I am so lucky to have found Flowers by Mary Elizabeth. I was really nervous about flowers because after meeting with a few other vendors, I was beginning to think I couldn't afford them. The quotes I got from people were double what I had in my budget and I even had one florist tell me that I needed to either lower my expectations or raise my budget.

When I talked to Mary via email for the first time, I was immediately impressed. She was able to put together a package that was everything I wanted - and right at my budgeted number. Mary was extremely helpful during the planning stages, and always responded to my emails quickly. She set up a gorgeous birchwood chuppah for our ceremony as well, and it looked so perfect in our garden venue.

All of the flowers were gorgeous. I know nothing about flowers, so I basically told Mary our color scheme and let her pick the flowers. They did not disappoint. My bouquet was beautiful with coral roses and white peonys. I had even sent Mary a sample fabric swatch from the groomsmen's tuxes and she was able to use ribbon that matched perfectly!

The centerpieces and all of the other bouquets, boutenniers, and coursages looked beautiful. It was everything I wanted and I would absolutely recommend Flowers by Mary Elizabeth to any bride!

We can't say enough about how pleased we were with Mary and her daughter, Maureen of "Flowers by Mary Elizabeth". Several months before my wedding, they met with my mother and me at my wedding venue. We discussed my plans and ideas for flowers and both Mary and Maureen were extremely helpful with suggestions, but always mindful of my expectations and budget. As the date of my wedding approached, Mary checked in with us occasionally, and she even went out of her way to find a particular item for my table arrangements.

We always felt comfortable in knowing we could depend on Mary and Maureen. My bouquet and all the personal flowers were wonderful, and the hotel ballroom looked even more beautiful than I could have imagined.

Mary and Maureen were super! They were friendly, helpful, and professional, and we highly recommend them to all!

I would highly recommend Mary Elizabeth to coordinate flowers for any event. She was so wonderful and helpful to work with and I was very impressed with the quality of the flowers for my wedding. She provided flowers for the church, reception (cake, entrance way, and dinner tables), and all the bridesmaids/groomsmen/family and my bridal bouquet. I received so many compliments on all of them and they look spectacular in my pictures. She was very professional and the service/quality she delivered was a great value.

Mary was wonderful to work with on our wedding flowers. She had great ideas and we worked together to come up with beautiful arrangements for our personal flowers and for the centerpieces. In addition, Mary was very helpful when assisting us in selecting the flowers we wanted at a reasonable cost.

We appreciated that she worked with us so we could see a sample of our centerpieces during our food tasting. After we viewed the samples she was very flexible and responsive in making our requested changes.

On wedding day our flowers arrived on time, in great condition, and they looked exactly like what we discussed during our meetings.

We are very thankful to Mary and her daughter Maureen for giving us the flowers we wanted at a great price.

Mary Elizabeth was fantastic to work with. My wife and I came to her with ideas and a vision, and she was able to craft exactly what we had in mind. On top of that, her pricing was very reasonable.
Mary created a beautiful arch for us, along with aisle runners, bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces.

She met with us in center city to discuss ideas, and she also offered to deliver the bouquets and boutonnieres to us in center city the day before the wedding! A huge plus, reducing stress.

We'd definitely recommend her!

Mary Elizabeth was by far my most accommodating and flexible vendor. We have several meetings throughout the planning process and she always met me close to my workplace in Center City Philadelphia so we could meet on my lunch break. In addition, I provided all the vases for my centerpieces to her and she actually came to my house to pick them up! I gave her many inspiration pictures of my vision for my flowers and she delivered! All the bouquets, centerpieces, ceremony flowers etc. turned out exactly as I wanted and looked beautiful! On our wedding day my husband and I had our formal pictures taken early in the day so she actually delivered all the flowers in the afternoon and then came back to the venue later to set up the tables. I really appreciated her flexibility throughout the process. She does really beautiful work and I highly recommend Mary Elizabeth to other brides. Thank you so much Mary Elizabeth for making my wedding ceremony and reception so beautiful!

Working with Mary and her daughter on the flowers for my wedding was an absolute pleasure! Mary has such an eye for flowers, she has such beautiful creations. She created a mockup for my centerpieces that she showed me during our very first meeting. I absolutely loved my flowers when I saw them the day of the wedding. She was very flexible delivering flowers to different locations, church, hotels, reception venue, etc. On top of everything, her cost was a fraction of what other vendors quoted me! Highly recommend Mary Elizabeth!

Mary did a fabulous job with our wedding flowers. She is a pleasure to work with and gave us a quote that met my vision and budget. She delivered gorgeous flowers, was 100% on time, delivered to 3 different locations, and collected the perfect glass containers for my request for wildflower centerpieces. I highly recommend Mary.

Mary was able to work well within our budget to make us absolutely beautiful flowers for our wedding. She was able to work with our visions to make the bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages exactly how I wanted them. She was also able to help us order the flowers we wanted for our centerpieces (my husband hand made the centerpieces and all we needed were the flowers). She was even so gracious as to drive to a midpoint the day before our wedding to meet my husband and drop off the centerpiece flowers so we could assemble them. Mary was an absolute joy to work with!

Mary was an absolute delight to work with. I sought her out less than 1 month before the wedding and I feel so fortunate that she was available.

After my original DIY plans for branch centerpieces got denied, I was in a desperate search for a reliable florist who could work with my tight timeline and even tighter budget to transform our Ritz ballroom into a beautiful, classy place with 18 centerpieces, and also to prepare 8 bouquets and 15 bouts for the bridal party / parents.

I absolutely loved my bouquet. I wanted some anemones among large white flowers as black accents, because my wedding colors were black and white. She was able to find anemones and stay within my budget - they were breathtaking and the bouquet was exactly what I imagined. The centerpieces were beautiful and perfect for the fancy ballroom. They were lush and full, with hydrangeas, lilies, roses, and black lotus pods. Nobody would have guessed that these were made on a tight budget.

The only thing is that my husband's bout, made with two anemones to match my bouquet, did not last the afternoon. Luckily, Mary had brought extra bouts made with hydrangea sprigs, so he ended up wearing that for the ceremony and the rest of the night. But this is mostly my fault, since I specifically requested anemones for my husband.

I appreciated her for her flexibility, friendliness, professionalism and for respecting my vision for the wedding day. I especially appreciated how communicative she was and how she was able to accommodate last minute changes.

The value for the price is right and she does an amazing job! Very responsive and a great eye for all things beautiful. She even had fun ideas that we would have never thought of. Easy to work with and she did a great job.

She came up with the idea of having the fabric of my husbands kilt around the stems of the bouquet to match and she found it on her own.

She reponded timely with emails and phone calls and was a gem of a find!!!

After splurging on a few other aspects of the wedding, we wanted to stick to the basics with flowers. From our budget perspective, Flowers by Mary Elizabeth was an excellent choice. Mary was so pleasant to work with – flexible in scheduling meetings and prompt to respond to emails + phone calls. She used my vision to design the centerpieces and bouquets with the colors and flowers I had in mind. She was very willing to work inside our budget and made suggestions for saving $ without losing visual impact. Our centerpieces, bouquets, and boutonnières came out beautiful and looked fresh all night. They were delivered promptly and set up correctly. The final total was well inside our budget. Would highly recommend for a bride looking to save on flowers without sacrificing quality and style.

Mary made our bouquets and took the gold Manzanita branch centerpieces I had made and arranged them with orchids. Everything looked so much more expensive than it was and she was so easy to work with. She was the only florist who didn’t laugh at my budget and was willing to work with me to give me the look I wanted without breaking the bank. She also went out of her way to pick some stuff up from us not once but twice.

Mary Elizabeth was the only florist I contacted who took my bouquet request (all billy ball/craspedia) and didn't try to talk me out of it. She was encouraging when I had the idea to use ribbon imported from India for the bouquet wraps, and delivered all the bouquets exactly as we had discussed. Her pricing is also very competitive compared to others in the area.

Flowers by Mary Elizabeth was a real find! The flowers for my May 2012 wedding were absolutely gorgeous and exactly what I had envisioned. I must admit, though, that when I first met with Mary Elizabeth at my local Starbucks, I was little skeptical of her professionalism. Mary Elizabeth came to that meeting with magazines and flower catalogues instead of a portfolio, and I was afraid that doing floral arrangements was more of a hobby to her than a business. I’m happy to say that I completely misjudged Mary Elizabeth. She truly listened to what I had to say, and made my vision for the centerpieces and bouquets come true. Because she has very little overhead (she does not have a shop and runs her business out of her home) we were able to add lots of little extras such as an arch for the ceremony and flowers along the aisle. In short, I’d recommend her service to anyone. Excellent value and responsiveness!

What beautiful work!
Mary was amazing to work with! I met with her several times to work out some of the changing details to my flower plans and she was always so patient and helpful. The flowers were amazing. She was even able to incorporate some special requests. For the price the value was fantastic. Everyone said how beautiful the bouquets were and mine is still going 3 weeks later!! One point to note is Mary's professionalism and dedication to her brides. Three days before my wedding the special rare roses for my bouquet did not arrive. Mary called to help me pick an alternative. The part that really impressed me was eventhough I had picked my alternate an accepted my bad luck....Mary called every wholesaler in the area and surprised me at my wedding with the very fairy tale flowers I had given up on. This really touched me that she would go to all that extra work to make my vision come to life. Thanks Mary!!! I'm reccomending all my brides-to-be girlfriends to you!!

Mary did a fabulous job with all of the flowers for my wedding even though we didn't meet in person until my wedding day, since I live in Oregon.

Mary elizabeth was wonderful, the flowers she did for our wedding was exactly what i wanted. The groomsmen maybe should of had more flowers added to their boutineers but was not a big deal. The colors turned out to look beautiful with the bridesmaid dresses, and i loved my flowers. the centerpieces were beautiful as well. Mary elizabeth added containers to the centerpieces that matched the exact theme/look of our wedding that we were going for (rustic /wood type of theme)

Flowers by Mary Elizabeth did an absolutely fantastic job for our wedding. Mary was a pleasure to work with. Mary McVeigh knew exactly what I wanted for decorations, center pieces, bouquets, and boutonnieres. Our wedding was at a marina and we wanted the flower arrangements to compliment the view of the water. Mary found unique blue glass vases for the tables and the flowers couldn't have been more perfect. She even loaned us a bird cage so the guests had a decorative place for cards. She instantly got a sense of my style and it truly showed through with the flower arrangements. Mary helped us stay within our budget without sacrificing beauty or style. I would recommend Flowers by Mary Elizabeth to any bride.

Flowers were very important to me on my special day. I spent countless hours searching the internet for the perfect pictures that would capture my vision for the bouquets, arrangements, etc. My bouquet (which consisted off all pink peonies) turned out absolutely amazing. The bridesmaids bouquets were beautiful (roses/ranunculus/hydrangeas) although the roses were not exactly the color I had requested but it looked nice nonetheless.

We used Mary for our flowers for our wedding on June 9th 2012 in Phoenixville, Pa. Mary really helped us to work with in our budget and still get all the flowers we needed. Everything turned out beautifully. My only issue was the Mary told me someone else would be dropping off and setting up the flowers because she had something else going on that day. That was completely fine with me. Until, the Thursday before my Saturday wedding I got a call from someone (the lady who was supposed to be delivering the flowers) saying that she was the one actually ARRANGING them and makinthe bouquets and she had a few questions. While I'm glad she did call to get information from me, I was upset because I had never actually met with this woman and now she was in charger of executing the vision. This made me think the multiple visits with Mary had been for nothing since the woman who did them didn't know many of the details we discussed. And when she arrived she My mom and mother in law had to help her figure out where to put each vase.

In the end, everything really was gorgeous. I just wished I had known in advance so I was confident that the person doing my flowers actually understood my vision and not have to worry about it two days before the wedding.

My wedding planner, Christina Hill of cHill Weddings, referred me to Flowers by Mary Elizabeth. At that point, I had a floral design for the reception and my bouquet in mind, and I needed someone to execute it while sticking to the budget. Mary came in well under budget and had good ideas about what would work and what wouldn't. She came up with creative ideas, and when I didn't really like one of her ideas, she was open to all of my feedback and suggestions. She really just wanted my mom and I to be happy, which was nice to see. I also hadn't given her much direction about things like the cake flowers or the centerpieces for the square tables (I just told her that I wanted a number of square vases of varying heights, each with different white flowers), and what she came up with was great.

However, when we arrived at the museum, it was clear that the setup of the chuppah was wrong. Considering that my mom had gone over to Mary's house and they had had a meeting for over an hour about what the chuppah set-up would be like, it was very strange that it was setup like it was. Further, the fact that Cory (the groom) had to oversee Christina and Mary to make sure that it was fixed correctly is unacceptable. If they needed clarification on how it was setup or needed to practice, they should have done it beforehand. Considering that they only had an hour to setup the ceremony and cocktail hour, they should not have wasted it playing around with the chuppah configuration. Fixing the chuppah was the last thing Cory should have been doing in the minutes before he got married. I think the problem stemmed from the fact that Mary is more of a big picture person, rather than someone who focuses on the little details, which didn't work well for the chuppah setup.

At the end of the day, however, the end result was really beautiful. After it was fixed, the chuppah was exactly what my mom and I wanted and the quality of the flowers was beautiful. While I wouldn't work with Mary again, I recommend her to any bride that isn't as detail-oriented as I am.
