My experience was nothing but amazing with Florissima. Aubert helped me attain my "perfect day". The staff was nothing but professional on the day of my event and the flowers were spectacular! Every time i think about the room i just smile and i will have the pictures to always remember them by. I highly recommend them to anyone! Bethanny K.

Aubert and Arlene did an absolutely gorgeous job for me and really exceeded my expectations. From the bouquets to the centerpieces they really couldn't have been better. Also, i really appreciated the calls they gave me the day of for piece of mind that everything was under control. thanks again for making my bid day look so good! Sara~

Florissima did a BEAUTIFUL job for us!!! The flowers were magnificent - I dont think the Boathouse could ever have looked more beautiful - the transformation they maneuvered was astonishing!! We had never been to an event there (other than lunch and dinners) and were not quite sure how different it could look for a wedding - boy were we overwhelmed!! Everyoune has called and asked who did the flowers. I have been giving their name out to everyone. It was everything we could have ever wanted for our daughters wedding!!! It was wonderful working with Arlene and Aubert (which of course helped to make it so special). All our best, Michele, Marshall, Stephanie and Scott

Florissima is one of the designated florist for The BoatHouse, and in my opinion, they only did a average job for the price they charged. Aubert was no where to be found on the day of the wedding, as he promised. All the bouquets & boutonnieres were left in the bridal room, and some of them with mis-labels. No one from Florissima were there to help... in short, it was chaotic. One note, read all the fine prints on the terms and conditions, which will be included in the contract package...some vases/stands were expected to be returned, and make sure your guests will not take them with the flower arrangements. after signing the entire package, and If there were any revision affecting the price, only the payment contract will be resent. (Who knows what had be signed months ago...)

Fleurs De Florissima was one of the vendors associated with the Central Park Boathouse! As far as demands go, I was a very easygoing bride. I sent pictures of what I wanted for the bouquets, and for the centerpieces, I chose a design they had already done at the Boathouse. When we discussed pricing with them, we were told that it didn't matter what type of flowers we used for the centerpieces, if it was a high centerpiece it was $250, if it was low it was $150. Well, it must've mattered because I requested a specific design from their website(picture number 2 off of the BoatHouse designs), and that's not even close to what was set up on our day. On top of that: The flowers were supposed to be delivered to our hotel (the Essex House) ONE HOUR prior to the Church Ceremony. They were 45 MINUTES LATE, which delayed our departure from the Hotel and our Ceremony started 25 Minutes after its scheduled time. The worst part, the bouquets and boutonnieres were dead, and looked nothing like what I had previously discussed with them, and sent them examples of! I had specifically said no Roses for the boutonnieres, and guess what, the boutonnieres for the guys were aweful pink roses??? In Short, for the price we paid, the service we received was lacking to say the least! I do see that some of the reviews they have are possitive, but I also see that there were tons of people who had the same issues that we did, and if you want to take a chance (especially after paying top dollar), well good luck!! Not a good way to do business on their part! If you want to see examples, send me a message and I'll be glad to show you all the pictures, and even messages going back and forth with them!

Throughout the planning process - they were terrible at getting back to me. I'd send email after email, leave repeated messages and not hear back from them. The day of my trial (a month before the wedding) I still had not received the revised contract (after numerous requests over 3 months!). I doubted them all the way through - and my instincts were right... On the morning of the Wedding, my first phone call of the day was from Aubert saying he didn't like the boutonnires I picked because they were too big. (A fiddlehead fern - with 3 or 4 hypericum berries at the base). I told him it was okay to just use a "few" berries wrapped, because the last thing I wanted was big boutonnires (we had talked about that several times). The only thing I specifically didn't want were roses (as we had discussed). When the bouts arrived they were giant roses with berries at the base. They were huge...and falling apart. My day of coordinators talked to them and they promised to send the correct ones later on (THEY NEVER DID). Next up - I'm on the rooftop taking pictures and I look over and see an arrangement sitting out (the centerpiece off of the base). Let's just say it was FILLED with bright green hydrangeas (not antique green with the rust tips), had MUMS?!?! (a cheap filler!) and not one single hypericum berry (my contract specified lots of them). My contract stated wine and gold orchids, dahlias, baccarat roses, antique green hydrangea (used sparingly) and green hanging amaranthus. It also stated that there was to be NO FILLER, and that the base of the arrangements were to have lush baccarat rose petals and flower heads (that didn't happen b/c they had to use the roses to replace the mums!). Thankfully, I had really great day of coordinators who had pictures from my trial and my contract and they got on the phone with them immediately. Without them, the flowers would not have looked 1/10th as good as they did in the end! Other little (or not so little) things that were wrong: - I specified in the contract that the girls' bouquets were to be wrapped in black grosgrain ribbon, they came in satin (I specifically asked for something NOT shiny). - The groom's boutonnire was a black calla to be wrapped in gold satin ribbon - and to be SMALL. The one that arrived was giant, wrapped in white tulle with metallic gold trim (my dress was a very dark ivory). - My mom's bouquet was wrong, and we had sent Aubert an exact picture of what she wanted. - The clear clarinet vases we rented from them were upside-down on the tables and had NO water in them. Just empty glass on the table. AND, the vases were not all the same - there were 6 tables in the back corner with diff. clear vases (straight-some plain, some with etchings?, and not clarinet) - also not filled with water (and dusty!). - There was both PINK and green hanging amaranthus (my contract stated green only). - My cake was supposed to have a few red roses on it and petals at the base. It had about 35 bright red spray roses randomly checkered throughout it. It was awful - it looked like mini-roses had vomited on the front of the cake. Even my husband commented on how awful it looked. There is so much more but I've gone on long enough! Thankfully, on the day of the wedding, I was able to let it go and really just enjoyed the day - but that doesn't make it okay or right. I hear so many stories of florists not following through and it's extremely frustrating b/c there's so little recourse you can take. My advice - thoroughly research your florist. Read reviews and talk to other brides who have used them (it's helpful to hear from people with similar budgets to you). Most importantly - go with your instincts...if you're worried about them, you're probably right!
