Oh my goodness, I’m so sorry to hear you’re dealing with this awful woman. I know exactly what you mean by being upset by the underlying animosity, I had a bit of a blow-up with my planner a couple of weeks back and even though she apologised (only because I threatened to hire another planner, even though we’re two weeks out from the wedding), there’s still an underlying resentment that I absolutely hate.

Is it too late for you to fire her? I’m assuming you’ve paid a deposit? Are you able to find someone who can come in and take over? Some of the things you’ve mentioned, for me, are unforgivable. She sounds both incompetent and disrespectful – I can’t believe she’d mutter in a different language in front of you! My planner did a similar thing, she apparently got sick of me and started emailing my fiance direct in French – knowing full well that I don’t correspond in French. 

When I had my issues with my planner (more organisational than anything – she basically didn’t give us any deadlines for payments and then suddenly demanded we pay 50% deposits for all the vendors over a bank holiday weekend, and lost it when I said we couldn’t do it until the next day when the banks were open) I was seriously considering cutting my losses, and dealing with the vendors and venue directly and then just finding a day-of coordinator to manage things on the day.
