I just need to vent... I received my contact last night from my hair and makeup salon. It states the total amount is due the evening before our appointment. I asked if we could split the bill, because my girls are paying for their own services (I gave them the option, and they decided to do it), and was told no, that it needs to be paid as one lump sum, and that the girls can just pay me individually. I responded again saying that some are planning to use a credit cards, so could they call ahead to make payments on it. Again, no. I am two weeks away from my wedding, and I am just now being informed of this. I am incredibly frustrated, as I was not planning on fronting $400 for everyone's services. I have also never heard of paying for a service in advance, OR making one person cover all expenses. Any time I have been in a wedding, we have gone to the salon and paid on the day individually. I read the contract and it does state that it needs to be a lump sum payment, BUT it also states all services will be confirmed 30 days out. Well, it took everything in me not to respond and point out the fact that they themselves have already breached their contract by giving less notice. I have this place booked for next year as well (our wedding changed to a micro this year, big party next year) but at this point, I don't even know if I want to do business with them again. My hairdresser has also been really delayed with responses, and I had to actually follow up with HER because she never reached out after my trial like she said she would.On top of this, my mother texts me today and tells me she decided not to get her makeup done, which I now still need to pay for, since there is a minimum amount for services. If you made it this far, thank you for reading. I am just so irritated about this all, and needed to vent to someone who may understand!
