That’s not really fair that weddingwire removed it.  I think you were really professional in your review.

I feel your pain about the cake.  I had ordered red velvet and when I cut the cake on the big day… regular chocolate.  Nobody but me and my husband noticed, and it tasted great, but I was disppointed.

Geez, I’m sorry you had to deal with that!  By mistreating you, your mother, and planner, she’s simply adding to the evidence that she has no business sense.  I agree that you were very specific and straightforward in your review, nothing that seemed unfair or slanderous.  It’s unbelievable that weddingwire would pull your comments!  How else are other brides-to-be going to know what they may be getting themselves into?  

We’re meeting with a baker today after work for a tasting.  I’ve already printed photos to take along.  Because of your post, I’ll make sure that I spell out exactly what I want.

Wow, I am so sorry that weddingwire removed that review.  I’m sure some bride will really appreciate your posting since it might save her all kinds of problems!

I have done a lot of searching through google for vendors, and they let you post reviews!

Wow.  Can you contact weddingwire – maybe send an email or two from the baker – and get your review reposted?? because if I were a bride I’d definitely want to know all this.  Glad you posted this for us!

WeddingWire does not trust the veracity of the reviewer and will side with the vendor.  You have to prove your vendor was incompetent to post a bad review.  Seriously??  I just avoid that site.

I apologize that you had such a bad experience. That should’ve never happened especially with weddingwire! Thanks for the information, I’ll be sure not to add that person as a vendor friend for my business. But other than that I’m glad to hear that the rest of your wedding was great! Congrats on your new marriage!

I’m so glad that you posted a link to this on the other Destin thread. I remember reading it, but had forgotten. We’re planning on using Confections on the Coast I think. Fatty Patty’s in on the Seaside list, but her cakes look so bad in all the pictures I’ve seen, I wasn’t impressed.

Double thanks for posting this! I am in the area and will for sure avoid her business.

I had a bad experience with Fatty Patty’s as well, and felt afterwards that the good reviews on WeddingWire were misleading.  I met with her, liked the cake, we came to a general agreement, and she said she would email me paperwork that night.  I never heard from her!  I booked someone else who turned out to be FABULOUS but then Renee of Fatty Patty’s had the gall to email me the paperwork–a few weeks before my wedding and MONTHS after we’d met–as if no time had passed at all.  Extremely unprofessional.
