    Wow – what a crazy lady. Who tries to hassle the bride like that? So sorry.

    Wow… just wow.  Our florist was litterally a ninja.  She was in and out of the church prior to us even getting there, leaving everything in the fridge at the church refridgertor like we aranged.  The day of my wedding we didn’t see her.

    I had some… reservations about our DJ prior to our wedding.  Our only phone conversation, he kept me on the phone for an hour and told some very inappropriate stories.  Including a story about a down the shorts picture he took at a friend’s wedding.  Not something you EVER want to hear from a wedding vender.  I was in full panic book mode, though because we had 5 other venders turn us down that week for already being booked.   At our wedding, though, he got some of the best comments because he kept the music to conversation level and played a lot of the stuff that we liked including downloading an obsecure song that DH and I wanted to dance to at the end of the night.

    Wow–that is insanely crazy! So sorry you had to deal with that. I can’t even imagine–our florist was the so utterly professional–plus we didn’t even see them at all. They literally set everything up, checked with my parents that it was all good and left. How weird that she was sticking herself into your whole day! Really unprofessional.

    marriedMKE:  Wow, how crazy!  Although, that photobomber can be photoshopped out, although it would likely be time consuming.  Trust me, I teach Photoshop 😉

    My florist was the pigeon sh*tting on my picnic too!!!

    I had three bridesmaids. Three. Can you count to 3? It’s not that high of a number; I assume most people could handle it. But we show up at the venue on the day of the wedding and the florist comes up to ME — the BRIDE — to announce that I screwed up and so she only has two bridesmaid bouquets. WTF?! I’ve had three bridesmaids since the moment I got engaged. At no point did I ever tell you there were only two. You’re just an idiot. So she had to divide the two bouquets into three, and steal flowers from the ceremony bouquet.

    She was also short by two centerpieces. I think this lady must have had a stroke or something because that’s the only reasonable explanation for not being able to count to ten or three.

    But the thing I was most pissed about was how she marched up to me on the morning of my wedding with a bunch of attitude to tell me that I had fucked up. No, bitch, YOU did. My MOH saw my fury and dragged me away quickly while my sister argued with her and she got to work throwing together a couple more centerpieces. We go to my wedding venue (a winery) fairly often now, and every time I see her van outside (she does the flowers for most of the weddings held there), I want to give her a slap.

    So OP, you and I are florist-slappin’ sisters!

    My goodness! I don’t know why your florist even thought she should BE there besides giving you the flowers and maybe setting some up!! That’s crazy!

    I would have been furious that she stayed in the room and got in the middle of the last moments before walking down the aisle. How rude of her, she had no business being there at all. Sometimes people are so clueless you are forced to be blunt to get the point across. The only thing I would forgive is the whole “bringing up family issues on the wedding day.” It doesn’t seem unreasonable to double check whether she needed 2 boutonnières, and family issues weren’t really her concern. Overall, I’m glad you enjoyed your day and I hope you give her feedback especially on trying to step in and arrange the train or put on your veil. As a vendor she should know that is not her place.

    marriedMKE:  It is imperative that you post this review on yelp and weddingwire.  A vendor must be accountable for their actions and thankfully the internet gives the power to the customer.  I take reviews very seriously and I know how they can make or break a business so when I get good service I make sure they get one hell of a good review.

    im actually pretty angry for you

    marriedMKE:  good.  Be aware that she will probably dispute you on wedding wire.  It happened to me.  WW reaches out to you and asks for proof of their services.  my guess is that lots of people don’t bother with this so they ignore it and ww takes down your review (this is why ww has near perfect reviews). I made sure I proved it and they kept my review up
