    I live in this area and trust me please don’t do this my friend has gone through 3 florists in this area because of bad judgement and she lives here and has met these people face to face. If you need a reference I have a wonderful florist very creative and couture styling I would guess average pricing. The company is called Bay Bouquet they are in Tampa and they are doing my wedding in St. Pete. Their Phone # is 813-258-2686 baybouquet.com

     

    Hope this helps  ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have absolutely no knowledge of the area seeing as I’m in Australia, but I’d hate to book a florist who did a bad job. I would at least ask for some examples of their work and look online to try and find some reviews.

    That said, I’m a sucker for online reviews. I won’t even book a restaurant without checking on Urban Spoon first!

    I booked my florist from their website, based on vendor suggestions from my venue. Does your venue have any suggestions? Can you find any reviews of them online? I’m not nervous, but the hotel has a great reputation and I’m SURE they wouldn’t lead me astray. Plus their reviews were great online. I was finally able to meet wtih them and everything was as expected when I met in person.

    Well, I am in the Tampa as well! I am not sure about specific florists in the area but I do know my cousin works on weddings as a planner on the side (although I’m sure you might already have a planner) and she might be able to help you. Would you like her information?

    I would base the decision on more than just phone quotes.  I wold also check out their web page, if they have one to see examples of thier work.  Check reviews on weddingwire.com, weddinbee.com and yelp. 

    I think seeing exapmles of work is very important.  My florist never sent me sample pictures of our church decorations and I was disappointed at the result on the big day.

    I am having a destination wedding in Vermont and facing similar issues. Luckily- the Burlington area isn’t all that big. The florsist was recommended through the venue, she has a wonderful site with many testimonials and examples of her work and many pins on pinterest, and I was also able to speak with other brides she has worked with. For me- I feel like you can really make an informed decision without meeting someone if you put in the extra time. She has been amazing to work with so far!

    I hope this helps.
