Exquisite Floral Designer
By AlexBNYC on 1/26/2015
Meredith at Belle Fleur is the most amazing floral and decor designer I've ever come across. She did the design for my wedding and I have never seen such beautiful flowers and decor. She is a true visionary and created the most spectacular and one of a kind event I've ever attended. I know, I'm a bit biased (!), but I cannot express how many compliments I've received, all echoing the same sentiment. Additionally, I feel tremendously lucky I had the opportunity to work with Meredith - she is not only supremely talented, but a wonderful (and oh so patient!) person. I am forever grateful for the time, effort, and creativity she put into my wedding and know I will use her for every event I have in the future.

I worked with Ashley for my wedding. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted and she was extremely helpful, creative, professional, fun to work with, patient and enthusiastic in developing a concept, working within a budget and throughout the whole process. She personally took care of everything on the big day. The flowers for my wedding were beyond perfect. I loved every single detail. She's the best. I cannot recommend her highly enough.
Wonderful Service & Arrangements Made To Your Asking
By MarchieUSA on 2/14/2010
I live in Virginia and researched for a florist in NY (in the city), and decided to try Belle Fleur. The customer service on the phone was pleasant, even considering it was the middle of the day (busy time) and I needed to get an arrangement to someone before 6:00pm, same day. They were right on top of getting what we discussed, what style of flower arrangement I was looking for them to create. Needless to say, the creation was a hit. People who are saying Belle Fleur is too expensive, well if you want personal service, with creativity that you, as the customer is asking for them to create by your specifications, with delivery with class, then you want Belle Fleur, They are a personal florist, not a fly by the seat of your pants 1-800 florist. Belle Fleur, a florist with class!
Happy Bride, Beautiful Flowers
By JennaBrideToBe on 3/15/2009
Getting hitched in a month and I'm most excited about hiring Belle Fleur for my flowers (I'm also excited abut marrying Aaron, in case he reads this!!). I'm so particular and they have been nothing more than wonderful, patient and creative to work with. I'm not the easiest to please, but every email is returned promptly, ever flower they show me is really gorgeous and they are just real professionals. I'll write back in May with more comments, but for now, I think they are awesome.

Belle Fleur Candles
By BabetteNewYork on 2/3/2009
Their flowers are really gorgeous, but their candles are a must try!! I'm hooked on their fragrances. Their new one in the white patent leather box is unreal, it literally smells like champagne. I bought it at Saks Fifth Avenue.
Te best of the best!

I personally can 100% vouch for this shop as they designed me & my husband's wedding last year. To all brides reading this review, you should know that there is a reason that Belle Fleur has the reputation that they do - their work is superb and the kind of service that they offer is bar none. I literally interviewed over 8 florists and it's kind of like when you meet "the guy", you just know quality. I got married at The Pierre last May and they transformed that space into a complete garden, with birdcages overflowing with flowers...my friends and family were blown away by the creativity. I barely had a vision and they incorporated all my favorite flowers, including these ruffled Sweetpeas that literally looked as if they were hand made - they matched my ruffled wedding dress perfectly!! My flowers are on their website, check it out. -Georgina p.s. I also highly recommend The Pierre Hotel as the prettiest venue, my dress was designed by no other than Vera, Hank Lane Music rocked!, scrumptious cake by Ron Israel & picture perfect photography by Sara Merian.

MY WEDDING WAS LAST MONTH AND I AM STILL GETTING ENDLESS COMPLIMENTS ON THE DECOR. BELLE FLEUR TOOK MY BREATH AWAY WITH THEIR DESIGNS...I CANNOT OFFER MORE PRAISE. THEY WERE SO INVOLVED IN EVERY ASPECT OF DESIGN AND EVERY LAST DECISION WAS SPOT ON PERFECT. I PROBABLY INTERVIEWED 8 OTHER DESIGN COMPANIES WHEN I GOT ENGAGED AND I KNEW FROM THE START THAT THEY WOULD DELIVER...AND BY ALL MEANS THEY CERTAINLY DID.
My Favorite Florist
By LaurenSophia on 9/24/2008
I'VE BEEN IN FASHION FOR THREE YEARS AND MY BOSS, WHO HAS THE FINEST TASTE, HAS ONLY USED BELLEFLEUR. I JUST GOT A PROMOTION (YEAH!!) AND DECIDED TO TREAT MYSELF TO THEIR FLOWERS EVERY WEEK. I CANNOT BEGIN TO TELL YOU HOW EXQUISITE THESE FLOWERS ARE - THEY BRIGHTEN & INSPIRE MY DAY :)
TERRIBLE ATTITUDE; HORRIBLE SERVICE
By eventsNYC on 8/10/2008
I wanted to post this so that others searching for a florist will have help making an informed decision. I work in the design and event field so therefore have a lot of experience with florists. Sadly, I found Belle Fleur to fall well short of what you would expect for a florist of their self-proclaimed caliber. When I initially called for my own wedding, I did not mention that I was in this field to see how I would be treated. Not only was I treated rudely and abruptly but my impression after that call was that, with Belle Fleur, you are over-paying for a reputation, rather than creative floral design or good service (which, let's be honest, is very important when you are planning a special event). A call or two to other florists will likely save you significant money - you will also feel like your business is actually wanted and you won't receive the attitude of a vendor who feels entitled. Unfortunately, I found Belle Fleur highly condescending, disinterested and overall abrasive in attitude with their clients.
