- - - - - Frequently Asked Questions - - - - -
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.

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.

Hiring them will be the best decision you will make. The prices quoted by every other florist made me give up on having flowers at my wedding but I took a shot with Rachel and gave her my small budget. I was surprised that she could even work with me nevermind everything she was able to provide for the price. We paid for the delivery and setup (great choice) which took soooooo much pressure off us the weekend of the wedding. She had great little surprises like including lego pieces in my bouquet and my husbands bout (we're huge fans of legos). I gave her almost full creative freedom (I think I provided colors and approved things) and I fully recommend you do as well. During the week of the wedding she was amazing. She sent me pics of different blooms she saw to get my approval, even sent me a few different bouquet options the day before so I knew what to expect. She was on time the day of the wedding and truly professional. Even with my limited budget she managed to get me peonies and some of my favorite flowers for the wedding. Hire her, pay for delivery and setup (it's very reasonably priced), and give her full creative control.

Look no further you have found your florist. Seriously, Rachel should be doing celebrity weddings she is that good. If you are looking for someone who genuinely cares about making your wedding beautiful, someome who wants to hear all your crazy pinterest ideas, someone who will understand the picture in your head that you can't put into words, and someone who will work with any budget giving you fantastic value for your dollar, Rachel from the centerpiece floral is your girl.
From the moment I called the centerpiece I was treated with respect and excitement. Before I even signed the contract Rachel put so much work into showing me what kind of flowers she could use for my wedding that fit my budget. As the wedding got closer I heard from her even more frequently. The emails and phone calls exchanged were countless, it amazed me the detail she puts in to her work. She really loves weddings and flowers, it is extremely clear in her work (and emails time stamped at 2am).
I had a unique fall bouquet, it came out better then I could ever hope for. She found the most beautiful flowers that fit the look I was looking for. Everyone at the wedding adored the flowers. Rachel really works hard to find the flowers of your dreams. I really loved purple anemones, they were hard to find the week of my wedding and only 2 growers in the USA had them, Rachel was able to get them for me, and they were beautiful.
Rachel's excitment over flowers really made me excited about flowers. The week before the wedding she texted me some pictures of flowers and it just really added a lot of good excitment.
Also the amount that she cares about the bride and the couple is just amazing. She cared to get to know me and incorporated our elephant theme into the flowers.
The centerpiece floral is much more then a flower company it is someone to share your wedding excitment and dreams with.
The owners of The Centerpiece Floral Design graciously and eloquently share their knowledge of flowers and wedding etiquette. An asset to any couple planning a wedding.
Rachel from The Centerpiece does fantastic work. Everything that I have seen her create has been inventive, creative, and unique. She is the perfect choice if you want your wedding to reflect your personality. She is also great to work with and will do everything in her power to make your big day fabulous. I highly reccommend her!
Creativity in floral arrangements for Bridal and any special Occasion! Professional, and cares about her clients!
