- Wedding: June 2013
So my wedding is on Saturday, but it seems as though a bunch of our vendors have forgotten about this (or my fiance and I… either one)
We booked our venue in October 2011. It’s a golf course, and we booked it through the general manager of the course. He’s great to deal with in person, but an absolute NIGHTMARE to get a hold of. We had to email him several times to do our menu tasting, and several more times to have our final meeting. Our final meeting was over a week ago, and he asked us to send over several documents. We sent everything he needed, but have since needed to make a couple of small changes. We have heard nothing from him, despite several different attempts at communication (venue phone, cellphone, email… I’m seriously considering a carrier pigeon at this point). Not even a confirmation that he received everything he needed. I’m very concerned, because we don’t even have an invoice from him (something that is promised at least a week out in our contract), because I want to look over it to make sure that we are completely on the same page with our meals, bar packages, late night menu, etc. I’m concerned that if there’s a problem, we won’t have time to make necessary changes.
Our DJ has seemingly forgotten about us as well. Again, we had a meeting with him about two weeks ago, and sent him all of our documentation. He told us he was going to send over a couple of MP3s for us to listen to because he was going to chop some songs to our preference. Again, nothing. We need to confirm his arrival time so he can rehearse with our soloist and string quartet, and I’d really like to get these details ironed out so I don’t have to worry about them later in the week.
The last vendor is our point-person for our cocktail hour entertainment. We’re having a baseball-themed wedding, and we’re getting our team’s mascot to take pictures with guests. We contacted the team in September to ask if this were possible. They said it was, but would confirm details with us later. Well, the details still aren’t confirmed. They said they would follow up in February, then April, then the end of April, then mid-May, and now it’s the end of May and we still haven’t gotten confirmation of what is going on.
UGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I know in the grand scheme of life these are little things that I’m freaking out about, but I’m SO OVER them. I have loved loved loved loved loved planning my wedding, but I don’t want these last few days to sour the experience. Anyone else need to vent???
Also: Weddingbee needs to have a board strictly for “Venting.” I thought this was too petty for “Emotional.”
