  • The blooms I want are in the Pinterest/upscale category but I only have a simple/average budget. Can I still have them in my bouquet?

Of course! It is not uncommon for brides to have much larger, more luxurious or completely different bouquet than their bridesmaids.


  • How many weddings do you typically do a weekend?

Generally, we only try to do one event per weekend but there are a few weekends where we double book simple weddings.


  • Do you have packages?

We do not offer packages in the traditional sense of your tier one package comes with (1) bridal bouquet, (3) bridesmaid bouquets and (4) boutonnieres for X amount of dollars. It is our belief that every couple no matter their budget is entitled to 100% custom wedding flowers. However, we do have a "Charming Collection". This Collection is designed for couples who don't have a large budget or for couples who are eloping. CLICK HERE to contact us for more details and some examples of bouquets from our "Charming Collection".


  • Do you sell just flowers for DIY brides?

We currently do not sell just flowers to DIY brides but it is something we are thinking about in the future. Please let us know if you would like more details.


  • Do you travel?

Yes! We love to travel! Fly us anywhere with no additional travel fees. Our favorite wedding venue to travel to is At Bear Tree in Pittsburg, NH.


  • I live out of town. How can we meet and do a consultation?

We have worked with a bunch of out of town couples before. We have the ability to do consultations over the phone, over email, through facetime or even skype.


  • How far in advance should I book my consultation?

We recommend booking early. Most brides book with us a year to 6 months out from their weddings. We can, of course, accommodate last-minute events but sometimes that can mean limited flower or color choice. We've booked weddings that were over 18 months out! Provided you have your date and venue locked in there is no reason to wait. 


  • How long will my consultation take? What should I bring to be prepared?

Consultations for simple and average typically take between 1/2 hour to 1 hour. For larger, more intricate weddings consultations can last up to 1 and 1/2 hours. We recommend bringing any color swatches you are hoping to match to, any photos of bouquets and arrangements you love, a rough idea of your budget, as well as an open mind. We hear brides come in and say no I refuse to have carnations but when they find out that most of their favorite bouquets have them they change their mind. We promise they don't make them like they used to! 


  • Do you offer delivery, setup, and takedown?

We do! Most often Simple weddings are done as pick up or delivery only. For larger events, we do offer full setup and takedowns.


  • Do you have a minimum spend? Why?

We do have a minimum spend of $500 to book with us. As a wedding and special event only florist, we do not have a retail store to resell the unused stems. So in order to give wedding couples the best floral arrangements and bouquets without compromising any designs or value we set a minimum spend. If you do not meet the minimum spend please feel free to reach out and we would be more than happy to discuss other options for you. 


  • Will you coordinate with my other vendors?

We love working with other vendors! We find that it makes everyone's job easier. The vendors we work the closest with are the venue owners, bakers, and photographers. Still, haven't found an exceptional sweet treat/cake baker? Check out of favorite girls at Oh Sweet!


  • What's your favorite flower? Why?

Tulips by far! Tulips come in hundreds of different shapes, sizes, colors, and even textures. This past year Emily planted over 250 new tulip bulbs in her garden. The tulip is the 11th wedding anniversary present and it's said that the tulip's velvety black center represents a lover's heart, darkened by the heat of passion. How romantic!


  • The more greens in the design the cheaper, right?

This might be one of the biggest misconceptions we come across. While some more traditional greens are very affordable newer greens and more trendy greens such as agonis, italian ruscus and eucalyptus are just as expensive as some flowers. P.S. baby's breath is sometimes lumped into this category and while it is a very traditional filler, it's just as expensive as other fillers.
