I am an Event Planner and I would never do this. Find another planner. I am not from the Chicago area, so I have not recommendations. I’m sorry that you’re going through this it stinks.

@mwitter80: Totally agree with this.  As someone who has ran my own business for 5 years, I move everything possible before canceling with a client ONCE.  I would also never schedule an meeting during a wedding weekend.  I wouldn’t hire her, sorry.

Don’t book her – that is completely unprofessional behavior and if she’s acting like this when apparently trying to get new business than I only assume she would be worse once she has your money and contract.

Good luck with your search!

I’m with the others. It’s totally unprofessional to do things like that and she obviously doesn’t care about your business. Plus, if you hire her, letting her get away with this kind of behavior, what is to stop her from continuing to do it to you.

I would send her an email and express your disappointment in her level of service this early on. I would be understanding that life sometimes interfers, but at some point you have to keep commitments you make despite whatelse comes up. And really – cancelling to run errands…come on! Same with the pink eye. She could have explained that in an email and let you make the decision to meet with her or not.

Is DOC a coordinator or the person marrying you? Just need clarification. I’m getting married in Chicago and can keep an eye out or ask around for some recommendations.

I agree with the others that she is unprofessional and you shouldn’t book her. I looked around for a DOC in the area and I found a few in your price range:

Karolina Warren: Good reviews, price is right on for you

Camille Victoria Weddings: Good reviews, price is right on

Shannon Gail: Her price is over your budget (+300 to 800) but my Fiance and I met with her and she was fantastic. 

I hope this helps!
