I think you should write an honest reveiw. Keep it to just the facts and write about what he did right and also what he did wrong. Other brides will appreciate your honesty.

Definitely write an honest review.  You wouldn’t want other brides to go through what you did.  And besides – what do you care if he does write back something nasty?  That’s his issue, not yours.  And it just provides examples to other could-be customers of his crappy attitude.

In RE: to your first post- I agree that he was completely rude. There is no reason for him to be taking tones. Emails can easily be taken in the wrong tone, so as a professional, he should be aware of how he’s typing messages to his clients.

I would most certainly write a negative review about this man. If he’s done so many weddings, maybe he would be more careful and considerate. Or perhaps he should not be doing so many, as he’s obviously lost his touch with the real reason and feeling behind these ceremonies.

I’m sorry for your experience 🙁 I appreciate your honesty and sharing the details. Personally, I’m a bit hot-headed, so I would’ve ripped him a new one on various review sites if he had that kind of impact on my wedding day. 

He sounds ridiculous and completely out of line. You’re paying HIM, so he’s not doing you any favors by being there. He had a job to do and he did it poorly.

Review it up!

@emma5w I agree with you! If he has the audacity to snap back on message boards and your review- it further shows his disrespect for his own clients.

No one should be exempt from consequences for bad behavior, especially vendors.

Wow, totally write the review. I got mad when the limo driver asked ME if he could leave, I just don’t think vendors should talk logistics with the bride on the wedding day.

Oh my gosh, this is so awful! You really need to write a review on him to spare other brides some un-needed stress on their big day

Wow, I feel like I hired his mother! She was 45 minutes late, blamed me, questioned our marriage, and told us we were going to hell. To top it all off, she said she gave us a deal because we had lost our Moose (our baby). When we figured things out about price and not being at the rehearsal, she didn’t even know about Moose. So now to what I’m doing: giving an honest review. She had all positive reviews when i hired her. The day after the wedding, she changed her vendor name on wedding wire I guess in hopes that I couldn’t find her to review her. I did and I really want to do more like write the places she has certifications through, but my husband told me I can’t do that.

I think you should write the review!  And pre-empt his response to it based on his response to other brides.  Something like “Even though he was completely unprofessional and stressed out my entire family, inlaws, bridal party, and myself, I decided that I will not take HIS negativity with me into my marriage.  We have all moved on without giving him a second thought, but isn’t it a shame that we can’t all look back at my wedding and say what a nice person we had to work with?  Instead we’ll be trying to forget he was there at all.”

Write the honest review. Other couples need to know exactly what he’s like!

I agree with the previous posters. Make it factual not subjective. How can he argue with the facts? I think your post above is pretty perfect for a review. What is the worst he could do to you? Curse your marriage? As if.

Wow, I’m sorry I gave him even alittle benefit of the doubt in your last post, this is unacceptable behavior from someone you have hired and are paying for a service. I agree that you should write an honest review. This is the kind of thing I would want to know about a vendor before booking (or not booking, in this case).
