Frequently asked questions
I have tried to answer some of the common questions we are asked here, but please don't be afraid to ask....
1. You're free on my date, what happens next?
We start with an informal chat - by phone or over a coffee when planning larger events. Helps us get a feel for your wedding plans and any ideas you may have.
4. FINAL CHECK
Four weeks before your event, we'll be in touch to confirm final details and adjust your order if needed.
Next, we get creative! It can help to visit your venue to get a sense of the space. And then we'll create a elegant design to fit your wedding themes, your preferences and your budget.
We'll draft a itemised proposal setting everything out clearly. Once everything's agreed, a small deposit secures your date, so you can tick this job off your list.
We carefully prepare your flowers to look their best and last well. Then comes the best part - creating your wonderful bouquets and displays, brimming with natural beauty.
6. DELIVERY & SET-UP
Finally, we'll deliver on-time and set-up your beautiful flowers, leaving you free to enjoy your special day. We can even pop back the next day to take them down if needed.
What are your prices?
Already have a budget in mind? Then please do let us know at your consultation! It really helps us to know so that we can help you plan designs to keep within it. We really don't want to be quoting you for wedding flowers that are way beyond what you have in mind.
Do you charge for a consultation?
No. Our consultations are free, friendly and fun with advice, pictures, information and a cup of tea....but with no obligation. They are for you to enjoy and a time when you can ask any questions you have. I love to hear your ideas but am happy to help too with inspiration and suggestions.
Do you work alone?
What information will you need from me?
We will need the date, time and place for your wedding. All other information can be gathered along the way.
It would be great to know if you have a colour scheme or theme in mind, colour samples are great and any pictures or ideas you may have are useful but not essential. We have plenty of ideas and advice to get you started.
Do you have more than one wedding on the same day?
We can take more than one booking for the same day but it is strictly limited and we will only do so if we are not compromising our high standards of personal and professional service.
How soon should we book our florist?
We recommend early consultations to book your preferred florist as dates start to get booked up a year in advance. Many good florists will limit the amount of weddings they take and prime summer dates do get booked up quicker than winter dates.
You don't need every detail in place this early; some details and decisions about your flowers can made nearer to your wedding date, but at least you'll have the security of knowing that you have your florist in place.
Do you require a deposit
Yes we normally ask for a deposit of 20% to secure your date.
Do you have a minimum order size?
Between May and July, we require a minimum order of £1000. There can be exceptions to this so it's worth getting in touch nevertheless.
How do we get our flowers?
We deliver and set up all flowers in plenty of time on the day of the wedding. Timings are all arranged and agreed with you before the day so that you know just what is happening and when.
All reception and decorative flowers will be set up for you and checked by me and my team just a few hours before your wedding so they are looking perfect for your arrival.
How far can you travel?
Around Edinburgh - we may make a small delivery charge to cover expenses depending on the location but please feel free to ask us about this.
Can you prepare a mock-up of my flowers before the big day?
Yes it is certainly possible but we do have to charge for this service as often your flowers are only available in bulk.
We understand this can be a really anxious time so we work especially hard to give you a really good feel for how your flowers will look on the day. Our relationship with our clients is based on trust and we are delighted that most of our brides do feel totally reassured after their first consultation, but if you are not we would want you to tell us.
For even more reassurance take look a look through our reviews on Facebook and Google.
