How long have you been talking to the florist!?!? My very first in person meeting was going over in detail what flowers specifically I wanted for what so she could write up a budget for me.

What have you picked out with her? Colors or anything? I personally would be freaking out since I’ve personally placed such a big emphasis on flowers and decor for my wedoing. So you continued to pay her without a vision or specifics?

I’d call her and demand this meeting asap.

If she doesn’t answer emails, go to her place of business and sort this out.

If she isn’t answering your emails, how did you schedule the time to meet with her three weeks ago? Call her, go to her business, whatever. 

I don’t understand how you have paid for services without knowing what varieties of flowers you want. My first (and only) meeting with my florist was the initial consultation, and we went over my inspiration photos and photos of her previous work, a floor plan of the ceremony location and venue, etc. We discussed all floral types and overall vibe of the event. Several days later she sent me a detailed quote with all that we had discussed. We tweaked her quote to add a few things and remove others, and once we finalized I signed the contract and mailed her a deposit. We will reconnect two to three weeks before the wedding to make sure that nothing has changed, and final payment is due upon delivery.

What exactly have you been paying for if you don’t know what you’re getting?

Your wedding is still a while away, and it’s possibly the busiest time of year for her. I would cut some slack, but continue to email and call. Reply back to your own emails to her with something like ‘hi Gina, I still haven’t heard back from you in regards to another meeting, can you please let me know When this week will work for you?’ 

Or just goto the shop and set something up then.
