Q. I was going to DIY my wedding flowers because I am on a tight budget... why should I use you instead?
A. You would be shocked at the range of budgets that we work with. We have done full weddings (bouquets, bouts, centerpieces, etc) with budgets of $450.00 and others with budgets of $9,500.00. We get TRUE wholesale (not faux wholesale like fiftyflowers or sams club) so we have a lot more wiggle room than a Bride does. Tell us your budget, your colors and show us what your "look" is and we will show you what we can do for you! (read our reviews here and on TheKnot and you will see how many couples are thrilled with our affordability and flexibility)
Q. I waited too long to book a florist... now I can not find one. How far in advance are you booked?
A. It completely depends... but you won't know without asking. Feel free to TEXT Rachel at: 1-845-281-1364 for the fastest possible answer. Sometimes we are booked 2 years in advance, and other times we have gotten calls from DIY Brides 48 hours before the wedding... (but every single wedding we do looks polished and beautiful.)
Q. Are all of the photos on your website and on here work that The Centerpiece Floral Design uses?
A. YES, YES, YES! There is a local woman that steals our photographs on a regular basis... as well as lifting our written information for her own website and flyers. We urge all couples to google image search images in florists, photographers and make-up artists portfolios because a LOT of stolen work is out there.
Q. What areas do you serve?
A. We serve MUCH of the tri-state area... NEW JERSEY, NEW YORK and PENN. We also work in areas of CONNECTICUT and MASSACHUSETTS. We ship silk florals worldwide and have also shipped fresh pieces.
Q. Can I hire you for my friend's Bridal Shower?
A. ABSOLUTELY! In fact, some Brides like to pass our name along to the party planning the bridal shower because that way we are able to give a "sneak peek" to the Bride so she can see a preview of her wedding day stems!
Q. I love flowers - but I have a small budget... my XXX wants to chip in... how do we do that?
A. We actually get asked this a LOT. A lot of Mother's want to upgrade their daughters wedding flowers... the way that we do this depends on the parties involved. Sometimes the gifter wants the couple to be surprised, other times it is very public. If there is something you want, but is outside of your budget (IE: You would love a massive floral archway piece, but you don't want to take flowers out of your bouquets for the archway) let people know that are bugging you for gift ideas. We will speak with them and let them know what areas you would love to have either upgraded, or pieces you are not getting, but would love. We will work with whatever their budget is... just like we will with you!
Q. What are your hours?
A. We are available every day. We do try to take Mondays off, but should you text us we will text you back ASAP.
More about us...
As part of an industry saturated with florists, we knew we had to do more than offer brides yet another menu of cookie cutter arrangements and a few consultations if we wanted to succeed. All too often, a minimal cash deposit merely promotes a prospective bride into an order number which is revisited several weeks before the wedding date. At The Centerpiece, you are hiring floral consultants and designers, and we believe that a bride is entitled to something much more than a carefully measured business transaction. We want to give you an experience that will stretch the limits of your imagination without stretching your budget. Whether your order is as simple as a single bridal bouquet or as complex as full ceremony to cocktail to reception décor, you will enjoy the journey – and it is a journey.
We want to know you – after all, your wedding should be the actualization of your vision. We want to know what you’re imagining. When you find yourself daydreaming about your wedding day (and all brides do), what type of bouquet is being framed by your beautiful gown? As you take that first imaginary step down the aisle, what colors, shapes, or flowers do you see? Are they completely natural blooms, or are they sprinkled with small prisms of light or even feathers? We’ll ask you to look through wedding magazines and search the internet for images that you absolutely love – regardless of budgetary constraints – so that we can grasp your vision. You’ll be given beautiful photo layouts showcasing each of the elements you gravitate towards, and we will ALWAYS work within your budget. If you find yourself constantly returning to photos featuring complex and expensive exotic blooms that would destroy your budget, we will provide creative techniques to incorporate and highlight those elements. Yes, it can be done. You’ll pick, you’ll chose, and you may even change direction, but we’ll be with you all the way. Whether you adore the popular rustic elegance of tiny pearls, burlap, and sunflowers, or traditionally elegant silver, crystal, and rose towers (and everything in between), we’ll make it happen – and it won’t look like anyone else’s work.
Get in touch with us today!

Flexible, Brilliant, Beautiful
Our wedding went topsy turvy with covid and Rachel became part of our new (flying by the seat of our pants yet trying to make our small wedding the real deal) plan. The flowers were incredible! You can easily see from the photos that the flowers are beautiful, but Rachel kept our budget appropriately small for our new intimate wedding and rolled with all of the madness amazingly with the best results. Despite little notice for the actual date and changes like a last minute arch addition, it was spectacular. Having her setup the tables was DEFINITELY worth it as well, she did a great job of making everything so elegant and immersively "wedding!" It was a truly treasured day.Sent on 07/13/2020

Works MAGIC and goes Beyond Beyond for you!
Book Rachel. Book her right now. Of all the incredible vendors I booked, Rachel is the one who texted me night and day the week of the wedding as flowers came in, making sure they were just what I wanted. Rachel is the one who worked with our teensy budget and pulled off MAGIC. Rachel is the one who, on the day, when we realized about an hour before the ceremony that the fake candles I bought wouldn't fit in the lanterns, starting ripping out literal pieces of metal off the lantern bases to make it work. She ALSO created a decadent piece for our sweetheart table, AND added flowers in beautiful little hanging vases behind our ceremony set up - BOTH OF THOSE JUST BECAUSE SHE HAD EXTRA AND WANTED TO MAKE MY DAY PERFECT! Literally not part of the contract, not something I asked for, just something she saw and wanted to make special. I am in AWE of her talent and over the moon for my flowers, but what sets her so far above and beyond is her customer service and the energy she puts into making your day great. I could not recommend her more highly. I am so, so happy I chose Centerpiece and you will be too. Thank you, Rachel, for everything!Sent on 03/24/2020

Beautiful and affordable floral design!!
After getting laughed out of other floral shops for my budget not even meeting their minimum, I found Centerpiece Floral/Rachel W and after talking with her for just 30 minutes I knew she would give unparalleled service and vision to my wedding day. Working with Rachel was just a dream. When it comes to floral design, she is incredibly thorough, imaginative and knowledgeable. She was so easy to communicate with via text, email and phone calls as we continued to brainstorm and evolve ideas based on what would be in season and in budget. I wanted to have black accents in my bouquet and Rachel took on this challenge with such enthusiasm, painstakingly experimenting with black floral options, and being so smart and savvy in finding the right flowers in season that fit with our look and our budget. Her enthusiasm and dedication for the pursuit of the perfect bloom was one of my most favorite parts of the wedding planning process. The week of the wedding, Rachel was texting me pictures of the bouquets and arrangements to make sure I liked the way everything looked or we could correct in real time. I never had any critiques, just fun excitement from getting all the previews! All of the floral arrangements turned out stunningly gorgeous. When I saw my bridal bouquet, it was like seeing my personality come to life in flowers. Rachel was just magnificent.Sent on 10/20/2018
