I contacted Jim Fabbrini one week before my wedding. He met with me that day to discuss what I wanted. Jim showed me some colors and flowers and an example of how he would create the bouquets. On the day of the event everything was delivered and set up. Everything was beautiful from the bouquets, to the boutonniere, to the corsages. I couldn't have been happier! Jim managed to exceed my expectations in a short time and for a reasonable price. Thank you Jim Fabbrini and Fabbrini Flowers!

I love Mr. Fabbrini! He was awesome and an absolute pleasure to work with. On the day of the wedding were short a wedding centerpiece, my fault, not his and he came through with something beautiful! He even made me a crown of flowers to wear for my reception of which I received numerous compliments for how good my hair smelled! I would use him again in a heartbeat and even my husband will only buy flowers from him. He makes you feel a part of his family!

Mr . Fabrinni was wonderful from start to finish. He took a lot of time with us to choose the right flowers for our wedding. The flowers were beautiful and my silk bouquet is gorgeous. I am going to keep it in a glass case to cherish forever. Thank you Mr. Fabrinni for helping to make my wedding day more perfect. : ) Catherine Hines

Jim was really nice. Very hard to get a hold of. 95% communication through email. I would have preferred the phone. He made my flowers beautiful they are still alive now. He did not follow through with the set up of the center peices. Seemed to be in a hurry when he dropped off the flowers. They did a great job overall. Just needs a few changes for communication and follow through with what they said they were going to dom

I went with Fabbrini's flowers for my wedding the did an outstanding job on everything I asked of them. They did all my bridal party flowers as well as everything for my reception. Jim did an amazing job incorporating all the colors I wanted. I was speechless when I saw the final product to my bouquet as well as the girls. I showed them a picture of what I was considering and he did an excellent job of matching the picture to what he gave me. They had gone to the venue and set up all the centerpieces exactly how I wanted to do. When I met with him he showed me each of the flowers and colors he was going to use in each of the bouquets as well as the center pieces and the flowers for the guys. I had a December wedding so he was able to incorporate the red and green to each of the bouquets and they turned out amazing. Two weeks later the flowers are still alive and in water. Jim did a fantastic job staying within our budget and we made changes as necessary as we went along.

When we met with Jim, he listened to what we were looking for and was able to show us some images of the types of flowers he thought would be perfect. He made us totally comfortable, we trusted him and left feeling that the flowers were going to be amazing. And when they were delivered - it was exactly what we envisioned! The flowers were beautiful - and the bride's bouquet was perfection! Delivered personally by Jim. He spent a few moments showing us how to pin the flowers on the groomsmen (which really helped) and also identified all of the various bouquets for the bridesmaids, grandmothers and special guests of honor. I would strongly recommend Fabbrini's Flowers to all - especially for your most important events.

Fabbrini's was a GREAT choice for our wedding! We just got married September 27th, 2013. I was not extremely set on any type of flower bouquet and look. Jim did a great job suggesting ideas and coming up with beautiful floral decor! Loved our sunflower bouquets, unity candle decor, and the bridal party's flowers! Overall, very happy with Fabbrini's!!!

Absolutely love Fabbrini's Flowers!!! What a wonderful job they did for our August Wedding! Jim Fabbrini, from our first meeting was so great to work with! Before our first meeting he has you fill out a questionnaire to get an idea of who you are and what your style is for the wedding. That extremely helped the process run smooth right from the get go. He is even in-tune with Pinterest and ask to see some of your pins! Loved that! Jim also did a great job staying within our budget. The bouquets he made for my bridesmaids and I were gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. He incorporated my "something borrowed" into my bouquet and made it look great! Everything he touched and created looked beautiful on my wedding day. Not only is Jim an amazing florist but a great person who cares about his work and making sure his clients are happy. Have now found our go-to florist!

My Mom used to work right next door to Fabbrini's Flowers so we thought we would meet with Jim (the owner) to see what he offered. I know nothing about flowers and had no idea what I wanted (other than what I saw on Pinterest) and Jim was so helpful. He wasn't pushy if I didn't want something that most brides do. I fell in love with one flower on Pinterest and showed it to him when we met with him. The flower was a blueish purple color which was not in my color scheme for the wedding. Jim knew exactly what the flower was and he was able to incorporate it into our bouquets and made them look beautiful.. I trusted Jim 100% and when he brought the flowers to the wedding I loved them. A lot of my guests commented on how pretty the flowers were. Also, Jim was very flexible with delivering the flowers and he was on time!! I definitely would recommend looking into Fabbrini's Flowers.

It was great working with Jim. He was able to make good suggestions and work within our budget. I was thrilled when I saw my bouquet - the most beautiful one that I have ever seen! Our centerpieces were exactly what we wanted - simple and elegant. My husband actually loved his boutonniere - it was classy and unique.

I literally walked into Jim's shop with no idea of colors and provided no direction whatsoever for him. However, we were thrilled with the flowers for our wedding. Bouquets were perfect. I wanted unstructured arrangements with lots of colors and he delivered. I really wanted peonies and he warned me they might not be available so we had a back up plan just in case. But the peonies were fabulous. He created a floral cake top for us and worked well with the cake creator and wedding planners. The wedding was two days ago and the flowers still fill our home and look gorgeous. The delivery was exactly on time. I have no complaints or recommendations for improvement.

I highly recommend Fabbrini’s for any wedding or event. Jim Fabbrini was a pleasure to work with and exceeded all of our expectations. The flowers were all so beautiful. He did a great job of helping us figure out what we wanted and then he turned that into a vision that he was very excited about and brought to life on our wedding day. Fabbrini coordinated with our venue and other vendors to make sure that our color scheme and design was consistent throughout the entire wedding. If you want confidence that a professional team will make your flowers perfect for your day, Fabbrini’s is the choice for you!

My husband and I worked with Jim Fabbrini, he was GREAT!! :) He set aside time to meet with us to determine exactly what we were looking for. He took as much time as needed and never made us feel rushed. He made great suggestions and really took the time to find what worked best for us based on our venue, colors, preferences, and cost. Jim was extremely knowledgeable and helped us to understand some of the options when we were unfamiliar with some of the flowers. He was professional as well as friendly which made it so easy to work with him. Our flowers were exactly what we asked for which of course we were excited about. He went above and beyond in a number of ways and we cannot thank him enough. We were MORE than pleased that we decided to work with him and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for flowers for any event!!

Jim was fantastic! All of the flowers looked beautiful and he managed to get cherry blossoms in January! He was very friendly during the whole process, and was really helpful during the day of- he made sure the bouquets looked perfect, and he even re did my veil when it was put in the wrong way. His prices are on par for the rest of the area, but he really produces! He also did the draping and lighting for our ceremony, which looked great! Thank you!

We had contacted a few other florists but when we met Jim at Fabbrini's we knew we wanted him to do our flowers for our upcoming wedding. I cannot speak more highly of Jim. He went over and above in making sure each detail of our flowers was exceptional. His extra touches (lighted vases, crystals on the table, personal time setting up at the venue) were so appreciated and the flowers were absolutely beautiful!!!!! We would highly recommend Fabbrini's for any special occasion.

My mother-in-law and I met with Jim prior to the event and were very impressed by the level of detail and care he took in getting to know exactly what I was looking for for the wedding. There was a bouquet missing the day of, but I spoke to Jim himself and he took care of having it delivered in plenty of time to make it to pictures. I was thrilled with all the flowers and the personal service and would definitely recommend Fabbrini's for any event!

I worked directly with Jim Fabbrini. He was very professional and willing to hear me out on my ideas for flowers. I told him the color combination I was looking for and came up with some great ideas. One of the colors I wanted to work into the flowers was a particular shade and he took a color sample and tried to match it as best as possible. I would have liked to see a mock-up of my bouquet beforehand but everything turned out well nevertheless. Jim was also willing to work with me on the pricing so that I could make my floral ideas for the wedding work.

After working with Fabbrini's Flowers for over a year, I knew when my special day came I would look no further than Fabbrini's Flowers. From our first meeting, I had total confidence that even without exactly describing what I was looking for, Fabbrini's would put together beautiful bouquets and centerpieces. On our wedding day, all of our flowers were perfect, and as I expected, they were exactly what I had envisioned for our "simple yet elegant" outdoor barn wedding.

Picking out flowers for a wedding is not something many grooms are interested in. So, thankfully, I had my wonderful Mother to help me. We made appointments with three different florists (Fabrini’s was our second). After having a terrible consultation with the first florist, I was nervous for my second appointment. However, shortly after sitting down with Jim Fabrini, I soon realized there was nothing to be nervous about. Jim took his time with my Mother and I during our consultation. I knew I wanted all roses for my bouquet but, that was about it. Based on my color scheme, and looking through books and photos of Jim’s, he was able to pick up on my key interests and knew the specific flowers and colors to put together. That day he showed me (with live flowers) what my center pieces would look like based on the colors we chose. It was amazing how quickly he put something together for me. We got a quote that day and after leaving, I didn’t even want to go to my third florist. We still kept that appointment and we were impressed but, ultimately, I had to go with my gut and that meant going with Fabrini’s Flowers as my florist. Prior to the wedding I needed to make a few changes and even some just days before the wedding, and Jim was very flexible with me. Two weeks before the wedding we went over everything and confirmed delivery times for the day of the wedding. Jim arrived at our hotel to deliver all the flowers to me and my girls. He then went to the groom’s hotel room to pin the boutonnieres on all of the men. My bouquet was all roses in pastel colors and it was absolutely gorgeous, especially my green roses! My girls’ bouquets were beautiful with a mixture of roses and other bright eye catching flowers. My junior bridesmaids had the “kissing balls” and they turned out perfect. For one of my flower girls, we had a wreath of baby’s breath and purple flowers made for her to wear in her hair and that turned out adorable. My centerpieces were gorgeous and I had several people comment on how lovely they were and they wanted to know what florist I used. I could not be happier with the quality of work and service that Jim and his staff provided to me prior to and on my wedding day! If you’re looking for a florist that’s easy to work with, can give you ideas and literally show you what he’s talking about, is affordable, listens to your wants/needs, and has a fabulous end result, then I HIGHLY recommend using Fabrini’s Flowers for your wedding day!

Jim Fabbrini is a pleasure to work with. My wedding flowers came out beautiful. He gave me a teacher discount and worked within my budget. After the first quote he gave me, I told him I couldn't go that high, and he immediately worked it out to meet by monetary needs.

Jim responds to e-mails right away, and personally delivers the flowers to your "getting ready" location. He even put the boutineers on the men's jackets before he left.

Highly recommended!!!

When I met with Jim for my upcoming wedding I didn't have many ideas of what I wanted for my flowers. Jim had so many wonderful ideas for my bouquet and beautiful centerpieces for my reception. When my wedding day came I knew that Lori who's their wedding designer would do a wonderful job. Fabbrini's delivered all the flowers with labels stating who they belonged to. I had forget a corsage for my reader and Jim had extra flowers and made the corsage right on the spot. If you need a florist for your wedding or upcoming event I definitely recommend Fabbrini's Flowers.

Fabbrini's Flowers did an amazing job with my wedding! I loved my flowers and my center pieces were great! They were reasonably priced and great to work with. I would highly recommend them!

In my consultation with Jim Fabrini back in January of 2011, I was extremely impressed! I came in with just a few requests. I wanted all white flowers for the bouquets and boutonnieres and large red or pink flowers for the centerpieces. He recommended flowers for the bouquets based on the lines of my dress--lilies and then added in some tulips for the bridesmaids (as I had told him that I like tulips). For the centerpieces, we discussed that I had vases that were 6"x6"x6". I explained that I wanted one big red or fushia colored flower to sit in this on top of the crystals that I had. I explained that my only request was not to use roses. He showed me some large flowers in the cooler and suggested a particular type of orchid that would be in season--He said that these would be a shade of red or purple and that putting two of them back to back would fill the vase and look like one large flower. He also said that you would deliver these to the reception space ready to put in the vases and that he would put one in to show us. (Looking back, I now realize he steered me toward all very expensive flowers!)

I booked this on the spot and paid my deposit. My contact with him over those first couple of weeks was great! Then, I did not hear from him again again. At our first meeting, he had stated that he would contact me to meet again about a month before the wedding to finalize details. I never heard from him. I emailed him 3 weeks before the wedding and did not receive a response. I then called a few days later. He seemed to have forgotten some of the details we had previously discussed--perhaps they were not written down? However, we discussed some details, such as the specific colors to wrap the boutonnieres, and I believed that everything would be fine.

Then, the wedding day came on June 10, 2011. He delivered just the bouquets to my room. Shortly after he left, we removed them from the vases to start pictures, and we noticed that they were a bit brown and petals were starting to fall off. We also noticed that the three bridesmaid bouquets were all different sizes and lengths. By the time we finished pictures, we had lost about 1/4 of the petals, and the yellow pollen was getting all over everything. (Our photographer said that all florists he has ever worked with put wax over the pollen so that it doesn't stain the dresses.) We did what we could and turned the bouquets in a way that they would look okay for the pictures.

There was also a minor problem with the boutonnieres... The one for the groom was supposed to be wrapped in the same diamond white as my bouquet, but instead, it was wrapped in a sheer white ribbon. My father's was supposed to be wrapped in a silver/gray ribbon, but instead, it was wrapped in black.

The biggest disappointment, however, were the flowers for the centerpieces. After Jim left, a friend of mine brought up the box he had left in the reception room that contained a stem of un-cut small white orchids. This was not anything like the large red/purple orchids that he had described, and they were not even ready to put in the vases. What upset me most, however, was his response when I called. He took about 45 minutes to return my call. His tone was very rude and he also implied that this was my fault because he ordered what he had written down. This is confusing to me because I did not come in telling him to order a particular flower, but rather, I went with his recommendations. The handful of flowers (4 or 5, I think, which looked like they were from Walgreens) that he later had "his driver" deliver, because I asked him to provide us with flowers that we could use (we still had 3 hours until the wedding ceremony and 4.5 hours until the reception), were useless, as there were not nearly enough of them. So, my matron of honor's husband found a flower shop on Michigan Avenue and went out and purchased the flowers from them for our 10 centerpieces!!!

I strongly advise you to look elsewhere. Perhaps Jim Fabrini was having a bad day, week, or month, but he has not made any effort to even apologize. I requested a portion of my money back from him, and he only responded to ask for pictures of the bouquets. I sent a picture and have not heard back....

I have worked with Fabbrini's flower several times before getting married and I would absolutely recommend Fabbrini's Flowers to anyone who wants fabulous, attentive services, and undivided attention in meetings. Jim Fabbrini is creative, knowledgeable and helpful to a couple that doesn't know much about flowers. They were also able to provide the most beautiful centerpieces that were a huge hit at the wedding!!! The flowers were stunning!!!!!! I can't thank Fabbrini's Flowers enough for everything they did for our wedding!!

It was truly a pleasure to work with Jim. His artistry and pride of workmanship really shine through. He asked questions none of the exclusive floral "designers" thought to ask. He was as excited about the flowers as we were. The flowers were absolutely beautiful and he totally understood what we envisioned!

Fabbrini's Flowers was a nice place to have 1/2 of my flowers done, my centerpieces were in silk & some big pieces for the ceremony too. All of my bouquets and boutonnieres & corsages were made by Fabbrini's and were exactly what I had wanted. I was not notified when my flowers arrived at the hall so I was not able to check and make sure that everything was delivered correctly. The boutonnieres and corsages were not labeled for anyone and we didn't realize until after the ceremony that our officiant's corsage was missing as well as my throw-away bouquet. We did receive credit for them, but it was disappointing not being able to have those flowers for pictures.

Fabbrini's Flowers did wonderful work for my recent wedding. I went in looking for a specific colored rose and they immediately knew what I was talking about. They also helped me figure out how to integrate my bold wedding colors into all aspects of my decor. I am so happy with how my ceremony and reception flowers turned out!
