"Don't panic, there is always a solution. We'll help you find it."
Realistically you will never be able to fully research, each vendor and must rely on reviews and advice. Despite your first impression and "good feelings", you may end up hiring one that you find particularly hard to deal with over time. What do you do? Refer to the Chinese proverb “The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.” Since you cannot go back in time, look closely at the terms and conditions portion of the contract you signed, typically there is a non refundable portion. Here is where you have to decide, is it worth being out $200-$1000 to preserve your sanity..or is the loss too large for you? Don't put this off because as more time lapses you could enter into the cancellation period, where excessive fees come into play. Like I always say...(don't shoot me) DO YOUR HOMEWORK! We may not be planting a tree, but we ARE planning a wedding. It is already too late to do more research, you're now in damage control. This may very well be the first financial crisis that you both can tackle together. Make a list of pros and cons. Decide together, is the "loss" really a loss or a small fee for a valuable lesson? I like to think positively about any situation so chalk it up to lesson learned and do your due diligence the next time. We'll be here for your anniversary planning.
