So there is this vendor who I contacted and I was so excited about I made an appointment to set up a consultation so she can drape decorate etc. When we met it was at books a million and she was 30 minutes late when I called she didn't answer the first time then I emailed then called again she then answered all while my fiance like why are we at a book store. So she picked up and said the meeting is at 3 I say no ma'am I received confirmation from your secretary it's at 2pm so she looked after telling me I was wrong then said I'm sorry I'm never late I'm on my way she gets there like 2:35 and introduce herself she came with her husband no problem we started talking after a slow bad start from the mixup of being late. The way how she was talking I thought we were going to proceed she took pictures of my sketches told me to call and make arrangements to see my venue when we get done with throwing our engagement party because we told her about that everything seemed cool. I knew I would get an estimate when she saw the venue. So after our meeting I texted her the colors like she asked and she was like it's been a pleasure talking with us I thought everything was going well. After our engagement party I tried contacting her no answer I called no answer I left messages no answer I texted again about seeing my venue no answer. I start looking at other vendors because at this time I feel like she ghosted me three weeks after I texted her she's posting on Facebook and Instagram about how they servicing every bride we love our brides etc etc I really feel some type of way. If you didn't want to do business with me I wish she never took pictures of my sketches like she was going to proceed with me it feels like she was going to steal my ideas for a upcoming wedding. She still haven't messaged back I'm so mad what should I do because I definitely want to confront her.
I’m sorry this happened to you! It is very odd that she wanted to meet at a book store and not at the venue so she could already see it in that moment and bounce ideas from your sketches.. I would not contact her again because even if she does reply she may flake out again on you 😕 I would keep doing what you are and look for a new vendor 😊 good luck!

I know which I was going to write a review but I just don't know I'll probably wait til I get all my vendors first now she did mention she pick and chooses who she does work with but why take pictures of my work like you are going to help me so stealing my ideas if you knew you had no intentions on working with me
My advice is to not write a review because I have seen similar reviews and it seems like it can get ugly (just my opinion). Instead write her an email about how you feel and detail your experience with her and let her go. I'm really sorry this happened.
I would just move on. Definitely don’t hire her, but there’s so many other things to stress about with wedding planning, don’t let a vendor who let you know up front how obnoxious they are get you so upset. Think of it as a gift that you learned this before signing a contract.
