- Wedding: July 2010
So basically, I booked my florist way back in September. FH and I suffer from mild hayfever and we don’t have a huge budget to allocate for flowers so we arranged for a woman to make up our bouquets/bouts from natural touch silk flowers. She’s based in the USA and we’re in the UK.
We’ve already paid and signed the contract. The florist is super nice and has been really good at contacting me whenever I’ve written to her. The only thing is, she hasn’t sent us any photos of what she’s made. I understand that she runs a business and she has other brides to cater to before me, but my flowers are meant to be shipped on May 14th, 2 weeks from today, and I haven’t heard from her since Feb when I asked for an update and she replied, “All is going to schedule”.
I don’t want to seem like a pushy bride but I’m also concerned that I haven’t heard from her and I haven’t seen any pictures or had any updates in 3 months. Am I overreacting? This is pretty much the only aspect of the wedding that I don’t have some sort of control over and I stage manage theatre for a living so I’m pretty used to being the centre of planning and communication.
Should I give it until a week before the expected ship date and email her again? Should I just leave it? I’m overreacting aren’t I? Sorry, I just need some outside eyes on this one. FH is starting to glaze over whenever I mention flowers now.
