Frequently Asked Questions

How much do wedding flowers cost?

Prices completely depend on what types of flowers you like and how many pieces you need. For example: Bridesmaid's Bouquets on average cost $35.00-$85.00 but can run as low as $10.00 if they carry a single flower like a calla lily. Bridal Bouquets can cost anywhere between $75.00 - $350.00 or more if you like a lot of jewels, brooches, or high style design. If you have 2-5 bridesmaids and an average sized family, then your wedding party/family flowers will likely run $500.00-$1,000.00. If you have 6-10 bridesmaids then your flowers will likely run $1000.00 - $1500.00. If you like centerpieces or other flowers for the ceremony or reception then the total will double or triple depending on the size of your wedding. There are unlimited options for centerpieces and they can range in price from $10.00 - $400.00 or more. On average most centerpieces range $40.00 - $250.00. These prices are all approximate averages and are not guaranteed.

When should we come in to discuss flowers?

We recommend coming in 4-6 months before your wedding. Once you have your venue booked, bridal gown, and color pallet chosen; we can start working with you on your wedding flowers.

What should we bring to our consultation?

Photo/printed color pictures of flowers you like

Photos of your dress

Photos/swatches of the bridesmaid's dresses

Photos/information about your ceremony/reception site(s)

Your Budget

How much do you require for a deposit?

We require a $100.00 non-refundable deposit to hold your date. We only book a limited number of weddings per weekend so we recommend putting the deposit down as soon as possible to guarantee your date.

When is my final payment due?

Final payment is due by 2 weeks before your wedding. If your wedding is on a Sunday then your final payment is due by the Saturday 2 weeks and 1 day prior to your wedding date.

Do you offer payment plans?

You are welcome to break your total balance into payments leading up to your wedding but the final balance must be paid by 2 weeks prior to your wedding date.

Wedding Flowers only last a day, why should I pay so much for them?

This is something we hear frequently. Every part of your wedding is for one day: the venue, the food, the dj, the flowers, the cake, etc. What are the 2 things you take from your wedding?...your memories and your photographs; and what is featured in many of your photographs?....Your Flowers. If you like flowers, then we recommend that you don't cut the budget on your flowers as you will see them every time you look at your wedding photos, splurge a little and get what you really want versus what is "cheapest".
