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.

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.

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!

The Wishing Well florist took my vision of my dream wedding and brought it to life. I was the bride and my bouquet was exquisite. My bridesmaids bouquets were stunning and the Groomsman as well. At our reception our guests raved about the arrangements on the tables and the little details that they created for us. Words cannot express how happy I was with the work thy did. As a matter of fact, my aunt showed me pictures of our rehearsal spot all set up as I was getting ready for the ceremony and it brought me to tears. Dorothy and her team were extremely consultative, attentive, and professional. They went above and beyond for us and for that I will always we grateful. I would recommend Wishing Well to any bride or anyone with a special event. They are phenomenal.

What a great vendor to work with? I worked with Heidi, but would also recommend her partner just as well. She was able to take my vision of random spring flowers and really turn it into something beautiful. I really wish I could clone the flowers from the wedding and see them everyday. She was great to work with from the start and was able to walk me through the whole process.

Quality of Service: Outstanding and totally work the cost.
Responsiveness: Incredibly good. She even asked a month out if we could take a break during Valentine's day week. Incredibly professional and easy to work with.
Professionalism: Incredibly good. She was very upfront with any matters that might come up as problems with the wedding and had them solved months ahead of time.
Value: I looked at several other florists and her costs were right in line with a typical downtown Chicago Florist.
Flexibility: Really good. I had a last minute change in boutianaire color due to a last minute tie color change and she had no issues at all. Considering the color of the tie went from gray to purpose this was pretty amazing.

Where to begin? The Wishing Well Florist did a spectacular job with all of the floral arrangements for our wedding and reception. On every level, Heidi exceeded my expectations. From the first time I met with her, when I was unsure about how everything would come together since I did not have a ‘clear’ vision, she was reassuring, helpful, thoughtful, creative and so friendly. She listened to my ideas and thoughts and then followed up with suggestions. In the end we (she) achieved an amazingly elegant and stunningly beautiful environment. My family, friends, and I still marvel at how nice everything looked – she is so attentive to even the smallest details. Her knowledge and experience were only exceeded by her ‘heart’ and passion for her work. It is so difficult to articulate everything Heidi did. What I can say again is that Heidi and her team at The Wishing Well Florist exceeded any expectations we had for our wedding flowers! I absolutely loved my bouquet, and my sisters were thrilled with theirs as well. Our mothers and a grandmother were pleased with their wrist corsages, too. The centerpieces and other floral décor were all magnificent. I would absolutely recommend The Wishing Well Florist without hesitation, and I would certainly use them again if I have an event to plan.

For my first meeting, I came in feeling prepared with pictures and ideas about what types and colors of flowers I wanted and styles of bouquets I thought would compliment the event space and our personal styles. After explaining the theme and vision I had, I asked if she had another ideas of flowers I might not be aware of that would fit our event better or might be more budget-friendly. Heidi came up with many suggestions, most of which I opted for instead of my original ideas. Her ideas not only created an elegant and beautiful look that encompassed exactly what Iwas looking for, but did in a unique way that set our event apart from others I had been to or seen pictures of, and helped stay well within our original budget. Heidi was very helpful, knowledeable, friendly and professional to work with.

They worked with my budget and really listened to the vision I wanted and then executed it. They took care of all the details and made the transition from the church to the cocktail hour and to the reception seamless and stress free for me. A lot of attention to detail was also something the Wishingwell Florist did.

Honestly I cannot put into words how unbelievable Heidi at The Wishing Well Florist really is. I interviewed several florists, all of which were referrals. But Heidi's personality and attention to detail shined through the most. I gave her my vision and not only did she bring it to life but she managed to exceed every expectation. Her willingness to accommodate your every request is absolutely unbelievable. She is by far the most organized vendor I've ever dealt with. She focuses on the special, little details that truly go a LONG way when putting together an event. I can't express how grateful I am to Heidi and her team. She saw everything through from beginning to end. From dropping off arrangements in the morning for pictures to take down at night. SHE was there for everything. I would recommend her to anyone... And everyone! We even had a hiccup at the church where I forgot to mention to Heidi that I needed arrangements for both our mothers and without hesitation she whipped something up in minutes. She was absolutely amazing and I can't thank The Wishing Well enough!

Dorothy is awesome! I had seen her work at a wedding prior to planning my own, and when I looked at their online portfolio, I knew I was lucky to have her!
We talked for a while about what i wanted my flowers to look like.. In the end, I told her random things I liked... orchids, fluffy roses, succulents, tree branches and limes... and I can't believe how amazingly she made all of those things work together to make beautiful arrangements for us! There were so many flowers!!!!! so many little extra touches too, like flowers in the guests' napkins and in random places around the room.
My bouquet was exquisite-- the flowers were absolutely gorgeous, and so fresh, they lasted almost the whole week we were on honeymoon-- of course I had to bring it with me!!!
Dorothy even got through a mini-panic when I worried that my roses wouldn't be "fluffy" enough (gosh, I feel so stupid typing it now...) and she was able to get a bunch of garden roses for me on short notice, to fluff up the bunch... of course, nothing needed fluffing-- the other roses were exactly as she had promised-- fluffy and divine!

The Wishing Well Flourist did an amazing job with the flowers for our wedding/reception. We were immensely impressed with their work. Dorothy was very friendly, laid back, and more than accomodating to us. We did not have many preconceived ideas as to what types of arrangements we desired and decided to put our faith in the experts. They completely surpassed our expectations and the arrangements were beautiful. Thank you, Wishing Well Flourist (especially Ms. Dorothy Flisk), for helping to make my special day so memorable. Great, great job. (The bouquets look amazing in the pictures too!)

I worked with Heidi at the Wishing Well and she wonderful!!! I received a couple of quotes from other florists but Wishing Well was the most reasonable. Heidi worked with me on my budget and put together more pricing options than I could even count! I was really happy with how flexible and creative she was to help me achieve the look I wanted within my price range. She went above and beyond to find a wide aisle runner and a specific chuppah. The finished product looked beautiful and elegant. You can trust Heidi and she will be there to guide you through the mysterious world of wedding flowers!

Heidi and The Wishing Well Florist did an amazing job with all the bouquets, boutineers, church decor, table floral arrangements, etc. for my wedding. I chose to meet with Heidi after she was the only florist that responded to my email about my small budget for flowers. I was taken aback with how many florists just didn't feel the need to respond but Heidi was extremely accomodating and did an amazing job with my smaller budget. Heidi is extremely personable and professional. After our first meeting, I felt very confident in her ability to provide what I was looking for. She really spent a lot of time working with me to ensure she could provide what I wanted and constantly followed up with me via email about budget and flower options. I had a great time working with her. It was actually really fun! When I arrived at the church and saw my bouquet, I was very pleased. Everything came out just beautiful! I would definitely recommend The Wishing Well florist if you're looking for a company that actually cares about what you want and making you happy. Wedding planning can be a great experience if you find the right vendors, and the Wishing Well Florist made it stress free and enjoyable for me!

We used The Wishing Well Florist for our wedding on August 12th and Heidi was our coordinator. She was amazing! Incredibly nice, helpful, and a great listener. I wasn't sure what I wanted when I went in to meet with her but she helped me figure everything out and gave such great suggestions. I absolutely loved our flowers and was very happy with the results. My mother-in-law told me that she wishes she knew of Heidi when she was planning her daughters wedding 4 years ago. Not only did everything look great but I thought their pricing was so reasonable.

Choose Heidi for your wedding, you won't be disappointed :)

I was the maid of honor in my sister's late July 2011 wedding. She's doesn't have as much fun with planning and detail so I had no problem undertaking some of the duties! I saw The Wishing Well Florist listed on a popular wedding website and then looked them up on another popular rating website. All I saw was positive feedback! It was such a plus that they were basically in the middle of the city and not in some far away Suburban land. Heidi was such a pleasure to meet with and she really took what I wanted (and what my sister wanted) into consideration. She was very easy to contact during the whole process and always professional. Heidi personally took care of all the wedding day duties and made everything look gorgeous! I would definitely recommend The Wishing Well Florist to anyone without hesitation!

I cannot even begin to say how awesome it was working with Heidi and her team. She was so creative and open to my ideas, while adding with her touch to make it complete. My wedding date changed last minute and she was so accomadating with that and completely understanding. Heidi did all that she could to make my budget work and had no problem giving me beautiful results with a limited budget. She was the most knowledgable of all my vendors, even in areas that were not her expertise. She gave me tips along the way and made sure to contact me to check in as the process was happening. I honestly am unable to say all the amazing things about Heidi and the Wishing Well Florist. I loved my experience with her!! I reccomend her to all brides :)

Heidi from the Wishing Well listened to what we wanted, then took our inspiration and made it better. I still smile when I look at the photos of my bouquet. Multiple guests complimented the centerpieces. Best of all, she was able to work with our budget.

Dorothy from The Wishing Well Florist was fabulous to work with. She spent an hour with me going over my budget and ideas for the wedding at a relaxing consultation meeting at their office (champagne included!). She promptly sent over the estimate and contract - it was a little high for me so she worked with me to modify it to my satisfaction. I had a pretty relaxed wedding reception - not your typical saturday night extravaganza - and I really liked that Dorothy still included a sample piece and walked through the reception venue with me. Her service on the day of the event was perfect - she arrived early, made sure that everything was set up on time, and corsages/boutonnieres were pinned on everyone so that I didn't have to worry about a thing. She even included a bonus bouquet for my maid of honor. Everyone raved about the flowers, which ended up being exactly what I wanted. By the way, my wedding was on Mother's day - which is a nightmare if you want to have flowers...most florists weren't even willing to work with me. It turned out that The Wishing Well Florist was the perfect solution for my needs!

Book with Heidi from the Wishing Well Florist—you will not be sorry! I got married this past October and booking with Heidi from the Wishing Well Florist was one of the best decisions I made throughout the entire process! Heidi is extremely creative and talented and a joy to work with! I had a vision for what I wanted my wedding and flowers to look like and Heidi really brought that vision to life—it exceeded my expectations. I emailed Heidi constantly with questions and she was always extremely responsive. She also worked quite extensively with me to have options available for centerpieces and flowers that would work with my budget. On my wedding day, Heidi was there each step of the way—meeting me at my hotel in the morning, at the church midday and then at the reception to set up. Just a wonderful experience with Heidi and Wishing Well—oh, and did I mention that their flowers are just beautiful as well! Definitely book with the Wishing Well Florist for your wedding day!

We LOVED Wishing Well Florist!!! They did a fabulous job with the flowers and decor for our wedding... it looked simply amazing!!! We got so many compliments from our guests.

Heidi was wonderful to work with! I had a really hard time picking out my wedding colors and envisioning what the venue would look like- and she was able to take the ideas that I had and make them come to life in a way that exceeded my expectations! She provided creative options that fit my budget, and in the end she helped to create the wedding of my dreams.

I would recommend Heidi and Wishing Well Florist to all of my family and friends!

We used Wishing Well Florist for our wedding in September 2010.

Due to my anxiety, we actually started consulting with Dorothy a year in advance (I know, yikes!), and she accomodated us quite well and made us feel very comfortable. I knew what I wanted for my bridal bouquet (ivory calla lilies) and the bridesmaid bouquets (an assortment of red flowers, including calla lilies, roses, red berries, James Story Orchids, etc.). However, I had a difficult time with the centerpieces, and Dorothy guided us with her awesome "display book" of work she had done in the past. I ended up modifying one of her previous centerpieces to make it our own. Dorothy was extremely easy and effortless to work with through this process.

On the week of the wedding (Labor Day), I called Dorothy just to make sure everything was running okay. This woman is SO DEDICATED to her business that she actually called me from her personal cell phone from her vacation in Ireland to assure me everything was going fine!! WHOA!! I have to give her major props for that!! Most people would just brush off customers until they get back from vacay. Not the owners of Wishing Well Florist! This meant so much to me and saved me from an unnecessary anxiety attack. LOL.

On the day of the wedding, Dorothy and her crew showed up 30 minutes early, and the flowers were just astonishingly beautiful. Everything was absolutely perfect. She even sprinkled flowers along the windows of our venue to spruce it up. So effortless. It was fantastic! We got SOOO many compliments! People were actually scrambling to take the centerpieces home with them after the reception!

I would highly recommend Wishing Well Florist for any floral needs. Dorothy and her team are incredible!

I worked with Heidi at the Wishing Well and my flowers were above and beyond what I had envisioned. The bridal bouquet and bridesmaids bouquets were stunning, and the reception venue looked amazing. She was the ONLY florist I interviewed who quoted me within my budget- and I stayed within it! Her suggestions for flowers and centerpieces were fabulous, and I couldn't have been more pleased at how everything turned out.

I hired The Wishing Well Florist solely looking at another girls' wedding photos. I was in love with her bouquet. I worked with Heidi Dausman and she surpassed all my expectations of a florist. We didn't want to spend a ton on flowers. We did our own centerpieces to save on cost. I ultimately wanted the "wow" factor for my bouquet, nonetheless, I got it. We worked together on achieving the biggest and boldest bouquet! I had Heidi do a single long stem red rose for each bridesmaid also to save on money. We got married on November 1st and people are still talking about how beautiful my bouquet was. We were pleased to work with Heidi!

Heidi was great to work with! She responded quickly to emails and made great suggestions. She was very conscious of our budget and always let me know if something I wanted would put us over the limit. I met with several other florists, but they were all much more expensive for the same thing. The flowers were beautiful and we received many compliments throughout the night about the centerpieces.

I can not say enough about Heidi and the wonderful people at Wishing Well. Heidi helped me with everything from concept to color and was always so professional and helped me stay on budget without compromising quality. The staff not only set up for the ceremony but then stuck around to move the flowers from the ceremony site to the reception. Everything was wonderful!

I was very impressed with Heidi, the owner. She did a beautiful job on my flowers and was willing negotiate prices with me. She was in the midst of moving her business to a different part of the city, however I did not notice any affect on the services that she provided. On the wedding day however, she had forgotten to place a special flower in the church, but made up for it by placing extra flowers at the reception. She was flexible and offered great advise on types and colors of flowers. I would highly recommend her.

Working with Heidi at The Wishing Well Florist was a wonderful experience for both my husband and I. The flowers and all of the arrangements were truly breathtaking and the customer service that we received went above and beyond what was even expected. Heidi was very willing to work with us on every aspect of our day, and made sure that we received anything that we desired. All of our guests commented on just how beautiful everything was and what a wonderful job The Wishing Well did! I have reccomended them to several brides-to-be that I know, and would gladly continue doing so in the future. In addition, at close to the last minute, Heidi was able to do all of the centerpieces for my bridal shower to go along with the color theme of my wedding, and they were absolutely beautiful as well. I will definitely use The Wishing Well Florist again in the future.

The flowers, service, attitude, friendliness of The Wishing Well Florist was one of the best and favorite parts of all the wedding planning. I would reccomend them to anyone and everyone! We had an outdoor ceremony and the flowers that were provided and the archway that was created from scratch, the bouquets, boutineres, the decoration with fabric, all of it completely made the wedding unforgettable. Without those flowers and decoration it would have been just two people standing in a yard with a bunch of chairs. Wishing Well made our wedding come alive! Our endless thank yous go to The Wishing Well Florist...forever! :-)

Heidi from Wishing Well Florist was AWESOME to work with. When I was first searching online for a florist, I emailed a couple different places, and most people sent back a generic list of pieces and prices. Heidi was the only one to send me a whole preliminary proposal before I even met her!

When I did meet her in person, she was so sweet! She was very willing to work with my budget, and had a lot of different suggestions when I wanted to scale back in certain areas. That being said, you probably COULD find a less expensive florist in the Chicago area...but Heidi was SUCH a calming force and so responsive to my wishy-washiness, that I felt her attentiveness made her prices worth it. The woman had a BABY two months before my wedding, and she was still emailing back and forth with me a month after her delivery, and showed up promptly on my wedding day to deliver our flowers!

Our bouquets and centerpieces were PERFECT, and she even suggested we use the centerpieces during the ceremony to save on costs. The only aspect that I wasn't thrilled about was having to bring the vases from the bouquets to the venue, since she dropped them off at the hotel that morning. It didn't end up being a problem, though, since our parents were also staying at the hotel, and brought them over while the bridal party was out taking pictures.

Bottom line, if I could do it all over again, I'd go with Heidi and the Wishing Well Florist without a second thought!

Heidi was the best! As soon as I met her during our consultation, I knew she was going to do a great job. She is very experienced and seriously knows her stuff! She even set up time with my venue a month prior to the wedding to show me samples of the centerpieces so I could make sure they were exactly what I wanted. The day-of she was on time, professional and organized. She knew how to work with my budget and made suggestions so we could save in ways we didn't think about before! At the end of the day, the flowers were beautiful and everything I could have wanted! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!

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.

The Wishing Well Florist did an outstanding job with our wedding. Heidi, our florist, was extremely receptive and flexible to our ideas for the big day, and she was very helpful in offering suggestions of flower choices to fit the overall theme of the wedding. We had a relatively small wedding of about 80 - 90 guests, but every attention to detail was made to ensure the most perfect flowers for both our ceremony and reception. The Wishing Well Florist did an amazing job with executing our ideas for all of our bouquets, boutonnieres, and centerpieces, and simply put, our flowers were absolutely beautiful! Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a wedding florist.

Heidi from the Wishing Well Florist was amazing! Probably my favorite vendor and the flowers came out fantastic!! I will say it was a little pricy, but it was absolutely worth it. She answered all my questions and was there to bounce ideas back and forth when I was unsure of a few things I wanted to add or change last minute. Everyone commented on the flowers and said how beautiful they were.
Also trust her judgment!! She convinced me that the large garden roses were better than the peonies with my bridal bouquet arrangement and she was totally right! It was perfect and more cost effective.
She also pinned all of the boutonnieres on my guys (best idea, because they had no idea how to do it themselves).
Thank you so much Heidi!!! I really enjoyed working with you and I will recommend you to every bride I know!!

I began working with Dorothy about a year in advance and we went through various iterations of design. My final centerpiece design was pretty complex involving fish, but she did a great job. Our bouquets were gorgeous and held up really well. The only complaints I have are that the ring bearer’s bout was completely incorrect (and I still don’t know why) and Jeff’s bout was not holding up well… the Eucalyptis was all smushed behind the rose. We could not find the spare bout they had supposedly brought. And I did feel like I had to repeat myself a lot during our planning process because her notes would never reflect everything we talked about. But again, the flowers were all gorgeous and the décor she was responsible for looked great. www.wishingwellflorist.com

We had a small, budget wedding, so I did all the centerpieces and bridesmaids bouquets myself (yayy affordable wholesale flowers:). When it came time for the bridal bouquet and boutonnieres, however, I was a little overwhelmed by all the other DIY projects and decided to hire a vendor. Price-wise it was in the moderate range, not cheap but not crazy expensive either. My bouquet of white calla lilies and the groom/smen mini calla boutonnieres turned out great. Heidi was very professional and came to deliver the bouquet and pinned the boutonnieres on the guys herself. Overall I was satisfied with The Wishing Well Florist.
