I am looking for a florist in philly, and I keep finding Beautiful Blooms in all the magazines and “preferred vendors”. Their work is stunning, but has anyone worked with them and/or can recommend or tell me about their experiences with them? Thanks!

They are everywhere and STUNNING! But their prices match that and they were a bit too expensive for me. I went with Amaranth instead and was very happy.

I used BB for my wedding and they were absolutely fabulous. The flowers were amazing and beyond my expectations, and they were prompt to respond to all of our questions, requests and obviously delivered, set up and deconstructed everything on our wedding day.
They were extremely expensive though, so unless you have an unlimited flower budget, I would at least shop around. I booked them without realizing how expensive they were since my sister used them. My one other critisizm is that when i traveled to their studio to discuss what we wanted, they had absolutely no flowers there to show me or any of the vases as demonstrations. I thought that was kind of strange and I was sort of mad I traveled that far just to have a conversation.

I had a very negitive experance with Beautiful Blooms. We met with them in April 2010 before our wedding and it was a complete waste of time. I had been emailing Beautiful Blooms with our ideas since the winter. Like you, I had seen their work onine/in magazines and was very impressed! Yet when I met with Maya, she greeted us with a blank piece of paper and asked “so what are your ideas”. She repeatedly asked us questions that I has already sent answers to months ago leaving us to reply, “that is in emails we have sent”. We asked for our proposal before we met with her and she was not able to complete this unlike all of the other florists we met with. With this kind of service, I would not consider doing business with Beautiful Blooms for an arrangement never mind thousands of dollars worth of business on the most important day of my life thus far.
Only a month later, I heard from them. I got an email that said:
“I hope this email finds you doing well and enjoying this beautiful day. You will have your proposal on Monday-we apologize for the delay!
Have a great weekend!
I told them that I was extremely disappointed it has taken this long to even hear from someone. This lack of professionalism is completely unacceptable and sadly, I am not the only one to have this sort of experaince with them. And this is how they treat business they haven’t even earned yet. Who knows what kind of responce you would get after you’ve paid your deposit. I booked Nature’s Gallery and LOVED working with them. Gabrielle worked in my budget, was very responsive, and created beautiful work. She even arranged for all of the flowers to be delivered to my husband’s grandparent’s retirement community after the wedding. She was a doll!
