Check the florist came as part of our package at Wannamoisett Country Club and we could not have been happier!! At our meeting to choose arrangements we met with the owner, Mitch. He was such a nice guy and had amazing ideas for our flowers. My husband and I had a color scheme but not much more than that for Mitch to go off of, and he ran away with that. Our flowers for the big day were absolutely gorgeous!! They could not have been more perfect!

We had our wedding at Wannamoisett Country Club and check the florist was apart of a wedding package they offered so we went with them to make it easier. We delt with Mitch the owner who was very friendly and knew what he was talking about. The building made me a little nervous because it was very rundown and needed a lot of work so I was worried about the quality of flowers we would get. We met with him to go over the details of our day and he promised to give us samples of our centerpiece and a BM bouquet for our dinner tasting at the venue. He did that for the centerpiece but not the bouquet. Also the centerpiece was the right concept but it was all colors that were not apart of our wedding. I called him to meet with him again and straighten things out as well as let wannamoisett country club know. He met with me, made some more notes,showed me a sample of the BM bouquet, and thru in an extra arrangement for the bar for our trouble. I met with him another time as well 2 weeks before the wedding because I was nervous about the colors being wrong from our original sample. He took more notes and again assured me it would be ok. Our colors were tiffany blue (we are aware flowers don't come in that color) and yellow with a butterfly theme.

For the wedding the flowers arrived as planned at our hotel and the colors were right. The cocktail hr centerpieces and the lining of the aisle and petals on the table for our cake were all perfect. But the centerpiece which was supposed to have white and yellow flowers with tiffany blue butterflies now had white, yellow and dark blue flowers with orange butterflies. Our guests didn't seem to know they were wrong and it didn't bother us that much but it was just the point that we met with him 3xs and the info was all written down and it was still wrong. All and all I would probably still have booked him again for connivence of the package but if you are a bride looking for your flowers to steal the show he might not be the 1

I had to meet with the florist twice since I totally changed my color scheme. The first time Mitchell- the owner- had a family issue and wasn't there. Instead of being called to reschedule, when I showed up the people there were surprised and had me meet with an assistant to make the arrangements. She was not very helpful and just kept referring me to their books wanting me to pick something out from there instead of creating something new. The second time I came Mitchel was late, so we had to come back a 1/2 hour later when he would be back. When we did come back he was WONDERFUL. He pulled out flowers and we made mock arrangements. He had tons of ideas and would modify them based on what I said I liked and didn't like. Plus, he gave me a very reasonable price for the very expensive centerpieces that I wanted. The day of the wedding the centerpieces and bouquets were beautiful. My only complaint would be that the ceremony piece was much smaller than we had talked about and looked kind of silly on the alter since it was so small, but since I had a rather small flower budget and the other flowers were so beautiful I can't really complain.

Check the Florist was fantastic! I contacted our venue, Roger Williams Park Casino and they recommended Check the Florist. Boy, am I glad they did. I was on an incredibly tight budget and for a time I thought I wouldn't even be able to have flowers at our wedding. Then when I talked to Check the Florist, they made it work! They nailed my wedding color (fuschia), always responded to my emails and calls, and made me feel wonderful despite my limited budget. Sheena (one of their florists) especially was warm, understanding and great to work with. The flowers at my wedding were spot on.

I thought I was being a pain calling the florist almost everyday to make sure they got everything right but they made me feel right at home. They even called me as they were putting together my bouquet and I was able to come by and see it which was great! They went beyond my expectations!

The flowers were absolutely beautiful! Karen created lush, ample centerpieces and bouquets at a reasonable price. She was very eager to please and knowledgeable. You can tell her exactly what you want, how much you want to spend and she is so creative that she will come up with something that is perfect. All night the guests were complimenting how beautiful the flowers were and the ones that took them home enjoyed them for over a week! I would highly recommend Check the Florist for any event!

This is probably the best hidden secret for flowers and lighting in Rhode Island. Mitch provided amazingly beautiful flowers for our wedding with the best value (we saved a lot compared to comparable vendors; we checked about 5 flower vendors). His arrangements were beautiful, including the tall collection of flowers, and he was very knowledgeable about flowers, and helped us choose the right ones for our vision of the centerpieces, altar, and bouquets. Everyone was impressed by our flower arrangements.

In addition, he lit up our reception room with a beautiful warm lighting that enhanced the room and evening. This was as good as photos we saw from Ormonde, which is known to be the best in Rhode Island. I don't think I would have known the difference.

All in all, outstanding service and product for great value. Thank you very much Mitch for making our day incredibly special.
