Your written text messages would consitute an agreement (ie a contract) but unless you paid her in advance, you aren’t going to be able to get anything back.  The photography and videography are seperate and for such a small amount of what her service would be, no court would grant you what would be essentially “pain and suffering.”

that sucks. 🙁 sorry that happened! i can’t believe you waited until 10 minutes before you had to leave to start doing your hair though–as soon as i realized she wasn’t coming (or even had the though cross my mind) i’d have starting working on my own head asap!!

without a contract i don’t know that there’s much you could do. even with one, court is very expensive to get back, what, $200 or less? i’d review your experience on any website i could, and i would continue to try to contact her if there was anything you paid up front. you do need to be refunded that, or ask if you can apply that to services at the salon at least. if she works in a salon, go up there or call continuously until you get to speak to her–don’t try her cell phone. she won’t be answering that.

sorry you had a bad experience–i agree with the PP who said to have some re-do photos with your hair/makeup professionally done, in your dress, with your new hubby. 🙂

Honestly I would see if your wedding party (bridesmaids and grooms men) would get back in there outfits (grooms men could wear black slacks with button down the color of your wedding) and you get all dolled up in your dress and hair/makeup and go to an area and take pictures (if bridal party cant just do you and hubby) I’m really sorry this happenEd

Have to disagree in part with many of the above.  An oral contract — she agrees to provide services, you agree to pay and other terms — is enforceable.  But proving it can be messy and may not be worth your time. 

I can’t believe your hair dresser did that!  Did she offer an explanation?

Ilovetulips123:  Hi, firstly I would like to say this is absoultely horrible! <br /><br />Secondly, I am not a lawyer, I am a law student in Australia so any information I have may be different to what is applicable by the laws of whichever country or state you may live in. <br /><br />Thirdly, any AGREEMENT whether written in a formal contract, emails or verbal are considered a contract. There is an offer of services, and acceptance of services and what is called consideration passed(money usually). Did you pay her? <br /><br />I think there was a contract and she breached this – however whether you can sue her would depend on the wording of the contract (the texts, emails etc) and what money, if any, you have paid. <br /><br />I suggest seeing a lawyer/free legal clinic to see if this can go further.

In the US the verbal agreement is just as binding as a written agreement, but your recovery will be limited to the amount you paid. You’re not going to get money from the courts for your photographer bill. That’s how the law works. If you paid for your trial then get a refund but you shouldn’t bother with court.
