octoberskyy:  I think that you deserve a wedding planner who is going to work within your budget but at the same time take the time to figure out what is important to you. At the end of the day it is your money and you should have the final say of where it’s spent.

octoberskyy:  put your foot down.  If you need, have your DH with you.. make sure beforehand the two of you have agreed that you will NOT be brushed off.  The budget will change or you will get a refund from them because they are not performing to the contracted terms.  Ignoring your wishes is NOT what a wedding planner does and definitely NOT what you hired them to do.

Wow. Your flower budget is high to me. I would try talking the the planner and making it clear.

octoberskyy: your overall budget seems crazy high to me and I had a 80 person wedding in Sonoma with several SF vendors. 

I spent $500 on flowers, $240 on cake ($3pp) and $700 on paper – STDs, invites, response cards, thank yous, programs, & menus (Oscar de la Renta for Paperless Post)

In all fairness, I had a hipster garden party wedding amongst vineyards so I could cut back on florals.

hope that helps
