I hate to use the bridezilla word but another bee on here wrote a blog today about growing a back bone and I’m desperately in need of advice.
we are getting marrid this yr. we are a few months out and have put deposits down with many of our vendors but they are seriously lacking in the professionalism department!
ordered shoes from store- they did not fit when they came in so the sales lady told me she would order them once more a half size smaller and if that did not work then I would have to go elsewhere bcs she doesnt want to waste her time bringing in stuff that doesn’t fit- hellooo.. you measured my foot and ordered the correct size, how is it my fault.
my major problem- my decorator has been MIA since november of last yr. wont answer or return phone calls. we are a few months out.. how does she know what i want! i have paid you already.. return my calls and schedule a meet up. everyone says how amazing she is and pulls through in the end.. but seriosuly have some professionalism.
k, vent ended

1. If some of your vendors are leaving something to be desired in their professionalism, tell them gently durring your next meeting. If something pops up just say “now I don’t think that this is very professional” then move on. It will likely give them a wake up call.
2. Sometimes sales people are rude. Whenever I’ve been faced with a bitchy sales lady in the past I’ve just said something along the lines of “Wow, is that this stores policy or are you just being rude? I think I will go somewhere else, but first can I please speak to your manager?”
3. Send this vendor a certified letter!! Tell her you’re considering asking for your money back because her lack of comunication has left you feeling like she isn’t doing the job that you’ve contracted her to do. This is not okay!! It’s one thing when 8-9 months out from your wedding a vendor takes a few days, even a week maybe, to get back to you. But constantly trying and failing to contact her for 6 straight months?! This lady sounds like she’s either crazy and irresponsible, or worse, trying to get you to go away and forget the deposit money you put down.
