WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO SCHEDULE A CONSULTATION?
Complete the form on the Contact Us section of our website, which is delivered to our email box. We will be in touch with you shortly afterward to schedule your consultation with us. We are also happy to do the consultation over the phone for brides who are planning from out of town.
WHEN DURING MY PLANNING PROCESS SHOULD I SCHEDULE A FLORAL CONSULTATION?
If you are interested in florals and event styling, where we help you plan the design, colors, and inspirations for all the details of your day, we would love to hear from you 9-12 months out from your wedding. If you are interested in just florals and maybe some rental items, please contact us 6-9 months out from your wedding for a consultation. We need to know where your event will be taking place, the number of people in your bridal party, number of guests expected to attend, and your budget. We will send you a pre-consultation form to complete before our meeting where you will need to record this information for us.
WHAT ARE YOUR BUSINESS HOURS?
We try to spend time with our families on Sunday and Mondays especially during wedding season which is April through November, however we often end up working on these days to ensure timelines are met. Our Business Hours are Tuesday-Friday 10am-5pm. Consultations may be scheduled during our regular business hours. We also offer evening hours on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Depending on our event schedule we may have limited availability to meet on the weekends as well.
WHAT SHOULD WE BRING TO OUR FIRST CONSULTATION?
Please bring anything that will give us and idea of the look and feel you are going for for your event. Anything such as a photo of your attire, fabric swatches for your linens, inspirational pictures, and any items you intend to use for your event that you would like to share with us!

WHAT DO YOU REQUIRE TO SECURE OUR DATE AND BOOK WITH YOU?
An initial non-refundable retainer of $300 will secure your date and book with us. After your deposit is paid we will provide you with your detail design proposal and visuals. Final payment is due 4 weeks before your event, after we’ve completed your final walkthrough meeting. We invoice through our client management system where you can pay with a debit or credit card. We also accept checks.
CAN WE MAKE CHANGES TO OUR INVOICE AFTER WE PAY THE DEPOSIT?
Yes you absolutely can! Paying your deposit means you are going with us as your florist and does not bind you into anything specific on your original invoice when you pay. Any changes can be made at any time up until your final payment is due 4 weeks before your wedding.
