Working with Andie was very tough from the design stage through to our actual wedding day. She expects 100% trust in her and will tell you that she sells a vision, not specific flowers. Given this, she absolutely refuses to give you any information about what flowers you have purchased, even after the order is placed and will not provide a mock up of what your flowers will look like. Conceptually, this could work if she put the effort in to properly understand that her vision aligns with yours. Unfortunately, she doesn’t actually ask questions to make sure her vision will achieve what you have communicated to her. Instead, she responds negatively and dismissively to requests to communicate her own vision, then stubbornly pushes that vision even if you communicate a discrepancy in understanding after she asks questions that makes it clear she has missed the mark.
In advance of ordering, she does not ask and is not interested to know if there are any flowers you really don’t like in her plans. Instead, she will send you a giant list of flower you could have, and if told directly there is a flower you don’t want among them, will ignore you if she personally likes the flower type you request not to have, order them anyway, and in our case, make your arrangements almost entirely with them.
While our flowers were objectively well put together, we did not like the arrangements we received on our wedding day, and quite honestly, the delivery of my bridal bouquet put a huge damper in our getting ready as I did not like it and it was the first time I saw what my floral would look like. It left fear for what was to come. We specifically communicated that we are not fans of roses, however my bridal bouquet was around 80% made up of roses. And even worse, when we got to our wedding, our archway, the arrangement that will be seen in all our ceremony photos, was even worse. It was almost 90% roses and was traditional in style when we specifically advised we did not want a traditional style in writing. As requested by Andie, we put all our trust in her, but were broken hearted and disappointed about the flowers we received. At the end of the night, we couldn’t wait to throw out all the flowers.
Andie specified that she would order us what was available during this busy time due to Covid, therefore I believe would blame her inability to meet expectations on Covid, stating that roses were only available at the time. However, we follow other local florists in the area that have delivered beautiful alternatives in this same week, therefore this excuse would be untrue.
Finally, Andie is also uncollaborative. She refused to collaborate with our super friendly decorator, who offered to connect with her to ensure their visions worked well together.
My biggest recommendation - if you care about and are excited to know what your floral will look like in advance of your big day, if you don’t want walk into your wedding blind to what your floral will look like, and if don’t want to be sorely heartbroken by your florals on your wedding day, I would strongly recommend not working with Andie. Overall it seems like she is very protective of her own interests, overly cocky that her vision is the right way to proceed (even if it doesn’t match her clients) and not at all concerned about the importance of her client’s wedding day to them. She needs to learn to improve her communication and collaboration, lose her ego at the door, and remember that her own personal preferences are not important but that her paying clients are, if she wants to work in this very special industry and share this very special moment with couples.
Amazing Expertise and Great Attention to Detail
There is no doubt that Andie is extremely passionate about her work. From the moment I met her, I knew she would do an outstanding job. I am so grateful to have chosen Andie at Dandie Andie Floral Designs for our flower arrangements.
I highly recommend Dandie Andie Floral Designs for anyone in need of beautiful flower arrangements. You will NOT be disappointed!!

When I began planning our wedding, I emailed Andrea and have a response very quickly (within a day at the most). She responded giving me price ranges, ideas and lots of questions to get to know what we wanted for our wedding. I really didn't know what I wanted other than what flowers I didn't like and a vague idea of colours. Andrea was able to help guide me to making decisions and had PLENTY of ideas of what she thought would look good. She emailed me a write up of what she planned to do and a few sample pictures.
On the wedding day when she came to deliver our flowers, the bouquets, boutonnières, and centrepieces she created were more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. She completely captured what we were looking for in her beautiful designs.
Andrea was so easy to work with and I am so happy we chose her to be part of our wedding day. She was easily able to stay within our budget, but provide high quality services. Choose Dandie Andie Floral Designs and I guarantee you will be over the moon with Andrea's creativity.
Stunning Arrangement From A Collaborative Flourist
After the wedding, I had the flowers by my bedside every day because literally I just want to see them before I went to bed and every day when I wake up because they are just so beautiful. We had also booked a cottage weekend with friends after the wedding and I took them with me because I couldn't imagine having such a beautiful arrangement in our house without anyone to enjoy them for three days.
Andie - Thank you for working with me to find a solution that not only worked within my budget, but that had all of the elements that I was looking for. It's no word of a lie that I look at these flowers every day and am moved to tears at just how beautiful they are. I've told my husband that I'm reordering this same bouquet every year on our anniversary because it literally makes me that happy - which I never thought a bouquet of flowers would do. Thank you so much for creating such beautiful bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages that everyone loved, and that became an important and meaningful part of our day.
Beautiful flowers and great service :)
Andie worked tirelessly covering a wooden arbour with big white blooms and greenery for our big day (which was moved from the ceremony to the reception and stayed completely intact-- a testament to her hard work and precision).
I would highly recommend her as your wedding day florist as she will not disappoint. Leading up to the day she emailed me inspo pictures for each floral feature we had discussed to make sure she created exactly what I had envisioned.
She was professional, kind, creative and overall a pleasure to work with!
