Hi Boston Bees!
I’m still looking for the right florist, especially because what I need is very simple — 3 bouquets and 3 boutonnieres. All the Boston florists I’ve looked into charge far more than what I think the flowers are worth (though I’m willing to be flexible!). Does anyone know of a Boston area home-based florist (meaning one who works out of his/her home, without a store front)? I’d like to try all my options!
Thanks so much!

My florist is Mr. Flower in Revere, MA, she’s been doing it for 20 years very nice old lady and she’s doing all my 5 bouqets including mine, 5 bouts and tulle for church for $850, plus 2 ring pillows and flowers for our moms

Thank you for the tip! I think going just outside of Boston might be the key! Anyone else have any florists I can contact? I’d love as much input as possible!

I’m using Jayne’s Flowers. She’s based downtown and has a stall there but no fancy storefront, and seems to get a ton of business word-of-mouth which I think is a good sign. She quoted me 100 for my bouquet and 85 for the bridesmaids. Can’t remember bouts but I want to say 15. She was a good listener too, so she really got what I wanted even though I didn’t know exactly how to describe it. Hope she works out well for both of us! 617-285-7363

Have you checked Craigslist? My Sister found a couple on there that were very reasonable.
