Last Petal Floral exceeded my expectations when delivering the floral and decor for my wedding ceremony and reception. They are a one stop shop for floral, decor, design, delivery, and setup. Melanie has a large selection of rental options to accompany the floral arrangements which was helpful because it was one less vendor to work with and it made for a really cohesive look and feel. With my Pinterest board and her knowledge of the venue (Omni Barton Creek), she made my vision of succulents (I got to keep them after the wedding!) and muted flowers come to life for my April 2016 wedding. Myself, my family and my guests, were blown away by the results! It was just perfect!
Besides being so happy with the outcome, working with Melanie the months leading up to the event, was an absolute pleasure. She is kind and calm and was willing to work within my budget, letting me know where to spend more money and where to spend less, based on what people will notice. You will love your flowers and your experience if you choose Last Petal to be the florist for your wedding. FIVE STARS!

I had a MOH work with Melanie to design the florals for my 1/30 wedding on Brazos Hall's roof deck. I knew I liked sunflowers, I knew I liked hydrangeas and that was about all I knew so I was glad when my MOH found a vendor who knew her stuff as well as Melanie did. When she showed up with the most gorgeous bouquets I have ever seen, I could not have been happier. She attached a very special pin that my late father had given me to my bouquet and I was not at all concerned it would get lost - that thing was connected! Arriving at our venue and seeing how amazing the florals looked and how well they tied to the bouquets - it was a dream. Thank you so much for helping to make our best night ever even more special!

The flowers that Melanie did for my wedding were amazing. She managed to stay in my budget and made the bouquets better than I had dreamt of. Melanie even had someone meet me last minute to pick up the shotgun shells for the groomsmen's boutonnieres. She was easy to talk to and understood exactly what I was going for. I loved everything she had done for other weddings and did not disappoint with mine. My bridesmaids have been in a ton of weddings and said they were so impressed and loved my flowers. Thanks Melanie!!
