We were confident that Marilyn would provide us with beautiful flowers on our wedding. Well she and her wonderful assistant did not disappoint! All our arrangements were Jaw-dropping gorgeous and many guests inquired who we hired.
Marilyn provided excellent customer service, expertise, and was so organized. We can’t thank her and her team enough for making our day so special and hassle-free. Please do not hesitate to hire 19 Melrose Flower Studio for your event.

The flowers were way beyond what I expected and my daughter was so in love . Thank you so much Marilyn for adding that extra beauty to our wedding day!
Marilyn was lovely to work with and we got exactly what we had envisioned in our wedding flowers.
The bouquets were absolutely stunning (I actually preserved some of mine in a frame) and I would 100% recommend her work for any floral needs!
Just wanted to say how beautiful the flowers were for my wedding yesterday!
Every single guest and bridesmaid commented on how gorgeous they were! The wrist corsages were beautiful as well!
We found Nineteen Melrose Flower Shop (Marilyn) through Wedding Wire. I felt Marilyn’s designs matched what I was hoping to have prepared for our wedding. We connected with Marilyn through video chats, and it proved to be an excellent process. Marilyn easily pulled floral options and designs to give us a clear idea of what she could make for us. We had to pivot during the wedding planning process - our first wedding date was affected by the Winter Covid lockdown. Marilyn easily pivoted with us and provided new floral options for an early Spring wedding. We were absolutely stunned by the exquisite floral arrangements Marilyn delivered on our wedding day. We couldn’t have been more pleased!

I just wanted to pass along a huge thank you for creating beautiful bouquets and centre pieces for our wedding August 29th. The flowers were stunning! You are amazing at what you do! Thank you for also being accommodating during this time with our date change. We truly appreciate it!
Today I received the beautiful flowers you so finely and carefully arranged. I’ve nevet seen something so lovely.
As mother of the bride, I want to thank you for the beautiful wedding bouquets you created for Ben and Janelle’s wedding, Friday, July 5. The colours you used were absolutely perfect and the bouquets were so nice and full. I thought you might like to know that when Janelle first saw the bouquets a huge smile came on her face, and she said very enthusiastically, “Oh, Mom! Can you believe it. This is exactly what I wanted.” The bouquets added some beautiful colour to the ceremony and they were perfect in the cylinder vases on the reception table during the evening. Thank you so much. You added a very special touch to Janelle and Ben’s day.

We met with a number of florists for quotes for our wedding, and everyone seemed to be way over our budget, until we met with Marilyn. Not only is she such a sweet lady, but she completely understood my vision and made suggestions on how we could make it fit within our budget. She wasn’t a “yes man” but also didn’t dash my dreams either - she said what was reasonable but made us confident that whatever she would create would be brilliant. Marilyn was such a pleasure to work with and hit the nail on the head the day of. She did such a wonderful job on every aspect and I can’t count how many compliments I received on my bouquet. The arbour pieces and even the wine barrel toppers were definitely much more grand than I expected - she gave us a serious upgrade just because she didn’t want things looking any less than perfect.
If you need flowers for your next wedding or event, look no further than 19 Melrose, you will not be disappointed.
We wanted to send you a quick thank you for everything you did. The flowers were so gorgeous and beyond our expectations. The chuppa was by far the nicest I’ve ever seen. You are amazing. You literally sat down with us, listened to what we said and created to a T, our wants and needs. Incredible.
Your work is fantastic. We couldn’t have been any happier.
Thank you again so much. You made our wedding perfect!!

Hi Marilyn, I just want to send a quick e-mail to thank you for everything this weekend. The flowers looked absolutely beautiful. Avery was taking out all of the flowers from her pomander before I even had a chance to see it but I've seen pics and it is so cute. Thank you for being so helpful throughout the process. The bouquets, candles, boutonniers, cake flowers and all of your small touches were amazing.
Having recently visited with dear old friends in Barrie I wanted to provide a very special thank you for their hospitality and friendship. I researched 19 Melrose online and just hoped that the gift I wanted delivered met my expectations. The "thank you" call back from my friends (along with an email photo) took my breath away. The flowers were spectacular and my friends were thrilled.
A special note of appreciation to Marilyn for putting magic into the bouquet.
Thank you so much Marilyn for the beautiful flowers for my daughters wedding this past August 2015. My daughter described them as absolutely stunning. The colours and flowers for the arbor, the bridesmaids flowers, the corsages, and the table centre pieces were just perfect. Everyone commented on how beautiful they all were. I can't thank you enough for everything!
Thank you so so so very much for the wonderful flowers and bouquets. They were so beautiful and the country club and church looked incredible! More than Mike and I could even imagine. We received so many complements about the flowers! As well as the Rosemary, thank you so much for the idea. As you know I had no knowledge about flowers and I had difficultly explaining my vision. Thank you again for making it come true! It was an amazing day!
All the best and thank you,
Katherine and Mike
Hope this finds you well. I just wanted to take a moment to thank you for your assistance with the flowers on Saturday. They were truly, absolutely beautiful! They turned out exactly as I had imagined.
Thank you again!
Sincerely, Sarah & Scott Hearnden.
Marilyn designed the bouquets and the centrepieces for my son's June,2014 wedding. She listened to our ideas and concerns and came up with unique and creative arrangements.
Marilyn is a lot of fun to work with and she inspires confidence as well. The results were beautiful.

From our first meeting, Marilyn's creativity, passion and experience were evident. I had every confidence that Nineteen Melrose Flower Studio would do an outstanding job on the flowers for my summer Muskoka wedding. The attention to detail and quality of work was breathtaking and exceeded my very high expectations!
I highly recommend Marilyn Ruyter for any upcoming event you are planning.
Our sincerest thanks,
Chantal Poirier-Szmyr and David Szmy
Marilyn created the most beautiful bouquets and boutonnieres for our winter wedding. She was fun and easy to work with, took care of the details during the busy wedding planning time when I couldn\'t remember much of anything and made the experience all the better!
Highly recommend Marilyn for both her talent and personality. :)
I got married on July 6, 2013 and when I first saw my flowers I fell in love. They were beautiful, and breathtaking! They were completely romantic, I absolutely loved them. I had mainly white roses and purple carnations. I cannot even explain to you guys how great Marilyn is, she went above and beyond. Thank you so much for being apart my special day.
Loved working with 19 Melrose Flower Studio! Did an overseas consult and saw the flowers for the first time the day of my wedding! eek! They were exactly what I hoped for! Marilyn is amazing!
Amazing service! Your website is easy to use and extremely efficient. Your customer service is above and beyond anything I have received from placing an order online! Thank you for making it so easy to send affordable, quality items at amazing prices, with great customer service as well! I will DEFINITELY recommend you to others and will be sure to shop through you again myself!
The flowers were perfect! Thank you so much. I was so relieved to find a florist in Barrie to take care of my order for me. I was very impressed that you returned my call even though it was long distance. Your friendliness and helpfulness was a breath of fresh air. I'm sure you will hear from me again in the future.
Thanks so much for the photos. They are beautiful. My mother was very, very pleased with them. As a matter of fact, it took her a good half hour to tell me about the arrangement's wonderful attributes.
I have asked her to recommend your flowers and service to the Senior's homes and centre's she volunteers at.I must thank you again as they were truly beautiful.
I wanted to let you know how much my sister enjoyed the flowers. They are absolutely beautiful, she was thrilled. Thank you for the effort you put into your work, allowing the sender to view a picture of the flowers is also a wonderful touch.
Thanks Marilyn for doing such a wonderful job on the centre pieces and bouquets!!! Everything looked amazing!! We had such a great day. Wouldn't change a thing!
