    Its a progression. 

    First you need to have a discussion with the manager your problems and be specific about what you are looking for and by when (a couple days).  I would ask that someone else help you with the coordination of any future items as well. 

    Meanwhile, look elsewhere. If they cannot get you what you need, then you need move the celebration to a new venue.

    I would complain. I would also ask the coordinator what the total cost is if there are no flowers. That should give you a ball park minimum. Then ask her how much the florist could be. And decide if you will still have flowers. I would probably hire an outside florist (assuming the contract allows that) and use the venue for everything else. If she still can’t give you the total cost without flowers, I would consider switching venues.

    @Hbomb84:  

    Yikes, poor thing. Only 50 days to go and all this is happening? I’d be insane. I solidified my total cost months ago (wedding is Nov 3) although maybe because I’m doing DW it’s different. You need to get this confirmed and fast. If she’s not willing to give you the pricing go above her. I would think that it’s too late to change venues by now so maybe you can strong arm her into cooperating? Ugh, good luck hunny bunch that sounds awful.
