If you're into intentional wedding design and aesthetics like we are, one of the most important decisions you can make for your wedding is well thought out floral design. Choosing your wedding florist can make or break the whole look of your wedding design and to us, it's worth the investment! from a cascading ceremony floral installation, to the delicate design of overflowing table center pieces and bouquets, they play such an important role in bringing your wedding look to life (and even make a massive impact on how your photos turn out!)
Wedding planning can be daunting and stressful, so we've done the work for you and have put together a list of our top ten wedding florists in the Chicago and Midwest Area.
