How do we secure our event date with you? What information do I receive?
Simple. Once we've had a phone or in-person consultation, we provide you with a quote (which is valid for 14 days). When you’ve confirmed all the details, we will send you a contract to sign and an invoice for the deposit. Once this is signed and paid for, we are secured for your event date. From here, depending on how in-depth your event is, we may provide you with a detailed proposal (usually $5000 and upwards). The proposal is a detailed outline of the elements of your event.
What deposit do you require? What forms of payment do you accept?
We require a 25% nonrefundable deposit to secure your booking. Our preferred method of payment is direct deposit, alternatively, if you wish to pay via credit card, you may through Paypal (you will incur a 3% surcharge, care of Paypal).
Can we arrange a consultation?
Yes of course. I’d love to meet you and discuss all your ideas. If your schedule is hectic, we can hold a zoom or Skype meeting. Alternatively, a good old fashion phone consultation is also fine.
How early should I book my wedding/event flowers?
We recommend touching base with us once you have booked your venue. This will assist us in providing suggestions for your venue. We will discuss your style and the look and feel you wish to achieve, factoring labour within the space we will be working in. However, we can accept bookings even as short as a few weeks out, it all depends if we have availability, though the earlier the better.
