My wife and I spent $3,300+ on flowers for our wedding on 11/5/22. On the day of, the flowers arrived in an unacceptable condition. To quote our wedding venue director, she had never seen flowers arrive in such a poor state before.
ières were falling apart before we even pinned them on the groomsmen. The table settings had flowers that were browning, as if they were days if not weeks old. We called ABQ Florist yesterday to discuss, and the general manager told us he would call back the next day at 9am alongside the events manager.
So we made sure to set aside 30 minutes at 9am the next day, but never received a call. I finally call the shop and learn that neither the general manager nor the event manager are working that day. So why did the GM tell us otherwise? They are not attempting to make this right at all and just dodging the conversation.
For the amount we spent, we are shocked at the quality of the flowers and the customer service experience. We had a set day/time for a conversation, and they showed zero respect for our time. We have numerous friends getting married over the next 18 months and will be sure to warn them about Albuquerque Florist.
I will update this review with pictures of the flowers once my photographer sends them over.

aids' ones, the church pews, the groom and groomsmen, the parents and ushers, the altar displays and the reception tables. He is very accommodating, friendly and professional. The flowers turned out sunny and bold and gorgeous. Prices were reasonable and coordination with the reception venue was smooth. The only hitch was my cascading bouquet - it had its handle upside down (and we couldn't budge it) which made holding it awkward. But we believe that was a small mistake since everything else was perfect.

The flowers for our wedding were absolutely gorgeous. I worked with Alex at the Juan Tabo location and we were able to select flowers that incorporated my favorite flower (lilacs) and other flowers that matched the color scheme I was going for....
He was great about matching my budget and even offered suggestions on how to bring the price down. Once the actual big day came the flowers were delivered on time - except not all the flowers I had ordered. Luckily my dad noticed that 2 of the 3 grandmother's corsages were missing. I called up Albuquerque Florist and explained my situation. The lady I spoke with said that she had only 1 grandmother's corsage on the order. I still had my invoice that listed 3. She got on it right away and the missing corsages were delivered just in time for our wedding. I appreciate the fact that even though they made a mistake they were great about making it right for me with no push back. Plus the bouquets we got were so beautiful!

She is quick to respond by email and can always be reached at the shop by phone or in person. She makes sure brides have a final look at their bouquets before the big day, so I went the Thursday before our Saturday wedding and looked over what she had prepared. I ended up wanting to change the flower on the groom's boutonniere, and add more greenery to my bouquet, which appeared to be no problem at all. The flowers were simply stunning.

ts. I should have asked then or been told how many people to bring. I had previously asked if I could also get the reception flowers taken care of. I had 5 bridesmaids plus me and my 2 wedding decorators. When we got there she was like only 3 people can fit back there. Plus I had to go spray the flowers I ordered from then (tiffany blue). I had just had my nails done and I wanted to get us started making the flowers. She moved us around to a couple spots because she didnt like where we were spraying which was frustrating that I even had to do that. Well there went my $80 manicure. I was just getting married in 2 days... They then made space for my decorators to put the reception flowers together. Ok that was good. We just about finished all the flowers when they were closing. I left instruction for my decorators that Nancy had said they would give us 1-2 more bushels of babies breath & the rest of the hydrangeas I ordered to get do on the big day. Nancy was sweet when we left and said dont worry about paying for the extra flowers you need I thought of wow she is so sweet! They show up to pick up all the flowers for my wedding. The bouquets wernt finished they refused to give then more babies breath. I also had 10-15 hydrangea I had ordered to decorate the reception they refused to give them those. They only left them take what was in the vases & the other items I had ordered.... I really wanted to say they were pleasant. But mostly they were rude and annoyed with us that we were there and I didnt get all I paid for. I should have sent a list of what we used and what we didnt. Lesson learned.

erous flowers out of their refrigerator. She then had me pick out the ones I did not like and then we were left with possible flowers for my bouquet. I loved her method and the fact that she let us take the arrangement with us. The week before the wedding we stopped in and delivered the center piece vases. You can either rent, buy vases from them, or bring in your own. She didn't mind at all that we brought in our own to help with cost. On that visit she could tell I was probably very overwhelmed with all I had to do. She gave me a big hug and told me it would all come together. I really appreciated her care and concern. She also had me come back in the day before the wedding to see the bouquets. I think this is unusual and I was glad she suggested that as in the end there was one flower that just stuck out to me as - no thank you - and she was able to alter it. Overall I was very happy with the arrangements and would highly recommend Nancy.
