An Octopus's Garden Floral Design and Event Coordination
Timi and the florists at An Octopus's Garden are great! Our wedding was on 10/15/11 and we came in from out of state to have our wedding in Las Vegas. I never had the pleasure of meeting them in person cause they took care of everything for me over the phone and via email! They provided me with beautiful dyed blue dendrobium orchids in a glass cylinder with gems and LED lights for the tables as well as a Peruvian Lilie toss bouquet that were all delivered the morning of our wedding to the reception venue. I would definitely recommend An Octopus's Garden to anyone getting married in Las Vegas!
I choose Timi at An Octopus Garden to do our flowers because when I spoke to her and explained what I wanted she seemed to listen to me and get excited with me (not a common trend with other florists’ I spoke to ….you do weddings all the time, but I sure don’t!)
Timi was really helpful, even when I changed my mind! She worked to my budget and even came in just under! She was very helpful with flower suggestions to achieve the theme I was going for and she emailed loads of info through. When I ordered the wrong type of corsage, she sent one of the girls over to fix it for us straight away – on the wedding day! I couldn’t believe how amazing she was. And of course, the flowers were just stunning on the day! Even our Photographer (Mindy Bean) and our makeup artist (Francesca Lombardo) said how unique and pretty the flowers were. I would recommend them in a heart-beat!

Timi was awesome in helping me plan the centerpieces for our wedding reception. I found her on this site and after looking at her website immediately called her and got down to business. I could not have been more pleased with the service I received. Since we are in Michigan and we having our wedding in Las Vegas I was nervous about trying to talk about flowers over the phone but Timi put me at ease. She had previously worked with our reception location before and before the end of the day she had everything worked out with them regarding the delivery and pick up of our flowers.
When I walked into our venue I was really pleased with the look of the space. The only thing that wasn't what I expected was that we had talked about doing floating candles, but I believe that candles weren't allowed in the space, so the centerpieces had glass beads in the bottom with LED candles under them so the whole vase was glowing, which was way better than what we had originally planned.
I don't plan on having another wedding reception in Vegas, but if I did I would I gladly go to Timi and An Octopus's Garden again!
Timi was wonderful! We called over ten florists, but she stood out immediately as being the most enthusiastic, helpful, knowledgeable, AND accommodating in terms of cost! Our flowers were beautiful the day of, it was very easy working with her, and she was super helpful about anything--extremely flexible, even when we had to make a few changes here and there. We HIGHLY recommend An Octopus Garden!

Comment: I ordered a flower arrangement, "designer's choice" "something unique" for my BFF's birthday. When I called her she was thrilled and emailed me a picture of one of the most unusual and beautiful arrangements I have seen. Using bamboo stalks, ginger stems, dark red roses, etc - the arrangement is fabulous and will be remembered for years to come. Great work!!!
I used an Octopus's Garden for my centerpieces on 4/9/09 wedding. I had a very limited budget but Timi was very helpful and willing to work with very little. When I walked into the reception, I was so shocked at how fabulous the centerpieces came out! I had a Vegas theme and she did a great job capturing that, using beautiful red roses, feathers, and great vases. She also matched my ceremony flowers (that came with Mandalay Bay package), beautifully. It was a seemless and polished look. I was very pleased with An Octopus's Garden and highly recommend them.
The staff was great a very helpful. The price was very good so I shouldn't be upset, but I was hoping for a little bit more in my bridesmaids flowers. My bouquet was wonderful!
An Octopus's Garden made my ceremony site at Mt. Charleston gorgeous! I received many compliments on my personal flowers and the decor. As an out of town bride, Timi and Jamie took great care of me and were able to set my mind at ease. They were very organized, listened to what I wanted, met with me at the venue, and communicated the plans & the cost break down very clearly through emails and a few phone calls. Everything was perfect, and then were a pleasure to work with! ...at the end of the event they sent out a crew to break it all down, and then they set up another beautiful event for me the next day at the Mandalay Bay Events center! The flowers looked great the 2nd day, and were adapted to suit the stlye of the new venue. Well worth the cost :) View photos at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/melaniekassem/tags/flowers/
