You were right to contact her. Obviously the two of you had a breakdown in communications if you thought you would be getting an invitation.

You did have the date written at the top of your contract though, so the best thing to do is humbly apologize. If you accept some responsibility, (even if she shouldhave sent the invitation) she is more likely to help arrange an alternative date.

@SweetRose2011: don’t stress about it too much. I’m sure they will offer you another date.

Don’t stress yet. Most vendors will want to keep you happy and be sure your wedding goes how you want it to, so she will in all likelihood allow you to reschedule.

They should be able to host you – even if you missed the date.  I would explain when you talk to her that you were waiting for your invite and didnt notice until you went to double check your address the date on top.

Many places will do additional tastings or rescheduled ones for a small fee if they don’t want to keep offering complimentary ones.

If it seems like they aren’t accommodating you – just say you can’t really choose your menu upgrades without trying the menu… a glimmer of some upsell will go a long way with them, even if you don’t intend on adding anything 🙂  Just how us wedding sales people work!

Good luck!
