Florals bring so much character, texture, and tone to a room. Budding with inspiration and personality, they blossom an ordinary day into a spectacular wedding day. It's a simple touch, yet one that radiates absolute elegance and romance.
Whether you prefer timeless, whimsical, or expressive flowers, we rounded up a list of the BEST 14 florists. Every bride has their own style and preference, so we're here to celebrate that and help you in your planning!
As mentioned in this blog, we ONLY feature the BEST vendors that we wholeheartedly TRUST. In fact, before vendors join our tribe, they must agree to these Code of Ethics vows.
When they sign-on with Forever Bride, they’re not just another listing we add to our website––they become family. And we take care of our family––we support, love, and trust each family member. We personally meet + chat with them over coffee, often work together at styled shoots, and interact with them on Instagram. We value, respect, and believe in each and every one of them.
And we also exist to help you––the bride––plan the wedding of your dreams without exceeding your budget. That’s why we ask EVERY vendor to offer an exclusive deal for our Forever Bride brides. All you have to do is sign up for free here and you’re all set for money-saving deals! Easy, right?
So, if you’re located in Minnesota, these are the TOP 14 local florists… individuals, teams, companies that you can trust with the highest quality, friendliness, and professionalism. Taking these top-notch Minnesota-based florists, our team has categorized each of them into specific categories (in no specific order) to match you with a floral designer that best fits your vision + style.
1. FRESH + TIMELESS
Wisteria Design Studio
Russell of Wisteria Design Studio is the type of guy everyone just LOVES. After we mentioned him on our Instagram story, we received so many replies of people saying how much they love him! Not only is he incredibly talented but he is super sweet and friendly. Russell has been in business since 1986, wonderfully curating bouquets that are fresh and timeless. His studio has won many awards and high praise from brides. Russell's background in theater and visual arts seeded his career in floral design.

5. 18+ YEARS OF DESIGN EXPERTISE

We have worked with Lesley Quan––owner and designer of Couture Fleur––numerous times over the years. Our first styled shoot with Lesley was at our ‘Boho Chic in an Apple Orchard’ shoot. She provided gorgeous roses, calla lilies and hydrangeas in the colorful floral arrangements, bouquets and floral crowns.
And just wait till you see this real wedding! Lesley created a soft, intimate, casual feel with a vintage twist that aligned perfectly in the bride's grandparents’ backyard. Lesley kept the floral colors neutral with touches of the patina effect using soft greens and blues.
We also needed silk flowers for our elegant + vintage styled shoot at the American Swedish Institute and Lesley came through, even with short notice. And look at those stunning silk flowers (pictured above), the bouquet doesn’t even look fake! Now that’s a floral designer who knows what she’s doing. With her 18+ years of design expertise and keen eye for detail, she’s your gal––whether that means silk or real flowers.

Aimee Sherrill of the Petal Cart started selling flowers three years ago out of a handmade Amish cart; today she has the most beautiful flower shop/event space you could ask for.

With nearly 20 years of hands-on floral design experience, she describes her floral design as a vintage bohemian.

11. STRONG EYE FOR DETAIL + DESIGN

There is something about flowers that Emily of Blossom Studio was always drawn to. As a kid and young adult, she always yearned for flowers. Here’s what she says: “When I would receive flowers from a boyfriend or loved one, I remember just staring at them, waiting for them to open, waiting for them to be at their peak of beauty and having a love relationship with them! So needless to say, I think I'm in the right profession! I love floral, I love texture, I love art and design! When I had other jobs in the past, I always longed to design and be creative. Now, I get to live in the design world and I get to make beautiful things for other people!”
I love relationships, my family and my faith are super important to me. I have a wonderful supportive husband, who helps me immensely and two beautiful children, who keep me young and on my toes! My favorite things to do are hang out with my family, go on walks, go to new restaurants, bike and play board games!
I am creative and I care deeply about my work. I want you to be overjoyed and absolutely in love with the product I deliver. I have a strong eye for design and have had the benefit of working for other talented and wonderful designers, including Lizie Anne Weddings as an assistant to a wedding planner and Ashley Fox Designs as a floral assistant.”
