It sounds like your gut instinct tells you NOT to hire her.  I’d agree.  I also think it’s usually a bad idea to have friends or acquaintances do major things for your wedding (food, cake, flowers, etc.) because you cannot fire your friends.  There’s no nice way to tell your friends you hate their food/cake/floral design.  Also, if she think she’s “helping” she may not write up a real contract, then what would you do if she didn’t show/showed up late/didn’t bring the right flowers/you hated the flowers/etc.?

If I were you, I’d pass her offer. If she’s already making your Fiance pay more than expected I wouldn’t think she’d give you guys a discount for the flowers. It’d also be one more things to hold over your heads. You can always try and get a quote from her, for ideas, but in my opinion I don’t think it’d be a good idea to use her for the flowers.

@BetterSherm:  I think in your shoes I would probably find another florist. You don’t want to have to argue with your friendors or deal with any unnecessary stress. You can always tell her you want her to be able to sit back and enjoy the wedding without being burdened by the flowers or something like that.

Go with your gut on this one. You could say “we appreciate the offer but we do not want family/friends to do work for our wedding.”

Always go with the gut! There’s a reason it’s telling you what it’s telling you!

Ugh the girl who set my husband and I up is like that and while I’m so grateful to her there comes a point where I don’t even want to talk to her! Let alone hire her to work for me.
