Past Brides 19 Responses to Past Brides Florist on November 28, 2016 at 6:59 pm jcan8810 posted 9/30/2015 (updated 10/3/2016) I am the mother of the bride, Jan Cancienne, and can’t say enough about Sue, the owner of Beth’s Flower’s and her staff for making our daughter, Amber Cancienne’s wedding become a beautiful reality. Sue was great not just with flowers but the reminders of what we needed to order if we were forgetting things, also what was unnecessary saving us money. She and Amber worked together as a team approach. That is what it should be, I was married and this was our daughter’s wedding not mine. We first went to Beth’s Flower’s and met with Sue, just 6 weeks after our daughter had gotten engaged. We were from Houma, so we were not sure if she came to Houma. My husband and I had seen her work in New Orleans before. Amber loved her work the minute she saw her shop. At that time we only wanted to use her florist even though I knew she was a wedding planner. My husband had strict orders that we didn’t need a wedding planner. As we left her shop, Amber called her Dad and told him about the appt. and how she loved the flowers and ideas they came up with, he was happy and asked to speak to me. He asked me if Sue was available for Amber’s date of her wedding as a wedding planner? I told him I didn’t know but said,” I thought you said NO wedding planner?” He then stated, ” go in and hire her if she is available, I think you will need help especially that last month and I want you relaxed. We did go back in and with a startled look on her face Sue said, “can help you?” I said, we called her Dad, he wants to know if you are free the date of her wedding as a wedding planner?She looked startled as we all did and said, “I thought your husband said no planner?” We all laughed and she was then hired as a wedding planner. Within a week my husband of 35 years, Amber’s Dad died of a traumatic accident. We have told this story many times. Someone above knew his fate and knew we would need all the help we could get if this wedding was going to take place. It took place 12/12/14 and without Sue, as the wedding planner, Beth’s Flowers bringing in all of Amber’s ideas, making this wedding the most beautiful wedding, working with us sometimes day to day and taking charge when Amber and I couldn’t think for ourselves due to this traumatic loss I can’t imagine what would have happened. This was the most beautifully decorated wedding, Amber had a vision and Beth’s Flower’s and Sue made this vision come true. Sue helped with every detail, making a year of sadness come to life with her spirit, compassion, professionalism, friendship and comfort to both of us. Amber and her planned her wedding and I just watched the fairy tale unfold. Sue I love you and want to give you a million stars because you truly made this dream come true. Beth’s Flowers and Sue incorporated the things we purchased on our own, helped us save money making this wedding the most beautiful wedding and so different from others. She came to Houma several times to help plan, decorated our home, the reception site, the church. She became acquainted with the groom and his family from the beginning and we all fell in love with Sue. Amber and I both have recommended Beth’s Flowers and also recommended Sue as a wedding planner. We could not have done it without you! We have made a new and beautiful friendship. Her shop and staff are the best and I fully recommend anyone who wants a flawless beautiful wedding to use her shop and her services. Thanks in not enough my new dear friend, Jan Cancienne Log in to Reply Florist on November 28, 2016 at 7:09 pm Mrs. Jan, I touched by your review. You and Amber will always be apart of my heart. What a pleasure to be apart of amber wedding. Much Love, Sue Log in to Reply Florist on November 28, 2016 at 7:00 pm posted 10/31/2016 The ladies at Beth’s really get it right! I came in as a bride knowing what colors I wanted but not knowing much about flowers. They worked with me for over an hour and helped me get a good solution for a royal purple and fall orange color scheme. The on my wedding day I could not have asked for fresher or more beautiful flowers. It also super helps that they have an option to rent the vases. I highly recommend using Beth’s for your wedding flowers. They will get everything right and you will be very happy! Log in to Reply Florist on November 28, 2016 at 7:21 pm Sarah, You are so sweet. I’m so happy you loved your flowers! Have a great married life! Sue Log in to Reply Florist on November 28, 2016 at 7:00 pm Sue, Lisa, and the team at Beth’s flowers were great to work with for my flowers! I met them at a bridal show in New Orleans and they told me about their “Build a bouquet” day which really helped me find my vision for what I wanted. Of course I changed my mind a few times over the next 8 months between our original meeting and the wedding but they were very easy to meet up with and helped bring my vision to life! Another perk about working with them is that they had us come in the Friday before the wedding and make sure our flowers are exactly what we ordered/pictured. I had ordered yellow callalillies for the guys boutineers (a pale yellow when I viewed them originally) but when i got there they were bright yellow and would have thrown off the look we were going for! They were so understanding and got us white callalilies and sprayed them pale yellow and it turned out perfect!!! I was very impressed with how they remained calm and fixed the problem immediately. The church and reception flowers were gorgeous as well!! Thanks Beth’s for creating beautiful flowers for us!!

I used Beth’s Flowers for both flowers and wedding planning- and they made my dreams come true! Everything was so beautiful and everything was taken care of so that I could smile from ear to ear all night. I especially loved that we got all the “mandatory events” – such as photos, cake cutting, bouquet throw, etc. out of the way so we could have fun and enjoy our wedding!!!

What a special wedding! Sue Log in to Reply Florist on November 28, 2016 at 7:03 pm posted 10/19/2016 Our wedding was both small, and on a Sunday, so it was a little difficult honing in on a florist who was willing to book our order, which was really just a few bouquets, some boutonnieres, and a corsage or two. So I was very pleased when I finally found Beth’s Flowers. I worked primarily with Lisa, who did an excellent phone consultation with me – as we live in New York, but our wedding was in Louisiana. Even though I’m totally inept when it comes to flowers and describing what I want, Lisa was able to understand, and came up with a design that I found totally beautiful. When I arrived at the shop to review our flowers a day or two before the wedding, it was as if these were plucked out of my imagination and just made real before me. We had so many compliments on the flowers, and the groom’s lovely but simple boutonniere was the finishing touch on his already handsome suit. Thank you, Beth’s Flowers! You do fabulous work!

So we were glad to make it work. Sue Log in to Reply Florist on November 28, 2016 at 7:04 pm posted 10/04/2016 Wow, Wow, Wow, – that is what I have to say about Beth’s. I was a panic ridden bride, just ask my now husband. I had visited four florist who even after giving them pictures could not produce a sample bouquet that I loved. Then I heard of Beth’s and found Beth’s on The Knot. I’m so so thankful that I did. We are an older couple, (yes older people still get married) and I wanted to make a statement with flowers. We wanted a cross as our back drop and the flowers had to be perfect. When I saw the flowers put onto the cross I was thrilled, and mission accomplished. Of course we hit a snag on our big day, just 45 minutes from GO time the skies opened up. I was in a panic again, but thank God I listened to Sue and the cross had silk flowers. The rain stopped and it was as beautiful as ever. For the wedding I had my three grown god-daughters as flower girls (who rocked it by the way) and three brides-maids. They all carried simple baby- breath bouquets and it was the perfect touch. Then my bouquet, what can I say – absolute perfection; that I will never be able to top. It was whimsical, colorful and stood out in every picture. Again Mission Accomplished. Beth’s fit into our budget perfectly and Jen and Sue made sure everything was absolutely perfect. If you are looking for a place so that you can stop worrying over your flowers, STOP you have found it in Beth’s.

Sue and her team took everything that we wanted and incorporated it perfectly! Being an out of state bride, it is definitely hard to choose vendors when you cannot visit them in person, but Sue spent time on the phone with me and then in person when I was able to visit and really sought out my vision. We were absolutely in love with everything Sue and her team did and are very thankful!

We had a few small issues with invoicing and chuppah rental (they do not own one and you have to rent it separately from a event vendor), however they were such small things that I felt that it didn’t take away from the overall rating. Sue and her team were WONDERFUL and so kind to me and my family. The flowers I really wanted were going to be more expensive than I could afford, so we went with a less expensive bunch. On the day before our wedding when we went to go look at our flowers (another cool thing she does), Sue surprised me and was able to get in an order of my favorite Peony flower for the same price! I was so happy and pleasantly surprised! Thank you for making such beautiful arrangements for our wedding.

Sue Log in to Reply Florist on November 28, 2016 at 7:33 pm posted 11/22/2016 I am from New Orleans, but live in Houston. We wanted to plan a wedding to take place in New Orleans in under 2 months! Trying to plan from out of town…can you say stress?! One of my first phone calls was to Beth’s and I had the pleasure to talk with Lisa for over an hour! We talked about growing up in the city, families, weddings, flowers, ideas, etc. She put me right at ease. Whew… I described the wedding and the budget. She immediately had ideas for the perfect bridesmaids bouquets. They were extremely friendly, professional and the flowers were just like we had discussed. The flowers were delivered the morning of the wedding in small water vases for freshness. Thank you Lisa and Beth’s flowers for putting this local out of town girl at ease and creating a beautiful wedding! Joan van Heerden Log in to Reply Florist on November 28, 2016 at 7:35 pm Hannaha posted 10/21/2016 I had been researching wedding planners on the knot and contacted a few but just wasn’t finding anyone that met my entire “checklist” and made me feel truly comfortable. Immediately when I talked to Sue and Lisa for the first time, I knew I had found my wedding planner. Everything about them was perfect (price, personality etc.). They really just make you feel like family. I am from New Orleans but currently live in Houston and Sue and Lisa have been a blessing every step of the way. They have scheduled vendor appointments for us on my very, very tight schedule with both recommended vendors and various vendors I asked about. Even with my parents still living in New Orleans, there is no way we could have accomplished so much without the Beth’s Flowers team. Weddings are a lot of work and they are worth every penny!! There will be no stress with Sue and Lisa coordinating the big day! AND not only are they amazing planners, but the florist is also fabulous. I had been looking at so many different floral schemes but couldn’t quite pinpoint what direction I wanted. Then I attended the Beth’s flowers “build-a-bouquet” event and, of course, Sue to the rescue! I told her kind of what I was thinking and literally in 10 minutes she crafted my perfect bridal bouquet and the bridesmaids’ bouquets. Even though I couldn’t explain exactly what I was envisioning, they understood my taste and voilà, perfection! And subsequently Beth’s Flowers was also hired as our florist! To say New Orleans wedding planners have helped bring my wedding dreams to reality does not even begin to describe the wonderful adventure it has been with them as a full-service wedding planner! Log in to Reply Florist on November 28, 2016 at 7:41 pm Hannaha, You and your mom were a hoot. One thing Lisa and I are known for is our personality! LOL!!! Our build a bouquet event at Beth’s Flowers is a big hit with many of our brides. It gives them a chance to figure out what they are looking for with wedding flowers. So many brides ask us to do it all the time. Unfortunately we only can do it twice a year. Sue New Orleans Wedding Planning New Orleans Louisiana Log in to Reply Florist on January 2, 2017 at 10:17 pm posted 12/30/2016 I am so impressed by Beth’s Flowers. I walked into the shop with a couple of pictures on my phone and within 5 minutes Sue had written up my entire floral plan. I was BEYOND happy with how all of my flowers turned out. They were absolutely stunning. I loved them and got so so many compliments. I had them decorate my cake and put some flowers and babysbreath into vases for my tables. So simple, yet perfect. They created adorable, delicate flower crowns for my two flower girls. I also had them decorate my venue Popp Fountain with candles. They lined them up the aisle and arranged them on my alter. The set up was beautiful. Sue is great and knows her stuff so you will feel confident in whatever she does and Lisa is a sweetheart and is wonderful to work with. Would definitely recommend Beth’s Flowers! Log in to Reply Florist on January 2, 2017 at 10:23 pm posted 12/30/2016 The bridal party flowers were beautiful, as were the center pieces and mantle decorations. The petals down the outside aisle and lanterns were lovely. The final cost for waht we received was a good value. The bride and mother of the bride believe that careful communication around the look and feel of what we wanted was very important, including confirmation that Beth’s Flowers clearly understood what we wanted. We went back and forth with Pinterest photos, email and conference call a couple of weeks prior to the wedding date. Lisa is passionate about her worked and cared about us as if it were a friend of hers’ wedding. Lisa was onsite the day of and made sure everything was how we wished.
