That’s sweet that you don’t want to hurt her business, however I would suggest writing honest reviews.  Other brides and I are counting on good and bad honest reviews so we can make a decisions.  You might be hurting her business, but you might also be saving another bride from a lot of headache.

I would also email her feedback (both positive and negative) so she has the opportunity to improve herself.

Not everyone is cut out to do EVERY job. And it sounds like she’s doing a pretty poor one. Yeah, you don’t want to ruin her new business but why should anyone have to deal with that behavior and lack of professionalism. Also, if you don’t tell her what is wrong she might never know what to correct. Honestly, I’d post the good with the bad and I’d definitely include that long list of complaints.

Wow….from what you wrote, it sounds like she did a whole lot of nothing helpful…Maybe you should e-mail her first and tell her the bullet points you gave us and how it was not what you were expecting? If nothing is resolved there, I would write an honest (but not slandering) review

Be honest in your review, that’s the best you can do

Give honest feedback publically.  Why would you risk another bride hiring her based on the current reviews, when you know them not to be true in your case?  I personally rely heavily on reviews and in turn always give them back honestly.

I would definitely want to know this. And I wouldn’t hire her. And I would THANK you.

Please do.  Future brides need to know about this.

With everything she messed up, I’m curious as to what she actually got right?

It’s really tough to give a negative review when you might have actually liked the person who did the poor job, but I agree that honest feedback is really the best thing you can do for future brides. And certainly give her the feedback in detail directly as well.

@basketballwifetobe:  oh wow!  Then she definitely needs to know.  You basically paid someone to be friendly.  What if the vendors hadn’t been on the ball?

Yeah, I think my blood pressure got higher just from reading this.

I would absolutely give her a “fair” review. Fair being the truth. She dropped the ball not once, not twice, not three times (you get my point).

As a PP said, other brides need to know this.
