Great customer service from Caitlin - she even helped me pick out the right flavor of card! What a great time!

Christina at Dilly Lily is incredible to work with. She was able to take our completely unformed ideas and turn them into something beautiful that exceeded our expectations. We deliberated about design for months, and Christina patiently worked with us and our planner to offer offer guidance until we had something perfect. I never though I would be a bride who was obsessed with her bouquet, but I was absolutely in love with it! We highly recommend Dilly Lily for weddings or any other events! More...

I started out with another florist and so happy it didn't work out because then I wouldn't have had the incredible experience I had with Dilly Lily. Christina and Eric are genius.. They listen and then create artistic masterpieces. I just hope the photographer got pictures! We received so many compliments on how unique and spectacular the flowers were. I love cali lilies!

I have always loved this florist. The staff are friendly and the designs are elegant and creative. My husband and son (not flower people) surprised me with this magnificent arrangement for my birthday-3 Days later  it is even more stunning as the flowers continue to open.I highly recommend.

My wife is obsessed with flowers and gardening so flowers were hugely important to her. Everything was going to revolve around the flowers, the venue, the color scheme, lighting, everything so this was very very important. Our venue was also going to require a lot of greenery to help make the place look good (greenery on long marble staircase, water fountain, etc) but Dilly Lilly was able to meet all of our needs. We had a consultation at their shop and they were great, very accommodating, work with you to get what you want but also keep it within what is possible depending on whats in bloom at the time of your wedding.  All the flowers were beautiful, table settings were perfect, the brides bouquet was amazing and I loved my boutonniere. And they set up so fast I don't think I even saw them. After the wedding my wife packed up all the flowers left behind and took them home because she loved them so much so our house is overflowing with flowers now. Great to work with really a fan of their work. suggestion though, please please please, after someone pays thousands and thousands of dollars on flowers, and requests a scrap of ribbon for the photographer for some shots, do not say sure but it will be a 5 dollar charge. Wife was livid when we were told we would be billed 5 dollars for scrap ribbon after spending over 6,000.00 on flowers already. But luckily they waived it, and after the pre wedding stress bled off it really was no big deal looking back on it. More...

We used Dilly Lily for our wedding and were thrilled with the results. We shopped around for florists for a while and for what we were asking for, we felt many other florists were trying to take advantage of the fact that it was our wedding and therefore up-charging everything. Dilly Lily was the first florist, we felt, that gave us a fair quote. Their staff was incredibly friendly, helpful and creative. Our guests are still complimenting us on the floral displays a month later. I would recommend Dilly Lily to anyone looking for a florist for their Chicago wedding. More...

I couldn't be happier with choosing to work with Dilly Lily. I placed a phone order (from out of town) for an arrangement to be delivered to my girlfriend. The customer service was great, delivery was courteous and thoughtful (they even waited around a bit for my girlfriend to arrive so the flowers wouldn't sit out in the cold), and the arrangement was spectacular!

Lily was one of our nicest, most accommodating vendors. I truly enjoyed working with her to implement our vision for our wedding. We had 200 people at our wedding and wanted a chuppah, and Lily worked with me to get the romantic look I wanted while finding innovative ways to rent plants/candles to keep costs down. She also designed beautiful hairpieces for my bridesmaids (my hairstylist said it was her favorite piece she's ever seen for a wedding), and designed a beautiful flower for our cake. I absolutely loved how the centerpieces and bouquets turned out and couldn't thank her enough. Definitely recommend to anyone! More...

I got my bouquet from here and it was absolutely breathtaking! Lily was so knowledgeable (because I knew nothing about flowers) I just showered her Pinterest photos and she brought it to life! It was a good price and definitely a great focal point! Very happy with my service!! Thank you for all the beautiful florals! More...

Dilly Lilly designed the bouquets, table and altar flowers and other decor for my daughter’s wedding Saturday and we were so impressed!

Dilly Lily were sensational to work with for our wedding day as well as the beautiful flowers they provided for myself and our bridal party. I worked with the special event coordinator, Lily and the customer service was excellent. I live 8 hours away, so we personally spoke over the phone for my vision for our wedding day and I felt like we instantly became friends just based off how warm and friendly she was. She even took a look at my wedding floral Pinterest board to get a feel of what I was searching for. The days prior to our wedding, we went to meet and greet the florists at Dilly Lily, and every single employee there was so inviting and pleasant! Lily showed me a quick preview of our flowers and the ribbon that would be used for our bouquet. I didn't get to personally pick up our flowers the day of, but they were exactly what we wanted! It was a loose, natural, garden like vibe that I was looking for for our lily pond wedding. Dilly Lily truly went above and beyond for our wedding day from the bouquet, the the boutonniere and even our floral crown for our dog! You can't go wrong with the service they provide all around!

Happened to walk by here today and just loved this shop! The owner, Rick, was so friendly and helpful. I left with 3 gorgeous and uniquely potted plants to liven up my home. I love that they buy their flowers from sustainable, socially responsible farms and source local when possible. They also have a curated selection of gift and personal items like lotions, oils and candles that use safer, high quality ingredients. I will be back here for sure! More...

Working with Meg at Dilly Lilly was a pleasure. She brought my simple vision to unsurpassed level and made my event elegant and beautiful. Meg smoothed over my nervous and left me completely confident that the final product would be exceptional, and it was. Delivery and their set up was a cinch. Meg was confident, creative, and pleasant. She did her best to stay within our budget, offering options to keep the price down. More...

OMG! Meg is amazing! Everyone at Dilly Lily has been so kind and wonderful! AND the flowers for my wedding were beyond perfect! They even surprised me with details I didn't expect.  I really couldn't have asked for a better floral experience for my wedding. I got so many compliments on the flowers and their delivery was quick and timely!    ALSO they placed flowers on my wedding cake and as an artist I was so impressed with how they arranged them.  I about cried when I saw that!     Lastly when it comes to e-mail Meg was great about promptly and professionally responding.  If you choose Dilly Lily you are guaranteed amazing GORGEOUS flowers and service.  Thanks Meg! I'll be sending you photos from our wedding soon. More...

I worked for awhile with a business called We Deliver, the arrangements I picked up from this florist were spectacular so much so that when I had a friend go into the hospital I stopped in and ordered flowers from Dilly Lily and the recipient of the arrangement was so thrilled by the quality of the flowers and the arrangement !

We used Dilly Lily for our September 2016 wedding in downtown Chicago. Christine, Meg and their team were fantastic throughout the whole process - during planning they sat with us in multiple meetings to really make sure they understood our vision, and also helped with overall suggestions for the room's decor. On the day of the wedding, they took care of everything from delivery and set-up to a donation to Ronald McDonald house for the leftover flowers at the end of the night. During our preview, I had a few tweaks to the arrangement, and Meg was easily able to accommodate them into the final day-of flowers. They created gorgeous bouquets for me and 5 bridesmaids, and then perfectly coordinated boutonnieres for my groom and groomsmen. The flowers at our venue were absolutely stunning, vibrant and fresh, and perfectly fit in the vision that I had hoped for the day. Our ceremony was originally planned to be outside but due to rain had to be moved indoors, and the floral arrangements they provided still made our altar area feel lush and beautiful. We also got tons of compliments on the table centerpieces as well. Overall, I couldn't recommend Dilly Lily more highly to to anyone planning a wedding in Chicago - they were easy to work with and their final product was absolutely beautiful! More...

Dilly Lily completed our big day. The arrangements were beautiful and fresh.  My bouquet was stunning and the table arrangements set the fairy tale mood. If I was Kim Kardashian, I would have Dilly Lily make me walls of roses on the regular. In all seriousness, Dilly Lily was a joy to work with from the initial consultation to meeting at the Dilly Lily shop and talking about my vision. The creative process was everything I imagined it would be from a planning perspective, which made the meeting all that more fun and special.  Their shop is wonderful.  We actually picked one of the vase designs based upon what we saw displayed.  It also helped with the creative juices.  We kept all the vases we used for the arrangements, which was awesome since every guest was able to take home an arrangement.  I kept a large number of vases for myself, and despite a hot hour-long ride home in the trunk of a limo, the flowers lasted the rest of the week.  Dilly Lily also helped us source chairs for our event, which made arranging the furniture rental stress free.  All deliveries were timely and well orchestrated. Thank you, Dilly Lily, for making our day feel magical! More...

Meg of Dilly Lily created my wedding bouquet as well as a bridesmaid bouquet and four boutonnieres.  They were STUNNING. Meg took an "inspiration" photo and helped make it my own . One of the best parts of the experience was having a mock up of the bouquet made ahead of time and with a few tweaks it was just perfect. They were very accommodating and easy to communicate with by email. I am so glad my friend recommended Dilly Lily to me and I am already doing the same! More...

My second experience with this wonderful florist and it was even better than the previous!  Ordered an arrangement for a friend in the hospital.  She was released unexpectedly early, and left before the delivery man arrived.  The owner of Dilly Lily called me personally to let me know that his delivery man was at the hospital and could not deliver.  I gave him her home address (on the far side of the city from the hospital), and the flowers were delivered the very same day!  Excellent service!  And the arrangement was stunning and really brightened my friend's day!

Dilly Lily provided the flowers for my daughter's wedding reception at The Palmer House Hilton.  The ceremony was at Old St. Patrick's Church and Dilly Lily recommended no flowers at the church due to it's own innate décor (who does that?).  We had a totally fun meeting planning flowers, colors, etc.  Their shop is amazing.  They provide a "no pick up option" after the reception, so all of our guests got to take home beautiful centerpieces.  The best ever!!!

I was recently diagnosed with breast cancer so the past few weeks have been very hard. During this uncertain time, I have received THREE stunning, gorgeous, and breathtaking flower arrangements from THREE girlfriends who do not know each other and live in different cities. My first large arrangement was delivered to my car as I waited in front of my children's school. The employee could not have been nicer. The 2nd and 3rd were delivered to my home.  These floral arrangements scream color, happiness, variety and love. I used Dilly Lily 14 years ago for my grandparent's anniversary party and 12 years ago for my grandpa's 90th birthday. We have our son's bar mitzvah in 2 years...I think I know who my florist will be. Thank you Dilly Lily! More...

My husband and I used Dilly Lily for our wedding in August 2015, and we could not have been more impressed. I met with Christine upon recommendations from various people, and I am very happy that I did. I came in with a number of ideas from Pinterest, and Christine and her team really made my vision come to life. My mom, who was very nervous about the flowers during the planning process, was blown away by the work that Dilly Lily did. My wedding day was one of the hottest in 2015, and Dilly Lily arranged to have a second bouquet made for me because they did not want me to have a wilting one when I walked down the aisle. The aforementioned story just shows you how thoughtful they are and the kind of service they provide, which makes them worth every penny. I cannot thank them enough for everything they did. More...

I can't believe I forgot to leave a review! I was visiting from out of town Mother's Day weekend and had completely forgotten to get a gift for my grandma. On my way out to the suburbs, I popped in with little hope that there would be any flowers left.  The cute little storefront looked like a spring santa's workshop, as all the employees were diligently working to put together all the beautiful creations for all the patrons who were much smarter than I and had ordered ahead. But I was in luck (and I can't believe what a great inventory they kept on such a busy weekend)! Without any signs of frustration or disdain, the lead arranger asked me what color scheme I was looking for and explained the prices for different sizes. He arranged my pretty little bouquet quickly and I was in and out in 10 minutes. The arrangement even survived my having to run almost a mile to the clybourn metra station after my transportation plans changed due to the whole red/brown/purple line mess lol I'm moving to Uptown soon but will absolutely go out of my way for all my floral needs in the future. Hopefully I'll even be one of those smart pre-ordering patrons next time! More...

Christine and her team of artists are so talented that their arrangements blow me away every time. We used Dilly Lily for our wedding in Puerto Rico a few years back and our guests commented that the room looked right out of a bridal magazine. They were right. It was beyond my wildest expectations. Their attention to detail is unparalleled. Dilly Lily is my husband's go to for special occasions and I always look forward to the door bell ringing to find the most beautiful flowers. More...

I wouldn't have changed a thing.

Thank you so much for everything!

THANK YOU to Dilly Lily for providing such beautiful wedding floral. We chose Dilly Lily to do our personal floral and Christine/Britt knocked it out of the park. They were so easy to work with, creative, communicative, and understood my vision and really brought it to life. They are truly experts in their field. I also feel like I got a ton of "bang for my buck". I was in love with my bridal bouquet and wish I could have carried it with me forever.

I would highly recommend Dilly Lily for any floral needs!

My husband and I chose Dily Lily to do our wedding flowers for our August 2014 wedding. They did all our flowers for our ceremony, bouquets, and reception centerpieces/design. It was one of the best decisions we made when it came to our wedding! Working with Christine/Britt was so easy! In our initial meeting, Christine completely understood my vision and it was an easy fit. We met with a lot of florists in the city and Dily Lily was the most flexible when it came to budget and giving us what we wanted. Our floral budget wasn't as high as what a lot of people do in the city, so we wanted to choose someone who would do an amazing job but not have a huge price tag. Dily Lily did exactly that! The bouquets were gorgeous, I was stunned! The reception turned out like a dream, better than I had imagined. To top it all off, they were so easy to work with. Anytime I needed something I heard back right away and they were on top of everything working with our church and reception venue about drop off and pick up times. I honestly would not have changed anything. If you are looking for a beautiful florist for you wedding go with Dily Lily! More...

I had the pleasure of being introduced to Dilly Lily a number of years ago. What I noticed first, was their true love of the art of flower arranging, and of making these flowers look even more beautiful through unique and effortless design. Christine and her team, are a delight to work with on a small event or a large one. It was a simple choice for me as an marketing and event planner to reach out to Dilly Lily when I needed my flowers for my wedding and wedding party (2012/2013). The designs were amazing, and my family and friends were blown away at how beautiful my bouquet and flower arrangements were. A huge hit and accent to my special day!I constantly recommend Dilly Lily to my friends, family and anyone in the market for the best quality and design in flower arrangements. Keep up the amazing work Christine and team! Love you guys! More...

Dilly Lily did the flowers  for my December 2012 wedding in downtown Chicago, and I cannot say enough wonderful things about how fantastic they were! First, from my very first consultation all the way up to delivery on the big day, they were professional, prompt, patient, kind, and always available via email or phone.  Most importantly, as for all the bouquets, boutonnières, ceremony flowers and reception centerpieces? They were absolutely stunning! From the beginning I had a pretty clear vision of what I hoped my flowers would look like, and of the romantic, classic, timeless feel I wanted for our reception. Dilly Lily "got it" - and executed it flawlessly. Christine and her team were truly a joy to work with. They are so hard working and they are clearly dedicated to making sure your wedding flowers are perfect and that your wedding day goes off without a hitch. Thanks Dilly Lily for helping to make our wedding day so special! I highly recommend Dilly Lily, you will not be disappointed. More...

2 November 2012

I had Dilly Lily do the floral arrangements for my wedding after being referred by another vendor.  For starters, I am either the best or the worst person to work with when it comes to flowers and I'm completely unsure as to which.  I know absolutely nothing about flowers except that they smell nice and there are different kinds.  I learned about a year ago that there were multiple types of roses .... that should say it all.  So I walked in to the shop for a consultation and they were incredibly nice from the beginning and never made me feel like I was a complete fool.  I gave them my budget, showed some pictures I pulled off of the knot of things I liked, and told them to do what the could.Best choice I made: trusting the professionals to know what they're doing.  As my bridesmaids and I walked to the church from the hotel (about 3 blocks down Michigan Ave.), we got asked by several women what kinds of flowers were in our bouquets and who made them.  We were also complimented throughout the night by our guests for having the best flowers any of them had ever seen at a wedding.   I was expecting compliments on the dress and the general "loveliness" of the wedding, but the get so detailed as to say that "the exact shade of orchids in the centerpieces and boutonnieres was one of the most exquisite and striking details" (one of my mother's friends) was definitely not anticipated.They handled delivery like pros - I never actually saw them the day of but everything was perfectly setup and waiting for us, they worked well with my budget ($4500) and never pushed me to spend more the way some of the other vendors I met with did.I absolutely recommend them and will definitely be back!

We used Dilly Lily for our 10.6.12 wedding. Right from the start, I knew they were the right florist for us. They shared the same aesthetic that we were going for and they were honest and knowledgeable about flower selections. I trusted them from the start. I knew that whatever they did for us would be beautiful and it was! My bouquet ended up being much more full and large than I anticipated and all of the other arrangements and pieces were just perfect. We had original found other florists that were more affordable, but I'm so glad that we spent a little bit more to get something as beautiful as we did. More...

I went to Dilly Lily for some last minute floral arrangements for my friend's bridal shower.  I didn't have an appointment and just walked-in with a few small vases, which we only needed buds to fill.  Not only were the super-busy staff very accommodating, they also helped to pick out flowers, arrange them nicely, fill the vases up with water, and pack it all beautifully with tissue paper in a box.  I almost didn't want to take the vases out of their packaging.The arrangements they made were beautiful and definitely made the table at Cafe BaBaReeba pop.  I would definitely use Dilly Lily again.  Also, the store is very cute and homey.  Flowers are fresh as if they were just cut.

My husband has ordered me flowers and had them delivered to me from Dilly Lily several times. Last week he ordered flowers for me that were supposed to delivered on Monday. Sadly, we had a death in the family and I took several days off of work. Dilly Lily was so kind enough to deliver the flowers the week after. Its hard to find businesses these days that care about their customers as much! Not only is the service great and the people kind... the flowers are out of this world! they are not large and gaudy but very high quality and very unique arrangements! I love this florist and highly recommend it! More...

I used Dilly Lily for my wedding in August, and I could not have been more pleased.  From day 1 they were GREAT to work with.  We told them our budget and our general likes and dislikes, and they really went to town creating our look.  Rebecca and her team did a fantastic job making the most of our budget and ensuring that we achieved the perfect cohesive look from the bouquets to the cocktail hour to the reception.  Everything looked exactly like what we saw at our showing, so there were no scary surprises,  Our tables involved a lot of candles, and between my mom and I we didn't notice a single one that burnt out, despite our reception going well past midnight.Highly recommend for the personalized and friendly service and extremely reliable results!

We used Dilly Lilly for the floral arrangements for our wedding last July, and I cannot imagine working with anyone else. We worked with Rebecca, whom my mom and I coined as our "unofficial wedding planner ." Not only did Rebecca arrange absolutely stunning centerpieces and bouquets, but she helped us sort out so many other creative details of the reception, such as ideas for color schemes, escort cards, lanterns, invitations...the list goes on... All the while, she remained extremely patient throughout all of my indecisiveness and really listened to my needs. Throughout the process, she really helped work with our budget, suggesting awesomely cost-effective solutions to achieve exactly what I had in mind.  I cannot recommend Dilly Lilly (and especially Rebecca!) highly enough!

Dilly Lily was a joy to work with for our wedding - the entire process from our first consultation to the wedding itself was flawless. Their team is an extremely talented group and they have the best customer service; emails and phone calls were replied to the same day and with such enthusiasm about our wedding. Working with Dilly Lily was incredibly stress-free. I told them what types of colors and flowers I envisioned for the wedding and they made it happen, even more beautifully than I imagined. The bouquets, centerpieces, boutonnieres, everything, was just stunning. Not only was the service outstanding and the flowers absolutely beautiful, but they stayed within our budget! I couldn't imagine working with another florist after the wonderful experience I had with Dilly Lily. More...

Amazing, smart, and design savvy...I needed a great client gift for a great client, here's HER reaction after receiving an Orchid arrangement designed by Dominique--who is not only talented with Orchids, but a damn nice guy to boot. I would not hesitate to depend on Dilly Lily to deliver the most tasteful presentation of flowers or living gifts, even for the most discerning of eyes.* OMG!!! We just received the most BEAUTIFUL (this doesn't even begin to describe them) orchids from you!!!! I have never seen such gorgeous presentation. WOW--I can't thank you enough!!!! Amazing! More...

When I want to send the very best, I trust Dilly Lily. I've gotten arrangements made on the spot within 10 minutes and I've also ordered flowers to be delivered in the city a few others times (need only a day's notice). PROS: Gorgeous floral arrangements
CONS: Pricing is a little higher than average but worth it!

Dilly Lily offers a wide selection of quality product at a high price point. I was impressed hen I first walked in because I found their large, spacious, very clean facility a step in the right direction. The design of the store was great, they really know which colors blend well, and so, they group their flowers together based on color, so, it really is a feast for the eyes! Their selection of flowers and colors throughout the store is amazing, since this store is fairly large, they can fit in so many wild and exotic flowers, most of which, look absolutley stunning! Above the main register is a selection of their 7 arrangements available. All of them look great and they are varied. All you have to say is "I'll have a number 3" and you just pick out the flowers you like and they'll design an arrangement that looks amazing no matter how varied the colors you choose are. Usually, an arrangement takes about 20 minutes, so, the speed is great, especially if you are in a tight situation! I was impressed, everything was just quality and their arrangements look great. But their prices are very high, but this very high price point represents their quality, you get what you pay for, and in a way, it's a deal because you really are getting a professional job done. Highly Recommended! More...

Over the course of a year, I received about 6 different floral arrangements from Dilly Lily.  They were some of the most colorful and sweetly elegant arrangements I have ever received.  They were usually delivered to my office and I received so many compliments from my co-workers on all of them.In addition to flowers, they also carry a small but wonderful selection of gifts and greeting cards.  If I lived in the area, I would probably frequent them more often.

Just got married at the Intercontinental Chicago in October and Dilly Lily did my flowers.They did a BEAUTIFUL job, incorporating lots of candles and white flowers, but the owner, Christine, even came that night to make sure it all looked right --AND made sure that I liked what I saw (which was simply gorgeous). I worked with Rebecca all other times, and she is wonderful, too. She was helpful and changed things around when I asked... she offered new suggestions, especially when I freaked out with all the money due to other vendors in the same week. The flower quality and arrangements are notoriously 5 star quality here, but I learned, first hand, about the staff service/friendliness/helpfulness as being 5 star quality, too. While its possible to find other florists that may have lower prices, to be honest, Dilly Lily worked exactly within my budget AND they made it a perfect night because I never once had to worry about whether I (and others) would like the finished produce once it was in their hands to do.

We were very fortunate to have Dilly Lily as one of our vendors for our wedding Sept 4th.  I worked with Rebecca from day one (she is so easy and fun to work with! ) and she and her team brought my vision to life more beautifully than I could have imagined.  Everything they did was gorgeous and so elegant, while keeping within our budget.  Our ceremony and reception were held in the 39th floor ballroom at Hotel 71.  When you factor in views of the city, the sunset, the candlelight and the design by Dilly Lily, the room almost brought me to tears.    I can honestly say I wouldn't have changed a thing!

Dilly Lily did the flowers for my June 2010 wedding, and they were just outstanding. From beginning to end, the process was seamless. For my initial consultation, my fiance and I met with Mary. We had a general idea for the flowers - hot pinks and lime green with a teeny bit of black thrown in - and we didn't want anything to do with traditional wedding flowers. We wanted ours unique. Enter Dilly Lily.Mary took what we told her, was able to immediately pull together some photos from previous weddings and draw up exactly what we wanted. She put together a mix of flowers, dahlias, spray roses, orchids, etc, and topped it off with some black velvet leaves to incorporate the black into the bouquet. She even created 2 different centerpiece ideas for me on the spot, and I loved both of them.We had a price point we had to hit in order to keep our budget, and a few days later Mary emailed us with an itemized list of the flowers and the final total, which she made come in right under budget.A couple weeks before the wedding, I headed back in with my mom and met with Rebecca to see the final mock up of my bouquet, and discuss any last changes. Rebecca was so easy to work with and the bouquet she showed me was beautiful.The day of the wedding, everything went off without a hitch. The centerpieces were perfect and all the bouquets/corsages/bouttonieres were great. One last thing. The Valentine's Day before our wedding, my husband called Dilly Lily and they made a special mini version of my bouquet for him to give me. I was surprised and loved it. It had been months since our initial consultation, so all my fiance could do was give our names. Mary looked in our file and created a gorgeous arrangement. As our Valentine's Day plans started early and included brunch, they had the bouquet ready to go as soon as the store opened and my fiance walked in. They really go the extra mile for you.I highly recommend Dilly Lily. More...

I love this place. So much that I take two busses to get here so I can buy a stupid card. I used to live above it so I would stop by pretty often for random happy items. They have great flowers and really awesome cards. Solid selection too. Plus they are all made of nice in there. I've been to other high end flower stores in the city and it feels like you're walking into the 9th gate of hell or something. It's flowers guys, why not be happy. Well Dilly Lily ladies (and gentlemen) definitely are. With good reason since that store is made of lovely! More...

Our experience could not have been better. I knew nothing about flowers and had not been involved in a wedding before my own. When we met for our first consultation, Mary made provided so many creative ideas. I left feeling really excited about the flowers for my wedding rather. Every step of the process was great. They were so accommodating and willing to change things in our order as things came up. They also made a sample of the table centerpieces before the wedding. Dilly Lily provided wonderful costumer service and great recommendations. When we met with Mary, she was very conscious of our budget and offered us options that allowed us to get what we wanted and were also in our budget. The staff here is absolutely wonderful to work with. You can tell that they enjoy their job and are passionate about what they do. They care about their customers, and you never feel like they're just trying to get as much money as they can from you. We had an idea to display pictures of our parents and grandparents on some sort of family tree for our place card centerpiece. We weren't sure how to do it, but the staff at Dilly Lily took our idea and turned it into a very creative and beautiful piece. I really cannot recommend them enough! More...

I confidently rely on Dilly Lily whenever I need to send a bouquet to a friend.  I can call up, give little direction other than a price range and know that the flowers will arrive as scheduled and will look lovely.  I hired Dilly Lily to do the flowers for my wedding.  The bouquets and boutonnieres turned out beautifully.  However, I had one large arrangement that was placed on the bar that didn't seem to fit with the theme and wasn't as nice as the rest of the flowers.  It was, of course, the most expensive piece they made.   Disappointed, I contacted Dilly Lily afterwards and they explained that they weren't able to get as many flowers as they needed and tried to substitute similar flowers to get the same look in the large arrangement.  They felt badly about the situation and refunded a portion of the cost.  I was happy with how they handled it afterwards, but still wish they would have done a better job on such an important day.  That being said, I still use them to send flowers and have been pleased.

Adorable store, warm people. Did not know this was an actual florist shop at first glance and walkthrough. Thought it was a random boutique with fun things. Then I saw the case of flowers which they had gorgeous uniquely colored roses and the biggest prettiest hydrangeas I have ever seen.Hydrangeas were $15 per stem understandably....I ended up going back another day when I had more time and I purchased a few items for almost $100.00, no flowers....was pleased with what I got, not so much at the price I paid however. Owner was talkative, we discussed her beautiful Murano glass chandeliers from Italy.... More...

I met with Rebecca from Dilly Lily and after leaving the appointment, I wanted SO badly to use her for my wedding.  Unfortunately the price she quoted was the very highest quote that I received and I just couldn't justify spending double on flowers when I am already spending a mini-fortune for this wedding. But, with that said, I want to sing Rebecca's praises.  She sat down with my mom and me and walked me through everything.  She was super enthusiastic, did not push anything on me, helped come up with ideas on how to save on cost, gave some really cool suggestions, and was just super professional.  She got me really excited about my wedding flowers!  Unfortunately like I said, the quote was too high for my budget, however if you have a bigger budget for flowers, I HIGHLY recommend working with Rebecca from Dilly Lily.  Granted, I didn't actually have her do my wedding, but I know she would have done an awesome job.

On our first date, my (now) husband brought me a single red rose from Dilly Lily. I was very impressed.

Since it's right around the corner from our house, I've stopped there numerous times to pick up a small gift or card for a friend, or some fresh flowers for our table. I am always delighted by the stems, the selection, and the friendly staff.

But it was just this past June that Dilly Lily won me over completely, by helping to make our very special wedding day come to life. Their uber-talented and lovely team listened to our needs/desires and met with me multiple times to discuss just the right floral arrangements for our Chicago wedding. When my bouquet arrived, I was overjoyed! Our arrangements for the ceremony and the reception were no less than magical.

Not one to fix what's not broken, my husband still stops by to bring home gorgeous flowers from Dilly Lily for birthdays / Valentine's / etc. and I am always elated.

Thanks Dilly Lily, for being such a lovely part of my life!

I could not have been happier with my experience working with Rebecca at Dilly Lily. I came in to Dilly Lily's shop not knowing anything about how the process worked, but was immediately at ease after meeting Rebecca. I just got a sense right off the bat that she was excited for me to be there, and excited to help make our wedding as gorgeous as possible. Budget was a consideration for us, and Rebecca totally got it. She came up with so many creative ways to trim the budget without "skimping" at all.
Bottom line, they were able to work within a budget that we were comfortable with, and on the day of the wedding when I saw the ballroom decorated for our ceremony and reception, I was totally blown away. I couldn't believe how beautiful everything turned out. I had a picture in my head of how everything would look...and it exceeded all expectations I could have ever dreamt up.
Not only was everything beautiful, but they were also on time, turned the ballroom over quickly from the ceremony to the reception and made everything run smoothly.
Bottom line...great to work with, professional, friendly, responsive and incredibly talented. I would absolutely recommend Dilly Lily to anyone planning a wedding (a friend of mine already has booked them as well!) and will continue to use them myself for all of my future floral needs.

Dilly Lily is the best! They provided the flowers and other decor for my wedding a month ago at the Notebaert Nature Museum. At our initial meeting, Rebecca listened intently to what I liked and didn't like. She read my personality perfectly and helped me find some direction. I knew what I liked (bold colors and exotic, natural flowers) and what I didn't like (pastels, roses, blah flowers) but didn't have an image of how I wanted my bouquet or centerpieces to look. Because she listened so well and was so into finding the right design for me, Rebecca instantly came up with something I LOVED. Plus, she and the entire staff were incredibly understanding. I was planning my wedding from San Francisco and work about 70 hours a week. As a result, I can be hard to reach and work around. They were incredibly responsive and would touch base with me regularly to be sure everything was still on track. I'd heard nightmare stories from other brides about their florists, caterers and others bombarding them with questions in the last week before the wedding. After I looked at the arrangement three months before the wedding, we were set! I provided all the final numbers two weeks before the wedding and they had all the information they needed. They made everything SOOOOO easy. Then, the best part, the flowers were stunning!!! My bouquet was spectacular and the centerpieces were some of the coolest arrangements I've ever, ever seen. The room looked amazing. I couldn't have asked for more! Definitely use Dilly Lily you need a florist in Chicago! More...

Dilly Lilly did the personal flowers for my wedding and I can't imagine having gone with any other florist! They made me feel like they truly wanted and appreciated my business! Their designers were super excited about my concept even though I had a small order. And their staff called me by name whenever I went into the shop. Great customer service! My bouquet was so original and vibrant. I carried it the whole day and took it out to a club after my reception! It still looked fabulous days later even after surviving a packed club dance floor!

I've never been to the shop, nor have I had the pleasure of seeing any of their bouquets in person.  However, I am qualified to write this review because I've worked with the staff via phone and email to get a weekly delivery of flowers from my boss in Minneapolis to her friend who has stage 4 cancer in Chicago.  When the idea to send this weekly flower order originated, I knew I had a lot of options for vendors.  Using Yelp and local area florist websites as my guide, Dilly Lily seemed like the obvious choice for this sensitive situation.  Naturally, I was nervous to use a shop I'd never stepped foot in to order flowers I'd never see or hear about, so I was diligent in asking a lot of questions when I placed my initial call to them.  The staff was friendly and helpful with each question.Each week , a staff member would email me a description of what they were sending to my boss's friend that week including an attached receipt.  There were times when deliveries were difficult to execute (of no fault to Dilly Lily), but they persevered and always followed up with me if the recipient was unreachable.Thank you, Dilly Lily!  Your services have been impressive.  You've made me look like a rock star to my boss, and my boss looks like a rock star to her friend.  I would recommend you to anyone.

I was a little worried when I asked Dilly Lily for a quote because I'd read somewhere that their services were overpriced. I don't know who wrote those previous reviews, but they couldn't have been more wrong!!! I came in with my firm budget, and we created an amazing look for my wedding. I had NINE bridesmaids, and was worried I wouldn't be able to afford bouquets. So Dilly Lily's amazing team and I decided to have the bridesmaids each carry a gorgeous, gigantic long stemmed rose down the aisle. They dethorned the roses and added ribbons to make them look even more stunning. My bouquet was perfect, exactly how I'd envisioned it. They even did our centerpieces, with reflexed orchids in vases of water. The results were breathtaking. Our budget allowed room for Dilly Lily to do the set-up and delivery themselves, and they were at the church and hotel with plenty of time to spare on my big day. I think the world of this vendor!

Thank you Dilly Lily, for being one of my favorite parts of my wedding day. Everything they delivered for my wedding ceremony and reception was PERFECT and completely gorgeous! The flowers were exactly what I wanted, beautiful, and lasted a long time after the wedding. I wish I could carry my bouquet everyday. Everyone I worked with was a delight and they captured my edgy/contemporary/formal/black&white theme perfectly. I even got to keep the candles and small vases at the end. I don't have one bad thing to say about Dilly Lily! More...

Amazingly Beautiful!That's the only way I can describe the flowers from Dilly Lily.  I was the lucky recipient of a beautiful vase-full of flowers, so I am not actually reviewing anything but the delivery service and the actual flowers.  I know nothing of the price or customer service...There was a note on the flowers asking to be delivered before 3:30pm-which they were- and the delivery man was very plesant as well!The flowers themselves are in a huge square glass vase which is completely full of beautifully arranged flowers of all varieties.  There are no cheap fillers or wilting flowers, every single flower is perfectly placed and absolutely beautiful!  I don't think I've ever received a more beautiful arrangement!

We visited Dilly Lily's store twice in preparation of our wedding. It is a lovely place in a lovely neighborhood. I picked this company, as I felt the bright, contemporary style of the store fit my style, and the people were very pleasant and vibrant. The proposals were reworked many times to get to what I wanted, including a comfortable price.All of the flowers were at the reception venue before we arrived and completely set up. I loved all of the colors used. However, some types of flowers that were not only specifically discussed but also written into the proposal were not to be found. For instance, celosia and billy balls. In addition, at the last meeting, I had specifically insisted that they use the big, rose-colored roses that were displayed in our mock-ups, but they also were not there. Instead, we found odd, out-of-season types like sunflowers and tulips.I will say that I was quite happy with my bouquet and that of my matron-of-honor. The willows looked great and everything was big, bright and tight. Although, more dahlias would have been appreciated, since I had clearly made a fuss over them in our prior meetings.In the end, I was about 85% happy with the services provided. If the price were 25% lower, then I would have been 100% happy. More...

Customer service alone makes Dilly Lily the shop to work with! Rebecca really took the time to make sure that I was happy with all choices made for my October 11,2008 wedding. I had a very specific feel that I wanted to create for the day and it felt like Rebecca was able to take a field trip into my head and capture exactly what I had dreamed up. She nailed it! On top of it all I felt like I was working with a friend rather than someone I had only just met. She really seems to love what she does and it shows.The Bouquets were beautiful (there are pictures uploaded on my profile if you'd like to see them) and the flowers evoked such a romantic and vintage feeling (exactly what I asked for).The only drawback was the price, I felt like there would be a few more flowers for what we paid but overall I don't feel that I would have been as happy working with any other shop.As a side note, a few weeks before the wedding my boss called me frantic because he had forgotten to send his favorite niece something for her birthday. It was that day and well past the time that most flower shops send out their deliveries. I immediately called Rebecca and asked her if she could help me out (the shop is in the neighborhood where his niece lives). They went above and beyond that day by putting together a beautiful arrangement for me at the last minute and walking over to hand deliver it to my bosses niece. I will be be a repeat customer for many years to come and have and will recommend them to anyone looking for flowers whether it be for a wedding, a gift or everyday flowers to brighten your life.Thanks Dilly Lily!

I can't even begin to tell you how amazing and wonderful Dilly Lily is! Hands-down, their entire staff is the BEST around. Dilly Lily recently designed the flowers for my wedding in downtown Chicago... and I was completely blown away with their phenomenal work... from my gorgeous bouquet to the most intriguing and unique centerpieces I have ever seen! To this day, I can't stop thinking and talking about their work - nor can all those who attended our wedding! They truly out-did themselves and made my wedding day more than I could have ever imagined. Dilly Lily was so helpful during the entire planning process - they listened, consulted, and supported the many ideas I had for "artistic and design-oriented" centerpieces - I told them a few colors and thoughts I had and they ran with it...  the final product was worthy of the highest praise! I really can't say enough wonderful things about the work and expertise Dilly Lily puts into everything they do. I will jump at the opportunity to recommend them to anyone looking for anything and everything floral-related! More...

My dilemma: wife loves flowers but completely knows her stuff - Jewel, Trader Joes, or other flower-gram crap is ok for spur-of-the-moment but isn't special. Living in the Western Suburbs for over 12 years, I've not found anything that can provide something special.I walked into Dilly Lilly  yesterday to grab something extra for my wife's birthday. They put together an arrangement in about 10 minutes that my wife says is the best she's ever gotten - high praise from someone who knows her flowers - years ago she worked at Adelaide's, a seriously high-end and fantastic florist in La Jolla.  Lincoln Park isn't a good location for me but they deliver to the suburbs. After this experience, I'll call them and be comfortable that they'll deliver something great. More...

Very colorful and ornate arrangements that make good use of colors and space.  Flowers are in full bloom.  Excellent fillers (NOT the standard dull ferns and baby's breath).  Worth the money: they seem to take pride in their arrangements, and it shows.  I have only called orders in.  I always make vague orders of roses and sometimes specify preferred colors.  I uploaded pictures of two deliveries to Yelp.  They use nonstandard fillers which make the flowers pop from the rest of the arrangement.

I used Dilly lily for my bridal party flowers and they did a fabulous job.  The colors were great,  just what I wanted,  Rebecca spent a lot of time with me discussing what type of look I was going for and made suggestions for reasonably priced flowers to accomplish that look.  .  They also did a sample bouquet of my wedding flowers,  since I did not want surprises on my wedding day,  that was a huge plus.  The sample was not quite what I had in mind,  but we quickly worked out an alternative.  I was very pleased with the flowers for all of my bridal party,    Rebecca was very responsive to emails,  overall great experience,  great service,   and I would recommend them to others.  I would have given 5 stars except for a few things:  .flowers seemed to wilt fast ( however it was a hot day)  and they are a little pricey.

Dilly Lily did my wedding flowers. I'm not at all a flowers type of girl, and I HATE roses and think they're totally cheesy, so I was looking for a place that could do something a little more quirky and modern than your run of the mill bouquet and centerpiece. We worked with Rebecca, who was super receptive to our ideas and even ran with our "hey can we put plastic dogs in the vases with the flowers" idea, and let me tell you, they TOTALLY delivered with our flowers. They were even more beautiful than I imagined, and the guys' flowers were cool enough that they all commented on how exotic and nice they were. Our altar pieces were really great, and our centerpieces were just as promised at our trial. Overall, they were great to deal with and were super responsive to e-mails and other inquiries during the process. The only issues I can think of are that delivery of personal flowers was a little late due to heavy parade traffic in the city (so I don't really think it was their fault), and there were some issues with lost checks and then replacement checks, etc., that wasn't really that big of a deal. Overall, if you're into a more quirky or non-traditional look for your flowers, I totally recommend them. I'm sure they do great traditional looks as well, but why waste their great ideas with traditional flowers? More...

Our bridal party flowers were absolutely gorgeous. I received so many compliments on them, but I can't take the credit for them. I chose the colors, but Dilly Lily deserves all the credit for the choice of the beautiful flowers and the amazing designs. The prices were fair and the service was outstanding. They quickly offered a refund of the set-up fee when our reception catering manager offered to set up all of the flowers at the reception tables. It was a joy to work with everyone on the Dilly Lily team. I'd highly recommend them! More...

I needed a pink bouquet of flowers for an engagement party today.  Dilly Lily came through with an amazing bouquet and the staff was extremely friendly.

I've never ordered flowers to be delivered to someone before, let alone to see if they could be delivered the same day I ordered them. But the ladies at Dilly Lily couldn't have been more helpful and friendly. Not only did they help me pick out the perfect bocquet for my girlfriend, but they were also able to deliver the flowers to her job in less than an hour. In fact, I was on the phone with my girlfriend when the delivery man walked in with the flowers, and to hear the excitement in her voice was worth every penny. There's no doubt that I'll use Dily Lilly again, hopefully for my wedding someday. More...

I have to give the beautiful flowers my boyfriend bought me from Dilly Lily 5 stars.  It was a great bouquet - Great colors, so fresh and of course very pretty.  It sounds like the people there are very helpful as well because I'm sure he couldn't have picked out such a fabulous bouquet himself.  I do love him, but let's be honest, he is a guy and therefore doesn't know much about flowers!

5 stars, well deserved. Dilly Lily is an adorable floral boutique in Lincoln Park, with much more than flowers. They stock adorable cards, amazing candles, and holiday nick nacks. Next time I order flowers, I will definitely be going here. There are also vases all over the place, so you can be sure to make your arrangement extra unique. I called the store as well as went in for a wreath I saw in the shop's window- the service is impeccable. Their employees are so nice and helpful. I hope to be using their floral services in the future! More...

Dilly Lily has always come through with exactly what I wanted when ordering flowers (usually using vague terms like: funky, springy, not the usual, bright etc).  The store is cute with lots of nice greeting cards and an assortment of flowers to pick and choose if you just want something to take with you right then.  The only reason I give it four stars is that it is expensive.  Although it is usually, almost always worth it.  Plus, they have a lot of flowers around year round, so you'll pay for the fact that they aren't in season in the midwest (or they don't grow in the Midwest at all).

Not always the most convenient for parking, but definitely worth the trip, Dilly Lily is one of the best flower shops in the city.  They have everything you could ever want to spruce up your home for the visiting friends or family and the perfect hostess gifts.  They also have cool gifts and local artists designs in jewelry and crafty stuff.
