Beware. Write everything in contract or she will scam your life. Complete liar. Amy Guzzardo ruined our entire wedding day. She cheated us, and did not fulfill half of what she agreed to. She hung up on me multiple times and was VERY unprofessional, and never answered her phone for weeks. Come the wedding day, my entire bouqet was falling apart and hanging from the minute I received it. Her work is very poor. She says and agrees to one thing, and the next day she will say she never agreed to it and fight with you. She is a complete liar. She agreed to have roses & tulling done at my house in verbal contract, and charged us a lot for it, and did not put one single rose on the stairway, and claims that we never had it in our contract... She took advantage of us because it wasn't in writing. So we ended up having to pay A LOT for cheap tulling that probably costed $10 from Joann Fabrics. She also claimed to have many things at the hall and did not. Make sure to have EVERYTHING in writing to prevent her from lying and scamming your life. I can continue on for hours about all the mistakes Amy made. I will never recommend this person, and I want to help save every bride's wedding day who considers working with this vendor. Run away.

Amy Guzzardo was the florist my wife and I hired for our wedding. After a year of planning, we had anticipated all of our work with Amy to be put to life for our big day. Sadly, that was not the case. When we walked into the reception hall, we were expecting to be brought to tears of joy, not sadness. Instead, my wife was immediately distraught. Amy's work, or lack-thereof, completely destroyed our special day. This was something we were extremely eager to see after all of the planning, yet we were left with nothing but devastation. There was an immeasurable amount of things we had contracted with Amy that were not delivered. The actual work she had put in was nothing short of horrendous. We were in complete and utter shock once we stepped into the hall. The poor quality of her work was truly unfathomable. I believe it is extremely essential to have trust in someone working for your wedding day. However, we had to find out the hard way that Amy was someone who was very untrustworthy, regarding her work. I do not want anyone else to have to experience this. If you expect to get what you had asked and planned for on your wedding day, I highly recommend not seeking Amy Guzzardo.

Amy Guzzardo is a true floral genius. I honestly couldn't be happier that I chose her and her company for our wedding. Both my mother and I are type-A personalities and very particular when it comes to decor. We initially met with Amy to give her our vision and because she had never been to our venue I was nervous she wouldn't really understand where we were coming from. The ceremony location was a grassy garden on the 8th floor of a downtown high-rise hotel. Surrounded by other high-rise buildings we wanted to incorporate simple elegance that wouldn’t be overwhelmed by the urban surroundings. She and her team created pieces that held their own and created the elegant “downtown” feel that we were looking for. The reception is where she really knocked our socks off. We were getting married at a swanky 1930’s art deco jazz club which has enough charm on its own so we didn’t need much. This time I wanted the floral to have an understated elegance as not to overwhelm the venue. Unfortunately because I live out of town I wasn’t able to meet Amy at the venue and my mom had to go in my place. As I said before she is very particular as am I so I was worried that our visions would not align. Amy understood what we were looking for right away. Because the venue is low-lit we decided on amber up-lighting as well as lots of candles on top of the minimal but pretty arrangements. When I walked into the reception the day of the wedding the floral and décor took my breath away. It was truly the most amazing scene that I had ever seen. The night was a bit of a blur and any details are hard for me to recall but I do remember standing mesmerized by the amazing arrangements, stunning candle runners and artistic placement. They fit in the environment so perfectly and brought an intimate feeling to an already charming venue. I couldn’t recommend her more and neither could my mother (and that doesn’t happen very often)!!!!

I had Designs by Guzzardo's do the flowers for my wedding. Everything was just beautiful!!! I worked with Rhonda and she did an amazing job putting all of my flowers together. The price was reasonable and the i received a ton of compliments on how everything looked. I would definitely recommend this vendor to anyone looking for a florist.

Was late for every appointment that she didn't cancel. Her work was decent, after I had to redesign everything b/c she did not listen to me or what I wanted. She was very nice but was all over the place and very over priced for what I ordered.

Best decision we ever made was going through Designs By Guzzardos. I could honestly say I had a problem with almost every vendor EXCEPT my florist. If I were to do it all over again, I would NOT change a thing when it comes to Designs By Guzzardos. Amy and all her staff made our wedding phenominal! She went above and beyond what I had ever expected! I am a very hard person to please and I told her that from the beginning and explained that I am never satisfied and to not take it personal if I don't get the expression she wanted. Honestly, when I walked in, the hall took my breath away! I almost started crying! BEST FLORIST EVER!

It was wonderful working with Design by Guzzardos and is especially helpful that they do other decorations such as linens, chargers and lighting in addition to the beautiful flowers.

If it weren't for Designs by Guzzardos I would of had a stressful time planning my wedding. Amy Guzzardo was an excellent wedding planner, creative florist, and a professional individual to work with. She planned and decorated my wedding as if it were her own. She and her staff went above and beyond in making my wedding become the way I invisioned and more! I strongly reccommend Designs By Guzzardos and you will have no regrets! They get the job done the right way! :)

I had an amazing experience working with Amy Guzzardo. I had a definite vision going into my wedding. I don't know much about flowers, but Amy helped my vision come to life. I am still hearing today, almost a year after my wedding, how gorgeous the flowers were. They were so bright and beautiful! (Yellow flowers in spring - what could be better?)

Also, I had a kind of strange request for my bridesmaids bouquets - Yellow Italian Mimosa flowers. I had no idea what they were - but I saw a picture in a magazine and they were beautiful. Amy called them something else... I don't remember their actual name. But they are a difficult flower to work with. As they were drying out, they were turning brown, so poor Amy stayed up the night before the wedding misting them with water and making sure they stayed bright yellow. As the evening went on, she realized that there could be a possible disaster tomorrow, so she made 6 entirely new bouquets for my bridesmaids using yellow tulips (where are my all time favorite flowers). She then brought both sets of bouquets to my house for me to choose from. Disaster averted! We used the Italian Mimosa bouquets for pictures, and the tulip bouquets for the ceremony. She went above and beyond the call of duty for me and my wedding.

I cannot express my gratitude in words - everything was perfect because of her!
