Q Q. I don't know anything about making wedding flower choices. Can you help me?

A. Absolutely! Review our web site to get ideas. Make an appointment to meet with one of George Thomas Florist’s Wedding Consultants. Ask questions. Get answers. We are happy to listen to you and will offer suggestions and direction. Your wedding is important to us. You are important to us. We want you to feel confident and comfortable with your decisions, and we want to help you make your special day beautiful and memorable.

Q Q. Are all flowers available year round?

A. While many flowers are available throughout the year, there are those that bloom during specific seasons. For example, sunflowers, heather, tulips and lily of the valley are seasonal. Other flowers, such as roses and carnations, are readily available yearlong. Our Wedding Consultants know which flowers are available to you. They are happy to show you your choices of wedding flowers and make recommendations for your special day.

Q Q. I live out-of-state and will be coming back to Indiana for my wedding. How can I best plan for the flowers while I'm out-of-state?

A. Our Wedding Consultants at George Thomas Florist frequently work with out-of-state brides. When you know you are coming to town, make an appointment to visit us. A George Thomas Florist Wedding Consultant will work with you to confirm your choices. You will come in again or phone us two weeks prior to your wedding to finalize your order.

Q Q. When will the flowers be delivered?

A George Thomas Florist trained personnel deliver wedding flowers when and where you need them. Our timely, courteous delivery staff can deliver to your home, church and reception. Do you want all the wedding bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres delivered to the church along with the ceremonial decorations? In that case the wedding flowers arrive one hour prior to the ceremony. Do you need the wedding bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres delivered to your home for photographs? We can do that, too, when you need them. Wedding reception flowers are delivered to the hall or club as agreed upon. Whatever you need... we deliver.

Q Q. What are your guarantees for flower availability, freshness and substitutions?

A. During the ordering process, our Wedding Consultants inform you of the wedding flower choices that will be available to you at the time of your wedding. When your arrangements are prepared, our design professionals use only the freshest, best quality flowers to create your arrangements. If a substitution becomes necessary, we notify the bride. We have many varieties of flowers at all times from which to choose a substitute. You will always get a flower that is comparable to your original selection and complementary to your wedding flower arrangement.

Q Q. How do the flowers stay fresh? Will they last all day?

A. We are frequently asked these questions. Based on the types of arrangements you choose, we advise you how to care for your particular selections as well as give you general flower care information. For example, a hand tied bouquet should rest in a water source, like a glass or a vase, when you are not carrying it. When you receive your flowers, it is best to handle them as little as possible before the ceremony. Flowers are delicate and naturally sensitive to bruises and temperature changes. Do not expose your wedding flowers to extreme temperatures. At 32 degrees or less, flowers freeze and become discolored and damaged when they are returned to a warmer temperature. Wearing coats over corsages or boutonnieres will crush them. It is best to transport your wedding flowers in the container in which they are delivered. A little care and common sense will insure that your wedding flowers stay beautiful all day.

Q Q. How do I make an appointment with George Thomas Florist?

A. It is easy. Simply e-mail us at weddings@georgethomas.com or call us at 317-353-9161. We will schedule a time that is convenient for you. The appointment takes about 1 hour and is free of charge.

Q Q. Does George Thomas Florist provide non-floral decorations to help embellish the church and hall or club?

A. Yes, George Thomas Florist’s wedding consultants can show you a variety of additions for your wedding such as trellises, arches, candelabras & pedestals. We are also able to provide a large selection of plants and so much more to help set the perfect ambiance for your wedding! Ask one of our professionals to help guide you through your options.

Perfect Wedding Bouquet

5/ 5

I was so happy with my Wedding Bouquet from George Thomas Florist. Melissa was a pleasure to work with and did a fabulous job! Our wedding was a beach wedding so I wanted a silk flower bouquet that would be easy to take with us and also keep forever. The bouquet was absolutely the perfect choice. Melissa also made two decorative silk floral arrangements that I gave to my mother & mother-in-law as gifts. Melissa had everything completed within a short period of time and the price was very reasonable. I would recommend anyone planning a Wedding or needing flowers for any reason to consider stopping in to see Melissa at George Thomas Florist.

Amazing talent/ amazing people

5/ 5

George Thomas was the most wonderful place to work with for our wedding flowers. I gave them suggestions and photos with ideas but then they gathered everything together and created the perfect look for our wedding day. The bouquets were so amazing, I was grinning ear to ear when I saw them, they were even prettier than I had pictured them . The table settings fit perfectly in the outdoor setting and the fresh flowers on the cake were a perfect touch. The succulents I had wanted were scattered about the decor and bouquets, which offered such a beautiful element. All the details were executed perfectly and Sam and Melissa we’re amazing to work with. The flowers tied the entire wedding together and we were truly blown away with their vision, execution and involvement with our wedding day! Thank you so much to all involved in the flower beautification for our wedding.

Wedding Flowers

5/ 5

My flowers were amazing! I went a little over budget initially and they did not make me feel uncomfortable or bad for coming back in and slimming down my wish list in order to stay on budget. The flowers were beautiful and I received so many compliments. I wasn’t sure what I could get on my small budget, but they worked miracles.

Simply Amazing!

5/ 5

Wedding planning on your own can be extremely overwhelming–which was the task I gave myself. When it came to flowers, I had a few ideas but was very open to input. Melissa was incredibly helpful and designed arrangements I could not have ever imagined. She also took care of everything–I never once even had the thought to worry about my flowers. I knew I would love them and that they would be there on-time for our wedding. The flowers were gorgeous and I had so many compliments on them. If you want someone you can count on, which you will, go with George Thomas!

Excellent!!

5/ 5

My husband and I got married 8/24/13 downtown Indianapolis. Our colors were yellow and lime green. Melissa helped us out so much. When we first went there to pick out flowers we had our 1 yr old daughter with us. While it was nearly impossible trying to look at flowers and keep our little one from breaking something. Melissa had little toys handy so we could focus on our flowers! It was really nice. The flowers turned out beautiful and they were very affordable. I will be recommending George Thomas Florist to friends and family!!

George Thomas Florist: AMAZING service and quality!!!

5/ 5

I worked very closely with Melissa at George Thomas for our wedding in September of 2012. I could not have been more pleased with the quality of service, the product that we received, as well as the affordability. We didn’t really have a large budget to work with, and Melissa made some WONDERFUL suggestions that helped make our wedding so beautiful and memorable. She was always very prompt in responding to my calls, and answered any and all questions that I had. Even though delivery was a bit difficult based on our Sunday wedding, she made sure everything was at the location and ready to go well in advance. She let us rent vases and return them after the honeymoon. We were so very pleased with her kindness, her attention to detail, and her professionalism. We felt like a part of the family. We will be going to George Thomas for all of our florist needs from here on out. I even made my husband promise that if he was buying me flowers he would only do it from George Thomas. GREAT BUSINESS.

4.2/ 5

It is always a pleasure working with Melissa and she is always very accommodating and professional. The floral arrangements and bouquet for the wedding were beautiful; however, they seemed old, like they had been in the freezer or frig for several days. The roses were very very dark red and by the end of the evening the roses were wilting. I did not report this because Melissa is so nice, but I didn’t get my monies worth on this one.
