Warning up front, this is another wedding post. I love I have ordered everything from yarns and fibers to pillows for the bedroom from here. In fact, I have a good business relationship with a British photographer,Tiinateaspoon, because of the site. It was a no brainer to look at etsy for gifts for the bridesmaids and groomsmen. I found a great seller who makes fantastic jewelry, and she quickly made four necklaces for the bridesmaids in the wedding colors. Sean and I tried to avoid the traditional type of groomsmen gift like cufflinks, beer or alcohol glasses, but it quickly became April and he had no clue what to give the guys. I turned to the same seller and convo'd her about making four sets of groomsmen cufflinks to match the necklaces. She didn't get back to me, so I just bought the guys package of cufflinks for the groom and groomsmen at $150 for 5 pairs of cufflinks, $30 each. She was great in communication and sent off my order.
The order arrived today with only 4 pairs of cufflinks and a gift for the bride. I had looked at buying one of her hair pieces, so she gave me one. I contacted her saying I loved the four sets we received and to see about getting the groom's pair. I didn't mention the financial reason for the message, but I paid for five, we really don't have money to waste with me not working. I'm now wondering if I did the right thing; I feel sick about this. There is a large part of me that wants to receive what I paid for, a smaller part of me doesn't want to rock the boat. I have a good business relationship with the seller and don't want to ruin it.
Does anyone have any advice for me?
This may not have been an issue if I hadn't received so many you are great but others were better for this job notices this week.
