A few more tips:

  • We’ve found FedEx is the most reliable way to overnight ship your bouquet
  • Please overnight/next day your bouquet as quickly as possible. If flowers do not arrive to us as soon as possible we may not be able to create your piece.
  • Once you’ve shipped your bouquet to us please send us over the list of floral included in your bouquet so we can get the calligraphy started
  • Once we receive your wedding bouquet we will then invoice you for your final payment. Once that is paid we will be able to have your piece finished and sent over to you!
