Flowers, I love you but not that much!

Hey ladies,

I am looking to book my flowers for the big day. Does anyone have any good recommendations? I have heard of CG Blume but has anyone had any experiences with them?

I am trying to keep the flower budget low hardly including any as centerpieces.

Thanks!!!!

    Look into Lauren Ripko @ Its Quintessential (she's over on the nest as well if you want to page her over there).  I've also heard good things about Dawn @ Hillside Consultants.  Good luck!  I feel your pain with the expense of flowers...we ended up doing candles for centerpieces & then just accenting with a few flowers on each table to save the cost of a full floral centerpiece.
    no identifiable siggy pictures anymore, thanks a lot stupid nest!

    I've heard Dawn is good as well. I've also heard good things about Plum Sage.

    CG Blume did my sisters wedding in June and it was super nice. She had calla lilys and roses.

    She has pics of her wedding on her facebook page if you want to take a look.

    Hope it helps :)

    Thanks girls!

    I have a couple of appointments with the recommendations I got including CG Blume. I am just glad that there are people out there willing to work with your budget.

    Yeah i'm actually going to do the silk flowers. Im not a huge flower person so spending like 800.00 on flowers (something that is going to die in two days) did not seem worth it to me. So i think im going to micheals and having their flower person put together my flowers. Which Im way excited since the wedding is on halloween I can do actuall black  roses instead of the dark red ones. I know some brides think that the silk flowers are tacky but I think it will look good and Im saving a ton of money

    Dawn with HIllside Consultants is amazing and works with low budgets. I used her for my bouquets and did my own centerpieces using flowers from fiftyflowers.com. They sent beautiful roses for a great price. GL!

    We are going with Oakes Fields. Colleen Oakes is the owner and she somehow managed all of our flowers (centerpieces included!) in a budget that others could barely get us our bouquets for
