Helpful tips to get you started
Wedding consultation -
Firstly get in touch via our contact page where we will check if your date is available. From there we will take more details and get started on your planning. If we are not available we will recommend another florist you might like.
Planning your flowers -
It helps if you do a little research into the types of flowers and design you like – everyone’s tastes are different and there are hundreds of options when it comes to flower design. Even sending one or two inspiration photos or a favourite colour can point us in the right direction. You can get some inspiration by looking at our Instagram @birch_and_bloom.
You don’t need to have thought through every single detail, we are happy to provide suggestions and options to fit your budget, every wedding we do is completely bespoke to yourself.
Booking process -
Initial discussions are carried out via email, phone or in person if you wish. Once we have done this you will receive a proposal via email followed by your quote. Your date is secured once you have paid the 30% non-refundable booking fee and signed our wedding contract.
We recommend paying your 30% booking fee as early as possible as we only take a limited number of weddings each month. After your deposit is paid we can easily sort through changes and revisions to the order details, nothing needs to be firmly set in stone until much nearer your wedding day. However your date is not secured until you have paid your booking fee.
We are based just outside of Edinburgh in Kirkliston and cover the central belt. Nowhere in Scotland is out of the question so please get in touch to check. We will go further afield however with every journey mileage is charged.
What happens next?
You are very welcome to keep in touch via email or phone, with any ideas and updates you might have until we finalise the designs approx 6 weeks before the wedding day. This is when the balancing payment is due to be paid (please see Terms & Conditions for more info about payments/postponements/cancellations)
