Ali was amazing! I loved all my flowers and arrangements. The center pieces were perfect as well. The team did an amazing job. I didn't realize going in how difficult picking flowers could be but Ali was great in helping with everything! Thank you so much
To begin, let me start by saying finding a florist was the most difficult thing I had to find for my wedding. I looked at several florist who wanted a ridiculous amount of money that I simply could not justify spending. After months of looking for a florist, I found Excellent Designs. I can not describe how thankful I am for all they did for my wedding; they were patient, affordable, detailed, and maintained great communication throughout the process. I could not have been happier with how every arrangement looked. I received so many compliments on my flowers and, to make it even better, the flowers lasted over a week (yes, totally did not expect that) after my wedding so my home smelled amazing. Ali was genuine and really went above and beyond to help my husband and I to make sure everything was created to our liking. If anyone needs a florist for anything really, go to Ali and his company- you won't be disappointed! From Chris and I, thank you so much Ali and your team!!!
I worked with Ali at a wedding that took place at the Dana on Mission Bay. Their flowers and other decorations were extremely beautiful and elegant, but what impressed me the most was Ali's customer service. He was so friendly and professional that it almost made me cry. I wish there were more business owners like him in this world. To make a long story short, Excellent Designs is the best wedding decor provider I've ever worked with in my entire life.
This review is long overdue. Ali from Excellent Designs helped us to have our dream wedding! He is professional, friendly, and his prices are very reasonable. He is very knowledgeable about flowers and he was very attentive to our needs. He always suggested a more cost effective option and gave us ideas when I was clueless about flowers and my vision for the wedding. His wife does the arrangements and she is an artist! They make an awesome team and it was a pleasure working with them! Thank you!
Good value on a budgetReviewed on 9/18/2014 Chelsea N
Ali and his wife provide great flowers for reasonable costs. We used him for the ceremony decoration flowers, all bridal party bouquets/corsages/boutonnieres, and the large reception arrangements. His wife is the florist; she is excellent at reproducing what she sees. Take photo references to show them what you want! If she doesn't have that to work with, she has a set "style" that she falls back on. Which is beautiful, but might not be what you have in mind. We ordered five large arrangements, eight bouquets, eight pew arrangements, 16 boutonnieres and 18 corsages. I think we got a good deal.
Wonderful!Reviewed on 12/03/2013 Amanda
Ali and his team did an AMAZING job with the flowers and decorations at our wedding. Ali worked within our budget to create gorgeous center pieces, table decorations, bouquets, etc. Ali was professional and had great communication with us throughout the wedding planning process. He is flexible and was willing to make changes for us up to the very day before our wedding! Ali and his team were completely reliable and went over and above for us on our big day! We would recommend them to anyone!

He did everything that I asked for + some. Very easy to work with and even allowed me to change the contract 2 weeks before the wedding. Flowers were great!
Beautiful ResultsReviewed on 9/10/2013 Michelle M
I was on the search for affordable decor and floral arrangements and found them both in the same place! Ali put together a look that was exactly how I imagined and our wedding was truly stunning and unforgettable! The results appeared to cost much much more than I spent and I highly recommend anyone and everyone to consider Excellent Designs for your wedding or event!
AMAZINGReviewed on 6/30/2013 Sabrana B
Is one of the many words to describe their service. Very patient and understanding. Will highly recommend for an all inclusive decorator.
Excellent! It's in the name!Reviewed on 2/14/2013 Dessarina N
I loved these guys. Ali was very understanding and really loves to put a lavish "Ali" touch on his decor and floral arrangements. He works from home to keep costs low, and believe me, THEY. ARE. LOW!
BEAUTIFUL DECORReviewed on 8/12/2012 Waheeda S
Great husband and wife owned business, lots of selection, and their designs brought the hotel ballroom to life. The owner Ali has a straight forward attitude which can catch you off-base for a second, but you realize it's just because he wants everything to be a amazing. His wife is a doll who threw in a lot of free stuff because she wanted it look even better for me.
Must use this companyReviewed on 5/09/2012 Maria R
I worked with Ali and explained my vision for the wedding. Before we met in person, he asked me what my colors where so when I showed up for my appointment, he already had an example of a table setting and a center piece. I loved it and went with what he suggested. He is very good at understanding your vision and seeing it through. Excellent Designs are professional and very affordable. They are willing to work with your budget. *Tip: you may want to give them a lower number of expected guests because once they give you an estimate, you agree to pay a certain price and once you sign an agreement, you cannot change the number of guests. I wanted an estimate for 250 guests and signed a contract for that. When it came closer to my wedding, only 211 and confirmed so I couldn't change the number of tables, etc. but I could use the extra money on other amenities such as uplights. I was extremely happy with how they decorated my wedding (ceremony and venue); they also did my flowers and they were gorgeous. I highly recommend going with this vendor.
Flowers and Ceremony/Reception DecorReviewed on 9/20/2011 Gwendolyn D
Let me start with I began my wedding planning thinking that I wouldn't even be able to use real flowers based on my budget. I had very low expectations for decor as well, and anticipated a lot of tiresom DIY projects. However, Excellent Designs really came through. When they say they can work with any budget - they're not kidding! I was able to have real flowers (I know it sounds crazy), and the reception decor turned out beautiful. They set up and take down everything for you so you don't have to worry about that. They were on time and I had no problems with them. I got rave reviews of how beautiful everything looked (especially for the price I paid). I would highly recommend!!!
Beautiful workReviewed on 6/26/2011 Karen T
The flowers were beautiful and the chiffon draping was stunning. Our ceremony and reception areas were very beautiful. All our family and friends that attended the wedding could not stop talking about how beautiful the place looked.
Great workReviewed on 3/08/2011 Amy A
I was very happy with the gorgeous linens I rented. The uplights were perfect too! Anyone would be very happy with the service I received. And great pricing!

I loved how easy she is to work with. She listens to all of your ideas and then gives you her advice (if wanted). She creates beautiful masterpieces
