Wow, that’s really strange. I wonder why he was so distracted?

 Good luck with your other vendors! We’re having a small wedding too, slightly fewer than 50 people at the moment. Knock on wood, but so far we’ve had no trouble with the vendors. (Of course, the florist is a friend :-))

I only felt this way with one photographer, who when we told her that we’d probably only need her services for about five hours made a face and said something along the lines of our wedding wasn’t even worth her leaving the house if it was five hours or less! Needless to say we didn’t book her and found another photographer who was willing to work with us and was about $2k cheaper!

Glad it worked out for you in the end!

I have had problems with our caterer and I’ve attributed her lack of responsiveness to the size of our wedding (approx. 45 guests). I have to believe that this is not how she normally runs her business, or else she wouldn’t still be in business! Our wedding’s not a big moneymaker for her, I realize, so she doesn’t want to put a lot of time into it, but there are still things that need to be done no matter what the size of the event… providing a contract, for one thing (we still have no contract 2 months out), ordering rental items (she waited so long that many items we wanted aren’t available), and finalizing the menu so we can send out our invitations. My feeling is, if it was "too small" a job for her, she shouldn’t have accepted it.
