    This stinks! 

    Is there a physical location of this business that you can go to?  If you are there in person, they will HAVE to deal with you.  

    I come from a family with grade kajones when it comes to customer service, so here’s what I can tell you:

    Do not believe them if they say something to the effect of, "There’s nothing we can do about it."  THERE’S ALWAYS SOMETHING THEY CAN DO.  They can call in favors to other local companies, they can refund your contract in total, and you can contact the BBB.

    Also, did you pay on a credit card?  If so, call your credit card company and dispute the charge.  Most companies will back you up.  

    It totally burns me when businesses feel that if they ignore the problem (customer) it will go away.  Nope.  

    I hope it all turns out well!  And if all else fails, f-it!  It’s your wedding day, and focus on having fun for that!!!

    I agree with JennyBryde, there must be something they could do and if they are not listening to you any more, have your father or someone new call. I’d think about disputing the charge after the show up at the wedding sans Excursion (I’d be afraid if you did it before they might see it and not show up at all).

    I’ve heard of this happening a lot with limo companies. Did you read ALL of the fine print in your contract. You might be surprised what you find. A good friend had something very similar happen to her, but because of certain small print wording in the contract, the company was really allowed to do whatever they wanted. Sometimes they can make more money renting limos to other companies, as opposed to directly to clients, so they make sure their contracts cover this.

    I also agree with Jenny.  Keep trying to get what you want – chances are they CAN do something.  I would also follow Bree’s suggestion of reading over the contract again just to be sure of the fine print.  I had to call the BBB one time to complain about a company and that company called me to offer me free stuff- but at that point i was so mad at the company that I didn’t even want to deal with them for free stuff.

    I know your wedding is really soon, so if all that is to much to handle at this point, maybe you will feel less stressed out if you just take what they give you and just drop the whole thing.

    I’d contact the "Better Business Bureao"  (sorry bad spelling)  Then, write a professional letter to the company and hand delivery it if you can.  Request your money back and for them to still provide service.  And write a letter to the editor of the local newspaper.

    Hi JenineD

    I was wondering if you left any feedback regarding this company on Wedding Wire or WeddingBee in the vendor review section?
