JenWed2016:   Might be a bit far away but I was so very happy with Viburnum Designs in Princeton, NJ.  My budget was low, (~1,700) as we had a small wedding, but the flowers were beautiful far beyond my expectations.

Falls Flowers will be doing my ceremony/personal flowers and Triple Tree Flowers (Amish flower growers from Lancaster) will be doing the reception centerpieces.

In addition to those, I met with Carl Alan, Beautiful Blooms, and Sweet Pea. Vito at Carl Alan was great. The only one I didn’t like was Sweet Pea–I didn’t really feel like she was listening to me when I described what I wanted. 

Falls Flowers was definitely the most open minded in terms of not pushing me have bigger centerpieces, more this, more that, etc.

  • Wedding: October 2015

JenWed2016:  I am getting married in October and I am using Buttercup, the floral/décor division of my caterer, Jeffrey A Miller (JAM). My budget is under $2500. You can check both of them out here: http://jamcater.com/. So far everything has been great with Buttercup. I’ve worked with two people thus far and both of them remember my name and my details every time I call them (on their cell phones, no less!). They really specialize in natural/organic/rustic arrangements, which is what I am going for. However, I have definitely seen weddings of theirs with more tight/modern bouquets, proving that they can do anything. The biggest thing that has stood out to me so far is that they really keep in mind the BIG picture – how every piece and detail works with the DIFFERENT spaces at my venue. Often times, as a bride, it’s hard to translate the picture in my head (and on my Pinterest boards!) into reality, and Buttercup has made me confident that they will make it all happen for the big day. Check them out!

I chose Jewel Osco. The only downside is they don’t deliver. But heres what we got…bridal bouquet, toss bouque, 7 bouts, 2 corsages, and flower girl basket with silk fall leaves. Plus I upgraded to mango calla lilles all for $442. Most flower shops around my area of the Chicago suburbs wanted between $700-$1000.

I am not in your area, but we used Whole Foods near our place and very happy with them. Great and fresh flowers, caters to your needs, delivers to site, can have any flowers you want, and 1/3 of florists price. You should check WF near you because they do provide florist services for wedding. *Oh, and not reccommending Costco.
