Polly did the flowers for my wedding and I highly recommend her! I live out of town, and planning for the wedding was really difficult, especially in terms of finding reliable vendors. Everywhere we went, when asking for recommendations for flowers, everyone said Poppies by Polly McCarthy was the best in town. We were so happy with the work she did and are glad we chose her! The flowers were stunning and her pricing was very reasonable.

I am not especially informed or opinionated about flowers, but after meeting with Polly and showing her pictures of things I liked, she was able to create beautiful bouquets, boutonnieres, and center pieces. Many guests commented on how beautiful the center pieces were. I also loved how she took care of the details - including buying candles so we didn't have to worry about it. My bridal party appreciated how Polly sends a worker to the location of the ceremony to help the men with their boutonnieres and to drop off the bouquets. One less thing for us to worry about!

The only drawback is that Polly does not have a website. I had to flip through many physical albums to look at pictures of varying quality to point out flowers or looks I liked or didn't like which could be tough for out of town brides. I wish that process had been a little easier, and I think if there was a website with more pictures of past events available online and different varieties of the flowers she uses by color, that would have been very helpful for people like me who don't know much about flowers. For example, since our flower girls were not allowed to throw petals, Polly suggested flower wands. She didn't have many pictures available of flower wands she had created, and that wasn't a concept I was familiar with, so we had to trust her. That said, they were adorable and perfect for the girls. I'd also recommend contacting her via phone rather than email.

I can't even begin to articulate just how amazing Polly is and the wonderful work she did for my wedding. Everything was flawless and she created an atmosphere in both the chapel and the reception venue more beautiful than I had imagined possible.

I didn't know much about flowers and was planning my wedding from a distance, but Polly took the time to thoroughly go through my likes and dislikes to create a vision for the day. She was very prompt in returning messages and ensured no decor details were forgotten. I felt so comfortable with her work that I even asked her to do what she thought was best as my wedding got closer and a few changes were needed. I couldn't have been happier with the bouquets, the centerpieces, and all her other touches here and there.

I strongly recommend Polly to any bride! She is a wonderful person and an equally talented florist.

Working with Polly was so amazing. She is the most talented florist I have ever seen. The flowers and the decorations far exceeded any expectations I had. We had our wedding at Willow Harbor Vineyard and Polly made everything so perfect. Not only was she great to work with, she was incredibly easy to work with. Her creativity blew my mind.

Polly, thank you for being so wonderful!

Polly is an AMAZING florist. I absolutely loved my bouquet as well as every centerpiece she did. I do not live in the South Bend area nor was I very knowledgeable about flowers. I knew what I wanted the room to look and feel like and Polly made that happen. It was very difficult planning a wedding from out of town so I really had to trust my vendors. Polly not only has style but she is very reasonably priced. My only complaint is that it was a little hard to get ahold of her when I had questions. She did tell me that she has to give her full attention to the weddings she has coming up so her responses can be delayed.

Overall HIGHLY recommend especially is you are like me and just want someone who can come in, match colors, and make your reception look fabulous.

Polly was such a delight to work with on the flowers for my daughter's wedding. The receptions hall looked amazing with just the right mixture of beautiful flowers and candles. The reception was in the Grand Hall at the Century Center. She had the perfect vision on placement of the flowers in the tall clear glass vases with dangling crystals. Stunning!! Polly will go above and beyond to make your day perfect.

Polly is an absolutely amazing florist and definitely went above and beyond our expectations. Polly provided direction, guidance and her expert opinion to make sure that everything was exactly how we wanted it to be. She was never pushy or made us feel that we were required to go with an idea even if it didn’t fit in our vision. On several occasions, she took the time to meet with us to make sure everyone was on the same page and offer any new ideas that she had to make our flower selection even better. Everything was absolutely perfect from the bridal boutique to the center pieces to the cake topper. Her team even helped us set up our candy bar, which turned out to be a highlight of the night. At the end of the night, our guests were “fighting” over who would take home the blooms. I would highly recommend Poppies to any bride. Polly truly went above and beyond our expectations and made our vision a reality!

Polly was truly amazing!!! I first saw her flowers on a table for a gift shop at a bridal show and asked about them - they were the most beautiful flowers I had ever seen. I was told about Polly and then sought her out at another upcoming bridal show where her flowers were even more beautiful! She works out of her house after years of managing a local flower and greenhouse so her costs are way less than what you'd pay for her services if she was still working at a florist. Polly goes above and beyond on everything that she creates and is so much fun to work with. She was just as excited to do the flowers for our wedding as I was about the wedding. She added many extra details that were a surprise to me that day. She added her opinion and helped guide me on things but was never pushy or overbearing. It truly was a pleasure to work with her! I heard rave reviews of our flowers the entire event and still hear them from guests. I have been repeatedly asked who did our flowers and I have proudly recommended Polly to all of them!
