@envirobride:  Have you read any reviews on her service?

Personally, if the florist seemed all over the place, flaky, etc. from the beginning, I would look for another florist. The last thing you need on your wedding day is worrying about whether or not the flowers you paid a ton of money for are even going to make it in time due to your past negative experiences with her.

Is her work unique/one-of-a-kind to the point that you wouldn’t be willing to find another? Or, would you consider her replaceable? If you can find another florist in that same price range that can do what you want, I would suggest finding another florist.

 

Good luck!

@envirobride:  In that case, I would search around to see what you can find. Definitely don’t pay to meet with a florist. That is crap! But wait to dump the florist you have, until you find another one that seems to be reliable and that charges the same.

Do you mind me asking how much your deposit was? If it was a lot and not worth losing, you could always have an open discussion with your current florist to tell her how you feel. Is she aware of the fact that you are driving so far to meet with her?

why did you choose her in the first place?  recommended?  regular customer? good work? price?

you will need to decide if she will be committed to your wedding.

i know what you mean about planning from a distance.  i did it too.  i made telephone appointments with my vendors.  as for the florist, i emailed her pictures that i liked and a list of what i needed prior to our set time, that way, we could discuss if all would fit into my budget.  i knew my florist (just professionally) and trusted that she would do a good job.  you may be able to accomplish a lot with a phone appointment and it will save you travelling.
