Tina not only provided flowers for my wedding but also decorated the ceremony space and reception space for me. She made everything look so perfect. I received so many compliments on how everything looked. Couldn't have asked for a better florist. More...

They did a fantastic job with my small wedding order. The flowers were beautiful and beyond my expectations. The owner worked with my budget and I still felt like they were luxurious. Couldn't be happier!

I had a tiny wedding in Chicago this summer and Tina was amazing to work with. She worked with my budget and color preferences and definitely wowed me with the arrangements. I was really impressed with how everything turned out. The flowers were very fresh and looked very luxe. More...

Tina does beautiful bouquets on the spot.  I have dropped in on a few occasions (recitals, performances).  She put together just what I needed:-)

I have used Tina and Dollie for two of my daughter's weddings. Two different budgets. One extravagant and one simple. Tina and Dollie put together incredible centerpieces , bridal party bouquets, etc. for both weddings. Very easy and accommodating to work with! More...

Tina a Dollie were our wedding day flower saviors. I am so grateful to them for the beautiful work that they did & for their absolute professionalism, patience and compassion.A few weeks before our wedding, the person who was going to do our flowers proved that she was not up to the job.  Everything happens for a reason; A friend who is a caterer and event planner swooped in before panic could ensue and  recommended Tina and Dollie. We were on a tight budget and even tighter time frame, but Tina and Dollie came through in spades. Dollie listened closely, quickly understood our taste, made suggestions completely in line with what we had in mind but were only able to vaguely describe. That in itself is an art.Dollie was able to tailor the order to our budget without sacrificing quality. The price we paid was more than reasonable.When the flowers were delivered, they actually took my breath away. They even upgraded my bouquet. as a surprise.  For the reception, they didn't just design the centerpieces, but took in to account how they would look across the entire venue, varying the height to create an entire picture. The effect was stunning.The only sad thing that happened is that my bouquet got left in the limo after the ceremony on the way to the venue. But at least I have the pictures and the many compliments we have gotten for the work Tina and Dollie did.Dollie & Tina, thank you again for your stunning work. It was a serious pleasure to work with you.*I meant to give them 5 stars the first time I did this review - the 4 stars was a mistake on my part. More...

I micro-managed every single detail of my daughter's quinceanera except the flowers, and here's why: I had Tina and Dollie. Every time someone asked me what I was doing for tablescapes or flowers or decor I just said 'Tina and Dollie are handling that.' I know for damn certain I didn't pay enough for how absolutely stunning that room looked when they were done, and even my kitschy little idea of using empty Patron bottles as centerpieces was handled with grace and good taste - such that I had people asking me if they'd mind if I mimicked that setting! Tina, I'm usually pretty good with words but I know none of the words I've got can thank you and Dollie enough for putting into effect the vision I had for a room filled with light, delicate color, the sweetness of summer and the refined elegance that I dreamed about all those years. When my daughters hid the surprise flowers we were supposed to receive in the morning - and then forgot about them - I could not believe that Dollie went back to the shop and prepared a whole new set so that none of us would be without that special touch. You understood what that dream space looked like in my head from the very beginning and made our daughter's once-in-a-lifetime night magical. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. ~ C. More...

When people see my wedding pictures, "I love your flowers!" comes before "Oh you look so beautiful!"  I don't even mind :)  I am a flower-lover, and Tina and Dollie created what I wanted with my wedding flowers perfectly - a seriously eye-catching and gorgeous bouquet.I wanted texture, and maroon, and gerbera daisy, and touches of white - a nontraditional bride bouquet - and they pulled it off, adding in sweet pea which I didn't even know I liked.  Totally worth it and stunning in the pictures.Our table decorations (other than the flowers) were on the simple side - white linens, small favors, and your normal place settings, so I was depending on Tina and Dollie for the splashes of color and excitement in the center - and OH they came through.  I had classy square vases, loosely arranged flowers as I requested, with lots of texture, color, and most of all the daisies were there.We also had flowers on our cake, and I don't even know what was involved to make it happen but somehow they coordinated with our venue, cake baker and event planner to make a gorgeous arrangement of flowers on the cake.  Useful info about Tina and Dollie - if I remember correctly they're a pair of friends who do only weddings, and have done for years.  So, they don't have a "flower shop" but instead an office where they meet clients for appointments - Worked for me.  This was nice because with a May wedding, the flower shops I called were all preoccupied with Mother's Day, and were hemming and hawing about whether they could do a wedding so close.  The office is a bit hard to see from the road so just google the address and park - look for the big flower sign.    I worked mostly with Tina, and she was available by text, email or phone for confirmation and last minute details, which was really helpful.  Finally, on the quote they give they're very transparent about what each thing costs, so if you're trying to cut back you can ask about specifics instead of dealing with a "package deal" where you don't know where the money is going.  And, if you're trying to add something a few weeks beforehand you know how much it's going to add to the contract.

Tina and Dollie arranged the flowers for my wedding in September.  They were easy to work with, took the time to understand what I wanted, and delivered a perfect finished product.  I highly recommend their service to any bride looking for gorgeous flowers! More...

This review is long overdue!  Tina and Dollie were AMAZING.  I planned my wedding long distance last year and did most of my communication over email before actually meeting them in person.  Basically I sent email upon email of photos or dos and don'ts.  I probably sent a good 20 emails.  I don't know how they did it.  But when I went into their shop they had set up such beautiful samples of exactly what I was thinking but couldn't put into words.  I had wanted limes incorporated into the arrangements and they made these beautiful flowers with limes - so amazing!  The best part that the costs - very reasonable was a good bang for your buck!  They worked with my budget.On the day of they were on time and really so sweet.  I went up and hugged them when they arrived.  My bouquet was more beautiful than I could imagine.  I was so happy!  I would recommend anyone to use them (and I have btw).

Out of all of our wedding vendors, I think I was most impressed with the work Tina and Dollie did for our wedding in July.  Throughout the entire process, Dollie was very professional, helpful and very sweet!Dollie's suggestions throughout the process were extremely helpful - given I am a clueless tomboy and don't know the first thing about flowers. :)  I gave her an idea of what colors I wanted incorporated and that I wanted to include the cattleya orchid in my bouquet since my mom named me after that flower.  This orchid was not the easiest to work with but my bouquet and all of the flowers were absolutely gorgeous.  I let Dollie know that we would be taking photos before the ceremony so she provided a couple extra boutonnieres in case the flowers wilted during our long photo session outdoors - they all lasted but it was great to have the extras as a backup.  I would recommend Tina and Dollie's services to anyone - the flowers were so beautiful and the service they provided was top notch!

Tina & Dollie made the bouquets, corsages and boutonnieres for my wedding and they did a great job. I hadn't requested specific flowers but had shown Tina some photos of what I had in mind, and the flowers came out exactly as I had hoped. Tina was very easy to work with and I am very happy with how everything turned out! More...

Tina and Dollie did the flowers for my wedding! Tina did an amazing job!  I told her I wanted elegant and simple spring-like! She out did herself. I gave her the color scheme and the one restriction of not using the Starburst lily and everything was gorgeous! I had the centerpiece pots that I wanted her to use and they created a beautiful display of flowers in each one.  They used different flower arrangements in each one and each were uniquely beautiful! I continue to receive compliments from people who attend the wedding! Just wonderful! More...

Tina and Dollie are brilliant, sweet, and wonderful women to work with.  They were the florist for my wedding and they did an absolutely amazing job.They did the personal flowers (brides bouquet, bridesmaids bouquets, corsages, flower girl pomander, and boutinerres). I showed them a picture of what I wanted the bouquet to look like and they copied it to a tee, well they actually made it look more amazing than the picture. I received compliments all day long and days after on my bouquet, the bridesmaids bouquets and pretty much all of the work. They are the super sweetest people to work with.  They are very patient, will listen to your ideas, offer great suggestions, and are just overall wonderful people you want to be working with when you are planning a wedding.  There prices are very reasonable compared to other florist in the city (I was a budget bride).  I will recommend them to any bride I talk to. They are fantastic!! More...

I can't even begin to explain how wonderful these women are!  Beautiful work.  Fantastic patience with clients.  Punctual.  Smart.  They will bend over backwards to get the job and do it well.  As a person who is in a position to refer brides and corporate clients to florists, Tina and Dollie have never let me down.  They take the time to listen and do a presentation that pleases the eye as much as the clients and their guests.

We worked with Tina for our wedding flowers, and she was fantastic. She worked around our budget and found ways to give us the look we wanted, without grabbing every last cent out of our pockets. The photograph we showed Tina of the centerpiece we wanted had some very interesting flowers that she hadn't heard of. She did her research and found a way to have them shipped in from New Zealand without adding extra cost to our total. Tina is soft spoken, calm, and easy to talk to. She listens to your ideas and takes them to a new level with her creative talent. Our flowers turned out beautifully, and I'll enjoy looking at them in photographs for years to come! More...

I LOVE Tina and Dollie.  I met them years back when they were fairly new.  I was a wedding planner and recommended many brides to them.  They are very accommodating when trying to work within your budget.  They are very sweet and pleasant to work with and very professional.  I even recommended them to my brother and his wife when they were looking for a florist.  The flowers for their wedding were beautiful.  I'm so happy to see how Tina and Dollie have grown through the years and now have a storefront location.  Way to go ladies!

Tina & Dollie did the flowers for my wedding in November.  I can't remember where I initially found them, but probably on The Knot or WeddingWire.  I had seen a photo of a bouquet they did that was so vibrant and had such great texture, that I knew I wanted to consider them for my flowers, but was surprised that there weren't many reviews written about them.  I went out on a whim and met with Dollie one day at their new space on Kimball.  Dollie was so great and had tons of ideas, which was so helpful, because I needed guidance on what I really wanted.  I knew I wanted bright red and lots of texture.  Communication was good throughout, mostly e-mail contact, with my updated contract e-mailed to me every time I changed the number of flowers, or types of flowers I wanted.  They were so flexible.  The price quote was soo much cheaper than the other flower shop in Chicago I checked out too.  My budget was less than $1500.On the day of the wedding, Tina & Dollie showed up very early to the reception and set up everything, then hand delivered the personal flowers to my hotel room.   My bouquet was gorgeous & exactly what I'd imagined.  I got tons of compliments on my flowers & love looking at the pictures of them.  They were truly beautiful and I could have wanted nothing more.  I highly recommend Tina & Dollie to all brides looking for fabulous wedding flowers & don't want to spend a fortune!!

My wedding planner recommended Tina and Dollie and I'm so glad that she did.  Both Tina and Dollie were a pleasure to work with, listened to all of our thoughts, offered unique and fun suggestions, and delivered absolutely beautiful arrangements for our big day.  Couldn't have had a better experience.

I used Tina and Dollie for my wedding in September.  I worked primarily with Dollie and her work exceeded my expectations.   She instilled a confidence in me so that I didn't need to worry about anything the day of our wedding.  The flowers were amazing, unique and perfect for us.  Dollie was able to work with our budget and covered every detail.   I would definitely recommend them again.  Thanks so much, Tina and Dollie!

Tina and Dollie were one of the florist our wedding planner had recommended to us.  We met with two florists and loved Tina's energy.  We were the difficult clients that had very little idea of what we wanted.  Over a couple meetings she put two centerpieces together for us, one of which we loved and ended up using as the church flowers.  We liked the second one but didn't think it would work with the venue space (the piece she put together was exactly what we had described to her).  I called Tina and told her my concerns and asked for a fourth meeting.  When I arrived I found out Tina (without being asked) drove out to the suburbs to look at our venue space so she could help put together a centerpiece that would compliment the room.  She agreed that the last centerpiece would not work and we went back to the drawing board.  By this time our wedding was less than two weeks away and we had changed the entire color scheme.  There was no more time for sample centerpieces.  The first flowers I saw were the bouquets.  There are no words to describe how perfect they were.  My bouquet was exactly what I had pictured in my head.  We then arrived to the venue and my husband and I got to see the room before our guests arrived.  All the stress and time we spent looking at flowers and meeting with Tina had paid off.  The flowers were absolutely gorgeous and made the room come together.  I would highly recommend Tina and Dollie to anyone.  They will deliver!!!  Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding perfect!

Tina and Dollie were the florists for my wedding.  They did an amazing job on my flowers and my centerpieces were even better than I imagined. I think people were getting sick of me saying how much I loved my flowers throughout the night.  =)Both Tina and Dollie are wonderful to work with and made everything stress free. They are incredibly talented, and you can tell they truly love what they do. I would recommend anyone to use them for their event! More...

Tina and Dollie were the florists for my wedding, and they did a great job! I dealt primarily with Tina, who was very friendly and enthusiastic during my consultation, and the results were fantastic. My bouquet was exactly what I wanted and the other personal flowers were very pretty. My budget did not allow for all floral centerpieces, but Tina helped to coordinate a combination of some floral centerpieces along with bowls of fruit and potted herbs that I provided to make it all cohesive and beautiful! They are opening a new store soon and I will certainly stop by for future floral needs! More...

Tina and Dollie did my wedding and I thought they did a fantastic job. I mainly worked with Tina, who did a great job navigating the complicated mixed signals she was getting from mom, bride, and groom. We were all carrying on discussions "with passion," but Tina remained unruffled and still understood what we wanted, and gave lots of fun and unusual suggestions. I even called her like a week before the wedding asking if we could add another color or two to the bouquet... and she was nice enough to accommodate.The flowers were absolutely beautiful for the wedding... she was willing to find whatever we wanted (for example, cattalya orchids, which are big and beautiful but a big hard to get). She also offered very reasonable prices. She even took us to see the flowers ahead of time, which was so generous of her. She was easy for all of the other vendors to work with on the day of the wedding; everything was where we wanted it and everything looked beautiful, unique, and just as we imagined it.One thing I noticed and appreciated all throughout the process was that Tina kept suggesting ways to keep costs more reasonable. I didn't feel like she (like some in the wedding business) was in it just to make money... she honestly wanted us to have a good product and she knew how to make a beautiful effect without milking us for every available penny. I'm sure someone with a stricter budget than I had would also love working with Tina and Dollie.PS: Right now, they work out of their house. Not a big deal, just fyi--that's where you meet them. It really doesn't matter in the end of the day, she was just a wonderful vendor and a real pleasure to work with. More...

I was referred to Tina & Dollie from a family friend who used basil and mint in their wedding flowers.  Tina & Dollie work and communicate together clearly and have unending energy.   It is obvious how dedicated they are to their craft and making each event unique.  I came with a portfolio of pictures of everything I wanted; Tina and Dollie took every idea and made it better, making every aspect of the of our wedding flowers unique.  At one point, I used the restroom, and by the time I came back, they had thrown together a mock boquet of what I'd have the day of the wedding!  It was a spectacular piece, just imagine the one the big day!  On the wedding day, when I walked into the venue I was stunned with what I saw, every arrangement, boquet and  centerpiece was just as we'd discussed, they were vibrant, well put together, and I still have a few centerpieces decorating the house: the flowers they use live so much longer than what I've experienced in the past.I highly recommend working with these efficient, professional and warm ladies.  They are the pros of the flower industry and its craft.
