instead of orange). Had the difference not been that noticeable, I wouldn't have cared. However, they looked like a spring arrangement as opposed to a fall arrangement, which I requested. My maid of honor called the shop immediately and they offered to amend the situation without any question. The person that delivered the flowers returned them and came back with the correct ones promptly. Due to how professionally and tactfully this situation was handled, I would absolutely still recommend them to anyone and use them again myself.
Sometimes, mistakes happen. That is the reality of running a business and life itself, however, it was how the situation was handled with emaculate customer service that truly matters. My flowers were beautiful. :)
