Is there anybody out there? I feel like we need to start jumping up and down and screaming. The end of one more month is upon us and after the labord day weekend there will be just 3 short months until our big month. How is everyone doing? ANy new developments? I want to hear how things are going, see pics, hear some panicking, something. Anything to know I am not the only one out here.

I know! I am really excited but also starting to feel the pressure and a little stress coming on. I’ve tried to stay on top of things, planning as far in advance as I can. Most of my stress is coming from the coordinator at my venue. It’s a big hotel that does tons of meetings and events but I would say maybe 10 weddins a year. The coordinator was super sweet and cool when we met her but after we signed the contract she kind of became MIA. It literally takes her 2-3 weeks plus to return my emails and she never answers the phone. She always tells me to RELAX, um, how can I relax when you never answer my questions!!!! Hard to be ahead when you can’t find out answers.
It got so bad my fiance and I went in for a surprise visit to complain. You should have seen look on her face. She promised she would be better at getting back, that lasted like 3 weeks and now back to the 3+ week repsonses and, best of all, she responded and didn’t really answer the questions!!! AHHH. I hired a DOC, she was super sweet on phone and had great reviews and has been really helpful with stuff along the way, doing more than a normal DOC i think. But she was really really flakey when we walked through the venue with her. I am hoping she was just having a bad day. We tried to avoid filing a complaint with upper management bc I worried she would try to ruin our wedding. My fiance thinks it’s time to threaten her with a complaint, all I want is a freakin answer to my questions, is a week too much to ask???
Sorry for the rant,had to get it off my chest!!!! Aside from that, working on figuring out what to wear for our engagement pics, taking them 10/29. Crazy how fast everything is happenign now! Shower is at end of Oct I think!
How is everyone else?

@MrsOrange: October will be a gorgeous time for a shower. Maybe a fall/autumn theme, my fave season. That would stress me out too, not having her respond ever. Is there anyone else in the department or at your venue you can speak with about your concerns. Maybe if you spoke to someone superior to her, they could be discreet with her about where the compaint came from. Just a thought. The entire reason you have people like that on your wedding brigade is to help take some of the pressure and stress off you, not to make more. I would be upset too. I hope things turn around and I am sure everything will turn out beautifully.
