I have nothing but excellent things to say about Julia and the Avant Gardens team. We had a tight flower budget, mostly because I don't much care for cut flowers, and they worked with me to create beautiful arrangements that were more in line with my preferences. They also helped with other decor and event rentals such as accent tables and linens. Their selection was excellent. Julia was a joy to work with - professional, prompt, and patient - you really can't ask for more from a wedding vendor. Highly recommend!

To be honest I wasn't super happy with my flowers- (the only part of the wedding that wasn't above and beyond amazing). Every time we met I felt great when I left, but when it came to execution on the day I was disappointed. They forgot ribbon and white ranunculus for my bouquet and didn't execute the vision as discussed. I had a chuppah constructed which was actually perfect, but I felt cheated on the aisle flowers (for what I paid). It's just that you pay so much money and labor over what it will all look like, go to the sample, feel excited, and then see that on the day of the wedding it looks like they forgot to look at the notes that they wrote down. Overall my wedding day was perfect, and I didn't let it bother me, I just wish I didn't spend so much money on flowers for what was delivered.

Avant Gardens sure did beautify our wedding! Immediately, we knew we were in good hands. During our planning meeting in January, they took the time to view what we wanted and found the right flowers for the time of season and price to recreate our desire. The options they have for glass and linens was great. They were able to deliver exactly what I had envisioned. I was not able to come to Florida to view a sample table but they were able to deliver with a photo. The flowers at the reception were exactly like promised...absolutely breathtaking. When walking into our reception I was in shock by the color and beauty. I would whole heartedly recommend Avant Gardens for your wedding florals!

Stunning work by Avant. I wanted a romantic wedding and I got nothing less than romantic. They provided all the florals and decor for my wedding. It was a one stop shop. Rick was beyond professional and gave amazing ideas for our decor. I walked into the reception and my mouth was on the floor and my heart was filled with love. I was so happy with how our ceremony turned out, our cocktail hour and our reception. I did not have to go to different vendors since they are full service. They provided our uplight, chairs, linens, charger plates, furniture and florals. I loved our flowers and I could not have asked for anything more beautiful. You get what you pay for with them. They are worth every penny. I do not regret this vendor at all. Loved them.

Avant Gardens created masterpieces (not just arrangements) for my wedding day. Jessica C. was an incredible facilitator who understood my vision and brought it to life. Their work is amazing and will work with you endlessly in making your dreams come true.

The only thing more despicable than the accosting demeanor of Rick Interian, the manager of this deplorable establishment, is the offhandish behavior of his staff. I had an appointment, which I called to confirm an hour in advance, and was greeted by absolutely no one while I waited for well over 15 minutes. I asked whether I should reschedule and, rather than being given a kind apology, I was rudely told by his receptionist to either wait "for three, four, maybe five" hours or come back another day. I was then denied a request to speak with Rick (who was standing 5 feet in front of me and in viewing distance).

When Rick did at last appear, he blatantly said "you are making a stink in my store, either wait or get out." He then KICKED ME OUT OF HIS STORE. Never, in all my experience, have I ever witnessed--let alone experienced--such abhorrent and despicable customer service.

If you are a bride or a wedding planner (or a human being who values being treated with some level of dignity) and you are looking for a respectful and considerate vendor, I would NOT recommend Rick or Avant Gardens.

No flowers or linens are worth that level of degradation.

You may not regret anything during your wedding planning process, but you will regret not having Avant Gardens as your florist.

ANYTHING you envision, they will make come true. They are extremely talented, professional, have the most breathtaking flowers you have ever seen, and will work hard to make your dream a reality. I was BLOWN AWAY (and so was EVERY guest) at the decor design and flowers for my wedding. It was truly jaw-dropping. The chuppah, the candelabras, the gorgeous white orchids, the beautiful centerpieces that people are still talking about, all the details that made for such a perfect wedding… THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!

XOXO, Grace & JT

The staff of Avant Gardens made the floral & decor happen for my daughter's dream wedding. The bride was very particular regarding the visual elements of her "big day"and Rick met her challenge and then some. The arrangements were BEAUTIFUL! The venue (Key West's Hemingway House) looked amazing! The ceremony area was arranged with big urns of flowers and rose petals everywhere, just fabulous! Avant Garden's staff is so talented with not only the flowers, but the table settings, linens, and lighting as well. They made the reception look magical. The photos that we've seen already are breathtaking, just gorgeous!!
