From the Concierge at The St. Paul Hotel:

The Twin Cities Flower shop on Grand and Smith Ave. It's close to downtown, has extended hours, and puts out a great product at reasonable price. The number for them is 651-298-1377. It's a smaller shop, but they do a nice work. Let me know if we can help with anything else.

Best regards,

Cameron

I'm using Irene Alton of Coco Rose Floral Designs (651-645-5512 and [email protected]) for my May 1st, 2010 wedding. She's EXTREMELY reasonable and works out of her home, so there's low overhead costs. She's also super good at working at any budget and extremely a nice person (which helps!)

Good luck!

Serendipity Floral! We used them for our wedding last April and she was fantastic. One of my bridesmaid's flowers were wilting a little before the ceremony, so she drove out to replace them! Very reasonably price and an incredibly nice woman!

Colleen's Flower Celler! Colleen has a "studio" at her home in St. Paul. She is amazing, reliable, experienced and her prices are so much more reasonable than any other place I found. She did a great job for both my small wedding and my niece's wedding with 200 guests.

Do not use Lexington Floral in Shoreview. My flowers came 2 hours late and most died within 4 hours.....half way throught the pictures we had to pick out dead ones. I also had to place my order twice with them since they lost the first one.

You have to go to Garden of Eva on Marshall and Snelling.

She is so reasonably priced and I liked her because I went with my Fiance and she asked him what he wanted out of the flowers, which I thought was unique because though most brides do the planning it's refreshing to remember it's his wedding too! She asked all about the colors of the wedding, the theme, the church, and the reception site. At two of the other locations I checked they did not ask any of that. I had a faux bouquet from my grandmother that I wanted to use and they took the whole thing apart, re-did it and after the wedding I brought it in and they put it back together just like before! The care and attention to detail was amazing. We had 35 spider mums, a bouquet touch up, Cymbidium orchids for the wedding party (no bouquets for the bridesmaids only corsages), very large Alstroemeria corsages for the moms and such, and she threw in an extra bout for the men because she knows sometimes they get smashed. We also had some greenery put in our own potted vases for the card table, ranunculus for the cake topper (which is $9 a stem, 1 bud per stem but it's my favorite flower), and with the delivery charge it was less than $500.

We used A Pocket Full of Posies. Roxie did a great job for a reasonable price. She does the business on the side out of her home. Let me know if you'd like her e-mail address. Here is a link to her facebook profile: http://www.facebook.com/#/pages/Minneapolis-MN/Pocket-Full-of-Posies/88299234022?ref=sgm

We used Freeport Floral and Gifts and they did an excellent job at our wedding, matching the style and colors exactly as we wanted.

Ask for Michele @ 800-760-8856

Some photo examples of their work is here:

I highly highly recommend - they were friendly, creative, and did just what we wanted and we loved the flowers and displays.

My daughter's wedding was held in St. Paul on November, 2008, and we had ther flowers for her wedding done by Stems and Vines, located on Grand Avenue in St. Paul. They did and excellent job -- for both our synagoge and for the reception at the St. Paul Hotel -- and I couldn't have been more pleased! The flowers were presented so beautifully; a nice, elegant touch to my daughter's wedding! I got lots of great compliments on the table arrangements and the way the alter was decorated. If I had another daughter, of which I don't (only 2 sons), I would NOT hesitate to use them again! Good luck in your search!

Check out Bumble Floral at http://www.bumblefloral.com/

I used I Do flowers for my bouquet and all the personal flowers. Alisa works out of her home and is very reasonable. I bought my centerpiece flowers bulk from bloomsbythebox.com and did them myself. Great flowers and a cheap way to do it!
