- Wedding: March 2014
We have met with five caterers now.
We really liked one of them. They sat down and talked to us for a good hour or so about what they could do and how cheaply they could do it. We never received the promised quote. Following up has been fruitless.
We liked another. He showed us all his pictures and the fancy things he could do. He told us he prefers the couple come up with their own menu. We spent the next month and a half going back and forth amongst ourselves and with our family. We were so proud of ourselves when we sent him our menu, and we had pretty much decided by that point to go with him. It took him over a week to let us know he had hired someone else for our date.
We found another caterer. We talked to him and thought he would do a great job, and really had his stuff together. We gave him the menu we had given the other guy, and he offered tweaks, suggestions, and told us all about what he could do. He promised us a quote by the end of the next working day. It’s now been two weeks.
The caterers we didn’t like are blowing up our email…..
We hired a DOC. We met with her at a coffee shop and there was major chemistry. She sounded like she really knew what she was doing. She told me to send her a picture of my dress and a link to my Pinterest. We gave her a deposit and signed a contract.
I sent her the picture and the link. She never answered my email. FI sent her an email. She never answered that, either. He has called twice and his calls have not been returned. I seriously regret hiring her at this point because she has not had any communication with us whatsoever. I think I am most disappointed with her.
I know it’s not me, because A.) I don’t make any unreasonable demands, B.) I’m not bossy or super emotional, and C.) The workers at my apartment, the waitresses and cashiers at the restaurants and coffee shops I frequent, my hair lady, and my doctors all seem to like to see me show up and enjoy talking to me.
I have the money. I want to give them money. I have no idea what the deal is, but I wish these people would get their stuff straight. Just a simple, “Hey, I don’t think you’re a good fit for my ______ company” would be better than radio silence. Ugh.
Not looking forward to a foodless, ill-planned wedding……
