READY. SET. BREATHE.
Planning an Event or Wedding? Here are few questions that people often ask!
- What should I bring on our first consultation?
You should usually have a pretty good idea on the following things before you come in:
- Wedding Party Quantities (Bridesmaids, Groomsmen, Mother's, Father's, etc.)
- Wedding venue (Ceremony and Reception)
- Table Quantity, Size and Shape (If centerpieces are needed)
- Color Palette
- Style of your Wedding
- Vase Styles
- How far in advance do I need to book you before my wedding?
We only book one year in advance, but I would schedule an appointment as soon as possible... especially if your date is during the Spring and Fall. The typical time frame is usually 6-8 months in advance.
- How much should I expect to spend?
The price really depends on your individual needs and the flower types that we use. Typically our weddings are between $2,500 and $4,000, but some are higher/lower.
- Do you travel?
Yes! We travel to pretty much anywhere. The travel fee will be included in the quote and the price usually depends on the distance and amount of hours/days spent on site.
- Is there a deposit?
Yes, we require 40% of the total once you accept the quote. If the wedding/event date is changed, you will have to provide a new deposit for the new date. If the date is canceled, you will not be refunded the deposit.
ALSO HERE ARE A FEW HELPFUL TIPS!
Ask the important questions. Whenever you meet with your florist, it’s a good idea to ask to see previous examples of their work (through photographs). Other great questions may be what type of experience they have with your style of wedding and how many weddings they take on per year. I personally believe in having a personal relationship with my clients so that may be something to learn more about as well.
OH PINTEREST! Showing Pinterest photos to your florist can be helpful, but just remember that some of the flowers are not always available in your individual state. Some photos may have been taken in another part of the country where certain florals are more readiy available. (I know, I hate it too!) So please don’t get your heart set on that Pinterest Bouquet but instead remember that your images can provide inspiration! Your florals will be beautiful in their own unique way! <3
On the day of, it is important to have your bouquets and boutonnieres arrive BEFORE taking photographs. Flowers add so much to the wedding photography, so you want to make sure you have them whenever the photographer arrives! (From Catherine Guidry Photography: Have these delivered to the pre-determined area for photographs.)
