What can I say? Excellent! Excellent! Excellent! Don't book with anyone else! Here's Vanessa's response to me on the Knot: "You may send pictures to my email address if it makes it easier. This will help me see what your vision is and how we ca...
n keep it to your budget."
Key words: she said she'll "keep to my budget" which is AWESOME!
Based on all the overwhelming positive reviews here, I knew I had to call her because originally was going to do flowers ourselves but didn't want my mom to be stressed on the day of. At first I was scared because my budget was so small for a wedding of 140 with 10 bridesmaids and 10 groomsmen but Vanessa saved me. Her professionalism was amazing!
My budget was $1500 or less and she said she was going to include the delivery and set up as part of the whole thing. Whatever you want, she's willing to work in your budget. Just to give you a comparison, for this price, I'm getting delivery/setup (which most places charge extra), 1 bridal bouquet, 10 bridesmaids bouquets, 2 corsages, 13 centerpieces, and 14 boutennieres. When I talk to her on the phone, we talk about my vision for the wedding. She talks about what she CAN do for me and not focus on what cannot be done. When I was out of ideas, she would say "ooohh you know what? I know just the right shade of pink roses for you." She said she was going to email me what she puts together within days so I don't even have to make the long trip to visit in person. Also, they make flowers on demand so everything is guaranteed fresh. She was really nice and our phone conversation she never rushed me and really wanted to get to know our vision for how the flowers should look. I wanted a touch of elegance and she suggested gorgeous white hydrangeas with glass vases. Even though my budget was small and my wedding hasn't even happened yet, I'm writing this review because this place is a WHOLE LEVEL above all other florists. Even my friend who does her own flowers and flowers for other friends would agree. You get the best price here for the best quality. I can't wait to see what magic Vanessa can do on my wedding day!
If you're still not convinced, just to give you an idea, here's what OTHER florists said to me: "Even being as frugal as possible, realistically your budget should be around $3,000.00 for everything you need. No matter what flowers you use, I'm coming up with a total of $3,200.00. "
"With the most affordable/cheapest centerpieces and small size bouquets your budget should be about $ 1,750 before delivery and taxes! Flowers itself will be way more then $1,000...."
I'm so glad I chose Cut 1 florals and Vanessa. Such a friendly team who will work with you on your special day, not against your wallet.
