Melissa was wonderful to work with, she provided great recommendations on the types of flowers and arrangements for our ceremony and reception. The floral arrangements were beautiful, she even made an arbor for our ceremony and had large arrangements of flowers on both ends, more than I could have hoped for and our guests kept commenting on how gorgeous all the colors looked! I highly recommend working with her!

Melissa was an absolute joy to work with, and I couldn't have been happier with the way our bouquets, chuppah, centerpieces, and various other floral arrangements turned out. From day one, Melissa was professional, responsive, and very flexible. My family changed their minds several times about our order, but she always accommodated, and she even went out of her way to get strands of jasmine for a traditional Buddhist ritual. The most amazing thing was how affordable she was, and she went above and beyond to give me the wedding I've always envisioned while staying within our budget. I will always be grateful for Melissa's hard work, artistry, and above all, kindness.

Melissa knew that stargazer lilies were my favorite flower from the first consultation -- because I couldn't stop staring at a picture of a bouquet in her photo album! The bouquets were just gorgeous and the arbor was exactly as she had described. We decided a few weeks before the wedding to have her do centerpieces as well and she included them for a very reasonable price. We didn't see Melissa on the day of our wedding so we didn't get a chance to thank her, but she definitely made the perfect venue even more beautiful with her flowers!

Melissa blew my mind away. I emailed her pics of my vision and not only did she capture it, she enhanced it. Never could I have imagined how stunning and romantic the flowers would be. She was thorough, timely, caring, and affordable. Yet the flowers looked lavish and expensive. You can tell she loves what she does as the flowers we made with love. And what else could you ask for at a wedding!!

When we first sat down with Melissa I didn't know too much about what I wanted. I knew some flowers I liked (but not their names) and she was able to create the vision I wanted. We met many times to work on details. I felt it was important to speak in person so I could show and explain my ideas. She was always willing to meet and quick to find a time that worked for both of us.

I was nervous about wilting flowers or flowers that weren't open enough but her timing was perfect. She knows the exact amount of time the flowers will need to be ready and she nailed it! We received so many compliments on our flowers the day of our wedding. Melissa created such beautiful bouquets and centerpieces. It made me so happy looking around our reception and seeing what I wanted all along.

Melissa knows flowers and can help you create whatever you want whether or not you know where to begin. I would recommend her to anyone.

Melissa was wonderful! She met with me several times and communicated via email about my wedding flowers and décor vision. She was extremely creative in executing what I had in mind. When she arrived at my bridal suite with my bouquet and bridesmaid's bouquets, I was speechless. They were exactly what I wanted and I received so many compliments on are how beautiful they were. She was able to make my centerpieces based on some of my ideas, and they turned out great. The purple vanda orchids, cream white roses, and the purple/white calla lilies were bright and vibrant. Melissa was terrific to work with and I would highly recommend her for her level of professionalism and creativity.

Melissa is a really easy and pleasant person to work with. I really appreciated her flexibility and willingness to develop ideas that worked and fit into our budget. I will say that if you’re not picky about flowers, then Melissa would be great to do your wedding. However, I am very particular about flowers but also had a small budget to work with so I don’t believe she created the vision I had in my head. I’d put together some photos to provide a visual on the soft, romantic arrangements I had my heart set on using creams, soft pink/blush and hints of green. Unfortunately, the blush pink flowers she’d ordered came in hot/bright pink, but we didn’t find this out until the day before the wedding when she’d sent me a preview of the bridesmaids bouquets.

I realize that she cannot control whether an order comes in as blush or bright pink, but that is something that our wedding planner or I should have been notified of the minute she received the order so we could determine an alternate solution if needed.

There were also flowers in the bouquets that we did not agree upon in the contract including my bridal bouquet. Had I not had a specific vision, this might have been OK, but we'd outlined together at the final meeting exactly what should be in each arrangement and bouquet. Again, if she wanted to add more or needed something else to fill or substitute them, our wedding planner or I should have been notified as soon as the order came in.

I also wish she’d offered more guidance on the colors of the flowers – there was just way too much pink in them to give the muted toned I had envisioned. As the expert, brides really rely on florists to guide them and make their vision a reality so I wish she’d been more vocal in that regard too.

As I said, she’s professional and easy to work with and the flowers were beautiful even though they weren’t exactly what I wanted/asked for, but I think communication and more guidance needs to be incorporating with clients.

Melissa with My Wedding Flowers was wonderful. Working with her was an absolute pleasure. She was mindful of my budget and offered great ideas to make the decorations stunningly beautiful, including adding lights to the re-used centerpiece arrangements (from the ceremony). She was always coming up with creative solutions and really knew her flowers to suggest beautiful shades and hues that were only in my head. THANK YOU MELISSA!

Melissa is amazing to work with. She's very knowledgeable and helped me pick out flowers when I had NO clue what I wanted. She handled the fact that I changed my mind constantly so well. The flowers were, for the most part, beautiful. The bouquets were perfect. The only complaints I have are that she didn't help the guys put on their boutonnières and she forgot the complimentary petals for the flower girls to throw (we had an extra boutonniere that we tore up last minute). Overall, very happy :)

Melissa was so great!

My flowers were PERFECT!! everything I imagined she put together in real life,And most importantly helped me stay with in my budget. I had mostly cream,ivory,and white flowers..every one of them looked crisp and vibrant and beautiful, i was worried they were going to get brown around the edges easily or not look as crisp as i imagined it,was not the case at all!

She is so sweet and so nice to work with.

Was Referred to her by my Wedding planner Myrna from "For all Occasions" LOVED HER!

Melissa Sylvain owns My Wedding Flowers and I loved working with her. I didn’t appreciate flowers at all before working with her. She actually has made me love flowers – which is very hard to do since I’ve always hated them! I went into our consultation not knowing ANYTHING about what I wanted or what flowers I wanted in my bouquets. I just had pictures of what I liked and what colors I wanted. She took all my thoughts and put them in a bouquet that was absolutely stunning. I was seriously SO THRILLED when she dropped them off at my bridal suite. She’s really patient, too, AND she even did a FaceTime chat with me when all the flowers came in so she could show me what would go with what. Her prices are definitely really competitive and they’re AFFORDABLE. Flowers were at the end of my budget and she definitely was able to work within my small budget for flowers. She’s awesome!!

I met with four florists before deciding to work with Melissa. The first florist I met with informed me the flowers I had my heart set on were out of season. I used this as a way though to find out which florist was creative enough to still give me the same feel. I was disappointed by what the other florists were telling me though. I brought Melissa pictures of what I had wanted and said I knew it couldn't happen but could she come up with something similar. Similar wasn't good enough for her though...she wanted to give me my dream! So when she suggested used fake flowers I was a little wary because most fake flowers look cheap. She showed me an example of a "real touch" flower and I thought we'd give it a try because it did look real. Well the flowers absolutely blew my mind! They were gorgeous and looked so real and even smelled real. One of my bridesmaids had her bouquet in her hands for over an hour before she realized they were fake. Melissa did an outstanding job of arranging the flowers and gave me what I thought was impossible. And, on top of all that, she was respectful of my budget and beat the quote of all the other 3 florists! Plus, I'll be able to keep my bouquet forever without having to preserve it.

Leading up to the wedding Melissa was very quick to respond to emails. As a bride who lived in a different state than where my wedding was held, this was so helpful! She also checked in with me a few weeks before the wedding to make sure everything was still the same. She was even so helpful as to have my flowers ready the Tuesday before my wedding so I could pick them up on my way from the airport and have one less thing to worry about the day of the wedding. Melissa's friendly and professional attitude and her talent made my wedding flowers absolutely perfect!

I met with four florists before deciding to work with Melissa. The first florist I met with informed me the flowers I had my heart set on were out of season. I used this as a way though to find out which florist was creative enough to still give me the same feel. I was disappointed by what the other florists were telling me though. I brought Melissa pictures of what I had wanted and said I knew it couldn't happen but could she come up with something similar. Similar wasn't good enough for her though...she wanted to give me my dream! So when she suggested used fake flowers I was a little wary because most fake flowers look cheap. She showed me an example of a "real touch" flower and I thought we'd give it a try because it did look real. Well the flowers absolutely blew my mind! They were gorgeous and looked so real and even smelled real. One of my bridesmaids had her bouquet in her hands for over an hour before she realized they were fake.

Melissa was wonderful to work with! She was so professional, listened to and delivered exactly what I asked for and was there early to deliver the flowers on my wedding day. Our centerpieces were set up perfectly and we had no worries about clean up since she came back and got them. Also, her prices are the best I found anywhere.

Melissa, owner of My Wedding Flowers, is very nice and very easy to work with. She made me feel very welcomed at our first meeting. I did not have similar experiences with other florists I had met with. I had done a lot of research on flowers before meeting with Melissa. But, I am not overly knowledgeable about flowers. I made sure I came with suggestions and ideas about what I wanted, including lots of pictures. Melissa was able to offer me everything I was looking for within my budget - no other florist was able to do that. I even had Melissa create a sample centerpiece for our tasting at the reception place. I was happy with the sample, but I should have asked questions about the flowers that were not yet bloomed in the centerpiece. I just assumed that the unbloomed flowers were a fact of only having one centerpiece done. Never did I think any of the centerpieces, bouquets, boutonniere, etc. would include unbloomed flowers, but they did. On my wedding day, I was left in the limo before the ceremony, as my church did not have a place for me to wait out of sight. So, my coordinator brought me my bouquet. My first impression was disappointment. I need to explain why. My favorite color is purple...not pink/purple or blue/purple, but purple. I made this very clear at my first meeting with Melissa. I even expressed concern about being able to have purple flowers that were purple and not pink/purple or blue/purple at the initial meeting. Melissa said not to worry, the flowers I have selected will be purple. I even brought up the thought of switching to red roses, if I could not get purple. Again, she said not to worry, but it was up to me. So, I decided to go for it. My bouquet did have some purple in it, but it definitely had more blue than purple. When I showed a picture of the bouquet to someone not at the wedding, her reaction that the bouquet did look nice, but it was definitely on the blue side. Also, a few of the flowers looked to be wilting already. Then, when I was walking down the aisle with my dad, I was a little sad to notice that the flowers on the alter - pink. I really didn't see any purple in those arrangements - just pink with some white and green thrown in. I had also requested for the corsages for the women to have magnets. I found out while sitting in the limo that the delay was because the magnets did not work and they were having to pin all of the ladies - I purchased a decent number of boutonnieres and corsages and now all of them had to be pinned, which takes time. I did not plan for this either. While the centerpieces at the reception did look more like the sample I had paid for ahead of time, they also had flowers that were already wilting. I think the wilting issue is because Melissa is out in South Riding and my ceremony was in DC with the reception in Arlington, VA. I think the ride from South Riding to DC and Arlington, VA was too much for the flowers.

This review has been difficult to write because Melissa really is a very nice person and easy to work with. I was just disappointed with the color of the flowers. I had immediately wished I went simple and did all red roses from another vendor I had met that had the most goregous red roses that were just a little outside my budget. Unfortunately for me, I had my heart set on purple. Also, I was disappointed that I saw some wilting flowers. I guess I should have realized that could happen because of the distance. I recommend selecting a florist that is not that far from your location(s). AND...make sure you are ok with pink/purple or blue/purple, if you go for purple flowers...it may happen to you, too. One last piece of advice, becareful about selecting pomanders for the flower girl. While it was beautiful initially, it began wilting pretty quickly just from all of the movement, and I even had a 9 year old flower girl. The pomander issue did not seem to be an issue with Melissa, just a fact of what it is.

After my first meeting with Melissa I knew I would book her. She was so easy to work with and was willing to give me some ideas on the flowers I could use. Her pricing sheet included pictures, and a breakdown of pricing - something I didn't get from other florist and I really appreciated.

The day of the wedding she arrived on time and everything was better than I expected. She did such a wonderful job and I would recommend her to anyone else looking for a florist!

Melissa was absolutely wonderful to work with. She accomadeted my wishes for wanting horseshoes tied in to my flower arrangements to decorate the aisle, and my dream of having shammrocks in my bouquet. The day of my wedding it was raining when she arrived and she stayed late to help set up after the rain had cleared. All the flowers were completely goregous!!! We even had a cake emergency the day of the wedding and she helped fix that too! Her prices are great and her work is fantastic!!!!

Melissa provided the flowers for my wedding in August, 2011. She provided flowers for the aisle, tables, and the bridal party. Melissa was so easy to work with! She took the few sketchy ideas I had about what I wanted and helped us turn it into the look we wanted. I don't know much about flowers, but Melissa is very knowledgeable and answered all of my questions. The flowers at the wedding were beautiful and fresh. Everyone commented on how pretty they were (and they stayed pretty all week after the wedding!). She was very flexible in letting us borrow vases for a brunch the following morning, and even let me use her vases to take the flowers home. The service and products we received were a great value. Melissa charged less than other florists in the area, and gave us personal attention that we wouldn't have found anywhere else. Thank you for working with us, Melissa! You helped me achieve the look I wanted and made it so easy.

Our planner, Felicia from Celebrations Made Simple, referred us to Melissa. We had a tight budget and I didn't want to go flower crazy. Melissa has a home studio, which helps to cut out the "middle man" costs. I didn't really have a concrete vision for what flowers I wanted, so Melissa probed about our wedding colors and let us browse through floral books. With little direction, Melissa was able to design the perfect floral displays. My bouquet and the bridal party flowers were gorgeous and vibrant. Also, the flowers for our reception lasted for 2 weeks! Melissa was great to work with--she met our budget and delivered a quality product. She's awesome and I definitely would work with her again.

Sylvains does beautiful work! I wasn't exactly sure what I wanted and Melissa helped me create flower arrangements that fit with my theme and decor. So many people commented on how nice the arrangements looked. Sylvain's prices were excellent and Melissa always go back to me quickly whenever I had a question. I will continue to use Sylvain's in the future!
