So FRUSTRATED!!! UGH.....

I'm sure nobody cares but me, but I am so sick of calling vendors and them not calling back, and people raising their prices when they hear "wedding" so on and so forth. Are you serious??? So a church that we called over a month ago called back yesterday,"have you found somewhere to hold your ceremony?" Umm...... Yes, I'm getting married in less than 4 months so we had to keep moving!! At least they called back! Several havent even bothered to call after several messages.


I have been searching for cake vendors, after the first vendor gave a price, that was kind of hard to swallow. I am a gal of options! I have to research everything! So my coordinators asked after that tasting, "so are you going to go with them" Umm... I need to see more options before I choose, THANKS ; ) I got advise from a PW gal and met with her cake vendor who is very reasonable! Turns out she has a family wedding to go to my date and cant do it! Moving on, yesterday I met with another vendor who has great reviews and so called "very reasonable" . HA!!!! Yeah right, everything went well at the tasting and she needed to email me the price later that night. So I check my email this am and she emailed me a quote almost $400 more than the first guy for a more simpler design. ARE YOU KIDDING ME???


Sorry girls, I just had to let it out!

The event decorator that we have to use (she is exclusive to the venue and we can't set up ourselves as we can't get into the room until 11 and the wedding is at 3 and between 11 and 3 I will be getting hair and makeup done) is hopeless at returning emails. I can get her on the phone and she has given me a verbal confirmation that she can do what I what and the price but after 3 weeks still hasn't sent me through a contract! It is agonising! Once I get her sorted all of my vendors are under control. She is lovely to chat with but just slack on doing what she says which worries me a bit!

Yeah!  i've gotten the run around from vendors too.  my venue is terrible at returning emails and is iffy on phone calls.  or worse, you set up appts and nobody shows up.  that's happened to me twice!

It seems that once you book them, they want nothing to do with you until your date gets closer. lol


That's how I felt. They fail to realize, yes...they've been doing weddings for years...for most of us, it's our first time!

Speaking of cakes - how much is the running price that people are finding?  I am getting a very simple cake for 50 people and was quoted $350.  Is that normal/high/low?

Mine isn't simple, but it's $400ish for 120 people (not saving the top tier cut the cost as well since we can put that into the slice count).

@akbridehi  I think it depends on where you are. The ridiculous lady I got the most recent quote for was $1025 for a 4 tier cake that serves 160. Ummmmm Yeah right! I am a bride on a budget and even if I did have it, I refuse to pay over a grand for a dang cake!! And the design was simple!
