Creating Your Floral Estimate
Enquire with us via email or our enquiry form and we’ll get back to you with our availability and to learn more about your wedding vision and requirements. We can lock in a time for a phone call to chat blooms if you wish or we can do it all online with the help of inspiration images.
We will then create your floral estimate that includes a mood board and an itemised listing of all the blooming loveliness. All flower and foliage varieties listed in your floral estimate are indications of what is in season at the time of the event and what we can typically get for you. While we try our absolute best to secure you the exact flowers and shades you are after, we are all at the mercy of mother nature and her seasons and suppliers ability to meet demand (especially during heavy floral turn over, think Valentines Day, Mothers Day and peak wedding season in general). We are always committed to finding you the very best substitute should we ever need to.
We can tweak the estimate until it fits your style and budget perfectly and then to lock in our services we will send you an invoice that equates to 20% of your floral estimate, this booking fee is non refundable, (this payment is deducted from your final invoice). Once we have received this payment your booking is confirmed!
Can I Make Changes To My Booking?
Yes! After you have paid your booking fee you can rest easy knowing we are there for you, but you have the flexibility to make some adjustments like increase or decrease guest table numbers, adding extra arrangements or perhaps tweaking your colours after those bridesmaid dressing have been selected. We confirm and lock in all the finer details from colours to quantities, flower availability and the wedding day schedule at your final consultation, 8 weeks out from the big day.
We know how important your flowers are to your special day and we like to be as accommodating as we can.
How Far In Advance Do I Need to Book?
As wedding dates can book out quickly, we recommend booking your florist at least 6 months in advance to avoid disappointment. It is not uncommon for us to have bookings 18 months in advance.
Why Are Wedding Flowers So Expensive?
People often say suppliers put the costs up as soon as they hear the word ‘wedding’.
It is true that wedding flowers are more expensive than buying a bunch of flowers from the local shop because there is a lot more work involved to bring the day together for you. Just doing the flower prep, arrangements, wedding set up, pack down and clean up can be a 3 day job in itself and that doesn’t include all the planning before hand. Aside from covering general overheads the costs in our wedding prices include communication and planning, personal consultation, site visits, a design process, ordering from the growers, collecting your flowers from the markets just for you, (that's a 5hr round trip drive to Perth and back!), deliveries to multiple addresses and a team of designers to pull it all together and set up on the day.
Reusing Ceremony Blooms at Your Reception
Re purposing arrangements is possible in some cases, particularly with church alter vase arrangements where the ceremony is inside and flowers are not damaged in the outside elements or if the ceremony is at the same venue as your reception it makes it easier logistically. Some of our designs such as ceremony arch installations can be difficult to remove and re-design for your reception as they are designed to be front facing or may be a little worse for wear after being outside in the elements such as the hot sun, wind or rain and then transported back to the reception.
If the arch is located at the same venue then we may be able to relocate this for you 'as is' on the arch, this will incur an additional wait and re-location fees. We don’t want your flowers going to waste so we can always discuss options with you.
