If I could give ZERO stars I would. Cheryl simply did not show up to my wedding. No call, No show. Yes, you are reading this correctly. She was supposed to show up at the hotel 90 minutes before the ceremony to leave the bouquets and boutonnier...
es and she didn’t. The venue called me to ask if I had heard from her because she had not delivered the centerpieces and other decorations for the ceremony and reception either. We couldn’t get a hold of her. She literally left us hanging on my wedding day. So, we had to scramble in less than an hour and purchase flowers from the store to have a sort of bouquet to walk down the aisle. There were no centerpieces/decorations ceremony/and my cake was boring and plain white. Even after the wedding, she did not care to call and explain/apologize and return my money for not rendering the services she was paid for. She wasn’t responding to texts or calls. I ultimately had to submit a dispute with the credit card company to get my money back. Cheryl was simply rude, sloppy, and unprofessional. I can’t believe that she owns a business. A few red flags: One time she sent me the information about someone else’s wedding. Another time she called me and asked if I was going to make it to the meeting and I told her that I was at the store and no one was there. She said that she had to leave. Seriously??? What kind of business is she running??? If you are wondering why I didn’t switch vendors it was because she does not return any money paid. I feel that I should give my review and tell all brides out there to be careful when selecting their vendors. You want your wedding day to be perfect and not have situations like this. The unprofessionalism of Cheryl and Tampa Wedding Studio deserves the least of my recommendations. Stay away.

We should've gone with our gut feeling when we booked Tampa Wedding Studio for our daughter's wedding. After confirming everything that we ordered and the time to be there for the day of the wedding, not only was Cheryl (owner) 1 1/2 hours late...
, the head table arrangements were so minimal, that the venue had to gather other items to add to the table or else it would've looked almost bare. There were ZERO lilies or roses in the arrangements - mostly made up of baby's breath and some other white flowers and looked like it was pieced together in minutes. The bridesmaids bouquets did not have a single rose in them either. In the contract, both the head table arrangements and bouquets said they'd have lilies and cream roses in them. For $65 each, you would think the bouquets would have something other than baby's breath and white daisy looking flowers. When Cheryl arrived 1 1/2 hours late, she did not apologize, just simply said she was "in St. Pete" that morning and that our wedding didn't start until 4:30 (it was after 3:30 when she arrived). We had our photographer timeline from when the flowers were due to arrive at 2:00. Minimal pictures were taken prior to the wedding since guests began arriving at 4:00 and Cheryl arrived less than 30 min before that. We contacted Cheryl 4 times in the days following the wedding asking for at least a refund of the table arrangement ($225), but have yet to hear back from her. It's a shame that she is unwilling to even respond to us after all that has transpired. We are kicking ourselves for not walking away after that first meeting, when we felt that something was "off".

My mom and sister found Cheryl at the Rusty Pelican wedding open house. They really liked her and her display, so I met with her. She worked with me to find a balance between simple and reasonable, but elegant. We used a combination of DIY and ...
her rentals. Also, she let me do a trial run of what the tables would look like. About a month before the wedding when my final payment was due, Cheryl had a family emergency and I did have a hard time with communication until about 10 days before the wedding, but she was right back on track when I finally got to chat with her again. She has a lot of advice on Rusty Pelican since she is a preferred vendor there, some of which I took and some of which I listened to the venue’s advice instead. Since my wedding was moved indoors that day, she offered a pipe and drape backdrop and was very easy going when I had to make the call to change it. Also, her assistant was sweet and super helpful! Everything ended up looking perfect! I would recommend Tampa Wedding Studio.

e misc fees and some tax. Cheryl is the owner and on the day of my wedding and after, I received numerous complaints about her extremely unpleasant attitude and unprofessionalism. This information was relayed to me by my wedding planner, venue coordinator, catering staff as well as friends and family. I was embarrassed and appalled by the reaction from others of her behavior which she was seemingly unapologetic for.
And I would just like anyone reading this to know just how Cheryl is conducting business. Cheryl refused to give me a $167.18 refund for our unfinished ceremony structure unless I signed a waiver stating I would not leave a bad review of her or her business. She did not fully perform to our liking a service in which we paid for and after confronting her and having to ask her for a refund, she obliged, wrote the check but then wouldn't give it to me unless I signed her piece of paper.
No wonder there are only good reviews regarding Cheryl and Tampa Wedding Studio. She will not refund any money due to her mistakes unless you are willing to sign a waiver. Never would I recommend Tampa Wedding Studio to anyone. Nor do I recommend you use their services. Everyone reading this, save yourself the time, money and headache and go elsewhere.

egardless! They did a great job setting up all of the flowers and delivering our bouquets, corsages, and boutonnieres.
They really did a lot more than that to help us out. On top of the centerpieces, ceremony flowers, and personal arrangements, they took care of the chair covers and sashes, set out the candles, table numbers, additional pictures I wanted displayed, the favors, AND we even ordered all of our stationery goods through them! (I told you Cheryl is awesome!) There was a special invitation I had seen somewhere that Cheryl and Laura went to the ends of the earth to find for me - and let me tell you, there were a TON of patterns similar to the one I had picked. But they went totally above and beyond the call of duty to deliver not only the special invitations, but a quality of service that I wish everyone in the industry could adopt!
Even though a couple of arrangements didn't turn out exactly right, I wish I could have another wedding just so I could have more flowers like the ones she got for us. They were so pretty and smelled SO good!!

As I am a new bride, I’m going around checking out vendors for all the various details I need to complete for my upcoming wedding. I was able to find my venues, caterer, photographer and dress in a pretty good amount of time and they were all ...
from personal recommendations. Yet I knew that the most time-consuming part of this whole process would be coming up with the floral décor and finding a decent florist.
I received a recommendation for Cheral Floral Studio from my fiancée’s co-worker who said she does great work and she’s going to be using Cheral for her upcoming wedding. I quickly set up an initial consultation with Cheryl (the owner) at 1:00 p.m. on a Saturday. My mother, sister and I arrived about 10 minutes early so we waited for her to finish lunch and then she came over to the room we were in. Cheryl seemed like a nice lady and she offered multiple suggestions for floral arrangements yet she seemed extremely disorganized and even answered a personal phone call during the consultation so that she could assist her husband in finding her a new minivan. Once the consultation was over, she stated that she would be sending me over the proposal by Tuesday of the upcoming week. Tuesday came and went and I never received a thing, so on Thursday I decided to email her about it. I still have not received a response back or a proposal from her and it’s been almost a month!
I’m not into bad-mouthing people via online reviews yet I had to this one time. As any bride-to-be can tell you, time is really of the essence and hard to come by when you’re planning a wedding. We have payments to make, vendors to call, appointments to attend so this whole incident really got to me. I have not tried to contact her after the first email cause I just don’t see a point anymore. If she’s this disregarding and neglectful of possible clients then what can I expect on my wedding day? It seems like she is more concerned with her own personal life than she is of making potential clients feel welcomed and stress-free. I personally believe that a bride should be treated extremely well especially considering she’s planning the most important day of her life! I cannot comment on her quality of product yet nonetheless this review should say a lot about the value she places on new brides-to-be as well as the desire she has of retaining new customers.
