Great Flowers posted 10/22/2013

I ordered flowers for my entire bridal party, they were delivered on time and efficiently. Emerald City also did the decor for my ceremony. Everything looked great, and they picked everything up afterwards. They are a vendor you paid a little more for, but you don't need to worry about them at all. One less headache, totally worth it.

we went to Emerald panicking, 5 months before our wedding after a DISASTEROUS expierence with another florist. The staff here was beyond professional, helpful and willing to help us envision our day. We ended up going a completely different direction than the other florist's design and cannot imagine our wedding any other way! We also used their referrals on our band and videographer and were very pleased. I cannot give Emerald City designs enough praise!!! Their day of coordinators were spot on as well- always at beck and call to help us with anything and were amazing at directing our day so that we could enjoy it!

Wonderful! posted 5/16/2012

Although the package that came from my venue did not quite cover everything, the staff was wonderful and knowledgeable, and precise in every detail!

Beautiful flowers posted 7/15/2014

Our flowers were gorgeous and exactly what I wanted. The staff was helpful. I used Emerald city Designs because it was a package deal with my venue. We had to purchase 3 bridesmaid bouquets, 4 boutonnieres, and 2 corsages that weren't included and it came to well over $500.

While I do believe they do exceptional work and was very impressed at my initial meeting, I was disappointed when my vision was not executed properly. Two weeks before my wedding, I submitted my final payment. After that date, I wrote my contact person, Nicole, asking to change a few of the table arrangements to accommodate cancelled guests. I did not even receive the courtesy of a response. Also, my wedding coordinator had made several attempts to reach Emerald City Designs to arrange floral delivery and set-up times, but again, received no response. The day of my wedding, my mother’s corsage died before pictures even began. My now husbands boutonniere was brown before photos began. Also, my bridesmaids bouquets, which were hydrangeas, didn’t even last to make it to cocktail hour. I was also informed later, embarrassingly, by a few of my guests that my center pieces had wilted flowers and the hydrangea did not appear to as “fresh” as they should have.

I felt as though once my balance was paid in full, I was no longer important and I received any flowers they had lying around and not the beautiful full arrangements I had viewed at my table preview. Finally, I did not even receive a follow up from ECD letting me know I was paid in full and there had been no damage to any of their rented items. I sent Nicole and email asking for such and reviewed a one-sentence response stating it was paid in full and would this be sufficient.

Good posted 5/15/2012

I had a good experience with them. They are pretty pricy, but it was worth it because they do so many things and it was worth paying for less stress on my own. Their office and showroom are amazing and they have plenty of options to choose from. They really know what they're doing. My bouquet fell apart halfway through the day, which was upsetting but that's the only complaint on my part.

Made my dreams come true! posted 1/26/2012

I am so happy to have contacted Emerald City Designs for my wedding planning. Nicole B. and the whole staff worked seamlessly with my venue and created an event like no other. We got married on NYE, and the staff stayed to break down the ceremony space and create an beautiful lounge area. I could have asked for nothing more! Oh, and the staitonary was impeccable!!! Thank you a million times!!

Speechless posted 9/30/2011

All I can say is THANK YOU! I used ECD for my shower at the Royal Park Hotel conservatory and my wedding at the Royal Park Hotel ballroom. Both events are still being raved about. my shower was beautiful but my wedding was what left me speechless. Nicole is the best. I spoke with her and expressed my specific vision for my wedding florals and rentals and she was very encouraging and full of her own ideas. Bottom line is that the decor at my wedding was exactly what I wanted. The decor over the dancefloor was very unique, a combination of branches, crystals with open roses hanging from them, and glowing votive candles hanging in whimsical glass containers. I can't even describe it I just wish I could post a pic!
Thanks you ECD
Lindsay and Brett

Breathtaking! posted 7/13/2011

We worked with Nicole B. the most. She was one of the sweetest individuals we've met. She was so good about making sure every little detail was in place and that things ran smoothly the day of. She was helpful beyond words. The flowers were INCREDIBLE they took my breath away. They were absolutely perfect and how I had pictured them. They made the ceremony and reception room gorgeous. They also made our programs and they turned out wonderful too (of course)! If you can afford them I highly recommend them they will make your dreams come true and ensure a truly unforgettable day or you and all who attend.

Perfect! posted 7/13/2011

They sent pictures of the flowers for my approval earlier in the week and the flowers still blew me away on the day of. They lasted all day without a sign of wilting!

Extremely talented designers posted 3/18/2011

I really enjoyed working with Emerald City Designs. They were extremely knowledgable and came up with some designs for my bouquet and the trellis at our wedding that were absolutely beautiful. My only real complaint is that the centerpieces they showed me ahead of time at their showroom that were supposed to be exactly what my centerpieces would look like, were more extravagant than what I ended up getting. I felt like for the price I should've had the centerpieces they showed me and not a scaled down version. Also the corsages for the moms/grandmas were very small for the price. That aside, everything was very beautiful and arrived on time and I coudn't have asked for a better bridal bouquet. I would recommend them but caution that you might get something a little different than you were expecting.

This was a fantastic vendor to work with. David has amazing talent. He and his staff exectued my vision that I had for my wedding with perfection. It was so nice to go to one place for EVERYTHING and ANYTHING from invitations to linen, flowers, and chairs. Its a one stop shop. Made me very at ease to know that one vendor was taking care of everything! They were very mindful of my budget as well. I would reccomend Emerald City Designs to family members and friends who are soon to Wed!

not worth it posted 8/25/2010

I used Emerald City Designs. At the time we thought we were getting a deal because they knocked some off the price, but that also knocked out the service and the quality. We had sat down and planned out what flowers I liked and the colors I wanted, and I didn't get either in the end result. When I went in a few days before the wedding to see what they had for my centerpieces, they weren't even close to what I expected, but they said they weren't able to get the flowers I wanted, so I just said it was fine and left disappointed. I never really cared that much about the flowers for the big day anyway. My priorities were the groom, the food, the dress, and the photographer...and all of that did not disappoint! Flowers were all just filler for the pictures. Although I had some 'nice' feedback at the reception, I was not pleased with the overall look. I could have done what they did. It wasn't worth the money. They make the showrooms look so beautiful, but when it comes to returning calls, ordering the flowers they discuss with you, designing something you request, and being polite to the customers that have already paid their money, they are less than thrilling. I would never recommend them to anyone.

They did a very nice job on my wedding flowers. The bouquets were beautiful and everything was delivered as expected. The cost was a little over the top for what we ordered, but everything looked great.
