Wedding Floral Information
I hear it often from couples when planning their wedding. “Everything costs more than I thought it would.” I thought my couples would find the following information helpful in understanding why their flowers cost what they do for their special day.
Here are various factors that are wrapped into the prices of your floral designs. The cost of the flowers is just part of the price. It is a part which is greatly impacted by the time of year of your wedding and the floral varieties which you desire to have used in your designs. Will I be able to use locally grown blossoms or will I have to have them brought in from other areas? Then there is my time. As much as I love what a do as a wedding floral specialist, it is my livelihood and I don’t give my time away. I love being an independent floral designer without a storefront to man. It allows me more control over my time and how I choose to spend it. With regards to wedding flowers, there is the time I spend with you in the planning phase catching a glimpse into your vision and how I can bring it to life for you. I’m the one you start this floral journey with and I’m the one involved throughout the whole process. Then there the time in ordering, purchasing, and handling and processing your flowers the week of your wedding. Of course my time spent in the actual designing of your flowers several days prior to your special day. And then the time it takes to pack them up for deliveries and more time to set up and do any on site installations. Plus the time if you choose for me to return to pick up and tear down installations. You’re paying me as your wedding florist, yes for the cost of a flower but for more importantly for my expertise and knowledge and skills as a designer to be able to create for you the beautiful floral designs you’re wanting to make your wedding day perfect for you.
