  • From the moment I met Yvonne, I knew I wanted to work with her. Prior to meeting Yvonne, I looked into other vendors but none of them came relatively close to the level of service, consideration and expertise that Yvonne had to offer. She works with your budget, spends quality time to get to know you as a person in order to help realize your vision, and is exceptionally knowledgeable on all things flowers. Aside from the circle arch I wanted for my ceremony, I knew very little else about what I wanted when I began working with Yvonne. It was through her thoughtful ideas and guidance that led to creating a classic look that enhanced the venue and complemented my dress so well. She puts her heart into her work and truly cares about what you want even if you don’t quite know it at first. It was such a pleasure working with Yvonne. I am so impressed by her work and professionalism. When you choose Yvonne, you choose a team you can trust to curate and execute beautiful floral arra... Read more

  • Working with Yvonne and her team on our reception decor was such a great experience! I didn't know exactly what I wanted at our first meeting, but her breadth of experience in this business allowed her to ask good questions and walk me through various options until we'd landed at a place that fit my style and my budget. She was responsive throughout the process and did an amazing job setting up day-of. We got so many compliments on how warm and classy and glowy the reception space looked (lots of candles, greenery, etc. to warm up a wintery Chicago evening). She also did the flowers for our ceremony, which turned out exactly as envisioned. I don't have professional photos back from our photographer yet, but I'll upload a few to this review once I do!

    Elle, you were such a wonderful bride to work with and beautiful inside and out. It was really our pleasure from beginning to the finish line. YJDecorating

  • My husband and I hired YJDecorating for our recent wedding at Garfield Park Conservatory. Because the venue itself is stunning, we wanted simple, yet tasteful decorations that consisted of lots of candles and a large wooden arch. To say that YJDecorating delivered is an understatement. After speaking with owner Yvonne Polenc, we chose large floating candles-used for both the ceremony and reception- and a beautiful, rustic wooden arch that was built on site with gorgeous greenery. My guests are still raving about how lovely everything was! While we only hired YJDecorating for the decorations, Yvonne and her team didn’t stop there. My brother somehow failed to deliver on his role as the lead organizer so Yvonne stepped up to the plate without even being asked and took over like the boss that she is! The extra details that her team assisted with did not go unnoticed, and we couldn’t have been more grateful. When you hire the right people for your wedding, the stress level complet... Read more

  • Yvonne and The Crew, at YJD are utterly amazing and stylish. She took a vision and made it into a reality. She was accessible, calm, knowledgeable, punctual, professional and genuine. From the very beginning to the end, Yvonne, was there not an assistant, Yvonne. I, highly recommend YJD decorating. She’s great with any budget!

  • Yvonne and the YJ Decorating team did an incredible job on the flowers and decor for my wedding on October 5, 2019. The flowers and decor were absolutely stunning. Yvonne is very passionate about her work and her enthusiasm shines through. I really appreciated all of her guidance through the entire process--she gave great design ideas! She was reasonably priced, especially for the high-quality of her flowers. Her customer service was excellent and she promptly replied to all emails. I highly recommend YJ Decorating and will hopefully use Yvonne again for future events.

  • Yvonne was fantastic for our Indiana-American wedding! We had two different ceremonies and she worked to develop flowers and decorations that could be "flipped" to use at both ceremonies and then at the reception. This saved us money but allowed it to look like totally different events. The flowers were beautiful and we were thrilled with the product and the experience.

  • I reached out to Yvonne of YJD Decorating a short while before my wedding reception. We sat down, and after explaining my vision/desires, there was an instant connection. I left the showroom in extreme confidence that all would be grand. They exceeded expectations! Yvonne was extremely personable, her energy is amazing and I was provided with appreciated updates/communications throughout the entire process. The delivery was timely and everything was absolutely perfect. Their rental furniture complimented the overall crisp modern look of my celebration flawlessly. I look forward to doing future business with YJD Decorating.

  • YJDecorating was the perfect choice for my wedding day decor! From my first meeting with Yvonne I knew I had to have her! She was so knowledgeable and she immediately got the look I was going for. She was able to make my vision come to life and I couldn't have been more satisfied with the results. She did the centerpieces, personal flowers, clear pedestals, tea lights, floating candles, flower pedals, and chandelier backdrop. I didn't have to worry about a thing and the quality was amazing. I would definitely recommend Yvonne to anyone I know and I would call on her again for any future events.

  • Yvonne was such a joy to work with. I know nothing about flowers (or really about any plants at all), but she was able to turn the vague description of what I had in my head in to reality! I remember walking in to my venue once it was decorated and thinking WOW! She was also great to work with on our budget, giving us a variety of options for each aspect so we can decide our priorities, and where to best put our money within the package. Would recommend her to anyone!

  • Yvonne not only did a gorgeous job, she came in at a lower budget than all other vendors I met with. She found smart ways to cut costs and executed my vision perfectly. She even met me at the venue one day to walk through and talk about vision. Highest recommendation.

  • Yvonne made my vision come true, she went above and beyond my expectations. I previously talked to another florist who I felt was just trying to make a sale. However Yvonne explained everything in detail. She was reasonably priced. You get a lot for your money. My wedding flowers were breathtaking and we got so many compliments!!! She was awesome!!!

  • Thank you YJDecorating for coming to my rescue with just one week before my wedding ! Our canopy was beautiful and exactly what I envisioned. I would recommend them to any bride looking for a beautiful backdrop on their wedding day.

  • YJDecorating was absolutely incredible to work with for my May 2019 wedding. Prior to finding them I had met with many floral teams in Chicago but could not find a team that understood my vision and was willing to work within my budget. After meeting with the YJD team I knew instantly that they were the right team for me. They took their time asking me questions about every detail in my wedding, and worked exceptionally hard to offer me many options that would keep costs at or below my budget. As a detail oriented person I appreciated so much that they shared their thought process on every piece and that they took the time to explain why some flowers would be better than others etc. YJDecorating is a true hidden gem in Chicago. If your budget is important and you want a team that will work with you every step of the design process then go check them out, I highly recommend them!

  • Yvonne was great to work with. I didn't come in with a super clear vision of what I wanted for my wedding, but she helped me create that with joy and excitement (other vendors weren't as warm if I didn't have explicit instructions). I was also very cost conscious, and Yvonne was extremely helpful in helping me identify which choices would save me a little money here and there. The bouquets and tables looked STUNNING on my wedding day (we got so many compliments!), and the bouquets are still kicking one week after the ceremony. Thank you so much for helping to make my wedding day so special!!
