Wow - Fat Cat Florist did it again! This is my second wedding with Fat Cat ,(Diane). The first wedding took my breath away when I saw all the flowers.

I wish that reviewers could post pictures because my flowers were absolutely STUNNING. I'm not super into flowers, because I have awful allergies, so in our meetings with Diane I just kind of gave her a "feel" or "vibe" that we were going for. I wasn't super restrictive on the... Read More types of flowers that I wanted, as long as they fit; Diane had free creative liberty. I was NOT disappointed. I still can't believe how beautiful they were. I need to stress that I really am not remotely into flowers at all, and I was captivated by them all night. My ONLY grievance is that the small corsages that I ordered for the readers/gift bearers/family were way smaller than anticipated. It's possible that the single flower was all my budget would afford, but I wish I could have known that ahead of time. They just seemed disappointing compared to the rest of the bouquets. All in all, though, I was thrilled with our flower arrangements.

Diane was absolutely wonderful to work with!

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
