On the day of my Wedding, my photographer failed to show up...

I recently heard about a Wedding someone attended, and about an hour before the Wedding, the Photographer had not showed up, The ones getting married called him, "Where are you...? " 
He replied, "You asked me for a quote for and a photography package, I emailed you the information, and you never got back to me. I didn't know I was photographing your Wedding!"  On such an important day, their memories are now in the hands of guests who used their Ipads, and phones to take photos. Not good. 

This is not just happening with Photography. Florists are being called 1 week before the Wedding, " When are my Flowers going to be delivered..?" Florist replies, "You're not on my list of August Brides, who are you?" Same story, The  Bride emailed for a quote and thought that a reply meant she had booked a Florist. When hiring a professional for your Wedding, make sure you have signed a contract, AND PAID A DEPOSIT. 

Flowers take time to prepare, there is no Easy button, every piece is designed especially for your Wedding.
