    Fool Me Once, Shame on You; Fool Me Twice, Fuck You

    So.... remember that post BB wrote as a my OWN vendor vent? You know, the one about how I got fucked over in front of my client when one of my vendors didn't show up for an appointment? Well, all of the feedback I received on BB and via my personal contacts said to give him another chance. We all agreed that because he was protecting existing business (he had to deal with an issue that would have effected the success of a wedding he had that evening, and therefore he did not make our scheduled meeting), he HAD to take care of the business he already had versus potential new business.

    Well, from this day forward I will never trust again. Yes, I am being dramatic (how does it feel brideys?). But, honestly, I defended this vendor who I have worked with several times in the past, and he fucked up... twice... WITH THE SAME CLIENT. Listen, I get that shit happens in this business, I get it. But, I am in this business too, and I was on time, prepared and fucking "on", so I'm sorry if I expect the same professional courtesy from you. You don't get to be a half hour late to this appointment. In fact, you don't even get the luxury of being on time after "no showing" at the last one. Be there early. Be there with fucking bells on. Be there on your knees apologizing for the last time. Because you already fucked up once. Because you got a second chance... and because we all know that second chances don't come along too often.

    So, I fired you. I fired you before we even hired you. When you called, I told you not to bother showing up. Go home. And fuck you. Fuck you because now this bride is doubting "the industry" as a whole. She's doubting all of the hard work that we have already put into this wedding. And actually, now she's doubting if the other vendors (who we've already hired) will show up on her wedding day. Seriously, thanks for making me suffer through a three hour dinner reassuring my bride that "WE'RE" not all the same.

    Oh goodness... I know EXACTLY what you mean. I had a vendor do something like this to me with one of my very last weddings. A bride who was spending $20K with them nonetheless. I gave them a second chance after screwing up, and luckily they finally redeemed themselves, but I had to repeatedly tell them that they better get their shit together. You would think it would be common sense, right?!

    Hey Lauren,

    You would THINK right? I came home at close to midnight and wrote this... I am feeling better this morning, but seriously? It just makes me look stupid. And... I will NEVER use him again....

    UGH!

    XO,

    Learned your lesson. NEVER HIRE THIS VENDOR AGAIN. Mistakes are mistakes, but this is just disrespectful and unprofessional. There are plenty of wedding vendors out there. Don't waste your time with a bad one. xo Linda

    Ugh...I had a similar situation with a DJ company. The relationship started out great, but then one one wedding, he pulled a bait & switch on my client and sent us an inexperienced DJ. He claimed he had to cover for another DJ that didn't show up at one of his other weddings. Well, come to find out, he double booked himself, just to make the sale. The stories go on and on about this unprofessional vendor, I could write a chapter in my book about him!
