Yes don’t jump the gun. You are just antsy right now. As long as you have ENOUGH time don’t worry too much unless its like a week and you don’t hear anything. I am working with two etsy vendors myself and I definitely didn’t want to rush their work.

I would say give her one more chance to send the preview.  My etsy vendor for the invitations was fantastic and super responsive. I’m sure you want the invites sooner rather than later, with your date getting closer.

Have you paid to get this preview? Maybe you can get a free preview from another vendor as well to compare their quality and customer service.

I dont think you are jumping the gun…If she takes her business seriously she wouldnt put you off like that. Plus your wedding isnt that far away.

Uhm.. well since your wedding is in July she really should be all over this. You can’t put this off for too long. I suggest maybe sending her an email asking her politely if she will be able to abide by your sensitive timeline, and mention that if it’s too overwhelming for her that you’re willing to absolve her of the project.

I don’t think it’s rude.  She told you she would get it done on a certain timeline and failed…twice.  As a vendor, I know that my word is my business!  If I’m not going to mail something until next Friday, I WILL NOT tell someone it’ll be out this weekend!  I’m honest with them.  People appreciate that a hell of a lot more than constant delaying tactics.  If you haven’t put a deposit down yet, I’d suggest shopping around.  And before you switch, I’d throw a shot across her bow with an e-mail stating that you appreciate if she keeps her word and gets things done at the times she says she will, or you will be looking elsewhere.  Sometimes vendors need reality checks!

I don’t think it is rude but I would give her another chance.  If she does not have something solid by the end of the week then absolutley find someone else!  When she said she would give you a preview did she tell you when she would have it ready or did you tell her a date you needed to see them by?

It’s NOT rude, be firm!  I started using an Etsy seller for my invites and had a seriously horrible experience because she did exactly what you are talking about once I paid for the invites.  She finally sent us our preview and it looked horrendous.  Because it was so late we had to part ways with her and make our own (which I’m SO glad we did – they came out better than her designs), but we had to rush to do it.

I would consider it.  I mean, I emailed my Etsy seller many times and nicely asked if she would still be able to make my deadline.  Each time, she said yes…until it PAST the deadline!  I started getting really tired of waiting and started getting really firm in my emails, stating that I couldn’t wait any longer and I needed my preview by that week or I would have to report her.  She ended up FINALLY responding and overnighted my crappy preview.

I wish I would have realized earlier than from her lack of communication she wasn’t someone that was goin to make my dream invites.

Id email her and let her know you are getting anxious because you need the invitations soon.  If she doesnt respond within 24 hours Id consider looking somewhere else.  Just keep in mind, things do come up that are more important than work.  I understand she promised she would have a preview to you by a certain date but I also completely understand that she had family things that take precedence.
