@nickiandjasonwedding:  That’s . . . hilariously unprofessional. I’m almost tempted to as for her full name so people can do some stealth internet search on whether she’s actually a retired attorney (and if so, why she retired – maybe lack of professionalism?). It’s good that you’re putting this out though, so no other couples stumble into using her for their big day.

I’m actually considering NOLA for our wedding, and since your venue sounds like it was amazing to work with, would you mind either putting the name up here or PM’ing me with it? I’ll be planning from Houston, so a reliable venue or other coordinator is absolutley critical.

That was an incredible read! Hilarious. Thank you for posting this review– I’m not planning to marry in NOLA but I’m glad this is out there for brides who are.

unbelievable story – i couldn’t stop reading to finally end with that letter – priceless! this is like something straight out of a TV plot…glad you survived it fine and everything went off without a hitch realy! i hired a planner too a year ago who is a lawyer by profession and sometimes i feel like i could be doing a little bit of a better job than her and she isn’t super responsive but then again, I am having a two day wedding in another ocuntry where i dont speak the language so she is fine, and MUCH better than Lulu!

That sounds horrible. A friend of mine runs Sapphire Events in NOLA and has been super helpful for me. We ended up not hiring her because we decided to get married in Sonoma instead of NOLA. 

PM me if you want / need an intro. 🙂

@nickiandjasonwedding:  Agree that you should definitely spread the word about your experience with her!  The reason these folks can stay in business is because brides are not repeat customers (hopefully Smile), and now she’s on to the next unsuspecting couple.  People may (paternalisticly, I think) tell you to focus on the positive aspects of your wedding, and I agree, but certainly not the exclusion of paying it forward in the hopes that other couples won’t have similar frustruations.  I empathasize with you very much — sadly, a lot of my gfs have had bad experiences with their planners, but not to this extreme extent.

@nickiandjasonwedding:  are you planning on writing this on a review site?  

another bee posted something similar yesterday.  she completely bashed her venue and everyone was very supportive.  then the venue owner came on and told his side of the story to which everyone sided with him.  sorry to say, but there are three sides to every story and i’m quite curious to hear lulu’s, especially when she has a few dozen 5 star reviews online.

@mandika:  great advice!  but, they wouldn’t list the clients that were dissatisfied, right?
