Just call the guy you spoke to at the florists and only deal with him!  Make an appointment next time and work with him.  That girl sounds like she doesn’t know what she is doing.  I’m sure when you work with that guy it will be fine.  Or you can tell your grandma you are not having flowers unless she pays for them! 🙂

Everything else, just relax! Rings are easy and a decision can be made in a day!  Same for groomsmens outfits.  Menu and cake chosing will be fun and easy.  Just remember, NO ONE will notice the little details you think they will.  Take a step back and remember it’s just one day that people hype up.  You will get done what you NEED to, and the rest won’t be important as long as you are married at the end of the day!

What about working with a local food market like Whole Foods? It’s far cheaper than a florist boutique and they do an amazing job. You could save a ton of money- it sounds like what you want should be in the $1000-$2,000 range.

That situation would frustrate me too. I have a hard time dealing with people like that.  I would call back and talk to the guy you originally spoke with. I think it will help ease your mind.

Oh I know how you feel.  FI walked off his job today because someone insulted him about his family.  I know I’m going to sound bitchy but I wanted to tell him that he needs to get over it and people are going to say things to piss him off no matter what but we are getting married in 3 months and need his paycheck.  I just about lost it.  I have paid for almost everything by myself so far and FI has paid 500 down on our reception and we are 3 months out.  We have a lot of things to pay for yet and I have no idea where the money is going to come from.  FI’s job is still his after talking to his boss (thank God) but his family hasn’t given us a dime (I knew they couldn’t afford to anyways but they could at least say something about it).  ugh sorry I’m venting too.  This is too stressful and then you have the people that say oh well we got married in two weeks notice.  It does make you feel bad. 

My advice to you is the same as the pp…meet with the guy you met with before!
