Wanda is amazing!

I cannot say enough good things about Wanda and Ladybug Design!!! Wanda took my visions (aka my pinterest board) and brought it to life and she did so in such a beautiful, and cost effective way. She was so easy to get in touch with and made the wedding planning so easy and stress-free. Two weeks later and people are still telling me how beautiful my flowers were. Thank you Wanda for making my wedding so picture perfect!

If I could give Wanda 10 stars, I would without hesitation! She did a phenomenal job for our wedding at The Meadows. I went to her having no clue about flowers, or even what type I wanted. I gave her our color scheme and told her what we needed and she wrote up a perfectly detailed proposal. The day of the wedding she knocked it our of the water. Our bouquets, centerpieces and everything in between were absolutely gorgeous! I truly can’t get over how beautiful my bouquet was and still is 3 days later. Guests were raving about all of it! Wanda was also extremely responsive to any questions I had along the way as well as easy to work with whenever I decided to make changes, big or small! I highly recommend her, you will not regret it.

Wanda might actually be a mind reader -- I gave her a few inspiration photos of some ideas I liked and a budget, and she did the rest! Extremely organized, provided a very detailed proposal, and was always very responsive. An absolute pleasure to work with, and a truly beautiful day that she helped to create. Would suggest her to anyone!

I cannot say enough about Wanda and Ladybug Designs! Every single piece she created was stunning and exactly what I wanted. I was constantly changing and adding items to my proposal and Wanda so organized and helpful, it made the whole process a breeze! Flowers were a huge part of my decor so choosing a vendor was very nerve wracking but as soon as I received my first email and proposal back from Wanda I knew I had made the right choice! I recommend Ladybug Designs 100%, she will exceed your expectations! Alana

Wanda was an absolute pleasure to work with!! I gave her a budget and a big dream and she made it work. She also made my crazy ideas come true, like a floral chandelier hanging over my dance floor! I made so many last minute changes and she just said “sure” and was able to do them allot them for me! My bouquet was dreamy and the greenery in my mansion was the best decoration there could have been. My guests couldn’t stop mentioning how beautiful the flowers were!! Thank you so much Wanda for making my romantic garden dreams come to life!!

WOW! I had sent Wanda a few pictures off Pinterest (which changed often), some colors I liked and our budget. I am still in awe of what she came up with on the wedding day and keeping it under our budget. I walked in and saw the flowers being set up and was blown away. When I say it was more than I could have ever imagined I truly mean it. It calmed me as I walked in b/c it all looked soooooo beautiful. I am still getting compliments on the flowers. The small details around the venue that they added (and I did not ask for) were incredible; flowers on the bar, flowers in the cake, the ribbons..... I wish flowers could stay alive forever b/c I would never ever get rid of them. Can not thank you enough!

Absolutely beautiful!! Wanda was an absolute pleasure to work with and with pretty minimal direction from me, made our wedding look like a fairy tale! She responded quickly to all of my emails and her floral proposal was very thorough so I knew exactly what to expect on the day of the wedding. She also helped to make several changes along the way as I changed my mind about some items in the original proposal. I also loved that she was very laid back and easy to work with, she was never pushy but was willing to help with her creativity when I needed it. So thankful I found Ladybug Floral for my wedding!

Wanda is a miracle worker! She took what I was envisioning and she made it come to life, including a Pinterest image that I had found online (no lie- completely SPOT ON). It's been a week since our wedding, and our guests are still raving about the flowers. We cannot believe how gorgeous everything looked!! Not only were her end products gorgeous, but she was so patient, responsive, communicative, and thoughtful along the way. Moreover, she asked us really important questions about things that we hadn't even thought about. For example, during the planning process she warned us to account for wind when thinking about our flowers. Never in a million years did I think that I would get married on a gusty day in early August, but sure enough- I did! Thanks, to Wanda- we were all set! You cannot go wrong with her. She's hands-down the best!

Working with Wanda was absolutely amazing! I could not be more pleased or happy with everything Wanda provided, her communication was outstanding from start to finish, her creativity and ideas were so helpful and very much appreciated! When I first saw all the arrangements together in person I was so excited because they came out better than I could have imagined! Even the presentation of how she arranged/placed them in the bridal suite when she delivered them to the venue was gorgeous. Wanda added some lavender to my arrangements which I personally never would have thought of but they looked absolutely amazing in them and I was so happy she suggested it! My guests and the venue employees commented all night and the following day on how lovely the flower arrangements were! Wanda also helped me stay with in my budget, which of course when planning a wedding is very important & it was impressive as well seeing as I had 11 bridesmaids, 13 centerpieces, 2 flower arrangements for wine barrels, 11 boutineers, corsages and my my bridal bouquet, I honestly didn't think it would be possible to stay with in the budget I had in mind but Wanda made it possible. I would very highly recommend Wanda to anyone looking for a florist, my fiance and I were beyond thrilled and impressed with Wanda and everything she provided and really can not say enough great things about our experience with working with her!

Wanda worked with us to stay within a modest budget and all the arrangements looked terrific. We used lanterns and side arrangements which struck the perfect bountiful yet simple tone we were going for. We had no idea what types of flowers would complement our color scheme of mint with a cranberry accent, and Wanda worked magic to make everything just beautiful. My daughter’s wedding was Saturday June 16,2018 in Mystic. Wanda was on site early and helped get the bridal party their bouquets to the preparation hotel adjacent to the venue , which helped keep our photographer on schedule! I highly recommend!

HIGHLY RECOMMEND LADYBUG DESIGNS. Higher than highly recommend ladybug designs! Wanda very talented. Wanda listens to everything you want and makes it happen. She is an artist. I spoke to a gazillion florists before hiring her. No one could stretch my flower budget as wide as she did. No one was as talented as she was. I wanted organic/wild looking arrangements. I had a very specific color pallet. She asked for “inspiration” pictures and immediately understood what I wanted. Also, I was VERY stressed before the wedding. I asked my mom to be the main contact for Wanda. Wanda met with my mom at her farm and chatting about so many different ideas. In the day of the wedding, Wanda was one of the first vendors to arrive at the venue! She was so organized and delivered hair flower pieces directly to the hotel so our hairdressers could do our hair. AND the Flowers!!! The arrangements were gorgeous! A lot of my girl friends got married in the last year, are in engaged or are event planners, and they ALL complimented the flowers separately. And asides from the compliments that we received, WE loved the flowers. I’m SO picky about flowers. And they were SO perfect! We feel so lucky. Thank you, Wanda!!! It was great to meet you on the day of the wedding!! I wish we had more time to talk. You are wonderful! :)

When I first started looking for florists, I was turned off by how competitive the first several people I spoke to were for our business. When my mom found Wanda of Ladybug designs, it was like breath of fresh air. Wanda grows many of her own flowers on her farm in Stonington, and was very easy and pleasant to work with. She made all the minute decisions about centerpieces, my bouquet, the girls bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres, ceremony flowers, cocktail hour flowers, entrance and accessory table flowers (more details and decisions than I ever really appreciated before!) easy and seamless. She was willing to work with us to keep our total budget low by letting us bring in our own centerpiece bases, and threw in some last minute boutonnieres I had forgotten to ask for with no hassle at all. She is a professional who does a beautiful job without drama or fuss, and is a great person who also gives back to her community. She was 100% the right florist for us :).

So, SO happy my husband and I found Ladybug Designs! Finding a florist was one thing I dragged my feet doing, because whenever I found someone I loved the prices overwhelmed me. But, Wanda made it happen. She was very respectful of my budget, was timely writing back to me, and humored me when I was indecisive about colors and sent her picture after picture of bouquets that looked nothing alike. In the end, she did such a wonderful job, making our bouquets just the perfect amount of "wild" and the tables and mantles so romantic. When I arrived at our reception and saw Wanda's greens and flowers all over the mansion at Harkness, I was blown away. It was the exact aesthetics (and then some) that I was looking for. Not to mention she's really just a pleasure to work with. I highly recommend her!!

The flowers at our wedding at Mystic Aquarium looked fantastic, thanks to Wanda and her husband. I met with Wanda several months before our wedding. She had asked me to provide her with examples of the types of bouquet styles and colors I had in mind. I'm not a big flower person, and have terrible allergies, and she made it as easy as possible for me to navigate the different flowers, styles, colors, etc. She was conscious of our budget, and even had the idea that we could use the bridesmaids' bouquets as the table centerpieces. This was brilliant: it saved the girls from having to figure out what to do with the bouquets during the reception, and it really helped keep costs down. Most people didn't even realize the centerpieces were the bouquets, and those who did said they wished they would have thought of that for their own weddings! Wanda's husband dropped off the bouquets and boutonnieres to our hotel the morning of the wedding. They had everything set up in boxes and vases, and even brought over plastic bags to cover the flowers in (it was below freezing outside). He even had rubber bands for us to put around the bouquets to make sure they went into the vases at the reception. When we arrived to the venue that night, Wanda and her husband were already there setting up the rest of the flower clusters on the tables. They looked stunning!! Even now, three days later, my bouquet still looks beautiful in a vase at home. We received so many compliments on how gorgeous the flowers were, and would highly recommend Wanda and Ladybug Designs for wedding flowers.
