What should I know about the consultation/proposal?
Initial consultations are free and run about one hour. During that time we will discuss your vision, venues, colors, themes, and budget. It is extremely helpful to bring along swatches/pictures of the dresses as well as any magazine pages or Pinterest links of flowers that have you excited. Knowing your budget is also extremely helpful. This allows us to make the right flowers choices for you and keep you within your budget. Having most of these details ready in advance helps to make a more productive consultation and accurate price quote for you.
Within a week of meeting, we will provide you with a quote and contract. Keep in mind that the first meeting is often a place to discuss ideas and concepts and get them on paper. Once you have decided to use Bloomsberry for your event, we know and understand that visions change and/or things need to be updated on the quote as time gets closer to your date (e.g., change in table count).
We’d love to sit and talk flowers with you! Please feel free to contact us today to schedule your appointment at our studio.
How do we secure our date?
Upon choosing Bloomsberry for your event, we require a 25% non-refundable retainer and a signed contract to hold your event date. Events are booked on a “first come” basis. We do not hold dates without retainer and signed contract. The final payment is due in full, 30 days prior to your event. We accept: cash, check and all major credit cards via our secure link on our contacts page.
