try meeting with her in person, and ask why her original quote was so far off the mark. I’d say, if she’s willing to work with you in person, get it in writing then and there (jot down numbers, make a photo copy, initial and date it, then you both get a copy to keep; real contract to be drawn up later). If she won’t bend, then I’d say get out. She might be great, but you don’t want to work with someone who 1) is deceptive or 2) is scatterbrained and can’t remember details or 3) won’t work with you.

That’s crazy!  I’d also say to meet with her in person and see if you can talk it back to the original ideas.

Sounds to me like she reeled you in, then socked you with a huge raise in price, banking on you already committing in your heart to her stuff! I say shop around, don’t be jerked around by these vendors, they take advantage of brides and play on their emotions.

We loved the idea of our first caterer, too, but when it came in at more than $3000 over what we had discussed as the MOST it would be, we dropped the idea and went with someone else. The someone else turned out GREAT and we ended up saving more than $4000 on our budget.

Good luck!
