    Simply Elegant Floral Designs was wonderful to work with for our wedding! She was very flexible and traveled to our venue in NC. The quality and creativity was superb and we had guests giving so many positive comments about the decor and flowers. When my husband and I walked into the reception hall was were so pleased with how beautiful and magical it felt. Melody Saunders was fun to work with and was willing to work very hard to make the day perfect!

    Melody is an amazing, super talented florist. Melody offered suggestions, inspiration, and a compassionate ear throughout our flower selection process. Melody was timely with her email responses and organized with her timeline as our florist. Our flowers were incredibly beautiful, special, personal and affordable...what more could a bride want! When Melody handed me my bouquet I cried it was so beautiful! Our flowers were by far our favorite detail of our wedding and I am excited I get to share my experience with all you future brides out there. Simply Elegant Floral Designs is the best there is! Thank you Melody and your wonderful team of ladies for helping to make this brides dream come true.

    Melody was excellent, she was flexible when I needed to change items, and helped me pick what would look best. The flowers were beautiful and healthy looking and stayed fresh for almost 2 weeks.

    WOW!!! What can i say about my experience with Simply Elegant Floral designs. when my flower delivery arrived i was in awe! the flowers were more than i expected. fresh, elegant, vibrant colors, and in good shape. their customer service is impeccable. the flowers were still alive and beautiful for almost three weeks after the wedding. i'm just in a loss for words when it comes to expressing my feelings about the floral team. i would recommend them to anyone! they exceeded my expectations and here I am three months later still in complete amazement about my flowers. i have given her number to four people already. i'm planning on using them again for my Mom's big 60th birthday bash, and my brother is using them for his wedding also. thank you for making my wedding perfect!!!!

    Melody was so wonderful to work with! Talking with her in the beginning helped me to define what it was exactly that I was hoping/looking for in my wedding flowers. She was flexible and more than willing to find the best flowers I could find within my price range. In the end, I really couldn't have been any more pleased with how they turned out! I LOVED my wedding flowers, and I can definitely recommend Simply Elegant Floral Designs and Melody Saunders for anyone who is looking for flowers to round out a perfect wedding!

    Melody swooped in and saved the day for me when another local florist booked another wedding while we were waiting for her proposal. This incident was definitely meant to be so I would have the opportunity to have Simply Elegant handle my wedding floral needs. Melody provided professionalism and her wonderful personal touch was a godsend at a very stressful time for me. All of my guests commented on my flowers and asked who was my florist- especially the bridal bouquet and groom's boutennierre, in which Melody incorporated items that had deep sentimental value for us and represented family members that are no longer with us. That addition was a priceless addition to our special night. Thank you so much for that Melody. I would have never thought of that on my own and it felt as though my mom was there with me. I will never be able to thank you enough for that. Anyone wanting breathtaking flowers and a special "personal touch", should not hesitate to use Simply Elegant Floral Designs. Thanks again Melody and much love to you and your staff.

    Melody was fabulous and took care of all my flowers and decor needs. Since she was one of my first vendors to arrive on my wedding day, she even spent a significant amount of time making sure I was okay and ready to go. Weddings are so stressful, so it's such a blessing to have a professional, high quality vendor to ensure not a single thing goes wrong. Thanks so much Melody for making my wedding as perfect as it could be.

    Melody is so wonderful to work with. I was a bride with lots of ideas, but not direction. Just a few minutes after working with Melody we had my colors and types of flowers all picked out. When I had a last minute change she easily worked with me to create just what I needed. Her great idea to include a small "treasure" on my flowers (which my mom picked out) and my husbands (that I picked out) really made the flowers more sentimental on the wedding day. The flowers were perfectly in bloom and the colors were radiant. I am still getting compliments on how beautiful the flowers turned out.

    I just loved my flowers, they were so beautiful. I knew I wanted white roses for my bouquet and I really wanted rhinestones also but I didn't know if that was possible, well she made me the exact bouquet I have always dreamed of, rhinestones included! Also, I wasn't really sure what kind of Bridesmaids bouquets I wanted and she actually gave me a lot of ideas about what would look pretty and she also matched the color of the roses in their bouquets to their dresses and it was a perfect match! Everything that she did just looked so perfect together, I gave her a few simple ideas of what I wanted and she helped me come up with the most perfect ensemble for my wedding, I am still getting compliments on it all. She was also so easy to work with, she was so helpful and welcoming and just put you at ease when you entered her shop. Her prices were also extremely fair and we got an amazing deal for the package that we received. I would recommend her to any and every bride that's getting married!

    My bouquet was great. They were wonderful with the whole arrangement especially because it fell on Mother's Day weekend and we arranged for the bouquet only 2 weeks in advance. Loved everything!

    Working with Melody at Simply Elegant was awesome. When she says she treats her brides like her daughter, she isn't lying. We had to change our whole color scheme a couple weeks before the wedding and I thought it would be a disaster in the end. We sat down with Melody and sorterd everything out. Me being me, was still nervouse because of the sudden change. When I saw the flowers for the first time on my wedding day, I lost my breath. They were beautiful. The colors were bright and vibrant and everything and more I could have asked for. Thank you so much Melody for making my day so beautiful. I would recommend Simply Elegant to any bride who wants her flowers and decor to look amazing and get the attention she needs.

    Melody is awesome! I would recommend her to any bride who is looking for a florist for their wedding! She did an amazing job on our wedding. She went above and beyond with her special touches and ideas! She puts her own personal touch on each wedding so each one is unique and special to each bride. She was like having an advisor and a florist all in one, and for me she was my rock who kept me sane through the whole planning process. I recommended her to my best friend who just got married and she did an amazing job for her, too! I definitely recommend Simply Elegant Floral Designs! You will not be dissappointed, I promise.

    Melody's service was superb, though the prices were a bit higher than I had expected. Her knowledge of floral arrangements is extensive and she was able to incorporate every detail I requested. My guests and I were delighted with Melody's creative and beautiful displays that fit the setting perfectly. Next time I need a florist in Georgia, melody will be the one I call. Highly recommended.

    I absolutely loved working with Melody. She really listens to you and can help you come up with ideas that will make your day beautifully perfect! I went to her with only 2 requirements; that there not be any roses and that my grandmother's flowers be silk (allergy reasons). Melody spent time talking to me so she could figure out my personality and make sure that my flowers were something that would suite me. She had so many great ideas and I felt like she really cared about my wedding day as much as my husband and I did. All of the flowers were elegant, but there was still an element of fun to everything. I don't think that anyone could have captured my personality and what I dreamed about better. I would recommend using Simply Elegant Floral Designs to anyone who wants their flowers (and even their cake decorations) to be exactly perfect!

    The florist was very helpful helping me select a beautiful wedding bouquet, especially since I did not know what exactly I wanted. The flowers were delivered to the wedding venue on time. However, when they brought me my bouquet, two mini calilies in my bouquet were wilted and the yellow roses had brown around edges and in the middle of the petals. Two of my bridesmaids calilies were already wilting and the wedding had not even started. The flowers did not last as long after that. Overall the flowers did not look fresh and I was disappointed when I saw them. Just in case if you are wondering, Yes I did have an outdoor wedding, but the flowers were in their kept in the house in the vases until it was time for us to walk down the aisle.

    A Design by Melody's reply:

    I am so sorry to hear that. I do have photo's of your flowers prior to delivered and all was in perfect condition. However, your wedding was held outdoors on the hottest day of the year thus far which could explain the wilting of the flowers. The venue coordinator commented on how beautiful the flowers were and said she hadn't see such pretty flowers in a very long time. Once again, I am so sorry to hear about this.
