I am so upset about my flowers at the wedding words can't describe how I feel.
To start the day, I saw all of the bouquets in the bride's room and I was already disappointed. My garden roses became the ordinary roses you can find at a grocery store. Lisianthus were not in the bouquet at all. Tulips were not the double tulips I asked for. Freesias were not even open and were dangling out. I wanted only creams and pink in my bouquet and there was so much green!
My husband's boutonniere was suppose to be pink and it was ivory...like the groomsmen's. The florist kept telling me how the groom needs to stand out when we had our meeting. No, he did not stand out because he got the wrong color boutonniere!
All of the corsages were average looking. I had a better corsage when I went to prom. Dads' boutonniere didn't have any ribbons or accents and didn't match moms' corsages at all. My dad described it as someone cutting the stem off a rose and just put a pin on it.
My centerpieces were so cheap looking! I could've gotten a $20-30 vase at the store and have more flowers on it than what I saw at the reception.
Later found out the florist didn't even do my flowers because she had to take care of her sick husband. She is offering a refund but the damage is done. I am sure all of the flowers are in the pictures. She is being hopeful and was trying to tell me they will look better in pictures. I am so angry!
I want to apologize if my story scares any of the bride-to-be
