  • I was lucky enough to hire Bowerbird to be the florist for my sister's last minute wedding that I planned in 2 weeks. I loved their free-flowing style and wanted some bad ass fall flowers for an outdoor forest wedding. It's tough to find a florist who will work with you on such short notice, and even rarer to find one who - I kid you not - knows what you want more than you do. I sent a few pinterest inspiration pictures, had a phone consult (since I'm not local). Then I find out that my sister likes the style I picked, but wants the flowers to be very colorful (I had previously been thinking blush, burgundy, deep purple, etc.). I was super nervous how it would turn out and was SHOCKED when we picked up the flowers. They were EXACTLY what we wanted. Colorful, wild, but beautiful and tasteful. They set off the intimate wedding ceremony to perfection. Plus Diane and Lily were such a pleasure to work with! Cannot recommend them enough!

  • Diane and Lily are truly incredible at what they do! All I gave them was an idea of the vibe of my wedding, and the color palette of my bridesmaid dresses, and they created incredible bouquets and table arrangements to match everything PERFECTLY. I truly cannot speak highly enough of them!! My bridal bouquet was incredible, and they made flower crowns for me and all of my bridesmaids, which were equally incredible. They truly brought all of my flower dreams to life and exceeded every expectation I had. Working with Diane and Lily throughout the entire process was a complete breeze. They were super responsive, always ready with ideas, and as soon a I met them I basically gave them complete control of the colors/kinds of flowers because you can tell they know exactly what they’re doing. They are both so, so kind and I would absolutely work with them again, and I recommend anyone else to do so, too!

  • Dianne and her team at Bowerbird were fantastic and created the most beautiful floral arrangements at my wedding! Dianne was an absolute pleasure to work with and she skillfully created the bouquets of my dreams! Each arrangement was unique and included the most beautiful touches, incorporating our colors and wedding design. We received so many compliments on both the bouquets and the table arrangements. I can't say enough good things about Bowerbirds and would definitely recommend!

  • We hired Bowerbird for our wedding in April and were so happy we made this decision! Finding a wedding day florist is a daunting task at best, but Diane was kind and professional throughout the process. She was willing to work with my budget and still create such beautiful arrangements that photographed so spectacularly. I had trouble deciding if I loved my bouquet or the custom hair comb more!

  • I was rendered speechless by my wedding flowers. When Diane and Lily arrived to deliver my bridal bouquet during hair and makeup, I burst into tears. Diane's vision is truly unique (and I don't use that work lightly), and I could never have planned and designed my wedding without her. Her understand of color and texture is unparalleled in North Carolina. If you hire Bowerbird, I highly recommend that you trust Diane and Lily to get creative with your color palette--they will absolutely not disappoint you. 10/10 HIRE!!!

  • Diane is hands down the best florist we could have ever hired. I found Bowerbird online and knew just from the pictures that we had to hire them! We went to Diane with just an idea and few a pictures of what we liked and she put together the most beautiful floral arrangements I have ever seen - I know nothing about flowers and fully trusted Diane with the design. She immediately understood the style and vibe we wanted - her work is impeccable. She also put together the arbor we got married under and OMG I can't even describe how beautiful it was! Diane is seriously one of the nicest people we have ever met and made our wedding everything we ever imagined - we loved her!!

  • I am obsessed with Bowerbirds Flowers. They were recommended to me by my wedding planner and did not disappoint! Diane is magnificent and talented. I actually know very little about flowers so I couldn't really tell Diane exactly what I wanted. I gave her a picture of my wedding dress, my wedding colors, and a "look" I was going for. She took over from there and created the most amazing bouquets, centerpieces, and decorations. I highly recommend her!

  • Diane is simply INCREDIBLE! Like most brides, I had photos and a vision for what I wanted in flowers for our wedding day. My first meeting with Diane was warm, open and most importantly honest. She was spectacular at setting realistic budget expectations, clear about what was included in the costs, and SUPER knowledgeable about seasonal choices for florals. On my wedding day I was able to get a sneak peak into the ceremony space after Bowerbird had finished the setup - it brought me to straight tears. It was everything I had asked them to do and more - it was perfect. I would recommend Diane to any bride!

  • Diane and her flowers are unbelievable!!! She understood my vision perfectly and I didn't even meet her until a week before my wedding. She was even willing to work with me when I changed my mind at that week before meeting. She was so sweet and understanding about budget as well- I was a bride on a budget and she was able to get me everything that I wanted within it. Definitely go to Bowerbird, you won't be disappointed.

  • Diane is an amazing florist. I wanted to create several pinterest worthy looks at my wedding and she didn't even flinch. Her flowers were the talk of our wedding. I can say not being sure how flowers will turn out definitely creates a lot of anxiety. You will be happy with the decision to work with Diane.

  • Diane and the Bowerbird team provided us with absolutely beautiful arrangements. She was also very accommodating to meet with us when we were in town wedding planning. We live in California. We would definitely recommend Bowerbird for any floral needs! And you must visit the Bowerbird Apothecary shop if you haven't already!

  • First, let me say that the venue we used had suggested Bowerbird and that is why we ultimately decided to go with this florist. We were given red flags like when she didn't call me back after several phone calls or when she missed our scheduled consultation and didn't call us even though our daughter was coming from out of town. I was very concerned that we had made a mistake but we had already given $1500 deposit or I would have found another florist. We were finally able to meet and she showed us greenery layered on our tables but what we got was a few, very dry olive branches scattered on them instead. Our bridal bouquet of peonies was nice and her hair comb was very nice as well. I think we were just very disappointed in what she showed us at the consultation versus what she ultimately gave us. Would not recommend.

  • Diane with Bowerbird did a great job! She really worked hard to bring my vision to fruition. She is very creative and good at what she does. I can’t comment on “value” because I don’t know what flowers cost but I do believe I got my money’s worth. If you want to work with someone who is kind, at the top of her game, and willing to work hard for you, then Bowerbird is the place to go.
