Hi, I’m Jackie Levine, the wedding consultant here at Central Square Florist. Getting married in Boston and looking for wedding flowers? I’m your girl. At Central Square Florist we do weddings of all sizes and budgets. I breakdown some wedding situations below

“We’re getting married at Cambridge City Hall and all we need is a bridal bouquet and boutonniere”
We’re the closest florist to Cambridge City Hall located just two blocks away. When you get off the MBTA red line you’ll be right in front of Central Square Florist. Pick up your bridal bouquet and boutonniere order and head on down to your big day at City Hall!
“I just need bridal party flowers. I’m worried I can’t afford centerpieces”
It’s completely ok to be on a budget. Some girls come in to meet with me and are concerned they can’t afford centerpieces. Centerpieces can be made at all price points. Pinterest features a lot of huge, stunning centerpieces. Many of these centerpieces are beautiful, but don’t let these overshadow other types of centerpieces that are available. I’ll work with you and your budget to come up with something beautiful for your special day. Your tables are an important aspect of your wedding reception!
“I love peonies, but they aren’t in season when I’m getting married”
Peonies are generally in season from May-July. Other times of year they are available out of Holland for a higher price than during their season. May-July produces some beautiful peonies and it is truly the best time of year for them. So, what do you do if you love peonies, but they simply aren’t in season when you are getting married and you don’t want to pay the hefty Holland price? This is a common situation that I am familiar with. I’ll work with you to create a bouquet that features flowers that have the roundness of peonies and the color-scheme. There are alternatives!

“I wanted garden roses for my wedding, but the regular roses are more in my budget”
There is this amazing rose called the ‘Free Spirit’ rose. This rose is absolutely gorgeous and completely opens up like a garden rose. It is the most popular rose I use in weddings. The rose has shades of orange/coral/pink and is stunning. I’ve included a couple of photos of the rose below. This was for a recent August wedding at the Sheraton Commander in Harvard Square.
