It’s time to start planning your wedding flowers, but where do you start? Here you’ll find some of the most frequently asked questions. Do you have a question that’s not here? If so, please give us a call or email us and we will be happy to answer any questions you may have.
How do I book you as my wedding florist?
After you complete our Wedding Inquiry we will contact you shortly afterwards to schedule your free phone consultation where I get an understanding of your overall wedding style and needs. If it feels like a good match, we will create a preliminary proposal for you. This will include an estimated cost for your wedding flowers. After you have taken the time to review the proposal a signed contract and nonrefundable retainer will secure your date.
How far in advance should I book my wedding flowers?
Since we book a limited number of events, we would recommend not putting it off to long. We recommend booking your wedding flowers 6-8 months ahead of time. If your wedding is only a few weeks away, we may still be able to assist you. Give us a call to confirm availability.
How do I schedule a consultation?
Please complete our Wedding Inquiry and we will contact you shortly afterwards to schedule your free phone consultation if you haven’t already done so.
How many weddings do you book in a weekend?
We prefer to book only 2 weddings per weekend, however, depending on the size of the events, we will design more.
Can I reserve my date if all of my details have not been determined yet?
Yes you may. There is a $250 non-refundable reservation fee. This reserves your date and assures you that we will be available. The reservation fee will be applied towards your total balance upon booking our services. Once you know more about your style and colors you may then schedule a consultation at a future time.
Will I be given an estimate at the consultation?
In most cases, you will be given a written estimate during your consultation based on the selections you have made or are considering. If we can not provide you with an estimate at the time of your consultation, we will follow up with you after our research has been completed.
Do you have a minimum?
Yes. We have a $1500 minimum for weddings and a $500 minimum for delivery on other types of events (showers, rehearsal, corporate events and other events). There is no minimum if you pick up your order at our studio. Typically, a full production wedding will be roughly $3,500, which includes design, labor, set up of the ceremony as well as the reception, and then the removal and pick up at the end of your event.
Will you meet me at my venue?
We will be more than happy to meet you at your venue. On-site visits are available by appointment only. Additional fees may apply.
What areas do you service?
We service NYC, Long Island, the surrounding areas and are also available for travel.
What other services do you provide?
Not only do we design the flowers, but we can also assist you with fabric draping, event design, linens, lighting, rental items, personalized attendant gifts and welcome baskets.
Do you provide rental items?
We offer our clients an extensive line of rental items to help them achieve the look and feel they desire without the added expense of purchasing them. Please visit our rental page for a list of available rentals. Please check back often as we are always adding to our rental inventory.
How much will my wedding flowers cost?
Each wedding that leaves our boutique is unique and a custom one-of-a-kind design. The price of your flowers is determined by the type of flowers, availability and the amount of flowers you will need. As a guideline, we recommend 10%-15% of your overall wedding budget for your floral decor. $50,000 wedding = $5,000-$7,500. This estimate does not include rentals.
It helps to have a specific budget in mind before our consultation so we can guide you towards the appropriate recommendations. Our brides and grooms come to us because flowers are high on their priority list and the overall look of the event is important to them. For specific pricing regarding our products and services, contact us to schedule your wedding flower consultation. If you need help in determining a budget, please download our Wedding Flower Planner [COMING SOON]. For a general idea on pricing head on over to the investment page.
Will you accept vases or other items I purchase from another supplier?
Unfortunately no, as a full service wedding company we will not be able to accept any products from clients because of quality control standards. We have developed relationships with trusted suppliers that we prefer to use. There are a few exceptions such as a special memento passed down from a family member or something we do not offer.
