FLORAL DESIGN STUDIO
PLANNING & DESIGN
To explain a bit more about how we work...
Get in touch, and tell us a bit about your wedding. We can send you our wedding checklist and provide you with some general information on pricing.
We can, and usually recommend a consultation over a coffee or drink (or FaceTime - but you have to make your own coffee) where we can give further thought to your ideas, budget, logistics and depending on the season what flowers are available.
We will want to understand your style, influences and the florals you have in mind for your big day. Any inspirational images you have and Pinterest boards are really useful. However, if you really do not know where to start, then we can just have a chat and get to know you better.
We will then put together a Proposal and Mood Board, providing both a written and visual reference for the florals and costings. Although, the details of which often evolve as do your wedding plans which is fine.
So... from the early concept stages, through to your wedding day we will work with you and your other suppliers to create beautiful florals from romantic bouquets and flower crowns, to tumbling foliage garlands and installations full of movement.
We can also assist in hiring vases, urns, candlesticks and tea-light holders to style the day and provide those finishing touches.
When to get in touch?
On average we are booked approximately 9 - 12 months before the wedding, which allows plenty of time to plan all things floral.
When we started out we would usually hear from couples about 3 - 5 months before the wedding and that's still enough time, if we are available.
Our busiest months are from May to September and the weekend dates over this period are usually booked first. If you are getting married outside these months, or mid-week, then there is greater flexibility in our schedule and availability,
d.i.y wedding flowers
If you are planning, along with some crafty friends (always recommended) to do your own wedding flowers and need help with bouquets, buttonholes or flower crowns then we can help with our 'bouquets and buckets' service.
In short, we will provide the normal service in terms of planning, designing and putting together beautiful arrangements for the bridal party.
Then, for the flowers you want to arrange, we can provide you with seasonal flower buckets for you to collect and get creative!
If you want some guidance, mentoring and pointers on things like: number of flowers needed; what flowers to use; techniques; timings and how to get the best of your flowers then we offer a one off 1-2-1 consultation and email support for £50.
Meaning that you can feel prepared, organised and know that you are up to the job on the run up to your big day. If you want further information then get in touch.
