Florist Recommendations?

I'm looking for your recommendations for budget friendly or reasonably priced florists.

TIA!

    Nicole Pirani- Blooms of hope

    http://www.bloomsofhopefloral.com/

    She works out of her house too. She is affordable and will work with your budget, I also love that she gives a portion of her proceeds to charity.

    a second bride for The Tangled Web - totally affordable, stays within your budget and Jen is awesome to work with (and I changed my mind a million times over!)

    Third for The Tangled Web. :o) Jen did an amazing job! And like bostonbride214, I changed my mind a lot (a few changes even 3 weeks before!) and she totally made everything awesome.

    Lyndsey Loring in NH is very reasonably priced.  I was going to do my flowers myself until I found her.  She also works out of her house, so overhead is low.

    I used The Candy Jar: Designs in Bloom in Pembroke.  Kim, the owner, was great--quote was $500 less than TTW and I was very satisfied with her work.  She was very receptive to my input and adjusted blooms and style to accommodate our budget and vision.

    I do think Jen's work (Tangled Web) is lovely and quite competitively priced for what you get, too.

    Kelly Harris http://www.beautifulbloomslive.com/About.html She also works from home and is very reasonably priced. I also met with Suzanne at  Bella Floral and really liked her as well. So far I LOVE Kelly. She did a centerpiece for me to see and I loved it!

    Madison Chae at Edison Florals... and much to my surprise Winston Flowers (which is who we went with).  I met with several florists and Edison and Winston were the only ones that came within my budget.

    We used Suzanne Bellanger from Bella Floral Design and highly recommend her.  I have pics of our actual flowers in my bio (link in siggy - under Flowers).  My review is also in there (under Vendor Reviews).  She was great to work with and our flowers looked amazing.  And I thought her prices were very reasonable, especially given the amount and quality of what we got.  She'll definitely work with you to stay within a budget.  Here's her website

    We are using Judy's Village Flowers out of Foxboro. She's been great to work with so far and I've heard good reviews!

    Another vote for Jen Cahill... She is amazing, super responsive, and very reasonably priced!

    We are using Judy @ Judy's Village too., for our centerpieces. She's been great.  She had created a sample centerpiece that was on display at our venue's food tasting and I loved it.  Over the past week I have changed the flowers 3 times, and each time she has been wonderful.  She got my latest vision down to a tee.
    Our centerpieces were included in our package, so not sure on the price, but she does do fantastic work.

    Our bouquets are being done by a family friend at The Potting Bench in Braintree.  I am totally not a flower person, but I brought in some pics of what I liked and she was able to see the style I was going for.  She came up with a great arrangement for me and the bridesmaids.

    We used Winston Flowers.  Now, they are notoriously expensive, BUT I think only if you are set on a particular flower, arrangement, etc.  We didn't require many flowers (esp since we did non-floral centerpieces), so we had:

    1 bridal bouquet
    5 corsages
    5 bouts
    8 pew end decorations in the church
    1 large bouquet for the bar/reception

    We gave them a $1-2k total budget, but said we were open to using any kind of flower.  We just gave a general idea of what we wanted.  Our total price including fees was around $1k.  Our flowers were all bright, colorful, and they used lots of tropicals.  We had peonies, calla lilies, orchids, pin cushions and bright leaves/foliage--oh, and a few things we didn't know what they were! :)

    We had a general idea of what our designer was going to do, but didn't know exactly how anything was going to look ahead of time.  We loved everything though.  Depending on how flexible you can be, they will definitely work with any budget.
    Yay! Finally able to update my signature :)

    Jeff & Company - out of RI but does Boston area weddings as well - was fantastic.  A great guy, worked out in LA for a famous florist company before moving back east, is really nice and super flexible with the budget.  Highly recommend!
