Perfectly executed my vision for wedding flowers!

We could not have been happier with our experience at Thistles! Maggie was wonderful to work with! After just the first consultation, she had tons of ideas to match my color scheme and budget. She answered all of my questions quickly and even sent pictures of different centerpiece rental options. Our wedding ceremony had a chuppah which was decorated beautifully and looked great in pictures! Our wedding was in Des Moines but delivery from Thistles was reasonably priced and definitely worth it!

Very friendly

I went with my mom to look at flowers and she had a slide show. I鈥檓 terrible with matching and she would tell me what I could do and what would match!

Wedding by Thistle

Maggie at Thistle Was absolutely amazing to work with! She responds quickly to emails and brought my vision to life based off of one single Pinterest photo. She made my wedding look magical with her floral creations! Everyone commented on how beautiful the flowers were!
