Frequently Asked Questions

 

What types of wedding flowers do you offer?

Mums N’ Roses can provide anything from personal flowers (bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages) to reception centerpieces and ceremony arrangements.

Do you offer wedding packages?

No. We have found that every wedding is unique in size, components, and location(s) which requires different degrees of product and labor.

What is your service area?

At this time, Mums N’ Roses is servicing weddings in the Mammoth Lakes & June Lake area.  

 

What is the floral planning process like?

Once availability is determined, you will fill out and return a floral planning document. Next, we'll arrange a hour consultation via zoom or in-person (depending) to discuss vision, logistics, and budget. Next, a curated pricing proposal of goods and services will be sent to you along with the proposed contract to accept or reject. If accepted, you'll also submit an initial retainer payment.

 

Is the consultation free?

The initial one hour consultation is free and is why you should come prepared to make best use of this time together. Venue walks, additional consultation time, and proposal changes needed beyond the complimentary allotment will be charged an hourly rate of $60.00 per hour (billed in 15 minute increments) will be charged and added to your bill.

What should I bring to my wedding consultation?

Anything you feel would be helpful in designing your flowers: design boards, dress photos, fabric swatches, etc. We can also set-up a Private Pinterest Board for collaboration, or, you can share an existing board with me.

Who should I bring to my wedding consultation?

 

How much is the deposit and when are payments due?

A non-refundable retainer of 30% of the proposed amount is required to secure services for your wedding/event date. This retainer will be applied towards your final bill. The final payment is due 14 days prior to your wedding.

 

Can I make changes to the proposal after we sign the agreement?  

Yes, changes are welcomed and expected to a certain degree: numbers of corsages or centerpieces, for example, can be made as we get closer to your wedding and are minor. All final changes be made 21 days prior to your event. After the initial proposal is sent, we offer two complimentary “reworks” of the proposal details and pricing. Changes may also not reduce the original total beyond -20% of the originally signed proposal. Again, any proposal work requested beyond the initial proposal and two complimentary reworks will be charged an hourly consultation rate of $60.00 per hour (billed in 15 minute increments).

 

Do you have a minimum order amount?  

Yes. Our minimum order amount is $4,000.00 for any full size weddings requiring setup, and $2,000.00 for more intimate "morning pick-up" orders (no ceremony arch installations for pick-up orders).

 

Do you have a delivery and setup charge? 

Yes. Delivery and setup charges are determined by the number of locations involved in the delivery and setup, difficulty of setup, if rental pick up is needed, and/or if repurposing of ceremony pieces is needed. This is calculated on a case-by-case basis, but you can expect to pay anywhere from $100.00 - $2,000.00 for our delivery and set-up fees based on how simple or extravagant of a production is needed.

 

Do you rent vases and other inventory?

Yes, some of our arrangements are sold with the vase included, so that the centerpieces are yours at the end of your event, but most of our reception arrangements are priced with the vessel as a rental. Please note: Any rentals will need to have a separate rental agreement and credit card on file for damaged and/or unreturned items. Can I supply my own vases? • Yes, but all vases must be clean, have a water-tight or have a liner inside, all stickers removed, be given to us no less than 3 days prior to the event, and no more than one month prior to your event. We must sign off on the vessel before to ensure it’s the proper size. It’s not in your best interest to get a larger vessel than what is discussed, as we will not have enough flowers to fill the vase and the arrangement will look weak. Can we order in bulk? • At this time, we do not fulfill bulk or wholesale flower orders. Thank you for understanding. Why should I hire a florist? • Think about it: do you really need the stress of assembling floral arrangements and bouquets the night before your destination wedding? We are the flower experts! Let us do the work and avoid the worry over how everything will turn out and how to move them around

 What should I bring to my consultation?

Anything that could be helpful in designing your flowers (dress photos, design boards, etc). We can set-up a private pinterest board for collaboration prior to meeting or you're welcome to share an existing pinterest flower board. 

 Who should I bring to my consultation?

Planning your flowers should be fun. Only bring those who will bring positivity and respect to your ideas for YOUR big day. It seems that less is more and things can get off track when too many hands are in the cookie jar. Remember, you want to make the most of your consultation time!

Can I make changes to my contract?

 

Yes, changes are expected (to some degree) for quantities of centerpieces, boutonnieres, etc. as you narrow down the guest list. However, you should have a fair estimate of what you'll need when you fill out the planner. All final changes must be made 21 days prior to your event. Again, the initial proposal and two complimentary “reworks” are included. Changes beyond this will incur the $60.00 per hour consultation fee (billed in 15 minute increments) and will be added to your total bill for the additional work being requested.

  3. For more intimate weddings (50 guests or less): $3,000.00 minimum

 

Is delivery and setup included?

No. Delivery and setup fees are unique to each event and calculated specifically by the number of venue locations involved in the delivery/setup, difficulty of setup, how much staffing is needed for the setup and timeline, if rental pickup is needed, and/or if ceremony repurpose is being requested.

 

 Do you rent vases and other inventory?

 

Yes, however we do require a credit card be kept on file for damaged or unreturned items. We can also sell the arrangements with a vase included, but must arrange for this ahead of time so we can source vases. Our rental vases are not for purchase after the event as other weddings have rented them for their upcoming events and we don't have time to resource.  

Can I order flowers in bulk?

 

Not at this time. Thanks for understanding!
