Diane is very responsive and professional. Throughout our time working together, we had several phone calls (about 4-5) discussing our special day. She was one of the more responsive vendors we worked with always returning e-mails within 24 hours. She is very personable and makes you feel like you're family. She provided us with centerpieces, ceremony decor, bouquets and boutonnieres, all within our budget. We did spend more on florals than many other vendors, but we received a lot for our money. The centerpieces and bouquets were more gorgeous than I ever imagined. I am not typically a flowers person, but was obsessed with the florals from my wedding and have them around my apartment as we speak. She was very flexible, allowing us to change the drop-off location and time provided during the week of the wedding. Overall, very happy with Diane and her team.

It's 4:00am and we are leaving on our Honeymoon, but I had to review Diane and here team before leaving. I can't say enough wonderful things about Diane. From our first meeting she was so very helpful. As a designer I had a very specific vision in my head. I was nervous about whether a floral designer would be able to really get what we wanted. Diane not only got it, she ran with it, and exceeded our wildest expectations!!! The room was breathtaking! I mean I really gasped when I walked into the ballroom and saw what Diane and her team had created. She was so easy to work with and gave me us so much more than I expected. For example: There were extra orchids from the centerpieces, so she put a bloom at each place setting, of course asking us if we liked it. We LOVED everything!! Diane is a creative genius and gave us a beautiful and elegant wedding that was unique. All of our guests commented on what stunning arrangements there were.

Diane was wonderful to work with, very nice and had lots of great ideas and suggestions. Our bouquets, wristlets, and the ceremony flowers where absolutely stunning. We rented gorgeous vases from her, and she stacked our vintage fairytale books around the room. I really loved our bouquets, they were just what I dreamed of.

For the cost, I was slightly disappointed in the table arrangements. There was so much filler and very little flowers... Over all her designs and the quality of flowers were great. I'd still highly recommend her, I just regret spending so much to upgrade the table arrangements and them not being what I wanted/described. I'd suggesting asking just how many flowers will be in the arrangements if you're going for tall table top arrangements. My guess would be we got 20 roses mixed in with bushels of filler, for about 3 times what I wanted to spend on them. They were still beautiful, just not what I imagined.

Diane is wonderful. I got married last June and the flowers blew me away. I had described what I wanted, but the bouquets were better than I could have imagined: really the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen. There was a slight mixup with the boutineers (entirely my fault) and she managed to construct extra ones for additional family members on the spot. I was incredibly impressed. Wedding flowers are expensive, but the service Diane provides is definitely worth it.

I could not be happier with the floral design that Diane Gaudett did for our June wedding-- I still love looking back at our photos and seeing the stunning arrangements Diane and her team put together for us. She is so sweet, bubbly, enthusiastic, and an absolutely joy to work with! My husband and I met with Diane 6 months before our wedding, and immediately felt comfortable fully trusting her with our flowers. I had a general idea of the look I wanted which Diane completely understood--even better than I did! The bouquets and centerpieces were even more incredible than I had imagined-- she so perfectly captured the feeling that I was after. She was willing to revise her proposal to work with our budget, and never pressured us to spend more than we were able to. Diane also did the flowers for my cousin's wedding a few months later, and I was blown away once again by her incredible work. I would highly recommend Custom Floral Designs!!

I got married on October 5th, 2014. Diane is a very pleasant lady and based on her work on her website and her features in magazines, I had very high expectations, and truly thought that she would be able to capture my vision (especially since I provided her with photos of my vision). My expectations were NOT met, especially considering how expensive her services are!!!

After months of communicating with Diane about what I wanted, sending photos of ideas I had and speaking several times on the phone and meeting a few times at her house, I really thought she had a good grasp of what I wanted. Apparently she didn't!! I sent her a photo of EXACTLY how I wanted my bouquet to look, which was very romantic, light, and gardeny, with a few tiny tweaks, and got something completely off and totally different! I was very disappointed on the wedding day to receive that bouquet but there was nothing to do be done. Same with my bridesmaids bouquets; they were completely different from what we had discussed. She added purple roses in our bouquets when I requested light lavender (but I didn't want lavender roses, I wanted other lavender flowers or even lavender itself!) My centerpieces were very pretty and closer to what I had wanted, but again she added this purple in and it threw off the look completely. I also hoped that for the price the centerpieces would be bigger but they weren't. My Mandap (Chuppah) was pretty and was closer to expectations. But overall the price we paid and the value we got was disappointing. I had really hoped i would be able to see my gardeny, romantic vision on my wedding day with the flowers but this did not happen.

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!
