La Fete Weddings
Minh was extremely helpful and welcoming to our unique hockey wedding. Our venues were decorated as we wished, and our bouquets were beautiful! We definitely recommend La Fete Weddings to future couples. Thank you, La Fete!
If I could sum up the services we received on our wedding day from La Fete it would be "awful"!! Beware - do not hire this company for your wedding!! Read on for more details...
I don't even know where to begin with what went wrong!! Jasmine told me that she wouldn't trust my wedding to anyone else - and then she didn't even show up to set it up! She sent her husband and some other guy to set up my wedding! In addition to that they were 2 hours late, so late that I was literally minutes away from calling in an emergency florist because no one would answer my calls so I didn't even know if they were coming! When the people did show up to set up, they in fact had NO idea that they were supposed to have been there 2 hours prior! NOTHING was how we had discussed it and everything was sloppy.
The napkins were the wrong colour, the draping they did on the arbour at the ceremony was so far off from what we had discussed it was laughable and sloppy of course. The chair covers didn't fit and looked silly, because she hadn't brought a chair cover to make sure it fit when she came to do the walk-about. I could go on and on...
The icing on the cake is that I have e-mailed and called La Fete after the wedding asking for some kind of reimbursement or apology and have heard literally nothing in 5 months. AWFUL AWFUL experience.
I had a bad experience with La Fete for my June 2011 wedding and would NEVER recommend them to anyone.
We hired La Fete to provide our table linens, centrepieces, candy buffet, the bouquets and boutonnieres for our wedding.
I had spoken to Jasmine a few days before the wedding to sort out details for the day. I agreed that she could set-up most of the decor the night before. She told me she would be at the golf course (where we were having our ceremony and reception) at 3pm the day of the wedding to drop off the bouquets and boutonnieres.
On the day of the wedding, I arrived at the golf course at 11:30am to find everything set up, which meant our orchid centrepieces had been sitting in water since Friday night. Not a big deal....until I noticed she had forgotten to include two key parts of our centrepieces! We had requested (and paid) to have river rocks put in the bottom of every vase, which clearly were missing. Also, we wanted to have turquoise ribbons tied around every vase. Again, missing. I called and left messages for La Fete/Jasmine from 11:30am to 3:30pm almost every half-hour and could not reach anyone! I also sent her an email, but did not receive a reply that day. Also, I was ticked off she had not been truthful with me about how many orchids were needed to pull off the look I wanted for the centrepieces. I asked for one stem of orchids per vase (for each table), not realizing I really needed two stems to make the vase look full. I showed Jasmine a picture of the centrepiece I wanted and she said it was not a problem. So imagine my surprise when I walked into the reception room on the day of the wedding to find that some of the vases contained one stem of orchids and some contained two. If it wasn't for our wedding coordinator at the golf course that drove around town to fix the problem, it would have looked like the florist ran out of flowers and didn't bother coming back. I also noticed that the table linens were wrinkled and the vases had fingerprints all over them.
I was also informed the day of my wedding by the wedding coordinator at the golf course that someone at La Fete, not Jasmine, had set up the room the night before and had left the bouquets and boutonnieres for us. This is not what I had agreed upon with Jasmine.
Two days after the wedding, on Monday, we received a reply from La Fete. From Natalie, who I later found out also works for La Fete. I've never met her in all the times I was at the La Fete office, nor had Jasmine ever mentioned the possibility of someone else setting up the decor for the wedding. Natalie replied to our email, stating that Jasmine had a family emergency and she had set-up the decor for our wedding. She also said she wasn't aware we needed river rocks for our centrepieces. Not once did she apologize for forgetting key elements of our centrepieces.
We have since sent Jasmine another email and still have not heard a reply from her.
I wish we had never hired La Fete to do our wedding and would have gladly paid a bit more to get a good decorator and one who could be reached on the day of our wedding.
I had Jasmine from LaFeteweddings do my Reception and Ceremony Decor.
Both my husband and I were very happy with the quality of the service we received. Her pricing is great compared to other florists in the region but her work is as good.
I loved my tall centerpieces which only cost 37$ and had lost of flowers for that price. She was very quick to reply to my emails specially since I was planning my wedding long distance.
I would defenitely recomment LaFete to anyone. You really don't need to starve yourself to afford flowers for your wedding.
We also hired her for a Day of Coordination. Everything we asked was I planned. There again a great job from Jasmine.
