Anyone Recently Receive Flowers from Bittersweet?t

Recommended Posts

Wow. I've been reading this from the beginning, as well as the other recent BDW bride (can't recall who of the top of my head) this whole shifty communication and not receiving flowers on time is lame and lame is really understating it. I hope you get your flowers on time b/c they really are gorgeous! Try to remain calm if they don't show up -- ya easier said than done though, eh? Your wedding will be just as beautiful with fresh Jamaican flowers!! Good luck I hope things get sorted out :)

My fingers are crossed that she redeems herself and gets those flowers to you ASAP. Hell if she was a good vendor she would drive them to you if she messed up and forgot to ship them, because she messed up and she needs to fix her mistake. I really hope you get them on time, and I also hope that no one else from here uses this vendor. She said she is back on track now, in another thread, and that no one else will be without their flowers, well here she goes again. Stay Away, bittersweet is just bitter if you ask me.

Well this whole story really stinks! I really hope you get your flowers on time...I am sure you are beyond stressing over this...I would be for sure. I really really hope it all works out for you. Honestly...you have been very calm...I would have been blowing up the phone lines and email. But really that never does me any good in situations like this..so you have probably handled it better then I. :) Best of Luck!

Wow- you shouldn't have to be dealing with this extra stress when you're so close to your wedding. I really hope everything works out for you. Thanks for taking the time to keep people informed about what's going on with this vendor.

Good luck!

Hey ladies! Thanks for all of your posts! Well another day has gone by and no response to email and NO flowers. Yesterday I sent another email and told her how unprofessional her company is with their broken promises. No response to that either. It's looking like I won't have the flowers b/c they were obviously not shipped as promised. I am in the process of picking out some backups for when I get to the resort. Thank goodness I am so busy with other last minute stuff that I am really just over this! I hope that I have been able to help other brides avoid this disaster! Happy plannning to you all! :)

I am so sorry this has happened to you...that is really crappy. I cannot believe a vendor on BDW would actually do this...well, I can believe it. Usually they get banned.

 

Rest assured that ROR does have beautiful flowers. You might pay a little more, but you have a good option for backup. If you don't get your flowers before you leave, make sure you fight to get your money back.

 

Enjoy your wedding, time with family and friends, most importantly your husband!! You will LOVE the ROR. It was the best decision ever! Can't wait to see pics, and read your review.

OMG I am SO SORRY that this has happened to you! As you probably know from my posts, that I have been in the same boat with this vendor. I ended up using the resort for my flowers and they were beautiful so don't worry your wedding will be amazing with or without Bittersweet's flowers! I would suggest trying to get a refund ASAP as it took over a month and a half to get mine... She only responded to me once I threatened to sue her, otherwise I would have to deal with the run-around emails, and then soon after, no emails at all... I really am sorry that you're in this situation... I was hoping that she had learnt her lesson after screwing me over... Best of luck to you, and just keeping thinking about the amazing wedding you're going to have next week!! :)

Blows my mind that she hasn't realized that this could ruin her business!!!!! Don't piss off a stressed out bride.. I agree with an earlier post.... she should be driving your flowers to your door. Good luck and remember their only flowers you still have the right groom and nothing else matters... Best Wishes....

Dr BrainFreeze - Thanks for your post! I do feel a little better knowing that I do have the backup of Tai Flora at the ROR... it just stinks that the flowers most likely won't be what I really want b/c I know that they may not be available last minute and they will be super expensive!

 

Glamourina - I was following your thread closely and I just had a sinking feeling in my stomach that my situation was not going to turn out well. It seems that we are not the only ones that have been shafted by her. I am glad you finally got your money back! :) I saw your review and the pics... your flowers turned out gorgeous anyway!

 

AnnR- It doesn't seem fair that Bittersweet is allowed to be on here after screwing over several brides here on the forum. She shouldn't get any extra exposure!

 

To update everyone I sent an email this morning demanding a full refund. Another day has gone by and no response to my NUMEROUS attempts at contacting her and no flowers. I plan to blow her phone up today until she finally answers and gives me the refund. I have never had such a bad experience and I hope that no one else has to go through this. Thanks to everyone for all of your positive wishes!

    • Unfortunately, pregnancy yoga training is a time of extreme. It's all part of the deal; even the stress is often a normal effect of the hormones that are raging through your system. But you have to keep stress at a controlled level because you have to think of your health and that of your baby. Here are some tips on how to keep stress at bay during pregnancy: 1. Evaluate your activities. Pregnancy is a time of many changes; your body is changing and your life is also about to change. You are transitioning to becoming a new mother. While you're at it, it's high time to change your activities as well. Evaluate your activities by checking your schedule. Perhaps you lived quite a busy life before. That can be pretty stressful and may even put your pregnancy at risk, so it would be best to slow things down a bit now that you're pregnant. Pregnancy has its way of affecting your mood and making you feel tired all the time, so there will be times when you just won't be productive. So instead of piling up on tasks, choose activities that you can drop or delegate to someone else. 2. Break the bad habits. Whether you really were trying to get pregnant or pregnancy crept up on you, somewhere along the way you will face the need to break your bad habits. What are these notorious bad habits you definitely have to say goodbye to during your pregnancy? · Smoking · Alcohol consumption · Too much coffee or any other beverage that contains caffeine One good way of breaking bad habits, even ones that you've had for years, is subliminal programming. Subliminal programming means re-training the mind; it works in two steps: · Removing negative embedded factors in the subconscious Since this method communicates directly with the subconscious, which is responsible for directing our actions and behaviors, it is more effective than consciously deciding to stop smoking or drinking. 3. Take up meditation. If you haven't tried it before, now is the best time to take up meditation. There are many tips and instructions online as well as many books on the subject. You can learn it on your own or join a meditation class. Meditation is the art of emptying the mind to relax both the mind and the body. It is also very effective in regulating emotions, which can be hard to control when you're pregnant. If you have plenty of time to spare, join a yoga class. 4. Block the horror stories. Every woman who's been pregnant loves telling her pregnancy stories to non-pregnant or newly pregnant women. It's their way of saying "welcome to the club." While good advice is particularly helpful, most women tend to share horror stories, or stories of how stressful and emotional pregnancy was for them. You may also use subliminal messages to train your mind to block these negative stories, so you can focus on the positive things about your pregnancy. There are many positive things, too, the biggest of which is the new life inside you, so you won't run out of good thoughts to nurture in your mind.   Safe and Easy Workouts to Do During Your Pregnancy The main rule of thumb when exercising while pregnant is to modify your workouts to suit the trimester you are in and to honor what is happening to your body. What is deemed appropriate for your first trimester is certainly not for your third trimester. However, there are several exercises that you can perform right through to the end. Let's examine the first trimester. You are just beginning your nine-month journey. You may be feeling a bit more tired, perhaps queazy, but you may not even be showing a baby bump yet. At this time, if you have already had a workout program in place, you can continue with what you've been doing.  Some doctors may not advise any lying down exercises at any time during your pregnancy, but speak with your physician to determine if this modification is necessary. Appropriate exercise for the first trimester: • your normal routine (within limits) • walking • swimming • low impact aerobics (keeping heart rate low) • strength training • yoga As you move into your second trimester, you may be feeling a surge of energy but your body is showing the pregnancy more and certain workouts may not feel as good. Around this time, lying down is not totally recommended and keeping heart rate low and core body temperature low is important. The importance of abdominal and pelvic floor strength should be highlighted throughout your pregnancy, so if you haven't already started, Kegal exercises should be implemented in all workouts you do. What is a Kegal? The pelvic floor muscles are like a hammock of muscles located at the base of your torso and under your pelvis. To do a Kegal, simply engage the muscles that you would use to urinate. Keeping these muscles strong may make for an easier birth and less pregnancy related incontinence. Appropriate exercise for the second trimester: • Kegal exercises • pelvic tilts (with head elevated with pillows) • walking • swimming • easy yoga • strength training (lighter weights) As you move into your third trimester, you are now getting to the top of your pregnancy weight which may change the way you stand, how long you can sit, and your sense of balance. Aches and pains from your changing body are probably felt more now. Workouts now become about making you comfortable and making sure you simply maintain what you have. A safe abdominal exercise, which also makes your back feel great, is an all-fours cat stretch and contraction. To do: on a rug or sticky mat, go down onto hands and knees. Keeping back straight, simply pull your abdominals in towards your spine without altering the straight position of your back.. Repeat 10 times. From there, round your back up, like an angry cat, feeling a stretch over your shoulders and spine, then release. Repeat 5 times. Prenatal yoga is great for elevating your mood, may help you sleep better, and decreases pregnancy aches and pains. Just make sure you speak with your doctor first and remember to never start a new program while pregnant. Keeping up with what you're doing is super and will make for an easier birth and a faster recovery.
