We are solely a wedding and special event florist, which means we focus wholeheartedly on you on your special day. We care about your event and treat each and every one that we do as if it is our own. From the very first minute of your initial consultation, you will have a personalized experience that is tailored specifically to meet your personal needs and expectations. Our priority is to ensure that your event is everything you want it to be and more. Our professional staff is made up of experienced owners and designers who are capable of handling any last minute adjustments allowing you to enjoy your day while we handle the rest.
Do I need to schedule a meeting to talk to a floral designer about my wedding?
Yes, we kindly request that you call to schedule a complimentary consultation with owner and designer, Danielle Farrer. We offer day and evening appointments during the week and some weekends during the slower season. We do not schedule appointments during busy wedding weekends as we want to dedicate those days to our wonderful couples on their special day. Although a face to face meeting is always preferred, we do offer phone consultations as well.
What is the consultation process like?
Our initial consultation will last for about an hour. Please try to be on time as our consultations are oftentimes booked back to back. Be sure to only bring along guests to support and share in your overall vision for your big day! In addition, you are encouraged to bring any pictures, Pinterest boards, color swatches, etc. that represent your style and wedding plans thus far. Danielle will show a slideshow featuring several examples of her previous work to further inspire your floral selections.
Can you email me pricing or a quote via email?
Unfortunately, we do not offer quotes via email for potential clients. At Flowers By Danielle LLC., we believe the relationship built between a couple and their floral designer is a special one. By scheduling a complimentary consultation with Danielle, she will be able to get an insight for your vision, get to know your personal style and discuss options. You will then receive your quote at the end of that meeting. Out of state clients are eligible for a phone consultation.
Do you require a deposit to reserve my wedding date?
Yes, our typical deposit is $500.00, however it may be more or less depending on the price of your total package. Our services are provided on a first-come, first-serve basis so clients are encouraged to place their deposit as early as possible.
Do you offer a floral package?
No, we do not offer any floral packages because all of our designs are one-of-a-kind and are created to fit the special needs and desires of each individual client. Types of flowers, other materials used and the finished size of the arrangement are all factors that contribute to the varying prices of a design. We aim to work within the client's budget while still fulfilling their dreams for their special event.
What happens if my floral choices are out of range with my desired budget?
Our main goal is to fulfill your dreams on your special day. We suggest you discuss your budget concerns with us so we can offer suggestions that will reduce the cost but still keep the most beautiful arrangements possible.
What type of flowers will be available at the time of my wedding?
If you schedule a consultation, Danielle will be able to provide further insight to what specific flowers will be available at the time of your wedding. If you're interested in researching this information prior to your meeting, you can check out these sites for seasonal lists:
Do you do anything other than flowers?
In addition to floral design, we also provide linens, votives, vases, arches, chuppahs, candelabras, manzanita trees, glass and wooden containers and other decor. Over the years, we have teamed up with others in the event industry who can fulfill whatever other needs you may have.
May I provide my own vases and other items for you to set up?
Yes, we are happy to utilize your materials and set them up the day of your special event for a fee agreed upon by both parties which will be outlined in your wedding contract. Please deliver clean and table-ready items to us and be sure all stickers are removed from glassware and all other containers. We kindly request that you provide us with one extra in the unlikely event that something gets damaged in transit. Flowers by Danielle LLC. will not be held responsible for any breakage.
Do you charge a delivery fee?
Yes, fees are determined based on the size of your event package and the destination in which the arrangements will be delivered and set up. We deliver throughout all of CT and some parts of NY, MA and RI. Our goal is to deliver personal flowers prior to the photographer's arrival. The delivery schedule will be confirmed the week of your wedding, as we may not be able to plan for changes at the venue or ceremony location. Pick up of rentals will be done by FBD unless otherwise stated in your contract.
When will my final balance be due?
All special event orders must be paid in full no later than three weeks before the event. Unlike other vendors, this is when we will be placing the order for your flowers. In order to do so, the final payment must be received.
Does Flowers by Danielle LLC. carry liability insurance?
Yes, we hold liability insurance which covers any unlikely occurrences or damages that take place with the use of our products.
