Wedding Flowers – Frequently Asked Questions
How far in advanced do I need to book?
We suggest a minimum of 6-12 months but we can easily work within a shorter planning timeframe.
We do recommend paying your 25% deposit as early as possible as we only take a limited number of weddings each weekend.
After your deposit is paid we can easily sort through changes and revisions to the order details, nothing needs to be firmly set in stone until 6 weeks prior to your wedding day.
Are some flowers only available in certain months of the year?
Yes, we are at the mercy of Mother Nature and weather conditions have a significant impact on availability of flowers. For example, Peonies are only available for a few weeks in mid-Spring (most often November) but the specific availability often changes from year to year, depending on how cold the winter has been and how wet the early weeks of spring are.
Do you have wedding flower packages?
Because every wedding requires different items, we have created a customisable Wedding Essentials program. Read more about it here.
Do you offer hire items or do I have to buy my vases etc.?
We do offer a range of hire items – vases, ceremony archways, totems, and a chuppah, various styles of candleholders as well an easel and birdcage wishing well.
If you are looking for a long list of hire items, we recommend partnering with Ashdown & Bee. Check out their hire inventory here.
How much do flowers usually cost?
There is a lot of variability when it comes to wedding flower prices. Most of our couples spend between $3500 – $7000 on their wedding flowers.
We suggest 10-15% of your total wedding budget but if you want florals to be a significant component of the experience for the day, we would recommend allocating closer to 25-30% of your total budget to flowers.
Where are you located?
Our wedding team is based in the Southern Highlands, NSW. We also operate a retail shop in High Street Laneway in Bowral NSW.
We do wedding flowers for couples getting married all across the Southern Highlands as well as in Wollongong and South Coast NSW.
How do I organise a consultation?
The first step is to submit an initial enquiry – we will then confirm whether your date is available.
From there, we will send you an online design consultation as well as coordinate a phone consultation with you.
I am interstate / overseas and am not able to do a face to face consultation. Is that a problem?
No, not at all. All of our initial consultations are actually held via phone – if you’re overseas we can easily coordinate over Skype or we can call you directly.
Do I need a theme or a style for my wedding before we meet?
No, not at all.
We do suggest though that you do a little research about the types of flowers and designs you like – everyone’s tastes are different and there are hundreds of options when it comes to wedding flower design. Even one or two inspiration photos can point us all in the right direction.
you don’t need to have thought through every detail. We’ve managed more than 300 weddings and know our local venues incredibly well. We’re always happy to provide suggestions and options for ceremony and reception styling ideas as well.
