Megan was awesome! I was so back and forth about how many flowers I wanted, she was so patient and helpful! Upon meeting her she was so warm and just ready to help, with getting things done, just anything. I told her my flower girls were going to be throwing lavender, she was like I have some dried lavender out back if you want to use that? It was great! She also asked if we had our cake yet, when we went to meet with her, she had a cake tasting ready to go for us! The flowers were in our budget, she didn't try to upsale anything, it was like she just wanted my vision to work and she was willing to do whatever to make that happen. I would highly recommend!

The flowers were gorgeous! She even worked with all my requests to special details such as my moms lace-from her dress-around my bouquet and small pictures for other bouquets. I even came out under budget without skimping on flowers.

Short version: Megan was a horrible coordinator, and when I politely expressed my disappointment, she was completely unprofessional and quit 4 days before the wedding.

Longer version:
I hired Megan as a day-of-wedding coordinator and she was a complete nightmare. She didn't listen to or remember anything I said, she just tried to force her own weird ideas on me. When I would say that I didn't like a certain idea, she would keep trying to convince me that it was right rather than listening to what I wanted (this happened for about 5 different things, in fact, it was almost every idea she had). She seems to have an extreme problem with accepting any disagreement or criticism (I really was polite about it too!). A few of my other vendors even asked about her, and whether or not she was "from this area", saying that they felt it was a little strange that she didn't know a lot of basic things about the wedding when she talked to them (presumably because she forgot what I had told her).

To give a small example of Megan's weird behavior, she sent me an e-mail saying that she would be sending me a schedule for the day of the wedding, but no schedule was attached. She ended up sending it over a month later, and it had the ceremony going from 4 pm to 9 pm, when I had told her multiple times (both e-mail and phone) that the ceremony started at 5 pm and reception ended late in the evening. She didn't seem at all bothered or think it was a big deal that she had the wrong start time -- this kind of oopsie is really not the kind of stress a bride needs, but she didn't even seem to register the fact that she was adding stress rather than reducing it. Plus, what is the point of sending someone an e-mail a month in advance of actually sending the schedule (and what the heck was she doing for that month, since it was a completely generic schedule that didn't have the order of events I had told her on the phone). This is just a tiny example, but it gives you a general idea of the quality of her work, and how she is just a bit 'off'.

Another example is that she called me the week of the wedding to suggest that I might find a rental company to get a patio umbrella for our ceremony musician. That might have been an okay suggestion 4 weeks before the wedding, but by 4 days before the wedding it's just an unnecessarily stressful thing to bring up. Plus, I live far away from the venue and she lives close to it -- it turns out there was a ton of shade for the musician, and Megan easily could have just popped by and checked the shade situation rather than raising my blood pressure by thinking that I suddenly needed to take care of one more thing at the last minute. I very respectfully told her that I was concerned about how she had brought up the umbrella without checking with me first, and told her that I thought it was a bit of a lapse in judgement (how much nicer can you say it!) and she was offended that I said that and decided to QUIT 4 days before the wedding.

Even if I had been mean to her (which I really hadn't, I just respectfully expressed increasing frustration with her work), a true professional would have stuck it out and put their best face forward rather than quitting on such short notice. Do you really want to hire someone who would quit 4 days out if you say anything to rub them the wrong way? Megan should stick to flowers and never coordinate another wedding ever.

Meghan at Bella Bloom was amazing! She listened to my vision and brought it to life. The flowers were beautiful and she helped us stay on budget by allowing us to rent centerpieces. She was on-time and made sure everything was done before she left. She did an amazing job! We loved it all!

A DIAMOND in the rough ladies! They came recommended to me from another coordinator and I was so haapy they were on my team. If I could score Bella Bloom a "10" for the categories, I would. They were always available and responsive, always professional (and fun, and easy going, and no DRAMA), got WAY more than I expected (they even put some extra touches at our head table and at the guest book table without being asked), and the flowers were amazing! They had to travel two hours to pull our event off, and they were stars! I tried to download pictures of our wedding flowers on this site, but it stalled out on me, but I noticed she had a few on her website. Well done!! And BTW...totally affordable!

Words cannot express how PERFECT our wedding design and flowers were! Bella Bloom nailed it, and they were easy to work with, very professional, and thought of every detail. I was not a bride who had the details and everything planned out, so having someone creative and experienced was invaluable. They gave us great suggestions on flower options and ways to stay within our budget. Thank you for letting us rent the vases (saving us a little money) and then donating our flowers to the convelescent hospital after our event. That was a sweet gesture instead of just throwing them out. Thank you for everything! I will recommend you highly!

On the scoring/rating of our florist: Bella Bloom was extremely responsive to my calls and my many e-mails, and I never had to wait more than 24 hours to get a return call or e-mail. She was very professional and flexible, and I feel they delivered amazing flowers and amazing service. Very happy!
