Hey, I noticed you used Peddles flowers for your wedding and I would love to hear more about your experience with them.  I met with her today and her prices were sooo much lower than everyone else's that it made me wonder if it was too good to be true.  In fact, she cut her original estimates in half from when she talked to me on the phone and it got me really excited.  But  I was also worried because she was the only florist I met with that ran her business out of her house rather than a studio or shop so I wasn't sure how legit everything is. But, I really thought she was pleasant and I liked her. I know you definitely have discerning taste so I wanted to know how your experience was.

    hi theresa!Vicki was AWESOME. if you've seen my photos you will see that she has excellent taste and ability. she was very patient throughout the year leading up to the wedding. we went thru tons of revisions, mainly b/c i needed to lower the floral budget when we added some additional expenses (ie uplighting). it's funny b/c the majority of her book of work (she has a photo album or 2 that she shows to prospective clients) wasn't really in keeping with my vision or aesthetic for the wedding, but i saw ONE photo that showed she could do more of a european style of floral arranging, and that sold me on her. i am really happy i decided to take that leap of faith b/c she didn't disappoint.she is one of the vendors i will continue to recommend for her professionalism and excellent prices. and her prices were the best i found hands-down (i believe i got quotes from 6 florists or so). i think that because she works out of her home, her prices are much more affordable.let me know if you have any more questions.

    Thanks for the reply.  Yeah, her prices were SOOO much lower than everyone else's.  And then she lowered them even more after meeting and talking with me.  I kept thinking that there must be something wrong or something I was missing for her prices to be so much lower than the other florists I talked to.  She was able to offer me four really tall very nice arrangements with hanging crystals, etc and four medium ones plus flowers for the cake and escort card table and flower petals, lights for the vases and all the personal flowers and corsages for about 1000 dollars. Everyone else came in over my budget with way less flowers than that and I've gotten quotes from at least five florists.
