Karen at Bloomingdale Florist was an absolute pleasure to deal with and the prices were really great, one of the best quotes I got when shopping for a florist. I was excited to have a local florist for my wedding, and I really thought that they understood my vision. I even provided pictures of exactly what I wanted. The arrangements were absolutely beautiful but the centerpieces were much smaller than I wanted and a little disappointing on tables that seated 10 guests. Further, I specifically requested no greenery be used at all and there were green vines in my pew flowers and green flowers I didn't want in my bridesmaid bouquets. Although the flowers were very pretty and worked out fine for our wedding, I was a bit disappointed and they were not what I had in mind.

My wedding was on 2/22/14 at The Florida Aquarium. Around November/December time of last year I was shopping for a florist. Our wedding was a little tough because we wanted a certain look with exotic flowers and particular colors. Not only were we up against our taste but also trying to find someone who was willing to take on the challenge with Valentine's Day so close to our wedding date. I met with Bloomingdale Florist at the beginning of January and was blown away by how creative and responsive the florist was. She went step by step with what I envisioned and she also made excellent suggestions. Her knowledge was very extensive with the pictures I brought in from pinterest. She identified each flower from the picture within seconds. She was so wonderful to work with and very easy going. The florist even made samples of each item I wanted so we were both on the same page. When it came to my wedding day, all I could look at were my arrangements and how beautiful they were. I had sooo many compliments on how gorgeous the flowers were and people saying that they had never seen arrangements made like that before. My parents even took them home to decorate their house after the event. I am amazed by how talented this florist was and would highly recommend them to anyone for any type of event.

HORRIBLE FLORIST!!!!! My fiance first ordered me Valentine day flowers from here the same day we did our wedding flower order. They showed up at my door with only half of the dozen roses it was supposed to be and the stargazer lilies were nothing but buds. I called in and the woman who answered the phone was extremely rude and said they will open sometime in the next few weeks. I dont know about you but I expect the flowers to be open and beautiful when they show up at my door not wait two weeks and by that time the roses were dead. We had also hired her to do our wedding flowers so I called in to talk to her about them. I e-mailed her pics of what I wanted my wedding bouquet to look like and had several talks with her about all the flowers. The day before my wedding my fiance picked up the flowers and brought them home. They were nothing like the picture and had tons of green leaf filler and buds in all of the bouquets after I told her I do not want that in my bouquet. The mens boutonnieres were supposed to be a huge starfish with a rose on it and instead I got a bud rose and a tiny spiral shell. All the shells were supposed to be white but instead I got brown, orange, purple, etc. She didnt care about anything I wanted or asked for. I called in upset the day before my wedding and no one answered so my fiance and I both left messages. I still didnt recieve a call back or anything. I had to go to another florist to have her fix all of the mistakes the best she could on such short notice. If you want what you ask for and someone professional go elsewhere. She is living in her own world and does whatever she can to steal money from you even if that means lying, cheating, and stealing.

We met with Karen a few weeks before our wedding to go over the flower arrangments for everything and everyone. Karen was very helpful, informative and friendly. She made you feel right at home in her own store. I wanted to incorporate my dad's sister's hankercheif with my bridal boquet and karen was able to accommidate my request. She went over and above and this really meant the world to me. Thank you so much for making our wedding day so special!

The day before the wedding they called to tell me my peonies came in the wrong color, but she would be more than happy to fix it. I get to the Florist and my Hot Pink (out of season ordered from Holland Peonies) are pale pink and looked hideous ( I had specifically asked them to order white to be safe if they though the pink peonies would come in the wrong shade of pink)! Karen tells my MIL that she will call her that same night in regard to how she will fix the problem, she called at 9 am the next morning (day of wedding). The only way they can fix the problem is by getting silks and spraying them hot pink... I was fuming I spent $700 on my flowers and went with this florist just for the peonies they promised they could get me in Hot Pink. I go to the florist to see the silks and I am bawling my eyes out at because what they had planned was nothing like I had imagined. Once I saw the end result I was still disappointed because it was not what I wanted... and to top it off the Grandmothers, Godmothers and Mothers corsages had the wrong color ribbon on them. (yes something little but I even took the time out of my planning to type up my order for them and Karen assured me if there were any discrepancies between what I typed up and what she wrote she would call me.... and never did)

In the end the bouquets were pretty and I received many compliments on the flowers. My MIL received money back on the order because of the fiasco we had to go through and Karen was sure to make the situation right although I am disappointed I ended up with silks instead of fresh flowers.

Bloomingdale Florist was the BEST!! Our flowers were amazing. The flowers were delivered to our hotel on time and the ceremony gazebo was beautiful. Everything that we talked about was done. It was just as I had imagined out. The flowers are still beautiful today, a week and a half later. I would highly recommend Bloomingdale Florist to anyone who is looking for beautiful flowers, professionalism, and within a budget :)

Great prices, could be difficult to get a hold of and kinda generic as far as the arrangements. Karen didn't arrage my centerpice as I had shown her and explained, and also got a few of the colors wrong. Althought the flowers were beautiful and she was able to get me flowers that were unavaliable at almost all other vendors for the season and they were excellent

I could not have been happier with this florist! Karen was amazing! My friend recommended Bloomingdale Florist to me (she had seen 11 other weddings this florist had done, including her own). I was ecstatic with the results. My mom and I met with Karen on a Saturday morning, told her the general look I wanted (I had lots of pictures :), the flowers I wanted to include, and the general price range I wanted to keep the cost to. Karen made excellent suggestions, and the end result was better than I had imagined! Karen also incorporated fabric from my dress, and ribbon that had our colors, she did a beautiful job with the pieces for the ceremony (that we also used at the reception), and provided vases for the bouquets to be displayed at the reception. Bloomingdale Florist allowed us to pick up the flowers rather than delivering (so we could avoid the delivery charge), and provided us with photos of mock ups so I could get an idea of what the arrangements might look like in advance. All of this and the price was just where we needed it to be! I would recommend this florist to anyone!!!

We were originally happy with the quote we got from Bloomingdale Florist, however we didn't get the flowers we ordered. They didn't follow our requests and designs. On the day of our wedding, the flowers were to arrive at 3:00pm and were not there by 4:45pm. We called and they had us down for delivery the following day!! (Even though we had confirmed with them.) When they finally did get the flowers there, they dropped them off and ran. They also did not bring the flowers for our cake. We had to get some extra flowers from the caterer. Luckily they had some. They ended up refunding us a portion of our contract, but they made the day quite stressful and in the end, our flowers were not right.
