Oh man! I would show up to the bridal show and put her on the spot! I would probably stand next to her all day and tell brides not to even waste their time. Or maybe stop each bride after they visit her to tell them to just throw the info away.

I would make her internet life a living hell until a deposit was returned to me.

@Miss Tattoo:  You & I may just be siblings… because I would do the same thing! 

 

@FutureMrs.M:  If you are planning to discourage folks from using her, make sure you have your signed contract in hand.  That way you have proof that corresponds with your story.

And you definetly should contact the promoter of the show, and show them all your paperwork.  I am sure they will ask her about the situation and possible even ask her not to promote at the show.

 

Good luck!

@Miss Tattoo: THIS!

I’m a spiteful bitch so I would do everything humanly possible to make sure that she pays for what she’s done. Like Tattoo said, I would set up camp right infront of her table and hand out flyers with my story on it. Good luck booking any clients after that you wench!

Thanks for letting me know! I’m doing a wedding in Atlanta and this type of info is helpful. It’s also good to let the bridal show know too.

I agree. I would go to the bridal show and stand right by her table and let people know what they are getting into. Wow people are so shady and getting more creative, kinda scary to think about.

OMG…can’t believe how many no-show vendors are out there these days. What  is their excuse? With the economy the way it is these days and they are still behaving badly?

Sad to hear this honey, and thanks for the update…Smile

I read the post regarding Heather being a no-show.  I don’t know what the situation was with you, but I do know that Heather was referred to me with very high recommendations for an over-the-top event we held in Atlanta (August, 2011).  I was from another State, didn’t know much about Heather personally, but I was quite impressed with her professionalism and she was straight forward in all dicussions.  She showed up as scheduled, returned calls promptly and the candy buffet was beautifully displayed.  Everyone attending the event was quite impressed with her work.   Heather exceeded our expectations and we definitely plan on utilizing her services in the future and will also give her great recommendations.

Oh wow. I wouldn’t want to be the bride that booked her! I would definitely do anything I could to prevent other brides from being screwed over. 🙁 Sorry you have to deal with this lady!

@TheLionQueen: I had no problems with Heather and perhaps others wn’t either.  Your incidence may have been an isolated one.

@vhacavweary: that’s possible. But when a vendor messes up like this even once, it’s pretty hard to trust them for any other wedding. There is no room for mess ups on the most important day of a girl’s life! I’m glad you had a good experience, we all understand it and are happy for you. We appreciate your feedback. But, this post is about the OP trying to vent and explain an issue she had with a vendor. Just because you did not have the issue does not make it okay to invalidate her problem. This is her post, so no postjacking! 🙂 Thanks dear!
