When owner/designer Michele Bernard opened the doors to her first flower shop back in 1990, she had one vision in mind. And that was to help brides create the perfect wedding to fit their personal style and budget.

Word of mouth from happy brides not only increased her wedding business but also turned her small shop into a two floor full service gift and flower shop.

Now, after 10 years of success Michele sold that original location to concentrate on what she does best...WEDDINGS!

Now with out the busy details of a flower shop, Michele and her staff can now concentrate all their creative energies to helping her brides exclusively. Read less

All of the flowers that Michele provided for my daughter's wedding on May 31, 2014 were just gorgeous. Michele was extremely helpful in providing suggestions and meeting with my daughter on several occasions to make the decisions for the table arrangements, bouquets, boutineers, wristlets, and special arrangements for the sweetheart table and other tables.
She also provided the table linens and chair covers that were perfectly coordinated with the floral colors. The bridal bouquet itself was a masterpiece. She is a professional in all aspects, and certainly knows her artistic craft well. Additionally, she was a pleasure to work with. She listened, gave suggestions, and then put together a beautiful display of nature's beauty.

I was initially going to do my own thing for flowers. I had an idea of doing a fake flower arrangement, and then for centerpieces, order baby's breath online. A little more than a month before my wedding I was just frazzled, and my mom convinced me to just bite the bullet and purchase flowers. I called Michele, because she works closely with the Publick House, where my wedding was being held. I explained to Michele that I was on a smaller budget, and we talked about what I was looking for and in need of. She also asked about centerpieces, and I told her that I was still planning on doing that myself because of the online pricing. She matched that for me, and I was thrilled, because I no longer had to worry about that aspect of my wedding. I emailed her pictures of what I was looking for. We never sat down together, as I have two small boys and work full time- it's just a busy time for us. I appreciated that we could communicate through email and the phone, and I was able to bounce ideas off of her. A night or two before my wedding, she sent me a text with a picture of these gorgeous pool colored (my wedding color) vases and asked if she could use them as my centerpieces. We were going to originally have plain vases with a pool colored ribbon around them. They were super cute, so I gave her the go ahead. The day of my wedding, the flowers arrived, and they were just stunning. There is no way I could have ever made anything close to the quality and beauty that Michele was able to bring to my wedding. She also included extra boutonnieres and corsages, just in case the originals were damaged for any reason. She also added rose petals to my head table. Little touches that were not talked about or expected just made my reception room that much more beautiful. I don't think I can stress enough how happy I was with her work. She is truly an artist.

Michele Bernard provided the flowers and linens/chair covers for our wedding and both were beautiful and exactly what we had pictured. She was super accommodating with planning appointments and assisted coordinating for us with our venue. She really went above and beyond as a florist and assisted us with advise on other aspects of the wedding as well. Our relative is actually a local florist who offered to do the wedding but Michele was just so nice and professional and had such competitive prices we went with her and it was a great decision. I wouldn't go with anyone else especially for a wedding at the Publick House.

Michele is amazing at what she does! And she is so much more than a florist- she is a designer, a wedding planner, a passionate and caring person to help you create the perfect look for your wedding. Michele made our reception special in so many ways. She helped me create a look for our fall wedding with specialty linens, flowers, apples, candles, a candy bar buffet, uplighting...I can't say enough wonderful things. She is very accomodating with her busy schedule and makes you feel like a special bride. She puts 100% into every event she palns and it shows. She was helpful in reccommending other vendors and sharing her expertise in all areas. We had so many compliments on the decor of our reception and on the flowere used at the ceremony. Michele is a pleasure to work with.

Where do I start? Let me put it this way: I gave Michele ideal images for my wedding reception flowers and décor from my Pinterest board with a (low) set budget and told her to “do what you can” with my expectations being that she wouldn’t be able to do much. The result? I walked into our reception, and not only had she achieved what I thought was only reachable with massive amounts of cash, but what was before me was even more beautiful than I had ever seen on any Pinterest board or in any bridal magazine. I’m not joking. It was magical with pillar candles and the assortment of deep purples and pink flowers throughout both floors of our reception. Our tables looked ridiculous with rose petals scattered all around and supported by backlit candle lighting and candelabras. My bouquet was richly embellished with some sparkling décor in a way that made it tastefully stand out against your traditional bridal bouquets. I cannot emphasize enough how far Michele surpassed my expectations by. Execution and skill aside, she is extremely organized, personable and reachable. She is willing to work with whatever budget you give her, and my experience with her was that she was always giving me extra freebies because she’s just that passionate and committed to making sure you achieve the look you are going for. She’s been in the industry for years and is extremely knowledgeable about everything floral and décor related. Since I got married (early April 2013), I have told everyone who has asked about my wedding about her. There is absolutely nobody that I would not recommend her to. Cheesy as it sounds, I feel like she helped make my wedding dream come true by transforming by venue into one of the most romantic wedding settings I have ever been to. People kept coming up to me at the wedding talking about how beautifully decorated it was. You would be mad not to use her for your wedding!!

Michele was a pleasure to work with. She was creative, sensitive to my needs, inventive and an overall professional. She is calm and resourceful. She asked questions and came up with ideas that I hadn't thought of. She was one step ahead of everyone and coordinated multiple vendors smoothly and quietly. I recommend her with enthusiasm!

Love, love, LOVE Michele and her work. I was very concerned about the flowers. For whatever reason, this was the most important aspect of the wedding for me and she NAILED it. I wanted big and tall arrangements with gorgeous sticks sticking out of the top with orchids everywhere in a very difficult shade of blue-ish/purple I chose...done and done! I wanted a chuppah overflowing with orchids, with the poles draped with white and the aisle with white rose petals...done! I wanted a gorgeous arrangement for our sweetheart table, basically porchids overflowing, cascading down the table...DONE. The roses in the bouquets were the most amazing smelling roses I have EVER smelled.

Michele also made little bouquets for my mom and mother-in-law and made arrangements for my parents' room and parents-in-law's room and they were HUGE and beautiful, exactly how I pictured!!! I would recommend Michele over everyone else for your needs...she is a rockstar! She also send a ridiculous arrangement to our bridal suite and I was STUNNED. You can't order these flowers from 1800Flowers, and isn't that the point? If you want ridiculous service with a top-quality outcome, Michele is your gal! thanks again, Love B & M

Michele did an outstanding job. She is a professional like no other. She wasn’t just my florist she did so much more. She was available to me via phone, met with me several times. Really understood my vision and, most importantly, delivered it!!! She made it seem so easy and did it all with a smile.
The flowers, breath-taking and I have the pictures to prove it!!!!

Michele Bernard Floral’s was the best decision I could have made when it came to my flowers for the ceremony to the reception. Michele came highly recommended to us, and with good reason. I told Michele what colors and some ideas that I had been kicking around, and she turned the vision into a reality that I didn’t even expect. Not only is she amazing at floral pieces, but her attention to my theme carried all the way through. She turned my love for butterflies into a nice touch of butterflies “floating” throughout the hall. Michele even took the time to straighten the wall sconces & pictures in the banquet hall, which is a pet peeve of mine, to make sure I wasn’t worried about anything the day of my wedding. I wish I was planning another wedding so that I could work with Michele again. Any bride who hires Michele will not be disappointed!

Michele was great!

First off, she was very professional -- easy to get in contact with and always returned my calls within the day. After an initial phone conversation about what I was looking for, she sent me a cost estimate and photos of arrangements for me to choose from. She was always very prompt with that kind of communication, and very straightforward about her services. Naturally, the flowers arrived right on time on my wedding day.

The price was reasonable, and Michele included some complimentary touches, including decorations on the sides of the ceremony aisle chairs, as well as an arrangement for our place card and gift tables. She was great about working with our budget, giving us the option to add more hydrangeas to decrease the price of the center pieces. She actually did beautiful little 2x2 arrangements in our bridal colors for the cocktail hour for $10/table -- who knew wedding flowers could be so affordable?

In general, I'm not a big flower person but I thought the flowers were absolutely beautiful. Really classy and pretty. We had a coin under one wine glass at each table, and whoever had that glass got to take home the centerpiece. I thought that would be fun, but was surprised by how much people were excited to take their flowers-- one friend dragged the thing all over our venue through the night because she didn't want to part with it.

Finally, Michele is just a nice person. She offered to give advice on anything -- flower-related or not, and took interest in getting to know me and my now-husband. Definitely recommend her!

Michele was super easy to work with, we met twice and we were able to work with a price I was comfortable with for both my flowers and uplighting. She even surprised us with flowers for the bridal party to wear in their hair on the day of.

I absolutely loved working with her, she was caring and supportive when (a crazy) bride needed it. I will call her for any events I plan in the futiure.

Michele was my favorite vendor! She was friendly, accommodating and very easy to work with throughout the entire planning process. During our initial meeting, she acted more like a wedding planner than just a florist, asking questions about details of my wedding that I had not even considered at that point in the planning process. She was full of ideas, but never pushed me in any one direction which was reassuring and allowed me to trust her completely from early on. She asked all the right questions and knew from the responses I provided what type of wedding I wanted to create before I think I even knew! Michele saw my vision and helped to create my dream wedding. I was blown away with everything she created, especially the centerpieces for our tables. They were absolutely beautiful and I wanted them to last forever! Lastly, Michele worked within the budget I had set and when I went over that budget adding things she made suggestions regarding what to take out and change so that I had everything I wanted in terms of floral needs for the wedding. Finally, I cannot forget to mention how patient Michele was throughout the planning process. She responded to my numerous emails on a very timely basis and offered additional in-person meetings to ease my concerns as the day approached. Many thanks to Michele! I highly recommend her services.

Michele saw my vision and helped to create my dream wedding. I was blown away with everything she created, especially the centerpieces for our tables. They were absolutely beautiful and I wanted them to last forever! Lastly, Michele worked within the budget I had set and when I went over that budget adding things she made suggestions regarding what to take out and change so that I had everything I wanted in terms of floral needs for the wedding. Finally, I cannot forget to mention how patient Michele was throughout the planning process. She responded to my numerous emails on a very timely basis and offered additional in-person meetings to ease my concerns as the day approached. Many thanks to Michele! I highly recommend her services. Read less

Michele was absolutely wonderful. When my planner directed me to her, I didn't really know what kind of flowers I wanted, but she made my vision come to life. She was very professional and an absolute joy to work with!!!! The flowers for the ceremony, as well as my bouquets and centerpieces were absolutely stunning and everyone was commenting on them. I would definitely recommend her to any bride.

Thanks to Michele, I had gorgeous, gorgeous flowers at my wedding. I could not have been more pleased with my bouquet and the bouquets for the bridesmaids (the colors went PERFECTLY with the bridesmaid dresses!), and the boutonnieres, the corsages and the kissing balls for the flower girls! My husband and I received so many compliments on all of the flowers and on the flowers for the reception -- from what I've been told, some of the guests were fighting over the table decorations at the end of the night! The chuppah decor was also wonderful -- I loved how elegant the ivy was, and my husband was relieved that it wasn't too "girly." As I was standing under the chuppah during the ceremony, I noted the accents Michele put on the inside of the canopy. They look amazing in the professional photos, and we really appreciated the touch! We were also so glad that we used one of Michele's chuppahs instead of going with something else because hers was better than anything we had seen in Judaica shops. The hatbox Michele made for the gifts was gorgeous, too -- I was really impressed with it, and we're now using it to store all of the cards we received! Michele is all about extra touches that she doesn't charge for, like including extra boutonnieres for the groomsmen, helping the groomsmen put on the boutonnieres, providing a vase of flowers for the womens' restroom, and having a crew come to assemble and then disassembled the chuppah so that the venue is not responsible for it. Michele even checked in with me and my mother several times to ask if she could get us anything or if we needed any help with anything -- in short, her flowers are beautiful, and she is professional and kind. A pleasure to work with and extremely accommodating and knowledgeable about flowers and decorating options, I HIGHLY recommend Michele Bernard.

Michele, thank you for making my wedding as beautiful as it was -- we could not have had such an elegant wedding without you!

Michele Bernard did a fantastic job with the flowers and linens at our wedding. We met on a couple of occasions and based on our conversations and photo comparisons she put together these bouquets, centerpieces, and linens that were exactly how I pictured them to be at our wedding! She conducts her business with professionalism and confidence all of which contribute to making the process hassle-free. Plus, she was very accommodating (up until the very morning of our wedding) and worked to stay within our budget. I would highly recommend her. She is a pleasure to work with and knows the business.

I cant say enough great things about Michele!! I knew exactly what I wanted and Michele delivered the most beautiful arrangements and bouquets I could ever imagine. Everyone was blown away by the flowers. She is extremely professional and flexible. I cut 2 guest tables 2 weeks prior to the wedding and Michele lowered the cost accordingly! Her pricing is VERY affordable and was FAR less than what all other floral designers quoted me for 3 varieties of orchids, roses, callas, dahlias in shades of orange, purple and chatruese (which Im told are not cheap!). She was generous enough to add many free extras and stayed at the reception site until everything was arranged. Her work was so impressive, the reception site has added her as a prefered vendor! I would not hesitate to recommend Michele! She is amazing!

Michele Bernard did such an amazing job at our wedding! Not only were the flowers absolutely gorgeous but Michele is a star to work with on design and budget. She also provided specialty linens for our event and it all came together perfectly. She made herself available anytime I had a question or needed to make a change, especially during the last couple of weeks leading up to the wedding. Our wedding was beautiful and it was in no small part due to Michele's hard work.

As soon as my husband and I got engaged I knew I would ask Michele to do our flowers!! My sister had Michele do her wedding and after seeing how beautiful her flowers were I knew she would be doing mine someday too!! Michele was great to work with, always had wonderful ideas and has a great vision and creativity for this business!! The girls in the wedding party loved their bouquets and mine was so beautiful! Everyone talked about the centerpieces and 1 year later they still are! I have friends that still put them out and put fresh flowers in them!! Not only did the flowers come out absolutely perfect but her prices are so great!! I heard comments that people thought I spent a fortune on my flowers, so NOT the truth!! Michelle is very professional, has great ideas and was so easy to work with!

Michele was exceptional in every aspect she was involved with for the wedding. She would bend over back words to get every bang for the buck! I had a small budget for my wedding and she worked wonders. She had many ideas for me and how to add color and fullness without spending a fortune. Her personality shined as she accomadated the bride to her fullest extent. She worked with my strange 3rd shift schedule and met me early in the morning. Michele is an incredible florist!!! I highly recommend her work. I was so pleased.

It's been over 6 months since our wedding day and my husband and I still are talking about how beautiful our flowers were! Now that we have our wedding album I can't help but look at the pictures and just admire the colors in my bouquet.
My husband and I had no idea what type of flowers we wanted but after meeting with Michele we knew to trust her with everything! She was amazing at meeting us at locations and times that would work with our schedule and she was always "on call" right up until the last minute! Her work is amazing. She came prepared to every meeting we had with samples and pictures. She also understood right away what look we were going for. Michele goes the extra mile for you and it's very easy to see that this is her passion. She makes you feel like you're not just another bride, but someone special to her. I considered her more like my wedding planner rather than just my florist.

If you have a grand vision for flowers at your wedding, but don't want to pay obscenely highly prices, I would highly recommend Michele Bernard. We wanted a mix of tall, showy arrangements and multiple low arrangements with lots of candles at our reception tables. Michele made it all happen within our budget. Not to mention, she threw in multiple arrangements at the Church,sweetheart table, restrooms, etc. as well as let us use her electric pillar candles / candle holders and votive candle holders at no cost. Most venues don't allow flame candles anymore and most other vendors would charge you for the cost of using their electric candles and candle holders -- Michele did not charge us. And no job is too small for Michele -- she even provided several arrangements for my bridal shower.

My only "critique" of Michele's work would be that the arrangements don't last longer than two days whereas the arrangements from high-end florists will last a week. Realistically though, this shouldn't matter for a wedding -- we used our reception arrangements for the brunch we hosted the next morning and they still looked great.

Overall, I would highly recommend Michele Bernard to any future bride -- she is very nice, easy to work with, always available and does great work at a fraction of the price of other florists.

I had met with some other florists before booking with Michele--and Michele was the only one who knew our venue and the industry enough to be able to make suggestions/not look to me to say everything I wanted (she somehow just "got" it.) The bouquets, centerpieces, chuppah, and all of the other touches were so beautiful. She listened to exactly what I wanted, put it into reality, and we got way more than we paid for! Michele is sometimes difficult to get in touch with but that's because she is working SO hard to make sure the event she has that weekend goes perfectly (I saw it first hand for my own event!)

Michele was by far the best vendor I worked with. She was always offering to help me with all sorts of random extra things, she threw a ton of stuff onto the flower order which was great because I no longer had to worry about it (card box, candles, etc). And she did an excellent job with the flowers. The centerpieces were beautiful. I had red and orange flowers, and everyone was talking about how great they came together in the centerpieces. Not only did Michele do her job amazingly well, but I was also told that the day of the wedding, she was rushing around helping out with other things. She moved my cake from the ceremony room to where it should be, she put programs out on the chairs, I think she even helped calm my mom down. She was wonderful to work with and I would recommend her to anyone.

After our second meeting we felt confident in trusting Michele with our bouquets, centerpieces, etc. and we were blown away by the final product. We still don't know how she created such beautiful centerpieces with our budget!

Michele did an amazing job with the flowers! They were so beautiful, and more than I could ever have imagined! She charges MUCH less than florists and I can't imagine anyone making prettier bouquets or table arrangements. She stayed within my budget and threw all kinds of things in for free. She was a little hard to get ahold of I wasn't totally sure what I was going to get in terms of a bouquet, but I showed her a few pictures and told her the colors I want and I was blown away when I say my bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets, just beautiful! I highly recommend her!!

Michele is amazing. Words cannot express what she did for my wedding. She made the whole night! She worked so hard to make my wedding dreams come true. All I wanted in my bouquet was peonies but they are typically not in season during the end of July. With the crazy weather this summer it just so happened that the flower market had 20 stems and Michele fought hard to get all 20! She has the most amazing ideas and never tells you no. She makes your vision a possibility! Michele thank you from the bottom of my heart for everything you did for me on my big day!

Michele completely blew me away with her flowers. She went above and beyond for me. When she found that she could get more flowers for my money then she thought, she bought them instead of pocketing the extra. Everything was exactly what I wanted.

Michele was our florist for our winter wedding in Boston and I am so glad that we got to work with her! The first time we sat down I explained my vision to her and showed her some pictures of flowers I loved (which ironically happened to be pictures of weddings SHE had done!); she understood me instantly. She knew exactly the feel I wanted the flowers to have, the colors I loved, the types of flowers, etc. and it was so easy to work with her. On the actual wedding day, she honestly exceeded our expectations; the centerpieces were stunning, the ceremony trees were better than I had imagined them, she used so many candles that the venue felt incredibly romantic, and she even went to get our RINGS from the hotel across the street because I had forgotten them!!! Who does that?! Most florists are gone by the time the bride gets there! Altogether Michele is a true professional who will put together a stunning wedding for you. In terms of value she was very willing to work within our budget but we ended up splurging anyway; my only critique (and it's not Michele's fault) is that wedding flowers are so expensive, it is seriously insane! But the money was worth it, I had never seen a more beautiful wedding in my life!

We loved Michele! The flower arrangements she provided were simply gorgeous, and all of the little "extras" she threw in really helped to tie everything together. The quality in what she provided was exceptional, and for such a reasonable price! The only comment I have is that she can be unresponsive via email, but she more than makes up for it in person and on the wedding day!

I really enjoyed working with Michele. I went in with a vision of what I wanted for flowers and she ran with my thoughts and the final product was above and beyond what i had originally envisioned. Her attention to detail, and knowledge of the subject at hand are incredible. Even though my wedding was out in Sturbridge MA, she was willing to meet with me when business brought her to the Boston area. In our first meeting, I showed her a picture of my dress, the color of my girl's dresses, and some inspiration photos I had pulled out of various magazines. At our second meeting she showed up with sample flowers, so I could actually see what I would be getting, and we pulled it all together with just a few phone calls towards the end. I will admit that I did have to dig deep for patients sometimes, as she is quite the busy florist, but in the end my patients payed off and I was so thrilled with the end result!!!

Michele's work is unbelievable... my flowers were perfect! I even had made some of my own centerpieces and in the end needed help with them and she stepped in and took over and made them even more beautiful! My only complaint is she doesnt respond in a timely manner- she is a one women show and VERY busy, and for someone like me that is ultra organized it was difficult waiting a week or maybe more before a reply. But, in the end, (we did spend a lot) everything was great and i would recommend her to anyone!

I cannot say enough about the flowers and decorations Michele gave me for my wedding. Everything was above and beyond what i was expecting. Michele took my ideas and ran with them, adding little details that i really wasn't expecting.
I was nervous that i hadn't given Michele enough information on what I wanted, but everything came out exactly how I saw it in my head and so much better.
I had contacted Michele a year before my wedding - her response time is not great, but in the end it really doesn't matter becuase her work is unbeleivable.

This was a second marriage for me so I wasn't all that particular about the flowers. If this has been my first marriage I would have been a little disappointed. I had sent an e-mail making flower changes a week or so prior to the event but never received a response. The florist then didn't recall getting my email. Needless to say, the changes didn't happen. The flowers were fresh upon arrival. The table settings were gorgeous. They were exactly what I was hoping for and the flowers were very fresh and lasted a while. My bouquet is drying very nicely. I would still recommend this vendor but suggest that you do a little research in advance and have a good idea of what you want when you meet with her the first time. I didn't do this so I wasn't really prepared to make the decisions.

Michele is very talented and her designs are original and beautiful. Michele does not have a storefront, but she does travel all over. Michele has a policy that all design conversations must be made in person, but she is flexible with meeting you at any location. We felt her prices were very reasonable for the quality of her work. I left most of the design up to Michele, so we really didn’t have any idea what the flowers were going to look like. I was pleasantly surprised with my gorgeous bouquet, ceremony flowers, and centerpieces. My only major complaint was with the table runners she provided us. At our final meeting we showed Michele a swatch of the ribbon we were using on the cake, menu cards, and glass votives. She came up with the idea of incorporating table runners in the same color. At her suggestion, we had to change our upgraded linens to plain ivory tablecloths in order not to compete with the table runners. On the day of the wedding, I was disappointed to see her table runners were just (at most) 3” wide ribbon. It was a bummer because we had to change to the plain ivory tablecloths, and a single strip of ribbon across them just looked silly. Overall, we enjoyed working with Michele and we were happy with our flowers, but I will admit that she set really high expectations for us and we felt like she didn’t live up to them 100%.

In the beginning things ran fairly smooth for us but towards the wedding day the only stress I had was with the flowers. We were on two different pages of what I wanted and I did not see a sample until exactly a week and a half before my wedding date and it looked nothing like what we had previously discussed. In that I was disappointed, however, she did deliver on the day of the wedding and everything came out beautifully. She did end up going above and beyond and I am happy to say that we did not have any issues the day of the wedding. To do it over again I would go with Michele based soley on her quality of work.

After months of research and a stack of glowing reviews, I thought myself safe with choosing Michele. Initially, our meeting went well and I thought we communicated with each other very clearly. She said that our budget was fine for what I requested, and that she understood my vision for the centerpieces, bouts, decor, etc.

At our final meeting, we again seemed to be on the same page. She confirmed everything we'd previously discussed, which included extremely specific requests: absolutely NOTHING RED, white chiffon draping over and covering the doors that were the backdrop to our ceremony, candles of varied heights throughout the centerpieces.

On the wedding day, those three requests were not honored. My spray (pinned to the muff I carried) had red berries. The bouts and corsages had red berries. The card table and ladies' restroom had red poinsettias. There was zero draping in front of the ceremony doors -- they were completely bare and had fingerprints all over that are visible in our pictures. And while the content of the centerpieces were fine, there were only one or two other candles of the same height, not scattered at different heights. I was heartbroken.

I have been too upset by this to contact Michele myself, so my mother (who was outraged) communicated with her and received a 10% refund. Neither my mother nor I am satisfied with this, but realistically we understand that there is little else Michele can do at this point.

Looking back at my photos of a day I worked on for 20 months, I still have to contain my disappointment (and some tears). I never expected such blatant disregard for a bride's requests, and will not recommend Michele to other brides following this experience.

My husband and I met Michelle and liked her a lot. The many, many photos she brought with her of her work were so beautiful and she was really able to expertly capture my thoughts and design the bouquets and arrangements around them. The one thing that threw us off a litte at this meeting was that when asked what our budget was we told her and she said that was absolutely no problem, she could stay within that. But by the end of the appointment she presented us with a quote that was around $600 more than our budget. We kindly pointed this out and she said that this is just a work in progress and it can always be adjusted down. We didn't think too much of this and in the end decided to hire her.

Before signing the contract with her we found Michelle to be super responsive. We loved this about her and felt comfortable that she was making us a priority. However, once we signed the contract she became very, very hard to get in touch with. I didn't care all that much at the beginning as I would email her occasionally with little questions and I understood that perhaps she had bigger fish to fry. While admitting that this would not be the way I would conduct business with clients, I simply was just trying to give her the benefit of the doubt.

Several months later it came time to finalize details with her. During this appointment there were a few things that rubbed us the wrong way. First, the laptop she was using to record the notes from our meeting had an external drive plugged into it, where the info was being stored. It bounced around clumsily all through the meeting (see more below on this). The next thing that bothered us is that she once again "forgot" what our budget was, even though we mentioned it again, and kept pushing the more expensive flowers. In the end we negotiated and both sides were happy.

A week or so later I get a phone call/email from her saying that she had had an accident with her external hardrive and all of our information had been lost. She asked if we could meet again to go over the details. At this point we had so much going on w/ the planning but I took a deep breath and agreed to redo the meeting. She specified when I could get in touch with her and several times when I tried to call her she was unavailable. We played some phone tag until the calls from her end stopped altogether. At one point I think I had called and emailed at least 6 times with no communication from her at all. FINALLY she catches up with my husband and I as we are in the car running errands. We had to start from scratch which wouldn't have been a huge problem, except that she had forgotten everything we negotiated on in our last meeting and once again was pushing the more expensive options. And because I was in the car I didn't have anything in front of me to look at and even I couldn't recall all the details from our last meeting. After some back and forth we finalized the details and pricing and she sent the final invoice. 2 big problems. One, the center pieces she billed us were $15 more each than she said they would be and two, she credited us for a deposit that was $200 less than what we paid. We got this squared away with her as soon as we could but instead of admitting her mistakes she continued to claim the invoice was a work in progress. At this point it was supposed to be finalized, so it seemed she was just making excuses.

At the end of it all the flowers were delivered to all locations she promised on time and they were stunningly beautiful. However, we went through so much frustration with trying to get in touch with her and getting her to get the details right that we wish we would have gone another route.

Michele Bernard responded with the following comments:

In response to the above review.... The unique way I provide service to my brides is to meet with them where it convenient for time and location for the bride. This means I am on the road constantly from early in the AM til as late as 10 pm. I meet with my brides as often as needed. Not many designers meet clients thru out Boston at venues late into the evening as I do at no charge to the client... By doing this, it makes the process easier for the bride, but does limit my office time. I tell all my clients it can take several days for me to respond to your email or voicemail...

My computer hardrive did in fact crash and I was completely forthright with this information. This as well as 2 others were not saved in the most updated format. Unfortunately it happened with this client.

I am happy the bride was happy with our product, I remember distinctly how happy the bride , her Mother and bridesmaids were with your flowers on that day as I stayed at the Hotel to make sure all details were perfect.

We're so glad that are wedding day was filled with love...because flowers it was NOT!

We were underwhelmed by the amount of flowers on the wedding Chuppah and accent areas. She was extremely difficult to contact and did not reply to emails promptly. Communication is clearly not her strong point.

She promised "complimentary" amenity baskets and didn't follow thru.

We would not recommend this vendor for anyone seeking flowers for a wedding.
