From all the reviews I've read, this place can be hit or miss. I thought they did a fabulous job. Exactly what I was looking for, set up and delivery included. They delivered the bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages to the right places at the right times. Price was worth not having to put together my own centerpieces. My only complaint was that our flower displays that were flanking the ceremony space looked a little bit like a funeral display, but honestly its so minor and I don't really know how they could arrange it so that it doesn't have that look. Very nice job!

Maureen was wonderful; she was one of my favorite vendors. She was easy to work with, made the decision stress-free and simple. She made insightful suggestions (such as how to re-use my pew bows at my reception) and the bouquet and arrangements she created were breathtaking. Absolutely gorgeous.

At our initial meeting, I shared pictures I had pull from pinterest of what I was interested in...she stepped away for less than 5 minutes and came back with a bouquet and asked me what I liked or what I would change. It was beautiful and I didn't want to change a thing. She knows flowers - just come with some ideas and then trust her, you won't be disappointed.

And the cost was very reasonable. Came in below what I had budgeted for.

And the flowers were so fresh and dewy - they lasted for over two weeks and my church had them on the altar the following week still. I can't imagine going to anyone else.

My flowers were GORGEOUS. Maureen was patient with me when picking out which flowers I wanted in my bouquet - I'm not good with flowers, so I didn't know a lot of the names - and she threw something together on the spot during my consultation to help me visualize what the bouquet would look like. The reason I gave marks off is the size of my bouquet. It was HUGE. And not in a good way...again, the flowers looked beautiful, but the bouquet covered the entire top of my dress. Looking at all my pictures, when you look at me coming down the aisle, all you see is flowers. I voiced this concern to Maureen when we were meeting (I asked if she'd be able to keep the bouquet to a reasonable size, considering the number of types of flowers I was having, and said we could cut something out if necessary), and she said this was a normal amount of flowers. I've never seen a bouquet this big. Again, gorgeous job, just make sure you clarify how big (or small) you want your flowers to be!!

After meeting with several florists, Maureen's was by far the most affordable (by about 30-40%). Meeting with her, she was able to suggest the flowers I was envisioning and provide additional suggestions I hadn't thought of. I showed her a few pictures, but she was able to get a handle on my vision better than I did. The day of the wedding, delivery and set up was prompt. The flowers were even more beautiful than I could have imagined. My only regret is that I didn't get more flowers! I highly recommend Maureen's!

Overall the flowers were beautiful and the price was very reasonable. Maureen made the whole process very easy. One hick-up with the delivery of the flowers being earlier than scheduled but overall great experience.

The flowers for our wedding were gorgeous and looked fresh the entire day! Maureen herself met with me once the first time and then a second time just a few weeks before our wedding day. She was able to give suggestions on how to stay within my budget and keep cost down and give advice on what looked best and we had many compliments on her work the day of! She came highly recommended from friends and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a florist for any event! Thank you Maureen!

Overall I would recommend Maureen’s-their prices are reasonable, they are flexible, and they do a nice job. I got all of my flowers from Maureen including the ceremony and reception flowers, all bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, and even florals for the cake; they were all fresh and colorful, and most lasted for over a week after the wedding! During my meeting with Maureen I provided a ton of photos and unfortunately when the bouquets arrived at my hotel they looked nothing like my photos. I happened to be at a hotel close to her shop on the morning of my wedding and I asked her to fix them; she was so flexible and prompt in sending someone over to do so that it wasn’t even stressful and it took 20min max. Afterward the bouquet was gorgeous and I loved it!

My only complaint is that I asked them not to include certain flowers for my centerpieces and they did end up including them; it wasn't a big deal because they were still nice, but I probably would have preferred something different.

My main suggestion is to have most of your details in place for your initial meeting since it's not really going to be a brainstorming session-bring photo examples of bouquets and so on, bring a swatch of your bridesmaids' dresses, and have a few specific flowers in mind when you have your meeting.

I thought Maureen's did a pretty good job. Highlights were that they were very well organized and brought everything we asked for on time and with no problems. They were also very good about making some last minute changes. The bouquets were really beautiful, smelled fantastic, and lasted two days without any problem (not that they needed to, they just stayed really fresh throughout the night).

The only things I wasn't quite as happy about was the greens for the tables were a little less lush than I was hoping for. Again, there really wasn't anything wrong about them, the just were not quite as fantastic as the other flowers. I also didn't price compare that much, but I thought it was a little on the expensive side. For example, for very small ferns, we were charged a dollar a fern and the ferns were only about 6 inches long.

Overall, though we were pretty happy with them and they definitely did a great job on the arranged bouquets. I think if you were just getting arrangements and not lose things for decorating like we got, you would be very happy with their work. They are a bit pricey (I thought), but flowers are pretty expensive and their responsiveness was great - there was nothing to worry about on the wedding day.
