How It Works

We understand that wedding and event planning can sometimes be an intimidating and daunting process. At Julia’s Blooms it is our goal to make that process a little less daunting, and turn it into one that can even be…fun! We start with a complimentary consultation appointment, where we take the time to get to know you so we can help you plan an event that will be a reflection of YOUR unique personality and style. We typically plan on these appointments taking at least an hour, and we will cover everything from bouquets and body flowers to church and reception decorations.

In order for your consultation to go as smoothly as possible, we have created a comprehensive Pre-Consultation Checklist for your use.  Prior to your consultation appointment, take a moment to fill in as much information as possible and bring it along with you to your meeting.  Other items that will be helpful for you to think about or bring along are the following:

  • Color swatches of dresses
  • Theme of wedding/event
  • Pictures of bouquets/arrangements/flowers that you love (and/or ones that you DO NOT like at all!) to help us get a feel for your style.  Smartphones and Smartpads work perfect for this if you do not want to print anything out.
  • An idea of your floral budget in order for us to help you choose flowers that will be beautiful but also help you stay within your budget (please refer to our average wedding flower price list to help you get a feel for our pricing)
  • Contact information for other vendors (i.e., event planner, venue coordinator, baker, D.J., caterer)

Once we have completed our consultation, we will customize an estimate for you and email it to you within a few days for your review.

As we strive to provide creative, personal, unforgettable floral designs for every event, we do limit the number of events we book on a given weekend. When you have decided that you would like to book Julia’s Blooms as your floral designers, we ask for a $200.00 deposit and a signed service agreement to reserve your date. At that point consider us your exclusive floral designer for your event!

We do realize that wedding and event planning can be an ever-changing process. Therefore, we are happy to correspond with you via telephone, email, or follow-up appointments at any time.

As the date of your wedding or event approaches, we always schedule another face-to-face appointment to review your order and make sure that your event will be what you dreamed it would be. We like to do this finalization appointment two to four weeks prior to the event. At this time, we will review the designs and confirm quantities needed. It is helpful to have this appointment after you have confirmed table counts with your event venue,  as we do require payment in full at this time.

On the day of your event, Julia’s Blooms will deliver and set up the floral arrangements for you (delivery and set-up fee determined by event location and amount of set up involved).  We are also happy to return at the end of your event to provide our “tear-down” service, where we will clean up and remove all rental vases and floral decor, leaving you to enjoy the rest of your evening worry free.

Finally and most importantly, just relax and enjoy your day, knowing your flowers are in good hands with Julia’s Blooms!
