Had an appointment with the owner to discuss flowers for an elopement. She was pushy and tyrannical, sternly lecturing me because my elopement was a week away. (By definition, most elopements are last minute). I almost cried in the store.
She said the only thing she could do was white and red roses. In the end, I bought $200 worth of artificial greenery that day. I found a florist from my home town who did exactly what I wanted for my bridal bouquet. They just ordered the flowers, which Teresa was unwilling to do.
THE KICKER: Teresa actually called the B and B (to their amusement) where I was getting married to complain about me, saying that ""Two hundred dollars is nothing for me.""
They took her off their preferred providers list.
