In our initial meeting with Kim England she did an excellent job of selling her creativity and product – that is why we hired her to do our wedding flower. Throughout the planning process, it seemed like she did a great job about setting up mee...
tings and documenting any changes we made to our order. Fleurs du Soleil always sent us a revised contract after every meeting so that we could verify the changes and ensure we were all on the same page.
On the wedding day, we did not get what we paid for. The bridesmaid bouquets were TINY and wilting when they were delivered. We paid $100 per bouquet ($600 total for bridesmaids) and expected very full bouquets – not the case. Many of the girls’ flowers were falling off within the first couple of hours. Very embarrassing. I had also requested calla lilies as my first choice flower as an accent in the bouquets and also for the boutonnieres. I saw them all week at the grocery store and other florists, but Fleurs du Soleil said they could not find them. Also, two of the five groomsmen boutonnieres broke within the first hour of being delivered – and these are not inexperienced groomsmen! Our centerpieces were disappointing as well – not full and included more foliage than flowers.
We hired Fleurs du Soleil for their portfolio’s creativity but after working with them, it seems like they are all about minimizing their costs in any way possible. Maybe good for their business in the short term, but it’s bad for brides and it will eventually catch up to them. I do not recommend them.
