Everyone here seems to be so good at advise thought I'd get your opinions. I recently did all the flowers for my step niece's wedding (photo on profile). I made the bride's bouquet, 3 brides maids bouquets, bouquet to throw, 5 flower girl baskets and mini-veils for them to wear in their hair, all the cousages and boutineers, 2 ringbearer pillows, and also provided alot of the decorations. It cost me $90 for all the flowers and materials. when she asked me how much she owed me - I told her $90 for the materials but the making of the flowers was my gift to them along with the Guestbook and pearl handled knife to serve the cake with. If she would have went to a florest to do all of this, she would have spent at least $300. Her sister came to the house last Saturday and asked me about making her Wedding dress for her. I told her if she would buy the material she needed because I just don't have the $ to spend on it right now and get it to me ASAP (wedding first part of Dec.) that I would try to do it for her but I didn't want to have to rush on it because of my health. I plan on making it for her as my wedding gift to her. Since I don't have lot of money right now I figure I can give her my time it takes to make the dress as a gift. The problem is - Christina told me she would have my $ by next weekend. When I was talking to Joann, she said that Christina told her that all of the flowers were a present and that she didn't owe me anything for them. What should i do? Should I ask her for the money or just let it go and consider myself as giving her a very generous wedding present? I don't want to cause any hard feelings but her husband makes really good money and I really need my money back.
