DO YOU STILL DO WEEKLY FLOWER BUNCHES?
Yes, we still do our weekly flowers. To order contact us via our mobile or email. Please allow 24 hours notice. Want regular flowers for your home or business? We also provide our install service for a monthly fee. You can pick your refresh period of weekly, fortnightly or monthly. Contact us for more information.
HOW DO WE START PLANNING OUR WEDDING FLOWERS?
Head to the Contact section and fill in the Enquiry Form. We will respond within 48 hours. Attach any inspiration photos as it helps us to get an understanding of the types of designs you like. We never copy so we will come back with our take on the design. You want something that is designed specifically for you.
HOW MUCH DO WEDDING FLOWERS COST?
Each wedding is unique. Many elements go into a quote and there are many variables. That’s why we don’t do set packages but tailor our quotes to each specific event. As a guide I would allow 10% of your wedding budget for flowers and styling.
WHY SHOULD WE HIRE SOMEONE RATHER THAN DIY?
Everyone has a budget and we understand why you would consider DIY. Just make sure that any stressful parts of the day are outsourced. There are definitely parts of your wedding that you can do yourself if you are on a tight budget but there are particular things that we would not recommend.
We make sure that if anything goes wrong on the day we can take care of it. This could be weather-related, guest-related, venue-related, family-related etc. There are many things that are outside your control on the day but we take care of it - generally without anyone being aware that there was a problem in the first place.
HOW MUCH WORK GOES INTO CREATING YOUR DAY?
Our work for your wedding or event starts well before the actual date and ends way after the day. The process starts as soon as you contact us - from the initial designs, quoting for each stem, researching the best grower/wholesaler to purchase from, ordering your flowers, through many consults, emails and phone calls. The whole week before is dedicated to your day. The 3am wake-up to get to the markets to make sure we hustle to get the best blooms, conditioning and hydrating the flowers to keep them fresh and then starting the actual construction.
It doesn’t stop there as we pack up at the end of the night and make sure anything that can be reused is reused so we can create as little waste as possible. Cleaning all our items the following days and discarding any waste in the most ethical way. An average size wedding for us involves between 50 to 80 hours of work.
DO WE NEED TO INCLUDE PACK UP?
If you have an arbour or items that are tricky to pack up at the end of an event then you have to include pack up. This is for the safety of other people and also to prevent damage to our products. If there are no labour intensive items to pack up we are happy for them to be dropped back to us on the designated drop-off day.
You need to be very sure that the family and friends who have volunteered to pack up don’t have such a good time that they either forget or are unable to do it. Charges will apply if we are called up at a later date to pick up the hired items or to clean up.
HOW DO WE SECURE OUR DATE?
We put together a quote for you and require a 20% deposit to secure your date.
The quote, items and even the style can change along the way and the deposit is deducted from the final amount. We require full payment to be made 14 days prior to the event date.
DO YOU DO EVENTS OUT OF SYDNEY?
Yes we do! We have many favourite venues out of Sydney and more than happy to give you some recommendations. We travel both North and South of Sydney.
DO YOU DO OTHER EVENTS?
We do all events from corporate to baby showers to birthdays and special occasions. We are your team for any event needing florals or styling.
