I’d start looking at other MUAs and see if you can set up a trial within the time frame you want. Have you already given her a deposit?

Will you lose money if you let her go?

If not, I would find someone else. The fact that she disregarded your wishes is not okay. It’s one thing to take your suggestions and do something a little bit different but still in the same vein (eg, smokey eyes with browns instead of grays)  to see if you like it, and another to just go in a completely different direction without your approval.

I don’t think it’s worth the headache to try to salvage this. In her words, you have “so much time” – to find a new MUA 🙂 

Best of luck!

kikilo:  I’d look into a different MUA. One that does more weddings than pagents. Sounds like you’re not a priority of hers, and that would really worry me, especially on my wedding day.

kikilo:  I’d look for someone else. Even if it means losing a deposit. I had a similar situation with our DJ. Not answering emails, etc. It began to make me feel uncomfortable about booking it. It was a little more awkward in my situation because my husband was acqaintences with him and he’s friends with a cousin in law. After an awkward conversation, we parted ways and I couldn’t be more thankful that I trusted me gut and went with someone else. 

It’s just business, not personal and it’s not worth risking your feelings about your appearance on your wedding day.

Sounds like she’s not a good fit for you- I would try to find someone else.
