A horrific experience in an Forist" Figli Dei Fiori" - Como, Italy.

Doing wedding flowers in Italy.4/7/09. I ordered my son's wedding flowers from a Florist in Como, Fleur de Fiori connected to the Wedding venue Villa Geno, believing that I would have no problems. However, I was confronted with the special 'focal' flowers of my classic arrangements had not been supplied. In their place I was offered, cheap oriental lillies instead of Scented, large white Casa Blancas. Instead of Birds of Paradise ( chosen specially for the South African groom!) I was offered roses or Agapanthus - not suitable for the ararrangement.!!! The white roses for the Corsages and Bridal Bouquet were also replaced I was by now excedingly annoyed and grossly disappointed - for they had received my order in Italian ,English , Pictures and Latin names a month earlier. They did not supply the vases they promised or the stands or the 60 Large Cala Lilies -the main feature I needed! After ordering 5 stems of Gypsophila I was sent off with 2 crates!!they refused to keep them.!! I spent an hour and a half in their shop and came out of it so very ,very disappointed. I had worked on many websites, with Dutch salesmen and others,sought out flower markets (weds and Sats) - to get this order perfect for the big day. With the help of my sister from America and another friend - we completed the task, with their dodgy replacements!! My recommendation to anyone going to do flowers in Italy....learn the language, visit more than one florist and make your selection!!!! so YOU CAN ENJOY DOING THE FLOWERS FOR YOUR SON/DAUGHTER'S WEDDING. cheers flower friends and lovers, celia murray UK.
