How we work

Initial Quotation

We operate quite differently to traditional retail florists because at Brides In Bloom all we do is weddings, so the focus is entirely on you!!

To help you through the process of choosing the best possible flowers and treating your guests to a delicious, contemporary wedding cake we recommend you fill out the 'fast quote' which you will find a link for in the top right hand corner of every page on this site. The information you provide in your enquiry form allows Bridesinbloom to provide an indicative quote which is emailed to you within a day or so of receiving. Include as much information as you can about your required flowers, colours, varieties, bouquet styles and sizes so that we may calculate an approximate price for your flowers and cake. If you decide that Brides In Bloom "fit" your requirements then we recommend you give us a call to discuss appointment and ordering options.

Refining Your Order

There are two ways to approach ordering your flowers and wedding cake – you can either come in for a full consultation or place the order over the phone/email and qualify for an added discount. If you’re not sure what you want and are after design ideas and a colour consultation then a full consultation would be the best option. If you have a fairly clear idea of what you’re after based on all the great images and ideas presented on our web site and want to simply place the order over the phone or via email correspondence then we reward you with a discount based on the administrative time saved.

studio appointment /consultations

During the consultation we refine your initial quotation and provide a written quotation based around your ideas and styles/flowers chosen. We recommend you come to the appointment with a sample of the fabric in your gowns – especially bridesmaid’s fabric. It’s especially helpful if you prepare by looking through bridal books and have some basic ideas and concepts; this will allow plenty of time to talk about your specific needs. The initial colour and design appointment is very thorough and additional appointments are generally not required.

phone/email ordering – discount
Many of our brides have found that our web site is so useful in terms of providing examples of Brides In Bloom designs that they place the order without coming into the studio for a full consultation. As a dedicated wedding floral and cake designer, our comprehensive website combined with online indicative quoting should assist you in assessing our business to the point of placing your order with us and refining details over the phone or via email correspondence. A considerable amount of consulting and administrative time is saved by working with us this way and the savings are passed onto you as a discount. Discounts are based on administrative time saved.

Booking Deposit and Payments

If you want the security of booking your date up to 18 months prior to your wedding to be sure we are available, many of our brides pay a deposit up to a year in advance then come in closer to the date. A minimum deposit of $300 is payable to secure your wedding date, On receiving your deposit, Brides In Bloom provide a detailed breakdown of your wedding order. We recommend you thoroughly read through your order and contact us if any changes need to be made. Prices quoted are subject to seasonal price variation and in the event of a cancellation a 12-month credit note will be issued. Additional delivery and set up costs may be applicable for order reductions or changes to order after quotation date, please see our Terms and Conditions. Delivery times will be confirmed 10 days prior to your wedding during the telephone confirmation.
