So one of our vendors backed out for “personal reasons” that I will not post online. I understand, but I am still a little miffed, upset and now SUPER stressed. Now I have to do a photographer hunt with only 5 months before the wedding. I had this photog booked over a year ago and now I have to go through this all over again. Not to mention in our area, photogs book up sometimes 2 years in advance.
I just want to cry.

Maybe your photgrapher can recommend someone. WHat did your contract say would happen if they couldn’t make it on the wedding date, who would be their backup? Sorry you are going through this so close to your big day, but atleast you have 5 months yet!

@mwitter80: Yup. I have been on the verge of tears all morning. When I am not almost crying I am e-mailing and calling potential photogs like a mad woman.
We got an extremely good deal on this photog as well so now I am freaking out that we will not be able to afford another one (if there are even any that have our date free).
Someone please talk me off the ledge……

Everything is going to work out!! You might want to post on your local board here or on the Knot for recs as well.

@ieatunicorns: She is a one woman business. She gave me some back up names but now I have to call them to see if the date is open and see if their price is comparable.
In the contract it says that she will provide a back up in case of an immediate emergency. I guess this doesn’t constitute as “immediate” so now I am kinda on my own.

I just booked my photog the other day for my Sept wedding and LOTS and LOTS of photogs were availible. In fact, only one person did not have our date. Don’t worry about it. You will be fine

@Legallyblondiebride: I planned my whole wedding in barely over three months and was able to find all of the appropriate vendors even within our tight budget! Don’t worry, you’ll be fine. Just take a deep breath and carry on. Chin up lady 🙂

That sounds very stressful, but we just booked our photographer for our June wedding very recently! You WILL find someone, and hopefully the price will be at least close to what you already had. That does suck…..but good luck!

@Legallyblondiebride: Sorry that she couldn’t be more helpful. Good luck in your search, I am sure you will find someone great!

I started planning a week ago and found not just one, but TWO photographers that would work for us, also in an area where people are hard to come by. It’s stressful, but it could have been much, much worse.

I’m sorry this is happening, but you’ll get through it, it’ll be okay! Our officiant cancelled a WEEK before our wedding while I was at work and I nearly had a meltdown. I would explain your plight to the other photographers when you contact them, I’m sure they’ll be sympathetic and do their best to help. Do you have a coordinator or wedding planner? Even though mine was technically only a day of coordinator she was still very helpful in helping me find a new one.

oh…we are getting married in june and dont have a photog booked yet….lots of places i have contacted still have june dates open.
You will seriously be fine. Can you extend the search to a city or two outside of where you are? Just do a wider search and you will find someone. Promise!
I’m sorry you are going through this!! 🙁 I would be really upset too if a vendor backed out after I had them booked.
