Here are some of the most frequently asked questions brides-to-be ask me. If you have a question that you cannot find here, feel free to contact me. Alternatively, I would also like to refer you to my terms and conditions.
What can I expect to pay for my bouquets?
The price for a bridal bouquet is generally between $110.00 and $160.00; a bridesmaid bouquet may cost you between $75.00 and $95.00. Of course, this all depends on the size of your bouquet and the flowers you want to use. For example, cascade bouquets will be more expensive and simple, rustic bouquets may be cheaper. Feel free to contact me for an exact quote.
I saw a photo of a bouquet I like. Can you make the exact same thing?
Many brides-to-be send me photos they found on the internet and although I can make a similar bouquet, it will never be an exact copy. Not all flowers may be available in artificial material, or they may look different than the ones in the photo. Besides, a wedding bouquet is a piece of art and each bouquet represent creativity and uniqueness in its own way. I recommend being open to what you’ll receive and not to focus too much on the one example. For peace of mind, I do send out photos of your bouquets, so you will have the final say and no surprise on your wedding day.
Do you make sample bouquets?
No. If you like, I can send you single flowers you would like to use in your bouquet that you purchase as such. This way, you can check their quality. If you would prefer to see your entire bouquet finished, you’ll have to pay the full price.
Can I visit you to have a look at the flowers?
Unfortunately, Silk Petal is an online shop only. I do not have a shop, so it is not possible for you to check out my stock. If you like to see the quality of the flowers, you can contact me to purchase some samples. Alternatively, you can also keep an eye out for the next expo I’ll be attending to have a look at some of my creations.
Do you offer wedding packages?
No, most of my orders are all custom-made. Some brides will order one of the bridal bouquets shown on the website which are made-to-order as well. I also do not offer special discounts for larger orders. However, I do have regular specials that come up. If you would like to be kept in the loop of these specials, I recommend following my Facebook page.
How much time in advance do I book my flowers?
I highly recommend booking in as soon as you decide to order your bouquets with Silk Petal. I run this business by myself and will only except a limited amount of bookings. The absolute latest booking time I suggest is three months before your wedding date. If due to circumstances you need flowers urgently, feel free to contact me and I’ll see what I can do.
Do I need to pay a deposit to confirm my booking?
Yes, a 50% deposit is required with final payment due just before completion of your order.
