Wedding Planners Not Responding

Recommended Posts

I need help! This July (2010) I am getting married. We will be staying at HHV. I have contacted 3 wedding planners. Each time, I talked with the planner, I schedule a date, time and place and then send a deposit. Then, when I email or call them with a question, they do not return my emails or phone calls! What am I doing wrong? I don't have a lot of money to pay more than $1000 for my wedding. Does anyone have a planner they have used that returned emails and calls, will not steal my money and under $1000?

I first tried alohaforeverweddings.com. I talked with Diane to set up everything, but she never followed through with sending me my confirmation info. I then tried islandromancewedding.com (Mai Wilkes). I sent her a $100 deposit and now she will not return my calls or emails. I then tried hawaiiweddings.net, I would send question emails and they would respond the next day. I thought I finally found the right company. However, since I have sent them my $75 deposit, they will not return my emails or phone calls.

How many days has it been since they've contacted you? I know sometimes when I talk with some of the WCs it takes them up to a week to respond to me.

 

I do not have any experience with any of those companies, but if they have your money, they should be responding to you in some way. All I can say is keep trying and if no one responds, you can always let them know that you're filing a complaint with the Better Business Bureau (and then do so.)

 

I, personally, have not used any of the Hawaii wedding websites or dealt with their WCs. I am currently using destinationweddings.com which serves as a travel agent. However, they do recommend wedding companies to clients if asked. The two that were recommended to me on Oahu are:

 

Oahu Weddings by A Fairy Tale Wedding Honolulu Hawaii

 

and

 

A Dream Wedding Hawaii provides Oahu, Hawaii destination wedding planning info. & coord. services

 

I ended up using a different venue entirely, so I never really went through these WCs. However, I assume that if another company is recommending them, then they should be pretty legit.

 

I really hope that helps out some, and I feel so bad that things aren't working out for you! Let me know how everything goes and I can try to help out if you need it.

I can highly recommend Dianna at Hawaii weddings and events.

 

hawaiiweddingsandevents.com

 

She is my day-of wedding co-ordinator as I have planned most of my wedding details myself and just need her to take over closer to the wedding and day-of.

 

Check her out :)

We are using Best Bridal Hawaii. I have had no issues and they usually respond quickly. I know they do the weddings in the Chapel at HHV and the Gazebo, but I think they also do beachside weddings. You should check. I think they have some very inexpensive packages.

Best Bridal Hawaii is PHENOMENAL! They usually have specials going on if you check their website, and their customer service is just amazing. They are true professionals & if we ever have a vow renewal sometime down the road, they will be our #1 choice :)

    • I think I fhttp://www.cigarjamaica.com/ound what you're looking for: 
    • My parents divorced quite recently, just few years ago after being rather unhappily married for 26 years. My mom caught him cheating. I got engaged a few months ago and a month later with little notice my father married the woman who he was with when my mom caught him. I live in a different country so only met her and her family a few times, they were very nice to me, my father is very happy. I am polite / neutral with her. On the contrary my mom is not doing great at all, she is still in a complete breakdown and a month after engagement she made a scene that she does not want my father at my wedding and hang up on me. When she found out i speak to his new partner she refused to talk to me ever again. It’s been a couple of month now, i tried to reach out but she blocked me. My mom is not really a very reasonable type, i try to take care of her and cheer her up but I cant just sit and talk to her peacefully, it is always a drama when it comes to my father. My grandparents are on her side. I mentioned to my father that i will not be inviting his wife as i don’t feel comfortable making the whole situation much worse and also because i really dont know her well to which he said that he may not be coming then. What do I do about it? It looks like it maybe the case that neither of my parents will come or if my father comes with his wife i may never be able to fix the relationship with my mother....
    • I'm so excited to finally, after 9 years, getting married again!  He's so amazing and we want to have an amazing wedding in Jamaica next year.  Allow me to introduce myself:  I am Katherine,  his grandchildren will call me KitKat! who is marrying a minister that truly leaves me speechless at times the way he loves and cares for me.  Professionally, I am a destination wedding planner/travel agent/award-winning floral designer, so this wedding will be my ENCORE.  Last night, we started out with 50 guests, relatively the larger size of most destination weddings.  Then our guest list grew to 100.  Right! My team right now, does have a contact in Jamaica, that I'm already working with. We are working on the budget, constantly.  The plan is to have all of the details together before Thanksgiving holiday, so that family and friends can prepare to start booking.
