Best florist in the dmv!
Shelly is AMAZING!! She is truly an artist and goes above and beyond for her clients. We used her services for our recent summer 2019 wedding, and honestly we feel lucky to have found such an amazing florist who made the decor part of the wedding absolutely seamless. We had originally talked to 6 very reputable/popular florists in the DMV and our experience with these other florists was that some were non-responsive (like we had to email several times to follow up!), some had a minimum (as of this review, Shelly did not), some gave us a proposal TWICE the amount of our budget (this happened 2x!). It was honestly exhausting! However, working with Shelly was seamless. She met us late in the evening near our place of work for the first mtg and she really sticks to your budget! At one point she even took off 300$ worth of merchandise b/c she didn’t think some of the stuff we had asked for was necessary - she is not the typical salesman who tries to push you to buy everything- rather, she truly wants your event to look as aesthetically pleasing as possible (even if it means taking off 300$ worth of merchandise because she thought it looked too crowded). Her florals are beautiful, and she also has stunning rentals, including large candelabras that are just beautiful. She is extremely responsive via email (10/10 on the organizational front). Shelly was recommended to us by another couple, who used her services again recently for another event. We cannot wait for our next event so that we can work with her again! We got married at a downtown DC hotel, and even our very seasoned hotel coordinator (who has likely worked with hundreds of florists in the DMV area) had so many compliments about Shelly, including “she’s going to the top of our list.” We recommended her to another friend for their winter wedding, and Shelly was booked already. Honestly, shopping for vendors is exhausting (especially when you both work full time)- save yourself some time and energy - if you want an easy, talented, reliable, honest, organized florist to work with, book her ASAP!Sent on 07/23/2019

Shelly was recommended to me by a friend—and I have never been more grateful for a recommendation in my life! Shelly was beyond amazing.
While planning for my wedding, I had no idea what flowers would cost, or what I was comfortable spending. She was so helpful, and never once did I feel pressured into anything. When we first met to talk about what I thought we wanted for our wedding, Shelly asked me what kinds of flowers I liked, and colors. She showed me some of her work, and then said she would put a quote together for me. She was so easy to work with, and incredibly flexible while we were planning, making suggestions and helping to make the flowers OUR flowers. If I could have kept my flowers alive forever, I would have! Shelly and her team worked to create the most beautiful display for our ceremony, cocktail hour, and reception. Our flowers were our only real décor and I wouldn’t change a thing. If you have the opportunity to work with Shelly, do it!

Don't think twice - hire B Floral Event Design
I hired B. Florals Event Design to do the flowers for our wedding and have no regrets! Shelly is absolutely fabulous to work with and has impeccable taste. After talking with several other floral designers in the DC area, I found her prices to be similar, however, as of this review, Shelly doesn’t have a set minimum. The latter was wonderful news since we weren’t having a bridal party. After meeting with Shelly and seeing more of her designs, I knew I wanted to work with her. Shelly took the time to listen to my ideas and help bring my vision to life seamlessly all the while staying within our budget. She was very professional and quick to respond to any of my questions. My only request was for bright, bold flowers with interesting texture, and Shelly designed exactly that. Shelly attended our walk-through one month prior to our wedding, which I truly appreciated because I wanted to add a floral design down the staircase. Shelly was more than happy to do this. The day of the wedding the flowers were delivered and set up on time, which was great because my husband and I were doing a first look elsewhere. I have a few friends who are flower fanatics so are centerpieces did not go to waste and were taken home. Shelly’s attention to detail and unmatched expertise in aesthetics will never disappoint. My experience working with Shelly was wonderful, and I highly recommend contacting B. Floral Event Design for your next event or special occasion.Sent on 07/25/2019

Thoughtful advice and stunning results! Thank you Shelly!
I can't say enough great things about Shelly and the team at B Floral Design. She was so helpful in thinking through the vision and decor for our wedding day, and the results were absolutely stunning. Working with her couldn't have been easier. She was so responsive, extremely transparent in her pricing, and very collaborative and helpful in thinking through our needs. We appreciated her advice all the way through to our wedding day, and loved the end result! Thank you Shelly!Sent on 02/09/2019

Shelley was amazing! Not only was she a good listener as to what we wanted, she was flexible as we changed our minds, creative, and basically went over and above what we had expected. Everything was beautiful! Thanks for creating our dream!Sent on 06/25/2018

I cannot recommend Shelly enough! People are still talking about how stunning everything was. She created a jaw dropping floral arch for us - exactly what I had imagined. She listened to my ideas and vision and nailed it. Every detail was perfect - floral arch, dramatic escort card table arrangement, bouquets - every single detail. She is absolutely amazing and a dream to work with - incredibly responsive and helpful. Absolutely in awe!!Sent on 05/02/2018

Shelly was absolutely fantastic to work with! I didn't have a firm idea of what I wanted, so we came to the first meeting with just some colors and general photos. She met us at her warehouse and showed us photos of arrangements she'd done in the past, pulled things off of the shelves around us to give us a better idea of what our options were, and knew our venue so well she even recommended some other things. I never had to worry about checking in with Shelly to make sure everything was alright -- she was reaching out at regular intervals to remind me of what the next steps were. On our wedding day the flowers were beautiful, and she delivered to both my hotel room and the venue without a problem and at exactly the time I asked. Of all the things I worried about leading up to the wedding, B Floral Event Design was never one of them.Sent on 06/09/2018

Shelly and B Floral was recommended to me by our coordinator, Caroline Dutton, and after our meeting to discuss the day, I didn't need to talk to anyone else. Shelly understood what I wanted and was able to make modifications to a few items to fit the ceremony space.
One thing I wanted to incorporate, which aren't usually associated with weddings, were pussy willows and Shelly knocked it out of the park. There were pussy willows throughout the arrangements, which gave texture and warmth to everything, and they were the feature on the cocktail tables - I loved it.
Flowers were one of the things where I was nervous about the cost vs. value add, but not only did I feel shelly was 100% reasonably in her pricing, her designs also really added to the day.Sent on 04/18/2018

I cannot say enough about Shelly at B Floral! We had so many compliments on her arrangements at our wedding. Her prices beat competitors by more than half. She's awesome and I have already recommended her to friends getting married next year in the DC/VA/MD area.Sent on 08/22/2017

Great service from Shelley! Loved my wedding flowers! I had lots of different requests and changed my mind about various things throughout the process and she changed the plan easily. She was very friendly and easy to work with. She even dropped off the flowers for my hair to the salon, even though we hadn't previously discussed her doing that. She seemed to totally understand my vision and was easy going! She provided us with a chuppah as well which was gorgeous. Everyone was complimentary of the flower décor.Sent on 08/24/2017
Becky · Married on 05/27/2017
Shelly at B Floral and event design was amazing to work with. She was the first vendor after our venue that we hired and I'm so glad that we did. She worked with us to hear what we wanted, work within our budget, think about creative ways to get multiple uses out of our flowers, brainstormed with us on additional decor items, was extremely flexible as we thought through our decisions and made changes as we got closer to the event, and ultimately delivered absolutely gorgeous flower arrangements and decor items! It completely surpassed our expectations. And Shelly did all of this with a smile on her face, a friendly and warm demeanor and an easy-going attitude. She worked really well with our other vendors and was an absolute pleasure for us to work with as well. Thank you for doing such an amazing job on our wedding Shelly!Sent on 09/05/2017

We worked with Shelly and B Floral Event Design for our March wedding. Shelly is truly an excellent florist and businesswoman. She was so helpful and courteous and most of all, she is extremely knowledgeable in her area of expertise. We relied on Shelly to create our dream chuppah for our ceremony and it exceeded expectations. In addition, Shelly was able to reuse our ceremony candles in our reception to help meet our budget. We both highly recommend Shelly and B Floral to any couple getting married in the D.C. area!!Sent on 03/25/2017

Shelly is a FABULOUS florist. I have to be honest, florals were pretty much last on our list of priorities for our wedding and I struggled to find a vendor whose work I liked that would work with our budget. Most of the florists I looked at had a minimum requirement of $3000 and my husband and I were not prepared to spend that as a minimum on flowers. Shelly could have easily turned us away when we presented her with an embarrassingly low budget, but she did not! She presented us a proposal that fit in our budget, but after talking to her we decided to increase our floral budget since we truly loved her work. I am so glad we did, and if I could do it again I probably would've spent a little more just because her work is so beautiful and when else do you have the opportunity to buy so many flower arrangements? If I ever have any sort of event again, I will definitely book Shelly to handle the florals. Flower arranging is a true art and she has an amazing eye for creating floral masterpieces. Thank you Shelly for making our wedding beautiful!Sent on 02/11/2017

My husband and I got married at the Park Hyatt in Washington, DC this past November and Shelly played a HUGE role in making our wedding such a beautiful and memorable event. Shelly was an absolute pleasure to work with, and truly went above and beyond during our planning calls and meetings, even bringing samples of flowers to help give me a better idea of what I might like. I was so floored when I stepped into the ballroom for the first time on our wedding day because I was so amazed at how accurately Shelly was able to interpret my vision (it's like she read my mind, I swear). If I have any floral needs in the future I will absolutely be hiring Shelly again and would recommend her to all my closest friends and relatives. She is beyond sweet and accommodating, and is truly a rare talent!Sent on 01/24/2017

Shelly and B Floral are amazing. I wish there were more words and stars to give them.Sent on 11/09/2016
a. aesthetic: I knew the color I wanted and the "vibe" but beyond that I was a novice. Shelly took ideas and somehow transformed them into pure magic.
b. value: the creativeness of the design and freshness of flowers was unbeatable. she helped me to stay in my budget w/o making me feel like i compromised anything. there is nothing else i would have wanted.
c. easy to work with: provided me with a detailed list in the contract of what would be provided and allowed me to update as necessary. shelly was gracious enough to make a table arrangement demo so i could better visualize it all.
d. generous: when i walked into the venue i felt spoiled by all of it. i honestly feel that shelly and her team went above and beyond my expectations

Wow! I cannot say enough positive things about B Floral and Shelly! From our first meeting by my office to the day of our wedding, B Floral was responsive, professional and incredibly creative. B Floral made our vision a stunning reality and have heard only glowing remarks from our guests about how gorgeous our chuppah and centerpieces were at the wedding.Sent on 11/01/2016
I cannot recommend B Floral enough!

Shelly was such a gem to work with! From the beginning I had a difficult time articulating the pale shade of orange that we wanted for our wedding, but Shelly nailed it. Before our initial meeting she asked for a link to my "Pinterest" account so when we met she already had an idea of what type of florals I was drawn to. From there, Shelly was so gracious as she would adapt when we added groomsmen, or tables, or anything else leading up to the wedding. She delivered the flowers and bouquets right on time the day of our wedding and they were stunning. Everything was even better than the sample arrangements she had shown me weeks prior. I am so glad we were able to work with B Floral - they listened to what we wanted, and went above and beyond in making it happen. We could not have been happier with everything!Sent on 10/19/2016
