Yup, it’s annoying but it helps weed out the people you don’t want to work with.  It’s just rude that people waste your time or don’t bother getting back to you.  I had several caterers that couldn’t be bothered to get me a quote.

not all vendors i contacted got back to me in a reasonable amount of time.

but every vendor that i signed with has gotten back to me within a day for every email i have sent.

It’s not just you.  I actually just ran into an issue with my hair/makeup.  Due to scheduling conflicts, our engagement shoot had to be done on a Sunday (this Sunday coming up actually).  I called my normal stylist to see if she would be willing to work on a Sunday, do my hair and makeup as a mini-trial for the wedding.  I called over a month in advance, and made it very clear that if this goes well, I’d like to hire her for the wedding to do my hair/makeup, and likely for the bridesmaids, MOB and MOG.  Oh, and I was more than willing to pay whatever she asked.  The answer was a resounding no.  I ended up calling multiple salons, all with the same answer.  Which really concerned me about making any special requests for the wedding.  Seriously, if you won’t take $400 for an hour and a half of work, what the hell is wrong with you? 

Eventually, I found a place that was not only good with Sunday hours, they gave me the # and email of their wedding coordinator, they’re able to have multiple stylists come out to the hotel the morning of the wedding, whatever I need. 

It’s a great way to weed out crappy vendors though.  I never thought I’d have a problem with people refusing to take my money.

I didn’t hire any vendor that was unresponsive or took too much time to get back to me.  I want people who want to work with me… I am not begging them for their service I am paying them so they should at leat act interested.
