Flowers By Emil and Phillis were amazing! If I had to pick one vendor that was the best value, they would be it. Their flowers are gorgeous andthe quality of their service is impeccable. I went to several florists for my wedding since I was a nervous bride. All I knew was that I did not want roses. Phyllis sat with me and my fiance several times and put together different arrangements of flowers to ensure that's what I really wanted. She was so patient with me since I had no clue what I wanted and couldn't make a decision. They always sent flowers home with me each time I went. At Flowers By Emil, they will make your centerpiece for you before your wedding and you will be able to make little tweaks based on what you see to ensure you are getting exactly what you want. All the other florists I went to, only showed me pictures and wanted to charge me double the price. If I wanted to see the centerpiece before the wedding at the other florists, I would have had to pay $100+. I got the most beautiful flowers with Flowers By Emil. My bridesmaid said that a stranger thought that her bridesmaid bouquet was for the bride because it was so beautiful. Phyllis was always very responsive and I didn't have to remind her to do anything the days leading up to the wedding. Everything was there on time and exactly how we discussed. I even asked her last minute to decorate my cake with some flowers and to get some flowers to put in my hair. They set up everything perfectly and even had a back up boutonniere for my fiance in case it wilted during picture taking. I can't say enough about Flowers By Emil. They are fantastic and I will always get my flowers from them!

The flowers at my wedding were beyond amazing. Our theme was cherry blossom a but I wanted the centerpieces to look like you were sitting under the tree at the table and that is exactly what they looked like. They were so big and beautiful . My groom and I were shocked when our guests started to take them home at the end of the night ( we didn't think people would want to being they were so big) . Our guest actually thought they were plants that they can plant at home so mission accomplished by my awesome florist. I couldn't have been happier.

Amazing! Phyllis was a pleasure to work with and she was so patient from the very beginning. I took my now husband and mom to choose our flowers and she gave us mini samples to take home. She took my vision and brought it to life. I had asked for royal blue orchids and white hydrangeas and roses. On the day of, the flowers arrived fresh and on time. I do not feel like I was jipped as was my fear. My bouquet was full and they were even nice enough to throw in a fresh throwaway bouquet. I had told them I would make one and I was so caught up the week leading to the wedding that I forgot about it. Not to worry, when I saw the throwaway I felt SAVED! Flowers by EMIL was hassle free and you can tell they truly enjoy doing what they do. Plus, their prices were phenomenal. About half of what other florists were charging.

We found Flowers by Emil through our wedding planner, Christine Viola, and we put our complete faith in them. We never met them nor saw any sample arrangements, so it was definitely a calculated risk on our part. The flowers blew us away on the day of our wedding. My bouquet was perfect, our table decor was more beautiful than I had imagined and they went above and beyond to match the greenery for our Chuppah to the exact leaves that were growing on the walls in our ceremony space.

Carmine and staff from Flowers by Emil are wonderful. My flowers for my wedding day were gorgeous! The arrangements looked more beautiful that day than they did when I picked them out. My bouquet as well as my bridesmaids' bouquets were breathtaking. Centerpieces were stunning as well. I've also used Emil after my wedding for other occasions such as Valentine's Day and will continue to use them. Their prices are very reasonable as well!

Flowers by Emil did a fabulous job with our arrangements. Our wedding planner, Christine Viola (amazing) has a really great relationship with them, so it made our working with them very easy and painless. They were totally willing to give some suggestions if we wanted them, or to completely stand back as we worked out our own arrangements. I had a last minute addition a day or two before the wedding and they easily accommodated me, no issue. Our wedding was also over 1.5 hours away from Brooklyn, and the delivery charge was so reasonable!

Highly recommend them!

I went to Flowers by Emil in Brooklyn for my wedding after a horrible experience with another florist I had booked. I left my original florist after hearing some horror stories & going to a wedding they did & seeing how horrible the flower arrangements were. At first I felt extremely happy with Flowers by Emil. They were accommodating & friendly & sympathetic to our situation. It was only a few months before our wedding & I was afraid I would not be able to find a new florist that had our date available. After meeting with them once & explaining what we wanted, my husband & I went back a few weeks later to see a sample of our centerpiece. It was a beautiful, tall, gold candelabra, with tea lights all around & the flower arrangement in the center. I asked for white spider flowers & roses - with some pink roses scattered throughout. I also requested that any greenage (leaves) be spray painted gold as I hate green & gold & brown were my wedding colors. There was also white branches, feathers & crystals out of the top of the flower arrangement. When we saw the sample, there were hardly any flowers & none of the leaves were painted green. I addressed this with the woman at the shop & she told me that it would be no problem to add more flowers & to completely cover the leaves in gold. She even wrote it down on the contract. The day of my wedding I was extremely disappointed to walk into the wedding reception & see that the leaves were still green & there were hardly any flowers compared to the amount of leaves. My bouquet was beautiful though. We did not spend an extravagant amount of money on our flowers, but when something is written down in the contract I would think the shop would honor that promise. I would not recommend this vendor for your wedding if you are looking for something more creative or specific. I know other people who have used them & for more simple arrangements they are fine.

Flower's by Emil did a wonderful job with everything for our wedding. They created centerpieces worthy of being on the cover of a magazine. Phyllis was super patient with us the entire time, even when we came in 3 times in one day. We can't say enough great things about how beautiful our centerpieces and bouquets looked. They did forget the centerpiece for our sweetheart table, but we just used the bridesmaids bouquets, so no biggie.

Their price is right though.

Flowers by Emil provided a beautiful chuppah and flowers for my wedding for a fantastic value! They were very easy to work with and didn't force their ideas on me during my initial consultation with them. I mainly worked with Phyllis, and I found her to be both responsive and flexible especially when I made a couple of last minute requests. Everything looked beautiful and we received so many compliments throughout the evening.

I absolutely loved this place. They took their time and reviewed with us every flower known to man to give us the look we were going for. They arrived at each location (ceremony/ reception) on time and never pressured us in needing to go over budget. We definitely got more than we ever planned. I highly recommend them for any event.

Flowers By Emil are a God-send. My mom & I worked with Phyllis who despite her broken foot (and possible discomfort) worked with us to figure out every flower detail. The closet it got to my wedding date and despite the numerous changes Phyllis remained calm and courteous. My centerpieces, bouquests, etc. were GORGEOUS! We went to several florists who charged 2x as much for the same thing with an even worse attitude. THANK YOU!!

Flowers by Emil was perfect! I worked with Carmine who is the owner. This place is a family owned business so you get the best of care and kindness all one in one. I have to say that the cost of the flowers was so below my budget that I had a little doubt how everything would turn out. Let me just say the flowers were the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen for any bouqet for bridesmaids and my bridal bouqet was perfect. Carmine even threw in free crousages for the mothers and free boutineers for the groomsmen. The ceremony flowers were beautiful and the centerpieces were a hit. Everyone kept talking about them and at the end of the night when the guest found out they can take them home everyone was almost fighting for them. Flowers by Emil did an amazing job and I highly recommend them!

We were so happy with our florist. We worked with Carmine, and he really was fanstastic. He literally went through flower by flower with us until we loved our arrangements. I'm very particular and he was even willing to do 2 samples for us. He is such a nice guy and a pleasure to work with. No other place we met with really spent as much time getting it right. He was really patient and made it about what we wanted. Day of everything went smoothly. Our wedding activities were in 4 different locations - I got ready in Washingtonville, NY - the groom in Astoria, NY - the church was in Brooklyn - and the hall was in NJ. It wasn't an issue for them. The bouquets were gorgeous and the church and hall looked beautiful when we arrive. It was exactly what we had discussed. He even surprised us and really did way more to our table. It was definitely a nice surprise even though i'm someone that usually does not like surprises (LOL). Our table was stunning! My sister is now using Carmine for her wedding in Oct 2011. I was reccommended from a friend who was also reccommended from a friend. His prices are also unbeatable. He was 1k less than the lowest estimate.

Carmine is wonderful to work with. From our first meeting, he listened and was incredibly accommodating to all my requests. He was willing to work with our budget which wasn’t very much! When we had our final meeting, I had made some additions which he was happy to take care free of charge. I loved how the centerpieces came out, as did all of my guests. My bouquet was not exactly how I pictured it, but it was beautiful regardless and looked great in our photos. My only complaint was the groomsmen boutonnieres. It was so humid out that the veronicas shriveled and wilted way before the ceremony even started. Now I know I picked out the florals but because I am not an expert on flowers, I wish they would have either advised us or made changes as necessary when they saw the flowers not look right when delivering them. Overall, I do recommend Flowers by Emil. They are a great value.

Flowers by Emil was one of our favorite vendors. I am so glad that my husband researched this vendor and recommended visiting him. When we first went in for a consultation, I didn't really know the costs of flowers and looked elsewhere. After going to many other florists, we went back to Carmine because he had the best prices and most creative ideas for our budget. Carmine is a pleasure to work with. My Mom loved him too. He gives samples of all the flowers that you have in mind and makes mini bouquets just so you have an idea of what works. When we went in for our mock centerpiece, our jaws dropped since it was so full and beautiful. He threw in a bunch of extras at our ceremony and reception in NJ, which made us happy. I loved my bouquet and our ceremony flowers which we used later at our sweetheart table. If you are contemplating a florist, go to Flowers by Emil. Carmine is an honest, down to earth, experienced and creative florist with high quality flowers. Don't get ripped off, go to one of Brooklyn's best.

Carmine is wonderful to work with. From our first meeting, I loved him. He listened and was super flexible. He was willing to work with my budget and never pressured me to pay more than I could. I really appreciated that. His prices were a real deal. I loved my bouquet and my centerpeices and Carmine was nice enough to provide a dozen balloons last minute for my photos. My only complaint was that I didn't love the bridesmaid's bouquets. They didn't look full enough to me and the construction was not what I had hoped for. There was alot of exposed florist tape around the outer flowers. That really bugged me, but I'm self-admitedly a bit neurotic.
I was reccomend Flowers by Emil. Great value and easy to work with.

Let me say that based on their Web site, I might have had some initial doubts. And let me follow that by saying they were all put to rest the moment I started discussing my flowers with Carmine. Carmine is quite the teddybear of a man -- friendly, and ever so nice. And he absolutely works with your budget. I got my orghic bouquet, 4 bridesmaids bouquets, boutonierres and a gorgeous chuppah for $650. In NYC, that's almost unheard of. And their work was GORGEOUS. Here's the real kicker though -- Carmine upgraded our chuppah to a bigger one, free of charge, when he saw the space and decided we needed more chuppah. Who does that? Only the best. Lesson learned: never judge a florist by their Web site.

Flowers By Emil is a local florist who has been around for quite some time. Although, I hadn't had any experience with them, my good friend used them and referred them to her friends. If you are looking for competitive prices, then this is the place to go for your flowers. No bargaining was needed. They give you reasonable prices and beautiful flowers. I worked with Phyllis and she understood my desire for a classic look and suggested a beautiful combination of colors and flowers to meet my vision of simplicity, elegance and timeless beauty. And the end result sure was that! They also worked with me to create a centerpiece that complimented my reception hall as well as the rest of the decor. They also helped to decorate my cake. I wanted to make my cake look special and they mastered the look that I requested without overdoing it and yet added some great touches. My boK was stunning, the church pew flowers were so unique and my centerpieces looked amazing. Again, they have the right price and will give you reliability and stunning flowers.

Carmine is very old school, so I was worried that he didn't understand the more modern, organic look that I was going for. But he was really flexible and listened to what I wanted. In the end, we came up with something I loved and I received so many compliments about my flowers.

Every bride who has ever worked with Carmine knows he would not disappoint and our wedding is no exception. His flowers were gorgeous and vibrant. He captured the clean, modern aesthetic that we were looking for and his prices are unbeatable. We even told Carmine when we saw the quote that we really do want to pay the fair market price to him. We had an initial meeting and then saw a mock-up, but 2 months before the wedding, I decided to have 3 smaller centerpieces at each table instead of one big one. Carmine took the change in stride and offered to create another mock-up. We told him that we trusted him and his work and we’re sure the flowers will look great. And of course, they did!

If you don't have a florist, call Carmine RIGHT NOW! Carmine had never done a wedding at my venue, The Unversity Club, so he took the time to come out there and meet the events director at the Club, me, my mom, my sister and Christine Viola to go over every inch of the 7th Floor--and drew up his own floorplan, completely with detailed notes and took his own pictures, to create the most elegant floral arrangements and decor we could have imagined. When we went for our flower trial, and my Mom changed her mind on the centerpieces (we wanted Calla Lilies, but didn't want any stems exposed), so Carmine worked with us and Christine to come up with a totally new design, a week before the wedding, that simply blew everyone away the day of. Carmine managed to not overdo a very elegant and rich decor that existed at the Club; he compliemented it with soft colors, and old New York style arrangements. It takes a real creative genius to achieve what he did. Even our personal flowers were equally as elegant and sophisticated looking. His prices were beyond reasonable, and without a doubt, he will be our florist for my sister's weddings, whenver they get married!

The people at Flowers by Emil were so nice & friendly. I wanted flowers in the purple family & they were very patient with me- looking at which flowers matched my swatches. They made a sample centerpiece, which I got to take home to enjoy. My guests were able to take home the centerpiece & kept the vase. The vase was definitely of good quality. I still get compliments to this day about the bouquets.

My only complaint is that a few of the flowers in the bouquets looked wilted on the edges.
