First I would recommend reading the contract over – look at every detail, loop holes etc…

What does her services include in the contract?  Does it state that she guarantee vender discounts?  Does she guarantee that the customer will be happy and if she isn’t that efforts will be make to maker her happy?  What is the payment part of the contract say?

After reading that over, you should have a better idea if you can get away without paying the remaining fee.  Or depending on the contract, maybe she can get some of the money back..

If the planner breaks or tries to break the terms of the contract you can contact the BBB.

Most contracts are made by the planners to protect them selfs from clients who render services and then refuse to pay or use their services for part of the planning and then try to terminate the contract.  But it all depends on the contract…

If worst came to worst and she has to pay the remaining fee she could just keep using the planner – she might as well use what she paid for — even if the planner is not worth it.

I would definitely go through the contract first.  It sounds like she has a lot of broken promises but technically, she is doing her job by setting up meetings with vendors, getting her info, etc even though its not in her budget.  But I know from other planners, whether you cancel right before the wedding or not, they do require payment in full if its in the contract because they have done the work and possibly turned down other business.  But double check the contract!!!
