I am getting married on 10/2/10 and I am using Royal Design Flowers as my florist. I met with 3 other florists in the area before deciding on Royal Design. I had a wonderful experience with her and appreciated her honesty, professionalism, and feedback when it came to suggestions, pricing and ideas. She took the time to explain my options, and she was able to stay within my budget without sacrificing quality or design. I would highly recommend Royal Design Flowers, in fact I have, and the work she did recently for a friends wedding was simply amazing. I honestly have not seen more beautiful work, and I was told she even went above and beyond when she delivered the flowers, by helping the coordinator decorate an area of the reception that the coordinator was running short on time doing. Frankly, I think it’s short sighted to judge the quality of professionalism based off not meeting someone in their “studio”. So what if a vendor doesn’t have a studio? I don’t know if she does or not, but why is that such a concern to you as long as she does beautiful work? Are you getting married in her studio? Actually, the very thing you are using to make your decision could actually be a benefit to you because let’s just suppose she doesn’t have a studio….if that were the case, at least she would not be passing on her overhead expense to you….you might want to consider that!
