Flowers by Chris was recommended to me by a colleague who had used them for her daughter's Bat Mitzvah. She was very pleased with the service. I was a nervous wreck with getting married as are most brides to be! So I needed a florist that I could depend on handling everything with out problems because I was dealing with a lot of out of town issues for the wedding.
I couldn't have been more pleased. Chris, the owner couldn't have been nicer. She and her son Duke were helpful in finding arrangements that were in my budget. I explained to them that I had started back working after being out of work for a year. The flowers for my bouquet were simple but very elegant, the arrangements for the Church was stunning as well as the floral balls they created for the rehearsal dinner. I was really pleased with the service and flowers, Flowers by Chris provided. They really helped make my wedding day very special. I highly recommend Flowers by Chris!! Gayle Evans

This was by far the most rude service that I have received for a simple order of 3 red roses and 3 yellow roses...all individual. First I was quoted at $5 a piece. When I called back the next day to place my order I was told that they would call me back to confirm the price (via Kim) before placing the order. Well I called back 4 hrs later after waiting and asked what the deal was...total came out to be $60 something dollars. In short, each rose was $10 and they had charged my card prior to reviewing it with me. Talk about being unprofessional.

I then was put on the line with Chris, the owner, and she told me that she had no time to talk to me and abruptly hung up. THE OWNER DID THIS. please do not ever use this store for anything as it will just make you mad.
I do not like writing these reviews, but I am a new dentist in the Baltimore region, and will never ever recommend this place to anybody.

My relationship with this vendor started out pretty promising. As my wedding date approached and I was finalizing details, I found myself having to reiterate things that I had already documented in writing. I was even asked to follow up my emails with a phone to notify the business of the email! I found this request to be absurd, especially after sending the same information on multiple occasions and having multiple conversations about what I wanted for my wedding. The vendor claimed not to have received my emails, but somehow they were found after a little effort. To make matters worse, the incorrect bouquet color was delivered on the day of my wedding as well as my husband’s boutonnière. I submitted yet another email, that an employee confirmed was received, and two follow-up phone calls to address my extreme displeasure with my incorrect bouquet, and the owner/operator has yet to return my email or calls. I am beyond upset that I was robbed of photo opportunities with my bouquet because it did not match the color scheme that was based around it. My bridesmaids dresses were the color of my requested bouquet, and my shoes were custom dyed to match the color of my requested bouquet, and Flowers by Chris did not deliver what I ordered, nor have they attempted to make amends. Chris is completely unprofessional, and needs to revisit business school as well as take a course in how to speak to people. I found her to be extremely rude, a liar and very unpleasant to deal with. I am furious with this vendor, DO NOT DO BUSINESS WITH HER! All of the following reviews describe my experiece to a tee! Horrible experience with this company, spare yourself the headache and stay away from this senile, unprofessional woman!

Flowers by Chris is a rip off and provided less than quality products. The only reason I hired her was because of a Chuppah she said she did at the hotel I was getting married at. She said she could provide me with the same Chuppah. I emailed her the picture, showed it to her on her website and even brought the printed picture to her. Since the begining she had me worried, she forgot what we discussed, changed prices that she quoted and called me trying to set up things we already set up.

The Chuppah she provided is not what we asked for nor looked anything like the picture she advertised!! The Chuppah I paid $650 for looked like $25!!! It looked cheap and unstable! Most of all...it wasn't what we agreed upon! The flowers were overpriced, they were exteremely small and the guys were wrong.

She used the vases I told her I hated at the reception. We discussed she would use other vases and she still provided me with what I said I did not want!

She did not return my phone call or respond to my email! So I am warning all the future brides of this horrible expereince.

Also, she is NOT a preferred vendor of the Johns Hopkins! I work here and after the wedding I contacted some of my friends in high places and they told me she wasn't a preferred vendor, she constantly harasses the president's and VP's offices trying to gain business! I should have known she was lying because we have FLOWER CART right on our main campus, which would be a conflict of interest if we, as a hospital, used someone else. This makes me question the other well named companies she has on her list.

I wouldn't recommend this business to my worst enemy! I want to sue her but my husband says no, let it go. She messed up my day! Good thing I had good liquor!

Beware of FLOWERS BY CHRIS!

Flowers by Chris isnt exactly what i expected them to be. Fortunatly to be flowers were not a hug part of my wedding. The person i began working with ended up quitting out of nowhere and we started working with Chris. With her being the owner i thought that was going to be great. unfortunately it wasnt. We had been promised a few things such as orange orchids that were not provided. Chris said they didnt exist and i was ok that and just expected a quality replacement. I ended up getting pretty flowers that werent the right color. The bridal boquet was perfect, the bridemaids were ok, and the maid of honor bouquet was completley wrong.

In addditon to getting the wrong product we also got A LOT of attitude. Our floral budget wasnt huge and Chris made us feel second class becuase of this. If flowers and service arent important to you maybe you should work with this company, but otherwise i would suggest another company

I was referred to Flowers by Chris through a local hotel, The Baltimore Marriott Waterfront. I live out of state but stayed at the Marriott while in Balto. Flowers by Chris is the hotels preferred florist and does ALL the beautiful large flower arrangements in the lobby and throughout the property. After seeing their work it is understandable why they do the flowers at the Mattiott and left no doubt or question as to who we were going to use. Not only is their work THE BEST but Chris and her staff were exceedingly professional, courteous and just the right fit for my fiancee, our event planner and our event. We will not only recommend Flowers by Chris but also use them for any other needs. Any prospective clients simoly check out their work at the hotel and all your questiones will be answered. SC and LC

Please, please, take a min. and read this review. We used Flowers By Chris for our wedding and we made the biggest mistake ever trusting Chris. We went with her because she was referred by our venue, Pier 5 Hotel. Before our first meeting with Chris, we went online to read reviews. We couldn't find one positive review. This raised a huge red flag but figured our venue would not be recommending someone who wasn't a good vendor. Come to find out, the event manager at Pier 5, Lee and Chris are best friends which is why Flowers By Chris is recommended. After our wedding, we found out Pier 5 has been getting several complaints about Flowers By Chris about the lack of quality, what they received wasn't at all what they paid for and the really high prices. These are just some of the same issues we experienced. We can sympathize with the other brides on here and my heart hurts that we all had the same horrible experience. Chris turned out in our opinion to be a fraud! As soon as she received full payment for our flowers, (90 days before our wedding) she turned into a completely mean & different person. The way she spoke to us was astonishing. It took us a month to receive a transaction receipt for our credit card after paying the balance. In our contract it states that Flowers By Chris only does one wedding a day to ensure proper quality and service. Not true, we know for a fact she contracted two weddings on our same day. It was important for us to have tulips. I understand this is a "off season" flower for October but I was assured by Chris that it wasn't a problem. Then when we went through our trial 60 days before our wedding, Chris said no way can we get tulips! When we asked for money back because we were no longer getting tulips, (which was a major part of our contract) Chris said absolutely not, she will "fill in" with a different flower. When we continued to express concern, Chris told us we needed to stop abscessing over the flowers, yelling at us like we were kids getting in trouble. This is not how customers should be treated paying a lot of money for flowers for a very special day. Then we were told that it was a 50/50 chance that we could get tulips and we would have to wait 10 days before the wedding to find out. A week before our wedding, and still not knowing what flowers we were getting and many un-returned calls from Chris, she finally told us "good news" we can have tulips. She acted like she did us a favor for getting us tulips, never mind that’s what we paid for and was promised. We contacted another florist a week before the wedding just to see if we could get tulips and they were able to get them for us with no questions asked. That just confirmed our opinion as Chris being a fraud! The day of our wedding was the worst of all. We didn't receive sets flowers that we paid for. The set up was horrible. We didn't have pedals down the aisle. Our cake flowers were wrong. Our arch for our ceremony was not set up. The quality of flowers were terrible and wilted. The centerpieces were suppose to have water and pebbles on the bottom covering the LED light, luckily my groom caught Chris's helper on the way out the door and made him come back and complete the set up for the centerpieces. BTW… Chris just happened to be sick on our wedding day, funny because we just saw her 12hrs before when we dropped off the LED lights and she was just fine. My guess is she was at the other wedding. Her only sickness was her attitude! Our bridal flowers were delivered late so most of our "before" pictures have no flowers. We could keep going on and on about all our issues. Please do not use Flowers By Chris. We never write blogs but we feel obligated to share our horrible experience. Do not have your wedding or special event ruined by Flowers By Chris. We hope we can save one person from going through what we did.

I have been using Flowers by Chris for over 10 years. My company only uses FBC for all corporate events as they are on their preffered vendor list. I recently got married and was fortunate and wise enough to use FBC for our wedding. The flowers as well as Chris's staff were exceptional. No they are not the cheapest guys in town but they are unequivocally the best. For that special day why risk it? You get what you pay for thats why some people drive a Mercedes and others do not. I normally do not comment however after using FBC and reading the other negative comment on this site I had to. Its only common sence that shows the person who posted a negative comment is obviously a competitor or a disgruntled employee. Their ramblings show that they are either mentally slow or have no self respect as if what they say were true why would they have continued to return??? Flowers by Chris, Chris and her staff take away all the guess work by simply making several arrangements according to a price per piece that we determined and then took a photogtaph and made 3 copies. 1 for me and my fiancee, 1 for the file, and a final 1 for Chris I would assume. Again the flowers were perfect. Have them do a sample. You owe it to yourself on such a stressfull time to make it easy. Also look at their client list. That speaks for itself. Not only do they exclusively service our company but also the other top companies, hotels and restaurants in the region. Feel free to call me at my office. I would also be willing to forward some pix of our wedding.
