For me, the flowers were one of the most important parts of my wedding. I knew exactly what I wanted and I knew exactly what I didn’t want. I first got a quote from The Davenport florist shop, and not surprisingly the quote was pretty pricey. We decided to get a second quote from Esther of Special Touch located on Nevada Street. Her quote for everything, plus more, was almost 50% cheaper than the Davenport quote. So it was no question who we would go with.
Esther orders her flowers from all over the world in order to get the best possible price and quality, and she always passes these savings on to her clients. She even reduced my original quote because she said she got a better deal when she ordered the flowers! She also bought in special vases for me (being the picky bride I was) and rented candle holders for me.
If I am completely honest I was a bit concerned that the quality of the flowers would suffer because of the low price…but I am happy to say they didn’t suffer at all. The moment I laid eyes on the bridal bouquet was one of my favorite of the whole day! It was exactly what I wanted.
I was a little disappointed in one of the centerpiece displays (I had 2) but I think it was because I did not communicate exactly what I wanted to Esther. When you are talking to any supplier you need to be as specific as possible, and try to get some pictures. But even if the centerpieces weren’t exactly what I wanted, they were still beautiful.
The thing that I think separates Esther from most suppliers is that she really loves what she does. She will make suggestions and literally go that extra mile to give you exactly what you want. Which is priceless…but in this case comes at a low price!
…yes…I have an obsession with hydrangeas!
