I worked with Mario at Island Flowers. He was amazing. What I loved most about Mario was his creativity, flexibility and pricing. In the end, he produced WOW centerpieces. If you want a great florist that does beautiful work and has great prices, Mario at Island Flowers is your man. He did my aunt and uncle's 50th wedding anniversary and we couldn't be happier!!!

Tracy and Mario were just wonderful. They are a small local business which made us like them even more! I met with Tracy twice before my wedding and sent her pictures of what I had in mind. Island Flowers created the most beautiful bouquet and centerpieces for my wedding! So creative and they did such a great job, I highly recommend!

Mario was great to work with and he helped me pick out each and every flower from my bridal bouquet to the ring bearer's boutonniere. I had absolutely no idea of what kind of flowers I wanted, just the color, and Mario walked me through each and every combination. Be aware and patient that no all flowers bloom in a particular season. So they may not be readily available to physically view prior to your wedding but I can assure you that Mario will get the job done. It was honor working with him and he made our wedding that much more beautiful. I might add that he was incredibly accomodating as well!

Mario and Tracy at Island Flowers delivered in a huge way. Our wedding flowers were amazing. They made the Westin Harbour Island into a perfect heaven of Flowers. They decorated the aisles and staircases with beautiful pieces and our centerpieces were to die for. My wife had a dream and a vision and the team of Mario and Tracy made it appear. So easy to work with and you get tremendous value for what you pay for. Just fantastic.

Tracy did a fantastic job with my flowers! She assured me from day one my wedding would be gorgeous and she was absolutely right! Her arrangements were beautiful. Words can't describe the amazing job she did on my bouquet and my maid of honors bouquet. Mario did a great job on my arch flowers. I will definitely buy flowers from them!!! Thank you Tracy and Mario

I loved working with Mario and Tracy at Island Flowers. They did a beautiful job on my wedding bouquets.

Originally, I was going to make my own floral arrangements because I did not have a large budget for flowers. In fact, my max was $350. And that budget was for me (the bride) and three bridesmaids. When I told a few florists my budget, they seriously laughed right at me.

I went to Mario because my wedding took place in Ybor, but I honestly thought he would turn me down like every other florist. Instead, he was so professional and had some great ideas. He never once pressured me about my budget. He even rented me tons of plants to use for my outdoor ceremony space. All of this was working within my $350 budget. It was beautiful and affordable.

I would recommend Mario and Island Flowers in a heartbeat!

My best friend used Island Flowers for my reception flowers. We just had a couple basic bouquets for the cocktail tables, but they come out very pretty.
We kept the décor very simple for our reception, with just roses, but they also have lots of other options as well and they were close to my venue, which made it easy for my friend to pick up a few days before. She was able to store them and they kept nicely.

In full disclosure, Mario (owner of Island Flowers) is my new father-in-law. I'm blessed to have him as a family member and blessed to have him as a vendor. I know when it's your son's wedding, you want it to be so perfect but the level that Mario went above and beyond for me, well, it's just in his nature for everyone. I've witnessed it when I've been in the shop as he's consulted with a bride, or been making arrangements for an event.

Mario listened to everything I wanted, even going so far as to special order peonies from Holland for me. I was semi devastated when I heard that July wasn't the season for these favorite flowers of mine (oh, the things you get upset about when you are in the throes of wedding planning), but he really did something that meant so incredibly much to me. Additionally, he decorated the venue, including the gazebo, and worked so hard to make everything perfect.

Though it doesn't come with the job description of florist, just as tribute to the kind of guy you're dealing with, he did so much for his son and me including: dropping off booze, securing bartenders, breaking down decorations, bringing the linens to the location, dropping all left over booze and decorations to our house while we were on our honeymoon, lending his extra car out to family, and MORE. I really couldn't have pulled off this wedding without him. Mario was instrumental in making this night a success and I can't thank him enough.

With great prices, premium service, and a guy with a heart of gold, you really can't get any better than Island Flowers!!

Mario did a spectacular job on my flowers. He even pinned my groomsmen since nobody knew what they were doing! I valued his input and opinions on the bouquets when some things didn't look just right. Everything turned out beautifully and I was so happy we chose them for our flowers. The price just couldn't be beat and we got so much more than I expected. Thank you for everything Mario!

I was planning my wedding while living in Kansas, which was quite a challenge. During the planning process Island Flowers was not the easiest to work with. During a weekend trip to Tampa, I was able to meet with them and discuss flowers, prices and details. When I contacted them a week later, no one remembered or could find any of the information that we had talked about. They were hard to get in touch with and hard to get final prices from. I had to hassle them to return emails and telephone calls. In the end, the flowers looked great but they forgot the "free toss" bouquet they promised me and were a corsage short of what we ordered. Not sure the flowers were pretty enough to justify the difficulty during planning.
