  • Needless to say, I was not all happy with Kate or her services. She pretty much promised a dream and all we got was a nightmare. In the beginning she was all in and motivated and showed great pictures of her previous events. She told us not to worry that she has many years of experience and will bring our dream wedding to life on any budget. The pictures were beautiful and she was saying all of the right things that a bride to be wants to hear so my fiancee and I were sold. Once we started working with her (of course after giving a non-refundable deposit check) she became hard to work with, not dependable and she even told us her "store" took care of everything that we may need for our big day but everything we asked her about or asked her to do, there was one issue or another. Her negative energy and lack of creative enthusiasm really made the planning process not something I want to remember. She was suppose to provide floral arrangements for venue (centerpieces) and bridal p... Read more

  • Kate exceeded our expectations and made my daughter's wedding more than we could have ever imagined. She provided flowers for the entire bridal party including a gorgeous brooch and rose bouquet for the beautiful bride to the beautifully amazing centerpieces. I highly recommend DKW Designs for all occasions. DKW Designs provided with a breathe taking décor from church to the venue at an amazing price. All of our guest are still talking about the wedding they loved everything about it. We are extremely happy with the way DKW Designs made my daughter's wedding magical.

  • DKW Designs exceeded my expectations and made my wedding more than I could have ever dreamed. From the bridesmaids bouquets to the beautifully creative centerpieces DKW Designs rocked my wedding. Every florist I went to prior to DKW told me what I wanted to do could not be done until I met with Kasia at DKW. I wanted a spring theme with birdcages and cherry blossoms. Kasia took my idea and transformed it into more than I could have hoped. I highly recommend DKW Designs for all occasions. Not only did DKW Designs provide breathe taking décor from church to the venue but I also received my wedding day jewelry at amazing prices from them as well as bridesmaids gifts. I will be passing along my recommendations to my friends who will be getting married soon. Extremely happy with the way DKW Designs made my wedding magical.

  • Dkw design exceeded my expectations. Kasia and her staff are not only very talented but also very professional. I walked in the store without an appointment when my wedding was only two weeks away. I lost hope because no other vendor would do my centerpieces in such a short period of time. When i met with Kasia she was absolutely amazing. I told her exactly what I wanted (i was also on a budget) and she and her staff made my vision come true. I had my wedding at The venetian in the palazzo ballroom (and for you who have been there know that the room is huge and the ceilings are extremely high) My centerpieces were absolutely beautiful, the guests were amazed and they filled up the room... (Kasia was so helpful and actually gave me tips on how to save and also met with me to help me find jewelry and my headpiece. Thank you so much Kasia and staff for exceeding my expectations. I am extremely pleased and i cannot wait to work with you again in the future in the future.

  • Cate, the owner of DKW Design, was extremely professional and provided me with the most beautiful centerpieces. They were exactly what I wanted and she even added lights in the vases to make my crystals sparkle!!!! I also bought beautiful jewelry from her for my wedding day, which I still receive compliments on to this day. She went out of her way to make beautiful winter wonderland themed wedding decor for my house and venue!! I was exceptionally pleased with her and would recommend her services to anyone for any occasions, not just weddings. She has wonderful ideas and can execute any vision you may have for your special occasion! Eliana P

  • Kate was very nice and helpful, she knew that I was on a budget and she helped me out" as much as she could " 'however, things did not turn out as planned everything went left. I was very sad at my reception because things were completely different from when we spoke. There weren't enough chair covers, the table setting was different and I hated my church flowers and sweetheart table. When I saw her at the end of the reception and asked her what happened all I got was I had a bad day too. I felt horrible because I know she's very talented and all I did was brag about her to my family and friends and I felt like she just pushed me aside. I paid my money and I expected something else. In my opinion she dropped the ball on this one and I will never get that feeling I thought I was going to get when I saw my reception decor.

  • I was happy with the final product of my invitations and menu cards however I was not happy with Kate's service... She did not listen to a lot of the requests I had which were very important such as "Adult only reception," Specifications on colors etc. I emailed Kate about everything and had to return a bunch of invitations to her... I do not recommend her services although she is very talented her staff is not.

  • I met with Kasia from DKW Designs several times to discuss my floral arrangements for my wedding on 7/27/13. She was very patient with me, went over my ideas and made me a sample of what my centerpieces would look like on my wedding. My floral arrangements (centerpieces and bridesmaids & groomsmen flowers) on my wedding day surpassed my expectations. DKW Designs also decorated a vintage stroller and provided draping and decorations in my venue. She again captured and exceeded my expectations. I purchased 2 jewelry sets for my wedding which I loved and it was at an incredibly reasonable price. The reason I gave her a lower score was because I had paid for one of my jewelry sets and was never notified that it came in and ultimately it was sold to another customer. I eventually did get my jewelry set, however it was slightly defective, and since it was the week of my wedding there was nothing that could be done. We had discussed and part of my contract was to have my church pews d... Read more

  • My family had been planning a 50th anniversary party for my parents for a year. In January 2013 we contacted Kasia to have her do our chair covers, saches, table runners, menus and backdrop behind the couple for the May 18th, 2013 event. The chair covers were the wrong ones, the runners and saches on two of the tables had a different pattern and the menus were to have a gold backing on them, not just a strip of paper put into the napkins. When I went to the hall to check it over before guest arrived, I noticed all of these errors. Tried calling on two numbers to get in touch with her, leaving messages, with no reponse. The manager at the hall called her and low and behold she called him immediately. All that was given was an apology and that things could not be changed because our chair covers were at someone elses event. So, thats two events that got botched up. Called her again the next day to mention about the menus having no gold backing, as stated on our receipt and that we... Read more

    Dear Evonne, I just visited our profile, for a 1st time for a long time, and I am in shock, reading your review. Many things people say about me and my business, but never nobody said that " it's a joke" . So lets start from the beginning. CHAIR COVERS- yes my crew made mistake and put on wrong ones - the more expensive ones. It my not be what you wanted, but it made your event look even nicer.RUNNERS- when I meet you for a first time, you liked a specific design I made 5 years earlier. The custom linens ware done for this clients120 guests. You said that exactly what you expect. We agreed on them, then. 2 weeks before event you informed me, that you have over 160 We had to create extra 40 sashes and 6 runners. It was impossible to get the same fabric, so we did the only think we could. We matched the color. The entire event color palette was still perfect. MENU CARDS- i agree, not perfect. You should receive full refund on them. BUT I WILL GET BACK TO THE REFUND! When you walk in to the room my crew was still there. you said NOTHING to them. It was still the time to fix things.YOU STARTED YOUR CALLS WHEN THEY WARE GONE! Yes I did not unswear for a very simple reason. I WAS BEAD RESTING, TRYING NOT TO LOSE MY TWINS! When the office called me I pick up, because I new something was wrong. Unfortunately my crew was long gone, stuck in traffic. SO CONVENIENT. I didn't have a chance to get back to you because my pregnancy made me postpone a lot of things. It was most of the time extremely difficult to get up in the morning. But I was working 60-70 h a week, to make my client happy. Sometimes I failed. I apologize. the event was success, what I've heart from the venue.You refund the full payment you made using AMEX. Even for a things PERFECTLY DONE It's OBVIOUS that you ware trying just to get free service. If I was fine, you'd never won the game you played. So enjoy, as I enjoy my PERFECTLY HEALTHY BABIES:)
