- Wedding: August 2009
I haven’t been around for a while, but I don’t really know where to take this… I had a lot of drama with our caterer before the wedding which you can read about here:
When our DOC pulled out 2 months before the wedding, we were on the fence about replacing her until the caterer went crazy (details in that thread), at which point we decided we needed a pro managing the caterer (and various other details, too, but the caterer is really what did it.) Our DOC turned out to really be kind of a disaster – she didn’t properly learn the details of our wedding, she was pushy and bossy and loud and rude. She messed up her schedule and didn’t have time to change into professional attire between the set-up and the event. Not so good. She never learned the best man’s face and asked him during clean-up whether he was venue staff. But that’s another post.
The catering itself was fine – nothing special, certainly not as good as our tasting. The caterer who we’d argued with repeatedly came to the head table to “check in” even though she had been told by my husband, the venue staff, and the DOC not to interact with me, but even that couldn’t ruin my day.
Up to this day, when I think about her, I still get so angry that I become physically shaky. Today, I got an email from her with the subject line “Thank you”. Here’s the email:
