FAQ

WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?

HOW DO I BOOK A COMPLIMENTARY CONSULTATION? 

Consultation appointments can be booked by phone or email. Our only requirement is that we speak with you directly or that you fill out our online consultation form prior to scheduling so that we can get an idea of your needs to help us prepare and to make the best use of your time when you come in. 

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO A CONSULTATION?

Before you book your floral consultation you should have your dress, bridesmaid's dresses and colour palette chosen as well as your venue established. We will need this information to help you choose the best flower combinations for you, your attendants and your venue. Please bring photos of your floral inspiration and photos of your bridal gown. This will help us achieve an overall picture of what you are looking for in wedding flowers and style. 

HOW FAR IN ADVANCE SHOULD I ORDER MY WEDDING FLOWERS?

You should order your wedding flowers 7-12 months before your wedding, especially if flowers are a high priority item for you. We book a limited number of weddings & events per weekend so book early to ensure your date is available.


HOW CAN I SECURE MY WEDDING DATE?

We ask for a non refundable reservation retainer equal to 35% of the total floral order along with a signed contract. The remaining balance with damage deposit (if you are renting vases) is due four weeks prior to the wedding/event date. No dates are secured or held without a signed contract and the reservation retainer. We do not tentatively book wedding dates.

Minimum spends

We are known for our lush, English garden style designs which use premium blooms such as peonies, garden roses, ranunculus and more. To be able to create these types of designs, as well as provide the best client care and experience possible, our studio has a minimum wedding flower financial commitment of $3,000 before delivery/set up. Since we are a boutique studio, also working with a perishable product, we have limited time and space for wedding work each week. 

How long will the consultation last?

Most consultations can be finished in an hour. Smaller events will take less time and large events may last up to two hours.

I live out of town and am not able to meet in person until just before my wedding. Can I still work with you?

If you live out of state or are unable to meet in person for your consultation, we will be happy to speak with you over the phone.


What information is included in the proposal?

Our proposal will itemize all agreed upon floral elements and their individual prices, rental items and their prices, any miscellaneous items and their charges, delivery and pickup charges. There will be no hidden fees and no additional charges without written agreement from both parties.
We are happy to revise the proposal once prior to the deposit being paid. You should have a good feeling as to whether or not we are a good fit for you with the second iteration.
Once a deposit has been paid and the contract has been signed we are happy to provide as much detail about the proposal as you would like. Items can still be added as needed but we are not able to decrease quantities as commitments will have been made to our vendors to purchase the flowers for your wedding.


Do you offer packages for weddings?

Since every bride and event host is unique, we design custom proposals specifically for them as opposed to package options.

WHAT ARE YOUR DELIVERY, SET UP & TAKE DOWN FEES?

Our delivery and set-up fees are dependent on the amount of time and number of Vella Nest Floral design staff will be needed to nail your floral vision for your big day! Other considerations like travel time, room flips, etc can impact time. Teardown fees are additional and will also depend on time and location. Our delivery/set-up rate starts at $150/hour and late night teardown fees start at $200/hour..

CAN I PROVIDE MY OWN FLOWERS OR DIY FLORAL ARRANGEMENTS?

Our policy is that if you hire us as your wedding/event florist we will supply all the fresh floral bouquets and arrangements for your event using our reputable floral wholesalers and flower farms. This is to ensure a high quality product and consistency in design for all aspects of your event flowers. You will want all of your flowers looking their best for your big day! We do not provide bulk flowers for DIY wedding orders.

ARE THERE ANY FLOWERS THAT YOU DON'T RECOMMEND FOR WEDDINGS? 

A few. Due to very strong scents that are overpowering or just smell unpleasant we choose not to design with baby's breath/ gypsophila which can smell like dirty feet, limonium/misty blue which usually smells like fish or lilies as they can give guests and our staff headaches. We also don't use flowers with pollen (lilies, craspedia) or any artificially dyed flowers in our wedding designs as the pollen and dye can stain dresses, linens and other fabrics which would be terrible to deal with on your wedding day.

WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE WEDDING FLOWERS TO DESIGN WITH?

Our floral design is characterized by lush blooms with lots of texture in varying shapes and sizes. Some of our favorite wedding flowers are peonies, roses, garden roses, lisianthus, ranunculus, snowberries, thryptomene, scabiosa, astilbe, hellebores and so many more as there are literally hundreds of beautiful wedding blooms available! Not all of these flowers are available year round but we can suggest what is best for your wedding date.

How many events do you take on in a year?

How does the booking and planning process work?

Once we receive your inquiry we will arrange an initial phone consultation so can we chat about all aspects of your event.

If you decide to use our services, we will send you the contract to sign and secure your date. We require a 35% non-refundable fee at the time of booking, . Following this, we will provide you with a personalized mood board and a bespoke proposal with ideas, options, and suggestions. During the planning process, we will be gladly to meet with your wedding or event planner or coordinator so we can work together to create your perfect day.
