My mom order the flowers from this company and I loved the color arrangement they made for my bouquet and my husband boutineet. The flowers was fresh and did not brown quickly. They we're very flexible on the times we can pick up the flowers. I absolutely loved all the flowers.

Could not have asked for someone to interpret our vision more clearly that Flowers Make Scents. When we first met at the shop, we pulled up my pinterest and scrolled through what we had been imagining, and the day-of our flowers were dead-on! We wanted a birch chuppah, and wow did they ever deliver us the most gorgeous chuppah, decorated perfectly with my mother's veil and my grandfathers prayer shawl. The flowers (yellow gerber daisies and billy balls) were PERFECT and the ribbons were exactly what we discussed and just made the whole ceremony and reception POP! Would absolutely recommend them to anyone looking for floral arrangements for a wedding or celebration.

Flowers Make Scents is truly a wonderful vendor to work with; you will not be disappointed with their service. Shari is such a sweet lady, and she works very hard to be sure she clearly understands your vision & gets it right. I love how she used my floral inspiration to help guide her and her assistants in creating the arrangements exactly as I had imagined them. She also lets brides come by a day or two before the wedding to give your stamp of approval prior to the big day. That certainly helps calm some pre-wedding jitters! Again, Shari and her staff are wonderful. I would certainly use them again & again!

Flowers Make Scents was recommended to me by a friend that is an event planner. She said she uses them for all of her events and that she has never been disappointed. I am SO glad that I listened to her! We met with Shari to go over the colors we wanted and brought her pictures of our ideas. She listened, gave her feedback on the flowers, told us ways to cut costs, and wasn't trying to force anything on us. She pulled up flowers online to show us flowers she was referring to, and made sure every detail was correctly written down on her list. The cost was very reasonable and came in under other vendors we spoke with.

We had 3 cylinder vases and had a Beta fish in the tallest one. She worked with us on the special water we needed to add, the rocks on the bottom, and adding the fish at the right time. When I came the day before the wedding for the walk through I was AMAZED at how awesome the flowers looked. They were more beautiful then I could have ever imagined.. I cried right in the store! When you have 1,000 details to worry about, it was so nice that I didn't have to worry about anything involving the flowers. I would HIGHLY recommend Flowers Make Scents to anyone, Shari was fabulous!

Ellen and Shari did a beautiful job with the flowers. They also made a fabric screen to cover some hinges on a bi-fold door. It was perfect. Thanks so much.

I used Flowers Make Scents for my wedding on 9/7/13. I wanted the wedding to have sort of an old, art-deco feel to it, and I knew that the flowers would be important in reflecting that theme while working in the confines of my budget. So I met with the owner, Ellen, and I showed her pictures and described which colors and flowers I liked while she took notes. The co-owner Shari sent me a contract describing exactly what flowers they would use, what vases, etc. I am a perfectionist, so I sent the contract back with a few changes, and they told me no problem. A few months later, I asked to come back for a preview of what my centerpieces would look like (the preview is an awesome thing they do to make SURE their brides are happy IN ADVANCE of wedding day), and I wasn't completely thrilled with what they had come up with... so I sent over a few more pictures and revised my original description of the flowers, because, hey, a girl is allowed to change her mind, right? Went in again to preview my flowers before the wedding, and they were PERFECT! I was so impressed with how they took my vision and made it better than the pictures I had showed them, not to mention how patient they were with me and all my little tweaks and revisions. I would absolutely recommend Flowers Make Scents to another Richmond-area bride! I just wish I could post a picture here to show off my lovely bouquets and centerpieces!

Flowers Make Scents is by far one of the best vendors for flowers in Richmond, VA! I personally worked with Shari, but the other girls in the shop were super nice and responsive. Shari went through the whole wedding flower process from the "look and feel" of the wedding to ordering and pickup/delivery. I felt very comfortable. The shop has limitless options available to fit any budget. I got married at the Jefferson Hotel and decided to go with traditional roses for my bouquets (HOT pink roses). Shari knew just the "type" of rose that would look best (I had NO idea there were so many different hot pink roses out there). I gave her a swatch of the color of the bridesmaids dresses (which were purple) and she did the rest. The bouquets turned out amazing! I also placed a last minute order the week of my wedding for cake flowers and flower girl petals... Flowers Make Scents made it happen in a time crunch! The cake was BEAUTIFUL with the flower additions (same hot pink) and we got the biggest bag of petals for the flower girl!!!! Very reasonable prices, excellent service (even in a time crunch) and FANTASTIC looking product. Highly recommended.

Shari did beautiful flowers for our wedding on May 4, 2013. She let us preview the flowers two days before the wedding, and was willing to make a minor adjustment to make sure we were completely satisfied with our flowers. Shari was reasonable and flexible with pricing, and I think she ultimately upgraded our flowers at the last minute by adding more peonies than we had discussed (which made everything even more beautiful!)

Thank you, Shari!! Katie and Jere
