How does the design process work?
Pre-made bouquets are shipped as soon as payment is confirmed. Custom orders are typically assembled and shipped within 6 to 8 weeks. It is advisable to contact me four (4) months to a year in advance of your wedding or Quinceanera. At your concept consultation, we will chat about your bouquet "wish list!" This will give me valuable insight regarding your personality, style, and floral preferences so that your bouquet complements your wedding attire and/or theme. We will work together too create the colors and embellishments that will be uniquely designed for you. With that being said, no two bouquets are exactly alike as each bespoke bouquet is custom designed. A 50% down payment is required to secure your bouquet order. I will contact you via email/text or phone as soon as I begin your design process and keep you abreast of my process along the way. As your bouquet design nears completion, I will contact you to let you know when your bouquet will be shipped, and by what method (UPS or USPS). All balance must be paid in full thirty (30) days prior to shipping. Because of the fragility of the bouquets designs, I highly advise my clients to add insurance to the shipping, as well a signature required address.
Can I include my own items?
Yes, I love that idea! A brooch bouquet is an excellent conversation starter at the wedding! Some ideas could be: but not limited to; a framed picture of a loved one or your engagement picture. Remember it has to be a very tiny picture. Shrunk down to fit a locket frame, maybe approximately one (1) inch.Grandma's pearls, handkerchief, or a patch of lace from a special wedding gown or even grandpa’s watch! I would love to include any watch. We could set it to the moment you become married!
Why are they so heavy?
My brooch bouquets have a lot of jewelry plus they are assembled with florist methods using
wire. This construction makes them much more durable than a DIY with glue.
Some have 70 to 100 pieces of sparkling rhinestones, pearls, and crystal. This is the true difference between a D.I.Y. or a hastily assembled knock off design.
Can my bouquet be made with fresh flowers?
Fresh flowers wither too quickly and this particular style of bouquets are created as keepsake designs.
