Navlet's Fine Flowers
Navlet's was a great value for my flowers. They have a floral shop where they will do bouquets and centerpieces for you. They also have a wholesale floral shop, which is where I purchased my flowers. Manny runs the wholesale side and was a great help. I told him my colors and what main flower I wanted and asked him what other flowers I should use. He walked me through the freezer and showed me different types of flowers that would go well. He also showed me greenery that would compliment my flowers in the cascading bouquet I wanted. I told him how many attendant bouquets I needed, as well as how many boutienniers and mothers' corsages I needed, and he knew exactly how many bunches of each type of flowers I would need. I picked them up the day before the wedding and then put together the bouquets, etc myself.
Navlets provided me with the most beautiful BLUE roses I've ever seen. BUT! we decided to do the flowers ourselves, and had ordered them in bulk from Navlets, to be picked up the wed night before my saturday wedding. The didn't arrive until FRIDAY MORNING! my family was freaking out, my friends all had blue stained hands from working overtime on friday trying to get everything done. And the flowers that came friday morning were not complete, navlets was willing to substitute the part of my order that had not yet come in for other flowers they had in the shop, but no discounts, nothing. they actually weren't even nice. they never once apologized for the flowers being late, insisting that the arrival date was an "estimate". it was very stressful. and since we didn't get all the flowers we ordered, there was a small refund that took a MONTH to get back from them.
We came to Navlet's two weeks before our wedding (in the off-season) and they did a wonderful job. I didn't really know what I wanted, so I told Robin a number, gave her some colors, and she did the rest. The flowers were beautiful, and we weren't given a sales pitch to buy more. At the same time, she helped to select within our budget when we didn't have specifics in mind, and was very patient. Highly recommended.
