- Wedding: March 2011
I have posted about my catering worries before and 2.5 weeks later I am back to say issue is not fixed.
I am getting married in New Orleans and live in Michigan and will NOT be having another trip down there until the wedding. I went in July and tasted with 3 different caterers and 4 different bakeries. I fell in LOVE with one that happened to be connected and thought how great to get both things from one person.
Fast forward. It has been about 1.5 months since this trip and my meeting with this guy. He had told me that his menu was in the middle of some changes and he was going to email me that and a copy of the contract. Said email has never been recieved. I have emailed this guy about 5 times with one answer back saying he was busy and would email me in a week. This was about 4 weeks ago. Then I called 2.5 weeks ago and talked to him in person. He was in the middle of moving his cafe to a new location and said he would email me the following Tuesday. That was 2 weeks ago this Tuesday. So yesterday I sent him an email. My aunt also knows the lady that is the EX owner of the bakery and she said she was meeting with him yesterday and telling him he needed to contact me. Still nothing this morning so around 3:30 I called his office and left a message and called his cell and left a message saying if I didn’t hear back from him I was going with someone else. STILL NOTHING!
So what should I do? How much longer should I give this guy? It is clear he sucks with communication. I am starting to worry about if he would even show up for the wedding. However, I loved his food and the cake. I HATED the food from the other places and thus would feel the need to go with someone else BUT I wouldn’t be able to do a tasting to see if I like someone else. UGH! Then the other bakeries I talked to don’t deliver on Sunday (when we are getting married) so they are out and once again would not be able to taste a diff cake either.
How would you handle this? I have 6 months left and I just worry that I need this problem fixed ASAP!
