Deb was the florist for my wedding. The quality of her work was exceptional. She was very flexible around my budget, even suggesting that I rent and return some of the centerpieces to help meet my budget. The day of the wedding, the flowers and succulents that she provided were beautiful! Highly recommended.

I'm removing one star for slight disorganization. They charged my card for the deposit 3 times - and while they did refund the money, it was a little jarring for that to be our first transaction. In addition, there was some confusion about the number of centerpieces I wanted, even though I had both called and emailed to confirm - Deb ended up calling me and asking me again. At the end of the day, I'm glad she called and was concerned about getting it right, but I also hate to repeat myself when I've been very clear.

Also, they accept only cash or cashier's check for the final payment, which is very inconvenient for customers who live far away (me!). Don't we live in a world where credit cards are acceptable?

We used Deb as our wedding florist and I cannot say enough wonderful things about her. She went above and beyond to make our wedding ceremony and reception look absolutely STUNNING! She was such a pleasure to work with, has impeccable taste, is such a hard worker, and really has a passion for what she does. I would recommend her and Romance etc to anyone, amazing work. Thank you so much again Deb for everything! Oh and aside from just flowers Romance etc is such a great store I could spend hours in there and buy everything, such a special place!

Awesome gift shop - candles, jewelry, perfume, and tons more! I love getting thank you and hostess gifts here.

But I'm really here to talk about wedding flowers. :-) I love Deb and I will be forever grateful to her for making our wedding absolutely GORGEOUS. I don't know much about flowers. I'm not very good at articulating what I do and don't want. But none of that mattered because Deborah is so awesome at what she does, she asked me all the right questions and came up with honestly, the coolest centerpieces and bouquet I've ever seen. Tons of guests asked me if they could take the centerpieces home and they all wanted to know who provided the flowers.

Deb is one of the hardest working people I know. She communicated with me over and over again to make sure we were on the same page and all logistics (e.g., transporting flowers from our church to the reception site) were handled properly. This might sound minor but I also really appreciated the reminders from her regarding balances due and other details because it was overwhelming to me, dealing with so many different vendors. Every vendor has a different set of rules, different dates by which balances are due, etc. and so I really liked being reminded from their end, what they needed from me.

Thank you Deb, and Romance Etc. You made our wedding the best looking one ever!!! We loved it. You guys rock!

Romance Etc was our wedding florist. They went above and beyond what we envisioned! Our planner brought us to Deb ONE MONTH before our wedding after our first florist disappointed us. Our planner and Deb had discussed before our meeting exactly what our ideas were for our color scheme and our centerpieces (submerged calla lilies). When we first showed up at their store, Deb had already arranged a sample centerpiece that completely blew us away! And just like that, we knew we had found our florist! The sample centerpiece had these specific acrylic vase fillers that were so unique and we just had to have. They were samples from many years ago and at that time we weren’t sure if they were available anymore, but Deb specifically went out of her way to help us find enough for our wedding. We wanted beautiful, bountiful and colorful flowers for our bouquet and Deb knew exactly what we wanted after talking for only a few minutes. While we were there she gathered up the flowers that fit our description and basically explained exactly what she would do. We left there confident knowing that they got it. Even though we knew they would do a good job, we were not prepared for the wonderful surprise that awaited us on our wedding day. The flowers came and they were beautiful, fresh, lush, and more than we could have asked for. The colors, design…everything was spot on! At the venue, we saw the centerpieces and were again blown away at the simplicity, and how artfully the piece was arranged. Deb and her family were all extremely friendly and easy to talk to and work with. We are so grateful that they were able to take on our wedding on such short notice and with such diligence.

Deborah at Romance etc... was a completely amazing find. I knew somewhat what I wanted but Deborah really took it over the top to someting more than I could have hoped for. I appreciated her confidence and ability to expand on my ideas very quickly. She was able to combine my favorite elements into elegant wedding displays that included both succulents and feathers! I would recommend her to any and everyone.

The flowers that Deborah provided were really beautiful, and they were delivered on time, always a plus. I wish I could rate Romance Etc a "5" but I found them difficult to work with and I'm sorry to say unprofessional in their attitude and at times disrespectful in their customer relations, which created a very very high level of stress for us before our wedding. If you can overlook this, then yes I could recommend them based on final product, beautiful flower arrangements.

Deborah was very creative and in tune with the look and feel we wanted for the wedding. We established a fee early on and she kept to it. We liked that Romance Etc. was eager to "think out of the box" and provide something that filled our vision, in addition to making suggestions that went along with our ideas.

Deborah and Romance Etc. did a phenomenal job with our flowers and bouquets. Not only was she completely flexible and responsive, but they were a great joy to work with. My mom had some high-end requests and expectations and Deb managed her perfectly (so that I didn't have to!). Ultimately she blew us all away by the quality of the flowers, centerpieces and bouquets and everyone thought the flowers were just gorgeous!
