The flowers were beautiful. She picked very unique flowers, exactly like we imagined. She was very nice, down to earth, easy to talk to. She really wanted to get your vision for your day. She was also very accommodating and offered to help with extra things to make our day better. She went above and beyond and we are very pleased.

We worked with Dorothy for our Sept 19 wedding and had a great experience. Some other event florists in Chicago wouldn't even work with us as we couldn't meet minimum budget requirements. Dorothy was able to put together a plan that fit our budget and still incorporated some of our favorite more pricey flowers. Not to mention lots of personal attention that really made us feel valued. Really helped to make our wedding beautiful. We would definitely recommend! - Thank you Wishing Well!

Dorothy at Wishing Well is an amazing florist! The flowers were one of the most important elements to me for my wedding and I had a decent but not huge budget for what I wanted. Dorothy worked really closely with me to give me the most bang for my buck and she did a great job of interpreting my ideas.

I wanted a "garden" look to my flowers. Lots of soft colors, fluffy flowers, etc. I also told her that I wanted my centerpieces to look like they were growing out of the table - confusing, right? Not for Dorothy! Everything was beautiful and I was sad at the end of the night when I couldn't take everything home with me.

I would absolutely use Dorothy and Wishing Well Florist again.

I work with plants as a landscape designer and have a lot of personal style(and opinions about combinations of plants). Heidi Reed and Dorothy Flisk managed to capture that style and work with the style of my dress to create something breathtakingly amazing and inspiring. I loved the balanced blending of textures, colors and materials. We had seed pods, flowers, feathers and branches combined in really creative ways that always looked stunning, elegant and tasteful. The concept was beautifully and consistently carried through the corsages, boutineers, bouquets, table arrangements etc. They worked with my budget and I felt like they really listened to what I wanted and help me figure out what that would look like when I had no idea what I wanted. I know it was my own wedding but I have never seen flower arrangements that were so beautiful and I had so many guests comment on them. I will use them for every single event that I would like to have flowers at. I have also seen their work at other events and it never fails to impress me. I highly recommend Wishing Well in every respect.

I worked with Dorothy for my 9/8/13 wedding and words cannot express how thankful I am for her help. Starting a few months before my wedding I met with Dorothy to discuss my “vision”. Turns out, I wasn’t completely sure of the look I wanted but Dorothy was able to help me figure this out. She showed me a picture list of flowers and I hand picked the ones I liked and pointed out the ones I did not. Before the wedding, I sent numerous emails back and forth to Dorothy as we finalized the floral contract. She was very thoughtful and mindful of my budget, but would not compromise on the look. She was very honest with me when she thought we could remove flowers from the centerpieces to stay within the budget but would not let me remove flowers from my bouquet because she said it would not look the way I wanted (I provided her a picture). Fortunately, for a bride with ever changing desires, I was able to make changes even several weeks out from the wedding and I never felt rushed or pressured to do anything.

We did a mock centerpiece trial (you can choose with arrangement you want to view an example of before the wedding) and I was blown away. Even the venue coordinator was shocked at how stunning the centerpieces looked. On the day of the wedding, the floral arrangements were delivered on time and everyone was amazed at how beautiful the flowers were! My bouquet, the bridesmaids, the ceremony flowers, mother’s corsages and the centerpieces were incredibly beautiful! When I say detailed oriented, I mean incredible attention to details. My wedding flowers were beyond my wildest dream. These are just a few of the ways Dorothy helped me, believe me I could go on and on.

If you are looking for floral arrangements that you see in the magazines, quality customer service and respect of your budget, I highly recommend Dorothy at the Wishing Well Florist.

Heidi was fantastic! She had thoughtful suggestions without being overbearing and she truly has a wonderful knowledge of her field. She was also very flexible with my budget; we discussed options even before the first meeting, and she provided me a proposal with multiple options for each flower arrangement that would allow me to vary the cost. Most importantly, the delivery went smoothly and the flowers were gorgeous! We had so many compliments during and after the wedding. If I need flowers for another event, I would absolutely work with Heidi again. Thanks for helping make our wedding so beautiful!

Dorothy was a treat to work with. Our venue was very specific and very grand which called for subtle and understated flowers to not compete with the space. Dorothy worked with me in choosing the right flowers for centerpieces as well as my bouquet. She put a lot of effort into making things very personal for me and my husband. My husband is a chef and she suggested rosemary to be used in some centerpieces and as decoration. It looked beautiful. My bouquet was beautiful and perfect.

I used The Wishing Well for my wedding on 8/31/13 and I was very happy! Heidi was very sweet and easy to work with. During the consultation, she was knowledgeable, calm, friendly and flexible.

She was easy to work with during the contract and negotiation stage. She was very responsive over email and I particularly appreciated her suggestions that showed that she was sensitive to my budget - she would point out what would make the most impact and what was probably not worth the money. Much appreciated!

On the day of the wedding, the flowers were pretty and had the look and feel we agreed upon. She was on time and very professional.
