Amanda- What part of town are you in? I found three that I liked that are willing to work w/ you. Gerard Boeh in the Cranberry area is VERY reasonable, as well as Amaryllis in Cranberry. Amaryllis is a little more but haute couture of flowers if you know what I mean. Colagrande’s was great too- they are out in Murrysville or something on the east end of town. I’m from the north so can’t recall exactly.

I’m looking for a Florist in the Indiana, PA/Blairsville, PA area!  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thanks 🙂

Just wanted to add a follow up. Amaryllis is going out of business so steer clear- I have about 8 weeks to find a new florist (sigh). Reed and Petals in North Hills is a good alternative if you looked into Amaryllis and liked their style.

Hi Amanda – I also live in the North Hills area, but my wedding/reception was in the Oakmont area.  I used Alex’s Flowers in Oakland and was very pleased.  He is extremely personal, and figured out ways to do everything I wanted within my budget (which was about $1000 – not sure how yours is), including some sort of quirky, non-traditional requests.
He’ll meet with you at length to discuss everything that you want and give you a quote without any obligation on your part, so if you have the time it can’t hurt!

I used Jim Ludwig’s Blumengarten, located in the Strip District.  Jim, the owner was super helpful during our consultation and respected the fact that we were on a budget and that I wanted to do some things on my own.  He even ordered flowers in bulk for us and gave us the wholesale price so that we could save money on centerpieces. That made me sooo happy.

 Mr. Lollipop now uses them exclusively for his special occasion flower orders and we still get good service.

I am using Dee from Dees Florals.  She works out of her home which keeps the cost down and all of her work I’ve seen in beautiful.  She was really open to all of my ideas and I think that everything will turn out fabulous.

Amanda, I’m in the North Hills too… and had the EXACT SAME thing happen to me and my Mom when we went to meet with our first florist.  Granted, we knew we had no idea what they should cost, but that doesn’t mean they should laugh when they ask for your budget!  I wonder if we went to the same place…..

We are still in the process of trying to chose a florist, so this is a great post.  Thanks for the suggestions ladies!

Amanda,

Try Mocha Rose in Lawrenceville – she can work with virtually any budget. She did the wedding of a friend of mine whose total wedding budget was 6K, and her flowers were lovely.

 

By The Way, this is my first post ever – Hi All!!

I second Mocha Rose (April is the owner)– she did flowers for my best friends’ wedding a few years when she was just starting out. BEAUTIFUL work and such a nice person.

I’m using Harold’s Florist right in the DoubleTree downtown. I thought they had great pricing, and they’re right where my reception is!
