unforuntatley this could happen a lot to you during wedding planning and perhaps in life in general. I have no advice other than to say simply keep looking there will be many other florists who would gladly take you on.

That is sad. Love is love, and I think it’s unfortunate that so many think that some people don’t deserve the right to legally declare their love and commitment for another person. What’s more, it’s strange (and poor business practices!) that someone wouldn’t even want their business name mentioned!

Ew. Don’t let ignorance ruin your day or your lovely plans. Her loss.

I feel bad for that deplorable, angry, misguided, low-brown, repulsive, uneducated “woman.”  

Good luck to you in your search for a new florist who will respect and appreciate your beautiful marriage.

It’s sad that you even had to say “Do you have any moral or religious obligation to a lesbian wedding?”  I’m sorry that you had to have such a negative experience during a happy time for you and your future wife. I hope you can find a florist that will be proud to be a part of your wedding.

I feel sorry for her.  Focusing so much energy on discrimination and hate must be exhausting.  I am sure you will find an amazing florist that you and your soon-to-be wife will love!  Best wishes <3

Wow! I actually have never even thought about a same sex wedding being a vendor issue. Keep looking honey, there is no way in the world you should give this lady your money to not support your day. She can suck it!

You have every right to work with vendors who support you and your wife as much as any other couple. Don’t be too discouraged, you’ll find a great florist! A lot of people still need to wake up and accept that love is love. Please don’t let this put a damper on your happiness 🙂

 

By The Way It’s objection not obligation, but I’m betting that was just a typo.

wow that sucks bigtime 🙁  totally unacceptable IMO on many levels.  keep looking, there will be tons of florists that would love to work with you (and have your money :))  don’t get discouraged.  it’s your and your FI’s love here that’s important, not other peoples political and religious views.

Just curious, but how would she keep her opposition to herself if you flat out asked her the question?  Would you rather her lie?  I guess I just don’t get it.

Drop her like a bad habit and spread the word in your local community that Fifi is a homophobe.
