If you can't find a particular bloom at Vogue, you probably can't find it anywhere in Richmond. Owner Steve Papoulakos stocks forsythia in April and tulips in December — whatever customers envision for their big events. Vogue has dozens of pre-made arrangements, but also allows customers to buy by the stem. Crafty brides on a budget can assemble their own bouquets and centerpieces; Vogue provides the supplies and overnight storage. Coleman Brothers Flowers on Dumbarton Road is an old-fashioned florist with a wide assortment of pretty bouquets and friendly staff who create custom arrangements. Strange's Florist, founded in the 1930s, is a Richmond institution with four locations and an enormous selection.
