I need a little help here, hopefully someone will tell me it's fine and to calm down! Ok, so my wedding is March 20, 2016. Before I booked my venue I read tons of reviews online for all the venues we were going to see. I wanted a venue with very good reviews and a great event coordinator as I have no idea how to plan a wedding and wanted some guidance. After touring the venues and reading all the reviews we decided to book with the Mill as all the reviews were saying how helpful the event coordinator Amy was and how responsive etc. I must say she has been great so far, always responds to my e-mails right away, very helpful with planning etc. everything is great so far!
Well, yesterday things took a turn for the worst. I received a letter from the owner of the Mill stating that Amy is no longer with them, and there is a new event coordinator Kerry Anne. I was a bit upset as Amy was so helpful, but I thought at least it happens now and not 2 months before my wedding. This morning I googled the new lady and found her linkedin page. She was an event coordinator/ sales manager at a restaurant in the area from 2006-2011 this restaurant has awful reviews for event etc. but not during the time she was there, I cannot find any reviews for the time she was there. She then worked at a dr's office from 2013-2014 and most recently as of October 2014- present (I guess till she joined the Mill as of May 1st) was a catering manager at a local university.
I am so worried! It sounds as if she hasn't done weddings in 4 years! How experienced can she be if she recently worked in a Dr's office and a university! Sure, it is a large university, but there are many differences between weddings and university, let alone the standard of the food the atmosphere and all that. Am I being to worried? Should I just give the new girl a chance? I am thinking of cancelling, I gave a $2,000 deposit already and have another $1,600 deposit coming up next week. So I don't want to give them the second deposit if I am going to cancel as I will already be losing $2,000.
Any insight if anyone has been through this before would be great. Thanks!
