Wedding Day Flowers
July weddingReviewed on 8/31/2014 Dione C
The flowers at my wedding definitely exceeded my expectations! They were incredibly beautiful. I gave Neil a few ideas of what I liked and the atmosphere of the wedding. What he and his team came up with was incredible! Thank you very much for your professionalism and expertise!!!
Great flowers, poor service.Reviewed on 2/12/2015 Katelyn B
I went in for a consultation with Sara at the HEB in Westlake. She wasn't exactly warm and fuzzy, but I already knew that based on other reviews. The consultation was very informative on flowers, colors, and arrangement options and I was very excited by the time it was over. Since we would be providing our own vases (which she said wasn't a problem) she told me once I emailed her the dimensions of all 23 vases (only 18 vases to actually be used, including ones for our bouquets after the ceremony) she would send me a specific quote. A week later I finally had all the vases and emailed the dimensions to her. Two weeks passed after emailing her and I still had heard nothing. My fiancé called to see how the quote is coming along and if they need any more information. The man on the phone is very rude to him. He tells my fiancé (basically talking over him while he is trying to give him our information) that they usually don't do weddings that big, but that they had our packet and would get to our quote eventually. No one had mentioned to us during the consultation that our wedding was too big or I probably would have gone to another florist who was more confident that they could serve our "big" wedding. Another week and a half has gone by and still no quote. My wedding is two months out now! I have given up on HEB Blooms and am moving on to Central Market. Just over the phone their florist is more friendly and says she can serve our wedding and stay within our budget. It's weird that one HEB brand (central market) is so willing to accommodate and meet our budget (even though central market is typically more expensive) and another isn't. I have since talked to other brides and MOHs who have worked with the Westlake HEB Blooms and have heard various levels of frustrations due to lack of communication on their part. I guess they hide it well during the consultations. I left it at 2 stars because though their service has been bad, every time I go grab a bouquet while grocery shopping the flowers are great and last at least a week. The one time they died 2 days after purchase they refunded my money when I returned them.
Absolutely Beautiful!!Reviewed on 11/24/2014
I used H.E.B. Blooms for my daughters wedding this past week-end at Vintage Villas in Austin, Texas. It was difficult planning this wedding living out of town. As I was pricing other flower shops, I was told that H.E.B was used a lot in that area. I worked with both Kelly and Neil and had a great experience. The flowers were absolutely beautiful. Communication was great. I highly recommend their service.

I met with Susan in the Floral Department at our HEB in Round Rock off University Oaks. She was able to help me plan and create an ideal wedding bouquet and centerpieces for my wedding. I choose to go with stargazer lilies and roses for the bridal and bridesmaid bouquet. The centerpieces were these gorgeous hydrangeas mixed with roses and stargazer lilies. I loved how full and colorful my bouquet turned out. Susan was amazing and flexible during the process. I had to DOUBLE the number of centerpieces in the last month before our wedding and the Floral Department at HEB stepped up to the plate and delivered! After the wedding our guests took home all of the centerpieces! I would recommend this vendor to any bride because of their customer service, designs, and knowledge.
Best florist you will ever work with!Reviewed on 12/12/2013 Marc M
HEB Blooms is the perfect florist! During our wedding planning, we quickly discovered that floral arrangements associated with weddings are overpriced. Strangely enough the HEB on Whitestone always has the best floral designs we had ever seen. We always stop at that location to buy anything to do with flowers. Their lead floral designer is Angela Duran at the Whitestone location and her creations are pure eye candy. We asked Angela if they did weddings and if they delivered. The answer was yes! We setup and appointment and brought in all of our vases that we had made, and décor picture mock ups so she could get a feel for the theme and colors of the weddings. After picking out what flower theme to use, they had a great planner that let us pick out everything quickly. Strangely enough, due to the bulk of the same flowers we bought, the savings in bulk was actually passed on to us! Our wedding had a ton of flowers used in pots, vases for the tables, gift tables, the chapel etc. They all came out fabulous, especially the bridal bouquet! Not a single flower was wilted, everything showed up to the venue on time and most importantly it all looked amazing! Don’t waste your time with florists that take days to call you back. HEB blooms will get it done correctly and is backed by the grocery store you trust!

My flowers were beautiful and fresh
Horrible experience, I would never recommend themReviewed on 10/23/2012 Jessica R
My wedding coordinator recommended Sara from HEB Blooms, but it turned out to be a disaster. My friend's boyfriend picked up the flowers and my bouquet looked exactly like my bridesmaids, only bigger. I asked her to use hydrangeas, white roses and a little bit of purple in mine (I wanted my bouquet mostly white), and only white roses and purple stock in the bridesmaid bouquets. All the bridesmaids had hydrangeas in theirs as well, and mine only had two. My bridesmaids had to undo all the bouquets just before the wedding and take all the hydrangeas from the girl's and put them in mine and take most of the purple out of mine to use in theirs. My mom's corsage was also supposed to be around her wrist (which we requested because her dress was too busy to have something pinned to it), and I was paying more to have it be special, but it arrived as a pin-on style and looked identical to those of my grandmother and aunt's. The worst part is that when I tried to contact Sara after-the-fact, she wouldn't even return my emails or phone calls to even give me an apology. My flowers were pathetic at best, and not worth the money I spent. Go somewhere else.

My flowers were beautiful what more can you say
Mind readers!Reviewed on 3/19/2012 Beth S
Our florists, Bridget, Susan and Lucia, are at the HEB at Anderson Mill and 620. Bridget and I sat down and I told her a VERY vague description of the look we were going for. She had me look at some photos of flowers and pick out a few that I liked. This was the hardest part of the wedding for me because I felt so overwhelmed with all the different options. I went back a week later to look at a mock bouquet and centerpiece they had put together for me and as soon as I saw what she had created from my jumble of thoughts, I literally teared up. They had made the most beautiful bouquet and arrangement I had ever seen. She took my idea and made it 100 times better than I could have ever envisioned. The day of the wedding, the girls arrived and worked their magic and created a beautiful setting. Bridget, Susan, and Lucia are artists and went above and beyond and I highly recommend using them!
Exactly What We Wanted!Reviewed on 11/22/2011 Laura W
We used the H-E-B Blooms on Escarpment and they were perfect. We only wanted the personal flowers and a lot of florist lost interest when we mentioned that so it was such a relieve to work with Julie at H-E-B. She was great and really helped me pick the perfect arrangements for my bouquets. Also, she went above and beyond on making our superhero boutonnieres - everyone loved them!

AffordableReviewed on 10/26/2010 Amy F
I searched and searched and everywhere I looked I would have spent at least $600 and I didn't have that many flowers. I went to HEB got the flowers I wanted for $260. This included 8 bootneers,4 corsages, 3 bidesmaids bouques, flower girl pedals, and my bouque.
