Blooms and Bouquets
Perfect florist. Melissa was so great at communication with me through email in the months leading up to the wedding, as I came from out of town for my wedding day. She did everything I envisioned - and so much more. Great service, quality, and attention to every detail.
I cannot say enough good things about Melissa and her crew! I live in Kansas City, so most of our consults were via email after 1 face-to-face meeting. I know absolutely nothing about flowers, but she gave so many amazing ideas, had a million pictures of the varieties, and helped me find the right look. Even after changing colors and styles probably 5 times, Melissa was always friendly and quick to respond to my questions. She also did the decorations at our venue- a service we didn't know she offered- and those were all gorgeous, too. My husband and I returned to our wedding site on our anniversary, and Blooms and Bouquets were setting up another wedding there that night, and once again everything was stunning. Oh- and did I mention how reasonable her prices are? What an amazingly talented crew.
We chose Melissa at Blooms n' Bouquets after a recommendation from a friend. After meeting with her for the first time I knew I could trust her to do a great job. She was incredibly organized which was necessary for a bride that changes her mind a lot or just can't decide at all! She was very good about responding to emails about the questions and changes I had. Every time we changed something, she made it very clear what we were adding and how much it would cost. Our contract was very specific so we knew exactly what we were getting. I provided pictures for Melissa about what I wanted some of the flower arrangements to look like, and she included those in the contract.
I didn't give full 5's because the day of the wedding the altar flowers were not what I wanted. Part of this was because one flower in the arrangement was not in full bloom so it looked very different. Also, the altar flowers were not in the vases I thought was had decided on. We immediately talked to Melissa and she brought us new vases. She also asked me what changes I'd like to make to the arrangements. It was stressful, but she did a great job being flexible and taking the time to get what I wanted. I had light pink and dark pink flowers, and the light pink was a lot lighter than we decided on, but I do know she doesn't have control on how the flower color turns out. She talked with us in detail about how the flowers that grow every year can turn out a little differently. I was bummed about the color, but I understood. All other bouquets, boutennieres, corsages, and bows were great.
Melissa worked with us a lot on pricing. We ended up cutting comee things such as baby's breath, and greenery on the boutennieres and corsages to get the cost down a little. We also switched from pew flowers to pew bows, which I actually liked a lot more.
Blooms n' Bouquets was a good choice, and we alos got floating candles from them for a good price.
Love this Florist, Loved my Flowers - would recommend to everyone and anyone. Good prices and great ideas, if you have a concept but no idea exactly what you want, they are the people to go see!
Blooms and Bouquets does an amazing job with their flower arrangements. And they work with you to ensure that you stay within budget. While a bit pricier than the supermarket, the flowers we got were in perfect bloom and beautiful. We were very happy with all the flowers.
Melissa was great to work with! She was very professional and organized. She had no issues with me wanting a smaller budget and was very friendly toward what I wanted. I would recommend her and her staff any day, they are great professionals!!!
I am so happy with the florist that we chose! Melissa and her crew are amazing to work with and full of great ideas. She came highly recommended by two people to me and I now know why. Her prices cannot be beat and her ideas and style are amazing!
Excellent staff - very talented and professional. The flowers were gorgeous and we were able to get exactly what we wanted for the price we needed.
We have worked with Melissa and her staff at Blooms n Bouquets on numerous weddings and have always been very impressed by the final product. Our brides always LOVE their flowers and decor, and we hear about while filming them all day. Their professionalism is outstanding and we highly recommend them to all of our couples! :)
The staff at Blooms and Bouquets do stunning work. They have mastered the modern floral style. They are very easy to work with, flexible and approachable. They listen to their clients and customer service is important to them.
We will take the time to listen to your ideas, evaluate your needs and work with you to create your vision, one that will truly embody the statement you want to make. Your experience will begin with a relaxed meeting with one of our designers to discuss your style and preferences.
Our team will then develop multiple floral designs based on your tastes and dreams. After you have selected the perfect design for you, the Blooms and Bouquets team will create one-of-a-kind, signature impressions that will stay with you and your guests long after the wedding has passed!
Avoid getting married around Christmas, Mother’s Day and Valentine’s Day, as flowers are at their most expensive during these holidays.
Use less expensive flowers. You might be surprised how stunning a vase of carnations, spider mums, baby’s breath or roses will look clustered close together without greenery.
Buy flowers that are in season and in addition, buy in bulk and order early! At Blooms and Bouquets, when quantity allows us to order at a better price, we always pass those savings on to you.
A good florist will have years of expertise, so use that to your advantage. Share your ideas and always be clear on what flowers you absolutely don’t want, working closely with them to see what will work best with your budget. We at Blooms and Bouquets feel that this process is so important that we actually meet with you twice: Once to discuss the look of your wedding, colors and budget and a second time to show you the ideas we have generated specifically for you.
Experiment at low costs! Incorporate fresh fruit or vegetables to fill vases. Think apples, artichokes or limes. Check out our website to see some of these ideas brought to life.
Pick where to splurge. If you are set on an expensive flower, put it in the bride’s bouquet and the groom’s boutonniere to make them extra special. For decorations with that favorite flower, think simple. A single exotic bloom floating in a vase with some lily grass will be very striking on the guests’ tables.
Since the decorations at the front of the site will be only be seen from a distance, use cheaper and larger flowers. Afterwards, they can be transported to the reception site. However, be aware that many vases typically used in these areas are large and expensive to replace if broken. Blooms and Bouquets offers a transfer service so you don’t have to worry about this possibility. We will show up dressed in formal attire and will smoothly make the switch from the ceremony to the reception. We also offer a tear-down service for both sites.
Planning on arranging your own flowers? This is a great way to save if you feel confident in your designing abilities. Always be sure to get your flowers from a source that you trust. In particular, be cautious when ordering online. If your order comes in wrong or the flowers are poor quality, there may be no time to correct it. A florist has the capability to properly store flowers several days in advance, and if there is a mistake, they will have the means necessary to correct it before your big day. Blooms and Bouquets offers everything from bulk flower orders to vase rentals, to floral lessons in advance of your wedding.
