Really, it depends.  September has become the third most popular wedding month (June, May, September) and he may be dealing with getting current clients lined up.  I know when we first started contacting our wedding venue, we had a bit of trouble getting in touch some days because we started in June, and they had a wedding every weekend.  Same with photographers.  If it’s going to drive you nuts the entire time, I would not go with that DJ, because you need to know what will drive you nuts on your wedding day and lead up to.

Sorry no, I can barely handle 24 hours (even though I “know” it’s great time), I would lose my sh*t if it took 10 days.

My DJ took, at times, up to a week to respond because they both work outside of their DJ business, so it is not unheard of in my opinion. I’m glad I waited for them because in the end I was very happy with their service, and they were so much fun. You have already made up your mind to not go with them though, so it doesn’t matter anymore. Hopefully you find someone that can respond to you in a timely matter.

I had one florist who didn’t return my email or phone call for over 2 weeks. I finally messaged her via her business FB page where she got back to me after nearly another week. It was a constant battle to get a reply I was over dealing with her. 

Another florist didn’t answer me for a month, and now has the balls to keep emailing me to find out if Id still like to set up a meeting. Apparently, she needed “a break” from her business to get re-centered. I understand that, but how could I not be paranoid that she would all of a sudden need a break the month of my wedding? 

I don’t need a reply within 24 hours, but c’mon, at least let me know you’ve received my message and that you’ll be in touch soon.

jrae05:  I’m having this issue with my caterer… it took 2 months to even get ideas of what food he can serve… then another month has gone by and I’ve sent 2 e-mails without response waiting on a quote. The issue is I’m getting married in a very small town and he’s the only one that can give us this service without it being a hassle and us paying more. But, it’s driving me crazy!

I keep telling myself, ‘Oh, it’s the busy season’. But, my wedding is in January… I would like to know how much the catering is going to cost!
