stop and smells the roses ....

.... or in our case, any flowers.

After a rocky relationship with our florist, we broke up. The lack of communication and lack of confidence in the quality of service and product led to the end our relationship. So here we are, on the hunt for a new florist.

What now?

Do we continue to go with our calla theme and get the moms, dads, grandmothers, bridal party simple, white calls?

Or for the girls do we take a trip the morning of to Avenue/Dupont and pick fresh flowers and wrap them ourselves?

Do we contact Princess Lasertron and have her whip up some wicked pieces?

Do we get all our flowers at one place ensuring we get all the same flowers?

Do we take the chance and get all bouts and coursages from one place and pick fresh flowers the day of? Hopefully there will be callas? Maybe something else?

Don't worry mom, I'd totally go with Princess Lasertron so you would forever have my wedding flower, but Jer doesn't want to go that route (boo).

87 days to figure it out!!

I'm with Jeremy on this one.
Real flowers all the way.

It's better to get them from an actual florist because if you get them yourself you run the risk of having wilted flowers by the evening. Florists always carry "hardy" varieties that can withstand the elements and a long period out of water.

good points. The more I think about it, the more I want someone else to worry about it.

if you want the poop, send me an email:

Why are vendors crazy? WHY??? Are they unclear on the selling-things-for-money concept?
