Maybe this is a blessing!  Call around for florists!  Or, worst case scenario, you hit up a farmers market or get on the phone with Whole Foods and see what they can whip up for you.  Flower party on Friday night/Saturday of the wedding?  It’ll be okay!

@JBing: Just what I was going to say!

I had a hard time following that conversation because the dates seem to be a little mixed up.  When she says “we are unable to order what you need,” is it possible that she meant the flowers you wanted are literally unavailable (like out of season and/or can’t be ordered)?  Or did she mean that she can’t fulfill your request because of money?  I’m confused.  Undecided  I don’t see anything you said that could have offended her.

So sorry. I think she just panicked and she sounds very unprofessional anyway. I know you’re freakin out but this is actually a good thing so she doesn’t flake on you the day of the wedding! Like PPs said, florists are a dime a dozen so do some research and I wish you luck. Sending good florist vibes your way!

@CupCakeMeg: You being in California is definitely an advantage!  Check out local farmers markets; they always have gorgeous flowers on the cheap.  Maybe you could even ask one of the flower vendors there if they do any florist work on the side and could arrange bouquets for you?  (If not, you and friends/family could pull them together, too!)

Don’t freak out!  It will all work out.  Smile

ACK! Like others said, this might be a blessing in disguise. She sounds really flaky. :p

Good luck at the farmer’s market!

Naturally I can’t find it, but a few weeks ago, I pinned this brilliant suggestion from Martha Stewart mag to box the components for each centerpiece in their own tub, and add a photo of what it’s supposed to look like. If your bridesmaids are helping, this would be a huge timesaver.

@CupCakeMeg: Lol me too! That’s actually how i’m doing it. I found a girl who is highly recommended and she works from home so she doesn’t have the extra cost of a store front so her prices were unbeatable!
