Q: Where is Floral Sunshine located?
Floral Sunshine’s design studio is located at 1991 NW Upshur St, Suite F. We are by appointment only. We are not your traditional walk-in flower shop. For event consultations and meetings, we will either meet you at our studio or at a mutual agreed upon location in the metro area. Or if you prefer a phone or email consultation, we offer that option too.
Q: Do you charge for consultations? How do they work?
Consultations are free! There’s no obligation until we both agree to work together. It’s as easy as scheduling a time and location and we can begin brainstorming. Many couples ask what they should bring or what they should do to prep for an efficient consultation. We suggest bringing any color swatches you might have (ex: bridesmaids dresses, linens), any pictures of flowers/décor that inspire you (ex: clipped out of a magazine, saved on your phone or pinned to your Pinterest page), the number and types of floral arrangements you want for your wedding, and/or your questions. Some brides come to the consultation on their own and others bring their groom, parent(s) or whole entourage. It is your choice and we are flexible and accommodating.
Q: How does payment work?
For weddings and events, the 35% of the payment is due at the time of booking, to secure your date. The final balance is due 4 weeks prior to the event. We accept cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MC, Discover, AmEx). If you have a special circumstance and would like to make different payment arrangements, we can discuss other options.
Q: Do you have a price list for wedding arrangements?
Every wedding order is customized to fit your personality, your budget, and your colors/theme. After our consultation, we will provide you a detailed quote and usually some options that show different price points. We’ve worked with various wedding floral budgets between $200 and over $5,000.
Q: Do you have generic wedding flower packages?
No. Price varies depending on the types of flowers, size, seasonal availability, and number of arrangements. We will create a custom package for you!
Q: Do you charge for delivery/set-up for weddings? How about tear-down?
Yes. Delivery/set-up prices typically range from $20 to $200 within the Portland / Vancouver / Salem area, however it highly depends on the number of items, distance, and nature of the set-up. When applicable, and if you require tear-down/pick-up at the end of your wedding – we can definitely discuss the details and help you with that.
Q: Can you guarantee the colors, types, and varieties of flowers I want for my wedding?
Floral Sunshine reserves the right to substitute flowers of equal or better quality in the event that the original flowers intended are not up to standard or are unavailable. We make every effort to coordinate according to event theme/colors. This rarely happens, but we include this disclaimer just in case!
Q: Do you do destination weddings?
Yes! We <3 destination weddings! We’ve done several large weddings on the Oregon coast, Central Oregon, in California and Hawaii. Please inquire further about destination weddings.
Q: How long have you been in business? What kind of experience do you have?
I’ve been designing floral arrangements for events since 2004. I officially started my business in 2009. I am a very versatile floral designer, and work with all types of clients, budgets, and styles. Please peruse my gallery for examples of my work and also check out my online reviews as testimonials.
