PROPOSALS & EXPECTATIONS
WHEN WILL WE SPEAK WITH OUR DESIGNER? Your designer will contact you within two business days of receiving a booking. At that time you may set up your initial floral consultation.
WHAT DO WE DO WITH THE RENTAL ITEMS? All rental items must be returned to Bellagala the Tuesday following your event. Boxes for transporting rental items will be provided by your floral designer.
WHAT IS THE DELIVERY CHARGE AND WHAT DOES IT INCLUDE? Delivery charges will vary depending on the floral package you select and the delivery distance. Delivery includes drop off at the location(s) of your choice. Delivery does not include any setup or transfer charges. Full service package options are available for delivery, setup and transfer. Additional travel fees may apply if your delivery location falls outside of a 40-mile radius.
CAN WE SEE LIVE SAMPLES OF DIFFERENT FLOWERS? You can ask your designer at your consultation; it may be possible to show you some live samples at that time. (Note: special requests to view live samples may require additional fees.)
TRADITIONALLY, FOR WHOM WILL I NEED TO PROVIDE FLORAL FOR MY WEDDING? Your bridal bouquet, the groom's boutonniere, bouquets and boutonnieres for your bridesmaids and groomsmen are the first things to think about. Next up: corsages and boutonnieres for parents, grandparents, godparents, ushers, readers, attendants, ring bearers, flower girls, and any other important participants in your wedding. After you have taken care of the people in your wedding, it's time to consider other arrangements such as flowers going down your aisle, outside your ceremony or reception sites, centerpieces, a cake topper, head table arrangements, or any other floral accents. Your designer will help you make sure you don’t miss anything!
DATES & ORDERS
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE FLOWERS I WANT AREN'T IN SEASON ON MY WEDDING DATE? Your designer will know during the planning stages whether or not your preferred blooms will be available on your date. If not, they can advise you of some viable alternatives, or you can also consider using premium-quality silk substitutes.
IS THERE A MINIMUM ORDER? The minimum order amount depends on the level you choose. The minimum order is calculated before service fees and tax. Please contact your sales consultant for more information.
ON WHICH LAPEL SHOULD THE MEN WEAR THEIR BOUTONNIERES? Traditionally, corsages and boutonnieres should be pinned on the left lapel. (Wrist corsages are typically worn on the left wrist as well.)
DO YOU PRESERVE THE BRIDAL BOUQUET? We do not offer preservation services at this time.
HOW DO WEDDING FLORISTS WORK
PRE-WEDDING PLANNING Once you book, your your florist will work with you to develop a customized quote for you based on your desires and vision. They will be able to guide you no matter what stage of planning you are in, whether you know exactly what kind of flowers you want or if you just know a color scheme. Once you have approved the quote, they get to work determining exactly how to bring that vision to fresh and vibrant life on your wedding day.
ON YOUR WEDDING DAY Your floral designer will arrive early (during the time you are getting ready) to deliver corsages, bouquets, and boutonnieres for you and the members of your wedding party, set up any floral design for the ceremony and deliver, prep and place any arrangements necessary for your reception. They will not leave until every blossom and stem is perfectly in place and ready for your big day!
