Would 100% Recommend!
Bella Flora was fantastic to work with for our wedding! Kelly was super responsive, consultative, and collaborative throughout the planning process. We were able to meet with her several times before the big day, and I never once doubted that her and her team would be able to make our venue look beautiful. I would 100% recommend Bella Flora for event design and floral needs.Sent on 11/05/2020

Kelly is the best!
My husband and I recently had our wedding at Glen Oaks in WDM on 8.29.20 and I can’t say enough good things about Kelly and her team. She worked with us wonderfully even with the difficulties of covid and me changing my mind on theme 2.5 weeks before the wedding. I could not have asked for a more beautiful turnout! Kelly did a fantastic job capturing my style and vision (even when I had a hard time describing it myself). It was truly PERFECT!!! I had an overall idea of what the designs might look like but I was blown away by how fabulous Bella Flora did. Kelly is very organized and good with details which I LOVED being that I’m a detail-oriented person. My ceremony & reception decor were more beautiful than I could have ever dreamed. Thank you Kelly, you are the absolute BEST!!! I will cherish these photos and the beautiful arrangements you did for years to come. I am so thankful we had you to help us make our day one we will never forget.Sent on 09/07/2020

I cannot recommend Bella Flora enough!! I got so many compliments on the decor and flowers at my wedding, and Kelly gave me exactly what I asked for! I had trouble articulating exactly what I envisioned for my big day, but Kelly and her team took all my photos and suggestions and DELIVERED! My wedding was an absolute dream and I have Bella Flora to thank for that!! LOVE!Sent on 10/25/2019

The Very Best!
Where to start… Kelly and her team do not disappoint. Bella Flora Event Design is extremely good at what they do. I had a vision of what I wanted my wedding to look like. Kelly and her team worked with me to create just that. To this day, we still have people from our wedding telling us how beautiful all of the décor and flowers were. If you are considering Bella Flora as your vendor, look no further… you will be absolutely amazed. They are wonderful!Sent on 09/30/2019

Amazing Vendor Experience
The team at Bella Flora is second to none! Not only did they make my wedding BEAUTIFUL, but their professional team is fun and easy to work with. They are both creative and have attention to quality and detail. I knew I was in good hands working with them. It was comforting to know that I could trust them with such an important detail of my big deal. I have no hesitation to recommend Kelly and her team to any bride!Sent on 09/11/2019

Beautiful flowers, good price, and a dedicated owner!
Kelly is an absolute wedding angel! I am SO happy we chose to work with her. She knows exactly what she’s doing and what your event needs. She has a knack for knowing what looks good and how things will flow. She was open to listening to my ideas and helped tweak them to make them look good. She worked within our budget and made it very reasonable! There were no tricks or hidden costs. Her floral arrangements were beautiful! Her warehouse has endless amounts of declarations which are great to visualize and see how Table arrangements can look. We loved working with Kelly and are so happy with how everything turned out! I am still waiting on my professional photos to come back but had to share a few personal photos I grabbed!Sent on 11/23/2018

I cannot say enough good things about Kelly and the entire staff at Bella Flora! Going into the planning process for my wedding, I had some ideas in my head of what I wanted, a couple inspiration photos and a color scheme in mind. Kelly and her team created a look for my day that was even better than what I could have imagined! They were so easy to work with and were great at keeping us within our budget. I would absolutely recommend that any bride to be trusts Bella Flora with their floral and decor, you will be blown away!Sent on 10/09/2018

Every expectation I had for my daughters wedding were completely blown out of the water.Sent on 08/09/2018
The floral centerpieces at the reception and the church were more than I could have ever hoped for. The bridal flowers were beautiful. The staff did a perfect job of making this day perfect. From our first meeting to the conclusion of the night, perfection!

Tip to Bella Flora brides, look up ways to preserve your bouquet before your wedding day comes. I only let them hang dry and wishing I would have preserved them with silica to keep their beauty. Needless to say, what Kelly & Emily created was beyond beautiful for our day.
I chose the Bella Flora team because my creativity is very limited and during our initial call on vision, Kelly asked questions I would have never thought of and taught me to quit saying "purple" for the beautiful deep plum color or else I was really going to end up with a hot purple decor. I wasn't the easiest client, my favorite flower is a bright orange tiger lily, which is difficult to make work for an April Des Moines wedding. I was planning from a distance and the team was really accommodating to meet when I was in town and prep me as much as possible over the phone. Being able to see my bouquet the Friday before the wedding really kick-started the excitement for the next day, I knew it would turn out perfectly.
I love bright colors but am very minimalist so I needed floral to steal the show being our only decor at the wedding. I didn't give the team a huge budget but over everything else, we received the most compliments on the flowers. The floral centerpieces stole the room and color pop was perfect for accenting the wedding party. Bella Flora was a key part of our amazing team that made our wedding beautiful and I will be forever grateful.Sent on 07/18/2018

From start to finish, Bella Flora was fabulous to work with. I gave Kelly a rough idea of what I wanted for decorations and flowers and she made it look beautiful and elegant. I’d highly recommend working with her team.Sent on 02/05/2018

I could not be happier with the service we received from Bella. The flowers were absolutely gorgeous, we got compliments on them all night. They were great at taking inspiration pictures and matching them to our needs. They were super responsive to any questions. We had a pretty healthy decor budget, but I feel like we got a great deal. I mentioned what we wanted, and what we wanted to spend, and they were able to do everything we wanted beautifully within our budget.Sent on 10/30/2017

With my son and now daughter-in-law living out of state, as well as her family, I was asked to coordinate the floral and decor for their wedding in Des Moines. I cannot compliment Kelly and her team enough! During our consult meeting, our bride was able to FaceTime, to share her vision. Kelly and I then collaborated to come up with a plan, while staying within my budget. Kelly was very professional, flexible with changes and attentive to what we wanted through the whole planning process! She and her team had terrific ideas to get the most impact for my money. The results were stunning! From the bridal party's flowers, boutonnières/corsages and ceremony bouquets, to the reception's tablescapes and ceiling decor-gorgeous! The attention to detail was perfect! I heard so many compliments about the beauty of the florals and decor. The best thing? My son and his bride were so happy and taken back by the stunning transformation of the venue to help make this their "Best Day Ever"! I would definitely recommend Bella Flora Event Design!Sent on 09/25/2017

Kelly and her team did an absolutely AMAZING job for our wedding! In each consultation/meeting with Kelly and her team she was respectful of our budget and flexible with our requests. Kelly and the team are very knowledgable, and they provided much-needed guidance and support throughout the entire process. Hiring Bella Flora was the best decision we could have made for this aspect of our big day. The arrangements and service both far exceeded our expectations, and we have gotten so many compliments from our guests about the floral arrangements and decor at our ceremony and reception! I would highly recommend Bella Flora for any wedding in the Des Moines area!Sent on 08/09/2017

Kelly and her staff at Bella made my wedding dreams come true. I can't begin to explain how professional they were from the beginning of the planning process to the end. I always felt valued and special due to Kelly's responsiveness even though I know how busy they were because they are the best! I highly recommend Bella to any bride who wants to collaborate with the best for your wedding floral and decor needs! My wedding would not have been near as beautiful without them.Sent on 07/29/2017

If you're looking for an event company in Des Moines look no further. Kelly and her team at Bella Flora took the vision from my (now) wife's random pinterest board and turned it into a masterpiece of a Wedding Reception. They were so accommodating and considerate. From the amazing centerpieces, assistance with finishing off our seating chart, and memorial table, to the special request bouquet. And they did all within our tight budget. We couldn't have asked for better floral designs and will recommend everyone we know to go here first. We can't wait to get our pictures back so we can see what they created again and again.Sent on 05/15/2017

We used Bella Flora for our wedding and reception in May. I'll admit that the floral design was by far the most difficult of all of the vendor appointments because I have a hard time visualizing things. I didn't have to worry about that with Bella Flora. They made everything a breeze. They were great about asking questions to see what we wanted. We ended up giving them a color palette and general idea of design, shapes, etc. that we like. Then we let them run with it, and I'm so, so glad we did. The floral arrangements and event design they came up with was better than anything I could have ever imagined. I'm a little biased but it was by far the prettiest wedding I've ever been to. The decor was stunning and unique. My bouquet was the most beautiful arrangement I've ever seen and completely exceeded my expectations. Months after the wedding we're still getting comments from people about how beautiful of a wedding it was. There's no way we could have done it without Bella Flora's amazing vision and craftsmanship. Everyone on the team was so great to work with as well. I have nothing but good things to say about this company. If you want your dream wedding, don't look any further.Sent on 10/06/2017

I don't know how they do it! We only had two meetings before we saw a table setting and they nailed my vision. Kelly and her team worked diligently to make our wedding even more beautiful than we could have imagined. They answered any questions promptly given their busy schedule and honestly. If I were to do it again, I would choose Bella Flora again and again! Thank you so much, Kelly and the whole team!Sent on 07/19/2017

We were so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with Bella Flora. Kelly and her team were extremely professional and provided quality customer service.

Bella Floral did a fantastic job for our wedding. It was everything we dreamed of and more. The designers were creative and easy to work with through the whole process. It was completely stress free from start to finish. My daughter had a vision and through a couple of meetings and the use of pinterest they absolutely nailed it!Sent on 12/05/2016
Kelly and Lisa were so easy going and also very excited about our "look". It was a fun and happy experience for both mother and daughter.

Kelly and Bella Flora are life savers and truly the BEST floral/rental company for weddings and special events. I went to Bella less than 2 months prior to my wedding seeking a new wedding vendor because my other one fell through. Kelly was so accommodating and took on my wedding without hesitation. She listened, took detailed notes, showed me many options within my budget, and took everything I had envisioned and made it a reality. I had two consultations, and I changed a color midway through planning process and she was flexible with incorporating my new color throughout the decorations. The color combination (black, ivory, gold, champagne, and white) with mercury glass centerpieces was stunning!!! My wedding bouquet looked exactly like the picture I showed her but it was even better in person. My ceremony arrangements were HUGE and the most beautiful flower arrangements I have ever seen at a wedding. They were whimsical, enchanting, and just overall incredible! Bella was on-time, had many assistants to set up for the event, and were done decorating well beforehand so I could walk through and enjoy everything before the wedding started. I would hands-down, without hesitation, use Bella again for any special occasion, and I'm already planning when I can have another party and use their services!Sent on 07/21/2016

They did such an amazing job and we can't thank them enough.
From my bouquet to the flowers on the tables, EVERYTHING WAS INCREDIBLE and they worked within our budget.
They are simply the best, easy to work with and the most creative.

I am having trouble putting my review in words because everything about Bella Flora was amazing. From our initial consult to post-wedding followup, I could not have asked for better customer service, value, and product. Kelly and her team took my vision and made it a reality, all while staying within my budget and being very attentive to my wants. I received (and continue to receive!) compliments about the quality of our decor and flowers, and the simplicity and elegance. If I could give them more stars, i would!Sent on 07/21/2016
