Hi ladies! I am in need of some advice about my florist situation.
I'm getting married in October and started researching florists back in late January. I met with one I liked and got a quote from her in February. I decided not to meet with any others because my area is really expensive and she was very affordable, in part because she is a one-woman shop. At the same time, I was kind of going through a bit of color/vision crisis and told her that I wanted to work with her but I needed some time to figure out what was up with my color scheme/vision. We checked in every now and then via email until early April when I sent her a list of items I wanted to revise in that quote. Ever since then, she has been difficult to reach and get updates from. No new quote still. I've tried calling her so we can get on the same page (and she could tell me if there were extenuating circumstances) but it always goes to VM. My fiance pointed out that maybe because I was hesitant, she wasn't committed to me -- even though she said she had us down on her calendar. At this point, its been two months since I went back to her and I want a firm quote and a contract of some sort. Otherwise my plan B is to DIY flowers, which is fine but not what I had been intending to do. I'm not willing to shell out $2,500 - 3,000 + for flowers, so pretty much anyone else in my market is out of the question.
Writing this out, it seems worse than maybe I'm willing to accept. I know I'm largely to blame for dillydallying, but in my defense I work FT while in grad school FT and have been dealing with parental health concerns throughout this so wedding planning took a back seat for the spring. What would you all think / do in this situation? Even if I can get ahold of her, would you move forward or would you just move on to your plan B?
