i had some problems with that but i mostly found someone else. My wedding is march 2010 too! We already booked our photographer and caterer, the one we have trouble with seems to be DJ’s! Either we get nothing or tons of spam! Have you tried phoning during business hours? I am amazed at how many wedding vendors aren’t avid emailers.

I think since you are so far in advance, you should expect a delay.  Prime wedding season has begun so it may take vendors longer than usual to get back to you, especially if you are filling out the contact form online and not calling directly.

Good luck!!

My wedding is in August of 2010 and I have had the same problems as you with some vendors. I moved on. For me the thing is if I am trying to give them my business and they are not proactive about returning my phone calls how will they be when  I AM a client? To me that’s a big thing; I think two weeks is more than enough time to give someone who has any form of professionalism to return your calls. The other thing I have done if I really liked a vendor is to try emailing them in a fresh email a second time around. Sometimes the emails do get lost in their inbox somewhere.

I think regardless of when your wedding is if a vendor wants the probability of gaining your business they should at least send you back a courtesy email/phone call saying you might be better off contacting me later on. The other thing is I have gotten vendors who have told me I am contacting them too early. For instance a bakery that comes HIGHLY recommended from a lot of people told me I should only contact them 2 months in advance. Um. Sorry. 2 months before the wedding I will have way too much to do than worry about choosing a cake baker.

Good Luck!
