    Try the Better Business Bureau and Wedding Wire. Is she a part of a professional organization or a highly rated group of recommended vendors (ie. Wedding Bells Black Book)? There is also that Angie’s List online, check to see if she is on there. I would try one of those places. I am so sorry for you and the stress that this has caused you. I hope you can get past what happened and just concentrate on remembering the good aspects.

    I am being my own wedding planner because I like organizing and planning things too much!

    I’m going through the same thing so I feel your pain. 24 days to go for our wedding and our planners are threatening to back out because we actually called them on them screwing up and scamming us. That too its a destination wedding . 

    We are doing a lot of last minute preps ourselves that they were supposed to take care of . I hope ours turns out like your wedding as well despite it all. 


    I think you should just write out every bad review you can and then forget about them .. the worst is past 🙂

    If you would like a refund or partial refund, I would suggest that you type out a long list of everything that went wrong, then have someone you trust edit it to make sure that it is fairly calm and factual rather than overly emotional. Then send it to them and ask what they are going to do to make things right. THEN worry about writing reviews etc. Until you’ve made it clear in writing how very badly things went, and given them a chance to make up for it in the only way they really can at this point (financially), I think it’s best to wait on reviews.

    I would just write a bad review on weddingwire – I know I chose all my venders because they got rave reviews on weddingwire.
