Creative Events of Dallas Complaint - Being ripped off by Creative Events of Dallas

Review by bat2420 on 2007-07-26
DALLAS, TEXAS -- A friend of mine scheduled her wedding for this upcoming November with Creative Events of Dallas (Creative ways to rip you off). Her Fiancé called off the wedding 5 months and 3 weeks before the wedding and she called to cancel the arrangements. She had paid $1500.00 as a 25% deposit. The contract did state that a 6 month notice was required however Creative person (not to be named) informed her that she would not be charged and would send her a final bill for the invitations and date announcements but nothing more. Two weeks passed and then she sent a demand for all monies on the contract to be paid in full immediately. When my friend tried to contact her back to discuss the situation and to inform her that she had someone else that would assume the contract in her place for the SAME DATE she was informed that she could not do that. Creative personnel also input the wrong numbers on the contract as far as balances owed and in fact had reserved the wrong date for the facility in the demand letter. My friend also never received the invitations. She is in the process of taking her to small claims court and reporting her to the BBB. Stay clear of this lady as she lies and in fact does not know how to spell as can be attested to by her email responses to my friend and in the contract. Its called spell check. Try it!

Why didn't your "friend" write this review?? You almost make it sound as if it's really your situation.

She took a verbal agreement over the written agreement. She has no ground to stand on that one. Most contracts are Non-Transferable. Anyway, if it's written as a 6 month cancellation notice, then 6 months it is...sorry, but that's the agreement she made. She should sue her Ex-Fiancé' for the money since he called it off. The only rip-off I see is your friend trying to rip them off.

She doesn`t have a problem not getting back her deposit but they are wanting the full amount for services including but not limited to a Policeman for the event, food which will never be served, service staff which will never be used along with all the decorations which woul ddput Creative in a position better than when the agreement was signed since they don`t have to pay for any of those cost. I addition they tried to charge her sales tax on a Deposit which is non taxable. Creative had Booked the Reception place for the wrong date anyway so what would have happened if they did go through with the wedding! It sound like you might be a rep from Creative or in the same shaddy biz yourself. I would recommend anyone considering hiring an event Coordinator for anything to check with the BBB for complaints filed and Consumer Boards like this one.

To the other who Posted earlier her Finace` just got cold feet.

I am anohter person that was ripped off by this con artist. Deceptive sales practice is only the beginning of the horrible customer service we received. This is just a warning to everyone out there...Be Careful and don't give them a dime, even if it sounds wonderful, it is not. This has been a nightmare to deal with.
