5,000 Brides Agree, Tiger Lily Tops Among Wedding Florists

Charleston, SC, July 11, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Tiger Lily, the upscale Charleston florist catering to the Lowcountry’s most unforgettable weddings, recently won high praise yet again -- this time from 5,000 of the most discriminating judges: brides and wedding planners. The readers of The Bride's Book, the Southeast’s only award-winning bridal magazine, chose Tiger Lily as top wedding florist for 2008.

The magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards recognize Carolina wedding businesses that excel in service and quality. This year, more than 5,000 brides nominated their must-have vendors in the Carolinas, describing their wedding-day experiences via letters, faxes, phone calls and e-mails. The winners will be spotlighted in the fall-winter issue of The Bride's Book due out October 1.

Tiger Lily’s owners, Manny and Clara Gonzales, believe that the company’s commitment to superior service — and insistence on the freshest, highest quality flowers and designs — are the reasons they have so many satisfied clients. Tiger Lily emphasizes communication throughout the planning process, taking the time to sit down with brides and event planners to truly understand their goals and ideas.

“The Readers’ Choice award means so much because it comes directly from brides and event planners who know our work,” says Manny Gonzales. “For us, every wedding is a Moment of Truth. It’s a wonderful feeling to know that our flowers, our service and our special attention contributed to the happiest day of their life. This kind of recognition encourages all of us to keep finding new ways to wow our clients.”
