Does Not Deliver What He Promises... Horrific!!!

TERRIBLE! TERRIBLE! TERRIBLE!!! I don't know where to begin....I recently got married, and Dante Flowers & “Designs", a.k.a Hamlet was “recommended” to me. When I first met with Hamlet, he began to boast about his abilities as a "DESIGNER" and that he is not just an everyday florist. He actually scrutinized the work of other florists, stating that they only create round typical centerpieces, unlike him, who creates unique designs that fit the vision of the bride. We sat down and I informed him of what I wanted, he drafted my backdrop and centerpieces to make sure that we were both on the same page. Prior to my wedding, he disappeared...apparently he went on a trip without notifying me that he has left the country and when he would return. His lack of communication was terrible...you can imagine how stressful this was for me. I was frantically trying to communicate with him. Four days prior to my wedding, he returned from his trip, and still did not contact me. After countless attempts on my end, I was finally able to reach him. When speaking with him to sort out the details for the flowers, his constant response to me was that he was tired and he just gotten back from a trip. He had promised and drafted a backdropped, which he failed to deliver. The centerpieces that he had drafted was not what he delivered…he delivered your "typical round" centerpieces. He does not provide a contract hence I could not hold him responsible for anything. If you do business with him. If after reading this and you still choose to do business with him, I recommend that you draft a contract with him, specifying every single detail of what he is to do and what he is charging you for! He was to do the flowers for my house (the brides house)…last minute he tells me he has too much to do and will not be able complete the work for my house. Last minute I had to find a florist to decorate my house. The day before my wedding, he would not answer my calls. Oh, and btw, he has a notice from the city posted on his door informing him he is not permitted to operate a business from his home. I would NOT RECOMMEND Dante Flowers & Designs, aka Hamlet! UNPROFESSIONAL, CARELESS, PRICEY, and DOES NOT DELIVER what he has charged you for!!!

Horrible Service

I went to this vendor as one of my first choices for wedding flowers. I called him and set up a meeting. He asked me to come to his house. It was a little difficult communicating with him b/c he didn't seem to speak English and it was hard for me to describe everything in Armenian, but I did my best. He described what he can do for me and showed me some pictures. He is a very quiet man though and dialogue again was difficult. After visiting some other vendors, I returned to him again for a second meeting to discuss financials and more details. He agreed to do my flowers and agreed on the financials and said I would get an email with my contract in the next week. I waited for it and never got it. I contacted him several times and asked for the contract and never received a response!! How on earth do you waste a customer's time, meet with them, tell them you will send them a contract and just never follow through. Very unprofessional. I still don't understand what happened but I'm glad I moved on and found an amazing florist. I just wish he didn't waste my time. Kinda glad it didn't work out though b/c who knows, he may have not shown up on the wedding day considering that he disappeared on me after our meeting and promising to send me a contract to sign.

Beautiful

Dante Flowers created gorgeous center pieces for my engagement party. Guests asked me all night who my florist was. Hamlet helped me from the beginning and we worked collaboratively on creating the perfect red rose centerpieces. His knowledge and experience are much appreciated. He helped guide me toward what would look best and away from ideas that just wouldn't work. He provided me what he promised and I look forward to creating more beautiful flower arrangements with him soon!

Job well done!!!

First of all I want to thank Dante Flowers team. They did an amazing job for my wedding. Everything was just right and you went beyond my expectations, from the reception hall to the church even the kavori basket was beautifully arranged. truly there are no words to describe the service, and honesty that I experienced with Dante Flowers. Every attendee were asking about the flowers and saying how everything is elegant and beautiful. You will many recommendations from me. Not only you have a creative eye and touch you are also very kind and honest. Thanks Again Dante Flowers. A+++

Breaks My Heart

It really breaks my heart to write a bad review because Hamlet was very nice, friendly and seemed very excited about doing the flowers for my wedding. However, the final product he delivered was NOTHING like the sample he created or the promises he made. He insisted that I was very easy to work with and he liked my original ideas. He made the perfect sample.. I couldn't believe how beautiful it was going to be. Imagine my surprise when I got to the hall and saw an abomination of my dream. The centerpieces looked cheap, flimsy and exactly like what I had told him I DON'T like, and the head table looked like a train wreck.. just a collection of white vases with a hodgepodge of flowers stuffed into them... no rhyme, no reason. The flowers are the church ceremony were a joke, tiny little bundles held together by a single cheap ribbon. He hadn't even left flower petals for my flower girls to scatter as they walked down the aisle. The only things I liked were the bridesmaid bouquets. I never argued about price, never even asked for a discount. I was willing to pay him anything he asked for if he could only create the unique centerpieces I asked for. He has great ideas, vision and taste. Too bad he wasn't able to transform them into reality for my wedding.

Perfection!

My husband I am were simply amazed by the beauty of the flower arrangements and decorations for our wedding on 2/2/2013. The hand bouquets were gorgeous! The flowers at the church were classy and elegant, and the centerpieces at the reception hall were breathtaking. We especially loved the two different styles of centerpieces that Hamlet brought to life through his creativity. All in all Hamlet surpassed all of our expectations and we will definitely use his service in the future! Thanks again Hamlet jan!

Sincerely,

Christina & Mike

Don't promise something you cannot deliver!

Where do I begin. First, let me say how disappointed I was with my engagement flowers. There was no creativity or work put into his work.. The flowers were not fresh and overall the work lacked beauty, which he had PROMISED he was going to deliver. Everyone was telling me how bad of a job the florist had done with the flowers. I was very upset, because I expected more from Dante flowers. He has promised he was going to deliver my vision and that I had nothing to worry about. I usually do not write reviews, but this time It's a must because I cannot stand when people brag about their work and what they can do but yet are NOT able to deliver!

Dante is the Best!

There is no words for Hamlet's work he is really talented, amazing, friendly, creative, AMAZING SERVICE!! I went to him a week before my engagement and we planned everything in less than a hour. He made me fell so comfortable and confident that everything will look amazing and he did more than he said he would. His prices were really good and his style wasn't like your typical Armenian style. His arrangements are very elegant, abstract and just beautiful. There is not 1 thing I can say he wasn't good in. I cant wait until I see how he makes my wedding so gorgeous. DANTE YOUR THE BESTTT!! Thank you for your hard work and wonderful arrangements for my engagement

Amazing

Hired Dante Flowers for my sons christening this past weekend and I am so thrilled with the outcome. Hamlet went above and beyond what was promised. I've hired some of LA's top florists, armenian and nonarmenian, and he was the BEST I've ever worked with, hands down.

Dante Flowers Is The Definition Of Beauty

Dante flowers was responsible for taking my image of a morracan theme bridal shower and making it into a reality. Hamlet is the most creative,unique,and exquisite florist I have ever had the pleasure to work with. His ideas are so one of a kind,that everyone is speechless when they enter the room. He is a wonderful person to work with, and if you want to have the most beautiful,breath taking special event of any sort, I recommend Dante Flowers with no questions asked. I can't thank you enough Hamlet, and I can't wait for you to design the winter wedding of my dreams.

Best Florist: Amazing Experience

Dante Flowers was responsible for the floral designs for our wedding that was on September 18,2010. In a word their design, use of colors and expertise shown was exquisite. We were amazed at the beauty and special touches shown, it was a magical experience which helped transform the wedding hall into a really special ballroom. My wife and I saw how beautiful the flowers looked at he house, church, and ballroom.
If you are planning a wedding or special event, Dante Flowers is the only florist that should be trusted. Great job guys!!

Lavish and sophisticated work / Baptism 06/13/10

I want to thank Hamlet for the exquisite work he did on our daughters baptism. Every person that walked into the hall was blown away with the unique centerpieces and candy bar. He is incomparable to any florist that I have ever met or seen. The candy bar was indescribable. I was so sick of the typical candy favors on each plate that I decided to do a candy bar for the baptism and was worried how it would look. It was like artwork. His imagination with the beauty of the natural world to create energetic color palettes, sensuous textures and architectural shapes is incredible. I can't explain how beautiful it looked. Thank you Hamlet jan for everything you did and the extra work you put for the event. I know you deserve soooooo much more then what you charged. Once again, from the bottom of my heart I want to thank you for perfect work.
