I just wanted simple bouquets with one type of flower (matsumoto asters) in light pink dark pink and white and no fillers...arranged into simple tight nosegays with all extra greenery stripped. I had exact pictures of what I wanted and showed the florist, asking her if it was a difficult feat. She said it would be easy to do and i decided to have her do the arrangements instead of stressing about it myself. Two days before they called me to tell my white asters were rotten so they couldn't use them. They offered to use *cheaper* flowers, carnations (NO WAY!) or daisies. I was very disappointed as I'd had a clear vision of what I wanted for the bridal party bouquets. I agreed to use the daisies but asked if they would compensate me at all for the fact that I would not be getting what I had ordered. They refused. I told them I was disappointed in their service but would have to deal with it since I chose them and the wedding was in 2 days. They did end up getting in some lovely white asters...that much I can say for them. However, on the day of the wedding, the flowers were dropped off at the church and I was very very disappointed. None of the leaves were removed. They were not in a nosegay, looked nothing at all like the photo. Basically, I coule have done exactly what the florst did - grab all the flowers, in a loose bunch and slap a ribbon around them. Thankfully my mother-in-law helped at least to arrange my bouqet into a tighter/neater nosegay.

Choosing Beaumont Florists for my wedding was my biggest regret. It was a simple task and they couldn't seem to make the flowers look decent.
