Basically, I've been chasing our wedding planner for an updated balance for the past 8 weeks. Today, she sent me over this email:
Here is the final balance attached. I have confirmed all costs with the villa, as you are meant to have 50 guests and numbers have dropped we have added the staff meals and child meal in here for you. It says on the contract you should have a minimum of 50 guests. I have attached the breakdown from the villa here for you but still all works out fine.
I sent her this email in May 2016:
This is awesome news, thank you!
I am happy to accept the quote, but what happens if we send out the invites but only 40 people are able to come? Will the cost change?
Okay perfect! If your guest numbers are less you will only pay for the number of guests attending your wedding, for the reception meals. The villa hire cost will stay the same. Also so you know this villa only uses one music company as they have exclsuive use.
Where do I stand here? It's basically £2,000 extra for another 10 empty guests. I feel like she's back-peddling, but I've got the evidence that she told me that I wouldn't pay for additional meals.
They are also charging me for 50 open bars when I only have 40 guests, and for my two year old nephew.
I fly out to Italy in 6 days. I am so annoyed. My wedding planner is costing me £2,750. I'm so angry.
