Awful Wedding Flowers – We came here to get our wedding flowers and we're over sold quite a bit. We met with Deborah (the owner) twice and had pictures of exactly what we wanted. Deborah had to buy silver vases and said she was happy to do so after we put down a deposit.
2 months beforehand, we asked to borrow the vase to pick out wedding linens. When we saw it she said it was similar, but the Flower Market had her specific ones in storage. It seemed odd that she didn't have the actual vase.
3 weeks before the wedding, she made up a mock up of our reception flowers. The flowers were simply awful! Instead of a dome ball of flowers, it looked like a flat tire of plants with a few hydrangeas in them. The arrangement had no flowers in the center...right, there was a gap in our reception flowers big enough to put one if not two big candles. Additionally, it was still a borrowed vase and we were told it would not be used for our centerpieces.
The flowers were so off base from what we had described, and it seemed so odd we could not see our actual vase which we had been very specific about it. I can't image any suppliers at the Flower Market being willing to use up their own space for over 6 months.
With all the disappointment and mis-communication, we could not use her as our florist for our wedding flowers. When we told her how upset we were, she offered to change the centerpieces slightly, but not do another mock up.
We decided not to use her as a florist and asked for our $500 minus the cost of the arrangement she had previously done. She refused to give us back the deposit saying it was to save the date for her work. The reality is, she did save the date, but could not deliver on the work she promised to do for our wedding. We didn't cancel our wedding, but instead she was not holding up her end of our deal.
We were highly disappointed in Deborah and Romance etc. Not only did we spend a lot of time going through pictures and explaining exactly what we wanted, but lost $500. I would highly recommend saving your time and money and going somewhere else for special floral arrangement and even larger business transactions.
