Hi! I want to know if I'm (already) being a bridezilla. Promise I won't be offended.
We went up to the town where we're planning on getting married in June 2014 last weekend (it's a destination wedding). We went to visit a potential venue on the Sunday before Memorial Day. We showed up unannounced just to look around, but were lucky enough to get a tour from the General Manager of the property, who was nice but obviously booking weddings was not his job. We were only in town until the following morning (Memorial Day), so he promised that the event co-ordinator would call us "bright and early" and bring us in to take a more detailed look at the venue and wedding packages before we left.
Next morning, no-one calls. I called the number on the card he gave me for the wedding co-ordinator - voicemail. We showed up to the venue again and this time the wedding planner (but not the co-ordinator who handles the bookings) was there, and we sat down with her for a chat and a tour of the property. It's everything we're looking for and under budget - amazing. She promised to get back to me "in the next couple of days" with detailed information.
Fast forward 5 days...nothing. I waited until Friday and e-mailed her to ask for the information. Finally on Sunday I get a separate e-mail from her with some (not all) the information she had promised to send, not acknowledging the e-mail I had sent on Friday. I replied with a list of questions, and now am sitting here waiting to hear back. I have also still never heard from the co-ordinator person, the one who was supposed to call me "bright and early" on Memorial Day, and on whose voicemail I left a message that morning.
Am I being super paranoid, is this normal communicativeness for a typical venue? This is a large resort-style hotel, with a small building that we would be renting out for the wedding. I realize that our wedding is a long way away (June 2014) and very small (40 people), so we may be a low priority, but does the level of communicativeness indicate a lack of interest on their part or a red flag? I'm just trying to get a sense of what I should expect here in terms of communication (speed of responding to e-mails, returning phonecalls, etc.). Other potential venues have been a lot more responsive so far.
Thanks in advance for your help! Feel free to tell me I just need to calm down and be patient. Hell knows, my FI is already telling me over and over.
