We have booked our wedding flowers with a company, but today details came from the local registry office that said that we would be entitled to a discount with the lady that we have booked with.
The info said the discount needed to be asked for at time of booking, which we didnt do so I emailed her and asked her if we would still be entitled to it etc.
she replied a little snotty to be honest, as we also booked chair covers with her she gave us a small discount on the chair covers as we have done a dual booking with her.
anyway in response to my email she reminded me of this and also said that she had given us table runners for free and that we needed to ask at the time of booking.
fine fine fine, im not that fussed about 10%, but now im worried that iv upset her and she wont do as good a job on our flowers as she would have done if i hadnt annoyed her!
do you think people would be so petty or i shouldnt worry about it? as i am now a little worried!

have you read any reviews of her? I think if she’s a fairly well respected vendor then she isn’t going to risk her reputation being vindictive.

@tinkerbell_83: I really think she’ll do the same quality job as she would have done if you hadn’t mentioned the discount. Whenever she sends something out from her shop or company, she is well aware that her name basically is on it. So don’t worry. All Florists want is for you to be happy with their work.

I don’t think she’ll do a lesser job, you may want to email her and thank her for clearing it up and you’re really looking forward to her work. Should you have to do this? No. But it’s nice.
Sometimes a vendor will have a few bad clients and some clients think everything is negotiable and don’t know when to stop (which always boggles my mind. Once you get a “no” you either decide it’s okay or take your business elsewhere). She may have been being stern so it doesn’t turn into a debate.

I agree with Maureen. Might be best to just let her know that you totally understand, thought it never hurts to ask, and look forward to seeing her work.
