Planning a Wedding?

Congratulations on your engagement and thank you for considering Cottage Grove Florist to enhance your special day. Cottage Grove Florist has had the honor of sharing in generations of treasured memories. We will work with you to create the wedding of your dreams! We believe a wedding should be a distinctly personal celebration and realize that wedding flowers help set the tone for your wedding day. We bundle beautiful flowers with rich textures and mix in innovative ideas by thinking above and beyond the ordinary no matter how grand or how intimate. Our focus is to listen closely to your thoughts and visions and use our knowledge of flowers to create the flowers for your wedding. 

  

The Process

  

We are frequently asked how soon you need to make an appointment. The answer is: when you are ready. We recommend finalizing all your plans three months in advance to help your peace of mind. We order your flowers approximately 4 weeks before your wedding and they will arrive fresh, mid-week before your wedding day.

We suggest you meet with your caterer or function coordinator, cake designer, ceremony site (to find out about any rules and regulations), and, of course, have chosen your gown before meeting with us. It is helpful to have fabric swatches, venue contact information, special delivery requirements and any photographs you have gathered with you.

Consultations are by appointment, with after hours and weekends available upon request. Consultation is at no charge or obligation. Appointments usually require 45 to 90 minutes. At the end of the appointment (unless there are several open issues), you will be given an itemized estimate. If you choose Cottage Grove Florist as the florist for your wedding, we require a deposit of $100 to reserve and secure your date. You will also be given a copy of our Wedding Contract which details when payment is due and cancelation policy. Schedule a consultation with one of our experienced wedding designers. Payment for your flowers is required 6 weeks before your wedding date.

Cottage Grove Florist's flowers come from local markets and direct markets from around the world. The global distribution of flowers and new growing techniques allow for increased availability of traditionally seasonal flowers throughout the year. This means that most flowers are now available year round. Flower prices vary from one variety to another and the selection of flowers can affect the price of an arrangement as much as the actual size. You will find a flower budget calculator here to help you in your initial planning.

We welcome the opportunity to speak with you about our unique approach to the design and execution of your special event; and to show you why our clients say that we have…….turned their dreams into reality!

All deposits go towards your flowers and will be subtracted from your final bill. Deposits are non-refundable.
