We like to think that a major part of planning a wedding is choosing the flowers. With traditional weddings becoming a memory of the past, there are so many options for modern brides to consider.
When choosing a floral designer it is best to set up a consultation so that you can get to know and create a bond between you and the designer. If you do not know the designer, the designer cannot create the right design for you. Here at J.Kinney you will meet with either our head designer and owner Jane to discuss the vision for your wedding. We suggest meeting about 3-8 months before the big day. A consultation will take between 15 and 30 minutes. Once here we discuss each item you are considering have us design. We encourage you to bring clippings from bridal magazines of flowers, arrangements, or colours that you like.
After the consultation we will send you a copy of your floral quote with a description and price of all the items we will create for your wedding.
Please give us a call at 608.255.7500 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a consultation.
Many brides want to meet a year or more before their big day. To make the most of a full floral consultation it is best to know 3 things. First, what colours you would like to use or at lease what colour your bridesmaid’s dresses will be. We also like to incorporate the style and feeling of the ceremony and reception location into the design. Therefore knowing the venue(s) is helpful as well. Finally, what piece you will need for your wedding – Are you thinking of having an archway, bar arrangements, and 15 corsages for all your aunts or do you only need a few table arrangements, bouquets, and boutonnieres? If you don’t know these things yet, that’s ok! We welcome you to visit our store and website to get a feel for our style and personality. You can also set up a meeting to get to know us, discuss ideas, and answer any of your questions. When you are ready for a full consultation we can meet with you again to discuss a finalized design plan and determine price.
We do not give price quotes via phone or email without a consultation for two reasons:
1. An important part in creating the perfect floral arrangements for you and your wedding is to choose a designer that can represent your style. Price is an easy variable to change. We can make an item smaller or use less expensive flower but you can’t change the style and personality of a person.
2. Flowers come in all shades, shapes, and sizes. When a bride says she wants a pink rose bouquet we need to establish what type of pink, what type of rose, and what size bouquet is most appropriate for you. These answers also determine the price. Establishing the answers for these questions is much easier and more accurate when we can meet you or at least have a phone consultation for those brides who cannot meet in our store.
