This page is intended to answer some frequently asked questions.
When Should I Start Planning for Flowers?
If you’re getting married on a holiday or a popular date such as 09-10-11, then 6 months would be a good time to get started. However, if you looking for a seasonal wedding, then you might like to check out a florist a year ahead to see what’s available. Especially if you want to actually see the flowers, not just pictures.
If you are a planner-ahead-er, then please call us once you’ve selected your dress colors.
Here are some of the many rose varieties available for your wedding
What areas do you deliver to?
Just about anywhere, but most commonly to Albany, Scotia, Saratoga and Troy, North to Lake George and South to Schodack.
We arrive at your house a half hour before the photographer, and to the ceremony at least an hour before it begins. We set up the table arrangements in coordination with the caterer.
What is your Delivery Charge?
This depends upon how many stops we need to make and how much we have to do on site. For instance, if we are doing 3 stops in the Capital District, The House, The Church and The Reception, then we might charge up to $100.
If we need to only go to one spot and it’s local, maybe $25.
If we need to go to Lake George and spend 3 hours setting up an Outdoor ceremony and reception, then we might charge $200
However, if you’re spending a fair amount on the flowers themselves, then we might discount our delivery and set up fee.
How much is an average wedding?
Every wedding that we do is customized to your needs and budget. We do not have any package deals, as we don't meet too many brides that have package tastes. We are an established and reliable florist that offers excellent quality at a fair price.
That being said, here are some prices for some traditional bouquets.
