    Fantastic!

    Merlene was truly a professional and always available to us...day and night. Being a busy professional myself, Merlene took care of everything detail while I constantly traveled for work. Wedding day was beautiful and everything came together exquisitely. I would highly recommend M.E.I. Floral Designers & Event Planners to all.

    Amazing Event Planner

    Merlene is the bomb.com. She helped me plan a surprise vow renewal for my husband. I live in Wisconsin and I was a little skeptical with putting all my trust in someone who lived so far away. But I have to say, Merlene made me feel comfortable. She was very professional and very detailed. She never left me out of the process and always concerned my opinions. To make a long story short, my vow renewal service in Florida was great. If I had to do it all over again, she would be the one person I would pick. Merlene delivers....

    "We do it all!"

    My husband and I selected a destination wedding and had no clue where to start. After countless hours of research, I selected Merlene for decorating and flowers.

    In recalling everything we did together before writing this review, I typed Merlene's name into my email search, there were 23 search results. Of those 23 emails, 3 had over 20 responses each.

    Merlene was THAT dedicated to keeping everything organized and tailored to our personalities. During our first consultation, Merlene explained very clearly what she could and couldn't assist with, and even offered services we hadn't even thought of. Our decorations, centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, arch, pipe and drape and even day-of planning were all taken care of by Merlene.

    When we lost our catering manager a month before the wedding and when we got reassigned a new entertainment consultant, Merlene was there to support us and keep us on track. She also coordinated very well with vendors with strong personalities. Everything happened on time and was flawless, even when the inevitable (rain in Miami) happened and the ceremony setup had to be moved inside 15 minutes before the wedding.

    Merlene helped make our dream wedding happen and we couldn't thank her enough.

    Amazing!!!!

    Wow! Merlene (MEI Floral Designs) truly went above and beyond. MEI came recommended through another friend who also loved their experience from their wedding. They mentioned MEI to me months before, but I forgot to check them out. Then I ended up on Wedding Wire, doing my own search for florist who were not too costly and came highly recommended. I emailed and met with Merlene and fell it love. I felt like she understood my vision and knew ways to make it all work, without breaking the bank. I reached back out to my friends from a few months back, to let them know I decided to go with the same florist they used, and I'm so happy I did! Merlene/MEI Florals is truly the best. I loved my chuppah, ballroom, bouquets, everything!!! She was easy to communicate with and always seemed available.

    If you are looking for a florist that truly wants you to love your day, will work with your budget, and has great ideas to make your vision even better, then immediately message MEI and hire them for your event. You will NOT be disappointed.

    Easy to talk with delivered as promised

    I was impressed with the decorations and the attention to detail. Merlene delivered as promised and even more. I have already recommended her to one my friends. At the church, though simple but elegant, was beautifully decorated and when we arrived at the reception it was transformed into an elegant affair. Thank you once again Merlene. Job well done. You made our daughters day perfect and complete.

    Amazing to work with. I am from Kansas and I flew in to do my wedding and I did not see my flowers until the day of the wedding. I could not have asked for more beautiful flowers, the thing that was most impressive was the response time when I had my questions.

    Merlene was a joy to work with. She was available for a meeting immediately. She was extremely flexible with our budget, design, and creating a package that fit with our needs. When it came time for the centerpiece mock up, it was beautiful and exactly what we wanted. Merlene used her expertise to design and create beautiful centerpieces and a chuppah for our wedding. We highly recommend using MEI for all of your floral needs.

    When I first started planning my wedding, I really didn't intend to hire a wedding planner or even a day of coordinator. But when I met Merlene at my first bridal show and I was so enamored with her that I pretty much said sign me up!! She told me about her own wedding where she was so busy in the details that she didn't get to enjoy her big moment, and because that was a really big fear of mine I decided it was definitely worth it! It was hands down the best decision I made for my wedding day! Merlene is excellent and her level of professionalism made me feel really comfortable knowing everything would be taken care of. The week of the wedding and the morning of she reached out to all my vendors so that I could relax and be stress free! She led the rehearsal the day before and my entire family gave rave reviews because it was fun and humorous and a great way to start the wedding festivities! During the actual wedding, her and her team were pretty much everywhere - making sure guests received their specific orders, coordinating with the kitchen, helping with any snags with my dress, making sure my groom and I were well fed etc. She took care of everyone and I felt incredibly relaxed knowing that her detailed eye would not miss anything! I highly recommend Merlene to anyone considering a wedding planner or day of coordinator!!

    Merlene was a wonderful florist who helped me out a great deal! Since I was on the other side of the world when planning my wedding and only arrived the day before, it was a great relief to know the flowers in such capable hands.
    Merlene spoke to me on the phone several times and even provided helpful tips for the pictures and the size of my flower headband.
    Hopefully I won't have to get married again, but I would choose Merlene again any time!!

I couldn't of asked for anyone else. When I thought it was impossible she made it possible. I can keep going on and on. When I saw what she did for me I broke down. Beautiful job. Thank you Merlene.

    I cannot imagine going through the wedding process without Merlene. She was not only our wedding coordinator and floral designer, she was our advocate, sympathetic ear, and a friend during the entire process.

    Her years of experience in this industry is a huge asset. We had a couple of issues with our venue and it's because of Merlene's expert knowledge and experience in the wedding industry that allowed her to swiftly resolve those issues to our liking. On the day of, I was a relaxed bride and was confident that everything would go smoothly, and it did. She ensured we started on time and stuck with the timeline.

    Not only is she a skilled wedding planner, she is a talented floral designer. I showed her pictures of my inspiration and had faith that she would deliver. And boy did she deliver! I don't think I've seen arrangements more beautiful than the ones she created for us (and I promise it's not because it was my wedding day.) Our guests all commented on the beauty and uniqueness of our floral arrangements.

    I was truly blown away by the service we received, her professionalism, and her passion for helping couples plan their dream wedding.

    For someone who had a small budget and a grand vision of what I wanted (so much so that a lot of vendors wouldn't even bother with a quote), I was very pleased with how my flowers turned out. Let me say first off, that as I planned my entire wedding, there was not a single person who was more responsive, understanding, and accommodating than Merlene. I had to have emailed her 100 times, going back and forth trying to figure out what flowers I wanted, asking her to identify pictures of flowers, picking out different greenery, switching this and that and just changing my mind a million times. I was a mess when it came to flower planning and Merlene, never, not once, made me feel like an annoyance (even when I was annoying with myself!). Her personality is just amazing and she is the sweetest person ever. There were a couple issues with getting the exact color shades of the flowers that I had picked the day before the wedding, and she communicated with me immediately and we worked around the problem successfully. I so highly recommend her!

    Merlene was absolutely wonderful! She was on top of everything and really worked with me leading up to the wedding to ensure the flowers were exactly what I wanted. She really went above and beyond. I highly recommend her if you're getting married in the Miami area! Thanks, Merlene!!
