It’s time to book our venue. In fact, the venue we ultimately decided to go with (and put soft holds on dates with), told us in June to contact them in July to book. Well, James has been contacting them repeatedly in July (again, by their request), and they aren’t answering us! We both have little tolerance for this. As a result, I will be checking out a new venue in Cambridge this week.
Has anyone else experienced this before? Working in client services, and sometimes in event planning, I know that there is a small threshold of time that you must respond to your client. I would accept the event coordinator being on vacation, but at least have an out of office turned on in your email!
Hopefully by next week we will have a venue booked, a date in place and can start working on a realistic timeline (sure I might have bought my dress early, but that’s the only thing I didn’t wait on!).
In other news, James and I have adopted a guinea pig. Her name is Squeaky and she’s very sweet.
Don’t worry, she won’t be part of the wedding.
