Hello bees! So we are 6 months and some days away from the wedding, who wouldn’t be counting?! And just when I thought everything was going great and all we had to do was pay everything, the baker decided to surprise us.
He failed to be ready twice in one week with our tasting samples. We already hired him because he is a very trusted baker and we had already sampled one flavor that we liked. He is in the process of closing shop and my fiance is afraid that something may come up at the wedding and we won’t be able to find him since he won’t have a business behind his name, so to speak.
I hate disappointing people, but this is a must. How would I go about firing him?

check your contract for the penalties first. Then tell him that due to his business closing and the difficulty he’s had meeting deadlines you can not risk your wedding cake and have decided to pursue other options.
Explain you understand the cancellation details and that you will forfit your deposit and you wish him the best with new endevours.

Thank you for your advice. THe weird thing is we didn’t sign a contract, I just got a receipt for my deposit. I hope he gives me the deposit back. Thank you.

@Future-Mrs.C: Did you get anything in writing? Emails where he promised x by x date? Anything like that?

@paperwhite: no I didn’t, just a receipt. I didn’t leave much of a deposit ($40) but when we’re paying for a wedding, every little bit counts. I hope he returns it without a problem.
