Testimonials


I was absolutely BLOWN AWAY with the flowers that Nancy created for our wedding. Initially when we met with her for our consultation, I had pictures of flowers that I liked, but didn’t really have a set idea. Nancy listened to what I wanted, saw what my vision was, and she created the most perfect bouquets and centerpieces I could have dreamed of. She also created an archway backdrop for our ceremony that was perfect and exactly what we wanted! I could not have asked for a better person to work with on the biggest day of my life. I would recommend Nancy to EVERYONE looking for an amazing and reasonably priced florist. There are not enough words to describe how incredible she really is. Her work and attention to detail are second to none! Nancy made our wedding day perfect! I had so many compliments on the arrangements and how beautiful they were- I was even told we had the most beautiful bouquets someone has ever seen. Even living hours away from Nancy, she was easy to communicate with via email and phone, and anytime I had any questions she was there to answer them quickly. I cannot say enough good things about Nancy. She’s AMAZING!!! – Kasia Sauciuc, October 2016

In addition, my sister booked Nancy for her June wedding as well! – Kelli Humbert, October 2016

Working with “Fancy Nancy” was such a great experience! We had our initial meeting with Nancy and I knew from the beginning that she was going to be wonderful to work with. She is professional, easy to talk to, willing to listen to your ideas and blend her input and expertise as needed. The best part was that she was extremely prompt in returning phone calls and email messages to confirm details that were important to share throughout the planning process. She was able to see exactly what I described and create the arrangements I was dreaming of. Everything was absolutely perfect and beautiful for the day of the wedding. She captured my vision and ensured that every detail was taken into account. The value was exceptional, and I would highly recommend her services to anyone planning a wedding in Central Illinois! She truly lives up to her name- we will always remember her for being the phenomenal “Fancy Nancy!” – Kelsey Zulz, May 2016
Nancy is an absolute delight to work with! Not only is her work amazing but her willingness to go above and beyond for her clients made her a joy to work with. Nancy took my vision and gave me 100x more than I expected. I absolutely LOVED my bouquet as well as my bridesmaids. The table arrangements were divine. Going into the process I was a pretty money conscious bride. Nancy took our budget and gave us fantastic creations. She provided me with many options within our budget all which looked fantastic. Nancy met with myself and my mom multiple times to go over the details. Many times I couldn’t attend the meetings because I was living in Cincinnati, a good 4.5 hours away from the wedding/reception site. I was nervous about the outcome, as any bride would be when planning a wedding from that far away. Despite my worries, Nancy ensured me that everything would turn out beautiful — and it did!! – Sarrah Marrochello, May 2016
Fancy Florals by Nancy was by far my favorite wedding vendor! I never knew how much I could love flowers until after seeing her beautiful creations on my wedding day. Nancy created my ceremony decor, reception centerpieces, and all of the bridal party flowers. She took my garden party vision and made it into a dream come true. I would highly recommend Nancy to any bride to be! – Kelly Hopkins, April 2016
Nancy helped my lantern centerpiece vision come to life and was always helping brainstorm ways to keep the bouquets within budget yet high quality! The greenery in the bouquets adds such great texture and looked great during my spring wedding. The flowers were very fresh and smelled amazing. Above all, her flexibility and warmth during the planning process were qualities that impressed my mother and me the most. – Amanda Gilpin, April 2016
Nancy is absolutely fabulous to work with! There were many things that I felt like I worried about for the wedding, but the flowers were definitely not one of them! I met with her a few times before the wedding and she took a lot of time to sit and discuss different options with me to make my vision for my flowers perfect! I had her do two different arrangements on the table for the centerpieces at the reception and they were better than I could have ever envisioned. The bouquets were great as well! I asked for bright colored spring flowers, and that is exactly what I got! Overall, she is very easy to work with, does fabulous work, and she is very reasonably priced! – Erica Saathoff, April 2016
Nancy is an amazing florist and person! She is organized, professional, creative, and one of the sweetest ladies you could ever hope to meet. My mom and and I drove to Fairbury to meet her and I could immediately tell she was not only talented, but someone I could count on to deliver the vision I had for my wedding flowers. She listened to my ideas and added her own creative style. Her attention to detail, excellent taste/style and dedication to her craft make her a true gem. The flowers could not have turned out more beautifully and I would recommend Fancy Florals by Nancy to anyone looking for truly magnificent floral creations. The pictures don’t lie – take a look and work with Nancy. You won’t be disappointed. She is the best! – Sarah Peters Hevner, December 2015
As a bride and all the many things I had to choose throughout the process of planning a wedding I could not have went more right with a decision when I chose this florist. She was so fun to work with. Very accommodating throughout the process especially on the wedding day. Every person I talked to complimented me on my flowers not only at my reception where all the decorations were but especially the big pieces that we part of our ceremony. If you, like me, do not know a lot about flowers, Nancy will work with you, get a feel for what you like and assemble something absolutely breathtaking. – Shelby Emberson Peterson, November 2015
WOW!!!! The flowers were amazing!! Breath taking and perfect. It really helped tie my theme together too. The flowers really made my wedding. You captured the heart and soul of harvest so well. Earthy elegant and organic. Everyone said I looked like a fairy princess bride:)!!! I really wish you could have seen my face when I saw everything. The breath left my body and tears swelled:) My bridesmaids were in awe. My bridesmaids are jealous they are out of state and can’t use you for their weddings!!! My flower crown could not have been more perfect and beautiful. I can honestly say the flowers were my favorite item of the day, aside from my husband! – Maggie Bever Zaino, October 2015
Nancy did an amazing job with floral decor for my September wedding. I used her for some simple ceremony florals, all of our bouquets and boutonnieres, and floral centerpieces at our reception. I was a little concerned about finding a florist that could execute my vision since many brides in Central Illinois are going for the “rustic chic” look these days, and I wanted something bold and modern. I started by emailing Nancy some photos of what I had in mind and discussing some preliminary thoughts, then my fiance and I met with her at her home to go over details. Our flowers turned out amazing – everything was exactly as I had imagined and we got tons of compliments from guests. Nancy even ended up making a silk version of the wrist corsages for one of my aunts with a severe flower allergy – you couldn’t even tell it was different from the others! Nancy thought of every little detail – the bouquets were beautifully wrapped in perfectly matching fabric, and the reception centerpieces looked perfect from top to bottom. Our photographer also commented on how fantastic the flowers photographed. I was a very “Type A” bride with a definite vision of what I wanted, but I know nothing about flowers – Nancy helped bring my vision to life, but I also think her expertise and artistic talents would help brides that are a little less certain about what they want. I would highly recommend meeting with her in-person if you can – we were able to see all of the glassware and accessories she had available (we ended up using a variety of glassware and containers and also some columns she had for our ceremony), and also get a very good sense of the kinds of flowers she had in mind for the arrangements. Overall, we had a great experience and I would highly recommend Nancy to other Central Illinois brides! – Erin Bradley Broholm, September 2015
I would absolutely recommend Fancy Florals by Nancy. I do not know much about flowers and do not consider myself to have a green thumb, but Nancy is extremely knowledgeable and helps you select the best flowers. She knows what flowers will complement your wedding colors and her flowers will enhance the ceremony and reception space. Her flower arrangements are vibrant, fresh, crisp, and of course beautiful! I received so many compliments about our flowers and she helped make my wedding day so special! – Amy Steidinger Daly, September 2015
Wow! Nancy did an absolute fantastic job with all of the florals for our wedding! We met a couple of times to discuss every detail and she kept in contact with me frequently over the months of planning to insure everything was perfect for our special day. Nancy truly goes above and beyond on her floral work and you can put all of your trust in her to design the floral pieces of your dreams for your special day. If you’re looking for a superb florist that won’t break your, budget Nancy is your person to talk with! – Sondra Monier Urish, August 2015
I could not have been happier with my wedding flowers! Nancy was so easy to work with. She was so accommodating and communicated very well (which is very important for a bride). I wanted lots of flowers at my wedding, so this was a very important aspect for me. Basically all of my decorations were flowers! I brought in pictures of what I liked, and Nancy was able to create everything from there. I had so many requests for her throughout the whole wedding planning process and she managed to do everything. She was insightful and really knew her stuff! When the wedding day came, my vision had been fulfilled. I highly recommend Fancy Florals by Nancy! – Caroline Loudon Roeschley, July 2015
If you’re looking for a talented, sweet, and accommodating florist, Fancy Florals by Nancy is the way to go! Nancy did an amazing job helping my visions for the wedding come to life! Not only is she very talented and offers a lot of ideas, she is also very personable and is willing to work within your budget. Of all of my wedding vendors, she was always one of the fastest to respond to questions or new ideas that I had as the planning process took place. All of the flowers turned out better than I could have imagined! Everything was fresh and stayed fresh all day…our bouquets even lasted for a few days after the wedding and we were able to enjoy them longer than the wedding day itself! I would highly recommend Fancy Florals by Nancy to anyone looking to work with a sweet and talented florist. -Emily Plattner Comberiate, June 20, 2015
Nancy was outstanding to work with! She took oodles of time to understand our vision, advise and educate us on flowers, and help us stay within our budget. Her communication was excellent. Her service was a 10 on a scale of 1 – 5 ūüôā And Our flowers were absolutely GORGEOUS!!! Exactly what we had pictured, and even better!! We took outdoor pictures in VERY hot weather before the wedding. Nancy happened to stop by the church and saw that a couple of the flowers in the brides bouquet were drooping just a bit. She took the bouquet, replaced flowers, and had it back to us before the ceremony. Definitely above and beyond. Nancy is an extremely talented and a joy person! We HIGHLY recommend Fancy Florals by Nancy. -Sherry Semlow June 13, 2015
Nancy was wonderful to work with! She was very professional and easy to speak with, and responded quickly to both phone and email. Considering the quality of her work, Fancy Florals by Nancy is a great value. I found her pricing to be very competitive. The level of care she put into both the customer relationship and also the floral arrangements was exceptional. I very much appreciated that Nancy respected my budget and even went as far as to suggest less expensive types of flowers that fit my desired style to allow me to stay within my budget. Nancy did a great job of asking the right questions to thoroughly understand my vision for my wedding and executed everything beautifully! Nancy created bridal and bridesmaid bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, centerpiece additions (flower petals, spray roses), and laurel garlands for my event. I received many compliments from my guests on her floral designs! -Krisina Snyder Ramsey April, 25, 2015
Nancy is so great at what she does and makes sure your flowers are perfect to fit the occasion. I went to several florists and Nancy is the only one that sat down with me and made suggestions and worked with me all the other places just told me to grab a book and tell them what I wanted. Nancy is very knowledgeable about what looks good together and what will work for what you are using the flowers for. I highly suggest choosing Fancy Florals by Nancy to do your next special event she is a true joy to work with and could not of been more satisfied. – Sarah Wurmnest May 29, 2015

Nancy went above and beyond for me. I found Nancy via The Knot and then started following her Facebook page. I fell in love with her work. My flowers were so beautiful they had everyone at the wedding talking. She even made me a throw bouquet on short notice because my wedding brain had forgot about it! She also drove almost 2 hours to meet me and deliver the flowers. I will definitely be referring her to others. -Jessica Proctor April 18, 2015

The flowers at Tiffany & Reid’s reception were so beautiful. Nancy ¬†did an amazing job adding fresh greenery and spring-like flowers to the birch wood and succulents that we wanted to use. Tiffany wanted to use succulents as part of the decorations, and Nancy did a wonderful job giving us pointers with the care of them. The wedding bouquets she made for the bridesmaids were gorgeous. She was very easy to visit with, work with, and replied quickly to any email questions that we would have. Her wedding florist service is wonderful. God bless you, Nancy! – Beth Steffen Jun. 12, 2014

Nancy went the extra mile to do my bouquets, babying some succulents I brought for her all the way from California, using some of her own for the bouts, storing the bouquets for me for a few days, meeting me whenever I needed her, dealing with some last minute bumps in the ordering. The end results were absolutely beautiful, and I was thrilled with the results; they were exactly what I had envisioned! Thanks Nancy, it was a pleasure working with you:). – Jenna Dotterer Jul. 2, 2013
