Decor Budgets and Why We Ask What They Are

Budgets - a word no one ever wants to talk about and we always feel weird asking, but in all honesty, us knowing what your budget is prior to coming in, is really a necessity.

Why? Because, first and foremost, we want to make sure we are a good fit for each other. As much as we would LOVE to be a part of every Bride's wedding, it's important to make sure your budget and our pricing 'marry'. (yes, the pun was intentional) ;) If you aren't sure of exactly your floral and decor budget, we can help guide you with giving a ballpark starting point based on your guest and bridal attendants count. That way, we don't waste your time by having coming in and discussing something that is no where close to the pricing you had in mind.

Knowing your budget will also help us give you ideas that work perfectly for your event and will ensure we are all on the same page. It will allow us to customize something to meet your needs, desires and expectations.

Unlike buying a car, by telling us your approximate budget, you aren't giving the game away. Our pricing and the cost of flowers aren't 'negotiable' business. It's our priority to provide quality product and unfortunately, pricing provided by our wholesalers is something we don't have control of.

Every florist and decor company will be completely different. Their processes, procedures, pricing, etc. - not one is the same. At Botanica, our number one priorities are the quality of product and the level of service we provide for each client. So perhaps the next time you meet with your decor company or when you start the decor company selection process, an important question to ask is what makes their company different from the next. We'd love to answer that question and share how important our clients and their experience throughout the entire process means to us!
