Pricing and minimums:
When figuring out a budget for your wedding, you will want to allow a minimum of 10-15% of the total budget for flowers. Some couples spend a lot more on flowers , while others may spend less. Pricing will also depend on how large of a bridal party you have, the types of flowers being chosen, and the overall design of the event. For instance, if you have a $40,000 budget( which is an average starting range for most events in Kennebunkport area) you will have to plan a minimum budget of $4,000-$6,000 for flowers.
With an average sized bridal party of 4-6 attendants on each side, bridal bouquet, grooms boutonniere and family boutonnieres and corsages, a minimum of $1,000- will come out of your budget. This will leave you $3,000-$5,000 in your remaining budget to cover ceremony flowers, seating card table or bar, 15-18 centerpieces, taxes, delivery and set up. Higher end flowers, like david Austin Garden roses, peonies, more delicate blooms, and out of season flowers will increase the prices significantly.
Corporate, Party and Event pricing:
The minimum for events and parties is based on the size of event and our availability. We work closely with facilities and restaurants in the area to accommodate their corporate related and small party needs.
How to get an estimate:
A consultation in person, or over the phone is required in order to give an accurate estimate. These meetings can last from 45 minutes to 2 hours depending on your needs. A starting budget is required before booking a consultation. This gives us a jumping off point to help design an event that will achieve your look, by suggesting flowers that will fit within your budget.
I like to have an initial phone conversation before we book the appointment. This 10-20 minute conversation will give me a snapshot of what you may be looking for so that we can have a more productive meeting.
How to book an appointment:
