Advice needed please re: a vendor

Ok so I have seen 2 less than stellar reviews about my florist on the knot recently.

I have also seen some awesome reviews as well but I am still nervous... do you think I should mention the recent reviews to them?

When I met with them I was totally confident and loved them but now I get all wobbly in the tummy when I read the reviews.

What would you ladies do? Is it wrong to say "hi I saw this poor review on the knot and I am concerned?"

TIA!!!!

    No I think that's totally okay...I had a similar concern about my florist because of some negative reviews I had read so I just found a good opportunity to ask and did. I figured that I'd rather feel awkward for one minute and ask, then have awful flowers or be disappointed at my wedding! In the end, I was so happy I did because I was reassured and my flowers came out exactly how I wanted them too!

    If it REALLY bothers you, maybe you should mention it. That way THEY know some of their clients weren't too happy and maybe they can make sure they won't make the same mistake with you and future clients.

    Alissa, I would mention it... just remind him that you are very confident in his work but that naturally reading that made you nervous. Personally I think that he will do a great job for you. You've been in very good contact with him all along and he knows Mob won't let him get away with any nonsense so... I'm sure it willl be fine but it can't hurt to let him know of yoru concerns so he is extra aware that he needs to do a good job!

    yup you know I have to speak up about not liking my actual trial flowers! eek!

    GL to us but It's worth it that you feel better and they should know you're keeping up with reviews so they need to be on their best behavior for your wedding.

    I think its absolutely ok, maybe say you read these reviews and your concerned and you want to have the reassurance yours will not turn out like the reviews. I would be truthful with them upfront so there are no problems and just constantly keep in contact with them about any issues or concerns you have. GL

    Alissa I would definitely mention it to them so that you can feel more confident in their abilities.

    One of my vendors has received criticism before and it's just best to address it.  i am sure your flowers will be perfect and you will be happy with what they put together.  Remember that you chose them for a reason and I am sure you have good judgment.

    I would totally say something. This way also, they know that their work is being reviewed and they will try and make things right.

    Definitely talk to them about it. You might do yourself a huge favor. They may want to make it extra special for you and put in 200% to prove those reviews wrong. I don't think it will hurt : )

    I'm glad your mom called and mentioned it to him. I'm sure your flowers are going to come out beautiful! It's hard to hear bad reviews on your vendor but it's important to remember that everyone has different experiences with the same people (does that make sense?). The flowers could have been wilted that day because of the weather change recently...you never know. I think your communication with Dalsimer has been on point this whole thing so I don't think you have anything to be worried about. Plus- February is the best month to get married and everything will be beautiful! Wink
