So I know you can’t provide a review about a vendor until after your wedding date but sometimes you can have an unpleasant experience trying to hire a vendor.
Today my fiance and I had an appointment with a wedding coordinator. After our appointment I would NOT recommend her to anyone.
We had an appointment for 10 am and arrived 10 minutes early. There is a small consultation room and a small display area. When we arrived a woman and client were in the consultation room. At 7 min after 10 a woman with a baby came in and stated that Nada had called her and was running late but was just around the corner. At 10:15 Nada showed up looking unprofessional. She stated that the consult in the room was running late so we would just need to find chairs and talk in their display area. Then proceeded to assist the woman with the baby. My fiance was unhappy with the Nada being 15 minutes late. She asked if he was and he said Yes, if you can’t be on time for an appointment or call us to tell us you are running late, then how do we know you will be on time for the wedding. She told him she was no longer interested in working with us. It is critical that someone who is hired to coordinate your wedding is organized and on time neither of them are.
I would not recommend RSVP Weddings or The Wedding Gallery to anyone.

Sorry to hear you had to waste your time. Glad, though, that you had this experience before going any further! You will find a much better WC now 🙂 Good luck!

Dear god, she’s a wedding coordinator and she can’t be on time? Geez…I feel sorry for whatever clients she’s managed to get before.
Our wedding planner was always way early and would have everything for each meeting sorted out well before we got there. Venue events manager was suddenly unavailable for the meeting? She’d tracked down her second in command before we walked in the door. She had printed itineraries for every meeting and took copious notes.
I can’t even fathom a coordinator who would bungle a first meeting so badly and then treat you like you were the ones with the problem!

I had a similar experience while looking for venues! The coordinator of one place we looked at was speaking with another bride and completely ignored us for the first twenty minutes while we were made to wait – even though we were sitting fifteen feet from her. I would NEVER go with a person like that. Seriously, people, professionalism is key!
I’m glad you found out now rather than later!

@GreenEyedMoon: I also had an experience with the coordinators at one of the venues we made a reservation to look at. The place was lovely, and they were nice, but they took a walk-in before us, and we ended up waiting for an hour. The cost was also double what I was expecting for the location/packages, so we decided not to go with them.

That is terrible! She didn’t even try to make it up to you guys? Just decided she didn’t want to work with you? Her loss!
