Where are you located?
Our studio is located at 624 N. Washington Street in Old Town Alexandria – between Pendleton and Wythe Streets. We are on the basement level, under the dentist’s sign.
Do I need to book an appointment?
Yes, please! Since we are a studio, and not a shop, we don’t keep regular hours, and we would hate to miss you if you stopped by. Please give us a call at 703-518-8488 (and please do leave a message if you don’t reach us) or send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org to make an appointment. We are closed on Tuesdays.
What happens during the meeting?
Since everything we do is custom, we use the meeting to get to know you and talk through your specific needs, your color palette and your preferred style and look for the event. Following the meeting we will send you a proposal with pricing and the design for the floral elements we will provide.
What do I need to bring to my appointment?
While we don’t expect you to know anything about flowers, it is always helpful if you are able to bring photos or swatches of clothing (such as bridal/bridesmaids dresses or suits and ties) as well as photos of floral arrangements you that you like or dislike.
Do you rent vases, containers and other items I may need for my event?
Absolutely! We have a wide range of vases, containers, and stands as well as pillars, chuppahs and arches to create a beautiful ceremony. Rentals are available only as part of your floral contract, however.
Do you have some pricing info I can use to inform my budget?
We know that events come in all sizes – and we love them all, big or small! We are committed to working with you so that your vision can be accomplished as best possible within your budget. To help you in your planning, we have provided the representative price list to the right. Prices may increase or decrease depending on specific flower used, size of arrangements, and container choices.
Do you offer other services?
In addition to designing the flowers and arrangements for your wedding, we do offer some additional services you might find helpful for your planning and on the day of the wedding.
- Design Coordination: In addition to helping you develop the design scheme with respect to the flowers, we can assist you with creating a cohesive event. This package includes a follow up design session, walk-through, linen and rentals selection, coordination of pipe & drape, lighting and/or plant rentals as necessary. Based on your vision, we can also develop a design plan for how the venue will be set up and decorated. $500-800.
- Reception Set Up and/or Clean Up: We can ensure that all additional items for your wedding are set up the day of the event, including table centerpieces, table numbers, escort cards, favors, picture displays, toasting flutes, cake serving sets or other details you have planned for the reception. Additionally, following the reception, we can return to retrieve and pack up your personal items and pack them into the appropriate vehicles. $200 and up
- Day of Event Management: Should you wish to have someone there for you throughout the day of the event, we can have a point of contact for your vendors, keep the event running smoothly, and resolve any problems that arise.
