Story Of Us

Inspired by the beauty and sophistication of Charleston Tiger Lily was founded in 1996.  Their goal was simple:  Be The Best Florist in Charleston.  Since then, Tiger Lily has grown to be the largest florist in South Carolina, and been Voted “Charleston’s Best Florist” every year since 2000.

Just as we have grown, so has Charleston, SC.  Being named one of the top wedding destinations year over year.  The Tiger Lily Weddings (TLW) wedding division of Tiger Lily Florist is taking its core belief of being “The Best”  and applying that same great customer service and knowledge to weddings and events.   Wedding floral design inspired by your love story – while still adding a taste of southern charm from Charleston, SC.

Lisa feels that the amazing staff is the reason for their success.  “We feel truly blessed to have such a wonderful team, to work with incredible flowers, in this spectacular town.”

Thank you to our founding owners, Manny & Clara Gonzales.
