Should I fire my Wedding Coordinator?
Allright here we go. Let me first start by saying that I am SUPER Anal and efficient. Having saying that I am fed up with my coordinator. I am getting married May 23, 2009. We orginally hired her to help bring my decor and ideas together in the ceremony and decor at our first location. She has helped in locating a photographer and DJ. She attended the 1st walk through of the venue and our food tasting with the first caterer. We have had only 1 "official" sit-down meeting which was our initial meeting. Her customized price package for us was $3000, which to date we have paid $1800.
As of a couple of weeks ago we were looking to change venues and had 2 in mind. I asked her to come along on a Sunday which she said she did not forsee any problems with. She e-mails me the day of at the time we were supposed to meet to say let her know what our choice was and she will do a walk through we me with the place we had choose. WTF! She did not even call. The only reason I knew she e-mailed me is because it came through my blackberry.
Next issue, we had a scheduled meeting on a Saturday to discuss budget and other little detail items. She leaves me a message asking if she could cancel because she had family at her house that she could not get rid of! When I called her back she did not even pick up or return my call until Monday!
Other issue, when we had a meeting at the florist for our centerpiece mock-up she tried to get out that too, her cousin was in a volleyball tournament and she wanted to be there to support her. Again she calls the day of. I told I really needed her to be there, so she wanted to know if she came in jeans and a shirt liked I really cared. She was there and did not stay for the entire meeting.
SO with the new venue at Verandas it comes with your day-of-coordinator. So what do I do? I was thinking of waiting to see if we have our meeting on Saturday and how it goes to fire her or not. My FI wants to cut our losses and just let her go but I do not want to throw away $1800 we paid nor do I want to pay her another $1200.
What do you ladies think? Am I being to impatient / anal?
Sorry this was so long.
