How much should we spend on our wedding flowers?
Each couple has a different vision and will spend depending on their requirements.
One couple may have dreams of a lush hanging installation, while others may only require personal blooms and some cocktail vases. The amount you spend on your flowers really does depend on your vision, the complexity of the style, seasonal availability, location of venues and items required.
On average, our clients spend between $3,500 - $6,500 on their wedding flowers.
Looking for some budget examples? We have put together a few suggestions for what your budget could get you here.
Do you have a minimum spend?
We do have a minimum spend of $2,500 for all Friday, Saturday & Sunday weddings.
This is in place to ensure that we can provide our signature floral style and service experience to your on your wedding day. It also ensures we have beautiful high quality product to create with and enough talented staff to make your flower dreams come true.
Outside of these times, we do not have a minimum spend.
Do you have items available for hire?
We sure do!
We have a range of items available for hire including arbours, plinth stands, jute rugs, hurricane candles, boutique vases and lanterns.
If you are looking for a stylist or another item that you are looking for in particular, just let us know and we can always look into sourcing it for you or put you in contact with some of our preferred stylist vendors.
Please let us know at the time of quotation should you like to included any of these items.
We are hoping to have these catalogued very soon and added visually to our website. So watch this space!
Can we make changes after we pay our deposit?
After you have secured your date with a deposit, you can absolutely make changes to your quoted items. You can do this up until 6 weeks before your wedding date.
You may find that you have forgotten small items on the week of your wedding (ie. a buttonhole for a family member, or bud vases in the bathroom), and that’s ok - we can easily adjust your invoice.
How far in advance should I book?
We recommend getting in touch as soon as you have booked your date with your venue.
For September - March dates, we often receive bookings between 12- 18 months out from the wedding with Saturday & Fridays being the most popular.
We do not hold dates until a $250 date hold deposit is paid. If you love our work we suggest booking your date and we can finalise the design details later if need be.
Why do you charge a Servicing Fee?
When you book The Bloom Folk you are not paying for 'just flowers'.
You're also paying for all the behind the scenes.
That includes 3am market trips, relationships with growers for premium products, studio space, Insurance, tools, staff, site inspections, days of conditioning and prepping product, delivery, travel, consulting, admin & researching and expertise.
We spend between 20 -30 hours behind the scenes working on a wedding before we even step foot on the venue.
Labour and staffing requirements will be calculated based on the unique elements of your proposal. Ensuring we have enough hands on deck to bring your floral vision to life is an essential requirement for our business.
Our standard rate is $45 per hour per staff member with a minimum of 10 hours.
Calculation example: Bloom cost $2,500 + Travel, Delivery Set Up $290 + Standard Bump Out $300 + Labour $450 = $3,540 + GST 10% GST will be added to all quotes |
Servicing fees are non-negotiable.
