I spent the last few days dodging the calls of what I feared would be a very agitated mariachi band leader. This was silly behavior – I know better: being direct and honest is always the best policy.
A big corporation booked the mariachis for a charity event, and the band did not invoice the company until two days prior. Unfortunately, in Corporate America, accounts payable departments are usually not staffed by magical gnomes.
I avoided the message from the band leader, and the legend of The Angry Mariachi grew in my head. I finally faced my big-girl clipboard, made the call and explained that I simply didn’t know when the check would get cut. Surprise! As long as they knew what was going on, they were OK.
Long story short, both Planners and Brides, keep your vendors in the loop. And don’t work yourselves up imagining problems you don’t have.
