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.

Save the Date Florida Reviews from Marry Me Tampa Bay Couples:
Marry Me Tampa Bay curates the below reviews from real couples whom we've personally interviewed. As Tampa Bay's most trusted wedding planning resource, these reviews are 100% accurate and aren't created by fake accounts.
I wanted someone who was willing to do something unique and fun. I knew what I wanted, and I was set on a certain tropical look. I specifically chose Save the Date Florida after seeing Danielle's previous work and after a long phone conversation. We spoke about everything I envisioned for my big day, and she was willing to make it all happen while also allowing changes to be made up to two weeks before our wedding.
I’m glad we discussed this because two weeks before, I changed up my arch, and she had expedited a half-moon arch to make my vision come to life. Danielle went above and beyond for my flowers, and they were so beautifully put together. She made my big day very unique with her touch, and I would choose her all over again.
We searched for creativity, quality, and good value for the money. My floral inspiration was colorful, tropical-inspired, and Save The Date Florida absolutely nailed it!
They also did amazing greenery on the top of our clear tent, as well as a beautiful monstera frame around the tent entrance. I saw quite a few of our guests stopping for photos there!
Save the Date Florida was economical and really helped capture our vision for the wedding as well. Danielle was compassionate and understanding, and she was awesome to work with!
I looked for a florist who understood my vision but at the same time had enough experience to offer suggestions on taking it to the next level!
Danielle Zechmann with Save The Date Florida was amazing at communicating and a pleasure to work with. She was confident she could make a large floral chandelier to go over the dance floor and a continuous centerpiece for the head table. It took 275 hydrangeas to make!
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.
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.
