Where are you located?

How can I get a quote for my wedding flowers?

Once you have your wedding venue locked in, wedding date confirmed, and established your wedding florals budget  please fill out the contact form on our website or email hello@blushandbloom.net.au.  We will then respond to confirm our availability and to request further information about your wedding vision.  

Upon receipt of the additional information 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 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 40% of your floral estimate, this booking fee is non refundable and is deducted from your final invoice. Once we have received this payment along with your signed contract your booking is confirmed!

How can I secure my wedding date?

We ask for a non refundable booking fee equal to 40% of the total floral estimate along with your signed quote acceptance. The remaining balance is due four weeks prior to the wedding/event date. No dates are secured or held without a signed quote acceptance and the booking fee. We do not tentatively book wedding dates.

If you are unsure of what you will be needing in terms of flowers and delivery services you may sign a contract with us at our minimum spend and pay a 40% retainer on our minimum spend. This is so you can secure the date with us without knowing exactly what you will be needing as this can be finalised closer to the wedding date.

How much should I budget for wedding flowers?

As a couple, you need to decide how important fresh flowers are for your wedding day. Some couples may not care much for florals and others may want the wedding overflowing with big, beautiful blooms and lush foliage.

Most wedding magazines and online wedding blogs suggest that you should allocate a floral budget of about 10-15% of your overall wedding budget. If you are looking for Pinterest-worthy, fine-art inspired, lush designs you may want to consider a floral budget of 20-25% of your total wedding budget. 

Minimum Spend

We are known for our lush, garden inspired style designs which use premium blooms such as peonies, garden roses, lisianthus and more. To be able to create these types of designs, as well as provide the best client care and experience possible, our studio has a minimum wedding flower financial commitment of $3,000 (including gst + delivery/setup), from October through to the end of April. There is no mimimum spend from May through to September.

How far in advance do we need to book?

As wedding dates can book out quickly, we recommend booking your florist at least 6 to 12 months in advance to avoid disappointment. It is not uncommon for us to have bookings 18 months in advance.

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.

What is your cancellation/postponement/rescheduling policy?

Cancellations

 In the unfortunate event that your event is cancelled, we require a minimum of 30 days notice. Cancellations are to be made in writing via email. 

On cancellation of your event you will receive a refund of the balance of monies paid, less the non-refundable 40% booking fee amount, less any non-perishable items purchased on your behalf for their event (such as vases, ribbons and other non perishable items). We cannot extend a refund on bookings cancelled within 30 days of the event.

Postponement/Rescheduling

Should you need to change the date or postpone the date of the wedding you will need to inform us in writing. Should the new date be available, we will confirm with you in writing. Should the date not be available, you will forfeit your booking fee.
