Theresa's floral designs for my son's wedding exceeded our expectations in every conceivable way. The flowers were breathtaking! Theresa took the time to ensure that we had exactly what we wanted. Although we selected everything ahead of time, it was her artistry and creativity that was so transforming and beautiful. She is thoroughly knowledgeable about all aspects of weddings, and is such a wonderful resource, in case you have questions about how to proceed. We had tons of questions! I recommend her without reservation. She is, hands down, the best!

Theresa made the bouquets for me and my bridesmaids for my wedding day. When the flowers were delivered the morning of the wedding I was so impressed, and I can't express in words how absolutely stunning they looked. I don't know much about flowers and didn't give Theresa much direction other then the colors I wanted. I was so happy that she was able to create something that completely exceeded my expectations.

Theresa was a total professional and I would HIGHLY recommend her to anyone looking for a wedding florist.

Theresa perfectly executed our idea of a casual yet elegant rooftop wedding overlooking the beach and boardwalk at Rehoboth Beach. With winds kicking up prior to the ceremony, Theresa quickly adapted the design to allow for the weather conditions. When we walked into our cocktail party we were so pleased with the decor and preparations. The ballroom reception flowers were stunning and far exceeded our expectations! The wedding party flowers were beautiful, and the grooms' lapel flowers had a special touch to set them apart from the rest of the men. Theresa's attention to detail and execution in design are keys to her success! My husband and I had floral experience in our younger days, and we could not have been more pleased with our special day and the floral designs of Theresa and her team.

Theresa completely exceeded my expectations for my wedding flowers. We sat down together to discuss the hopes that I had. She was willing to work with my budget which was also really helpful for our wedding. I really did not know the specific flowers that I wanted to choose. She walked me through all the decisions about my bouquet, flower color, ribbon options, my bridal party flowers, she even helped me not forget to get grandma her own special flowers. On the day of my wedding, I was completely stunned. The flowers were exactly what I had in my mind. They were perfect. Each one artfully and delicately cared for and put together. Anyone who chooses to work with Theresa for their special day will not be disappointed. This I am sure!

Theresa was wonderful to work with! She was quick to respond to any questions I had. One of the main colors of my wedding was coral and Theresa did a great job finding flowers to match my exact shade of coral. The flower bouquet's were gorgeous and we loved the berries Theresa added to make them a bit more unique. The flowers on the tables at the reception site were beautiful! I couldn't have asked for anything better. One thing I did not have to worry about on my wedding day was the flowers. They went way beyond my expectations! I would recommend Theresa to anyone!

If there were 100 stars for all categories, Theresa would get them from me. Aside from my husband, she was my favorite thing about my entire wedding day. When I first pulled up to Theresa's office, I was nervous. I had just come from a horrible photographer meeting (not with the photographer I used obviously) and didn't know what to expect. She was recommend by the venue I selected...but then so was the horrible photographer. I told my mom, she has 10 minutes to wow me. It only took 5. From the jump Theresa understood my personality, vision, ideas, wants, needs, etc better than my mom did! Leading up to the wedding, I did not once feel like I needed to follow up or micromanage Theresa. She had it. As an out of town bride, that was extremely comforting to me. Her proposal was thorough without any hidden costs or agendas. She had ideas that were beyond anything I could imagine. On the day of my wedding, Theresa was my rock. She was there in the beginning to hand me my flowers before my husband and I did our "first look" photos. She was there as we were getting ready, and waiting with my dad and I at the top of the stairs making sure my veil was perfect and my flowers were held just right.
I had chose a pretty classic pattern with a flair for the wild/vintage mixed in. Theresa knew exactly when to taper and where to make lush as we mixed centerpieces of all different sizes and variety. From tall silver antique vases of baby breath to low laying, overflowing mixtures of flowers in creams, light pinks, and greens she took the natural beauty of the garden location we got married in and compounded it! Twinkling lights in trees, beautiful votive candles on tables, and large lanterns on coffee tables in front of sprawling couches were amazing touches to the already beautiful setting she had created.
Every event I ever have in need of flowers will be handled by Theresa. She is a wonderful person, an incredible professional, and one hell of a florist!

Our wedding at Winterthur provided the perfect palette for Theresa's special talents. Everything she created was absolutely gorgeous, and she even added little touches to spaces we hadn't even thought of! Her gracious and gentle demeanor was just what we needed the day of the wedding. She actually managed to calm down three very jittery flower girls! Disaster with sugar flowers on the cake -- not a problem -- Theresa steps in to save the day! I truly hope to have the opportunity to use Theresa's services again and can't recommend her enough.

Theresa did an amazing job with my wedding flowers! My bouquet was absolutely gorgeous and elegant and even better than I envisioned! My bridesmaid bouquets were lovely as well and complimented their dress color perfectly. The boutonnieres looked perfectly rustic with hypericum berries. The church looked transformed with Theresa's flowers on the altar and on the pews. Theresa absolutely nailed it!

Theresa was recommended to us by a close friend and now I know why!

Theresa was a true joy and pleasure to work with. My husband and I knew the look we were going for and a few flowers we liked and Theresa brought the whole vision to life. I was providing a few Handmade centerpiece details and she made sure to compliment them and really invested time in understanding the look of the wedding. We handed over creative freedom to her and when the flowers arrived at the wedding we were beyond impressed. She added the most creative funky elements to my bridal bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets were complimentary and unique in their own way. She provided beautiful rustic pillars for our ceremony flowers and everything just looked amazing.

Theresa was so easy going and always responsive to our questions and emails. I highly recommend Theresa Floral Design to any bride to be.

Wow.......... Theresa was a dream to work with from day one! She really impressed me with our first consultation that I recommended her to someone else getting married in the area before us- before I even got to see what she was going to do for us in the end!!!! (And that person ended up using her and LOVED her too!!)

She totally picked up on my vision, helping me form it through our consultation meeting. And when things had to be altered because the flowers that were shipped in were "substandard," she immediately contacted me and discussed the options, avoiding any nasty surprises.

And the flowers were beautiful............. absolutely beautiful. I can say this, because the wedding was just yesterday & it's all still fresh in my mind. Theresa showed up at the church before we were finished with our pictures and even fixed a flower that was beginning to droop in my bouquet. That's the kind of attention to detail this woman provides with her services. She's just going to blow anyone else out of the water!!

Hi Theresa,
The flowers were all spectacular and held up beautifully all day long which was quite a feat at 104 degrees! When I entered the Greenville CC I gasped at the beautiful presentation! The arrangements, the card table, the "Honking big" flower on the cake and all the extra special touches on the occasional tables and mantle were the work of a shear genius and gifted artist. You even remembered to add Rosemary to the bouquets as a nod to our Italian heritage-for luck and you sewed Alex"s baptism cap into her bouquet. I am so grateful to have found you. Thank you for making my little girl's dream wedding come true!!!
With warmest regards,
Vivian

Theresa was unbelievably amazing! She had so many amazing ideas and really brought our wedding to life through the amazing floral designs. My bouquet was gorgeous and my attendants loved their flowers! She was willing to work with our budget and still make everything look amazing! The arrangements at my church service were so beautiful I wish we could have kept them forever. Our centerpieces were perfect - Theresa was able to incorporate our table names into the arrangement which helped with our Broadway themed reception! I would recommend Theresa to anyone in need of flowers!

Theresa was wonderful to work with! We had another quote from a Florist before we met with her but I felt that they didn't fully understand my vision that I was going for.

Since we were married in April, I wanted lots of flowers and tea lights. There are so many flowers in bloom in April and I wanted to capture that as well as have the tea lights look like fireflies.

Within minutes of meeting Theresa she made my vision come to life with only knowing a few details of my wedding. She gave me beautiful flowers and suggested high center pieces with curly willow that had the tea lights hanging off them. She also decorated the windows and hung tea lights and flowers from an opening in the room that also made my firefly fantasy come to life. Her vision and creativity is impeccable! I was blown away when she began to describe her vision for our day. It was even better when I saw the vision come to life on our wedding day.

Lastly, she responded quickly to emails and was there to supervise the arrangement on the day of our wedding. Flowers were so important to us and I was at ease when I personally saw her delivering the flowers to the hotel with her staff.

I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a fantasic florist.

I knew I was going to enjoy working with Theresa as soon as we met for the first consultation. You can tell she is passionate about floral design and making your day special. Because of a limited budget, we only wanted bouquets, boutonnieres, and mother corsages - but you would have thought we wanted thousands of dollars worth of flowers by the way Theresa treated us. At first I was nervous to tell a floral designer that I only wanted a few things - I wasn't sure if there would be any 'pushing' for more items or if she wouldn't work with us for such a small request. But none of that was an issue! She didn't event hint at adding additional pieces and was so helpful in assisting us to choose the best combinations for the bouquets. I was also really happy with the final price - I thought it was very fair and well worth the value provided.

The flowers came out just the way I asked for them and I couldn't have been happier with the end result. Thanks, Theresa, for a beautiful addition to our day! ~Aubree

I have been to many wedding in the past 62 years, including some very extravagant affairs in NYC, and Theresa Floral did an absolutely fabulous job with our recent wedding. Planning the designs was very professionally done as well as fun. The flower arrangements were beyond our expectations - simply incredible...you really have to see pix to appreciate Theresa Floral's creative genius and artistry. The installation was handled very professionally, on time, and there was not a single thing which was not 100%.

I VERY HIGHLY recommend this floral design company

When the venue for our wedding was determined, I knew there was no other florist to use but THERESA Floral Design. Theresa combines her knowledge of flowers, with her background in fine arts to deliver unusual, artistic floral arrangements that are second to non. Theresa listened carefully to our needs and showed us several prototypes to choose from. Working with her was such a pleasure. She was professional, cost-conscious, and down to earth.

Theresa's floral arrangements took our wedding from beautiful to the sublime. I highly recommend her.

I would highly recommend Theresa Floral Design to anyone looking for florist. Not only did Theresa take care of my floral arrangements and wedding party flowers, she helped design a ceremony site and decorate fireplace mantels throughout my wedding venue that truly helped create a beautiful space for my big day. I came to Theresa with a few ideas and then I let her creative juices flow. I had the utmost confidence in her ability to capture the feeling I had described based on her art background and seeing samples of her work. Theresa was very prompt in email replies and answered any questions or concerns honestly as well as professionally. I would certainly consider using her again in the future and give her very high praise to anyone looking for these services.

I had a truly excellent experience with Theresa for my June 4 wedding in Dewey Beach, and highly recommend her to any bride looking for innovative design, wonderful customer service and responsiveness, all from an incredibly nice designer!

Theresa and I had communicated by email, as I was planning my wedding from DC. After checking her schedule, she promptly got back to me to arrange an hour-long beginning phone consultation, wherein I threw ideas at her, and she did her best to mesh them all into a cohesive vision. After that, I met her for an in-person consultation, and based on the concepts I'd sort of thrown out ("Architectural. Spiky. Different.") , she developed a few concepts, and showed me the flowers she felt responded to those images.

As the design and planning process continued, I felt more and more comfortable with Theresa just going with her vision - she had these really wonderful ideas, and based on her previous work, I just felt that I could trust her to make the appropriate call. So eventually, I basically said..."Just do whatever you think will be awesome (within my budget of course ;)". AND SHE DID. it was PHENOMENAL. Like...our wedding colors were aqua, red, and old gold, and she made these sculptural arrangements using aqua wire clouds, interspersed with copper wire, and using roses, tomatoes, red gerbera daises, hot peppers lit with LED lights...it was so cool, and so us.

When you're in stressed-out bride mode, being able to let something go because you trust your designer to do something amazing feels like a major favor. So, I'm really glad we got the opportunity to work with Theresa, and seriously, if you're getting married in her vicinity, you should really talk to her.

Theresa was truly a dream to work with. From the first meeting, she was welcoming and inviting and listened very closely to what I wanted. By my last meeting closer to the day she knew some of the flowers I wanted wouldn't be available during that part of the season and suggested others that were just as great. She is very knowledgable when it comes to flowers, how they look, how they'll work with your vision, etc. I wanted peonies in early April and she got them for me (from Holland, no less)! When last minute (very small) changes had to happen - for example the pink stock she wanted to use for the flower girl's fairy wands turned out to be not up to her standards, she emailed me to see if it was ok to improvise with some white stock - and it looked wonderful. I cannot say enough about her, very responsive, affordable, and caring.

From the first call to the drop-off of rental items after our reception, Theresa has been absolutely amazing. When looking for a floral vendor, we visited four companies in northern Delaware, and compared them for value (most important to us) and expertise (looking at lots of albums). Theresa stood out from the rest with her use of color and textures - her arrangements and overall design were gorgeous, and frankly, we didn't think we could ever afford her. When we saw the final estimate, it was amazing that she was able to do so much at such a low cost compared to the other Delaware florists.

She met with us several times to design a wedding that was exactly what we wanted. She also worked with us over email and phone with no problems since we weren't local. At one of our meetings, she actually went in her personal garden, pulled out flowers that would be similar to what we'd have, and did mock-ups of our centerpieces when we had trouble imagining it. Theresa went above and beyond to make sure we were always comfortable and excited about our flowers.

Theresa truly made our wedding custom. I'm an electronics hobbyist, and Theresa had no problems incorporating my (admittedly unattractive) circuit boards and LED lights into her designs. She spent a lot of time with us working out the details and making sure everything went perfectly. She was totally supportive from concept to implementation, and was just as excited as us to make them happen.

Theresa is certainly a perfectionist, and spent time tweaking all the arrangements and centerpieces after they were delivered on-site. The flowers ended up looking amazing - well beyond our expectations - especially for what we paid. I would highly recommend her to friends and family, no matter what their budget, and we cannot wait for our pictures to come back -- the first thing we'll look for are the pictures of our flowers.

I probably interviewed close to a dozen florists for my 7/24/10 wedding before deciding on Theresa. I felt like she understood exactly what I wanted and was by far one of the most professional vendors I have ever worked with! She really paid attention to my vision and went above and beyond to create beautiful floral arrangements for my day. I received compliments throughout the night from guests on how much they loved the centerpieces. Even the venue's staff said they have never seen prettier flowers at the venue before! She also worked with me to use my mother's collection of glassware as vessels for the flowers which I greatly appreciated. Also, because she is exclusively a floral designer and she doesn't run a floral shop, those overhead costs are not passed on to you and her price is extremely competitive. I would recommend this company to anyone getting married in the Philadelphia area!

My daughter's wedding was 6/19/10. Theresa did the flowers for us, as well as a terrarium for the seating card table and some large wreaths for the door to the barn where the reception was held. Everything was absolutely beautiful, the price was very reasonable, her service was impeccable. But the thing that differentiated her from other florists we met with was the way she truly LISTENED. She didn't push her agenda - she took a lot of time to listen to my daughter and understand her. Because she did that first, her ideas and suggestions were absolutely on target. We were completely confident in leaving everything in her hands because we felt she really understood what we wanted. As I said, everything was beautiful - but what was the best part of working with her was the comfort and security we had in her handling everything. We knew that she would be the one taking care of our flowers, not handing off the work to someone else who did now know us. I would highly recommend her for flowers/decor for any type of event.

Theresa is kind, flexible, understanding, and works hard to accommodate and please her clients. Anyone looking for a florist for an upcoming special day should certainly think of Theresa Floral Design!

We just had Theresa do the flowers for our son's wedding and she did an amazing job. The flowers for the church were so beautiful and she worked with us to do pew baskets for unconventional pews. The flowers for the bridal party were perfect with the dresses. She spent a lot of time with us at the consultation and was very easy to contact for questions or when there were changes. She also made sure everything went smoothly during the ceremony.

I had such a great experience with Theresa! When I first met with her she really took the time to explain different types of flowers to me (since I don't know much at all) and made sure she knew exactly what I was looking for. Based on the few ideas I had she was able to create unbelievably gorgeous bouquets for myself and my bridesmaids!! She has such a great vision and I trusted her completely. The floral arrangements she did for the ceremony were so beautiful and they completely tied everything together. Everyone absolutely loved the flowers and I really can't thank her enough! Theresa is such a nice person and so easy to work with, I highly recommend her!

From the very first meeting with Theresa, I knew I could trust her to produce something spectacular. I myself am a horticulturalist so my floral demands were pretty great, however we had a limited budget to work with and that was no problem for Theresa. She was more than willing to work with the resources we had available. I had requested several rare and exotic flowers that other florists told me were not available, but Theresa worked very hard to make sure I got what I wanted on my wedding day. Guests (as well as myself) were blown away by her designs at the reception and her use of unconventional materials to represent the wedding colors.

Theresa was the only vendor that I didn't need to give explicit instructions to. I felt comfortable enough with her to give her artistic freedom and it was nice to have a few fun surprises on our wedding day. After going through the wedding day with multiple other problems, it was a treat to know that I didn't have to worry about the flowers. The peace of mind that Theresa provided was absolutely invaluable to myself as the bride.

Theresa carried out my vision for wedding day in a better way than I could ever have imagined. I loved my bouquet so much that I have decided to preserve it so I can look at those flowers for years to come!

Theresa created beautiful centerpieces and bouquets for our wedding at the Hotel du Pont in Wilmington, DE. She used gorgeous, fresh roses, with lovely accents like ribbon, pearls, and sparkles. They were everything we hoped for, and more. She created exactly what we had described to her - our vision to a T. I would recommend Theresa Floral Design to everyone! She was extremely professional, understanding, patient, and had a great eye for classy designs. She asks all the right questions, to find out exactly what you are picturing in your head. She made wonderful choices that stayed within out budget, yet still looked lovely. She was able to stretch our money as far as possible, but never sacrificed quality. Contact Theresa! She will make your wedding flower dreams come true!

Theresa is amazing! I was married in January and Theresa did a STUNNING job with the flowers. She is the perfect combination of professional, creative, flexible, and artistic with exquisite taste. Everyone who was a guest at the wedding or has seen pictures comments on how beautiful the flowers were. Her centerpieces and bouquets brought color, life, and style to my winter wedding. I whole heartedly recommend Theresa; she will wow you!

I can not say enough about Theresa. She is a true artist! Being an event planner by trade I see a lot of decor and flowers but never anything like this. She pays close attention to details and also to the vision of the bride. I would 100% use her again and again and do now in business. You will not regret using her!

Where do I start?!?! What a wonderful woman to work with! Theresa was extremely professional and flexible! After meeting with Theresa, both my mother and I knew we had to work with her. She was able to pull out my vision and create a great feel for our wedding. Theresa used her ablility to use her artistic vision to build and produce a look and feel with the flowers that were beyond what I had visioned and above what I could have ever imagined. I would highly reccommend Theresa Floral Design for any event, not just weddings!

Flowers were fantastic! She was fantastic. Her staff was fantastic. I tend to be very particular about aesthetics and thus spoke with several florists before I settled on her. We opted to go with her because she was able to articulate back to me exactly what I was looking for on the day of the event; worked with us re: our budget; made suggestions when flowers we wanted weren’t in season; was truly the subject matter expert on all things floral.

I would work with her (and her talented staff) without hesitation. We don’t live in the area, so all planning was done via phone, email and scanned copies of pics we found in magazines. She more than exceeded our expectations.

She was reliable. She arrived when and where she said she was going to.

She was flexible in working with any design changes we wanted to make during the design and implementation of floral arrangements. She had extra flowers and she made an arrangement for one of the guest bathrooms without being asked to do so.

Her arrangements were beautiful. Our ceremony and reception was outside. The ceremony was on the beach. She and her staff set up the wedding site following every detail we provided and made some design decisions we hadn’t thought of, which ended up making for a beautiful ceremony spot. We had ridiculous wind! And, I do mean RIDICULOUS – to the point of the linens flying all around and partially coming off the tables – and her floral arrangements held up. During the design process, I asked and described the centerpieces using the terms ‘LOW’, ‘LUSH’, and ‘SQUARE’. That’s precisely what we received. Every guest commented how spectacular the centerpieces were. For the ceremony site, I asked for ‘LUSH’, ‘GREEN’ and ‘FERNS’. Again, precisely what we received.

We felt very much taken care of on the day of the event, and throughout the process. She called and emailed several times to apprise us of updates, to check-in re: any questions we may have had, and she was a calming person in a sea of chaos at the venue.

Theresa, her staff, and the beautiful floral arrangements they provided us were definitely one of the highlights of the wedding!

She was phenomenal. Save yourself the headache of searching for florists. If you can, use her talents.

As a busy bride from New York getting married in Delaware, I needed a floral designer who would be responsive, flexible and take initiative. I found it all in Theresa, who was able to take my vague ideas of color, flower and aesthetic and turn it into exactly what I wished for but could barely articulate. What's more, she was able to stay within my extremely strict budget without compromising quality. Choose Theresa -- you'll have no regrets.

I had a great feeling about Theresa after our initial consultation. She was the only florist who I felt really took time to get to know me, my personality, my "vision". This combined with her artistry resulted in some beautiful wedding reception decor! The day I saw my mock-ups was the first day I REALLY got excited for my wedding, I could finally see it all coming together. She provided us with beautiful, unique creations, and was very flexible and easy to work with. She worked with our budget which is another plus. I would absolutely recommend Theresa to other brides - her professionalism, flexibility, creativity - you can't go wrong!

Theresa Floral was amazing! She was our floral designer for our wedding and we have continued to come back to her for flowers for other important occasions. Theresa provided the flexibility, creativity & dependability that we needed---and went above & beyond our expectations and dream of our wedding flowers & overall feel. We came to Theresa with a general idea of colors that we wanted and she guided us through her wonderful design process with our ideas always in mind. We had a garden concept, but she created a feel and look much more then we ever imagined. Theresa was one of the aspects of our wedding day that we knew we didn't need to stress about---her designs are creative and she is dependable. Theresa was truly original in creating the special floral touches that made the day even more memorable. I would absolutely recommend her. Congrats and best wishes on your wedding day!

Theresa’s arrangements helped made my daughter’s wedding truly memorable. We decided on a theme and colors, and wanted something creative and different that fit the theme. After talking to Theresa, we had conficence in her ability to design something truly wonderful, so we left the design to her – and our confidence was rewarded many times over. Every centerpiece was different – our guests LOVED them. And the cascade bridal bouquet was amazing – beyond our wildest expectations. In addition, Theresa is a true professional and a delightful person to work with. We had severaal DIY projects and consulted her to coordinate with her design and to get advise – she could not have been more helpful.

Theresa was a godsend. I had difficulty finding a florist I was comfortable with, and Theresa assuaged all my fears. I was a very hands-off bride, and really needed a florist that was professional and knew what I wanted even before I did.

For our first consultation, Theresa was by far the most organized, focused, and sincere florist I met with. We went through every detail of the vision I had for my wedding day, and when my husband and I left, I felt completely at ease.

As part of our centerpieces, my husband and I wanted to incorporate vintage metal film reels (we're film fans, and it was the light "theme" of our wedding) with our flowers. I had no idea how it would turn out, but Theresa's experience with Ikebana floral design made the custom pieces beautiful. She was completely confident she could meet our needs, and we knew immediately she was the right choice for us. I knew they would look awesome, and they exceeded my expectations.

I did not have a big wedding party, just me and my MOH, husband and best man. My bouquet was GORGEOUS, and without too much direction from me, Theresa was able to create exactly what I was looking for. My MOH bouquet was equally beautiful.

I would highly recommend Theresa's services as a florist. She is an absolute professional, very accommodating, and will work with you to find the perfect flowers to meet your needs. I did spend more than I wanted, but I have expensive taste (I am fully aware of that!), and I got a product that I intend on using even after the wedding - I'm using the film reels and bases to create my own art to decorate our new home.

Everything was beautiful and unique right down to the smallest detail on the men's boutinieres. All of our guests raved about our flowers. There are not enough words to express our satisfaction with Theresa, her professionlism and the end product.

Theresa is a true artist. As such, I didn't want to over-plan the floral arrangements. I talked to her about the theme and style I wanted to portray and requested that she use as many local flowers as possible. I gave her color swatches and extra ribbon that she could incorporate. We talked about the kinds of flowers that I most like and those that weren't my favorites. It was so fun to arrive at the venue not certain what everything would look like and a wonderful surprise to see how lovely it turned out.

Theresa was wonderful to work with. She spent time with me to understand what type of feel I was looking for in the flowers for my wedding. She was able to give me different options to choose from, and even allowed me to make changes within the selected designs. All of the arrangements that she provided for our wedding were just beautiful. We were looking for a natural fall look, and she got it just right.

She created pieces for the ceremony site, our cocktail hour site and for the reception itself. All of the arrangements worked well together, but had different looks to them. She made several Ikebana arrangements for the cocktail hour tables, and for the reception she made two different centerpiece styles to complement our two sets of table linens. Her creativeness in the centerpieces helped to complete the overall look of the reception.

The wedding flowers were beautiful, in vibrant fall colors of orange, yellow, burgundy and chocolate. She was able to give each of my bridesmaids an individual bouquet that still came pulled together to be part of the overall wedding.

Theresa had great attention to detail and was prompt for our meetings and on the day of the wedding for setup and clean up. I would highly recommend Theresa to anyone who was looking for a floral designer for a wedding or special event. She is truly a designer, and will work with you to design a unique floral arrangement just for you.

From the moment I met Theresa I knew I couldn't wait to work with her, she is an absolute joy! I was not really sure at first what I exactly wanted in my flowers, however, I told Theresa what I was looking for and she designed the flowers beautifully. They were more than I expected and absolutely breath-taking. I recommend Theresa floral design to anyone and everyone no matter the occasion.

The flowers for the wedding were absolutely, incredibly beautiful. The simplicity of the flowers for the ceremony were elegant and perfect. The wedding parties flowers were spectacular with the orange, blue and white. The reception area in the museum was so unbelievable transformed. It was everything I could have ever hoped for, thank you for making it look so amazing. Since the location for this wedding was so unique we had some fairly specialized ideas we wanted to incorporate. Although it took us several iterations to finalize our floral contract, Theresa remained flexible and really made the end result amazing.

Theresa is simply amazing! I had no idea what type of flowers I wanted, and Theresa sat down and walked me through all the different flowers asking what I liked and didn't. She helped to determine the perfect design for me. I was VERY excited to see what she would do on the wedding day! Theresa was also really great about working with our budget. She gave us a quote, and worked with us to get it to the price we wanted. She was a pleasure to work with! Theresa was a little bad at responding to emails (so don't expect an email back right away). Besides that, everything was great. I would definitely use her again for my wedding, and have been suggesting her to all my friends and family :-)

The wedding flowers were PERFECT. They were soooo beautiful. I could not stop staring at them. She did an absolutely amazing job with my flowers. It was exactly what I had pictured in my mind.

Thank you Theresa for making my wedding so beautiful. We were very lucky to have you as our florist!! I can't thank you enough!!!

Meeting with Theresa Clower, the owner of THERESA Floral Design, was one of the highlights of my wedding planning. Theresa was a delight - she listened intently to my wishes and then added some suggestions. She took her time to get a feel for the flavor of my wedding and my personal style.
My bouquet most definately exceeded my expectations. I cried when I saw my flowers for the first time. I guess it was the culmination of the day, seeing for the first time something that I had been looking forward to for so long, and receiving a bouquet that was definitely one of a kind and made with artistry and care. I took my bouquet on my honeymoon with me and enjoyed it for another 4 days!
I would recommend working with Theresa wholeheartedly. I cannot imagine having a more positive experience with a vendor.

It was an absolute delight to work with Theresa. She understood and worked with me on making my flower choices work with the overall feel of our entire wedding and made every effort to remain eco-friendly like I wanted the entire time. While sometimes emails seemed to get lost in the chaos of busy-season she was always provided a response about an emailed request. I was very impressed by my personal bouquet, which had aspects that I didn't even mention to her, but were perfect and so beautiful. Theresa is very good at working with you in assuring that you get everything you want within a reasonable budget.

Theresa was so flexible and easy to work with when we were planning our wedding. We did all of our consulations over the phone and through email (we live in Virginia) and Theresa was so responsive and suportive through the whole process. She was willing to work within our budget and gave great suggestions for helping us bring down the cost. The bouquets were truly works of art, with delicate winterberries and feathers - we got so many compliments! We got married in a blizzard and were so worried about Theresa being able to make it to our wedding site, but she braved the horrible weather and had our flowers to us even earlier than expected!

Theresa was great! I had a vision and she did her best to capture it. She is truly an artist. Her costs can add up quickly, so be sure to look over everything throroughly in her proposal and make necessary changes to meet your budget.

She was willing to work with my own vases and jars I provided her, which was great (since my look was so specific). She even used pieces of my mother's dress to wrap my bouquet in! Turned out beautiful.

My one complaint is that I didn't think my bouquet looked much different than my bridesmaids' bouquets like I had wanted it too. It was almost the same size! For future brides, just make sure you tell her everything that is important to you and be specific. She will follow through!

I unfortunately would not feel comfortable recommending Theresa and her Floral Design to other brides in the Delaware area. After initially meeting with Theresa, who is a very lovely lady, she really seemed to "get" my vision, and I will say she is extremely creative and really knows her stuff. However after signing the contract and booking, everything from there on out was more of a headache than it was worth. For starters, she never got my email address right and responses were ALWAYS delayed, and she would then question MY email and MY spam settings. I also had many phone and email responses to a quick question or follow up stating "very busy the next few weeks with other weddings, will get back to you when I have time." I would HARDLY classify myself as a high maintenance bride, however as a paying customer, I felt my questions and concerns should be addressed in a timely manner, not when she was done tending to other brides weddings. We had to go back and forth multiple times over price differences and random increases. From the very beginning, I had explained that I would like to use vases from my best friends wedding that she had lent me, and Theresa gave me a difficult time and almost "guilt trip" about how tacky it was to use any vases not provided by her.

My bridesmaids bouquets were so incredibly small, they were almost laughable. More accurately, I almost cried when I saw them. At that point (the morning of the wedding) there was nothing I could do but suck it up. It still makes me mad how small they were for $80 a pop, not to mention they look simply ridiculous in pictures. Although my bouquet was "pretty", it was also very small for the size I was quoted and envisioned, and really didn't look much like the picture I provided as an example of exactly what I wanted. The one thing I will say is that the flowers at my reception were really beautiful and truly were everything I had hoped and expected.

Unfortunately, would not do business with her again.
