Need a good, fairly priced Florist

I am desperately looking for a florist that is good but also won't charge me an arm and a leg. Any recommendations?

My wedding will be in North Jersey but the florist does not have to be from there. Its going to be a 400 person wedding so I need them to work with me to build affordable beautiful centerpieces for my 40 tables. :)

Any suggestions would be much appreciated!
Thanks!

    I think your best bet would be someone local so you dont have to pay a travel fee.  Where are you getting married?

    I have heard Nathan from Avenue florist is amazing and works with a budget.

    I loved my flowers. Try Precious Petals Too. It's in Fairfield. Nancy is the owner and does the bridal consultations.

    I am getting low centerpieces (hydrangea and gerbera daisies) from AW Flowers in Kearny for $20 each.

    I am buying the vases myself ... 6-inch cube glass vases from Michael's/AC Moore for about $8 (I wait for coupons).

    Try Metropolitan Wholesale Flowers in Saddle Brook, the wedding flowers are not wholesale there but reasonably priced and for that big of a wedding I'm sure they will cut you a break.

    I 2nd Nathan and he doesn't charge you anything for the vase rental and comes and gets them at the end of the night. Super passionate and flexible.

    i agree with metropolitan plant exchange in saddle brook...
    they did my flowers and yumila is one of the sweetest nicest people i worked with....
    my flowers were fantastic!
    and definately reasonably priced...although, i did not do centerpieces, so i'm not sure what the going rate there is for those....

    I also used Precious Petals Too in Fairfield (as CV did above).  Nancy is a personal friend of mine, but is also AMAZINGLY talented and great to work with.  the number there is 973-808-4404.  If you want to see pics of mine, email me ddelo23@aol.com - my wedding was in april at florentine gardens and she did my flowers.
