What We Offer:
Wedding and Event Floral Design
What Inspired Us to Start Our Business is:
When I was a little girl, I always loved pulling pictures of beautiful bouquets out of Martha Stewart Weddings magazines. When it came time for me to get married, I naturally wanted to do my own wedding flowers. I started by doing my friends’ weddings and then their bridesmaids’ weddings, and 23 years later what started as a hobby is a full-time business.
We Love Being a Part of the Wedding Industry Because:
One of the things that I love about the wedding industry is that all of the vendors I work with frequently really love their job. There’s positivity and passion that spreads from vendor to vendor as all of the setups begin to come to life. Each vendor has their own part to play and when you stand back at the end of that to see the beauty that we created together it really motivates me and fulfills me as a designer.
What Makes Our Business Stand Out From Other Vendors Is:
We really love all things weddings! We spend lots of time with our couples going through every detail of what they might need for their wedding day. We keep in touch throughout the planning process as ideas may change, and we execute those details beautifully on their wedding day. We are always prepared to go the extra mile to make your day more than you dreamed it would be.
One Thing Most Couples Would Be Surprised to Know About Us Is:
I am a mother of 7 children, and I homeschool my youngest three. I am madly in love with my husband, and we have built a life that we love together. We are in the process of building a farm and homesteading on 37 acres with my sister and her family, and I can’t wait to grow a flower garden!
One of Our Non-Wedding Passions Is:
Aside from weddings, my recent passion has been learning about homesteading and farm life. There’s something so rewarding in growing your own food, something so peaceful about the quietness of your own land, and something about being fulfilled and passionate about everything you are doing in life. I believe when you are fulfilled and happy it really translates through your designs and work.

Vintage Tropical Anna Maria Island Destination Wedding | Beach House
I wanted someone who could create an elegant, timeless arrangement with a fun, whimsical twist. After taking a peek at the work of most of the florists in the Tampa Bay and Bradenton areas, Save The Date Florida‘s arrangements checked all my boxes. Danielle is a master at her craft, and the tropical theme was right in her wheelhouse.
Peach and Sage Boho Inspired Wedding | Mision Lago Estate
Our wedding day floral inspiration was a mix of rustic and bohemian vibes. Since our venue and ceremony spaces were outdoors, I wanted our floral arrangements to enhance the natural beauty already present rather than overshadow it.
Our wedding planner highly recommended their service, and after looking at their website portfolio, we felt that they were equipped to really bring our vision to life.
Save the Date Florida, blew me out of the water with what they created. It was absolute perfection and truly made our day so special. They took my ideas and made them unique in a way that complemented the venue and the rest of the décor throughout the wedding.

We knew florals were going to be such an important element on our wedding day that we wanted someone who was going to execute it beautifully and trust them with that.
Save the Date Florida was introduced to us by our planner, and we are so glad she recommended this team. If you look at their social media, you can see how unique and beautiful each arrangement is for any wedding theme. When we showed the owner, Danielle, our inspiration for the florals, she brought it to a whole new level. Save the Date Florida just did such a beautiful job with the florals. With that being one of the most important details of the wedding, we couldn't have asked for a better florist. Danielle has a talent, and we are so glad we chose her. We were in such amazement when we walked in and saw everything she did. Anytime I reflect back on pictures of the florals, I'm just falling in love all over again with them. Danielle and Save the Date Florida were an amazing team, and I am so glad we chose them.
