    Who of your family are you afraid will be offended? What is the liklihood that person would even know?  I’m sure you might be thinking of your grandparents or someone similar — will they really even know the name of your planner?  If it was someone like a band or photographer that will be there and people will want to know their name – I would understand. If someone asks you specificlaly for your planner you can tell them, "Her name is Sally Smith — she works for a great company with a silly name — Bitch, Please! Weddings"  I think it’s fine. Go for it if you like the planner.

    Little iffy for me.  But if they do a good job then don’t worry about it.  Who has to really know anyway?!

    Its not a very professional name so that makes me wonder what other unprofessional aspects there are in the business. I won’t never hire someone with that name, and its not that the word bitch offends me, it just has no place being in a business’s name.

    Have you mentioned this to your coordinator?  Perhaps he could just write a check to her: Sally Smith

    I don’t think I’d hire a coordinator with that name, but on the grounds that I think they’d have a hard time networking with other vedors (which is pretty much their job).  Who wants to say they’re booking a florist gig with that vendor???  Plus my rule is if I wouldn’t put it on my Wedding Announcement website, then I wouldn’t book.

    It’s quite an unconventional name!  Your solution to the check writing is great… I’d be concerned about professionalism, but if her reputation is good, there is no reason to judge her based on name!

    I agree with the other girls- have your dad write the check to the planner with her name, not the business name if you think he’ll be offended. If she does good work, go for it!

    Side story: my sister worked for a media company for a while called Brand Pimps and Media Whores. My mother wasn’t a huge fan, needless to say!

    agree with OPs.  I wouldn’t worry about ppl being offended but I would be worried about having wedding planner who thinks that name is professional.  This is the person in charge of running the show, and that kind of name wouldn’t be reflective of the kind of person I would personally want to put in charge of my day.

    I think the name probably just reflects the particular style of the wedding planner. I would guess that they would be a lot of fun, more open to unique ideas or crazy parties than a very formal or uber-traditional event. So if the wedding planner works for you, and they work on events that are similar in style to what you want, then I would go for it.

    Maybe someone should let them know that they’re potentially losing a lot of business over their name! I’d want to know if it was turning away business, that’s for sure.

    hahaha that’s hilarious and i’d be tempted to use them just because of their creativity and ability to step outside the box. if you really like them, go with them! try not to worry about the name. but, if you have concerns about their professionalism ASIDE from the name, then i’d say in that case don’t do it. I am, however, still laughing…
