Can you Give Me a Quote?

Can you give me a quote?

This is my most asked question.

And no, I can’t just give you a quote.  I can give you a price tag to an image, yes.  But translating that into seasonally available flowers in the current market takes time.  Especially when some of those flowers aren’t even available in the GTA.  I usually can’t do that by email.  It requires an in depth phone call or an in person meeting.  We have a lot of things to talk to including flowers, style, design, size, colour, containers, accents, ribbons, etc.  Most couples don’t actually want to know “how much does this cost?” an have a replication of an image (and I don’t like to design that way).  They are used as inspiration, a starting point.  And those are all elements we need to discuss.

It’s been a while since I’ve blogged about pricing… So even though I would love to just quickly give you some numbers…. If  you want a quote – we need to have a bunch of emails and an actual conversation – with our voices.  If you are on a budget, I totally understand, but be honest with me instead of just hearing my prices and then go to someone else.  If you are on a tighter budget,  be upfront with me about your REALISTIC floral numbers, I can help make suggestions to create something you like that isn’t going to break the bank.

These are the prices my brides typically spent.  They are not written in stone, but my averages based on the images I have posted on my website. This doesn’t mean I can’t create something for less, it doesn’t mean there aren’t other options for us to create beautiful flowers on a budget – but this is how much flowers TYPICALLY cost.  I am not expensive – flowers are.
