The Last Straw Florist has earned a favorable reputation among San Antonio couples for turning flower fantasies into wedding realities. With more than 30 years of experience in floral design, owner Maria Ramirez takes pride in knowing she and her team of floral designers can create any vision a couple desires. “There is nothing we cannot make,” Maria says. “Our clients have brought us everything from pictures off of Pinterest to lavish, high-end magazines and we deliver on their wishes each time.”
Much of The Last Straw's success is attributed to the shop's talented designers, but it also has to do with Maria's business philosophy. “We strive to make our clients' dreams come true. This means not only being able to bring their ideas to life but also making sure we deliver on our promises."
Because The Last Straw is a full-service florist, Maria says they can order any flower imaginable year-round. This means that, contrary to popular belief, couples are not limited to choosing only flowers that are in season at the time of their wedding. At The Last Straw Florist, no flower is off limits. Instead, the florists encourage brides and grooms to use their imaginations to create their own unique look for their special day.
“When it comes to wedding flowers, there’s somewhat of a myth that brides and grooms should stick with seasonal flowers. But I can assure you that the flower that might be out of season for your wedding date in San Antonio is in season somewhere in the world, and we will get it if that’s what it takes to create your design,” says Maria.
Whereas some florists only specialize in flower arrangements, Maria and her team focus on the whole look. In addition to a vast selection of flowers, The Last Straw also offers couples a variety of props and centerpiece options. “We feel it’s important for couples to be able to create a complete look in one place so we provide them with many options. They can choose from different vases, candelabras, pew markers, pillars, and arches that we carry in-store to create flower arrangements.”
By offering these options, couples can see how everything will look on their wedding day so there aren’t any surprises.
“Our clients’ satisfaction is top priority. Once we work with a client to create their floral designs and agree to what flowers will be used, they can rest assured that the final look will be exactly as we discussed. There won’t be any substitutions,” Maria emphasizes. “We understand the importance of the day and strive to make our clients happy."
Without a doubt, The Last Straw's focus on customer service is a key to its success. The shop designs flower arrangements for hundreds of weddings each year. And still, Maria says, no two weddings are alike, which makes working with each new client an exciting challenge. “Most couples come in with an idea of what they want, and although we do see trends or popular looks, we always work with the couple to create something distinctively their own, and they really appreciate that.”
Indeed, for more than three decades, an attention to detail and a desire to exceed clients’ expectations has made The Last Straw Florist a favorite among San Antonio brides and grooms.
