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.
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 variety of vases, several styles of candle hurricanes, large pillars, stone and metal urns, a custom-made wrought iron chuppa and custom metal aisle stands, 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, we are also happy to be on the referral lists of many of the area’s event spaces. We have also worked at many venues in Tahoe, Sonoma, Napa Valley, Amador County and other Northern California wedding sites. But, if we have not worked at your venue before, we would be happy to do a site visit with you for a minimal meeting fee.
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. Additionally, you should include the person that is paying for the flowers for the wedding, if it is not yourself, in our meeting. Being at the meeting will give them an idea of what is involved in the decor and give them a chance to ask any questions they may have at the consultation.
Do you deliver flowers or arrangements for occasions such as the holidays, birthdays, anniversaries and etc?
Unfortunately at this time Flourish does not offer daily deliveries.
