I think a lot of them opt into Teleflora, I could be wrong though, but I imagine that brings some online business to them. I think you’ll see more varied results if you go to see the shops and get quote in person.

I’ve never researched this, so I do not know the answer, but I suspect that the florists whose websites you’re visiting all have agreed to participate in/use the services of Teleflora so that if a customer contacts a florist in Texas to send a bouquet to his mother who lives in North Dakota, he’ll at least have some idea of what he’s purchasing and what the florist local to his mother will be delivering. I’m thinking that this allows customers to choose from a set number of pre-determined, standard, arrangements.  However, I’m also betting that your local florist has many other options that he or she could show to you/create for you that may not be available through the Teleflora service.

See if your venue suggests any particular florists (if you have a venue picked). My venue had a list of suggested vendors and one or two I had the same problem that you did (Teleflora or some other company) but the majority were really event-specific and had tons of information on their websites about their packages. Another option is to view florists on WeddingWire or some site like that and find florists that way.

I got quotes from 4 florist companies and didn’t like any of them. They all use companies like TeleFlora. I ended up making my own decor and bouquets from silk flowers.
