OMG! Aberdeens exceeded my expectations and MORE! I was so pleased with my flowers and still am every time I view my pictures. The richness in color, the professional looking arrangments and bouquets wowed my guests. The experience was great and the customer service was perfect. Even when I became indecisive they were very pleasant and offered amazing consults to guide my decision. I can't even imagine using another service. The expert advice, the quality and the price made this company the best choice and all-stars in my book!

I rate them high because of my representative. Paula was amazing, very helpful and very upbeat and a joy to work with. She made many suggestions and really guided me. My experience leading up to the wedding was great.

The day of is a different story. Our contract was very specific as far as where things go and when they should be dropped off.

I gave the florist the bridal suite room number and that the guys flowers need to be at the church by 1pm and she ensured me the florist would pin the flowers on all the guys and then put all the pew bows on.

The delivery man did not bring my flowers up. He left them at the front desk while I wondered where they all were. We finally called down and the front desk said he left them there. Then we get the flowers upstairs and all the guys crosages and pins were with our flowers when they were supposed to be at the church.

Then I find out later that the delivery person didn't put the pew bows on, ONE OF MY GUESTS PUT THEM ON FOR ME before guests entered the church.

Not to mention the bridesmaids bouquets were pathetic, they were worse then the flower girl baskets. My reception flowers were supposed to have sprayed peach hydrangeas and they were barely sprayed (on each centerpiece only half were sprayed, looked weird).

Would I recommend Paula as an individual? Absolutely, she was great to work with. Would I recommend Aberdeen's for your wedding, hell no. You'll be dissapointed with the turnout. I had such high hopes and was definitely let down. Sad because the flowers were what I was looking forward to the most.

Aberdeens responded with the following comments:

This is a pack of lies. We are in the process of seeking legal remedy

The front desk refused to let us go to the room since we were not guests of the hotel. The desk called the room, and the wedding planner instructed us to leave the flowers for her to gather.

We offer mock-ups of all centerpieces and take pictures of all arrangements so there are no questions or room for interpretation. This bride did not opt for a mock-up.

Her review also stated earlier that we failed to put aisle bows on the pews, and that her guests put them on...she removed that part of the review after we showed her pictures proving we did put them up.

This is a slanderous, fraudulent review with alternative motives. We stand by our work.

PS, The bride confirmed it was the wedding planner who answered the phone, and we have the desk attendant's signature on the order to verify everything was delivered and that we were instructed to leave all flowers behind. It happens all the time where we are asked at the last minute to leave bouts, etc. at the hotel for pictures. Last minute changes happen on a weekly basis.

I got married June 21, 2014. I was so happy with the flower arrangements for my wedding. My bouquet was so beautiful. It was not outrageously priced and it looked so pretty. The bridesmaids flowers were so pretty as well. I was so happy with every single flower we got from them. I would highly recommend this vendor for wedding flowers.

These guys were easy to work with considering I was planning from across the country. I basically sent them pictures of my vision and colors and they exceeded expectations! I gave them my budget of $2000 and they did their best to work around it, as opposed to other florists who were quoting me $5000+. Would definitely recommend this company for future brides in the Chicagoland area!

We used Aberdeens as our wedding florist on April 5, 2014. Everything was absolutely perfect! Joe at Aberdeens is amazing! Our center pieces were more then I could have expected. Joe exceeded our expectations. He took our vision and displayed it better then I could have ever imagined. From day one Joe was amazing! Everyone loved our flowers and my bouquet was the most beautiful thing i've ever seen in my life. My toss bouquet was also beautiful. The boutonnieres and corsages were also so beautiful.Thank you aberdeens!

My experience with this florist was amazing from start to finish!!! I mainly dealt with the cutest little elderly woman named Gloria, she was so extremely patient and nice to me. I must have changed the date of my wedding about 4 times & my order about 3-4 as well. She was so great when I met with her to pick out my bouquets, corsages, & boutonnieres, & gave me advice on what to pick without pressuring me into something I may not have wanted. She was so awesome, & made sure to confirm everything with me. They delivered all of the flowers to the church for me, & set everything up as well. I loved my bridal bouquet so much I preserved it & am displaying in my home!

I cannot begin to tell you how ecstatic I was with the flowers I received from Aberdeens! I was originally nervous about working with them because one of the other florists I met with came flat out to speak negatively of them (however since I was not impressed with my meeting with her her opinion was minimal to me). Their older reviews were not so good but with the updated reviews and the flexibility and attentiveness of the consultant I met with convinced me to give them a try. My flowers were BEAUTIFUL!! And they were the only florists I met with that could give me calla Lillie's (in different colors) at a reasonable price (callas are their "in season" flowers so no extra cost!). In addition, I received several calls to ensure that EVERYTHING about my order would be correct AND the delivery guy was EARLY and helped my groomsmen set up some things at the chapel! The flowers lasted in my hotel room without water for 2 days and in my mothers home for a week and a half after my wedding. I could not speak more highly of them!!

Aberdeens was wonderful to work with! Paula helped us design beautiful flowers. I was so impressed by the quality and size of both my bouquet and my bridesmaids bouquets. The altar arrangements and centerpieces were also beautiful. Everything was better than I even imagined and great prices as well.

I love Aberdeens and would recommend them to anyone I know getting married!

We were very nervous with the floral selection because we did very large centerpieces that were very detailed. This company was amazing!! The designers were fabulous, flowers were fresh and very well put together, and the customer service was unbelievable. Bouquets were to die for! Pricing was better then we thought. This is a family owned business that really cares about your special day and makes sure you are taken care of. My sincere thanks to Joe and his staff. Job well done and I will recommend them to my family and friends. Look no further.

Aberdeen's was absolutely amazing. We had a baseball themed wedding, and Joe absolutely loved it. He suggested ideas, and did an excellent job incorporating it (and our special requests) without being tacky. The flowers were beautifully arranged and survived through photos, despite the fact the wedding was in June. Also, they are affordable, which is always a plus. I would definitely recommend them!

I lived not too far from Aberdeens... always driving passed. When I started planning my wedding, I called a different florist because they were family friends. They were also super expensive. So I did a little digging and I was reminded of Aberdeens. Stupid, forgetful me! I called up and scheduled a Saturday appointment with Gloria. She is the sweetest lady! We talked about what I liked, roses and hydrangeas and peonies. Gloria explained to me that peonies get really wilty really quickly, so we axed them. She explained to me all of the wedding packages, but I didn't need all of the items in the packages, so I ordered everything a la carte. I ordered 1 bridal bouquet, 1 moh bouquet, 1 toss bouquet, 1 flower girl basket, 5 corsages, 5 plain boutineers, 4 fancy boutineers, 1 ring bearer boutineer, 1 round bowl for the head table, 18 centerpieces, and 2 large vases for the ceremony (that were then moved into the reception hall). I spent around $1,700 which is crazy cheap!

The flowers were stunning! My only advice is.... do not get the silver sparkle baby's breath. The silver glitter ended up EVERYWHERE! Oh well... it was cute.

I am so glad that I chose Aberdeen's for my wedding flowers. Not only were our flowers and center pieces stunning in person, but they photographed impeccably and lasted all day (and several days after!) ! I had several people comment on our photos and ask if the color was enhanced to make the flowers look more vibrant- nope, they really were that beautiful! The owner, Joe, was very helpful in selecting creative arrangements that were unique and stayed within our budget. He listened to my concerns, requests and ideas and did his best to make them into a reality for my big day. Aberdeen's was one of my favorite vendors to work with for my wedding, and I would definitely recommend them!

I recently got married and used Aberdeens Wedding Florist. Picking out flowers was one of my least favorite things to do out of the wedding. Aberdeens was extremely helpful. They have great taste and i trusted their opinion. They worked with us in setting up a payment plan up until the wedding and they were very flexible. The flowers were absolutely beautiful. I could not have had better colors and flowers that went with our theme wedding. They are very friendly and professional. They delivered the flowers to two different places and pinned on the guys boutonnieres. I am happy with their service and recommend them.

The flowers were perfect for the wedding! I did not have a lot of direction with what I wanted for our flowers, and Helena and Maureen helped us out, finding the perfect flowers for the wedding. The floral arrangements were classic. Maureen looked at my dress and then told me what flowers would work the best for our wedding. The florist arrived early to my house on the wedding day and got everyone the flowers that needed them!

Great company to work with, people couldn't believe how much I actually paid to have my flowers done. You're able to chose a package that works best for you (no worries, you can add additional items as well if needed) and pick ANY TYPE OF FLOWER YOU WANT. Ladies, I really don't know how you can possibly beat that deal. They are great to work with and the flowers were GORGEOUS.

Gloria was so nice! She sat down with my mother and I and helped us figure out exactly what we wanted. The price was very reasonable, the flowers were fresh and beautiful, delivery was on time and hassle free, and everything was more beautiful than I even imagined!

I can't say enough about this florist. Gloria went out of her way to make sure that our day was special. Even with some last minutes changes, she was right on top of it. Day of wedding she was on time, friendly and helpful. she made sure the runner at church was tacked down and that things that went to the hall were there on time. My bouquet lasted over a week! Would recommend them in a heartbeat!

My husband and I used Aberdeen's for our wedding flowers. They only do weddings so they know exactly what kind of flowers and designs many people want to use. Our flowers lasted all night and looked beautiful! They even had the flowers done early on the wedding day! Thank you for everything!

The service and quality of the flowers were exceptional for the value. I was able to get centerpieces, my bridal bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets, butonnaires, corsages, church flowers, presentaion flowers, etc for a very low price. I was also able to pick out any flower I wanted. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would recommend this vendor for any bride on a budget that wants an elegant and beautiful look.

I used the Aberdeens location on Harlem Avenue. I am very happy with them. They did a splendid job. The flowers lasted all night long. They came to the house and helped the groom and groomsmen with their boutineres. Also they went and decorated the church before the ceremony. Absolutely gorgeous flowers. Very professional and detailed service.

Aberdeens was amazing! The flowers they helped us choose came out beautiful! Everyone, including my mom, was beyond pleased with all the flowers, from the bouquets to the centerpieces. The flowers are kind of pricey, which is why I put a 4.5 for value, but I hear flowers are expensive everywhere unless you make your own bouquets, etc. The centerpieces were such a hit and people took them home at the end of the night. My bouquet was gorgeous and my girls flowers were perfect. The flowergirl's basket was great, she was happy to keep it. We even got a beautiful arch for the ceremony and we moved it to the cocktail hour location which looked great. I would recommend Gloria highly, she has been in the flower business for a long time (I think she said 30 or 35 years) and I had no idea about flowers, but once I showed her my girls dress colors (three different fall colors) and told her its a fall theme, she knew exactly what would look good- and it did! She did a wonderful job and even confirmed everything the week before. Thanks Aberdeen's!!!

When we first met with a planner at the florist location, the lady was really personable. She brought out many different flowers to help us choose. The process was quick and simple. She even gave us some flowers to bring home. However, since they don't hold regular store hours, sometimes you don't reach anyone when you call. Otherwise, they're pretty good for a great price as well.

My son and daughter in law just had their wedding Aug. 11th. Aberdeens was their florist. Starting with the sales gal to the delivery of the flowers it was
stress free. You tell them what you want and they take care of the rest.
My daughter in law wanted nothing but red roses, bouquets, centerpieces for the tables, you name it. I have never seen more perfect symmetical opened roses ever. She had 9 bridesmaids, groomsmen, 2 flower girls, a ring bearer and 20 centerpieces for the tables and not one rose looked wilted. People kept asking how they did the centerpieces to be so symmetrical. I'm sure if I went elsewhere it would have cost me twice as much. I would recommend Aberdeens to everyone. You will not be sorry!

My Flowers were beautiful - exactly what I had pictured. They were super easy to work with. I was also able to bring in alot of my own things to add. The prices were great especially for a large wedding. They have been around for years and it shows in their work. I recieved many compliments on the arangements and on the bouquets. They dropped off at several locations for no extra charge. I was very happy with them. I would recomend them to anyone.

I was really glad that we had went with Aberdeens during the economy and their great record. When I first went to go see them, I was pretty turned off by the saleswoman who was extremely pushy and seemed to just know everything, where I was wrong on it all. I over looked her and focused on the fact that they were a huge company, had been around since my mom got married, and would be there the day we needed them. (I have heard stories about smaller businesses going under now and brides lost on what to do!)

When we met with the florist she was much better, very sweet, informative, and open to what ever we had wanted. I had no idea what I really wanted and she was great with finding my taste and making suggestions, never pushing anything on me.

The day of, the were on time and made the deliveries to the correct locations, without any issues. The flowers were stunning and I could have not been happier. They do amazing work!

Very happy with my flowers! They were beautiful and lasted all day...actually lasted for a week afterwards! Depsite the flowers being quite a bargain, they spared no expense and made sure all the accents were amazing. My flowers were roses, orchids, and picasso lillies. My only wish is that would have had books to look at or sample arragements at the meeting in Arl Hts. Although I came with photos of what I was looking for, I would have changed a few options had I seen examples prior.

The bouquets were extremely thick and full of fresh flowers. Only complaint were the men's boutineers bled against dark suites so make sure don't go cheap on them.

Overall very happy, good delivery and excellent value for what you get.

Aberdeens wedding flowers did a wonderful job with the wedding, I chose three different centerpieces and they turned out beautifully. The bouquets, bouts, and corsages were arranged nicely and looked great in the pictures. They delivered the bouquets directly to the bridal room in the morning and delivered the bouts to he guys at the church. They came back to set up the flowers, too. They offered several packages for us to choose from and it was reasonably priced. The only thing that I would have liked a bit better, was quicker response rate. But, overall, everything worked out and the lowers were fresh and beautiful

We were happy with Aberdeen’s Wedding Florist. Cindy wrote out our initial contract and Bonnie helped us figure out exactly the flowers we wanted, they were both very professional and helpful. The reason we have chosen this company over four other florists was the flexibility, we were able to change our flowers up to two weeks before our wedding. The flowers were beautiful and fresh, however, we were promised they will be sprayed to match our colors which didn’t happen as well as the throw bouquet was made with mums and one calla lily in the middle. The bridal/bridesmaids bouquets were beautiful, made after a few pictures I emailed them. Overall satisfied but I think for the amount of money we paid we could have gotten more flowers.

Aberdeen's was easy to work with. They were on time, easy to reach, flexible with order changes, and helpful with selections. To me flowers are just expensive for something that just ends up dying, but my flowers were nicely arranged and they were stunning. They held together wonderfully, and actually lived in a vase for 3 weeks after my wedding. Aberdeen's only does wedding flowers, which I feel was a safe route, because they have experience, and they don't get backed up with orders since they limit the amount per weekend.

Aberdeen's did a wonderful job on my flowers. They were so patient with me and worked with me over and over again (after several theme changes) to make sure that I got exactly what I was looking for. Gloria was fantastic to work with. I got so many compliments on my flowers at the reception. They know exactly what they are doing. They are also flexible having a satellite "store" at the House of Brides in Schaumburg. It made things very convenient for my mother to attend appointments. They were on time delivering flowers to my house and at the reception hall. My sister-in-law who is getting married in May also booked with Aberdeen's. My mom got her wedding flowers from Aberdeen's 36 years ago and now I know why they are still in business. I would recommend them to anyone!

I went with Aberdeen's after extensive research on what I wanted and how much other vendors were charging. I went to a bridal expo and had one some package.....I wasn't really sure how this played off during the contract signing but I know that I compared them to other places and they matched everything and even gave me $50 off my package for going with them. I wanted blue hydrangeas in winter and they got me that. I opted to buy my own vases so that they were less expensive and they were very accomodating. The only thing was that their office hours are strange. Other than that, everything went perfectly.

I didn't like that they were only available on Monday and Wednesday nights from 6-8:30 to talk to on the phone. they also had Saturday hours. They were willing to accomodate with me when I wanted to alter my contract. I would recommend them. Read less

In highschool I did research on this company and really liked them. I went to a bridal expo and I won money off from their package. I worked with a man named John at this location. I called a lady named Jill (815) 375-1818 and she would set up our apts. He was the most amazing person to work with, I would recommend him across the board. He gave me lots of ideas and really worked on helping me get the lowest price. I went to many other vendors that would make me choose my flowers that day I saw them. Here I was able to change my mind even 2 months beforehand and still almost have the same price.
I found some picture from a wedding magazine and asked him for that. He did that and more. My flowers were absoutley gorgeous. My bridesmaid bouquets and mine were amazing. The lady came at 9:00a.m. to set up earlier then stated but still good. I was a little upset when they got their because the bridal boquets were a little brown on the blue bird roses but she just took of the few bad flowers which she used as the flowers for the flower girl to toss. Then they had a beautiful basket of flowers for the flower girl that looked like the bridesmaids but in a beauitful basket. I was not expecting that. I had many extra boutineres since those are unlimited. I even recieved one extra bridesmaid boquets which was good since during the ceremony one got ruined by the girl accidentally holding it out of the limo and dropping it.
The ones at my reception were to die for. I did both small and big centerpiece all my guest said they had never seen centerpiece like these before. Many people took them home including my family the flowers lasted over a week.
My one negative I have is that the flowers to the church arrived 10mins before my ceremony started so i was not happy with that and the women taking them out dropped them. Also she forgot to put the ribbions and during my ceremony she asked if she could put them up. I would not recommend that driver. and next compliant I have that is mine own fault is that the bluebird roses that I picked out were a little dead when they got there but that was my choice of flower.
Overall I would use them again but they only do weddings.

The sales woman for this vendor was really pushy when we won the David's bridal contest. We were just happy it was not a scam! We did get a lot for our money and I know that Bonnie knew what she was talking about when we went in to take down our orders. I loved the way all of the flowers turned out but the hot pink callalillies for a female usher did not match the hot pink ribbon tied to just one corsage so that looked a little tacky in pictures. The saleswoman showed me a gorgeous bouquet that I wanted re-created and when we went to order, Bonnie didn't know which picture I had been shown. The cascade was stick straight and short and was not at all what I expected. The pink flowers turned out burgandy. The bridesmaids flowers were lovely and just what I had hoped. The delivery was early also which was great.

The flowers were delivered on time, but I was suppose to have a consultant included in the price, to pin the boutonniere's on the Grooms Men and also make sure that the bridesmaids were provided with the correct bouquets. The flowers were just delivered to the hotel and the concierge had the flowers brought up to my suitel. The delivery person set up the reception area and again left the building without making sure that things were the way I requested. My family has used this wedding florist several times before, but it seems to me that there has been a lack in the quality of service for my wedding.

Joe is the owner at Aberdeens. He is a bit unorganized but lucky for him Gloria is there to save his butt. I met with Joe and completed a plan for my wedding flowers. A week later I wanted to make a change and Aberdeens could not find my contract. Gloria came to the rescue and together we filled out a new order (this time I made sure to get a paper copy). I picked a variety of flowers in many colors for my boquets. Some of the flowers I picked didn't make it into the boquet and was a bit disappointed but I figured it was an ordering issue or poor quality so I didn't let it ruin my big day. None the less, the flowers we had were fabulous and good quality for the money. Aberdeens said they would email a contract and confirm via email a week before the event and I never recieved anything. As I spoke with the women on the phone to confirm the order she could barely read what was written on the contract. Aberdeens still does their contracts pen and paper and stick them in a filing drawer. Just make sure that you keep tabs on your order and get copies. Aberdeens is in need of a computer contract system so that customer contracts don't get distorted or lost.

Flowers were nice, just come in with a picture of what you want. There are a few things you can exchange if you are not catholic. Lots of options. I loved my bouquet and they matched the pictures I brought in perfectly.

On the down side, sometimes they were hard to get a hold of by phone. Flowers for the cake are expensive because you have to pay per flower. so look for other places to do that.

Overall, they are nice and had good flowers.

The flowers turned out great! The process was what the downside was. Sometimes, it would take a while for the person in charge of our flowers to respond to a request or question. However, they were able to make some adjustments towards the end as I found out that someone could be in the wedding that wasn't able to before. So I just paid on the day of my wedding for the couple extras at the end. The person who went over the color of the flowers wasn't very personable. However, I think that the price was reasonable and the person who came the day of the wedding did a great job putting it all together and working around the photographer. We went to the Schaumburg place located in Bridesmart.

After becoming a David's Bridal monthly winner, and reading some reviews online, I was a little wary when I went into the Arlighton Heights location to meet with Bonnie. I definitely wasn't assured by their "display" in the corner of a bridal salon but after talking over my concept and ideas we came up with a design that worked for our wedding. I think it helped that in advance of my first consultation I had gone to two other florists to discuss colors and options. So, not only did I already know what another florist would charge but I had a much better idea of what flower types and colors I wanted. I would definitely recommend to prospective brides (especially with the way their "deals" work) that you go in prepared so that you can make an educated decision. We went with the Economy Package Plan - normally $699 but I got it for $350 + 1 extra bridesmaid $45 and toss away $25 + tax $43.05 & delivery $70 for a total of $533.05 which beat the other two quotes I had gathered so I felt that it was a good deal. The flowers turned out pretty nice and the overall experience was okay!

I was very happy with our Bouquets, however, I was disappointed with our arrangements for the church. The arrangements were supposed to be the same colors as the bouquets, however the flowers were a mix of carnations, which they spray painted some of them to be red, but they looked orange! Our bouquets were red roses and red calla lillies!
Also, the person we spoke to when we booked this florist told us that the delivery person would remain at the church to make sure the bridal party all had their flowers pinned on correctly. Unfortunately, all the flowers being delivered to the church were just left at the alter before anyone from our bridal party arrived. Very disappointing.

Bonnie was professional and knowledgeable - some other team members were not, so I always made sure to talk directly to Bonnie. The bridal bouquet had tulips and survived better than the bridesmaid bouquets with roses, despite all of their warnings about never using tulips. The roses in the bridesmaid bouquets and reception centerpieces didn't seem to be fresh. We asked for a 125-foot aisle runner, but the actual runner only reached about 2/3 of the way down the aisle. I can't rationalize spending upwards of $2500 on flowers, which is where most other florists were quoting, but the $1000 I spent here didn't seem to show. All in all the flowers were adequate, but I wouldn't recommend to others.

They aren't open every day of the week so trying to get in touch with them is a little tricky. They too don't like letting the bride choose what she wants. Eventually they do, but they try to get you to do what they want, not what you want. They are EXTREMELY well priced. I got all of my flowers for less than $1000 for orchids and calla lilies.

I met with an employee at their location in the House of Brides-Schaumburg. The flowers we had originally agreed upon looked much smaller than what we were originally shown. We decided to upgrade the flowers to a larger center piece which was nearly three times more expensive. We were also told there was a $150 charge to see a sample of the center pieces any time prior to the wedding. The employee arranging the flowers on the day of the wedding was not the person we met previously and were told would be putting together the center pieces. The upgraded center pieces were sparse at best. There was tons of greenery, which I specifically said I didn't care for, and no flowers. We requested hydrangeas so the center pieces would looked full and there were at most three in each one. The employee tried to tell me that they looked fine and I explained to her what my expectations of the center pieces were. She said it wasn’t too late to change them and had three hydrangeas per center piece added. There was clearly a miscommunication between employees and the money we spent was no where near the money they spent on the flowers.

I wish I would of looked around at other florists ,but I got a phone call that I won a drawing through David's Bridal. So, I thought it would take out any more stress by just going to them. If you love roses in November they are great but they really did not give me any options besides roses. Everything was beautiful but I'm not sure I'd recommend them to anyone.

The large alter arrangments were nothing like I had anticipated. They looked more like funeral arrangements. Way too many carnations in all the arrangements when I specifically stated that I despise regular carnations. I paid for 2 bowl arrangements for my dessert display and only received 1. The most disappointing of all was my Bridal Bouquet. I cried when I saw it. I was very disappointed. The original Sales Consultant knew exactly what I was talking about and what I wanted. Then, due to a shortage of staff, I was turned over to a person I had never worked with and she fouled everything up...my colors were purple & fuschia...not a drop of purple in the reception arrangements.

Aberdeens responded with the following comments:

To all who read this - Aberdeens went into a bit of a tail-spin for a few weeks when one of our key employees/designers took ill and was hospitalized.

She is back, and I have TWO newly hired consultants to fill voids like this when they occur.

I met with Leslye and Terry twice since their wedding. We did offer refunds, etc.

Our procedure(s); after we do our final consultation, we send an e-mailed copy of the order to our brides, AND call approx two weeks prior to the event to re-confirm everything.

Making mistakes in business is one thing...doing what it takes to fix things so they do not happen again is another. I feel we are doing all we can so that the problems Leslye experienced do not happen again.

We ordered $1,400.00 of flowers, the bouquets were supposed to be medium they were small less then ten flowers a piece, my bouquet was the same size and very disappointing. The Reception flowers were small bowls that sat on top of expensive 27" vases. They looked horrible and cheap. The flowers consisted of hydrangeas with four roses and four filler flowers these were over $500.00 for 8 arrangements! The head table was supposed to have misc. flowers laying throughout the table along with bouquet holders. The only thing delivered was a flower arrangement that was not on my order and it didn't match anything. It was pink flowers and my flowers were lavender and white. Then to top it off they tried to charge us more money after the wedding for flowers they didn't even deliver ... really I would never go back here or order anything from this vendor.

Then to top it off they tried to charge us more money after the wedding for flowers they didn't even deliver ... really I would never go back here or order anything from this vendor. Read less

Aberdeen�s Flowers were a major disappointment. They describe them as large, beautiful arrangements but they turned out to be small chunks of foam barely covered by greens and a few flowers on a plastic dish. The �long and low� head table arrangement that was suppose to cover the front of the head table and be almost 4 feet long, was about 18 inches long and look ridiculous on the big table. The bouquets were also disappointing, mine was missing the small accent flowers. The worst is by the time the flowers are dropped off it is too late. You just have to deal with it. More or less my opinion was the I paid way too much for flowers and should have gotten better. When I called to tell Aberdeen�s about the missing flower and the small arrangements they were polite and said maybe they could give me some free flowers. But that didn�t fix the fact that on my wedding day my flowers looked cheap.

I won a drawing at a bridal expo and thought I was getting a deal, but it turned out to be a nightmare. First, I was assigned to a rude consultant (Nancy Stoker). She was condescending, unprofessional, and would not listen to my ideas. Amongst several other reasons, I found myself very upset during our meeting and just agreed to what she thought so I could get the meeting over with. Picking out flowers for your wedding should be fun and exciting, but was the complete opposite. After leaving in tears, I decided to call and cancel my order even though it meant losing my deposit, but they convinced me to change consultants and reorder. The second time around with a different consultant seemed very promising. Paula Sirovatka listened to my ideas, was kind, and I left feeling much better about what my flowers were going to look like. At least I thought I did!
I was HORRIFIED and embarrassed when my flowers arrived the morning of my wedding! First, my bouquet had bright pink flowers instead of a soft/blush pink and was way too big! They noted on the contract that I was 5’1” so they could modify the size of the bouquet, that didn’t happen. The roses were also starting to brown and wilt! This had me in tears an hour before walking down the aisle. It was suggested we just cut out the pink roses all together, so I did just that. Second, the bridesmaids’ bouquets were lopsided, stems were way too long, and looked awkward. Their roses were also browning and wilting! Third, the groomsmen boutonnieres were HUGE, wilting roses and looked horrible on the men. The worst were the princess orchids on the flower girl basket, corsages, and boutonnieres! They were supposed to be white, but they SPRAY PAINTED them white instead (which we DID NOT agree to)! The paint was cracking and chipping off the flower, you could see the green underneath, and the paint ended up on the men’s tuxes. Needless to say, all of the boutonnieres and corsages were taken off as soon as the ceremony was over!

We got money off from a bridal show. Met with a very nice lady who set up our order. She ended up leaving the company. They told me they would remind me to place my choices of flowers but never did. Met with a lady who was rude and wrote what she wanted my flowers to look like, not what I asked for. My fiance called & complained to the owner. He said he would call me personally, met with us & redo our order. He never called. Ended up calling again & met with a different lady. She said he called another bride with my same first name. She had our appt, but got me confused with this other bride as well & canceled my appt. When we showed up she wasn't expecting us & didn't have our order to review. I got a call from Bonnie confirming my order. I question part of it & she told me what I told her is what they had. On my wedding day, my flowers came. My bridal bouquet was suppose to have normal sized orchids &calla lilies all in purple. My bouquet was just purple calla lilies. The flower girl petals were suppose to be purple, they were some flower I didn't know & was a little purple & mostly white. Bridesmaids bouquets so tiny, throw away maybe 6 flowers. Alter pieces suppose to be purple & white, had 4 purple flowers. Awful. I had to send delivery women back with my flowers after she was fighting with me that my bridal bouquet was wrong. She came back with princess orchids (which are small) that were white. She never got my flowers right. They had to spray paint them, which I said I didn't want, but they did anyway. She didn't have a phone & had to use my hotel phone 4 times to call, which I had to pay for. I was trying to get dressed & she asked a bridesmaid if she could come talk to me when I was in the bathroom, she told her if she wanted to get yelled at. She wouldn't leave me alone when I was trying to put my dress on. Dealing with flowers, made it so I didn't get any pictures before the ceremony. Bridal bouquet was the size of bridesmaid bouquets I had when I was BM
