- Wedding: May 2011 - Bartram's Garden
The florist I’d been back and forth with for MONTHS decided to bail on me when I was ready to sign the contract. I think she thinks our job is too small for her. 🙁
Can anyone recommend a really good but very affordable florist in the area?

I’ve heard good things about Flowers by Elizabeth. You can do a search for them. Unfortunately, I can’t vouch for them.

We didn’t use her, but I’ve heard that Barb from Belak flowers does a good job and is reasonably priced.

I don’t know how affordable you are looking for, but we are using Nature’s Gallery and are working with Gabriella. She was the most professional, understanding, nice and considerate florist I met with. I highly recommend meeting with her.

I am using flowers by Elizabeth as well. Really liked her – we clicked instantly. Prices are awesome.

I don’t have anyone in Philly, but I have someone in Delco which is still close. Marcus Hook Florist. We were on a strict budget, and they worked with us. The bouquets are substantial and GORGEOUS. I was able to get one bridal bouquet, 3 bridesmaid bouquets, 2 mothers wrist corsages, and 7 boutonnieres for $600. It costs nothing to set up a meeting with them, and they have tons of books you can go through if you don’t have ideas. If you want to see my pics, I would be more than happy to share. Good Luck! =)

Does anyone know if any of these florists would work for a very small order? I’m talking bridal bouquet, one bridesmaid bouquet, 5 bouts, and 2 corsages?
Or does anyone have any experience grabbing some from a local market (center city) and DIYing?

@smackdown- the florist I mentioned will work with any size wedding. They were really nice. You could call them and meet with them- it will cost you nothing but your time, and if you decide it’s not for you, you can go with someone else. They were really nice and I know many people who have had good experiences with them. Good luck to you 🙂

Second Barb from Belak Flowers. Another local bride recommended them. Only florist I had to meet with. She wowwed me; great prices, really knows her stuff and gets the look we’re going for.
