Find someone else who is not rude to you!

They are there for you, not you for them. Their business is you. And if they can’t treat you with at least a slight amount of proper customer service, I wouldn’t recommend their services.

I agree with you, I don’t get paid for my commute time, and neither should they. I would find someone else.

Um no…unless they are travelling a long distance to get to your wedding, a travel fee is not justifiable IMO.  In researching vendors for our wedding, most of them had in their contracts that any distance over X number of miles would require like a $25 additional fee or something.  If you’re able to do so, I would look for someone else and when you find them, go back to these hot shots and tell them that you were really hoping that you could work something out but that their incredibly rude response was a total turn off and that you have found someone else who better fits your needs.  Call them out on it!  You don’t want to feel tension and stress from your vendors – especially the one responsible for making your hair look good!

I would politely remind them they are a service, and are replaceable. 🙂

If that’s how they respond to a simple question, I would seriously question working with them.

Ok. Devils advocate now: was the email rude or maybe just worded in a way that could be interpreted as rude depending on what tone you read it? I only say this because its easy to misread tone through email.

And I found travel fees to be the norm in MA for makeup and hair people.

@KaleighMarie:  Yikes! Just curious what is their travel free?and how far are they traveling?

I agree with you thou…..now need for them to be rude to you. If you feel uncomfortable with how they treated you then you have plenty of time maybe find someone else!

@KaleighMarie:  On site service providers charge for travel and that’s fair.  Yes, you’re paying for their services but you’re also paying for them to come to you instead of you having to travel to them. 

While I totally understand trying to work within a budget and negotiating, I can also understand service providers getting annoyed when asked to reduce their pay to accommodate someone else’s budget.  They’re working to earn a paycheck – not to make everybody’s dream wedding happen, you know? 

That said, there’s no reason to be rude.

@KaleighMarie:  Wow 250.00 is a lot but they are driving quite a bit. Just curious could you find someone closer or are you set on having them?

If they work together it’s fair to expect they’ll travel together and charge one fee. I’d look elsewhere.

@KaleighMarie:  $250?? What!  That is absurd!
