Flora designed our wedding flowers and arrangements and I couldn't have been more pleased! After meeting with a couple other florists and feeling as though none of them really understood what I was looking for, I met Chuck at Flora and he was brilliant! First things first, I know nothing about flowers, types of flowers etc. I showed him pictures and described what I was looking for and he got it to a "T"! He went through a booklet and showed me different flowers that fit with what I described to give me an idea. Then he started pulling together a little mock bouquet of what he had in the shop to really give me a visual, which completely confirmed my decision to go with Flora! No other shop had done that. Fast forward to the day of, delivery and set up were done perfectly and when I received the bridal party flowers to my hotel I almost was in tears because they were EXACTLY how I had imagined and absolutely perfect. Flora and Chuck really made my day perfect with those flowers! Thank you!!

Chuck was great from start to finish. He took the time to understand what I wanted for our wedding flowers, and he delivered it perfectly with very little further input (and, most important, no worrying) from me! Everything was gorgeous, delivered on time, and promptly picked up. Thanks, Chuck!

Randy and Flora were one of the best choices I made for our wedding. Randy worked with me from the moment I met him up until my wedding day to help me get the flowers and look I wanted, all staying within my budget. When I saw the flowers that day I was surprised because they were even better than what I had imagined! Many, Many people commented on how great the flowers were and how beautiful the color scheme was. You will not regret choosing Flora for your wedding florist. And if you get the chance, work with Randy!

Flora was wonderful for my flowers! We had them design the centerpieces for the tables and the flowers for the wedding party. The centerpieces were amazing. Flora had great ideas in helping me decide which centerpieces to use and their designers did an amazing job. They were willing to work with me in my budget which was great, too!

I had to deal with a change in my contact person and I was very upset, but Randy, my new contact was wonderful and put my fears to ease. My wedding flowers were exactly what I wanted and I thought everything turned out gorgeous! They even ordered special flowers for me at the last minute because Randy thought they would be perfect with my centerpieces. I was a very picky bride about my flowers and I was extremely happy with the results from Flora.

The best thing about working with Flora is they gave me exactly what I wanted for my wedding. I didn't focus too much on flowers. Instead of turning me away or talking me into something more than I wanted, like many other forists I talked to, Flora listened to me and delivered exactly what I asked for.

My bridal bouquet was mango calla lilies with rhinestone accents throughout. It was simply stunning. My groom had a mathing calla lily from my bouquet. The girls carried a single bird of paradise with the stem wrapped in gold wire- my favorite part! The groomsmen had deconstructed bird of paradise boutennieres. Gorgeous.

Flora did a beautiful job on our wedding. They were very reasonably priced. And the best part about them is they listened to what I wanted and delivered accordingly.

Flora was amazing. From our initial meeting I KNEW we were on the same page. Everything they suggested filled in the gaps where I wasn't sure about something perfectly. What they created was exactly what I imagined - except better. And their customer service is impeccable. They were totally flexible in terms of dropping of flowers for the wedding party at a different location from the venue, so wonderful. I felt like we were working with close friends who truly cared about us. I know they did.

Flora is a fabulous vendor for weddings! Gretchen helped design floral pieces that were innovative and fit into out budget without a hitch! We loved the little touches that everyone had: my bouquet was gorgeous, as were the men's flora works. The only challenge was transportation for the flowers post-wedding but Flora was phenomenal with all the pre-and during wedding details!

We worked with Gretchen and she was extremely friendly, professional, creative and supportive. Our flowers were beautiful -- in fact, my bouquet was almost identical to the inspiration photo I provided. They were easy to work with and their prices were competitive with other Chicago florists -- plus they have no minimum size order so they're perfect for small or large weddings. We were slightly disappointed that Gretchen wasn't there for set-up on the day of our wedding, but her associate did a good job and was prompt and courteous.

Before I met Gretchen I had talked to three other florists -- I was thrilled to find her to be a breath of fresh air. I had no wedding party, a modest reception, and a limited budget and had started feeling like the previous florists weren't interested in my comparatively meager needs. Gretchen immediately made me feel that my expectations were reasonable and that I could have beautiful floral treatments within the budget I required.
She was easy to work with -- full of suggestions and ideas. She offered alternatives when things needed to be adjusted for the sake of budget, taste, or logistics. She was creative in her problem solving and made me feel as though I wasn't skimping on anything.
She was a gracious presence throughout the wedding planning. I believed that she was excited about working with me and truly wanted Flora's presence at the wedding to enhance the day for everyone involved. It was nice to feel so confident in my choice of florist.
My wedding day went by quickly, but I remember her wishing me well and being excited about my wedding day. She was also kind and gentle with my mother and grandmother as she put on their corsages.
I feel that everything turned out wonderfully -- the bouquet, corsages, ceremony flowers, centerpieces, cake. They were minimal and casual, yet, I believe, still looked elegant and rich.
As far as cost goes, I believe Flora is on par with other florists I spoke with, if not a bit more economical. I feel this is largely due to their generous policy to allow rental of votives and vases instead of requiring us to purchase them. I'm quite happy I didn't have to deal with distributing or gathering 100 votives and 30 vases at the end of the evening.
