    Beautiful flowers!

    I didn鈥檛 get a chance to meet and discuss floral designs before the wedding. I sent Ralph a picture of what I wanted and let him go to work! I didn鈥檛 see the flowers until the wedding day. I trusted him and the results were amazing! The flowers were beautiful! More beautiful than I ever imagined!! He鈥檚 a pro!

    Florals in Canmore

    I was fortunate to be introduced to Ralph at Blue Lake Florals through our wedding coordinator. I had told her what I was looking for, the budget I wanted to keep within, and wanting to keep it to a Canmore vendor knowing that we didn't want to worry about trouble with delivery due to weather. Would definitely recommend Blue Lake Florals, I was very happy with our bouquets!

    Beautiful flowers for winter wedding

    Our flowers for our winter wedding were beautiful and they looked exactly like what we had previously discussed. The flowers were dropped off at the time and location previously determined, and Ralph was always easy to communicate with.

    The only issue we had was with the wrist corsages as the flowers fell off pretty quick. But otherwise the bouquets, and boutonni猫res we ordered were gorgeous and fit our theme/color palette perfectly.

    Not professional. Very disappointed with flowers. Stressful experience.

    Though they were able to accommodate my budget, I was still expecting a nice bridal bouquet for the amount I paid. My flowers were wilted and not in the style I thought I was getting. I thought i was getting a modern, loose bouquet and ended up with a little round ball. That's not the worst part though. The communication was poor regarding pickup or delivery. I woke up on my wedding day unsure of what was happening with my flowers. The day before my wedding I emailed them because I hadn't received a confirmation email with the delivery time (I was promised delivery)-- I was told in their reply that they would be away from 10:30am on because they had a big wedding happening that day and it would be nice if I could pick up my flowers before then (even though I was supposed to have them delivered!!).....I called the morning of my wedding, still unsure how or if I was getting my flowers... someone who didn't really seem to know what was going on and couldn't speak English answered and asked me to send them a text message so they could translate what I was saying. They dropped my bouquet off at my hotel lobby.

    My flowers were perfect!

    I came to Ralph not having any idea what I wanted besides purple. He was able to take the scraps of information I gave him and turned them into something beautiful! I was beyond pleased with what I received and he was so easy to deal with.

    Lovely and great value!

    I am so happy that I found Blue Lakes to do our bouqets for our wedding. We went with one bridal bouqet and three smaller bridesmaids ones and they were all lovely. Ralph's responses were quick, drop off for delivery was exactly on time and I found them to be excellent value for money in the Canmore area. Highly recommend!

    Beautiful, fresh bouquets

    I got a bridal bouquet, 3 bridesmaids bouquets and 5 boutonnieres, a cake topper and they were all gorgeous. The flowers were bright and were very cohesive. The bouquets all lasted weeks after the wedding. All the bouquets got delivered in classic glass vases so they stayed fresh and I used them as centrepieces as we only had 3 tables (COVID wedding) so it was perfect!

    My only reason for not giving 5/5, is i asked for a cascading bouquets which he did, but the stems were left SO LONG that it was impossible to hold them in a way to show off the shape. I was hoping to not see the stems at all but they were very long and very noticeable.

    Would hire again!

    Cannot recommend Ralph enough! He is amazingly Responsive. I changed the plan a few times and he was able to accommodate my every request. The flowers were stunning. The delivery and set up was coordinated beautifully.
