Looking for a little more guidance on what the timeline looks like…
We have created this timeline for you to reference so you know exactly what to expect with your Heirloom Bouquet piece. If you do ever have any specific questions that are not answered here please feel free to reach out to us via email. We can’t wait to preserve this memory for you!
I. PLAN YOUR WEDDING.
Yay! You found us while planning your wedding! And we are so excited to create this heirloom piece for you! We ask that you purchase your piece before your wedding date so we can be ready for it. And we encourage you to purchase your piece earlier rather than later because we take on a limited number of bouquets each year.
If your wedding has already happened, please reach out to us via our contact form before going any further. We want to make sure your blooms are doing ok and will survive the shipping process.
II. SOLIDIFY YOUR OPTIONS AND PURCHASE YOUR PIECE.
Look through our “Options” page to see which backdrop color you may like. Then feel free to look around our website and social media for more images on what those backdrops look like paired with different framing options. You then purchase your piece from our Shop page. All purchases and options are final upon purchase.
III. READ OVER OUR SHIPPING TIPS.
We’ve created a page of tips complete with images for how best to send your bouquet to us so that we receive it with minimal damage. You can view that page here. This way you will have all the knowledge you need for how best to send your bouquet out to us. If you follow our tips then your bouquet should arrive in great condition.
IV. WEDDING DAY!!!
Yay!! Enjoy your big day! We suggest keeping your bouquet as hydrated as possible throughout the day so the blooms stay as luscious as possible.
V. SHIP YOUR BOUQUET TO US & SEND US YOUR LIST OF FLORAL NAMES.
Early Monday morning we ask that you overnight your bouquet to us. We ask that you follow our shipping tips as closely as possible as each tip is there for a specific reason. You can then ship your bouquet and include your paid invoice to:
The Heirloom Bouquet
9 Sunset Rd.
Scarborough ME, 04074
DO NOT SHIP US YOUR BOUQUET WITHOUT CONTACTING US FIRST. We do not guarantee that your bouquet will be able to be preserved if you do not contact us first.
DO NOT REQUIRE A SIGNATURE. FedEx knows exactly where to bring the boxes and we are sometimes not available for their delivery.
DO NOT SEND ANYTHING YOU WANT BACK. We have a company that ships your piece for us so we can not send anything back with your piece.
After you’ve shipped your bouquet, please send us a list of all the floral in your bouquet so we can confirm which flowers are yours. Please reach out to your florist to get the exact list of floral.
VI. WE CREATE!
We will receive your bouquet, fix and rehydrate any blooms that need some help, and then get started on creating. Once your piece is created we will have the calligraphy drawn up, and then have your piece printed, matted, and framed if applicable. Because of the custom nature of each piece, it typically takes 6-12 weeks from start to finish.
