When I started my florist search, I was looking for someone who could do more than provide flowers. Courtney at Violets Are Blue met with me and walked me through the whole floral design process. Since my mom was a florist, I wanted to be very hands-on and Courtney... Read More enthusiastically took my vision and made it a reality by helping with flower choices, arrangement styles, and other floral logistics. When I sent her an email with a new idea, she quickly responded with several ways we could make it happen. In addition to the design process, Violets Are Blue's pre-wedding organisation made the budget clear and understandable so I always felt comfortable about all components of the floral decor. The end result was extraordinary! She filled our huge venue with flowers that made an even bigger statement. The hanging carnations accented my walk down the aisle elegantly. The bouquets and arrangements brought my colour scheme to life. I can't express enough how happy I am that I chose Violets Are Blue as my floral vendor!

I would recommend Violets are Blue to anyone in need of floral design help, but in particular to brides. I worked with the lead designer (Courtney) and she was absolutely incredible. I am positive that I would not have been able to plan my wedding without her. She not only... Read More accommodated every request I made but also got a feel for what I wanted the vibe to be like at the wedding and continued to make suggestions in the planning process. Did I mention that she did all of this at a completely affordable price? I had several guests at the wedding (who are currently planning their own weddings) ask who did my flowers. I proudly told them Violet are Blue! To anyone looking for a great florist that is not only talented but also extremely fun to work with, this company is perfect for you!


For your Pinterest-Inspired Wedding...

Courtney of Violets are Blue is not a "florist", she is an artist. I knew from the beginning that I did not want to go with a Big Box flower store. I wanted someone who loved their craft, someone who wasn't only interested in mass producing white rose bulbous bouquets... and... Read More that is exactly what Violets are Blue is! This was very apparent the first time I met with her. We had an informal meeting at Starbucks and chatted, brainstormed and looked at photos of every possible thing I could have ever wanted flower-wise at my wedding. When I left, I knew that I would probably have to scale back on some of my ideas due to our budget. However, I was so pleasantly surprised that she was able to give me everything I wanted within my budget! She was the first florist I called, the first florist I met with.... and I booked her immediately before anyone else could snatch her up on my date, because I was so impressed at our first meeting. The flowers totally make the wedding. For us, we didn't have much decor except for the flowers so the quality and wow-factor was important to me. This is why you should hire Violets are Blue. We had an elegant wedding in a barn and a lot of my inspiration came from Pinterest. (Ladies, you know all those photos that you wish YOUR wedding could be like?) She captured our rustic, natural, romantic feel EXACTLY and I truly feel that she gave us the Pinterest wedding of my dreams. I gave her vague suggestions like, "Make our head table the center of attention" and "I hate traditional" and it was like she was inside my brain because everything turned out how I imagined. Not to mention, she is super sweet and very easy to work. I loved that she sent me sneak peaks of my centerpieces the day before the wedding. But she kept the bouquet a secret :) She even hand delivered all of our bouquets to the hotel room we were getting ready in. It is apparent that Courtney can work with any style, any budget, any vision. I am so happy that she was a part of our special day and I would recommend her to anyone!

From the start, they seemed like a great florist. They gave great recommendations for us and our flower choices, they met with us to discuss our dream wedding and they seemed nice and great! We actually went with them even thought they were slightly more expensive because of how... Read More accommodating they seemed. Wow, we were wrong. The day of the wedding, they didn't show up to the ceremony till only about 25 minutes until it was supposed to start and offered no apologies or anything to us. They almost didn't have the flowers setup before the wedding let alone before guests got there. On top of that, the groomsman's flowers were all wilted by they time they put them on and did not meet our rather relaxed standards. The bridesmaid's bouquets were dark purple even though we requested light pink and finally, my wife's bouquet wilted before the ceremony was over and had bug eaten greenery in it which was not appealing. Overall it was not a good experience with them and I personally would not recommend them after the experience we had because of the stress they caused and their poor execution and attention to details.

It was purely serendipity that I found Violets Are Blue. While searching for wedding photographers I noticed a floral photo I thought was stunning. It was credited to a local company called Violets Are Blue. I called them and my daughter and I met with Courtney of Violets Are... Read More Blue to discuss doing the flowers for my daughters wedding. It turns out that she was the only florist we spoke to because we took a crazy leap of faith that day and hired her on the spot (we did not know her or her company at all)! Sometimes dreams do come true, and that's how we felt about what Courtney and Violets Are Blue created for us. She took our vision and made it into a dream reality, actually better than we envisioned. Weeks later my daughter and I are still talking about the flowers and wedding guests are still commenting about them. I honestly felt I was in a heavenly wedding garden, it was that beautiful. She also made our chuppah (wedding canopy) for us and it too was stunning - an ethereal & romantic setting for the marriage ceremony. Courtney was wonderful to work with, she had fabulous suggestions, and she answered emails and made any changes we requested immediately. Plus, as an added bonus she is very calm and organized, exactly what you need during the stress of wedding planning. I still can't thinking about how beautiful the flowers were and how they created a dream wedding for my daughter. Honestly, hiring Violets Are Blue was on of my best on the spot decisions ever! What are you waiting for - hire them!

I live in Chicago and therefore it's been a little difficult planning an Indy wedding.

I was not pleased with the bridal bouquet provided. It was not like the picture I had included in my request, and half the lillies in the bouquet were dead or dying when it was delivered.

However, throughout the night, the flowers continued to fall out of the bouquet at the slightest, and I mean slightest, movement.
