As we head into the 2022 season, we’ve decided to establish a minimum budget for full wedding design, which starts at $6,500, and here is why.
Over the course of the last 4 years, we’ve learned, we’ve grown and expanded our skills. In this time, establishing pricing for our studio that allows us to create impactful, cohesive and timeless designs, run our business as a business, and continue our education, has been of upmost importance. We’ve worked with an array of budgets and found that this minimum really allows us to collaborate with our clients and create a design that is timeless with the BEST blooms, plenty of hands to execute the vision, and feeling like we are getting paid to do the work we’ve been hired to do.
It is not uncommon for boutique floral studio’s to have these minimums in place to ensure they are creating and executing full wedding designs to the best of their abilities. When working with us, you are getting so much more than just the flowers. You’re getting an experience of collaboration, professionalism, design eyes and skills that really allow us to be on your side for your day, ensuring that when it arrives, everything is perfect. You’re also allowing us to pick the BEST flowers, shipping them from wholesalers, and flower farmers from all over. We aren’t giving you generic, grocery store flowers, because we aren’t the grocery store florist. We curate flower recipes based on our design we’ve developed and every wedding we create NEW floral recipes. (My favorite part).
Weddings take more than just the person you hired, they take a VILLAGE, a TEAM of experienced and learning designers to execute the vision the week and day of. Having this minimum allows us to hire a team for your day.
Lastly, we need to run our business as a business and ensure we are profiting and paying ourselves for the months of love and hard work we put into every design. It goes beyond the day of the wedding and we work with our couples up to a year in advance.
We hope this gives a little bit more insight into why we have a set minimum for our full wedding design clients. We want to work with the couples that see florals as a vital part of their wedding and this minimum does just that.
