We chose MP&FE for our wedding day floral arrangements/bouquets after searching local florists in the area. We were married on 2/22/14, and Elyse took care of us like NO OTHER. I would wholeheartedly recommend this vendor for wedding needs.
During our search for flower vendors, we came across a lot of negative experiences due to the seemingly strange requests we had for bouquets, as well as our budget. We finally went in to meet with Elyse at the Metropolitan Plant & Flower Exchange, and she calmed our nerves and worked amazingly with us to create our vision right away. Elyse was extremely responsive by e-mail or phone when needed, and made sure everything was perfect for the day of. She even reassured us that our vision was far from "strange" and she could do it with no problems.
The wedding day came, and the flowers were delivered with no issues. I even got a letter from Elyse congratulating us as well as explaining that she created two bouquets for me due to the lack of a certain flower (due to extended winter). She completely amazed us with her attention to detail, as well as her clear determination to ensure we had am amazing day with no hiccups.
I 100% recommend this vendor for wedding flowers, and will be using them for any floral needs in the future.
Thank you thank you thank you!
I was absolutely thrilled with our wedding flowers! After meeting with a smaller florist, I am so happy I went with (larger) Metropolitan. I worked with Elyse, who immediately knew what I was looking for in terms of my 'vision' for the look and feel. Initially, we were way outside of our budget but she was able to make adjustments to come within our range and I couldn't have been happier with how everything came out. The centerpieces and bouquets were quite simply, stunning. I couldn't have asked for a better experience and recommend them to anyone.
The flowers were beautiful and the price was very affordable. Good chice
Vanessa at Metropolitan Flower Exchange did an amazing job with the flowers for my wedding. I loved the bouquets and arrangements when we went in to see the samples, but they were even more beautiful on the day of. I couldn't have asked for anything better! Vanessa was very easy to work with and very flexible with any changes I had throughout the process. The flowers not only were beautiful, but were so fresh that everyone who took a centerpiece home was able to enjoy them for a long time. When working with a florist, I would look at wholesale websites for vases or extras as they can be found much less expensive online, but I can't complain about anything regarding my experience with Metropolitan Flower Exchange. I definitely recommend them!
The second I met Vanessa, I felt like I knew her forever! She was so easy to work with and executed all of my ideas perfectly. She is so creative and is very good at her job. The flowers looked absolutely amazing and I am still getting compliments on them today. I was a little worried about going over budget since I had 30 tables so Vanessa came up with such a cute budget friendly idea where we did half of the tables with flower centerpieces and the other half with floating candles. Everything looked gorgeous! I would highly recommend using them for your wedding!
I used Metropolitan House of Flowers for my wedding on October 11, 2014. I worked with Vanessa and all I can say is I am beyond happy with all of my flowers. All of the flowers were exactly what we had chosen and our centerpieces at our reception were just like the sample that Vanessa has put together for us. she was extremely helpful with choosing flowers and making recommendations. I live in Staten Island and my reception wAs in Nj.Delivery to all locations was on time and all of our flowers arrived neat and organized with labels for people. I would definitely use them again for any event.
I had the absolute best experience working with Metro for my wedding in August. This was the one aspect that I was never stressing out about and that is all thanks to Vanessa. She is awesome to work with, friendly, accommodating, and upfront with all costs. I made a few changes along the way with no problems and she always got back to me quickly. I was having my wedding in South Jersey and they had no problem delivering everything down there. The day of my wedding, all of my bouquets and reception arrangements arrived on time and were set up just how I wanted. Everything looked more beautiful than I had envisioned. I highly recommend this vendor for all of your flower needs. I will definitely be using them in the future.
Vanessa was absolutely great to work with! From the beginning, she knew exactly what i was looking for and was able to create it perfectly for the trial. Vanessa was always easy to reach through email and was able to quickly make any changes needed. When I got the flowers on the day of my wedding they were even more incredible. My bouquet was more than i could have ever dreamed of. Everything was perfect! I would recommend them to anyone!
I was very happy with Metropolitan. I worked with Elyse and she really understood what I wanted and definitely delivered it perfectly. The centerpieces were beautiful!! I also loved my bouquet, as well as my bridesmaids bouquets. Everything was delivered on time and in perfect condition. I would definitely recommend Metropolitan and Elyse!! I will be using them for all my future celebrations :)
I sat with a floral expert for 2 hours making decisions about every flower at the wedding. She was patient and helpful. She gave suggestions for how to save money. The flowers were elegant and everything that we discussed was delivered to our venue.
Elyse at Metropolitan Plant and Flower Exchange was everything we could have hoped for in a flower vendor. She was able to give us competitive prices, of course, but beyond that she was a total expert and knew what we wanted and needed before we were aware of it. She was able to answer all of our questions, and she used her artistic flair to make our flowers memorable and elegant. My mother was very insistent on a certain type of bridal bouquet, and Elyse was able to take her ideas and make them real.
Elyse was always flexible and accommodating, and was able to change things even to the last minute. It's clear that she loves flowers, and it was a pleasure working with this company. :-)
We met with Elyse at Metro and after she got an idea of what we wanted we went back a few weeks later to see samples. We played with the samples until it was exactly what we wanted. The day of the wedding, the flowers were exactly how the samples were! They looked amazing and EVERYONE loved them. Great job!
Elyse was awesome to work with and did everything to stay within our budget for our table arrangements.
Yumila at Metropolitan did such an amazing job on my wedding flowers! She is so sweet and helpful and has an amazing eye for making flower arrangements look incredible. I had a couple of changes to my centerpieces and Yumila was able to roll with it and make any adjustments that I wanted. She is also open ti thinking outside the box, I wanted artichokes in my centerpices and she allowed me to supply my own to save a little money.
My wedding was the week of Hurricane Sandy and even though the usual Metropolitan wedding location lost power they were able to move to another location tp make all my flower arrangments.
Everything turned out so beautifully and I would highly recommend Yumila!
Elyse did such an amazing job! The second I walked in to our meeting where she put some samples together I almost started crying. They were more beautiful than I could imagine! My flowers were gorgeous and fresh and the price was in our budget too! Everything was perfect! We recommend!
My flowers were beautiful!! They lasted the entire day and were stunning!! Angela did such a great job on everything!!
Elyse at the Metropolitan Plant and Flower Exchange in Saddlebrook was wonderful! She got our vision perfectly and was able to work within our budget and still give us everything that made it all work! She was pleasant and answered all of our questions. The day of our wedding, my breath was taken away with my bouquet, church flowers, and centerpieces. Everything was perfect! Thanks so much, Elyse!
I used this Florist located in Saddle Brook & worked with a lady who was amazing. She has been doing this for over 15 yrs & did all the demo for me right on the spot. Her arrangements & ideas are so beautiful. So glad to have been able to use this florist for my wedding as the flowers came out beautiful & i got wonderful compliments.
After meeting with multiple florists, and being completely disappointed at the lack of professionalistm and what I thought was exceedingly high prices, I was at my wit's end.
One day, I happened to stop by Metropolitan Plant and Flower Exchange to pick up some flowers for Valentine's Day. I happened to notice a small sign that said "we do weddings". I quickly made an appointment for the following week.
The level of professionalism from the get-go was night and day different from other florists I had met with. Jenny was fabulous - she knows her flowers - and made recommendations on some flowers that really completed the arrangements.
The pricing was very competitive and reasonable, compared to the other florists that I had met with. We got more arrangements, and larger arrangements than we had planned on and still were under budget.
Our flowers were absolutely stunning on our wedding day.
We don't get any plants or flowers from any other store now and we don't even live in the area. Metropolitan Plant and Flower Exchange is worth the drive for us.
I used metropolitan for my June wedding. The flowers truly made the entire night a fairy tale come true. I worked with Vanessa at metropolitan and she was so helpful in selecting the perfect combination of flowers to match my style. The centerpieces were above and beyond what I expected. Vanessa really made sure everything was perfect for my special day.
