Simply put, I’m obsessed with weddings.
When I was 5, I would throw a baby blanket over my head, top it with a headband, and rock my makeshift veil as an everyday accessory. As an adult, I’ve spent the better part of my twenties involved in the industry in some way. I’ve worked as a bridal consultant in an intimate boutique, helping giddy brides fall in love with “the dress,” as well as creating floral visions from scratch for a floral event business. All of this to say, you’ll find no greater partner in the journey to adorn your big day in flowers than me! I’ve experienced first hand the joy flowers can bring, and feel passionate about helping find the perfect mix for you. Put your trust in me, and in FiftyFlowers for your event and you won’t be disappointed. We’ve helped thousands of DIYers create their vision!
So what is a flower consultation and why do you need one?
Floral consultations are geared towards couples planning on getting married, but are also incredibly helpful for any big party or event you plan on hosting! I’ve consulted people planning bridal showers, holiday parties, corporate events, and everything in between. If you need a variety of flowers and you’re not sure where to start, the consultation is for you. Planning your own flowers can be overwhelming, right? FiftyFlowers offers such a large variety of products that I often find something I have never seen before! But, rest assured that FiftyFlowers is the innovator of delivering fresh flowers to your doorstep directly from the farm. We hand select the farms we source our flowers from and have established long-lasting relationships that ensure we deliver the best quality flowers just for you!
So you’ve booked your consultation – now what?
A floral consultation at Fiftyflowers starts with a connection. Once you schedule, I will reach out to you with a questionnaire to get to know you and learn more about your event. Expect questions like:
- What are your event colors?
- What are some flowers you love?
- What are some adjectives describing the vibe of your event?
- Why have you chosen to DIY your flowers?
The questionnaire allows me to search our site and create a list of items I think fit well, not only together, but with your full vision. Next, we get to talk it all out! I will give you a call at your scheduled time. Make sure you have access to the internet and the FiftyFlowers website. This adds a visual element to the consultation call and helps connect product names with pictures. We have 45 minutes dedicated to discussing all the details about your flowers and event. The goal by the end of the conversation is to create a mock-up cart filled with your chosen items in their appropriate amounts. From there, I will then create a recipe worksheet for you to use as a guide when building your arrangements to make the DIY process as straight-forward as possible.
As your consultant, I am here to make the process of choosing your flowers for your special event easy.
After your consultation, I will send you an email full of helpful information including recommended tools, flower transportation tips, and suggestions for what to do with extra flowers, along with your cart and recipe. From there I am at your disposal for any questions you may have. Need to adjust amounts? Need to pare down your list to spend less? Shift gears completely? We can conquer it. And it’s not only me. Did you know our customer care team is award-winning? Insightful, experienced, and empathetic representatives are always here to help take care of you and your order from beginning to end. Let’s make your DIY wedding flowers as beautiful as they can be – together! Remember, here at FiftyFlowers: it’s your dream, made easy, no compromises.
