May has over 6 years experience in the floral industry, doing everything from small bouquets, looking after customers, weddings, graduations, funerals and more. In the 3 years Blooms by May has been in business, we have done over 30 weddings.
For this beautiful black, white and purple wedding, the bride opted to bring lace from her mother's wedding dress for me to include!
It can be seen in the bride's bouquet (left) and in the corsage (bottom right).
The flowers below, as well as the bouquet to the right were made with silk flowers, but fresh greenery. The bride brought in a collection of seashells from a craft store to complete her wedding theme! She was supposed to have a destination wedding - but COVID-19 had other plans.
Q: Can I bring my own vases?
A: Of course! As long as they are brought in at least 1 week prior to the wedding, and we know the size at time of order, you are more than welcome to bring your own containers.
Q: How much notice do you need?
A: Ideally, 1-2 months. Of course, this depends on what you are looking for. If you simply want red roses, we are likely able to help you in less than a month. If you are looking for a certain shade of peony, a month or more is ideal.
Q: How much does a wedding cost with you?
A: It really depends on what flowers you pick. If you choose carnations and babies breath, it will be a lot less expensive than lilies and peonies. We have done weddings for as little as $150, and as high as $5,000. The average spend is between $450-$700.
Q: Can I bring my own accessories?
A: Yes! Brides have brought everything to me from ribbon or lace of their own, to seashells, to small fake gems.
