Rusted Window was such a blessing to us. When our florist dropped us two weeks (yes two weeks!) before our wedding date, we were at a complete loss. We stopped by Rusted Window in hopes of finding someone that could work with us, and we were certainly in the right place. When we stepped in the shop and met with Samantha, we immediately felt peace come over us. She was sweet, friendly, and apologetic about our situation. Within an hour, she had given us a quote for our table arrangements and event provided glassware to rent free of charge. The arrangements were exactly what we had envisioned, and everything was delivered promptly on the day of our wedding. Our only regret is that we hadn't booked Rusted Window right from the start! Thanks for making our day magical.

Staci was very nice and pleasant to work with, but is extremely difficult to get a hold of. It takes about a week to hear back from her, which for a stressed out bride, isn't fun. She had great ideas and although the wedding ended up turning out beautiful, it wasn't exactly what we talked about. Ideas, such as rhinestones on the bouquet, were forgotten even though they were discussed. Just little details but still disappointing. If you want extra things done, you will definitely pay for it, so make sure you ASK about everything (like flowers for the cake, etc). Some of my flowers were wilting by the end of the ceremony, but I don't think anyone could tell. The colors were beautiful but not what we ordered. Something about the flowers "coming in wrong". Overall, I was pleased with how things turned out and she did a great job, but like I said, it wasn't exactly what we had discussed and the difficulty of getting ahold of her was stressful. I was out of town which made it worse, but once I got into town for the wedding, it was easiest just to pop in to the store.

Vendor was rude to parents and the bride. Vendor over priced items stating she already purchased them even though she didn't ask us first. Vendor brought flowers the correct time of the day. Flowers started dying and falling off before the ceremony. Flowers didn't last through the reception. If you want a rude vendor, dying flowers during your wedding, and someone who tells you that you are wrong, and who sends snarky emails then this is your vendor. Dont waste your time, or money. Hire someone else.

My mom and I had gone to another florist, prior to meeting with Stacy at Design Group. We were resigned to the fact that with our budget, we could just not get what we wanted. Further, the previous florist had difficulty understanding my vision for the flowers and centerpieces. Well, let me tell you the second we walked into Design Group and sat down with Stacy, I breathed a HUGE sigh of relief! Stacy is SOOO creative and completely understood my vision! She stayed within our budget and provided GORGEOUS centerpieces and accents for our venue! She utilized many items that we made and/or bought and completely re-vamped them to suite our ceremony and reception!

My bouquet was beyond anything I ever could have imagined! It was absolutely STUNNING! I later found out that in order to make my bouquet, Stacy went early morning on Saturday to pick up flowers from the airport to get the peonies (out of season) that I had said I wanted so badly. My bridesmaids flowers were beautiful and exactly what we had discussed. The family corsages were beautiful and attached with pearl bracelets that my mother, mother in law, and grandmothers all loved. The boutineers for the groom and groomsmen were succulents and received so many compliments! They were so unique and beautiful!

When I arrived to the venue on the day of the wedding, I literally was moved to tears. It was beyond my expectations beautiful!! The personalized touches and going "above and beyond" was absolutely incredible! I am so thankful for Stacy and her team at Design Group! We received and continue to receive numerous compliments regarding our centerpieces and overall decor. It was such a wonderful and perfect evening! If you love shabby chic, eclectic, and glamour Stacy is your lady!! :)

Oh, where to begin with Design Group... First of all, they were EXTREMELY difficult to reach. NOT ONCE was I able to get ahold of them by phone. Panicked pleas for return calls went unanswered; the best I got was a half-hearted "sorry" via Facebook when their phone lines (ALL OF THEM) went down or when they simply didn't answer the phone. When my mom went to drop off vases for them to use, she had to bang on the door like a madwoman to get anyone to answer (even though it was during business hours and their sign still said "Open" - the door was locked!!).

And then there's the actual flowers... Here's a *BRIEF* summary: they (initially) forgot two of the vases I gave them (which I *specifically* expressed concern about beforehand since they were small and not specifically listed on our invoice); the two buckets we gave them to use were COVERED in grubby (WHITE) fingerprints that you could see from several feet away; the bouquet vases they brought (rentals) were the "cheap"-looking ones I specifically said I did NOT want; the centerpieces weren't alternating solid colors as requested (which made the alternating colors of table linens pointless); and, worst of all, they did not use the primary flowers I requested (excepting the corsages and boutonnieres - which were pretty poorly executed size-wise - and perhaps *my* bouquet). They didn't contact me to ask about substitutions because of limited stock or anything either - no explanation was given at all! Instead, they used the largest, most expensive fill flower you can get: white hydrangeas - which (again) I *SPECIFICALLY* said I did not like nor want. The arrangements (again, excepting only my bouquet, really) were also bizarrely or just plain poorly constructed. (ex. The bells of Ireland made it look like the kraken was attacking the light fixtures.)

My bouquet was beautiful, but that only makes the half-a$$ed quality of everything else that much more obvious and that much more disappointing.
