i'm a pretty laid back person and always bend over backwards taking last minute orders when I'm covered up, running late, any number of things.
I'm not quite sure what to do in this situation.
I have a signed contract for wedding cake. half of total was due Feb 28th. didn't pay. I contacted bride about something else and mentioned it casually. (her dad is paying) she said she would get with him and email when it was sent.
Total was due March 26th, dad called me and told me I could pick up check or he would mail. I'm busy and they don't live close, told him to mail.
That was last weekend, 8 days ago. If he had mailed when he said he would, I would have the money.
This is a BIG cake, with a BIG price. I've turned down a bunch of cakes for that weekend already.
I honestly at this point just want out (I think)
Would you email them and would you just cancel, would you give them one more chance? Would love your input on what to do without ruining my rep. I don't want someone coming and saying 'oh I didn't get my cake'.
