The cost of wedding flowers is often regarded as a mystery by couples and people often feel that florists with no price lists available are out to swindle folk out of their hard earned wedding budget. I will try to explain here why you will rarely find a definitive and permanent price list online with most good wedding and event florists.
We take great pride and passion in designing each wedding down to the last detail and each one we provide flowers for is unique. Every flower has a different price, and costs will vary depending on the types of the flowers and foliage used, the scale of the event, the size of the items and even the time of year. The price of red roses for example, will skyrocket around 14th February for obvious reasons! As such, its very difficult for all florists to provide a set price list that is fair to our clients because no two weddings are the same - your scheme will be unique to you and your requirements.
We will always ask you if you have a budget in mind, and its not because we want to take advantage. It's because it wastes our time and your time to offer you a design scheme that you don't have the budget for, and the process of designing your wedding flowers is much more efficient for everyone if we have an idea of what you'd like to spend. There are endless combinations of flowers and designs, so there is usually always a solution for almost every budget and we are more than happy to suggest ideas to suit.
Frequently asked questions
How will you design our wedding flowers?
Once you've made contact with us, depending on your preference, we can either meet up for an informal chat at your venue or for a coffee somewhere convenient to discuss your ideas for the big day. Having said that we have designed entire weddings over email/phone with the help of Pinterest with brides based overseas so it really depends on what is convenient for you. We often use Pinterest to collate ideas and images for inspiration, though we'd be delighted to make suggestions if you are lacking inspiration or don't know where to start. We'll then start to design a scheme for you, and provide you with a quote usually within a week.
How much will the consultation process cost?
Many florists will charge you a consultation fee to discuss your flowers but at Flowerjam we offer this as a complimentary service.
How will you provide me with a quote?
Once we have locked down your exact requirements, we'll email you a Creative Proposal document that details your wedding flowers including moodboard pictures for reference and an exact price quote that will include absolutely everything and a breakdown of all costs, including labour & delivery. We then ask for a deposit to book out your wedding date in our diary, with the balance due 4 weeks before the wedding date.
Are there any limitations to what flowers I can have?
Whilst many flowers are available all year round, there are certain varieties that have specific seasons - Peonies for example are an early summer flower only and simply wouldn't be available for say, a winter wedding. We will always be happy to suggest alternatives to get the desired style & colour you require.
Are you insured?
Yes. We'll be happy to provide a copy of the certificate if you require it.
How far are you willing to travel?
We are Surrey based but have flowered weddings all over the country and are more than happy to travel. We'll charge 45p per mile for travel costs which is a standard practice with the majority of florists.
Hopefully that has answered any questions you may have, though please feel free to get in contact with us if you are any further queries via the form on the contact page and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
