Your first consultation is an in-person appointment or phone consultation, depending on the size and complexity of your wedding florals. In this consultation I really like to spend this time getting to know my clients, what their vision is, what they are really trying to invoke through personality and design. A list of all floral needs is comprised through our conversation, and a few photos are shared to help share the vision with me. We will discuss color, flower varieties, design elements and services needed. My wedding services begin at $1500, which is a starting point for clients needing personal flowers only. Full - serviced wedding including centerpieces, ceremony pieces and personal flowers begins at $2500.
ESTIMATES AND PROPOPSALS:
You can expect your written estimate within one week of our consultation. In it I will provide a visual proposal that include inspiration pieces to invoke the style of your wedding, along with a detailed itemized list of the florals needed for your event. I often will include several suggested pieces that I think may play a key role in final design. These pieces are of course suggestions only and may be added or not to the final list. I allow for up to two revisions to your estimate before requiring a deposit from you for my service .
DEPOSIT AND BOOKING:
A 30% non-refundable deposit of your initial estimate is due to book your wedding date with me. Your date will be held for one week after sending your estimate. Once booked you will receive an invoice from me with the balance owing, which is due one month before the date of your wedding.
ABOUT YOUR FLOWERS:
Wedding flowers are the most beloved and cared for blooms, and I go to great lengths to source quality seasonal flowers, gathering and caring for them in the days before your wedding. I always source locally first, through small farming communities all over British Columbia, and of course in my own cutting gardens. I truly love the gathering process, it feels like I am collecting the most treasured pieces to create for you.
LEADING UP TO YOUR WEDDING:
In the months before your wedding I am available by phone and email to discuss any changes you may need to make to your floral order. One month before your wedding we will reconnect to review your florals to ensure that everything is exactly how you want it, and work out any final logistic details. From there, your flowers are ordered from farms, and tagged in the gardens, and the final touches are made to begin creating your wedding florals.
