- Wedding: June 2012
Basically: I have changed the date for my family, I have changed my wedding location so people won’t have to drive an hour after drinking at the reception.. and now I can’t even look at places to have the wedding on north shore.
Which makes it very difficult. All the vendors, beautiful estates that hold weddings, places that I would love to have the wedding.. all on the north shore. Basically we want our wedding as private as possible. We would rather not have it at a hotel or restaurant (even though some are gorgeous here!)
We found a place on the west side (the first place we saw), and went back to it. The property is beautiful, but you can’t swim in the water. It’s not pretty clear water like most of the water here. It reminds me of Florida water, except you can swim in Florida water. I just thought, who cares, no one is swimming during the wedding!
I needed to send the save the dates out to people so I had to find a place and book it. No one else was getting back with me and I had no help trying to find another place to have it. I may be living on this Island, but I don’t know all the places. Like I said before, any “googling” I would do, everything is north shore.
The lady that works at the cottages.. my ”coordinator” was more helpful before I gave her money. I booked it August 11. I told her what information I still needed and she said ok. I still had heard nothing from her and wrote her sunday (aug 14). (This lady usually writes me back pretty quickly. No matter how many e-mails I write her or what information I need). Monday evening (aug 15) she wrote me back telling me I would have it by the end of the week. So still nothing, and Monday (aug 22) I wrote her again asking where everything is, and telling her what I needed. She hasn’t even responded? WTF
And here it is Wednesday (aug 24)… where the f*ck is everything? I need numbers to the vendors and prices for cottages to let guests know! I’m already upset that I can’t have it on the north shore and I feel just stuck with the place.
I put $1500 deposit down. If we cancel, we get $1000 back, they keep $500. It’s my mom’s money so I don’t want to lose it. I was already starting to have some doubts about the place, like I feel I didn’t have long enough to look. I am really pissed at this woman and it’s making my feelings towards the place even worse!!
What should I do?!?
Side Note: Mom is paying for everything! She is not trying to boss me around, she is letting me have what I want.. we are working great together actually. I’m sure I could offer to pay her back or something.
