Disappointed Customer

New York, NY

#1 May 12, 2009
Petals Premier LLC in Teterboro fell short of my expectations for wedding flowers. Their portfolio of past work and pricing suggest that they are a top tier florist. However, on my wedding day, I was extremely disappointed with the size of my bouquets, especially given the prices that I paid -$250 for a bridal bouquet! The bridesmaid bouquets were so small that I thought they might be flower girl bouquets! When I showed the owner pictures after the wedding, he did not offer to refund any of my money to make things right. I am writing this review just to suggest that if anybody decides to work with them, to be sure to discuss these types of details to avoid being disappointed later on.
Best I have ever had

What a difference an attitude makes. I had the most amazing experience with Petals Premier. A very knowledgeable staff and a willingness to please. Adam and his designers are top notch and always go above and beyond. We got more than our moneys worth and he was everything the venue and he said he was. I would highly recommend them to anyone - noone compares in their area.

It is amazing to me how people have nothing better to do but post awful comments about their experiences. I too have used Petals Premier in the past for several NYC events and were so pleased that I recommended them to some friends in fashion circles in NYC and THEY TOO used Petals. I think the opinion of PR firms that recommmed Adam and his excellent staff to do their runway decor and floral for personal & celebrity events matters more than a person who really has no opinion considering they proably can't be pleased by ANYONE!!!
Amazing Experience

I have to say working with Adam and his amazing staff was the best decision I made. He made my life so much easier and exceeded my expectations. He held my hand and allowed me to call a million times with my crazy questions and constant changes. He was always there for me and I always got a call back. I don't know too many people that give out their personal cell phone numbers to us "crazy" brides, but he was wonderful. I am offended as a former client that the other "bride" would suggest that Adam made "sexual comments" to other vendors, he is a true gentleman, and it is obvious she has nothing better to say nasty comments. I know many people that have used him and were above and beyond pleased with the results. I would recommend him to anyone. If I could do it all over again, I wouldn't change a thing!! Thank you Adam....
these guys are on fire

I went to another one of my friends weddings this weekend and Petals Premier was the decorator again. I am amzed how each time they seem to outdo themselves. Everyone was talking about how fresh the flowers were and how nice the room looked. From the lighting to the linens and ofcourse the flowers - they were really an amazing sight. I cant wait to get married so I can use them myself!! They have a pretty awesome website too.
Disappointed too

I agree that Petals Premier fell short of my expectations. While the flowers were beautiful and Adam was friendly, I felt too that my bridesmaids' bouquets were a tad small. On top of that, not only did they deliver the wrong color of centerpieces to my wedding, there was another issue with the flowers that weren't done per our contract, not to mention that we had trouble finding our flowers that day (the guy just dropped them off in a corner of the ballroom and didn't tell anyone.) When I called to find out what happened a few times, Adam was "too busy." When I wanted to discuss some more, one of the staff was highly unpleasant. To those considering to hire Petals for business, I would reconsider.
Wedding Of My Dreams

I waited for this day my whole life and Adam and his staff made it happen.....Everything was just perfect. My flowers were just crazy and the centerpieces stunning. My guests couldn't stop talking about how beautiful the church was. There was no request too big or too small that was not fulfilled. His staff was so attentive, waiting patiently outside handing my guests the flowers from my reception. I couldn't have been happier, than the day of my wedding. It truly was the wedding of my dreams.
Best Value for the money

I was amazed at the flowers i received for my wedding. They were even nicer than the sample day!!! Adam and his staff went above and beyond - their customer service is second to none. We went to many other floral vendors and found Adam and his talented design staff were more than accomodating. From the initial consultation to the wedding day itself, they were the easiest to work with and came through in flying colors. I would highly reccomend their services for anyone getting married.

Petals Premier LLC in Teterboro was nothing short of amazing on my wedding day and the months that led up to it. Adam and his staff were so professional and the flowers were more than we expected and so much value for the money. They were patient and insightful - I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone looking for an event decorator for their wedding. They are surely the best value out there in northern new jersey

They win you over with charm and fabulous ideas and then drop you. Save yourself some sanity and go elsewhere.

Awful Exeperience

After paying THOUSANDS of dollars to this company we were extremely disappointed!!! Our centerpieces were wilted, the groomsmen's flowers were not what we ordered, & we were missing many items. Don't let Adam fool you, he is extremely nice and wilol yes you to death until he has your money. FYI he will not be there on your day if it is a Saturday so don't let him fool you with a hopeful promise. Not apologetic one bit that we were unsatisfied with his service. Now all of a sudden he is too busy to discuss. My friend had the same experience and warned me. Should have taken her word. DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY if you want to be happy on your wedding day!!!!!
Thrilled Beyond Belief

I have to say I read what these Bitter Brides said about Adam and I have to disagree wholeheartedly. Not only was he there every step of the way but his staff is amazing. I knew he wouldn't be there on Saturday, and he never told me he would. I have other friends who have gotten married on Saturday as well and no one needed "hand holding". His staff is quite capable of handeling it all. I had an amazing day and lovely flowers were provided by Petals Premier LLC. I would use them again in a heartbeat. I was thrilled beyond my wildest dreams.
Go elsewhere

Although the centerpieces were pretty and so were some other decorations, they were not what we discussed. The color was off and the petals down the aisle were lame. His staff were MIA when needed and he didn't answer his cell phone as needed during this time either - luckily our venue assisted. He is nice and funny but has quite a cocky attitude and can get very nasty once he has your money. please, go elsewhere.....
DO NOT GO HERE

Danbury, CT couldn't have said it better. This guy just wants your money, gives you the run around about how you won't be unhappy. YOU WILL! Don't take these reviews lightly, I wish we didn't and went elsewhere. These reviews are VERY helpful, for such a so-called "great florist", there shouldn't be ANY OR NEARLY AS MANY "bitter brides". Hackensack, would you be a bitter car buyer if you spent thousands of dollars on a new car and it turned out to be a lemon????? I sure would be!
Do your homework brides! Find a florist that has NO bad reviews!!!!
What a bitchfest

Wow - you guys gave nothing better to do??? bashing a good business because you were TOO HIGH maintenance it sounds like........ every other review everywhere about this guy is top notch - he won The Knot Top Pick for 2010 for flowers!!! He was amazing at our wedding as well and we spent 5 figures on flowers alone!!!!! Karma comes back to get you - get on with your miserable lives and leave an honest business man alone. 300 or something like that events he does a year and you are the only one bitching??? Sounds like you are more the problem - would love to see your review on your photographer!

My photographer and every other vendor was fantastic. I am not high maintenance - merely want to advise and warn the other brides to go in with eyes wide open. I too thought he was going to be fabulous and saw he had won the knot 2010 but i've come to realize that means absolutely nothing. Adam is deceptive and a miserable person who treats his customers with nothing but disrespect when he doesn't get his way.

Boutineres were wilted for us as well and petals on aisle and cake were really lame too. He forgot a centerpiece too - poor planning on Adam's part. What florist messes up like that?! That's a major mistake.
Cancelled Wedding

Old Bridge, NJ

#21 Aug 18, 2010
My daughter's wedding was unfortunately called off 4 wks before the date. I called Adam and gave notice of same, which was 31 days prior to the event. I was looking for my deposit to be refunded, as it was prior to the 30 days notice. I was informed by Adam that "according to the contract,HE was able to keep the deposit as it was more than 30 days notice before the event" He also informed me at this phone conversation, that , oh yeah, he had since had the wording changed . I guess his lawyer was drunk when he drew up the contract! Here's how it read:" Should Client cancel the event between the date of is agreement and thirty dates prior to the event (inclusive) then Petals Premier shall be entitled to retain all deposits. Adam admitted to me that it was poorly worded,BUT "that does me no good". He also admitted that the contract was changed , since my situation made him aware of this poorly worded phrase. Shame on me for not reading EVERY word TWICE, but SHAME ON YOU ADAM, for being such a low life business man, that preys on people in such a dark hour!! You know the saying, " They'll tell two friends, and so on and so on" GIRL AND MOM'S OF THE BRIDES, READ EVERYTHING NO MATTER HOW NICE THEY SEEM. THAT CHANGES ONCE THEY HAVE YOUR MONEY!!!!
