I am very happy with my experience with RichMar Florist. I contacted them pretty late in the game as far as wedding planning is concerned, and Jonathan got back to me immediately and scheduled a time that was convenient for me to come in to their main warehouse in Allentown. I was given a quick tour and some time to look around upstairs, where they had several rooms full of suggested wedding arrangements for inspiration. I wasn't totally sure what I wanted, but Jonathan took the time out to go over what my options were. He was familiar with the wedding venue and was very honest with me about what I did NOT need to purchase based upon the layout of the place. We sat down with a book full of pictures of the different varieties of roses. I was amazed with the large number of choices, and was able to come up with exactly what I had in mind for the bouquets and the bouttonieres. I also needed two larger arrangements for the pillars used for the ceremony. I saw something in one of the rooms upstairs that gave me an idea, and as vague as my description seemed, those arrangements were EXACTLY what I had envisioned. They definitely are very experienced and passionate about what they do. Jonathan was very friendly and very accommodating. I would recommend RichMar Florist to anyone!
On Monday, February 13 I ordered flowers for my 90 year old grandmother through 1-800 Flowers who contracted Rich Mar. The flowers were attempted to be delivered that day, however my grandmother did not yet have a room number assigned. By 12pm a room number was provided to the florist. Delivery was never reattempted, though I paid for same day delivery. The next day at around 3pm, the flowers were delivered - with two names missing from the card. The flower arrangement that I paid $75 looks droopy and sad, it had four roses in the entire arrangement, whereas the picture had at least a dozen. Disappointing is an understatement - highway robbery is more accurate. When I saw that the two names were missing, I called Rich Mar directly. The man that I spoke with said that they would get another bunch out in the morning with the two names that they had left off, and blamed 800-Flowers for the mix up. At 4:30 the next day - still no flowers. I called and the less than understanding lady told me that the office was closed. I called 800-flowers to ask them about the names on the cards and the correctly relayed back to me. I have ordered from 800-flowers 20 times in the last two years, and this has never happened, the only thing different was Rich Mar. They completely messed up. I would never recommend them. I can't believe that somebody would trust them with their wedding when they couldn't get names on a card correct and completely lied to me about redelivering. DISHONEST and INCOMPETENT.
I've ordered floral arrangements from Richmar for both business & personal events for 10+ years and have always found them to be very professional, and their products are outstanding.
I have used Patti's Petals for over 15 years and have had excellent experiences each time!!!! Amazing high end arrangements available at 1/3rd the cost of 1 800 florists!
