- Wedding: July 2011
It seems like everyone needs to be walking on eggshells around me lately. There’s a lot to do and not much time to do it, so when vendors don’t get back to me right away, I get soooo frustrated!
I had issues trying to find a hair/makeup girl for the day of. Not too expensive, nice portfolio and I eventually came upon one. We had the trial, it was all good, I booked her for the wedding. And then three weeks ago, Bridesmaid or Best Man S tells me she didn’t like what the lady did to her hair (for various reasons) and she didn’t want to get her hair done, and would rather do it herself, which was totally ok with me!
I emailed E (stylist) telling her that one of my bridesmaids has decided not to get her hair professionally done the day of the wedding, and I’d like an updated invoice/bill for the remaining amount due the day of. (I know I can just subtract 1 bridesmaid $$ from the bill I have) I wanted an official bill, so in case she decided to pull a fast one on me, I have backup. (I am SO not trusting!)
No response….five days later, I FWD it to her (2nd attempt at contact)
no response….FOUR days later, I FWD it to her again (3rd attempt)
Finally, I got fed up with trying to email, that I posted on her business’s facebook wall asking her to please get back to me on my email asap (since my wedding is less than 4 weeks away!)
No response, and this was yesterday. So three weeks (just about) and she has not given any response to my needs.
I don’t imagine it could be computer error in receiving the email, because we have never had any issues with not receiving each other’s emails as of yet, and I went on facebook to see if it was the case!
I feel like this is a case of “I already booked you and took a deposit, so why do I need to help you now?” I know that she may be busy/family/etc but three weeks and not checking email? I would expect a little “I’m swamped, but I will get back to you by such and such date”
Maybe I’m asking too much? I don’t feel like I can trust her to even show up the day of! (not to mention she was 45 min late to the trial!)
I’m at my wits end, and I really just want to cancel with her and get it done at a salon for peace of mind! What do I do?
