Lemon Drops Weddings & Events

We are an inviting, creative, unique, and accommodating florist/ planner that focuses on working with couples to make their vision a reality. We are professional, but still, have fun while doing so and focus on making your day as stress-free as possible.


What We Offer:

We provide a variety of services including Day of coordination, help with planning as early as day one, rentals ( ex. votives, glassware, arches), and of course, flowers and décor.

Our Wedding Style Is:

Our style is traditional with a twist. Adaptable and innovative, we do not shy away from new ideas or challenges. There is not a design or idea too grand for us to attempt and we love to bring a ‘wow’ factor that you and your guests will never forget.

Our Personality Is:

Fun-loving, welcoming, and creative but, still responsible and detail-oriented.

We cover our bases and listen to our clients so that we can make it as stress-free as possible. We take into account what they’ve told us, but also think of the details that they may have missed.

We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:

We love being wedding florists because it allows us to help make someone’s dreams for their special day come true. No two weddings are ever the same and we love helping each one be as unique as the couple getting married.

What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:

We have a team like no other. We work together to accomplish the best possible outcome for our clients.

Our Pricing:

Our pricing for planning services varies depending on how much help is needed but starts at $1,900 for a basic month of day-of coordination. Average pricing for personals (including bridal bouquets, bridesmaids bouquets, groom/ groomsmen bouts, parents, etc. ) is $1,800, depending on the wedding party size and flower choices, and we “toss” in the toss bouquet as a free gift to our brides!

Meet Melanie

I grew up in an Alabama home where my parents loved to entertain. Whether it was a small dinner party for six or a Christmas celebration for 200, the love of entertaining has been in my life since I was a child. The love of decorating, planning, and cooking for events inspired me to create Lemon Drops. I’m blessed to have my husband by my side who has the same love, vision, and desire to create exciting weddings & events for our friends, family, and clients.

Under The Sea Wedding Ceremony Driftwood Arch with White Hydrangeas, Roses, Greenery, and Gold Coral Flower Arrangement Ideas | Tampa Bay Florist Lemon Drops

Emerald and Gold Downtown Tampa Wedding | The Florida Aquarium

The inspiration for the florals was lots of greenery and full white flowers with a subtle nod to the old-world nautical theme. Pearls and gold sea fans were incorporated into the arrangements and chair sashes. The table centerpieces were gold candelabras wrapped in greenery and white flowers made by my mother.

When we talked to Lemon Drops, they were immediately excited about our ideas, and that was the number one thing we looked for in a vendor. They did an amazing job with the florals, arch, and greenery!

Spring Pastel Wildflower Wedding Bouquet Inspiration | Clearwater Florist Lemon Drops Weddings and Events

Spring Garden-Inspired Wedding | Hilton Clearwater Beach

We needed a florist willing to accommodate our vision and someone who had a history of previous weddings in the style we were looking for. The number one thing that drew us to Lemon Drops Weddings & Events was their attitude. For all of our requests and our discussion about what things could look like, they never said ‘no;' instead, they were happy to put their heads together and figure out how to make things happen. We loved working with them and would recommend them in a heartbeat.

Tropical Chuppah Altar for a Jewish Wedding Ceremony | St Pete Beach Florist Lemon Drops Weddings and Events

Romantic Blush, Blue, and Ivory St Pete Beach Wedding | The Don CeSar

I was looking for my florals to feel refined and organic. The chuppah florals were extremely important to me, and I really wanted to make sure that they stood out to give a ‘wow’ moment.

I loved Lemon Drops' ability to take my Pinterest dreams work within my budget. They listened to what was most important to me and gave me suggestions on ways to save within my pricing. The ability to re-use my chuppah florals for my sweetheart table and the bridesmaid's bouquets for the head table was a huge win! I’m also highly allergic to eucalyptus, so it was an extra challenge for them to find a pretty greenery stem that wouldn’t contrast with the color scheme or make me break out in hives.

Black and White Rooftop St. Pete Beach Wedding | Hotel Zamora

We looked for a wedding florist who could incorporate many types of white flowers with a lot of greenery in the bouquets and someone who could make the beautiful ceremony floral arch a wedding statement piece

Ultimately, I chose Lemon Drops Wedding & Events because I knew I could fully trust them to make my ‘white florals with greenery' vision comes to life, and it was simply beautiful to walk into the ceremony and reception to see it all for the first time.

White Birchwood Tree Centerpiece Ideas | Gold and White Winter Wonderland Wedding Reception Ideas | Tampa Bay Venue Kapok Special Events | Florist Lemon Drops Weddings & Events

Winter Wonderland Clearwater Indian Wedding | Kapok Special Events

I wanted everything to be white, sparkly, and iced out. We had minimal florals overall, but we lined the ceremony room and reception hall with lit-up white birchwood trees, a lot of candles, and a slight accent of classic white flowers with blush highlights. It was magical!

It was a challenge finding a decorator who could create my winter wonderland vision in my budget. Then we found Lemon Drops Weddings & Events; they had a beautiful showroom where I could actually see what they had in stock, and they had plenty of inventory to facilitate my dream wedding. They were very flexible with tweaking the proposal until it was perfect, and I was happy.

Romantic “Old Florida” Downtown St. Pete Wedding | The Vinoy

I didn't intentionally go into my vendor search wanting to combine my planner and florist. I interviewed planners and florists separately. When I interviewed Melanie, the owner of Lemon Drops Weddings and Events, I immediately fell in love with her story and felt like she was very down-to-earth and well-educated. It made the most sense financially and logistically to combine vendors so we would have one less vendor to coordinate with.

As for the arrangements, they spoke for themselves, stunning!
