The Flower Diva, INC
Carrie and staff are are by far the best florist in Charlotte! She has an amazing eye, is creative, fun and always excited to do anything for you with a smile! I loved my bouquet, the jewels and bling that she added were stunning! My girls bouquets and calla Lilly bouts were precious... Our church altar arrangements were gorgeous and exactly what I wanted!
Our tall pilsner hydrangea pale pink and pale green center pieces at the Charlotte City Club were absolutely perfect, floating candles with rosé petals- simply amazing! We loved everything and our guests raved about them! She added votives, bling and it was the romantic, elegant feel that I wanted for my day!
Brides- put your full trust in Carrie... she will not steer you wrong.....when she says you need linens to make something pop on a table---Put the extra money towards it, and you will be so thrilled! Carrie is an amazing person and has a phenomenal team! Highly highly recommended! thank you for making the planning process so much fun!

Carrie and her team are phenomenal! I a professional planner and on my wedding day I would not consider any florist other than The Flower Diva!
Thank you for the beautiful pieces, my bouquet was beautiful, the centerpieces were phenomenal and the altar arrangements very unique and they made the pictures look fantastic.
Thank you for everything!!
Carrie, The Flower Diva, is the best. I had nothing but compliments on my flowers all night long. They were beautiful.
I cannot express how amazing The Flower Diva is! When I arrived to our consultation, I didn't have a clue what I wanted for our wedding. I simply told Carrie what colors and flowers I loved, and she made gorgeous arrangements for our wedding. They couldn't have been more PERFECT for our special day. Everyone raved about how gorgeous the flowers, bouquets, arrangements, etc were. I will never use anyone but The Flower Diva!
The Flower Diva were fantastic!!! The arrangements were perfect and my bouquet was beautiful. They went above and beyond with our last minute changes and requests, we couldn't have been happier with them. I would highly recommend them.
Loved the creativity in the table center pieces. Loved how they were all different and how everything came together and looked in the room. Thank you so much for creating my dream wedding.
The Flower Diva assisted me in picking out the perfect flowers for my special day. They were very professional and affordable.
Carrie and her staff were so friendly and personable. They went above and beyond to help make our wedding perfect. Not to mention traveling from North Carolina to New York!! I was absolutely overwhelmed by such an amazing job they did!!
The Flower Diva has a great sense of color and gives great suggestions on what will work. She is very knowledgeable on all varieties of flowers. She is accommodating to your wishes and delivers on time.
I used wedding diva for a rehearsal dinner. The flowers were delivered and were nothing like what was talked about beforehand. Skimpy arrangements and not done to specification. Upon a call a couple of hours before the dinner they did come back out with more flowers and different containers and redeemed themselves. It was very stressful.

I was truly disappointed to read your review on The Wedding Wire. In stead of commending me on going above and beyond for you in your floral decor and not to mention letting you keep my vases over the weekend with no additional rental charges you homed in on the fact that a miscommunication problem occurred. I can show you my notes and pictures I sketched out for you to approve and they were all short and mounded and low so people could see over them to talk. It was nothing like what you ended up with and raved about. You signed the contract, you read the description and for you, to make it seem like it was all on my part the misunderstanding is misleading and far from the actual facts of the situation. Not to mention, I had to deal with your extremely rude friend that had nothing to do with the situation, I didn't sign a contract with her and lets talk about stressful!!!!
If I didn't care so much about my art I certainly would've never come back to redo and put all my profit into more flowers to make you happy. There was no mention of how beautiful the foyer piece was, or the other table arrangements or how I decorated the Mantle for free. Or how about how GORGEOUS your son and daughter-in-laws wedding was. It was one of the prettiest I've done at Providence CC.
But it's all good, I did my very best for you, above and beyond and I know that to be true in my heart and I remember the big hug and apologies and wonderful comments you gave to me the next week when you dropped off my vases. That is the client I will remember and appreciate that took notice of my hard work and need to please attitude.
Merry Christmas and Many blessings for the New Year!!!!!
Carrie--The Flower Diva
I had thought my comments were anonymous --I guess not! You can detract my comments if this is visible to others. I guess sometimes the bad sticks in your brain more than the good --looking back and how stressful it was for me and my husband walking into the Duke Mansion and seeing what I saw a couple of hours before my rehearsal dinner. It was nothing like what I had imagined. I apologize. I quickly filled out the questionnaire at work yesterday and I guess did not take enough time to mention all the good work you did at the wedding and I do mean that. And how you took the time to come back and make good of my rehearsal dinner. I never meant to hurt you or your business. If this comment is made public I hope you have a way of removing it. Again I apologize for my not thought out response.
The Flower Diva was absolutely the best! Professional, creative and most of all, very patient with our indecisiveness!
Carrie is the most fabulous florist ever! She not only did what I asked her too, she did more! I think I find new things every time I look at my pictures that she added just for me! I never once doubted my decesion of picking her. I knew she was the girl for me when I first met her and she understood everything I told her even better then I did! If you want amazing flowers at your wedding pick The Flower Diva!!!!!
The Flower Diva was great to work with. She was very creative with my limited budget. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a florist for any event
The Flower Diva was Amazing! All of the boquets were beautiful and exactly what I had imagined! She also provided the flowers for my sisters wedding and we have since recommended her to several friends! She's the Best!
The Flower Diva did an amazing job - going above and beyond to decorate the wedding site, making the whole look come together beautifully!
Excellent! I recommend The Flower Diva. We were very pleased!
Thank you for the details you added to my flowers. There are so many flower vendors out there that don't add those little touches. You however fit the flowers to the wedding and it was very much appreciated. My favorite was your addition of the hops to the boutiners for my husband. (since he does home brew beer) For anyone questioning the need for a florist I tell you to choose The Flower Diva! She knows her stuff!

I am soooo pleased that you noticed the hops in Cody's Boutineer!!! Wish I could have found fresh for you but the dried where kind of cool too!!!! Thanks for your great review and I can't wait to see pictures!!!!
I have nothing but praise for Carrie and her team. I could not be more please with the way everything turned out. From the beginning, she was professional, fun, and easy to work with. The flowers were beautiful, they came out exactly how I wanted them to, and I received many compliments from my guests.
I had a phantom of the opera wedding . Carrie and her staff are amazing . My flowers were truly amazing . i would highly recommend The flower diva to anyone . Her style is unique and her vision is amazing .
Quality of flowers was excellent. It is evident that Carrie loves what she does. I knew NOTHING about flowers and even considered not having any for my wedding (I don't really like flowers). The flowers that Carrie suggested and created were perfect and added a classy element to our wedding.
I had the worst exp. with this company... Carrie, the owner is very arrogant and rude. I made and appointment with them and when they made a scheduling "mistake" as she called it, they never apologized and were very unhelpful. I took a day off of work to meet with them and all she kept saying was it was a miss-communication.. I would have been happy to re-schedule if they would have apologized, but they never did. I simply made the comment in a non-rude way, that if they couldnt get the initial consultation right, that I would hate what they would do on my wedding day... Said have a good day and left. I received a nasty email from the owner, and quote....
"too bad" for you, Miss Dalton...you lost out on having the most fabulous flowers ever imaginable simply because you chose to be narrow minded and self-centered" and quote "
"I hope you never make a mistake or have any mis-communications in your life Miss Dalton so you won't have to be unfairly thought of or talked about when you don't deserve it."
I cannot imagine working with these people. So Brides beware...
Carrie did an amazing job on the flowers for our wedding. Everyone commented on how gorgeous they were. During the planning process, she made excellent suggestions that added to the beauty of the day. She suggested that we use herbs in the bouquets and it was perfect. She also suggested that we rent these fantastic candelabras that she owns. We used them at the alter, and they were more cost effective than floral arrangements and set the perfect mood. But our centerpieces were my favorite. Each one was different and, again, perfectly matched the surrounding at the venue. She really knows what she is doing! Thanks, Flower Diva!!!
Carrie from Flower Diva is amazing! My flowers were beyond what I could have ever expected. I asked for something specific and Carrie went way above and beyond to provide me exactly what I wanted. My flowers arrived fresh, in water and smelling beautifully :) Carrie is also extremely pleasant to work with. She does whatever needs to be done to make sure YOU are happy. I received tons and tons of compliments on my bouquet as well as my bridesmaids bouquets. Thank you Carrie for providing exceptional customer service and outstanding/beautiful/phenomenal bouquets/flowers.
WHAT BEAUTIFUL FLOWERS!!!!!! They were on time and the colors we magnificent!!!
The Flower Diva and her crew are top notch!! I met with a few other florists but no one could compare to the Flower Diva!! She is so easy to work with. She has great ideas and is not afraid to take some risks! I felt completely at ease knowing she was taking care of all my floral needs. All of the flowers were fresh and smelled wonderful. Also, I have received nothing but compliments on my table centerpieces! She was able to incorporate my manzanita branches into the design and it came out better than I had planned! Flower Diva rocks!!! Look no further!!
I had a very specific bouquet in mind, so I went to the Flower Diva and asked them if they could replicate it for me. They were able to create for me the bouquet of my dream! I was so happy with the job that they did, and the excellent job they did creating bouquets for my bridesmaids and flower girl. The bouquets were fresh and beautiful, and we also paid a great price.
I really didn't know what I wanted as far as the flowers. I had a large wedding party so flowers could get really expensive! Flower Diva was able to provide excellent options that were within my budget. I knew that I wanted something bright and colorful! Bright pinks, oranges, yellows. I was thrilled with what they come up with. My bouquet had vivid pink and orange roses. Bright gerber daisies were used for the centerpieces. I was happy with the way everything came together.
Love Flower Diva.. She makes the most beautiful flowers ever! I am always excited when my brides hire her. It makes for the best pictures ever!
I am always excited when I know the wedding or event has employed The Flower Diva! I know the venue will look fantastic!! They are wonderful to work with and their creations are great!
