I had the craziest meeting with a potential baker for our wedding cake this morning. Now, I'm not sure what to do.
So first off, I was dumb enough to schedule a cake tasting at 9:30 this morning. I ended up going alone because my darling fiance went out and drank his face off last night and was in no condition to see the light of day, so I was kind of pissed to begin with. But that's a whole different rant. Anyhoo, so I get to the arranged meeting place, and wait. And wait. And then, 15 minutes after we're supposed to meet, I get a phone call from her. She just woke up, and slept through her alarm and she's crying. She told me she'd be there in 20 minutes with samples and I told her I'd just bring them home so we could try them later. When she got there (20 minutes later, true to her word), she had a slight meltdown on me, crying and telling me about her super overloaded work/home/family schedule she's dealing with right now. She handed me contract paperwork and told me that if we do agree to use her she'd give us 25% off our total bill. I felt bad for her and ended up consoling her and telling her it was NBD, but it was weird. Really weird.
So...the cake samples were A-MAZING. Every single review of her is awesome. There are no complaints, and there are a number of knotties that have used her and gave her A+ reviews. I'm just a little nervous now after this morning. Plus, when I initially contacted her, she took almost a whole week to respond, which I found a little concerning. Should I take this as a giant red flag and run, or just chalk it up to her having a really, really bad day and happily take advantage of my healthy discount?
