Best Florist Ever!

I can't say enough good things about Fat Cat Flowers and Diane. Right from the beginning Diane was as sweet as can be, and understood exactly what I wanted - which I'm sure I didn't articulate well! The weeks leading up to the wedding, Diane stayed in close touch with me,... Read More letting me know they were good on their side and if there was anything different or that I was concerned with I was more than welcome to let her know. The morning of the wedding my mother called her to ask for 2 additional boutonnieres and she made that happen so seamlessly! When she delivered the flowers to the hotel room I couldn't get over how perfect and beautiful they were! They were exactly what I wanted! The arrangements at our reception were just stunning, so fragrant and people just loved them! I highly recommend Fat Cat Flowers to any bride, and I plan to use her again in the future for other events!

Diane was the best decision we made for our destination wedding in New Orleans! She is so experienced and knew how to help us with so many things that weren't even flower related!

I had a great time working with Diane and Fat Cat Flowers. She not only was good with pricing, but she was knowledgeable and kind and great with her conference calls. As a destination bride, I felt like she had done a great job of making me feel at ease. She listened to... Read More everything I said about our arch, the colors, the flowers I wanted and my vision in general. I didn't feel like she was pushy at all, and instead was realistic and very considerate. I think she did a great job of sticking to and acknowledging my budget and in the end when the flowers arrived to the hotel as we were getting ready I had a huge smile on my face as I thought they were incredibly beautiful. The flower girl basket was silly enough, probaby one of my favorite things. My little flower girl was so proud of it! Great vendor!

I was a destination bride that had my wedding in New Orleans last year. My planning process was quite lengthy as I had about a little over 2 years from the engagement to the wedding. I initially picked Diane because she's incredibly responsive, organized and gave me a very good... Read More price for what I said I was looking for - I was very specific in showing the exact colors and flowers I wanted. Unfortunately on the day of the wedding and still today in looking at the pictures, I'm very disappointed in the product I received as I expected so much more. I had discussed with Diane that my color palette was lavender, peach and pink that should carry throughout my entire wedding - not what I received. My bouquet and my girls' bouquets were what we discussed in terms of the flower type and mostly in line with the palette - she used lavender, pink and orange - the orange was much brighter than I wanted but I still liked the arrangements. The wedding and ceremony and reception flowers though were totally off. The centerpiece and arrangements for the ceremony looked nothing like the bouquets my girls and I carried- totally different flowers and color palette - used fuschia pink, dark purple and a lot of white with no peach color. I had sent her an image of candles that lined the aisle that were clustered in 3 that had varying candle heights - one that fully filled the case, one that halfway filled, etc. What I got were these stubby little burnt down candles that had varying heights that had been used. The worst were the flowers for my escort cards. I asked for hydrangeas that in varying colors of pink and white - wanted to do an ombré effect and have white fade to darker pink. She gave me half white and half dark pink flowers. They weren't lush at all but looked wilted and totally didn't give me the effect I was looking for. Overall again, very disappointed at the outcome of what I received and wish she would've been more forthcoming if she couldn't achieve the vision I was looking for based on my budget.
