Aw, I am so sorry…. I hate Vendorzilla stories…
I would say, keep harassing them… it sucks but your paying them.

Maybe tell them that if you dont have your blue print, contract and the rest of the missing information by a given date… then you will need to take some action.

COuld you try and find someone else… just in case?

Im sorry this is happening… aarg!!! vendors and unprofessionalism… seems to be common today

This is making ME nervous now! Care to send me a PM and let me know the vendors? My daughter’s wedding is in LBI next May and we also have a caterer and rental company working together.

Since you’re not locked into a contract, you might consider looking at other caterers/tent vendors. I understand they’re friends of the family, but sometimes that can end up being the worst, because they might feel like they have a lot more leeway than someone impartial.

What you could do is let them know that you are looking at other vendors because you’re unsatisfied with the service you’re receiving, and at the same time, tell them what you expect if they want to keep your business. Push come to shove, they are a business and should want to keep you as a customer. If they can’t come correct, I would suggest moving on, so as not to further damage the relationship.

I hope everything works out! (Hug!)

Just went through this with our DJ. HE was supposed to send em a copy of our contract and didn’t follow through after several emails and phone calls, he always said he was "too busy". I ended up threatening him with taking him to court and cancelling our contract, that did get him moving somewhat but we ended up firing him. The way we saw it was f he can’t do a simple thing such as send a copy of a contract that he told me he would do, or return e-mails then how can I trust him to show up at our wedding. So now we are looking for another DJ. My suggestion would be to give them a strict timeline, if they failt o meet it then threaten them, in the end it might be best to part ways.

I have heard about this before…. this typically happens when you know the vendor and they feel like they can be more in-formal with you…

I totally understand your stress!!  Have you paid them anything yet?  A deposit?  When is the final count and payment due?  I would tell them that when you pay the final payment you would like a contract stating that you have paid for the services and that they agree to show up and do there jobs… signed by both you and the other two vendors.  

I know they may feel like this is you not trusting them… but just let them know it will take some stress of of you and has nothing to do with a lack of trust… its just business and would make you feel more comfortable.
