how much would you be losing if you fired her? can you afford that in your budget?

will you be going it alone ro would you hire a replacement?

perhaps, so you don’t lose money, she could be your director instead of planner. that way the money you have paid is going toward something and not a waste…

$1000 might be a reputable day-of coordinator, but not a full wedding planner. Either she’s giving you a deal because she’s new and really wants the experience or she’s giving you a deal because she didn’t know any better and got in over her head.

I just had to decline an event yesterday…my very first time doing that…and it was tough. But I knew it was more than I was capable of at the moment. Sounds like she should have done the same thing.

What does the contract cover?  As Angel mentioned, $1000 sounds like a fairly low rate for a full-on planner.  Perhaps she thinks she’s more of a director/coordinator hence the disconnect between your expectations and the services delivered?  Alternately, perhaps she’s too new to know what to do/how to handle or has taken on too many clients.
