HELP!

HELP! My florist, who originally gave me a reasonable quote for flowers has come back with an OBSCENE quote for decor, even though I haven't changed what I want!

Please share your florists and contact info!

I am so stressed, my Nanna is sick and I have had no time to do anything for the wedding and now I am scared that all the good vendors will be gone :(

    Sorry dude, my florist only does BP flowers and I did my own decor. Is that an option for you? What kind of decor are you looking for?

    You can go through the Superstore/Loblaws. They have a floral designer who should be able to help you at a much lower cost - but call ahead as they arent in the stores.

    I haven't gone yet, but I've been referred to Roma Flowers on Steeles Ave.
    I've been told they have good prices and I'll be checking them out soon!

    I don't know what your budget is but I loved my florist - Heavenly Flowers - www.heavenlyflowers.ca... They're near Steeles and Yonge. I thought they were pretty  reasonable for the flowers, although we didn't really have any "decor" so I can't comment on their costs for that.

    I dont know how much my florist is because my MIL is taking care of it, but she is Floris on Avenue Road.
    I also heard that little Pink Twig  is good.
    but I dont know anyone who did decor, only flowers.

    check out the vendors in the back of the Ontario WEdding magazine.

    Thanks, ladies!

    For decor, I mean centrepieces and something to sit on the card table. I am so not creative or coordinated so the DIY option is def. out for me!!

    Have you considered asking your venue for recommendations? Usually they can refer you to someone they've dealt with previously for other events, and you might score a bit of a deal. Associated vendors will know, too, how you can get the most bang for your buck at that exact space.
