First and foremost, I chose Ava's Rainflorist because the owner was a "friend" of my father's. Not to mention, that my in the contract for my venue, we were supposed to use the in-house florist, but because I believed someone we knew would do a better job, we actually begged the manager of the venue to let us use an outside florist. Needless to say I was BEYOND DISAPPOINTED at my flowers the day of my wedding! They were disgusting! Not only did they show up with purple flowers when they were supposed to be blue, but the bridemaids' bouquets were sloppily bunched together and the flowers looked dead, even though the guy insisted that he was giving me the "freshest" flowers. Their bouquets were supposed to have blue hydrangeas in them, but there were none when they arrived. Then the guy shows me the contract and said we never had hydrangeas in them, but I had a picture from the day I went for the sample that clearly had them in the bouquet! In addition, my bouquet was missing flowers that were supposed to be in it. The boutonnieres were gross; I could have picked roses from a garden and made them look better and my groom's boutonniere looked no different than the other ushers. Basically, nothing that was written on my contract, or shown to me (thank god I had pictures!) was what we got! Like everything else, my centerpieces were not what was shown to me. The square vase that was supposed to be wrapped in crystal banding, was not wrapped at all! Again, my picture of the sample had it. And to top it off, the little square votives that were supposed to be wrapped in crystal banding were only glued around the base halfway! Such a sloppy and careless job for someone who said I was the "only wedding" that day. How could expect to get any business when you do jobs half fast?! There were no flowers for Mary for church, and NO flowers on my dais, which we PAID for. Overall, I was EXTREMELY disappointed in the service from Ava's Rainflorist. We were totally taken advantage of, from someone we "knew" and the job done was terrible, sloppy, rushed, and disgusting!
