@EffieTrinket:  Sorry you are going through this. How much did you pay her for the deposit? Did she already cash the check?

@EffieTrinket:  Yes, yes you should fire her. Totally unacceptable.

You hired her to make things easier, not harder. You hired her for less stress, not more.

Yup. I’d definitely fire her. No sense in wasting money on someone who isn’t doing their job.

@EffieTrinket:  Yes, fire her.  Ask for all your deposit back since she’s done NOTHING for you. 

ETA – if it would make you feel better to not be lying when you said “We decided to go with someone else who was more responsive” – hire someone else first, or at least get in contact with them and ask them to hold the date until you get the deposit from the first one.

That’s awful and i’m sure incredibly frustrating. I say fire her. You deserve someone who is willing to go the extra mile to make the most important day of your life as stress free as possible.

@almostmrsj:  +1 Agreed… you need to find her and get your money back – was she a legit DOC? It seems very fishy.

@EffieTrinket:  well then what the heck… I’d track her down and ask for an explanation, and unless she has some legit reason (like she’s been in the hospital, loss in the family, etc.) I’d say you ask for your deposit back because she hasn’t communicated anything to you and you have lost valuable planning time because of her lack of communication/response.

@EffieTrinket:  I’m confused.  DOC usually means “Day of Coordinator”.  Is she a day of coordinator or was she contracted to provide general wedding coordination?  If she’s a DOC I don’t think her behavior is that odd.  I would look at your contract to see what services are covered by it and if she isn’t providing them, you should be able to cancel the contract in writing or by the terms of the contract.  If you don’t have a contract then you don’t have much recourse because there really is nothing other than a verbal agreement and a check regarding what services she is supposed to provide.

@EffieTrinket:  What was the deposit for?  What was the amount?  Does she have a supervisor or partner you can call to find out what’s up?  I don’t blame you for being irrate, one of my biggest pet peeves is radio silence from someone who works for me.

@beachbride1216:  I agree with you.  But it’s still very rude not to respond to someone who’s hired you, regardless of the contract terms.  She could at least say something like, “Working on it,” lol.

@EffieTrinket:  you definitely can – explain you would appreciate response and better communication and are concerned that her lack of. Allow for her to step it up and do her job, and if then, she doesn’t you can fire her. But I would try and find out why she has gone AWOL.
