Okay so. A long time ago I posted about how we were having a terrible time finding an officiant for our wedding. I had honestly stopped looking, figuring that maybe it would work itself out eventually.
A couple days ago someone from WedPlan (the most ungodly obnoxious website on the face of the planet -- whole other can of worms, but I had to delete myself from the site as I was getting 10 and 15 calls a night from their vendors) emailed me. I suppose she had archived my information before I deleted my profile.
ANYWAY. Had a brief rapport with her via email (10ish back and forth) and decided to put down a REALLY affordable deposit without actually meeting her.
Then I got to thinking... why is she so cheap? She's out of Charlotte, my wedding is in Pilot Mountain, this all includes travel... whats up with this. She claims to have been doing ceremonies since 1996 (which I'm not doubting, I'm just stating that she's not cheap because she's new to the business).
So. With $45 on the line (which wouldn't be the end of the world if I lost) -- did I make a terrible decision in not meeting with her in person first? I don't know why my doubt kicked in all of a sudden, but it did. Has anyone else had any weird instances of that, or am I crazy?
