I did when I first started planning. However, I found a venue where I can always speak to someone who will answer my questions, whether it be the owner, his wife/the manager, or my banquet coordinator. I wouldn’t book with a place where it is impossible to get a hold of someone because you’ll probably have a ton of questions between now and your wedding, especially if you’re not a pro at wedding planning. Good luck!

@Meggiemae14:  What I actually did was copy a message and paste it into an email for every vendor of a type so they all got the same info and I got good quotes/feedback and everything was in writting.

I honestly hated calling people as it felt awkward and more daunting. It might help you with the emails and you can always call the ones you like to find out more information in case someone replies telling you something you wished you asked the others about 🙂

That is exactly how I felt before we chose our venue.  We were considering a northern lodge wedding, and I must have called and emailed dozens of them, with many responses being either delayed, or not at all.  That was actually a big deciding factor when we chose a venue closer to home, with a co-ordinator who was totally on the ball, responded promptly to emails, and always picks up her phone.

At least this will help you find a venue who knows how to communicate.  Good luck!!

I was just on the phone with our venue on the hotel side to secure our accomodations and was talking to the manager. We had spoken not a week prior and she was extremely flighty on the phone, saying very different things from what he has talked about and kind of side stepping my questions. Then she put me on hold because she said the phone was ringing. FOR 10 MINUTES. She finally got back on and said sorry, it’s just a hard time because people are checking in. I asked if I should call back and she said no, it’s okay. Then started talking to people passing by. Then told me she would have to call me back.

Not impressed.

I feel like you’ll feel this way throughout the whole process. I have all my big vendors down and love them all, but spent a ton of time leaving tons of voicemails and unanswered emails. And even now, we’re trying to nail down a rehearsal dinner space and i’m back in the boat of sending out unanswered requests.
