I’m sorry about that vendor, but I hope that the rest of her wedding was a success…

It could be worse, Monty never showed up to my wedding, and 7 months later, he still hasn’t returned my deposit.

I am Monty Benton, the owner of Texas Affairs Mobile DJ. The comment posted by panderson was indeed canceled and a cashiers check was delivered to his home address last week. There was a delay but a copy of the cashiers check is available for his deposit and my apologies to him for the delay in not getting this to him sooner.

In response to the “not kidding“. We have done hundreds of weddings and ceremonies and five star email testimonials are always available and in fact forwarded to potential clients. We pride ourselves with the truth. But while we can’t always bat “1000 %” we do bat “995 %”. There are always a chance for things to come up in any situation and we do our best to solve issues whether it is our fault or someone else’s.

However, as many wedding participants can attest, there are “MOMZILLAS and “BRIDEZILLAS” out there which is one reason a cable show has devoted a whole series to it. “Not Kidding” is just simply not stating the truth but with the advent of the internet I suppose anyone can post anything and not be held liable for it. So as a Christian I forgive them and move on. Christ never sinned and they crucified him, can you imagine if the internet was around 2000 years ago?Imagine the “Blogs”!

So my response to critics? If the complaint is legitimate I will do my best to address it and find a solution. In the meantime our references cast a “Tall Shadow” over any people throwing rocks in their glass houses.

Canceled? What was canceled? My wedding certainly wasn’t, and your services at the wedding weren’t.

“Paul, my dj was supposed to be there 90 minutes ago. Sorry. My god.  I just called to fire them and will issue you a full refund. I am trying to get someone out there but everyone is working. This has only happened twice in eeven years. I don’t know what to say. I am out of town at my daughters birth.

Monty”

That doesn’t sound like someone whose services were canceled, and apparently by “will issue you a full refund” you meant promise to meet me and cancel 3 times, and only refund me seven months later because I’ve been leaving negative reviews.

SEVEN MONTHS to refund my deposit is ridiculous, especially considering you didn’t even refund it after receiving a letter from my attorney. THERE’S NO EXCUSE FOR THE AMOUNT OF TIME IT TOOK FOR YOU TO REFUND MY MONEY.

Once again, my apologies for the delay in getting the check to you. However the CASHIERS CHECK COPY is available for anyone to see and CLEARLY STATES CANCELATION for 10-10-09 Event.

Doing the right thing motivated me in returning your deposit. Not a letter from a attorney or negative review postings. I have been in business 15 years and don’t expect a 100% satisfaction rate. But do strive for one. No way you can satisfy everyone all of the time. Business is GREAT because WE HAVE TREMENDOUS REVIEWS FROM PAST CLIENTS. THE PERSON ASSOCIATED WITH YOUR EVENT WAS INDEED TERMINATED.

These posting boards are for the most part a extreme waste of time and generate little or zero business except for the advertising these companies charge to the vendor. But I suppose you can continue to fester in your anger. I have already been forgiven by the highest authority. Peace.

These postings are in no way a waste of time.  There are a lot of vendors out there for brides to choose from and we need all the information we can get to make the best decision.  It is up to our own judgement to figure out the truths from someone just spamming a vendor due to a bad experience on either part.

So, don’t hate on our blogs or our boards because someone is making a review that is negative.  I would sure like to know if someone is going to take 7 months to return a deposit, no matter what the reason.  Just because we read blogs and boards and try to help other brides out doesn’t mean that we are all “bridezillas”.  So, thanks.

I agree with Miss Brit.  I also think that as a vendor, you really should tread carefully in your postings on this blog.  The tone of you posts in calling them “bridezillas” and yourself a “Christian” is a complete turn-off to any prospective client.  If I were to google your name and this thread comes up in connection with it, I don’t think 1000 positive reviews would compensate for this negative thread and your responses to it.

Agreed with the other ladies. As an FYI, sir, when people post about “Bridezillas” and “Momzillas” or any other type of zilla, especially a vendor, it REALLY turns brides off. Your little smiley face at the end of your post isn’t going to help. I, also, would completely pass you over after seeing this post.

This whole thing was seriously unprofessional.

From your posts Monty, you are very unprofessional and im sorry to say you probably just lost yourself a few potential customers. I agree with Zippy your used of the “zillas” was totally uncalled for. Seven months is absolutely ridiculous to return a check, your copy of the cashiers check doesn’t make up for that. I agree with the ladies above..because of your attitude in your posts and your unprofessional ism I wouldn’t even think about using your services.

Wow Monty – talk about shooting yourself in the foot. Way to look like a totally unprofessional whacko.

Also, how does writing cancellation on a chashier’s check that you commissioned mean that the event was cancelled? I’m pretty sure you can write whatever you want on those. You could’ve written “for wedding interrupted by space aliens” and it would probably make you look less crazy than this thread.

PEACE!

Interesting. So writing that I cancelled on the cashier’s check proves it? You really think I would hesitate to cash that check because you were lying on it? If it was cancelled, then why do I have these emails:

Here’s a copy of the contract:

Monty, you’re lying. Everyone can see that. The more you keep it up, the more you’re hurting yourself. I have plenty more emails promising refunds, should I post all of those?

Oh, and if you notice in that contract, in order to cancel, it would have had to be agreed upon by both parties IN WRITING, at least 24 hours before the event. I’d like to see Monty produce some proof that meets those conditions. He won’t be able to because it doesn’t exist, but I’d like to see him try.

 

It’s also funny that the person associated with my “canceled” wedding was terminated. That makes a lot of sense…

I was the best man at this wedding in question and I can assure you that the wedding was NOT cancelled.  It went on – and for music we were forced to send a few people to Best Buy to purchase a $250 stereo and play all of the music off of various Ipods that were laying around. 

So…I don’t see how the DJ service lying about anything is helping their cause.  There were A LOT of people at that wedding that can account for the missing DJ. 

If I were looking for a DJ service in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area – I would steer clear of Texas Affairs to Remember Mobile DJ Service – unless of course you have a backup plan ready for them not showing up to work on your wedding day.

WOW. Just wow. Very unprofessional responses so far by the vendor. He seems a wee bit ignorant about how much the internet and wedding planning (or…any topic, really) are tied together. I wonder how Monty thinks people find and research wedding vendors nowadays. It sure isn’t by using the yellow pages.

Luckily, the “advent of the internet” now also returns the various complaints against this business on the first page of a Google search, including this thread. Buyer, beware indeed…
