We had Opalia do our wedding flowers for our Brooklyn Winery wedding. I had used Opalia previously and so my expectations were high - they exceeded every one. Working with Erin, the floral designer, was a breeze. Erin was responsive, professional and very warm. We were going for a vintage, romantic, "dusty"/purple-ish vibe and she totally got it. She executed exactly what we were looking for. Our flowers were amazing. Guests were commenting all night and more than one of them sent me pictures in the following days saying how beautiful the flowers were. I was still in awe, days later, at how exquisite they were. Just perfection.

The service at Opalia is impeccable! They captured exactly what my vision was for my wedding. I loved my bouquet soo much, it was everything that I invisioned. The boutonnieres, corsages, maids bouquet were perfect. Erin and the staff at Opalia are wonderful and so helpful. I would highly recommended them to any Brooklyn Bride.

Opalia has lovely displays and I wanted to select a vendor that was in my neighborhood so I could avoid the delivery fee. My bouquet and boutonnieres were delivered on-time and the consultation process was painless + professional. I wasn't wowed per se by my bouquet because the peonies I wanted were not the original shade I had envisioned and there was no common language we could use to determine the exact shade for the flowers. However, in retrospect, I was paying for convenience and the flowers were alright so I was ok with the way things worked out. They are on the pricier side of things so in line with the wedding industry - don't expect great value here.

Opalia did an amazing job putting together the centerpieces, bouquets and boutonnieres for our wedding day. The consultation process was very thorough and (being someone who is very particular about flowers) they did a great job listening to my wants/don't wants when providing an outline of my vision for the day. Erin ended up managing my event as there was a change in staff, and I was extremely pleased with the transition as well as her flexibility, eagerness, and diligence in providing the vision that was first determined during our consultation. She really went above and beyond, our arrangements were even more beautiful than I could have imagined and our guests were blown away. The flowers were fresh, lush, and lasted at least a week after the wedding. My bouquet was particularly gorgeous, I received compliments on it the whole day. All at a reasonable price that fit within my budget. I would definitely recommend Opalia for any event.

We used Opalia flowers for our wedding and overall were very pleased with the flowers. I was a little nervous about the flowers because 1) I don't know much about flowers 2) I really did not want to spend too much on them, and 3) none of the portfolio Opalia had was really the type of style we were looking for. But flowers were not my highest priority and Opalia said they could deliver what we wanted for under $1500, so we went with them anyway and hoped for the best.

The flowers on our wedding day turned out exactly as I had pictured and hoped for. They were a more natural and less formal look and we used a variety of small vases. I was really happy with how they all turned out, and my bouquet was also really pretty and matched the vibe of several pictures I had provided.

My only complaint was that the personal flowers were 45 minutes late being delivered. On a wedding day where everything is scheduled down to the minute, this was an added stress. It all worked out OK, but I would simply recommend that you book a delivery window in advance of when you actually need the flowers.

To be honest, both my fiance and I were not that invested in our flowers for our wedding. I do love flowers but I didn't want to spend a crazy amount of money on centerpieces. Meeting with Barbara was amazing because she was so flexible and did not make us feel bad at all because of our smallish budget. She gave us four options to choose from and we loved them all!

Working with Barbara was so great because she was so laid back and understanding. Not to mention, her work is absolutely gorgeous. I got so many compliments on my bouquet (even my photographer asked who my florist was). Overall, the flowers were the least stressful part of the planning process and it's all because of Barbara!

Opalia created the most beautiful bouquet, centerpieces, altar pieces, boutonnieres, and other floral touches for our wedding last Saturday. We worked with Barbara, who is absolutely fantastic. My fiancé (now husband) was not as invested in flowers as in other aspects of the wedding so my mom and I worked with Barbara to come up with a floral approach that was somewhat wintery without evoking a holiday feel.

Barbara did an amazing job, working with some photos and very vague descriptions from me (and my mom :)), to translate my aesthetic into reality. We had one detailed meeting with Barbara before she provided a thorough proposal that included a list of the types of flowers to be used in each piece, number/types of pieces, and a cost estimate. After that, I trusted her completely and only touched base a few times on tweaks and logistics prior to my wedding.

For the event, she and her team really delivered. When I saw the flowers I couldn't believe how closely they matched the look and feel I'd been hoping for. Guests complimented the centerpieces and my bouquet multiple times throughout the wedding.

Barbara worked with my budget and was straightforward in all communications. I felt like she was "on my team", helping me create a solution that would work for me monetarily while ensuring that the space looked rich and lush.

My mom and I adored working with Barbara. I look forward to continuing to purchase flowers from Opalia in the years to come!

Barbara and her team created an amazing floral extravaganza for us! I could not have been happier.

Barbara helped me ages before the wedding, chatting our way through all the seasonal flowers and surprising me with little details that I adored. She was flexible and responsive all the way, helping me find ways to keep costs down, suggesting cuts and adaptations. There was no hard sell, no pressure ever. She let us use our own bottles and everyone at Opalia surprised me with all the little arrangements.

Everyone did an amazing job.
Thank you!

Barbara and the rest of the team were amazing!!! I would highly recommend Opalia to everyone. I can't stress enough how super easy to work with and were really patient and accomodating. We always felt like Barbara had everything under control and she's a very laid-back person so nothing ever felt rushed.

We got married at India House in New York City. Our venue had kind of an old NYC/antique feel to it. I collected white pitchers of varying sizes to use as centerpieces. I explained our vision to Barbara and immediately felt as though she undestood what we were looking to achieve. Our flowers were beautiful. We had so many compliments on them. Babara was awesome and was even cool when we had to make a few last-minute changes/additions. We enjoyed working with her so much, we asked her to do our rehearsal dinner flowers as well. We weren't even planning on having a florist do the flowers because we had our rehearsal dinner at a little bistro in Brooklyn.

We considered several other florists and we're thrilled we made the decision to go with Opalia. Their quote was also the most reasonable estimate we got which I cannot believe since the flowers were so beautiful.

I cannot recommend them highly enough.
