Have any of you gone through this? I feel like every single vendor we’ve dealt with has taken ages to get a hold of and is super hard to maintain communication with!
I’ve had trouble with my photographer, hair/makeup artist, one cake place (not who we went with), our reception venue coordinator, as well as a few places when we were looking for reception venues never called us back.
Is it just me?

@magnet128: No it’s not just you, I swear wedding vendors are the worst! I am a freelance makeup artist and I reply to all of my clients including brides within 1 business day.
My decorator took almost 2 weeks just to email me an invoice! Our venue took a week and a half to get back to us about corkage fees….and in the end we called them and finally got someone.
I think it’s just the industry and if I were you I would express my frustration. I have told each vendor how disappointed I was and they shaped up real quick after that.

@june2013bride: Ugh I’m so passive aggressive on that stuff lol. I get that you are busy, but to not reply even after a week? That’s a little too much. And our reception is certainly not that busy because we live in a smaller-ish town lol.
I think I will try to say something though, I’ve been waiting almost 2 weeks for an email back from my reception venue coordinator and she is ridiculously hard to get ahold of on the phone.
As for the girl I was going to use for my hair stylist, I’m probably just going to try to find someone else.
