I literally cannot say enough good things about Violets are Blue! Brides: you NEED to work with Violets are Blue!!! When I started my wedding planning journey I was so overwhelmed after talking to so many other florists who were cookie-cutter, old fashioned, and pushy. However,... Read More when I met with Courtney she changed my entire perspective on florals- she is so genuinely talented, creative, and down to earth. She literally went step by step with me through every book of flower types she had (literally 10+ books) in order to make sure I got exactly what I wanted, and she made my million-dollar dreams come to life within the budget I had! I was blown away, and you can tell that Courtney is passionate and cut from a different cloth than other florists in Indy. She has the qualities of the most beautiful flower- fresh, springy, and beautiful. Working with her was the easiest part of the whole wedding planning- she took care of everything, communicated so well, and made sure I had nothing to worry about (which is hard because I'm a worry wart). I wasn't surprised when my mother-in-law (who is a wedding coordinator for her local church!) ended up sharing with me that every bride she worked with who used Violets are Blue had the BEST floral arrangements, bouquets, and boutonnieres. Florals really do impact the entire look of the wedding and it was crystal clear on my wedding day that I made the right choice. Everything was stunning and really showcased what my husband and I wanted our celebration to look like. People couldn't stop complimenting our arrangements, too! All in all, I really loved working with Violets are Blue and wish I could tell every bride in person that Courtney is the right choice for you. I wouldn't change a thing about the whole process and love looking back at our pictures and remembering what she did for us. Thank you, Courtney and VAB, for making our day so beautiful!!!!

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!

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!

We worked with Courtney for our December wedding and she completely knocked it out of the park. Not only did she design some amazing table runners and garlands, she brought hundreds (literally) of candles and glass orbs to hang all over our ceremony and reception. There is no... Read More way I could have come up with these ideas on my own - she brought such a unique and creative perspective that I so appreciate. Our wedding was so much more beautiful than I had ever pictured in my head, and Courtney played a huge part in that.

From the moment we met Courtney, I knew that I didn't have to worry about our flowers. I gave her one (yes, ONE) Pinterest photo to work with, said I knew nothing about flowers, and let her go on about her business. At no point did I worry about whether she would do a good job... Read More or whether she would try to make us spend more money... She stuck right to our budget, answered all of my silly questions promptly, and delivered the most gorgeous flowers on our wedding day. They exceeded my expectations, and everyone commented on how beautiful they were. I would absolutely recommend Courtney and VAB to anyone - she was amazing!

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!
