I loved Working with Linda from the time we first met. I explained my vision and she executed exactly what I wished for. My floral arrangements turned out perfectly and I couldn't have been more happy with how beautiful all the flowers looked. They even lasted after a week of my wedding! Millers florist is very reasonably priced and they listen to what you really want to ensure satisfaction. I have recommended them to a few friends and even have one of them booking with them! They had great communication and were helpful in choosing out what I wanted since I don't really know a lot about flowers! we even went to the warehouse to look at the different types of flowers to get an idea of what my bouquets would actually look like. I will keep her in mind for any other event I may need floral arrangements done for! What a great vendor, one of my favorites to work for, you must check them out!Sent on 10/15/2013

I disagree with all the negative reviews, but I know everyone could have a different experience. Mine was great!!! My flowers were just red roses but I wanted them to look elegant, and of course I had a budget. She doesn't over price and she works with you to make sure you get what you want and gives you other options if you're not comfortable with the price. I had flowers at the church which looked amazing, all my bridesmaids bouquets were tagged with their names and looked wonderful, and my bouquet was gorgeous. She also delivered everything to all locations on time and set everything up. Just a minor problem that she said she would provide a throw away bouquet and she forgot, but that wasn't a big deal to me. Also my centerpieces were stunning!!! I had short and tall with square vases and a flower submerged in the water in the tall vases, they looken beautiful!!!! Better than I thought actually!!!! All my guests thought for sure they belonged to the reception site so they didn't want to take them until we told them they could take them home. Also my friend that is engaged and attended my wedding loved my centerpieces and decided to book Linda as well. I would recommend Linda to anyone she is great!!!!!!Sent on 07/30/2009

I enjoyed my experience with Miller's Florist. Linda did an awesome job on the flowers for our wedding ceremony and reception. She was professional and ON TIME for EVERY appointment and the day of the event. They keep their word on what they say they're going to do. Everyone raved about how beautiful the flowers were. GREAT flowers at an excellent price.Sent on 02/12/2008

Great service and a great price. I loved that she could do everything through e-mail. I could send her pictures and she would help me adjust it to fit my needs. She was extremely flexible and nice about making changes. She was also very willing to be my wedding planner for the day.Sent on 02/12/2008

Linda did an excellent job on our wedding flowers. She's very personable, knowledgeable and easy to work with. I was able to give her pictures and talk about what I wanted and she knew the types of flowers from the images. Overall she had no trouble meeting all of our requests, including picking up 20+ odd containers from our home the week of the wedding to do our centerpieces. Also, the total bill was much, much less than competitive florists were asking.Sent on 01/14/2015

Millers Florist was one of my favorite wedding vendors, so when I saw a few bad reviews on here, I knew I needed to give my opinion.Sent on 05/16/2012
I was happy with Linda. She stuck exactly to the prices in our contract. I ended up having less tables and she didn’t make me pay for the floral arrangements I didn’t need. My bouquets showed up on time at the hotel before the wedding. When I got to the venue, everything was already set up for the ceremony and looked awesome. I never saw anybody….but it all happened seamlessly. Exactly what I wanted on my wedding day.
My flowers exceeded my expectations. Many people gave me compliments on them. I will admit that I told Linda I did not want much green leaves in them, and the talls ones had quite a bit of green. But she did such a beautiful job with them that I didn't mind at all.
The review about the “burgundy” ribbon made me laugh. Burgundy was one of my wedding colors. We went to the floral mart together before my wedding and she asked if I wanted a burgundy ribbon. I had her take me to the ribbon isle to show me the one labeled “burgundy” and the color was totally not what I wanted. I blame the ribbon company for that.
The other florist that quoted me said my budget didn’t allow for tall arrangements and then quoted over my budget on the short arrangements.For the price, I really think you can’t beat her.
Beth · Married on 08/29/2009
Our flowers looked great - and the price is amazing - we paid about HALF of what we had been quoted with other florists! Linda is really sweet and took my mom and me to the flower wholesale market to see all the options so we could decide exactly what we wanted. She was also willing to come to meet me at my house or at the starbucks nearby - i didn't have to drive anywhere to meet her! Linda is creative and the flowers were perfect!Sent on 09/19/2009

Linda is great to talk to before the wedding. I showed her pictures, she showed me pictures, we got excited about the plans. She told me that she is very involved, even helping set the tables at one wedding. She hates how wedding planners will sometimes sit back and not get things done. She offered to do ceremony decor (draped fabric and columns with the reception centerpieces on them) for free. She took me to the warehouse where she gets the flowers and we looked at lots of options. I got a mini bouquet that was perfect.Sent on 07/22/2009
On the day of the wedding, the bouquets were lovely. Not exactly what I had envisioned, but beautiful. The bouts and coursages came out very well. The flowers at the end of the aisle were perfect. The columns were very pretty, until I looked at pics later and realized that they were frames draped in cloth and some of the cloth was wrinkled, or not folded evenly, so it showed the frames. The tall centerpieces were supposed to be submerged flowers in cylindrical vases, but there was only a small amount of water in them and the flowers didn't seem to fit... The low centerpieces were a huge disappointment. They were supposed to be mango callas with their stems wrapped around the inside of a globe, but the stems were cut off and the heads of the flowers were just laying in a puddle of water at the bottom of the globes.... because the mango were a bit off-color it really looked like dead fish. Also, despite Linda's assurances about how involved she would be, I did not see her there when the room was flipped. The young man who delivered my bouquet seemed to be doing it all himself.
Her price is tough to beat and the majority of the flowers where really beautiful. I'm still getting compliments on my bouquet. Just be aware that the execution didn't completely match the plan.

My flowers turned out absolutely beautiful. I got married in the fall and chose a variety of flowers and colors for my bouquets. Linda did a great job of putting it all together. The bouquets were stunning. The price was also right. I got my bouquet, three bridesmaid bouquets, three corsages, nine boutonnieres, 10 pew adornments, and 10 centerpieces for just under $1000.Sent on 01/14/2011
For a friend's wedding in the middle of July, her white flowers were wilting and browning at the edges. I don't know if that's a florist problem, but be careful about what flowers you choose!
It can be difficult to get in contact with Linda, so if you are the type of person who will need to communicate a lot with the florist, you may want to look elsewhere.
Laurel · Married on 02/18/2007
Had a plethora of options, very informative and helps you decide what would look best together. I had good experiences with her up until the wedding...then saw the flowers on the big day. My bouquet (and my bridesmaids') had so many burnt edges on the flowers. It wasn't terribly noticeable, but when everything was perfect except the flowers, it really stands out. Overall, go with them. Great value and great service. Flower quality is okay.Sent on 05/31/2008
Cara · Married on 10/10/2009
I specifically asked for burgundy and light pink flowers that were all the same size and she gave me bouquets of red and pink flowers of many different sizes. I asked for no greenery in the centerpieces and there were big green leaves. The cost was good and I guess it all looked fine, but it was just troublesome that she did not do what we asked.Sent on 10/14/2009
Amy · Married on 09/04/2005
I would avoid this florist. She initially looked good...she was willing to do whatever I asked and the price was low. I checked and got several good references. I gave her clear pictures and instructions on what I wanted. The day of my wedding I found she had dropped off everything very early and left without setting almost anything up. The centerpieces were ok but not quite as big as I had asked for plus she made substitutions without asking. They required some work to put together which she had not done (there multiple glass containers with fish and flowers and water, we supplied the fish). The ceremony flowers were not what I had asked for, the ribbons for the chair pieces were the wrong color and the flowers were wrong, the tulle and archway flowers were also the wrong colors/type. The bouquets looked nice but the lilies had the pollen still in them and would have gotten all over our dresses if my bridesmaids hadn't removed them. They were also supposed to have the names of the bridesmaids on them, that was missing too. My bouquet was missing some of the flowers that I had asked specifically for. We were also completely missing single long stem roses that we were going to present to our mothers, we had to send some people out to the grocery store to pick them up. We were very lucky that our ceremony/reception site had awesome employees who set up most of the flowers for us, they even sprinkled the rose petals down the aisle.Sent on 09/03/2008
We tried to get a hold of her that day and couldn't get a response until late. When she did return our calls, she said that the flowers were different due to a hurricane causing supply problems. That would have been fine if she had told us up front when it happened. She said she'd give us a refund on the roses which never happened.
I guess you get what you pay for...please use my experience to your advantage.

This staff is very unprofessional. After the initial meeting we paid a deposit and signed a contract, that the main florist, Linda and her staff ended up losing. After trying to contact her via email for a week she confused me with another bride and admitted that she lost my paperwork. And the paperwork she gives clients is not typed out and has words that are scratched out and written on top of. Very unprofessional. My final consultation was spent going over everything we previously discussed and she still got it wrong. I was never able to see what my flowers would look like. I wanted a cascading bouquet, that I paid for. The main florist showed me the picture and everything but when the flowers arrived on my wedding day, it was all wrong. My bouquet was not what I wanted. My color was burgundy and she sent my bridesmaids bouquets with purple ribbon. Then wanted to argue with me that the tag on the ribbon said burgundy. A professional florist should use their eyes and know that purple and burgundy are no where in the same color family. My husband and I were very unhappy with their services. The main florist wanted to blame my paperwork being lost on her daughter-in-law that she calls staff, but the responsibility of who keeps up with clients' information, deposits, and contract should not be the clients concern.After speaking with Linda she said she would provide me with the picture of the bouquet I picked to show what it initially looked like, and I never received the picture. I notice that Linda mentions (in the comments below) our initial meeting where I had a migraine headache that sent me to the hospital and she knows all that information. She was called as soon as I left the hospital. Then my fiance' at the time and I took the long trip to meet with her at her house and it make it more accommodating for her since I was rushed to the hospital for the first meeting. For her to mention that I didn't show and not mention that I was in the hospital says a lot about her and her professionalism. I do not recommend Miller's Florist to any bride.Sent on 04/04/2012

My bridal bouquet and my bridemaid's flowers were gorgeous! BUT Linda didn't show up until 3 hours after we got to the venue, so we didn't have any of them for photos. She claims the manager of Chataue Bu Sche said he wouldn't let her in but myself, my husband, the bridal party, the DJ and my grandparents had been there for 3 hours before she waltzed in.Sent on 10/18/2012
should have been a red flag since she DIDN'T show up to our second meeting! She said she had a family emergency and blamed her daughter in law for not calling us.. we drove in total 2 hours to meet her (we live in elgin...) and then waited an hour.
-She called the other bride at the venue a "Bridezilla" to me, and laughed. (yeah I got that one on camera...) Really professional.
centerpieces: a medium glass bowl interwoven with calla lillies and amathyst ribbon, grey stone at the bottom, and orchids floating in water on top of a mirror with two tea lights on corners.
centerpieces: a medium glass bowl with calla lillies and purple ribbon, some brown rocks, and a floating RED tea light. (it looked awful.)
Our Trellis: she said and I quote "It will be FULL of flowers, top to bottom, I hate when people skimp ya'" and laughed. and showed us a picture of what she would do.
We got: three bouquets of flowers, two on each side one top middle, connected with about 8 yards of tooling.
To sum up: She missed our second meeting with out a call, she showed up 3 hours late to to wedding, she didn't deliver what we signed out contract for, and bashed other brides to me.
DO NOT BOOK THIS FLORIST.

Much like some of the previous reviews mentioned, I had high hopes for Miller's Florist and was gravely disappointed.Sent on 09/29/2011
I was impressed with my initial consultation with Linda and thought that I had really lucked out---I was getting exactly what I wanted for under $1000. My requests were pretty straightforward--roses, tulips, stephanotis. I was further impressed when we went to the floral mart and she showed us the various flowers and gave me some other suggestions for the centerpieces such as floral lights and stones. I thought she understood my visions and I even sent her emails with pictures of my centerpieces.
The Weds. before my wedding she emailed me (not called me) if I could have someone transport our church floral arrangements to the reception venue so she could save on gas. My bouquet was dropped off at my house and it was half the size I thought it would be (it was smaller than some bridal bouquets I've had) and it had white pipe cleaners in it.
I arrived at my reception and the centerpieces were completely wrong. Not only had she not altered the sizes of the vases after I asked them to be changed after she had shown me a sample, but they did not contain any of the floral lights or stones that she had suggested.
I emailed Linda with all my concerns after my wedding and I received an email back from her basically telling me that she had done certain things because of reasons or explanations we had never talked about. In response to the pipecleaners in my bouquet (which are visible in my pictures, by the way), she said "all florists use pipecleaners." In response to my comment about my bouquet being quite small she said, "if it was any bigger it would have been unmanageable."
I thought I was very clear about my requests and altered my signed contract to make sure it was clear, and I still do not believe Miller's Florist fulfilled the terms of our contract.
