After a year of planning to do our own flowers we now have a brand new house, a brand new puppy with a chewing fetish, and only about four months to go til the wedding. So we’re realizing we probably need to outsource this one. Has anyone used Trudy’s flowers in Naperville, or can you recommend a florist in the Naperville area? I want very sinple bouquets and corsages, and don’t want to spend a *lot* of money.

I’m sorry I can’t help, but I got excited when I saw this because I was born in Naperville (Edwards Hospital)! I moved when I was 6 but I miss illinois!

Aloha – I haven’t heard anything about them, sorry. I’m in St. Charles though so I would love to know who you wind up working with! Florist is on next months to-do.

I’m going with Wildflower Florist in Naperville! She did my brother and SIL’s wedding—beautiful work for a low budget wedding. She’s located on Washington Street and 87th, near a Walgreens and Creme de la Crumb.

If anyone is thinking of using Trudy’s I STRONGLY advise against it. Our flowers were delivered already wilted, and all cream flowers were covered in streaks of brown. I called to let them know and all I got was excuses and 20 minutes later a $36 credit from a nearly $600 purchase. BUYER BEWARE!

I am working with Anise Arvidson. Her business is called Fiddlehead Flowers, and she works out of her home. As a result, she’s considerably less expensive. I haven’t seen my own wedding flowers of course (my wedding is late August), but Anise came recommended from others in the area and her portfolio is really nice. She will ask what your budget is, and then work within that budget and she won’t push you to go over your limit. She has been great and has even made some good suggestions to me and my mom as to where we can purchase cheap votives (rather than paying for rentals from her). Let me know if you’d like her contact info!

hi there – I found a really great deal from a woman who does flowers out of her home. She is really nice and very reasonable. I got to see sample bouquets and they were awesome. She’s from Bolingbrook and does delivery so it’s pretty close to Naperville. PM or email me ([email protected]) if you want more information.
