I would be pretty pissed, especially at the DOC. Once she has your deposit, she just goes silent and doesn’t want to do the work? Really? I’m sorry you are having a hard time finding professionals who actually want to be professional. I would probably want to elope too!

It’s so crazy to me that vendors now act like you need them more than they need you. I understand that some of them are busy but weeks of not returning calls and emails is absurd & just plain rude and unprofessional.

I had a horrendous time with vendors too. Basically, my problem was that I kept falling for vendors that then turned out to, well, suck.

I had to develop a sort of two-pronged response: (1) email a whole bunch of vendors without falling too in love with any of them, then axe any that weren’t prompt, and (2) try to get over some things with vendors I really wanted. For example, our photographer, whose work I love, LOST an entire roll of film from our e-photos. But she’s been really good otherwise, so I am just going to get over it and assume that won’t happen at our wedding.

@EffieTrinket:  Your DOC you definitely have a right to be pissed at.

The fact that the caterers you did like are busy must mean they are popular. I’d give them a little break. I’m only saying this because I’ve been setting up tastings with 3 catering companies and they won’t be able to accomodate us until October. Right now is their busy season. I had one caterer I just stopped contacting because I kept emailing but not receiving a response for a week. When I did finally receive responses, they were by phone… as I’m driving home. Every single call was at the same time, on my commute home. I just figured it wasn’t meant to be. 3 options is fine to me.
