Perfection at its finest!!! I can't say enough about Diane Guadett and her amazing ability to transform a space into a small slice of heaven!! My wedding planner set up a few meetings with a couple of different florists for me to evaluate and from the very first moment I met Diane I knew she was "the one" :) I voiced what I was looking for in terms of design for my rustic christmas wedding and she was immediately super energetic and full of amazing ideas. I just had the sense that she "got" me. She understood my vision and not only enhanced it but brought my fairtytale picture wedding in my head, to life. She was always available to chat and answer any questions I had and worked easily with my budget. She had no problem letting me pick up and provide little things to her in order to keep some cost areas down. I had problems with many of my vendors along the way but I was never worried about Diane. I just knew she understood exactly what I wanted and boy was I right! On my wedding day, walking into my reception space, my jaw dropped. And every single one of my guests had the exact same reaction as they walked through my reception doors. From bouquets to boutonnieres, church decor to crystals and hanging candles, Diane made my wedding magazine worthy! I voiced I wanted tall rustic centerpieces and she actually created sky high twig trees that looked like they were growing out of my tables! Insanely beautiful! I can't thank Diane and her assistant enough for creating the most memorable and magical decor I have EVER seen. I will forever have my gorgeous pictures that capture the beauty , elegance and perfection that Diane Guadett executed on my wedding day. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!! Simply the BEST!!!!!!

Here is an email that I sent Diane so that you can understand how truly wonderful she was to work with:"Dear Diane,...The flowers were absolutely STUNNING. Even though I didn't get to see everything without people around, after seeing the photos, I can honestly say that the flowers were better than I could have ever imagined. My bouquet was stunning, and everything I dreamed, as were the girls' bouquets. The church and candles were perfect, and the room... oh my, the room. It was absolutely perfect. You took all of my crazy ideas and blended them seamlessly into one, gorgeous, piece of art. Everyone kept saying how beautiful it all was, and my dad can't stop (still) talking about how the colors of the bouquets looked so amazing with the our dresses. As far as photos, please please send them to everyone! Send brides my email address & phone number for a reference, so that I can tell them how amazing you were to work with, and how your energy only made me more excited about the big day. I cannot wait to recommend you to others who are getting married in CT and the surrounding area... you truly made my wedding day the most beautiful day it could possibly be, and I would do it all over again, with you, in a heartbeat!" Also worth mentioning - Diane got in a car accident on the day of my wedding. To this day I don't know what happened, or if anything was damaged, but the whole thing went off without a hitch. Everything was perfect, and I would never have known. The only reason I DID know was because she called my bridesmaid to say the boutonnieres would be delivered to our first look location instead of the hotel. Had she not said that, I would have been totally oblivious! I mention this because it showcases the professionalism of Diane and her team, and their ability to adapt to circumstances completely out of their control. There are bound to be glitches on your wedding day, but if your vendors can roll with the punches, you may never know they happened!

Diane was wonderful to work with and has a ton of expertise and flexibility working with brides and couples varied visions and floral needs. I am happy we chose her and I would not go back on our choice, but we did have a bit of trouble every now and then with keeping in contact and being sure our vision was consistent with her planning. I did love meeting her in person and her energy is incredible infectious and it's hard not to get excited about planning when you're with her. She has wonderful ideas, not just about floral aspects, but all decor and can be a great resource for ideas.

Our only large complaint was that our flowers for the mothers, dads, and boutonnieres for the groomsmen were not delivered to the correct venue for our ceremony. We are not sure where the discrepancy occurred, but somehow they were lost in the shuffle, which was a downer, but did not disappoint us as her floral choices for the reception and bouquets were top-notch. Diane was also very apologetic, assuring us this is not normal, and refunded us rather quickly for missing out on the flowers. Overall, I'd recommend Diane to any couple looking for a wonderful, flexible florist.

I normally never write reviews, however, I feel compelled to write one for Diane. I could not have asked for a better florist! If I could, I would give her 10 stars! She is creative, fun and incredibly caring. She listens and definitely works with your budget. I knew when I met her that I had nothing to worry about and I was completely right. Everything she did was flawless!

Diane was amazing! When we first met with her I was very worried that this was going to be so expensive we couldn't afford it as her pictures were all so amazing! She was extremely flexible working with us on price and also offering ideas and recommendations! There are a lot of little details that go along with the flowers and Diane made everything work seamlessly and easily! As I did most of the detailed planning, she not only helped with Flowers but also anything else I had a question on. She was fantastic! The proof was in the numerous compliments we received in regards to the flowers and decorations at the wedding! Until then I never realized people actually noticed those things and when I did I was ecstatic that we used Diane & Custom Floral Design!

It was very easy choosing Diane as my. Diane did my sisters years two years ago and everything was so beautiful. I didn’t waste any time researching or comparison prices for my wedding. In my option, when you find the best why look further. I wanted tall candelabras as my centerpieces with large orchids cascading. My vision was cream flowers, candelabras, candles everywhere. I was going for a very romantic, elegant and timeless look to fit my venue. Diane was able to perfectly capture my vision. All the little details and touches that Diane puts into her work made my wedding completely amazing. My boutique and bridesmaids was equally gorgeous. I would recommended Diane to anyone getting married. Her work is exceptional and she is a lovely person. A true pleasure to work it.

I do not normally write reviews but I was so blown away by Diane and her work that I couldn't pass the opportunity. I wish there were more stars to give Diane. She is truly amazing and I could not imagine trusting anyone else to have done our flowers for our wedding. Diane is SO much more than a florist. She has so many amazing ideas and her creativity is truly remarkable. Her taste is impeccable and she really captured our vision and made it even better. Our flowers turned out absolutely beautiful and it was everything my husband and I imagined and more. Our reception site even asked our photographer for pictures of the tables so that they can use them in their brochures. Diane always made me feel at ease. After every meeting with Diane, I walked away with excitement and peace knowing that our flowers would be amazing. Her effervescent personality is contagious; it is truly impossible to be unhappy around Diane. My husband always appreciated this aspect, particularly when I was stressed out! She was beyond accommodating, flexible, responsive, attentive, and so much more. On the day of our wedding, Diane arrived with our beautiful bouquets. I was in the middle of getting my hair done. She told me to sit back and relax and assured me that she would take care of everything. And that's exactly what she did. She ensured that everyone was taken care of and that every detail was perfect. There was a last minute change in our wedding where my cousin had to walk my mom down the aisle. Diane quickly made up a boutonniere for him and pinned it on him in a matter of seconds - and it looked absolutely beautiful! She fluffed my dress, fixed my train, and provided me tons of support and guidance before my big walk down the aisle with my dad. She was always calm, sweet, and incredibly professional. Her attention to detail is unbelievable and she went above and beyond for us. She is the absolute BEST! I would recommend Diane to others in a heart beat. Having Diane as part of our wedding was one of the best decisions we made. I am forever grateful to her for how beautiful our wedding turned out. -Karla and Mark

The minute we started talking to Diane, we knew that we wanted her as our florist! She is very good at what she does and is very passionate about every wedding. She provided great suggestions along with a wide array of flowers to match our color scheme. We loved being able to see the actual size, shape, etc. of the centerpiece vases when we met with her in person.

The day of the wedding, Diane brought the bouquets to the hotel room and when I saw my bouquet I was speechless! It was the most beautiful bouquet I had ever seen! Not to mention the rest of the bouquets, centerpieces and floral arrangements blew us away. Plus, a few days before the wedding I asked for a couple of adjustments and she made them without any hesitation!

I think every guest at the wedding commented about the flowers being the most amazing display people had seen at a wedding! Thank you Diane, you made our wedding a day none of us will ever forget!

Diane Gaudett of Custom Floral Designs came highly recommended to us, and I would highly recommend her to others. When I walked into our reception room for the first time the day of our wedding, I just grinned from ear to ear. Everything…EVERYTHING…was just as I had imagined it…AND MORE!! My vision…my dream....had come true!! All throughout the night I would stop…look around…and just take in how beautiful everything looked. Diane has a modern and fun style. She presents herself this way…and her work is executed this way. She is very sweet and energetic…and will work with you until your vision is nailed down. I found choosing flowers to be the hardest part of wedding planning for the simple fact that there are no price tags. Be up front with your florist about your budget right from the start. Diane worked with us…remained within our budget…and our wedding was just as beautiful and elegant as we had hoped it would be!! I could not be happier with how everything turn out!! A big thank you to Diane for that!!

We chose Diane to be our florist because of the attention to detail and wonderful ideas she had. Unfortunately, they didnt come to fruition on our special day. Although the flowers were absolutely beautiful, my bouquet was not cascading, the bouquets on the chairs looked like stemmed flowers quickly wrapped with a bow. The centerpieces were to have flowers hanging from them and the only two that had flowers, there were maybe six flowers. The low centerpieces were to have lots of texture, and did not. The cake table, Diane had "some great ideas" and wanted to "run with it", which I agreed to. The table had a vine around the cake, not what I expected. On our day she agreed that she diverted from what we agreed to. In our eyes, Diane was a big expense and we expected more. Maybe we werent the biggest paying customer, but we were a customer and we expected her to come through with what we agreed on. If you want to spend thousands of dollars for a florist, I am sure you will be pleased. But if you only have a few thousand dollars, I would find some one alot smaller who will fulfill your floral dreams. Also, please make sure your contract pays special attention to EVERY detail. We did not, and we dont have any recourse now.

Diane did a great job on bridal bouquet, bridesmaids and groom/groomsmen boutonnieres as well as advising us in all aspects of the wedding but as for the ideas we had discussed for the table centerpieces we were very disappointed to say the least! Looking back on our day the centerpieces were nowhere near what we had discussed except for some wreaths we had chosen. We did not have a huge budget for flowers but it was reasonable. We trusted her to make the flower decisions and we were not too happy with the execution. She put 3 or 4 calla lilies in one vase for some tables that was it! Our theme was Fall and our table clothes were red she put these ugly pink flowers in the vases, people were taking them off the table because they couldn't see over them! We had also discussed how many people were in our bridal/groom parties and the day of the wedding we were missing a bouquet! I am nearly positive that we had discussed prior to the wedding how many were in the parties although in the original contract we were down one bridesmaid, I know I had told her about the extra bridesmaid. She is a very high end florist I would not suggest going to her unless you have a big budget!

My wedding planner referred us to Diane and we are so thankful that she did! Diane was amazing and totally got what I was going for. I had a lot of color I wanted to incorporate to go along with my sunset theme and Diane was able to perfectly capture the sunset colors in the flower choices and centerpiece designs. My bouquet was MAGICAL and my bridesmaids' bouquets were perfection as well. We had a lot of flowers and areas that needed decoration - the ceremony, the cocktail patio area, the dining area, and a bunch of little nooks and crannies (i.e. mantlepieces, escort card table, etc.) that needed decoration and everything turned out absolutely fabulous. I wanted to have different arrangements in various places and Diane was able to keep the theme and overall look continuous while still keeping things different and interesting. Diane's arrangements really were exquisite and my wedding would not have been as beautiful and fluid without her. She was also able to work within our set budget while still executing my vision perfectly.

Our ceremony/reception took place at Saint Clements Castle, and the flowers were absolutely amazing! Exactly what I envisioned, these flowers were both beautiful, and whimsical. Everything looked gorgeous, and I will definitely recommend her services!


**Reason for .5 star off: I was a bit upset when one of my groomsmen did not receive his boutonniere, but when this was noticed, she quickly pulled a flower from a centerpiece and made it into a new one for him... though, I was still charged for one?**
