I found that you can’t judge a florist based off of their websites. Most of the florists I considered had very generic websites. If you’ve only been to the one florist, it doesn’t hurt to maybe go to the other one for a consultation to see what they have to offer.

@MissSangria:  I would maybe tell your Future Mother-In-Law that you’ve found a florist and are about to sign, but ask your Future Mother-In-Law if she could get a portfolio from her friend and maybe see if you like her work enough to consider a proposal from her. Also, since it’s her friend, you would probably be taken care of a little better, and maybe it would be a little bit cheaper?

When my Future Mother-In-Law suggests things, I always pre-amble that I already have someone in mind, but am willing to take a look. And then if I don’t like whatever it is, I just say that I have a better feeling about the other one.

If you don’t want to consider them, just tell your FMIY thanks, but you already found a florist. No big deal.

I like the pp about asking about the portfolio AND letting her know that you’re about to sign w/someone else you’ve already been working with. we have a similar issue w/the family throwing in last minute items and it’s like HELLO-i’ve been working on this now for over a year-got it covered, but they just want to help. Its SO hard esp when its on the Future MIL/SIL side of things.

Good luck!
