Wedding Flowers Consultation
You just got engaged, you’re jumping onto Pinterest like it’s going out of style, and you’re researching every vendor in town! We love your excitement and want you to have the best experience possible.
Fill out our Wedding Consultation Form (someone will be in touch with you within 24 hours, but usually much sooner, to set up our first consultation).
Step 2 – Phone Consultation
(set aside 10-20 minutes)
Our first consultation will be by telephone where we will get an overview of your upcoming wedding wishes. You may have 1 picture or 100 pictures to share with us at this stage and whatever it is, it’s perfect! We will have a quick hello to get to know each other, and have a very broad strokes conversation about style, colors, flowers and budget. Since every one of our weddings is highly customized, we do not have pre-set “wedding packages” (blach!), but we can give you a general sense of pricing based on your needs.
Assuming everything on our phone consultation felt in alignment with what you were expecting, we will then invite you in to meet!
Step 3 – In-Person Consultation
(set aside 60-90 minutes)
Here’s where the real fun starts! We already have a sense of who you are and what you’re looking for, which has given us an opportunity to prepare some design ideas for you! Our Santa Monica design studio is also where our beautiful showroom of rental items resides. A variety of centerpiece vessels, candle holders and lanterns are all at our fingertips to start exploring. In this meeting we will begin delving into specific designs as well as gathering up all your logistical details such as guest count, bridal party, etc.
Following this meeting, we will prepare a detailed proposal for you, line itemising every expense, so that you may add, subtract or edit easily. Give us a day or two to get this turned around as we are considering everything from your florals (checking availability) to your budget goals to make sure everything is just right.
We love you, You love us, what now?
You book in. Sounds scary but it’s not. By booking in, we are simply promising to work together. Every last detail is editable (additions and subtractions) up until 2 weeks prior to your wedding date, so don’t worry about everything being perfect. You are simply securing the date with us. From this point on, we are at your disposal. If you have guest count changes, design changes, or any questions whatsoever, we are here for you!
I've frequently used Lilla Bello for countless arrangements for holidays, events and Mother's Day. My experience has been nothing short of perfect.Natasha L. 4/28/2016
Most recently, Lilla Bello created the most stunning floral arrangements for my wedding. I was insanely specific about a wild, unstructured feel and my preferred color palette. My bouquet was the most delicate bunch of chamomile wrapped in gorgeous silk ribbon. Lilla Bello created a gorgeous suspended arch of florals that everyone was gushing over. Our tables featured delicate bud vases of different heights with florals in a palette whimsical white/green/hints of blush.
Lilla Bello clearly understood my vision and was able to make it come to fruition. Thank you so much Toby and Tasha for your attention to every detail and making my wedding day so beautifully magical. I highly recommend Toby and her team at Lilla Bello for any of your floral needs as they will surpass your expectations every time.
Lilla Bello is a hidden treasure worth finding! My first experience with Toby (owner and master floral designer) was for Mother's Day. I told her my mother's favorite flower and she made the most beautiful and unique arrangement incorporating that flower. Mom loved it!Lisa C. 12/30/2009
I have requested florals since and Toby has always amazed me with truly stunning arrangements and the recipients loved them!
I had an incredibly great experience with Lilla Bello Studio! So great, in fact, that I registered for Yelp just to write this review. I was a June '09 bride with a realistic budget (read: closer to normal, less close to what other brides seem to do,) but, despite my budget, I wanted a dream wedding that would make jaws drop. (In an elegant way, of course.) 🙂Emily F. 3/02/2010
From our first meet, she had me at "of course I can do that," and I had a mad floral crush. I showed her pictures of flowers from a celebrity wedding, and Toby not only interpreted these arrangements to reflect our bridal style, but she made them even more stunning. Every single floral detail of the wedding was stunning, from bouquet to chair garlands, floral pomanders to table arrangements. Drool worthy! Flower crush was right.
The best bit? Toby delivered a drop dead gorgeous wedding. You read right: DROP DEAD GORGEOUS! People are still talking about the wedding flowers, and I still daydream about them. sigh.
So if you want to hire someone for a wedding or another event with an exquisite taste level, and all within your budget, stop right now and book her before all the celebrities do. Don't let this vendor get away.
Oh, and did I tell you she's a total sweetheart? Can it get any better than Lilla Bello? You're right, it can't.
P.S. BTW, it turned out that our wedding was featured in a magazine, and I am confident that it's because of two things: Our wedding planner and our fab florist LILLA BELLO.
Our wedding photos are beyond gorgeous thanks to Toby's gorgeous designs and florals!!!!!SS N. 6/14/2011
Lilla Bello designed our entire wedding decor and our wedding turned out to be nothing short of breathtaking. Our centerpieces and reception hall decor were lush, bright, smelled sooooo good, and were of course, gorgeous.
My bouquet was my absolute favorite. OMG It was beyond stunning and looks amazing in all the photos. It was what I was most picky about besides my hair and Toby knew exactly what to design when I just gave her a few hints of what I wanted.
Toby is a floral/design/wedding PRO and Lilla Bello is the best in the industry!!!!!
Toby designed the most beautiful bouquet and floral arrangements for my wedding. My guests and I were all blown away. I gave Toby an idea of what I was looking for and she truly outdid herself and perfectly executed my vision. I couldn't recommend Lilla Bello more highly for any special occasion. Thank you for making our big day that much more beautiful and special.Jennifer C. 11/05/2016
Toby is as kind and helpful as a person can be. She put together a rush bouquet for us (rush as in ready in a couple of hours) and was so unbelievably accommodating to our needs. Thank you Yelp for helping me find her, and thank you Toby for such amazing attention.N S. 2/18/2010
You will NOT be disappointed with Lilla Bello.
If I could give 10 stars I would!Natalie D. 6/22/2017
I am lucky enough to be a neighbor to Lilla Bello and have used them more than 50 times over the past year and a half. I have never been disappointed, and always get the most kind and flattering thank you notes from the recipients of their arrangements. The owner/staff/employees are the friendliest people with impeccable taste and quality. Similar to my star rating, if I had all they money in the world, I would buy literally everything in their store. It is gorgeous.
On top of that, their arrangements are exotic and unique, and they are very reasonably priced, responsive and punctual. I guess by now you get the point -- I am an absolute super fan and recommend this shop to anyone and everyone. 🙂
Lilla Bello is one of the most professional top notch florist I have worked with. Toby (owner) did my flowers for my wedding and they surpassed all my expectations. The number one thing to women are flowers and she hit the ball out of the park. She did my flowers for my rehearsal dinner and wedding. I could not have asked for anything more. She made my special day so magical and memorable. When it came to my flowers I had nothing to worry about. I would recommend her to everyone I know. I can't say enough good things about her and her staff. Beyond helpful and professional and their work is perfection!!!Danielle M. 2/15/2012
I was very impressed w/ the photos of Lilla Bello's designs I had seen on Yelp, plus the rave reviews from previous clients. then I was impressed w/ Tasha of Lilla Bello from the very beginning---she immediately answered my previous evenings' email when she opened the studio the next morning!!! (I had been waiting for an answer from another area florist for 3+ weeks).Cathie L. 7/05/2016
Tasha was quick to address each one of my questions from many miles away (Memphis, Tennessee). soon I could see I had found "the floral designer" for our wedding rehearsal dinner, & my heart was set at ease.
I wanted tropical/Hawaiian colors---fuchsia, tangerine, & lime in leaf-lined glass vases. I also needed extra greenery to add texture to the landscape design. thankfully, I had Pinterest photos to help w/ my ideas.
even though I had not met Tasha face-to-face, I believed I could trust her to do what she said she could & would do---the proof was in the gorgeous photo after photo of the lush flowers & in the reviews of loyal & happy clients. so I signed the contract & paid her. the flowers exceeded my expectations, of course!!!
Tasha delivered the flowers at exactly the time she promised, w/ the greenery I had requested. the flowers were so fresh & fragrant & lush & gorgeous!!! (the bouquets lasted over 7 days!!!) I was so happy & proud to share them w/ the grandmothers, the mother-of-the-bride, the sister-of-the-bride, & special friends. I told everyone Tasha from Lilla Bello in Santa Monica designed the flowers!!! I am so happy to have a new friend in Santa Monica!!!
Lilla Bello provides the most exquisite flowers in LA! Toby is a dream to work with and time after time delivers. I am an event professional that has worked with Toby and the Lilla Bello team for years, and can vouch that they are top-notch. Look no further, you will definitely be thrilled!Sara P. 10/29/2018
I have known Toby personally for several years and she is always my go-to for floral arrangements when I need something special delivered for a birthday or something like that. When it came time to decide on who was going to curate all of my floral arrangements for our wedding day, I didn't think twice - Lilla Bello it was! From my incredible bouquet to my now step daughter's flower crown to the amazing flowers on our wedding cake, I would not have changed a thing and have received so many compliments from even the toughest critics. Thank you Toby and Tasha for making my special day truly shine and be a forever memory in my mind.Lisa H. 6/14/2017
I have worked with Toby for years! She has made floral arrangements for parties at my home, I've used her to send flowers to others, and I worked with her on my daughter's Bat Mitzvah, not just for flowers, but for the table decor as well. She is impeccable taste, and everything she produces is beautiful. She's the nicest person and so easy to work with!Ashly S. 10/29/2018
LB exceeded my expectations in every way! Toby and her team are awesome, they totally understood my vision while still offering their expertise to ensure we had the best end result. In the end, everything was perfect! The arch was glorious and the bouquets and centerpieces were breathtaking. Thank you for making my dream wedding a reality! You guys are the best!!Chelsea T. 9/15/2017
Creative, professional, kind and always exceeding expectations. We have had only exceptional experiences working with Lilla Bello and they continue to deliver for us even in the face of many incredibly unusual requests and specifications. Toby is not only truly talented but a true joy to work with. We will continue to look forward to future opportunities to work with Lilla Bello - Toby and her team are a treasured find.Kristin B. 10/30/2018
I was deciding between a few different florists for my wedding, and I'm so thankful I chose Lilla Bello. Toby was fantastic and so easy to work with -- she was kind, responsive, dependable, extremely talented and creative. I described the look and feel I wanted and showed her some inspiration photos from Pinterest, and she completely nailed the entire vision, bringing every detail to life. Everything was stunning from the tablescapes, to the bouquets, to the chuppah, it totally exceeded my expectations! I would highly recommend them for any occasion, and would hire them again myself in a heartbeat. Thank you Toby and team for going above and beyond to make all of my wedding floral dreams come true!!Rachel K. 4/29/2019
Toby at Lilla Bello Studio always makes me look good! I always get complements on what I send and then they become Lilla Bello clients as well! What she puts together is always stunning and just perfect! I have both sent and received from Lilla Bello and I am thankful to be on either side of the deal. Their online shop is also a total go-to for gifts! especially for babies. yay!michel w. 7/31/2009
The BEST Floral Design Studio in LA!!! I was first introduced to Toby at Lilla Bello Studio when I was the recipient of one of Toby's little floral sculptures. After that I went to Toby when my cousin gave birth to her first child I ordered an arrangement from Toby, that after 3 years, my cousin still talks about. She's been making me look good ever since. Toby has a wonderful way of talking you through what you need, even for someone as clueless as I am when it comes to flowers. As a single guy, Toby is invaluable. She's not only helped me for requests in LA but in other states as well.David R. 2/15/2010
So if you really want to give something uniquely beautiful and utterly impressive, I can't recommend Toby at Lila Bello Studio enough!!
I'm so glad we chose Lilla Bello to do the flowers at my daughter's recent wedding at the Bel Air Bay Club! Toby understood the look and feel my daughter was aiming for, and fulfilled her vision beyond our imagination. The chuppah and the rest of the setting for the ceremony were beautiful, romantic and bountiful without being over the top. The bouquets were stunning, and the little succulent boutonnieres were perfect, each wonderfully unique. (In fact, these little creations were one of the things that made us fall in love with and choose Lilla Bello!) The reception tables were truly lovely -- elegant, creative and the perfect combination of classic and organic. As we look through the photos now, the flowers once again take our breath away. Working with Toby was fun and easy. We look forward to working with her again in the future and highly recommend Lilla Bello for any occasion!Amy K. 4/27/2019
This is a long overdue review about this amazing florist. I found them from an internet search. I live in another state and my daughter, who was turning 21, lives in the LA area. I spoke with one of the designers who listened and helped interpret what I wanted to send, and I was thrilled. The flowers arrived at her work, on time with no issues, and they are one of the most beautiful arrangements I've ever seen. (And for sure the best I've ever sent.) They are on the expensive side but worth every penny. I just wished I lived closer so I could order more often. (the brain of a busy Mom...I did actually already post a review but that is how much I was impressed by their work. I order and have ordered so many flowers through the years and I have never posted a review about any before this. Can't wait to need to order more in the LA area:) Pardon my repeat but you can never compliment too much!)Jan M. 2/04/2015
It kills me that it took this long to write a review. But better late than never!Jamie C. 9/07/2018
Toby and her crew are absolutely incredible! I came to Toby with an idea in my head of what I wanted my wedding to look like and she made it come to life 1000x better than I could have ever imagined. She did a great job dealing with a stressed bride and family members with opinions and was great to work with from start to finish. The amazing flowers and out of this world chuppah are still talked about by guests a year and a half later and I'm sure for years to come. Can't thank Toby and staff enough!
It's been three years now, that I've been ordering flowers and arrangements from Lilla Bello. I've seen two receptionist come and go, and really liked them all! I've ordered birthday flowers, congrats arrangements, Thanksgiving centerpieces, get well soon orchids, and so much more over the years. Always a pleasant, easy interaction and the flowers are absolutely gorgeous. Thank you, Lilla Bello!Margie R. 6/18/2019
I desperately needed beautiful flowers and a trustworthy company in a pinch!! Called at 10am, and the most BEAUTIFUL flowers were delivered by 12:30pm. Not only are the notes handwritten and the flowers designed just right, but the delivery updates were frequent.Paige P. 10/31/2018
Can't wait to use again.
I've ordered flower arrangements twice from Lilla Bello for my company, and have been blown away by the outstanding service and breathtaking arrangements. I truly mean breathtaking. Last week we gifted a jewel-toned flower arrangement to our head creative for her birthday. She had tears streaming down her face when I gave it to her!Margie R. 8/01/2016
When you order from their website for delivery, you can choose from a few price points (the lowest, $75, was huge so I can't even imagine the beauty of the more expensive ones), then you choose the color scheme (they are all inspiring), and then the vase style (there's a florists choice option). You can also make specific requests for flowers and write notes to the florist.
For my first order, I went with the delivery option. The delivery was quick and went smoothly. The second order was a pick up, and I am so lucky that it was! The shop is a bit confusing to find in the Bergamot Station area, but they walked me through it (and there's a big map when you drive in to the parking area). Their shop is absolutely gorgeous! It's like what a fairy's dreams look like. I can't wait to go back for more orders!
