Cheap Bride...this is ridiculous...what would you have done? - Page 10

Sorry guys, I didn't know that this thread was still active, I hadn't gotten a notice on your responses. Anyway, to catch you up, after she sent me that e-mail she ended up calling me and I agreed to do it, I know I am a sucker but I insisted that told hold her date I needed a $200 deposit. She asked for my address and said she would be sending it out. I sent her a flavor list and told her that when I got her check I would call and we could set up a tasting...of course a few weeks past and no check. I emailed her an told her I hadn't received anything, and I had another bride interested in that date, but since she had come to me first I wanted to check with her once more. She e-mailed me back that I should give that date to the other bride because they were making it themselves. I just wrote back no problem and if she ever needed my services in the future she could contact me. I am happy that it turned out that way, because she prob. would have caused more problems for me. She was so wishy washy and just a handful...it is probably best it happened that way and by the way, if she ever contacts me again, I will just respond that I am booked.

Thanks,
Sarah

It sounds like that was for the best! I mean she couldn't send you an email telling you that she had changed her mind about the cake?

And a homemade cake, made by people who don't make cakes? Ummm...it sounds like it might belong on cake wrecks.

I am dying to see that cake! WOuld love to be a fly on the wall! Kills me how people plan a marriage but don't budget for the cake. And now bloggers say you don't need cake, have a bunch of candy and brownies and crap. I love the whole cake ceremony, and the pictures.
Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

As I tell my brides, it's as much of a wedding ceremony as the garter toss, the kiss after the I Do's, the first dance. etc.
