    so wedding planning is stressful ladies lol and my OH is a fab support i must say and we have argued a few times...but im stuck with eternal dilemas.

    I signed the paperwork with my venue to include them to get 70 covers and sashes at 4.95 a pop and the same company who will supply these i seen at their wedding fair - and they done my makeup. needless to say i cried and ended up like a clown. Now i've no faith in them to have any part in my day or do my covers/sashes and im now actually realising the price is way to much.

    Our contact at the hotel has been good so far - my OH can be very good at winning her over. Im now thinking of scrapping the company and finding my own who will do it for cheaper and ask her to amend the paperwork (we can order more food etc so they wont loose the money)....

    am i within my right to do this or is it pushing liberties. she knows im not happy with the company after the make up viasco. But at a fiver a chair thats like 350 i could put to more resorceful use. I did kinda make a hurried decision with them, but after my makeup (and btw im still waiting a wk later on my table centre quote from them) ive no faith in them.

    my head spinnin

    (aside from this we're having lots of dilemas all cos i think wayyyyyy to much on everything )

    help ladies

    It is stressful isn't it!! Lol
    Have you paid a deposit yet? If not then u can still back out but even if you have paid a deposit go and talk to the venue and say that you have had a cheaper price as that does very expensive and you also don't have a good feeling about them and want to change, do it sooner rather than later. If you have a gut feeling follow it, I have relied on my gut for everything and so far touch wood it's doing ok lol. X
