How far in advance should I contact Sunnyslope to order my wedding flowers?
Flowers are one of the most important aspects of your wedding day! They set the mood and tone for the event and will be remembered for years to come. A good rule of thumb is to contact us at least three months in advance. However, if your wedding is going to be exceptionally elaborate, will take place during peak wedding season or fall on a holiday, then six months to a year is not too soon to contact us. This will allow us to reserve any speciality items you might need and - most importantly - to reserve the date!
Can you work within my budget?
Yes. By taking your budget into consideration from the very beginning of the planning process, we can give you the best advice on how to utilize the flowers for maximum effect and can suggest the types of flowers that will be the best value in order to achieve your desired look.
What should I bring when I have my wedding consultation?
The more information you can provide, the more creative suggestions we can offer. Anything you can bring will be beneficial. Pictures that depict the theme that you have in mind are helpful.
