When I got engaged, I knew I must hire Kate as my florist. Kate and her team did my sister's wedding 7 years ago and my best friend's wedding last year. She is also doing the florals and event design for my brother's wedding...
Kate has an exceptional ability to pull common themes from her client's mood boards and create a one of a kind vision. I was so indecisive with what I wanted my decor vision to be. Kate was so patient and kept me calm and always gave me ideas to consider. I am so glad I trusted Kate. She is hands down the best!

of the suite heart table were also very pretty. For what we paid for the center pieces, we were upset with how little some were. We had three different centerpieces varied throughout the room. The large ones were pretty. The smaller ones were really small, which was not what we discussed or envisioned. Kate ended up having to go back to the shop to get more flowers, because my mom luckily checked in the ballroom earlier in the day to see what they looked liked. The boutonnieres were quite small. The venue somehow had some that we used for the father of the bride, father of the groom and the groom, because they were that small. We also struggled a bit with Kate’s organization. Overall, the flowers looked pretty, but we weren’t thrilled with some aspects.

When I first booked with Kate in August of 2020 I was so excited. She seemed to really understand my vision and I was thrilled since flowers play such a huge part. As my November 2021 wedding was approaching I had reached out to Kate to see if ...
another meeting was necessary to firm everything up, she replied no. Trusting her, I said okay. A week before the wedding she sets up our final call and casually drops that she doesn't think she's going to have enough candelabras (the main reason for going with her). Naturally I was bummed, but Kate gave a beautiful description of how she could replace them. Flash forward to the wedding day and the centerpieces were a complete disaster. They looked terrible. Her fabulous descriptions of what she was going to provide was a complete sham. Her replacement of the candelabra was something that I could have put together in 2 seconds for less than $5 and she charged over $900. The "Floral moment" as she called it, was 4 small rose buds in a vase. For the amount of money she charged, she did not deliver. Not to mention, her crew came and took all of the flowers that we informed her we wanted (as we did pay for them!!). Her response was oops, sorry my crew took them...absolutely terrible. The worst part is that we reached out to discuss our disappointment and she hasn't even had the decency to respond.

n booking your vendors that they have your best interest at heart. When our reception ended and our guests and family were wishing my husband and I goodbye (downstairs, outside) ALL of our flowers were loaded in a van and taken WITHOUT MENTION. After paying a few thousand dollars for floral arrangements, my parents returned home with only my bouquet. Upon reaching out with my concern after returning from my honeymoon and finding out, I was told "we should have told them before the wedding we wanted the flowers." I couldn't disagree more- We paid for each flower with cash. These were our flowers. Therefore, we should have been ASKED while planning what we wanted done with our flowers after the reception ended, before this even became an issue. An honest company would have forewarned us BEFORE the wedding that in 20 minutes time, after guests left the ballroom, all flowers would be taken away. Those who have had wedding before know the hustle and bustle of wishing the bride and groom off. Had they known, my parents would have been prepared to ask for their flowers. Instead they returned to a flowerless ballroom and they held brunch the next day in our home without a single arrangement...except my bouquet. So sad and disheartening.

ouquet was a real stunner. I received so many compliments. Her and the team were easy to work with and were able to work with me on keeping in my budget.
It was on the day of the wedding that Kate was one of my saviors. My plan was to have an outdoor ceremony in the beautiful garden of my venue and there would be a flowered garland strung around the gazebo. Unfortunately, it rained on my wedding day and everything had to be moved inside to the ballroom. It’s a great venue but I hadn’t planned any inside ceremony décor so the space looked very much like a backup plan ballroom. However, as a favor to a disappointed bride, Kate was able to take my outdoor garland and whip up an indoor arch structure that morning! It was gorgeous and really made my ceremony pictures pop. Because of her work, a lot of guests assumed the ceremony was always supposed to be inside! I don’t know what I would have done without it, she helped make the day better and I am so thankful. I can’t recommend Katydid enough for your next event!
