Rating this vendor is tough because I initially wanted to give them 5 stars based on their really great price for beautiful flowers, but since they showed up AN HOUR LATE to my wedding I had to reconsider. Yes it was a NIGHTMARE to go to my ceremony and reception site to take pictures with NO DECORATIONS and flower props!

Should you choose to check out this vendor add a half-hour to the actual scheduled time and CONFIRM with them that they will ARRIVE at that time and for them to provide you with a phone number of whoever is delivering. Better safe than sorry right?

Okay, so I will allow the company to redeem itself by saying this. You can still have REAL ROSES and NOT spend a fortune. The wedding industry is making an EXTREMELY LOFTY profit off of you brides and grooms because they know that you have no background in product cost. Even after searching extensively on the Internet for total cost price ranges it was outrageous. I was not going to spend over $100 for my bouquet ALONE! Here's my evaluation of the flowers that were used at my wedding.

Bridal Party Flowers
*Bride Bouquet: Beautiful. Cascading White roses with an assortment of purple flowers and greens. The cost was outstanding (well below the average cost from most boutiques) and the arrangement was beautiful. Highly recommended.
*Bridesmaid Bouquet: Severely disappointing. But perhaps it was my fault for not requesting a picture of this. The manager told me that it was be a smaller version of my bouquet (which it was), but I didn't realize how much smaller. Incredibly dinky! Not a good buy.
*Men's Boutonnières: Green Leaf behind with a white rose and (+ small purple flowers to the side for the groom). Pretty classic, a decent buy.
*Women's Corsage: They used two white roses and small purple flowers. Seemed a bit odd to me. Not recommended

Decor
*Gazebo Flowers for Ceremony: One on top and two to the side. They did that exact combination in a previous wedding at the same location, so I knew it would be fine. And it turned out great!
*Centerpieces for Reception: I ordered 30 and spent less than $500. I was very impressed and in bulk they look beautiful.
*Head table/Registration flowers: Nice additions to our site. No complaints there.

Blooming flowers is a wholesale business so the larger quantities of items you buy the more willing they are to give you a better price. I spent less than a grand for a 300 person event (30 centerpieces, gazebo decor, bridal party flowers, and other table flowers), but I'm not sure if you can get this price for (let's say) a 50 person event. Overall, the prices they charge is very VERY reasonable compared to local florists and even Internet sellers. At one point I had considered harvesting my dad's rose's from his rose garden and making it myself, but that would be additional stress for an already inexperienced bride to attempt less than 24 hours before her big day.

This florist was the worst! there was lack ofcommunication. poor work and horrible service. The owner, Robinson Vasquez was such a con artist. He mad ethings sound like they would be great and they weren't. My flowers were suppoed to be delivered at noon and I did not recieve them until 2:00. That was the first shipment. They had to go back and get another shipment and supposedly got lost the second time back. Then they charged me for 3 boutiners that they said i didnt order but, i paid extra money for flowers for my cake that I did not use. The centerpieces were done incorrectly and crystals were not all used. Do not go with this place. They are unprofessional and horrible!!!
