When should I make an appointment to discuss wedding flowers?
That depends on when your wedding is happening. If your wedding is scheduled during prime wedding months of April – June, or October – December, then we recommend you schedule the consultation at least 6-8 months in advance. We also recommend scheduling the consultation after you’ve chosen your color scheme, venue, and attendants’ attire, so you have a starting place to begin discussing which flowers will best fit your theme.
What is your service area?
Our primary service area is Denton, TX and surrounding area - approximately 60 miles. Weddings and events beyond 60 miles (Destination Weddings) are subject to a minimum budget to be determined according to size, travel distance, and possible lodging requirements.
What should we expect to pay for wedding flowers?
We understand that each couple has a personal and unique vision for their wedding. There are a lot of options when it comes to flowers, and prices vary widely depending on what type of flowers you want and how many items you're looking for. Once we have the information about your particular wedding needs, we'll be happy to tell you what it will cost. We can tell you that on average, most of our clients spend between $3,000 - $4,500 for their wedding flowers. We do have some wonderful options for smaller weddings - just ask us!
Do you provide flowers for events besides weddings?
Yes! We love designing for corporate events, luncheons, or any occasion where flowers would add the perfect finishing touch. We will be happy to meet with you at your place of business to discuss your event and any floral needs you may have.
Do you offer other décor items in addition to flowers?
Yes! Laughing Earth Flowers is happy to offer a wide variety of rental décor items such as lanterns, mirrors, decorative fabrics (for use with floral décor, we don’t supply items like table linens or chair covers), pillars, and several styles of candle holders, vases, and urns.
What do I have to do to secure my wedding or corporate event date on your calendar?
Completion of your first payment & signing of the agreement will serve to reserve your date on our calendar.
Can I pay in installments?
Yes, we will be happy to create a schedule for payments. Exactly how many payments you make will depend on the amount of time you have before your wedding or corporate event, and we do require that the flowers be paid in full no later than 30 days prior to your event date.
Do you charge for consultations?
There is no charge for the basic consultations. Generally speaking this includes one meeting in the months before the wedding/event and possibly one follow-up meeting closer to the event date. However, while we almost never do this, Laughing Earth Flowers does reserve the right to charge for additional consultations resulting from any major changes from the initial proposal, or if additional meetings are needed to plan more complicated floral installations. Rates will be determined based on level of complication and time necessary for successful completion of the project.
Who should I bring with me to my consultations?
It is our experience that bringing too many people to the consultation tends to be unproductive. Too many individuals all giving you friendly advice can cause undue stress and confusion. Laughing Earth Flowers recommends that you bring only one other person, especially the person responsible for paying for the flowers so they have a good idea about what will be involved with the décor and can ask questions as they arise during the conversation.
What should I expect at the consultation?
Prior to your appointment you will receive a brief questionnaire about your wedding/event needs. If time allows, please e-mail the completed form at least a few days before the consultation, along with any photos or inspiration pictures that illustrate the style you think you would like to incorporate into the overall designs. You should plan on about 1 – 2 hours for the meeting.
