LOVE Bells and Whistles!!!
Dorothy and her team were incredible, and truly brought my vision of our wedding to life! Dorothy met with me several times prior to the wedding, and was always available when I needed to call to discuss our flowers and decor. I could not recommend Bells and Whistles for an Outer Banks wedding more!Sent on 09/20/2019

Elopement in the beach
I needed to order flowers for me and my fiancée’s planned elopement on the beach. I found Dorothy of Bells and Whistles florists online and corresponded with Dorothy via email about our special day. I described my favorite flowers to her and she was able to create that into a beautiful bouquet, arch and corsages. I received many compliments on the bouquet and the flower arch was amazing! The flowers added beautiful color and decor to the best day ever!Sent on 07/24/2019

Beautiful summer flowers
Me and my fiancee decided to elope. In two week planning time period I was able to find a local florist for our beach elopement. Dorothy of Bells and Whistles florists was prompt at replying to my inquiry. I described my favorite flowers and style to Dorothy via email and she was able to transform that into a gorgeous bouquet, flower arch, corsage and bouts. The flowers were bright colorful and just what I was envisioning. It added so much spark to my special day!Sent on 07/26/2019

Dorothy did an amazing job with my bouquet. She included everything that I wanted. As much as I loved my bouquet, I cannot express how breathtakingly beautiful the bridesmaids bouquets were. Thank you Dorothy for all of your advice and your quick communication!Sent on 06/17/2019
Bells & Whistles at the Flower Field's reply:So glad we made such a positive impact on your day! We love what we do and are so thankful to have clients like you! Congratulations!!!!

Dorothy turned our venue into the most beautiful space for our reception. I cannot express how much her creativity and vision made our wedding dreams come true. Not only did she decorate our venue but she put together the bouquets and corsages for the entire bridal party. They were beautiful! I personally do not have that type of creative touch and it was so relieving to have Dorothy take care of it all for me. I would highly recommend Bells & Whistles for your flowers and decor.Sent on 06/28/2019
Bells & Whistles at the Flower Field's reply:Loved working with you! I’m so happy you are so happy! Hope you both have a wonderful summer! Let us know when your back in town!!!

OUTSTANDING Experience with Bells & Whistles
I researched florists in the Outer Banks, as I am not local, and Dorothy with Bells & Whistles at the Flower Field blew all of my expectations out of the water. She grows a lot (if not all) of her flowers on her property and her arrangements are outstanding. My husband and I got married at the Sanderling Resort and used their Pavilion for our reception. Not only did Dorothy and her husband deliver outstanding floral arrangements, they completely transformed the Pavilion at the Sanderling by hanging lights and drapery throughout. I cannot say enough how happy we were with our decision to use Dorothy! I would HIGHLY recommend her for your wedding or event!Sent on 08/09/2019

Everything was breathtaking!
Dorothy was absolutely amazing to work with. I had multiple florists in contact with me and had heard a lot of things about Dorothy. I’m not a big flower person, but I knew if I had them, I wanted it to be beautiful! When I walked into the reception & ceremony area, I got goosebumps! Everything was beautiful and even better than I could have imagined. I gave her ideas & boy did I change my mind a million times, but she worked with me and was so kind throughout my indecisiveness. From the draping, arbor floral arrangement, and centerpieces all the way to the BEAUTIFUL wreath hanging over the dance floor with fairy lights, it was all breath taking. I remember gazing at the wreath when I finally got a chance to breath & was in awe! Flowers big or small, I would recommend Dorothy any day!Sent on 05/13/2019
Bells & Whistles at the Flower Field's reply:Awe! Thank you so much for your kind words! I loved all your enthusiasm, how planned and prepared you were. It was such a pleasure helping you make your vision come to life!

Everything was stunning!
Dorothy and her team did an incredible job with the design and decor for our wedding! We were planning from across the country, so it was tough to do, but they really brought our vision to life. We had so many compliments throughout the day and she turned a simple beach house into a perfect wedding setting. The bouquets were incredible and our palm leaf arch held up so well on such a windy day. Thanks so much Dorothy!Sent on 04/28/2019
Bells & Whistles at the Flower Field's reply:Rachel it was such a pleasure working with you! There was so much heartfelt love and emotion surrounding your wedding day it was truly an honor to be part of it. Congratulations to you both! Here’s to a long and happy life!!!

Dorothy was absolutely a joy to work with. She was very professional, charming, patient and cared about what we had for our vision of florals! Dorothy is very creative and has that natural gift and passion for what she loves to do and it shows in her work! Our florals for the wedding were just gorgeous! The colors and various types of florals were perfect for a December wedding in the OBX and tied in with our theme! Thank you so much Dorothy and we would definitely call on you again if the occasion arises!Sent on 01/04/2019

Our dream wedding came to life!
We gave Dorthy an idea of how we wanted our wedding to look like and our dreams came more than true. She decorated everything from our rehearsal dinner to our bouquets, lighting, cake and table settings. Our dream “winter” wedding came true because of her. Thank you!Sent on 01/04/2019
Bells & Whistles at the Flower Field's reply:Loved being part of your day! It was our pleasure. Can't wait to see all the photos, we are dying over here!!!

Dorothy was so flexible and easy to talk to!
We trusted Dorothy completely. She had beautiful examples of her work and made sure we were satisfied with her suggestions as well as with our own vision. She made a beautiful bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, mother corsages, father boutonnières, groom and groomsmen boutonnières, flowers for the cake, lights strung across the ceiling, decorative frames on the wall. The venue was gorgeous! She is so flexible and super easy to work with. We’re so happy we chose Bells and Whistles - we can’t imagine anyone else doing such a beautiful job.Sent on 01/05/2019

Gorgeous and Whimsical
Dorothy was such a joy to work with. She really knows her stuff and was also very open to hearing our ideas too. She put together the most perfect vision to represent our dreamy, romantic aquarium wedding. Thank you!Sent on 11/14/2018

Dorothy was so great to work with for our 9/22/2018 wedding! Originally my mom and I had met with Dorothy in December 2017 with a general idea of what we wanted. Dorothy was extremely professional throughout the year whenever we would speak and I am so impressed with her decorative eye!!! Dorothy ran with our loose plans and colors and everything just came to life so beautifully during our wedding. The bouquets were absolutely stunning!!!! Dorothy also decorated our reception venue and it was perfect.Sent on 10/14/2018
Bells & Whistles at the Flower Field's reply:Oh Emily! Thank you for choosing us to be part of your wedding day! It was so you and gorgeous! Just the right amount of every detail. Heres to Joy and Happiness in all the years to come!

Dorothy was so wonderful to work with! I was so happy with how everything turned out. When I first talked to her, I didn't have a clear vision of my wedding, but she helped guide me and made such good recommendations. The flower arrangements were breathtaking and the table arrangements were beyond anything I could have dreamed. I would definitely recommend Bells and Whistles!Sent on 07/27/2018

We had a very good experience working with Bells and Whistles. Our center pieces and urns for the church/reception were beautiful. I was able to add charms that I had made to my bouquet which was a nice touch. The flowers and presentation certainly added a great deal to our wedding!Sent on 06/05/2018

Dorothy was phenomenal!!!! I had talked to a few different florists that just didn’t really do it for me…. until I connected with Dorothy. I was a bride that didn’t really have a vision (there was no secret Pinterest Board for this girl) and she was so kind and patient with me. She talked me through every step of the process – provided recommendations based on my venue - provided visuals when I couldn’t quite grasp what her vision was - reworked my quote when I changed my mind for the 10th time – all with genuine passion and enthusiasm. I especially knew I had picked the “one” when we drove down to OBX from Boston in January for our pre-planning visits with our vendors. It had been snowing in OBX and the temperatures were unseasonably low - the roads were completely covered in inches of ice. For a Boston girl like myself, this was nothing, but I knew that in a place like OBX – the island probably shut-down in these conditions. Dorothy knew that this was our only opportunity to meet, as we would not be back down before the wedding and braved the elements to keep the existing appointment we had made. It sounds so silly, but this really meant so much to us, as we really wanted to connect personally with our vendors before our wedding in May. She was just as lovely, talented and creative in person as she was over the phone. Our florals came out better than I could have ever imagined. Dorothy (and team) listened to what I envisioned and executed it flawlessly (for someone who had no vision – I was very particular in what I wanted). The flowers were beautiful and so fresh. Our bouquets were GORGEOUS. I cannot tell you how many people complimented them. We had two very young flower girls and she made the most adorable flower crowns and wands for them to use – they loved it. The venue couldn’t have looked better – she completely transformed the space and gave it that romantic feel we so desperately wanted. We cannot say enough great things about the Bells & Whistles team.Sent on 06/19/2018

Dorothy was amazing. She was soo patient and helpful. Up until the wedding day, she was still helping us in any way she could! No surprise why she was referred to us by so many people, as I will of course refer her to anyone and everyone!Sent on 06/06/2018

Dorothy did a beautiful job with our wedding flowers! Admittedly, I had very little "vision" in the floral department. I just knew I wanted something beautiful that wouldn't break the bank. Dorothy took my lack of ideas and ran with it, coming up with a bouquet that received countless compliments on the big day! She did boutineers for all the guys, and the corsages for the mothers and grandmothers were SO elegant. The centerpieces were magazine-worthy and my hairpiece - the only thing that I was very specific on - turned out perfectly!! They were responsive during the planning process and were prompt with delivery the day of! I was so pleased with everything they did for us and cannot thank them enough! :)Sent on 07/16/2018

Dorothy made my dreams a reality! My event was gorgeous because of her and her team. Not only did she do everything we had spoken about, but she went above and beyond. The ceremony on the beach was picture perfect and the dining tables were out of my dreams. After the ceremony, she repurposed my rentals so that I could use them all night long - it made such a difference to have the glow of lanterns all around. I could not be happier with the outcome!Sent on 05/30/2018
Shari · Married on 04/07/2018
Dorothy was awesome to work with. The flowers looked better than I imagined. The week before my event, Dorothy called to check on me and asked if I needed anything more. Every detail was handled expertly. I would recommend her for your event.Sent on 04/15/2018

Dorothy was incredible to work with from start to finish. We were married March 24, 2018 at the Kitty Hawk Pier, and worked with Bells & Whistles since summer of 2017. Though we planned our wedding long-distance and never got to meet Dorothy until the day of, she took a great deal of time speaking with us both on conference calls, to really get a “feel” for who we are and what our style is. She pulled up my Pinterest account to better acquaint herself with what we liked, when I was unable to articulate verbally exactly what we were looking for. A last-minute purchase of statement earrings changed my vision on the flower crown, and I gave Dorothy full liberty to decide on the final product for me. I cried when I saw my crown and the bouquet, it was perfect! Also, she was great at working with us to stay within our budget and working to ensure we had the most important elements for our venue décor. Dorothy was so detail oriented, when we decided last-minute to add Duck donuts in addition to our cake, she offered platters and even offered to call Duck Donuts to find out what assortment they were making for us so she could make signs so our guests knew what donuts we offered. (I did not have time the day before the wedding!). We would highly recommend Dorothy for her professionalism, quality of products (flowers, ribbon, plants and greenery, china, platters, décor, vases, candles, etc.). If you are fortunate to see her shop, you will see all of the lovely items she has to offer, and I’m sure we didn’t even scratch the surface. Thank you Dorothy!Sent on 04/23/2018
