Definitely post reviews – warn future brides of her.  Someone who is a DOC should NOT be freaking out over anything, they are the ones who need to keep calm.  How terribly rude that she was posting negative things about her client/client’s family.  Sorry you had this experience 🙁

Definitely post reviews – sounds like other brides should be warned about her craziness. Hopefully she has already left the business, but if not…

Not stupid at all. That is what reviews are for! Get to writing!

Wow. She sounds like she is in the wrong profession. I would never hire a vendor who said horrible things about a client online, so she is probably digging her own grave there. Unless you could write an anonymous review and leave out identifiable details, she sounds like the type of person to react dramatically to a bad review. So I’m not sure it would be worth it. Of course, I understand you wanting to warn other brides, but perhaps you could just let your message spread by word of mouth. I’m sure other vendors associated with your wedding noted how terrible she was and that can’t be good for her business either. 

Just curious, did you sense that she was crazy at all in your contact with her before the wedding? Or was this a complete shock! I only ask because my DOC seems awesome so far and I’d be so upset if she went nuts at the wedding.

@greenviolets:  Unless the photographer gave her permission/a licence to use that picture on her site, I think that is essentially copyright infringement. Of course, even if she does have permission, you may be able to ask the photographer to revoke it given your bad experiences.

It does sound like she might cause some drama and perhaps cause you more trouble if you write negative reviews, but I still think it is worth it if you can spare other brides the horrible experience you had with her. Just make sure that you are very factual about what you say in the reviews. Hyperbole might get you in trouble but if you say exactly what happened and how you felt about it (eg. “She told our bridal party to turn up 3 hours early, she did not follow my wishes in X and Y, and I felt she ended up making my wedding day more stressful for me rather than less.”) rather than writing something like “she is a terrible, incompetent person and she deserves to goes out of business!!!” then she really can’t go after you for libel. Essentially, if it is a true recounting of events and how you saw them rather than speculation or insults then there’s not much she can do about it legally.
