Hi, I'm Joan, The owner of Garden Parties Bridal Florist, and Dee is my sister in law, friend and partner. We started Garden Parties 23 years ago. We were originally both floral designers working at different shops and we knew that there was a better way to do weddings. Specializing in weddings became our only business.

We booked Garden Parties through a recommendation of a friend and boy am I glad we booked this vendor. In the beginning, we were hesitant because the florist seemed to be a little pushy with her ideas, but in the end all of the flowers and centerpieces and ceremony flowers were flawless! Garden Parties went above and beyond our expectations. They set up the ceremony site flawlessly. They even draped babysbredth from the chairs; a vision I only dreamed in my head and they made it a reality! They made our ceremony look like a picture out of pinterest, which these days is what Brides strive for. Only advice to Brides is stick to your guns if you are adiment about an idea and believe that they will make your dreams come true!

The flowers for my daughter's wedding were absolutely gorgeous. The red roses used for the bridal bouquet and the center pieces were full and gorgeous. The room where the reception was held was very ornate and the florists knew exactly how to decorate with center pieces. You can trust them, they know their venues. I was extremely pleased with them. They were very easy to work with and had excellent decorating ideas. I highly recommend then.

I Ordered My personal flowers through garden parties, the owner joan is professional and she came up with great ideas with colors and type of flowers. When I received my flowers on my wedding day they look pretty but some of them looked old and some was dried out. My guys Boutonniere look nice but as soon as we tried to pin them on 2 of them fel apart which was upsetting since it was to late to call since it was my wedding day and min before the ceremony was to start Its a good thing it was extra in the box and to top it off my toss away fell aprt before I could toss it away.

Joan has done two other weddings in my family and my own wedding. Joan did an incredible job. She has so many ideas. She is extremely knowledgeable and works great with her clients. For example, I wanted camouflage in my wedding, but I didn't know where to incorporate it. Joan ran with idea and gave me so many ideas on how I could do it. She had my theme in the centerpiece, on the cake, on the flowers, around the flower girl basket, and at the church. Every one of here ideas were awesome and it made my day even more special. I also had many compliments on how beautiful my flowers were throughout the night. Also, Joan made my day extremely easy. Everything went perfectly!!! I would recommend Garden Parties to anyone. Joan will help you with any idea and make your wedding very memorable!! She is the best.

This place is amazing in a lot of things. Their prices are great. I priced around at other florists and well I couldn't afford what I wanted exactly. I didn't want to settle for just anything only becuse I couldn't afford it. A friend of mine had reccomended this place to me. And let me tell you I was so glad she told me about this place. I had such beautiful flowers and the price was just right!! We had Orchids and Calla Lillies which I couldn't afford any where else. The ladies there are so kind and very helpful. They helped us out with making sure the flowers stood out but didn't take away from the dresses or make them look over board. I will use these ladies again

Joan and Dee were referred to me from a friend and as soon as I met with them I knew that I wasn't going to meet with any other florists. I loved the fact that they get their flowers directly from the growers so the flowers are beautiful and incredibly fresh! I got married in December and wanted peonies and Joan made sure I had them for my wedding! She got them from Venezuela for me and they looked amazing! My bridesmaid flowers also looked beautiful! Dee also made my ring bearers pillows and flower girl basket. These ladies are incredibly talented and I would highly recommend them to any future brides!

Our flowers were absolutely amazing. I mean, a-mazing. I went to four different florists and Garden parties was the cheapest by far. My bouquet was goregoeous and the centerpieces were the most beautiful ones I have ever seen. The only complaint I had is that the bridesmaids’ bouquets were a little small. Everything else was PERFECT. Just be warned, they love their roses. if you try to pick anotehr flower, they lead you right back to roses.

When I first decided that I wanted orchids as my wedding day flowers I thought that I would spend a fortune! After meeting the ladies at garden parties I realized I was wrong!!! I had 8 bridesmaids, 8 groomsmen, flower girl, ring bearer, parents & grandparents corsages, and my bouquet. ALL ORCHIDS and under $900! I was super excited! The day of the wedding they showed up on time and everything I orderd looked amazing! I was very happy with my choice in florist!

If I could give 6 stars, I would in a heartbeat! Joan and Dee are amazing! This was the first florist I visited, as Joan was a friend of a friend of my mother-in-law. They only do weddings, so visiting the shop is not like visiting a flower shop, and I was a little nervous at first. I went in with pictures of things I liked, but nothing exactly like I wanted. As soon as I started talking to Joan, she "got it", she just knew exactly what I wanted! She helped me pick the perfect flowers, details, and designed everything perfectly! Joan was even great when I went back a few days before the wedding with changes! On the morning of the wedding, Dee arrived (from Philadelphia to south Jersey) exactly on time! When I got the first glimpse of my bouquet, I started crying....it was perfect! There were so many perfect roses and it was just exactly what I wanted but wasn't able to describe! The bridesmaids bouquets were amazing too! All of the flowers were just stunning! I didn't get to see the centerpieces until I got to the reception, but again, I was floored! The centerpieces, just like the flowers, were better than I ever could have imagined! I got so many compliments on the flowers and still do! The guests all wanted to take a centerpiece home! I will definitely put up pictures if I can, but if not I will send a picture for Joan to show anyone who would like to see! Everything with this vendor was amazing - price was better than any I had looked into, quality was superior, and both Joan and Dee are so warm and welcoming (they make you feel like your wedding is the only one they are handling)! I recommend Garden Parties very highly, they are WONDERFUL!!
