@CakeyP:  Argh so frustrating! We had a similar situation 3 weeks before our wedding when our coordinator quit and they didn’t even tell us. I only found out because I had called to ask about the seating plan. I was so pissed off and hurt that she didn’t even call us. On the upside, I voiced how upset I was and they ended up upgrading our chairs and linen for us 🙂 Just breathe it’ll all work out but definitely discuss your expecations with the new guy.

Your frustrations are definitely understandable.

Half the reason I chose my venue was the amazing venue coordinator. She’d been in the business for over 20 years, and she knew what she was doing. A few months later I showed up to a meeting, and I was told she was gone. So I met with the new coordinator, and I liked her enough. Then I was emailing that new coordinator a few weeks later and told AGAIN that she was also gone. Talk about rage!

Finally we had coordinator #3 for the remaining time. I had little faith in her at first, but she definitely shined. She was incredible, and she made sure to advocate for me and made sure everything was as smooth as can be.

So defintiely don’t knock the new coordinator until you met the person. He/she could be just as amazing, or even better. But it’s definitely stressful, and I’m sorry for that!

@CakeyP:  ugh! I feel your pain. We went through 4 venue coordinators. 4!! It was really ridiculous, and at the time I was very stressed out. Everything turned out fine though, so don’t stress too much. 🙂

@CakeyP:  Yeah, I get it. It’s still so nerve wracking to leave your big day in the hands of someone else! Just meet and go over every detail, then let it be. Good luck!
