I think I need to find a new hair and MUA but I don't know if I'm being unreasonable in my expectations or not. The one I've booked is just...she's coming across as really really flaky and I just really don't want to be dealing with that. The important thing to know is that no money has changed hands yet but I'm 2 months out from the wedding and most of the other MUA seem to be already booked (or really expensive!)
I found her on WW and she has really good reviews, so I messaged her. She took about a week to message back but I figured that was fine because I asked specific questions about the ingredients in the make up and I thought it would take time to find the information.
But then it seems like taking her sweet time responding to emails is her MO. I emailed her on April 1st, waited 2 weeks without a response, emailed her again and finally got an answer a couple of days later. I respond within 24 hours (because I'm trying to get this all sorted out) and yet again have to wait a week and half for her reply. In our last exchange I even mentioned I was getting nervous because she hadn't responded for almost two weeks.
Earlier in the piece, we'd set up a trial later this month. There was numerous emails about the trial, but then when she sent me her email address for the e-transfer, she asks if I wanted a trial as though she'd completely forgotten the half a dozen emails we sent back and forth setting the date for the trial - that were in fact all part of the same email thread she had responded to!
I just don't feel like I'll be able to relax until she's actually at the hotel doing my hair and make up and I don't want that crap on my wedding day. I don't know, am I being unreasonable able how long it's taking her to respond to simple questions? How do you fire a vendor? Do you go the simply route of we're going in a different direction? Is it easier just to lie and say you had to move/cancel the wedding? Do you tell them the truth about why you're dumping them?
When it comes down to it, my problem is basically she's not responding as fast as I think she should be.
