More crazy pills….Banquet hall

31 May

Unhappy Bride to Banquet hall: “Can we go into the banquet hall the day before to decorate it? We are getting married on a Friday and assume no one will be using it on Thursday or Wednesday. Can we go in then?”

 Banquet hall to Unhappy Bride: “If there are no functions booked you can come in the night before.” The end.

Really? What did I say to you in my email? Do you plan on telling me whether someone else is using the freaking room or not? How about actually answering the question? Answering the phone would be nice too.

    We get the same story from the venues when we go in to decorate. All they care about is that they now have your money and to h— with anybody or anything else. Now you know why decorators can be so expensive. You quote a bride a certain price then find out you have only 3 hours to set up so you hire 3-44 xtra people to get it done and there goes the decorators profit if any, sometimes they break even, and even other times you lose money. Everyone is at the venues mercy, and they don’t give a damn…..

      Wow, how incredibly annoying! Losing money, that’s terrible. Does it happen more often than not? Is it worth going into the decorator business?

        You don’t lose money often, but it has happened. I wouldn’t suggest going into the decor business unless you have something set up with a venue as their in-house decorator or perhaps set a minimum charge. Lots has changed in the wedding industry and it is expensive to keep your inventory up-to-date with the latest trends.
