The fact that some vendors don’t reply to your messages or say they will get back to you and never do.
I have been trying to get an appointment with a florist and have been been waiting forever for him to get me a date. WTH?

I understand! I’ve emailed reputable vendors in my area and haven’t heard back from them. The popular places. I’ve emailed some of them twice. Nothing! WTF!
I found a venue we decided on, we can’t book until a year out from our wedding. We are planning a 6/7/14 wedding. i can’t book the venue until june 1 this year. So frustrating. My caterer is booking up, my officiant is booking up! FI said just book them. If we don’t get the venue, we’ll come up with another plan for that day!

I know!! Theres several venues I emailed multiple times and never got a response. There was another one that replied “I’m out of town and will get in touch when I get home in 2 days.” That was over a month ago and they still havent wrote back.
There was one caterer that I emailed 3 times and never got a reply. Finally met them at a bridal convention and they were RUDE.
I dont know how they think they’re going to get customers when they cant even reply to a simple email.

How about when you ask them for pricing, and they reply back and ask you to set up an appointment to come in and meet with them? I hate that. Just give me the pricing. I don’t have time to just come in and meet right now. I’m a busy person and it takes A LOT to get my scheduled cleared with my kids schedule to meet people!

While planning my wedding I have only had trouble with one vendor not getting back to me. But I ALWAYS call my vendors. Phone is so much more personal and they take you seriously when you call. If I have found a place I really like and want to make sure I get an appointment with I have gone to their shop. I don’t wait for them to come to me I go to them. Try calling instead of just emailing. People tend to return phone calls before they return emails.
