Alright Bees, I am looking for a reasonably priced florist in the northwest suburbs! My ceremony is in Barrington, IL and my reception is in Streamwood, IL.
I found a florist I love but he priced my bouquet at $175 and my bridesmaids bouquets at $95. I think thats a little high but not sure!
Please share ANY recommendations!

I’m using Eventfully Entwined in Grayslake (a north suburb). My bouquet is $75 and bridesmaids’ are $50 each, I think. The ladies there are crazy, hilarious, and pretty cheap! They’re also really willing to work with you — the first estimate they gave me was a bit high, and they chopped off $50, I think.

I actually found a florist and booked her! Artistic Floral Design in Schaumburg. Valerie is amazing!!! Highly recommend!

@jlpalumbo: I found Valerie at Artistic Floral Design to be very unprofessional. I emailed her asking for a quote and availability a month ago. She said she is available, but cannot give me a quote until after I book a ceremony space (despite that I already had a reception venue booked). She claims she keeps meticulous records and all I would need to do is contact her once I get a ceremony space. I emailed her with my ceremony space and it takes her a week to respond…only that they booked my date already. Meticulous record keeping??? Not even a warning that they had another bride looking into the same date.

@Bazingau: Wow that is absolutely shocking to hear!!! She was so professional and prompt. She even response to emails I send in the middle of the night! She was prompt on everything and even gave me a quote while I was on the phone with her the very first time we spoke. She has also sent me tons of pictures of ideas she has and other weddings she has done. I’m sorry you didn’t have the same great experience I continue to have with her!
