Wedding and Events FAQ
WHEN SHOULD I BOOK MY CONSULTATION
We can begin planning at any time! Consultation times are scheduled on a case by case basis but are during shop hours. During wedding season, our consultation availability is limited so that our talented designers can devote their time ensuring every wedding is created with complete attention to detail.
HOW LONG WILL MY CONSULTATION TAKE??
Usually one hour. If you live out of state or are unable to meet in person for your consultation, we will be happy to speak with you over the phone and work on ideas via email.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO MY CONSULTATION?
Inspiration! Share your Pinterest wedding board with your consultant, bring in clips from magazines, color swatches, photos of your wedding dress and bridesmaid dresses if available, and if you have an idea of your design let your consultant know, i.e. romantic, rustic, woodland fairy tale, country, classic, modern, glamorous, shabby chic, etc.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE THE LIST OF MY WEDDING FLOWERS AND THEIR PRICES (BID)?
Usually a week after the consultation.
WHAT IS YOUR SERVICE AREA?
We will travel as far as our clients need us to. Petal Talk is here to serve you, our brides & event planners.
WHAT FLOWERS ARE IN SEASON FOR THE MONTH I AM GETTING MARRIED?
Your bid will include a list of recommended flowers for your wedding based on your colors, styles and seasonal availability. Ask your designer about any special requests and we will do our best to locate a source!
HOW DO I BUDGET FOR MY WEDDING FLOWERS?
Your wedding consultant will make several recommendations and offer ideas to fit any budget that still coexist with your color scheme and design.
CAN I SEE YOUR PREVIOUS WORK?
We have a plethora of photos on our website from previous weddings, professional photos & photo shoots. See our Bridal Bouquet Portfolio, Pinterest & Instagram pages.
CAN I SEE MY FLOWER DESIGNS BEFORE THE WEDDING DAY?
We do offer mock-ups for an additional fee. Mock -up fees are priced at retail value of the flowers plus a labor cost and they become yours to keep after the preview. In order to represent the flowers that are seasonally appropriate, the mock ups must be done fairly close to the wedding date so that we can minimize variation between the preview and day-of presentation.
WILL YOU COORDINATE WITH MY OTHER VENDORS, I.E. VENUE, CAKE DECORATOR?
Yes, Petal Talk will happily coordinate with other vendors if your event delivery & setup call for it!
DO YOU PROVIDE SPECIFIC PACKAGES?
No, we do not. We build each proposal custom to each bride & event.
DO YOU PROVIDE DECOR RENTALS, AND AT WHAT COST?
Yes! Petal Talk carries some event rental inventory or we will help you source from local rental vendors. Please ask your consultant for pricing & availability.
WHAT ARE YOUR DELIVERY, SETUP, TRANSFER & STRIKE FEES?
Delivery, setup, transfer & strike fees are determined based on the complexity of each situation. Your proposal will detail these fees based on your specific needs.
WHEN IS MY PAYMENT DUE?
Once you select Petal Talk as your event florist, we will ask you to sign a contract & submit a $100.00 deposit. The remainder of your payment is due two weeks prior to your event. Payments can be made in cash, check or credit card.
WHAT IS YOUR REFUND & CANCELLATION POLICY?
The deposit made when you sign your contract is not refundable. Due to the time investment in the planning of your event made by Petal Talk. Your event can be cancelled & all payments (other than your deposit) returned up until the point when your flowers & material orders are placed. These orders are placed three weeks prior to your event. No refunds are possible within three weeks of your event. Signing a contract and paying a deposit will hold your wedding date. If we are the florist for you, we suggest holding your date as soon as possible. Changes can still be made to the bid after the deposit and contract have been provided. Changes can be made to the bid up to 3 weeks before the wedding.
