’s Bridal (for the bridesmaid dresses).

It has to suck to constantly have to correct and justify your situation.  I get so frustrated and it’s not even my relationship.  OK, vent over 🙂

@BeachBride2014:  Yes, that is horrible. Same-sex marraige has been cool up here in Ontario for awhile now, but I was part of the fight and when we first got the right it took vendors awhile to realize if you don’t cater to the needs of ALL your clients, then you lose every time. In a large city like Toronto, as a business you are just stupid not to cater to our large LGBTTTIQQQ population. They sure learned fast, and the ones who didn’t lost the game. Hopefully cities in the USA will learn this fast and fix their approach.

@vorpalette:  If people stop for like 2 seconds before acting like morons it’s really not difficult to find ways to not be a dick 🙂

@Trixxie_90:  That’s so annoying and people don’t take hints!  Just to other day I went in to pick up my dress for their wedding. 

The girl there asked me: “What’s the bride’s name?” 

Me: “Mike *****”

Girl: “No the bride’s name.”

Me: “There is no bride.”

Girl: “Huh?”

Me: “It’s two men.”

Girl: “?”

Me: “…getting married.”

Girl: “Oh, did one get a dress here?”

Me: “?!?!”

This should not be such a foreign concept in CT!  This riles me up.
