I guess mostly this post is so I can vent some frustration, but any advice would be greatly appreciated 🙂
I booked my decorator/florist back in June of this year for my wedding which is now less than 2 months away. Today I get an EMAIL from her saying that she is now going on vacation and can’t do my wedding!
Everything was going so smoothly until then – Now I am super stressed. How am I going to find a new florist and decorator, or to buy decorations and decorate myself. I havn’t bought anything since I was expecting her to take care of it all. She was supposed to do the table runners, the centerpieces the lighting and ALL of the flowers, the bouquets – EVERYTHING!
I have no idea what to do!

@chelleyray: Holy crap, you didn’t have a contract? Thankfully I think two months is enough time to find someone else.

@chelleyray: OMG! That is almost the last thing you need right now.
Did you have a contract? If so, I hope it states what the penalty is for default on her part.
Other than that, time to take a deep breath and move on.
Are there other florists/decorators/wedding planners/party planners where you live?
The linens are really no big deal. If you have to, you can easily rent those yourself.
So that leaves flowers. Priorize getting a florist.
As long as you have bouquets and centerpieces of some sort, that’s all you really need.
Come back if you decide to do anything yourself. There are many Bees who can help.
