Do you provide DIY Services? We no longer provide flowers for DIY nor will we allow other wholesale flowers to be used. A big reason for this is it could cause a mismatch in styles. This is often associated with professional design work, which reduces our brand value. However, there are many affordable options that can be explored in order to reduce costs to your arrangements.
How can I have a Pinterest Wedding? We encourage the use of Pinterest for inspiration; however, it is important to note there are many variables to that Pinterest post. Where in the world was that particular wedding located and what flowers were available locally? What season? Were there photo alterations? Etc. It is common for people to assume the wedding flowers found on Pinterest were cheap, local, and not altered by photo shop. It is important to be aware of the changing seasons and prices to flowers. It is also important to know that what is available in Australia may not be in Canada. Lastly, it is important to note that sometimes lighting or other factors went into the overall look of the photo you found of a bouquet.
How come flowers cost so much? Flowers are subject to availability in every season. Sometimes a flower will have a difficult growing season or simply be high in demand based on the current trend. This automatically increases the price. It is also important to note that your flowers are usually coming from British Columbia or California, sometimes even Holland. Flowers need to be shipped carefully and quickly and those factors increase shipping rates.
How should I determine my budget? Your wedding flowers should represent 10-15% of your overall wedding budget. Everyone has a budget for their wedding and flowers are an important part of that. Remember your wedding flowers are most likely going to be in the majority of your photos. You want your great photographer to take pictures of your incredible flowers.

Why do you only do one wedding a weekend? We pride ourselves on our attention to detail and investment into each individual bride and groom; therefore, you become our priority for the entire week leading up your wedding day. There is simply not enough time in the week to give the attention necessary to more than one wedding. We work on a first come first serve basis, not who has the biggest budget.
Why do you have a minimum financial requirement? There is a lot of work that goes into a wedding outside of each boutonnière or bouquet. It takes the same amount of time regardless of wedding size to conduct the consultation and invoicing, draft the contract and correspond with you throughout your wedding planning. Therefore if the wedding flowers cost less than $750 our time is not appropriately compensated for.
