Information about Blooms & Beyond
Blooms & Beyond, based in Aldergrove, British Columbia, is owned and operated by certified designer Barb Konrad. Barb’s love for arranging flowers springs from her innate fondness for colours. Her journey from clinical (she worked as a medical office assistant for over 26 years) to aesthetical has been eventful and enlightening. Before establishing Blooms & Beyond, Barb had formal training in floral design from the University of the Fraser Valley and gained a wealth of knowledge by working at a busy flower shop for two years. Her style is a diverse mix of classic, eclectic, modern, preppy, rustic, rustic, vintage, country, glamorous, nautical, romantic, and tropical elements. Barb is a forager who will gather her exquisite stock from different sources.

Barb was simply amazing. She was so personable and she nailed my vision for the bouquets. The color pallette was spot on and she did it all within our budget. She even came, delivered the flowers and personally congratulated us.

It was such a pleasure to have Barb create our flowers for our big day. Just twelve short days before our wedding, we had a family member offer to cover the cost of our flowers. Of course, I figured that was not nearly enough time to order everything. I sent Barb a message and ... View more the following day we arranged a phone consultation and that evening, we had our quote. The quote on the flowers alone had me surprised as I was expecting it to be much more costly than it was! She created five bridesmaid bouquets, my bridal bouquet, two corsages, three children's boutonnieres, and seven boutonnieres for the groom, groomsmen and fathers. When she came to deliver the flowers and place the corsages and bout's at our venue on the day of the wedding, we realized we had forgotten to tell her that we added a last minute groomsman. Instead of him going without a boutonniere, she took a few of them, and crafted him one in minutes. We were so impressed! Thank you, Barb, for everything. Your work was absolutely breathtaking!

Barb at Blooms and Beyond was exceptional to work with. She met me in person to discuss my vision for the flowers at my wedding and worked tirelessly to stay true to the style and appearance. Due to the unusually hot summer some of the flowers we had originally discussed were not ... View more available however Barb was able to source and acquire similar flowers within my budget. I would recommend Blooms and Beyond to anyone looking for beautiful and affordable flowers.
Barb was amazing! Before we even met she was willing to answer all of my questions. When my fiancé and I went for our consultation at her house she was so welcoming and was very prepared. She had tons of books of flowers, example of shape of bouquets she does, albums of bouquets ... View more she has done in the past and a huge tray full of different accents she can add to your bouquet and ribbons and diamantes you can choose from. I had no idea there was so many things to choose. She asked for our budget and helped us keep within it. If I wanted a flower that was too expensive for my budget she would tell me that and suggest other flowers that look similar. Barb got us our quote a few days after meeting with her. Her prices were very reasonable and fair From the beginning I really wanted black center anemones and Barb told me they would not be in season at the time of our wedding. I was so heartbroken. Through all of our emails leading up to the wedding I kept going back to the anemones. She said how about we incorporate some fake ones. She told me no one would know any different that they were fake. Our main wedding flowers was suppose to be dahlias. A few weeks before the wedding she found out she would not be able to get them because they all bloomed early. She suggested some things that will give a similar look and I trusted Barb and gave her creative power. On the wedding day she was there long before the girls and I arrived at the church pinning boutonnieres and putting corsages on our families. She came up to the limo and handed off our bouquets to us. I was so pleased when I saw my bouquet. It was better then what I imagined. It was so me! The fake anemones looked real! No one knew any different. She then went to the reception venue and set up the flowers there. Everything looked great! The big arrangement she made for the head table was perfect. It was much smaller then what she can do but I did not want something big. It really completed the look!
