Wedding Flower FAQs
When you choose The Flower House Cheshire as your wedding florist, we invite you to our flower shop for a cup of coffee or tea, chat about your wedding ideas & provide a quote for your wedding flowers. Here are some of our frequently asked questions about our wedding flower consultations...
Our wedding flower consultations are by appointment only from Monday to Friday between 2.00pm and 4.00pm, or Saturday between 11.00am and 3.00pm.
The consultation is free - it gives you a chance to know us and vice versa. To reserve your date we charge a non-refundable deposit of just £100* (*The £100 payment will be deducted from your final wedding flower invoice).
We do a lot of work behind the scenes that goes into the design process; not just during your wedding flowers consultation but also time spent researching, sourcing and creating a detailed quote that is completely bespoke and personal for your wedding flowers.
If it’s just bouquets and buttonholes you require for your wedding, then you probably don’t need to come in for a consultation, just send us a photo of your design via our contact email and we can come back to you with a personalised price. Please note that we do have a minimum spend of £500 for our bespoke wedding flowers service.
A consultation with one of our wedding florist specialists will take as long as required but an hour is typically what we would advise.
Most of our brides will come with scrap books or Pinterest boards filled with their ideas, and list of their exact requirements. Other brides come without any ideas at all. Whatever way you are inclined to attend, we are experienced at making suggestions and guiding you in your ideas.
You may be a very flowery person and have a vast knowledge of flowers names. Equally you may know what you like but have no clue about flowers - don’t worry! If you bring images that give the overall look of what you’re hoping to achieve or perhaps you’ve found a picture of THE bouquet for you, bring those images along and we can tell you what those flowers are, if they will be in season for your wedding day and together design something beautiful.
It is worth thinking about what flowers you may need – this can include bridal bouquets, boutonnieres, dried confetti petals, church candelabras, floral archways, venue decoration, flowers on the cake, table centres and even car decorations.
Our consultations are by appointment only at our Macclesfield florist boutique. See our contact page for a map and parking information.
We always say to allow 14 working days (Monday – Saturday) from the date of your consultation but where possible we will do our best to get it back to you sooner.
Yes, we will contact you approximately 2 months prior to your wedding date (if not sooner) to schedule a finalisation consultation. This can be face to face or via telephone if required.
Due to the nature of our job we are very busy and aren’t always available to see Brides that pop in without an appointment. So, all our consultations are by appointment only.
