INFORMATION ABOUT OUR WEDDING SERVICES

YAY! YOU ARE ENGAGED.

How exciting to be planning your WEDDING, a CELEBRATION of a new life together as a married couple!

We want to add to your excitement and help you create your perfect WEDDING DAY, full of love, laughter and beautiful flowers.  Sweet Blossom Designs is an established (since 1992) and experienced Floral and Event Design Company. Based in Orange County and San Diego and serving all of Southern California, SBD is a passionate and creative team of Floral Designers, Stylists and Event Directors that are ready to provide you with the best in Floral and Event Design focused on your own style and inspiration. Here are some details about our process in designing flowers for your Wedding.

{Let’s Meet}

We want to meet you! Email us at hello@sweetblossomdesigns.com to set up a consultation time. We are available by appointment most weekdays and evenings and some weekends depending on our Event Schedule!  We regularly meet in our office (Orange County and San Diego), but we can also do Initial Meetings on the phone, Skype, over email or we will meet you somewhere in between.

{First Impressions}

We are always excited to meet each new couple and hear about their vision for their Wedding Day.  At our first meeting we are usually the ones with all the experience, so we will go over every design detail of your Wedding Day with you, and make sure you have everything that you are dreaming of to create the perfect Wedding Day.  We look at colors, designs, flowers, accessories and all that you would like to use to make your day picture perfect! Our first meeting can be anywhere from an hour to two hours, so come prepared with your thoughts, ideas and inspirations.  If you are in our office, make sure to check out the all the extras we offer.

{It’s Personal}

EVERY Wedding we design is unique to each couple, even if we have been to the venue before or made a similar style arrangement. It is now your turn to celebrate, with your own style and your own dreams.  We love to see pictures of your dresses, your invites, your linens and anything that brings your unique style to your Wedding Day!

{Let’s Make it Official}

Once we have talked and have gone over all the details, we will take all that information and create a budget proposal for you.  A simple, no frills one can be done while you wait or a detailed one emailed to you within a week. This is only a starting point and can be adjusted as we work through the design process.  We work closely with you to stay within your budget, while having the flowers you envision at your Wedding. We require a $300 retainer to save the day for you. We provide you with a detailed contract and are fully insured. After you have the proposal in your hands we will hold the date for 72 hours and then contact you again to see if there are any questions we can answer to help take the next step.

{Step by Step}

Once you have decided to hire Sweet Blossom Designs be a part of your Wedding Day, we will get busy working on the floral designs for your Wedding day.  We will meet with you at your venue to do a walk through and make sure we have covered every space with your design and budget in mind. We can share Pinterest Boards to exchange ideas, if you don’t have one, we can help you create one or we can email and text pictures of ideas we come across.  We also offer a mock up table design if needed to further your vision for the day. We will provide you with as much or as little guidance as needed to help you at any stage of the process and you can rely on our expert knowledge, experience and creativity. 15 to 20 days before your Wedding Day, we will chat again to go over all the final counts, layout and timeline. This is also when the flower order will be placed, so final payment will be due at this time too.  Any time after the 15 days, we can add to our final counts, but not subtract, however we will use EVERY flower we purchase for you at your Wedding, so there might be a few extra special touches on your Wedding Day.

{Let’s Celebrate}

It is now the day before your Wedding!! Can you believe how fast time has gone? You have worked so hard for this day and we are so excited for you!  We have just picked up the freshest flowers from our grower/vendor and are working hard on your floral designs. We create everything as close as possible to your Wedding Day.  All personal flowers are designed within 12 to 18 hours of your Wedding. On your Wedding Day we will deliver your personal flowers to where you need them to be and then head over to design your ceremony space and then your reception space.  We will move anything that needs to be transported between the ceremony and reception to ensure that they get there safely, timely and make any touch ups that are needed. We will come back at an agreed upon time to pick up any of our items and to help distribute  the flowers to your guests and family. Some of our Weddings require a more elaborate set up and break down; we will arrange for this with you, your venue and coordinator if extra time is required.

{Congratulations}

We are so excited for you as you begin your new life as a married couple! Best Wishes and Many Blessings!!

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What kind of packages do you offer?

Some florists do offer packages; we think your day is unique to you and should be designed and priced that way. We work with straightforward pricing and since we are not your average floral shop, we can be cost effective with the freshest and most beautiful flowers. We will give you a detailed proposal and there is never any pressure for you to decide on each item right then and there. We can adjust your budget as needed, as we go along, letting you know how that works with your proposed design.

We work with ALL budgets while not compromising our quality, style or service.  Simply put we design gorgeous floral designs at prices everyone can afford.

Have you worked at my venue before?

After 25 years of doing what we love the answer is probably yes, if you are getting married in Southern California, but if not, we are up for the challenge! We LOVE working at new venues and with new vendors. We love getting to be at our creative best in a new space. Often after an event, venue staff tells us that they had never seen a wedding done like that before, we love that!


Where do you get your flowers and supplies?

Most of the time we purchase our flowers directly at the Floral Trade Center in Carlsbad, you benefit from our long established relationships with most of the Vendors and Growers down there. We will also head up to the Los Angeles Flower District for some specialty items and will use a few local Vendors and Shops if the need arises.


Is there a Delivery and Set Up/Strike Fee?

Yes! We employ an amazing and hard working design team on the day of your wedding; they are fully dedicated to making sure you, your family and guests enjoy a day full of love, laughter and beauty! This fee allows us to make sure that your Wedding Day is taken care of and no detail is missed.  Average Fee is $300, but is based on the size of your event, details of your event, truck rental, staff needed, distance involved and start and strike times.


Where are you located? We are based in Mission Viejo CA and serve all of Southern California (Santa Barbara to San Diego). We are also available for travel if needed. We know how to turn a Hotel Room into a Floral Studio overnight and discover local finds unique to your Wedding Day!


What else do you offer?

We offer a lot more! With all of our experience, and all that we have collected over the years and the contacts we have made, we have the ability and desire to offer a full service amazing Wedding Day experience.  Ask for our Event Design and Coordination Package and also The Sweet Extras we offer.
