Did you know that other than the Bride, your flowers will be one of the most photographed things on your wedding day?
From Buttonholes to bouquets all the way through to your venue flowers, our team make it their mission to help create your dream day. Flowers can play such an important part in your wedding day and can create such a wide array of themes. From a pretty, woodland feel right through to a bold, vibrant and dramatic affair wedding flowers set the tone for the whole event.
Alongside our creativity and design skills we also understand that planning a wedding (not to mention choosing your wedding florist)! Can be such a difficult and daunting task. We take our time to lead you through the necessary steps and give you good, honest advice. Designing Wedding flowers is one of our absolute passions, each wedding is given our upmost attention to detail, each piece designed and created with complete care.
We were so pleased to be named as Wedding finalist of year 2017 at the wedding industry awards. It was something that made us so proud as it not only reflects our design and creative skills but also our one to one, personal touch that we offer to all of our couples.
How do we do it?
First things first, get in touch. You can contact us at the shop on 0121 502 3316 or pop us an email on firstname.lastname@example.org. It’s from this initial contact that we can check our availability for your date. If your Wedding date is free we will then invite you to a consultation. We try to be as flexible as possible for you when booking your appointment. We offer Saturday, week day and evening slots to try and accommodate your needs. If you are a couple outside of the Black Country area, we can try and arrange a home visit. Please be aware that our consultation spaces get taken very quickly so in some instances we may not be able to book your appointment for the same week.
The Fun Part! – Whilst booking your consultation we will ask you to bring along and inspiration you may have. This can be photographs, Pinterest boards, magazine cuttings anything that you have which you have seen. This way we get to see your vision, take a peak in your head so to speak. It will be over this inspiration that we will discuss your requirements (How many bridesmaids, Buttonholes etc) and then we will move to choosing your colours, your favourite flowers, any theme you love. All of this info helps us build a huge picture of your perfect Wedding day.
When designing and pricing Wedding flowers we are very aware that each couple are individual, each couple have their own likes and dislikes and its during your Wedding consultation that all of this is noted down.
Each consultation is booked for an hour. We absolutely love a one to one with a Bride (or Groom), but we also adore a laughter filled Bride Squad who are brilliant for bouncing ideas off!
Once your consultation is over, we take away all of the ideas we have agreed upon and spoken about and we then get designing for you.
Each quotation can be expected to be emailed back to you within 7 days and all of our quotations contain a nice simple breakdown and include a moodboard so you get to see the flowers we will be using and any inspiration we have used whilst designing your wedding flowers.
We are Officially yours!
If you love our ideas, you love the moodboard, we have found your perfect wedding budget and wish to proceed its easy.
A £50 non-refundable booking fee will secure your date (This gets deducted from your final balance so not to worry) and voila we are officially yours – Welcome to The Hive!
Around 6 weeks before your wedding we may ask you to pop back into the shop, just for a catch up and to make sure that we have everything correct and there have been no changes and we will be good to go. We ask that your full balance is paid 30 days before your wedding day and follow up your final balance with a final countdown email. Your email will ask you to clarify any delivery instructions, who will be where and when etc.
The Big Day
It’s finally here! All of the months, weeks, days of planning have led to this!
Our day begins bright and early, up before the birds and ready to go. Our first port of call will be delivery of the Bridal party flowers and then we will move onto your venue. We aim to have your bridal flowers with you at least 2 hours prior to your ceremony so you have opportunity for photographs etc.
At your venue our team will set up any glassware you have hired as well as your flowers. Please note that some larger set ups can be quite extensive so we may need a little help in negotiating extra set up time at some venues.
Once all of your venue has been dressed, we give it a once over and final tweak and leave you guys to party. We pop back the next day to collect our glassware and any other hired items – Unless otherwise arranged.
We have designed Weddings throughout the Midlands and beyond! As you can see our team help to deliver it all from beginning to end. We aim to make our part something to enjoy – something that you will still smile about on your silver wedding anniversary!
