Honestly…. I would have your mom get a refund for the other certificate too. They sound like a HUGE pain in the behind and you really dont want to have to keep dealing with them and their bad attitude. It all just sounds like a trainwreck waiting to happen.

To me, it would be worth it to pay a little more and take my buisness to a company that wanted to work with me. During our planning, we passed on even looking at any vendors that were rude to me when I called about cosultations/tours/etc. I’m SO glad I did. I was left with a group of vendors that were friendly and willing to what I asked of them to the best of their abilities. It made the experience so much better.

I would agree, try to get your money back.

Ive learned you should trust your gut.  If something doesnt seem right with them than I would find another baker. You may not be able to get everything you want in that price range but you should at least find a company that is willing to work with you and do business professionally.

They sound like a trainwreck waiting to happen.  I would steer very, very clear of them.

I agree with everyone else. This is not a business that I would consider doing business with at all. If they are this way now, they will probably be worse on your wedding day.

Just wanted to mention something I found for cake flowers – clay.

This etsy shop makes them and can do special orders. She didn’t have the flower I wanted listed, but I messaged her and she was able to create it.

This ranunculus cost me $40. The caterer was going to charge $70 for a sugar flower. I had been weirded out by nonedible things on the cake, but at our tasting there were sugar flowers and they are NOT edible! lol They really seemed like clay, which led me to:

if the bakery is treating you this way before they have your money, they’re only going to get worse. seriously, this is their behavior when they’re trying to win over a client…i can’t imagine what they do when they already have a contract!

You have to think of it not as saving $250 but as wasting $262 if you get treated like that and don’t get what you want!

I love baking… having a professional baker state that they can’t make a simple flower like a magnolia seems weird!  I would definitely be trying to get all your money back!
