Q’s & A’s
1. When is the best time to approach you for our wedding florals?
We generally find the best time to approach us for your floral concepts is when you have a venue, THE dress and a colour scheme in mind. GLR can book out for the wedding season as much as one year in advance, so if you are sure you want us to do your wedding but have no idea where it’s going to be or what you are wearing yet, you are able to pay a $350 non-refundable deposit to secure the date. We will then make contact 12 months out from your wedding, and so forth.
2. Do you have a price list?
As our designs are bespoke, ‘made to measure’ so to speak, we cannot possibly be priced as such until we know exactly what is going into your bouquet. We do however have a ‘price guide’ which we are more than willing to supply to you once you have made an enquiry into our services. Seasons and market demand alter the prices of flowers from one season to another – and mother nature is not always as dependable as we would like! You will be able to obtain an obligation free concept plan with pricing after we first make contact.
3. What if I can’t meet you face to face?
The Sunshine Coast is a Wedding destination region – we have brides from as far away as the UK and US make contact via email and we are still able to plan, execute and deliver a beautiful wedding without having ever met the couple! Obviously this is not ideal, but sometimes it is necessary. In such circumstances we find the advice of a wedding planner or stylist is highly recommended to ensure continuity throughout the styling and flawless communication between your suppliers. We can recommend some fantastic stylists and planners here on the Sunshine Coast!
4. Why do wedding flowers cost more than store bought flowers or DIY?
There is a lot that goes into selecting, organising and creating your floral concepts. Early morning market runs to Brisbane (choosing the best blooms, refrigeration, water, petrol…), time preparing the flowers (freeing them from plastic, stripping them of leaves, cutting their ends), time putting it all together (wiring the flowers, tweaking them free of bad petals, getting rid of thorns and leaves…), choice ribbon imported from France for your handles, silk ribbons hand dyed (by us at times!), boxes, tissue paper, tissue paper…it all adds up! In the end what you have is a one of a kind, lovingly created and stately piece that screams sophistication, creativeness and elegance.
5. Do you have a minimum spend?
During peak season we do have a minimum spend to specific areas. Peak season is any date between March-May and August-October. Minimum spend is $1500.00 for all weddings in the following areas:
- Noosa North Shore Retreat
Any other area of the coast carries no minimum spend requirements, however we always recommend picking up wedding flowers from our studio in Shelly Beach if you do not have ceremony or reception installations.
