Simply the best!
There aren’t enough words to say THANK YOU! FlowersTime is truly amazing!!!
From the moment we first met Alina up until the wedding day (where she even helped me get my dress on!), she has been an absolute pleasure to work with! Of course she is talented and knowledgable about the industry, but more than that, she was a true friend throughout the wedding planning process. I had a hard time deciding how I wanted everything to look in terms of decor - I knew I wanted some things and not others, but didn’t have an exact vision until a few weeks out. Alina was more than willing to meet again and again, think of new ideas and suggest different things to ensure that I was 100% happy with the final product.
The entire FlowersTime team makes dreams come to life! Daria, our day-of coordinator was just fantastic. We met with her a number of times to create an itinerary and she also helped with the ceremony rehearsal - going as far as counting our steps to coordinate with the music! One of the top comments that my husband and I got after the wedding, was how smooth and organized everything was! Brides don’t understand just how hectic the wedding day can get, and trust me, you don’t want to be dealing with last minute issues right before walking down the aisle. Daria knew STEP BY STEP how I wanted the wedding to run and executed it beautifully.
Thank you so much to Alina, Daria, and the whole team for making my wedding day perfect! You are one-of-a-kind, always going above and beyond for your clients! Thank you!

(La La Land) Wedding Dreams Come to Life
We highly recommend Alina and team at Flowers Time to help dream up the flowers and décor for your wedding or upcoming event! We were referred to Alina by our wedding planning team, Fidan (Designed Dream). Alina is very passionate about her work and incredibly creative! - It is demonstrated so vibrantly in her projects.
At our first meeting we introduced our wedding theme inspiration, the movie La La Land, and she took that away with ideas from our inspiration board to come up with a truly beautiful dreamscape. She was so excited by the challenge and was quick to start drawing up ideas about how to incorporate our theme. We could tell that she is a master of her craft, her experience and artistic influences were so apparent from the way she was describing her initial thoughts. The excitement was contagious! By our final meeting, Alina had watched the movie to draw out more ideas and together with Fidan, collaborated to tell us how they would incorporate the vision. Our centrepiece sample was stunning, beyond what we were hoping for and discussed – a beautiful arrangement of purple tones, a hint of blush, white, and greenery, a tribute to the magical sunsets portrayed in the movie, atop stunning golden stands.
We weren’t quite sure how the final décor and flowers would be set up, but we were sure it was going to be amazing; she described visions of romantic candles, lampposts, stars - an outdoor landscape with flowers surrounding our sweetheart table. A few days before our wedding, Alina took the time to phone me to check-in on my thoughts for my bridal bouquet. I thought this was very thoughtful as I hadn’t quite decided how I wanted it to be (more white / less white, no colour / lots of colour, etc). She was sweet to give me her recommendation and I fully put my trust in her expertise.
The morning of our wedding, our Lead Coordinator, Carly (Designed Dream) arrived with our bouquets which did not disappoint; they were absolutely beautiful! My bridesmaids loved them, and so did I! It was like a carefully thought out smaller version of our centrepiece, which really complimented my gorgeous girls and their dresses and the overall feeling of the day. It was so fun to have such pretty florals, I didn’t realize how much I loved fresh flowers especially in bloom in the spring.
Our ceremony was held at a church and we celebrated with 2 majestic floral stands by the front to frame us, just as discussed. It was so beautiful just enough to amp up our ceremony space, in a simply elegant refined way. Once we arrived at the venue for our reception, we had our room reveal lead by Fidan (see our reaction on Designed Dream’s Instagram!) and we could not believe just how spectacular it all came together. The room was beyond gorgeous, the magical romantic ambiance set by lampposts/candles were so stunningly set among the beautiful delicate flowers. It was like a dreamy garden inspired by La La Land. Also really loved the beautiful choice of overlay and linens, detailed lace with gold sequins which was stunning and complimented the details in my dress so perfectly.
We received so many positive comments on the amazing experience our family and friends had on our day - without a doubt, the romantic magic of the flowers and décor that made up all the fantastic intricate details of our dream wedding played a key factor. Thank you so very much from the bottom of our hearts to Alina and everyone at Flowers Time for your love and care in curating such wonderful gorgeous details for us on our special day. xoxo, Cristina and Patrick

There are no words in the vocabulary to describe the quality of service provided by Alina and her team. Not only are their creations simply a work of art but their energy and the way they deliver their service is unlike any other service available on the market. I highly recommend this team for their commitment, passion, style, clear communication and everything else in between. Thank you so much for bringing our dream to life, all of our guests haven't stopped talking about the décor of our wedding for over a week now. Thank you so much for your attention to detail and the special touch you provided on our very special day.

February wedding with 270 guests - "MAGNIFICENT"
THE BEST!! It is hard to properly describe how incredible Alina was to work with and how amazing the flowers and decor were at my wedding. Truly, the most beautiful decor I have ever seen. I met with a few florists beforehand and felt a connection with Alina that set her apart. She seemed to understand my vision even though it felt like I couldn't describe it properly, and was patient and flexible throughout the entire process. She put me at ease and made me feel fully confident. Alina met with me several times and was easily accessible via phone/email. She designed a breathtaking chuppa and a truly magical room. The execution was beyond anything I could have imagined (aisle, chuppa, bouquets, tables, flower crowns etc.). We had a large wedding that involved a room flip and everything was done timely and beautifully. The level of detail and cohesiveness of design was unbelievable. We had discussed many of the details in our meetings but Alina went above and beyond and provided much more. I have been receiving ongoing messages from our guests about how stunning and "magnificent" everything was and we have not stopped looking back at pictures. As professional as she was, it felt very personal as well (we both cried when she showed me my bridal bouquet). Alina and FlowersTime, I cannot tell you how much I appreciate everything. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Alina and the entire team and flowers time exceeded my expectations by far!!! My dream of a winter wonderland wedding was so beautifully organized and put together by Alina and she took her time to explain everything and ensure I loved all the details of the decor, arrangements, and centerpieces. Thank you again for everything Alina.. you helped make my wedding day as beautiful as I could ever imagine!! :)

Flowers Time recently provided the flowers and decor for my wedding- wow! From our first encounter, I had a really good feeling from Alina. She was so excited about my vision for my wedding. My mom (who is a difficult person to please!) was happy to provide a deposit on the spot. Alina took my vision, which I obviously liked and took it to a whole other level. From our simple yet beautiful chuppah to our lovely centrepieces and bouquets and linens- everything was absolutely stunning. Alina and her team went above and beyond my expectations and I had no hesitation placing my trust in them. Communicating with Alina before the wedding was also a breeze- she was very available to chat over email or over the phone. Several guests asked who our florist was and we are definitely recommending Flowers Time to our families and friends.

We couldn't have been happier with our decision to go with flowers time for the decoration of our wedding. It can get a a bit overwhelming, but Alina made sure our vision was understood and had no problem working around our schedule and whatever changes we wanted to make. The room looked amazing and people were very impress with the quality of our centre pieces. I have preserved my bouquet and its beautiful ! thank you so much !

I cannot thank Alina and her wonderful team at Flowers Time and Engineered Arts enough for the beautiful and magical floral decor she created for us for our wedding. She was an absolute delight to work with and she has such an amazing eye for design. She is the top designer and florist in Canada and I would highly recommend her! Her shop also affiliated with Engineered Arts, which designs custom foam creations, and for my vision of the wedding, there was none other that could have achieved it other than Alina.
I contacted flowers time because I saw on their Instagram a pair of beautiful angel wings that I wanted to incorporate into my wedding. So when my husband and I first visited her shop, I brought with me a sketch I did of my dream ceremony with those wings. I talked about the inspirations for my ideas and I could see the light in Alina's eyes -- she was just as excited as I am to implement those dreams! Over the next few months, I emailed her with questions on a regular basis and she always answered within an hour. No other vendor is as responsive as she is, and it was really refreshing and easy to work with her.
The theme of my wedding was 'magic' and I wanted magical trees as centerpieces. Alina worked with Engineered arts to create custom winding tree trunks to achieve the mystical look. When I saw the sample she made for me at her shop, I was so overcome with joy that I was screaming and jumping up and down! Take a look at my sketch below and how the actual wedding turned out, it literally is a dream come true!! I thought that was going above and beyond... but she had more pleasant surprises for me...
The original plan was to reuse the angel wings at the ceremony behind the headtable.... but Alina and Engineered Arts made me another pair of majestic wings, standing at 10ft tall!!! and NO, she did NOT charge anything extra for it. The wings were absolutely gorgeous, my guests were in awe. Paired with the ivory drapes and lights, it was the perfect backdrop for a magical night.
After the wedding I received multiple inquiries from my friends and family asking who is my florist, and I have been very very proud to recommend flowers time!
Thank you Alina and your team, what am amazing job you have done!
