Fancy Florals by Nancy, a Fairbury, IL Treasure

“Love is the flower you’ve got to let grow.” – John Lennon

Flowers are so key to a wedding. They make up the bouquets, boutonnieres, decorations, centerpieces, and the entire aesthetic. They add color, fragrance, texture, style, personality, and beauty to the ceremony and reception. Sometimes, though, finding the right florist can feel overwhelming and even intimidating. There are so many talented artists who are experienced in the art of floral design, how can you possibly pick just one?

While I might not be able to make that decision for you, I can introduce you to a fabulous florist based in Fairbury, Illinois.

Meet Nancy, an amazing floral creative who operates out of Fancy Florals by Nancy. She produces the most brilliant and stunning floral arrangements unlike anything you have seen other brides carry down the aisle. Nancy has vision, passion, and motivation for her work. It is this love that results in the most incredible flower arrangements.

Nancy’s floral studio strives to “bring garden-inspired designs using fresh unique blooms to create bespoke one-of-a-kind designs.” She draws her inspiration from nature and her own personal gardens. Growing up, Nancy’s family jokingly called her “Fancy Nancy”, a nod to her love of beauty and details. What a perfect nickname that led to the name of the floral studio. She and her husband “Plain Wayne”, as he jokingly refers to himself, make a powerful duo in their business. From flower prep, garland design, and delivery and set-up, these two are a true dream team. They work hard to help their clients have the most magical of weddings.

It is amazing how a stunning bouquet or one-of-a-kind floral arrangement can add so much to a couple’s big day. I just love the intricacies of weddings, and how other creatives come together to create the minute details that make a perfect and personalized wedding.

Did you know? Fancy Florals by Nancy has been chosen for The Knot “Best of Weddings” every year since 2015! Quite an accomplishment. To set up an appointment, call (309)212-6570 or email Happy wedding planning!

 I’m all about preserving those moments that tell your story.

Whether it’s four feet ankle-deep in mud, tenderly clasped hands, a happy tear cascading over a cheek, a hair-back laugh or a sun-drenched kiss,

The ones that move you. Bind you. Bring you together and keep you together long after the memory fades.
