Double seriously. 

I’m trying to rent a tent and it’s almost as if i have to call them at their home, talk to their daughter  and meet them in a back alley or something …

Agreed! I hate the phone and I have a weird schedule that can make it difficult to find a good time to call.

yes, I prefer to do email because then you have a written document in case anything happens or you need to refer back to something

@MrsSl82be: THIS!

Totally understand, it is extremely frustrating and feels unprofessional sometimes!

@UpstateCait:  I feel the SAME way!!  If you don’t have an email address, I’m probably not contacting you.  I hate calling people because I sound 12, and they never take me seriously.

Totally agree.  I hate it even more when you email for information and they respond with, we’ll be happy to help you/answer your questions, just give us a call at …. Seriously?  That’s why I emailed you.

I’m with you! I prefer to communicate with vendors via e-mail whenever possible. It’s nice to have everything in writing, plus it provides me with more time to properly phrase what I want to say – I get flustered easily on the phone!

ETA: I actually chose my salon for wedding hair and makeup based on the fact that they had a nice website and an e-mail address. I was able to communicate with one of their staff via e-mail to find out if they were available to do a Sunday wedding and then we spoke on the phone to make the actual appointment. When I decided I wanted to bump the appointment up by an hour to have more time for our first look, I just sent another quick e-mail and they got back to me really quickly.

@UpstateCait: AGREED!

We are in the process of looking for a caterer and I can’t believe how many places dont use email. Or..even more annoying are the places that have incorrect email addresses listed. Our venue only allows about 8 or 9 caterers, and of those, 4 emails have bounced back to me. Update your friggin website people!!!!
