Oh that is gorgeous.

I’m sorry they misinterpreted you. You’ve NEVER came across like that to me at all! I don’t know what they want in a vendor, but be thankful you don’t have to work with  them now! All your good work will shine through with your other clients.

And overpriced isn’t your motto. You know that. They are missing out!

it sounds like you have a good business on your hands.. sometimes it’s also about the business choosing their clients as well as the clients choosing their vendors. It looks like you just found one that was not compatible with you. I’d appreciate the options and frank answers, personally. It’s nice to see options that are tailored. It doesn’t sound like you’re innundating them with extras, just ranges of things.  i’ll attach something pretty, too.

Hey there- I’m sorry you’re having a bad day.  I get it because I’m a small business owner too.  I also understand because my Dad once owned a wedding venue. We got all kinds of rude comments and most of the time it was from people we considered friends.  I think partly because they think they should be entitled to a discount or special treatment or something.  Who knows.  At the same time though, we had tons more great comments and referrals from strangers.  I’m sure that you have the same.  Hang in there…

There will always be some crappy people to talk crap about yoru business. IT WILL HAPPEN. My dad owned his own business and it’s a constant battle of not being able to please EVERYONE. But the people you do make happy? They will LOVE you for what you do.

@cre – yes – sometimes a little more makes a huge difference. As the designer, it’s your job to search on their behalf and keep those things in mind. A lot of people really look at the bottom line without considering what they’re getting – service and experience. I’m a designer myself and find that too. When doing decorating, I had someone completely rip off my design b/c she said she could get it cheaper at Home Depot. Sure, of course you can.. but I spent a long time looking through a zillion samples to find you the Perfect Everything. Sigh. I’m here for ya lady!

Crebre I wouldnt get too down about it…sometimes people just suck 😉 But really,..we all love you on here and have never thought anything bad of you at all…its just going to happen…especially in a business like yours…that not everyone is going to appreciate your method of doing things…like you said…they just want to hear what they want to hear. So i wouldnt worry about it too much…think of all the people that have said that they loved you…im sure that they WAAAAAAAAAAY outweighed the 3 that said they didnt.

Oh grass! how cool! I like it. Very earthy and natural.

And yeah i was thinking maybe they wanted a vendor to kiss their ass….my dad is like that sometimes and likes to feel like the “man in charge” and maybe THAT is what that client wanted. Some people get off on that crap and being clambored over by vendors.

Backlash blows though…cuz you know your heart is in the right place.

COME ON – – enough already – – are you serious – – pick your head up, don’t be sad and yes like EJ said, be thankful you aren’t working with those prospects. I mean if thats what they’re saying about you now imagine what working with them would be like. 

Owning your own business is tough – you’re definitely going to have some haters, stay focused and remember w/ every hater comes 2+ more clients.  It’s a dog eat dog world out there and especially at the moment due to the economy.  Now you know you aren’t over priced, come on!!!!

So when you hear that hearsay close your eyes kick’em in the junk open your eyes move on and stay proud! Proud of your company, of your services, your final product, and most of all your prices…..

EDIT = you should be the one determining your clients if thats the way they act. Heck we were interviewed by both our photographer & florist….Yup thats right!!!!

I think you just have to realize that different people have different styles – these people may not be good clients for you, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t loads of people out there who find your style perfect for them!  Being in a business means you get exposed to all types of clients, and some of them are just not going to be right for you, but you can’t take everything they say to heart.
