Wedding and Events
Your wedding or special event is a reflection of you and nothing can demonstrate your sense of beauty, elegance and style better then your floral designs. It is our goal to combine your personality and style whether it is simple and understated, dramatic and energized or playful and whimsical with our knowledge and sense of aesthetics, so that the flowers at your special event are as unique as you.
Services OfferedFlora offers artful floral designs for your wedding or special event/party throughout Champaign County and Central Illinois. We offer delivery, set-up and breakdown services for all of our events. This is a fee-based service priced per event. We carry many rental items including linens, glassware, unique containers, votives, permanent planters, topiaries, trees, hydrangea frames and moss covered spheres.
The Consultation Flora holds consultations on Tuesday and Wednesday's from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Our wedding & corporate consultations are free; however, we do charge a non-refundable $100.00 "Save the Date" booking fee. This fee is credited toward your final floral proposal. To book your consultation, please contact us and be sure to leave your telephone number. We will contact you to finalize your consultation. To ensure your event date, we suggest you book your wedding or event six to twelve months in advance. Your consultation will be 1 to 2 hours in length. During this time, we will discuss how you envision your day, your colors, your wedding flowers and decor. We will assist you in selecting floral designs, decor items and linens that will best accent your special vision. We encourage all our brides to create a collection of likes – color, style, setting, bouquets etc. – and bring it to our meeting. This helps us interpret your style. Take some time to sit in your local bookstore and flip through wedding and event periodicals. Some of our favorites to reference are Bride & Bloom, Grace Ormonde, Wedding Flowers, Better Homes & Gardens Wedding Collections and Martha Stewart Weddings. The internet is also an amazing resource. Check out http://www.weddingchannel.com, http://www.theknot.com and http://www.weddingwire.com. There are a ton of resources on these websites and many great ideas.
After the ConsultationAfter your consultation, you will receive a wedding proposal and contract listing all of your wedding day selections. This proposal is very detailed and contains your estimated cost for your wedding day. Please review and return your signed contract within two weeks. Four weeks prior to your wedding day, we will meet again for your final appointment. At this meeting, we will review your proposal, confirm all details including last minute additions, finalize your order and accept final payment. This is when you can begin to get really excited because guess what? Your wedding is almost here!
