- Wedding: May 2012
Ok Bee’s, (its a long one!)
So i really want my wedding to be super fun and i’ve organised all the things i enjoy to be there – chocolate fountain, hog roast, wii lounge, photo booth with fun masks… and a roulette table.
The problem is i booked my roulette table through a vendor i met at the biggest wedding fair in my county, he seemed great at getting people involved and having fun, really friendly and just the perfect fit for our wedding. So a few days later I booked the vendor and waited for my contract to arrive.
Three months passed and no contract, so i emailed him and reminded him, to which he appologies profusely and explained that his printer has broken and he had forgotten since to send us the contract.
One month later and still nothing, so i send a strong email to remind the vendor. He tells me he will send it immediately.He also tells us he is doing a wedding in our town that weekend so if we want to pop in and see his work we can. This worries me as i wouldn’t want strange people coming to see my reception before i got there on my wedding day, so we decline his offer.
Next month still nothing, i call him and he tells me he can’t find my payment. I looked up the dates from my bank and send him them to save arguements and he agreed to send the contract. By this point I wanted to cancel him for being an ass but Fiance has a little faith in people so by this time its time for the next county wedding fair so we decide to pay the vendor a visit at this stand. When we arrive we see him talking to a couple, as he sees us his eyes nearly pop out of his head and he visibly tries to get us away from his stand and keep us from making a scene. He is smooth and reassuring and writes on the bank on an envelope that he has recieved our deposit for X date and for X service, and again reassures us that he will be there.
Its been another month and on the weekend i send him a very annoyed email. I told him to email me a copy of the contract, said i would print two contracts, sign them, mail them to him to sign both and keep one for himself and mail me back the other. Today i recieved an ESSAY about how selfish I am, that he’s busy as its xmas/new yrs and that i would be unhappy if a bride with a wedding 10 months away took his time away from my wedding to sort out her wedding. he told me i have had more than enough verbal reassurance of his service and that that will have to be enough for now.
Bee’s, i think he is scamming us. I think he probably won’t turn up to the wedding or if i even want him to as he’s been so rude and i don’t want to pay someone who clearly doesn’t care about their buisness or my wedding! I dont think im being unreasonable but Fiance doesnt want the hassle of firing him. The other issue is i can’t find another venor in my budget that has my date free 🙁 and it’s something i really wanted!
Help! what to do?
