Pupa's quality of work is excellent. I appreciated the way she offered her professional expertise and suggestions regarding details I would did not have any knowledge of as a first time bride. I also appreciated the way she suggested the repurposing of flowers from the ceremony to the reception in order to save money. Pupa also provided a sweetheart table to us when we discovered that the venue did not have one.

There were, however, a couple of things for my wedding that did not go as planned. I lost my mother a few years ago, and commemorating my mother's memory during my ceremony was a very important factor in . I had requested a single flower to have to place in the seat where my mother would have sat. That was not provided. I had also given Pupa a photo charm of my mother to be placed on my bouquet. The charm was never placed on the bouquet nor did I receive it back from her. I was also not given a toss bouquet that I was previously told would be complimentary. Pupa had become ill a week or two leading up to my wedding and her illness could have played a factor in things not going through as planned, but it would have been nice to have received a follow up email or phone call from her providing an explanation, but that has not happened as of yet. If I had to provide some advice to a bride or couple considering using Pupa, I would recommend documenting all conversations in writing and thoroughly following through on checking the accuracy of all details.

When I first met Pupa I felt great about the flower ideas and choices we had decided upon for our wedding. She had some great ideas. A few months went by and then I was checking with all the vendors a couple weeks before our wedding, and I am so happy I did. Pupa wrote back with the list of specific flowers she would be using after I asked her for the list and most of the flower and colors were all wrong. So I freaked out a little. But then we went over them a few times and I thought she had it right. The day of the wedding the reception flowers were beautiful really truly beautiful but my bouquet was a little wilted or browning (she probably made it the day before) but it wasn't enough to freak out about. But then all the coursages for the women were on pins instead of on hand bands, so our wedidng coordinator had to scramble to try to find some band so Pupa could fix it. Then the flowers for the Virgin Mary were not delivered to the church so then the organist had to scramble to make us a bouquet ( I found that out from my husband after the wedding). Apparently there was a bouqet but it was left at the hotel. So all in all Pupa has good prices and does not charge for set up and really does make pretty arrangments but I am not sure I would refer her because of the hassel that I went through. People can say none of those things were big mistakes but it depends of what kind of personality you have. I wanted things to be perfect. In the end it didn't make or break our wedding but I would have rather not had the stress.

My wedding was in Sep (2012)...with the exception of my photographer..EVERYTHING went really well. All my caterers did a fabulous job...with that said though....PUPA by FAR was the BEST decision I could EVER have made for my wedding. From day one, she was sooo wonderful to work with. Willing to change things here and there...and definitely willing to work within my budget. I am not well versed in flowers...so what I ended up doign was telling her the amount I wanted to spend and gave her the general color scheme I wanted...and to this day, that was the best decision I made for my wedding. Not JUST that I picked Pupa, but that I gave her the ability to do whatever she felt she could do withing my budget and the space that I chose (Willard hotel). The morning I walked in and saw the ceremony room...I was so overwhelmed and thankful. She seriously went ABOVE and beyond..SEVERAL people came up to me asking who did my flowers and how much I paid for it becauase it was out of this world! She added all these nice touches taht I never even asked her to do! She is a genius!

To put into perspective. I cried three times on the day of my wedding...once during the ceremony bc of how lucky i felt marryign my best friend...the other while dancing w/ my dad...and the other time was when i walked in to see the room set up for the reception bc I could NOT believe what an incredible job pupa did! There you have it..that should say something! and beleive me...I am not one of those flower people..it was just the entire ambience she created with the incredible arrangments and candles.

Pupa...if you're reading this...this is Nora (and Andy) - wedding at Willard on 2 Sep...my flowers went above and beyond. I know you know this...because of how many times I hugged you that day! Thank you for making our special day so perfect!

When I first started thinking about flowers I didn't know where to start. My wedding vendor recommended Pupa to me. I checked out a couple of florist, but when I met Pupa I got a sense that she actually cared about seeing my vision come true. Pupa was very responsive and knew exactly who I was when I would call her which gave me great comfort.

She helped me every step of the way and even offered advice about how to tie all the things I needed together such as napkin color etc. She helped me pick the perfect flowers, centerpieces, and cermony decor.

The morning of my wedding Pupa dropped off our bridesmaid and groomsmen flowers at the hotel, and I must say on-time. The flowers were gorgeous and the perfect size bouquets.

When I got to the cermony and saw what I wonderful job she did with the aisle flowers, pillars, and drape I was amazed... It was so beautifully done. Once the ceremony was over, I went to the reception hall before my guest arrived and was totaly blown away by the remarkable job she had done. It was everything I had hoped for and more. It was much pretty than I ever imaged. People were talking about our flower arrangements and decorations for weeks. One person even said it looked like a wedding made for tv - Thanks to Pupa.

I have since recommended 4 people that have decided to go with Pupa's services. Selecting Pupa was 100% one of the best decisions I made.

I strongly believe that if any bride plans a wedding without the help of Pupa and her services, is absolutely CRAZY!!! Pupa was an ANGEL!

I remember attending the Washington Bridal Showcase with my mom and seeing so many vendors. We saw some gorgeous flowers but out of all the vendors, Pupa's booth struck me the most. She had a gorgeous tall centerpiece display with hanging crystals. It was my dream to have tall centerpieces for my wedding but I was discouraged, thinking I couldn't afford it. I remember looking at Pupa's booth in complete awe yet feeling sad that I wouldn't be able to afford her services. Her worked looked so expensive. I worked up the courage to talk to her and got her information. I remember being happy if I could have her just do my centerpieces. We I went to meet with her, she was so kind, warm, and friendly. The beautiful thing was how much she cared about making my event special. Many vendors are concerned about the money. I told Pupa my budget and she was willing to work with me and I ended up getting my dream centerpieces. Tall flower arangements with the hanging crystals! On the day of my wedding, Pupa and her husband arrived ON TIME and their work exceeded my expectations! I couldn't stop staring at the ballroom. I receieved so many compliments and so many believe told me that they had never witnessed a fairy tale wedding. I too, had a "My Fair Wedding" moment. Pupa's color choices were so beautiful. Another thing I loved about Pupa and her husband is that they do complimentary delivery, set-up, and breakdown. When I was researching other vendors, the delivery charges alone were so expensive BUT with Pupa, I was actually able to spend more money on more flowers because ofthe complimentary set-up and delivery. I could not have been happier.

Pupa, if you are reading this... THANK YOU!!! I wish I was planning another wedding or had another excuse to use your services. I wish I could give you a huge hug and whenever I need another florist for any reason, you are at the top of my list. Thank you for your warm smile, kind heart, and for making my wedding dreams come true. I will miss working with you. My hope and prayer is that your business and talent with sky rocket and go farther than you imagine, because you know how to work with people and make dreams come true. THANK YOU PUPA!!!!!! :) (Gina)

Pupa is a Godsend!!! The service was phenomenal. She stayed at her office past business hours as we provided the vision for our wedding. Her design scheme is far above the rest, very modern and chic. We allowed Pupa to express her creativity with all the floral services. She surpassed what we expected incorporating our wedding colors in every detail. The king and queen chairs were the talk of the reception. Everyone came to the table taking our pictures while seated in the chairs. It was a pleasant surprise for our guests; they loved it!!! The centerpieces were exquisite making us feel as if we were royalty. Thank you Pupa for making our dreams come true!!! We highly recommend Pupa Flowers and Weddings for your event!!! Thanks again Pupa!

YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE!

I found most of my vendors through reviews at wedding wire and all had 4.5 stars and up. I knew I was going to be in good hands when dealing with all of my vendors based on the reviews that other brides had written. With this particular vendor, I was impresed at our first meeting. I was certain that she knew what I wanted and the vision I had...at least thats what I thought up until the wedding day....

The day of...
We had agreed that she would drop off my bouquet at the hotel before setting up at the church. A half hour past the time she was suppose to be there, I decided to call her to see why she was running a little late. When she answered the phone all I heard was "oh my god! oh my god! oh my god!" and I'm thinking is she ok? did something bad happen? Not able to talk she put her husband on the phone and he broke the news that she had thought that the wedding was the NEXT DAY....ON EASTER?? are you KIDDING ME!!!! i dropped the phone from disbelief...my WORST NIGHTMARE was happening to me....ON MY WEDDING DAY!!!

What makes this vendor even more disappointing was how things were handled after the wedding. Every girl envisions their wedding to be the most perfect day of their life. Pupa even promoted that they only commit to one wedding at a time to assure their clients be given their full value and attention. A few days after the wedding, I had contacted Pupa to negotiate a deal with them since mainly half of what was on my invoice was either missing or incomplete. Pupa was not cooperative which I was completely shock over, at one point Pupa herself was yelling at me. Because she was impossible to talk to I decided to email her, discussing further about negotiating a reimbursement on items there were either missing or incomplete from my invoice. I have never experience such poor disregard for their customers. They are in a business where success depends on customer satisfaction. The way Pupa handled this situation was completely unprofessional.

YOUR WORST NIGHTMARE!

I found most of my vendors through reviews at wedding wire and all had 4.5 stars and up. I knew I was going to be in good hands when dealing with all of my vendors based on the reviews that other brides had written. With this particular vendor, I was impresed at our first meeting. I was certain that she knew what I wanted and the vision I had...at least thats what I thought up until the wedding day....

The day of...
We had agreed that she would drop off my bouquet at the hotel before setting up at the church. A half hour past the time she was suppose to be there, I decided to call her to see why she was running a little late. When she answered the phone all I heard was "oh my god! oh my god! oh my god!" and I'm thinking is she ok? did something bad happen? Not able to talk she put her husband on the phone and he broke the news that she had thought that the wedding was the NEXT DAY....ON EASTER?? are you KIDDING ME!!!! i dropped the phone from disbelief...my WORST NIGHTMARE was happening to me....ON MY WEDDING DAY!!!

What makes this vendor even more disappointing was how things were handled after the wedding. Every girl envisions their wedding to be the most perfect day of their life. Pupa even promoted that they only commit to one wedding at a time to assure their clients be given their full value and attention. A few days after the wedding, I had contacted Pupa to negotiate a deal with them since mainly half of what was on my invoice was either missing or incomplete. Pupa was not cooperative which I was completely shock over, at one point Pupa herself was yelling at me.

Pupa,
As you know, we found you late in our planning, but you were gracious and so professional at every level. Your creative ideas were marvelous and you almost knew what I wanted before I completed a thought! I thank you for your flexible spirit and patience with me.

The decorations at the church were absolutely beautiful and our guests are still calling us and telling us how lovely your work was. The reception was equally as fabulous! You helped to make the event a success!
Thank You,

I can't thank Pupa and her husband enough for what they did! I cannot put into words how beautiful everything turned out. I received so many compliments on the floral arrangements for the centerpieces at my reception. Literally almost ALL of the floral arrangements were taken by our family and other guests. I honestly felt like a "My Fair Wedding" moment during the reveal, LOLOL. I gave Pupa the color scheme of my wedding and she took all the worries out of my hands and MORE THAN DELIVERED. They key with her is that she really loves what she does and I felt she really wanted us to be happy. It wasn't about the money but her work is amazing and is worth every penny. She deserves so much praise for being that type of person. So I would adivse anyone on the fence about looking for a florist to please go with Pupa and her husband.

Pupa is great to work with! She listened to what we wanted and exceeded our expectations in every possible way. From the first time we met with her to the day of the wedding, we felt that we were in good hands. Her creativity and quality of work is what makes Pupa stand out from other vendors.

Quality of Service: From the first meeting to the end of our wedding, Pupa provided us with all the information we needed to make our decision effectively regarding decorations and rentals. She made it a point to learn about our venue and how she can make our day perfect. The best moment for me was seeing my husband in awe of the decorations when we first walked in for our reception.

Responsiveness: Pupa was always available to answer our questions and address our concerns in a timely manner. She was always pleasant and professional in addressing our concerns.

Flexibility: Pupa has been great in working with us through our indecisive moments. She met with us when we could and always with a smile. Because of her years of experience in the industry, she understood what we were going through.

If you are looking for someone who can capture your idea of what your wedding decoration should be, Pupa is your gal. Allow her creativity to shine and you won’t be disappointed.

If it were possible to rate Pupa with ONE THOUSAND stars, I would! Pupa is one of the kindest and warmest individuals you could ever hope to meet (a rarity in the world of wedding planning). She sat with me and patiently helped me plan a cohesive vision of an absolutely stunning wedding from the fragmented and uninformed ideas I originally brought to her. I put the decor into Pupa's hands and never looked back and I would do it again in a heartbeat.

Let me start by saying that I brought a unique challenge to Pupa. I had a total of 12 bridesmaids (all wearing black) and 11 groomsmen, not to mention parents who needed corsages and boutonnieres and a seven-month-old flower girl. I knew that I wanted a variety of colors for the bouquets to break up the black and white theme, but I truly didn't have a vision for how to make it all come together. Pupa helped me plan 6 different bouquets with corresponding flower hairpins. At my request, she customized the ribbons on the bouquets to distinguish between the maids of honor and the other bridesmaids. She also helped me to put together custom centerpieces which complemented the venue's colors. She consistently pointed out the practical side of the plan, but emphasized that she wanted to make my day exactly what I had hoped for and would do whatever it took to follow through. For example, I wanted to have additional flowers on our cake table (we had a variety of Georgetown Cupcakes in lieu of a wedding cake), but Pupa suggested that we use the bridesmaids bouquets as decor on the dessert table instead. She had beautiful vases waiting on the table when we entered the reception and the bridesmaids were able to place the bouquets in the vases instead of lugging them around and leaving them to wilt throughout the night. Her advice not only saved us money, but resulted in a colorful and attractive dessert display. In addition, my bouquet was absolutely stunning and very unexpectedly brought tears to my eyes as well as my father's. Pupa incorporated roses from my father's garden at my request and managed to make them the focus of the beautiful white bouquet.

A week before the wedding, I frantically contacted Pupa to ask if she could add a chuppah to the package. My husband and I had an interfaith wedding and our chuppah plans had fallen through at the last minute. Pupa told me not to worry and that it would be all set up when we arrived at the ceremony. Not only was the chuppah visually stunning, Pupa decorated the sides and top with beautiful flowers which matched the previously planned centerpieces. She even went so far as to place beautiful arrangements at the end of the aisle.

Pupa even went so far as to tour the venue in advance so that she would be prepared for set-up on the day of the wedding. She stayed through the ceremony to change over the room for the reception during the cocktail hour. I barely had time to find her and give her a huge hug for making the day so special. I never thought I would have such a beautiful wedding, but she knew how to make it as such and in such a seamless way.

I cannot tell you how many compliments my husband and I received regarding the flowers at our wedding. I can honestly say that it was Pupa's eye for artistry and organization that took this bride's breath away when I walked down the aisle and when I entered the reception. I don't see how you could possibly find a better florist than Pupa since she is clearly a one-of-a-kind talent. She told me at our initial meeting, "I love what I do." It shows in her tireless work and artistry.

I highly highly HIGHLY recommend Pupa Flowers for any event dealing with rentals, flowers and overall planning. Pupa and her team went above and beyond to make my wedding day everything I ever dreamt of. She not only helped me with every small detail, but she listened to my needs, and cared about the event as though it were her own. There were many late night phone calls, Sunday meetings, dealing with in-laws, and the list goes on, yet she remained by my side through it all. I not only found the best wedding planner ever but a guardian angel in Pupa.
The best part of all was her Creativity; she can put any color scheme together and form a unique blend of beauty. She can change a disaster into a spectacular view. Our wedding was meant for 600 people, and yet over 1,000 guests came. I still don’t know what kind of magic she pulled off, but whatever it was, it WORKED. Our wedding was simply the most beautiful event, with no known flaws.
All in all, she is truly the BEST of the BEST!!!

Pupa Flowers was very impressive. Pupa is such a professional and "can do" person with great style, creativity and upbeat personality! I have worked on other projects with her and the variety of high-end linens, chair covers & the creative flower arrangements were incredible and beyond our expectation. The centerpieces were magnificent, the reception simply glowed. She really knows how to make specific colors and layers work together and display elegant ambiance in a space. Our guests complimented the flowers the entire evening. Again, thank you for making it a memorable occasion. I'm looking forward to working with her in many upcoming events and projects and can't recommend “Pupa Flowers “enough to your event!

She didnt think twice when I asked her to attend a meeting across town with my coordinator and caterer to finalize things, she was there and really put me at ease that she would be able to make it all happen. I was able to express my floral designs and show her pictures and she executed them to my satisfaction. My wedding day decor and flowers were exactly what I had invisioned and people are still talking about how beautiful our flowers, the reception decor/linens and center pieces were. Pupa and her team did a beautiful job and I cant thank them enough for helping to make our day special. Whatever you need or want for your wedding and reception, Pupa can deliver.

I would highly recommend Pupa Wedding and Flowers for any event that requires exquisite decor and floral arrangements. I am a very particular individual who always want things done perfectly. Not only did Pupa meet my expectations, she exceeded them! Her excellent service, beautiful floral arrangements, bouquets and corsages for the wedding party left me and the guests speechless; she went well beyond the call of duty. She went to the wedding venue prior to the wedding and made sample arrangements so we (my wedding coordinator and groom) would have an opportunity to see what the arrangements would look like in the room prior to the wedding (she did this at no extra cost and gave me the arrangement to take home!). She had some fabulous ideas that I never thought of, I accepted everyone of them; and she gave lots of extras (not nickeling and diming you like some vendors I interviewed). My guests that received the floral centerpieces called me a month after the wedding still marveled by the arrangements and some even stated that some of the flowers were still alive. My husband and I are truly satisfied with Pupa and would highly recommend her.

She went to the wedding venue prior to the wedding and made sample arrangements so we (my wedding coordinator and groom) would have an opportunity to see what the arrangements would look like in the room prior to the wedding (she did this at no extra cost and gave me the arrangement to take home!). She had some fabulous ideas that I never thought of, I accepted everyone of them; and she gave lots of extras (not nickeling and diming you like some vendors I interviewed). My guests that received the floral centerpieces called me a month after the wedding still marveled by the arrangements and some even stated that some of the flowers were still alive. My husband and I are truly satisfied with Pupa and would highly recommend her. Read less

Pupa Flowers did a fabulous job decorating and arranging our reception hall with beautiful flowers, lighting, and other colorful decor. She was very easy to work with and provided outstanding customer service. We looked at many vendors before her, and in the end, we wished we had started with her. She provides really good service at a reasonable price. Most importantly, she is reliable and friendly.

I can not give Pupa and her staff enough love and appreciation for the beautiful set up she created for my wedding as well as the flowers for myself and my attendants. Everything went so smoothly from the arrival to break down. She is a pleasure to work with and truly a gifted florist who works with your budget and gives you in my opinion, more than what you pay for. Her creativity is in everything.

I remember seeing her displays at one Bridal Show and my fiance fell so in love with her that I knew she was the one. At another Bridal Show 2 months later I saw her again with her same smile and she remembered me and my fiance...I knew it was fate. Needless to say I booked her before that week was over. We met at her warehouse and I told her my colors, showed her my gown and she went to work creating a model and I was SOLD! She offered models before writing things into stone but I told her to have her way....I did not want to limit her creativity. When I asked her to go out of her way to drop my bouquet off 30 miles in the opposite direction of the wedding ceremony for pre-wedding pictures, she did not ask questions or charge me extra.

I knew Pupa and her staff would come through and she did. Again, the wedding was beautiful. The flowers and decor truly enhanced the venue and made the pictures POP. I would use her again in a heartbeat!

Pupa made our day beautiful! Our colors were red and silver, and Pupa alone had the perfect shade of red for our chair covers. Everyone, from the catering staff to the invited guests agreed that the decor was the best or among the best they had ever seen. It was absolutely stunning. Red Chairs with silver sashes; silver tablecloths; elegant floral arrangements with red roses, berries, and seeded eucalyptus; a romantic cake table with red rose petals; and piping and draped fabric with uplighting for the head table. Not only did Pupa make our day lovely, but she was a pleasure to work with - she listened to our vision, incorporated her magic/ expertise, gave us a sample of how everything would look, and transformed our reception site into a wondorous, romantic, warm, memorable place. I am so thankful I found Pupa, and highly reccommend her to anyone who appreciates beautiful things!

My wedding was such a wonderful, and organized day b/c of pupa belatchew. When I walked to the reception hall, I felt like I was in a movie, so gorgeious and breathtaking decoration with added touches that will WOW you. To this day 3 weeks later I get calls from friends and family asking about the decor, the chairs, the backdrop design, and etc....

Without her my day would not have been possible. I highly recommend her services to anyone. I got much much more than I what I paid for.

I was the maid of honor of my sisters wedding on April 23, 2011 and offered to pay for the flowers as part of my wedding gift to her. First meeting with Pupa was very plesant and seemed that she had everything taken care of, meeting all the needs of my sister (the bride). We left there completly satisfied. On wedding day, we expected Pupa and her team to meet us at the hotel were staying, but to our surpise, she did not show up at the time she specified. We called Pupa to see if everything was okay (but who sounded like she just woke up) and found out that Pupa was not going to show up. Her excuse said was "I thought it was tomorrow". According to the contract which was signed by both the bride and the vendor, the date was correct. It was the vendor who had the mistake in her head. No excuse by my count AT ALL. So ofcourse SOME flowers needed to be at the wedding so I argued that the entourage have their flowers at the church in one hour and the centerpieces be at the reception before doors open. Some flowers on contract did show, HALF. Most of the flowers were not what we expected them to be. Some of the flowers we specifically asked for were missing from the bouquets, MOST did NOT show up, and alot were of different quality and COLOR. I was completly disappointed come wedding day.

The next day, I contacted Pupa (she did not bother to contact us for an apology). She answered the phone like nothing was wrong and she was NOT apologetic. She did not apologize at any time and became DEFENSIVE immediately, saying that it was a mistake and that all people make mistakes and that the dates were JUST mixed up. I asked for a full refund (which I STILL feel was the right thing to do) and she said definitely NOT and will only provide for what flowers did not show up even though the ones that DID show up were not what was discussed and written on contract. She did not seem to care that most of the flowers were not what we ordered, some were in a COMPLETLY different color (and by different I mean, boutinerres were supposed to be lavender and showed up white). I even provided a spreadsheet of all flowers and which EXACTLY were not correct, and still she did not bother to take it into account. After a couple weeks of arguing, trying to prove that I should be reimbursed for what was not correct AND what did not show, she still refused and only reimbursed for what did not show. She did not care that the ONE DAY my sister had planned her whole life was not as she expected it to be, because of her.

My overall review is that on intial meeting, she is very professional and seemed to have taken all the brides wished into consideration. After she cashes your check, she is a different person. VERY unprofessional. She did not care that she almost ruined my sisters wedding day. She single-handedly brought upon stress, tears and anger that should no one should have before they walk down the isle, with NO remorse.

As I agree that her quality of work is BEAUTIFUL when planned out correctly with enough time, but I would not risk that fact that she FORGOT/MISTAKEN my sisters wedding day. And I would DEFINITELY NOT recommend her.
