Weddings

 Weddings can be overwhelming and lots of work.  That’s where I can step in and help.   With lots of knowledge and time spent working with flowers and clients I always look forward to creating a moment that is truly yours.  With the details of colors, textures and quality, that’s my specialty.  We hand design, personalize, and create exquisite floral design to fit your wedding personality. We like to think "outside the vase" by  utilizing a wide selection of flowers.   Flowers are picked from our own grown cutting gardens, or sourced though local wholesalers.  

We are located in Central Vermont.  Able to deliver and set up weddings in all locations such as Waterbury, Richmond, Williston, Essex, Jericho, Cambridge, Stowe, South Burlington and Burlington.  We will travel to do destination weddings.


How to get started

We offer a free one hour consultation for anyone looking to do a wedding with us.  After an hour we charge $50 per hour to visit. We suggest having our check list (located in our contact us form) completed, so that we are using each other’s time well.   The list as follows


Date of Wedding
Number of Bridesmaids and Attendants

Number of Groomsmen

Number of Corsage and Boutonieeres for family or friends

Ceremony Location

Reception Location

Dress Colors

Overall Color Palates and Style

Ideas/ Pictures using Pinterest or emails

 

We then arrange a meeting or a phone conference to discuss your wedding.  Within a week an estimate will be emailed to you.  From there we discuss.  If everything looks great, we require a signed contract and a 25% non refundable deposit to save the date.


Budget

Besides the beauty of weddings, there are always concerns about pricing.  The Knot suggests you spend 8% of your overall wedding budget on flowers.  Its safe to say that, this is very appropriate for a floral budget.  The only exceptions would depends on the type of flowers used, if they are in season, how far the flowers must travel and any other services needed.  I would take the 8% as a guideline.  We work with many types of budgets and are willing to work with you so that you can achieve beautiful flowers for your big day.  With summers being very busy we only take two weddings a weekend (not on the same days).  This is to ensure that we can give the most attention needed to any occasion.
