Linda was truly exceptional! She was extremely patient as I got pricing on pretty much every centerpiece she offered! She transformed my venue into something more beautiful than I could of imagined! She listened to my needs and truly exceeded my expectations. I would recommend Linda to everybody!

Shamrock Garden did the flowers (bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages) for my wedding and they turned out beautiful! The process was very easy - I met with the florist twice, let her know my colors and what type of flowers I wanted, and when I saw the final product I could not have been happier!

I worked with Linda for my wedding and the flowers were amazing. At our initial meeting she was very open to talking about what my vision was for my wedding. She gathered all the information she needed and said to come back in a few months to talk more about the wedding details without my husband being there. When I followed up, it was clear at the end of our second meeting that it was pointless for me to make this second trip up there. We went through the same information from our first meeting and she did not ask any new questions. When I left she said she would call me 2 weeks before the wedding to confirm everything and give me the final total for payment. When the 2 weeks before my wedding came, she did not call. I had to call the store 3 times and ask to speak with her. Each time someone new answered and said that Linda would get a hold of me, she did not. The fourth time I called I explained my wedding was 5 days away. A new lady said to come in, someone would be there to process my order. She said they would be open until 5:30. When I arrived there that night at 5:10, a delivery man told me that everyone left. FInally, four days before my wedding Linda called to confirm my order and give me the total I would owe her. She was not apologetic for her tardiness in returning my phone calls. The florist was the most stressful part of the wedding planning, all because they did not return my 5 phone calls. Other than this the flowers were amazing and I could not have asked for anything more. If you choose this florist and happen to work with Linda, make sure you stay on her to make sure your order gets done.

Shamrock Garden Florist was who I went through to get my bridal bouquet. I brought in a picture of exactly what I wanted, and what I got only partially reflected the picture. I brought in a picture of orange lilies, pink roses, baby's breath, and ferns. What I got was pink roses, red carnations, 2 orange lilies, 2 lilies that were completely closed up, and some other type of red flower and a green leaf that kind of looked like ivy. It was still very pretty, but it is not what I really wanted. When I walked in, I wasn't greeted right away. One employee asked what I needed help with and didn't respond when I told her; she just went and got another employee. The second lady I worked with was very pleasant and explained everything to me. They told me they would be able to make a bouquet that looked like the one in the picture, but that was never really achieved. If you want to use this vendor, just be aware you may not get exactly what you want.

This is a review of their Riverside location... We had a great experience with Shamrock from day 1. They were quite a bit less expensive than other vendors we found, but that did not show in the final product. I wanted a nontraditional bouquet with succulents and a wide variety of flowers. Gaye, the staff member I interacted with most, was able to create something more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed. We wanted to keep centerpieces on the smaller and less expensive side, so I gave Gaye a price point and she created a simple and elegant design. We have a great experience with Shamrock and have already referred a friend to them, who was also so impressed she will be using them next month at her wedding.

My daughter was married in November 2013 and she chose Shamrock Florist for her flowers. Shamrock was highly recommended by several of her friends who had previously used them for their weddings. The first meeting we had with Linda went extremely well, as she was very professional and knowledgable and helped my daughter add final touches to her "vision."
The wedding was at the Willis Tower in Chicago. Linda said she had been there several times before and was comfortable with how to manage the delivery & set up. I knew we were in good hands! The end result was just beautiful! Linda showed up at the hotel hours before the wedding and dropped off all the bridal party flowers and then delivered with no problems to the Metropolitan Club at Willis. Shamrock Florist will always be our go to Florist!

I contacted Shamrock gardens as my reception hall contracts with them. I received free basic centerpieces when booking through my reception hall. I felt as though I was treated in such a way that the florist "knew she was going to get my business." I felt as though she was very unorganized and annoyed during all of our meetings. She clearly did not prepare for meetings and would recall incorrect information from previous meetings. The earliest I could meet with her was at 5pm on the week days because of my work schedule. She clearly did not want to be there that late and could not get the meeting over with fast enough to leave for the day. When I would call to discuss details she would not remember who I was. At the initial meeting she quoted me a price and promised it would never go up from there. I ended up paying $300 more than she quoted me.
In the end the flowers were beautiful and the delivery of services was fantastic. I cannot say enough about how nice the floral arrangements ended up being. The bouquets that the bridal party carried were gorgeous and I received several compliments on how beautiful the flowers were. They truly were great!
I would recommend the final product to anyone however the service received was very frustrating.

We used Shamrock Garden for our flowers for our wedding on October 26, 2013. Linda was so great. We met with her months before the wedding and she is so great at her job. Just by talking with her, she picked up on exactly what I wanted. I didn't even really have to show her pictures, it was like she could read my mind! She was so insightful and very invested in our wedding. She called me the week of the wedding to go over everything and confirm delivery. I brought her my unity candle set and she made a floral arrangement to go around it. I also took her a memorial charm that my aunt gave me and she put it on my bouquet. The bouquets were so beautiful and exactly what I wanted! She made a stunning basket of flowers for my flower girl. The guys boutonniere were beautiful. She made color coordinated corsages for our parents and beautifully presented the roses for our family. I was so impressed by her work and recommend her to everyone I know! Her prices are unbeatable and the quality of her work is outstanding!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Shamrock Garden and the floral arrangements Linda and team provided for our recent October wedding.

We got married at Wilder Mansion, an historical landmark in Elmhurst. Linda worked with me and my vision for what I wanted the venue to look and feel like, offering her expertise and keen intuition to create the picture perfect, dream wedding I had imagined.

Although I was nervous about how everything would turn out the day of, I can confidently say I was blown away by what an incredible job Linda and her team did with our flowers. From the gorgeous bouquets and boutonnieres to the breathtaking centerpieces, everything was absolutely perfect. The mansion has many different rooms with several mantles, for which Linda provided stunning mantlescapes.

Linda came to the mansion several times that day to check on everything and make sure everything went accordingly to plan and no detail was missed. I could not give a higher recommendation for Shamrock Garden and their service.

I met with Linda with an idea in my mind of what I wanted. She didn't have the flowers that I had pictured in my head so she offered to dye some flowers in order to make my vision a reality. I was not disappointed. I was a little worried because I wasn't quite sure what I'd be getting, but I knew she knew what she was doing and my flowers were beyond beautiful. My alter arrangements for the ceremony made the church, way beyond my expectations. She was very accommodating and was able to use the vases for centerpieces I had made myself. I came upon Shamrock Garden because they are the florist that my banquet hall uses and I understand why.

Shamrock Garden Florist truly exceeded my expectations in providing the flowers for my wedding day. They were so willing to work with me to design my bouquets, centerpieces, etc., and they worked very hard to make sure that everything was exactly how I wanted it. They truly made me feel truly valued! And when I was finally able to see the flowers on my wedding day I was simply blown away! The bouquets, aisle decorations, centerpieces, and all were simply exquisite. Shamrock remembered every little detail I had requested, and they set up everything for me in the necessary locations. I didn't have to worry about a thing the whole day, and I was just so impressed! I would gladly recommend Shamrock Garden Florist to any bride and groom!

Shamrock went above and beyond for our wedding. I went into the consultation with no idea what I wanted. I thought I did a poor job communicating what I wanted but when the flowers showed up the day of the wedding it was like they read my mind. I wanted red and cream roses for my bouquet and a big champagne colored bow tied around the stems. Weird request, I know. We wanted the feel of the wedding to be vintage 1920s so they offered to add Ostrich feathers to all piece. They looked WONDERFUL!! It gave the exact feel I was looking for. I absolutely love it. I also had a weird request for the bridesmaids' bouquets. I didn't want the typical round ball of roses, instead a textured mix of some sort of flowers that look nice. (See, bad communication) The bouquets they made for my girls were unreal. They again were able to read my mind and gave me something absolutely beautiful. The people at Shamrock are spectacular are their jobs. They were friendly, open for my insanity, and delivered the most perfect flowers I could have asked for. AND on top of it all, they were soooo reasonably priced.

In the beginning I was in a panick about a florist. I called a florist I was referred to in Wheaton, Illinois and the woman on the phone was very rude and basically let me know my wedding was too small scale for them and I was crazy to think florists wouldn't already be booked if I gave them less than 12 months. Another friend recommended Shamrock Gardens and I was leary given my first florist experience but they made up for that and then some! I met with Linda when I walked in and when I went to tell her my budget she asked me not to, she wanted to go through what I wanted and see if the number she came up with would fall inline with my budget. IT DID!! She certainly knows her business. She gave me great suggestions and options and was very flexible with what I wanted to do. I told her the colors I wanted were the colors in the pallet of a peacock feather and I wanted the bouquets to be "rustic" and "earthy." I admit I was nevous about just hoping she knew what I meant and not being able to see them until the very wedding day.......but ALL of the flowers were PERFECT! She particularly hit the ball out of the ballpark with my bouquet...sooooo beautiful and rustic and earthy.....colors were perfection....I was actually sad to have to hang it to let it dry. Many people commented on the beautifull, deep, rich colors of the bouquets. Of the amateur photos I've seen the colors just show wonderfully on camera!! I will certainly be using Shamrock in the future and would recommend them to any bride on any budget!

She particularly hit the ball out of the ballpark with my bouquet...sooooo beautiful and rustic and earthy.....colors were perfection....I was actually sad to have to hang it to let it dry. Many people commented on the beautifull, deep, rich colors of the bouquets. Of the amateur photos I've seen the colors just show wonderfully on camera!! I will certainly be using Shamrock in the future and would recommend them to any bride on any budget! Read less

I had my flowers through Shamrock for my October wedding at the Danada House. I had to go with them because of the plan I chose with Maries Catering. I was VERY pleased overall with all the work they did and how gorgeous my flowers turned out. I wouldn't have changed any of the settings they created for me. The only complaint I have it their pricing. I think they are on the high end compared to other vendors. If you want to spend a little more, but get amazing looking flowers... I would recommend them!

After I told the agent what the decor would look like, she immediately came up with any and all possible options and knew the venue inside and out. Even taking all possible options I was impressed at the end price, which was way below my budget. I would definitely use this vendor again.

I loved working with Linda! I went to 3 other florists before I booked with Shamrock and I booked the day I met her!!! Every other florist I went to didn't get what I wanted in my flowers... they kept trying to change my mind. Linda just got it! I spoke to her for 15 min about what I wanted and she said she would be right back- she brought out a BEAUTIFUL bouquet and I just knew she was my florist! My flowers were beautiful on my wedding day and very original.

BUT we had 2 issues with the ceremony piece/headpiece at Abbington not being as long as we discussed and the aisle was never aligned with flower petals... I contacted Linda about it and was told that "nothing could be done and I got the value in the headtable/ceremony flowers" (we used them at both)- that was very disappointing because we paid a lot extra ( the Abbington includes a head table piece at no charge) and in cash and didn't get what we asked for. The flowers were pretty but they were only 3-4 ft long and we paid for 8 ft long.... I was told that a lady dropped off the flower petals and my ceremony said we couldn't have them there? but yet nothing was communicated to us- INFACT no one ever brought the flowers to us... my bridal party said they just dropped them off (they found our bouquets outside in front of the house) and left- when you pay for delivery, normally they give the items to you? I even provided them with a layout of the Redfield Estate beforehand... I really wish we could have ended on better terms... all I wanted is to be refunded on what wasn't done- the ceremony/headtable piece was smaller than in my contract and the aisle was never aligned with flower petals ( i expect to pay for the petals but not labor that wasn't done). MAKE SURE YOU GET EVERYTHING IN WRITING AND DON'T PAY IN CASH.

I also had a floating candle in a tall vase with a flower in it and it looked simple but so romantic and elegant. They were friendly and made great suggestions.

Shamrock Gardens did an absolutely amazing job with the flowers for our wedding!! I was totally blown away when the bouquets were delivered to the house. Linda and her team nailed exactly what I wanted both with my bouquet and the bridesmaids. They were perfect! They did it again with the flowers at the reception. Our wedding coordinator took us in the room before anyone got to see it and my mouth literally dropped open. The centerpieces were amazing, the alter pieces were gorgeous, and Linda's idea of putting 3 candle goblets around each table centerpiece made the room so elegant. Shamrock Gardens made our day so very special. They are definitely highly recommended

Shamrock Garden Florist was very professional and easy to work with. All the flowers arrived at exactly when they were asked to be there, the delivery person was wonderful! He showed me all the flowers made sure I was happy with them (of course they more exceptional than I had hoped). He took the boutonnieres to the mens lounge so no one else had to. I was very very pleased with Shamrock Gardens! The centerpieces were awesome and the bouquets beautiful. Thank you Shamrock Gardens!

Linda Trevoy and her team at Shamrock Gardens knocked the cover off the ball with our flowers! I met with 3 other vendors before Linda - she spent an hour and a half with me to find out about my husband, how we met, what we liked, what my style was, what his style was, etc. Through that dialogue, she came up with the most beautiful flower arrangement recommendation for our reception (fresh flowers embedded in a flagstone) - we received sooooo many compliments on them!!!! They were different than anything anyone has ever seen and they were absolutely gorgeous. For my flowers and my girls, I wanted lots of texture - Linda did not disappoint. The hand helds were a work of art and I could not have been more excited / pleased when they were delivered for the photos - absolutely gorgeous!!!! I highly recommend Shamrock Gardens for any event, especially a wedding. I was so impressed at how well Linda captured Chris and my "personalities" through the flowers. Thank you, thank you!!

Married 6.23.12, We were recommended to this florist through our caterer actually. She had recently married and recommended them because she said they were able to work with any budget. I love flowers but didn't want to spend a minimum of $4k which some places required. We spent about $1400 on flowers. Still more than I had intended on spending but well worth it. They were flexible to changes I was making weeks up to the wedding. To say i loved and was amazed by our flowers would be an understatement. They were way more than I had expected and really transformed our venue. We had hanging flower balls from a tree by our ceremony it was breathtaking and amazing to see how it all came together the day of. They really pulled together what I was going for. My bridal bouquet was absolutely gorgeous, I wish dried and kept it! They made centerpieces around lanterns I had purchased from IKEA, I dropped off the lanterns at my venue the day of and once the florist arrived they took them and created beautiful garden centerpieces. I recommend them to anyone no matter how small your budget is they really do work with you! I recommended them to my best friend and she is actually using them for her wedding in December! Can't wait to see their beautiful work again :)

Centerpieces from Shamrock Gardens were included in our package with Abbington Banquets, so we decided to use them for our ceremony flowers also. Their prices are very reasonable and the flowers on the day were very pretty! I worked with Linda, who was the best. I didn't have a whole lot of ideas about flowers, and she helped guide me. For example, originally I wanted blue orchids, but she showed me how the teal blue in the flower didn't really go with the cobalt blue of our BM dresses. I loved that I got to actually see their flowers before buying. We also decided to upgrade our centerpieces, and people told me they were lovely! I docked on responsiveness because they are behind the times--they communicate VERY slowly by email, which is my preferred method of communication because of my work hours. If you call, you will get a response right away though. I also docked on quality of service because of some miscommunication. Please make sure you are very clear about what you want with them. We talked about wanting ceremony flowers, and I thought we had decided everything (we had been in to see them twice to talk about it and they wrote everything down and wrote the amount), but apparently she didn't put it in the system as being final. I called two weeks before my wedding and they didn't have the ceremony flowers in their system, so I almost didn't have flowers! They fixed the mistake, and everything worked out since they hadn't ordered my reception flowers yet, but I almost panicked lol. Overall, their florist is very creative, the flowers are good quality, the prices are perfect, and despite a few bumps everything worked out great.

We chose Abbington Banquets in Glen Ellyn for our ceremony and reception, so Shamrock Gardens came with it and were to provide centerpieces for our wedding reception (I'd made the boutineers and bridesmaids flowers myself). We live over 8 hours away - our first appointment, made with the florist by phone, was for 12:30 on Monday, December 26th. We got there around 12:15 and there was a delivery driver there who told us the store was closed. Thank goodness he was there. He called the owner and she got there at about 12:45. She apologized saying that whoever made the appointment must have forgotten they were closed on Monday. When we got inside she was very frazzled and unorganized, but apologetic and upgraded our ceremony/head table centerpiece free of charge. A few months later I'd made a call to take a few things off our order - changes were made, price was adjusted, no problem. I'd been recieving all my other finalization calls a few weeks before the wedding - it was within 4 days and I'd still heard nothing from Linda, even after calling twice. I was told both times that LINDA was the only one who could finalize orders and that she'd be "calling soon". I finally got ahold of her and she said she'd "been trying to call but couldn't get through." Then, when she verified the phone number on the order, one number was off - she did not apologize, but instead said "OH that must be my dyslexia coming out" Then, after the order had been reviewed, I said "Again I'm really sorry that my number was wrong." Then she said "Don't worry about it." No apology. As far as the actual flowers - our ceremony/head table centerpiece was NOT upgraded and/or did not include white orchids like Linda said it would. The centerpieces were nice, standard. My husbands boutineer and my flowers looked good. Linda and her shop (and employees, I guess) are not very professional or organized. However, I did have some "pretty" flowers, and they arrived on time.

Wow! Shamrock Garden was incredible! Being the flustered bride that I was, I showed up for my appointment at the right time, but 10 days early! The staff at Shamrock Garden understood that I had driven 30 minutes to get there, and realized that brides get a little disorganized sometimes and squeezed me in between someone picking up the flowers for their event, and planning three other events! THANK YOU!!!
We had so many compliments on our flowers and everything was just PERFECT!

Thank you so much for helping us to have our dream wedding!

Shamrock Florist is the recommened vendor for Abbington Distinctive Banquets and their basic centerpieces were included in the contract. I could not have picked a better florist to work with! I really enjoyed working with Linda. We met twice and both times were great experiences. One thing I really respected about Linda was that she was down to earth and told you how it was. She listened to what I thought I wanted and then made it ten times better. When our flowers arrived, I was AMAZED! Linda's vision turned into a beautiful display of colors! I loved every single flower that decorated our day! They tied all of my visions together!

The only thing that I would not recommend is the runner down the aisle. I had told Linda that I didn't want it because I had seen a runner at someone else's wedding get all bunched up and almost make people trip (which was also from Shamrock), but she and my mom convinced me that it would complete the ambiance of the ceremony. I have to say that my gut was right. The aisle runner did bunch up and I was a little nervous walking down the aisle. The priest actually tripped on it. The quality of the runner was not the best and its adhesive did not keep the runner down appropriately. As the priest said though, if that's the only thing that could have gone wrong, then that's pretty good.

Thanks Linda for a great job done!

With the package we had with the vendor there wasa very little to consult with when it came down to picking the centerpieces for our reception. The consultation was short and sweet, which made it particularly easy and everything turned out wonderful! Even if i wanted to "upgrade" anything i think it would have drowned everything else out. Not particularly a huge fan of big centerpieces, so the little ones fit right in, and were elegant. The centerpiece for the sweetheart table was absolutely gorgeous!! We took it home and it was still alive and well when we came back from the honeymoon! lol. outstanding job!

We absolutely loved everything about Shamrock Garden. They are a family owned business that have been around for years, and it shows in their expansive knowledge of flowers. During our first meeting we discussed flowers for the entire day and selected the colors. I have very limited knowledge of flowers, but their examples and photo albums provided so many options. I trusted them and their opinion from the beginning. They knew what they were talking about and what would look best. When I first saw my bridal and bridesmaid bouquets I was stunned at how gorgeous they looked. Our reception hall looked absolutely amazing and we received numerous compliments on our arrangements. I would highly recommend them and their services. They are trustworthy, friendly and knowledgeable. They took the time to get to know us and meet with us (on a few occasions).

Shamrock Gardens was recommended through our venue, Brookfield Zoo, and we decided to use them for ceremony and reception flowers. I was originally planning to do all of the reception decor on my own but, after talking with Linda at Shamrock, was assured that they would be able to work within my budget to create something unique and professional. We met twice to talk about colors, themes, bridal party and attire. When I called to confirm I was shocked that they didn't ask if I wanted to see any arrangements or flowers and I wasn't sure what to expect when the flowers arrived on the wedding day. When I opened the box of bouquets I immediately fell in love and was completely thrilled with what they had come up with. The centerpieces were all really unique as well, and guests were able to take them home at the end of the night. For not knowing what to expect, Shamrock Gardens really exceeded my expectations!

Shamrock Gardens made my dreams come true. Linda is very easy to talk to and she can see your vision after a short talk. After going seeing many florists, it was a relief to finally be at Shamrock Gardens. There was not a doubt in my mind that I made the right choice, and when it came to seeing all the flowers and decorations on the wedding day, it honestly was exactly what I envisioned and more! They are very flexible and have great ideas and advice. I would recommend Shamrock Gardens to every bride, because you cannot go wrong, and your vision will come true! It was one of the best decisions I made!

Shamrock Gardens is the florist used by Abbington Banquets. Our centerpieces were included with our reception package and I just used them to do the bridal party flowers as well, so keep it simple for me and not have to use a lot of different vendors. The basic centerpieces included in our package were more than enough. There are about six different ones to choose from and you can mix and match. So half the tables had red roses in a low square vase, and the other half had red daisies floating in water.

For the bridal party flowers, I really had no vision. The bridesmaid dresses were a red (David's Bridal "Apple", actually), so I just wanted to coordinate with that and uses roses and daisies. Linda was able to take my random ramblings and offer suggestions. My bouquet ended up being all red roses and daisies with white stephanotis flowers with crystals. Beautiful, but heavy to carry, lol. :) The girls bouquets were a mix of red, ivory and pink roses and daisies. The guys bouts were red roses. She did different and coordinating flowers for all of the fathers, mothers and readers. All in all, I was very happy with how the flowers turned out and I think everyone else was as well.

I did not know much about flowers or what I wanted. I just knew I wanted simple and not too fancy or manicured and I had in my mind picked out Queen Annes Lace as a good choice. Linda took control when I needed it and made perfect suggestions and selections, and all at a wonderful price. We kept almost everything and now 2 days after the wedding we have some of the flowers in our house still keeping up pretty well. We would certainly recommend Shamrock.

The people at Shamrock Garden were very friendly and easy to work with. The flowers were delivered on time, but were the wrong color.. they were supposed to be pink and coral, and they arrived pink and purple. They were still very beautiful, but the groom/groomsmen's flowers barely made it through the ceremony. They wilted very quickly.

We couldn't have been happier with all our wedding flowers. Linda excelled herself in producing just what we wanted. She produced a perfect sample centerpiece based on a photo we showed her. On the day the bouquets and everything were bigger and more beautiful than we could have hoped for and all for a very reasonable price. We would not hesitate to recommend Shamrock Gardens Florist.

Linda Trevoy is absolutely amazing!! My friend Brooke who was married last July recommended her and I could not have been happier. Through email I sent Linda pictures of my floral vision for my wedding day and she exceeded my expectations. The floral arrangements we had were definitely worth the money. In fact, I originally thought that they would be way more expensive then they actually were! I must admit that I can be somewhat high maintenance and have pretty high expectations. The floral arrangements (especially the bridesmaid bouquets) were everything that I had dreamed of for my wedding day!!

I would definitely recommend them and I would use them again if I ever need professional flower arrangements.

Shamrock Gardens is the vendor the Abbington deals directly with. One of the packages includes six different cernterpieces in your total cost at the Abbington. Any upgrades are paid by the couple. They had a variety of centerpieces to choose from. Only problem was communication and getting an appointment booked.

Take my advice...don't bother shopping around just go with Shamrock!! I have worked with Shamrock Garden for over 7 years. They used to do all of the floral for my corporate events. In November 2010, I was finally able to use them as my florist for our Wedding. I had a vision of exactly what I wanted and I had many pictures of ideas that I like...I was looking for our room to be "Enchanted" I have to say that Shamrock far exceeded my expectations. Not only were the prices extremely reasonable but I felt I had got more than I had even planned for. I wanted our bouquets to be above normal in the size and to truly be unique. When my flowers got delivered in the morning it was the perfect start to an amazing day.

I spent a lot of time at Bridal Expos and met a lot of florists with many great ideas and for the most part the prices we're much higher than Shamrock. I think the value for the cost is above a 5 star rating. I wish I could have preserved all of my wedding flowers because I have never seen flowers so amazing. (It is April, and I still have 3 dried out Bouquets on my Kitchen Table).

I definately did a lot of review reading when I was planning our wedding and it swayed many of my decisions. I read a lot of the reviews for Shamrock and was a little disappointed because of some of the reviews. Specifically in Responsiveness...as a former bride and a past and present control freak (ha) I wanted to call my florist every day and check on my flowers because this was one of my favorite elements of wedding planning but you have to keep in mind that this is a business and they're extremely successful and busy making sure that each of our special days exceed our expectations and they can't do this if us crazy brides are constantly calling with changes. Florists are artist and they are extemely creative they need room to show their creative side. If you go in with this understanding and let Linda work her magic you will not be disappointed.

I could not have been any happier with the flowers for our wedding and I highly recommend Shamrock to any bride and groom that wants their wedding flowers to be a perfect master piece (and not break the bank). I'd never consider another florist. Thanks so much Linda and Kyle you guys are great!

The flowers that Shamrock provided were absolutely amazing. Everyone commented on how beautiful they were. Most of our guest were trying to take the flower pieces home at the end of the night because they like them so much. When we went into the floral shop to get an idea on what to do, the lady who help us was wonderful. She gave us idea on color, style, and design. My only complaint is they are really busy so at times it does seem like they were a bit disorganized. I had to called to see if anyone was going to finalize my order and they said oh we call you two weeks before and I'm like well my wedding is next week. They seemed kind of shocked. However, they had everything on target the day of the wedding!

My flowers were absolutely beautiful I went in for initial consultation with Susan and I had some pretty solid ideas. She worked with me and took my ideas and turned them into a magic setting. I never thought of multiple different centerpieces. My guests raved. The only issue is that they seemed a bit disorganized. They could not find my order when I went in for my final consultation. I had a bit of anxiety, but they came through better than I could have imagined. Thanks Shamrock.

Shamrock Garden is one of the suggested vendors for flowers that the Brookfield Zoo suggested. You can go to someone else, they have just done several weddings at the Zoo and know the drill.

We also tried to give our business to family owned, small business venues and we selected Shamrock Gardens based on that as well as cost.

Linda is a dream to work with, go in there with some pictures of what you like and be prepared to describe why you like it, is it the organic or structured, etc. She really knows her stuff as well and is very reasonably priced.

We only had them do our personal flowers, since we had candles for our centerpieces and other things as our ceremony decorations. Our personal flowers were wonderful, vibrant and well put together.

We did first look and bridal party/family photos before the ceremony so my flowers were pretty much abused before the ceremony, but they held up pretty well. I just picked off the bruised rose petals before the ceremony.

The bouts and wrist corsages for the parents/grandmother were beautiful and lasted for quite a few days, as well as the bridesmaids bouquets.

We had a great experience with them. I didn't have a clear idea of what I wanted, just the colors in mind and a couple flowers I definately wanted incorporated. They filled in the rest for me based on the look and feel I was going for and they nailed it! They picked flowers to put on our cake and it turned out beautiful. The centerpieces exceeded my expectations and the flowers were all very fresh. All the bouquets were beautiful. They were really helpful when we had our consultation, making sure we picked flowers that would last outside in the heat. They also set up the ceremony flowers at the park for us and were very prompt to move them to the reception after the ceremony, they were fast and efficient and did a great job. This was one part of the day I didn't have to worry about, they took care of everything for us and it turned out beautifully.

I was a bit disappointed, as I had supplied 45 candles to be used on the head table and they all but 10 were lost and not used! While the center pieces were beautiful, I was also expecting my bridesmaids boquets to be all green, as we had discussed, but they were mostly white.

To be fair, I think it was just the person who we happened to get as our consultant from there that was the problem. The rest of the people we came into contact with who worked there seemed nice and accomodating. My bouquet, the flowers on the tables at the reception, and the boutonnieres for the guys were great. The bridesmaids, junior bridesmaids, and flower girl's flowers were not what I asked for. Also the decorations on the pews were exactly the oppsoite of what I asked for and the altar flowers were not good. I had given them a picture of exactly what I wanted for the bridesmaids and what I got was similar but in no way the same or anywhere as pretty as what I asked for. Also, the bouquets for the bridesmaids were pretty small. The consultant was rude to me.

Shamrock garden was wonderful to work with. I did not want anything that was common. They exceeded my expectation! I loved my flowers. They work very closely with the Abbington so all of the center pieces were included in the cost of the recepetion and they looked great!

one thing that I would have changed was on our wedding cake, we had imagined that the flowers would be roses, but they were not. They were an assortment of all of the flowers in our bouquets. It still looked amazing, just not what we had imagined.

Shamrock florists were included in the price of my banquet hall, the Abbington. They met with me to find out exactly what I wanted and they were very attentive to the details. They provided the centerpieces for all my tables, the head table and the card table. All the flowers were beautiful and were exactly what I wanted. It was so easy because of the affiliation with my banquet hall, I didn't have to do anything but meet with them once and describe what kind of flowers I wanted.

This florist was amazing!! I have never known a lot about flowers and after spending hours looking through magazines trying to figure out what I wanted I just wanted to give up. I went to this florist telling her that I wanted white flowers to keep the evening traditional with a black/white wedding theme and candles, but other than that I didn't have much else direction for her. When I walked down the aisle I was blown away by the exquisite flowers at my ceremony and reception. I felt like my flowers created my fairy tale wedding. I could not have been happier and she was so easy to work with. Extremely professional and had everything set up on time (my reception ceremony were in the same area).

Out of all the vendors involved with our wedding, Shamrock Garden was by far the most disappointing. We went with them because they were associated with the Abbington and because they were the cheapest out of the three florists we spoke to. I guess you get what you pay for. From the beginning of our first meeting, Linda appeared unorganized, careless, and rushed.

Shamrock Garden finalizes all orders two weeks before your wedding. I asked if I could make an appointment to come in for this (since I was worried about them getting it right), but they wouldn't let me! They said I would have to do it over the phone. When I finally spoke to Linda, she didn't have any record of any of the changes I previously made, but she assured me everything would be right for the wedding. I clearly went over with her that I wanted all hot pink bouquets (with no green flowers or leaves), mine would be wrapped in excess fabric from my dress (which she said was fine), and the pew flowers would each contain 3 hot pink roses. She again seemed rushed and unorganized and I had a feeling she wasn't paying attention to a word I was saying.

On the day of the wedding, the bouquets were completely wrong. There were supposed to be all hot pink (which I clearly went over with Linda just 2 weeks prior) and instead were almost all white with green. I sent them back to be corrected and instead of fixing them with new flowers, she haphazardly ripped hot pink roses from our pew flowers and stuck them in the bouquets. When she brought them back, the bouquets were pink but looked messy and unprofessional. They still had random green leaves in them. I took them anyway as we were about to start pictures and had no other choice. The pew flowers now only had 2 roses in each and were ripped apart, tilted over, and looked ridiculous. The bouquet was wrapped in stark white ribbon instead of my dress fabric I provided, which looked horrible against my ivory dress.

After the wedding, my day-of coordinator suggested that she contact Shamrock Garden to try to get a partial refund for the pew arrangements since they ended up having less flowers than what I paid for. Shamrock Garden ignored her calls and refused to get back to her. After a week of trying to get someone on the phone, they said they wouldn't give a refund, stating that it was not listed in the contract that I wanted all hot pink flowers, so it wasn't their fault they had to use the pew arrangements. I said I wanted all hot pink flowers from the beginning. When I realized that she did not listen to me when originally writing the contract, putting down "all pink" instead of "all hot pink," I called to make sure it was clear what I wanted. And when I had my final consultation over the phone, I again said "all hot pink," making sure they understood what I wanted. My issue is, how am I supposed to make sure they update the contract when they don't even let me come in to their office? Any reputable company would take responsibility for their errors instead of trying to blame the customer for their mistakes. I wouldn't have written this review if they had fixed my bouquet correctly without messing up the pew arrangements in the process. However, since both the pew arrangements and bouquets came out looking unprofessional, and they refused to take any responsibility for the problem, I would like to warn other potential customers of what they're getting themselves into when booking with Shamrock Gardens.

Church, Reception, Bride, and bridesmaid flowers were beautiful. At the reception we have 1/2 water fall white & hot pink flowers and 1/2 hot pink orchids in tall round vase in water. At the last minute Ii was told that they had to trade out the vases for another one that was taller. To me bigger is better and I was ok with the switch. The flowers were stunning! The bouquets smelled the best and lasted after the fact in the refrigerator for another week afterwards.
Issues: The only 2 issues were we had ordered a unity candle and flowers for the flower girl and they never showed up at the church. We had to have someone run out last minute to buy them.

I was a very chill bride. I felt as though they did not fully listen to me due to the fact that the center pieces were not how I wanted them and they made the junior bridesmaid flowers so tiny--for a flower girl. When I complained she said,"I apologize I guess I didn't write it down" moral of the story be rude so they remember or record it yourself. Especially since I reviewed my order with them three times and it was accurate until they wedding day.

Flowers were beautiful so I do recommend them just be prepared for human error

We had our reception at the Abbington which meant that our flower centerpieces for the reception were coming from here. After doing some price comparison, they were also the most affordable vendor for the rest of our flowers for my wedding. I met with them a couple times and each time we sat down, they made sure every detail of the day was covered. I also found a picture of the flowers I wanted for my bouquet and for my bridesmaids bouquets. When the flowers were delivered the morning of the wedding, I almost cried because they were so beautiful and perfect. Looking back at our pictures, one of my favorite things that day was our flowers. They were fresh, so colorful, and absolutely stunning! I would highly recommend them for your flower needs!

Shamrock is awesome. My wedding flowers were glorious and totally matched the inspiration photos I showed the floral designer. They were very efficient, and also took a load off of me by letting me know they had decorated my ceremony space tons of times and had the look down to a science. They set everything, including bows on the pews and our ceremony candles, up for us, and I didn't have to worry about a thing. They're also reasonably priced. I'd highly recommend them to any future brides and grooms.

Price was good, but they didn't flow what I told them. I gave them some requests, and they didn't flow it.

I expected the flowers to not be exact, but I told them on pearls and I had those. I also said to stay away from a certain flower too much in a bridesmaid flowers and they overkilled with it.

I still loved my flowers, but I felt they needed to be organized better.

Shamrock Gardens provided flowers that were far beyond our expectations! We chose a basic color scheme and a few types of flowers, but left the rest to the professionals and they did great. As the bride, I didn't know much about flowers, but they made the process easy and put my vision to life. At one point I did call the office 3 times before reaching someone to discuss my centerpieces. The first time I left a message which was unreturned and the second I was told to call back because it was "too busy." I certainly understand June is an extremely busy month for weddings, however, from a customer service standpoint I do not find that acceptable. Overall, they were accomodating and again the centerpieces, boquets, and other arrangements were beyond beautiful. I would recommend Shamrock to those looking for beauty with good value, as you get a lot for the money.
