I can honestly say we had our dream wedding because of Sayles and her team - it would not have been possible without them. We got so many compliments on the flowers throughout and after our wedding. My bouquet was the most beautiful thing I have ever seen - better than any idea I've ever had or pictures I've seen on Pinterest. If you're looking for a florist, look no further! Sayles and her team are the best.

yles' instagram and website. I immediately put in an inquiry hoping she & her team had my date available. From then on, it was a dream. Sayles put together her own Pinterest board for me based on our conversations and it couldn't have been a more perfect match. Her and Cara on her team took so much time, effort, and multiple meetings to go through each and every flower and decor piece. While I wanted simple, white flowers and greenery, they went above and beyond to ensure that my simplistic idea, wasn't simple at all- when it came to life, it was truly magical to see what they had put together. I couldn't have imagined anything more perfect. If you have the opportunity to work with Sayles DO IT (and listen to her little suggestions that make you go outside of your comfort zone- I couldn't be happier that I did!).

I cannot recommend Sayles and her fabulous team enough. When I initially approached Sayles, I expected to be turned away because of my budget, but she was willing to work within my constraints and went above and beyond what I expected. Her team...
was attentive throughout the wedding, showed up on time, worked with some last min requests that I had and made my vision come to life. All night long my guests were commenting on how incredible the flowers were. The next day when I arrived to pick up some decor left at the venue, her team was there taking down the remainder of the flowers and were so sweet to me and thankful for me taking the time to thank them for their work. I will continue to use Sayles for any floral needs I have in the future and recommend her to all my RI friends.

We can hardly express in words how amazing Sayles Livingston was in providing flowers for our wedding in Providence in September 2019. From the early stages of planning, Sayles was responsive and easy to talk to on the phone and via email, and ...
was extremely receptive to our ideas, both vague and specific. After every phone call or email, we received an updated quote with every detail noted. We had our ceremony at a church in Providence, and our reception at the Providence Public Library, and Sayles provided arrangements for both locations, as well as bouquets and boutonnieres for our wedding party. Our main requests were that we have no roses, and that the arrangements be a lot of greenery with white flowers and the slightest touch of color. Other than that, we left it up to Sayles to provide seasonal and natural looking arrangements. For our table centerpieces, she designed a wreath around lanterns that we provided, and she also provided her own library card catalog for our escort card table arrangement. The bouquets were bountiful, intricate, and stunning, and the boutonnieres were elegant and understated. Perhaps the best part of all was a flowing greenery and floral arrangement down the stairs of the library, where our guests could not stop taking pictures because it looked so great. The flowers really transformed our venue from a pretty historic library to a beautiful reception space, and we cannot recommend Sayles enough as a wedding florist in Rhode Island.

arrangements. We were married in a nor'easter, so our planned outdoor ceremony had to be moved indoors, and Sayles and her team worked swiftly the day of the wedding to make that happen seamlessly.
As an out of town bride, I found Sayles and her team were hard to schedule meetings with. I worked with one person via phone and email for months leading up to the wedding, but when it came time to schedule two different weekend trips to meet in person, our event manager was either double booked or our appointment was forgotten entirely. This was very disheartening, as we drove 5 hours to get to this meeting on time only to realize the design team hadn't planned for it. While I don't think these miscommunications impacted our final event, this could be concerning to some brides.

didn’t look like the whimsical and flowy bouquet I requested both on Pinterest and in conversations. They did bring over more greenery to fix this, but that’s not really an issue you want to have to fix on your wedding day (also why am I paying $100 more than the bridesmaids bouquets for a few extra vines and leaves?). The boutonnières were not at all like the picture I sent either. It looked like they put one single white flower on a pin and called it a day. This is probably the most disappointing to me because now that terrible boutonnière is in every single picture of my husband and I. The rest of the flowers were fine, but still now exactly the relaxed and loose vibe I had said I wanted. And the gold votives I thought I was getting looked cheap and orange.
EDIT: I originally had this review as 3 stars, but am downgrading to one star because they contacted the Knot to try to remove my somewhat negative review. They told the site that my review was false and that they were "unable to recognize you by your name associated with this review, registered wedding date, and/or the content of your review." This is 100% false because my name and wedding date on this site is the same that's stated in my contract with them. It's clear they're only interested in positive reviews and don't care about honest feedback. This now makes sense to me why there are only good reviews on here. They probably report all negative reviews as false.

ly concerned about, but I did care a lot about my bouquet. The morning of the wedding when it was dropped off it had no greens in it, something that I said I wanted a good amount of, so her team had to go back to her studio and fix it. Not a huge deal, but a little bit stressful as the bridal party and I are getting ready to head to the ceremony. It's also worth noting that I didn't see Sayles at all on my wedding day, she had her team who I had never met before doing all of the delivery and set up. We got married in a chapel right across the street from our reception venue, and the plan was to move some of the ceremony decor to the reception, which was a great option. However, her team started moving the flower wreaths off the chapel doors while we were still taking photos in front of them. In some of our photos you can actually see the wreaths being taken down. This was pretty upsetting because I didn't realize it until afterwards when we received our photos, I would have thought her team would have known not to do this. Lastly, I am from out of town and had to make special trips to RI to meet with Sayles, which is no problem, but made me especially irritated when she didn't show up to our second meeting, and we instead spent the time recapping everything we had already talked about with her teammate. Considering how expensive her flowers are, I would have expected much better service. Her designs are beautiful, but if you do work with her I would make sure you are very clear on what you are looking for and expect from her and the team.

I was busy with our first look and it turned out that my Dad never even received his boutonniere and it ended up sitting in the box that it was delivered in all day somewhere.

hands. She spent a couple of hours with me going through books and pictures until she got an idea of exactly what I was envisioning. The flower types and exact colors were less important to me than the idea that neither the flowers nor the decor overpower our outdoor ceremony and reception spots, which she completely understood.

Sayles and her team are top notch and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an amazing florist.
