I just received a proposal from a florist for $4k, but it barely includes any detail, just the price per item and a few things that are copied and pasted from a form I filled out. It doesn’t include what flowers or colors will ultimately be in the arrangements - just a few things (from my form) like “gradient of pink”. Is it too much to ask to receive more detail than that? I am not even sure how to cut this down since it’s unclear what’s included. For such a high price point I don’t want to be completely shocked on my wedding day, even though I know nothing goes as planned. What’s normally included in the florist contract/proposal?
Move on to someone else. There are so many vendors who actually care about your business.
I wouldn’t feel comfortable with that. I sent our florist a photo of our inspirations and she sent back a very detailed proposal calling out each item, detailing the types of flowers and a cost. Maybe ask for a break down or look for other florist.
This sort of sounds like the florists I talked to.. If you haven't hired them yet, I imagine they can't give too much detail? Once you sign a contract and actually meet with them about what you want, then I would expect a more customized quote.
Hi Lauren! I am a little nervous for you, given the price of the proposal. It seems very expensive to me, with very little detail. My florist spoke with me on the phone about my vision and then put together a custom proposal. The proposal included a conceptual design page, an agreement page, a blooms page listing all the flowers that would be used, and then several pages that itemized every single product and its cost. Here is a photo of the cover page. My suggestion would be to keep browsing florists in your area and see if there may be a better fit for you! I hope this helps.
I talked to four places all coming in around $2-3K. Half gave me a quote with a price breakdown of each item but not any detail about colors or flower choice or showing any examples of previous designs. Half asked me for a Pinterest board and came up with a customized proposal with pictures of example flowers and color choices. I obviously ended up going with the florist that gave me the more detailed proposal. You can always ask for more detailed info or ask questions if you’re not satisfied with the initial proposal.
