We specialize in Weddings and Event Florals and have provided beautiful wedding flowers throughout Tampa Bay since 1994. We work from our home so our prices, while not the cheapest offer great value. Our web site has pricing details for 2013 which should help you set your budget for flowers.
We are a full time, full service wedding florist, we arrive early, pin on and stay through your ceremony to make sure eveything is great (our bride's reviews and vendor endorsements on the Wedding Wire echo this and our great prices). We can also help you with recommendations for other vendors you might need - we know the best and see them regularly as we work from the Don Cesar on St. Pete Beach all the way up the Coast to the Sand Pearl in Clearwater - then to the Westin Harbour Island in downtown Tampa and north to Lange Farm and Saddlebook and then to Innisbrook in the west.

Our deliveries are normally made by either my husband or I - so we can control the quality of service you receive on your special day.
Make sure you know who will deliver your flowers before you book with a Florist, equally important make sure your florist stays with you through to your ceremony and pins on all boutonnieres and corsages - many florists don't - they drop and run and then you are on your own. We often re- pin boutonnieres for others. When ever we go to a new venue - they are amazed we stay with our Brides - recently, we were at Tampa Palms, - the coordinators there couldn't believe our service.

Freshness is another of our strengths - we order flowers specifically for your wedding - thus, you are guaranteed your flowers are fresh. Generally they arrive from Miami on Tuesday for your weekends weddings. We deal with two of the areas largest flower wholesalers and have our company credit cards on file with them, paying our bills regularly - when needed we have daily deliveries.

We appreciate and thank all our Brides who have written reviews of their flowers and our service. Read less

Ms. Irene, is AMAZING!!! We planned our daughter's destination wedding at she was there for us every step of the way. Even the day of the wedding when I woke up at 3:00am and realized that I had not ordered enough centerpieces. I e-mailed Ms. Irene that morning and she totally took care of it, as if it was nothing! When the flowers arrived to the wedding - it was more than more daughter had dreamed of!!! Thank you.

Flowers were the one wedding decision that had the potential to stress me out the most. I had NO IDEA what I wanted, I could tell you what I didn't want (I hate orchids and Lillies) , but didn't have a particular "vision". We first met Irene at her beautiful home, she was very flexible as I was coming from out of town. I literally came to her with a picture of my dress, wedding colors, venue and a few pics from Pinterest...She took those things and created such a beautiful display of flowers. She suggested certain flowers that would hold up in the weather (outside in June) and would compliment my dress/venue the best. She was honest, very responsive, attentive, affordable and kind. I honestly could not have pictured any flowers more perfect for our wedding. Irene is awesome! Highly recommend!

Irene truly did a marvelous job with our wedding flowers. I have a friend who works in the wedding business and she recommended For Better For Less to me. We actually had our first meeting with Irene at her house, and I could tell by her beautiful landscaping that she has a real gift.

I wasn't really sure of what flowers and centerpieces would be nice for the season of my wedding, so I was very pleased that Irene was able to give me a lot of good ideas. All of the flowers turned out to be BEAUTIFUL. The centerpieces looked great and I loved that it was all taken care of for me. Irene was really easy to work with and was very receptive to all of the questions I had. GREAT, inexpensive florist in the Tampa Bay area!

The flowers were absolutely beautiful! However, the man never told anyone where the bouquets were and it was extremely stressful getting all the flower to the parents, etc. We had floating candles on our centerpieces and during the reception, we noticed that half of them were not lit anymore. Also, we has a beauty and the beast type of flower on our sweetheart table. The tape that they used to hang the rose from the top ending up falling after 1 hour. Thank god for my sister in law who ended up having nail glue so we could fix it. On a brighter note, Irene is amazing! She did an excellent job putting together my vision. She was always very responsive and got back very quickly if I had a question.

For Better For Less Wedding Flowers responded with the following comments:

Brianna is not correct in her statements regarding her bouquets and getting flowers to the parents. All the bouquets were in the Brides Room at the church and were there when she and her Bridesmaids arrived and went into the room. I was pinning on the Groom and Groomsmen when she arrived. I saw her mother prior to the Brides arrivall and all the corsages and boutonnieres were on the benches in the entrance to the church - her mother was aware of this. I pinned all male members of the wedding party and found all the of the ladies in the wedding party prior to the ceremony starting.
During this time the Brides mother told me her son was getting married soon and she would recommend us to him. There was no confusion and everyone was complimentary.
I handed bouquets to all the Bridesmaids and then stood with the Bride for about 10 miunutes while the wedding party was walking down the aisle and then handed her her bouquet. The Church's wedding coordinator congratulated me on doing such a good job - you can check with her at Espiritu Santo.
After the ceremony I arrranged with the maid of honor to put all the bouquets in the limo - when the limo arrived at the Reception site I took the bouquets from the limo and put the bouquets in vases around the cake table informing the Brides Mother and Maid of Honor where they were. I checked all the floating candles were lit and that the single rose in the glass cloche was "flloating" and then left the ceremony site. I apologise for the candles going out during the reception and for the rose falling down.

Irene is a true artist when it comes to wedding flowers! My arrangements over exceeded my high expectations. Every wish and dream of my English Garden vision was met! From dusty miller, peach roses, lambs ear, hydrangeas to garden roses and queen's anne lace, Better for Less had it covered. My bouquet was beautiful and my bridesmaids and flower girls' bouquets were breath taking! My reception arrangements...guests are still talking about them. Irene gives you the most for your money-I quoted several well-known florists and my vision was triple of what Irene quoted me. If you know your vision, she can create it and make it happen.

As a bride you worry that the vendors understand the feel of what you want for your wedding and will capture it that day. Irene you and your husband did an amazing job. From our bouquets, to the ceremony, into the reception, it was all so beautiful. I highly recommend For Better For Less. Irene was so responsive and executed exactly what we wanted.

everyone was constantly raving about our flowers!!!
They were gorgeous!!
I didn't realize the centerpieces would be so big, so that was my only complaint but I should have asked how big the cylinder vases for submerged roses were--- they were a little too tall for people to see each other across the tables.
i dried my bouquet but I am thinking about having a replica made in silks!
Irene is super nice as is her husband who did all the deliveries! they even stopped 3 places for the delivery-- 1 hotel for the guys, 1 for the ladies, and our reception site!
loved our flowers and glad we went with them, even though it was a bit pricey!

After initially meeting with Irene for a consultation, we immediately recognized how experienced and on top of things she would be for our wedding. She was exactly what we needed. She is also very prompt on answering emails. On our wedding day, a couple things did not go as planned with the venue, and she took the initiative to get our flower girl basket and table arrangements finished in time. She took care of all of the floral arrangements for the ceremony and reception, and we did not have to worry about any of it or designate another to do so. I would 100% recommend her for any wedding. The flowers turned out wonderful and were exactly what I wanted!

Irene and her husband Ian were absolutely WONDERFUL! They were VERY flexible with the plan and cost of my flowers. She was very helpful with the arrangements of my bouquet, centerpieces, and pieces for the gazebo. All of their flowers are real and BEAUTIFUL. Colors popped and were bloomed. I had a friend who got married and her flowers weren't open, these are perfect! They came to the hotel dropped the flowers off in water (so they would still be fresh) for pictures and the rest at the rusty pelican. They were great to work with. I would pick them again definitely!!

Irene and her team were the BEST vendor I had by far (and I had some great ones!) All of the flowers were gorgeous and reasonably priced. I took her my grandmother's wedding dress and she incorporated a peice of it into my bouquet beautifully. She was extremely helpful the day of the wedding and even went back to get the flowers when I had forgotten them in the dressing room without me even having to ask. I would definitely reccommend her if you're looking for a professional, personable florsit for your wedding!

They paid such attention to detail when setting up and were willing to stick around and move our ceremony flowers into our reception room. Everything was BEAUTIFUL! We had so many compliments, and they popped in pictures!

The flowers in the church looked amazing and they even moved them to our reception site after the ceremony. The bouquets, boutonnieres, and table centerpieces looked amazing and we received so many compliments! I highly recommended For Better For Less Flowers!

I would use them over and over again if I could afford a wedding every year. I also must have made at least 13 changes - adding a bridesmaid, taking one out, adding a table, etc. and she was totally and completely accommodating.

I was thrilled with everything about my flowers!

Irene Baxter and her team of professionals at "FOR BETTER, FOR LESS" provided the most amazing, gorgeous flowers for my daughter's wedding that anyone has every seen. They even exceeded my expectations and I am one tough cookie to impress. At least 50 people from our guest list of 103 came up to me and commented on the flowers. There were 2 event planners there as guests at the wedding and they thought the flowers were 300% more expensive than they really were. They will be using For Better, For Less for all of their events in the greater Tampa Bay area from now on. When the doors were opened to into the ballroom for our wedding dinner, people actually gasped. The flowers were magnificent, complimented by small votive candels for a truly romantic look. The flowers really MADE the room special and wonderful for my beautiful daughter and her new husband. Words simply cannot express how magnificent they were. I can't wait to see the photographs. Irene and Ian and their staff really did us proud. Wonderful vendor - perfect choice for any event that needs flowers.

In about an hour, she was able to design every aspect of flowers for me - showing me flowers I was unfamiliar with, giving great ideas, etc. Her prices were also wonderful! On the day of the wedding, the flowers arrived promptly, smelled and looked incredible, and were so fresh! We were taken care of by a representative all the way up to walking down the aisle. Walking into the reception space was breathtaking. The flowers placed so whimsically and prettily on the cake. The center pieces were stunning, the candles, the flowers, etc. combined with the lighting was so beautiful. I highly recommend Irene and her husband!

They got the color scheme perfectly, the centerpieces were stunning, the bouquets and personal flowers were perfect and the service was very personalized. This vendor really cares about their work...we didn't feel like we were "just another wedding." The pricing was very competitive to other florists, and we got more for our money vs. what other florists proposed. Definitely would recommend them!

Irene and her husband were more than wonderful! She contacted us weeks prior to the wedding to go over last minute details. On the day of the wedding her husband (forgive me, I do not remember his name) called and asked what time we needed the flowers for pictures so he could come up and personally cut the stems. While downstairs decorating our arch, Irene called me and said the arch looked a little bland and suggested she wrap some fabric to add to it. When I walked down the aisle I immediately noticed what she meant and was very grateful for this added touch. Her husband took some extra time to instruct the girls and I how to hold our bouquets (which were the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen - white and green orchids, hydrangeas, and calla lilies) so they would photograph best.

I was blown away when I entered our ballroom and saw what a beautiful job they did with the centerpieces. Our centerpieces were alternating 20" and 24" vases - one was filled with large calla lilies and the other had submerged orchids in the bottom and an arrangement of calla lilies, orchids, hydrangeas, and curly willow on top. They removed the side arrangements from the arch and placed them on our sweetheart table and put out vases on the gift table so the bridesmaids and myself could place our bouquets in them as an added decoration.

The day of the wedding, her husband delivered my bouquet to my hotel room, showed me how to hold it as well as showed the bridesmaids how to hold theirs. I was not expecting such wonderful customer service! The ceremony flowers, bouquets and centerpieces looked better than I could have imagined, and the staff set everything up perfectly. Thank you for helping to make my wedding so beautiful!

Irene did a great job with the flowers. All the bouquets were beautiful and fresh. The ceremony decor was amazing. I really wan't expecting it to look that great, and for a decent price too. My cake was trashed.A whole side crushed in and the flowers were messed up but Irene covered the mishaps with orchids and it was beautiful and a life-saver.

Irene and Ian created stunning arrangements for our wedding at the Rusty Pelican. The gazebo for the ceremony was adorned with brilliant arrangements. The bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres were exactly what I was hoping for. The centerpieces were stunningly simple and yet perfect for our beach-themed reception. Irene was able to listen to my ideas for the ceremony and reception and recommend a combination of flowers that blended so well together and fit into the overlook we wanting to achieve.

For Better For Less Wedding Flowers was a Preferred Vendor of the Hilton on Clearwater Beach. I had also seen her flowers at Bridal Shows held at the Rusty Pelican and her flowers are breathtaking! My wedding colors were different shades of blue and Irene recommended blue dendrobiym orchids for my flowers. I used them in my bridesmaids bouquets and my centerpieces. Everyone at my wedding thought I spent a fortune on my flowers but I didn't. If you are a bride on a budget, I highly recommend For Better For Less.

Ian delivered the flowers, he was prompt and professional. Ian also set up the decorations for our bamboo arch including the material, flowers, and starfish (Beach wedding) without direction and it looked amazing. Thank you Irene and Ian I would recommend you to anyone who needs flowers for any occasion.

For Better For Less was recommended to me by a friend. After my first meeting with Irene, I knew they were the florists for me and I never looked anywhere else. I came to the meeting with some ideas but Irene helped guide me in deciding the best flowers for my wedding. She was always really responsve and so flexible, particularly near my wedding date when our count dropped lower than expected and we had to make some last minute adjustments.
Irene and her husband were an absolute pleasure to work with. My wedding was on 10/23 and I still have a few flowers that are alive!!! They do great work and are very reasonable. I would highly recommend them!

Irene Baxter was on the Rusty Pelican's list of preferred vendors, and it is obvious why that is. She was so pleasant, patient, and knowledgeable during the consultation, which was great because I know next to nothing about flowers. She was able to read through my confusion, and create bouquets that were beyond my imagination. She and her husband were great on the wedding day, and even dropped off the bridal party bouquets at our hotel, since we were moving straight from the limo to the outside aisle at RP. Irene's work is stunning, and she is also prompt with all communication. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone who is getting married in the Tampa area!

our flowers were absolutely beautiful! Irene sat down with us at her house and went through photo albums along with pictures I brought to make the perfect arrangements. She let me know every detail of each arrangement and there were no surprises the day of the wedding. Flowers arrived on time, even more beautiful than I imagined they'd be. She contacted me several times before the wedding to work out details. We didn't know measurements to have palms along the aisle and she worked it out with the other vendor. Beautiful, fresh flowers at a reasonable price and a pleasure to work with.

For Better for Less Wedding Flowers provided gorgeous flowers, bouquets, center pieces, gazebo arrangements, boutonnieres, and corsages for our wedding. We had a number of positive comments about the arrangements and flower decorations.

Additionally, Ian and Irene were a pleasure to work with. Prior to the wedding, Irene was very patient and provided multiple price proposals and had excellent ideas for colors and types of flowers.

During the wedding day, Ian was very friendly, patient, and went above and beyond, helping out wherever he could lend a helping hand. Additionally, my husband forgot something at the house, and Ian offered to let my husband's friend use the car! The service and quality were superb! We highly recommend this florist. You can see our bouquets and gazebo arrangements here: http://12-1photography.smugmug.com/Wedding-Photography/davis-island-garden-club/13386435_CUdbH#974208558_7Wapj

We loved For Better For Less! They worked with us from the start to get the perfect assortment and type of flowers. They were patient when they had to redo our quote a couple of times... ok maybe at least 3 times. And with my desire to have a beachy/tropical type flower they suggested what would work best with the wedding colors. The thing that I appreciated the most was her honesty about how many flowers we needed. Since it was a destination wedding and most everyone departed the day after the wedding she suggested to rent palms and repurpose the bridesmaids' bouquets so we wouldn't waste too much. And I did feel bad leaving all of the pretty flowers in the suite when we left Monday. And I also want to thank Ian for doing a fabulous job the day of the wedding. He ran from the bride's suite down to the wedding, back up to the bride, and made sure everything was perfect. He even was raking the sand before some of the pictures Stephen Rudd was taking. The florist worked well with the Hilton, the photographer, and gave us everything that we had requested! Thank you very much for delivering the perfect service with such beautiful flowers!!

For Better For Less did my flowers for my wedding this past May. Irene and Ian Baxter did a great job. I dealt with Irene mostly pre wedding and wedding day was with Ian. I cant even tell you how great Ian was. He set up all my flowers for my ceremony. After the ceremony he help my shoes and my drink while we finished pictures. He was right there waiting on the ground to put my shoes back on! He then transferred the flowers from outside to the inside reception area and cake. He did such a great job- especially for a 90 degree Florida day! For better for less also did a fabulous job on my boquet and my bridesmaids boquets. They were absolutely beautiful. I also want to point out that i was a destination bride and they did a great job of planning with me through email and over the phone. I highly reccomend this vendor.

Irene and Ian were so wonderful to work with. When we first met them they asked what we were looking for and showed us many sample using the same types of flowers. They both were extremely helpful in guiding us toward what we had invisioned. Between booking them and the wedding we had a few changes in the amount of tables and wedding party members and they always had no problem adjusting the price and order. The day of the wedding they both showed up prior to the ceremony and created an absolutely gorgeous gazebo and reception in the grand ball room. She informed me later that the special order orchids that were dyed to match our wedding color (Watermelon) clashed with the ribbon on the chairs. The flowers were the right color, but the bow was not. Without hesitating she went out and bought all the stems in white to match the calla lillies and it looked amazing! I couldn't have pictured a better turn out on the flower design. That day they also showed all the girls how to hold the bouquets and put the boutinerres on the men. I had nothing I would have changed, they did a fantastic job and I would highly reccomend them to everyone!

Can not say enough good things about Irene and Ian! Irene is a true artist! My bridal bouquet was truly a beautiful work of art and EXACTLY what I dreamed of. The bridesmaids bouquets were also exactly what I wanted. The coursages for the family were amazing as were the buttonieres for the guys and the centerpieces on the tables. But, next to my bouquet, the most beautiful arrangements were the three she did for the gazebo...AMAZING!!! And Irene was so helpful before the wedding making last minute changes and during the wedding making sure everything for the ceremony and the reception were set up just perfect. HIGHLY recommend this vendor...they are worth the drive out to New Port Richey...trust me!!!

I cannot rate Irene & Ian at For Better for Less highly enough! Not only were they an absolute pleasure to work with, 100% accommodating, professional and friendly - but the flowers were absolutely amazing! My sister was actually crying because they looked so gorgeous - the centrepieces were seriously beyond what we could have imagined and the bouquet/corsages/bountonieres were all perfect as well. Irene was also wonderful at the ceremony, making sure that everyone received their flower. I can now understand the top reviews that I read about For Better For Less when we were first looking for a florist, and I can 100% recommend them to anyone - you will not be disappointed!

Irene and Ian are absolutely wonderful, from beginning to end. They meet with you to go over your plans and confirm everything once its closer to the wedding. They are very flexible with changes and are prompt in getting you new quotes that reflect your changes. They will even try and get flowers that they don't normally get shipments of! In my case it was ranunculus. Irene went out of her way, to all of her wholesalers to find ranunclus for my bouquet, and on the wedding day, there they were, center stage in my bouquet! They also work under the premise that all flowers from the ceremony can be used for the reception, something that is very uncommon for florists who are trying to get more business out of you. All bouquets and flower arrangements were reused as decorations which helped save a lot of money! I can't say enough about them, would recommend them to anyone, anyday!

Irene was a true pleasure to work with. Our wedding flowers were absolutely beautiful. She worked off of a small color swatch from my bridesmaid's dress to create a stunning end product. The flowers went beautifully with our dresses and she created that elegant, tropical feeling I desired for our beach wedding. She was the one to recommend simple orchid centerpieces with floating candles that looked so romantic and elegant in our reception venue. I received numerous praises from our guests on the flowers and they photographed beautifully. The day of the wedding she was on the ball! I had nothing to worry about on my wedding day. She tracked down everyone in the bridal party to give them their flowers and was on top of my reception venue staff to ensure the set up went smoothly. Thanks to Irene for making my wedding day beautiful.

Irene and her husband Ian were definately a blessing in disguise! Like many brides these days, I was on a budget. I am very picky about flowers and had chosen some beautiful silks to use on my big day, but did not want all silks. After seeing my silks and going over ideas, Irene was more than willing to work with me on incorporating both. She and her husband put a lot of time and personal interest into their brides to ensure that they get exactly what they want. Needless to say my wedding was gorgeous! I could not have asked for better people to be a part of my wedding, and for the price and quality you just can't beat it!

Her husband was really helpful when delivering the flowers...we needed to fasten family heirlooms to my bouquet and he just took them and made them fit just right. Everyone could not stop talking about our starfish in the bouquets and boutonnieres. She will work within your budget and give you amazing flowers. I would highly recommend her to any bride.

Irene was friendly and easy to talk to/work with. They have done this many times and can guide you when you give your colors and such to the flowers that will work with your budget and theme. I will say our flowers were a little less grand than what we were expecting, however, they did meet the specifications that were agreed upon. They were pretty and fresh. Irene's husband delivered the flowers to three locations, everything was where is should have been and all went well. The flowers are vastly less expensive than some of the big shops in the area, due to them working from home. We were also able to have her arrange centerpieces in vases that we purchased elsewhere so we didn't have to rent any. Overall, a very good experience.

She arranged our flowers exactly how we had wanted & made our special day absolutely gorgeous. We would recommend her to anyone & definitely use her again in the future for any special occasion that would require her services.

We love For Better For Less! The flower arrangements for our centerpieces were fantastic. The bridal bouquet, mothers' corsages, and the boutonnieres were spectacular. They even provided loose flowers for the bridal party to place in their hair and loose flowers for decorating the cake, all of which were gorgeous and just perfection. We loved the floral arrangement they did for our ceremonial bamboo arch at our beach wedding ceremony...we had a very specific vision of what we wanted, which involved having beargrass put into the sand to look like it was growing at the base of our bamboo arch. After doing some research, they informed me that tall live beargrass is not readily available, so they planted beargrass and grew it for 6 months just for our ceremony! They were so easy to work with and extremely professional. Ian was so attentive on the day of the wedding and even gave me a mini-lesson on how to hold my bouquet for the best look in pictures. If we had to do it all over again, we would definitely want to work with Irene and Ian!

Irene was an absolute pleasure to work with. Since we were planning from Atlanta, we were only able to have one meeting 5 months before the wedding. Her and her husband were great! They even let my dog play in their yard as we were meeting! She was able to tell me what color combination would look great with my bridesmaid's bright coral dresses. She was so professional and very confident. She knew exactly what would be the best and although I didn't have an image in my head, I knew I could trust her. I was right. The flowers were absolutely gorgeous! I'm still getting compliments on them. I had a couple last minute things that needed to be adjusted and she was very accomodating. She knew we were on a budget and worked with us. I'm so happy I found her on weddingwire. Everything was absolutely perfect. This is a couple that cares more than just about the money...they truely want you to be impressed on your special day and really care about the service they provide. Her husband delivered the flowers and made sure they were all perfect, pinned on right and that the girls knew how to hold them so they looked their best in the photos. He helped me pin on pictures of my deceased grandparents to my bouquet and even stayed to see some of the photos being shot. Irene and her husband definitely went over and beyond my expectations. I couldn't have asked for a better florist!

For Better For Less, Irene Baxter (and her husband) did a fabulous job with the flowers! She sat down and took the time to ask us what we wanted and suggested flowers and colors to complement our wedding colors. The flowers were spectacular and although I did not preserve them, they lasted well over a week! Her suggestions to use the flowers from the wedding for the reception also saved us money. They went well above and beyond not only with the flowers but also getting the arch on the beach hung with flowers and raking the aisle (something we didn't even think of). Everyone raved about how beautiful the flowers were.

This was my vendor for my wedding day. I was extremely disappointed in the fact we went over the bouquet arrangements several times, within 4-5 appts. I requested my bouquet be different than my bridesmaids, my bouquet was suppose to be all hot pink flowers with no greenery. The day of the wedding my bouquet was identical to the bridesmaid bouquets. That was disappointing to me. Though she was extremely nice, the rest floral arrangements were great. If you are going to go with this vendor I suggest you make sure you check on your floral bouquet.

For Better For Less Wedding Flowers responded with the following comments:

We have photographs of the Brides Bouquet and those of her Bridesmaids - the bouquets are significantly different. The Brides Bouquet is almost twice the size of her Bridemaids. The only greenery used was as a collar around the base to cover the bouquet holder. Most florists would not meet four or five times with a Bride without additional charge - we even went back and picked up our vases from the Rusty Pelican which they should have paid for but disputed. This Bride does not realize what good service she received.
