HOW WE WORK

Wedding days are truly magical experiences. They are the culmination of a lot of decision-making and planning, bringing together your closest family and friends to celebrate your love and life. But we also know first hand just how overwhelming the process of wedding planning can feel. our mission is to make the wedding flower process as fun and straightforward as humanly possible.

    We're always happy to provide a no-obligation quote and design guide to help inform your budget. The best way to do this is to fill in our online questionnaire and let's hop on the phone for 15-30 minute chat to sort through the details. From there, we'll send you a quote, which is valid for 30 days.

  • DEPOSIT RECEIVED

    To confirm your booking, all we need is a 25% deposit. This secures our team for the day and don't fret all the details on your can be changed after the deposit is received. Nothing needs to be set in stone until 6-8 weeks prior to the big day.

EXPLORING COLOUR PALETTES

We love colour. Like love love LOVE colour.

We find wedding flowers provide a beautiful opportunity to showcase a full spectrum of colour, adding depth and dimension to your wedding colour palette.

Here are a few of our favourite colour palettes for 2019/2020.

Floral design allows us incorporate a bit more personality into the colour palette for your event.

We can also look to evolve the colour palette over the story of your event – for example begin with fresh cream and whites and greens for the bouquet, then look to feature pink highlights in the reception and finally add in touches of deep plum and burgundy for the reception.

Don’t feel there are any ‘rules’ that must be followed. Gone are the days when you had to have a white bouquet.

Allow your creativity to shine here and don’t forget – you can always ask us our thoughts on colour themes for the day.

YOUR WEDDING FLOWER BUDGET

There is a lot of flexibility when it comes to sorting through a budget for your wedding flowers. It’s important to know, as a couple, how important fresh flowers are for your wedding day – you may feel flowers aren’t a central focus for your day or you may feel your flowers are ‘the thing’ that will bring your unique day to life. Also, give some consideration to your venue: does it need the additional decor florals provide or is it a beautiful venue itself and you don’t need to go over the top?

As a good rule of thumb, we suggest your floral budget account for 10-15% of your overall wedding budget. If, on the other hand, you are looking for Pinterest-worthy, abundant design, we would suggest allocating 20-25% of your total wedding budget.

Most of our couples spend between $3,500-$7,500 but some spend less or budget more based on your preferences. Remember, it’s your day and the day should reflect your taste and style.

Below is by no means a complete list. Like everything else wedding-flower-related there are so many ‘what ifs’ and ‘except this’ scenarios. The following is meant to be a rough guide to help you plan which items could be covered within a your price range.

BELOW $1000

Most often, this will allow for bridal bouquet, a few bridesmaid bouquets as well as buttonholes for the groom and groomsmen. Depending on the number in the bridal bouquet, it could account for buttonholes and corsages for a few additional family members.

If you are having a very intimate wedding and no bridal party, it could account for your bouquet, a buttonhole as well as a small feature installation at the ceremony or reception.

HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF A LIMITED BUDGET

Order from our set menu and leave the details to us. You’ll save 15% off our standard price list.

$1500 – $3000

Depending on the size of the bridal party, this will cover off all personal flowers (bouquets, buttonholes) as well as a allow for some table decorations at the reception. We would suggest smaller arrangements on each table or a collection of bud vases and feature blooms to fit within the budget.

Or, instead of table flowers, this could allow for a large feature at the ceremony (perhaps an archway with florals) or the reception (perhaps a hanging foliage installation with a few pops of flowers throughout).

Alternatively, if you’re bridal party only includes two additional people, this budget could allow for a ceremony feature element as well as a reception installation. We could then look at using candles to decorate the tables instead of flowers.

$3500 – $5000

This budget could cover the personal flowers as well as a feature element at the ceremony and the reception. It can also cover off smaller table arrangements or bud vases for the table decoration as well as candles.

Or, if there is just one of either a ceremony archway and / or reception installation, there will be budget to cover off our standard sized table arrangements.

$5500 – $7500

This price range falls within our typical full service wedding – most often this includes personal flowers, a ceremony floral feature, an installation at the reception, as well as flowers and candles for the tables.

Having said that though, if we are building a custom ceremony element (i.e. chuppah), this budget may only account for personal flowers, the ceremony feature and a few touches at the reception.

$7500 – $10,000

With this budget, we are often looking at a collection of personal flowers, large statement / impact pieces at the ceremony (for example, urn arrangements or an archway PLUS aisle flowers OR a feature chuppah installation). For the reception, the budget could allow for a hanging feature as well as flowers and candles for the tables.
