Are we (the bride) allowed to provide our own vases for centerpieces?
~Generally, we only use vases that we source here at Emlily and sometimes vases from a reputable rental company. We do not use vases for centerpieces supplied by the bride. We have an extensive line of rental vases to help keep costs down and vases also available to purchase for guests to take home. We are happy to adorn flowers with specialty props that you may have or have rented from a rental company.
Do You Provide In Person Consultations?
~Clients may receive 1 complementary consultation at our home based studio not to exceed 1 hour. Additional consultations or site visits will be charged at the normal hourly rate.
Do you provide sample arrangements and site visits?
~Sample arrangements can be arranged upon request and will be charged at the same price as the arrangement listed in your quote. Site visits are available depending on our availability and will be charged by an hourly rate plus a standard travel fee.
What is your service area?
~ We focus on Santa Barbara and Ventura Counties but have traveled to Los Angeles and Fresno for weddings as well! (would love to do a destination wedding elsewhere if we have any takers! )
Do you offer rentals?
~ Yes! We offer a wide variety of rental vases, urns, candle votives, two arches, and a chuppah rental. Please inquire for our latest rental inventory. A strike/pick-up fee may be applied; this fee may be waived if the client returns the rentals to our studio.
Does Your Delivery Fee Include Set Up at the Venue?
Yes! Our delivery fee includes any specialty set up needed for any given arrangement at the designated delivery time only if tables or other rentals are set up at the time of delivery. Otherwise, we will find a place to put the arrangements so that a coordinator can place them on tables when they are ready.
Have you worked at my Venue before?
~ Emlily Floral Designs has provided flowers for many of the venues in Santa Barbara and Ventura County areas but we know there are countless venues to choose from in this area as it is the #1 place to get married in the USA! If we have not worked at your venue we are happy to do site visit for a minimal fee.
How far in advance should I book Emlily Floral Designs?
~The sooner, the better. We recommend booking 6-12 months in advance for our peak wedding season (April-October). Even so, please don’t hesitate to contact us if it is 1-6 months prior to your wedding! We were able to bring to life this brides floral vision in less than two weeks notice!
