@littlemiss511:  Oh honey, that’s really too bad.  And I understand that you’re upset, but I cannot for the life of me imagine that this vendor wouldn’t want to do business with you if they had the time and resources to do so.  It took them a week to reply, that’s an indicator of just how busy they are, and honestly, I would rather have someone  say, “I would love to help you, but I know that I can’t.” instead of taking my money, and either doing a terrible job or telling me that they won’t be able to honor the arrangement when it’s too late to find someone else.

I know this is terrible, but you still have time to find an alternative.

Just remember, the same reasons you let the flowers slip your mind can be the same reasons why someone doesn’t return an e-mail promptly. Breaaaaatttthhheeee. It will all work out.

 

 

Honestly, I don’t think we should be required to respond to text messages and e-mails as quickly as most people think. I almost wish we could go back to the days of just paper mail.

@littlemiss511:  I’m so sorry that this happened to you.  However, if I think it’s a very good  thing that she realized NOW, not weeks from now, that she simply cannot accommodate your wedding. Some vendors would not want to lose the business and would try to make a deadline they weren’t sure they could meet.  At least she did not do that to you.

I don’t know where you live but many supermarkets have floral depts that do amazing jobs!

@littlemiss511:  I think that sometimes it just comes with the territory of going through Etsy and not a brick-and-mortar business.  I’m so sorry, but at least you have some advance warning of this.

Better that she was honest with younow, than making a promise she could not keep.
