They have been amazing from my sisters Bridal Shower June 6,2010, her Wedding on August 7, 2010 to my Bridal Shower June 24, 2012 and Wedding August 31, 2012 and now my sisters Baby Shower June 8, 2014 we have received nothing but the most impeccable service and the best quality in flowers! Robert and Nicole Versaggi are fantastic, they helped us execute complete perfection that not only stunned us but left our guests for all occasions blown away! Nicole worked with me diligently for my sisters baby shower and every decorative detail was executed flawlessly. We will always remain loyal Pedestals clients and HIGHLY recommend them to anyone looking for the ultimate experience in not just floral décor but in complete room transformations from start to finish. THANK YOU!!!!
I used Pedestals from a recommendation, and boy am I happy I did. Virgil is amazing, we discussed what I wanted, then we worked out how to get that look within my budget, never sacrificing quality. Day of, the flowers were fresh, beautiful, and lasted throughout the night, not one wilt! I absolutely got my moneys worth, and I highly recommend any NY bride to skip the Manhattan cost and commute and get the same quality and style from Pedestals. Ask for Virgil, that man is a wizard with design.
Absolutely amazing. Robert took great care of us and our flowers were gorgeous. The center pieces he created were divine. The flowers were so fresh it took 3 weeks to dry out my bouquet!
I worked with Nadia and Phil for my wedding day on 9/27/14. Both Nadia, Phil and the entire team and Pedestals are phenomenal! They helped me so much with what I wanted and my vision. They brought some amazing ideas to my dias design and all of my arrangements. They are awesome to work with, professional, always available to chat with on any concerns you may have and on time on your wedding day. I was so happy I chose them as my flower vendor and will be using them for any other occasion I may have.
I met Pedestals Flowers at a Bridal Show in Garden City NY and immediately like their work and made an appointment to meet with a consultant. My appointment was schedule for 3PM and got there 10 minutes earlier than expected however didn't think I would have to wait over 20 minutes for someone meet with me which I was the only person there for an appointment and about 3-4 consultants doing nothing but joking around. I knew off the bat what I wanted and pictures of what I wanted so I know it would have been a quick visit however the service was just horrible and I felt like the consultant was not listening to anything I was saying and just wanted to get me out of there although I was only there with him for about 15mins tops. With my experience I will never recommend this company to anyone because of the service. I love the work they do however customer service is the most important to me. I found a lot other flower places who treat you like royalty.
First off I would like to apologize on behalf of Pedestals Floral Decorators. We pride ourselves on customer service and satisfaction. I did look back through our records for your wedding date and I did not see any estimates or appointments scheduled...
Robert was amazing. From the moment I met him I knew he was the florist I would use. He was so nice, personable and easy going, and made me feel so comfortable even though I had no idea what I wanted in regards to flowers. He was patient with me the entire time, and really helped me figure out what I liked. My bouquet was GORGEOUS (and I'm not even really a flower girl!) and the centerpieces were beyond beautiful. He really was able to take what he knew about my likes and dislikes and create the perfect arrangements for me!!
Robert is a rockstar! He and the rest of the Pedestals staff are the best in the business. My wedding flowers were not only glamorous but every detail was beyond perfection!!! Robert knew EXACTLY what I was looking for and was such a great person to work with. They are the best floral event vendor hands down!
Beautiful work. Peace of mind that everything would be gorgeous because they really are the BEST at what they do. However, I do feel like they are overpriced.
The flowers were pretty what i wanted, they are expensive but I think worth it
We worked with Steven Polizzi who was absolutely wonderful. He turned our dream vision into a reality. Steven even came to our rescue last minute in helping us design our arbor and turned it into an extremely beautiful romantic scene for our ceremony. Pedestals will ensure that your flowers and decor will be of the highest quality. Presentation was perfect and everything exceeded our expectations..You will not be disappointed.
I absolutely LOVE this company. We worked with Virgil on our wedding flowers and they were amazing. He was fantastic. He really understood what I wanted and even made us a sample centerpiece to come back and view. On the day they arrived on time to my house and done a fantastic job at the venue. I highly recommend this company.
Working with Phil on floral design, the room's decor, linens and lighting was absolutely fabulous! His vision, creativity and experience helped to ensure the ceremony area and reception's ballroom were perfectly appointed. Working with Phil was fun and pleasurable. His professionalism and perfectionism truly showed in the results of the decor.
Pedestals did an amazing job for my wedding. I had my centerpieces, church pieces, hall pieces and bridesmaids bouquets made by them. Each piece was perfect and beyond what I had expected. The staff was professional and put my needs first. They offer a wide variety of selections and are willing to try whatever you like . Their work was outstanding
Our initial meeting with our consultant and the plans and mock-ups he made went wonderfully. We were pleased with the price and the quality of what we were promised. However, about 2 weeks before the event our consultant stopped working there - somtheing the company never told us but which was discovered fortuitously. However, this prevented us from being able to discuss last minute details with the person we had been dealing with for months, and were just promised everything would be as expected.
Unfortunately, everything was NOT as promised. We were told we would have the chuppah covered in flowers - insteand, it was merely a presentable facade on top, with sufficient but skimpy flowers running up the support poles. There was a staircase that was going to be encased in several streams of flowers; instead, there was one garland wraped around the banister. The basket for the flower girl was unsuable; it was too small and filled with other items that prevented us from placing any petals in it; we were forced to improvise and we came up with a basket of our own that we decorated ourselves. Finally, the table settings, while pretty, were less filled than was shown to us, and some colors were different than what we agreed to. Furthermore, there seemed to be no one in charge and no one who really appeared to be accountable for questions and problems.
The flowers were suficient enough that the glorious mood of the event was not diminished, and no one but the immediate family was aware of any of the shortcomings mentioned above; however, what we agreed to and paid for was not delivered in full, and it left us feeling slightly taken advantage of. Just something to keep in mond if you choose this vendor.
My flowers on my wedding day were so beautiful and perfect. They were just what I pictured they would look like. Virgil helped me at Pedestals and he was so great! My centerpieces were the three pillars with floating candles and LED lights that I gave to them to put in the pillars. Flowers also surrounded the pillars and they were breath taking. My bouquet was gorgeous and they used part of my mom's wedding dress to wrap my bouquet in. My bridesmaids, maid of honor and flower girl flowers looked amazing as well as the mother's flowers, father's flowers, and groomsmen. I would definitely recommend Pedestals!
Nadia was the consultant for my wedding and she's a pleasure to work with! She tried to be as helpful as possible and made the process fun. She's also very good with replying to emails. They are pricey but they do a beautiful job the day of. My bouquet was stunning - it was slightly different then we had spoken about but still beautiful and unique. My centerpieces were airy and made the room gorgeous. I did expect something different for my bridesmaid bouquet though...colors were off so I wasn't very happy about them. *Advice: Make sure you see a sample for everything you're ordering.* I changed my centerpiece design a few times too after I saw the sample. Work with Nadia!
Robert at Pedestal was recommended to us by my mother's best friend and was very accommodating and helpful, and the flowers were beautiful. He was very receptive to photos we showed him and also showed us other photos and examples, and our blue and white low centerpieces, huppah, and bouquets were beautiful. While our initial idea had been for plant centerpieces made up of several small potted houseplants for guests to take home individually at the end, Pedestal would have had to go through another vendor for this and it would have cost an extra $500, and additionally although I had very much wanted organic and/or local flowers, due to family medical issues I didn't push for this for the extra headache and since my mother very much wanted Pedestal, and everything they did for us was certainly beautiful. The huppah with birch branches, a small amount of greenery, and two small talises that we brought over was perfect, as were the bridesmaid bouquets and bridal bouquet, with unwrapped stems as I had requested. Robert was accessible by phone and e-mail and made small adjustments that we requested shortly before the wedding, such as having an extra centerpiece that was in the package split up into smaller bunches for the cocktail hour. While we didn't get to support the organic flower industry as I had hoped, the flowers and huppah were beautiful and Pedestal was able to make our visions into reality for our beautiful wedding day.
I worked with Virgil for my wedding - this was the third time my family used Pedestals! Virgil was really amazing to work with, he remembered my family and really took care of us. He could envision what I wanted and really pulled through with it!! The flowers on the wedding day were fresh and beautiful, exactly as expected. The only downside was that the throw petals for church were missing, and the flowers for my cake were also not delivered. Luckily, we had extra flowers for the cake but had to make-do without petals for our ceremony.
Nadia at pedestals was amazing. She was able to put together a beautiful centerpiece on my budget as well as a chuppah, and bouquets. Many of my guests were commenting on how beautiful everything was. The bouquets lasted for days after the wedding and were just as beautiful. Nadia asked to see pictures of my dress before the wedding so that they could best design a bouquet to compliment it. I couldn't have asked for a better florist!
We worked with Virgil who helped personalize my wedding venue with the most beautiful flowers. I can't even list the different kinds of flowers they used b/c it would be too long. People were calling dibs on the taking the centerpieces home but we had the venue break them down so that every single woman could go home with a small bouquet. (That something that the venue can do for you). The flowers were fresh. The colors were outstanding. It really made the room pop. People's mouths dropped when they saw them.
Great company. They stand by their word.
