I wasn't picky about flowers, so I decided the best route to go would be to just make "messy" bouquets and centerpieces myself. The selection of flowers at this store is AMAZING--there was everything from a simple rose bouquet to tropical, spikey flowers I had never seen. So I used some of everything! I ran around like a crazy person grabbing some of everything and the nicest employee ever just followed behind me, keeping track of what I was picking so it could be rung up faster and putting everything in buckets of water for us to transport. I probably filled 5 buckets FULL of all different flowers and paid less than $280--I had expected it to be higher for sure by the way I was just grabbing without paying attention to price. They helped make suggestions for what went well with each other, color, heat tolerance, etc. I would highly recommend them for ANY type of event requiring floral needs.

I didn't want to spend a thousand dollars on something that would vanish by the end of the reception so we opted with Central Market. The cake tasted wonderful and with a few additions from our florist it looked pretty too. I chose red velvet cake with cream cheese frosting for the wedding cake and chocolate cake with cream cheese frosting for the grooms cake. My husband wanted a Texas Longhorn cake and while our budget didn't allow for an elaborate design, they were able to make us a sheet cake with a longhorn on it. We decorated around hiis cake table, so it looked great as a finished product. We were happy and I felt like we got exactly what we paid for.

Outstanding selection of flowers for our wedding. We choose flowers without any Central Market assistance being offered which is why responsiveness and professionalism aren't rate 5 of 5. However, this didn't slow us down as we knew which flowers would work best for us. We were pleased.

I made my own bouquets with flowers I simply purchased there. However, they do have a full service wedding florist in-house. The flowers were beautiful and affordable from my perspective since I didn't get a ton. Lovely if you want to DIY or just need to pick up a few last-minute flowers.

Please, please DO NOT HESITATE - call Central Market right now for your floral needs. I was nervous because of the great price and the fact that florals aren't their only business, but that fear was completely unfounded. I had the most amazing experience with Central Market, and specifically Donna Burkhalter. They responded to every one of my requests, tried so hard to give me the peonies that I wanted (even though I couldn't afford them), but then snuck a few into my bouquet as a lovely surprise. The delivery was early, the price was amazing, they through in so many extra little touches, and everything arrangement and bloom was GORGEOUS. I was so happy with this vendor. Please, don't spend more money when you don't have to.

We knew that we wanted plenty of fresh flowers throughout our ceremony and reception, but didn't want to spend an arm and a leg on something that would die/be thrown out within a day or two of the wedding. We decided to meet with Donna Foster at the 38th and Lamar Central Market. She has loads of experience and prices that cannot be beat! Her quote was less than half the cost of any other florists we considered. Because she was so much more affordable, we wondered if her quality or service would be compromised. We were pleasantly surprised by her ability to pull together lush, gorgeous bouquets, beautiful centerpieces, a fabulous head wreath for our flower girl, aisle arrangements, the list goes on and on...We were so pleased with Donna's talent and final products. She really cared about making sure that the flowers were just what we wanted, taking lots of notes on color palette, likes/dislikes, etc., and definitely came through. Now a few caveats: She does not use email so getting ahold of her or sharing inspiration pics can be a bit of a hassle. You have to leave her a voicemail and await a return call, or drop off samples. Kind of old school, but worth it. Also, make sure to have someone on your wedding day who is designated to sort through all of the flowers and get them to the right people. Central Market delivers the flowers, but doesn't do the set-up. It wasn't an issue for us in terms of ceremony/reception flowers because our coordinator and caterer took care of those. However, we had to ask a friend to put flowers on our cake and cupcake stand. And, we didn't identify one person to be responsible for distributing personal flowers. That meant that I realized two days later that my mother, mother-in-law, and sister-in-law never received their corsages. I'm pretty sure that they were in the delivery bags, but no one ever opened the last boxes or noticed that they were missing. Finally, a few of the greenery pieces were a teensy bit wilted in my bouquet. I'm not sure whether they were overwatered (the bouquet was drenched when we pulled it out of its delivery vase) or didn't stand up well. Fortunately, these were small hiccups in an otherwise wonderful day!

Donna Foster at Central Market is fabulous to work with!! Several other close friends recommended her to me, and I was not disappointed. I really don't know much about flowers, but I was able to explain to Donna the vision I had of the wedding, colors and a few favorite flowers, and she was able to help me pull together something really beautiful. I changed my mind several times, and she was so patient with me and flexible. She made it so easy. I even made a last-minute request for a bridal bouquet for my bridal portraits a couple of days before the shoot, and she was able to deliver beautifully. I highly recommend Donna to any bride looking for beautiful flowers at a reasonable price.

Donna Foster at Central Market North Lamar did my bouquet and it was so beautiful. I frantically called Donna 1 week before the wedding thinking I wanted to change my floral pics for the bouquet. Donna had already ordered all the flowers we had originally discussed but offered to change it. I stuck with the original design and I'm glad I did. It was so much more beautiful than I ever expected. It was so sad when the flowers died. Absolutely beautiful and Donna truly captured exactly what I wanted.

Although I never even laid eyes on the food at my wedding, I am told it was presented beautifully and was delicious. We had only finger foods for our afternoon wedding, and were on a tight budget. The coordinator at Central Market expressed concern that I hadn't ordered enough food for my number of guests, and she was right, I suppose, because it went fast. I added a few more items. However, we stayed within our budget and no one seemed unhappy (perhaps the open bar helped?) so I am pleased with my choice.

Donna at Central Market North Lamar was FANTASTIC! She had great ideas and really listened to all of mine. Our flowers were GORGEOUS and there is no way I could have gotten the value for cost anywhere else in the city. They even let me bring in my own vases for the centerpieces to help cut down cost. (Though the vases I did use of theirs only added a couple dollars per bouquet, nothing extreme). I would HIGHLY recommend using them if you're trying to go with quality on a budget.

Donna at Central Market North was awesome! I can't even begin to tell you how beautiful my flowers were, she gave me exactly what I wanted and more. I wanted some non-traditional flowers and she knew just how to bring that to life. I was so happy on my wedding day when the flowers came, I couldn't have imagined them any better. The big plus was the price. I got quotes from a few other flower places in Austin and she was over 50% less than them and I got a ton of flowers. Use Donna at Central Market and you will not be disappointed.

The fact that I wanted a nontraditional bouquet for my wedding did not phase Gerry at Central Market. He pulled together a truly lovely bouquet. When I told him that I wanted a center piece, but couldn't give him any more help than the general theme (southwestern) he produced a wonderful arrangement that we still have almost two weeks later. And the prices were very reasonable.

My bridesmaids and I decided to have a go at making our own bouquets, and Donna in the Central Market flower shop on 38th was so helpful in helping me figure out exactly which and how many flowers I needed to make exactly what I wanted. The order came in and I received a call from her letting me know of a small difference from what we ordered, and they were so helpful in finding me an alternative to make sure I was happy with what I got. Making your own bouquet is a fun way to put a more personal touch on your day, and the gals at Central Market were a huge help in making that possible. Besides their great customer service, the flowers there are very affordable and I would go back to them again and again.

You always see on the wedding shows that you shouldn't use a grocery store for your wedding flowers. I must say that this is definately a lie! Central Market not only provides a quality product, but because they are larger, they have the capacity to get you beautiful flowers at a fraction of the price of floral shops or boutiques. I met with Diana and gave her my vision and she was able to pull everything together just as I imagined it and she was so attentive to what it was that I wanted. When I forgot a corsage, all I had to do was call and there was no problem adding it to my order. All I did was take her everything and they delivered! When I got to the reception hall, my centerpieces were all there and tiered nicely, they delivered all of my flowers to the church and they were all so fresh and beautiful. The lilies that I had were blooming for weeks after the wedding! I am really satisfied with the results and for someone who didn't think I could afford real flowers at my wedding, Central Market pleasantly surprised me!

I ordered the bulk of my flowers (all gerbera daisies) from another vendor, but when I got them, the one color I needed for my bouquet was missing. I tried a couple different places around Austin but no one seemed to have many, if any, gerberas. Luckily, I called Central Market (Lamar & 38th) and they had a whole bucket full of the burgundy color I needed (not to mention every other color imaginable). They were cheap, too, and in fantastic condition. A couple family friends actually made my bouquet for me, and it was one of my favourite details from the wedding. If you are doing your own flowers, or at least bouquets/boutonnieres, I'd definitely recommend getting your flowers from Central Market. Great selection, great condition, and friendly staff.

Donna and Central Market offered beautiful flowers for a reasonable price, especially considering how experienced and popular she is. We got two large flower arrangements in iron scroll stands, bridal bouquets for portraits and the ceremony, a toss bouquet, 3 BM bouquets, 3 corsages, 8 boutonniers, 20 gerbera daisies for floating centerpieces, and some hydrangea for the cake for about $1000, and delivery was very reasonable. The two large arrangements of hydrangea, roses and gladiolus sat on the sides of the aisle for the ceremony and then moved indoors to decorate the buffet line and cake table. I am a big e-mail person, so it was a little weird to me that Donna doesn't do e-mail at all, but it was still remarkably easy to work with her anyway. We met once and corresponded by phone messages and quotes-by-mail after that, and it all worked out perfectly. We loved our flowers!

I had heard nothing but good things about the floral department in Central Market, so I was disappointed when things didn't work out very well with them. First, I tried calling the floral director, Diana, who is apparently the only one in the store who does wedding flowers. However, she is also the one who does all of the deliveries, etc., plus her schedule is different every day. I tried getting in touch with her for 2 weeks before I finally was able to talk to her. She was horrible about calling me back, every time I called, I had to go over the order with her again, she never got it right. Amazingly, the flowers were right on the day of the wedding, although I have no idea how. I thought they were way overpriced for what I was getting. The flowers did end up looking beautiful though.

I had no idea what I wanted in my flowers. I walked in with my mother so unsure of everything, and walked out with a complete vision of what I was going to get. The florist at Central Market South knew what she was doing and made everything perfect. The day of the wedding, when she delivered the flowers, my wedding day finally started to seem real. The flowers were the first thing to bring tears to my eyes, they were beautiful. Not only was it more beautiful than I pictured, but she went above and beyond by bringing extra flowers in the event stems broke. She was more prepared than I was, and everything was gorgeous!

We decided to save money by ordering 9" round cakes. I was able to pick out 2 different flavors and had Central Market make them with plain white frosting. We then decorated the cakes ourselves due to our taste and had them displayed on staggered marble slabs. The cake was awesome (they're known for good cake) and you can't beat the price!
