Weird question, maybe, but I can't uncramp my brain right now due to lack of sleep...

For those of you who've done the bride and groom strawberries, how to you know you're going to find nice, big berries in top condition? Do you travel to all the supermarkets in your area until you find them??

I have an October wedding order for over a dozen Bride&Groom berries, and I'm nervous that come October, my stores won't have any that are worth using. What to do then??

One of you may have the answer...that'd be nice! thumbs_up.gif

Simple. I tell them, if I can find nice berries I'll do the order. If not then no.

But an order for ONE dozen? That would be a no to start with.

Thanks, leahs. You confirmed my thoughts. I politely emailed her to let her know I was declining the order and suggested she contact Shari's instead.

She was originally going to book her groom's cake through me along with the strawberries. But once she decided to eliminate the groom's cake due to budget, it didn't seem worth it to chase down a dozen perfect berries in October.

I appreciate your quick response!
