Be careful when choosing a vendor

Just be careful when choosing your vendors. One we used forgot over 100 candles at our reception...not one candle in the room!!!!   It made a huge difference in ambiance.   Be careful!!!  Don't let your special day be ruined.  Find a vendor who really cares about making your day special and who will do their best to make it up to you if something goes wrong!

    Was your day really ruined?  Did you get married?  Did you have a good time?  I am sure it was disappointing to not have the look you were going for, but I am sure your guests enjoyed the night and it was really no big deal. 

    Does this company know your screenname and that you post here?  I think it is highly unlikely they can win a lawsuit against you if they did something wrong.    Besides, the BBB is a place to file complaints against a company, and I don't think they can file a suit on that. 

    I am sorry they only refunded the cost of the candles, but really that is all they should have to do if they fulfilled the rest of the bargain.

    I don't have anything to add to what CA said very well....OP, duh! When choosing a vendor, you have to read all the fine print. Yes it sucked that they didn't bring the candles, but you got married so the day wasn't ruined. Drama rama.

    </div><div>I'm sorry about the candles - that would be a bummer, epecially if that was supposed to be a source of lighting during the ceremony; and likewise could have had an effect on the photography/etc.  Hopefully your photographer was able to work with the available light.  </div><div>
