Full Service Floral Design - Frequently Asked Questions

How far in advance do I need to book?

We suggest a minimum of 6-12 months but can work within a shorter planning timeframe, if necessary. We do recommend paying your 25% non-refundable deposit as early as possible to secure your date as we only take a limited number of weddings each weekend. After your deposit is paid we can easily sort through changes and revisions to the order details as nothing needs to be firmly set in stone until 4 weeks prior to your wedding day.

Are some flowers only available certain months of the year?

Yes, we are at the mercy of Mother Nature and weather conditions have a significant impact on availability of flowers. For example, peonies are only available for a few weeks in mid-Spring but the specific availability often changes from year to year, depending on how cold the winter has been and how wet the early weeks of spring are. You can download a copy of our Favorite Wedding Flowers to see a snapshot of what flowers are usually available during each month of the year.

Do you rent vases and other items or do I have to buy my own?

We offer a wide range of rentals including vases, urns, candles, votives, candle holders and more! To the extent you're looking for something we don't have in our inventory, we're happy to recommend a local rental company.

How much do flowers usually cost?

There is a lot of variability when it comes to wedding flower prices. We generally recommend allocating 10-15% of your total wedding budget to flowers, but if you want florals to be a significant component of the experience for the day, we would recommend allocating closer to 25-30%.

Where are you located?

Our design team is based in Atlanta, GA. We coordinate flowers for couples getting married all across metro Atlanta and surrounding areas.

How do I schedule a consultation?

The first step is to complete our inquiry form, which you may access here. Once received, we will then confirm whether your date is available. From there, we will send you an online questionnaire as the first phase of our consultation process. Learn more about our process here.

I'm out-of-state and not able to do a face-to-face consultation. Is that a problem?

No, not at all as we manage all of our communication online. If you’re unable to meet face-to-face, we can easily coordinate via virtual meeting or manage everything over email.

Will you deliver my flowers on the day?

Absolutely! We’ll coordinate the time and location with you during the planning process.

Is there a minimum spend?

Yes, we require a $3,000 minimum investment for our floral services.

What should I bring to my consultation?

It's completely fine if details of your wedding are still evolving, but we do suggest that you do a little research about the types of flowers and designs you like. Everyone’s tastes are different, and we want to ensure we help capture your vision for the day! It's helpful to also have a color palette chosen as well as an idea of what you and your wedding party will be wearing (colors and style of gowns/suits). You're welcome to bring photos of your floral inspiration and bridal gown or send us a link to your Pinterest board here. Remember, you don’t need to have thought through every detail, but even one or two inspiration photos can point us in the right direction. We’re always happy to provide suggestions and options for ceremony and reception styling ideas as well. If you're thinking of leaving the entire process to us, you may want to consider our wedding packages. You can read more about them here.

How do I secure my date?

We ask for a 25% non-refundable deposit along with a signed contract. The remaining balance with damage deposit (if you are renting items) is due four weeks prior to the event date. Please note that we do not tentatively book wedding dates.

Can I make changes after my consultation?

Of course! You're welcome to make adjustments throughout the wedding planning process, up to 30 days before your event. Please note that once your contract is signed and deposit received, we only allow additions of equal or greater value.

What is Full Service design?
