So as most of you know, we had a LOT of problems with our wedding coordinator, which resulted in a lot of bumps along the way in terms of planning, as well as several big bumps on our wedding day. The 2 big ones were that we paid for airbrush makeup and I got regular makeup, and that we paid for a narrated trolley tour of Savannah (since only 2 of our guests had ever been there, and most of them were only staying 2 days so they wouldn't get to see much of the city)while we were off taking photos after the ceremony but it was not narrated - they just drove around for an hour. (My hair/makeup person was also an hour late, causing us to have to skip the first look photo shoot and leaving our guests wondering what was going on, my bouquet arrived half dead, he took at least 3 weeks to respond to my emails once he had several thousand dollars of our money, he never seated the mothers or bothered to keep the front row open for them, and a bunch of other things that a good wedding coordinator should have done.)
I wrote the wedding coordinator to express my displeasure and this morning he wrote me back, saying he didn't remember me asking for a narrated trolley ride, but he'd send a check when he had the time. He also said " it seems your a very unhappy and angry person and im sorry for that" OMFG!!!! No he didn't!!!!
I wrote him back and ripped him a new one. I know, I know.... I should have calmed down first but good grief - what kind of "professional" does that?!?!?!? And of course I'm angry and unhappy - he took my money and didn't hold up his end of the bargain. What does he expect? That I'd be pooping glittery rainbows and say "It's ok Chad, go ahead and keep the money for services you didn't provide?" Friggin idiot.
I already wrote to the Savannah Chamber of Commerce to let them know about his shady business ethics, how he treats his clients, and how that reflects on brides who may be considering Savannah for their weddings. I also called the trolley company to let them know that he is taking money from brides for narrated tours, but only scheduling "ride-around" tours with the trolley company. I've filed with the BBB and am looking into as many online review sites as I can find so that no other brides EVER have to deal with this idiot ever again.
Initially, I was wondering if I should have just let this go and when I wrote him the initial letter, I even posted here that I felt bad about it. Now I don't feel bad at all. The gloves are off!
