We used H.J. Benken for our September Wedding. The staff was fabulous to work with, and very helpful! Our flowers turned out great, and I was especially impressed with what they put together for our Ceremony (as I basically left it up to them based on our personal flower... Read More selections). There was one issue with our cake topper but the delivery woman was very quick to fix it and you would have never known the unwanted flowers in the arrangement were ever there! Thank You!

I was hesitant to go with H.J. Benken since they are so well known in Cincinnati-I was really nervous that they would be super duper expensive for what I had available in my budget. However, after comparing their prices to (get this) KROGER'S FLORAL DEPARTMENT, Benken had more... Read More bang for my buck!

Somehow I forgot about flowers, and I only had a little over 2 months left until my big day... I called H.J. Benkens Florist and they fit me in for an appointment the next day!

I was so pleased with H.J. Benken as my wedding florist! From first meeting with Robin, I was at ease. I showed her a couple of pictures that I liked, and she immediately knew what I wanted. I loved how she explained different flowers (since I have no knowledge of this...

It was a no-brainer after comparing florists who I should use. Communication was simple, and the result was phenomenal. Robin sent me pictures of the bouquets the day before the wedding, and I loved that! There was a slight mix up on the wedding day, and before I could even blink, Robin was at my venue fixing what was missing from my bouquet. She also followed up in the following weeks to make sure I was satisfied. I could not say enough great things about H.J Benken!

H.J. Benken was so delightful to work with. I actually had won flowers from them for Valentine's Day, and because of that decided to set up a consult for my wedding flowers.

H.J. Benken works with Oasis where we had our wedding. They're included in our package for centerpieces.

I highly recommend Robin at Benkens. Going in, I really only knew that I wanted red roses in my bouquet & was thrilled to find a rose that matched my color swatch exactly in their cut flowers cooler while my mom and I waited on our appointment. I mentioned it to Robin upon... Read Moreauyfcbefvrafaxtfuutwwtrufxwrzdburayxxw meeting her, and she knew right away it was a Freedom Rose. Other than that I really had no idea what to pick for my maid of honor's bouquet (only 1 attendant, small wedding), reception table centerpieces, or ceremony flowers. Robin offered great suggestions showing us several examples that they had on hand and also photos online. She listened to our questions and concerns and met with me in person 2 weeks later to answer my questions before finalizing the contract. I never felt like she pressured us to buy more than we needed and when we decided we would need a few more plants or arrangements for the ceremony 2 days before, she suggested adding a few more ferns which was much less expensive vs. cut flower arrangements and worked well. The quality of the flowers was excellent and delivery was on time. I met with one other florist and there was no comparison. Robin and the other women in the Benkens wedding department know what they are doing.

Wonderful experience, beautiful flowers!
