So, I’m having some vendor issues. Rant rant…
I met with a wedding coordinator months ago. Aside from initially missing out appointment.. She took down our information, we had a big hour long consultation etc. I was set to hire her, and she said she would have a contract to me in a week. I never heard from her.
So this week I go meet with a lady for invitations and printing. We chat for more than 2 hours, plan it all out. She says she’s going to email me over the weekend. I hear nothing.
I have emailed and called several florists, limo companies etc. Literally 1/3 of them ever bother to return calls or emails.
Frankly, I’m starting to get pissed. These people are taking the time to meet with me, leading me to believe we’re going to do buisness, then wasting my time.
I am not demanding about what I want at all.. I’m not haggling with them… in all cases we chatted and got along really well.

@HappySky7: Annoying! Maybe because of the Easter holiday everyone was busy? Personally, I would call everyone that told me they would get back to me right away. You need to either get somewhere with these vendors or cross them off your list! Also, ask the mods to move this thread, it’s showing up in the ring board:) Keep us updated:)

@Birdi: In the case of the invites lady maybe, but the othes were months and weeks ago! Redonkadonk!
I’m not sure how to ask the mods to move it 😐

I had the same issue with venues. This is annoying.

Very annoying but look at the bright side, at least you know they are crappy communicators BEFORE you booked them and gave them a deposit!
Not sure if your wedding date is right but if it is May 2013, it might be (at least for some of them) that they were already booked for that day. Not that they shouldn’t have the courtesy to call you and let you know that, but it might be a reason for it.
I know when I was calling to book some of my vendors at the end of August 2012 for our May 18, 2013 wedding that many vendors were already booked for that day.

@HappySky7: I’ve had the same problem! I emailed several photographers before we found the one that I never got a responce from. Tons of caterers never wrote back. One caterer wrote back and she only replies with one word. Like, yes, sure, ect. So annoying!

I decided that anyone that didn’t respond to an initial inquiry within a week was off my list.
I now have a planner, so she handles that stuff, but yeah, it happens. The ones that you consulted with are actually losing out, they spent their time with you and are now down that time…and time is money.
Are these vendors that have good reviews?? Cause I find that pretty shocking.

When I have made contact and and appointments, they tell me the date is open. Otherwise, I don’t get why they’re meeting with me in the first place. I mean, obviously these people aren’t going to get hired acting this way. But it’s like.. I met with you, I waste a week waiting to hear form you, because you told me you’ll send me a contact this week… and then I’m left hanging. WAT.
These vendors do have spectacular reviews! : I’m wondering if it’s my face or something. Good grief.
