The Truth Hurts Tuesday ~ Back OFF Bridey!
I'm frustrated. I'm annoyed. I'm pissed off. I'm working with the bride who is actually quite nice. She's funny and intelligent. She knows what she wants. And so far, working with her has been lovely. Well, until recently. Her wedding isn't until 2015 (June of 2015 to be specific), and she is absolutely so hung up on one detail of the wedding (that she just wants to "cross off" her list), and is getting all pissy because the vendor she is beginning to stalk, I mean working with, isn't so quick to get back to her.
Here we go again, bridey. It seems like no matter how many times I say it, I cannot seem to get it to stick. So, let me jump up on my fucking soap box (yet again), and remind you that if your wedding isn't until 2015 or even 2016, you don't count right now. Sorry, but I speak the truth. And your vendors are too nice to say it (as they should be), but I am not! Right now, your vendors are in the middle of fall wedding season, 2014, and unless your wedding is rapidly approaching, then you'll just have to wait. And, I know it's hard. And, I know that you want to cross shit off of your list, but it's not okay to budge in line. And, by being a demanding bride, that is essentially what you're doing when you're stalking a vendor for an answer that you need RIGHT NOW.
Bridey, you must give all of us (vendors) some time to not only GET the answer to your question, but do the appropriate research required so we don't give you the wrong answer simply so that WE can cross YOU off of OUR list. Again, bridey, I am in no way suggesting that it is okay for a vendor to not respond to you; all I am saying is that if you receive an email stating that they will look into it once the dust settles (from the current wedding season), then let it go! And in fairness, you might not realize it, but what you are asking of your vendor might require precious hours that they just don't have. The solution? Move on to a simpler task for you to "cross off" of your list; one that does not require assistance from your vendors, wait your turn and quit your bitchin', bridey!
Vendors? Care to chime in here? Are you working with a bride who is driving you nuts for answers, but her wedding isn't until 2015 or 2016???
