Preparation: 
Know your floral budget. Only you know what you feel comfortable spending, and we, at Fresh Attitudes specialize in providing outstanding flowers within any budget. A good “rule of thumb” for deciding on a budget is to figure about ten to fifteen percent of your total wedding expenditures. Because each and every wedding is different, it is impossible to provide a “ballpark” estimate. However, the ten to fifteen percent rule is a good place to start. Some cost estimates are provided in this package and should be helpful to you.

Initial Visit: 
A non-refundable deposit of $300 is required to hold the date for you. This will secure your date and still allow for many of the decisions that may be made after the consultation. This deposit is deducted from the final balance due on your order. A copy of the order will be provided to you upon receipt of the deposit. Orders without deposit will be held for 10 days only. The remaining balance is due no later than thirty (30) days prior to your event. 

We only except check or cash.

We encourage you to bring with you any and all ideas you may have such as magazine photos, pictures from other weddings, etc.  We will need to see a picture of your gown and the bridesmaids gowns and if possible a swatch of their material. Below is a checklist that you need to think about for your wedding flowers. We will work with you to enhance your ideas to make your day beautiful and unique.
