Amazing wedding flowers! – Our reception tent was breathtaking! When I first saw it I wanted to cry. Then I never wanted to leave...I could look at it forever. We received so many compliments on the arrangements - at the end of the night, they were ALL gone - everyone had claimed them, faster then we could even pass them out.
We orignially went to Kathleen with some ideas and then she ran with it. I had printed some samples and taken them to her but our end result was better than we could have ever hoped for. She helped us to stay within our budget but at the same time worked hard to get us all the flowers and colors that we wanted. We had 3 different types of tables and wanted different arrangements for each style tables. Kathleen was open to the idea and being creative with us. It was a job that many people wouldn't have taken because of all our requests and the need to travel to another island.
We got married on Maui and live in Honolulu. We didn't want to hire someone on Maui because it would have been too difficult to work them them long distance. I don't know what we would have done if she wasn't willing to travel and help us fly the flowers over and reach out to vendors on maui for us.
We were hesitant when she suggested putting vegetables on the tables as part of the centerpieces but they turned out amazing, not to mention a conversation piece for our guests. It was perfect and unique! I learned to trust the florist since that is her expertise and they totally know what they are doing.
We highly highly recommend Stanley Ito Florist and Kathleen. She was so open to working with us and our ideas. We even had last minute requests like the day before the wedding and she was still able to deliver.
If I could publish our flowers I totally would - they speak for themselves.
Thank you Kahtleen for making our wedding day pefect!
do NOT recommend it. complete WRONG color, WRONG style, WRONG everything – To all my future brides...do NOT go with Stanley Ito for wedding flowers. Wrong order/color and complete disappointment!
Here's the story:
We ordered 1 hand-tied SA (South American) red rose bouquet for myself, and 3 hand-tied SA white rose bouquets for the bridesmaids. Also SA rose boutonnieres for groomsmen, and corsages for mothers.
And 19 centerpieces with SA roses.
It was around $1000 order.
Stanley Ito got the order all WRONG!
We had made revisions with Kathleen 2 weeks before the wedding and had given her a very CLEAR & CONCISE, TYPED-out list of what we had wanted, she had signed it, made us a copy of it and put the revised list in their order folder.
We were SHOCKED and DISAPPOINTED when we received the flowers (2hrs before the wedding ceremony)
The bouquets were NOT hand-tied, instead the bouquets, were in CHEAP-looking plastic bouquet holders. The best part of this were that the color of the roses were REVERSED, bridesmaid got red roses and I got white roses.
The South American rose boutonnieres we had paid for (which are more expensive then regular roses) were TINY and bruised up.
Last but not least, we ordered corsages for our mothers, instead they gave us leis??????
When we went to our reception in Waikiki, the centerpieces did NOT have SA roses, instead had tiny bud roses...
Needless to say, there was nothing that we could do, because there was not enough time & we were not going to put our wedding ceremony in Ko'olina on hold so they could correct their mistake!
To all the brides out there.... You DESERVE to have a PERFECT wedding day with NO disappointments... learn from my experience and do NOT with Stanley Ito.
Till this day, I look at my wedding pictures and am so disappointed with the flowers!
