Loretta was great to work with! She created bouquets and centerpieces that were beyond my wildest dreams! The flowers were fresh and drop dead gorgeous. Loretta was patient and kind throughout the selection process and gave us several sample centerpieces at no charge until I was completely satisfied. If I we're to do it all again, I'd definitely go with Aramanth again!

There was really no question that I would use Amaranth for my wedding. They had provided flowers for a number of events that my family and I have attended over the years and they have a well-deserved excellent reputation. I met with Loretta during the planning process and showed her some photos I'd found online of things I liked. When she showed me a mock of the centerpiece she'd created based on those photos, I didn't want to change a thing- it was absolutely perfect. They also provided the beautiful bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids as well as ceremony decor, flowers for the cake, and flowers for the groom, groomsmen, parents, and grandparents. Loretta was wonderful to work with- flexible, responsive, reliable, and helpful. She is also very creative and skilled when it comes to creating the perfect look for your wedding. I would definitely recommend Amaranth to anyone planning a wedding or other big event.

Loretta Barnes and Amaranth Florist were absolutely fantastic to work with. My initial concern with finding a florist for our wedding was staying within my limited floral budget. Other florists told me they could work with me, then sent proposals well beyond what we had discussed. Loretta listened to my wish list and my budget and sent a proposal that was actually under budget. She was extremely responsive to any questions I had along the way and even met me at our reception venue to do a mock-up of the centerpiece so I could see what it would look like in the ballroom. She was also very flexible with a few late changes on my end. Most importantly - everything she did was beautiful - from the bouquets, to the hanging mason jars of flowers lining the aisle, to the centerpieces, and the spectacular arrangement on the escort card table! I was anxious about seeing everything on the wedding day because I had such a clear vision in my head for the way I wanted everything to look. When I got to the venue and saw what she did, I was instantly relieved and blown away. Everything I saw was even better than I had imagined. I would recommend Loretta at Amaranth Florist without any hesitation.

Loretta at Amaranth florist was amazing to work with. She was one of the only florists willing to work with my smaller budget and was enthusiastic about all of my "rustic chic" ideas. Her staff is very friendly and helpful. Guests are still raving about how beautiful my flowers were and I spent much less than anyone would have expected. If you are a thrifty, DIY bride who wants gorgeous flowers on her wedding day, I highly reccommend that you use Amaranth. Huge thank you to them for helping me create a beautiful wedding!

Loretta Barnes was a pleasure to work with throughout the planning of my daughter’s wedding. After meeting with several other florists we recognized that Loretta was the only one that understood that while flowers were important for the wedding party and the ceremony they would play only a minor role in the reception decorations for my daughter’s themed wedding. Loretta is very talented and the flowers were just beautiful. Due to a last minute issue with a particular flower’s unavailability we could have had a huge disappointment with the wedding party centerpieces but I was able to suggest a solution which Loretta executed perfectly. Her prices are so much more reasonable than others and she is so flexible in making changes that arranging for the flowers was effortless. We were very pleased with Amaranth’s services.

Loretta is an absolute pleasure to work with. She created bouquets and cenerpieces that exceeded my expectations based on what I described to her. The flowers were fresh, crisp, and beautiful. Loretta was patient and kind regarding my limited flower knowledge and developed several mock centerpieces at no additional cost until I was completely satisfied. Furthermore, I felt her prices were quite reasonable. If I we're to do it all again, I'd choose Amaranth with no hesitation. Thank you Loretta!

Excellent service, attention to detail and the most beautiful flowers!!! Even the other vendors (venue host), caterer, DJ, photographer as well as guests could not stop commenting on how amazing the floral arrangements were. There were numerous follow-up calls and prompt e-mails to check in and confirm all details as we planned up to our special day. We were impressed with the attention to detail and all of our requests were completely honored within budget. This florist is very personalble, flexible and willing to work with any budget. We will most certaily seek Amaranth for any of our future floral needs. We couldn't be more pleased!!!!

We loved working with Loretta and the rest of the staff to plan the floral arrangements for our wedding last fall. I had little experience with flowers and was overwhelmed with the variety of options, but Loretta patiently sat with my mom and me to help create centerpieces and bouquets that fit my vision (and my budget!). We fluctuated on several different designs for the chuppah, and I was nervous about how it would look, but I need not have worried because it turned out quite elegant and tasteful. Loretta did not blink an eye when I asked to include a blue lace handkerchief that belonged to my grandmother in the bouquet, and I appreciated her willingness to accommodate the sentiment. The flowers turned out beautifully and everyone raved about the bouquets! I was extremely pleased with the flowers and would highly recommend the Amaranth team for your next function.

Loretta and her team were amazing. I went in with pictures, photos and ideas for our big day and he surely delivered. We had a beautiful curly willow arch made with pink roses that was just beautiful. On the tables we had collected over 200 mason jars where we had roses, hydrangea, snap dragons, delphinium, sweet pea, freesia, and a number of other pale pink and white flowers placed in them....the result was classic and breathtaking. If you want to see please look at the Appleford website and click on Lynne and Rich May 5,2012.

We would absolutely use Loretta and her team again and have recommended her to three other brides. We found that her dollar for dollar value to be the best in the area, and was especially conscious of our budget without taking short cuts on the flowers.

Loretta at Amaranth is wonderful. She worked on our wedding on Nov. 12th at the Radnor Hunt. She is extremely good at her job and she does not overcharge. She put together amazing bouqets, centerpieces, and other venue floral arrangements. I had to change the number of tables we needed a few times and had some other last minute additions and it was never a problem. If you are looking for a high-quality, affordable florist, Amaranth is the way to go!

I used Amaranth for the flowers for my wedding. They did an excellent job. My bouquet was absolutely beautiful and was just how I imagined it. My bridesmaids wore chocolate truffle dresses so I had them carry orange flowers and I think it look amazing in pictures. Loretta was able to do anything I asked her, for example she made wrist corsages for our godmothers. Our centerpieces at our reception were so pretty. They really made the room look even more beautiful. They did all this and the cost was great too! I would highly recommend them for any occasion!

I met with other florists, but no one understood my vision like Loretta. I explained to her the over all theme and feel of my wedding and she was able to capture it in the flowers. I have to mention that she was significantly cheaper than other florists. I felt that she valued my business and she was excited to have me as a client. I wish I could upload my pictures so that you could see the quality of her work. My flowers were beautiful and exactly what I had envisioned. I would definitely recommend her work, it was simply amazing.

We have only great things to say about Loretta and Amaranth Florist. We did not want to spend tons of money on flowers but of course still wanted them to look nice. Loretta worked within our budget and created some really beautiful arrangements and bouquets for us! We received so many compliments on the flowers - the vibrant color and the elegant look. She was very flexible as there were additions I think up until the day before the wedding. Frankly we used Amaranth Florist prior to our wedding for flowers and were always so pleased so we knew she would do a great job. We were right! We highly recommend them!

It was easy to ask her any questions I had, and if there was anything I needed to change, she was willing to help me without any problems. Literally, when the limo pulled up the the ceremony site, my mouth dropped open and I couldn't stop saying "wow" because she made it look more beautiful than I ever could have imagined. She was easy to work with, friendly, reliable, flexible, straight forward, creative, and she made my life as a bride so much easier. I would definitely recommend the services of Amaranth Florist for brides, or any occasion, because you will have no headache and you will surely be pleased with the outcome.

The flowers were so incredibly beautiful. I don't think I even realized it at the time, but looking over my pictures, the flowers really stand out. I was also impressed because I was planning my Philadelphia wedding long distance, and know nothing about flowers so I just sent them pictures of bouquets I liked and gave them free reign to come up with something they thought I'd like. They did an amazing job.

Overall I was pleased with the flowers. I loved the centerpieces and the alter arrangements for the church. The only compliant I have is that the bouquets for my maids of honor were not the right color. I wanted yellow bouquets for the maids of honor and the bouquets they had were white. To me they did not really stand out when compared to the bridesmaid’s bouquets. But the price was great and Loretta was really sweet and easy to work with. I would definitely recommend Amaranth to another bride.

I received excellent service from Amaranth Florist and Loretta. I was planning my wedding from out of town and found her to be extremely responsive and helpful in the planning process. She listened well to what I wanted, and was priced very reasonably. I am not really into 'wedding flowers' so I just wanted something very simple without being over the top, and Loretta was able to achieve that for me. In addition, I added a few small items at the last minute for my flower girl and ring bearers, and she promptly emailed me back with a new quote and invoice- something I really appreciated when trying to tie everything together in the last few days before my wedding! Please note- Loretta only did my personal flowers, I ended up doing my own centerpieces- but I am sure that any centerpiece she created would be lovely as well! Very satisfied with my choice in Amaranth Florist.

I heard about Amaranth from a good friend who had worked with the shop at her wedding, and immediately scheduled a meeting when I began planning my own. Beyond a vague idea of floral colors, I admittedly had very little concept of what I was looking for to complement my day, decor, and dresses, and very little knowledge of flowers in general! Every interaction with Amaranth's owner, Loretta Barnes, was extremely pleasant. She is extremely patient and flexible, with a very comforting demeanor. She asked just the right questions to identify what I was looking for in bouquets, ceremony decor, and reception table arrangements. The process of selecting and securing Amaranth's services was one of the easiest I went through during the planning of my wedding, and the results were some of the most impeccable. I attribute this to Loretta's professionalism and skill, and can't imagine a time in the future I don't enjoy looking at pictures of her handiwork for my special day.

Going into my initial wedding consultation, I had an idea of what I wanted in my head, but only some pictures to show for it. Loretta was really able to take my colors and ideas and bring them to life. Everything about the flowers was fantastic-- the color, the varying textures (especially the protea!) etc. I still get comments from my family about them!

I was so happy with Amaranth, Loretta and her employees really do such a wonderful job!

Amaranth was highly recommended by several friends before choosing them to do the flowers for my July wedding, and I quickly saw why! Loretta did an amazing job with everything, and no detail was overlooked. She was extremely flexible and helped me realize my "vision," as I did not have one when I first met with her. We met several times, she answered all of my questions thoroughly and honestly, and she even did several "mock" centerpieces until we got it right. Better yet, she kept the cost below my budget while still exceeding my expectations. We had so many compliments on the various arrangements throughout the venue. If you are searching for a professional, unique, affordable, creative florist, Amaranth is the way to go. I will be using Amaranth for years to come.

Amaranth florist was the first we contacted, and the one we eventually went back to after meeting with several different florists. We were a bit concerned at first because Loretta took awhile to respond to some questions via email, but we decided in the end that value was more important to us. Loretta gave us about twice what other florists would for our money. She showed us mock-ups of our centerpieces for free, talked about them with us and changed a few things for no extra charge, and was very flexible with what we wanted. The day of the wedding, we were so impressed with the lovely bouquets but especially the centerpieces-- we didn't want floral centerpieces because it was a winter wedding, so we went with lots of candles and vases, and so many people said that they were the most beautiful ones they'd ever seen! It really looked lovely and we were so happy with how everything turned out. Loretta also gave us advice on where we could find inexpensive table linens and in general really worked with us to stay within our budget. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend Amaranth!

Loretta at Amaranth florist is so talented! She worked with me throughout the entire process to brainstorm and change our minds about the flower design many times without acting like it was a bother. She definitely will do whatever she can to make your vision come to life. By getting to know Loretta throughout the process, I was confident that whatever she made for me on the wedding day would be beautiful (and it was). Her prices were literally half of what I was getting quoted at other florists. She allowed me to have my "dream" flowers without breaking the bank. She was great at working within my budget and handling all the details regarding delivery, set up, etc. Out of my vendors I think that Loretta was my most valuable find, if you are marrying in the Philly area I recommend using Amaranth!

Let me start by saying - our reception looked beautiful, it came out wonderfully - but I was definitely concerned about it at times. Also let me say, I know I was a handful to deal with, very particular and annoying at times. I planned my wedding 900 miles away and I was a bit high strung. The team at Amaranth was good. I felt like it did take take some time for my contact to respond to me on certain occassions. I felt I was managing my expectations of her, more then her managing mine. However, she worked with me in my budget, helped me design the centerpieces, ceremony pieces and handled all the linens - which was tricky, and I know I was a handful and a half during that process. My contact went down to the venue and made sure the chair cover selected fit (they didnt' - so thank god she went and checked) Overall the results exceeded my wildest expectations. The flowers, the centerpieces, the linens, the ceremony designs... everything was gorgeous. We recieved compliment after compliment, saying it was one of the most beautiful and tasteful weddings they had ever attended.

Loretta was very easy to work with. I know nothing about flowers, and gave Loretta a very vague idea of what I wanted, and she showed me some beautiful arrangements. The flowers at the wedding were really stunning. The only issue I had with Amaranth was that they do not readily respond to emails, which made it difficult for me to be in contact with them. The finished product was great, and we were very happy with it.

We booked Amaranth Florist for our wedding as their prices were incredibly reasonable compared to other florists in the area. I met with Loretta on several occasions before my wedding to go over exactly what I wanted, but very little seemed to get accomplished at these meetings. I never got to see examples of flowers to be used, and this ended up being an issue in the end, as she never really understood what colors I was envisioning.

The bouquets I received were gorgeous, but the flowers were predominately pink in color while I had asked for more peach/orange shades. I also asked her on more than one occasion to include a specific type of rose in my bouquet, and in the end, these were not included. Our centerpieces were smaller than I had expected, and the colors of these were more what I had expected, but they didn't really match the bouquets which I thought was odd.

Overall, the value is good for the money, but I think it would be useful to go somewhere where they let you see an example centerpiece and flower options before the wedding, otherwise you never really know what you are going to get.

We used Loretta for our wedding over the summer - we chose her because of the low prices / value she offered versus other local florists and we had a limited amount we were willing to spend on flowers.
We were considering DIY flowers and I had set my budget at $1,500 for that. I went into my meetings with florists thinking, "If they can do it for under $1,500, I'll go professional." For my brides bouquets, 3 bridesmaid bouquets, 4 corsages, 5 bouts, 2 church arrangements, and 12 table centerpieces, Loretta meet my budget needs.
My bridal bouquet and bridesmaid bouquets were perfect and just as discussed. The corsages were also perfect. The groom's bout was not very good quality (floppy and fell apart) but the groomsmen were ok. The centerpiece flowers were not anything similar to what was shown to us in our demo (perhaps in color, but not in shape and style), but were pretty / worked well enough. Basically, it was hit or miss. And that was ok because of the price.
If flowers aren't your priority (and you're not going to feel overly picky and particular about the result) and you want a good, budget-friendly option, this is a great place for you.

Loretta at Amaranth is very sweet but I was disappointed with the way my wedding centerpieces turned out. Our centerpieces were not like the pictures I had shown Loretta. Also, the pin on corsages showed up as wrist corsages and both moms were not very happy about that as this was not what we ordered.
If I had to do it all over again I would have ordered the flowers online and had my DOC arrange the flowers as this would have saved a TON of money.
On a positive note our bouquets were just what I asked for although they started to fall apart towards the end of the night.

Jessica's wedding was a challenge for everyone at Amaranth Not only was it the Saturday before Mother' Day but Jessica was on a budget and only wanted ivory French tulips. Her centerpieces were a dozen of the tulips in a rectangular vase. We made them as similar to the picture as possible. She did get the value for her money especially considering the wedding date and
flower choices.

This vendor could have been better. I was recommended to this vendor by the Merion Tribute House, since she is on the preferred list. I was pretty excited about the flowers and knew she would do a good job. The first meeting went well. We had an idea of what we wanted and we were able to start working on the flowers. A few months later when we wanted the contract to try to budget for the flowers, she had misplaced the paper where she took her notes. We had to go back in to redo what we had already done. This event happened a few more times. I even got a call the day before the wedding about the flowers because she couldn't find the paper as to where to deliver some of the flowers. Of course the day of the wedding I was beyond nervous about the outcome of the flowers. Surprisingly my bouquet, the bridal party bouquets and my parents' flowers arrived early. Once I got to the church, the flowers were almost what I wanted. There was a flower that I didn't want, but I wasn't going to let that ruin my day. The flowers at the reception were exactly what I wanted. So everything in the end was almost perfect but the during process was a little nerve racking.

My daughter got married in May this year and I decided to go with Loretta from Amaranth flowers to do the table arrangements and bouquets. We met many many times and while she had very few ideas, we finally made a decision. I took photos of the mock arrangements and emailed them to her so there could be no misunderstandings. Imagine my shock, when the centre pieces had only a fraction of the flowers we had planned. It looked pathetic. They called for curly willow, and there was one solitary piece in it. My daughter specifically asked that no roses be put in all the bouquets and yes you guessed it, there were roses in ALL the bouquets . All the flowers wilted in the next 2 days. She did give me a small refund but I can never get that day back to rectify what is an important aspect of a wedding day.

Amaranth Florist responded with the following comments:

We were all truly sorry at Amaranth that you did not have a good experience. From the photos we took on the wedding day the flowers do not look pathetic. In a large room things tend to looks smaller. We use the most open flowers for events so they very well may wilt in a few days. The bouquets were designed to look just like the photo supplied and they did. Unfortunately the proposal did not specify NO roses and unless specifics are in writing they can be forgotton. Finally a refund was given that was MORE than you requested.
