VERY upset with Bittersweet Wedding designs right now!

Recommended Posts

It's a shame...

The flowers are beautiful...

But not worth the trouble due to the unprofessionalism of the vendor...

Just to clarify:

 

- I paid for extra bubble wrap to ensure that the flowers did not get damaged upon shipment (which is why they were in different packaging)

-The flowers bouquets were arranged in such a rush (clearly Crystal did these last minute), that the pins to hold the ribbon together were poking out. I put scotch tape over the pins so that Crystal would not poke her fingers when she handled the bouquets

- I also provided photos of all the flowers in the package to Crystal, so that Crystal was aware of their condition before I sent them back to her, so if they are filthy (not sure how they possibly could be) this is certainly not by my doing.

This is very upsetting and frustrating since such a big deal was made here and the entire time I insisted on receiving the flowers back first before issuing a refund. This is why. It really sucks that UPS screwed up, but I went above and beyond by paying for real flowers. It also really sucks that I've had an overwhelming number of cancellations due to this post..but at the same time an overwhelming number of bookings.

 

From now on, there are no more refunding of deposits as it originally states in the contract anyway. And once the packages are in the hands of the shipping company, it is out of our control. Please if you would like to order flowers, read the contract first. The link is posted on the first page of the floramatique gallery.

 

I wish you all the best of happiness and health in your upcoming weddings and new lives with your significant others.

 

Thank you for your input and advice, and thank you for your continued support.

I don't think Bittersweet even knows Scott-Pierre is on this forum. I think her argument means nothing to BDW girls anymore. This was one situation and anyone could decide that maybe it wouldn't happen again but only a few days after this thread ended a new one started... and what do you know!!! That bride didn't get her flowers either!!!!!!!!! Oh and Bittersweet blamed it on UPS AGAIN!!!!!!!!

 

This forum is GREAT! I'm fairly certain any member or anyone who googles and finds this thread will NOT use Bittersweet, some may even decide to let the money go and move on because in the end she has caused too much stress, especially when brides are already stressed days before they leave for a DW!

ok, i think we've made the point. let's keep this thread to facts and actual experiences with the vendor. we don't need to turn this into an attack on someone.

I beleive that Ann was referring to attacking the vendor as well as a bride. I think the truth is out there so the members can make their own decisions regarding whether they want to use a vendor. Keeping it just to the facts makes it easier for brides to not get caught up in the drama and make a decision based on the actual experieces rather then feedback.

 

ETA: I also wanted to say that this wasn't directed at you in particular, just in general this thread has turned into attack mode and we'd like to keep it just factual.

right, this wasn't directed at anyone in particular. i just think the point has been made, and unless there are any new developments or any of the involved members need to say more, i don't know that there is a need for further comments.

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
