Bella Fiori is the Best!Reviewed on 4/09/2014 Tina P
After interviewing a really downright snob of a florist, we got in touch with Roberta at Bella Fiori Flowers and what a pleasure she was! From the beginning, she concerned herself on how to make this wedding about US and look like US. She incorporated centerpieces my mother made and matched the accessories exactly. She listened and met with us twice to go over our selections and each time with a smile and a hug. Our wedding coordinator even said when she sees Roberta walking through the door, she lets out a sigh of relief. If you want a personal and friendly experience, Bella Fiori is the way to go! Thank you Roberta! You made our wedding beautiful!

I absolutely would recommend this place!
Beautiful Flowers!Reviewed on 9/23/2013 Chelsea C
Roberta was great to work with and in constant communication throughout the planning process. We met several times and she really understood my vision for the big day. The bouquets were stunning and the use of floating candles in my reception room gave everything is a beautiful glow. She had great suggestions throughout the planning process and was very agreeable to changes in my contract. She is very affordable and does phenomenal work for being just a little florist shop in Sykesville. I believe she has just one other person who helps her create all the centerpieces and set up on the day. I was very impressed!
Based on current reviews, I was really disappointed in the result of my flowers and quality of service I received from Bella Fiori. I didn't send too many emails, but the ones I did went without a response after several weeks and follow-up emails. My phone calls/voice mails were also not returned. When I initially booked Bella Fiori I met with an assistant who I assume is no longer with the company. The assistant took all the notes on what I wanted the flowers to look like, but these were clearly overlooked. I wanted a cascading style bouquet and when the bouquet came the day of the wedding (with a different assistant) my bouquet was a very heavy, perfectly round bouquet. I texted Roberta and told her of the issue and she told me the assistant would handle it. I'm sure the assistant tried her best, but the end result was just a bunch of ivy coming out of a bouquet. Not what I pictured at all. Also at the initial meeting the previous assistant offered flower wands for my flower girls, which I thought was a great idea. I told my 6 and 3-year-old girls about these wands and they were really excited to wave them down the aisle. However, the NIGHT before my wedding Roberta texted me and said it wouldn't be possible with the flowers she ordered for me. To me this, combined with the bouquet mix up, indicates that she clearly did not review the notes thoroughly or attempt to clarify anything with me prior to the night before. We also had growlers as centerpieces which we took to her location a month before the wedding. The growler centerpieces looked great, but one mysteriously went missing. This was problematic because the growlers were also meant to serve as table numbers. My mom contacted Roberta after the wedding to let her know how everything went. Roberta refunded the bridal bouquet and one centerpiece, but even that was weeks after she said she would.
Wow, just wow! I can't say enough about Roberta and her whole staff! I knew Roberta was good after seeing her flowers at my cousins wedding in 2016 but she outdid herself for our wedding September 16th 2017. She knew exactly what I had envisioned and helped me pick specific flowers and decor for each centerpiece. The best part is that Roberta added small little details that other florists wouldn't do to make my wedding special. She added a Broach to my bridal bouquet to make it sparkle. One of the corsages fell off before the ceremony and luckily, Roberta added another corsage in the bundle JUST IN CASE. Roberta was always a text or phone call away if something needed to be changed or moved around. We also got the chargers, uplighting and chairs from her to make the room pop. She went above and beyond to make our wedding day special and I will recommend her to anyone who is looking for a florist in the DC metro area.
I would recommend going elsewhere for flowers...They were very nice at the first meeting however the main focus was not on the flowers and what colors and types it was all about how to set things up and the visuals...they also would try to tell me what fit my vintage theme(which was clearly not fully understood and they did not allow me to correct or explain my theme in better detail) We were given less than a month to review and commit to a contract-I understand deadlines but my wedding is more than 6months away...we asked for a little longer so we could go over some details with the venue and they gave us 5 extra days. at the meeting we were still trying to figure out the budget for flowers and were told each item is a line item we could take things off and work around things so that we could stay in our budget...I already have bouquets and did not need to buy them and when we asked to take them off and inquired about cutting down costs with flower type or size(using more greens less blooms, in season flowers only ECT) in the center pieces we were told "we can't work with you because your budget is too low" this being said we had requested that they call us to go over a few questions and discuss what we were looking for in more detail...they never called or attempted to go over the questions with us via email. In addition they sent the contract to me a week later than promised and would go for days without responding to emails. I know that people are busy (so are we!) but I still expect some level of professionalism.
We cannot say enough great things about Bella Fiori! Roberta was an absolute pleasure to work with. After our first mock up session, she took our feedback and went above and beyond to bring our vision to life for our special day - she is a true artist. HIGHLY recommended!
AMAZING!!!!!! EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS!Reviewed on 9/22/2015
Roberta from Bella Fiori was truly amazing, and everything she did completely exceeded my expectations. Prior to choosing Bella Fiori, I met with 5 other florists who wanted to charge me more than double of what Roberta quoted me. For our wedding at the Grand Historic Venue on Sept 11, 2015, Roberta provided us with beautiful full bouquets, boutonnieres, high and low centerpieces in lovely vases/containers, and the most beautiful Chuppah and aisle decorations that I have ever seen at a wedding. So many of our guests complimented me on the flowers. She really transformed our venue. We also got beautiful tablecloths from Roberta. The wedding planning process was a little stressful, but working with Roberta was a breeze. She was always responsive and patient with me, and I could not be happier that I chose to go with Bella Fiori. I cannot recommend this vendor highly enough!!
Nice flowers, mediocre serviceReviewed on 8/25/2015 Lauren K
We selected Roberta because we saw pictures of a beautiful alter arch she had made that we liked, and because she was very reasonably priced for all that she offered. Communication leading up to the wedding was tough. We had to follow up with her several times to get her to respond when we had questions (her follow up was not terrible, but it stood out in contrast to most of our vendors who were super responsive). Most frustrating was that she sent an incorrect invoice three different times that omitted things we had ordered - we had to review each one to send back corrections, and were nervous that we wouldn't actually receive what we ordered on the wedding day. Ultimately, we did get everything we ordered, but I felt like I had to put in extra time to always double check her work. The table arrangements were beautiful and full, and just as we planned. We got many compliments on them. And the floral arch that she made as a backdrop to the ceremony was gorgeous. However, a couple of the corsages and boutonnieres were pretty wilted, and my bouquet had visible strands of glue from where a succulent had been glued in. I would say the quality of her work was very good, but not flawless. I still feel like it was a good value for what we received. She included many things for free. I would recommend Bella Fiori flowers to anyone who is willing to spend a little more time on email follow up in exchange for a good deal on nice flowers.
BEAUITFULReviewed on 6/05/2015 Cori L
Our flowers were absolutely BEAUTIFUL! They allowed us to use all of their props and did not charge us extra!
Roberta at Bella Fiori did an absolutely amazing job for our wedding. Her work was stunning and we received so many compliments on how beautiful our flowers were- from the ceremony, to the bouquets, to the centerpieces and decor of our reception. She was easy to work with and clearly loves what she does and is GREAT at it. I came with a few ideas from pinterest and and idea of what I liked and she made it come to life- giving our event a romantic, gorgeous setting. Thank you again for all your hard work!
Exceeded Expectations!Reviewed on 3/09/2015 Jen R
I can not say enough wonderful things about Roberta at Bella Fiori Flowers! I was recently married on February 21, 2015 at Pier 5 Hotel and Roberta did such an amazing job designing my floral arrangements for the ceremony and reception. I came to her with a few ideas I found on pinterest and a smaller budget and she was still able to design beautiful bouquets and table arrangements using higher quality flowers. She was also able to provide linens, vases and charger rentals to really customize the design. Having flowers and linens come from the same vendor who was willing to set up everything made the day much less stressful. I am so grateful that I found her on this site because I couldn't have been happier with her floral design. At my budget she was able to give me tall table centerpieces when other florists told me I could only afford carnations. If you are looking for an amazing florist for your wedding you should call Bella Fiori Flowers!!
Bella FioriReviewed on 10/30/2014 Kirsten H
Roberta from Bella Fiori did a wonderful job on my wedding flowers. I brought in pictures and ideas for what I wanted and she came up with a plan for the flowers that was exactly what I was looking for. Everything was exactly as she described and I loved them. The only thing I had trouble with was getting responses to emails. On the other hand, she was very responsive to phone calls.
Roberta is awesomeReviewed on 10/07/2014 Erin O
Roberta is so sweet. She worked with our budget to give us the flowers we envisioned. The flowers showed up on time and were beautiful. we got a lot of compliments. Highly recommend.
Stunning and FriendlyReviewed on 8/24/2014 Carisa C
Roberta is an absolute angel. From our first visit, my then-fiance looked at me and said, "she's going to be my favorite vendor!" We had some incredible vendors, but Roberta kept that same level of service, professionalism, and artistry from start to finish. She was extremely easy to work with, despite several changes from pre-contract even until the day-of when circumstances out of my control affected number of arrangements needed. She was hands-down the most fair and flexible vendor we had, even refunding when total arrangements needed were less than planned (I never expected that, but how incredibly thoughtful of her!). The arrangements themselves... oh my god. Perfect. Simply perfect. They were everything I had imagined and more. Thank you, Roberta, for your impeccible artistry and friendly and fair demeanor. I hope there is a time in my life that I get to work with you again, but in the meantime, I will just look back at the pictures and smile.
"A magic fairy"Reviewed on 6/23/2014 Tenley B
I worked with Roberta at Bella Fiori and she's great. Our wedding coordinator (Beth and Antrim 1844) called Roberta "a magic fairy who comes in and makes everything beautiful" and she was right. She did all of our flowers (bouquets, boutonnieres, arbor flowers, centerpieces, ceremony aisle end decor) AND included linens all for less than other vendors we looked at. I didn't know what I wanted for flowers, she had a lot of photos of previous flowers she'd done and was able to give me suggestions based on the photos I liked. She even included an extra "tossing bouquet" (extra bridesmaid bouquet) so I didn't have to throw mine or any of my bridesmaids. I highly recommend Bella Fiori for your wedding, or other event, florist!
Beautiful!!Reviewed on 8/05/2013 Ogechi N
We found Roberta through our wedding planner. She listened patiently to our ideas and gave us her recommendations for both our budget and style. She was extremely professional and accommodating. Our ballroom was exquisitely done and tasteful! Thanks Roberta!!
5/11/13 WeddingReviewed on 6/02/2013 erin h
The decor for our wedding day was absolutely spectacular! From the first time I met with Roberta I knew Bella Fiori was the right choice for us. Everything from the bouquets to the centerpieces to the flowers for the cake were beautiful. And the value! Roberta made everything we wanted work within our budget at an amazing value. We couldn't have wanted anything more!
Stunning Flowers, Fantastic ServiceReviewed on 4/14/2013 Stephanie M
Roberta was fabulous. She was very friendly and helpful, taking my ideas and making them even better. She was very flexible when I wanted to add some large arrangements very close to the wedding, and they were beautiful. I LOVED my bright bouquet. It was perfect.
Best Florist Ever!Reviewed on 11/25/2012 Rachel M
Roberta was amazing and I highly recommend using Bella Fiori for your flowers. Roberta and her crew went above and beyond to make my wedding day so special. You won't be sorry if you choose Bella!
Simply put - HIRE HER!!!Reviewed on 11/07/2012 Jennifer E
Roberta and her team at Bella Fiori are top notch. I could not have been more pleased with her services. We actually met Roberta while she was showcasing her floral designs for an open house my venue was holding. I remember thinking that her flowers were some of the most beautifully displayed centerpieces I had ever seen. She took time speaking with us and even made personal recommendations for photographers that she had worked with in the past. I left thinking that she had to be ridiculously expensive. I was wrong! After reading so many wonderful reviews, many of which noted her value, I contacted her for a consultation. She was flexible and offered many suggestions. She did not even charge rental fees for the vases and candles, and even threw in a few extra items free of charge. She even worked with me on items that I had already purchased, in an earlier attempt to go the DIY route (bad idea!). She does much more than flowers and I ended up renting my linens and napkins from her as well - she offered me a much better price than the event rental company and my caterer. The ceremony flowers were incredible. My bouquet took my breath away. When I walked into the reception area, I could not beleive how she had transformed the entire space - simply stunning. The entire experience, from the initial communication and consultation, through the planning process and all the way through the flawless set up of the ceremony and reception, she execeeded our expectations at every juncture. I highly recommend Bella Fiori for your ceremony and reception.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE ROBERTA!!! She is absolutely AMAZING!!! I am honestly saddened by the fact that my wedding is over and I can't work with her anymore! My bouquet and everything about my wedding florals e.g., ceremony decor, reception centerpieces, wishing tree, etc, EVERYTHING was FANTASTIC!!! I cannot say enough good things about her and her company and would not recommend anyone but her! I have already recommended her to everyone and anyone else planning their big day and my best friend can't wait til Roberta handles her wedding as well!

THE BEST! BEST! BEST!Reviewed on 9/07/2012 Priscila R
I wish I could use a million starts for Bella Fiori Couture Floral & Events Design. I always dreamed big about my wedding day and its decor. From the first time talking to Roberta on the phone I knew she was the one to make my dream to come true. I can't thank Roberta enough for the BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING, STUNNING, WONDERFUL, PERFECT decor and flowers on my wedding day. EVERY SINGLE DETAIL was just gorgeous! It was not even necessary explaining much about what I wanted - Roberta is so talented and experienced that she reads your mind!!! I only hear wonderful compliments about my wedding decor. My bouquet was gorgeous, exactly the way I wanted it to be! My bridesmaids bouquets were even more than I was expecting it to be! My arch it was absolutely a dream - also more than I always dreamed about. She has a wonderful helper called Laerte that made a beautiful work and at the end packed everything so well for me. Roberta is an amazing person! Every time I went to meet with her I just wanted to stay there talking to her forever! She is VERY TALENTED, SO SWEET, she REALLY listens to you and comes up with great ideas exactly how you have in mind. I know she did so much more than she suppose to do. She is special and a sweetheart! My husband and I feel very blessed to have had Roberta on the most special day of our lives. He repeated several times how pleased he was with Roberta's work and how perfect everything it was. I can't thank Roberta enough for everything during my Wedding Planning and especially on the day of my wedding. I HIGHLY recommend Bella Fiori! Thank you Roberta for being so important, so special and making my wedding venue look so AMAZING!!!! Thank you FOREVER!!!!
