    Joan was absolutely amazing! She is so incredibly helpful and talented. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted, so I gave her a general idea and she created something beautiful! I also really appreciated that she didn't try to push me to buy more expensive arrangements. She appreciated my budget and really listened to me. She is very personable and friendly.

    Joan with Prange's Florist was simply wonderful! We hired her for our November wedding, and she delivered more than we could ever expect or hope for. I came to Joan within weeks of our wedding and it was such a relief that she understood exactly what I wanted, despite my limited 'technical' knowledge of flowers. She is able to so quickly and effortlessly create a total package that fits any style and price range for the experience you wish to have. She was professional and accommodating - we couldn't have been more pleased with our overall experience. Joan even created a last-minute corsage we had forgotten the morning of our wedding at no charge. If you are looking for a reliable and affordable florist with lots of knowledge and experience, the best choice in the Gainesville area is Prange's Florist, simply put. I would highly recommend them for any of your floral needs. Thank you Joan for helping to make our wedding day so beautiful, and a day that we will always remember!

    When I went in to Prange’s Florist, I really didn’t know exactly what I wanted for my bouquet and my fiancé’s boutonniere. We had a Gator wedding, so our colors were orange and blue. I thought I wanted orange gerbera daisies and some type of lily I saw online. When I met with Joan, she was able to come up with the perfect bouquet by offering her extensive knowledge and experience. She suggested I add blue hydrangeas (which gave the blue without being too much) and knew the perfect flowers to use that would stand up to the day and to my fiancé. She was easy to work with and the prices were extremely reasonable considering the quality of the product. The arrangements she created were more beautiful than we could have hoped for and they looked amazing in the photos, too.

    I used Joan Prange as my florist and was VERY pleased with her work. She is a flower expert and is also familiar with all the venues in town, and was able to offer some guidance on certain aspects for me. I am not very knowledgeable about flowers but I did have an idea of what I was looking for. The pictures that I brought as inspiration were actually very expensive. Joan recreated those bouquets with similar, less-expensive flowers and I liked them even more than the pictures! When I first saw my bouquet, I couldn't believe how beautiful and perfect it was. She also did fresh flowers on our wedding cake and it looked gorgeous. My bouquet and our cake are two of my favorite elements from our wedding day. Thanks Prange's Florist!

    WOW! She and her crew did the most amazing job. They went above and beyond to create more than I could have ever wanted. It was the most amazing job. They put together a stunning set of table tops for 60 tables and an arch that would blow you away. They created large/tall arrangements for the ceremony and reception. If you want the wow factor for a great price you would be crazy not to go with Prang's!

    Prange's florist is the greatest! Joan is so kind and motherly, during our flower consultation we spent hours not only talking about floral arrangements, but about the wedding and even life beyond the wedding. She was very easy to work with and when it turned out that our centerpiece containers were larger than she thought they would be (due to my lack of communication) she changed the flowers a little bit in such a way that it didn't cost us any more than she had originally quoted and they were still beautiful. I would definitely work with Joan and Prange's florist again.

    Joan worked with my daughter and myself to bring my daughter\'s vision of what she wanted to reality. She was so sweet, and cooperative, and everything was perfect. The bride from the wedding at Sweetwater Branch Inn the night before my daughter\'s wedding had used the Colonade setting for her wedding, which was where my daughter\'s ceremony was to take place. There were elaborate flowers and vines on the columns and the area at the top, and the other bride had told Joan that we could use it if we wanted to (Joan did both weddings), and remarkably the colors were similar. She called and asked if we would like that, and when we said yes, she offered, at no charge, to tint the white roses the orange shade of my daughter\'s colors. The centerpieces were exactly what we wanted, and the bride\'s bouquet was breathtaking! She is an artist!

    We used Prange's for our wedding flowers and were so so pleased with Joan's services. She was really good at communicating with us, our venues. I'm not a big flower person, I told her all I wanted was yellow roses and small sunflowers. When I met with her, she not only was able to do EVERYTHING I wanted, but she gave me tons of advice on flowers, prices. So helpful. She went above and beyond what I pictured for flower, all the flowers came out gorgeous!!! You can really tell when you talk to her that she absolutely wants your wedding to be exactly how you envision it. She cares about her work, loves doing it, and loves making your day just so. When I came up with some last minute ideas for the ceremony and my girls flowers she did it and took care of it. We received TONS of compliments on the centerpieces, the bouquets, the boutonnieres - everything! I HIGHLY recommend Prange's for any of your flower needs!!!!! I think she's the best in Town!!!

    We were so happy with the beautiful flowers that Ms. Prange did for our wedding. We went in with pictures and ideas and she was able to design arrangements that fit into our budget. The quality of the work was amazing. The flowers were lush and it was exactly what we had wanted. She was very helpful in giving ideas on how to save and multi-task with the flowers. We had my bouquet and my husbands boutonniere preserved because we loved them so much. Everyone commented on how beautiful all the flowers were. I would definitely recommend this business :)

    Joan Prange is a flower genius! She absolutely made my wedding! The flowers were just want I wanted and more! They were gorgeous and lasted for a long time after.
    I was always skeptical of florists because of the cost and other venues where you can buy flowers - but what Joan did was absolutely unbelievable and worth every penny and more. The vibrant colors and different types of flowers she used was extraordinary. Thanks so much Joan!!

    We used Prange's for our wedding flowers this past fall, and were so so pleased with Joan's services. She was really good at communicating with us, our venues, and our wedding planner. When I met with her, she not only was able to do EVERYTHING I wanted (and believe me, I brought in a lot of pictures), but she gave me tons of advice on flowers, prices, and even non-flower related wedding topics. So helpful. One picture I brought in was of this beautiful bouquet I saw online and she was able to recreate it with flowers that were in season and it turned out even more gorgeous than I had hoped. You can really tell when you talk to her that she absolutely wants your wedding to be exactly how you envision it. She cares about her work, loves doing it, and loves making your day just so. When I came up with some last minute ideas for the ceremony, she even gave me a couple example flowers to test out at the ceremony site to see how they looked. We received TONS of compliments on the centerpieces, the bouquets, the boutonnieres - everything! I HIGHLY recommend Prange's for any of your flower needs. You won't be disappointed!

    I chose Joan at Prange's Florist because I felt she understood my vision and listened to what I was looking for more than other florists I met with. When I used pictures to show what I considered a general idea of what I was looking for, she did take more of a literal approach to the image than I imagined. With that said, I got exactly what I was looking for. Joan used creative ideas along with the images I presented her and her expertise to create arrangements better than I could have imagined. I appreciated that she advised me on when and how to use each flower I chose which allowed us to have arrangements which lasted and looked great the entire evening!

    My flowers were beautiful and Joan worked to stay within my budget. I found out after that we had failed to alert her of two tables we had to add for last minute responses which of course changed our number of centerpieces. She quickly problem solved, made additional centerpieces onsite and no one ever knew. You can count of Joan and her team to make your day perfect.

    First off, I have to admit that flowers were not my top priority for my wedding. I had spent some time considering silk flowers for their low cost, but in the end I went with Prange's Florist. I was hesitant to use Prange's at first because I called several times and was told that I would get called back, but it took a couple of weeks before I was able to speak with Joan. Once I did, I was really happy. She had all sorts of tips to give me regarding planning and my vendors. She actually managed to get me under budget, which I never imagined a wedding vendor would want to do, and it was a very pleasant surprise. I'm really glad I went with Prange's because my bouquet was so lovely, romantic, delicate, and sweet, and it photographed so well, too!
