Fourth Appointment: Branching Out The fourth consultation was with Debbie of Branching Out. She was hilarious. Super bubbly personality and very knowledgable. Her work is also in every DFW bridal magazine, and you guessed it-stunning.
Here are the prices we received from early 2013: * Bridal Bouquet: $175 * Bridesmaids' Bouquet: $75 * Petite Bouquet for Mothers/Grandmothers: $35 * Cocktail Table Centerpieces: $35 * Flower for Cake: $80 * Guest Table Centerpieces: Ranged from $70 to $200 each
Again, awesome. I loved her, her work, and what she had to offer. Her prices were the exact same or just below the other florists we visited. I was just about to go with her, but decided to give the florists that my DJ, Adam Wilmore of LeForce Entertainment, recommended. It turned out the our fifth and final consultation was my favorite. However, if you give our florist a try, and it's just not your cup of tea, my second choice would most definitely be Debbie of Branching Out!
Now FINALLY, the florist we chose... DRUMROLL PLEASE!

Throughout the seven or more months of working with her, I unfortunately changed my mind a lot. But Kristen totally rolled with it, and was very understanding. When I added a flower girl and bridesmaid, she was quick to update our quote and prices, and sent the new information promptly to me. When I started second guessing our centerpieces, she offered other suggestions. She was also available via text-which is such a relief when you are a stressed out bride! If I saw a centerpiece somewhere else that I liked, whether it be in a magazine, online, or at another friend's wedding, I could text her the image, and within 12 hours, she would respond with prices and names of the flowers used.
She is truly understanding of budgets, and does her absolute best to work with the number you give her. Kristen and her staff made the "day of" preparations a breeze. Everyone was on time, and set everything up beautifully. I am thrilled and so pleased that we went with her! I cannot stress enough how much I loved her work! In fact, we loved her work so much, that my mom even ordered a surprise bouquet from her to be delivered to my office for me on my birthday! If you need flowers for any occasion, she is your girl! Give her a call, and tell her Cait sent you 😉
