I thought I could do it all. When we went to different florist to price out what we wanted, it came into the thousands. So I figured I would YouTube and get the supplies myself. I even made a test bouquet on my own.
About two months bef...
ore the wedding, I met Andrea. I was just about to figure out my wholesale flower orders online. She told me that if I already have all the supplies, she could put everything together for me and only charge for the labor. Sold!
I gave her my supplies. We went to the Boston Flower Exchange together to pick out flowers. She ordered the Black Magic roses that I wanted and the deep purple orchids that I couldn't find anywhere else.
On the day of, the bouquet looked beautiful. The boutonnieres, corsages, and wreaths looked beautiful as well. She used the extra flowers to decorate the favors and gift tables and the cake table. Everyone commented on how nice the flowers were.
The only reason why it is not 5 stars is that Andrea has a rushed way about her. I am a person who likes to take her time and look and analyze. I felt at times that Andrea was getting impatient. However, she is a great person and we had a terrific time with her. Also, my bouquet was coming undone by the time pictures/cocktail hour was coming to an end. I would recommend her to anyone. She is professional and flexible to your budget. It was a true treasure of a find for us as a florist.
