Oh my gosh, I’m so sorry she is doing this to you. I don’t have much advice other than to spell it out to her again. Are you able to see her in person so when she starts talking about something else you can cut off and say “No, I want Dahlias”.

If she still isn’t listening you might have to fire her and DIY your flowers (if you can).

Hope you get this sorted, you don’t need this stress this close to the wedding (I’m an October bride too).

Is it bad that my first thought was “Punch her in the nose and call her a moron.”?

That’s so frustrating. I don’t know how anybody could be that dense.

Any way you could talk to the coordinator to see if she has any suggestions?  Maybe say something along the lines of “She has some really great ideaas, but it’s not really the feel that we are going for and I don’t really know how to communicate my vision to her.  Can you help?”

Step one: Go into your Microsoft Word, or any other similar program will do.

Step two: Choose a very large, very bold font. A bright color is optional.

Step three: Type out the flowers you want. Then type out the vases you want. Then type the arrangements you want.

Step four: Make sure to type that you do not want anything that is NOT on that list.

Step five: Print off that list and mail it to this lady. Then email her another copy incase the hard copy doesn’t make sense to her.

If neither of those seems to make sense to her then proceed to step six.

Step six: Follow Fiftyfoot’s advice and slap some sense into her.

Can you make a sample? Maybe she needs to look at the item to visionalize which is silly cuz of her profession…I think she needs to change careers

 

lol @ fiftyfootbride: you sound like my fiance..he’s always saying things like that. Ugh, and no, it isn’t bad…because he’s rubbing off on me and I thought the same them..except it was more like slap her until she has some sense..with some cuss words πŸ˜‰

I second speaking with the co-ordinator and sending her a list of what you do and do not want and spelling it out like she is 6 years old.

I would definitely be ringing up the coordinator. Just because this is who she likes to work with doesn’t mean she’s the right fit for you. There’s no way you should have to spell things out for a true professional; her job is to bring YOUR vision to fruition.

I wonder if there are certain flowers and accessories that she can get hold of more cheaply and easily, so that’s what she’s decided you’re getting?

At any rate, she’s working for you and if she’s incapable of taking your requests into consideration, I would fire her now. Let your coordinator sort this out.
