Yea, she sounds like a pill. Politer wording would have gotten her point across just fine! We had a situation like that with our original caterer. Definitely better to drop it–esp if the other baker is less pricey.

Since she’s a family friend, I would be careful because you don’t want your Future Father-In-Law to be angry at you for any reason. Maybe just tell her that you’ve decided to go with a new vision and you will be looking at another option. If you don’t want to lose the deposit, maybe try to work something out with her.

I’d rather lose $150 than continue trying to work with someone who is disrespectful and unaccommodating. Tell her that you’ve decided to go with someone else.

Agreed. It doesn’t matter how much $ you’re going to lose by dropping her now. You’ll be MUCH happier in the long run. There’s no reason you shouldn’t feel comfortable with your vendors. They seem to forget that there are plenty of other vendors just like them who are ready to take you on as a client. The vendor should prove themselves to you, not think that they’re too good for you.

Drop her! It sounds like she’s treating you differently than she would another customer because she knows your Future Father-In-Law and she’s giving you a hook-up. Either that or she just has an attitude. Either way, I don’t believe in giving money to someone who doesn’t respect your business (for whatever reason).

I agree with dropping her. It sucks to loose money when planning a wedding, but you’ll thank yourself later when you don’t have to deal with her drama anymore. Go to your second choice vendor where they are willing to work with you to give you what you want.

i’m with @Miss Tattoo: that you should tread carefully because this is a family friend etc. I am thinking she make be a bit irritated that she had to cut down her delivery costs.. Of course this doesnt excuse her abruptness..

She sounds like she is talking down to you as if you were a child. That is one of my biggest pet peeves and I was getting upset just reading that!

Seriously, it’s not worth the hassle. Her attitude is very abrasive and I would not want to deal with that on my wedding day. Tread lightly as PP’s have said but drop her and move on. If you don’t like direct confrontation you could always tell her something like “Someone has decided to buy/make the cupcakes as a wedding gift and I can’t turn them down.” Of course you should tell Future Father-In-Law first and foremost to see what his opinion is since it is his friend.

Good decision. I wouldn’t waste 2 more seconds of your time on this person.

@Amber.Austin: First of all, sorry she talked to you like that, as it was completely unecessary. Also, I am glad you have decided to go with a different vendor. Not to defend her in any way, but often businesses like bakeries deal with customers that flake, change their mind a thousand times, and request free tastings, then never order anything. She has no right to talk to you like that whatsoever, but she sounds frustrated at the situation. As a cake maker, it can get very overwhelming when brides change their minds often, especially if you’ve already ordered product. I really hope the other baker will make you beautiful, delicious cupcakes, and be super nice!
