We were so happy with the flowers we received from FlowersFlowers for our wedding this past March! I felt like I had no idea going into the process, but Joanne was super helpful and she was able to help me pinpoint exactly what I wanted. The bouquets and corsages we received were even more beautiful than I could have imagined! Everything arrived easily on time and the flowers kept looking fresh all day despite the cold and windy weather. Choose FlowersFlowers- you will not be disappointed! More...

It was such a pleasure to work with Joanne at FlowersFlowers for our wedding in June 2019. During our initial consultation, I described in vague terms the bouquet I was imagining, and Joanne immediately put together a gorgeous demonstration bouquet with the flowers that were available in her store that day. She described what similar flowers would go nicely together as well as the greenery that would be available later in the year. I was truly blown away by her ability to take my vague ideas and turn them into reality. Our bouquets were delivered to my home on the morning of our wedding, and they were absolutely perfect (as were the boutonnieres for my husband and his best man). I am so grateful to have chosen Joanne to create the flowers for our wedding, and it was a real pleasure to work with someone with her sense of professionalism and commitment to her customers. THANK YOU! More...

Our wedding florist, Joanne Leiman from FlowersFlowers in Evanston, was absolutely wonderful! I could not have imagined more perfect bouquets and flower arrangements! Joanne has exquisite taste which translates into all her floral designs. She listened to us and made our vision come to life! My husband and I are so grateful to Joanne and her team. Highly recommend!! More...

Joanne and FlowersFlowers were wonderful to work with for our May wedding! On the day, everything was amazing - Joanne came bright and early, she set up the place card table greenery so beautifully, brought a few options of flowers for my hair, and the centerpieces were outstanding. My bridal bouquet, the corsages and boutineers - absolutely stunning! Joanne was so wonderful to work with - responsive, attentive and artistic! Thank you Joanne! More...

Beautiful flowers and extremely friendly! We needed a last minute corsage for prom. They had a beautiful selection of premade corsages for the last minute folks. We couldn't have found a better arrangement if we picked the flowers ourselves! I did see a bouquet arrangement that the florist was finishing up and it was devine! More...

I couldn't have been happier working with FlowersFlowers for my wedding! Joanne was so wonderful from start to finish. She listened to what I wanted, made recommendations about what flowers would be best in October, and designed the most gorgeous bouquet for me and table centerpiece. When we decided very last minute that we wanted a couple extra vases of flowers, Joanne and her team quickly put together the additional arrangements and they were perfect! I highly recommend FlowersFlowers for your events! More...

Words cannot describe how pleased we were with the floral designs that Joanne @ Flowers, Flowers in Evanston created for our son & daughter-in-law’s wedding in August. Working on very short notice, Joanne created wedding bouquets for the bridal party that were timeless & modern, composed & fluid, elegant & yet perfect for the outdoor, fun & funky wedding. The bride wanted a vibrant, loose arrangement of seasonal flowers and Joanne’s creation honored her vision perfectly. For the bridesmaids, Joanne made simple baby’s breath bouquets that were loose looking & lovely. They gave the appearance that each attendant had just picked a large handful of flowers from the field but, our course, the bouquets were all really perfectly composed, in scale and lasted the whole evening. Joanne also handled the florals for the informal rehearsal dinner which flowers we repurposed for the morning-after brunch. These were in 18 mismatched bottle vases and included the most lovely, elegant & whimsical summer flowers. They were perfect and lasted the weekend (and beyond!). I wholeheartedly recommend Flowers, Flowers. Joanne is a pleasure to work with, her florals are superb, and she honored our budget – what could be better? More...

Joanne at FlowersFlowers is a dream to work with! I went in a couple of days before my intimate wedding, pretty overwhelmed, and walked out feeling at ease and confident that my flowers and bouquet would turn out spectacular. I didn't have any photos with me to share with her, just a description of what I wanted and what color pallette I was looking at, and Joanne arranged the most beautiful bouquet from my short description. You can see how much love and care go into not only her arrangements, but her clients. She quickly wrote me up a detailed quote that was so reasonable and was able to work with my time schedule. I will recommend everyone use FlowersFlowers for their special occasion. More...

Throughout my entire wedding planning process, Joanne at Flowers-Flowers had, by far, the best customer service. She was beyond pleasant throughout the entire process. Joanne worked with my budget (without making me feel bad about it). Most florists would not even consider my budget. She scheduled in person meetings and never made me feel bad when I made numerous decision changes. Most of her work on the day was perfect. I loved my centerpieces, bridesmaid bouquets, and church flowers. Two small imperfects were my cocktail hour flowers (greens were to be cascaded around the base of the cocktail hour tables, but rather were bunched on one side) and a bit droopy flowers in my bouquet (minor and cannot be seen in pictures). Overall, I would highly recommend Joanne at Flowers-Flowers and would work with them again! More...

My wedding flowers designed by Joanne at Flowers Flowers were absolutely beautiful. Joanne listened to what my fiancée and I envisioned for our September wedding, and most importantly gave us options to fit our budget. Working with Joanne was easy and worry free, she is professional, straightforward and very responsive to email and phone calls. The flowers were fresh and smelled great. They were exactly what I expecting from our consultation, just gorgeous. More...

I absolutely loved working with Joanne at Flowers Flowers for the flowers for my wedding in June 2018 at the Woman's Club of Evanston! Before agreeing to work with them, we sat down and talked with me about what I would need, she looked at some of the pictures I had found regarding what I liked, and quickly put together and emailed me a proposal that was very detailed, outlining what we had discussed, and a quoted price for everything. She was quick to reply to any question, and was always so friendly. . On the day, I was SO happy with the arrangements she put together, and absolutely took my ideas and made them so much better! They were so beautiful. For the centerpieces, I provided some of the decoration and they only were supplying the greenery, but they went above and beyond by offering to put the centerpieces together on each table. The best part was that they were very accommodating, easy to work with, and I felt so comfortable with showing them pictures or explaining my ideas, and allowing them to use their expertise and do what they thought looked best! Overall a GREAT experience! More...

I needed a flower bouquet to surprise my girlfriend with, and thought I'd give FlowersFlowers a try based on previous reviews. When I walked in, Michelle greeted me at the door and said she was happy to help. She asked me about my girlfriend's personality, and created a beautiful arrangement just for her. Between the quality of the arrangement, and the expertise and friendliness of Michelle, I couldn't be happier. Highly recommended. More...

I loved working with Joanne to provide the flowers for our August wedding in Chicago. I provided her a few scattered inspiration photos and she really ran with it to create a gorgeous arrangements for bouquets, boutonnieres and our centerpieces. She was super responsive and communicative and I found her cost very reasonable in comparison to the many other florists we worked with. More...

FlowersFlowers was AMAZING!! I contacted them about a month in a half before my spring wedding. My flowers were so beautiful and just like I wanted. Joanne was extremely professional, welcoming, and nice. I never had to call to double check anything or correct her. She was on top of everything from the moment I walked into the shop. I can’t express what a relief that is during planning a wedding. Joanne personally delivered the flowers to my hotel room and they were more beautiful in person then in pictures. I would absolutely recommend FlowersFlowers to anyone with floral needs. I will definitely be using FlowersFlowers again in the future! More...

The flowers are absolutely gorgeous! Joanne is attentive and easy to work with. I had a lot of requests regarding the details of the decoration, but Joanne was always very patient.We had a little difficulty regarding the delivery of the flowers. We realized that I will be doing photo shooting outside the venue when the flowers will be delivered, so I asked my limo driver to pick up the flowers. Joanne secured the flowers during the ride and even decorated our limo.  When we returned to the venue, the decoration looked amazing and received so many compliments from guests. Thanks for making my wedding beautiful! More...

I can't say enough about working with Joanne. I used her for my September 2017 wedding flowers and was absolutely blown away by her design. Throughout the planning process she was so easy to work with. She listened to all of my requests and concerns and offered solutions and assured me it was going to look great. She was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend her a million times over. I'm hope to have an occasion in the very near future to order from her again! More...

I feel like I'm a flower "snob" and send arrangements quite often!  I am "stunned" by their creativity and I'm never disappointed - I'm confident you won't be either! Even better, they will send you a picture of the arrangement before it leaves the shop just to make sure you're happy! More...

FlowersFlowers is an exceptional shop because of Joanne and her staff. They are friendly, knowledgeable and extremely creative and talented in what they do. They are able to work creatively in a way that also fits your own individual style. They make sure that they understand exactly what you want and that you are pleased with whatever they do. They designed, delivered and installed silk flowers (a requirement of our venue) for my daughters wedding. Everything was beautiful in design and flawless in arrangement - breathtaking actually! We can't thank them enough for making this "the most perfect wedding." (quote from my daughter) More...

We used FlowersFlowers for our wedding, and our experience was fantastic from start to finish. Joanne was always friendly and professional. From our first meeting, she was dedicated to providing us with the highest quality of service. She offered suggestions on different flowers within our color scheme, showed us examples of everything we were considering, and was dedicated to making sure we had a beautiful wedding. She even offered creative suggestions to try keep us within our budget while keeping our vision in mind. Leading up to the big day, we had some plan changes and some bumps with other vendors, but Joanne was more than willing to accommodate and work with us to minimize our stress and make sure everything worked out with our flowers. The day of our wedding, we were blown away by just how beautiful all of the flowers were! Everything - the centerpieces, aisle decor, bouquets, etc. - came out perfect and was better than we imagined! We cannot recommend FlowersFlowers enough!! More...

The flower arrangements from FlowersFlowers brought so much joy to our wedding. All of us including guests really loved their beautiful flowers. I wanted to use seasonal flowers and more colors for the wedding. For my bouquet and centerpieces on guest tables, I liked the idea of incorporating the colors of bridesmaids' dresses (shades of purple) with pops of bright color. The flower arrangements turned out much much more beautiful than I pictured. They were elegant and fun! Not only does she have an eye for wonderful flower arrangements, it was a great experience to work with Joanne. She was always friendly to help and work with us (Mostly my Mother-In-Law since we live out of state) whenever we needed. She listened to our needs/ideas and accommodated the changes. FlowersFlowers is a gem in the neighborhood and the shop represents their character - modest but full of surprises! More...

Joanne and Flowers Flowers were recommended to us by our wedding caterer, who had worked with her in the past. We are so thrilled that we took his advance and chose Joanne as our wedding florist. From our first phone call, she was warm and accommodating. I was worried she would laugh at me when I told her our floral budget - but she used her creativity to come up with beautiful flowers that were very reasonably priced. She took into account the look and feel of our venue, and created arrangements that made the room come alive and filled the space with color, even though we did not have the budget for multiple large arrangements. She was always very responsive and easy to work with, and truly went above and beyond. When early warm weather meant our main flower choice (forsythia) might not be available, she called around and special-ordered unbloomed branches from Wisconsin that she bloomed specially for us the week of our wedding - and they looked gorgeous! She also fought with Memorial Day parade traffic to make sure we had our personal flowers delivered to our hotel in downtown Chicago early in the day, and still came to our venue later that night to assist the caterer with a room flip and to set up the arrangements herself. The level of personal service was exceptional. Multiple friends and family commented on how beautiful and unusual my bouquet was, and she nailed the exact look I was hoping for based on just a few photos I shared. From start to finish, Joanne was creative, pragmatic, kind, and a pleasure to work with. We would highly recommend her for any floral needs! More...

I've come to FlowersFlowers for various occasions (Valentine's Day, anniversary, spontaneous) numerous times over the past 3 years, and I have always been happy with their flowers.  Usually, I just give a price and maybe a suggestion for some flower color/type and then they make a great arrangement.  The flowers look great and they usually last about a week with minimal care.  Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

Working with FlowersFlowers was one of the easiest parts of the wedding planning process. They have a large variety of options, reasonable prices, beyond-excellent service, and impressive creativity and talent. I chose them as our florist because they had done a fantastic job in an earlier wedding where I was a bridesmaid. The bouquets and centerpieces for that wedding were stunning, and they held up very well throughout the whole day and for several days after. Joanne is very knowledgeable and has a great eye for creating beautiful arrangements. She patiently worked with me to figure out which colors, shapes, and types of flowers I liked, and then she suggested additional elements to make it all work together. I met with her one time, and then she emailed me a detailed proposal with images of the flowers we had discussed. She provided a range of options to fit our budget, and she had great suggestions on how to reuse different arrangements throughout the day to keep costs reasonable.She delivered the flowers to the church and our home herself on the big day, and made sure everything looked perfect. The arrangements were better than I could have imagined, and her creativity and design sense made my few ideas and Pinterest pins all work cohesively. The bouquets held up all day (in 95 degree heat for outside pictures!), and the two church arrangements she provided were beautiful and eye-catching enough to serve as all the decoration we needed for the whole space! Flowers Flowers was a pleasure to work with, and I would recommend them to anyone. More...

I ended up being more picky than I thought about my wedding day flowers - I think I met with 4-5 florists before going to Joanne and Michelle at FlowersFlowers. I should have gone there first! By the time I met with them I knew more specifically what flowers I loved and which ones I did not want in my bouquets and Joanne was on the exact same page as me. I found at other shops that the florists didn't understand why I didn't want a typical white bouquet or to have all roses. FlowersFlowers was exactly what I wanted - not the standard, typical arrangements you see at every wedding. The flowers were gorgeous - I was blown away when I got to see them in person on our wedding day. Joanne even sent me a preview pic of the flowers once they arrived at the shop a few days before and that made me so excited to see everything come together. My husband and I got to peek in our reception room prior to all the guests entering and everything as amazing - all the arrangements were awesome (we did either a small grouping of 3 or 1 larger arrangement per table) and the flowers really tied everything together. I admittedly splurged within my budget on flowers, but I am so thankful I did. I have absolutely no regrets. And - to top it all off - we had told our guests to feel free to take an arrangement home with them at the end of the night since we were leaving right away for our honeymoon. We planned to take what was left over to a nursing home to donate. When we came to pick up the remainder of our arrangements on Sunday, 99% of the arrangements were gone! I guess our guests loved the flowers too :) Thank you SO much Joanne and Michelle! You did an amazing job and you are now my first stop for any flowers I need in the future. More...

Although I have never had the pleasure of speaking directly with Joanne, I have seen the results of her work and I am more than impressed. Joanne supplied the flowers for my wedding and did a wonderful job at that -- my wife was practically begging me to write this review as a thank you.FlowersFlowers accommodated all of our requests and followed my wife's instructions to a T. The end result was amazing, of course. My personal favorite part of her work for our wedding was the flower arch that sat behind our altar. It was breathtaking. I will be posting a picture of the arch in addition to this review; it deserves to be seen by a wider audience. More...

I can't say enough good things about FlowersFlowers. I first became familiar with this incredible flower shop as a student at NU; every arrangement I ever received from them was unique and exactly how I wanted it. For day-to-day flowers:As a student, I ordered several arrangements for family members from Joanne, and everyone was always blown away. I loved being able to come home for holidays with beautiful, unique floral arrangements for my mom and other family members and have them be so excited to point out all the unique and unusual flowers and details put into each arrangement. Since, I started going to FlowersFlowers, my other family members also started going to Joanne for holidays and all their flower needs, and we have never been disappointed. Every holiday and special occasion is always anticipated with a beautiful FlowersFlowers arrangement and excitement over seeing Joanne's latest creation!  For weddings:When I became engaged, I followed them on Facebook, saw their wedding arrangements were just as incredible as my holiday bouquets had been, and the rest is history. Joanne is so easy to work with. I had so many special requests and she not only accommodated all of them, but she executed every single piece EXACTLY how I imagined it to be. From a custom wedding arch to a corsage for my puppy, she did it all, and she did it all perfectly. I gave her my wedding invitation as the inspiration for the arrangements and it was incredible how she brought the stationary to life with flowers. The colors, the style, everything was perfect. They really were the most spectacular part of the wedding, and they made my day so much more special and unique to my taste and style. Her use of flowers is amazing; she's a walking encyclopedia when it comes to flowers. She uses so many different types of flowers that I've never seen nor heard of and she knows the perfect time and place to incorporate just the right flower. I'm her #1 stalker on Facebook, liking every single photo she posts of her floral designs; if I had the bandwidth, I'd probably apply to be her apprentice. THANK YOU, JOANNE!!! More...

We could not have been happier with the flowers provided by Joanne of FlowersFlowers for our wedding!!! From the beginning, I really felt Joanne listened to my ideas and vision, providing visuals and suggestions, which I appreciate given she is the expert! The bouquets, boutonnieres, altar arrangements, centerpieces and more were exactly what we had wanted and really contributed to pulling off the wedding of our dreams. Joanne was an absolute pleasure to work with and her work is beyond compare. She is at the mid-range in pricing but her work is top-notch and comes off as high-end as it comes. I highly recommend FlowersFlowers for your wedding but also for any other event where you want your flowers to really make a statement and to complete your vision :) More...

The flowers for our wedding were absolutely gorgeous, the corsages, the boutonnières, my bouquet and the vases of flowers. Several of the guests asked who did the flowers and when I told them it was FlowersFlowers, without exception, everyone said, "FlowersFlowers? My favorite florist!" When it comes to quality, creativity, and service, I think that says it all. Thank you so much for helping me to create exactly the garden party effect I wanted for my wedding day. You are now MY favorite florist!

I wanted to say that your flowers were a hit at the party. They were the most prominent and mood setting feature of the evening and i couldn't have asked for a better display! Everyone noticed and commented on them; even our guest speaker during her speech pointed them out to the audience and said, "look at how beautiful these flowers are!" The colors were perfect and created that"pop" of pink I was looking for. They were in sync with the grandness of the Ballroom at the Palmer House, being just the right size, and the colors flowed with the room. I loved the silver vases, Absolutely gorgeous! We distributed the flowers to family members and friends at the end, they put a smile on everyone who saw or touched them! Thanks again for your prompt and complete service. Your team was friendly, patient, and gave their all down to the details of the set-up! I will definitely refer Flowers Flowers to all my friends and family! More...

Joanne and FlowersFlowers were a DREAM to work with for our wedding!  My now husband and I met with 5 florists, and only Joanne immediately "got" our vision.  Our meeting was probably the quickest with her but we felt the most confident when we walked away that she really knew what we wanted for our day.Not only did she "get" our vision, but she executed impeccably!  My bouquet literally brought me to tears. We even asked for a petal design for the floor of our ceremony, and that was done beautifully!  The centerpieces were absolutely gorgeous and exactly what we hoped for.  Our wedding was in Evanston, but we got ready in the city, the wedding party flower delivery to the city was totally smooth.  I would not hesitate for a moment to recommend FlowersFlowers!

I'm late to the party here, but I ordered flowers for my other mom's birthday back in June through the website (because i kind of forgot that her birthday was two days away).  I used their website to list my price range for a gift, and they sent her a lovely orchid for her office.  She loves it!  I was able to do everything fairly easily and painlessly without having to go to the store.  I haven't been in, but the next time i need to pick up a special arrangement, I'll be stopping by this store.  Thanks FlowersFlowers!

Working with Joanne is great. She provided us with creative ways to realize our vision while working within a budget. I was pretty set on what I wanted as far as flowers, and Joanne definitely got it. I wanted a romantic, vintage garden look, so I brought in a lot of pictures to show her and she was happy to look through them with me. She offers great insight on the best options for you based on your budget, venue, aesthetic, and any number of other factors. I wanted to keep it simple and I am so happy with how everything looked! My bouquet was EXACTLY what I had envisioned, and so was everything really. I think that comes back to the fact that communication is good. She was easy to communicate with via email, and always responded very quickly to any questions. Your wedding day is hectic, but this is one decision you won't have to stress over. I am so glad I chose Flowers Flowers, I didn't have to worry about anything. Setup was beautiful, and everything was delivered on time. I even have a very cute picture of her helping our little ring bearer put his boutonniere on. So worth it, I would highly recommend using this vendor. More...

On our wedding day, everyone was blown away by how full and beautiful the bouquets were! She was also very fun and easy to work with and offered different options to fit out budget. I would absolutely recommend using Joanne from Flowers Flowers for any special occasion!! More...

When choosing a florist for my daughter's wedding, we knew we were in good hands when we frist met Joanne and Michelle at the shop where we were surrounded by high quality flowers and greens. We described our vintage venue and showed Joanne pictures of arrangements similar to what we wanted. I had no doubt that she would create lush centerpieces and lovely, delicate bouquets which she did. I was surprised by her interpretation of the bride's floral crown. We hadn't given Joanne many specifics as we had done for the centerpieces; she created a sturdy but delicate looking headpiece that was absolutely stunning. Thank you, Joanne! More...

My daughter and I visited two other florists prior to Flowers Flowers and the others tried to steer us towards what "they wanted" rather than what my daughter wanted! In fact, both suggested we look elsewhere for flowers as our "style" and color palette, did not match theirs. We were so happy to find Joanne and Flowers-Flowers. Joanne listened to what my daughter wanted and didn't try to persuade her otherwise. On the day of the wedding, when my daughter saw her red rose bridal bouquet with little pearl droplets, she thought it was the most beautiful thing she had ever seen! Our table arrangements were also stunning and all the flowers were of the highest quality. Joanne was easy to work with and was able to work within my budget to provide beautiful wedding flowers.

I don't know anything about flowers, so I just stopped by the shop one day to get ideas for what we would want for our wedding and what it might cost -- a friend and I were still half-planning at that point to get grocery store flowers and do the arrangements ourselves (HA!). In the end, I'm so glad we ended up booking with FlowersFlowers! Joanne was amazingly helpful in figuring out what would work best for our large wedding party and limited budget -- we had a $1,000 budget, and I think our final bill was $1,003. We still did DIY centerpieces and had to pick up those flowers the day before, but they delivered the wedding bouquets, boutonnieres, and other flowers on the afternoon of the wedding, and everything was fresh and perfect.

I was a very indecisive bride, but after meeting Joanne, I knew that the flowers were going to be perfect...and they were!! Everybody raved about how beautiful our bouquets were. Joanne and her company are very sweet, professional, affordable, passionate, and creative, and they know how to design gorgeous wedding flowers!! Best decision we made for our wedding was booking Joanne from Flowers Flowers! Thank you again!! :) More...

I chose FlowersFlowers for my wedding based on the excellent reviews on yelp, after having started with a different florist, who was not helpful at all. When I first met with Joanne, I was very impressed by the beauty and cleanliness of her store. But I was worried that the upgrade in professional demeanor and quality of her store would mean she would not want to work with my fairly inexpensive wedding. I did not need any flowers for the church, wanted a simple bouquet, and just a few lillies on each table at the reception. I was worried that Joanne would balk at the simplicity, or treat me as a less important customer.

However, she was wonderful throughout the entire process. First, I loved that she used her ipad to show me examples of other weddings she had done, so we could make sure we had the same vision. By the time I got home, she had emailed me a quote, again with photos included. As I changed my mind a few times (change of number of ushers, realizing my mother didnt' like the flowers I'd chosen for her wrist corsage, etc.), Joanne remained professional, friendly, and helpful. She always responded very quickly and never did anything to blind-side me. She was definitely one of the easiest vendors to work with.

Obviously, the proof was the day of the wedding. I was overwhelmed with how beautiful the flowers were. I thought they'd be nice, but I didn't expect them to be stunning, which they were. My bouquet was so lovely I was almost in tears before the wedding even began. The flower children's rose petals' color perfectly matched the orange of my bouquet's lilies. Everything was as simple as I wanted, but still exquisite.

I have no reservations about recommending FlowersFlowers. You will be in good hands.

Joanne at Flowers Flowers did the bouquet and a few statement centerpieces for my wedding, but if I could do it all again, I would ask her to do the whole wedding! Joanne is super sweet and responded quickly to questions and emails. She was also very on top of emailing me if she had any concerns or questions. She met us at the hotel to drop the bouquets off, and then took the arrangements to the reception hall. The flowers were STUNNING.  She and I had looked at inspiration photos and talked colors, and based on these two short conversations, she put together the flowers off my dreams. More...

I had worked with Joanne from Flowers Flowers years ago for small bouquets and event arrangements. She always did an amazing job. My wedding was no different. I showed up to her shop with some random photos and ideas, and somehow she was able to take my jumbled mess of ideas and turn it into a beautiful floral scheme from the wedding party flowers to reception decor. Just take a look at her photos! They are truly beautiful, and she is so easy to work with. More...

Flowers Flowers did all the bouquets and arrangements for my wedding this past June 2012 and I was thrilled with their work. Joanne is fantastic to work with, she was totally open to all of my ideas and was able to create exactly what we wanted within our budget. Her bid came in under the other florists I met with and she was so relaxed and easy to work with. I wanted full lush flowers in light pinks and whites with a soft romantic feel and she nailed it right on the head. She used the most beautiful flowers I have ever seen, they were perfect, exactly what I had envisioned. She used big open dahlias, peonies and garden roses accented with sweet pea and dusty miller. I loved our flowers so much that my husband and I took 4 arrangements and my bouquet up to Wisconsin with us for our Honeymoon so I could spend more time with them:) I would wake up in the morning and stare at them and smell them slowly turning the arrangements around to see all the different flowers. We were so happy with her work I would recommend her in a heartbeat. More...

FlowersFlowers did the ceremony and reception flowers for my wedding. Joanne made great suggestions and was budget conscious. A few months before the wedding, I found a large amount of milk glass vases on Ruffled. I knew that I wanted them for the tables at the reception. Joanne was amazing! She suggested tulips which were in season and looked just perfect in the vintage vases. She arranged them on the tables, but also had a few extras that were placed around the Woman's Club in such tasteful ways. The flowers were easily my favorite part of the day! More...

As a wedding photographer, I see and work with different florists often. Joanne and her staff's work immediately stood out to me. I've always been blown away by all the bouquets and center pieces at each of the weddings FlowersFlowers has done. She has such a strong sense of taste-using color and structure to create breathtaking arrangements. Because I've seen so much of her gorgeous work, I naturally called her when it came time for my own wedding.  She was amazing!  We met a couple times to talk about our plan--she asked the right questions to get a sense of what I was after (arrangements for our outdoor, prairie wedding).  She knew the right flowers to blend with the native flowers where we were getting married, and gave a tip of the hat to my husband's Mexican heritage by incorporating succulents into the boutonnieres. I received so many compliments on the centerpieces and bouquets. My aunt-in-law even dried three of the bouquets for keepsakes. FlowersFlowers makes this part of planning an event stressfree.  Trust me, if you trust her, she won't disappoint. She's so easy to work with and a true artist. More...

Joanne did the personal flowers (bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres) for my May 2013 wedding, and I could not possibly be happier with both the flowers and the experience of working with Joanne and her wonderful assistants at FlowersFlowers. From an aesthetic standpoint, Joanne creates beautiful arrangements and works with only the best quality, always fresh flowers. From a creative standpoint, Joanne is quick to grasp your ideas and add onto them with suggestions of her own. From a business standpoint, everything goes smoothly from the first consultation to the organized and easy-to-read proposal that she puts together. Joanne also did the flowers at my rehearsal dinner, and even though they were small, simple arrangements, they really stood out in the room because they were so gorgeous. I also happen to know that Joanne does excellent non-wedding flowers because I have already started using her shop as my go-to for birthdays and other occasions! More...

When we met in her store to discuss the arrangements, she was just as nice in person and took detailed notes from our conversation. She followed up very promptly with a proposal and checked in with me several times before the wedding. Not being a very organized person myself, I really appreciated that! The cherry on top was when she sent me an e-mail a few days beforehand to tell me that beautiful flowers had arrived in her shop for my wedding and everything was in order. If you could have seen my last-minute checklist, you would know what a relief it was to get an e-mail like that!On the day of, the flowers were even more beautiful than I could have imagined. While I noticed Joanne's personal style (at least in the photos on her site) leans more toward neutral colored bouquets, she totally listened to and carried out my request for brightly colored blooms. Every detail was there as we had discussed, right down to the matching satin ribbons on the bridesmaid's bouquets that perfectly matched their dresses.Joanne was also understanding of my budget and very willing to make changes to accomodate it. I highly recommend her to other brides. More...

I met with 4 different florists before I found FlowersFlowers. Once I did meet Joanne at FlowersFlowers, there was no doubt in my mind I had found our florist! I would recommend FlowersFlowers to ANYONE and EVERYONE. Joanne was so pleasant and helpful through the entire planning process. She is so creative and immediately saw my vision for our wedding. On our wedding day, the flowers were PERFECT. They were so fresh, fragrant and BEAUTIFUL. We rented other items from Joanne, and her and her team did a great job putting the whole room together for our reception. It literally took my breath away! More...

Working with Joanne of Flowers Flowers was a delight. I had dreamy ideas and thoughts of what I wanted my flowers to be, but no clear, discernable theme. I didn't know exactly how I wanted the colors, textures and flower types to interact. I wasn't even sure going in how many flowers I would need when it came to the reception venue. Joanne managed to make a clear floral theme out of my jumbled mix of ideas and deliver a floral package that was better than any of my expectations. She was so easy to work with. She was timely, kept me on track and helped me choose the right vases and amount of flowers needed for everything. She hit the mark. I am so pleased with her work, and FlowersFlowers is the top florist on my list to recommend to anyone for any floral needs. More...

I have purchased Mother's Day and birthday flower arrangements for my mother for years from Flowers, Flowers because of their out of the ordinary flowers and beautiful arrangements. Flowers, Flowers was the natural choice for my wedding. I explained that I would have a Victorian wedding motif. During Victorian times, flowers were chosen for their special meaning. Joanne hopped on board and provided a great list of flowers and their meanings. She took my requests and created arrangements that looked like something from a vintage botanical print. They were truly beautiful! Flowers, Flowers is a great place to work with for any event! More...

If I were to have another wedding (and part of me wants to, because it was so much fun) I would have Joanne handle the flowers again.  Not having had a wedding previously, I cannot compare her services, but can say she excelled in every way that is important to a bride.  She's definitely a low-stress/high performing member of the wedding team.  Joanne herself is a sweet pea and a good listener.  She treated our wedding like the special celebration it was - emailing me the day she placed the flower order because she was excited about it (me too! ).  She also contacted me when one of the types I'd liked turned out to be sparsely available and generally not looking up to snuff.  I was absolutely fine with leaving it out, and appreciated the upfront communication.  Our meetings were in Joanne's sweet little shop where she can gather up samples of her stock to show you the ideas you discuss.  Everything she has in stock is fresh and lovely, which is exactly what we got on the big day.  In fact, they were so fresh the centerpieces lasted for weeks.  I gave one to my boss and a few other special colleagues, and they used them for holiday dinner parties - they were that impressive and sturdy.     Since my wedding in December, I've seen more of  Joanne's work on Facebook and am impressed and mildly jealous at the beautiful bouquets she's produced for other brides.  It's clear that she enjoys not only flowers but the spirit of wedding flowers as well.  From consultation to execution, she made me feel like we were in good hands, and the proof was all around us on our wedding day.

We met with many different floral vendors for our fall wedding, and Joanne was by far the friendliest, most professional and most organized of all of them. From our first meeting, it was pretty clear from the start that Joanne wasn't going to push us towards more expensive flowers (as prior vendors had done) - if anything she strived to give us our vision within our budget. A big plus for me was how incredible Joanne was at correspondence -I don't believe she ever took more than a few hours to respond to even the smallest question or email. In particular, I had mentioned to Joanne that I was worried about the color of the hydrangeas we would get (I wanted them more purple than blue but it completely depends on the supply at the time) - and she made it a point to email me on a semi-regular basis to keep me updated on what color hydrangeas she was getting at the time, complete with pictures. That level of initiative and commitment to detail meant the world to me. On the day of, every arrangement was exactly like we had imagined, and the flowers were absolutely beautiful. Everything was delivered on time and Joanne was there to personally pin on our boutonnieres. The flowers stayed fresh and beautiful for weeks afterwards in our apartment. Joanne gave us the perfect wedding flower experience, and I will only choose her for my floral needs in the future. More...

Where do I even begin? Flowers-Flowers in Evanston is AMAZING! The work that Joanne does is superb and ON TOP! I had my bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages designed by them. She goes out of her way to make sure that the flowers on your SPECIAL day is everything and much more than you could ever wish for! I’m not sure what it was that brought me into her shop that day but I still remember how I felt when I walked in. The shop is small but when looking around you could tell that she only carries flowers of QUALITY and carries an ECELECTIC variety (totally my style!). I wouldn’t say I was a bridezilla but I definitely wanted THE best for my day (I mean, it only happens once!) so I wanted to make sure I picked a florist that for one, had the resources to get moss, succulents, and craspedia and two had the patience to work with me on the exact look of the flowers and lastly had the PATIENCE. She had ALL of these things! Some florists aren’t up-to-date with what Brides nowadays want/expect and to be perfectly frank, some flowers look CHEESY and frou-frou and stuck in the 1980s. Joanne from Flowers-Flowers knows her stuff! You can tell she has done her research and has the artistic ability to make certain additions and alterations that are necessary in making the flowers look SUPERB! In my case, she used black & ivory striped ribbons I had provided and incorporated these black pins to hold the ribbons into place. If it were any other florist I would have gotten the mediocre but with Joanne I got the absolute best and it really was a pleasant surprise! For the brides who have an exact image of what they want, bring it in and Joanne will copy the exact image & it won’t be an awkward surprise on your wedding day. I hear of many brides who ask for a MOCK of something and get the complete opposite. It’s fairly simple. If you know what you want, Flowers-Flowers will get you just that. For all of the brides out there, we all know how busy and hectic our lives get once the planning process begins and I was guilty of not always being prompt with my replies but Joanne was persistent and EXTREMELY helpful! She would go out of her way to make sure we were on the same page about the vision of the bouquets and boutonnieres and would double and triple check with me to make sure it was all that I wanted (I’m very indecisive and changed my mind A LOT) lol. I recommend FLOWERS-FLOWERS in Evanston to ANYONE and EVERYONE who want the absolute BEST for their wedding and to those who want a florist that will go out of their way to be helpful, kind, and passionate! Cheers! More...

Alas, my flowering needs were all somber occasions. Deaths and funerals. However it was Yelp reviews that brought me to Flowers Flowers and I had a really good experience. The gal (owner I assume) that helped me was very nice. She's got a great selection of exotics and neat looking greenery. And while I'm sure that she can rock the same ol' rose or carnation things, the fact that what you see first are orchids and funky tropicals appeals to my need for something that doesn't look like everything else. Not terribly pricey either. Especially considering she's in downtown Evanston. So yay. Big yay. And here's hoping next time I need her services it's not because someone died. More...

Joanne designed the flowers for our July 2011 wedding - reception centerpieces, ceremony arrangements, bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, etc. The flowers were absolutely beautiful, and Joanne was fantastic to work with. From our first meeting with Joanne through the wedding day and even after Joanne continues to be my favorite vendor. She worked within our budget and responded quickly to every email and/or call (something that is invaluable when planning a wedding!). I honestly can't say enough great things about the quality of her work and her professionalism. More...

Joanne from Flowers Flowers is amazing! She made the boutonnieres and corsages for our wedding. I was worried that a florist wouldn't be too excited to work with me since I was making non-floral centerpieces and bouquets. On the contrary, Joanne was interested in what I planned on doing and worked with those ideas to create boutonnieres and corsages to coordinate with my designs. She listened to my ideas, gave me her suggestions, and we combined them to come up with some truly beautiful flowers. Her prices were reasonable and she was able to arrange some last minute flowers to give to our parents during our ceremony. I highly recommend her! More...

We used Flowers Flowers for our wedding this past weekend and we couldn't have been happier with the work that Joanne and her crew did! She got us exactly what we had asked for, and kept in touch with us throughout the process to make sure we were all on the same page. She spent the majority of the day at the venue pinning on boutonnieres and making sure that every detail was in place and correct. She put so much work into it and it showed in the end product.I wholeheartedly recommend using Flowers Flowers anytime you need a florist. You will certainly not be disappointed! More...

Joanne is a wonderful person and florist.  I knew nothing about flowers, and after meeting with three other florists, she was the only one who took the time to get to know my taste and help me create the look for our wedding.  She has a true passion for what she does and every arrangement I've seen is just beautiful and unique.  Logistically, she worked within our budget and made sure we still got everything we wanted.  If there was ever a question I had, she responded quickly and was in good communication through-out the entire process.  The day of the event, every bouquet and centerpiece was even better than I had pictured.  She really listened and was very detail orientated, even getting the "more blue than white" hydrangeas... brides can get crazy. She was there early for photos and stayed through flipping the room after the ceremony.I knew that I didn't have to worry about flowers or our Chuppah since Joanne would be there, which was the best thing of all.  I have at least 5 friends who will most likely be getting engaged this year and I will recommend her to all of them.  Thank you again, Joanne!

Joanne was so great to work with and gave us BEAUTIFUL flowers for our New Year’s Eve wedding! I especially appreciated working with her because I planned our Chicago wedding from out of state and we never met in person. It was so nice to coordinate the flowers via email and phone and still feel like I had her full attention and interest in making our flowers special. We were also on a tight budget and she was completely understanding and never pressured us with up-selling or made us feel like our business was less important. Everyone loved the huge lavender rose & hydrangea altar arrangement and I especially loved my perfect lavender & ivory rose bouquet, it was just what I hoped for. She also emailed me the night before the wedding to assure us the flowers were looking great and to update me on the boutonniere designs. I would recommend Flowers Flowers to anyone, and despite being out of town, I hope we have a reason to work with Joanne again someday! More...

Joanne at FlowersFlowers was great to work with. She helped us achieve the vision we were looking for, all within our budget (which was very important). All of the bouquets, boutonnieres, ceremony and reception arrangements turned out beautiful, and I received many compliments on them during the wedding.

Joanne was very helpful when we decided to change a few things around from the original plan, and she followed up with me a few days before our event to let us know when she would be arriving to set up. She helped make my day very stress free.

I would highly recommend FlowersFlowers to anyone!

Working with Joann at Flowers Flowers was great! I loved that she had lots of books and flowers in the shop to show me different ideas when we first sat down for a proposal. She really listened to me and provided me with a very detailed proposal that we continued to update as we worked out more of the details, which ensured nothing got missed. I trusted her to take the very little guidance, photos and ideas that I liked and use her judgment to create something beautiful. She did! All of the flowers were beautiful and exactly what I envisioned. More...

Joanne did the flowers for our 7/24/10 wedding, and they were breathtaking. When I booked Joanne's service, I was in the height of my busy season at work, so we discussed what I wanted over the phone and then she emailed me some pictures. From my vague request of "I want really bright flowers, I want my bouquet to be orange, and I don't want roses", she NAILED it. She gave me a great recommendation for ceremony flowers, and I knew that she was the florist for me.

Throughout the entire planning process, Joanne was always quick to respond to my emails, and she was always friendly. She even followed up several times after the wedding...absolutely incredible. Most of my other vendors wanted nothing to do with me after they were paid in full, but not Joanne! She's fabulous.

Back to my wedding flowers. My flowers were relatively nontraditional, and I hadn't seen pictures of exactly what I wanted or what Joanne and I had decided on. When I saw my bouquet for the first time, I was speechless. It was even better than I had imagined. The bridesmaids bouquets were gorgeous, and the centerpieces were amazing. I have received so many compliments on the flowers, and one of our guests told me that they're using my centerpieces as an inspiration for the flowers for a party that they're planning.

I really cannot say enough good things about FlowersFlowers, and I've already recommended Joanne to several other brides.

We got married at the end of July at the Hilton Orrington and worked with Joanne who put together all of our flowers. After meeting with several other florists in Chicago who gave us very expensive quotes not only for the flowers but also delivery and end-of-the-night pickup, Joanne assured us that she could work within our budget. She came up with three different designs (at three different price tiers) to be placed on various tables through the dinner reception. She also designed beautiful vases filled with water and stem of orchids for the ceremony. And I'm not sure if this is typical for other florists, but we took home most of the containers and vases, including some flowers that the hotel staff was nice enough to save for us. A few of the other flower vendors we received quotes from did not offer for us to keep these items. Joanne was very responsive to our emails and last minute week-of requests. We ended up having a wedding with a mix of various orchids for the bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces, which were all beautiful. Joanne was even able to accommodate our request for labor and material to cover the stage at the hotel that we were using for our ceremony. The only suggestion I would make to other couples is to take a look at the aisle runner before going with the plastic version. We went with the plastic vs. the cloth b/c the plastic was significantly cheaper, but it also looked that way in person (although not really in pictures). More...

Joanne was made to do this. I have never met someone so dedicated to her job. Every time I had a question she got back to me within a blink of an eye...and she's the owner! I brought in photos of the flowers I liked and from that she made suggestions on what type of flowers I should work with. Every flower she told me about was perfect. Once we got closer to the wedding I emailed her a list of how many of each item I needed. Joanne is really on her game, because she noticed that I forgot one boutonniere and I would have had a very sad ring bearer if it wasn't for her good eye. All the bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres were beyond words. I feel like every guest came up to me and asked me about the different flowers I used in my bouquet. Joanne was amazing and I love getting flowers from FlowersFlowers! More...

I had a very simple, specific request. Flame callas. That's it. No filler, etc. The only florist who A) gave me a good quote and B) didn't try to talk me out of doing JUST callas was Joanne at Flowers Flowers. Her communication (via email) was prompt, informative (pictures included...only florist who pre-emptively emailed me some to make sure we were on the same page with the type of callas I wanted). We met with her in person for maybe 15 minutes, knocked out all the details, and it was done. It was Joanne, who followed up consistently to make sure there were no changes in my order, sent me pictures of the flowers days before the wedding after they had arrived at the shop, and was by far the best vendor we dealt with for the wedding. I cannot recommend Flowers Flowers enough. More...

Joanne did the flowers for my wedding on 8/29/09.  They were perfect!  Joanne is friendly, creative, and very easy to work with!  I went to meet her with two vague ideas of what I would like for the flowers, with a couple of pictures to show what I meant.  By vague, I mean really, really vague.  I think my exact words to her were, "I love flowers, so this is important to me.  But I'm torn between doing all white and a multi-colored wildflower look."  None of my vague ideas or confused explanations phased her, she smiled and nodded the entire conversation and the final product was fantastic.  Additionally, throughout the planning, she was very easy to work with and she did all of the communication herself.  She came to the church the day of the wedding (I'm not sure if she had other staff with her, it was kind of a blur ;-)) to deliver the flowers and help with all the boutonnieres and corsages.  For those brides reading this, definitely an excellent choice for a florist!

As you may be able to see from my profile picture, my wedding flowers were very beautiful.  Joanne, the owner, was able to translate precisely what I envisioned - lots of color, not too big, etc. - into reality.  My order included bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, pew bows and an aisle runner. On the day of the wedding, her staff came to the church to deliver the flowers and to help the attendants and moms to put their flowers on.  Everything was on-time and looked great.  However, there was a small issue. My order was short a corsage.  My new mother in-law had to walk down the aisle without a corsage. The good news is that  It worked out - my mother gave up hers to keep everyone smiling. More...
