Flowers!

Reviewed on 5/17/2010 Jennie P

I loved my flowers! I had never seen anything exactly like what I wanted for either mine or my bridesmaid's bouquets so I couldn’t really provide any pictures to Flowerthyme as inspiration...I just had to describe the best I could! They nailed my vision exactly on the head, even... Read More better than I could have pictured! We got from them: bridal bouquet, 6 bridesmaids bouquets, 10 bouts, floral centerpiece at church, throwaway bouquet and pew ribbons. They were on time to deliver and set everything up, were super friendly and helped the boys put their bouts on...no complaints!

Joy did an absolutely wonderful job! She captured my vision and took it above and beyond.

Reviewed on 7/07/2011 Marissa J

I had always heard and seen pictures of what a good job Joy and her staff at flowertyme do- but until the bridesmaids bouquets and my bridal bouquet showed up at my house, I had no idea how unbelievable of a job they did. The flowers were perfect, and once I got to the church... Read More and reception, it was only magnified. I felt like I didnt have a huge knowledge base on flowers, but I had a general idea of what I wanted...

The customer service was fantastic and the finished product was just perfect. Highly recommend!

We used Flowerthyme for my July 9, 2016 wedding. I booked with Joy about 10 months before. The wedding florals were absolutely beautiful.

We worked with Joy at Flowerthyme for our May wedding. We only ordered bouquets and boutonnieres as we chose to make our own decorations. Joy was easy to reach and did a fantastic job with the bouquets! I couldn’t even imagine something as lovely as what we received. All of the...

Joy did an amazing job working with my vision and color scheme on our wedding day 9/6/15.I met 2 times with Joy and at each meeting she seemed organized, professional and you could tell she has been in the business for awhile. She asks you to create a pinterest board so she can... Read More work with your vision and off of other pieces she has made in the past, which is very helpful! Her prices are very affordable and her chuppah was beautiful! The birch wood chuppah is the REAL reason we went with Joy, it was one of the nicest ones we had found in the area. She was able to secure the chuppah to the ground on a VERY windy day at Warwick Country Club with planters filled with blue and green hydrangeas. It was beautiful and we received many compliments on the chuppah and centerpieces. My own negatives were the size of my bouquet and the bridesmaids. From what we had planned I thought they would be bigger, but they still showed up well in the photographs. Due to the weather and during delivery, a tall vase with flowers also broke which was supposed to be used in the ballroom, but she was able to salvage the flowers and use them on the gift table. Also the hydrangeas on the cake went limp and dry halfway through the night and she only placed them on top of the cake, when I had planned to have them continue on each layer downward. These were minor issues in the whole scheme of the day, but I wish she would have acknowledged them and maybe credited us something in return. All in all, Joy is very good at what she does and I would use her again, as her work is beautiful and very affordable!

Joy did an amazing job with our wedding flowers! She was easy to talk to, worked with my budget and helped me find the right flowers for my bouquet as well as my centerpieces. Joy really listened to what I wanted, took the time to view my pictures on pinterest and delivered... Read More the most beautiful results. I could not have been happier with her work. She delivered the flowers on time and made sure the ceremony was set up beautifully. Joy also helped me to maximize the use of my flowers by re-using the centerpieces as ceremony decorations. She transported everything for us and helped us to determine how many arrangements we would need for the reception hall. She was familiar with the layout and even showed us pictures of a wedding she had done there before to help us visualize. Joy was a pleasure to work with and delivered a quality product that made an overall great experience!

Romantic flowers!

We worked with Joy from Flowerthyme for our wedding in May. She was wonderful! Talking with her was casual and easy. Unlike some florists I attempted to work with, she listened to my ideas and looked through the pictures I sent without taking it too literal. She took this... Read More information, digested it and then created beautiful centerpieces, side table décor and most importantly, the bouquets. The bouquets were perfect! Everything I could have ever wanted and more! She had a little “bling,” just the right amount of color and romance. They were full and she used gorgeous flowers; all of this…on a budget. She worked with me to choose what aspects of the flower décor were most important and what would have the most impact- and it worked! I would absolutely recommend Joy as anyone’s florist.

Flowerthyme

Reviewed on 10/12/2013 Jill N

I was extremely disappointed in Flowerthyme. They are the only vendor I did not have an extremely positive experience with. The pricing was extremely reasonable, but they seemed to be very disorganized and made most of my flowers off of old notes that were no longer applicable... Read More after our final meeting 3 weeks before the event. The good: centerpieces and flowers for the arbor were perfect, the maid of honor's bouquet and the mothers' nosegays were mostly correct. The bad: all of the bouquets/nosegays had these grey leafy things in them, which were in one of my reference photos, but we had discussed that they were not to be used. My bouquet was 1/3 of the size I thought it was going to be and it didn't follow the design we had discussed (and I provided reference photos for). We ordered a bunch of single dahlia blossoms in 4" bowls, but they used 6" bowls which were much too big. The single blossoms were lost in the bigger bowls. We had flowers ties to the ceremony chairs. They were supposed to have black satin ribbon, but they used burlap. We were able to get the ribbon corrected before the ceremony. I had a meeting with Joy about 3 weeks before my wedding and brough a single paper with all the photos she would need for references. She made some notes directly on the paper during out meeting. I would be inclined to say she lost the paper, but the MOH bouquet was picture perfect (other than the grey leaves) and the only time I gave her that photo was at our last meeting. My DOC personally recommended Joy and even called her from the venue to let her know about all the issues. I thought it would have been the professional thing to do for her to call or email me and at least appologize for the mistakes, but I haven't heard anything several weeks later. Flowerthyme's pricing is incredibly reasonable, but I cannot in good conscience recommend them.

Working with Joy was just that- an absolute joy. I didn't know too much about specific flowers but I had a color scheme and a feeling that I wanted to capture.

Thank you Joy, for making my venue come alive with my vision for my wedding and helping to make our day even more special.
