Please don't hesitate to Reach Out if you have a Question that is not answered on this page. We would Love to hear from you!
WHEN DO I NEED TO START THINKING ABOUT FLORALS FOR MY EVENT?
For weddings we recommend starting the process with us 8+ months in advance and 4+ months in advance for all other events. To give our clients our very best service we only book a limited number of events every year.
WHAT DOES YOUR PROCESS INVOLVE?
Our goal is to make working with us easy and fun! In a nutshell, we offer an initial consultation followed by a series of Floral Fittings, which allows us to really understand your vision and style. We customize our process to fit your schedule. You can visit our PROCESS page to read more about what you can expect along the way.
The Interaction we have with our Clients is so Important to us, that we have coined our process, "The Y Experience."
