Carly was a joy to work with for my wedding. At the start of the planning process, I didn't have a strong idea of what kinds of colors I wanted. But after talking with Carly and discussing a broad palette (yellow, orange, blue, purple, white), she was able to design an absolutely gorgeous arrangement. We were able to stop by her place in Leesburg to see a sample bouquet and centerpieces before the wedding. She did a fantastic job with the corsages and boutonnieres too, and even attached a few flowers to bobby pins for my hair. Since we did a Jewish wedding, we also needed a chuppah (wedding canopy), which Carly was able to provide. She has a homemade, all-natural, wooden chuppah (made by her husband), which Carly decorated with our wedding flowers for the ceremony. We received SO many complements on the flowers. And it was literally half the price of all the other vendors we surveyed. Plus Carly has a bright personality, is so fun to work with, and supports local businesses that employ women. I already recommended her to friends who ended up using Affordable Arrangements for their weddings and had great experiences too.

Carly, at Affordable Arrangements, is a dream to work with. She immediately picked up my daughter's vision of a more natural, organic theme and chose fragrant beautiful flowers to create stunning bouquets in chemistry glassware. She filled test tube racks with some of the most exquisite pastel colored delicate sweet smelling flowers I have ever seen. She was so incredibly flexible as we added and made numerous changes. She is responsive, talented and very friendly.

Carly was a dream to work with. We spoke about the flowers for the ceremony and reception and looked at a few pictures, but when my flowers were delivered I was blown away. They were so much more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed of. Carly was SO easy to work with, very responsive on email, and flexible to the changes and additions we made to our contract. She was incredibly affordable and produced incredibly high quality flowers. I would recommend her for ANY occasion.

100% recommend Carly and Affordable Arrangements for any bride, small or large wedding! I have to be honest, I had a hard time picking a florist... they all seemed to make beautiful bouquets, so I went on affordability as well as my gut feeling upon meeting them. My first meeting with her felt very personal, she offered a ton of suggestions, and her prices were so reasonable. I had to pick her and I definitely made the right choice! After understanding the feel I was going for (soft, romantic, semi-formal), she sent pictures of what blooms she thinking about using, but I was so confident in her abilities that I didn't really know what the bouquets would look like until the day of - what an amazing surprise - they were perfect. I also appreciated that she never tried to upsell anything, just gave me exactly what I asked for. My mom's friend did our table arrangements, and as a last minute request, Carly got the flowers for these for us at decent prices and even provided input on how to make a floating centerpiece work. I had a few bad experiences with other vendors who made me feel like there wasn't a strong sense of customer service in the wedding industry and Carly was such a breath of fresh air in this sense! Her talents and personality are awesome!

I am so happy that I discovered Affordable Arrangements for my wedding flowers. Carly was such a pleasure to work with. She accommodated my vision for calla lilies within my budget perfectly! She was flexible and helpful as we figured out the flowers together. She suggested beautiful table centerpieces, ribbon colors, bouquet sizes, and more. Every time I talked with her, she was so friendly and nice. The flowers were ready on time for the wedding and they all looked really good. I highly recommend Affordable Arrangements!

Carly did the flowers for my wedding and she was absolutely amazing!! I had no idea what I was doing going in to the flowers portion of the wedding, and Carly was a huge help in turning my ideas into reality. She had worked at my site before multiple times so she had some great suggestions I wouldn't have thought of otherwise, both to make things beautiful and to help save us some money. She also incorporated in any last minute changes I had flawlessly. Day of, the flowers were beautiful and the arrangements and bouquets all exceeded my expectations. We received so many compliments on the flowers and centerpieces, and everything matched the vision I wanted perfectly!

I was sooo impressed and excited with how well the flowers for my wedding turned out. We talked to Carly about the color scheme and overall theme we wanted for my wedding and she put together a thorough and comprehensive proposal that addressed EVERYTHING, from the bouquets to the flowers on top of the cake and at the guest book table. I didn't have specific flowers in mind, only colors really (green and white), and she was able to create a stunning array of flowers that all looked gorgeous together. I would not have done ANYTHING differently in terms of flowers, there were wonderful. Attentiveness and responsiveness were top notch. She was quick to accommodate any changes. And delivery was on time and all flowers were as fresh as could be. Thanks Carly, for helping my wedding look beautiful!

Carly did a wonderful job with all my wedding flowers! We chose her because she was much more reasonably priced then other florists but I was so impressed with her work (her pictures of bouquets don't do her justice!). I didn't know exactly what I wanted but Carly worked with us to pull together a cohesive and beautiful look from the pictures and ideas I had. She was great at re-purposing flowers so we could get the best bang for our buck and was upfront about all the costs. She put together a very detailed proposal and worked with us as we made changes to some things. The day of the wedding, the flowers were on time and looked great. I was so pleased with everything- the aisle flowers, bouquets, centerpieces, mantle greens and cake flowers.

Carly was outstanding!! It was amazing to see how she turned my vague ideas into gorgeous arrangements. When we first met, she listened to my ideas, explained what flowers would be in season and provided suggestions. She sent a detailed, itemized quote including pictures of the flowers she'd use which was so helpful. Over the course of the planning process she was flexible to changes, quick to respond to emails, and a pleasure to work with overall.

I was blown away by the bouquets and arrangements on the wedding day - they turned out better than I could have imagined! Thank you Carly!!

I know nothing about flowers nor were they high on my priority list. Carly, gave us great ideas on what flowers we should get based on our colors, the season, and our theme. I had never heard of purple stock but they ended up making a lovely bouquet. She also provided us with samples for potential centerpieces and then tailored it based on what we liked and didn't like. In the end, everything was beautiful and it was at an affordable price.

My wife and I really enjoyed working with Carly at Affordable Arrangements for our wedding flowers. Her goal is to provide beautiful flowers at reasonable costs (very unique in the NoVa area!), and she definitely delivered.

When my wife (Lindsay) met with Carly for her consultation, she was very impressed with Carly's professionalism, friendliness, expertise, and practicality. Carly was great about working with Lindsay to get as close to her ideal as possible without going over budget, while also getting excited about our ideas. For example, Lindsay wanted a bouquet of white hydrangeas, roses, calla lilies, and peonies. Carly agreed that this would be beautiful, but warned that peonies would be pretty expensive in this area at the time of the wedding (September). She recommended using garden roses instead, which both saved money and looked beautiful.

Carly was very responsive to calls and email, and was very punctual on the day of the wedding. She contacted our venues and other vendors ahead of time to work out timing and make sure everything ran smoothly, which was great. All in all, it was a pleasure working with her, and we'd recommend Affordable Arrangements to anyone.

We are so glad we chose Carly at Affordable Arrangements as our florist. I met with Carly once at her home office for about 30 minutes or an hour. I don't know the names of many flowers, so I thought it would be difficult to convey what I wanted. I brought a few pictures along to the meeting and Carly was completely on the same page as me. After showing her the pictures, she started brainstorming some fabulous ideas for flowers at our event.

The week before the wedding, Carly contacted me to confirm all the details. I changed the number of boutonnieres and she had absolutely no problem with that.

On our wedding day, the flowers arrived promptly. The bouquets were STUNNING, along with all the other flowers Carly brought. I am still shocked at how well Carly perfected my vision for our event and am incredibly thankful.

If you're getting married in the area, I definitely recommend Carly from Affordable Arrangements.

I booked Carly as my florist after reading some very positive reviews about her business on sites like this one. To be honest, I was a bit skeptical at first because she was priced so much lower than other florists I talked to. When I saw the flowers on the day of the wedding I was blown away. They were so beautiful and so much more than I ever expected! On top of that, Carly was very professional throughout the whole process and is very good at responding to emails and calls. Definitely go with her if you want reasonably priced, beautiful flowers on your big day!

I loved our florist, Carly Johnson, owner of Affordable Arrangements. I don't know a lot about flowers, but I explained to her the look I was going for and she NAILED it. I was really adamant about not having huge bouquets and gave her colors and she made it work. I also found her very affordable -- granted we had a gorgeous venue that didn't require a ton of flowers so that price point may get more expensive if you want a flower extravaganza. I felt like she was honest and straightforward and would highly recommend her.

Our wedding flowers definitely exceeded my expectations and Carly was fabulous to work with. We weren't 100% sure what we wanted when we first met with Carly but she took the ideas that we did have and gave us some great ideas to fit our budget and our vision for the wedding. She was very accommodating with my idea for the bridesmaids to each carry a bouquet of their favorite flower and for my bouquet to contain each of their flowers. My bouquet was absolutely gorgeous; she really did an awesome job on it. For our reception, we had a mixture of tall and short centerpieces, and they were all beautiful. Carly did an exceptional job, she was a pleasure to work with, and she helped make our wedding gorgeous! I would absolutely recommend her - she did a great job working within our budget but giving us exactly what we wanted at the same time!

I am soooo happy I went with Affordable Arrangements for the flowers at my wedding. Words can hardly describe how beautiful everything was, but the tears when I first saw my bouquet can!

When first planning for my wedding, flowers were low on my priority list. But I selected some photos of arrangements I liked to go with my rustic theme and met with a few vendors in the Leesburg area. Carly understood my vision right away, and seemed genuinely happy to work with me. My first meeting with her made me even more excited for my wedding day after she helped layout how the ceremony, reception room and bouquets would look like. Flowers went from a low priority to something I was most excited to see. The other vendors tried to up-sell and add fancy flowers that didn't fit with what I was showing them.

Throughout the whole process Carly was very friendly, professional and always prompt with responses.

And the true approval test: My mother who is an avid gardener thought the flowers were absolutely perfect, too!

Definitely use Carly and Affordable Arrangements. You won't find better a better value.

OMG I love Carly! All the other florists wanted outrageous fees for my super simply arrangements, Carly was super straight forward, unbelievably sweet and the centerpieces for the reception, church arrangements, bouquet, and a pain in the butt baby's breath garland that was BEYOND amazing (and no one else would even quote me a price to do) WE FANTASTIC. She saw my vision, listened, and created. I would highly recommend Affordable Arrangements. Carly was a phenom on the day of the wedding with different location drop off's too - I just can't say enough about how well cared for I felt.

My husband and I met with Carly when we were planning our wedding at the advice of his cousin who also got married last year. We met Carly at her home studio, and got such a great vibe from her. She was so relaxed and was not only willing to listen to ideas that we had in mind for our flowers, but also offered us suggestions that she felt would look good based on the flowers that would be in season in early November. I had done a lot of research to get ideas prior to our meeting, and had found an image of a beautiful rustic bouquet that had all of the vibrant colors that we wanted. I brought an image of the bouquet with me, and Carly requested a copy of the image in order to base the other floral aspects of the wedding off of this favorite bouquet. We received Carly's estimate via email a few days after our meeting, and were so thrilled because she sent pictures of all of the flowers that she was planning on using, so we could almost build the centerpieces in our minds. It was a breeze working with her, and she was really flexible when we had to make a last minute change in the number of centerpieces.

Carly did an absolutely amazing job - we got so many compliments on all of the floral aspects, and she was very reasonably priced (we had met with one florist prior to meeting with her, and she came in a couple of hundred dollars lower than our other estimate). We would whole-heartedly recommend Carly Johnson and Affordable Arrangements to any bride in the Northern Virginia area.

Carly at Affordable Arrangements was a dream to work with!! We chose our flowers towards the end of the planning process, and we were worried how it would fit into our budget. Carly was so open to working within our budget, and we were absolutely thrilled with the end result. We wanted slightly less traditional flower arrangements, and asked her to get creative with the vases, centerpieces, etc. She understood our vision PERFECTLY and just ran with it. She sent us updates throughout the entire process, but ultimately we trusted her skills and let her come up with her own ideas. We were beyond thrilled! She paid such attention to detail, and her overall vision worked perfectly in our rustic setting. She was also a sweetheart to work with, so excited to be a part of our special day, and clearly loves what she does. And she is amazing at it!!

I absolutely LOVED working with Carly from Affordable Arrangements. The first time we sat down to talk, I knew I wanted her to be our florist. She was organized and asked all the right questions (many of which I never would have thought about until the day of the wedding). I showed up with tons of very different pictures -- and really no idea what I wanted -- and by the end of our meeting, I felt like I had a real vision of what my reception would look like. Her prices are more than reasonable, and she suggested several cost-saving options during this meeting that I (as a flower novice) didn't know about. The flower arrangements at our wedding were absolutely beautiful. She delivered everything on time. I would recommend her to anyone.

Carly at Affordable Arrangements was great! We met with her about 6 months before our wedding and gave her a general overview of what we were looking for. Along the way, she was able to accommodate our needs -- adding in a bridesmaid, going from 2 flower girls to none, adding in flowers for grandmothers and the like. 2 weeks before my wedding, my mom decided to add an arch and Carly was able to add in flowers for that as well. I absolutely LOVED my bouquet and my bridesmaids loved theirs! We got so many compliments on our centerpieces as well. I especially loved the fact that Carly was able to work within our budget and did an amazing job.

We were very impressed with Carly. When we were choosing a florist Affordable Arrangements were in fact one of the better priced florists around. When we had our first meeting with her she knew exactly what we wanted and made the whole process easy. We later got to see samples of the arrangements and boquets and they were better than what we had thought of in our heads. All the flowers arrived the day of the wedding fresh, greatly blossomed, and they all looked great. We greatly recommend affordable arrangements for your Florist. Carly is awesome to work with!

I could not have been more pleased with the pricing and quality of service from Carly. She stepped in after my other florist had to cancel, and gave me what I already had in mind plus more for a lower price. Her arrangements are amazingly beautiful, and is flexible with making changes to flowers. The quality of flowers were unbelievable. After speaking with me for a few minutes at our first meeting, she really understood exactly what I wanted. She made several trips to get our flowers to all the places on time. We received so many compliments on the flowers and I was in love with them!

I can not say enough wonderful things about Carly and her services at Affordable Arrangements!! I am so glad I chose her as my wedding flower vendor.

When I originally met with Carly, we had briefly discussed my colors and theme and she quickly sent me a preliminary quote. When we sat down to discuss the details, she instantly understood the theme, style, color scheme, and price range I needed. Her ideas were wonderful and exactly what I was looking for!! In addition to having the best ideas, understanding, and professionalism of all the vendors I spoke to - she had the best price! She even recommended ways to save money (i.e. using the bouquets and aisle markers as centerpieces at the reception so I didn't have to buy double!). When my plans (aka my budget) changed, Carly was very willing to revise the plan and make more suggestions for savings.

On my wedding day, the flowers were prepared perfectly and right on time. The arrangements were absolutely perfect - exactly what I had asked for but even better than I could have imagined.

Carly clearly has incredible skill and passion for her work. She is friendly, kind, professional, responsive, and everything else a Bride wants in a vendor. I highly recommend talking to Carly about your wedding flowers! THANK YOU CARLY!

Carly with Affordable Arrangements is so great! When I met with her, I had an idea of the kinds of flowers that I wanted, but she created a style for the arrangements that I really loved.

We kept our flower arrangements pretty simple, but we got so MANY compliments on the day of our wedding. Everything was at our location early, and her prices were very doable for our budget. Carly was very flexible in working with us, as our guest list was ever changing, we made many revisions to our order, and she was so accommodating. We would recommend her to anyone who is looking for wedding flowers.

We were very excited to see what Carly would put together, however, she exceeded our expectations in a way we could never have imagined. We painted a basic picture of the overall look we hoped to achieve, but left it up to her to make it happen. What we walked into was the perfect picture of our vision! Everyone commented on how wonderful it all looked, and more importantly felt, with the arrangements. Perfect, perfect, perfect!!! I cannot rave enough.

Our centerpieces were absolutely stunning, and we received MANY compliments on them (including, my husband's aunt wanting to keep one so she could disect it to figure out how it was made so she could make it in the future!). Her prices were fantastic and really allowed us to have the flowers we envisioned without breaking our budget. They made such a dramatic difference in the appearance of our reception. We are so glad we went with Carly! She was super friendly and accomodating; a real jewel to work with. We would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for beautiful decor at a fraction of the cost of most florists!

Unlike most of my vendors, picking a florist was particularly tough. I didn't know anyone in the flower business and the only person recommended to me by a family member wasn't a good fit.
However, I emailed my venue, Briar Patch B&B, and asked for a suggestion. Their response, Affordable Arrangements.
My mom and I met with Carly at her home office in Leesburg and went through a checklist of pieces we needed and flowers I liked. She was wonderful and sent over pictures of the exact flowers she planned to use. Still I was nervous that the image in my head may not be her image as well.
The day of my wedding, I cried when the flowers arrived. They were SOOO much more than I could have imagined. Every single bouquet and arrangement was a work of art. The colors were vibrant and the flowers were in great shape. I dried the personal flowers immediately after the wedding for keepsakes, but the arrangements we kept around our home and lasted two full weeks!!
I could not have asked for more!

Carly of Affordable Arrangements was a joy to work with! She understood exactly what I wanted (even when I didn't!) and made it better than I ever thought possible. I loved my bouquet and all of the flowers.

She was knowledgeable and I could tell she had experience. I knew what I wanted as far as colors (which she understood perfectly and made even better than I'd dreamed!) but I had no idea about individual flowers. She sent me pictures about what she was considering and helped me pick out which flowers I really liked. She got my theme perfectly and used my inputs to create the perfect arrangements! She also helped me pick out which flowers would work well in my hair, and they were lovely. She really did an excellent job.

She was also very flexible - I kept sending her changes to the number of bouts and corsages as our guests changed at the last minute and it wasn't a problem at all.

She was also truly affordable! I told her we'd budgeted a certain amount for flowers and with everything we wanted we actually came hundreds UNDER! I didn't think we'd be able to get so many flowers for so little - our venues were gorgeous with all the flowers.

I recommend Affordable Arrangements completely. Any bride can rest easy knowing they're going to get a great result!

We were very pleased with our wedding flowers provided by Affordable Arrangements. We found Carly very easy to work with, and she was fantastic at working within our budget. We started by telling her what we wanted and she mocked-up a proposal. Then we adjusted accordingly to our budget. We just gave her the number we had to work with, and she made it happen. She had many creative ideas for making our money stretch, like using the bridesmaid bouquets as centerpieces during the reception. The bridesmaids were still able to keep their bouquets, but they had a nice place to rest during the meal. We highly recommend Carly and Affordable Arrangements!

Carly is amazing, sweet, energetic and makes planning your wedding even more fun! She is very knowledgeable about what flowers work best and stay looking nice the longest. She helped me get the most for my budget while not looking like I skimped at all. She promptly deliverd the wedding parties flowers, set up the alter and tool on the pews and then (at a separate location) set up the cocktail hour and reception exactly how we discussed. She is very responsive and talented and I would highly recommend using her. Thanks Carly!!

I had an overall great experience working with Carly from Affordable Arrangements. I had very specific ideas of how I wanted the flowers for my wedding and I showed her pictures. During our planning meeting, she was able to help me with suggestions for each item we needed. She submitted professional proposals and worked with me to stay within a budget. The floral arrangements were beautiful. She delivered the girls’ flowers to our hotel and then went to the venue to deliver everything else and set up. Carly is very passionate and enthusiastic about her work. She responded quickly to all emails I sent her. We were able to enjoy our arrangements for quite a few days after the wedding. Carly is amazing. Thank you for your hard work.

Carly is amazing to work with. I didn't know much about flowers, but I met with her in her home and she was able to show me examples of work that she's done as well as suggestions for particular flowers that would compliment the setting.

We got married in the fall, and she suggested orange calla lillies, with burgundy roses, and these little berry/twigs. It looked absolutely amazing. We had an outdoor wedding in a vineyard, and her suggestions were perfect.

Carly showed up that day on-time (maybe even a little bit early) and delivered the personal flowers to our hotel and then the centerpieces to the vineyard. Since it was all local to her home, we only had to pay one delivery fee which was nice. She is really nice and really pleasant to work with. Her prices were far below the big floral shops, but her work was (in my opinion) better as it was more personal.

The bouquets (mine especially) were above and beyond what I imagined! I didn't have a clear picture in my mind of what I wanted, I just had a magazine tear-out of something I sort of liked, with things I didn't like, but didn't know what to change. Had I had a definitive image of what I wanted for my bouquets, what Carly created would have been it! Everything was absolutely amazing. She really listened and "got" me.

All the flowers were perfect... the guys boutonnières, the bouquets, centerpieces, flowers for our moms, and all the accent pieces. Everything was fresh and in full bloom (some are still blooming on my counter a week later).

Carly was even able to add a few last minute flowers (as in, the day before I asked for more, she made it happen!)

For comparisons sake, I was told a friends wedding flower budget was the same as mine. She got her bouquet, 3 bridesmaids bouquets, and 3 boutonnières, and 1 alter arrangement. I got my bouquet, 2 bridesmaid bouquets, 12 boutonnières, 2 moms bouquets, flower girl petals, 9 centerpieces, an alter piece, and several smaller items for the cake, buffet table, and guest book table.

Carly also made 2 deliveries to my venue so that the girls would have their flowers in time for pictures, and then a second delivery after the caterer was there for set-up.

Will definitely use Affordable Arrangements in the future.

Carly far exceeded my expectations!! I only had an idea and a few photo's from magazines of what I had wanted my tables and bouquets to look like. From meeting with us a few times Carly was able to get a good feel for what I had envisioned my day to look like and she did an amazing job!!

My bouquet was GORGEOUS and so many people commented on my centerpieces as well. Carly even made TWO deliveries to my venue to deliver our bouquets early so we could take some pictures before our ceremony.

Carly also provided fresh orchids which was one of my centerpieces for my bridesmaids hair as well as a throw away bouquet at no charge. My husband and I met with about 5 different florists and we knew after meeting Carly that she was our last meeting and that we were going to use her. She also made some amazing arrangements for my Bridal luncheon that we were able to reuse as the Rehearsal dinner and on the buffet table at my reception! Many others that we had spoken to did not suggest that option of reusing flowers.

Carly does outstanding work at a VERY AFFORDABLE price. I would definitely recommend her to other bride's looking for a florist as well as possibly use her in the future.

Carly from Affordable Arrangements was fantastic - she produced absolutely gorgeous floral arrangements for my wedding at an affordable price!

I had a very specific theme and color scheme in mind when I first met with Carly, and I took a number of magazine photos with me to give her a sense of what I wanted. She helped me think through each flower arrangement (bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, centerpieces, arbor decor, etc) and select specific flowers that provided the look that I wanted but at more reasonable prices than some alternatives.

I also requested a specific polka-dot ribbon be used which she didn't have on hand - however, she was willing to find exactly what I wanted to use. Also, prior to the wedding, I decided to add an accent color and Carly quickly revised the contract and found berries that matched a color-swatch I provided.

When I arrived at my venue the day of my wedding - I was SO happy with the flowers! Honestly, they were stunning and better than I had expected (and I'm a picky gal)! The bouquets were a perfect size and the flowers were gorgeous. The corsages for my mother and mother-in-law had a beautifully beaded wristband which I didn't expect. The arbor looked amazing for the ceremony. But, I must say Carly's centerpieces stole the show - and made the reception tent look spectular!! I ordered an array of high and low arrangements in a natural white and green blend of hydrangeas, spider mums, etc. The tall arrangements with curly willow branches were my favorite!

I was very pleased with Carly's services and dedication to making my floral vision come true! I received many compliments on the flowers - and they ended up as the subject of many of my photographs too!

Hats off to Carly and Affordable Arrangements!

Carly was a dream. Going into wedding planning I knew next to nothing about the flowers that I wanted or what would look good together. During our first meeting I wasn't even sure what colors we would be using. She was able to offer suggestions and pull together a proposal, and throughout the process was able to work with me to streamline that to meet our budget and design vision. She offered flower type and color suggestions. She was willing to allow me to provide all of the flower vessels, as opposed to renting them, and she suggested that we recycle the bouquets as centerpieces for some of the tables in order to save on cost and flowers.

I was worried about the flowers meshing with the rest of our DIY decor, since I had provided her little inspiration, and hardly any color guidance. I was floored when I walked into the venue and saw how perfectly the flowers matched my vision. They were exactly what I had wanted, but hadn't been able to express to her. They were simple, yet beautiful. I would definitely recommend using Affordable Arrangements for your event!

Far and away the least expensive florist we found. But the thing that would make me recommend Affordable Arrangements is Carly's beautiful work and her incredible flexibility. She didn't even pause when we continuously threw changes at her. After nailing down a plan, we proceeded to change colors, number of attendants, and containers for our table arrangements. Two days before the ceremony I discovered that the chuppah poles I had were not free-standing, and she immediately came up with a solution. The flowers were one part of the wedding that I never had any worries about. Carly made me confident they would be great, and they were.

I worked with Carly, explained my budget and overall vision and the end result was above and beyond what I thought possible. The flowers really transformed the room and I could not be happier. Leading up to the wedding there were rumors of a huge snow storm coming our way. Carly called me the day before my wedding to reassure me the centerpieces, bouquets, etc would be at the wedding no matter what the weather! I hope she knows how much that meant to me - it was such a rare and yet, appreciated courtesy for her to do that. I would highly recommend Affordable Arrangements for your special event!

Carly was great to work with. I knew I wanted seasonal flowers for my fall wedding, with purple and orange as some of the main colors. Carly was very creative and came up with beautiful bouquets, an arch for our ceremony, and centerpieces and window decorations for our reception. When I had a suggestion for a window decoration after our initial meeting and e-mailed a picture, Carly was very accommodating. The price was reasonable and I liked that the flowers were local. She dealt with several last minute dress changes from a bridesmaid (coordinating the ribbon on the bouquet) and was flexible on when we returned some vases after the wedding.

I am sorry that I couldn't rate Carly higher than a 5!! I did not have a wedding planner and corresponded with my vendors directly. We wanted a vendor that would be able to provide the perfect compliment of flowers at our vineyard wedding. Initially, we went with the "buck shot" approach and contacted a large number of vendors in the area and received a large number of responses with promises to make the event special. Carly was just fabulous and made me feel like we were the only event she was planning for, which was so great during the planning stages since a bride and groom have so much more to stress about. She was easygoing, very responsive and the final product was nothing short of FABULOUS! I gave her a picture of an arrangement that I adored (from a bridal magazine), very non traditional but the perfect compliment to the vineyard theme. Carly went above and beyond what we expected and all at a rate that was much less than some of the larger vendors in the area. My guests were excited to take home such wonderful table arrangements.

I have recommended Carly to all of my friends and would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a florist. AMAZING QUALITY and FABULOUS SERVICE!

While other florists tried to take advantage of that she showed me ways to save money and get what I needed and wanted. She brought my very vague descriptions to life with amazing class. She was extremely flexible with my ever changing ideas and colors and was able to adapt on the wedding day when I forgot a person who needed a boutineer! The cost was by far the best and the quality was not compromised. Thanks Carly!

I selected Carly off of the great responses on Wedding Wire. I had quotes from three florists and I felt most comfortable working with Carly. She works from home and grows many of her own flowers. Although I changed my mind a few times, she met my vision perfectely. A second bride was married at my church that day and using Carly as well. I was impressed when Carly suggested we split the ceremony flowers and cost. She also split our delivery costs between the two of us. When everyone seems out to make a buck off of the wedding business, it was refreshing to know that she was practical and a great florist. We highly recommend Carly!

Carly was awesome to work with and made my floral dreams into a reality! I loved all my flowers! I was very impressed with Carly during the planning process, I do not have much knowledge on flowers and when she sent out my quote she also included pictures of all the flowers she mentioned. I only wish I could keep my flowers just the way they are forever!

Carly was so easy to work with from the moment we met. I researched many other florists and they could get the job done but not at the great price that Carly could. I mean, it's really easy to go overboard and over budget when doing flowers... but with Carly, I got most everything I wanted within my price range. She even offered ways for saving money by reusing some arrangements from the ceremony for the reception.

The best thing about her, besides her prices, was that she had all the other decorations we needed like vases, candles, etc. She even provided a tree slab for our cake base, which saved me a lot of time and money. She instantly understood the look I was going for and had some great ideas for the flowers I wanted. I wanted mainly white, green, and blue but many flowers aren't naturally blue so she made sure I had a wide variety of naturally blue flowers rather than dyed ones. After our first meeting, she made sure to send me photos of the flowers we had discussed. She was also flexible when we had to make minor changes to things and only took a few days (maybe a week max) to get back to me. At no point was I ever concerned that she wouldn't respond and it's understandable considering how busy she is with weddings practically every weekend.

As far as the wedding, most everything was what we discussed. We didn't see any arrangements before hand so it was a surprise that day but that's a testament to how comfortable I was with her work. She was organized when it came to the bouts and the corsages and had names on them to identify which was for whom. The bouquets were perfectly sized for us too... not too big or small. She even helped the staff set everything up and made sure it was how we wanted it. The flowers were fresh and she even adjusted our flower girl's halo so that it would fit her head. A great thing Carly does is pick up all her equipment herself, which is a major help after the wedding since we had so many other things to do the next day.

I will have to admit I had a really tight floral budget to work with. Carly from Affordable Arrangements went above and beyond to ensure I received everything on my grand floral wish list for the ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception at a steal deal!

Carly had a ton of energy that was contagious in our first meeting together and the flowers on our wedding day were beautiful. The business is run out of her home which in my view adds an extra special touch to the floral detail.

The flowers were amazing; thanks!

Carly from Affordable Arrangements was extremely professional and accomodating. It also helped that she was familiar with our venue site (we got married at Whitehall Manor) so she knew exactly where to place the floral arrangements. I especially loved the flower toppings on our cake. I would highly recommend working with her as she is very friendly, open, and knowledgeable and will work within any budget. I just wish I could have actually enjoyed the flowers more!

Carly is an amazing artist. She was incredibly professional and really worked with us. For our fall wedding we had shown her photographs of what we wanted and she made our flower arrangements come to life. The flowers for the wedding party as well as the table arrangements were better than I could ever imagine.

Carly definitely listens to her clients and works within whatever budget you give her. I cannot tell you how many people commented and noticed everything that she did for us, and just loved it. I'm extremely happy and grateful for working with you Carly and any floral arrangements that I need in the future I will contact you for them!

Thank you for everything!

I used Affordable Arrangements for my wedding last week. I absolutely loved how all of my flowers turned out! Carly is truly wonderful and you can tell that she loves what she does. She was very flexible in what we chose for the ceremony and reception, as we changed our minds a few times over the course of planning! She was very knowledgeable and had many suggestions on how we could keep costs down. I know she runs the business out of her home, so the only tiny negative I would have is that it was occasionally difficult in getting in touch with her or getting a reply. But, she's wonderful! I highly recommend her!

Carly was great. She did a wonderful job on the flowers and brought the uniqueness I wanted into my bouquet. It was a little overwhelming at first trying to plan wedding flowers from abroad (I live out of the country) but Carly is someone you can just trust to do a good job. It took me a little while to stop trying to micro manage the flowers but I'm glad I finally did.

Basically, just give her an idea of the look you want and let her do her thing. She won't dissapoint! The flowers were one of the few things at the wedding that did not go wrong! They were great! Thanks Carly!
She is flexible and is willing to work with your budget. People loved my centerpieces!

I was not sure about flowers when I first started planning, but Carley really helped me find my way and together we came up with the perfect flowers for my wedding. Every single detail was perfect. She took care of the bouquets, boutenniers, archway and centerpieces all at an affordable price without having forgo quality. I highly recommend her:)

I loved working with Carly from Affordable Arrangements for my wedding flowers. I was scarred after I met with another florist who spent 1.5 hours talking AT me and talking smack about his other customers and then quoted me at twice my budget that I had given him. When I met with Carly she was exactly what I needed: polite and professional, asked about what style I was looking for, and used her expertise to put exactly what was in my head on paper! I was still a bit over my initial flower budget but I guess I just didn't know that flowers are so pricey! My arrangements were bright and beautiful and I am so thankful to Carly for everything!!!

After researching many floral vendors for our wedding, Carly at Affordable Arrangements was definitely the most affordable. At our first meeting, we gave her many photos of what we wanted which included center pieces, bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, and ceremony decor. She worked with us to figure out what flowers were in the pictures we gave her and still stay within our budget. We were also able to rent pillars and tall glass cylinders from her for all the floating candles we wanted which worked out great.

My bouquet and our low centerpieces were breathtaking. The garden roses and colors were stunning and I'm so happy with how they turned out. The baby's breath variety she chose for the tall centerpieces and ceremony garland wasn't as full with the large blossoms as I had hoped and they didn't really look like the original pictures, but in the end it all worked out and the overall look of our ceremony space and reception area was gorgeous. It fit our winter wonderful wedding perfectly and complimented the snow falling outside! We were lucky to have found Carly to create the flowers on our wedding day and would definitely recommend her.

We would recommend Affordable Arrangements to couples in Northern Virginia. Carly was very responsive and friendly. She took the time to meet with us and design flowers that met our vision and our budget. We appreciated that she did not try to pressure us into things we did not want. On the day of our wedding, we picked up the bouquets, etc., and they were beautiful! I received a lot of positive comments about the bouquets in particular and how well they complemented the overall look of our ceremony. Beautiful flowers at a great value- you can't beat it!

Carly Johnson knows her flowers! An aunt, who works as a landscape artist, wrote in my guestbook "You had the most beautiful flowers I've ever seen at a wedding!" I took that as a very high complement. And, I believe it's true.

Before beginning the planning process, I knew next to nothing about flowers. However, Carly's expertise was clear from the very beginning. Her calm, confident nature put me at ease. She just seemed to "get" what I wanted without me having to explain it in great detail. The flowers turned out even better than I imaged. She also listened to my feedback, and was flexible when I made changes to my original order.

Aside from her expertise and flexibility, she is also customer oriented. Although you will have to pay for it, she delivers flowers to your ceremony site the day before. The money we spent on this was well worth is since there was so much else going on. I highly recommend delivery to brides!

Also, I was VERY happy that Carly and her helper left buckets for the flowers as well as a pair of pruning sheers to use for the next day (since I had requested to make the centerpieces for the reception myself). In short, I felt like she went above her call of duty to make sure everything was in it's place and ready to go the next day.

I would highly recommend using Affordable Arrangements! Thank you, Carly!

Carly from Affordable Arrangements was a pleasure to work with for our wedding. My mother and I visited her at her home to look at arrangements, and she sent me follow-up photographs of all the flowers she thought would work for our wedding and our budget. Her work definitely is "affordable"... And excellent! She did altar arrangements, bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages for us. They were all lovely, with bold colors (from flowers she grows herself in Virginia!) and they stayed together well -- no lost corsages or boutonnieres! We would sometimes have to wait a couple of days to get a reply from Carly, but never a period of time that was worrisome. I definitely recommend her!

Carly is the best - and at such an affordable price! If you are looking for an earthy feel that is subtle and beautiful, she is your florist. I had an autumn outdoor wedding and wanted to capture the essence of harvest time with deep, earthy tones. Carly used fruits, twigs, and deep autumn colors to give a simple sophisticated elegance to the evening. She delivered exactly what I had hoped and was the one vendor that came in well UNDER my budget!

Flowers were lovely. The center pieces could have been a little more full. They were held together with elastics on the stems, had they been held in place at the bottom of the vase they would have given a fuller appearance. But we were pleased with Carly and her work! Highly recommended.

I would absolutely recommend Carly! She did a great job at so many things.

First, when I was looking for a florist, I did not want to break the bank. We paid so much money for the vineyard where we were holding the wedding, that I depended on the vineyard for a lot of the "look" I was going for. In addition, I created some of my own centerpieces with candles. Carly definitely helped me to stay close to my budget!

Secondly, her flexibility was amazing. I changed my mind about stuff... a few times. Each time, she went with it. The last change was about a month before the wedding. She really had to be flexible to go along with that! She grows some of her own flowers, so she has a lot of options and choice. I really liked that.

Finally, she allowed me to use my own vases, which saves you a lot of money, and stored them for me. Honest, helpful and flexible. I really liked that! I did not realize how important it was to have flexible vendors until meeting Carly. I really appreciated that!

Carly was super nice!! I met with her twice at her home where she works out of and discussed some ideas. I really didn't know what I wanted, so she offered suggestions. I spent less than I thought I would because we replaced real flower centerpieces for lanterns surrounded by leaves and gourds, which our guests loved! My bridal bouquet and the girl's bouquets were so pretty! She even included a smaller bouquet for the toss as a gift. The only thing was that she wasn't as responsive as I had liked in the beginning. I sent a few emails with no response until I had to finally call her to see if she received them. She apologized and gave me an alternate email, which I had no further issues. I would recommend Carly as she is very affordable and offers a lot of suggestions and ideas. I was very happy with her services and how gorgeous our bouquets and decorations were!

The Florist did a beautiful job. The flowers were exactly as I described. She bulit this beautiful archway out of white ribbons and orchids to frame the ceremony and lovely colorful mini bouquets for the mothers of the brides. The prices were very affordable, and I feel like I got a good value for the money. I only wish she would have responded to me after the wedding, with a cost of another bouqet. Someone took my bouquet home by accident and I wanted to keep it.

Carly was very easy to work with and listened to my ideas and suggestions and brought them to life with her own suggestions. She used flowers that were in season and not over the top (as i requested) and helped accent the theme of our wedding without stealing the show. My flowers were unique and perfectly suited to our wedding and she wasvery adaptable, even when I brought her a picture of a bouquet totally different than where we started! We would recommend this florist to anyone!
