Well, right away I was impressed with the Flower Guys based off their incredible prices, and the ability to have a walk-in consultation. However, after that 2 of my meetings that I showed up for, Lynn did not, so they were rescheduled. Then, the day of my wedding, apparently Lynn was out with a family emergency and nobody could decipher the chicken scratch notes-- so my flowers were completely wrong. I was supposed to have a red rose and calla lily bouquet, and my bridesmaids have white roses. Well, every bouquet was the same-- with white roses and red roses. The flower guys is a good place if you just want cheap flowers, but don't expect your things to be correct.

Luckily, I realize the flowers are the least important part of my wedding day or I would have been very displeased.

DO NOT USE. Cheap prices are because they buy the garbage and junky old flowers that wholesalers try to get rid of. They buy what should be thrown away! Would not recommend. Would say any good reviews have been planted by someone on their staff. Friend of mine worked for them, and knows. they can't count, no business experience, can't match colors. The owner is a crook and shyster. Can't tell time, druggies, and lo lifes who can't get a job anywhere else. BEWARE

The price was good! We paid $300 for all of our flowers and assembled them ourselves. We were under the impression we were getting purple and green roses. We ended up getting pink and yellow roses. She tried to tell us they were purple and green. All four of us that picked them up agreed they were pink and yellow. She did give us spray paint to spray the pink ones to look purple. That actually worked out well. Still a little stressful. Also, the place smells like smoke and is kind of ghetto. It's an old gas station. She also writes the order in a notebook and it's good I called to verify the flowers two weeks before because she had some of the wrong ones. Also she never gave us a demonstration on how to start putting the flowers together like she said she would. Actually another less experiences lady was there when we picked them up who didn't know how. Overall, not impressed but we also didn't pay $1000 for flowers.

The Flower Guys exceeded our expectations! A florest from Costco recommended The Flower Guys, but warned us that they are not your typical florest. Lynn was great to work with and gave us the most beautiful boquets at a very reasonable price! The wedding guests commented on how beautiful the flowers were and they were still perky the next week. My daughter found her dream boquet in a bridal magazine and it was duplicated perfectly for her special day. I had read some unflattering reviews, so was a bit leary, however they gave us beautiful flowers, and they arrived an hour before they needed to be there. What a great surprise. I highly recommend The Flower Guys and will certainly use them in the future!

I have waiting over two months to put up a review from our wedding in hopes that we would get the refund we were promised. We are still waiting for that......I gave up contacting Jose. Every time I called he was "sick", and when I would go to the store to pick up a refund check he just happened to be gone.

As far as flowers on our wedding day, they were beautiful. My bouquet was amazing, and our center pieces were one of a kind for sure. Many compliments on the flowers, and I loved them as well.
We also used the flower guys for our cake and ceiling drapery for our big day. I do not recommend this! They are great at flowers..... Our reception site saved the day by calling someone else in to do the ceiling drapery after a poor job was done by the flower guys. As far as our cakes....it was nothing we asked for. It ended up looking fine, but I asked for a tired wedding cake with orchids and received five small round separate cakes. He was also supposed to make a grooms cake.....we never saw that. Needless to say we are still waiting to get our money back for the ceiling drapery and grooms cake. I guess we're out of luck on that one.....

Overall, just have them do flowers. Be prepared for your file to be missing, and for them to show up late for delivery.

The quick and easy version of my review is that if you are a laid-back person and have no ideas of your own on what you want for flowers, Jose will be sure that you have a TON of beautiful flowers at a great price. If you have even a few flower preferences or will get stressed out by a perennially-tardy florist on your special day, find a different florist.

The long story: We got married on Saturday, October 16th. After hearing good things by word-of-mouth, I was willing to overlook the negative reviews that I read online and the fact that he was an hour and a half late to our first meeting. I still had reservations, though, and because of that we got Jose to agree to terms that left 25% due when flowers were delivered to the sites. For $1000 he promised us 10 flower buckets hanging on the aisles, a decorated arch in the front of the church with an altar arrangement, 4 bridesmaid bouquets, a bridal bouquet, all of the corsages (wrist corsages for the moms, normal corsages for the grandmas) and boutonnieres, 3 arrangements for the reception site, a tossing bouquet and a kissing ball for the flower girl. I wanted bold fall colors, focusing on brown and rust-orange, and requested that the only white in my bouquet be the hypernicum berries he recommended. After 2 trial bridesmaid bouquets we were content, but looking at substituting half of the flowers in them for the ones that I wanted.

I felt good about the situation after being involved in conversations with him both that Friday night and Saturday morning about some small changes he was making. At 10am Saturday morning, 4 hours before everything was supposed to be set up, it sounded like everything was going great.

On top of being 2 hours late and supposedly getting lost 10 miles from the church, which threw off our time for pictures and created complete chaos, everything was wrong. I will say that the flowers were beautiful - plentiful and beautiful - but not what we had discussed and NOT what I wanted.

To start, there were only 2 flower buckets for the aisles instead of 10, and they were hideous (we took them down). There was no arch and no altar arrangement, but at least 6 giant arrangements set up at the front of the church. Unfortunately, instead of the eggplant purple calla lillies and rust gerber daisies in the arrangements, the flowers were lavendar and light orange. Thank God my bridesmaids wore brown so it didn't completely clash, but they were very, very wrong. The kissing ball that we were told would be made out of miniature roses was primarily a great big ball of ferns (by the way, I wanted as little greenery as possible) with some roses sticking out of it, and it was almost bigger than our flower girl. It certainly weighed more than she did. We had to scrap it and send her down the aisle with a couple of flowers picked out of it. There were no wrist corsages. The bridesmaid bouquets had none of my rust gerbers, but were full of bright, bright orange gerbers, which I had explicitly stated that I hated. Finally, my bridal bouquet was centered around white lillies. It looked lovely, but it was absolutely against everything we discussed.

If all of that wasn't bad enough, when we got to the reception there was no tossing bouquet. A friend used some of the silk flowers from the centerpieces we made ourselves and grabbed some out of one of the bridesmaid bouquets to make up a quick, last-minute bouquet to throw.

Finally, when my mom called him after the wedding to discuss the final payment and register her disgust, Jose started screaming at her about "people like you" and hung up on her, before she could even tell him everything that was wrong. I would still like to have a reasonable conversation with him about it, but I couldn't have been much more disappointed.
