Here is my typical process from day 1 to your wedding day, i hope this helps and guides you.
My typical process with a couple:
Step 1: Bride & Groom will get in contact by phone or email telling me there names, wedding date and floral inspiration so far for their big day.
Step 2: Discussion of flowers for their big day either by email (depending if they know what flowers and designs they want) or by meeting.
Step 3: I work out a quote for the flowers chosen by couples, if their wedding day is more than a year away then the quote will be estimated quote and then revise the quote when its a year away and then will become a fixed quote.
Step 4: Deposit is worked out by 20% of the total. I take up to 2 weddings a day depending on the size of weddings so if you want to book me, putting a deposit down will secure your day with me and you won't have to worry about anyone else booking the same date as yours.
Step 5: Once deposit is paid receipt will be sent by email. Constant communication is welcomed as sometimes things change in numbers or a couple might see another flower that they think they want to add to their own wedding flowers or tweak something to designs.
Step 6: Any new designs that a couple want, will be quoted and then confirmed and added to invoice.
Step 7: Future meetings, i offer as many as you like. The normal amount is between 1-3 meetings over a year. This of course all depends how far away couples live, convenience and schedule. Some brides i don't meet and we communicate by email, some brides i only meet once and the rest of communication is by email, some brides i meet 1-5 over a year it all depends on what you prefer.
Step 8: The final balance is due 1 month before your wedding day and any final changes i advise to make now.
Step 9: I design your wedding flowers and you either collect them from my workshop or i deliver and set up and you enjoy their beautifulness!!
