Wedding bouquet at a glance? What was included?
I made an appointment for April 23rd. I responded to their confirmation email answering all 25+ questions, included pictures and my budget of around $700 and sent it back the next day. Had the meeting with the owner and loved her work! I heard that Libby’s was expensive, but I thought she would be willing to work with my budget. During the meeting she asked the exact same questions that I answered in the email, thankfully I had a copy and gave it to her so that speed the process up. She was awesome, seemed like she was willing to work with my budget. I needed 4 bouquets, 3 corsages and 7 boutonnieres. They said the bridal bouquets go up to $175, so I figured the bridesmaids would be less than that. The boutonnieres would be around $13 each. Great, I thought.
I received an email April 26th - “after meeting with you we had several brides that were in progress with us confirm the weekend of your wedding and unfortunately we will not be able to do your flowers.”
“Why didn't you say that during the meeting then? It was my understanding that you were putting together a detailed invoice, not determining if you had enough time to take me on as a client. I could have paid a deposit fee the day we met if that meant it would secure my wedding date. If it's the small budget you are really concerned about I would have been able to up it some and cut back on my other wedding vendors. This is very disappointing, I wish you would have just responded to my original email when I first told you of my small budget. Then we both wouldn't have wasted any time.”
Bottom line, if you are on a budget don’t even bother with Libby’s Flowers. If you have the money, know you will not be disappointed with quality/value. I procrastinated and now lost 2 weeks and my wedding is in June. Don’t get me wrong, this is my entire fault, but I wanted to share this review so other brides on a budget knew that if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.
