Our bouquets were beautiful and lasted well over a week after the wedding. Yasmin was helpful in thinking through where to spend our money. The centerpieces at the reception were lovely and larger than I had anticipated; she took some unexpected liberties with flower choice to achieve our color pallette and budget. Overall, did I very nice job for our event.

When I first met with Yasmin from Wildflower Event Florals, I knew she was our florist. She is very knowledgeable about her craft and full of great ideas, and cost saving ideas. At our first meeting, before I had even hired her, she layed out the whole wedding and sent me a detailed contract. It was amazing, we had a few small changes before we officially signed with her. Overall I would strongly recommend Yasmin and her services. I loved my bouquet, my bridesmaids bouquets, and the pew decor that later went into bud vases and decorated the gift table, cake, lounge area, guest book table, escort card table, and the bar.

Here are some things I would have done differently and why I haven't given her 5 stars all around:

For my table arrangements I asked for 5 bowls full of flowers and the "water should not be visible, blossoms should take up all of the space in bowl" (quote from contract). At the last minute she called to inform me the "large bowl" was too large so she bought a different bowl. Since she couldn't get in contact with me she went ahead and bought them, I brushed it off since I trusted her. On the day of the wedding she had 5 small bowls with one floating flower in each bowl, definitely showing water. It still looked beautiful but it felt a little odd that I paid $20 per table for only 5 flowers each and she left a bucket in the wedding office at our venue full of unused flowers. Since this was a destination wedding I didn't get a chance to see a sample, if I had a second chance I would have done this.

I had verbally asked Yasmin to make all of our boutonnieres different from each other and include pieces of lace I had sent her. On the day of, all the boutonnieres looked the same with the same flowers in each. I had explained and envisioned them to all be an eclectic group. My brides boutonniere was different, in fact it was too different. She got this flower that wasn't on our contract that Yasmin found at the market, it looked really cool but it was wilted before I even made it down the aisle. It was a little disappointing that Yasmin didn't foresee this with her vast knowledge of flowers and their behaviors in heat. I saw her packing up to leave and asked her to fix it or make a new one since their were so many leftover flowers. All she did was snap off 1 of the 2 drooping buds and sent us on our way. If I had a second chance on this one I would have had ordered a second boutonniere for her so that when the heat ruined the first one we'd have a fresh one for pictures.

None of these things were deal breakers and none of them impaired our day. Overall she did a great job.

I can only speak for my own experience, which was nothing like the other reviews here.

In the beginning, I too was given the impression that Yasmin is dedicated and devoted. She pushed hard for the contract for my wedding, saying "I want to tell you how much I want your business", and promising that she would "work hard", that she was the one with the "vision and ethic" to get the job done. She said all the right things...but actions speak louder than words.

We scheduled several meetings. The first was cancelled the night before because her son was sick. I can't deny someone the right to take care of their son. We rescheduled, and at this meeting she arrived 20 minutes late. She texted me a minute before the meeting time that she would be late. When she arrived, it was a story about a broken printer, and sorry but she couldn't print out the information for the meeting.

At this point I had a bad feeling, but she was so much cheaper than the other quotes, I was blinded by how much I would save.

Then the deposit was squared away. Now the emails were returned slowly, always with a great sounding explanation. It took several weeks to nail down the sample appointment. The day before, I emailed to confirm. The evening before the meeting, I receive an email that she "has to cancel our meeting". This time, she had internet problems. Also she added that due to the Labor Day Holiday, she was not able to procure the flowers for the sample.

I tried to explain that cancelling such a key meeting 2 weeks before my wedding is not professional. A professional also would have forseen the "holiday" and planned around it. Her response was flippant, and she did not take any responsibility for her actions. It was the internet, it was the holiday, it was the printer. Always an external force that ruined things, so that she was blameless.

She continued to say that "why couldn't I be flexible" with the meeting time. It was shocking to hear a vendor, a PROFESSIONAL, tell a client to be flexible with a meeting THEY cancelled. I spent 20 minutes trying to explain that this was not ok -- not 2 weeks before a wedding, and actually not really anytime is it ok to do that to a client. None of my other 10 vendors ever had trouble keeping an appointment.

At this point, I had completely lost confidence in her abilities. She seemed incapable of "getting it together". Not able to prepare for a meeting because of a printer, not able to plan around a 1-day holiday to get flowers. How could I trust her with my entire wedding? I ended up taking drastic measures, which is a complete nightmare 2 weeks before a wedding: I had to get another florist.

I had some hope in Yasmin's humanity, and thought I would get my deposit back. It was her unprofessional behaviour that led me to getting someone at the last minute.

Of course, I was not surprised by her refusing any refund at all. She said "I didn't break the contract". Well, she broke the PROMISES she made, to "work hard for you", to have "the work ethic". I don't know how people can feel good about getting paid for something they didn't follow through on, but there you have it.

Yasmin will tell you what you want to hear. But let my experience be a lesson you don't have to learn the hard way.

wildflower event florals responded with the following comments:

There was never a violation of the contract in this matter. Upon receiving a request to reschedule a sample meeting (not a cancellation), the client made a decision to discontinue the working relationship, for which there was a signed contract. Both clients and vendors should be able to hold one another accountable to the terms of what's been agreed upon in a contract. As with any situation, there are two sides to every story. That being said, I sincerely apologize for my part in this unfortunate outcome. I appreciate the feedback, and will continue to strive for 100% client satisfaction.

After reading the reviews on yelp I decided to get in contact with Yasmin. I got married June 6, 2009 and she decided to do the flowers for my wedding even though there was another wedding going on the same day. I was a little worried about how that would work, but everything turned out terrific. We had a big wedding and a budget. Yasmin worked in our budget and flower items that I thought I wouldn't be able to afford, I was able to have. I emailed her all my ideas, all the different flowers i liked, and all the different styles. From there we were able to narrow down what kind of flowers we would use. I thought I would not be able to afford orchids for my wedding but all my centerpieces and main ceremony flowers ended up being orchids. Yasmin helped me so much with my wedding. For example, when I got engaged I was really nervous about how my wedding would turn out and if it would look beautiful. After my first meeting with Yasmin and planning it out I felt better. We went step by step though the whole wedding and what we could do and use. One could tell she has a lot of experience in this because she didn't leave anything out and she knew what she was talking about. She even made me sample centerpieces before we even signed the contract. I thought that was awesome of her to do that because it showed me that she knew how to make the flower arrangement. Not only did she do the flowers but she helped me with some of the decorations and gave some other decorating tips. The pew decorations with the tulle and roses was beautiful. I didn't expect it to be so beautiful. I was really worried about the pew decorations because that was the only part that I saw on the day of my wedding.
Yasmin was very professional. Every time I would email her I would get a reply right away. I had vendors that would contact me the next day, but Yasmin was always available. Also, I would keep going back to what we agreed on and would change things, which was fine with Yasmin. When I met Yasmin, I only got good vibes from her and I am extremely happy that I chose her and not someone else. Also, her team was on time.
The bridal party flowers were amazing. I couldn't keep my eyes off of how beautiful the flowers were and the girls bouquets were exquisite. I loved my peonies bouquet. She delivered the flowers to us 8:30 am and they lasted till after the wedding. At the end of the night my wedding bouquet looked as good as she had delivered it to me. I was shocked because usually by the end of the wedding the brides bouquets don't look too good. I heard so many complements about the flowers and how it made my wedding very elegant. People are still talking about how beautiful my wedding was. I highly recommend Yasmin, she will truly make your wedding beautiful and she does all this in your budget. She also did the flowers for my wedding cake and it turned out beautiful. I had doubts and fears before seeing all of the flowers, but when I saw everything on my wedding day I was shocked. I am still amazed at how beautiful everything turned out. I would not change anything if I had the chance to go back.

First off, planning a wedding that took place in Mill Valley, CA from NYC is no easy task given that picking flowers for a wedding is a very visual task.. But Yasmin took on the challenge and worked with me every step of the way to make the bouquets, flower arrangements, pomanders, and bouts look PERFECT for my wedding.

Regarding time, she responded very quickly in our email exchanges and listened (read) very carefully to any requests I had in terms of flower types, colors, vase types to best match the site and concept (modern, whimsical). Given that my background is in architecture, I was extremely detail oriented, and Yasmin was so patient to listen to everything. We must have had over 100 email exchanges (she is quite patient!).

When we finally met a couple days before the wedding, I felt so comfortable as she is so cheerful and sweet She also went above and beyond to get the vases from IKEA that I liked (making several trips), looking for the ribbon color that was just right, and making these balloon weights out of fabric and rocks that she provided.

Regarding my bouquet. Given that there are many shades of oranges and the particular flower I wanted was out of season early, she came up with a brilliant new plan to use orange tulips among white peonies for my bouquet. The finishing touches of the green berries and hen feathers worked perfectly with our wedding theme. The construction of the bouquet was flawless.

Table arrangements. Her selection of fthe types of flowers matched perfectly to the color (redding orange is not an easy color to work with). Orange has a way to look very fall-ish, but she really made it look bright and springy. Her arrangement was simple and flawless.

In regards to the corsages and bouts, they looked so awesome. She was very careful in the way she constructed the bouts and wrapped them. For the parents bouts, she included these arabica flowers that we picked out last minute at the flowermarket, and put it together with the orange tulips and berries beautifully! It looked gorgeous on my mom and unique from any other corsage I've seen. Not to mention, she also helped put on the corsages and bouts on my parents, grandmother, and groomsmen--and that personal attention from florists is rare from what I hear.

All in all, I highly recommend Yasmin, especially to those that have a particular vision--b/c she can really make it happen on a budget. Even my wedding coordinator at the site made a remark on how amazing my florist was, as she stayed to help set up the reception room beyond just the flowers, and stayed after the ceremony to place the chairs and pomanders (that were adorable!) inside.

Yasmin comes highly recommended by an abnormally detail oriented Bride. Thank you Yasmin!

Ps- My grandmother in law took a table arrangement home with her to Ohio, and the flowers lasted over a month. She called them magic flowers.

I have been meaning to write this review since the day of my wedding, but wanted to have some pictures to prove how simply amazing Yasmin's work is. The moment I met with her, I knew I wanted to work with her. She was very easy to talk to and spent a lot of time getting to know me and understanding what I liked and didn't like. I really know nothing about flowers, so I put a lot of faith in Yasmin's expertise. Leading up to the wedding, Yasmin and I exchanged many emails (I would hear from her within a couple of hours each time). Towards a couple of weeks before, I decided to add some more arrangements and had some changes I wanted. Yasmin and I spent 2 hours on the phone and even met up at the Flower Mart to pick out some things. She had gone way above and beyond what I would ever had expected from her. It was natural for her, she genuinely cared! So, now to the wedding...my flowers actually turned out better than I could have imagined. Each arrangement was made with some much care and attention to detail and it clearly showed. The table arrangements were exactly what I had wanted (yet, better).

I would not think twice about recommending Yasmin to do any floral arrangement. She is truly an artist and is such a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much Yasmin, for helping my day so beautiful!

Yasmin recently did the flowers for my wedding. She was great to work with. She helped me to come up with an ordder that fit right into my budget. She did extra things for me that were not even included in my order, free of charge, like decorating my wedding cake. The bouquets came out beautiful. The only problems I had was that the flowers she gave me for my hair were not sturdy ones (sweet peas) and they had to be taken out mid-reception because they had wilted. Other than that I was very happy with her services and would recommend her to others. Thanks Yasmin!

Yasmin was incredible! I called her a week before we eloped and she provided the most amazing flowers, with just a few days of prep. Also she worked with silks at my request which was something she normally doesn't do. She had some great and creative ideas of what she could do for me, because the flowers were going to be traveling many hours in the car. Because of the limited amount of time that went into the planning on my part, I felt totally relaxed that Yasmin would take care of all the details that I was going to miss and she took care of them with great ease. I will be highly recommending her to all my friends and colleagues. Fabulous work, Yasmin and Wildflower Event Florals!

Hi. I was extremely pleased to find such a treasure as Yasmin. I had interviewed many, many, many florist and nobody compares to her demeanor and pricing. Yasmin is very professional and cares a lot about what she does. This is not just her job it's her passion and it shows. She became a huge part of my wedding. She was there for me with advice when I needed it, even if it didn't pertain to flowers. I was very particular on having peonies in my bouquet. They are my favorite flower! I know they can be expensive, so just having them in the bouquet would cut down on cost. My wedding landed in between the season, where peonies ended locally and just before the import season started. Yasmin bent over backwards to give me my dream bouquet. This was such a blessing. No other vender would do this, she truly is a gem. I didn't have to worry with her design execution. I had a vision of the center pieces and when she made me the "sample" I was amazed! It was perfect. Better than I dreamed. All of my flowers were fresh. Yasmin was not only my florist, but she became my friend. She also went far beyond her job description and helped me out in other areas of my event. I am so glad I found her and decided to go with her. Not only does she truly care about your big day, but she is fair. She is not going to charge you an arm and a leg. She is reasonable and empathic to your budget. She is also very responsive and will get back to you via e-mail or phone in a flash. Yasmin is very creative and will help give you ideas. Which is great when you are planning so many things at once. I can tell you how great she is, you'll just have to trust my opinion... :) Thank you sooo much for make my big day beautiful!

I am very glad to have used Wildflower Event Florals for my wedding. Working with the owner Yasmin has been an absolute pleasure. When I first met with her, I had a basic idea of the look I desired but was unsure of what flowers to use, and I was very indecisive. With Yasmin's help, simplicity proved to be the most beautiful elegance.
Yasmin took the time to understand well what I like. She brought pictures and magazines and showed me a variety of designs and types of flowers that would work best for my color theme and tight budget. We bounced ideas and with a week's notice she arranged my flowers. She designed striking boutonnieres and was able to capture my vision for my bouquet and my maid of honor's. Using three shades of vibrant red roses, accented by pink cymbidium orchids, she created stunning bouquets. For my maid of honor, she kept the same concept but added more of the pink orchids. For the stems, she wrapped them with ivory satin ribbon, and she suggested using a leftover piece of lace from my bridal gown (a very lovely detail). She finished the wrap with pearl pins. The combination of flowers and design were exquisite! I received several compliments. In addition, she was so gracious to wait for my cake to be delivered , and she decorated it beautifully.

I highly recommend Yasmin's floral arrangements. Not only is she a sweet, friendly professional, she is most importantly extremely talented, flexible, diligent, and very easy to work with. She strives to ensure her clients' satisfaction and her professionalism and creativity are priceless. Because of her creation, my wedding day was even more special.

Yasmin was very professional and conscientious. She had lots of great ideas and was very willing to work within my limited budget. She made suggestions for ways to save money without losing quality. And, she experimented all week prior to the wedding to make sure the flowers were satisfactory to her high standards. She was very concerned about keeping my hydrangeas from wilting and did a great job with that. Yasmin was very responsive to my emails and phone calls and was easy to work with. She helped with additional decor of gazebo without charging me.

Only small issue I had was that the bouquets were not ready when we needed to take photos. But, that's because she was re-hydrating the hydreangeas which were starting to droop.

I would highly recommend Yasmin for any future brides.

I absolutely loved working with Wildflower Event Florals and give them my highest recommendation! They were professional, helpful, responsive and creative, and most importantly, the decorations at my wedding were gorgeous. Our photographer, who has been in the wedding business for years asked for our florist's card because he was so impressed.

I was not the typical bride who has known exactly what I wanted since kindergarten, and Yasmin, the owner, was fine with that. She helped us define a vision for our wedding by listening carefully to what my husband and I both liked and then made suggestions to help bring it all together. She was also great about staying within our (fairly modest) budget and didn't try to upsell us at all, as most every other vendor we met with tried to do. In fact, she came up with creative ways to stretch our money, such as taking the flower arrangements from the Chuppah and moving them into a predetermined place in the reception. The decor still looked wonderful and we spent what we had anticipated spending.

I can't say enough about Wildflower Event Florals and suggest you call them. Yasmin worked with us in a comprehensive and accommodating manner every step of the way and even came to us to pick up the vases when we were done! Plus, she is friendly and helpful.
Best wishes with your big day!!
