We work with a colour palette for your weddings & events and do not guarantee a specific flower will be included in the floral arrangements. You can always let us know your flower preferences and we will try our best to get them for you, but there are no guarantees. Flowers are perishable goods and there are so many factors that come into play that are beyond our control. Specific colours and shades of the flowers are also not guaranteed as some variation in colour is a natural phenomenon in nature. This is what makes each floral arrangement and each wedding unique.

Invitation & Stationery
What is the process to place an order for invitations?
You may send us pictures of inspirations you like along with the quantity of invitations needed and we can provide a rough quote through email. To make the design process more personal, we are happy to welcome you to our showroom to view our invitation samples, colour swatches and to discuss your specific needs. Once you decide to proceed with your invitation order, a non refundable and non transferable 50% initial payment is due along with a signed contract. Once these are received, we will order the materials and ask for your invitation wording so that we can create digital proofs for you to look over. Once you approve the digital proofs, we will put your order in line for printing and production. The remaining balance is due upon pickup of the finished invitations.
Do you have a minimum order for invitations?
All wedding invitation orders require a minimum of $550 before taxes. If you have an invitation with us, there is no minimum for event day stationery, but please let us know when you order your invitations so we can order the materials at the same time to avoid extra costs. We highly recommend that you order a sufficient quantity of “spares” to allow for such things as extra guests, keepsakes and the like. Each additional order will incur a $50 re-setup fee plus any other fees that may be involved. Re-ordering only a few can be very costly as our suppliers also have minimum quantities we have to meet.
What is the production timeline for invitations?

You maybe request for formatting revisions, it will take up to 3 business days to revise the proofs. Please allow 3 to 4 weeks for printing and production after the approval of the digital proofs.
