Weddings by Bloomsters
At Bloomster's our experienced staff is ready and excited to assist you in selecting floral arrangements and decor to accent your wedding day. From simple to simply magnificent we are prepared to make your floral selections match your unique vision. We have several photo books and photo albums of arrangements we have created for other weddings for you to browse at your convenience. You may also visit a vast selection of our wedding work on display in our facebook photo albums. These resources can help you develop ideas and a vision for your wedding flowers.
Following your first consultation meeting, we will estimate the cost of each piece proposed based on the colors and flowers that fit your style. We encourage brides to bring in fabric swatches, photographs, and other items that will help us interpret the style of your wedding. To secure your wedding date on our calendar a 30% deposit must be paid in advance on the estimated balance reflected in your approved proposal, which will reserve Bloomster's as your florist. After which, an appointment will be made to view a prototype on a date appropriate for any seasonal floral selections.
Two weeks before the wedding date, you will come in for your final appointment. At this time we will review and complete the order, confirm all details, accept the final payment (cash or check only), and finalize your order. The day before the wedding the bride is invited back to the store to view her flowers.
Questions to think about and discuss with your fiance:
• Which family members and wedding participants will wear or carry flowers? - Don' forget about Readers, Musicians, Ushers, the Minister, Candle Lighters, Extended Family, etc.
• Are there any meaningful mementos (e.g. Bible, broach, handkerchief) that you would like incorporated into your wedding flowers.
• Are there any flower allergies in the wedding party the florist should be aware of?
• Will you need a bouquet to toss at the reception?
• Do you want flowers on your cake? A cake topper

Understanding Fresh Cut Flowers
To facilitate communication and understanding, Bloomster's has compiled some information about the nature of your wedding flowers.
Flowers are fresh produce, which like any other fresh produce in a grocery store, is subject to price fluctuation due to market demand and availability. There is natural variation in color, size, and shape when comparing two of the same flower. There is no guarantee that one bunch/bundle of flowers will look identical to another bunch/bundle of the same flower.
Flowers are a fresh grown product, sometimes certain types of flowers or specific colors are unavailable different times of the year, usually predictable based on season but occasionally sporadically due to unfavorable growing conditions, holidays, etc. If a flower you have chosen becomes unavailable we will communicate with you as soon as we know to help you choose a comparable bloom to replace it.
Flowers are best kept in a cool but stable environment. All flowers should be kept away from warm or cool drafts, out of direct sunlight, and as cool as possible but always above 34 degrees. Outdoor temperatures in the summer are warmer than desired for fresh flowers. Flowers should never be left in a vehicle.
Unless otherwise noted, all vases are to be returned to Bloomster's by the Friday following your wedding or event to avoid acquiring additional cost for the vase.
