Frequently Asked Questions

 

 

What’s your process?

First things first, HELLO! To get the ball rolling on booking your wedding or event florals, the first step is to fill out my INQUIRY FORM. You’ll be able to book your phone consultation where we’ll chat in more depth about your vision.

I’ll take you through a rough estimate of your florals, and if you like what you hear, you’ll submit a retainer to secure your date in my design calendar. 

Once you’ve paid the retainer, we’ll get down to the nitty-gritty and sort through every detail, to carefully create a comprehensive floral design for your big day! We’ll sign a contract that protects us both, and set up a payment plan that suits your budget. (Yep! I offer payment plans!)

I’m not a drop-and-go kind of florist. As your planning evolves, I will check in to make tweaks as needed. On the day of, my team and I will take care of every floral detail, right down to the last petal. 

IT WILL BE MAGIC.

 

I don’t have a big budget! What can I do for less than $1000? 

First of all, I am happy to chat with you about what we can achieve for your budget! I do, however, want you to have realistic (if beautiful!) expectations. Flowers and foliage aren’t inexpensive, and The Internet is full of some pretty wild misinformation. (No, an all-greenery wedding will not be inexpensive. Greenery is often MORE expensive than a lot of flowers!)

Why do I need to do a phone consultation? Why can’t you just send me a quote by email? 

Everything I create is custom, so a phone consultation is essential. We need to know if we are a good fit, mutually, and if your vision will jive well with my design style. I want to know so much more about your wedding than fits in a simple inquiry form: style, vibe, palette are just some of the details we will talk about before we get to the quote stage. 

 

Can you copy this exact bouquet from Pinterest?

While I would never copy another floral artist’s work, I do work closely with my clients to ensure that I capture the essence of their personality, style, and palette. You will get a bouquet that is SO MUCH BETTER than what you pinned because it will be unique to YOU. 

 

Why do wedding flowers cost so much? 

There are so many factors that go into the cost of wedding florals. They are perishable, they are costly up-front, they are seasonal and subject to Mother Nature’s whims, they are time-consuming to create with and require expertise, and most of all, they are ART. Your wedding florals are an investment that will be photographed and remembered long after your guests have gone home. They create a sensory experience for you and your guests, and they put your unique stamp on your day!

 

Do you do flat-lay foliage?

Yes and no. 

The Internet loves this look, but I need to let you in on some pretty important secrets. First of all, you need A LOT of foliage for this to look good. Most pictures of this type of design are taken close-up, which makes it look fuller than it really is. Secondly, you can’t use just any old foliage for this. You need something three-dimensional and beautiful so that it won’t look a) cheap and b) flat. This cost A LOT. Third, this look requires A LOT of on-site time to actually look good AND one false move on the catering staff’s part and the whole thing looks like… well… you know.

If you LOVE this look, then let’s talk about how we can achieve it beautifully. If you want to be budget-conscious, let’s find some other solutions!
