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.
the flowers were so pretty. The centerpieces were wonderful. everything I thought it would be
Great customer service. Flowers were amazing!!!!
I was beyond impressed with Designs By Guzzardos! I asked for a "Winter Wonderland" and my expectations were exceeded! Amy Guzzardo made every tiny detail just perfect!
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!
Amy is absolutely amazing! From the very first second that my sister and I met her she was on onboard with my vision. Amy made my wedding dreams become a reality. People are still talking about our beautiful wedding!!!!!
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.
Jon and I thought that Amy and everyone did a Fantastic job! We were very impressed, and everything exceeded our expectations! Thank You again, so very much!!
We loved the time we spent planning with Amy. She did an amazing job and gave us everything we wanted.
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! :)
Amy and her team did an amazing job. We truly had the wedding of our dreams. It will be our one year anniversary next week and we still receive compliments about our beautiful our wedding was. Thanks to Amy. We are so happy we trusted in her and if we could do it all over again we would choose her again without a doubt.
We love you! Thank You!

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!
I had planned nothing short of a beautiful wedding. I contracted Amy Guzzardo with Designs by Guzzardo to do my flowers and decor for my wedding. Everything was written in contract and every detail discussed, so there would be no confusion. When it came to the day of my wedding, I was in utter shock and surprise. Nothing that I had planned was done. My bouquet was completely different than I told her I wanted. The color of the groomsmen boutineers were a different color. Instead of beautiful white flowers on the pews in the church, she put dead upside down miniature roses. No flowers on my bridesmaid tables. A different gazebo for where we sat as the bride and groom. Worst of all is that she put feathers instead of orchids to cut costs and fill in for flowers!!! Feathers?!!! I had never seen anything so cheap!! This was a disaster and something I would not want anyone else to go through!! I was paying her more than $25,000 and she ruined the most important day of my life. If you want your dream wedding and no problems I highly suggest you consider a new florist and don't let this one near your wedding day!
