How many months in advance should I book my floral design services?
For weddings that will take place during high season (May - Sept), the earlier the better! Most brides will book with us anywhere from 9 - 12+ months out.
Where can you deliver to?
We travel throughout the Bay Area + Napa/Sonoma for weddings + special events. For local deliveries (a la carte orders) we offer delivery + pick-up in Napa. We are also available to travel out of state + country (inquire for rates)!
What should I prepare for our phone consultation?
Here's a list of important information that we need in order to create your custom floral design proposal.
- Confirmed venue + event date
Event theme (if you have one) or aesthetic (provide a few key words)
Number of bridal party + immediate family members who will need personal flowers
Floral vision for ceremony
Floral vision + table layout for reception
Do you have minimums?
Our 2021 minimum for peak wedding season (May - September) is $4k pre-tax. Our minimum during off season is $2k pre-tax (Oct - April). We can occasionally make exceptions for smaller events depending on our schedule and your floral needs. Please keep in mind that these minimums are for weddings within a 50-mile radius of San Francisco. Events further may require a higher minimum.
What is your typical pricing?
All of our weddings are highly customized so there isn't a standard price sheet we send out. Once we've had a chance to get to know you and your event vision, we will propose a floral design plan that achieves your vision + budget goals as best as we can. If there are items on your wish list that are out of budget, we are always happy to come up with creative alternatives for you.
Do you offer other decor items aside from flowers?
Yes! Please let us know in your consultation call if you'd like to rent items such as candles, signage, easels, and other decorative accents.
