FAQ

Do you charge for consultations?

My first consultation is complimentary. Once you book your wedding with us, I am delighted to meet with you to view centerpiece examples and choose final flower choices. I am available to visit your venue with you to help you decide on your final floral selections. I find that meeting 2 to 3 times is adequate.

When should I schedule a consultation?

Clients often contact me to begin the process up to 12 months before the event. I have also planned gorgeous events for clients in a much tighter time frame- two weeks and in a couple of instances just a few days! However to assure I am available for your date, I suggest you book your date as soon as you are sure I am a good fit for your event. I book a limited number of weddings so don’t put off calling for too long.

What should we bring to our first consultation?

You should bring anything that will give us an idea of your personal preferences and feel for your wedding. Some examples might be:

  •          Pictures of flowers and floral designs that inspire you. You can find floral pictures in magazines, on the internet, Pinterest or in books. If you come across pictures of flowers or floral designs that you do not like bring along those pictures as well. I also have an extensive portfolio of floral examples for us to reference in the consultation.
  •          Pictures of the bride’s dress, the attendants and men’s ensembles.
  •          Swatches of the colors you are working with to build your wedding’s color palette are very helpful. Fabric, paint swatches or pictures can all be used to illustrate the color themes of your wedding.
  •          Bring a list of people you will need to supply with corsages and boutonnieres.

 

What do you require to secure our date with you and book our wedding with The Flower Studio?

You will receive an estimate of flowers and services with a breakdown of costs for your review after our initial consultation. A deposit of $100.00 will secure your date and book your wedding with me. Final payment is due in full 3 weeks before your wedding.

What do you accept as payment?

At this time, I accept cash and personal checks. Credit cards may be used for the deposit payment via the phone. All subsequent credit card payments must be swiped in the studio in person. In an effort to keep our costs lower for you, we have chosen this policy.

Where is The Flower Studio located?

Our designing takes place in my studio located at 1025 Emerald Terrace Sun Prairie, WI. My focus and passion is primarily focused on weddings, events, corporate services and design instruction. We will deliver throughout Wisconsin and beyond.

What flower sources do you have access to?

I am committed to securing the freshest and highest quality flowers for your wedding or event. I will hand-select them from select local growers when available. We have several wholesale sources that provide floral products that meet our high standards.

Do you offer other décor items besides flowers?

Yes! I am happy to offer a wide variety of rental decor items for the exclusive use of The Flower Studio’s clients.  Including vases of all shapes and sizes, faux stone urns, trees, hanging jewels, hanging votive cups, vintage props… just to name a few. Several of our rentals are specially designed to the fit the décor of the venues we work at most often.

Does The Flower Studio deliver, set up my wedding and reception flowers?

Yes, we offer most any service you might need. Delivery, set up, pin-on service, transfer of floral to reception, strike and pick up of rental and the end of your party.

Will you coordinate delivery and/or pick up and return rentals from other vendors I am working with?

I work with your vendors to coordinate set up and return of items.  For example, I generally speak with your cake vendor to coordinate delivery and decoration of your cake.  I also speak with the vendor of your linen rentals to assure that all elements coordinate. If you desire, The Flower Studio can procure your rental items for you so everything is on one invoice.

Do you do weddings and events the entire year?

Yes, I am available year round. The months of June, July and August are the busiest for me. All dates are reserved on a first come, first booked basis. I encourage you to contact me at the earliest possible time to ensure my availability for your wedding.

What is your service area?

The Flower Studio travels up to 2 hours out of Sun Prairie/Madison area for normal event set-up.  All other venues or large installations, I do all design and preparation on site. Some examples of on site design prep and set up are North Woods, Door County, Milwaukee, Wisconsin Dells just to name a few.

What is the best way to connect with The Flower Studio to schedule a consultation?

Contact me at 608-837-9090. I will schedule your consultation conveniently and quickly!

I do not live in the area can I send you a retainer to hold my wedding date on your calendar and then meet with you closer to the big day to go over the details?

Absolutely!  I require a deposit to hold your date on the Flower Studio’s calendar (credited towards your balance). We can then solidify details and make decor choices when it is convenient for your schedule.

Have you worked at my venue before?

The Flower Studio is proud to not only have worked at most of the wedding venues in the Dane county area. But, if I have not worked at your venue before I am pleased to do a site visit. Please check the list of venues served.

I feel like I need help choosing flowers and designs.  Who should I bring with me to our consultation?   

Your fiancé, a friend, a family member or someone else that knows the style and look of your wedding can all be very helpful when making decisions and choosing flowers and designs. You may want to include the person that is paying for the flowers for the wedding in our meeting. That way they have an idea of what is involved in the decor and can ask any questions they may have at the consultation. I suggest that you limit the number of people you bring with you to our meeting to no more than two additional people.  Everyone has a vision and too many people can make decision making confusing.

Why should we have The Flower Studio design our wedding/event flowers?

I am passionate about floral design, and my work shows it! Every detail will get my complete attention. All supporting design staff is certified in floral design; all collectively committed to making your wedding day flowers more than you could have ever imagined possible.
