bride is complaining (really really long) - Page 10

post #136 of 144
it isn't so much a 'forgot to' kind of thing as a 'cut it so late the hall was empty of guests' kind of thing.

I went to a wedding recently where the ceremony was at 3pm and the cake wasn't served until close to 8pm. What is with that? icon_confused.gif Anyone with a sitter had already left. There was a thread ongoing about that same subject recently.
Sorry, you delayed and your company left, not my fault...no refund.

Yes, I was told they had their pictures taken with the cake and forget about the cake until the reception was at an end..I guess it just got put to the side of the gift table and after the meal, staff re-arranged the room for the dance and it was forgotten ! It wasn't dessert, so I guess you could do that..

So Jill - did you ever hear from her lawyer? Or did she shut up about it?

Nope, haven't heard hide nor hair (I have no idea if that is how the saying is spelled icon_redface.gif )

I'm not sure if she's given up or if I'll get a small claims court summons, but I am sure I'll fight it if I do.

Good! Hopefully, she's just going to drop it!

Ugh. This is one of those "everybody take notes" kind of situations. The bride sounds totally fishy to me and given the current economic situation don't be surprised to see more of this! If she won't offer you photographic proof and/or names of people you can actually TALK TO IN PERSON/OVER THE PHONE, then no dice. Your other solution is to offer her a fraction of her money back, like 10%. Sadly, your name and reputation are at stake here. Lastly, as the daughter of a lawyer, everyone should think about having a contract of some sort that the client signs which explicitly states that once the cake is in their hands, anything that happens to it is their responsibility. You could even add a clause about an extra charge for any cake doctoring you might have to do onsite. Obviously, if you didn't have this available to at the time she signed on with you, you won't be able to incite those rules, but I think it behooves ALL of us bakers out there to do this! And apologies if someone mentioned this already. It just really riled me to hear your story; I can't abide people who try to weasel their way out of a service by badmouthing others. Although karma will probably find a way to wreak it's vengeance on her! Your cake was beautiful by the way!

Excellent idea. I saw one bakery contract that had this .... $100 per hour if they had to come out and fix a cake, with a 2 hour minimum and a credit card had to be given to them over the phone before they even left the shop.
