    Just got back into wedding planning after moving cities to start my first job after grad school.


    FYI - I found Deanna Schaeffer from I Do Weddings to be extremely rude.  I've started interviewing wedding coordinators by phone and found her to be very condescending.  I gave her the times I was available to speak, and she called me anyway at a time when I couldn't talk to her - while I was at work.  When I called her back after work, he constantly interrupted me while I was trying to ask questions and at one point told me that she "only works with brides who are professionals and are very busy".  Apparently after I mentioned grad school, she figured she couldn't make enough money off me. She told me that she'd have someone else contact me to handle my "little" wedding since she already had a 200-guest wedding to do on my day.  She said despite my "skinny budget" she'll still have her "associate" contact me.  It was such a horrible experience speaking to her, I will not be dealing with her company.


    Dianna Gardner from Alohana Weddings was nice.  But I found that she didn't follow through with the initial contact I had with her, where she said she'd forward a copy of the contract for me to review.  So it looks like other reviews of her on the site in terms of being bad at keeping in touch was true.


    Kaye from Maile Weddings has been great.  She's very organized and just gives off a very warm, friendly vibe.
