We don't know much about flowers names, types or seasons. I put together a rather vast pinterest board of flowers arrangements that I liked and sent it to Janet along with my colors (eggplant purple and dark green with cream and gold accents). ...
The bouquets and flower arrangements she put together were absolutely magical. We were so pleased with the result!

Boyd did a gorgeous job on our flowers! I had some general ideas from Pinterest I shared with Janet but let her pick out the rest and honestly I couldn’t have imagined such beautiful arrangements. It’s true there’s a design fee as others have m...
entioned, but the flowers were far more beautiful than anything I could’ve come up with on my own, and Janet came in well under the initial budget I gave her even with a drought in the area which meant some things had to be sourced from elsewhere. Overall I couldn’t be happier with the way the flowers turned out, and it was a pleasure to work with Boyd. On the day of my wedding I also completely forgot the flowers for my hair and Janet even stopped by the salon I was getting ready at with the pieces I needed. I would not hesitate to recommend Boyd Family Farm to anyone in the area!

Janet is very sweet, talented, and flexible. The flowers she did for our wedding were absolutely gorgeous. We made our own centerpieces but had her do all of our bouquets/boutonnières/wristlets/church decorations/cake flowers. Looking back, I w...
ish I had her do my centerpieces too (too time consuming to do yourself)! I noticed some of the wristlets and boutonnières looked a little bit smushed/wilted but overall everything was beautiful.
She was sometimes difficult to get ahold of- we emailed about quotes but I would recommend calling for specifics. I think she mixed up my second and third quote and the changes I had made, because we ended up getting more (and spending more) than I had decided on, but oh well! Like others have mentioned, there is a design fee of about $300 which shows up on the quote but was never discussed when we met in person.
There are limited options available when you get married in the West Dover area, and Janet's prices and proximity to Mount Snow was very helpful.

Our wedding flowers were more beautiful than I could have imagined! Janet was great to work with and everything was perfect. They even supplied birch branches for us to tie to our tent poles which looked amazing!!

I really liked my bouquet from Boyd Family Farm. The only downside was that it didn't include the green vines I wanted and the little pink (not coral - my color) roses were a little brown around the edges. They arroved on time though and was pr...

Boyd Family Farms is helpful, friendly, and knows flowers! They were able to suggest blooms and arrangements to match our wedding perfectly, and their work transformed our ceremony and reception.

Disappointing! I met with Janet numerous times (making trips up to VT solely to visit her!) and she did not perform for me on my wedding day. Numerous items were forgotten that I had told her and we had gone over many times. Even the venue that...
we got married at, who spoke so highly of her, told us after the fact that she gave them zero information the day-of, which was unlike her. I know we were not their only wedding that day, but when I booked her 7 months before my wedding she ensured me that they were capable of handling up to 3 weddings a weekend - I was told we were the second wedding to confirm with her. I found out through talking with people in town that there were two other massive weddings the same day as mine, and I assume they were much more preoccupied with them then me.
It's a good thing flowers were not a high priority to me that day, otherwise, I'm sure I would have had a day of panic-attack. My flowers were nothing like we discussed, the mothers' corsages fell apart as they were putting them on for pictures, a boutonniere for one of the grandfather's was forgotten and she did not give any direction to our coordinators when they were dropped off. We had groomsmen running around our venue site looking for everything!
My only advice, if you are going to use Boyd Family Farm, make sure you confirm all notes on what you expect. You may go over the same product list numerous times, but that does not mean you will receive what you request. Also, it is usual to go weeks without getting a call back - don't even try using email, that's useless.

It's a great spot for a tent wedding but you have to hope for good weather (both that day and leading up to the wedding so the ground isn't too wet) and want the feel that comes with having your wedding on a working farm.

I chose Boyd after doing tons of research because I wanted to support the local farms in VT, and I couldn't be happier that I did! Janet Boyd was our contact and she was phenomenal! It was a bit out of our way to stop there but it was worth the...
trip. Knowing next to nothing about flowers I went in with some photos and samples of our random assortment of bottles and jars I intended to use for the centerpieces. Janet was able to immediately take my ideas and run with them- giving me a variety of lovely flowers that would work with the vision I had. She was also very honest about what would work and what wouldn't, the cost of each type of flower, and was flexible in working with me to make our budget work for both of us. She gave me so many great suggestions, tips, and directions! When we walked into our reception I was floored at how perfectly she had captured my vision! Each flower was flawless and beautiful! My bouquet and the girls bouquets were also absolutely perfect- mine was right out of a fairytale and not over the top- she was able to give me what I wanted when I didn't even know what I wanted! The boutonnieres looked fantastic too. I simply can't say enough about what a positive experience we had with Boyd Family Farm- and knowing that they are a true local VT farm makes it that much better! Such personal service and supporting local businesses- I couldn't have asked for anything more!
