How many flowers should I order?
Answer: There are so many variables it's a hard question to easily answer. All these factors come into play when determining the quantity of flowers you'll need:
How big are your vases (height and diameter of the opening)?
What shape are the vases?
Are you greening up the vases?
What flowers are you planning on using?
But the best answer to this question is a question: "Have you created a sample or two?"
By doing a trial run, you gain a better understanding of the amount of flowers and greens it's going to take for one of your arrangements. Armed with some actual numbers from making your sample(s) you can now easily calculate the number of each flower needed for your event. On the website each flower will have an expected stem/bloom count so simple division should yield the number of bunches needed.
When should I get my flowers?
That question is best answered by looking at what flowers you'll be ordering.
Most flowers are shipped from the grower 'tight' - they travel better when they're in bud rather than in full bloom and they last longer. The flowers we sell are florist grade flowers and vase life is a primary concern. For weddings and events your flowers need to be open and showy so you'll want to get them in plenty of time to process, hydrate and coax them into bloom.
Some flowers, notably lilies, gladiolus and ranunculus can take 3 to 5 days to open where some colors of roses will start to bloom almost immediately after getting in water.
As a general practice, you should plan on getting your flowers the Wednesday or Thursday before a Saturday event. That will give you adequate time to process, hydrate and get you flowers ready to design with them.
We will always review your order and advise you if we think your should get your flowers earlier or later than you specified
