  • In October we met with Vicky, sat for at least an hour, told her what we wanted, gave her $150 deposit. we expwected a quote. Never heard from her. Finally after many attempts, in January we had a phone conversation. The conversation began, "since I did not know the budget.....". I wanted to scream! She had a budget, we showed her pictures, discussed ides, told her approximate numbers (guests, tables). Needless to say, we did not use her. She had several excuses as to why we did not hear from her. Unacceptable repsonses. I felt like she was disorganized and back pedaled when my mom called her. She did not want to refund any money of the depsoit, her response "In the contract......". In the end she agreed to refund $100. We wlll see. Stay tuned. Our wedding venue DOES NOT recommend this florist, even thou it is in the neighborhood. Good luck if you choose her.

    Patricia, upon reading your review not only am I disappointed I am concerned in a world that social media can hurt with a push of a button. I met with the groom & your daughter on October 26th. During the consultation we discussed many ideas and before they left they put down the deposit of $150. They asked for prices and I gave them a ball park figures for some of the items we spoke about. I wrote down they wanted to keep the budget around $1500. When you called and mentioned the quote was way over the budget, my response to not knowing her budget was commented while I was looking back over the bridal profile sheet that she didn't completely fill out. Later in our conversation, I did say we discussed a approx $1500 budget however when I give a quote I always give different price points higher & lower for every item so the bride can pick and choose what is important to her. In your daughters case I had no idea the count of table centerpieces nor chair bow/flowers to know if it fit the budget or not. We discussed rental of items and other ideas to be more affordable as well. A quote does not lock anyone into prices it only gives price choices for items we talked about. I am disappointed you thought my "accident" which took me from work was an unacceptable excuse for not hearing from me sooner. No one is back peddling. The quote was given to your daughter Neila in the middle of December as soon as I could. I wish Neila and Jessie the best and am sorry you are upset and have chosen to go else where.

  • I simply can't recommend Vicky and her staff enough! Vicky spent so much time with us going over every detail for the big day! She turned into family by the Wedding Day! The floral arrangements she put together were breathtaking. I had countless comments on how gorgeous the flowers were. Vicky took the vision in my head and made it a reality. Couldn't be any happier with her work, she is an incredibly talented artist. She was even there to fluff my dress before I went down the aisle. There is simply NOBODY better!

    Adrianne, Thank you so much. It was my pleasure designing the flowers for your wedding. I'm so happy I captured your vision!!! Best wishes to both of you. Vicky

  • I chose Don's own for my flowers since they were highly recommended. I now know why. I met with Vicky to help pick out flowers and she was highly knowledgeable on every kind of flower and greenery. The day of the wedding, she was there every step of the way, from showing us how to hold the flowers to look best in photos, to making sure my dress was fluffed, perfect, & straight the whole time. Once I saw the reception room, all of the flowers looked exactly like I envisioned and the room even smelled like eucalyptus from the greenery she added. She's the best in the business!

  • Vicky had everything covered - weddings are her thing! She gave options at various price points and explained the differences between each. She and her staff adjusted their schedule when we had a last minute change in plans. And - the flowers were beautiful!!!

  • For someone that knows nothing about flowers I was really impressed that the owner was able to create a beautiful bouquet that was exactly what I wanted and everything mixed well but also brought out vibrant colors.

  • I am unable to comment on the quality of finished work, because I ended up sacrificing the deposit and finding another florist. My first meeting with Vicky was great. She was generous with her time and showed me books with ideas for my wedding the following summer. I didn't have a clear vision, plus I know little about flowers, so I appreciated her. We settled on bouquets, centerpieces, boutonnieres and all other essential details during our initial meeting. She promised a quote, but asked for patience because summer was their busy season. Our initial meeting was the second week of August. I followed up in Oct. asking for a quote, which was met with a response saying it is still busy season and I'd have something at the end of Oct. I heard back in the middle of Dec. Quotes are not provided in writing and instead the shop verbally provides a range of price options. While I appreciated having three different pricing options for each element, I need to see the names of flowers with the nu... Read more

  • Working with Vicky was a blast! We had a consult months before our big day and she put her own spin on our inspiration pictures based on what was in season. We ended up reducing our flower budget prior to the big day but the centerpieces didn't suffer. We swapped some expensive flowers for some cheaper ones and it still turned out beautiful. I especially appreciated Vicky at the ceremony, she was there while I got into my dress and gave us instruction moments before walking down the aisle.

  • Vicki is amazing. My experience from start to finish with her was wonderful and she helped me create the most beautiful wedding with her flowers. I wasn't sure exactly what idea I had in mind when I first spoke with her, but by the end, she helped me pick out the most gorgeous bridal bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, centerpieces, cake flowers, and more with her expertise. What was more important was that I really did leave a lot to her discretion because I trusted her. She took my general thoughts and used her expertise to pick out an arrangement of flowers and colors to really make the colors and collections pop - people were complimenting them all night and I could hardly bear to see the flowers wilt over the days. Vicki is super busy with the shop, but always made sure that I felt like my needs and questions were being addressed. Moreover, she had worked with many of our vendors before (like the Esperanza Mansion and our cake place) so she took took the initiative to make appropr... Read more

  • We chose Don's Own Flower Shop as florists for our wedding, and we were very happy about that. Vicky is an artist and is a professional. All the wedding decorations, bride's and bridesmaids' bouquets and everything else was fantastic. Moreover, Vicky was very flexible and eager to discuss what types of flowers, decorations and services could be chosen within our budget. Also, as we do not live in Geneva or somewhere close, it was very easy to discuss all the things with Vicky by FaceTime. Thank you very much for an amazing job and all your help!

  • OK, I get that flowers are expensive, but the price here seemed kinda high for what we received on our wedding day. The flowers were beautiful, and I enjoyed the full service accommodations that came with it. However, the people we met with took awful notes. I understand that creative types may lack organization, but everything I requested/wanted was scribbled on a notepad and there was no rhyme or reason to anything that was written. Errors were also made when it came to our requests simply because the organization was poor. Paying for these flowers was also unorganized. I am convinced that we may have been charged twice for items. Our bill was determined by calculator that added up sums found in their scribble marks. I'd prefer an Excel document or something more tangible/legible. biggest PRO: Great creativity biggest CON: lack of organization/price

  • Don's Own did an amazing job with the flowers for our wedding! Vicky is a true artist and the flowers were more beautiful than I had imagined! As we did not live in Geneva, much of the planning was done by phone or e-mail with only one or two face-to-face meetings. Although there was some miscommunication at times, Vicky did a great job envisioning what I wanted and we couldn't be happier with the result! She was right on site on the day of the wedding assuring that all the floral arrangements were perfect and even assisted me with my train right before walking down the aisle! Now that's service!!

  • I had a great experience with Vicky at Don's Own! When I came in, all I had was a ton of random pictures of what I liked and I had no idea what I actually wanted. She helped me decide and was very patient and accommodating. During the consultation, and up until my wedding day, I didn't even know what my bouquet was going to actually look like - but I left it to them, and it turned out amazing. I was so pleased with every bouquet, boutonniere and church decorations. She listened to what I wanted and made it happen. The price I paid was much more than what I wanted, or expected, but.. OMG, it was worth every penny. She even helped me work out individual items that I could add or remove to make it more affordable. Just the time she spent with me figuring out the budget was a nice addition. i got the full service, so she was even there on my wedding day to make sure I liked everything and made sure everything went as planned and set up correctly.

  • I used Don's Own because I was getting married at the Belhurst in Geneva and wanted to work with someone local. I can't really speak to price because I didn't do any comparisons. What I can say is that Vicky was extremely helpful in the planning process. I made an appointment with her and she spent over an hour talking with my fiance and I about what we might want on our wedding day. She was knowledgable and flexible enough to quote out a small, medium and large size for almost everything. She spent a lot of time planning and quoting centerpieces that we didn't end up using, and she took that in stride and was just as helpful with our smaller order. She reminded me of upcoming due dates which was very helpful for a busy bride. Finally, the finished products were absolutely beautiful, which is what really matters in the end. I was very happy with our flowers, I would definitely recommend giving them a try.
