Frequently Asked Questions...
Q: Do you require a deposit when booking and why?
A: Yes, we require a 30% non-refundable deposit that will go towards your final payment. We require a deposit to reserve your date on our calendar. We take on a select amount of wedding each month to ensure quality and client satisfaction. You will not see us pumping out multiple weddings a weekend.
Q: What is the difference between Full Service Wedding Floral and A La Carte Wedding Floral?
A: A La Carte Floral is perfect for the couples who want to DIY aspects of their wedding, don't require consultations, do not require day of set up or onsite design. Often these are more intimate weddings or "bridal party only" orders. Our A La Carte couples are less hands on and only need to provide the following: Date, Deposit, Color Pallet (photo inspiration) and a description of the floral items needed and we will take care of the design elements and select seasonal blooms in your color pallet. All of your floral items will be hydrated, packed and labeled for you to pick up from our design studio in Waconia. All rental items must be returned within 3 days of your event. Delivery services can be added if we are available.
Our Full Service Wedding Floral is for the couple who wants more involvement and needs more floral and onsite design elements. This package includes 2 consultations and we offer "venue walk throughs" upon request. We have rental items that are available to you as well as renting from other local vendors. Basic onsite set up is included with this package for ease on the day of your wedding. Bloom selection is more hands on but sadly no specific bloom can be promised these days!
Q: Is there a extra fee for Delivery, Set up, Room Flips and Strikes (end of the night teardown service)?
A: A La Carte & Event Floral DOES NOT include any of the above services. Deliver and Set up (onsite design) can be added to your order. Prices for these service are based on design and availability and location.
Full Service Weddings INCLUDE our Delivery (up to two locations) and Basic setup. Being that we only book one full service wedding per date we are available to add the above listed services for a additional investment based on your designs needs.
Q: Do you also offer "everyday" flowers?
A: We are not your "typical" flower shop. We don't have fresh flowers weekly. We now offer Fresh BLOOM Subscriptions for those with Fresh Floral needs on a regular basis. This is perfect for your home or office!
Q: How do Fresh BLOOM Subscriptions work?
A: Select the frequency of Delivered BLOOMS you want to receive on the FIRST TUESDAY of each month purchased. We offer THREE, SIX and TWELVE month Subscriptions that run consecutively. If you are worried you won't be home for a deliver - no problem! We can arrange for you to pick up from our studio. We will reach out to you after purchase to confirm your order and gather recipients details for delivery!
Q: Do you offer Gift Cards?
A: Yes, we offer Gift Cards for our Fresh BLOOM Subscriptions and Custom Dried Arrangement but cannot be used towards Wedding/ Event Floral. We can also put together a custom gift card upon request!
Q: When are you open? Can we come in a shop or Inquire Wedding Floral needs?
A: Yes, we encourage you to stop in and get a feel for our vibe and aesthetic, chat wedding/ event floral needs, shop dried floral stems and arrangements and learn more about what we have to offer! We are open to the public Tuesdays & Wednesdays. Check our social medial @bloomstudioeventfloral for up to date hours and upcoming events!
Q: What additional fees can I expect so that I can prepare?
A: Our goal is communicate all the fees that you will see before you get your proposal, invoice and contract.
-Our prices for each design include BLOOMS and Materials for that Design.
-We include a 20% Design Rate to your final BLOOM total to cover the cost of working with an amazing team of experienced designers with over 10 years in this industry. We do not take our labor from your BLOOM budget.
-Any additional services that your design requires will be broken down for your approval. These services could include: Room Flips ($150+) , On-site Installations ($250+) , Teardowns ($500+) etc.
-If you are going to pay via Card we do include a pesky .03% Processing Fee. If you would like to waive this fee we can accept checks by hand any Tuesday or Wednesday 11-5pm.
*We offer customized payment option "breakdowns" when working together as long as your final balance is paid in full within 45 days of your Event date! We do require 30% deposit to HOLD your date on our calendar. This will be applied towards your remaining balance.
