    @mokara723:My bouquet had gorgeous orchids in it, and my hair and my MOH’s hair. They lasted fine but it wasn’t that hot.

     

    ALSO, we did not even bring the bouquets to the reception. Huh.

    Im in Florida and I grow orchids and the temps here are over 90 degree for the whole summer… they are tropical plants… as long as they are not in direct sunlight they will be fine.

    Also, I would bring a spray bottle with water and just lightly mist them about 20 minutes before and then after your pics so they look the freshest.

    They will be fine.

    @mokara723:  Ohhhh…bummer that you won’t be getting the exact flowers you were dreaming of having.  However, cymidium’s are absolutely gorgeous too!  (I would ask for some sort of discount, since there may be a price difference and with such late notice).

    Call me a skeptic but… sounds a little fishy. First she tries to convince you not to use them and then now all the sudden they didnt make it through customs?

    Are you sure its not because she just forgot to order them and/or ordered the wrong ones? hmmmm.

    I agree with the other bee… I would ask for a discount!

    The good news is that I think cymbidium orchids are prettier & hardier than phalaenopsis anyway so I know your bouquet is going to be gorgeous!

    @mokara723:That sucks bad!  I agree– ask for a discount.

     

    And what krystal.keel said is right, your new orchids are hardier (that’s the kind I had, too).

    Do you have a contract with her? Breach of contract is a serious deal–tell her you’re considering a small claims court filing, unless she can provide you with evidence both that she ordered the flowers at the price she claims and that they were not permitted by customs. There should be proof of both of those things. If she can’t provide it, a) file a Better Business Bureau complaint and b) think about small claims court. One of my friends won a judgment against a crazy landlady, and it made the rest of her time at that apartment WAY less insane.
