Wedding FAQs

 
 

How far in advance do I need to book?

For full service weddings we recommend booking 6-10 months prior to your wedding date. For bridal party only orders please enquire for availability however we usually don’t take these any earlier than 3-4 months prior to your wedding date.


Do you travel out of Sydney?

Yes we love an adventure! We travel to close by regions including the Southern Highlands, South Coast, Kangaroo Valley, The Blue Mountains, The Central Coast and The Hunter Region.


Do you have a minimum spend?


To ensure the highest quality and service we only take on a very limited number of weddings per year. In order to reserve your date with us our minimum floral design spend starts from $2000 (September - April) and $1500 (May - August). Plus your delivery, set up and pack down costs if required.

Subject to availability we will take on bridal party only orders below this spend.


How much do wedding flowers cost?

We work with the finest seasonal flowers and materials so our costs are on the more premium end of floral design. Our bespoke designs are all quoted accordingly to your requirements, sizes and materials used. On average our clients invest $3500 - $8000 on their wedding flowers and our bridal bouquets usually start from $200 as a price guide.


Why are wedding flowers so expensive?

Yes wedding flowers are more expensive than buying a bunch of flowers from the local shop because there is a lot more work involved in creating each design. The costs in our prices include consultations, site visits, planning of logistics, communication in the lead up to your wedding, a design process, ordering from the growers and collecting from the markets just for you, deliveries to multiple addresses (sometimes involving trucks), late night pack down, flower wrapping and vegetation recycling of excess waste.


I’d like a specific floral design in this image created for my wedding are you able to provide us with a quote?

Whilst we welcome inspiration images of designs and colour palettes for reference we tailor your designs just for you to best suit your wedding style, budget, attire and personalities. Plus it’s a lot more special to have your own unique designs and style.


I’d like to reuse our ceremony flowers for the reception - is this possible?

In some cases yes, 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 and not as costly.

You need to take into consideration the costs to wait for the ceremony to finish (often up to 2 hours), repack, deliver and the time to set up and redesign the arrangements - whilst other designers are at the reception setting up your florals. Sometimes it works out cheaper to create fresh arrangements at the reception.

Designs such as ceremony arch florals 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.

We don’t want your flowers going to waste so we can always discuss options with you.


How do I receive a quote?

We like to make it as easy as possible for you and talk about approximate costs from the get go, we’re honest about what we think you need or don’t need and what we can do for you within your budget so it is helpful to have a range to work with.

The way we work is to have an initial phone complimentary phone consultation to chat about your brief and answer any questions you may have, at this stage we can email through an outline and approximate ballpark cost range for your wedding flowers or what we could explore with your budget.

If it is a fairly straight forward brief we can provide an itemised quote for you to book in your wedding florals, and we meet around 6 weeks prior to finalise details and provide your floral mood board.

For some jobs that require more in depth planning, site visits, sketches of designs etc, and detailed mood boards such as working with stylists we like to meet in person to discuss your ideas in detail prior to presenting our floral design proposal. We have design and site visit fees for these jobs that will be credited towards your final floral design quote.


Do you conduct site visits?

For more complex and specific briefs, in particular hanging structure work we may require a site visit prior to providing you with a quote. Site visits will incur a $120 fee (Sydney Metro) credited towards your quote if you book in with us. Out of Sydney will incur an additional travel fee.


What are your booking terms and deposit?

To book your wedding date we require a non-refundable 25% booking deposit and our terms and conditions signed within 7 days, 25% second instalment 90 days prior to your event date (or full 50% if within 90 days) and your final payment is due 30 days prior to your event date so we can plan, design and order your floral designs.


I’d like a personal consultation prior to booking is this possible?

Some people would prefer a personal meet and greet prior to committing to booking (and that’s completely fine too, especially for such a special day!) and sometimes we feel that we require a personal consultation in order to understand your vision. We are happy to catch up over a cuppa and offer appointments during the week as we work weekends, in Winter periods we may have weekend availability.

For after work appointments we can accomodate FaceTime or Skype consultations only (remember our alarm often goes off at 3:30am for the flower markets).
