Is she saying she only responds to emails Monday through Wednesday?

Here’s my take and this is as a former corporate event manager (not wedding planner and not bride) but that does seem a bit weird that she’s basically saying she’s only available Tuesday and Wednesday to work on your wedding? I’d find out how long she expects to work like this. You may find that you can get quite a lot done working this way (as long as you are available Tuesday and Wednesday) but it seems a bit unfair considering my understanding is that wedding planners are VERY expensive. If her communication and availability was discussed before and this wasn’t brought up I don’t blame you for being concerned. I wouldn’t just let it go because this is when people will test you. I’d be really nice and as understanding as you’re willing to be because you know your own limits but remember this will set the tone for your entire relationship with this woman who’s planning your wedding. I’d say you need to find out more info from her. as long as the 2 day a week thing drops off about 2 months before you should be fine (you’d be shocked how much can be achieved in those 2 days) OR the other option would be to talk to her about trying it out that way for a few weeks and if it’s not comfortable for you she has to be willing to change something. Those are my suggestions. Any questions you have as far as planning and how it works I’m happy to answer.

Ok so with Thursday (I thought that was a pre-wedding day) that’s 3 days. Personally I would have sent a client a hey got your email I’m swamped with x events and I’ll email you on Tuesday but maybe she feels it’s redundant because of her welcome email (personally I think it puts people more at ease and is more personal and takes all of 2 minutes to ease a mind so why not but not everyone works that way).

Monday I’m guessing is definitely her day off, my rule was usually the same I had at least one day (2 if I could swing it) after a big event.

Like I said I’d just talk to her about your concerns because what you let happen now will set the tone of the relationship and YOU need to find a comfort level with that. If it were me I’d suggest addressing it in a way that you’re willing to try it her way (if of course you’d be willing to) but maybe bringing up the fact that you did ask about communication and it wasn’t brought up etc. Understanding but firm, that’s what I’d do.
