Personal Wedding Flowers on your day 

A little cheat-sheet on who gets what from your local wedding florist…

Bridal Bouquet 

Every bride gets the bouquet of her dreams. No holding back, no skimping. Let us know what your dream bouquet looks like and we will do our very best to make sure it’s everything and more! If you are 2 brides tying the knot, you certainly don’t have to match. If you are the only bride for the day, it’s all you girl, let’s make it count!

Bridesmaids Bouquets

You have lots of choices here. First thing to consider is how many bridesmaids there will be. If you have more than 3, we suggest keeping the wedding bouquets simple and sweet. Keep them in the small-medium size range. Less than 3 bridesmaids we can certainly go bigger and have more fun with them. Remember, they are standing at the alter with you so their dresses and their flowers are all part of the decor.

how do we get started?

Yay! You found us, and we're so glad you did! Please complete our Wedding Consultation Form which will immediately give us an overview of your floral needs and wishes. You will hear from us within 24 hours (usually way sooner) to get started!

Boutonnieres

Guys, be brave, this can be cool! There are so many ways to make this a great detail.

Groom and groomsmen all get a boutonniere, unless you’re not wearing jackets in which case…never mind. Our groom will have an added touch of some floral that his bride has in her bouquet. And if you are 2 Grooms saying “I Do”, your boutonnieres have to be extra awesome. Oh yah, and Dad’s get them too.

What about Grandfathers, Step Fathers, Uncle Bob, and your ex-step-uncle person? Don’t let this be weird. Here’s the rule, if they’re walking in the procession, give them a “bout”, or if you just love them like crazy and want to honor them, give him a “bout”! But not everybody has to have, nor wants, a “bout”. 

Mother’s Corsages or Posies

Times are-a-changing when it comes to the traditional corsage for Mom’s. We will of course make a lovely wrist corsage for the Mom’s who love them, but consider a slightly more contemporary option of a petite posy – something that is around the same size as a wrist corsage, but Mom can hold it instead of it being tied to their wrist.

What about Grandmothers, Step Mothers, Aunt Bess, etc.? Again,  if they’re walking in the procession or you just want to make sure they are honored, give them flowers…if not, you’re good.

your beautiful ceremony florals?

Flower girl Crowns +/or Petal Baskets

We know she’s cute, but if she’s under 3 years old, lets keep it real right now. Let’s put an adorable floral crown on her head and have her walk hand in hand with either an older child or an adult. If she’s a little older, lets add flower girl baskets of petals and let her twirl and sprinkle to her hearts content.

Fur Babies

More and more, our couples are including their 4-legged babies in their weddings, and we couldn’t be happier about this, after-all.. your fur baby is your first born!! That said, dogs are well known and proud nudists and prefer to make their appearances in as little as possible. Skip the tuxedo and allow us to make a size appropriate floral garland or collar posy to honor your ever-so-deserving hound. You’ll definitely notice a little extra spring in their step! Woof!

    5 star rating It kills me that it took this long to write a review. But better late than never!

    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!

    5 star rating We had the pleasure of doing business with Lilla Bello as they were the florists/designers for our wedding in August. My wife found them after doing extensive research online and meeting with a couple other florists her friends had recommended. We met Tasha and the team at Lilla Bello and after our first meeting knew we were in good hands. Having high quality beautiful flowers was top of the list for my wife and their product is incredible! Let's face it, there are a lot of great florists in and around the LA area but I think what sets Lilla Bello apart is just how much they cared about making our  wedding so great. Everyone we dealt with had a positive attitude and very helpful in giving us ideas and working with our budget. 5 stars for sure for Lilla Bello and a life long customer and now friend for sure!

    5 star rating 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).  

    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!!!

    5 star rating 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.

    So if you really want to give something uniquely beautiful and utterly impressive, I can't recommend Toby at Lila Bello Studio enough!!

    5 star rating Working with Toby and the team at Lilla Bello Studio is both painless and incredibly fun. Toby is the perfect person to brainstorm with who will then get back to you with multiple ideas at multiple price points based on a combination of her expertise and the information you give her. And her team, whether they are just delivering something for you or actually creating centerpieces and decor on site, is always prepared and wiling to go the extra mile to make you look great. And I know that firsthand.

    5 star rating If I could give 10 stars I would!

    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. 🙂

    5 star rating 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.

    5 star rating Our wedding photos are beyond gorgeous thanks to Toby's gorgeous designs and florals!!!!!  

    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!!!!!

    5 star rating 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!

    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!
