It depends on your wedding date. For the busiest times of year (May/June and September/October) the earlier you contact us the better. 8-10 months before your wedding date is usually sufficient to secure our services. However, quite often our clients will contact us to begin the process up to 12 months before the event. We have also planned gorgeous events for clients in a much tighter time frame- two weeks and in one case a few days! Because we book an extremely limited number of events don’t put off calling us too long.
What is your service area?
Flourish travels up to 1.5 hours out of Sacramento,Ca city proper for normal event set-up. But we could be plied with warm tropical breezes if called upon to design a destination wedding.
Does Flourish offer wedding flower packages and what are your prices?
Please see our Investment page for more information on these subjects.
Do you offer other décor items besides flowers?
Yes! We are happy to offer a wide variety of rental decor items for exclusive use of Flourish’s clients. Including vases of all shapes and sizes, several styles of candle hurricanes, large pillars, stone and metal urns, a custom-made wrought iron chuppa and custom metal aisleabras, vintage glass containers and props- just to name a few. Several of our rentals are specially designed to the fit the décor of the venues we work at most often.
I live out of town/away at college/currently under deep cover in the jungle. Can I send you a retainer to hold my wedding date on your calendar and then meet with you closer to the big day to go over the details? Absolutely! We require a retainer to hold your date on Flourish’s calendar (credited towards your balance). We can then solidify details and make decor choices when it is convenient for your schedule.
Have you worked at my venue before? Flourish is proud to not only have worked at most of the wedding venues in the Greater Sacramento area but to also be on the referral lists of The Citizen Hotel, Wine and Roses Hotel, Arden Hills Country Club, The Vizcaya and The Grand Island Mansion just to name a few. But, if we have not worked at your venue before we are happy to do a site visit with you for a minimal meeting fee.
What sort of information should I bring to our meeting? Bringing as many of the following items as possible with you to the consultation will help us get the most out of our meeting:
*Pictures of flowers and floral designs that inspire you. You can find floral pictures in magazines, on the internet , Pinterest or in books. If you come across pictures of flowers or floral designs that you do not like bring along those pictures as well.
*Pictures of the bride’s dress, the attendants and men’s ensembles.
*Swatches of the colors you are working with to build your wedding’s color palette are very helpful. Fabric, paint swatches or pictures can all be used to illustrate the color themes of your wedding.
*Bring a list of people you will need to supply with corsages and boutonnieres.
I feel like I will need help choosing flowers and designs. Who should I bring with me to our design meeting? Your fiancé, a friend, a family member or someone else that knows the style and look of your wedding can all be very helpful when making decisions and choosing flowers and designs. But limit the number of people you bring with you to our meeting to no more than two additional people. Everyone has an opinion and too many people with opinions can make our appointment long and confusing.
You many want to include the person that is paying for the flowers for the wedding in our meeting. That way they have an idea of what is involved in the decor and can ask any questions they may have at the consultation.
