I was definitely not pleased with the outcome of my flowers from Flowergirls of Tulsa. I specified that I absolutely did NOT want baby's breath in any of my bouquets. When the flowers were brought to the church, the jr. bridesmaids' bouquets were roses that were a different color of pink (it was almost a hot pink, and I asked for a pale shade of pink) than the roses in all of the other bouquets and lots of baby's breath. In my bouquet, which was supposed to be primarily white, I asked for cymbidium orchids that were white and she used orchids with a mauve color in the middle. The orchids were more mauve than white. When placing my order, my mom was there and agrees that I not only told Cindy, but I also showed her a picture of the orchids I wanted in my bouquet on a laptop. I specified that I did not want the mauve colored orchids. The day of the wedding, I took all of the orchids out of my bouquet myself because they were hideous.
Another thing I thought was strange, was the fact... Read more that after I paid my deposit which was half of the cost of the flowers, Cindy sent me a text message three weeks before the wedding asking for the remaining balance. My mom and I both thought this was odd because we were under the assumption that you would pay the remaining balance once you have received the goods. Cindy makes it to where on the day of the wedding, even if you don't like your flowers, there is nothing you can really do because she cashes your check three weeks before the wedding.
I also thought it was kind of funny that she made a big deal about me doing my own fresh flower centerpieces and how some florists won't take your business if you insist on doing your own centerpieces. The only flowers I received compliments on that night, were the 35 floral centerpieces that were created by my family the Friday afternoon before the wedding. The entire evening of the wedding, the wedding coordinator at the church and multiple guests kept commenting on how the centerpieces were the most beautiful they had ever seen and asking who the florist was that created them. My family and I got to take credit for them since Cindy made it quite clear that she was upset about us doing the centerpieces.

I am very pleased with the flowers. I ended up adding orchids to my order two weeks before the wedding and she was very helpful with the changes and made it happen.
