Wondering what working with a dedicated florist for your wedding is like?
Read below to see what to expect as a Honeycomb Bride!
6-12 Months from your date: Consultation and proposal delivery. We will meet or speak on the phone to go over your vision of your wedding flowers. I’ll deliver a proposal to you within 72 hours of that meeting that includes a description of the items you may be ordering and the estimated cost. 25% of your total balance is due at the time contract is signed. This will reserve your date and ensure that I am all yours for the week of your wedding!
6 Weeks Out: Review order and determine adjustments. Maybe you added an extra bridesmaid and need another bouquet; perhaps the guest list just keeps growing or you would like runners instead of round centerpieces, etc. This is the time when we will meet either in person or over the phone to review the original proposal and determine if any changes need to be made.
4 Weeks Out: Final Payment Due. This is the latest date to make a payment. I start preparations about one month before your wedding, and need to place the order for your flowers about two weeks prior. After that, it will be up to what the wholesaler has on-hand. (Don’t worry about this part, they have a TON of gorgeous blooms, but we want to make sure to order the specifics you’ve requested).
Your Wedding Day: Delivery. I deliver your order and set up any installations. We (briefly) swoon over your day. I may stay around to help move items from the ceremony to reception space, if we’ve arranged that.
1 Week Post-Party: Rental return. This won’t apply to everyone. If you have chosen to rent larger items like an arch or wall from me instead of buying them, we will need to arrange the return of those within one week of the event.
At any time: Text me, email me, call me. I aim to have transparent business practices and be available to my clients. You won’t bother me, I promise.
Weddings should be FUN for the couple, and my goal as your florist is to keep the stress of planning out of the equation, at least for the flowers. ;)
