Where to begin – I unfortunately don’t have good things to say about Tina. She was hard to communicate with and extremely hard to get ahold of. I would email, call, and leave voicemails only to not get a response. I have heard horror stories ab...
out the florist getting things wrong, so I wanted to take every step to ensure that did not happen. My mother and I went to her house to do a mock centerpiece. Everything looked great. She took notes, pictures, and put everything into my file. I thought “how could she get this wrong?” I was very mistaken.
Bouquet: My colors were blush pink, navy, and silver. I emailed her pictures for my bouquet because I wanted some pops of burgundy since it was the fall. I ended up getting a little bit of blush pink, red, and a lot of burgundy. Nothing close to what I showed her. When we did first look, it was very windy. She asked if I wanted my bouquet and I told her no because the wind would’ve destroyed the flowers. We ended up moving pictures to the front of the Lodge (Edgewood). I wanted my bouquet for the family photos. We called her probably 10 times with no answer. Turns out her phone was left in her car.
Boutonnières: These were supposed to be blush pink to match my colors. Instead they were red. I have zero idea where she got the idea to put red on these since I specifically told her I did not want any red in the wedding.
Corsages: Tina made the corsages with white orchids (my flowers were roses and dahlias) with gold ribbon (everyone else had silver ribbon because silver was my color). We saw them 20 minutes before the wedding. Tina’s response was it was too late to fix them, which I completely agreed. She ended up refunding us for these because they did not go with anything.
Centerpieces: These were red/cranberry instead of the blush pink I told her I wanted. Again, no idea where she got the idea to do red. Additionally, the centerpieces looked like they were just thrown together very quickly. We provided lanterns and wooden planks that Tina agreed to put out. The lanterns were hanging off the wood planks. It just looked awful.
Bottom line, stay away from Tina. Pick another florist, or risk having something completely different than you discussed or envisioned.
