I had previously written about researching venues and trying to figure out what might work.
Honestly? I need to vent and any tips you girls have would be great.
My boyfriend hasn’t proposed yet but we have talked about getting married next spring (yes, March 2015).
At first I was getting weird personal questions (I think to suss out whether I am serious or not) and they would respond within 24 hours to everything I sent. Lately though I can’t seem to get anyone to write or call back.
These aren’t timewaster requests (I am asking for viewing appointments for venues, etc.) I’m also pretty open date-wise (weekends in March or April should be the tiniest easier?). I don’t know what this is being caused by. It’s turned to radio silence.
Can you Bees help? Did anyone suddenly have vendors seemingly go MIA over the course of a week?

Consultette: is this one, or several venues? All I can think of is that maybe you missed the boat on your picks, and they’re too busy (or assholish) to tell you. I booked my venue 14ish months out, and I only had 2 dates to choose from. It was booked 2 full weeks in either direction of those dates. I’d imagine it may be slim pickings for march of next year.

MrsBagel: This is 4 venues on land and one company that has several boats. If that was the case, I wish at least they would be courteous enough to tell me… or to have told me two weeks ago when we first started talking that my dates would be a problem. It was all “Oh! You are flexible date-wise/it won’t be high season/we look like we can accommodate you” from everyone. That is why it’s so incredibly frustrating that I feel like I’m having to practically chase them down to take my money :-/

Consultette: I’m so sorry. I don’t have advice other than to keep on them. I’d even show up in person, under the guise of “I was in the area…”
I hope you find something, good luck!

Have you tried calling them?

Don’t just email. Some do better by phone. If you said to any you aren’t engaged yet, they won’t take you seriously. Just say that you are.
