We learned about Flowers by Design and Jamie Olson from a friend, and are so glad that we hired her for our wedding at the Museum of Fine Arts in St. Petersburg, FL. Jamie's creations were exceptionally beautiful, and her prices were very reasonable! Jamie responded quickly to our calls and emails, and always offered honest and helpful suggestions/feedback. Jamie picked fresh seasonal flowers for our centerpieces, bouquets, and boutonnieres, and now days after our wedding, we continue to receive calls from our guests about how beautiful they thought our flowers were. Jamie also created our chuppah (Jewish wedding canopy), and it was stunning, not to mention hundreds of dollars cheaper than quotes we received from other local florists.

I highly recommend Flowers By Design. Working with Jamie was so easy, and she catered to every little request and need I had. I showed Jamie pictures of what I envisioned and she created them to look exactly the way I wanted. She is extremely affordable, I shopped around a lot and her prices were the best. What you get for your money is unbelievable, the flowers at my wedding were so beautiful. I had compliments all night from my wedding guests on the flowers. Jamie provided beautiful bouquets for the bridal party, a draped and flowered arch for the beach ceremony, beautiful ceremony decor (flower hanging balls, petals lining beach sand), hydrangea centerpieces with custom ribbon, and gorgeous reception centerpieces. Jamie makes sure she has every detail lined up and ready before your big day, and makes everything so easy. HIGHLY RECOMMEND !!!!

Jamie is THE BEST!! she knew exactly what I wanted and went above and beyond to make it even better than what I thought it could be! Her set team was also the best and were quick and professional! I was a very picky bride and wanted my "over the top" wedding to be perfect and it was thanks to Jamie!
I had so many compliments on our arch, bistro lights, ceiling draping, and pipe and drape!
there is a reason why flowers by design is the best and its because they ARE THE BEST!!!

I cannot say enough good things about Jamie and the incredible work that she did to absolutely set the tone for our wedding with her beautiful flowers and decor. From the start Jamie was thoughtful, so genuinely caring and involved, and always ready to offer up helpful suggestions when I needed some inspiration, and even find ways to make my dreams happen within my budget! Our family and friends are still commenting on how beautiful everything was, and how incredible all of the sweet little details were. On my wedding day she did so much to make sure everything came out EXACTLY as I had wanted, even when some unforeseen things had occurred at my venue. We could not have made a better choice in choosing Jamie to be our florist. Thank you Jamie for everything!!

Flowers-By-Design did an amazing job on the floral arrangement, bouquets, etc. for our wedding. I have a lot of allergies and they were very attentive to my needs to that I could enjoy my special day without sneezing and being plugged up. I loved the arrangements they were able to come up with for us (as I had no idea exactly what I wanted) they were absolutely stunning. I highly recommend Flowers-by-Design to anyone who's planning a wedding/ special event.

I enjoyed working with this company so very much. The flexibility working within our budget and then unexpected events (computer getting struck by lightning and loss of all information, death of loved one and needing to change flower count) showed that not just flexibility, but also understanding and compassion was at the heart of their work. When things could have been stressful, cooler heads and warm hearts prevailed.

Jamie was wonderful to work with, and the flower arrangements for the tables at the rehearsal dinner were absolutely beautiful. Everyone kept commenting about how beautiful they were. I was working long distance from New Orleans, and Jamie was kind enough to make a sample arrangement, take a picture of it and send it to my iphone for review. It was beautiful, and I gave my OK immediately. The arrangements for the dinner were even prettier than the sample picture she sent me. She was also very helpful with suggestions to help me stay within my budget. You can't go wrong by using Flowers By Design if you want to make a lasting impression for any event!

Jamie Olson and the Flowers-By-Design Team made our tropical paradise come to life! I am so appreciative of all the time, work and creativity Jamie dedicated to our wedding and putting it all together. Jamie was able to take the ideas and images I provided her and put together a beautiful theme of tropical and romantic flowers that flowed and worked together so well - from our ceremony flowers, to the wedding party flowers, to the reception flowers - it all looked so beautiful. Our guests loved the flowers so much, that all off our centerpieces went home with the guests the night of the wedding!
Jamie was great in working with our budget, putting together the flower plan through email and phone calls as we lived out of town, working with our limited time available to meet when we were in St. Pete and confirming all the details right up to the wedding. She also worked with us in letting us provide our vases and decorations and finding a way to make that work into the entire design.
I highly recommend meeting with her in person to create sample pieces - we were able to see everything in person months before the wedding and be totally confident everything was going to be perfect the day of the wedding!
We feel very lucky and so thankful for working with Flowers by Design!

Jamie Olsen is the most patient florist ever! There were countless e-mails we send back and forth especially when I kept changing my mind on what I wanted over and over again. She never once hesitated to help. This was the most reasonably priced florist I found. It was just a bonus working with a great person like Jamie. The flowers were BEAUTIFUL! And they lasted for quite some time. Thank you for everything!

We had an appointment over skype and helped me to find exactly what I wanted. She is very creative and had a lot of great ideas when it came to the types of flowers I wanted and how to arrange them. Communication was great throughout the planning process and the final products were absolutely stunning! Thank you Jamie!!

Jamie did an outstanding job of listening to what my vision was for the wedding and made great recommendations. When we met she had sample pictures of what we were talking about to help give me a better idea of how things would look. The flowers were GORGEOUS!! Jamie also gave me recommendations of how to get things cheaper and she even set up things for me that I purchased on my own (ie--tiki torches and chinese lanterns). She made everything look exceptional

Flowers by Design did a phenomenal job for our wedding. Jamie Olsen was very professional, easy to communicate with, and had some amazing ideas that was incorporated to make our Big Day perfect. She and her team worked very hard to make sure the flowers coordinated with the theme of the wedding and the ivory color of the wedding dress. We highly recommend their services because it is absolute perfection and we were blown away with their outstanding finished product.

The day of the wedding Jamie and her team helped set-up and the flowers were absolutely flawless. They were beautiful and fresh and I couldn't have asked for more. The guests all raved about the Centerpieces - Everyone's Favorite was the three tiered vases with blue led light submersed with blue born orchid's in them and floating candles on top. WOW it was absolutely breathtaking.

Jamie thank you for help making our Wedding Day perfect!

Sincerely,

The Newlyweds

Sean and I had a very small budget for our wedding but she was willing to work with us without making me feel silly about "not spending enough." She gave me great ideas while listening to mine to help create a fabulous design for the ceremony and reception. Also, this company's prices were the most reasonable while giving very beautiful flowers. I honestly cannot say enough great things about Jamie and her company. Thanks, again for everything!

Jamie with Flowers-by-Design was amazing! She worked with me to find the best fit for flowers for a girl who isn't a huge fan of flowers. The bouquets were beautiful, and they matched perfectly with the attire. She created a beautiful piece for the alter at our church, and it was there for over a week for all parishioners to enjoy after our ceremony. She helped me understand what would be good for our style of wedding, and was very professional and responsive to any question or request. Her value for her work was amazing too! I would recommend Flowers-by-Design for your wedding!

Planning a destination wedding is a very difficult thing to do. And with all of the horror stories you hear about wedding disasters, my husband and I were very cautious in choosing our vendors. Over a year before the wedding, I booked my wedding floral arrangements with Jamie at Flowers-By-Design. She is sweet, professional, and is truly knowledgeable. I sent her many emails with questions, requests, thoughts, changes, and through the year long process was always in constant communication and would share her professional expertise on what flowers would and would not work for our beach wedding. I couldn’t really decide what I wanted for my bridal bouquet and constantly questioned what would work best, what I’d like. In the end, Jamie was honest about my thoughts and ideas, and created a PERFECT bouquet. A situation arose on the day of the wedding and without skipping a beat, Jamie worked out the kinks and made a beautiful centerpiece that our guests were certainly excited to win (we had a surprise giveaway under randomly chosen seats at each table).

Wonderful experience, Our flowers were absolutely beautiful, exactly what I imagined, even though I am terrible with design so very haphazardly explained what colors and shapes of flowers I liked while she walked me through her dictionary created from her expertise, of flowers and possibilities. In the end it was absolutely amazing, they took care of everything, even at the last minute honoring a request from my mother and I to drape beautiful fabric hanging over bare metal posts and even added beautiful wooden branches to finish it off. Every detail was perfect. The trellis, the table displays, the orchids for my hair, etc.
the detail was of the highest quality. I feel like the only thing that went perfectly at my wedding were the decorations from flowers-by-design. Friendly, on-time, and spot on all the way.

I cannot express how LUCKY I am to have hired Flowers-By-Design. Jamie sat down with my a year before my wedding, and she instantly saw my vision. On March 25th 2012, my vision came to life! Her staff set everything up, and worked directly with me to make sure we had everything we needed. I was short one flower, and they had brought extras to ensure we were always covered. I have recommended Flowers-By-Design to everyone who is getting married or having a large event. The arch they provided for my ceramony took my breath away. I could not have asked for a more perfect choice. My bridal bouquet was the talk of the wedding, and I kept it to dry them and keep it as a keepsake. That is how beautiful it was! I highly recommend Jamie and her team to ANYONE who wants a beautiful wedding! THANK YOU FOR MAKING MY DREAM WEDDING COME TRUE! -- Josie & Dennis

Jamie did an excellent job on my flowers and fabric draping.
My ceremony was held in a pretty simple room and really needed that wedding feel added to it. I was a bit nervous about what I would find that day and if it would be elaborate enough for me. I tried to explain what I wanted as best I could and she assured me she understood the look I wanted. That day I was so pleasantly surprised in so many ways! The draping was exactly what I had pictured (even better than what I pictured) and the floral arrangements and columns created a wonderful aisle. It was beautiful!

Now the centerpieces... wow... she did some for my rehearsal dinner (it was a surprise to me) and I was in love with them.. then I walked into the reception room the day of the wedding and I was even more floored by what she had done. I was not expecting such large centerpieces .. I couldn't keep my eyes off of them! She mixed it up between 2 different arrangements and I couldn't have been happier. Not to mention the bouquets were fresh, beautiful and just right for my look. She is definitely a wonderful florist and a good value for the money.

Jamie was a pure pleasure to work with. She was able to meet with me immediately once I contacted her, and from just that one meeting she more than exceeded my expectations of the bouquet I showed her. Her work is FLAWLESS and her pricing is more than reasonable. I was actually shocked and honestly a little skeptical about how inexpensive her prices were compared to other florist quotes I received. But don't be alarmed by that at all b/c her work is top notch! Definitely recommend her to all Tampa Bay and surrounding areas brides :)

I met with SO many florists/decorators before I signed with Jamie. I liked her easy going demeanor and even though my wedding had a lot of moving parts she didn't seemed overwhelmed at all. She stayed within my budget and gave me everything that I wanted.

Our initial meeting was 2 hours! She didn't rush me or get frustrated during the planning process. I thought that with the budget I had I would have to give something up, but Jamie really worked with my budget and didn't try to nickel-and-dime me on everything. She gave me some great options when the flowers I wanted weren't in my budget and the overall look wasn't sacrificed at all. She even told me which items I could pick up cheaper than what she would charge me to save me $$$. I knew I was asking for more than just the regular centerpieces and bouquet and she had a lot to do in between the ceremony and reception. Jamie handled my flowers and draping. I'm was very picky about the draping and gave her my specifics and she got it spot on. I wanted Royal Blue roses, which don't naturally exist, so she had dye the roses. I was worried about getting the right shade of blue and Jamie NAILED it. They were absolutely beautiful! The decor was exactly what I wanted and I wouldn't have changed a thing. She really understood the look and I wanted and made it breathtaking!

Jamie was always pleasant and I could tell she was truly excited about decorating my wedding. She was very reasonably priced, and I'm so glad she did my wedding!

I contacted Flowers By Design by recommendation from my venue. I also seeked 2 other proposals by some other florist in the area. I initially settled with Flowers By Design because of their extremely reasonable cost. I communicated countlessly with Jamie about my ideas. She always seemed to be on the same page and was very open to any changes that I had. I never met her in person or saw exactly what she was doing with my pieces. She did offer for me to stop by but I ended up being to busy with my wedding schedule. I was of course alittle nervous with this, but I did not stress about it. On the day of my wedding when the flowers arrived, I was speechless. They were absolutely goregous and exactly what I have envisioned. Jamie is wonderful about puttting your dreams into reality. After seeing my wedding pictures, it only confirmed what a good choice I had made. I highly recommended Flowers by Design for all of your floral needs.

Well all I have to say is WOW!! Jamie did an amazing job with my flowers. I admit I was a little nervous because I had never actually met her but she made me feel at ease after speaking with her on the phone a number of times. I was able to get my vision across to her over the phone, which I think is very difficult considering I have no idea about flowers or bouquets. I explained what I was looking for in my own words and she was able to translate it and deliver. My bouquet was exactly what I was looking for and when it arrived it made me even more excited about getting married. Jamie was very responsive and anytime I called and had questions she was very responsive. Jamie did an amazing job in every way and I wouldn't recommend her enough!

I met with Jaymie 2 months before my wedding. I have been looking around for a long time and with flowers by design i signed contract right away because i was very comfortable with the price. ( I did my homework as well and brought my color swatch and picture of how i want my wedding cremony and reception to look like) I did provided with some gems and 5 vases but it saved me lots of money and Jaymie and her team were able to execute the order. My bouquet is amazing and the centerpieces were very beautiful. The altar and aisle flowers are so pretty. Jaymie actually search for the aisle decor because i want something different than just a shepard hook. Overall it was a great experience and she keep me informed . Thanks Jamie

Working with Jamie Olson of Flowers By Design was GREAT! When we first met with her to discuss the vision for our wedding we knew she was the vendor for us. She’s such a warm and caring woman who is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the flower industry. She showed us a variety of flowers and photos of what we could do. Her prices were very reasonable compared to other florists we’d talked to. We were able to make changes to our work order until about 2 weeks before the wedding and Jamie would always answer my questions or make suggestions. My mom and I wanted to see a sample of our reception centerpieces and Jamie met us at our venue one day with the sample so we could see them on the tables and discuss some other items on our work order. On the day of the wedding, Jamie arrived at the venue early in the day to setup everything. She even put all our votives on the tables for us and decorated a fountain in the lobby of the venue. She is so creative and I LOVED everything she did! Jamie is a wonderful florist/designer and we highly recommend her!

Perfect!
I had my ceremony in the courtyard of the Don Cesar beach resort, and the reception in the grand ballroom. Between the fact that it was a destination wedding, (so everybody was traveling home the next day and all the flowers would be trashed) and the already beautiful location, I did not want to have large, over-the-top, or expensive arrangements. Jamie was really helpful in bringing my vision to life while staying within budget. I was no flower expert, so she guided me to the flowers that would give me the most impact without breaking the bank.
She only does events, and does not have a retail store front, which enables her to keep her costs down. She was the least expensive of the five local florists I spoke to, but the service and presentation were anything but cheap.
Jamie is very professional, and responsive. Being an out-of-state bride, I signed a contract based on a phone call, and reading other reviews. When I was in town for my tasting, she offered to come to my hotel to meet with me to discuss details. I knew I made the right choice! I communicated with her best over e-mail. She is very clear about what you are ordering and how much each item costs, so there are no surprises. On the day of the event she had one of her assistants, Sarah, do the delivery and set-up. She made sure I had everything I needed, and everything was just as I imagined.
I would recommend Flowers-by-Design to anybody who want's five star service without the five star price tag. Thanks Jamie and team!

Jamie and her team did a fantastic job on our flowers, and I would recommend her to anyone! She took the time to listen to our ideas, and she really understood our concept. She had lots of examples to show us, and had great ideas that really worked well. The flowers all came out exactly as planned and looked amazing! I was in love with my bouquet (hot pink peonies, ranunculus, and dahlias)! The girls' bouquets, corsages, bouts, and centerpieces were all gorgeous too, and they set up on time with no problems. Thank you so much Jamie for all you did to make our wedding beautiful!

All 10 of my bridesmaids kept their flowers to dry out because the bouquets were so gorgeous and several guests fought over who would take home the centerpieces!! The flowers and decor were just beautiful and I can't thank you enough!

I didn't have to worry about a single thing, I knew Jaime would make sure it looked beautiful, and it did!

I just loved working with Jamie on my wedding flowers and decor. I had a limited budget but she helped me and worked with me and created the best bridal bouquet, and the bridesmaid's bouquets. The center pieces were amazing. I was thrilled at what my money could produce with Jamie's help and knowledge. She was very prompt with her communications via phone and email and also with the delivery of all the pieces for my wedding. If I ever get married again, I will definitely get in touch with Jamie (just kidding); but I will tell all my friends about her.

We couldn't have been any happier with the wedding flowers at our daughter's wedding and reception. The girls' bouquets were breathtaking! The arrangements in the church were perfect! And when I first walked into the ballroom where the wedding reception was being held I nearly cried -- the table centerpieces were unbelievably gorgeous! Jamie had listened to all our ideas and created everything perfectly. Yeah, we were a little nervous because we didn't see a preview of what we were getting ahead of time but we had no reason to worry. Jamie knew exactly what we wanted and she did it! So, if you're looking for a GREAT floral designer for your wedding with the best prices, look no further. You will be so happy you decided to go with Jamie at Flowers-By-Design!

I had no idea what I wanted the first time we met but she was very patient and helped me come up with some great ideas. I was a little nervous about what the final product would look like but on the day of the wedding because I had only seen sample pictures and discussed the color scheme we wanted to use. However, when the bouquets were delivered they were GORGEOUS! Jamie coordinated the colors so well and the reception was even more beautiful than I could have even imagined. People raved all night about how beautiful the centerpieces were. She truly went above and beyond what I even expected.

We were incredibly pleased with Flowers-By-Design. First and foremost, the flowers for the wedding were phenomenal. Jamie did a wonderful job creating the specialized pieces we requested and had extremely good taste on the pieces that we gave her freedom to create. She was always responsive, helpful, and professional. She was extremely knowledgable about which flowers would work in different conditions (outside on the beach, or in the air conditioned ballroom) and had great suggestions. And the price was very reasonable, by far the best we saw, and for an incredible quality. She was very knowledgable and had great money-saving tips ... recommending flowers that would achieve a similar beautiful look for much less. We couldn't be more pleased with our experience working with Jamie and would recommend her to anyone.

Jamie is the fairy godmother of florists. After months of searching for a florist, a friend of mine referred me to Jamie and she was absolutely amazing. After our initial meeting I knew I was going to hire her. She's very professional, friendly and passionate about what she does.

She was very thorough in explaining what what would work best for what I was invisioning for my Spring wedding. And another great thing about her is her ability to maximize your budget and providing you with absolutely stunning arrangements. I received so many compliments about the centerpieces and our bouquets. I couldn't have picked a better person for my special day!

Living in Orlando, Jamie was kind enough to meet my husband & I "half way" in Lakeland to discuss the flower arrangements and throughout the planning stage, she was very responsive via email & phone and VERY flexible when it came to the changes I made to the original contract. She worked within our budget and was very professional throughout.

On the day of the Wedding, Jamie and her staff arrived promptly when she said she would and the flowers looked lovely ---- not to mentioned, photographed beautifully as well. I would definitely recommend Flowers-By-Design to any Bride who plans to get married in the Tampa/St. Pete/Clearwater area!

Flowers by Design of Tampa Bay was a great florist for our autumn wedding. Jamie was helpful in choosing beautiful roses in our color scheme, creating gorgeous bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, and centerpieces. Everything turned out beautifully.

My story is a bit different as my wife and I were married in 1970, probably before Jamie was even born. As we were in Florida for our first Christmas we wanted original Christmas decorations. A friend recommended Jamie. I am no artiste, so I gave Jamie carte' blanche to come up with something, and she delivered! We had fresh-cut greens, ribbons and candles in very artistic displays. The greens stayed fresh and aromatic from just before Christmas until after New Years. We had myriad guests and visitors over the Holidays and many unbidden compliments. the decorations were a very nice part of our Holidays.
In reading the other reviews written herein, a theme runs throughout. Save one % who were extremely satisfied with the work, service and value. I have already recommended Jamie to family and friends in the area.

We worked with Jamie at Flowers by Design to do the flowers for our wedding ceremony and reception. She was great about working with all the changes throughout the planning process and working within our budget. I wanted a dramatic look for a less dramatic price, and the flowers ended up looking absolutely beautiful. Our reception centerpieces were breathtaking and absolutely made the space gorgeous. I would definitely recommend Flowers by Design. The flowers were beautiful, their service was great, they delivered everything and set everything up, and our flowers stayed pretty for almost a week! They are very flexible and friendly.

I cannot say enough positive words about Jamie Olson and her Flowers By Design team! Our venue recommended Flowers By Design, and I am so glad we used them. As someone who knows next to nothing about flowers, finding a vendor like Jamie was wonderful. Bring her any picture of what you like, and she can name every flower included, when it is in season, and approximately how much it will cost. I provided pictures of what I liked, and Jamie gave me exactly what I wanted! Not only did Jamie create my bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres, but she also created a beautiful two-post draped canopy for the ceremony, set up bistro lights and a chandelier at our reception, and let us use our ceremony aisle markers as part of our reception centerpieces to save money. She is flexible, professional, talented, and very fairly priced! I would highly, highly, highly recommend Flowers By Design.

This was a 2nd marriage and I had no real idea of what flowers I should have for the wedding. Jamie helped walk me through the process and helped me pick out the flowers for the bouquets. They turned out better than I could have imagined! They were perfect and she included the throw away bouquet and petals to be strewn along the way. They really helped to make my day very special!

I sent her pictures of centerpieces and bouquets for inspiration and she came back with a perfect product. The flowers and colors she used matched our peacock theme perfectly and photographed even better.

I got married on 3-23-12 and worked with Jamie to get my flowers for my ceremony. The flowers all turned out great. They were very professional, I know traffic was bad on the way there and they called to say they were running a few minutes late and ended up showing up pretty much on time.

I got married at the rusty pelican which only gives florist a very short amount of time for set up and take down and they made it work great. The Flowers were a great value and she worked with me to get exactly what I wanted and did not require a minimum spent. I will be recommending her to my family and friends

I think going with Jamie at Flowers-by-Design is a no-brainer. She's high-energy and tireless because of it, she knows her flowers, and she's half the cost of the other florists for the exact flowers you want. They'll make you compromise and tell you it'll still be great, but don't do it. Do your homework, even if it takes an hour extra a week. It's sooooo worth it. Look through the bridal mags and find something, anything, you like. Show her a thumbnail-sized picture and point lamely and say "I want something like that" -- she'll identify the flower, tell you if it's in season during your wedding month, tell you cost and suggest an equally beautiful and less costly mirror image. She doesn't seem organized, but she is, and she's a horticulturalist who grows her own flowers and has lots of contacts to get what you want (weird, obscure, out-of-season, hard-to-find, super-cheap or expensive) to make it happen! She has been doing this forever and got green hydrangea for a low price the other florists seemed suspicious of. She threaded dendrobium orchids like they were buttons -- seamlessly. I'd expect that to cost me a fortune. It cost me NOTHING! And I'm cheap!!

My wedding was beautiful! And it was my own -- totally unique. What she did with extra flowers was worth the cost alone -- she gave character to our room, cake table, place card table and gift table that I wasn't expecting. I wanted to hang out there all night! In fact, I totally underestimated what the flowers meant to the day, but I realized that without her handiwork, I'd be a white girl in a white dress under a white canopy on white sand. When I walked down the aisle, hands shaking, body in a trance, it was the pop of color from the gorgeous flowers that made me euphoric and focused me. They were happy and bright, and therefore so was I.

And let's talk about that "canopy."In Judaism, it's called a chuppah. It's four-post, and it's very important. That day, there were 30 mph winds and they spent hours trying to put it up, only to have it blow down over and over. I expected it to look lopsided and careless and weighted down and ugly when they were finished -- Jamie has a laid back vibe that made me nervous and, well, I'm Type A. Well I'm an idiot. She made something beautiful, strong, light and airy that looked better than what I had seen in other people's pictures. And it was half the price of theirs. In fact, every picture we took I get compliments on -- I know it's the flowers. We hardly spent a thing, and yet every picture I look at, my eye is drawn to the flowers. Mine, my husband's, my groomsmen, etc. Nothing flashy, nothing crazy, nothing expensive, nothing wasteful -- just everything I wanted.

She completed my vision, better than I envisioned it. That's what they call "picture perfect," people.

Jamie from Flowers-By-Design is extremely responsive. She worked with my budget(which was small). I didn't have many flowers brought in because my wedding was in a garden. I wanted to really take advantage of what was around us!

I had boutineers, corsages, my bouquet, maid of honor bouquet, cake topper and petals for the tables. I loved my bouquet but everything else was average at best. I didn't walk away talking about any of the flowers.

I think for me and what I wanted and my price point she was good. I recommend her to anyone who may be in the same boat I was in. Small budget and wanted simple flowers.

We ended up choosing Flowers by Design as our florists simply because their price was the best. Jamie (the owner) is very flexible and worked with me to execute my vision, she was also very patient with me and accommodated all of the last minute changes I had. One thing I would is that she's hard to get a hold of. I realize she is very busy, and communicated with her via email for any questions or changes so that she could get back to me at her convenience. However, sometimes, I'd have to wait days sometimes a week, for a reply. Another thing I would have liked would be a meeting a few days prior to the big day with her to show us what we can expect our flowers to look like. That would be a nice service to provide. But in the end, everything turned out great. We needed our flowers delivered to 3 different places at certain times, and they were able to accommodate that. Our flowers turned out amazing, and Jamie turned my vision into reality perfectly. I was very happy with the results.

My bouquet was beautiful but a lot of the flowered broke. My husbands boutineer broke prior to the ceremony and my nephews broke off of the stem as well. The ceremony was supposed to start at 6:30pm but due to traffic we did not start until 6:50 and they were not decorating and hanging the flower balls until 6:25; therefore, they were decorating as guests were being sat.

Flowers-By-Design responded with the following comments:

We always appreciate the reviews we receive from our bridal clients. This helps us to recognize where we can improve and also allow us to give ourselves a pat on the back when we rock. This review unfortunately is not all together accurate. I was never notified by my bride miss Kasey Pfoff over any issues. Our set designer’s photo document every event our company executes. Flowers were delivered fully in tack and approved by the bride and the bride’s mother upon arrival. Also back up boutonnieres are always made. She had 2 or 3 extra. I received a picture text at 6:00 with a completed wedding set up, again with the mother of the bride’s approval. The ceremony was set for 6:30 and we were ready to go, ceremony décor and reception flowers. This is a message to all brides, flowers are fragile and the boutonnieres as well as bridal flowers do need to be handled with care. Be careful in the handling of your bouquets and boutonnieres these are fresh flowers, designs are handmade and very delicate. We did not deliver broken flowers. There flowers were broken because of the nature in which they were handled after they were delivered. Our set designers were on location until after the ceremony was over they were not notified of any broken flowers. There was a significant delay in the ceremony so we don’t if boutonnieres were put on too early if there was much rustling around because of the delay. Our set designers are always available if the bride needs help. Set designers were there the whole time and would have been able to assist in any situation.

On the good side they always answered when we called and she was polite when we talked on the phone and met in person, but when we received the flowers the bridal bouquet was created wrong and the petals for the flower girls were fake and they needed to be real since the wedding was on the beach and they require real petals otherwise it is littering. We made sure that our order was correct the day before the wedding. So when we called them to request real petals to be brought and the bridal bouquet to be corrected the woman who answered just said "budget bride" and hung up. VERY RUDE! I'm guessing that since they got their money they were happy (not us) and that they didn't need to help us any further and fix their mistake. I would not suggest using them unless you plan to spend more than a thousand dollars then you might be treated respectfully from beginning to end.

Flowers-By-Design responded with the following comments:

Flowers By Design operates to the utmost to satify every client and their needs promply and efficently. Work orders are signed off on by the bride and description of each and every piece is provided to our clients including the flower counts as well as varieties chosen by our clients. Inspriational photos are embedded into the quote so our clients can visualize the similarities. This client wanted specific flowers that were not in the photo. Each flower variety has their own characteristic trait and may affect the over all look and feel of any given piece. So when she received her bouquet is was similar to the photo but not exact as she chose a flower choice that was inconsistant to the characteristic traits of the flower choice in the photo and flowers by design do not offer silk flowers of any kind so my guess is that the petals we provided were not used and the silk petals came from another source. We were not notified of this so we could not have addressed it. We will always strive to do our best in design and customer service and we are dissapointed that our client was not happy with what she chose. However we did design this piece to the specifications on the quote as always.

We had SO many issues with Jamie’s professionalism and the quality of her products.
Jamie called me the day before my wedding upset that the Hyatt would not let her in the ballroom before 11am. She informed me that she wanted to be done and on her way to the church by noon. My wedding reception wasn’t until 6:30PM. I didn’t see where being let in at 11am was really putting her in a time crunch. I was confused by this…. Jamie then told me that she wanted to be done in a half day because she’s been working 7 days a week, so she was sending her staff to complete my ballroom.
When I saw my ballroom, it was awful. The arrangements were not set straight on the tall centerpieces. All the arrangements just looked sloppy. Jamie told me this was due to the vases I supplied being too big. I delivered the vases to Jamie on Jan 23rd. My wedding was Feb 11th. I should have been notified of this and I would have just told her to use her vases or we could sourced different vases for her or more flowers. She told me she wasn’t comfortable asking for more money from us. Well, she was certainly comfortable calling me the day before my wedding to complain about the Hyatt. This problem could have been solved if Jamie would have communicated with me. Even if I would have been notified of this 2 or 3 days before my wedding, my mom and I could have bought new smaller vases.
There were also rose petals all over my ballroom. We rented linens and specifically asked that rose petals not be in the ball room, because we wanted the linens to be a highlight and not covered by petals. When I spoke with Jamie about this after my wedding, she wrote me an email telling me I should have had a wedding planner then this could have been corrected. I don’t think it’s the responsibility of a wedding planner to place the rose petals.
Jamie did the flower arrangements for my wedding shower. The roses looked wilted. I provided pictures of the wilted flowers and I addressed this with Jamie after my bridal shower as I was stressed about the quality since we had booked her for the wedding as well. She told me since my shower was in August it was sort of an off month for flowers and that my bridesmaids, who chose the shower roses, had picked a very delicate flower. She assured me we could use a more durable flower for my wedding day.
It’s sad because my wedding bouquets and centerpieces were just like my shower centerpieces – WILTED ROSES. I even gave Jamie the benefit of the doubt by waiting to see more pictures of my centerpieces and bouquets, well, sure enough there are wilted flowers in all the pictures, including my own bouquet.
My bridesmaid’s bouquets were falling apart at the church. Jamie told me that my bridesmaids were not careful enough with the fresh flowers.
Lastly, and the most disappointment, post wedding Jamie refused to meet with me and my mom to go over these issues and give us some explanations. Instead she preferred to go back and forth in email. I find this type of communication frustrating and unprofessional.

We had SO many issues with Jamie’s professionalism and the quality of her products.
Jamie called me the day before my wedding upset that the Hyatt would not let her in the ballroom before 11am. She informed me that she wanted to be done and on her way to the church by noon. My wedding reception wasn’t until 6:30PM. I didn’t see where being let in at 11am was really putting her in a time crunch. I was confused by this…. Jamie then told me that she wanted to be done in a half day because she’s been working 7 days a week, so she was sending her staff to complete my ballroom.
When I saw my ballroom, it was awful. The arrangements were not set straight on the tall centerpieces. All the arrangements just looked sloppy. Jamie told me this was due to the vases I supplied being too big. I delivered the vases to Jamie on Jan 23rd. My wedding was Feb 11th. I should have been notified of this and I would have just told her to use her vases or we could sourced different vases for her or more flowers. She told me she wasn’t comfortable asking for more money from us. Well, she was certainly comfortable calling me the day before my wedding to complain about the Hyatt. This problem could have been solved if Jamie would have communicated with me. Even if I would have been notified of this 2 or 3 days before my wedding, my mom and I could have bought new smaller vases.
There were also rose petals all over my ballroom. We rented linens and specifically asked that rose petals not be in the ball room, because we wanted the linens to be a highlight and not covered by petals. When I spoke with Jamie about this after my wedding, she wrote me an email telling me I should have had a wedding planner then this could have been corrected.

This review unfortunately is about a bride who failed to do what was recommended. She declined ordering sample pieces yet asked us to stay within her budget which we did. She also declined having a day of coordinator who would have been able to walk her through her special day. Her bouquets had been delivered looking fresh and great. Everything was executed according to the specifications to the work order. The room was stunning and there were so many compliments not only from the venues staff but the bakery and photographer as well. Nothing was wilted. I was stunned to hear of such a review. The event was set up one hour before her 2:30 ceremony to do a final walk through which was also declined. She did not consult with us regarding the containers so they were a little larger than expected when she gave them to me 5 days before production. She was late on her final revisions and flowers were already ordered. Going above and beyond, I spent an extra $450 to create a larger piece for 8 of the 24 centerpieces that were ordered. The other 8 were of substantial price point with no complaints then the last 8 of the pieces were still $75 each, however not large enough for her vision. So because her vision exceeded her budget she is now disappointed and angry with us giving us a horrible and untrue review. After which we found out later that she had also complained about other vendors that serviced the event.
This review is compliled of inaccuracies, assumptions and unfortunately, many of which is written here are based on untrue facts. We are currently looking into the leagality of such a slanderous review. Wedding wire will not return our calls or respond to our emails.
