Think twice before booking them for your wedding!! 4/27/2010

One thing I have learned, too late, is to tell them what you want to spend and how many pieces you need before you agree to anything. I dealt mostly with the husband, who refused to answer my questions on prices again and again. I tried to order long stem roses for the centerpieces that I was going to make and after describing it to him, he told me that they would not look right and I should consider letting them arrange my centerpieces. I had thirteen tables, and this wasn't an option. I ended up buying long stem roses from the grocery store -Meijer- and arranging them the night before the wedding. They looked beautiful and costed less than $100 - less than he wanted to charge me and swore that they made no money off of the roses, that they had no mark-up. I picked colors and told him how many pieces I needed and was told they would call me with a total in a week. This didn't happen until about four weeks later and only after my father called and was treated very rudely by the husband who owns the shop. I had a bride's bouquet, 2 bridesmaid bouquets, 2 mother's nosegays, and 6 bouttonieres total. I was quoted a price for the bouttonieres - $10 each. When I finally got an answer on the total it was dangerously close to the wedding, too close to switch florists. The total was $850. I felt that this was outrageous for what I got. How do women with four or five bridesmaid's afford it? Clearly the cost was all in the 3 bouquets and 2 nosegays, because everything else totaled $60. The bouquets were beautiful, but I would have been just as happy with a cheaper alternative. If you decide to go with this shop, I highly advise telling them a strict number you want to spend before you go any further with them. They will take advantage of you. more

Terrible customer service 2/23/2009

They were quite rude to me over the phone. Did not make my delivery and never called to tell me. I had to call 2 days later. Told me (after the delivery wasn't made, not ahead of time) they will not even try to deliver unless they get an answer at the phone number provided, and they will not leave a message. I will not be doing business with them again and will not recommend them to anyone. more

Friendly Service 8/14/2005

The owners of Larkin Floral are a nice local family. They are always pleasant and have a good selection of flowers and gifts. I have had several nice arrangements made up. Their location has changed a few times in the last couple of years, but it is the same people in the same general area. They have something to offer for everyone and every occasion. more
