You’re not crazy. I probably sent 2 to 3 emails a week. Our coordinator was so great, she always responded via her blackberry within minutes. We ended up becoming friendly and I asked her if I was crazy and she said that it’s normal to get an email every other day from a bride.

Oh my gosh, I do the same exact thing. But you have to justify it to yourself that this is this person’s JOB, and she is getting paid, essentially, to answer all the questions we have. If I think about it in those terms, I don’t feel so bad.

If I notice that I’m getting quite excessive, I usually just ask to set up a meeting with her. I bring a list of my questions so we can hash it out all at once and I don’t feel like such an annoyance. However, once those meetings are over, I usually have tons more questions and shoot an email off the next day!

Don’t worry – they are used to it, and it’s only you wanting to make sure all the details of your big day are perfect!

TOTALLY!  I  have constantly emailed my resort wedding coordinator with a TON of questions. and i keep saying “this should be the last of my questions” or “sorry one more”.   she is always polite and friendly when she writes back.  but i am convinced she thinks i am a bridezilla.

I feel the same way! I’m always apologizing for every email, although she’s always super polite and helpful. I worry that I’m taking up too much of her time. But when you think about it, we’re giving them a lot of money, so they should be willing to answer all our questions ๐Ÿ™‚

I asked my venue coordinator tons of questions at first. But since I’m paying them $6,000 I didn’t feel bad ๐Ÿ™‚

Unless you need an answer ASAP, perhaps try to “save up” a list of questions for a couple of bigger emails rather than lots of small ones?

As you go, save all the question in a word document, at the end of the wedding you could post them to the Bee to help out any prospective brides with a list of questions to ask a venue.
