I went to Joan of Herbert E. Berg with an unusual request. My theme was chemistry and rustic, so we had chemistry glassware and bullet shells for the boutineers. She was very open to the idea as was the rest of the staff. The flowers came out beautiful. Sally was so helpful at putting all it all together out on the tables and delivering it very much on time. The church pieces were magnificent and perfect. Joan, Sally, and everyone else managed to create such beauty and making it look like it was picked from a garden beyond what I had envisioned. It was very easy to work with Joan and Sally. They also had great ideas that I wasn't even aware of like my mom's corsage being a shoulder one instead of wrist or lapel. I had never heard of that. Another idea was to use herbs in the bouquets since it helped keep the rustic feel. They are very good at their job and I was not stressed working with them. I would definitely recommend them to other brides to help make their day beautiful.

This place is as ghetto as it looks. They quoted me under $200 at the consultation and a week before my wedding when I went to confirm everything, they were going to charge me $1800! Get a signed quote from them! Please save yourself the headache. The flowers weren't what I was expecting.

Kelly,
In reading your review , I have to make note of a few things we are in disagreement with . Our wedding deposit is $200.00 and your original quote was $800.00. During your final review we had a discussion that 6 bouquets, 3 corsages and 14 centerpieces could not possibly be $200.00 but if you wanted to only spend 200.00 we would give you budvases and small bouquets for your wedding party. We gave you a considerable discount to give you your original idea for your flowers and with tax , delivery , setup and flowers your bill was $550.00. I personally delivered your flowers and thought they were beautiful . We gave you full bouquets and took a loss on our part so your wedding would be beautiful . I was sitting in on the consulation and at no time were you quoted $1800. We are approaching 80 years in business and at no time have we done anything to mislead you. I wish you well in your new
married life.
Sincerely,
Sally Jablonski ,President

Sally did such a lovely job on our wedding flowers for our outdoor garden wedding. Everything was delivered on time and in perfect condition. The bouquets came out like we had discussed and the centerpieces were beautiful. Many guests who took the centerpieces home commented on how long they lasted after the wedding - a good sign of quality. We were very pleased.

Having to plan a wedding is stressful...but with Herbert E. Berg, they made picking the flowers for my wedding a breeze! They were so helpful! It was everything I had envisioned I my head, they knew exactly what I wanted and how I wanted it! The flowers and bouquets were absolutely gorgeous and lasted for weeks! Not only do they use beautiful, fresh flowers, but they add stunning touches. I was unsure how to make my maid of honor stand out from my bridesmaids, and Herbert E. Berg solved that problem for me. They suggested not only having a slightly different bouquet than the bridesmaids, but also using a different color ribbon for the stems! It made my maid of honors bouquet gorgeous and just what I could have dreamed of! They definitely know what they are doing!! Highly recommend them!!

Joan was very helpful throughout the wedding planning process. She understood what we wanted right away and suggested some flowers that we hadn't thought of but ended up using. The flowers were beautiful and for the most part exactly what we wanted. There was one color in the bridesmaid bouquets that we had not talked about (or particularly wanted) to have there, but they still were beautiful. The only other issue we had was that when we went in for our final meeting, she had forgotten what I wanted my bouquet to look like and we had to go over the shape and arrangement again (and re-send her an inspiration picture). Otherwise, they did a fantastic job and the flowers did look beautiful on our wedding day!

We found Herbert Berg at a bridal expo and ever since them, we have used them for all flowers we have purchased. Everyone was wonderful! They are talented and so willing to work within a budget. I loved the look of peonies, but not the expense during a November wedding, so they found a beautiful alternative that I now love so much more than my beloved peonies. I cannot say enough good things about this florist!

We used Berg florist for our June wedding and we were very pleased with the results! About a year in advance, we met with Joan and gave her some general ideas about colors and style (we didn't have any specific arrangements in mind) and she suggested flowers and arrangements that perfectly matched what we hoped for! We picked up our own containers for centerpieces and other arrangements and Joan was extremely accommodating for doing this. We met with Joan several times and worked out all the details and she always had some new and wonderful suggestions. You can tell she has a real passion for what she does and cared a lot about what we wanted. Everything arrived at the designated locations and times and all the flowers looked perfect. The flowers all lasted well beyond the wedding. Highly recommend working with Berg Florist--particularly Joan! We had a great experience.

Joan was excellent. Of all the wedding expos I attended with all the florists, it was Joan's flowers that I was drawn to. Joan was highly experienced, helpful, warm and funny. She looks out for you, another set of eyes and hands. She understood what I envisioned for my wedding ceromony and reception. She guided me with what would work and how to tweak this or that to get the most out of every detail and make it seamless. The result was absolutely spectacular. My wedding flowers added that touch for the ceremony and reception that was both elegant and made it, per my mother, perfect. I highly, highly recommend Joan of Herbert Berg Florist.

Amazing! I got married in New Castle NH and the 2+ hour trip did not wilt my flowers at all. They were just amazing, vibrant, full. More than I ever expected. My guests ALL commented on how beautiful the flowers were. Thank you Sally and team for a great job. I went in with a very vague idea of what I wanted. I gave her a color and she went with it to amazing levels. I made little changes last minute and she pulled it off beautifully!
I just can't say enough on the wonderful job they did for me and our day. It DID make the difference to have beautiful flowers.

Do not recommend them. Wish we had went with another florist. They never showed up samples. The place was unorganized when we first went 18 months ago. Upon returning last month it looked like they "Cleaned up the room they bring you to meet them". The Bride's dream package for $999 is anything but a dream. They threw together my cascading bouquet which literally fell apart as I walked down the aisle. The wedding party was busy picking up all my flowers. They put only 4 roses and 4 Cala Lillies in my bouquet and filled it with carnations (which looked horrible how they were placed. My roses were red when they were supposed to be hot pink. The bridemaids' bouquets looked better than mine. The tossing bouquet was supposed to be a smaller replica of the bride's bouquet. Instead it was 2 carnations tied together with a ribbon. I couldn't fathom anyone nevermind a bride being happy with the work they do. They kept changing the prices of the flowers every time we'd go down and make a payment. I do not recommend working with Joan. She's particularly pushy. I will not be using this vendor again in the future.

We found Herbert Berg through our wedding planner. We worked with Sally, and she was wonderful. I'm a bride who knew NOTHING about flowers and found it very hard to say what i wanted, since i had no idea what i wanted!

Between Sally and my wedding planner we were able to come up with the most perfect centerpieces, and Sally was able to work with curve balls we threw her when we had trouble finding containers that fit our eco-friendly/ spring theme. But when I saw the final product on my wedding day I couldn't have been more happy! We received so many compliments!

I also had no idea what i wanted in a bouquet yet somehow Sally took my "I want green and white flowers that look modern and architectural and spring-y" (descriptive huh?) and gave me the most beautiful bouquet! I couldn't stop looking at it, it was absolutely perfect. She even through in a toss bouquet free of charge!

I only gave a 4.5 on value because i did go over my original budget on flowers, but that's the only reason. Overall, very pleased with Sally's work!

The forist did a good job but I expected bigger center pieces based on what we had discussed. I also had the wrong color ribbon on my bouquet, even after giving two color samples given to the florist. The ribbon also fell off my bouquet by the end of my pictures.

We found out about Herbert Berg at a Bridal Show in Worcester. We were impressed by the number of different kinds of bouquets on display. Overall, we were very happy with how out flowers came out, but we did not receive two floral arrangements.

My flowers were beuatiful and I had no issues with this vendor. The rose packages are a great value and they were very flexible with the chnages I needed to make. I did have to follow up with them as I hadn't heard from them 2 weeks before the wedding, but they had a system failure in January when we booked and we hadn't been put back in the system. They still had our info though and everything went as planned.

We first met Joan at a Bridal Show in Sturbridge - we had stopped at her booth because she had at least 30 different styles of bouquets. When we met her again at the shop, we were again amazed at estimate she gave us for all that we were ordering. I had brought a about a dozen pages from Bridal magazines to let her know what type of style/design/colors we wanted. The bouquets were beautiful and the centerpieces and ceremony arrangements were amazing. We now get all of our floral arrangements and gifts from Herbert Berg.

Like my flowers and the ideas that they had, however they showed up earlier than they were allowed on the date of the wedding despite the arrangements that had been made and would not wait to drop off flowers at the correct time. This caused unneeded stress as we had to rush to site to take responsibility for the flowers.

Everyone we dealt with at Herbert Berg was great, and they were very attentive to what we wanted and what our budget was. The centerpieces they did were beautiful, but the bouquets wilted quickly and were not exactly what I expected. They were still very nice, but the colors were less vivid then what I had hoped for. This may have been due to the season and availability though. I was disappointed with how fast everything wilted though, although that may be inevitable.
