Florist Recommendation

I could really use a recommendation for a great florist who is not too expensive. My flower budget is around $1,000. I'd like to get as much as possible with that budget. (Although, I am realistic that it won't be a lot.) Any recommendations would be helpful!

Thank you so much in advance.

    We are using Focus By Design, which is Schnucks.  We are very happy with them so far.

    We used them as well- specifically Rosa- and our flowers were awesome.  I have some pics in my bio if you click on my name.

    You go to the Schnucks warehouse in Olivette (I think?).  We met with them but didn't use them, because they came in only about $100 less ($1800 vs $1700) than a proper florist who we ended up going with (Botanicals Design Studio on S. Grand by Tower Grove Park).

    Thank you :).  My practical engineer side took over my girly side and won the battle of heels vs. flats.

    I'm using Belli Fiori, which is a florist on the Hill. It's a young gal who is engaged herself and I love her ideas! I went to Dierberg's too and liked BF better in personality and price.

    I am using The Crimson Petal. The woman's name is Kelly Jurotich. She completely understood what I wanted and she worked with my budget. Her website is http://www.thecrimsonpetal.com/

    Also, my budget was the same as yours. I have 6 bridesmaids bouquets, my bouquet, 13 boutonnieres, and 8 corsages.

    I used marry me flowers in Ofallon missouri. She did a great job on my fall themed flowers.

    Beware of "Jill Springer" from Flower Depot. She took all the money in advance for my wedding flowers, but never delivered the flowers to my venue.  I had to walk down the aisle without the flowers. It was a bride's WORST nightmare.

    She refused to answer the phone afterwards and I had to threaten to take her to court to even get a partial refund. She ruined my wedding - I would like to warn anyone considering to hire her.
