I used Anna Brandt and she was wonderful! The flowers turned out beautifully, and she was very reasonably priced.

@ Neele – – got it!  I would call around to different florists and tell them your 411, you know planning from LA, wedding in Seattle, number of people, venue, etc.. and start to get quotes. That way when you’re in town you can meet with those you feel gave the best quote and/or you got a good vibe from while communicating via the phone. 

If you need any additional Seattle assistance don’t hesitate pm’ing me. I am from LA (all family is still there) and have lived here for 2 years. This wedding planning process has been super fun.  Although my inviations are being done in LA, haahaa.  I am more than happy to assist if you have any questions Wink

I met with three different florist- Loves Me Flowers, Florarama, and Elements in Bloom.  Ultimately, I went with Florarama because she was the most willing to take my budget and give me tons of options in a range of prices so that I could mix and match and choose where to spend my money to get the most out of my floral budget.  She is also very into reusing things in places (like taking your ceremony flowers and your bridesmaids bouquets and incorporating them into your reception decor) so that you can maximize your money.

Other then that, my friend who is getting married in May is using Terra Bella flowers and said that she is very reasonabley priced (this is coming from my friend who used to work as a florist so she is very knowledgable about this part of the wedding planning!)

Good luck with your planning!

I used Miki’s Flowers  http://www.mikisflowers.com/weddings.html   She has a $1500 minimum, but I ended up spending that much on ceremony and reception flowers.  She does a fabulous job. She’s tasteful and professional and an absolute dream to have worked with.  I found out she even did the wedding for two other friends of mine.

Here is a florist that I was considering and may or may not still go with. I love her work, but I am considering nonfloral flowers and arrangements. She has an 8 or 9 hundred dollar minimum. Here is the link: http://gardenpartytogo.com/content/view/18/33/

Actually, on that note, can you gals mention whether the florists you chose had minimums and what they were? We’re probably going to arrange our own arrangements, but I need someone to make my bouquet and all the corsages, so high minimums wouldn’t really work since I don’t need that much.  Any thoughts for someone who might be interested in a pretty small gig?

@Miss Root We had exactly the same experience! I also interviewed Elements in Bloom, Florarama, and Loves Me Flowers. They were all wonderful, but I got the best vibe from Lea at Florarama, and I’m very excited to work with her.

@Sapphirebride None of the three that I just mentioned have minimums. I also was on the lookout for florists who didn’t have a minimum, so that’s part of why I selected them. I was glad to see that they did such beautiful stuff, since I had previously fallen for Floranova, but sadly their minimum was more than we budgeted for flowers.

@LittlestBirds: Thanks, that’ll save me some time pouring over florists and trying to figure out who doesn’t have a minimum!

I’d suggest checking out one of the nicer grocery stores. I just booked Metropolitan Market to do our flowers for about $315. This includes 4 bouquets and a bunch of bouts. They have books full of weddings they’ve done, so definitely experienced.

Sapphirebride, Elements in Bloom will possibly charge you a minimum because she has a minimum for holidays- not sure if NYE translates as a holiday but it might. 

If you’re just looking for bouquets, I would HIGHLY recommend Metropolitan Market.  My friend used them for her bouquets and they were gorgeous- she was working on a tiny budget for her flowers and they did an amazing job.

Thanks for the tip about Metropolitan Market, ladies!  That’s just up the street from my office, I think I’ll run up there at lunch to see what they offer.  Prices sound right!
