The Royal Bee Process
Check your date: Click here to get in touch and see if your wedding/event date is available.
We’ll confirm whether we have availability and if so, send you a link to a detailed form for you to fill out with an inspiration board or Pinterest link attached. We will also book a phone consultation.
We’ll get to know each other, and chat about your vision for your wedding florals, going through photos and floral items, potential rentals and style ideas, and partner to co-create a plan to bring your vision to life. During which I will create a Pinterest Board for just the two of us to share ideas throughout the process. This will help guide me in creating an accurate proposal and your perfect wedding or event!
Within a few days after our consultation, we’ll send over a written proposal filled with inspirational photos and notes for you to review and sign. The proposal is not set in stone, edits can be made after signature so no worries, you don't have to know everything right away. Payment is as follows and retainer is due within 3 days of signature.
- 30% Retainer to hold your date and book me as your floral designer
- 35% Approx. four weeks before the wedding/event
- 35% Approx. two weeks before the wedding/event
We do have early signing incentives, given within 48 hours of receiving proposal for booking.
We will have lots of communication, and idea building if needed throughout the months leading up to your wedding/event. We have one last meet up/phone chat or venue walk through (if needed), 3-5 weeks prior to your big day, to go over all of the minutia to make sure everything is just perfect.
Take a spa day and rest easy...
knowing that your florals will arrive at your event looking every bit as gorgeous as
you have dreamed up, if not even more so.
What’s the payment schedule?
- 30% retainer to hold your date
- 35% four weeks before your event
- 35% two weeks before your event
What happens if we need to make some cuts?
I’m super flexible and will cut out up to 15% up to 4 week mark, if needed, adding as much as you’d like. This should cover any centerpiece changes or other minor changes. The 15% is based on the signed proposal amount, so we can build a smaller proposal to sign and add more later if that’s makes you more comfortable.
Do I keep the flowers after the wedding?
Yes, if you’ve purchased the vases, then they are all yours, if vase were rented I must return to pick up vases at the end of the wedding. I charge a strike fee (differs depending on location) to come back and clean up. If there are rentals this fee is mandatory and I take all rental pieces and leftover florals inside of them, home. Although, there are some vases that can hold a removable plastic liner making floral arrangements easy to take out and give away to guests.
Can we use in season and local flowers to save money?
It might be surprising, but most flower prices don’t fluctuate too much even when they aren’t local, and if we only did local flowers the options would diminish greatly. But yes it is common to use flowers that are in season.
Can I show you photos of flowers I like?
Absolutely! As part of the initial consultation I must see photos to understand your vision. We can share photos via email, and I set up a Pinterest board for each wedding or event to help us both come up with ideas. check out our Pinterest here.
Do you do florals for other kinds of events?
Yes! We also do florals for memorials and love knowing we’re helping someone make such a sad, yet important day more beautiful. We are also open to designing other selected events as available, and would love to work with you to create an incredible atmosphere for your gala, store opening, birthday extravagnaza, or any event you want to beautify with flowers.
