Questions and Answers

How much do Wedding Flowers generally cost?

Driftwood Blue Floral Events

This is one of the most common questions I get asked as a Wedding floral designer and one that really needs some explanation.  After all, for most of you it’s your first time exploring the world of Wedding flowers and most just don’t know where to begin to understand how much it costs, or in fact what you are getting for your money. 

Wedding Flowers set the look and feel for your Wedding with their softness, texture and colour injection, without flowers things can look fairly ordinary.  Combine these with other elements like lighting and linens, metallics or glassware and you have something sensational! 

I have a great blog post about this topic and you can grab it here

Wedding flowers are not the same as just buying flowers from a standard florist or even just picking up a bunch of flowers from a store. There is so much more to it than this and once you understand why this is the case you will better understand why they generally cost quite a bit more. 

You'll find out the general cost of not just your bridal florals but table centrepieces, arbour florals, bridal table arrangements, hanging installations and much more! Helping you to better budget for your Wedding and aim for about 10% of your overall Wedding budget is generally a good estimate!

I've just got engaged, what now?

For most of newly engaged couples, this is an exciting time in their lives! 

When the excitement has died down it generally turns into being a little daunting, so many seek out your friends advice, your colleagues, your mum, anyone who’s been there before…and that’s totally normal. 

You will get a ton of information, some great and not so great stories about experiences and some good and no so good advice. You will also seek out information on the Internet, researching Pinterest images to find your style, go to Bridal Expo's and start looking into ideas.  Which are all great things to do too but can also becoming overwhelming too!

I’ve been there and it’s an exciting and challenging task and depending on how you like to do things and how involved you like to be, these tips below should help most of you get started and off on the right track!

1. Create a new email address for all things Weddings - so you don't miss a thing!

2. Be Flexible with your date - consider a mid week date especially if you are on a budget and with dates generally quite tight since COVID postponements, try and be a little flexible

3. Set up your own Wedding Pinterest Board - so you can collect all the images in one place to gather your ideas and inspiraiton

4. Create a list of Vendors or Suppliers for your MUST HAVE items - do your research, ask friends and family who they recommend and then make contact and start the conversation. Find out what they do for you beyond what they provide on the day.  Work out what's important to you! 

5. Plan together - Find out how your partner wants to be involved and go from there and think of ways to involve them if they are unsure.  Share the load so it doesn't get overwhelming!

What is your style and how do you design?

Driftwood Blue Floral Events

 

I have always loved creating designs that reflect natural aspects whilst combining this with the elegance and softness of soft florals, fabrics and metallic elements like gold, silver, and iron and complimenting the natural surrounds and buildings or your venue space.  By ensuring consideration of these aspects, I take a holistic approach to your styling and design to ensure seamless integration to my overall styling. I have available a range of hire décor to suit and if I don’t have what you are looking for, I can source whatever you need!  By working with local quality and trusted suppliers in the region, there is never any need to spend time searching on your own.  



My ultimate passion is to create styling that is truly complimentary to the space.  Such as combining rustic country elements with amped up elegance, this Country Chic style is perfect for a venue or space with natural surrounds where you’d like to create a relaxed and beautiful feel and ambience. My approach would be the same for any space I work in, whether it be modern or contemporary, such as a city venue or space, I always style to suit the surroundings and what’s already in place. Taking on the less is more approach and by adding in complimentary elements and statement pieces, we can work with you to create that WOW look and feel for your Wedding Day!

What is your process?

Driftwood Blue Floral Events

Being located in the outer area of North of Brisbane, we are only a short 45minute drive to either

the city, Hinterland and most Sunshine Coast regions so we are based in a fabulous spot for most gorgeous venues that we work with in our region.   We also have many options to suit our clients!

 

I offer both a mobile consultative service and a studio space by appointment, whereby we can work through your design concept together and you are able to be involved as much or as little as you’d like. Initial consultations are usually by video appointment, with 1 hour design sessions and final consultations face to face included as part of my inclusive services.   

How Does it work?

Whether you are looking for just bridal party bouquets and pieces, ceremony set ups and styling, or

full reception styling design, my focus is always on what you need and your vision for your Wedding Day!

I understand that searching for a floral stylist that you can trust and can meet your budget is important and

can be difficult, so I take the time to talk to you about what you are looking to achieve which helps me better understand your vision for your Wedding Day! I offer varying levels of package options too which also helps me to achieve your vision and all within budget!

 

It’s all pretty simple really! 

We chat and meet, you book and secure my services for your date, we design together, I provide ongoing support and then I create and delivery on your Wedding Day!

We service and deliver from Brisbane, Coastal, Hinterland and Sunshine Coast regions!

(if delivery is outside the Brisbane metro region a small additional delivery fee is charged)

Payment plans and options are also available! (Minimum booking is $600)

 

If this sounds like someone you want to work with, contact me for a free introductory chat!

I can’t wait to meet you and chat all about your Wedding Day!
