So my heart goes out to all who are affected by this terrible situation. There is so much that a bride and groom think about in the wedding planning process but worrying about your vendors coming through should not be on their radar. I cannot stress enough the important of selecting high quality vendors who have strong and long reputations of impeccable work. Before hiring a vendor you should meet with them, review their references, research them on business bureaus and on weddings websites where past brides review their work, and tap into the expertise of a wedding planner or local expert who can tell you if they recommend them and why. You put a lot of faith, trust, and money into your wedding professionals and it is vital that you think your choices through and select those who you have complete confidence in.
I do have to say that this Wedding Combo situation is extremely rare, and all of the vendors I work with and recommend are up- and outstanding. Please don’t let one bad egg spoil the reputation for the wedding community at large. I hate to see that any couples are going through this tragedy and for all of your with weddings coming up I hope you find replacements who will perform above and beyond what you were offered originally. And for any Wedding Combo brides who want my help finding replacements I would be more than happy to give you my recommendations and vendor suggestions free of charge. You have been through enough, I would be thrilled to do a little something to make all of this better for you.
It’s your biggest day, and you can’t leave things up to chance. Best wishes to all.
