Look...Moops said:I did choose to go with my original designer. That is correct. It seems to me that since a refund check was issued, they were agreeing to return it when told that the date had passed and we would not be needing their services. They only cancelled it when they found out we were still having a wedding. I contracted with my original designer after the check was returned to me and vefore payment was stopped. My caterer had their name as our original florist and called to order extra flowers. That's why they knew we had a wedding.
YOU chose to go with the "original designer"
YOU chose not to use the "florist" which you were contracted with.
YOU chose to sign the contract that said "non-refundable deposit" in order to "book" the wedding.
YOU chose to not drive yourself to the florist and write up a new contract.
YOU chose to try and pull one over on the "florist". THEY CHOSE to "call you on it"!
THEY CHOSE TO STOP PAYMENT for REFUND, probably for breach on contract on YOUR part.
Arguing with me IS NOT going to get you the answer you want.
Call JUDGE JUDY and see if she will hash this out for you!!
