- Wedding: August 2010
We were thinking about getting an ice sculpture for our wedding and proceeded to partner with a vendor recommended by our caterer. After getting some quotes and back and forth email, we decided not to go with it. The ice sculpture company’s reply below:
Thank you for letting us know, even at this juncture.
Ice carvings are not recognized by everyone as to the statement they make about the couple, and that their event / reception is a cut above an ordinary event, wherein flowers, cake, music, etc. are the norm. The events with ice carvings are generally more memorable due to the fact that less people have one.
Your idea was unique to you as a couple and would have made a statement different than most.
Sometimes if money is tight, other couples have asked a friend or family members to pitch in for it as apposed to ? another toaster, and generally the person being asked are happy to oblige as they really didn’t know what to get anyway, and now they also feel a “part of the event”.
Am i being emotional because I just read that email as “that’s too bad, your event is not going to be memorable without this. Oh, and you should just ask someone attending the wedding to pay for it so we can get the sale”
I am so irate right now. The email is so passive aggressive and I feel like she just completely shot down our reception because we won’t have the g-damn ice sculpture!! Ahhhh…
A month to go. Almost there. Almost done with crazy vendors.
