All of my flowers were done by me, but the flowers I wanted on my wedding cake. I wanted real Star Gazer Lilies. My mom went a week before and they tried to tell her that they were out of season and it would be hard to get them. I've worked in the floral industry and they guy was full of it. They are available pretty much all times of the year. Especially in July. Anyways, they charged my mom a hundred dollars for ten stems!!! That's outrageous. Especially since they didn't have to arrange them. And on the day before the wedding when we picked them up, none of the flowers had bloomed!! They had been cut too early!! So we had to put them with harsh artificial light to get them to bloom and then out of the ten stems we barely had enough to put on the cake. I don't think I will use them again.
I was very pleased with Petal Pushers. Not only were the flowers almost exactly what I wanted, but the florist herself delivered them (not a delivery boy). She stuck around until she was sure I was satisfied with everything - even making a last minute adjustment to my bouquet when I commented that the stems were longer than I had hoped for.
Very flexible, and very easy to work with. 5 stars all around!
