    I’m not married yet, but the guy I hired to do my hair was AWFUL. It was 100 euros for the trial and day of, and I paid upfront. During the trial he did not follow the picture whatsoever and the overall style was extremely messy. I gave him another shot (mostly because he is the only hairdresser in this small town), and after talking him through everything my hair still ended up like a bad 80’s prom movie. Visually flustered, he told me he wasn’t used to doing wedding hair, and gave me a book of updo’s he could do – a book that he probably bought back in the 80’s. I wasn’t about to change my hair to accomodate him, so I left (literally walked out in the pouring rain). I asked how much he was charging, and he agreed that he wouldn’t charge me for the day as he couldn’t get the (very simple) picture. I found another hair dresser (hoping the trial goes better!) and called the first one today to cancell for myself and my bridal party. He tried to convince me that I owed him money from the last time, even though I paid him 100 euros for a horrible job on my hair which took away two weekends (I had to travel up to him for the hair trial). I was on the phone with him telling him that I pretty much already paid for something I wasn’t even going to use for my wedding. The nerve of some people.

    I am getting married in 6 weeks and, overall, I’m kind of dissappointed with the wedding industry. I think my fiance and I are incredibly easy to work with, but we’ve had to be extra careful with who we choose to sign contracts with (even if the vendors had great reviews on review websites). My fiance and I ended up booking mostly elite professionals because the quality of attention and service was incredibly integral to how easy or difficult wedding planning ended up being. We are working with some AMAZING people, but the downside is that everyone has been pretty much super incredibly expensive. :/

    Even the “pros” can make mistakes and not live up to expectations.  My advice is to expect something to go wrong…and if it doesn’t, great.

    Thankfully all my vendors were amazing.  Showed up on time, delivered things on time, did their job well.  i was very lucky.
