I was reading one of my favorite blogs today and The Food Whore was discussing her encounter with a mean Mother of the Bride. The Food Whore has a way with words and she is hilarious at discussing unfortunate incidents that take place.
It seems that this dear lady has decided to wait until three weeks before her daughter’s wedding to book a caterer. Food Whore turned the wedding down and proceeded to inquire the MOB on why she had waited until three weeks before the wedding to book a caterer. The story continues and then mean MOB is “pissy” and says “Just so you know, you weren’t even first on my list! You are the 4th on my list. So don’t think you are special!!”
Food Whore responds with, “So I assume the first 3 turned you down then?”
Lessons learned: Don’t wait until the last minute to book your vendors. If you decide to wait until the last minute, please be understanding AND polite when the vendors tell you that they’re booked. Then, ask if they have any recommendations they can provide you with. Chances are good, they know more wedding professionals than you do and will be willing to assist you IF you are as sweet as pie.
