(and why you shouldn't worry!)
1. I'm too far away to bring you the bouquet in person, can I really send it in the post?
Absolutely! And it's much less daunting than it sounds at first, I promise! I have full step-by-step instructions for packing up the bouquet on this link:
And if you are too busy to find a box or you think the day after the wedding is going to be a struggle then I can even send you a flat-packed P&P pack with everything you will need to send your bouquet to me quickly and easily.
2. I'm going on honeymoon the next day. How can I get the bouquet to you?
You will be surprised how many favours you can pull in as a stressed-out bride. Just mention it to your mum/sister/maid of honour and I'm sure they will be happy to help you out. Who knows, they may even offer to contribute towards the cost as a wedding present. I can always make them a little thank you pressie to show how grateful you are.
3. What can I do to make the results as good as possible?
I do have a few tricks up my sleeve for reviving and rescuing elderly flowers but there are a few things you can do to help me out. Make sure your florist knows your flowers have to be super duper fresh (and why - so you don't look like a bridezilla). Try not to put your bouquet down on its side for too long during the day or the flowers on the edge will get bruised. Get someone to put the bouquet in water towards the end of the night - send a waiter to get a pint glass or a wine cooler with a few inches of water in and stash it in a safe place. Don't even think about putting it in a fridge or freezer. It's a bad idea! Indoors and out of direct sunlight is just fine. Get the bouquet to me as soon as humanly possible after the wedding!
4. I really love the idea of bouquet preservation but I'm not sure I can afford it.
Pricing is very tricky for me as I don't want to make my products unaffordable for any bride but I have to consider my costs and my time. The good news is that I only require a £60 deposit to take your order. The rest is not due until the order is finished 2-3 months after the wedding. If you want to keep the cost down as much as possible then your best option is to go for a small blanket frame. Or keep checking back on my website and enter my competitions!
5. My wedding was yesterday. Have I left it too late?
Maybe not! It's always worth giving me a call and seeing if I can still squeeze you in this week. The answer is often yes. Why not call me now on 07974 o75 654 or emailing me on firstname.lastname@example.org
