OMG Stalkers

You guys will never believe who just called me - FiftyFlowers! Apparently they stalk this board to see who is reviewing them & since I have my contact info up, they tracked down my business #. So I get this overly nice woman on the phone and she's like "We just wanted to follow up on your previous order" (which was like 2 years ago!) "and see if you need anything else right now. Aren't you planning a vow renewal next year?" Um, no... you screwed up the colors & I lost my butt because I had to track down the right colored callas & pay full price. Not only that, but they will never even get close to the prices or quality I am getting now. I just thought I would share - weirded me out! This is the only board where I have told anyone about my vow renewal. I mean, I will offer services if someone openly asks, but you do not stalk customers and cold call!

Leann.. did you have good luck with 50flowers?  They have the right flowers in the right quantity that we need and I was going to order flowers from them.  I am just getting petals to work in with the centerpieces and then roses for boutonnieres and bouquets. Are there better wholesale sites out there? I don't want to be stalked for the rest of my life..

I was in disbelief - maybe they are doing that bad?? I dunno. Sheesh.


Kimberlee, the flower quality wasn't all that bad, but it wasn't great either. Plus they sent the wrong colors. I ordered the Red Mini Callas & White Mini Callas - I got the black (dark purple) & Picassos (Cream & purple inside). I couldn't use them for my customer, but at least my house looked nice for the holidays. Kimberlee, I only know of my wholesalers as of right now (and they only deal with tax ids). If you let me know what you need, I will see what I can find for you from my wholesalers & searching the net. I can give you the specific flower varieties so they don't screw it up at least. For some reason, it is becoming all to common that they think substitutions are acceptable for weddings. I don't - I would have flipped if it was my own wedding and I got the wrong colors.

That's what I am thinking. With bigger busineses though, they usually have a separate sales department and they are told to push, push, push even if they are doing well. So its hard to say, but they won't develop a good relationship with the bridal community by doing that. I have to make my email public since I am a biz, but for you guys, I would keep it private to keep away the hounds. They have no shame! I sit on both sides of the fence and I don't like being hounded by telemarketers, so its not fair to do it to others.

But on the other hand, it was pretty funny... I was at a loss for words. :)
