This week’s question:

How do I tell a vendor “no”?

“I recently met with 2 different photographers – and after meeting with them it was a clear decision for my fiance and I on who we wanted to go with. I have a really hard time letting people down and feel bad after someone spends the time to meet with me and answer questions through email. I also like to have options and want to meet with more than one vendor. With the planning just starting I know this will come up again with florists, rental items etc. I know this is part of their job but I’m having a hard time with it.”
