@littlemiss604:  The drapes are a bit more spaced out than the ones in your illustration, but other than that I think it’s beautiful. My vote is that yes, you’re being too picky.

I see what you were going for but it looks like there wasn’t enough backdrop cloth to make it look the way you wanted.  I would be more likely to believe it was an honest decorating mistake where she didn’t have enough backdrop cloth but didn’t know it until she went to tie it and since she probably has never done a design like that, it’s understandable she wouldn’t have known exactly how much she needed.

In a few months to a year you won’t even care about this minor mistake.  I say let it go and focus on how beautiful it still looks.  I have never been to a wedding where everyhting was as decorated as your head table was so I would have been impressed with it as it is.

I’m super picky too, so I understand what you mean. Who cares what other people do or don’t notice if it still bothers you, right? In this case I would be annoyed, but unless you expect some type of partial refund then I don’t know what good would come from harping on it. I’d probably just let it go.

@littlemiss604:  …well, I see that your picture and the drapes are different to be sure…but then again, drawing something and actually making work with fabric is another animal entirely….did you try and execute this look yourself before you decided it was the backdrop you wanted?  Maybe it was the best she could do with what she had….

Either way, I guess before you say anything, decide if there’s anything she can actually do to fix it….if not, I’m not sure how bringing it up can resolve anything.

@littlemiss604:  I get why you are bothered (I think), but did you tell her you want the tops touching?  Are you or did you pay for her services? Honestly I want to say it is no big deal, but if you really told and showed her exactly what you wanted I wonder why she did not tell you she couldn’t get or didn’t have enough material. 

Think about it. If it would do any good you can tell her. She probably did her best, but maybe she should know for future reference. Honestly,  only mention if you think it will help.

I don’t think you are too picky. I think though that it can be challenging to do exactly what a drawing depicts. I would be honest and share my feelings nicely. My cousin had a vendor who she was disappointed with and she did speak to her about it. In the end she ended up  sending her a small gift of flowers to say thank you for her business and apologizing for her mess-up. Another person I know, got an apology after messing up her centrepieces. Nothing more.

I guess I would just advise you not to have very high expectations about what she comes back with. It may be a simple apology. It may be a discount. It may be nothing. If you’re going to talk to her, just do it to put your feelings out on the tale and hopefully she learns from this experience for someone elses wedding.

I dont really see why it matters now. I mean yes it’s not exact but it’s over, so unless it ruined your photo’s, there’s no reason to really care. Or unless this is the only thing you paid her for and she messed it up and you deserve a refund.
