    Great experience!

    We loved our wedding flowers and got so many compliments on them! They made such a difference in our decor and were gorgeous! We also rescheduled our wedding several times due to the pandemic and Laurel鈥檚 was so kind and accommodating each time. I would highly recommend them for your wedding flowers (or any flowers)!!

    Amazing to work with

    Laurels was amazing to work with this whole process. Not knowing anything beyond the difference between a daisy and a rose, they were able to guide me through picking flowers that were in season, vases and greenery and what colours would work with our venue. I had a last minute freakout thinking oxblood would be too dark and they were able to reassure me that everything would be fine, it would look gorgeous and not moody. They were 100% right. I will never have flowers that amazing again in my life, I am so happy I went with them.

    Laurel's On Whyte's reply:

    Thank you for your review, Erica!
    Even though you didn't have a strong knowledge of flower names, you had a vision and that's a great place to start! We enjoyed working with you to bring your vision to life and it was our pleasure to offer insight and wisdom into the designs for your special day!

    Wonderful Florist with a Great Sense of Style

    The most beautiful flower arrangements for our August wedding were done by John. Recommended by our wedding planner, John took the time to go over his vision with our colours and theme in mind. After our initial meeting and with many back and forth messaging through email and phone calls (which were answered promptly and quickly) everything we wanted had worked out perfectly.

    He matched the decor and theme of our wedding to the tee. It was beautiful, elegant and classy nothing was out of place. The flowers and greenery were fresh and stood the night amazingly. My bouquet was gorgeous (I believe there was a flower he thought initially would not be in season but it was in the bouquet that day, so happy to have seen it!).

    The pricing was reasonable and expected for a wedding of 100 guests, a bridal party of ten and the venue itself. It was more beautiful than what I could have ever imagined! Some of our guests were guessing the flowers alone was priced as much as our entire wedding! That was how extraordinary the arrangements were.

    John is an amazing artist with much knowledge about flowers and greenery and who has a great sense of style.
    I will always remember his words "Rest assured, the flowers will look beautiful! We don't do ugly:)"

    Thank you John from Tony and I for making our wedding a memorable one!

    Knowledgeable, nice, responsive, and reliable!

    They were very easy to work with and the flowers were beautiful! I loved having the chance to meet with an expert and discuss flowers/d茅cor options. The service was really great!

    I do have to admit that I鈥檓 disappointed with how long the flowers lasted. I鈥檓 not at all an expert when it comes to flowers so I鈥檓 not sure if this is normal or not, but our flowers started wilting pretty quickly. Even as we were taking pictures, some of the boutonnieres were completely dead and people were having to swap so that whoever was taking a picture, had the healthy boutonnieres that hadn鈥檛 wilted yet. By the next morning, at least 30% of the flowers in all the bouquets were completely wilted.

    Our wedding did take place outside, in the hot sun so that is probably why the flowers wilted too quickly. I would highly recommend to future brides to talk to your florist about flowers that will endure the weather in your wedding season.

    I still really enjoyed my experience with Laurel鈥檚 on Whyte!

    Laurel's On Whyte's reply:

    Thank you for your review Romy! We loved doing your wedding florals! The reason some of your wedding florals didn't last is because dahlias are not a very long lasting flower. Especially out of water.. they have a tendency to crash pretty quickly. Combine that with an earlier day delivery (11am), warm sunny weather and they could go downhill in a hurry. We apologize if we failed to mention that in your consultation.
    We wish you and Chris all the happiness for the future!

    They provided flowers for my wedding. I was a bit concerned that she was going to go a bit overboard with the amount of flowers she used. What we originally wanted was something very simple, but she doubled the amount of flowers we wanted because she has to buy in bulk or something. The bouquets turned out gorgeous though and I'm glad that she convinced us to double the amount of flowers. The mothers corsages were gorgeous and better than I imagined. She was great, very friendly.

    Laurel's On Whyte's reply:

    Hello Amanda,
    Thank you for your review. Unfortunately, I don't recall your wedding with us? If you could provide us with your last name, perhaps that would help us recall your wedding flowers. Thanks again!
