I have used Simply Elegant many times for catering though my work. While planning my wedding this past year, I had contact them to get quotes on catering, and to my surprise they also do wedding flowers. Now, being the procrastinator that I am, I left my flower purchase until the very end and not much left to spend on them either! After many emails back and forth with Sharon, she went above and beyond my expectations and saved me loads of money, while not compromising on the quality to get the flowers that I needed for myself, my husband, 8 people in the wedding party, parents and grandparents. I believe these flowers really added the special touch (and pop of colour) that would have been missing, and my husband and I could not be happier with the outcome.I continue to use their catering whenever I can through work, and would highly recommend them to anyone one looking for exceptional quality, reasonable price and friendly staff wanting to help with any request you might have and then going over and beyond what is expected.Thank you again to all the staff (and especially Sharon) for making our Wedding Day extra special!April and Dana Koch

Simply Elegant did a fantastic job with the florals at our gala - they were open to our outside-of-the-box ideas and make our vision a reality. They were prompt and friendly while setting up, and even picked everything up again afterwards. Thanks, Jade!

"I like to call her the wedding fairy"I had the privilege to have Simply Elegant manage our wedding. This business is comprised of a team of extremely talented professionals that will truly treat you nothing short of a princess or a prince.Our wedding was a large wedding of 600 guests! I had a vision of a Parisian glamour themed wedding and was very worried a size this large of a wedding would quickly turn into a nightmare. Let me tell you, I was wrong!Enter the Wedding Fairy, Sharon Barwick and Simply Elegant owner, Robert Virda.Sharon is everything you would dream a wedding planner to be. She is empathetic, a great listener, an excellent problem solver (she actually foresees problems before they occur) and an extremely talented artist all in one. Her approach is so refreshing, she will not let you panic, provides creative solutions and is always there to listen to any concern you have, no matter how many you have!Sharon designed my floral including my bouquet, my bridesmaids’ bouquets, the groomsmen's boutonnieres, floral at the venue, tables decor, cake table, our wedding party table and much more. All this while providing ways to cut on cost without compromising our vision. Did I mention we had 600 guests?Sharon and Rob were there for us the entire time helping us plan and providing us with valuable insight. They also learned about our culture and how to address everyone in our family.On our big day, Rob and Sharon had become a part of the family. Rob came and congratulated us and we felt like we were in great hands.Sharon was there reminding me to enjoy every moment, look up and smile while going down the stairs and walk with grace, she helped us stick to our schedule to the minute. Really she was my angel guardian that day.Due to my outfit changes we had a tight schedule, she made sure everyone was where they needed to be at the right time and let me tell you; that is no easy task when there are this many individuals to manage!She even managed my aunt who came from overseas and only spoke French! Yes, Sharon speaks French as well :)I could honestly go on and on about how amazing Rob and Sharon are as well as their talented team who always smiled when they saw us and treated us like family.If you are thinking about Simply Elegant for your wedding, don’t hesitate. It will be the best decision you made after getting married of course :)Cheers!Feriel

If you sincerely want to enjoy the experience of your own wedding, please hire Sharon Barwick for your own wellbeing. Believe me, I never care to write reviews online, but I know I am doing future brides a favour by telling everyone else that she is a “wedding fairy godmother.”I mean, where do I start? She is incredibly intuitive. I was shocked how she “got” my vision in an instant, and she could finesse the details seamlessly. She is hyper-organized even for my standards— and yes, that’s saying a lot. She’s also so darn honest. Even when everyone else says your lipstick looks “stunning” she can spot how you might look a little “off” and kindly help you achieve the look you know you want deep down inside. And get this, with her expertise, Sharon even saved me money while we were planning the décor and floral arrangements. Did I mention she stayed under budget?Having said all that, I ultimately I love her because she innately has a good, vibrant, and sincere energy to her. I think that is essential for every wedding. My entire family fell in love with her. That’s why I made sure her picture is part of my wedding album. I just wished I hired her when I first planned the wedding. She made this horrid planning experience fun! Yes, I said it, it was fun with Sharon!Anyway, I am so grateful she serendipitously fell into my life. Now I am paying it forward by introducing Sharon to all of you. Good luck!

Simply Elegant catered our wedding reception last Saturday, the staff was exceptional and even though it was a small event made every effort to make it perfect for us. The flowers, both ceremony and reception were beautiful and we got many compliments. We had a cocktail menu, everyone said the food was delicious and that they couldn’t eat another bite! Thanks to Jade and Peter who were very helpful and prompt to answer my many emails.

How much will my flowers cost?

Your investment in flowers depends on your taste, the type of flowers, etc. Flowers purchased during peak floral times like Valentine’s Day, Christmas and Mother’s Day can increase your costs by 30%.

Using flowers in season can help reduce costs, although many are regularly shipped in from the USA, South America and Holland.

Do I need to match the flowers with my bridesmaid’s dresses?

No, as it is better to accent the dresses from a camera’s point of view – not blend in.
