Ah Perfect Petals Floral & Decor
Kari & her team did a great job on our flowers! My husband and I could not have been more pleased!
I gave Kari free range because I had seen her work before and she did not disappoint! She made a mini bouqet of mine for my daughter and the "bling" that I asked for in the bouqet as well as the holder was absolutely spectacular - it sparkled and looked absolutely amazing as well as all the coursages and boutiners were fabulous.
I couldn't have been happier with the service I received. I live up in the okanagan so I thought it would be difficult ordering from so far away.... they were so oraganized and flexible and made sure I got everything I needed. Not only was everything affordable, the quality was top notch! If I had to do it over again I would have ordered EVERYTHING from ahperfectpetals! The rental company here in the okanagan does not even compare the outstanding service we received from you. Thank you for being a part of our special day!
She was a nice lady and her work was great. The only issue was that she was not on time before the wedding and late after the wedding for the clean up. We had guests showing up and she was still doing our running aisle.
Vendor response to review
The client herself was also very nice. I was early for both the set up and both the take downs (ceremony & reception). At the reception I did run a bit longer as I ran the aisle runner longer then had planned and had to tape it to all the stairs. Yes guests did show up but many well before the bride had told me to even be there, and that was a shock to me and the venue staff. It's always hard to work with people walking on what you are doing.
When I arrived back to take down at the ceremony venue the groom had cut all my sashes off the chairs and threw them in the garbage, to which I have never been paid for even though I was told I would be compinsated for. Later in the evening when I arrived at the reception venue to pick up the venue staff told me everything was running late and it would be about an hour and I would have to wait, and I did I also had to wait for the majority of everyone to leave before I could move through the doors.
So I may have run a bit late at the set up but there was no way I was late at any other point.
Kari and her other staff are all absolutely amazing! Her decor and floral pieces were exactly what I wanted, and what we agreed upon. She was also very flexible and was able to work within my budget. I would definitely recommend her to every bride-to-be out there! If you're looking for someone to go over and above to get what you want, and still stay within your budget, Ah Perfect Petals is the way to go!
Amazing professional service! Ah Perfect Petals were able to help us out with last minute details for a wedding. Highly recommended!
Kari and her team were AMAZING!! the flowers and decor far exceeded our expectations and turned out perfect ... her input and suggestions were so helpful! We initially hired her for flowers and quickly discovered she could do so much more, she did our chair covers, table decor, centre peices and more. Highliy recommended! Thank you so much for everything!
Kari & Crew were great! She listened to what we wanted and gave us artist options based on that. She was conscious of our concerns and ensured that it was taken into account during all her decisions. She worked for us, as if it were her own wedding, and she did a great job! Thanks, Kari!
Kari was fantastic! She made my vision more amazing than I ever thought it could be, and defiantly went above and beyond our expectations! Everything from the bouquets to the centerpieces was absolutely beautiful!
Kari at perfect petals was an angel sent from the wedding gods. Her willingness to listen and decifer what our vision was increadible. I wouldn't hire anyone else for any other event. She will be our go-to person for any event in the future. I have already recommended her to several people. Out of 5, she gets a 10!! Thanks Kari, you MADE our day.
Kari was an absolute dream to work with--we initially hired her to do only floral for our wedding but ended up having her do our chairs as well, and we could not have been happier with the final outcome. She created breathtakingly beautiful floral arrangements for the the weddingparty as well as the ceremony and reception facility that stayed fresh for days afterwards, however, what really set Kari apart was her exceptional level of customer service. She truly went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure that everything was perfect--she even went to our reception facility,tried on the chair covers to ensure they fit, and then sent us pictures of diffentent colored sashes to make sure we would get the color that best fit the room! Moreover, she didn't charge us an arm and a leg and her prices were exceptionally reasonable and budget friendly compared to other florists we contacted.
On a personal level, Kari was reliable, friendly, personable, and without pretention. She was extremely easy to work with and actually made wedding planning exciting and fun. She is, without a doubt, worth every penny and I can not say enough good things about her!
Thank you Kari for sharing your talent and setting such a beautiful scene for our special day!
Kari did an amazing job in fulfilling all my dreams and wishes! She actually went out of her way by growing my favorite flowers and making a hand corsage for me as I was not too keen on a bouquet. She arrived at the time we agreed on! The preparations were perfect and all my guests loved it! I would recommend Ah, Perfect Petals to all my friends. In fact, I have already started!
Kari and the whole Ah Perfect Petals team was absolutly awesome! i left absolutly everythign to her, i just picked out the colours and gave her an idea of what i wanted and she just rolled with it. i couldnt have imagined a better looking reception and im soooo happy that i had her do my wedding. She went above and beyond what ihired her to do, sending me emails mid week asking me how im doing in this whole process and making sure that me personally was ok and not on the brink of bridezilla. Kari is the best, and i will tell all freinds and family that are getting married to use her.
I just loved the decoration! It exceeded my expectations! Thank you Kari and your wonderful team!
Ah Perfect Petals gave me the most beautiful wedding day ever. The bouquets and floral decorations turned out as I had pictured in my mind, and the praises and comments received from guests and family members were overwhelming. Being an indecisive bride, Kari helped me focus on achieving my vision and helped me stay within budget. She is very passionate about her work and I couldn't have asked for more. It was great pleasure working with Ah Perfect Petals and I highly recommend them to future brides-to-be!
Kari was AMAZING as the florist for our wedding. She was incredibly quick to reply to my questions, and took my ideas and made them happen beautifully.
She came to set up the flowers before the wedding, and some of my friends (who were also setting up) thought she was a friend of mine that they hadn't met because she was so friendly with everyone there and was taking so much care with the flowers.
The flowers were awesome -- just what I was looking for and at a great price. Thank you, Kari and Ah Perfect Petals!
Great service and on time
Ah perfect petals accomodated for everything I wanted... Kari and her team went beyond the call of duty for decorating my reception room. They were even there last minute to help out with last minute decorations. i couldn't have asked for a better team. they made everything PERFECT. It was an honor to use AH Perfect Petals. would definately be calling them again for future events...
THank you so much AH PERFECT PETALS words can not express how thank ful we are for making our day very special.... thank you thank you
Ah Perfect Petals provided chair covers and sashes for our wedding (including set up and take down.) Kari was reliable and accommodating, and the chair covers and sashes were beautiful - I couldn't have asked for better! I would definitely recommend her services to anyone looking for reasonably priced, good quality chair covers.
Initially, Kari was great to deal with. Leading up to the wedding, things started to fall apart. She didn't have enough of the right flowers or the right colours of flowers for the bouquets. When we expressed our concern that the bouquets were not what we wanted, she broke down and completely lost all ability to problem solve. After complaining ad nauseum about how little sleep she had, her personal problems, and criticizing the wedding party for being "mean people", she agreed to make the necessary changes to the bouquets. On several occasions, she criticized other weddings and brides she was working for, as well as the wedding party to the wedding director. HIGHLY UNPROFESSIONAL. The day of the wedding, she was not prepared with the necessary help and completed the decorations for the ceremony and the reception minutes before guests arrived. In the case of the reception, she only completed the decorations with the help of guests of the wedding. All in all, she was unprepared, unprofessional, and created more stress and anxiety than was necessary. The day was perfect, but not because of Ah Perfect Petals. Would not recommend Kari and her team to anyone unless you plan to enlist the help of friends and family on your wedding day.
Ah perfect petals and Kari were absolutely perfect! I was extremely I impressed with how they brought my vision to life exactly how I envisioned it. They went out of their way to meet with me several times, even though they are extremely busy. They really took the time to get to know me, and I would absolutely recommend their services to any bride planning her perfect day. Ah Perfect Petals really stood up to their name. They were in deed perfect.
From a very satisfied and happy bride,

Kari was a life saver, she was effecient, diligent and extremely helpful with many aspects of our wedding. I would recomend her to any one I know.
I cannot say enough good things about Kari. She was extremely responsive, and always got back to me very quickly, regardless of how busy she was. She never reminded me that she had other weddings to work on and made me feel very well taken care of. By far my favourite vendor, she made everything really easy. She came to my house for the initial consultation, and dragged all the samples she had with her. She had lots of good ideas, but when she realized that we had specific things in mind, she went with it and didn't try to force her vision on us.
She encountered various disasters the day of the wedding, but she didn't let it affect the job she had to do. The chair covers were flawless, with not a wrinkle to be seen. The sashes were tied to perfection and everything was completed comfortably within the timeline.
Book with Kari, it will be the best wedding decision you make!
Vendor response to review
You made me cry when I read the review how nice, thank you so very much. I am going to print this page and give it to a wedding planner I am meeting this weekend who asked me "are you dependable?".
Than you again. Hope to chat again, enjoy your new house!
Kari was excellent as our florist. She went well beyond what we expected! We expected for the price we paid that she would bring the flowers and help us distribute them to the wedding party and also bring the few extra flowers I ordered for us to do what we wanted with. (We were creating our own centrepieces). When she determined what the plan was with the centrepieces, she proceeded to help place the flowers in their designated locations and decorated the cake with a flower topper. Everything was beautiful and I was extremely happy with her attitude and level of service.
The flowers were absolutely stunning and far exceeded my expectations. They were gorgeous and Kari was really able to capture "me" in the floral design. I'd have to say that my bouquets were probably one of my favourite parts of my wedding day. I loved the little touches, everything from the beautiful hand wrapped ribbon to the the flower picks and "bouquet bling". I am keeping them forever and will hopefully get to put them to use in my daughters bouquet one day!
I found Kari to be professional and her quality of work was beautiful. Her costs are very reasonable and she will work with your budget to get you what you want. I would highly recommend Kari!!!
To Whom It May Concern,
Kari Beaudoin and I met in early March 2007 to begin floral planning for my wedding. In the beginning stages of planning my wedding I was a little overwhelmed with all that needed to be done. Our first conversation, I am sure she heard the worry and excitement in my voice. Kari immediately put me at ease. I had no idea what flowers I wanted and had so many visions of my wedding. Kari assured me she would help me put my wants and needs into perspective. I was, for lack of better words, a nutcase. Kari spoke with such empathy and confidence I knew at that moment she would be my florist.
Our first meeting she invited me and my now husband to her home. Kari showed us magazines and her portfolio and helped me combine all my ideas into one vision for our day. Kari took both mine and my husbands wants and put them into affect.
Kari also helped me in different aspects of the wedding. She helped me find a caterer and also got me in contact with a photographer. She took on all the decorations with a chair covers, table settings and an archway. Kari also ended up help with much the planning as well.
We were able to depend so much on Kari in all aspects of the wedding, even helping with planning the songs and the ceremony schedule. We are so pleased with all the services provided by Kari. If we had to do it all over again, Kari would definitely be my first call.
Cara A Doubt
I recently hired Kari Beaudoin as the florist/decorator for my wedding this past July 21, 2007. She did many things for my wedding including bouquets, buttonholes, flower girl head pieces, floral arrangements, and setting up both the ceremony and reception sites which included chair covers, extra floral pieces, and putting out guest gifts and seating cards. She also transferred flowers and pillars from the ceremony to the reception.
I found Kari to be extremely organized as she completed all of her tasks efficiently and to a very high standard. Not only did Kari finish all of the multiple jobs required of her, but she also willingly gave ideas and suggestions of what she thought would work well and/or look good with the floral arrangements and decorations. As well, her bouquets and floral arrangements were fresh, beautifully arranged and delivered on time.
I would highly recommend Kari for any floral or decorating needs that you may have.

Wedding Floral Tips & Hints
To make your wedding ceremony and reception come alive with beauty, here are a few helpful tips and hints about how to choose your wedding flowers...
The first question you’ll probably have is; that there are so many florists out there...how do I choose the right one? And where do I begin to look? Look below to answer some of your questions…
Wedding Floral Tips & Hints #1
Here are some helpful tips & hints:
~Get at least 2 or 3 different estimates. Because choosing the right florist is choosing the one you get along with best and feel most comfortable with. You could use a florist that you either know or have been referred to by someone you trust or even your wedding planner.
~Bring pictures that you have out of magazines of styles, flowers, and ideas you like.
~Bring swatches of all the bridal party’s dresses. Also, bring a picture of your bridal gown. It will help with style of bouquets.
~Ask your florist if they have a portfolio of their work. Ask to see their portfolio of work they have done. If you like what you see go from there.
~Make sure they are available on your wedding date.
~Make sure your estimate is in writing. Clarify when getting an estimate that all costs are stated (i.e. some florists may only quote flower costs than add on extras such as wire, ribbon, delivery, set up, and break down later on).
~If you are ready to choose a florist, get a contract that spells out everything.
~When you put down a deposit, make sure you get a written receipt.
~When choosing the color of the flowers in your bouquet, think about your complexion. For example, pale brides may need to add some brighter blooms to prevent them from looking washed out.
~If you are having black and white pictures done, make sure you pick floral with deep, 3D shape that stand out well.
~Choose flowers that work well with the tone of your wedding. For example, orchids are perfect as the main bloom for an Oriental or Tropical theme.
~Check with your ceremony and reception venues as to any decorating restrictions they may have.
~Chose your wedding date carefully. Florists are very busy around Mother’s Day, Valentine’s Day, and Christmas. Your flowers WILL also cost more at these.
~If possible take your floral designer/consultant to view your ceremony and reception venues, so that they can design appropriate to the setting.
Wedding Floral Tips & Hints #2
The most important thing is, be up front. Let your florist know what kind of budget you have. They will work with you to keep it within what you can afford while being honest about what will look nice. They should be able to come up with ideas and maintain your overall color, style, and theme. They should understand you and your vision. For a tighter budget, utilize lots of candlelight to supplement the fresh flowers and to give your ceremony an elegant look.
Wedding Floral Tips & Hints #3
Still having some trouble deciding? If you’re still torn between several choices, you might want to consider the traditional means and significance of the flowers you’re considering. Pick the right emotion and set a theme for your wedding.
