I have no knowledge of flowers and when I had to pick flowers for my wedding in February I was terrified. I found two pictures of flowers on line of wedding flowers I liked and I walked in to my initial visit with nothing else but this idea. Fat cat was able to recreate it... Read More perfectly. They made the floral and aisle decoration planning so easy. They also advised on what size arrangements should go on which table. I couldn't be happier with the way my flowers turned out.

Diane was absolutely wonderful to work with! She is super creative even though she comes from a corporate background, her attention to detail and organizational skills were much appreciated as I was planning a destination wedding and most of our communications were over email.... Read More She was great about staying within our budget and did not try to upsell too much, which other florists I was in touch with did a bit too much of. I was able to meet her in person just once 10 weeks before the wedding to finalize the colors and flower choices. The arrangements turned out to be exactly what I was envisioning - soft and romantic. Absolutely loved working with Diane and her team and it played a huge role in our perfect day!

I was referred to Diane by my venue, Broussards AND my wedding planner. I narrowed my options down to visiting 3 florists. My visit with Diane left no doubt that her experience, taste, sincere desire to create exactly what we individually would love and personality was exactly... Read More what we hoped for. We soon learned that it would be even more than we could have dreamed of. Diane was both excited and patient with my evolving inspiration and table floor plan. We had a great dialogue and not only created the flower bouquets, boutineers, and flower arrangements of my fantasy - but also my "dripping with candles" ambience I loved. Her collection of candles was unmatched and left us with many options. At her convenient warehouse, together with Diane's support, my husband I were able to, customize our candle arrangement (she LITERALLY has every candle type you can imagine so we were able to get the exact look and feeling we wanted!). Whether you are looking for gorgeous flowers or candles (or, in our case, both), I promise Diane will blow any expectations away. I truly can't say enough thank you's to Fat Cat Flowers for being such a gracious and talented partner <3

I will start off by saying that I am not a "florally" person- but after speaking with Diane at Fat Cat Flowers, I had absolutely no worries that she would do a fantastic job!

I saved my bouquet along with some of the other flowers and am going to preserve them, so I always have a part of that special day.

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.
