Nola floral was not the choice we went with so you may not want to use my review as gospel. I will say they were extremely professional and helpful in our consultation. However, they were VERY pricey. I will say, the work I saw was BEAUTIFUL. However, I am happy with the florist I went with in the end.

I absolutely loved the flowers I ordered for my wedding day. The ladies at NOLAFLORA were amazing. I got married this year on mother's day weekend. The girls there asked me to send a pinterest account and although I had many accounts I could not select one that would quite define what I wanted to instead i sent an email. The amazing ladies were able to piece together my thoughts into one cohesive thought. They sent me a plan and then i edited changing cetain colors, requesting certain flowers and cutting some of my original crazy thoughts on eucalyptus. At the meeting they young lady was kind and patient as I butchered the plan with a red pen. If I was her I would have wanted to ring my neck. But she didnt, She smiled, she waited and the owner even sent me an orchid to smell. You could tell they really enjoyed the beauty and fragrances and their heart to share with the world. I ended up going with white hydrangeas and light purple orchid florets with champagne ribbon for the bridesmaids, light purple orchids for groomsman, a gardenia for the groom, gardenias for my hair and hanging orchid, gardenias and ( i forget the name) something similar to an Orange Blossom hanging in a bouquet that is vintage late 1800s. They created my bouquet as a replica of a photo I sent them of my Great Grandmother's wedding bouquet. Very unique with ribbon hanging and smaller bouquet hanging, When I sat with the young lady who took my order I was nervous if she was understanding that I wanted it to look as close to that bouquet as she could. She said she would try her best. Sure enough their best was awesome. On the "day of" the delivery person found me in the chaos of our hotel room, asked me to check out their work and I was floored. They had matched her bouquet perfectly. I used the fresh gardenias in my hair and I felt like a million bucks. I felt like myself. Not some uppity bride but the simplicity of the work I requested needed a killer florist and they nailed it!!!

Nola Flora was recommended to us by another vendor, and they seemed to have good reviews so after meeting with Ashley, we decided to go with them. Everyone was very nice throughout the process, but there were some difficulties. Ashley met with us a few times, but my husband and I always felt like nothing got done after the meetings. She typed up the contract in a word document after we met and listed several flower types that she would use. We looked at some pictures while we were there but never got a sense of what the flowers would look like together. I did change my colors a couple of times but that was months in advance of the wedding. I sent her several emails of pictures of flower colors and arrangements that I liked, but she never incorporated the changes or responded to anything until the night before she needed me to finalize the contract. I had met with another florist before we had decided to go with Nola Flora and that florist had all types of flowers in her shop that she pulled together to show me what they looked like in person as well as pictures of arrangements which was very helpful. With Nola Flora, I was left Google-ing all the flowers she listed in my flower plan to see what everything looked like and some of the pictures I found weren't even the right flowers (clearly, I'm not a florist). I would call to check in during the process to make sure everything was ok with my ideas, but I never heard anything back until, like I said, right before the wedding. I will say that Ashley was willing to work with our budget and get the price down so that helped. They also delivered to my bridal prep, the church, and the reception which was very convenient. Unfortunately, I hated my bouquet and am so so sad about that. I had given her a very specific picture that I wanted replicated for my bouquet, but the one I got was hideous. I also HATED the boutonnieres and pin on corsages! They looked like funeral flowers, so disgusting. The arrangements turned out nice

Ashley at NOLA Flora was very professional. She always promptly returned phone calls and emails, had no problem with late changes, completed the order exactly like the photos I sent to her, and was reasonably priced. On the day of the wedding, the staff worked with me to set up the room beautifully.

I'll try to make this quick and to the point:

The arrangements we did receive were no doubt gorgeous. However, what we got was not what we paid for. We felt that NOLA Flora charged us for what we wanted, then gave us all possible substitutes. The bridesmaids' bouquets were ordered to be all pink peonies, and they came as mostly white with a few really pale pink peonies. The groomsmen's boutonnieres were ordered to be pink ranunculus, and came as pink roses. We understood that what we wanted might not be available on our date 2 weeks prior, but it felt odd that nothing we wanted was available. The bride's bouquet was ordered to be cascading, and came out not so much. At the church, we paid for 2 column rentals, which we didn't want in the first place and were not even there. At the reception, we paid for 3 sweetheart table arrangements, and only got 1 (with no reimbursement). At the last minute, we ended up needing to rent an acrylic column from them and surprisingly, we were charged $300 from NOLA Flora for 1 while the reception hall charged us $100 for 2 similar ones.

When we contacted NOLA Flora after the big day (about just half the things that disappointed us), we were given a rude response. NOLA Flora claimed that we were always in the wrong, stating how she discussed those things with us before the day. When in fact she did not because we would have talked about reimbursements, since we essentially got less than what we paid for. And she knew we were over the discussed budget. Eventually, she recredited the charge for the last-minute acrylic column rental, but never apologized for anything.

Furthermore, what others have said about responsiveness is true, it is not immediate. Once, I had to come in just for her to send me an email the next day. But their flexibility on a last-min change was superb, besides the surprising charge. I'd only recommend NOLA Flora if you've got the $ and don't need those rare flowers, otherwise, it's not worth it.

NOLA-FLORA responded with the following comments:

We strive to give couples the wedding day they’ve always imagined, so we’re disappointed when we hear that expectations were not met. We have received countless praise for our attention to detail and execution, and appreciate this opportunity to respond.

The only flower substitution made was the spray roses for the boutonnieres, as ranunculus was simply not available. Luckily, spray roses were an approved substitute by the bride and we were happy to accommodate. The bride’s bouquet was an exact match to the photo provided. The columns were removed due to ceremony site restrictions, and the client was not charged, which was explained.

The sweetheart table was originally a different size and thanks to a last minute complimentary site visit, we discovered the pre-planned arrangements would not fit, so we created one arrangement that equaled in value to the original set up.

The acrylic columns were a required addition when the venue deemed a last-minute structure created by the client as too unstable for our original floral design. Our fees would differ for the rental of on site columns, as we must build in labor and delivery fees.

The bride was texted photos of the florals as we set up and approved it the day of the event. Additionally, we checked in with the on site contact to make sure everything was approved prior to leaving. You can imagine our surprise to hear that we did not meet expectations, after being told everything was great. The following link will take you to one of our in house images that illustrates the set up- https://www.dropbox.com/s/8p2b5tq84goy5hs/Nola%20Flora.jpg.

The above issues were brought to our attention, and we responded with what we felt was a fair and generous solution. Unfortunately, this review by the bride’s sister was the surprising response.

We have had the honor of producing florals for hundreds of weddings over the last 10 years. We are happy to offer references to our clients if desired.

NOLA FLORA was a joy to work with. I was planning this wedding out of state and they accommodated my schedule when I'd fly in at unusual times to take care of wedding details. I really wanted a lot of color in our bouquets and wanted some creativity with succulents and pushing the envelope of coral and turquoise colors. They nailed it!

I loved how colorful the bouquets and two large arrangements and flower girl flower balls turned out, but I really loved the groomsmen boutonniere's where they used succulents. So creative!

I didn't have to worry about any of the details of when the flowers were arriving to the church or the hotel for the first look. NOLA FLORA is so experienced, they knew the venues and what to do.
