Raining Roses came highly recommended so I thought I would give them a try. I called and arranged a meeting. During my visit the florist was very nice. He asked me about what I wanted for the wedding and what my budget was. I felt good leaving the studio. Two days later I had not received a quote so I gave them a call. I was promised a quote the next day. After waiting I still didn't get a quote. Fast forward to a week later, I finally got a quote... for TWICE my budget. I understand a little up-selling, but this was absurd. I could have just written them off but instead I wrote back stating "the cost was above what I had hoped. Can we work together to bring it down a bit?" And I never heard from them again. Apparently they are doing so well, they don't need my $3,000. Vendors may have a great product, but when they aren't responsive and get too big headed for their own good, it's time for a swift reality check... you get more bees with honey, since you're selling flowers, remember that bees are a serious part of your livelihood.
