I was provided Anderson's through my wedding venue, The Imperia. I received my centerpieces at a discounted cost. I had read the previous reviews but after meeting with Coleen I felt comfortable going with them for all my floral needs.

I had a unique request with my centerpieces and bouquets but she assured me it was no problem. (gerber daisies and pink lilies.) My final meeting with her and she informed she didn't charge for my maid of honor bouquet so she added it to the price. No problem. However, the day of my wedding, the delivery person showed up without my maid of honor bouquet. (the one she had just recharged me for) He called Howie who insisted I did not pay for another bouquet, let alone a maid of honor bouquet. Good thing I thought to bring my contract with me which clearly showed I was due another bouquet.

They assured me it would be there within a half hour and they were so sorry, etc., etc. A half hour went by, my bridesmaid called Coleen and she had no idea what was even going on. She wasn't involved with my wedding at all that day.The bouquet was delivered an hour later and it was clearly all thrown together and not what I had paid extra for, for my maid of honor bouquet.

On top of that, I was given bouquets with lilies that weren't even open. IN all my bouquets were flowers that were closed. Not what I was going for in my bouquet of pink gerber daises and pink lilies. I would suggest using them for your centerpieces but not anything else.

The flowers were absolutely stunning!! The bouquets and centerpieces were so beautiful! Above and beyond my expectations! I will forever remember my flowers being my favorite part of my wedding. When I walked into the room and saw what they did, I was in awe. When they delivered my bouquets to us girls at the hotel, I cried they were so beautiful! Flowers were the most important part of my wedding to me and I was floored at the colors and arrangements.

I was happy with them from the beginning and felt the prices were very reasonable. The day of the wedding was a little unhappy with my bouquet and centerpieces but I don't think they were to blame I just had a different picture in mind. They did throw in an archway and other floral arrangements for our head table which I didn't expect. All in all it went well.

The bouquets that Howie provided were beautifully put together. He was easy to work with and very accommodating. We were a little disappointed in the table centerpieces. We had to choose from pictures of centerpieces that we were shown, but on the day of our wedding, the centerpieces did not look like those in the picture. The picture showed a very full centerpiece that was bursting with flowers, and when we arrived in the hall, the centerpieces looked sparse and meager. It looked as if the florist ran out of flowers and tried to stretch them to cover our 12 tables. We also paid extra for flower petals to be spread on the tables, but there were so few petals on each table, that we didn't get the right effect.

Anderson Florist, Howard Kramer the owner has the worse manners on the entire planet, when we first booked with Howie we thought he was the best Florist bc he said he would through in free stuff. The Imperia in Somerset recoomended us to Anderson Florist and his attitude changed three days b4 my wedding....he told me he would through in free items like mints and flowers in the bathrooms we didn't have anything. Anderson Florist forgot one of my paid Bouquet, we called Howie the next morning and he told me he will give us store credit..instead our refund...but we shall see about that, Anyway, I asked Howie for Rose Petals for my Ceremony and he offered to pay for them for me for free....I would have paid....but Anderson said he would do it for free. And when I walked down the aisle I didn't have no 100 rose petals like the contract says. He also gave my flower girls fake flowers and I PAID for real Flowers....He was yelling at me on the phone...and the day of the wedding I didn't like the flowers on the main table and he told me if I don't pay him we will take away all the flowers .....

The florist was much more organized than what I expected from a vendor like this. The flowers and candles were exceptional at the reception. I would recommend this vendor to other couples.

Andersons Florist was the recommended florist by our reception venue. Basic centerpieces were included in the reception package, but of course, upgrades & personalization were feasible.

Howie was extremely personable & helpful in creating our floral concept. My fiance & I met with Howie fairly early in our planning. He was very patient with my fiance, as he explained & showed examples of different types of flowers and centerpieces. We could tell he was very experienced and he offered helpful suggestions/ options. I asked for sliced limes in the vases & to have the vases wrapped with strips of some specialty paper that had been used on the invites & escort cards; Howie was very open & flexible with these requests.

Overall, our initial experience with Howie was fantastic. And through the process, I communicated with Howie several times via email (having to send follow-ups only a few times) and felt confident in his capabilities & the flowers for our wedding day.

During the planning process, we decided to include a lasso (lazo) in our ceremony (part of my fiance's culture). A few months before the wedding, my mother-in-law bought a special lasso & contacted Howie to have fresh flowers interwoven in the lasso, to which he agreed (she thought he was extremely nice). So she sent the lasso & a check to Howie & checked in later to confirm that everything was set.

On the day of the wedding, the bouquets were beautiful. I loved my bouquet & and bridesmaids bouquets were lovely too (with nice rhinestone details on the wrapping, that I never thought to ask about). Unfortunately, before the ceremony was about to begin, we discovered that no one could find the lasso. Frantic calls to the flower delivery person & he didn't know anything about it either. The reception staff was fortunately able to find a nice wide, ivory ribbon that we used instead, but my mother-in-law (who is usually a very clam, warm, happy person) was very upset that the lasso she specially bought couldn't be found or used in the ceremony. Sometime during the ceremony, the lasso was delivered to the reception site. It didn't have any fresh flowers on it, and in fact was still in the original box that my mother-in-law sent it in. Needless to say, we were disappointed in the disorganization involved in this key aspect of our ceremony (which also delayed the start of our ceremony as we tried to find it & a ribbon). Neither my mother-in-law nor I ever got a call or note to explain or apologize for the situation (& I don't think she even got her money back).

Aside from this incident though, the centerpieces and flowers were beautiful. I was a little annoyed to see some Baby's breath in our centerpieces (I dislike Baby's Breath), but I never told Howie this, so I don't hold it against him. & we still rec'd several compliments on the centerpieces & floral decor.

Absolutely gorgeous flowers! Considering how little I know about specific flowers and just giving Howie my colors - he created the most vibrant and elegant flower arrangements. He is honest and knowledgeable and really works to give you something spectacular. We also had a flower and branch chuppah - all I can say is WOW! It was stunning. :)

Our flowers were beautiful. Our catering facility provided a budget for the center pieces which we were not thrilled with the selection, but Andersons (Howie) helped us to achieve the desired look within the provided budget and our centerpieces were exactly what I was looking for.

Howie at Anderson Florist was great and vewry fun to work with. He really worked with me to create centerpieces that were gorgeous. I did feel that the selection of flowers he works with is a bit limited so that could be an issue for some. Also we ended up going way out of our budget.. but got huge centerpieces. I did not comparison shop at all so I cant really tell you about pricing. He was really nice and offered to pick up our indian flowers from the other florist and drop them at our houses, which we thought was above and beyond. But then the day of he backed out of this which is why only gave him a 4 on resonsiveness and professionalism. All in all I was very happy with how the flowers turned out at would reccomend Anderson.

They were amazing. My centerpieces were more than I could have ever anticipated, they really helped bring the entire room together. My bouquet and the girls bouquest were beautiful. Llove my bouquet so much I wish I could carry it with me everyday. After a week and a half all our flowers are still alive and kicking. If you are looking for a florist, please check them out. Howie and Ada are really able to bring your vision to life (and not kill your wallet).

My husband and I are very disappointed with the services for our wedding day. What you pay for and what you receive are NOT equal to what you get or what was contracted. We were told we would get unlimited rose pedals for our place card table, 18 tables and our head table and it was very minimal; we were told that our centerpieces would be full with white hydrangea and I specifically said no greens and when we got to the reception and saw that there were few hydrangea, a very scarce arrangement, GREENS and fillers we were highly upset. They also forgot to fill our tall centerpieces with water and the white orchids we discussed!!! That was a part of the look we were going for and that was a huge element that was totally disregarded. And on top of that, my husband had roses sent to me the day of from them and not only were they late and not on the truck, but they were not even the right color! I was very disappointed that what we had spoke to him about and were so excited over did not happen for our big day. Great guy and good sales person, but did not deliver what he said he would and that is not the type of person you should let handle one of the biggest elements to any wedding.

Andersons Florist did an amazing job for my fall wedding.
For my bouquets I didn't have specific flowers in mind I just knew of a color scheme I wanted to achieve and Howie recommended the most beautiful arrangements. I received so many compliments on the bouquets and our centerpieces, which came out better than I imagined.

Also, I wanted to incorporate trees to get across the fall/Halloween feel and what Howie delivered was the most gorgeous thing I've ever seen. So many people at the reception were wowed by the trees.

I also ordered invitations through Andersons Florist. We hit a little bump in the road with these as they were weeks late and when they did arrive my name was spelled incorrectly (luckily I ordered them months before I needed them, so no harm was done). They were quick to make the needed fix and adjusted the price for the inconvenience. The invitations ended up coming out beautiful! It was worth the small hiccup.

All in all I would definitely recommend Andersons Florist to other brides. The price is very reasonable and the quality of what you receive is exceptional.
