So I am totally pissed at petals by Xavi! I was totally honest with them about having a tiny budget of $800. I had won a "free bridal bouqet" and 15% off at a bridal show. Turns out "free bridal bouquet" it the tossing nosegay. Then they told me that they have a $1500 minimum, after I drove 1 hour and 30 minutes each way.
They also told me they could work in any budget, but when I got there, were unable to compromise. I have no idea what I wanted, or what my budget could afford, but the sales girl just kept asking me what I wanted. I kept saying I don't know, what can you do?
Plus, I had to repeate all the info I had already given her about how many and what price and what flowers i like.
Needless to say, I am kinda pissed!
I stoped my my local florist to see what they could do, and the prices were EXPONENTIALLY less, and they sat and sketched me a full desgin and had specific recommendation for what would work with my color pallet and budget.
Has anyone else used/is using a local florist rather than these crazy wedding and event only ones?
