Frequently Asked Questions
How much do flowers cost?
This can vary depending on your needs and preferences. In total, couples generally spend an average of $700 to $6,500 (or 8-10% of their wedding budget) or $275-400 for just a bouquet and boutonniere for formals. I am happy to work with your budget.
After a consultation, I can give you a quote specific to your wedding. For an idea of average cost of different arrangements before a consultation (ie bouquet, boutonnieres, centerpieces), please fill out the wedding questionnaire on the contact page.
What cities do you do weddings in?
I am based out of Sandy, Utah and do weddings in Salt Lake County and Utah County. However, I am willing to travel for weddings outside of these areas if they are booked at least 3 months in advance.
What is your process?
Look over inspiration photos and discuss your vision for your wedding.
Initial quote and any adjustments needed before finalizing.
Booking your date (see payment plan FAQ)
Sit back and relax while I work out the details to make sure everything comes into place for your special day.
On the day of your wedding, before the ceremony, I will drop off flowers for the bridal party (bouquet, boutonnieres, corsages, etc.) unless you opt for personal pickup. I will then set up/install and place ceremony/reception flowers at the venue and leave after everything is fresh and ready for your ceremony/reception before guests begin arriving.
I will return to pick up vases and other rented hard goods the next day (Monday if the event is on a Saturday). If you choose the pickup option, I will expect rented hard goods to be returned within 1-3 business days.
What type of arrangements do you make?
Bridal Party (Line Flowers):
Bridal bouquet; boutonnière for groom, groomsmen, ring-bearer, fathers and grandfathers; bridesmaids bouquets; flower crowns for bride, bridesmaids or flower girls; corsages for mothers, grandmothers, or sisters, etc.
Ceremony and Reception:
Arch flowers, vase arrangements, aisle flowers, mantle decoration, wall or ceiling installations, table centerpieces or garlands, welcome table, book table, cake flowers, photo shoot backdrop, hanging flowers, swags on signs or chairs, etc.
(This is not an all inclusive list, I am always happy to branch out.)
Do you ever work with fake flowers?
Yes; most weddings I do are with fresh flowers, but on request I can make arrangements with silk flowers.
Do you grow the flowers yourself?
I do not. Different flowers are grown and come in from different parts of the U.S. and other countries based on the climate and season they grow best in. Unfortunately, Utah’s snowy weather isn’t the ideal place for doing that year round. I love incorporating flowers from local farmers during their growing season, from late spring to early fall.
Can I get a bouquet for bridals before my wedding day?
Absolutely! It is very common to order a bridal bouquet for photos prior to the wedding. If this takes place more than 24 hours before the wedding, I will charge the regular bouquet price. If it is the day before I will only charge a touch up fee to replace anything wilting in the bouquet so it is fresh for your ceremony/reception.
What is your background/qualifications?
Floral design has been my passion for 10 years, specializing in wedding design for the past 5 years. I have a B.S. in Horticulture and Floral Design, and have worked at flower shops, and alongside specialty wedding florists in Utah, Colorado, and Idaho. I started my own wedding floral business since 2018.
What types of payment are accepted and when do I need to pay?
I accept Venmo, Google Pay, cash, or card (processing fees apply).
Once a quote is agreed upon a deposit is paid to book your date, this is $150 for smaller weddings and 15% for larger weddings. This is non-refundable and goes toward the final price. Half payment is due two months prior to the wedding, and the balance is to be paid in full by one month prior to the wedding date.
(Individualized schedules will be created for last-minute bookings.)
What I will need from you:
Colors, style or inspiration photos, arrangements desired, favorite flowers, flowers you do not want, any plant allergies, and your budget
Date, time, and location of all wedding events
Contact info for bride and groom, and day-of contact
Names of people in wedding party receiving flowers, so they can be labeled
Name of photographer, and if I may use photos from them (with credit given) for social media and/or website
Contact information for wedding cake designer to coordinate flowers (if applicable)
I look forward to working with you. Please, don't hesitate to contact me with any further questions.
Do you do collaborations?
If you have a floral budget for your photoshoot and are looking for a florist to work with, please reach out through the general inquiry form. I love doing photoshoots throughout the year with other wedding industry professionals.
Can I have you do some of the flowers for my wedding and another vendor/company do the rest?
Bronte's Florals operates with exclusivity. Meaning, in order to protect the image and integrity of the work we provide, we are the sole and exclusive florist for the event. There are some cases we are able to work with decor that certain venues provide, but this should be discussed before booking your date. If you plan on ordering fake floral arrangements or having another person provide florals as well, we may not be the best fit.
