- Wedding: May 2014
So I want to contact the hotel and say, Hey! I think I could get you more money and do a 1000x better job, you should hire me.
I am so fed up with my planners.
I am doing a destination wedding and I am trying to plan everything out far far in advance. I have 10 months still and I am ironing out some of the details. Luckily now instead of 1-2 months before because they take FOREVER to respond.
I will email and not get a response for 2-5 days. When I do get a response it goes around my question and does not even answer the question at all.
I asked specifically, can you tell me if the Steel Drum player can play this one song for me to walk down the aisle, and if not, how much would a DJ cost for the 6pm-11pm instead of Steel Drummer 6-8 and DJ 8-11. The response I get back is I now have a singer and guitarist that could do your song. No price quotes or even answering my question.
Then – because the wedding is smaller being a destination, a lot of our family does not drink. They wanted to charge us about $80 per person for open bar. I finally told her no I do NOT want open bar outside of what the package included from 8-11 because that was an extra 8 drinks per person in a 3 hour span that everyone would have to drink to make it worth it. She got rude about that. Now we are talking to more and more people and some of my friends hope to be pregnant and a lot of them do not drink that much, so we are thinking of switching to beer and wine only on consumption for the entire night and they did not respond back with pricing on it, they just responded with what? are you sure you want to do that? why would you do that?
Anyone else had this issue? Did you reach out to the hotel and say, hey, I really want my wedding here, but frankly your wedding planning staff is awful and driving away your customers?
