@nomnom:  WTH! Thats rude!!! I would nix that restaurant of the list! Most restaurants would make you pay a plate fee if you brought your own cake but his response was just unecessary and rude!! I live in Toronto so I’m would avoid that restaurant like the plague

@nomnom:  I would say “I am glad you made it clear in your first e-mail that you are a complete ass hole and working with you for the next several months would be pure torture. I am glad I found out BEFORE I decided to have my wedding at your establishment.”

@nomnom:  O.o oh my God, please don’t have your wedding there! Even me, the chill-laid-back-no-big-deal-mexican I am… would be so pissed.

Of course I bring shoes to a shoe store, unless you want me walking around bare foot.

My only consideration would be if they made wedding cakes… but still.

My wedding is at a resteraunt’s ballroom.  They have in thier contract that outside food isn’t allowed EXCEPT for wedding cake.  If you are hosting weddings, people want to bring in wedding cake. 

Also, I might reply with something snarky as well along the lines of “Well, most shoe stores are no shoes, no service, so I would kind of have to, wouldn’t I?”

@nomnom:  Cancel. That’s rude and uncalled for. I would 100% be finding a new venue.

If you’re looking at restaurants.. we’re getting married at Sassafraz and couldn’t be happier with the event coordinator. Our guest list is small and their minimum spend was on the cheap side, in comparison to most places in the city.

Unfortunately, I know way too many resturaunt owners and managers who would think it was perfectly acceptable to respond like that. I’ve worked in the restaurant industry for a while, and I have only met ONE manager/owner who was not a sarcastic and short tempered jerk with their customers (not saying that ALL of them are like that, I am sure there are good/normal people running restaurants, I’ve just never worked with one). Clearly this guy doesn’t deal with weddings EVER, because your question was perfectly reasonable. Ditch that place and find something else, if he started your communication like that, he’s going to be a total nightmare to deal with.

Wow. You can bet your sweet bippy I’d be writing bak and thanking them for giving me enough information to make it clear that I would never be working them, ever.

@nomnom:  On top of being rude, that doesn’t even make sense. You bet your ASS I’d bring my shoes to a shoe store. Who shows up barefoot?

@thenewmrsmax:  +100!

What a JERK!

Our private-room restaurant venue had no problem with us bringing in our own cake for $1/slice. And they definitely weren’t upset we asked about it!

Oy. Sounds like getting out of that now will save you A LOT of pain and problems with them later.  

How rude.
