Hi Sharon,
I've left you a couple of messages and it's apparent that you're not going to return any of my calls, which is fine if that's the way you want to conduct your business. Since you refuse to return my calls to discuss the issues in a professional manner I have no choice but to put all this in an email. This email will list a lot of the issues and complaints that we had and also heard about from family members as well as some of the guests. These are in no particular order.
• You lied to me about having sent the samples of the photo ideas that I wanted Rudy to capture, therefore a lot of pictures that I wanted didn't get taken. Both Rudy and Bobby stated that they never saw any photo samples from you directly nor through email. I cried when this was told to me by Rudy at the time we got to the venue, then I found out that the venue wasn't ready when the guests arrived, which got me even more upset. Bobby and Matt had to talk to me to calm me down.
• We didn't get any pictures taken of tne entire families together, my parents and his dad, our siblings. A lot of pictures didn't get done and I'll never be able to get that moment back.
• What happened to the other two ladies that you were going to have working with you to set up the venue and oversee that Debra and Frances got the linens and all put on the tables, etc. I did not appreciate the fact that you used Tracy and Marian as though they worked for you. They did more work than they wanted to do and didn't get to enjoy the event as much as they would have liked thanks to you.
• The execution of the entire reception was very poorly planned. All the linens and reception items should have been in place prior to any of the guests arriving. I did not envision having my "wedding planner" scrounge around for my family and friends to help you get the venue put together at the very last minute while other guests stood around waiting and getting frustrated.
• Why weren't there enough of tables and chairs set up prior to the event starting.
• You were suppose to be at Shawnee's to pick up the flowers at a certain time but you were 30 minutes late therefore she had to get someone to drop them off outside of the church. The flowers were left unattended, who knows for how long, thankfully they were still there and untouched when we arrived at the church at 1:25.
• The guest signature frame was not put out at the reception for people to sign it. My nephew told me that he had to get it out of your truck because you forgot and left it in there. This sucks because I'm now having to go around to ask people who were at the wedding to sign it after the fact.
• Matt and I didn't like the fact that you kept tying to push the FOP off on us after we told you on several occasions that we were not interested in that place. I told you in the beginning that I did not like the look of it on the outside but you continued on trying to get me to go there to look at it over and over again, you just would not let it go. Matt didn't trust you then and wanted to deal with you as little as possible after that.
• Not explaining to the DJ how you wanted things done ahead of time and the time frame in which things should have been executed.
• You were very unorganized and did a very poor job on the executing the time frame of events. You allowed a lot of the guests to leave before the bouquet and garter toss and also the staging of the exit. I had to ask some people to stay a little longer just so we'll have people there to get this done for picture purposes.
• On a few meetings we had with some vendors, you were very unorganized then also. There were times where you had taken notes and then on the next meeting you didn't have the notes in the "notebook" like you were suppose to. Good examples: not having the right sample pictures I sent to you of the bouquets when we meet with Shawnee, also of the cake and my wedding dress. You never kept the "notebook" updated which was quite frustrating and embarassing.
• Complaints of you smelling like smoke while you were working a professional event. You claimed that you didn't smoke while you're working weddings, guess the stress got to you. Very unprofessional.
• I was told that the RSVP list was the incorrect one.
• Being late and unavailable to vendors and other people that were helping you. Calls went unanswered.
• Complaints about you not knowing what you were doing at the rehearsal and the entire wedding day, being all "scatter brains". People commenting amongst themselves saying "where did Marilyn hire this woman from". There were vendors who also complained to family members and to me directly.
• We were told by you that we didn't have to clean the venue after the event ended. Obviously that wasn't the case because the entire family had to pitch in at the end and get everything cleaned up at the last minute.
• I specifically told you prior to and also the night of the rehearsal that I DID NOT want a bride side and a groom side, I wanted the church to be balanced. It was obvious that did not get explained to the ushers or anyone else.
• You left the event without saying a word to Matt or myself because you knew and were embarassed by the fact that the reception was totally screwed up.
Sharon, I can go on and on finding things that didn't go well with the execution of our wedding day and the last couple of months leading up to the day. But I don't have the time or energy to do so plus I'm getting another headache just thinking about it. Of course you will not receive any recommendations or any good reviews from us.

Regards,
Marilyn

Marilyn,

I have not returned any calls to anyone since the Monday after your wedding due to illness; however, I did expect to hear from you by e-mail. I have read your message and you can expect an answer by tomorrow night. I just wanted you to know that I have not forgotten you or your concerns.

Hi Sharon,
I've left you a couple of messages and it's apparent that you're not going to return any of my calls, which is fine if that's the way you want to conduct your business. Since you refuse to return my calls to discuss the issues in a professional manner I have no choice but to put all this in an email. This email will list a lot of the issues and complaints that we had and also heard about from family members as well as some of the guests. These are in no particular order.
• You lied to me about having sent the samples of the photo ideas that I wanted Rudy to capture, therefore a lot of pictures that I wanted didn't get taken. Both Rudy and Bobby stated that they never saw any photo samples from you directly nor through email. I cried when this was told to me by Rudy at the time we got to the venue, then I found out that the venue wasn't ready when the guests arrived, which got me even more upset. Bobby and Matt had to talk to me to calm me down.

[DW Reply] I did not lie to you concerning the pictures. I had sent them to Rudy and unfortunately neither of us knows what happened to the e-mail. Bobbie did receive the picture of the heart.

• We didn't get any pictures taken of tne entire families together, my parents and his dad, our siblings. A lot of pictures didn't get done and I'll never be able to get that moment back.

[DW Reply] Your photographer, (Rudy), was at the church at 1pm. The last time I checked on your bridal party at 3:45 they were still not dressed. When I went to get your mother for the picture of her putting the veil on you, she was not dressed. One of the others and I helped her to get her dress on. The groom did not arrive at the church until 3:15. (He was to have arrive at 2:15pm) I can supply a call log for that day if you would like. The pictures you are referring to are standard for any photographer. I have worked with Rudy many times and there has never been a problem with him getting those shots. If you have any issues or complaints, I suggest directing them to Rudy.

• What happened to the other two ladies that you were going to have working with you to set up the venue and oversee that Debra and Frances got the linens and all put on the tables, etc. I did not appreciate the fact that you used Tracy and Marian as though they worked for you. They did more work than they wanted to do and didn't get to enjoy the event as much as they would have liked thanks to you

[DW Reply] The person who I had hired to hold the door for the entrance into and out of the church did not show up. Since Tracy had said she would help, I asked her to do that one job. Marian, (the one handing out the programs and handling the RSVP list), that was all she was to do. I had explained that one of your guest would have to pour the champagne since I nor any one of Waddell's could pour since we do not carry the proper license. When the time came, I did not know who you had appointed, so I went to them. The 3 of us passed out champagne glasses while one of them poured the champagne. The girl who was going to oversee the linen being put on the tables and chairs, did show, she was with Shawnee. Shawnee even sent her husband to the church to help locate the linens because Ms. Debra could not find them. I talked with her when she was at the church and again when Shawnees' husband arrived, and we could not find them. Ms. Debra took the box of napkins, another box, and a bag filled with "something" (per Ms. Debra.) I thought these were the items needed to be set up by me. They were not. The second girl, who was with Shawnee was never meant to set up anything. Her job was to ensure that the runners were set on the tables and bows tied according to the photo I gave to Ms. Debra. (This can be confirmed)

• The execution of the entire reception was very poorly planned. All the linens and reception items should have been in place prior to any of the guests arriving. I did not envision having my "wedding planner" scrounge around for my family and friends to help you get the venue put together at the very last minute while other guests stood around waiting and getting frustrated.

[DW Reply] No family members or guests were asked to do anything. One of your guests did offer, I politely thanked her and said no. (She was the one with the baby). Ms Debra and Ms. Frances volunteered to stay and help. Gwen's' staff offered and did help. I have since spoken to Ms. Debra to thank her and offered to pay her what I had recommended you pay to someone I could hire who would not only pick everything up, set the table with the linens and return to pick them back up after the ceremony and return them to the church. You refused that recommendation. As stated in my contract, family and friends mean well, but I take no responsibility if the job is not done correctly. In this case, it was due to the fact no one could find the linens or the items to be taken to the reception site.

• Why weren't there enough of tables and chairs set up prior to the event starting.
[DW Reply] Your final count including the wedding party and the children were 88. Tables and chairs for that many were set up. You will find the rest of the explanation with your issue of the RSVP list.

• You were suppose to be at Shawnee's to pick up the flowers at a certain time but you were 30 minutes late therefore she had to get someone to drop them off outside of the church. The flowers were left unattended, who knows for how long, thankfully they were still there and untouched when we arrived at the church at 1:25.

[DW Reply] I was at Shawnees' to pick up the flowers at 12:00 . After going over the paperwork for the flowers, Shawnee decided it would be best if her driver delivered the flowers (at no additional charge), because they were so delicate and needed to remain in the bucket, not touching anything. We arrived at the church a 1:00pm (her driver followed me). Since no one was there and the door was locked, the flowers were left outside. When I called you at 1:00, you said you were just leaving the house. I then left, leaving Bobbie in charge of the flowers, so they were not left unattended.

• The guest signature frame was not put out at the reception for people to sign it. My nephew told me that he had to get it out of your truck because you forgot and left it in there. This sucks because I'm now having to go around to ask people who were at the wedding to sign it after the fact.

[DW Reply] You were suppose to supply an easel which I could take to the reception site to set on up the table. Since there was no easel, the picture was not displayed. Yes, I left it in my truck and "almost" forgot to take it in when your personal items were being gathered.

• Matt and I didn't like the fact that you kept tying to push the FOP off on us after we told you on several occasions that we were not interested in that place. I told you in the beginning that I did not like the look of it on the outside but you continued on trying to get me to go there to look at it over and over again, you just would not let it go. Matt didn't trust you then and wanted to deal with you as little as possible after that.

[DW Reply] When it was decided that you wanted a place to dance, I told you numerous time, include at the Navel Museum when Matt could not believe that there were no other venues available, that your choices were limited. The cost of the FOP is normally $1000.00 and the decorations you wanted are normally $1000.00 (from the picture you had seen.) I was able to get the price down to $850.00 You and I discussed the fact that any other place which you could afford required on-site catering and you would need to cancel your contract with Waddell's' . You chose not to do this. The other 3 available sites which would fit your budget and allow off-site careering were the historical house on Wynnton Road and a church which did allow dancing, off-site catering, was large enough, tables and chairs, and whose cost was within your budget, you did not want. Yes, I did refer back to the FOP. You did not want a church as you did not wish to have those in your family who would not dance because it was a church to feel uncomfortable. Once I spoke to the two of you after looking at the Naval Museum, we discussed your options again. I was told you would think about the Navel Museum and the FOP. Your choice was the Navel Museum. I had even discussed the fact that you would have guests downstairs and upstairs and the chances of the guests who would stay downstairs (their choice) would most likely leave earlier than usual. I did not mention the FOP again. If Matt (or you) did not trust me anymore, then you should have stated that and considered terminating our contract. This is the first I have heard of this.

• Not explaining to the DJ how you wanted things done ahead of time and the time frame in which things should have been executed.

[DW Reply] I spend two hours with your DJ, Jesse James, at the museum going over things with him. He received the names of the bridal party 2 -3 days by hand delivery as he did not have an e-mail address. He received the time line when I got to the reception. He did none of the things the way we had discussed at our meeting. I had advised against hiring a DJ or anyone who was family or friends. I am not a DJ and I did my very best to MC your wedding for him. Except for your introductions, his only other attempts to do his job was during the toasting. When he came back up the stairs, he told me he could not get them to do it. When he was playing the background music you had requested, you informed me you did not like it and I had him change it. Again, you were unhappy with him and I gave you the choice of my trying to get him to do his job or I could do my best to try and MC. You chose me. The only thing he did that was on time was the bouquet toss and the gaiter toss.

• You were very unorganized and did a very poor job on the executing the time frame of events. You allowed a lot of the guests to leave before the bouquet and garter toss and also the staging of the exit. I had to ask some people to stay a little longer just so we'll have people there to get this done for picture purposes.

[DW Reply] Your time frame to get everything done was to be finished at 8:35pm. Everything was done by 8:30. I have no control over guest leaving or staying. You were advised that guests were more likely to stay longer if: 1) your entrance is fun, 2) have some kind of hor d'overs and at least tea available to your guests due to the fact that they would arrive before you. I offered to talk to Waddell's' about allowing you to bring a cheese and cracker tray in from Sams or Publix which would have been a cost of approximately $25.00. You stated that was too much money. 3)the DJ is the most important vendor at your reception. If he is good, your guests will stay longer; if he is bad, they will leave sooner. Jesse was suppose to have been a professional. I had a DJ lined up for you to meet with who was in your budget, but you chose Jesse James instead. My understanding was because he was somehow related to you and the cost was only $200.00.

• On a few meetings we had with some vendors, you were very unorganized then also. There were times where you had taken notes and then on the next meeting you didn't have the notes in the "notebook" like you were suppose to. Good examples: not having the right sample pictures I sent to you of the bouquets when we meet with Shawnee, also of the cake and my wedding dress. You never kept the "notebook" updated which was quite frustrating and embarassing.

[DW Reply] [DW Reply] Notes are always in the notebook. Your example of our meeting with Shawnee, I NEVER keep a picture of the wedding gown in the notebook. There is always a chance the groom may see it. The picture I did bring was my mistake as I knew I had a picture of your gown on a hanger. (I still have those pictures). Looking it up on the computer was not a problem. The flowers: They were the different pictures showing what you were looking for. There was never just one favorite. The notes I take when with a florist is not as detailed as the ones they make. It was best to use hers. The cake: there was some confusion about which cake you wanted, which is why everything is confirmed before the wedding so that any mistakes on any vendor's part can be corrected. When you called me for the flavors you and Matt had liked, yes, I had to get the notes. The flavors as I told you were marble and strawberry out of the four you tasted. The notes that I take are for me as a reference.

• Complaints of you smelling like smoke while you were working a professional event. You claimed that you didn't smoke while you're working weddings, guess the stress got to you. Very unprofessional.

[DW Reply] I do not smoke while I during the wedding or the reception. I do smoke if I am going from one site to another as I made clear. I have never had a complaint about this before, but since it has always been a concern of mine, I have asked past brides, family members, vendors, and bridal parties about it. I cannot believe they all lied when they said they did not smell anything.

• I was told that the RSVP list was the incorrect one.

[DW Reply] There was only one RSVP list. All guests who RSVPed were on the list. The first guest to arrive was a party of 5. The last name was not on the list. They insisted they were on the list and instead of causing a scene, I told your friend to let them in. Thus the shortage of 5 chairs and 5 place settings that I know of. The program prints out the RSVP list of those who were entered in as a "yes".

• Being late and unavailable to vendors and other people that were helping you. Calls went unanswered.

[DW Reply] Being late: Refer to answer to your issue of arrival of the flowers. All calls were answered. If no answer when I returned them, then there was nothing I could do.

• Complaints about you not knowing what you were doing at the rehearsal and the entire wedding day, being all "scatter brains". People commenting amongst themselves saying "where did Marilyn hire this woman from". There were vendors who also complained to family members and to me directly.

[DW Reply] Rehearsal: Whenever you have people making suggestions, asking a lot of questions and stating how it "should" be done, things become confusing for everyone. I have since spoken to all of your vendors and no one has said anything negative. I assure you, they would not have hesitated to say something to me if they felt there was a problem with my work.

• We were told by you that we didn't have to clean the venue after the event ended. Obviously that wasn't the case because the entire family had to pitch in at the end and get everything cleaned up at the last minute.

[DW Reply] The only "cleaning up" you were responsible for was the removal of your personal items, gifts, and linens as you did not want to pay to have someone come in to pick them up. The caterer cleaned what she was suppose to clean. The rest of the clean up; removing the tables and chairs, and vacuuming was done by the site. You were told this each time you asked as were your sister and mother when they asked.

• I specifically told you prior to and also the night of the rehearsal that I DID NOT want a bride side and a groom side, I wanted the church to be balanced. It was obvious that did not get explained to the ushers or anyone else.

[DW Reply] It was explained to the ushers. You were told that guests will sometimes want to sit on the side of either the bride or groom. It was explained to the ushers that if someone requested to sit on a particular side, to let them. It would have been extremely rude not to have.

• You left the event without saying a word to Matt or myself because you knew and were embarassed by the fact that the reception was totally screwed up.

[DW Reply] I was not embarrassed. I was disappointed. I did speak to the both of you. First to Matt. I told him I was sorry things did not go very well. He did say he was disappointed, but decided to have a good time. He then gave me a very big hug. We talked about how could someone who I thought would faint at the altar and who so nervous because of the first dance, could do the garter toss the way he did. We even laughed about. I then went to you to say good-by and to tell you that I was sorry things did not go very well. Before I had the chance you told me we would talk. I replied for you to call me when you returned from your honeymoon. You did and I was unable to talk at that time, however, you have received a reply to your e-mail as I told you.
I would like to point out that I have worked with the vendors I referred you to on many weddings. Every one of us went above and beyond for your wedding. You were given huge discounts because they knew you were my favorite bride. They do not do that just to be nice. Your wedding budget was $5000.00 with 75 guests. At the time of our first conversation, I was told that your mother was taking care of the catering. It wasn't until after the contract was signed that I was told that she was paying for it, it was still coming out of the budget. "Taking care of..." and "it is coming out of the budget" are two separate things.
Had the advise which was given been taken (already discussed above) and had your bridal party been ready on time, your wedding would have been as wonderful as planned.
I wish you and Matt the very best of luck in your new life together. If you would like a hard copy of the RSVP list/vendor timeline/phone log, let me know and I will mail it out to you.

Sharon, I can go on and on finding things that didn't go well with the execution of our wedding day and the last couple of months leading up to the day. But I don't have the time or energy to do so plus I'm getting another headache just thinking about it. Of course you will not receive any recommendations or any good reviews from us.

Regards,
Marilyn

Sharon;

I can't thank you enough for making all of our "special" little surprises come true. I truly got the wedding of my dreams and couldn't have done it without you. You made sure that everyone had a great time and that Chad and I were not rushed and still got everything accomplished. Even when we changed a few details at the last minute, you handled everything with a smile and got it done. I truly got my fairy tale wedding. THANK YOU

Last October my mom got married, and at first it was just me and her trying to plan everything. We were so far in over our heads. Dream Wedding came in a saved the day. They were absolutely amazing. They fixed up all of the loose ends, and taught us stuff that those little wedding books never think to add. They were the greatest help on my mom's big day!!

Sharon was AMAZING! She bent over backwards to accomodate our wish list and budget. Not only was she professional, she was also very down to Earth, which made us feel comfortable and at ease with the formalities of the wedding. I would recommend her for any wedding, large or small. I felt like she was able to take our relatively small budget and stretch it a hundred times over! Sharon went with me to pick out my gown and even arranged for a private shopping day within the bridal salon, which was just an added bonus on top of the other services that she went above and beyond. Dream Wedding is an excellent option for any bride who thought they could never afford a wedding planner!
