We're paying a lot of money on flowers- more than I think is necessary- and I saw some really good opportunities to reuse flowers. We already planned to have four alter bouquets reused at the reception. The florist wanted US
to transfer the flowers, but my coordinator said no- that's the florist's responsibility she can move them and she called the florist to tell her that.
I sent the final plans to the florist and I asked that six of the centerpieces be at the ceremony as well to decorate the alter. She just told me no! She said if I was getting married in the morning in a church that would be OK, but since I'm getting married in the afternoon outdoors that she won't do it. She mentioned that they would wilt but I really think it's because she doesn't want to transfer the flowers to the reception site.
So I'm PISSED but I don't know if I have a right to be pissed. Is she right? Is it a bad idea to have the flowers out for a 5:30 pm wedding then put them on tables for the reception?
