I'm not really into flowers. I know nothing about them, couldn't name more than a handful of varieties, and am fairly ambivalent about them. In spite of that, I knew I wanted floral centerpieces for our wedding because I think that add such an elegant touch.

When I met with Alison, I only had vague directions to give her such as colors and that I liked flowers that had a lot of texture. She spent a lot of time gauging the overall look for the wedding -- she wanted to know what my dress was like, what my flower girls would be wearing, how we would describe our wedding, etc. I thought this was wonderful because I felt that she had a handle on what we were going for without actually talking extensively about flowers.

Throughout planning, Alison was a great resource whenever I had questions about what we should do with all aspects of our table decor and was a great person to bounce ideas off of.

On the day of the wedding, Alison arrived with centerpieces, ceremony flowers (essentially alter flowers, but without the church), candles galore, and bouquets. All of them were wonderful and all of them are holding up nearly a week later!

We went to a few floral shops to get quotes before selecting Distinctive Floral Designs. It was a little bit more expensive than the other shops, but notice I still gave the value a 5 star rating. Other shops charged so much more for delivery, set-up charges, rentals, etc., so I thought that we got more flowers for our money!

I absolutely loved working with Alison and I'm trying to think of when I could possibly use her services again!

Alison and her team provided the florals for our wedding and rehearsal dinner and were a complete pleasure to work with. Hiring her was one of the best wedding decisions we made. From the beginning, she was responsive, flexible, and extremely knowledgeable. Despite meeting and going over everything we wanted and our vision, I was still amazed at how beautiful the florals were when I actually saw them on my wedding day. Alison far exceeded my expectations. I can't tell you how many times I turned to my husband during the reception and said, "I can't believe how amazing the flowers look." All of the blooms were beautiful and we have received so many compliments on them. Alison and her team are truly talented and know what they're doing. Alison did an outstanding job of working within our budget while still perfectly bringing my vision to life. She was sensitive to our budget throughout the planning process and always made sure there would not be any surprise fees. I would not hesitate to use Alison again for any future floral needs and would highly recommend her services!!

I LOVE ALISON DE WIT and her team at Distinctive Floral Designs!!! She was absolutely fantastic and made the whole process so much fun! I could have chatted with her for hours and I think my mother actually did! Their work is just beautiful- romantic, elegant, and lush! I was able to relax and not worry about the flowers because I knew that whatever she did would look beautiful. I couldn't have asked for a more beautiful chuppah for my ceremony and she had a whole team setting it up. We met with 2 other florists and neither of them asked us about our budget like Alison did. She was also flexible and helped us think of ways to reuse flowers for both the ceremony and reception. I only wish I could have spent more time with her!

Alison is wonderful to work with. From our first meeting I knew she understood our vision and the flowers would be beautiful. Meeting with her was like having tea with a good friend!
She is the only florist we consulted who asked to see a picture of the wedding dress to get an idea of style and proportion. The bouquets and centerpieces were perfect. She also designed a beautiful chuppah (wedding canopy) which was the focal point of the ceremony.
She was also conscientious about our budget.
Alison and her team are the best

When I first met Alison I had very limited knowledge about wedding flowers and lacked a clear vision of what I wanted. Alison was so patient with me. She walked me through a ton of her portfolios and asked me many questions. She really took the time to get to know me and I loved her attention to detail. Her passion for what she does stood out in our conversations. When I received her proposal she had written out every small detail and painted a clear picture of her floral designs.

After speaking with a couple of other well known floral vendors in the DC area it was very clear to me that Alison was the front runner. She was the only one who I felt had really tried to get to know me as a client. She never rushed me in the decision making process and took time to explain a ton of things to me about weddings, flowers, lighting, etc. Her customer service and attention to detail completely won me over.

On the day of the wedding the flowers and decor of the ceremony and reception were stunning. We had so many quests come up to us during and after the event asking for our florist's contact information. We were truly blessed to have Alison as part of the team of people who made our wedding day so magical!

The best vendor for our wedding! I had tried to deal with other florists prior to finding out about Distinctive Floral Designs. Other florists took forever to respond and quoted astronomical costs. Alison de Witt was extremely sweet and so fast at responding to my e-mails (I am a very picky bride!). Her high centerpiece prices were cheaper than other florists' low ceterpiece prices. Alison exceeded my expectations with her floral masterpieces and I received many compliments from my guests. Flowers were delivered on time and I am confident I chose the best florist in the DC area.

Thank you so much, Alison!

V/R,

Katherine Williams

I was so happy to have Alison de Wit and her team at Distinctive Floral do the flowers and decor for my wedding! My mom and I spent a lovely afternoon with Alison at her home coming up with the design concept for my wedding. Alison completely understood the elegant but understated look we were trying to achieve and designed gorgeous floral arrangements that complemented the space beautifully. She also helped us to select linens and chairs that helped the room feel warm and inviting. Everything came together so well, and within the budget we had discussed with her. Best of all, in addition to being on top of everything, Alison is such a warm and wonderful person to work with -- all of our exchanges with her helped us really enjoy the wedding planning process. Highly recommend!

The flowers provided by Distinctive floral designs was the second biggest attraction next to the venue . They knocked it out of the park! The flowers were more beautiful than expected. Everyone kept commenting on how gorgeous the high and low centerpieces were. On top of it all, Alison was an absolute gem to work with. Thanks so much for taking my vision and turning it into a reality.

We used Distinctive Floral Designs for our wedding and couldn't be happier! The flowers were just beautiful and we received so many compliments, however I have to admit that the best part was working with Alison. She was a breath of fresh air during the planning process. If I was feeling stressed or overwhelmed with wedding planning, the second I heard from her, everything seemed to be better! Even from the first time we met her, she immediately understood us, our wedding, what we were going for and never tried to push anything on us. We had been quoted some very high and very low prices and she was honest with us about prices and worked with our budget. She was very responsive and tried to help with other parts of our wedding planning when some of our other vendors weren't being as helpful. If you have any hesitation at all, just go met with her once and you will understand!

Alison at Distinctive Floral is a gem. From the moment I met her, I knew she would be our florist. I know very little about flowers but from one chat she was able to take my vision for the flowers and turn into a total package for personal flowers and ceremony and reception décor. She was very mindful of my budget and worked with in it. She listened to the things that mattered to me and helped me incorporate flowers that my late mother loved into the floral theme. I felt like I was surrounded by my mom the whole time. It was very special. We also had to change wedding venues last minute due to emergency repairs at the original hotel and she was able to advise me on whether changes were needed or not to our scheme (it ended up what we originally picked worked for the space). She is very familiar with the regular venues in town and has great relationships with the managers there. I highly recommend hiring Alison and her team. You will not be disappointed.
