Absolutely loved working with Pedestals. I had a very small budget for flowers and I can't tell you have amazing my reception looked. Pedestals did such an amazing job, the flowers were gorgeous and you would never think I did it on a small budget. My bouquet was stunning, I'm still in awe of how beautiful it was, it lasted all weekend and I'm kicking myself that I didn't try to get it perserved. Nadia was absolutely amazing to work with and her team is extremely talented. Trust me you will not be disappointed with them.

Phil and his team are amazing. I was so happy with everything - my bouquet, bridesmaids' bouquets, church decor, and especially my centerpieces. They made my ballroom look amazing, romantic and soft. Phil deemed my style "a vintage, romantic feel" and that was exactly what I got! Beautiful work & a pleasure to work with.

We went to Pedestals, when we had a fall out with our prior florist, ONE month before our wedding! Our vendor referred us to Pedestals, and I am so happy that they did. We worked with Robert, who bent over backwards to help us. He understood we were in a panic, and assured us that we were in the right hands. He was so helpful and he just understood my vision! Everything was more than I ever imagined. The bouquets were absolutely stunning! My bouquet was a mix of soft pink peonies, ivory roses, ivory calla lilies and he added in rhinestones for that special touch! My sister, the Maid of Honor had all hot pink peonies, and the rest of the bridesmaids had hot pink peonies, pink peonies and ivory roses. The girls all wore black dresses so these bouquets looked amazing against their dresses. Our centerpieces were all high and they all had soft flowers with hot pink roses for that special pop! The tables were decorated with rose petals and tea light candles! everything was stunning! I can not thank Robert, and the entire Pedestals staff enough for working with us and making my vision come true!

Pedestals Florist did the most amazing job on my daughters bat mitzvah. It was a huge event and they captured the theme to a tee. The room sparkled, the flowers were spectacular and attention was paid to every detail. Nicole Versaggi is the absolute best, going the extra mile at every turn. Thanks so much. The guests were blown away!!

Robert from Pedestals was amazing. From the moment I met and told him about my lack of love for flowers he was eager to execute something simple and elegant for me. Funny thing is I showed him a picture of what I wanted, and it was a piece HE had designed- at my venue. From that moment we clicked. He gave me my simple center piece, and my bouquet was BEAUTIFUL as were my bridesmaids. He gave me all things pink, as I had requested, and was a pleasure to work with.
No complaints here.

They flowers came out beautiful on my wedding day! I showed them photos of what I wanted and without hesitation they said they were able to recreate the bouquets perfectly. They delivered the flowers on time (even a little early) and set up everything beautifully at Jericho Terrace and at the church.

LOVE LOVE LOVE Pedestals! I met with Rob multiple times leading up to our June 21, 2014 wedding. He was so accommodating and it was like he could read my mind and see my vision.

People may say that the flowers are not very important but they honestly made our wedding. The romance and timeless design of our centerpieces, bouquets, and tree over our sweetheart table were AMAZING.

My husband and I walked into the ballroom on our wedding day and were blown away. Everyone commented on how gorgeous the flowers were.

Yes, we spent a lot on our flowers but it was worth every penny!! Highly recommend.

I absolutely LOVE the flower arrangements prepared by Pedestals for my wedding. Everything was exactly as we had discussed. I had beautiful tall arrangements that fanned out like a burst. The ceiling treatment was more than I had expected. Between the church and the hall, I was in awe. It was completely spectacular.!

Virgil is the best! He knows what he is doing and if you aren't sure what you want he takes the time to help and make everything thing perfect. Our flowers from Pedestals were absolutely gorgeous from the brides bouquet which was outrageously beautiful but not in anyway ordinary to the simple but elegant table pieces. Go see him and them and you wont have to worry about a thing!

When I first booked my wedding at Westbury Manor, I ran into a bride who had just ordered her flowers at Pedestals. She told me that she had been all over and that Pedestals prices were comparable even lower than local competitors but that the level of professionalism and service could not be beat. Since I did not know this woman, I did my own research and traveled all over Long Island and Queens looking for a florist. Pedestals was my last stop and I discovered that the bride I had met was right. While not the cheapest, they were certainly not the most expensive and the higher price is easily justified by their service and professionalism. I met with Nadia and could not have been happier. She worked with me to define my vision and what I wanted the flowers to look like. I was able to see fully made samples in their showroom before the wedding, so there were no surprises. Nadia was excellent; the flowers were not just dropped off at the venue, she made sure everything was set up appropriately, decorated the cake with fresh flowers, lit votive candles everywhere, and just made everything look amazing. To boot, Nadia's vendor recommendations were instrumental in helping me plan the rest of my wedding. Ultimately, I took her suggestions for DJ, Photographer, and Hair/Make-up and I am happy with all my choices. I very strongly recommend Nadia at Pedestals Floral Decorators to anyone who needs floral arrangements.

My fiance and I decided to host an intimate wedding in a three week time frame. As you can imagine I was scrambling around trying to make the event special and needed some centerpieces for the dinner tables. I contacted Pedestals to see if they'd be able to assist me with my last minute soiree and surely enough, Nadia came to my rescue. After answering a few basic questions, Nadia gave me the confidence that we were on the same page design wise and the team at Pedestals definitely delivered. I was more than pleased with the results and would definitely refer them to anyone looking for top notch customer service and beautiful arrangements.

My Wife and I's wedding this past weekend was amazing. It was literally a picture perfect day and the custom centerpieces, card table and floral arrangements for the bridal party were absolutely gorgeous. Robert (our florist) made the entire process really easy and knew exactly what we wanted. His creative input was amazing and the price was unbeatable for what we got. We had originally gone to another florist for a price and it was almost double what they charged for a lesser quality flower. I mean, they wanted to use carnations for our centerpieces at this other florist. CARNATIONS!! We got absolutely gorgeous BLUE ORCHIDS in our centerpieces mixed with other high quality flowers like white roses. The time and attention we received with Robert and the entire staff was incredible. We went in one day to make a payment a few months before the wedding and my wife was really stressed out and upset with "wedding complications" (happens to everyone). I was on a phone call in my car while she went inside to tell Robert we were there for our appointment and she was noticeably upset and started tearing up. 2 of the staff members there pulled her aside, got her some tissues and water and consoled her until I came inside ( I had no idea she had started crying). Robert then came over and they all have us the advice that this was our day and to not let anyone else ruin it. That is ABOVE AND BEYOND CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! Not only was their product absolutely gorgeous but their professionalism and courtesy to our every need was unbelievable. They are, in my opinion, the only destination that anyone needs to go to for ANY of their floral needs.

Love pedestals! I actually had to switch florists 2 weeks before our wedding.. They were fully booked the day that I called but they told me to come In right away and they fit me into their busy schedule. They listened to what I wanted. My flowers came out beautiful! Even better then I had imagined.

We are STILL coming off cloud nine from our wedding three weeks ago, but we felt we had to stop and thank one of our favorite people on our wedding journey! After a recommendation from a family friend, we met with Rob just two months before our wedding. It was the best decision we’ve made throughout the entire wedding process! Being one of those girls who had dreamed of her wedding since she was little, I had a specific idea of what I wanted the event to look and feel like. In my wildest dreams I could not have imagined just how spectacular it would turn out to be. It has been an absolute pleasure working with Rob. He listened to every word my mom, husband and I had to say, and gave wonderful input. He was easily accessible despite busy schedules and distance! In this time, he became more of a friend than a vendor. He is truly passionate about his work and his enthusiastic attitude is just contagious! He was willing to go the extra mile for us and his hard work and dedication paid off tenfold. Our guests told us they’ve never before been to such a beautiful wedding and the flowers made the entire event! We completely agree! We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to work with Rob and will never forget how beautiful he made our day. We would recommend his services to all!

Words cannot express how grateful I am to Rob and the staff at pedestals for exceeding my expectations and making my dreams come true and creating a winter wonderland for my wedding day. So many brides complain about the shortcomings of their florist on their wedding day whether it be something missing or just falling short of their expectations. I can assure any bride that such is not the case with Rob and the Pedestals staff by your side. Let me say that "draw dropping" and "perfect" we're just some of the words thrown around by my guests when the doors opened to both my ceremony and reception. I am forever grateful for a job well done!!

My wedding was this past Sunday, December 8th 2013. My friend who was married last year used Pedestal and referred them to me. Rob was the one who helped both of us. Out of all the vendors that I have dealt with, which is a lot, Pedestal is by far, one of the absolute best! We had 2 amazing trees that formed an arch for our alter. The tree was lined with blue orchids, with a blue lighting showcasing it. Our centerpieces were a mix of trees, gorgeous candelabras, and low sets of white snowy roses. My bouquet was complimented by EVERYONE who saw it. Everything, and I mean, EVERYTHING, was absolutely amazing. Exceeded my expectations. When they delivered the bouquets and boutonniere, earlier than I expected, they were gorgeous. Not only were they gorgeous, but they delivered 2 sets of boutonniere for all the groomsmen, groom, dads, etc! They said they provided extras in case the groomsmen crushes theirs from the hugs expected throughout the night. Definitely quality products and services for a good value. LOVE YOU PEDESTAL!! LOVE YOU ROB & (Arty)STAFF!!!

We just got married two weeks ago and we used Pedestals as our florist. Their price was the best that we came across and the flowers we received were absolutely stunning. Flowers was something that was not that important to me, but I have to say - as soon as they arrived at my house that day I could not stop raving about them. The bouquets and boutonnieres were fresh and the colors of the flowers were so vibrant. We included peacock feathers in the girls' bouquets and they were definitely a great quality. The flowers at our venue were also spectacular. Nadia and the staff was wonderful and easy to work with and we could not have been happier!

Second time using Pedestals for a wedding and the always meet my expectations. My sister used them for her wedding six years ago and when I got married this November I had to go with them because of the amazing job they did back then. Well I paid less then half of what my sister paid and my arrangements were to die for. Joseph say my vision completely. I will use pedestals for any big event the I plan.

My flowers were absolutely breathtaking and I received so many compliments on my arrangements! They really did a wonderful job making my vision come true, and Joseph S went above and beyond to create exactly what I dreamed of for my wedding. He was accommodating and it was clear he knew what he was talking about. The people who delivered my flowers were so responsive and came over to the hotel we were at next door just to show them to me before they brought them to my bridal suite at my reception hall. When we said we wanted some more flowers on the cake, they did it immediately and were so friendly. The only "issue" I had (which had to do with the type of flower itself) was that my gardenias in my bouquet started turning brown around the edges. The day of, I asked them to trim some areas where the petals were turning, but it seemed they didn't. That being said, I wanted the gardenias (it's our "family flower") so it was a risk I knew I was taking. I loved using Pedestals and I would recommend them to anyone who asked!!!

Pedestals were great to work with! Joe was very knowledgeable and knew what I wanted. He was very helpful in making choices for me being that my knowledge for flowers isn't so great. I showed him a few pictures, told him I wanted rustic, very detailed, centerpieces. They came out amazing! I wish I could post a picture! The flowers arrived on time the morning of the wedding which is number 1 concern for many brides. If you book with pedestals, you will not be disappointed! Thankyou so much for being apart of our wedding!

I decided to use Pedestals Floral Decorators for my centerpieces at my wedding. When I met with Steven P. I showed him various pictures of sample centerpieces that I loved on Pedestals website, as well as pictures of my wedding dress, in order to give him inspiration as to how I envisioned my centerpieces to look on my wedding day. After discussing my vision with Steven, he read my mind and showed me a gorgeous sample centerpiece. We further collaborated on how to make this centerpiece my own to fit the romantic them of my wedding. When I came back to Pedestals a few months later to see my sample, I was so happy with the gorgeous final product and it exceeded all of my expectations (which were extremely high to begin with)!!!! Steven and the Pedestals team were great to work with and I would recommend Pedestals (and I already have!) to any bride who is looking for a florist that is dedicated to understanding a bride's vision and creating one of a kind centerpieces that will blow your guests away!

There are not enough words to describe how beautiful Steven from Pedestals Florist made my reception room look the day of my wedding, it was absolutely breathtaking! From the minute I met Steven at a showcase I knew he was the guy to do all of my floral arrangements for my "fairy tale" wedding. He was so patient and really aimed to please me, he was so concerned about making sure I was happy with everything. He took so much time with me to make sure everything was perfect, and I can not thank him enough. Everyone at my wedding could not believe how beautiful everything was, and all the little details that helped make it all come together. I'll be the first to admit I drove the poor guy CRAZY, but he delivered more than I could of ever imagined and I'm so glad I had Steven there. I knew Pedestals had a great reputation and I had heard so many great things about them, but when I walked into the Palazzo Room at The Venetian and saw how amazing it all looked, I got to really appreciate all the talent that Pedestals has to offer. When booking a florist there is no other choice but Pedestals. Not only are they awesome at what they do, but they also make you feel comfortable and at ease. I felt like I was talking to my friend who I've known for a million years opposed to some vendor that I was just another contract to. I am so happy with the relationship I've created with Steven and the staff at Pedestals, and will definitely use them for future occasions! They're simply the best!!

I didn't use many floral pieces at my wedding because of personal choice, but the few pieces I had from Pedestals were FANTASTIC! My bouquet was gorgeous, full of bright fall colors, and they even made a piece for me in a pumpkin! The few pieces I had certainly were a statement and absolutely beautiful. The delivery was prompt and all the flowers looked great!

When i say that Robert is a flower miracle worker i am not even in the slightest kidding. We had our first consultation about 9 months before my event. I showed some pictures, talked about the theme for my wedding the color scheme i wanted etc. When it came time for our mock up centerpiece i was literally blown away. Robert took what I wanted and made it even BETTER.
The day of the event was so smooth. All of the bouquets were stunning. My bridesmaids were all obsessed with their bouquets and they looked fabulous against their dresses. The team that came to deliver the flowers and set everything up was beyond professional and made sure to ask my opinion.
I couldn't recommend Robert and the team at pedestals enough.

What can I say about Virgil! What a guy! Virgil was very attentive and on point! When he says he's going to do something he will, and with class at that. You get a feel for the company right when you walk in, which is a good feel at that. Prices were very good I feel for the work that they do, and the delivery was on point! When my wife was unsure of something they fixed it right on the spot during the appointments. Honestly nothing bad to say about these guys!!!

I used Pedestals as my florist for my wedding in October 2013. Virgil was the person I worked with. At first, I assumed that they would be out of my price range. I told Virgil I was on a tight budget and he completely understood (which was not was I had been used to with other florists I had visited). They work with your price range and do outstanding work. The flowers were unbelievably beautiful!! Additionally, Virgil makes recommendations for other things you can do (but he is never ever pushy)!!
Their delivery service was perfectly on time and even the delivery staff goes out of their way to make sure you have everything and even know how to pick up the flowers to get them out of the boxes!
They were fantastic and I highly recommend them, especially if you are trying to stay on a tight budget!!

As an October bride, I always knew I wanted to have the over-the-top tree centerpieces as a wow factor for my wedding. I knew if I wanted to truly achieve this look, there would be no other place to go but Pedestals!! I was lucky to have worked with Steven - who just happens to have the same wedding anniversary as me (it was meant to be that we work together, ha!) Steven is extremely friendly, professional and knowledgable. No matter how many times I changed my mind with certain flowers and colors, Stevens' responsiveness to my phone calls and emails were phenomenal. From the moment I met with Steven, I knew he understood my vision and I was 100% confident that he would take it and make it more than I could imagine - and boy was I right! The morning of my wedding I was in awe over my bouquet and my bridesmaids bouquets. Then, when I was at my reception and finally had the reveal of my room, I literally had to hold back tears as I stared at the beautiful, stunning, gorgeous work Steven created for me. He truly took my vision and turned it into something so beautiful and a million times more then anything I could have ever dreamed of. My wedding was an amazing day and the flowers, tree centerpieces, crystals and candles that my family and friends are STILL talking about are all in thanks to Steven and Pedestals!!! Steven, thank you for all of your hard work and dedication to making my day the most beautiful day of my life. Steven and the Pedestals team are the best of the best....I highly recommend going to Pedestals and speaking to Steven for your big day or next event. PS - Pedestals throws the BEST showcase events and a lot of my ideas came from going to that showcase and viewing the different looks with Steven while I was there. Like I said, Pedestals is the best of the best and if you are lucky enough to work with Steven you will be nothing but thrilled with the look of your event. Thanks again Steven for everything!! Love, Michelle & Jesse

Getting married was the best day of my life and I want to take this time to thank Steven and the Pedestals Crew for making that happen for us. I am one of those people who strive for perfection in everything she does, whether it be education wise or professional wise or recently throwing a phenomenal wedding that was absolutely PERFECT. Well....Steven and Pedestals made that happen. I cannot stress enough how wonderful they were and how they created PERFECTION. For well over a year Steven dealt with me as I continued and continued to modify my vision until it was EXACTLY what I wanted. E-mail after e-mail I would send to Steven and within minutes I would have a detailed response to my inquiry. I walked into Pedestals with a vision and with Steven's expertise and amazing taste in floral decor.my vision was executed PERFECTLY! The arrangements deviated from a custom 16 foot enchanted forest across our King's Table to enchanted trees and stunning floral arrangements. The flowers were not to be believed. Every flower was bright white and must have been hand picked because every flower was perfect!I can't thank them enough for everything they did for us, Pedestals comes HIGHLY recommended and I highly recommend Steven to be your consultant. He knows how to listen to what a bride wants and that is VERY IMPORTANT. He is also honest and will guide you in the direction to make your wedding or any other event in your life over the top and done impeccably. My bridal bouquet was also custom.

The floral arrangements for my daughters' wedding were beyond belief. Absolutely fabulous!! Each bouquet, each centerpiece shows the care that Pedestals puts into their creations. The hanging lit candles on the candelabras and trees make the ballroom sparkle. and the reviews from our guests are still coming in.

Thanks so much for a wonderful display of your creatons

From the start Pedestals was amazing! I dealt with Phil and he helped create beautiful centerpieces. All 22 centerpieces were exactly what we wanted! My cascading bouquet was breath taking!! All the flowers were of great quality and last for so many days after the wedding! Pedestals was the only florist we went to see. I wouldn't bother with any of the others! Thank you Phil!!

Pedestals did an unbelievable job on my wedding flowers. From the minute i first met with Joseph i knew they were the right choice. Communication from start to finish was excellent, and Joseph worked with me to get the best price and the best look for my theme and budget. I'm still getting compliments on the flowers months later. They are clearly the best in the industry and I am so happy they were part of my special day.

Steven and the team at Pedestals were an absolute pleasure to work with. From the moment my Husband and I met with Steven he understood our vision and brought it to life in a way I didn't think would be possible. Every detail was covered and people walked into both our ceremony and reception and were floored. I wish I could hold my gorgeous cascading phalaenopsis orchid bouquet everyday, it was amazing!! Thank you Steven and Pedestals for your hard work and amazing execution for our wedding day!

The professionalism and attention shown by everyone there was wonderful. From the first meeting our florist took time to find out what we envisioned for our wedding concept from the style of the wedding dress, color scheme, flower preferences, bridesmaid dresses and venue. It felt like he was as personally invested in it as we were. Being an out of state bride they were extremely accommodating and flexible when it came to scheduling meetings and mockups. The work the they do is exceptional and doing business with them was an extremely pleasurable experience. Overall the end result exceeded my expectations.

THE BEST IN FLORAL DESIGN BY FAR!!!!
Steven from Pedestals was AMAZING to work with! As a Wedding Planner, it is very important to me to choose vendors that I work well with and who my clients can fall in love with! Steven from Pedestals was that guy for us.

He was responsive to ALL of my emails and phone calls, and more so. he brought to life a vision that both the bride and I had!

To me, it's all about the planning "experience" and the "feeling" you get when designing a wedding. Pedestals made all the "warm & fuzzies" come to life!

Stevens team the day of the event was FABULOUS! They complied with all of my last minutes changes and additions and they made our dreams become a reality! When I do a "Reveal" of the room to my couple and the Bride starts to cry, I know it was a JOB WELL DONE!

I look forward to the next opportunity when Steven from Pedestals and Jennifer Evans Events, LLC can collaborate together again! LOVE YOU GUYS!!!!

BRIDAL SHOW CENTERPIECE REVIEW 8.4.13: The day of my bridal shower was absolutely an amazing day and I will never forget it. Pedestals and my consultant Steven are mainly to thank for it being THAT wonderful. My centerpieces for the shower were detailed, coordinated with my theme and so carefully crafted. Steven knows just how to add every bride's touch to the flowers by adding something to the centerpiece that screams this is so the bride! Each centerpiece was carefully decorated and each flower was perfect! People were fighting over taking home the centerpieces because they were stunning!! If Pedestals did such an amazing job for my shower.....I could only imagine what they would do for my wedding which I am sure the centerpieces and bouquets will be nothing less than SPECTACULAR. SO CALL PEDESTALS AND ASK FOR STEVEN POLIZZI HES WONDERFUL... Thank you so much Pedestals and I can't wait to see you again!!!!!!!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

OMG!!! My daughter's wedding was on 07/27/2013 in Tom O'Shanter Country Club in Brookville and I have to say that the flowers from Pedestal Florist were the most amazing creations I have ever seen. Everybody keep talking about them and I couldn't keep my eyes off them the whole evening. The Chuppah was the most beautiful Chuppah in the world and I am the most grateful to Robert for making our dreams come true. He has an amazing taste and manners and I can't thank him and his crew for doing the most professional job. They truly went above and beyond what I expected. The best florists around!!!!!!! I just take my hat off for what they did for us!!!! I wish I had one more daughter to marry off so I can use them again...:) Thank you Robert and everyone else who took part in making our hall the most beautiful fairy tale place in the world!

Pedestals did an amazing job for our wedding on 7/27/13. We can't say enough about Joseph and the entire team. He truly understood our vision and brought it to life. We picked a design with branches for the centerpieces and we had people coming up to us saying if they would have fit in their car, they would have taken them. That's how much they loved it. The bouquets were crazy gorgeous. We highly recommend pedestal for all your floral and decorating needs. You will not be disappointed!

My wedding was exceptional to say the least. I worked with Steven from Pedestals and from the very beginning he was AMAZING! He spent time with us like we were the only customers in the world going over every single detail, picture, flower you could imagine. The bouquets were out of this world as were the centerpieces, his creativity is fantastic. Usually no one remembers the flowers yet, I am still hearing compliments all the time on how beautiful they were. I preserved my bouquet and dried some of the flowers from my centerpiece and its a great addition to our new home. I highly recommend using Pedestals and ask for Steven! He is the best!

Pedestals is so professional. We loved them the first time we met them but understood they were a little expensive. We won a gift card from our venue's showcase so that made our decision and I was happy. The room we had and the tables they have at our venue, we didn't want to do the high pedestals in case anyone wanted to talk across the table. We had low centerpieces and we were very pleased with them. They match our wedding colors and they had roses, hydrangeas and peonies. They also decorated our sweetheart table. Virgil was our representative and floral decorator. I was in love with my bouquet and my bridesmaids bouquet as well. Everyone who saw mine thought it look great. They had some bling in it as well. I got my flower preserved because I loved it that much.

We had Robert & he was GREAT to my husband and I. We weren’t 100% sure of what exactly we want. All we know is that we want the colors of red/white and almost no green to avoid it to look Christmassy. He actually went through sample photographs with us to get an idea of what we like. He got the concept and he was very honest on our choices of flowers, EX: I wanted peonies for my bridesmaids & he was aware that my wedding is an ALL day event so he warned me that peonies wouldn’t “look good” at the end of the night when it was being carried all over the places. I was so glad that he was SO honest about the choice of flowers and he really made it special by having all of the girls to carry roses but 2 of my MOH carry bigger bouquets and my roses were black magic (roses) with rhinestones. I was worried that they’ll forget the rhinestones but they didn’t and it looks GORGEOUS!!!!! The flowers for the guys/grandparents/parent were PERFECT. We had a budget & Robert really respected our wishes and found a way to meet our dreams within our budget. We went to see Rob again to check out the centerpiece that he came up. We noticed that there were too much white roses and Rob was like… “it’s no problem”, he had the florist to come out and did a quick fix by replacing all of the white roses to red roses. It looks LOVELY. I couldn’t be happier. Of course, people warned me that the sample centerpiece would look nothing like the actual centerpiece on the day of our wedding, well, not with Pedestals!!! I was so HAPPY when I saw my centerpieces, they did a GREAT job! Not only that, they added flowers on our cake, added candles/petals during cocktail hour, petals on every tables at reception, they even put flowers on a table with table numbers. I couldn’t ask for a better vender to work with!!!

I was lucky enough to use Pedestals florists for all my floral needs for my May 5th wedding at the Allegria Hotel. We worked with Virgil who is my version of a floral genuis. I always knew what I wanted for my flowers but had a hard time describing it. I told Virgil that I wanted classy and romantic floral arrangements with different shades of pink, whites and creams. That was ALL I told him. I cannot tell you how overly impressed, to the point of tears, I was when I saw what he came up with for my center piece trial. I was so impressed that I completely forgot to inquire about all of my bouquets and seating card table. I guess I just instintually trusted him. I am so glad that I allowed him that freedom of creativity because my jaw (along with all my bridesmaids and mother) hit the floor when I saw my bridal bouquets. I have never in my life seen anything so beautiful. They were not your typical one color or one type of flower bridemaids bouquets they were a smaller version of my centerpieces and they were mini works of art. I originally told Virgil I did not want any sparkle in my bouquet but he wound up throwing a few crystals in and it totally completed the most perfect bridal bouquet I have ever seen. Yes, Pedestals was more expensive then a majority of the florists on Long Island but I cannot express enough how much it was worth it. I would pay every cent over again to feel the happiness I did when I saw all the floral arrangements at my wedding.

Steven went above and beyond with our flower arrangement, being patient with us, truly listening to what we had imagined, and paying attention to every little detail we wanted. I was originally suppose to be married tomorrow, however we found out we were having a little bundle of joy and quickly changed the wedding from October 18th 2013 to January 27th 2013. We called Steven in a panic and he reassured us that everything would be fine. Sure enough, everything was more then fine and trust me my mother is quite the perfectionist and she was blown away! I thank Steven and the Pedestals team for their superior hard work and dedication. People are STILL talking about my flowers!!!!

It was a wonderful experience working with Pedestals. The flowers were beautiful. My original wedding date was 11/1/12. It had to be postponed due to Hurricane Sandy. Pedestals was ready to go but we just could mot move forward due to the power outages. Since they were ready to go and we weren't there was a chance we were not going to have any flowers. BUT, to my surprise and absolute delight they decided to work with us. They were under no obligation to continue to work with us past our original contracted date but they did. As long as I didn't change my color palate or flowers they would be there for me on my big day. 5 weeks later they delivered my beautiful flowers. Go to Pedestals Floral decorators for all your floral needs. They are the best in the business.

The flowers were spectacular!!!
The ceremony was romantic with large candles and a beautiful soft flowing uplit chuppah. The cocktail room tables were surrounded with cylinders filled with orchids floating in water with floating candles on top.
The ballroom was a masterpiece. Three different large centerpieces were harmoniously arranged on the tables which were dramatic and elegant.
Pin lighting on the tables and wedding cake, and amber lighting throughout the ballroom added an extra touch to keep the colors of the room warm and mellow.

The bridal bouquet was fabulous as were the bridesmaids.
And the entrance hall centerpiece- guests are still raving about it.

The entire process from beginning to end was fun! Others brides and their families talk about stress- this was fun!

Truly magnificent- the floral creations by Pedestals were breathtakingly beautiful. The chuppah and ceremony flowers (and candles) were gorgeous, bouquets were outstanding, and the reception centerpieces (3 different styles) were superb. Complements have been pouring in to us from guests who were as impressed as we were thrilled. Robert Herzog was a pleasure to work with- he truly listened, was always accessible, and designed amazing arrangements that reflected our individuality and perfectly suited our venue and vision. The final products actually exceeded our very high expectations. We really believe that it was a fantastic decision to choose Pedestals.

We were so fortunate to have found Pedestals for our wedding! Their floral designs are unique and really stand apart from the crowd. Phil was nothing short of amazing and took the inspiration photos for my wedding and made them reality. Based on the bridesmaids dresses and my own gown, Phil was able to design bouquets that complimented the dresses and had an element of originality. It was also great that his team texted me a photo of the bouquets the day before the wedding to make sure that I was happy with how they looked. Phil had designed weddings previously at our reception hall and was able to suggest arrangements that complimented style and size of the room. Our guests were amazed at how regal the florals and stands looked. His team was also amazing in getting everything delivered on time to our tri state wedding locations.

Pedestals was the perfect florist to choose for our wedding day. Nadia is extremely warm, friendly, and helpful. Best of all, she truly listens to you and executes your vision. Our flowers had a few minor deviations from the original plan, but the final product - from centerpieces to bouquets to more - was truly beautiful. Guests were breath-taken when they walked into our reception room by the gorgeous centerpieces. Although Pedestals may cost a few dollars more than some of its competitors, they are worth every dollar you spend because you know that you will receive the freshest, highest-quality flowers in beautiful, creative, and impeccable arrangements. The service we received from Nadia was truly exceptional and I will always be grateful for the support that she provided on the most important day of my life.

Pedestals is simply amazing! You won't find a better florist on Long Island. I almost didn't visit them because I knew that they were very high-end so I thought the prices would be out of my league. I was so surprised when they came in under my flower budget! Their service is what made me love them the most--ask for Phyllis. She went out of her way to get me everything I dreamed of. My bouquet was unforgettable too...exactly what I wanted.

I had the pleasure of working with Virgil and loved my entire experience! I was blessed to work with Pedestals for two wedding receptions and they did an amazing job for both. The flowers were gorgeous, fresh and delivered on time. I did not have an issue on either receptions with them. Virgil was great in helping me design each reception as both were quite different from one another. My bouquets were gorgeous and the centerpieces were stunning! The only bad thing is that I did not have a 3rd reception to continue to work with Virgil and have gorgeous flowers and centerpieces.

Christopher Michael designed the flowers by my Mom’s 90th birthday luncheon, and they were sensational! According to my mother (who is notoriously picky), “Now, THOSES are beautiful flowers…” They were just perfect and we loved the scattered rose petals that were sprinkled around all of the centerpieces; they added softness to the dark furniture at The Carltun, and looked just lovely. An aunt who took one of the arrangements home commented on the gorgeous smell of the roses the next day, and how long they lived.
Christopher and the crew at Pedestals were part of making the day very special for us

Rob was a pleasure to work with at Pedestals. He knew exactly what I was looking for from day one. My bridesmaids dresses were cobalt blue(not easy to match flowers) and we were doing a black tie event. We chose to do all white flowers since it was more formal and it turned out amazing. Everyone was fighting over who wanted to take home the centerpieces at the end of the night. My bouquet as well as my bridesmaids bouquets all came out beautiful as well. Pedestals are expensive but worth it! Thank you Rob!

We worked with Robert and he is an absolute genious. My husband and I had an orchard theme for our wedding and we knew we didnt want to use the typical arrangements we had seen at various florists and at other weddings. When we entered Pedestals, we saw many beautiful pieces but we knew we wanted to create something new. We described our vision to Robert and when we saw our sample, we were absolutely blown away. He is so creative and captured our dreams perfectly. Our guests loved it and even the staff at our venue said they had never seen centerpieces so beautiful. They took our breath away with every piece - centerpieces, bouquets, cocktail area. To think that I accidentally came across this florist and decided to go into the studio...I am so glad I did.

I had my wedding on June 24th at Jericho Terrace. I booked my flowers with Nadia, and she really made the whole process fun for me. When I first started shopping around for a florist, I had no idea what I wanted. Nadia was extremely patient and provided me with great ideas. I saw 2 samples of my centerpieces before my actual wedding day, because I changed my colors. One was more beautiful than the other. When I walked into my reception room on my wedding day I was completely blown away at how beautiful everything turned out to be. My friends are still talking about the bouquets (especially mine). Thank you Pedestals for making my wedding day even more beautiful than I could have imagined.

Anyone looking for wedding decor should use Pedestals. I worked with Christopher Michaels after meeting him at my friend's wedding, which he also did. Not only did he do my flowers, but also designed lighting that changed throughout the night depending on whether we were eating or up dancing. He also helped me choose my bridesmaids dresses, which I was having a hard time deciding on. Everything was beautiful! <3 <3 <3

I was very pleased with my experience with Pedestals Florists. We worked with Nadia and she was very helpful-we went through a bunch of photos and showed her what we were looking for, as well as providing her with swatches for the wedding colors and what the mothers of the bride & groom would be wearing and she tied it all together for us. Our centerpieces were beautiful, as well as mine and my matron of honors bouquets, and all the boutonnieres and the mothers' corsages. They decorated our dais & place card setting table with rose petals and votives and even the flowers they provided to decorate our wedding cake with were beautiful. We would highly recommend them!

I got married this past June at the Westmount Country Club. I was recommended to Robert Herzog from two of my friends whose weddings I had attended as a guest. Both weddings were very beautiful, but not really my taste. When I first went to meet Robert I had a vision in my head of what I wanted. After speaking with him, he gave me some of his own ideas and completely steered me in a new direction. A few months before my wedding Robert showed me a mock-up of what he designed for me, and also of what I had originally wanted. This really helped me make decisions, since I got to see both of my options in person. On my wedding day, when my bouquets were delivered, I realized I ordered one less bouquet than I needed. I freaked out imagining one of my bridesmaids being without flowers. When I called Robert, he had another bouquet made and sent to us within an hour. In the end my wedding flowers were GORGEOUS!

My wedding venue suggested Pedestals as a florist so we went to meet with them and they were so professional yet personable. The arrangements were beautiful and selections were vast and most important, they worked with our budget. We saw some samples and fell in love immediately and on the day of the wedding the florist arrived early to set up and did little extra things to make our space gorgeous. Needless to say, we are so happy with the service and have not one bad word. THANKS PEDESTALS!

I had shopped other florists and I clicked with him and after makiing me several samples he got my exact vision. I was a bit difficult because I had so many ideas but he was very patient and took his time to help me put my ideas together. His prices were very fair and I highly reccomend them.

All I have to say is if you go here you MUST see Nadia! Everyone there is great, but in my opinion she is the BEST! I came in there with somewhat of an idea and some colors and she turned my ideas into a work of art! From the second I met her I knew Pedestals was it! She immediately took my ideas into the back and started pulling flowers she thought I would like. The colors and flower choices were exactly what I wanted and better. My bouquet, centerpieces, bridesmaids bouquets....everything was unbelievable! Pedestals happens to be a lil on the pricey side but you get what you pay for, and then some! I would highly recommended Pedestals...as a matter of fact all my friends and family members getting married are going there on recommendation from me! I know I will never go anywhere else, thats for sure!

My Wedding was at Oheka Castle on May 6th 2011. I am not sure about the other postings as I can only speak for me and my NEW husband. But Christopher did an amazing job. When I first met with him I discussed my budget. He worked with me and didn't judge me based on my budget like other florists in the area did. When he said something, he delivered as promised. My contract was delivered when he said he was going to deliver it. He didn't forget, never made an excuse for anything. He always returned my calls and emails. They were never delayed. The flowers on the wedding day were so beautiful I WAS STUNNED! My centerpieces were as promised as well as my bouquets, the girls bouquets, and corsages. When we went to our sample we didn't like how the centerpiece came out. BUT Christopher took the time and made sure that we were happy and created another centerpiece. His sincerity and professionalism made us feel that he genuinely cared about our wedding. We were NOT JUST a number. On the wedding day he delivered the flowers on time, the room was decorated exactly to our conversation. He did not miss a thing. I know how much a wedding day can mean to a bride and its unfortunate that some brides had a bad experience. BUT CHRISTOPHER ROCKS!!! We cant thank Pedestals enough for an amazing experience, good quality flowers, and gorgeous centerpieces. I even left my notebook there and Pedestals over-nighted it to me. It had all my notes and wedding planning information. Thank you Pedestals, you made the day I have been dreaming about come true!

Rob H was my go to man from the very beginning and was able to practically read my mind in regards to flowers for my wedding. I provided him with details about our wedding (e.g., cocktail style, classy, no garder throwing, live musicians playing mostly Buble style music with fun dance choices thrown in, warm rustic, vineyard like room feel for cocktail hour and simple yet elegant reception room with 2 out of 4 walls floor to ceiling windows, etc) and he was able to create right before my eyes, the most bold and beautiful color and flower combination I could have ever imagined. He was receptive to my input and would try anything I asked. Although anything I thought I wanted to change, I always reverted back to his original suggestion bc he was just that good! The morning of our wedding our flowers arrived at our hotel suite by 7 am in NJ, almost 2 hours away from the florist, and the delivery guys were great. I can honestly say when I looked at the flowers for the first time-they took my breath away and I was ecstatic. Everything about them was gorgeous- they were even more beautiful than I expected- bold, bright, full, fresh and simply gorgeous! We had a prestigious florist of 30+ years experience as a guest and when he saw the centerpieces at our reception, he himself said he had never seen such unbelievable work! This florist comes highly recommended for service, price and quality...They were amazing and I will use them and recommend them again and again!

He listened to our colors and requests and made the most beautiful three types of centerpieces for our special day. The bridal bouquet was gorgeous! More than was expected! They make samples a few weeks before your wedding so you can tweek any changes you might want. We knew what to expect showing up at our wedding and were blown away as Pedestals beat our expectations! They worked with us for our price range as well. I would use them again for any event!

Choosing Pedestals Florist was the best decision we made. Our ceremony and wedding flowers and bouquets were gorgeous and we owe it to Robert Herzog. Robert is the best person to meet with, he has a lot of patience (I changed my mind a lot and he had no issue) and he is very creative. He will take the time to pick some flowers out of the back and show you how they look together to give a better idea. They made my centerpieces absolutely amazing and my reception looked like an enchanted forest. Recommend to everyone!

I mean OMG my bouquet i mean my "bouquets" was meant for a princess they were breath-taking. Rich you made not just my husband but my dreams came true. It was well worth it. Our reception was a Platinum Wedding , we have people till this day still talking about our Center Pieces.

I was nervous about the flowers because I had a specific vision in my head that it was hard to convey in words, and somehow Robert just nailed it, I could not have been more pleased with how the color scheme I wanted came together, the high centerpieces he designed for us looked incredible, and the bouquets were so beautiful. We could not have been more impressed with Pedestals' work and every time we called or went to the office the entire staff was extremely helpful and polite. They did a fantastic job and we got so many compliments about the flowers and decor, we are so happy we worked with Pedestals for our wedding.

This florist is completely unlike a neighborhood florist. When one enters the showroom it becomes immediately apparent that this is the florist for a "very special event." The showroom features tables with displays of flowers with a Victorian look to others that are strikingly contemporary. The flowers at my daughter's wedding were so beautiful that everyone kept asking for the name of the florist. I could have handed out business cards.

Rob at Pedestals was a god send. Pedestals had done two other weddings for my family and always did an amazing job. We started working with Rob about a month before the wedding and he was able to pull together my image for the wedding in very little time and everything was beyond beautiful. I loved my bouquet and my bridesmaids flowers and all of the table arrangements. The ceremony looked great even with very little decoration. I loved every detail and am so glad to have been able to work with Rob and the rest of the Pedestals staff.

In addition, I forgot to tell them that we were not getting ready at home, but they easily remedied this by dropping our personal flowers off at our venue, at the last minute! Everything went off without a hint of a problem ( my fault for not alerting them of the hotel stay). My bouquet of roses is still sitting, dried, on my dining room table. I just can't bear to part with it. Thank you so much Nadia and Pedestals!

Pedestals was a wonderful florist to work with! They were very receptive to what my husband and I wanted and came up with creative ideas that fit both our venue and our budget! We are so happy with how the floral arrangements turned out, from the bouquets to the table centerpieces to the specialized floral pieces they made for our venue. The quality of their work is fantastic and they provided us with everything we asked for, without a hitch! I recommend Pedestals to anyone...and ask for Nadia, she is the best!

It hurts me to take a 1/2 of star from pedestal.... From the moment I went in to the store I was in love with every piece.... my Florist name was Joseph and He is excellent.. Everything was great except the never but my chuppah in to the reception area which another bride got to use it in the chapel for free just talking about it make me upset.. and the flowers for my mother, sister Godmother, father and groom was not what Joseph and choose. I'm not saying it was not beautiful but i just did not want roses for them..... other than that exceptional.......Pedestals.....

I highly recommend Pedestals Florists. The price is high but if you have a feeling, ambiance or vision, they can execute it.

Vito was great to work with!

They did a great job, and their price was the best in the area! Some of the other places I looked quoted me double what Pedestals did.

I changed all of my bouquets/ boutonniere/corsages about a month before the wedding and they had no problem at all. They all turned out amazing!

There were two slight problems. 1-The cake was not decorated how I asked, actually it was decorated exactly how I told them I didn’t want it decorated. 2-My centerpieces were not exactly what we agreed on. I never took it up with Pedestals because all in all they were minor details, however now when I look at the pictures-of the cake especially I’m a little let down. (Side note-my neighbor who is a florist did tell me that sometimes the shipments come in and half the flowers are unusable, so they had to substitute what they could last minute…so that could be an explanation.)

Despite the 2 setback though, my experience with them was great.

I worked with Nadia from Pedestals and I LOVED her! I did not want typical centerpieces and she totally got my vision and made it come to life! My bridal bouquet was stunning. I still cannot believe how beautiful it was. Pedestals is a bit pricey and I'm sure I could have found a better price out there...but the quality speaks for itself. My flowers were exquisite. The only tiny criticism I have is the groomsmen flowers died by the time we made it to the reception which bummed me out. This is easy to overlook however because of the phenomenal job they did with everything else.

Nadia really knows her stuff and was really able to understand the classic vintage look I wanted. The only issue I had were with my church flowers weren't what we discussed, but they did look beautiful. If I had to do it all over again, I would use Pedestals again. They really worked hard to make me happy.

I was so impressed with all the flowers at our wedding. We had both high and low centerpieces. They were even bigger and prettier than they were when I went to see the samples. I worked with Christopher and could not have been happier. I didn't know what i wanted for bouquets, just what colors I wanted and he put together the most beautiful ones I have ever seen. I would highly reccomend using pedestals, their customer service and their products are wonderful.

We were recommended to Pedestals by Joe, Manager at Giando On the Water, our reception venue. From our first meeting with Virgil to my multiple last meetings with him at the Garden City office, Virgil was a joy to work with. He listened and supported my vision and then he took the lead and created gorgeous floral designs for our wedding. I had my doubts due to reading several poor reviews that actually mentioned Virgil's name in the past. However, he and the staff proved those bad reviews wrong. Virgil and his staff were responsive to my requests and was flexible with our budget. My flowers were so beautiful several of my friends and guests believed the flowers were fake! Everything set up was picture perfect and believe me, I have the pictures to prove just how much of an awesome job was done for us by Virgil and his staff. Virgil is truly an artist and very fun to share ideas with!

When we met with out advisor we were extremely happy and confident that our flowers were going to be amazing. The price was extremely good we chose 8 tall centerpieces and 8 short with 3 candles in the middle. We also had 5 bridesmaids and 5 ushers with bouquets for our mothers and petals for our flower girl as well as our fathers and 2 ring boys. The church also got 2 large flower pieces and 10 for our benches, all for alittle over 3K i was shocked.. When we went to see our sample centerpiece i was in awww absolutely gorgeous we just made a few changes... When it came to the wedding day our centerpieces didn't have as many flowers as the sample and did not make the changes we had requested, all said and done i was upset but our guest still thought they were gorgeous, when i called to complain they offered me a bouquet of my choice to be delivered but i never got around to it. All and all it was a good experience and would have not gotten such a good price else where.

When we booked our wedding at Westmount Country Club, we were told we had to use one of their florists. They gave us 3 options. When we met with Robert from Pedestals, I knew that we were going to go with them. Robert helped take our ideas and color schemes and turned it into reality. Roberts team is very creative and does pieces I've never seen before. We were very happy with the final product, except our centerpiece trees were supposed to be painted gold, were left plain bark, but they were still beautiful. More importantly, they were on time for church and our houses.

We were very happy working with Christopher from Pedestals from the start. He listened to what we wanted, but also input his professional opinion. He knew we wanted a very bright orange on all our flowers. We were very happy, until we found out that Christopher was no longer working there about a month before our wedding. So we instantly scheduled an appointment to come in, to make sure everyone was on the same page. We then met with Virgil, and he delivered everything as promised on the wedding day. The bouquets were beautiful, vibrant, and looked perfect. The boutonnieres were also exactly what we wanted. He actually sent double the amount of flowers for our centerpieces. We would definitely recommend Pedestals.

I used Robert, who is a manger at Pedestals, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. From the start, he was able to take my vague vision of what I wanted for my wedding and craft it into exactly what I would have pictured if I knew enough about flowers to do so. Unlike other florists I interviewed, he used unique elements and fashion-forward designs, rather than the same tired looks. He seemed really excited to try something different. When he wasn't satisfied with the quality of a flower we'd chosen, he recommended an alternative to me that ended up working even better. On my extremely hot August wedding day, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that he had thoughtfully included an extra boutonniere for the groom and a couple for the groomsmen, so that they would have fresh ones for photos in case the heat affected theirs. Everyone looking at my photos to this day comments on how gorgeous my flowers were. Definitely consider Robert!

Only thing we were upset about was that the flowers were delivered to the wrong address, we had changed the address and i dont know how it wound up going to the old one. Thank god, there was someone at the old address when it was delivered and i was able to get my flowers and not be stressed. Over all, every thing else was awesome!

Pedestals was good to me! I was doing my own centerpieces (Jack-O-Lanterns) so I just needed the rest. The price was right, and they did a fantastic job! My only (minor) complaints are that I felt the lady that was helping me was trying to hard to be "hip" saying things like "It'll be soo Hot!" or "I love you guys!" and kissing me on the cheek etc... and I felt she was trying to hard in that regard to fully understand what I was asking for. I never actually saw an example of what my bouquet would look like. When I went in to make my final payment I waited quite a while to be helped, but I was then able to ask a few more questions. They threw in a lot of easy things (pedals for the cake, throw away bouquet) and she also upgraded my red roses to black magic throughout. It looked fantastic! I would reccommend!

My flowers were beautiful and Pedestal's pegged my vision immediately. They even came up with ideas that I hadn't thought of but ended up loving. Vito was our contact and he was great... he has a real eye for this and is very talented and friendly. My only issue was that the flowers were late arriving at my house. Being the anal bride that I was, I gave them a 2 hour window to get the flowers to my house before we had to leave and thank God I did because they were over an hour late. I was getting nervous! But, the flowers were gorgeous and they did indeed arrive in time to be used in the getting ready pictures. The flowers were great quality and not only survived the humid day but lived for about a week afterwards. I wholeheartedly recommend them and they can't be beat for the price.

They are a bit pricey and only accept cash which was a bit of a let down when you are paying for so many other wedding expenses, however our flowers were absolulty beautiful. Be prepared to spend more than other florists, but you will not be dissapointed with your flowers. And make sure you work with Robert :)

Pedestals Florist did my flowers for my wedding. The flowers looked amazing and I was happy with the turnout, especially with the changes that went on. When I first went to book my florist I was happy with the guy who I sat down and did a consultation with and in fact I booked based on his personality. I found out 1 month before the wedding when I went in to see my actual flower centerpieces & bouquets that he was no longer working there so I was a little upset and nervous with the new guy taking over. The new guy didn't do the centerpieces as I had explained to the past florist causing extreme anxiety. He assured me he would give exactly what I wanted so I sent pictures over and we seemed to get on the same page. I was pleasantly surprised the day of the wedding and would definitely recommend Pedestals.

I worked with Nadia at Pedestals and she was great. She was generally responsive, answered questions on her bberry at night and on weekends, etc. The centerpieces the day of my wedding were extraordinary -- bigger, more grand, taller, and just generally more spectacular than the sample she had done for me a few months before. The reception decor was spot on--no problems. My bouquet was ENORMOUS. My bridesmaid bouquets were about the size of most bridal bouquets.

Pedestals did forget one thing that I had contracted for w/r/t the ceremony decor but as soon as I emailed Nadia and told her about it after the wedding, she was gracious about it and addressed it right away. I can't speak to the other consultants, but if you go to Pedestals, ask for Nadia. The prices she and Phil were able to offer me were really reasonable and their flower design is great.

I had a very good experience with this vendor. Several weeks before the wedding I had the opportunity to see my centerpieces and bouquets, they were perfect. The day before my wedding I was able to see the bridesmaids and my bridal bouquet. I was not happy with one minor detail of the bouquet for my bridesmaids and they worked past closing to change everything. I really appreciated how they accommodated any changes that I had and thought that Vito's enthusiasm was great.

I worked with Vito, and had he been the only player involved here, the rating would have been 5 stars across the board! We had a few instances of Vito being out of town or sick and others (including management) lying to us about samples being prepared by him and throwing them together in five minutes while we waited. That was completely unacceptable behavior on multiple occasions and simply telling me the truth before i drove all the way there would have made a world of difference.
On our wedding day, Vito delivered! I was slightly disappointed the day before that the orchids we got were way too purple, but he remedied the situation. The bouquets were fabulous and the centerpieces were stunning. Definitely brought tears to my eyes!
Vito was wonderful throughout the entire process. He impressed us from our first meeting and he is the reason we booked. The price was also (surprisingly) comparable to other quotes, and i believed he could easily take an idea and run with it, which he did!

I went into the florist having NO idea what I wanted- I'm not really that into flowers. But the sales staff kept bringing out pictures and samples, all the while being so patient! I got perfect bouquets for me and my girls, and the ceremony arangements were gorgeous (even by my mother-in-law's standards!)! The only real complaint I had is that they told me I would get a throw-away bouquet, and they did not bring one...thankfully, one of my bridesmaids did not want to travel from NY to FL with her's, so we used that for the bouquet toss. But other than that, they were excellent! They were not pushy at all, and were still happy with us after we told them we would NOT be needing floral centerpieces!

I worked with Robert at Pedestals. First let me start off by saying that my venue gave me a choice of 3 florists to work with. I met with all 3 and chose Pedestals because Robert was willing to work within my limited floral budget and he really seemed to understand my vision. I have to say that he did an excellent job. The bouquets and centerpieces were phenomenal.

However, he never responded to my emails, he forgotten an appointment that we set up, and on the day of the wedding the flowers were delivered to the wrong address. This wasn't a huge deal, as the correct address was only a few minutes away, and they got them there promptly, but I was extremely annoyed because I emailed Robert the correct address (we originally were having them delivered one place, but then switched it about 2 months before the wedding); then, when I didn't get a response I called him and spoke to him, at which point he assured me that he had the correct address (even reading it back to me), and then on the day of it was still originally taken to the wrong place.

I would recommend Pedestals as they did a wonderful job and my flowers were gorgeous despite my limited budget, but be prepared to be a little bit on top of them.

I had an extremely stress-free experience with Pedestals. Nadia was amazing to work with. I went to our first appointment not really knowing what I wanted and she guided us through the process step-by-step helping us decide on what would look best for our wedding! I absolutely LOVED my bouquet....it was amazing and better than anything I could have imagined! My bridesmaids bouquets were equally amazing. The only thing I would have changed, and this is prob my fault, is that I would have had more flowers in my reception hall......for such a large room the flowers we had chosen didn't really Fill the room as I had imagined.....prob bc we went with half high and half low centerpieces.....but other than that everything was wonderful!!!!!!

Great florist to work with. I'm a very picky client and had taken a photo of exactly what i wanted and requested that they reproduce it at a set budget, They were very willing to work with me on that, hence the great grade for flexibility. However, despite the sample being correct, the final products for my center pieces were not as "perfect" although it wasn't noticeable to anyone else. It wasn't a disaster, but simply made me wonder why I needed to waste the time to review the sample if the final products weren't going to be fixed according tot he mock.

I worked with Robert who was beyond helpful and professional. I really enjoyed working with him. We had a "trail" to view my centerpieces which were absolutely gorgeous! I feel in love with them instantly.
BUT when it came down to the day of my wedding, the pieces were different then what he had showed me and what I agreed to pay for. They were much smaller, the colors were wrong and the display was incorrect! I contacted him to let him know I was not pleased and he said he would need picutres. First of all, HOW would I possibly have these pics? I'm the bride, did he think I was carrying a camera around with me? Second, how does he not know what the pieces HE set up looked like? and Lastly, all he had to do was read the contract and it was clearly stated I wanted WHITE, NOT colors! Once I told him all these facts he began to ignore my emails. So I contacted my photographer and was able to get the photos needed and immediately sent them over. As you can guess, I haven't heard from Robert since, I do not recommend his services.

Vito did a beautiful job on our flowers. They turned out to be everything I wanted. The only thing that truly upset me was when I went in to make my final payment with one of the ladies, he walked right by me and never even stopped to say hello. With all the money in cash we just laid out, you would think he would stop and say hi. It just bothered me but I can say NOTHING bad about the quality of our flowers. They were PERFECT!!!!!!1

Pedestals made my wifes vision come to life with our center pieces. It was definitely a tough process from begining to end but the end product was amazing. The center pieces were the most stunning center pieces that I have seen and it was exactly what we wanted.

Pedestals provided us with AMAZINGLY beautiful flowers!! I haven't stopped hearing how gorgeous our centerpieces were! If you go with them, I doubt you'll be unsatisfied with the finished product. We had a few bumps in the road as far as service (they still surpassed other florists we spoke with...), but we were pleased overall with what they produced.

At first we looooooooooved our florist. He was great, understood us, has great taste and was super good with colors and ideas. I brought him my ideas and he worked with me all the way. Everything went very well. Until..... the day of! We agreed on 18 centerpieces BUT only 16 tables got them! 2 tables in the back corner were missing centerpieces. We played a game to see who won the centerpieces but of course, those 2 tables couldn't play because nothing was there except for a few candles!! In addition, half our ushers didn't have flowers! My bouquet was good, but could of been better. In the end, we just decided not to tip the florist to compensate for the missing pieces. I'm not sure if i would recommend them because on the outside, they seem perfect, but obviously they were a lot of mistakes that cost us our reputation

We dealt with Robert and overall we were very impressed with Pedestal’s service. Pedestals delivered on the floral arrangements-they were beautiful, fresh and very impressive. Unfortunately, building up to the wedding day, there were times when our calls/questions went unanswered and we needed to follow-up multiple times. Vendors need to realize that a bride and groom have so many different vendors to deal with and having to make multiple calls/requests to have things done is extremely time consuming and stressful. Again, on the wedding day, Pedestals pretty much delivered…the only thing they forgot was the LED tea candles on the stairs leading up to the reception and this was something that I really wanted! Also, they advertise an office in Manhattan, but it would be more convenient if they had more hours there!

I liked Pedistal, however, the professionalism in the office left something to be desired. We needed to make changes due to a death in the family, and since our wedding, at the time, was 7 months away, we were told by someone in the office that "Since our wedding is so far away, it's not that important."

Otherwise, their final quality was very good.

I was disappointed with the girls bouquets. Some of the flowers were dead and the day of the wedding there is nothing you can do about it. The centerpieces were beautiful and people are still talking about how gorgeous they were and how different they were. The pricing was pretty flexible but in my opinion I would not spend a lot of money on flowers.

At my initial consultation with Rob, we were blown away by his suggestions. Our colors were a little unusual (orange and pink) and his ideas were beautiful, unique and relatively well priced. I will also say that many of our guests commented on the beauty and abundance of flowers. They arrived on time and in good condition and the staff at Pedestals was generally professional and nice to work with. Now for my issues with them – they never mentioned the cake decorations at any point in our meetings with them. I realized this after meeting with our caterer and when I wanted to get some flowers on the cake after signing the contract, they gave me a hard time. Plus, they wanted and extra $100. I finally was able to get them to throw it in but I thought that was ridiculous. Also, my GM boutonnieres were not the right flowers. When they arrived the day of the wedding, I called to ask the problem and they told me that the flowers I wanted (small spray roses) arrived undeveloped and they returned them to the manufacturer. I told them I wished they had alerted me first and had given my judgment the final call. In hindsight, I also think that this could be a lie because I recall Rob trying to get me to have the flower (single, large rose) we wound up getting. I never wanted a big rose because I thought it looked too similar to my husband’s calla lily. Finally, I thought my bouquet, although beautiful, was too golden and not enough mango calla lilies like I agreed on.

The florist came under good recommendation from my caterer and other brides. Lo and behold my shock and dismay with the overall service PEDESTALS provided.
OK, so my centerpieces were beautiful. BUT *big but* I never got to see my bouquet even though I made an appointment to see it and went there. There has been so much miscommunication with my liaison Virgil it was stressful. Yes, the one thing that should have been cake walk was the most stressful. On my estimation sheet he wrote down that he would provide the wagon, not on the contract and have me a whole shpeel how we are not TOYS R US we are florists, then buddy why did you say you were going to provide a wagon for my baby (who happened to be the flower girl)?
When we saw the centerpieces there was a question about the height and asked him to call us if he could get any lower. Did not call, not even to reassure and ask us if that was ok.
Just no proper communication.
The only redeeming factor were the centerpieces and the WAGON we did provide. That is after I scoured the stores two days before the wedding and finally borrowed one from a relative that lives TWO STATES away.
Brides beware, make time in case of emergency and comb that contract good.

I chose these floral designers because they were just that, they are so much more than a florist. Their work is beautiful and elegant. I wanted something different and artistic for my wedding and settled on Pedestals.

The only things that disappointed me were when I wanted to make a subtle change to my centerpieces and isl runners to include more of a certain color flower I received much push back almost like it was a hassle to make this change. I was also told to go and buy my material myself for the base of the bouquets when this should have been complimentary and standard. Only until my wedding planner contacted them did they accommodate me. Also, they refused to deliver the bouquets to my house early in the morning since they "were closer to the catering hall." The bouquets turned out to be beautiful and the centerpieces were amazing but the service aspect was below par on the part of the individual who I worked with.

That is not to say all of their floral consultants are the same. At times I called for assistance and spoke to Vito who was very understanding and cooperative.

Flowers were beautiful but prior to wedding date, I had problems with one of the sales rep. She was pushy and didn't want to hear what I had to say unless I gave her a credit card #. We complained to someone and she apologized and seemed to be more pleasant. This florist had a good reputation and so therefore I stayed with them. My bouquet did not look according to how she described them to me prior to my wedding. The table displays were beautiful so I have mixed reviews for them.

well, my flowers were BEAUTIFUL. However, i had orchids ( i forget the name of them bt they start with a P) and they fell apart. They did not tell me that this would happen. I emailed my consultant a picture of how i wanted my cake decorated and my cake looked NOTHING like it. When i called pedestals after my wedding, I explained to them that i wanted a refund for my cake flowers and i wanted a bouqet to keepsake. that was 2weeks ago. I have yet to receive a phone call from them

Other than that, my flowers were beautiful and delivered on time.

I was very disappointed with my flowers at the wedding. Pedestals was highly recommended to us and initially they seemed helpful and professional. They fell short of what they promised us. First, the centerpieces were half the size of the sample they showed us at the store. The flowers for the church were small and not impressive. They were supposed to place fresh roses on the cake in a decorative fashion however, they did a terrible job.The cake looked like it was attacked by disorganized flowers. The person who was supposed to go to the catering hall to place the flowers on the cake did not show up. Instead some other person from Pedestals placed the flowers on the cake. The flower girls did not have the correct colored roses which was an eyesore. The maid of honor's bouquet was supposed to be larger than the bridal party bouquets but it wasn't. The groomsmen flowers were incorrect in number. We paid too much for such lousy service. My only regret was using Pedestals for my wedding. All of the other vendors were perfect. Save yourself the disappointment, go somewhere else.

I went with Pedestals because of how reputable they and positive feedback people gave me about them. I was dealing with Joseph the whole time and he knew which flowers to choose and assured me everything would be perfect and they would all look beautiful which I was not concerned about. Here is my wedding day the most important day of my life!!! I get back from the salon with my girls and notice that MY bouquet (the most important one) is WRONG!!!!!! This is 2 hours before we have to leave for the ceremony and I was so upset I didnt want this to ruin my wedding day!!! When I signed the contract and I still do have it and its all written down that my bouquet was suppose to have a Bling Wrap that they would provide!! I notice that my bouquet has an Ivory wrap!! My Dress is PURE WHITE!!! NOT IVORY!!! I was so mad that I called them and spoke to NADINE (I think that was her name) She basically called me a LIAR!! She said we do not provide the Bling wrap the customer does but we will see if we have it in stock and bring it right over!!! (The Bouquet was also not full like I saw in the show cases!!!) EXCUSE ME!!! It is on my contract and the only thing I said I was bringing was the memory photo of my father which was correct. 15 mins. later she showed up with a Bling wrap and wrapped my Ivory wrap with a Bling wrap on top it it. Maybe this happened because they had a 400 person wedding to set up for in Manhattan (the only reason why I know is beacuse I know who got married the same day as me elsewhere) Maybe they were more important than me and spent more money than me!!! Which should not be the case! I called Pedestals when I came back from my Honeymoon 3 weeks later and the Receptionist took my message about my issue, she apologized and said Joseph would call me and I never received a call to this day. My future SIL is using them in August and I hope she does not have the same problem as me!!

My wedding was a two-day event - with the first day being an Indian wedding ceremony, and the second day being a Catholic wedding ceremony at a church, followed by a reception at another venue.

I will start with the bad news first. The following is a list of my complaints for each day.
Day 1 (Indian Wedding Ceremony):
1. The centerpieces had roses, and I had specifically requested not to have roses, but instead calla lilies and orchids. The vases were supposed to be spray painted gold, as they were when I saw the mock centerpiece for my ceremony. This is not how they were executed; therefore, they did not match our other decor.
2. The Pedestals truck was parked in front of the venue entrance when we arrived, which was close to the start time of my ceremony and when the guests were arriving. This is not the first thing I would want my guests to see as they arrive at the venue.
3. We were to be provided with two bags of rose petals for use during the Indian ceremony. Since this was not provided, we had to pick apart the roses in the centerpieces to have enough petals.
4. We discussed the Mandap (structure under which a bride and groom have an Indian wedding ceremony) having deep red and gold fabric. There was no red fabric on the Mandap, but instead there was white, which we had specifically asked not to have for religious reasons.
5. We paid for an aisle runner, with tall, clear vases along the aisle and tulle hanging in between the vases. There was no aisle runner or tulle, and the vases were placed in a row next to the Mandap instead.

Day 2 (Catholic Wedding Ceremony/Reception):
1. My wedding ceremony began at 2:00 PM and Pedestals was supposed to be delivering floral decorations and a wagon for my flower girl (she was only 1 and not walking yet) to the church between 1pm and 1:30pm. They arrived 8 minutes prior to the ceremony. Not only was this a burden, as my guests had to see the hustle and bustle of setting up the ceremony decorations while they were sitting and waiting for the ceremony to start, but my ring bearers and flower girl had intended to practice with the wagon prior to the ceremony, but were unable to do so because of the late delivery. This caused much stress for the kids' parents.
2. I had requested pink and purple flowers for my hair, which were supposed to be placed on wires that could be inserted into my up-do. No flowers were provided for my hair. This is probably the most disappointing of my complaints, because a bride spends a great amount of time thinking about her wedding day look, and I was left to improvise, taking one of the groomsmen's boutonnieres and considering taking apart my bouquet to make this work.
3. My bouquet was not what I wanted. I did not want any white in my bouquet and specifically requested pink and purple flowers and not many (if any calla lilies). Instead, my bouquet was almost all calla lilies and mostly white.
4. The groomsmen boutonnieres were delivered to the hotel when I had specified that they should be delivered to the church instead, since only myself and the bridesmaids would be at the hotel. I had to instruct the delivery men what to do with the boutonnieres on the day of my wedding.

I was promised a typed list of all items being provided on each day at least two weeks before the wedding and never received it. I asked for this list several times in the months leading up to my wedding. I believe a lot of the above complaints could have been avoided if I was provided with an adequate list, and if Pedestals was not so ambiguous on what was being provided for the price being paid (e.g. providing clients with itemized lists/prices).

Now for the good news:
1. I worked with Robert throughout the process, and he was very friendly during our meetings.
2. Robert created a centerpiece preview for my reception on Day 2. We had three different types of centerpieces, and they were completely unique and spectacular - we were obviously trying to incorporate some fusion cultural elements into our reception, and Robert added Bells of Ireland flowers to the centerpieces in honor of my Irish-American now-husband, which I thought was a nice touch.
3. We had Pedestals do ceiling draping in our reception ballroom, and it turned out beautifully - with crystals, flowers and votives, which tied into our centerpieces.
4. I received many compliments from guests on our centerpieces the day of the wedding.

Despite the good news above, I can't wholeheartedly recommend Pedestals as a florist/decorator. The logistical challenges in getting in touch with them and working with them, as well as the uncertainty about what you will actually receive on the day of your wedding, might be too much of a risk if you want a stress-free wedding day. You will likely pay less for another florist as well, making the negatives outweigh the positives.

how bout one of the installers
telling us they usually get $1500 to hang these balls
and you only paid $500.
so what did he do, he threw away half the balls and did a pretty weak
job installing the balls he hung.

Although I was very pleased with my first consultation at Pedestals I was very disappointed with their service on my wedding day. I worked with Virgil on my flower design and I was pleased that he not only understood my vision but was also able to make some suggestions. However, although my contract clearly stated that the personal flowers were to be dropped off in my hotel at 12 noon and that the church was to be completely decorated no later than 2:30 for my 3pm ceremony the Pedestals staff completely failed to honor the timeline. Not only did my flowers arrive to the hotel 45 minutes late but they were late to church as well. I made a decision to not let anything upset me on my wedding day and I was happy that I did not find out about how late Pedestals was to arrive in church until after the fact. What upsets me the most is that although my flowers were dropped off at the hotel at 12:45 and the hotel was only 10 blocks away from the church, Pedestals did not arrive to the church until after 2:30 and was still in the church in jeans and sweatshirt in front of all my guests at 3pm when the ceremony was already supposed to be starting. THIS IS NOT ONLY COMPLETELY UNACCEPTABLE BUT UNFORGIVABLE. This should never have happened and there isn't a single acceptable excuse for it. In addition as per our contract ALL the flowers in the church were supposed to be white. Although the 2 altar pieces were white all the flowers that were supposed to line the pews were multicolored. Again, completely unacceptable. If screwing up the color of the flowers was not bad enough, the flowers weren't even attached to the pews but just thrown on top of the lantern that I had purchased to line the aisle.
As far as the flowers for the reception, I was pleased with the arrangements, however, at a cost of $350 per table I was expecting A LOT more flowers then a few stems of each kind that were actually on the table. I would not recommend them to anyone.

Ok, so I dealt with Robert, but I dealt with the receptionist more than him. Robert was very sweet, but I had to call Pedestals to remind them of my final appt and when I got there the sample was wrong. Robert was very nice and we went back to see the correct version, but on my day the final product was HALF the size of the sample. I didn't haggle hard, because I wanted to avoid this type of thing. I have picture proof and my warning is to all brides avoid Pedestals, as nice as they may be the proof is in the pudding.

The centerpieces we ordered were beautiful, they bouquets were ok, but unfortunately Pedestals did not deliver church flowers at all. So we had a church that was completely bare. They refunded us after repeatedly telling us we needed to provide proof that they did not deliver... When they checked their records finally apparently the drivers went to the wrong church. You can't make up for screwing up a wedding day. The moment is gone.

I dealt with Robert. He was always very sweet and accomodating in light of the recent economic instability. However, Pedestals is the WORST when it comes to returning calls or getting back to you on an urgent matter. Weeks could go by without a response from them- same with emails.

My ceremony flowers for church decorations came out beautifully BUT my bridal flowers (white phalaenopsis orchids) as well as the bridesmaids flowers were not what I was hoping for. The picture I provided Rob of what I wanted for my bridal bouquet was hardly anything like it. The bridesmaids bouquets were also not what he described to me.

Pedestals also did lighting for me at my reception hall- uplighting for 5 pillars that came to $800!! I was told I got ripped off.

My advice is to go to Pedestals for flowers ONLY if you must. But do your research first and INSIST on bouquet and centerpiece samples!! Their lack of responsiveness and professionalism was disappointing.

The bouqet's and centerpieces were beautiful. Having my wedding at the Westmount Country Club, we were given only 3 vendors to choose from in regards to our flowers. I thought great, less for me to research. I had looked at some images, reviewed their websites and decided to go with Pedestals Floral Decorators. They seemed to be more along the lines of what i had imagined.

From the very first meeting, i should've known that working with this vendor may be an issue. I came for my appointment and Marcella, a consultant for Pedestal's was with another couple. That was all fine however after 40 minutes or so of waiting, I felt like this was unprofessional. My mother and I had left work early to meet with her and it was getting late in the night. After sitting with her, I felt better. She had some great ideas and the color schemes she suggested were beautiful. However, i would have to say that I had a lot of difficulties in communicating with her. Emails would go unanswered for weeks sometimes even a month or two.

The ideas we discussed were beautiful but when it came down to logic, it didn't click...At the church, my guests were unable to get into their seats or go for communion because they were blocked with flowers and lace (the priest was not very happy about that!) My aisle runner, which i specifically told Marcella was longer than the normal was too short! Didn't even make it half way up the aisle....All you heard was a thug on the floor from the roll falling. I emailed her to confirm the length of the aisle, we spoke about it during two meetings and then again had it written on my contract, the aisle runner was of course still to short.

Even with some of the difficulties i had with working with Marcella and Pedestal's, i still emailed her after my wedding to thank her and to also let her know of some of the glitches that happened that day (No where as direct as above) and I received no feedback. I'm not really sure I would recommend Pedestals, maybe another consultant would have been a more positive experience?

Pedestals did a great job on my chuppah and lobby centerpiece. However, they showed me a sample of my reception table centerpieces several weeks before the wedding, which I loved, and on the day of the wedding they were HALF the size and the flowers were totally different (colors, not just different types). The same went for my personals in terms of colors. The colors were totally off from what we discussed and the photos we looked at together. It was like 2 teams made up my package and didn't communicate or see what the other was doing. I was so upset I had to ask my bridal attendant to cut flowers out of my bouquet before we started taking photos.
I emailed them after with photos of the reception centerpieces and sample centerpiece and asked for a partial refund since the difference was so drastic and they refused. I was completely disappointed with their lack of professionalism. I would not recommend this florist - overall, I felt duped.

I had an initially good relationship with Pedestals. My consultant Marcella was very attentive and sweet. However, as time went on, it was difficult to get timely responses from her. I'd call or email and TWO WEEKS would go by without a response. After several detailed meetings about my flower arrangements, 3 weeks before my wedding, I was informed that she was changing jobs within the company and would not be at my venue on the wedding day as promised. She assured me that the production manager would take care of everything.

On the wedding day, there were NUMEROUS mistakes.

For the ceremony decor, they misplaced 2 of my candle stands (they weren't even on the aisle!). My ushers had to move them and got candle wax spilled all over their tuxedos. For the actual aisle, they charged me double for the amount of petals I wanted (I provided them an exact photo). They only provided me ½ of the petals I had paid for. They decorated the gazebo incorrectly (the contract said square style and they did something totally different). They did not remove any of the stamen from the lilies in the bouquets (they stain and I had requested that they do so beforehand). My maid of honor had to spend an hour removing them. They did not provide the cymbidium orchids in my maid of honor's bouquet. They failed to provide ANY petals that were supposed to decorate the escort card table. My coordinator had to run around and take petals that were decorating the cocktail tables to make up for the lack of flowers on the escort table. Since all of the Pedestals staff were long gone when we all arrived and saw these problems, my coordinator was on the phone with them trying to resolve the issues. She was told by Rob and Teresa from Pedestals that they would send someone back to fix the problems. No one ever came back or called again.

After the wedding, I called several times to speak to the owner, Phil, regarding these issues. No one ever called me back. Finally, I sent an email listing my complaints. Phil finally did respond, however, I found his response to be unsatisfactory. He only took responsibility for the fact that my maid of honor's bouquet was not complete. For all the other points, he made an inaccurate excuse for each, and completely denied wrongdoing in most instances. He also blatantly lied and said that his staff stayed at the venue to fix the problems. It was BECAUSE his staff was long gone that we had all of these issues. No one was there to fix the problems. When I responded to all of Phil's excuses with my points, he refused to address them. All he said was "I have reviewed your contract and I feel there is nothing more I can do for you at this time." He only offered a small refund. I took it, however, I am grossly unhappy with their poor service and their complete and utter denial of almost everything that went wrong that day. And, the fact that he lied and said his staff stayed to resolve the problems is completely unprofessional and unacceptable. There were several vendors there that could refute this easily.

When we booked our flowers with them we talked to the salesmen Joseph S. He and my bride talk and he knew what she wanted and all was perfect. Fast forward to our final approval appointment we go and they tell us that Joseph is out for a personal reason which was lie number 1 because we found out a week prior that he had gone to flowers by Brian where he worked before and when confronted with said lie our new coordinator Steven said that's what management told him to say. The. When we looked at our center piece trial my wife didn't like the trial they had Steven said no problem what's wrong she said that she hates the hot pink flowers in it our theme was like a blush and muted colors he sent it back and they fixed it. Also we went over some of the other things that we didn't want in our wedding like rose pedals on the table which we got hot pink to make things worse also no purple in anything which we got. The day of the wedding everything was perfect from them until we got to the hall. All the flowers we had seen from the bouquets to the guys flowers was on point and perfect. Then we go to see our room and the center pieces were all wrong and the tables had hot pink rose pedals on them and look like typical long island wedding tacky. Needless to say we complained to them after the wedding and they're excuse was and I quote sorry for the one flower color being wrong it was due to mother nature. Which really passed us off because now they think we are idiots. They offered us a credit on further work by them. I would not recommend them to anyone they are going to do what ever they feel and you might not get what you asked for. Totally unprofessional and I'd used someone else for your wedding.

I would not recommend them. I paid a lot of money for the flowers for my wedding, and I felt that they did not do as they promised. They were 45 minutes late to drop off the bouquets and boutonnières . I called them three times that day to find out wht happened and each time they said they should be there within five minutes until it was 45 minutes later. Too many people handle the parties. At the hall, I had to tell the kids that they have working for them (that set up the flowers) that there were many holes or open spaces and the pieces didn't looks much like the picture we had agreed upon. They are very unorganized, which is why they swagged the church when we had discussed that it wasn't allowed... I don't want to sound terrible, but I would say lfor the amount of money that you spend on flowers there should be better service and quality!

Our expectations were high on our wedding day in anticipation of breath taking flower arrangements on our tables. We spent much time planning and designing how we wanted our wedding room to look and the ambiance we wanted to create for our guests. We were grossly disappointed. Nadia was our special event designer, and though she displayed complete confidence in understanding what we wanted, she did not deliver! We were missing major components of flowers on half of our tables, our centerpieces were missing flowers, we ordered extra votives and rose pedals to put on the tables...they lost the votives and they did not add any rose pedals. We bought extra floating votives for our arrangements...they were not added and it made the arrangements look very skimpy. We contracted for rose pedals and votives to be scattered around our placement table, there were no rose pedals or votives. We ordered flowers as a cake topper and for the side of the cake ... they did not send the flowers so we had no flowers and no cake topper for our cake. When we called the day after the event to address the problems with the manager, we were told we would hear back in a couple of days. The manager had the designer get back to us via email, with a pathetic offer to compensate us for their errors! Very unprofessional and very unacceptable. We will not recommend them to anyone and we will never use them again.

As we planned our wedding, my husband and I agreed that the floral arrangements should be an important part of our affair.
We felt that committing $20,000.00 for flowers would guarantee that our guests and we would enjoy the beauty that flowers bring to a gathering.
After interviewing several florists, we decided upon Pedestals in Garden City. Our representative was Rob, who is also one of the owners.
We were attracted to Rob, who catered to our every whim. Every request and suggestion was met with a confident “yes we can”.
We were especially impressed by the fact that he assured us he would be at the ceremony to personally direct his people on the day of the wedding.
Alas, what a difference a day makes.
The day of the wedding, arrangements and flowers were not provided as agreed and contracted. The centerpiece at the main entrance was a foot taller than the chandelier it was designed to be placed beneath. The six dozen engagement roses for my bridal suite were replaced with two dozen cheap white ones. The white dendrobium orchids and super white hydrangeas we ordered were replaced with green ones.
To cap it off, when we called Pedestals to request that Rob come out to correct these issues, we were told that he was on vacation in Aruba.
Our advice to anyone shopping for a florist is to steer clear of Pedestals.

I would never recommend this florist to anyone. I had 2 florists to choose from at my venue, this was one and I know now how big of a mistake it was to have hosed them... From day 1 up until my wedding day it was a total disaster. My bouquet as a bride was yellow and supposed to be ivory, bridesmaids bouquets fell apart all day long, centerpieces had "pink" in them, when NOTHING about my wedding was pink, NOR did we ever discuss pink as an option!! Mother of bride and groom flowers were so heavy they fell over on their wrists all day. Flower girl bouquet fell apart within first hour. I paid for bows on my pews in the church and apparently they must have forgotten them since they weren't on them. There was supposed to be ivory roses on my cake and petals around it, there were cheap balls of flowers thrown on my cake with nothing around it. And to top it ALL off, they were almost 3 hours late with a terrible excuse!!!!!!!!! I had no flowers for my photos, guys didnt get their flowers until 20 min before ceremony began. It was extremely frustrating on the day of to have had to deal with that! I would never ever refer anyone to this vendor. The fact that I was forced to use a specific florist is just as frustrating. This florist is super nice until you sign a contract, promises world and under delivers once they have you as a client. Then no return calls, no copies of contract, no replies on email etc... Typical sales people!!!!! I have a ton of friends and fam that want to consider my venue for their own wedding, and they're well aware not to use this florist. They all knew that this was the ONLY vendor I was beyond annoyed with on my wedding day... I was as clear as day when I explained what I wanted, pix from their own website and all. Yet I still had issues on the most important day of my life. 2 thumbs down!!

Let me just say that if you want peace of mind and great, professional customer service, do NOT, I repeat, do NOT, use Pedestals as your florist. Here is the list of things that went wrong when it came to my flowers:
1. Pre-wedding - My consultant called me two days before my wedding saying that they cannot provide MY bouquet that I requested. TWO DAYS BEFORE!! He said that they received the flowers but it wasn’t dyed in the right color and that it did not come out pretty. I tried to understand his reasoning as to why he couldn’t do anything about it even though he still had two days left, but it did not make sense. Instead, he offered me an alternative bouquet that best matched my color theme. Reluctantly, I agreed, considering I had so many other things to take care of.
2. Day of wedding – I was told by my consultant when we went in for our final meeting that ALL of my flowers will be at the reception site by 4:30pm (my ceremony started at 7pm). But that was not the case. The boutonnieres for my husband and his groomsmen as well as my centerpieces were no where to be found. So from 5pm until my ceremony, I was going crazy. I had my bridal attendant and family members calling Pedestals but of course they were closed. You have enough stress on the day of your wedding but to have this happen is ridiculous. My centerpieces and boutonnieres finally were delivered – at 8PM. Pedestals caused me such unnecessary stress on the day of my wedding that I could not possibly relax. This is UNACCEPTABLE.
3. Post wedding – My husband and I go to the Pedestals showroom the day after the wedding to get an explanation of what happened. I could not believe the things that happened in the manager’s office. The manager, if you want to call him that, threatened to call the police if I didn’t calm down and actually picked up the phone pretending to dial. He showed complete disrespect by not even talking to me and talking to my husband when I’m the one who was talking to him. He blamed my reception site for the late delivery saying that my reception site was the one who told them to re-deliver the centerpieces at 8pm. How bad business is that when my reception site had Pedestals listed as one of their preferred florists?! Just pass the buck to someone else… I had asked for a refund on my bouquet since it’s not what I wanted. After trying to convince me of how beautiful it was, he then offered me half the refund and he’ll let me keep it. Why in the world would I want to keep that?? This shocked him for some reason. He finally agreed to give me the full refund of the bouquet and then he takes my bouquet and opens a back door that led to the warehouse and literally chucks my bouquet to throw it out. I could not believe his unprofessionalism. But at this point, my husband and wanted to cut our losses short and just be done with them.
I hope reading my story helps you make your decision. I would never want another bride to experience what I went through. And that is why I would never recommend Pedestals to anyone.

Worst experience I have ever had. I recently used pedestals for my June wedding and warn any bride to be to go ANYWHERE else. My consultant never returned any of my calls, even after paying in full I did not receive a copy of my contract until I called requesting it. Upon getting that contract everything was wrong, down to the reception site! After calling to speak to a manager I was told none were on duty and they would call me back... my wedding was weeks ago and I'm still waiting for that call. Day of the wedding my bridal bouquet was wrong and the crew setting up was rude to me and my family. Again I warn all other brides to find any other florist as this was the only "vendor" headache I had planning my event.

I went less than a month before my wedding to view my sample centerpiece. When I saw it I was so upset- they had it in the wrong vase (which was thinner) and it just made the centerpiece look small and insignificant. I pointed this out to Robert, who I worked with throughout my time with pedestals, he told me that someone must have moved it out of the correct vase and that it was made in the right one, and moved it to the correct one. As soon as he moved the flowers into the correct vase the whole thing opened up and looked so much bigger. He ensured me that the correct vase would be used for my wedding. The day of my wedding the bouqets were beautiful, the decorations for my house were beautiful, and the church decorations were beautiful. I was brought into the reception room to view it before all my guests enetered and there were 13 centerpieces all in the wrong vase. When I returned from my honeymoon I called pedestals 3 times each time being ensured that Robert would call me back each time. It has been well over 2 weeks and not one call. Not a professional thing to do! Very dissappointed with this company.

I saw their work at the Jericho Terrace Bridal expo. I loved their sample. It was exactly what I wanted. So I booked an appointment with the guy I talked to there- I went back for the appointment and they sat me with someone else. She was not who I wanted to work with- well really long story short. we did put down a large deposit because their work was beautiful that we saw. I went back two months before the wedding to see the sample.

NOTHING_ABSOLUTELY NOTHING like what I had wanted. Then when I had to go over everything I did want. they proceed to tell me that "well that can't be done with your budget". So I then told them that I will have to find someone else that can do it. "you can't find a florest two months before your wedding" is what she told me. I walked out of their building in tears!

I then called another florest someone I really should have gone to from the beginning and not only did they do what I wanted with the budget I had they were so so nice.

Pedestals would not give me my deposit back and after fighting with them- my mother had to take over and they agreed on decorating the cocktail hour tables. My mother had to set everything up because I just couldn't talk to them.
They were so so horrible I beg anyone looking at them to please please go to someone else.
It is not worth your money or your precious time before the wedding to deal with them!!!

What a horrible experience I had with them. When we went for our centerpiece showing they were gorgeous. The day of the wedding we received a centerpiece that was half the size of what we payed for. When I spoke with the owner he repulsed by saying they looked nice. This place is a bunch of scam artists. DO NOT USE!

I would never recomend this florist to anyone. Please BEWARE, GO SOMEWHERE ELSE FOR YOUR FLOWERS. This company was supposed to arrive at 1:00 to deliver my flowers for a 2:30 wedding. I get a phone call from the delivery man who was not Christoper, who was the consultant I had been working with. He tells me that they cant fit under a bridge and are running an hour late. I told them that my wedding starts at 2:30! He then said he was going to put all of my flowers in a car and drive them over. The company was lying. I work at a restaurant that deals with Pedestals. They have never had a problem getting under a bridge before. Needless to say they arrived at my house at 2:35. We all were waiting outside to get into our limos. The company didn't even apologize for being late. Christopher our consultant was no where to be found. Then, I get to the church very late and the ribbon I wanted on the railing wasn't even on the railing. I paid extra for the ribbon. When I called to complain later on they said oops we forgot because we were running late. So I am walking into the church and I look at my alter flowers. They left a napkin on my flowers. For a good 10 minutes of the ceremony I thought it was a dunkin donuts napkin. But, as I looked closer it said North Ritz Club. I was furious!!!! I paid alot of money for my flowers and was not at all happy with the flowers. Then, later on in our celebration one of my guests came up to me and said the pew flowers popped off. So, In the middle of my ceremony the flowers that were on the pew exploded and went everywhere. Luckily, when we got to the reception all of the flowers centerpieces were gorgeous!! If you would like to see pictures of my church flowers with the napkin on it please do not hesitate to email me. I will be happy to show you what type of business this company runs. HORRIBLE COMPANY PLEASE BEWARE!!!!!!!!

I was extremely unhappy with their services. We had a contract with them for my ceremony and reception. We discussed the details of how I wanted the decor at both location. I was assured that their would be no problem with either location because they have worked their before. I paid for them to set up six pillars of flowers to be at both the ceremony and the reception. In both location I only saw two and was very unhappy being that I paid for six. When I called to find out what happed to my other four pillars, I was told that the church said they were in the way and moved them. But the church and my coordinator for pedestals assured me it would not be a problem. So when I mentioned this to pedestals then informed me the church moved the arrangements and get this the church also told them not to take the four arrangements because they were donations!!! I never arranged for any of this. I asked to speak to the owner and he was not anymore helpful. DO NOT USE THEM, THEY SUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I would NEVER use them again. They promise you one thing and deliver another. I paid a lot of money for my flowers, more than I should have. They showed me an ellaborate sample piece a week before my wedding. It was beautiful. Come my wedding day, nothing looked like my sample piece. It was soooo flimsy and not worth the $6,000 I paid. There was gaps in between my flowers The flowers I wanted were not even in the centerpieces. I hate talking about it, because it was very dissapointing and upsetting. After my wedding I went to the showroom and took my pictures to complain. Never again have I heard from them even after numerous phone call attempts. What a joke!!!
I see a lot of good reviews, but do not understand why. If I show you my sample pics and my actual centerpiece you would understand why I was very upset. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND.. There showroom looks better than there work because they want to pull in customers. After your event, what can you do... the damage has already been done and they got there money.

Pedestals did a horrible job at my wedding. You can not trust the people at Pedestals. I went with them because of the quality of flower and the design and price. They told me to relax and let them take care of my wedding but on my wedding, they did not deliver at all and they broke the contract and gave me 8 less roses per centerpiece and that amounts to a lot of roses. I paid for 3 dozens per table and they only gave me 26-28 per table. They decorated my cake horrible and it does not even look like what we talked about and I gave them a picture. They were supposed to put petals in the tulles in the church decoration and they did not do that either. Nonetheless, we still had a beautiful wedding because of the friends and families who celebrated with us. Pedestals was the only business I have ever dealt with that take my money and did not deliver. We are still suing them for breaching the contract. You do not want this headache, do yourself a favor, stay away from them!
