Uh…that’s why it’s called a Consultation and not a Booking!  He must be used to people who aren’t polite like you to let him know instead of just dissapearing into the ether.  What a weirdo.

Try Peter at Groove Entertainment!

It is so sad that some vendors have rude sides. Let’s face it: the economy is bad, brides and grooms are looking for a great deal, and most vendors (a TON of DJs) got into the business when the economy was good and didnt have to do much to make a quick buck. I talked to Russ about being a DJ for my event but also decided to go with someone else but never once got a mean/rude email. Let’s hope he just had a slip in judgement and didnt realize that his email was that rude. I did get a good laugh out of the Good "ruck"!

Well, that is a pretty funny story to add to the list of adventures in wedding planning! Did you happen to look for reviews about him online before meeting with him? (I woud defintely leave a review for him somewhere now).

Funny story from our wedding planning. You do caterer tastings before picking a caterer right? We knew what we wanted to serve at our reception. So we made a list of caterers we wanted to try, made an appointment with four of them. We showed up at one caterer who did not make ONE THING on our menu we wanted. For example: we want to serve spanish style food: paella, tapas, salad- then an entree of lamb or steak etc etc. We check with all the caterers who assured us they could make it. Well this one caterer made chicken and steak carnitas- slopped it on a plate in a big pile, and provided chips, salsa and guacomole to dip. Ya. :-/

Be glad you didn’t hire the guy! Talk about unprofessional.

Wow, that’s really weird. We pretty much demand that all of our clients meet with us in person before we’ll accept their booking. And how dare he say that it was a waste of his time! It’s part of the job!!

cva – I am glad you didn’t pick this DJ because his poorly spelled and rude e-mail made me laugh. I hope you and your fiancee were able to laugh about it, too.  And pat yourselves on the back for picking the right DJ!

That is a great post – glad you met with him in person. I make a point out of it, too – just to get a feel of the person you are dealing with. That guy is such an a$$..you should write a bad review on him on Project Wedding. 

We are also using Tim Coy – he’s definitely professional, timely, and very friendly.

I ran into this thread through another about this guy, what a piece of work. 

 I do hope you’re not Asian, otherwise the ‘ruck’ could have been a racial thing…. 🙂

I have run into quite a few rude vendors in the OC area….one photographer told me that I was stupid for having my wedding at night becuse the photos will be ugly, and also that ‘Chinese brides like you’ (I am Japanese, jeez) ‘who don’t ever go in the sun always look washed out’ in pictures.  I wish I could remember his name, to warn others to stay away.

What.the.eff?

That photographer must have been a horrible one!  His snarky comments about being Asian and skin tone!  As well as sayig weddings at night will result in being ugly… he probably doesn’t know the craft very well.  Hardly any lights at night?  bring strobes!

I can’t believe that some vendors even act like that!! Like there are no websites, boards, or forums that brides talk about vendors who are rude and unprofessional, like the word wont get around!! They’re the dumb ones really!
