It is only now, months after my wedding that I feel ready to write this review. Bride & Blossom did not provide many of the items we paid for, and others were left either incomplete, or wilting. We paid for a floral arch around the chuppah, which I told Rachel many times was the... Read More most important thing, as I have always dreamed of having a floral arch at my wedding and they only covered the top with 1/4 of the flowers contracted, and left it looking haphazard. We paid for corsages for our mothers, and they were never given to them. Our bridesmaids bouquets were falling apart and browning. Groomsmen boutonnieres were not given to us until after photos had been taken and were also limp and falling apart. There is actually a picture from our reception of us laughing that my husband's boutonniere had completely obliterated and left pieces all over our sweetheart table. Another thing Rachel claims is that the nature of the flowers were very delicate. She is a professional florist and I took all of her recommendations. She did not once mention that this would be a risk with the flowers she had selected for me. She also tried to claim that my flowers had wilted because it was a hot day. The day was unseasonably cool- look up the weather for Brooklyn NY on August 6,2017. Weather reports do not lie. Rachel does. (Even if it had been hot, summer is wedding season- shouldn't a professional florist know how to keep flowers alive for summer weddings?) I was also accused by the person they had sent to "oversee" the setup of demanding out of season flowers- this was a blatant lie and Rachel even admitted so. Days after the wedding, I had still not been contacted by Rachel, which is very unprofessional for any business owner who has been left with an unhappy client. When I first called, I was initially hung up on. After leaving a voicemail saying that I would keep calling until someone picked up, Rachel picked up after many attempts and the first thing she did was scream at me that I was a psycho. Trust me, I REALLY wish I did not need to call so many times to be answered . Initially, out of principle, we requested a refund. On my wedding day, I married the love of my life. All of my other vendors were AMAZING. I did not want to spend any more time of my life recounting the one negative part of the day. My parents are very wealthy. My husband and I do very well for ourselves. The money means NOTHING to me or my family so we backed off. At this point, we do not want any money from Rachel. She can keep the money she saved from services not rendered. I am only writing this review because I I want to help other women avoid the horrible experience I had. Rachel tries t to make us seem like money grabbers. As I've said, we do not want or need any money. This amount of money is literally nothing to us. What reason would I have to be leaving this review of the vendor who I had initially been the most excited about? I am happy to share photos of our proposal and the results we were given to anyone who is considering Bride and Blossom for their upcoming wedding - just message me.

Working with Rachel, Elianna, and the rest of the team at Bride & Blossom was such a pleasure! They truly helped our vision come to life and we received so many compliments on every detail - even from the venue after we had to negotiate not to use a required florist on their... Read More list. Given we just moved out of state and were located halfway across the country, planning a destination wedding for ourselves and working through all of the details felt a bit scary. We spoke over the phone with many florists, and even had a required list of florists to use for our venue but we still weren't finding the right fit. After speaking with Rachel over the phone, and then getting to meet in person, we knew our decision has been made. Rachel and Elianna made us feel comfortable, confident, and thrilled with everything we were hoping for on our wedding day. The whole process from start to finish was made seamless - the proposal and pricing was clear cut without any hidden costs, the photos and detail of arrangements/decor are exactly what you get, and even when there were changes to be made or questions/concerns, the communication was so quick and easy. Bride & Blossom was absolutely wonderful and we absolutely recommend using them for any of your needs!

COMPLETELY IGNORED WHAT WAS AGREED, CONTRACTED, PAID FOR, LEAVING BRIDE CRYING ON WEDDING DAY! BE AWARE! I am the mother of the bride. We arrived at venue on wedding day and thought the arrangements were left from an earlier wedding. Flowers were limp, brown-edged, petals... Read More falling out, and bouquets had gray and beige limp, dying roses, not the bright colors chosen and looking suitable for a funeral. Several of the items ordered were simply never delivered. When I asked to speak with Rachel or Eliana (Rachel had promised that one of them always goes to each event), I was told they weren't coming. The young lady from their company was sympathetic and acknowledged that the flowers were in bad shape. She told me she would contact Rachel and have her call me, and see if she could get new flowers 3 hours before ceremony. When I didn't hear after an hour, I called and left a vm and emailed Rachel with "Emergency" in the subject bar. No response. We spent the next hours trying to rework the centerpieces and reach Rachel. Hair and makeup were cut short, and due to the chaos this created, the photographer did not even have time to take portraits of my daughter. Need to fix flowers delayed the ceremony by 45 minutes, and when my daughter started to walk down the aisle she saw that the canopy was not at all what we contracted and paid for. It was supposed to be covered with flowers both on top and on both legs. Instead, there were only flowers on the top, with raw wooden legs with no flowers at all. Later I was told by my guests that they only started constructing the canopy at 6 PM when all my guests were sitting there - very unprofessional. It was only because the problems they caused delayed the wedding, or there would have been no canopy at all. All of this created anguish and unhappiness for my daughter on what should have been a wonderful day. We never heard from Rachel or Eliana by the time the wedding started, and the next morning I saw that Rachel had sent me an email at 9:38 PM, well after anything could be done. No one ever called the next day to apologize or inquire about the situation, and when my daughter called her two days later, she hung up on her, and only picked up after my daughter told her she was going to keep calling until she picked up. An honest, legitimate businessperson does not need to hide from their customers. When she finally picked up, instead of apologizing, she immediately started screaming, calling my daughter names and threatening her. When I sent an email of complaint, she called me, made a thousand lame excuses, denied the problems, screamed at me and called me names also. She told me the wedding planner had told her everything was fine. When I later emailed the planner, she told me that what Rachel said was a complete lie. We came to them in part because everything was specified in the contract down to the stem. This did not prevent Bride & Blossom from ignoring what was contracted and paid for in advance, supplying dead flowers, flowers different than what was agreed, and simply not supplying many items paid for, such as the unfinished canopy. We paid them $12,000 in advance, but once paid, they felt no obligation to fulfill their contract or communicate with us. Very mean and cold! Look and you'll see, this happened to others. In her reply, she says we came to her after leaving another florist. Completely fabricated! Don't end up crying like my daughter!

I felt cheated, extremely disappointed with B&B and regret using them. Rachel and Elianna told me they would be at my wedding but they were inaccessible on my wedding day. Instead, they sent their assistants whom I have never met before and not familiar with my plans. They... Read More arrived late delivering the bouquets. When I arrived at the venue, I was shocked to see the ceremony space was no where near set up, there were boxes of flower supplies. Prior to the ceremony, my venue coordinator came to me in the bridal suite to warn me that there were problems with the florist. As I walked down the aisle, I noticed that my altar and ceremony floral arrangements were missing. When I got to the front, I saw branches and flowers in the bushes on the ground behind our officiant. I asked Rachel after the wedding what happened and she explained that the vases blew over and broke as they set up in the early afternoon. She said her team then waited and put them back in the replacement vases closer to the time of the ceremony. They blew over and broke again. I had warned B&B multiple times at the advice of the venue, that it can get windy near the water at Battery Gardens, but she decided to use glass vases with a hollow bottom/stand. I thought B&B was an experienced vendor but failing to pick and use the appropriate outdoor vases was an immature mistake. It's common sense that she should have used heavy garden (stone) vases. No one from B&B team approached me to let me know. As the night progressed, there were lots of flowers/details missing including missing lanterns at the cocktail hour space, missing flowers at the base of the cake, no hanging candles, no cascading flowers for the parents table. We paid almost 10k for all these details and it was like we hired an amateur florist doing their first wedding. There was no attention to details, e.g. B&B decided to reduce the flower count in our sweetheart table which is the focal point of the reception area; I asked for cascading high centerpieces, I got a round shape. Rachel refunded me for some but not all of the missing pieces. She came up with lots of excuses including street closures, fire dept inspection, another client needing a Chuppah etc. She didn't even contact me after the wedding to apologize, until I contacted her and complained. She said she was planning to after my honeymoon (I didn't leave until 2 weeks after!)...how about a simple email or something? I'm confused by the nice reviews and instagram.
