Frequently Asked Questions

 

Where are you located?

Our home base is in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We consider “local weddings" to be within 100 miles of Albuquerque. These days you can find us traveling around the state as well as across the country. Places we have been recently include: Virginia, South Carolina, Austin, Michigan, Dallas, and Marfa, Texas.

 

When should I book you?

We limit the amount of weddings we do each year so that we can give our clients a highly-personalized experience. We usually recommend booking 9-12 months out from your wedding date. As soon as you have a date and especially once you have a venue, let us know.

 

How many weddings do you book per weekend?

Preferably, we like to focus on one wedding a day. Sometimes we do more, depending on the scale and budget.

 

 What is the average cost of flowers?

Typically, florals account for 10-15% of your overall budget. If you really like flowers the way we do, you might want to bump that up to 20%.

 

Do you have a minimum for weddings?

While our local events do not have a strict minimum, events which require travel more than 100 miles from Albuquerque carry a minimum of $5000.

 

Can I rent things from you?

You sure can! We are happy to rent our fabulous collection of vases and containers to you along with our unique chuppahs, arches, donut wall, and other structures. Send us an email with RENTALS in the subject line and we can discuss pricing. Rentals are available to event professionals and non-floriography clients. Floriography clients do receive discounts on rentals.

 

Do you deliver, set-up, and take down flowers for weddings?

All of our full service weddings include delivery and set-up services. We typically take care of donating flowers after an event is finished.

 

Help, I don't speak flower!

Don’t worry- we are skilled at figuring out what you want without you being able to articulate it.  Thanks to the amazing internet, we now have blogs, websites, and Pinterest to help us make sure we both understand each other. Sharing as many inspiration images as you can is extremely helpful as we craft your design plan.

 

Can you make vendor recommendations?

Oh yes! We have lots of talented friends in the industry that we are happy to suggest. Be sure to ask us for our list of preferred vendors.

 

How do we get this ball rolling?!

Please fill out the form on our contact page to get started. Once we get that from you, we will be in touch about more details (you’ll get a more detailed questionnaire from us), and we will set up a consultation.

 

How do we make this thing between us official?

Yay! We are a perfect match! To secure your date we ask for a non-refundable deposit of 25% of the total of your contract. After that, we continue to refine your contract (quantities and style)  until it’s just right and you can give “flowers” a satisfying “check” off your to-do list. Final details and payments are due no later than two weeks prior to your wedding.
