My Experience at the Florist: Take 1

So we met with the florist today... or who I thought was going to be the florist...

Our experience started with getting completely lost. My mom and I drove around for forever looking for this place. The address was 5745 yet all we saw was 5794 and then the numbers got higher and higher. Well, little did we know that if we kept going then the rapidly increasing numbers would start to decrease again. Makes sense, right? NOT.

So, anyways, we found the place. I was recommended this particular florist because they were really cheap did an amazing job at my FSIL's wedding. Right when I walked in, I knew I had made a big mistake. The first word that the woman uttered was in the most thick Russian accent.

I met the other florist before, and this was definitely NOT her.

So I began telling the woman that I wanted to have baby's breath bouquets for my lovely ladies. She had the most unpleasant look on her face and all she could say was "oh." Then I showed her pictures that I had brought, but that did not change her mind. She was disgusted by my baby's breath choice.


It was definitely not what I was expecting. I absolutely LOVE the look and feel of baby's breath bouquets. Whatever... It is their loss.

I have an appointment on Saturday morning with the REAL florist. Hopefully we will have better luck! :)

Take care until next time,

You just dodged a bullet with them.

Sounds like my exact first florist meeting except remove the russian accent and insert a bitchy attitude. We went with one cause it was a mutual friend of a family member. Although the price was good, she was not seeing my vision or understanding what i wanted. She was very quick to say "this cant work and you cant do that" but had no solutions as to how to change it. We were going to use them anyway but after no contract (after waiting 3 weeks, and no return calls back) My wedding planner then took me to the florist she used for her wedding and it was sooo great.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE your idea of babies breath bouquets. Everything will work out and it will be great!

Do what YOU want and don't let anyone talk you out of it! Sounds like a good thing that you aren't using them.
