I loved the arrangements we received from Swannanoa Flower Shop! They were super friendly, reasonable, easy to work with, and able to capture what I wanted from a photo I sent them. The flowers and greens were vibrant, fresh, and fragrant from the bouquets, to the corsages, to the greenery on the tables. They also created a few small sprays to put on the cake I had made, and they added just the right touch. Highly recommend this flower shop!Sent on 03/01/2019

Can’t Thank You Enough!!!
Terry was a joy to work with! I had been working with a different florist and they were terrible at communicating with me. I called Terry 2 weeks before my wedding, desperate! She worked with me and my budget with no hesitation at all. She made it so easy, my stress completely melted away. Our flowers were AMAZING! I can’t even explain how beautiful. My vision and then beyond why I could have ever imagined. They were so beautiful. I am so incredibly grateful to Terry for her graciousness and helpfulness and for her beautiful work!! Thank you!Sent on 11/12/2018
Swannanoa Flower Shop's reply:Thank you so much Monica! You made it easy to work with. I hate to hear of flower shops stressing the bride. It's our responsibility to make your day stress free on the floral front! So happy I could be here for you!

Terry and her team did a beautiful job with our floral arrangements for the wedding! She easily captured my vision for a fall wedding.

The price and quality of the flowers was phenomenal. She let me choose the flowers I wanted even though I had not a single clue about where to start with flowers. She suggested and put together all of the flowers needed for the wedding and stayed well below my budget. She was also very understanding and patient! I would definitely choose her again and again.Sent on 06/29/2017
Swannanoa Flower Shop's reply:Thank you so much for your kind words. It was a pleasure working with you. I wish you all the best in your new life!

Cheri · Married on 11/23/2013
Swannanoa Flower Shop did 2 of my children's weddings and I can't say enough how Terry puts love and kindness in every arrangement, bouquet. Her creativity is amazing if you can dream it she will do all in her power to make it happen. The last wedding she did for me in November the bouquets traveled 10 hours to Florida and looked beautiful.Sent on 03/23/2014
Swannanoa Flower Shop's reply:Thank you Cheri! It was an honor to do both weddings.
Debbie · Married on 09/21/2013
We used Swannanoa Flower Shop for my daughter's wedding because, after having met with a couple of other florist, we were very impressed by Terry's knowledge and enthusiasm for her work. We told her our budget and she did everything within her power to work within that budget. We went into the whole planning process not sure of exactly what we wanted, but after meeting with her, we had a very clear idea of what would be best for the type of wedding my daughter was having, as well as the colors that would work best. We could not have been happier with the outcome of everything. Not only were we happy with the floral arrangements, but we feel we have found a friend for life. Thank you, Swannanoa Flower Shop, for making Meghan's wedding day everything she dreamed of.Sent on 11/23/2013
Swannanoa Flower Shop's reply:Thank you Debbie, You all have become part of our family! Much love to you and my Meghan!

For every occasion that I have requested flowers, Swannanoa Flower Shop has been able to fill the bill. From calling and describing what is needed or walking in and picking something up, the customer service is A-one! Swannanoa Flower Shop is the ONLY shop I will use or recommend for any occasion!Sent on 01/08/2014
Amber · Married on 09/15/2012
We chose A Floral Affair by Swannanoa Flowers to provide the ceremony and reception flowers for our wedding because we have seen their fantastic arrangements at previous weddings we have attended. I met with Terry early on and told her my visions, they were a little out of the box for sure, but Terry was able to make my requests come to life. A few days before the wedding she called me to tell me that the bows that were attached to the tiny baskets had been crushed! Now what? I told Terry to cut them off and just make use of what was salvageable from the remaining ribbon and that I thought the existing ones were too big and slightly ugly already, Terry sounded so relieved when I stated this because she too agreed, but didn't want to say anything because she thought I had made them, when in fact a family friend had done them months ago! When I peeked out the window the day of my wedding I was so excited to see that her Isle flowers far exceeded my expectations. Thank you so much for being a part of our special day.

I have used Terry for all of our floral needs for more than nine years. She always provides beautiful arrangements and is very prompt and courteous. She is great to work with if you have a budget to deal with. She makes suggestions on what arrangements work best for the event and always delivers in a timely manner. She has a great eye for detail and is fantastic at decorating. I never have to stress over the decorating, as I know Terry will take care of everything. I highly recommend Swannanoa Flower Shop for any floral needs one might have.Sent on 11/21/2017

Brooke · Married on 05/27/2018
We used Terry at Swannanoa Flower Shop for my son's wedding and the flowers were so beautiful. Everyone at the wedding had something to say about the incredible flowers. Terry listened to the bride and caught on to her vision and asked us to trust her. Best decision ever. She understood what we were looking for and shopped her wholesalers for the best prices to make our vision come to life. We even had flowers in the bride's bouquet that we never imagined having.
Too expensive and going out of season, but Terry was able to procure them. Terry helped us find economical ways to keep the cost down, but still maintain the elegant look we were going for. Communication is key and we thank you Terry for stepping up the game and making this wedding a most beautiful event and cherished memory.Sent on 05/30/2018
Swannanoa Flower Shop's reply:Thank you so much for the beautiful, kind words. I do apologize for not responding as quickly as you and I would've liked. Holidays and you know the other reason. was honored to have been your florist, and honored you trusted me to make the arrangements you had in your vision.
Cara · Married on 10/14/2017
Terry has such an amazing eye for beauty. I was so worried our reception wouldn't look like a real wedding (we were going the rustic route) but after speaking with Terry I felt so much better and the flowers made all the decorative difference! She had good ideas for bringing in different flowers to compliment our color scheme and for how to display flowers in our reception space. Our bouquets were stunning. I loved my bouquet so much I had my husband take pictures of me with it the next day. :D She can definitely find you beautiful and unique arrangements!Sent on 11/21/2017
Moni · Married on 09/15/2017
My wedding was September 15, 2017 in Asheville, and Terry did a fabulous job. We were in contact for about 14 months, long distance. She was very accommodating to budget changes and all of my different ideas--and she made my vision a reality! On the day of the wedding, Terry personally delivered my bouquet. Everybody raved about how beautifully arranged and fresh the flowers were. Would definitely recommend to anyone.Sent on 10/03/2017
Swannanoa Flower Shop's reply:Thank you Moni, it was an honor to be your florist.

I just want to say that Swannanoa Flower Shop is a community oriented business. They held a contest about Thanksgiving memories, and it made me think about special memories and brought me a lot of happiness, just thinking about past Thanksgivings. I would say that if you want a personal touch and beautiful flowers, please be sure to use the best, Swannanoa Flower Shop.Sent on 11/25/2015
Swannanoa Flower Shop's reply:Thank you for your review, I'm sorry we didn't rate a 5* with you. We strive to be a 5* florist. If there is anything we can do to make your review a 5* please let us know. I'm happy you won the FREE Thanksgiving Centerpiece. How is FREE not a good value????
JENNY · Married on 10/12/2019
Terry was sweet and helpful from the get go! I knew I'd love her as soon as her cat greeted me upon walking into her shop :) I had no idea what kind of flowers I wanted, and she was great with helping me figure out my best options while working with my limited budget. We had to stretch it a bit to get everything I wanted, but that's completely understandable considering flower prices were more expensive as it was Mother's Day weekend. Terry's prices were much less compared to other vendors in the area! Overall, there were a few snafus (responsiveness and a few wilted flowers/bouts), but it was a great value considering all that we got. My bouquet was my favorite part - it was gorgeous and looked great in pics! Thank you for everything, Terry!Sent on 05/22/2018
Swannanoa Flower Shop's reply:Hi Jenny, thank you for the kind words, I am sorry that you did not receive the responsiveness you needed from us. I am concerned about the wilted flowers, Everything was beautiful when we left them at the hotel and the venue. Emore was so wonderful to work with and this is the first I heard of wilted flowers. The bouts were eucalyptus and baby's breath with billy balls... I am trying to understand how they wilted? But I am thrilled your bouquet was gorgeous. Thank you again.

I didn't have a good experience with them. What we order was not what we received.Sent on 02/12/2013
The flowers didn't look that great. I would not used them again if I would have to do it again.
The florist was nice but I was not satisfy with the end result.
Swannanoa Flower Shop's reply:I had NO weddings on the date in question, so I am reaching out to you a SEVENTH TIME trying to find out who you are, and what was wrong with the order. IF YOU can TRASH me PLEASE have the COURTESY to tell me who you are. I did not have any weddings on the date of this review or the few weeks leading up to it. I can only imagine this is from another florist. Without having a name, order entry number, etc... I have no other way of knowing what it is you are upset with. Please reach out to me and let me make things right with you.
