    I can't say enough wonderful things about Daphne for my and Duy's wedding on June 10, 2017. Not only were the flowers gorgeous yet reasonably priced, but Daphne also gave us a beautiful background to get married in front of. And as a bride who hadn't thought much about what kind of wedding I wanted to have, Daphne was very patient with me and had great ideas. The end result was a wedding that was simple, yet glamorous and perfect.

    I hired Daphne to do the floral arrangements and bouquets at my wedding 5/13/17 and she did a great job. I only explained to her what I wanted and she created exactly what I envisioned. Her prices were extremely reasonable and affordable. You won't be disappointed if you go with her.

    Daphne was everything I expected and more. I found Daphne online and her work looked very nice. We met and discussed my vision along with Daphne's ideas and the planning began. The package was reasonable and I did not feel I was being overcharged by no means. My bouquet was so beautiful, unlike any I've ever seen, not to mention the touches she added to the ceremony. The reception, wow, the centerpieces and everything she added to the tables were perfect!!!! I'm hoping she was able to get some nice shots of everything!!! I would highly recommend Elite Designs by Daphne and if I'm ever in need of her services again I will definitely call!!!!! Thanks again Daphne, I received so many nice compliments on your work!!!

    Daphne is THE BEST!
    Daphne is amazing! She brought my vision to life. For months and months I worried about whether I was choosing the right decor, flowers, etc., but every time we spoke throughout the months she reassured me that everything was going to be beautiful, and it truly was! She delivered and did exactly what she said she was going to do. Everything was amazing and we received sooooo many compliments from our guest during the wedding/reception! Daphne is very professional, timely, and was a pleasure to work with. I would recommend Elite Designs to anyone and I plan to book their services again for future events. Not to mention, she m created our invitations and all other stationary items related to the wedding and did a superb job. My husband and I were beyond pleased with everything! Our wedding was September 18th, and we're still on cloud nine!

    Daphne provided drapery & lighting decor for my wedding ceremony! My experience with her from the very beginning wad great! She was very professional, prompt & easy to communicate with. She provided visuals to compliment our phone consultation to help me envision what the decor would look like for the ceremony. She set up promptly at the wedding ceremony and even stayed to move het set up as a backdrop for our sweetheart table for the reception. I'd work with her again in a heartbeat & highly recommend her services to anyone else in need. She's also very affordable!

    I found Daphne through Thumbtack in a last minute rush of planning my wedding ( I was trying to be a DIY bride!) Daphne quickly responded to my inquiry and decided to meet with me to help hone in on my vision for the wedding day. She was a LIFESAVER and and ANGEL! Her ability to think quickly and help with last minute items affirmed my confidence in her. She combined her beautiful tall floral scapes with the fresh flowers I already purchased. From the reception to the ceremony, everything looked amazing! Her personal touches were every where and I could not have had such a beautiful day without her. She knows her stuff when it comes to silk and fresh flower arrangements!

Research the average cost for the services you require.

Be up front with your provides on the price point you are comfortable with, Look for review on vendor that you are considering, select vendor who can work with your "reasonable" budget.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
Here are some things you should bring with you when meeting with your florist for the first time. The most important part of picking out your ideal wedding-day flowers is matching it with the rest of your wedding. You'll want each arrangement to complement your space, your gown, and your wedding party. So when you meet with the florist for the first time it's a good idea to bring as many pictures as possible. Pictures of the spaces you'll need decorated, pictures or sketches of your gown and your bridesmaid's gowns, and pictures of what the groom and groomsmen plan on wearing. It's also a good idea to bring in inspiration clips, magazines clippings of decor ideas you like, your favorite pins. Fabric swatches are important too, so that your florist can not only get a good feel for the colors involved but the texture to all of your looks. Don't forget to bring a complete checklist of what flowers you'll need. A list of everything you want, from the flowers you and your wedding party will be carrying, to the arrangements you want at your ceremony and reception site.
