Flower Girl September 17, 2012 at 5:20 pm

I offered to purchase the flowers for a wedding. All the flowers. The Bride never confirmed any order nor came to view any samples of the flowers. 1 week before the wedding I ordered the entire floral arrangements needed for a proper wedding. After notifying the bride she said she did not want the flowers I ordered. So I canceled the order and lost a substantial deposit. The florist was kind enough to take home all the arrangements that were completed and equaled the amount of my deposit.

I asked the Bride to let me know when she decided on flowers and 3 days before the wedding she had not even bothered to order her BRIDAL BOUQUET. I in turn placed an additional order with the brides input on the type of flowers she would like. But she also took the flowers that I had PURCHASED with my deposit and kept them in her home! They were orchids arranged with beach wood and succulents in the form of a terrarium for her beach wedding.

Am I wrong for feeling cheated here? Can I ask for them back?
