Sally at Milwaukee Flower Company was the best! I worked with her for my recent New Year's Eve wedding and was totally thrilled with the results. She was very easy going and easy to work with. She took great care to understand what I was looking for and came up with such creative and awesome options for my budget. She let me share what I wanted and gave helpful suggestions, totally improving upon and enhancing my vision! She came up with great bouquets for me and bridesmaids, super cool flower bracelets for my mom and ring bearer, gorgeous garlands and center pieces. I got so many compliments on our flowers and they fit perfectly with our event. I happily recommend Sally and Milwaukee Flower Co. to everyone!

I worked with Sally for my wedding last month, and could not be happier with the floral work she provided for us! By today's standards, my wedding was relatively small (100 people), and had an equally small budget. But, at no point did Sally make me feel like my wedding was any less important because I had a small budget. Instead, she emphasized how much she enjoyed working on smaller, more intimate wedding ceremonies, and was more than able to work within my budget. She listened to my vision for the big day, and had plenty of ideas for our flowers! Leading up to the wedding, she was very easy to communicate with. And when the big day came, I could not have been happier with my bouquet, and the decorations for the venue! Everything was precisely what we had envisioned and discussed, and I got so many compliments on my flowers! If I ever have another event that I need flowers for, I would absolutely work with Sally again!

Sally is incredible and I highly recommend working with her! I know very little about flowers, other than that they're pretty and I wanted local, seasonal ones, so describing anything I wanted to a florist would have been really difficult. Luckily, I showed Sally my Pinterest board, my & the bridesmaids' dresses, and talked about the venue (Villa Terrace) and she nailed the look I only-sort-of knew I wanted. I'm naturally skeptical and with our wedding was obviously nervous about *everything* but even the details I wasn't so sure about turned out to be awesome! The flowers coordinated perfectly with the bridesmaid dresses she had only seen online, the vases were perfect matched to the venue, our moms loved their flower 'bracelets', and the flower girl's crown was a perfect touch (even if she only wore it for 30 minutes!). It was also super critical to have a solid level of trust with all of our vendors since we were planning the wedding from 700+ miles away and didn't really have anyone coordinating in Milwaukee. After talking to Sally on the phone and emailing a bit (and scouting her website & Instagram!), I felt totally confident in her style, choices, and ease to work with. I also really appreciated that she didn't try to oversell us on anything. We added a couple of things throughout the process, but actually eliminated (or she recommended against) some decor items when we toured the venue together. It's clear she cares more about giving you a great event than making a few extra bucks off you.

If you're looking for the sweetest, most creative and fun florist to work with, you've just found her. Sally was such a sweetheart throughout the entire planning process. Each time we spoke I felt as though I was chatting with an old friend. She was very honest with me when it came to what flowers would and would not go well together, ones that were in season and ones that weren't, and was open to any silly question I had. Sally always responded in a timely manner and helped calm me down when I had mini panic attacks about my decor and whether or not I had enough centerpieces. I gave Sally some general ideas and direction for what I wanted and let her fill in the rest. When the day came and I saw the gorgeous work she had done I just about started to cry. Every single detail was everything I wanted and more. She took care of explaining to the venue staff what needed to go where and even took the time to hang out with me for a bit and meet my mom. It was very special to me to have someone that both myself and Ryan loved, someone who took the time to make you feel special, and to really connect with. I couldn't have loved my flowers or Sally more! Courtney was amazing as well!! Total sweetheart!

Sally was absolutely amazing. She totally understood my vision during planning and executed it perfectly. She was professional, kind but also knows how to get stuff done. She eased so much of my anxiety during planning. Her flower arrangements were just beautiful and if you want greenery, Sally is your girl!

I greatly recommend Milwaukee Flower Company - Sally's creativity is unmatched. She uses flowers, vegetables and herbs in our table arrangements which garner compliments all the time! Her flexibility and openness means a tailor-made look to compliment our decor. Sally's dedication sets her apart from other vendors, she always goes the extra mile to make Corazon look beautiful.

I Highly HIGHLY recommend Milwaukee Flower Co!! It was like Sally crawled in my head and knew EXACTLY what I wanted. My flowers were perfection and didn't break the budget. What more could a girl ask for?!

This winter, I have been enjoying a weekly home delivery of flowers from Milwaukee Flower Company. I told Sally to "surprise me, and she never fails to create a delicious bouquet. For the same amount I was spending at the store on flowers every week, I now have flowers that are fresh, long lasting, and, most importantly, created with Sally's artistic flair. What a brilliant idea!

Sally is an excellent florist and wedding coordinator. I am very confident that I would not have been happier with anyone else. As a florist, she is a one woman show which I love. Not only do I prefer to support local, independent businesses but also, I loved the one on one attention I received from Sally. I had some idea of what I wanted but I am not artsy, creative or particularly crazy about flowers in general. I had several different ideas in my head and she sat down with me, several times, and helped me organize my ideas. She asked questions, listened to my thoughts and put it all into a visual concept my brain could comprehend. My ideas changed, my budget fluctuated, my interest in the whole “flower” thing swayed and she worked with all of that, with incredible patience. I never felt pressured to do anything I didn’t want to or to spend more than I could, she was very open to working within my budget. Mostly though, she helped me to figure out exactly what I wanted by arranging numerous meetings, emails and phone conversations. Sally went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with the ultimate outcome. The flowers for my wedding were amazing and they were EXACTLY what I wanted. She is truly talented and has an eye for making flowers look like a work of art! I really don’t think I would have gotten this much one on one with a commercial flower shop. I can’t say enough positive things about Sally Vander Wyst!
We hired Sally a little late in the game to be our day-of “coordinator”. We didn’t want to deal with figuring out the logistics of everything or having to tell people what to do. Sally took the job as seriously as if it was her own wedding. I mean it. She was so incredibly organized and on top of every single aspect of getting married, not just the “day-of” stuff. We would have been lost without her. She brought things to our attention we never would have thought of. She made lists and timelines and gave us “to-do’s” and set up regular meetings to go over everything. She went far above and beyond her job as a day-of coordinator. Sally made sure we had ALL of the details taken care of. When it came to the rehearsal and wedding day, she was calm, patient and professional but assertive enough to make everything happen the way it was supposed to. She took on a huge responsibility and because of Sally, our wedding went without any glitches. We know it would not have been nearly as organized or complete without her assistance.
We highly, highly recommend Sally Vander Wyst for your floral and wedding planning needs! She is incredibly talented, extremely organized, easy to talk to and takes her job very seriously. She will go above and beyond what you are paying her for to make sure everything turns out the way you want it to.

Best vendor we used for our wedding! The design team at Milwaukee Flower Company is absolutely amazing. I had complete confidence in simply describing the look and colors we wanted to incorporate in our wedding, and then letting Courtney and Sally run with their creativity. They can bring to life a vision even better than you can imagine! Courtney was our designer and her work is stunning, unique, and seriously one-of-a-kind. If you're looking for flowers that look straight out of a magazine, the gals at Milwaukee Flower Company are who you need.
MFC also works with local vendors to ensure their product is of top quality and their business supports their community. They have a huge passion for what they do and their designs reflect that!

Simply put, Sally is an expert. The flowers looked absolutely incredible! She took all of my visions and mashed them together - she truly has extraordinary talent! Sally was excellent to work with and very attentive to my needs. I can't recommend her more highly.
