    Bad, Bad, Bad sign!!!! Find you another coordinator.  If a coordinator does not get right back to you when you say you would like to pay her for the services she will render, that is not professional behavior. My advice to you is to send her a certified letter with the all of the things which have transpired letting her know that because of her actions, you do not feel comfortable and that you will be seeking someone else’s services.  Make sure you send some kind of certified mailing system.  Good luck and I wish you were in the Illinois area.

    I argee 100%. The coordinator I have hired is so professional, she actually gave me the choice of mailing the contract and all details to us or she could hand deliver the contract personally, wow now thats service. Of course I chose the mail option and recieved everything in a beautiful folder, it was gorgeous. I would take breathtaking2’s advice. You deserve someone who will ‘work for you’ if your having doubts now how are you going to feel when it gets closer to the wedding and you REALLY need her.

    I think that is a bad sign also.  My day of coordinator e-mails me often and we’re pretty far out from the date still.

    OKay… I’ve worked on my own and I have some limits – like email me on the weekend, Saturday after noon (12 p.m.) and unless its an emergency or immediate, you won’t get an answer till Monday morning. 

    I do it, because I work a round the clock job and sometimes you need 12 hours to yourself unless its urgent. 

    One thing I always respond to – payment. $$$$. Why would she not want your money. Even if she’s being “lazy” – unless she was out of town for a day or so (which she should notify you) – you would think she would want to take your money. 

    It’s bad news. Get rid of her.

    It sounds like bad news to me too, most people pay the most attention during payment and ignore you later so its just sounds off.

    If your worried about the contract check your local laws I know in PA you have 3 days grace period where you can back out of any contract.

    @Evie19: Well said!

    I had a similar issue when I was looking for a wedding coordinator, the company I had contacted seemed reputable and was highly recommended. After several delays and comments of my emails getting stuck in junk-mail I found myself another coordinator. I typically hear back from her within a day or two (and my wedding was for another year when I first hired her).

    @Treejewel19: Yeah wedding planning is stressful enough without feeling like the person who is meant to help you needs to be chased.

    Hmmmm I’m going to agree with all of these comments, just a quick question is this full wedding planning services? The only reason I ask is because I offer a package that is purely month of and while I will be available before hand to answer questions our work REALLY begins 1 month out where I’m basically on call.

    I just don’t get it though–not responding to PAYMENT!? Yikes, just drop this coordinator and get yourself one you can depend on!
