Bob does not do what Bob say he is going to do. DO NOT CONTRACT WITH THIS VENDOR. As the mother of the bride, I had to fix all of the centerpiece flowers at the reception. I will say, the flowers for the church were amazing, but the centerpieces for the table were missing flowers and wilted. He did not swag the head table, cake table or gift table. Luckily, I changed into my dress at the hall because I ran my rear off fixing everything he screwed up. Of course he would not answer the phone when we called. We dimmed the lights to avoid embarrassment. Please save yourself some heartache and spend the extra money for a reputable florist. It is not worth the heartache. DO NOT USE THIS VENDOR!

Yes the prices are great, as is the sales pitch, but that's where it ends...

I was pleased with the pictures in the showroom and the "show and tell" he did where we picked out the flowers that I wanted, right down to the specific variety and color. Only half of the flowers ended up being correct (colors and varieties were wrong), a frightening majority were wilted (all corsages for the Moms, grandmothers, and hostesses and the groom's boutonniere) and there were no votives for the centerpieces. I don't know how the incorrect types/colors of flowers can possibly happen when each one was specifically selected- and there is no excuse for wilted and brown flowers. For example, instead of burgandy roses my bouquets had red roses that were spray painted black on the edges- they looked dead. My archway that was to be "covered" in flowers was 90% brass.

I have been trying to contact them for the last month and they have not returned a call, voicemail, or email. At this point they are avoiding my calls and not even willing to discuss the many failures that they had.

I, like the other brides, was excited and thought my wedding flowers would be everything I had hoped, only to still be disappointed two months after my wedding. I don't care how much of a budget you are on, do not use this vendor! Had I known how terribly my flowers were going to turn out, I would have paid three times as much to use a different florist. I cannot even order the picture my photographer took of the wedding rings on the bouquet because of the dead roses.

Please, do not use them. If you do, you will regret it.

He's the biggest liar ever. He ruined our wedding. Lied about the centerpieces even though he made one for us before the wedding!!!! Flowers were all dead around the cake. Centerpieces had some dead flowers, flowers missing, holes in the arrangements so embarassing. Bride was crying at the head table and get this he FORGOT THE FLOWERS FOR THE HEAD TABLE!!! We called him and his goof ball employees and they wouldn't answer the phone, we were broken hearted and couldn't even eat our meals. I'll never forget this. We tried to get our money back and he promised but never gave us the money he promised us.
He's such a con artist dont' believe anyone who says he's good he probably wrote the positve reviews or his wife did.
We shoudl all report him to the Better Business Bureau I can' t beleive he's still in buiness

Big Bob was Awesome, he was kind, understanding, and was in great spirit every time I went to talk to him! The Flowers He did for my wedding were spectacular! I personally think that Viviano can not even come close to Big Bobs Flowers!!! And...the Price is so unbelivable it cant not even compare to anybody else!! I can not complain all my flowers were correct!! Colors and all,and if one color was off so what for God sake nobody knows but you! Its not the end of the world! He was there on time , him and his crew, he came to the church dressed in a SUIT and stayed there till the ceremony was over, and the gathered my flowers from the church to the hall, what other Flower shops would have that kind of service for the money!! All I have to say is I highly recommened him to everyone and I'm really disappointed by these comments made by others!!! How cruel can some people be!!! Bob is the best flower guy in town!!!

First of all this vendor made me cry about five times during my wedding day (Aug 9th) Very incompetent people! We were warned by this vendor about 3 months before our wedding. We actually brought a print out of this website to Uncle Bobs attention and he assured us that everything was going to be fine and wonderful and not to worry. And also thanked us for bringing this to his attention and respected us for saying something. But it was all a slap in the face.

Went to his shop the day before my wedding went over everything with him. And the next day all hell broke loose.
1. Forgot to put rose petals down the aisle
2. They were suposed to be there at 11:00 came at 12:15 (his workers said they were supossed be there at noon.)
3.Bouquets were missing Red Gerber daisies
4.Then the nightmare continued when we got to Pennas, NO VOTIVE CANDLES ON TABLES
5.Missing 2 centerpieces on Head Table
6.NO STREAM OF LIGHTS ON HEAD TABLE
7.Had a memorandum picture frame at the place card table Supposed to be petals and a candle NOTHING I LOST IT!!

That man should not be in business HE SUCKS!! WHAT A JOKE
He writes like a two year old Honestly he cant even read his own writing

AND NOT ONLY DOES PENNAS KNOW ABOUT WHAT A HORRIBLE JOB HE DOES BUT GREYSTONE GOLF CLUB DOES TO THE WORD IS OUT ! THIS VENDOR IS HORRIBLE
HOW MANY THINGS COULD YOU HONESTLY SCREW UP. I WILL NEVER FORGET I THINK ABOUT HIM AND I CRINGE! AND HE MAKES YOU THINK THAT HE IS GOING TO BE THERE DOING THE JOB NOOO HE HAS HIS LITTLE ELFS DO HIS CRAPPY JOB WELL I GUESS THATS ENOUGH HE KNOWS EXACTLY WHO WE ARE THANKS FOR THE HUMILATION

Seriously. Completely wrong flowers, wrong colors, FAKE!!!! flowers used in place of what was supposed to be real, vases used were not not uniform, wires poking out of the centerpieces, tape sticking out everywhere, very, very disappointed. They look like they were thrown together last second, shoved in a trunk and dumped on the tables. The owner offered up a solution which he promptly DID NOT follow through with, and was stuck with these flowers for the wedding day. I can't believe I was blown off like that.

The shop is a wreck. The owner has what appears to be homeless people working for him. One guy had his shirt inside out, covered in nasty stains, smelled bad, and here is the worst part- he had a big split in the crotch of his pants, he was sitting spread legged and reclined in a chair, with his junk hanging out. UGGHHHH so grossed out.

Now the delivery ladies were nice, looked actually appropriate for a business, and tried to console but just so much was wrong.

The prices are great, but so not worth it. Could never recommend this place to any bride. How disappointing. Did I mention FAKE FLOWERS?!?!?! So mad.

Uncle Bob is a fast talker - don't fall for it. We were very disappointed in the flowers - not at all what we were supposed to get - wrong colors, wilted flowers, browned roses - flowers that were promised to be included in centerpieces were not there - they were beautiful when we looked at them at the "pre-showing" but centerpieces turned out nothing like what we had been promised. Very sparse. I think he just uses whatever he can get ahold of that week, and the quality of flowers leaves a lot to be desired. Don't have your heart set on specific colors because we didn't get the colors we chose. It's almost impossible to get that many things wrong with any one wedding. Be smart - do not pay for everything up front - hold out final payment until you see the flowers at the reception first. It's hard to get the money back from him afterwards when you are dissatisfied - but if you don't really care about the quality or whether or not you get what you paid for - then go for it. Don't say I didn't warn you.

I will only speak for myself and the person who recommended me to him. He was amazing from start to finish. Everything was on time and on budget. No suprises. The only recommendation I would make is to make sure you see what you want. He was very flexible, just wants to know exactly what you want. I really dont know why people are giving this man poor reccomendations. Bob was amazing.

I booked with him for my May 06 wedding. My girlfriend also booked him for her wedding in august of this year. She was so unhappy with his service. He was late to the park, forgot one bridesmaid bouquet, they weren't the right flowers, some were wilted, some at the reception still had tags on them. Wrong flowers were delivered to the church. So I decided to cancel with him. I gave him eight months notice. On my contract it did not say the deposit was nonrefundable, nor was I ever told it was nonrefundable. When I asked for my deposit back, they told me they keep it until they book my date again. I said no way I was never told this. So now I have my whole family involved in this. Bob the owner finaly told us he would refund themoney after numerous phone calls to him. That was a month ago, and I have not received anything but the runaround. We will be seeking legal action if this is not settled. Please all brides, save yourself some hearache, this should be the best time of your life! DO NOT BOOK HIM!!! SPREAD THE WORD

I along with many other brides where really excited about American Floral. My October 2004 wedding a complete success because I decided to cancel with them.

I was also on the Knot.com when American Floral became the next big rage. The prices were amazing and his arrangements were beautiful. After meeting with them once I put down my $250 (completely refundable) deposit. Well, after girls started actually using them, the reviews started flowing in. They were 90% unfavorable. I still have the emails from brides that were horrified on their wedding day to find either the wrong flowers, horrible quality flowers or the worse. Realized that their flowers didn't even show. It was heart breaking but a good lesson. Please learn from us and do not be sucked in by these guys. They are friendly and fast talkers. I would not trust them. Their great prices are not worth the stress.

I was going to use American Floral for my August 2004 wedding.. I went to a few open houses and the owner was very friendly.. he seemed to be willing to do just about anything you wanted for such a reasonable price.. so I booked him and gave a $200 (per him, fully refundable) deposit.. after a few weeks of open houses that i attended the vibe started to get bad, brides were extremely unhappy and he always seemed to have excuse after excuse, blaming the brides for everything that went wrong.. this did not sit well with me, a business owner should not be bad-mouthing their paying customers to other customers, that is just bad business practice.. I started worrying if I had made the right decision or not and in the end figured out that I had to cancel this florist, nothing with him was going right and it was down right scary just a month or so before my wedding.. I never did get my deposit of $200 back after asking numerous times and being promised.. but I finally just figured it not worth it.. I am surprised this company is still around because from what I hear the reputation is steadily getting worse.. just a bad business practice here!

The only thing that might make you want to use this place is the prices.. but don't let them fool you!!!

Back in 2004 I attempted to use this vendor for my wedding flowers. He was all the rage on the knot.com...he had simple pricing ($50 for ANY centerpiece arrangement, no matter what type of flowers, etc.) He seemed too good to be true, and it turned out he was. He was actually a no show for one person's wedding, for another he showed up with wilted flowers which were not even the same type of flower he promised. Needless to say we cancelled and demanded our deposit back (which was refundable according to his paperwork). After weeks of hearing "it's in the mail", "I have it right here, I'll send it today" and on and on we finally showed up at his business and demanded our money back. This guy really seems like a scam artist, please do not use him!
