This may be your first time planning a wedding or your second. Maybe you’ve done some homework, maybe you know exactly what you want- maybe you don’t.
When putting together your team of vendors, how do you decide on a florist? What should you look for?
Consider Pretty Flowers for these reasons:
Communication. You should feel like you can talk openly and freely with your florist. Like any effective relationship, its success relies on trust. You should also feel heard. We answer all emails within 48 hours. If you have a busy work schedule and don’t have time to send emails or take a call, we’re happy to text, too.
Experience. We have 35 years’ combined experience designing flowers for weddings at most of the venues along the Maine coast. If we haven’t been to your wedding destination, we will plan a site visit to get a lay of the land and meet the on-site manager prior to designing your proposal.
Flowers. We source local flowers and greenery as much as possible. We’re proud to support the many hard working flower farmers in Maine. We also shop from the New England Flower Exchange in Chelsea, MA for more unusual flowers from all over the world. These resources enable us to create the artistic bouquets and arrangements that are unique to you and your wedding.
Creative Thinking. We love a challenge and we love design. Give us an opportunity to create something spectacular and dynamic for your wedding that leaves your guests with a lasting impression.
Design elements. What better way to enhance beautiful florals than with contrasting fabric, specialty vases, glassware and decorative elements? We‘re happy to offer these extra items, because we believe that beauty is in the details and we want your tables to look like a work of art.
Proposals. We’re visual people working in a visual industry, that’s why we feel it’s important to provide each couple with a detailed proposal with colors, flowers and inspirational photos that will walk them through their wedding from beginning to end.
Planning and Coordination. Do you need someone to help manage vendors, organize rental delivery dates or handle logistical tasks? We’re happy to provide this additional service so you and your guests can relax.
Vendor Relations. There are many amazing vendors in our great state of Maine and we’ve worked with a lot of them. A successful wedding happens when everyone’s efforts come together seamlessly. That’s why we like to reach out to vendors before your event to communicate and discuss how our services might overlap. And, if there any gaps in service, we will address them too.
