I used Bou-Quet for my wedding two weeks ago and had a very, very, positive experience.
Sally was so fantastic, along with the rest of the team. She was kind, excited for my wedding, and helpful! A lot of vendors for weddings are used to people getting married and it doesn't phase them as it's part of their daily role. Sally shared in my excitement about the wedding which was really nice!
Bou-Quet was always responsive when I reached out and were very flexible with me. I had a lot of requests and working with Bou-Quet from miles away was not difficult at all. It was beyond easy.
I provided them with photos of what I wanted (which actually changed often because I couldn't decide) and they kept up with my requests and provided me with exactly what I wanted for both my bouquet and my centerpieces. I was SOO pleased with what Bou-Quet provided. Many people commented on how gorgeous and elegant the flowers were. They were spectacular!
I would definitely recommend Bou-Quet to anyone looking for flowers for their St. John wedding!
Thanks Bou-Quet for all you did for me!
I used this quaint flower shop in Cruz Bay for my Bridal and Bridesmaids bouquets after a recommendation from our local wedding consultant. I had quite a few email and 1 phone conversation with Felipe, the shop designer, about exactly what I was looking for in a bouquet. I sent pictures of what I was looking for (no colorful flowers, very organic-raw tropical greens) and he understood what I was asking for. The bouquets came on the day of the wedding and were beautiful. They even offered to let me use some of their glass bottles for arrangements had I chosen to purchase additional flowers.
Only a couple small hiccups with this shop. I called 2 weeks in advance to give my card number for the deposit and the deposit was never taken out. I was told the flowers would be delivered and on the day of the wedding I still hadn't heard anything. I called the shop, emailed my address and number, and called again. I did receive an email response from Felipe that morning saying he would pass on my information to the woman who would be delivering the flowers, but as the wedding approached and we had no flowers we called again. At that point we reached the shop who said "oh, they are ready to be picked up anytime." They were very nice when we picked them up; I just felt it was a little disorganized.
As Owner of the Hillcrest Guest House, St. John, US Virgin Islands, I got a request to assist in Planning a Wedding Proposal. This included a lovely flower display and a display of petals on the fiancé's bed.
From the Bride, " I had no clue that he was going to propose while we were on vacation. He actually contacted the owner and asked her to set up a romantic setting for us as we arrive. There were beautiful tropical flowers, champagne and the most beautiful table setting. I was so surprised! I am so grateful that they were able to set up such a wonderful surprise. The room was beautiful and I had a wonderful stay. We plan on bringing our children (when we have them) to vacation here and continuing the tradition of making this our yearly vacation."
So I reached out to this vendor after finding them online for my destination wedding to St. John. Online, they looked like they created bouquets exactly what I was looking for. I was very specific about what I wanted and thought my request was being heard. I even sent pictures of bouquets that I found online to provide examples of what I was looking for.
I was very disappointed with the final product. The one thing they got correct was the colors. I was getting married in a tropical location and wanted flowers that were more island type or 'tropical' in nature... what did I get? ROSES!! Don't get me wrong, I love roses... I mean who doesn't, but hey, I can get roses in the states anytime. Although the flowers were pretty, it was not what I said I wanted or asked for.
I also notified them that the boutinerre for the groom needed to be very light in weight since the material of his shirt was quite thin and he would not be wearing a jacket. Additionally, I told them that the shirt was white so we needed something of color so that it would stand out and be visable. What did we get? A big white/ivory colored, heavy, single rose bud. We couldn't even use it because the material of the shirt couldn't handle the weight. VERY disappointing.
They were fairly slow to respond to my emails and twice I had to remind them of slight/minor changes in my order.
Bear caution when using this vendor.
Gayle at Sally's Bou-quet is very friendly and provides better pricing than the one other flower option on the island of St. John. The bouquet and boutonniere that I received were beautiful and of great quality. Gayle listened to what I asked for and gave me something even better! The flowers were delivered straight to my hotel room too. Thanks, Gayle!
Based on a glowing recommendation from someone who lives on the island, I called Gayle to do the flowers, arch and chairs at my beach wedding. She made things very easy for me. I just told her my color scheme and gave her pictures to use as inspiration. I was blown away when I walked onto the beach and saw the setup! The arch was way nicer than I was expecting... a beautiful, thick, white 2 column arch... not the thin flimsy bamboo arches I was used to seeing at other beach weddings. She has a picture of it up on her website. She adorned it with beautiful greenery and flowers. She did a wonderful beach setup with chairs, chair covers and sashes. It was a perfect setup, and I was amazed at what she pulled off within my small budget. It really added to the wonderful backdrop of Trunk Bay. I highly recommend Sally's Bou-Quet to anyone having a wedding on St. John.
