Seamless, one of the best things I did for wedding planning
So let me tell you planning a wedding from another state was daunting! I had an idea of what I wanted, but no idea how to make it happen or what vendors I would actually need. Insert Susan and magic! She knew the venue and she knew there were things I would need that hadn’t occurred to me. Not fancy things just bare basics I was unaware of. Then there was getting a permit...that made me a little nervous as I was planning a wedding in 4 months. No worries, Susan knows that guy too. She pretty much made things seamless. She can insert herself as little or as much as you like. Basically she’s worth more than she charges!! Hire herSent on 11/04/2019

Susan is absolutely amazing!!! I thoroughly enjoyed having her as my wedding planner. She went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed for my wedding. She understood that I had a budget and she did everything she could to help me stay within that budget. Everything went smoothly the day of the wedding and it is mainly thanks to her as she knew my vision and made sure to coordinate with all the vendors. If you’re looking for a wedding planner, I would highly recommend Susan! (Oh and as a former florist, she knows a lot about flowers which is a big plus!)Sent on 10/11/2018

Susan did our floral arrangments for our wedding 8/20/16 and all the floral arrangements turned out so beautiful! I was in LOVE LOVE LOVE with my bride's bouquet and all the centerpieces. Susan was helpful at our consultation and listened to everything that I wanted and gave her recommendations on things I didn't know about. It was helpful that she put together a website with the types of flowers she was going to use at our wedding and gave a rough estimate of how much everything was going to cost. I would recommend Susan to anyone and everyone who is looking for a florist for their wedding and/or any event!Sent on 08/26/2016
10% off sales total for all military service personnel (excludes tax and delivery/set up fee). This deal is valid only for active duty and retired military personnel (bride and groom only).
Cannot be combined with any other deal!
Susan is wonderful!
I highly recommend Accolades Florist/SW Floral Design. Susan is an incredibly talented floral designer who will work with the bride and groom until everything is exactly what they were looking for. Her industry knowledge also helps couples put their design ideas together and then make them a reality.
Susan was the florist that was hired by the couple I was coordinating their wedding for. Susan is a great florist that delivers on time and sets up beautifully! Of course, the flowers and arrangements were great too. I can't count how many times florists simply drop off their flowers or (worse yet) have the couple (or one of their friends/family) pick them up because they are charging too much for the delivery. This puts myself and my assistant in a tough spot if we did not anticipate having to do all the floral set up. Susan is one of the few in the area where this did not happen. Her passion for flowers truly showed throughout the setup. It was a pleasure!
