FlowersFlowers everywhere, even around your dog’s collar on your Wedding Day!

Joanne, from FlowersFlowers is the top designer at a beautiful, inviting flower shop in Evanston, Ilinois, right outside of Chicago. She has become well known for her edgy designs and outstanding service. We asked Joanne to tell us about FlowersFlowers, and as a bonus, she led us to ChristinaG Photography, who we hope to profile in her own blog soon.
1. How can we dress up our fuzzies to be part of our wedding party?
The dogs can wear boutonnieres and/or corsages, ‘carry’ the rings (perhaps by tying them to their collar with a ribbon).
2. Tell us about your business.
FlowersFlowers is a quaint European style flower shop in Evanston, Illinois, a suburb just north of Chicago, and we always have flowers available to buy by the stem or to have us arrange into a bouquet or arrangement. We focus on high quality unique flowers that you won’t find ‘just anywhere’ and we provide the best in individual customer service. In addition to every day occasions, FlowersFlowers designs wedding flowers, from small and simple to luxurious and elaborate. With over 25 years of experience, our customers can trust that we will make their weddings beautifully memorable.
3. How do you accommodate dogs and their owners?
At my shop, all pets (and children!) are welcome as long as they’re well behaved. 🙂  Not all shops allow dogs, but I do….we have a shop filled with good smells. And, one of the big hotels here, a Hilton, is dog friendly – how great is that?
4. Do you have a great dog/wedding story?
Loved working with the owners of a dog kennel who own six australian shepards of their own! One of their dogs, SO well behaved, was the ring bearer. He wore a tuxedo, and I attached a ‘corsage’ with ribbon to the tuxedo, at his neck, and then I also helped the owner attach the wedding rings as well. He waited behind the scenes until the rings were needed during the ceremony and then Zack called to him, and he went bounding down the aisle to Jane and Zack, and Zack took the rings from him. He is part of their family, and he was part of the wedding party. 🙂
5. Tell us about YOUR dogs!
I grew up with a great mutt who we named Tiffany so she would have a pretty name. 🙂  She was a real mix of a dog, and the sweetest most friendly dog to have growing up. I currently have two cats, Humphrey and Lauren, brother and sister, 11 years old.

  • “Celia made our day!” May 29, 2016
    Celia made our day! It was very important to us to have someone open minded, as we wanted a nonreligious ceremony. Celia took on the challenge and made our ceremony amazingly special despite this. She helped us craft a ceremony that was simple and sweet and super personal to us. I am so thankful for […]
