Are You Ready to Say 'I Do!'?
Great! Get started with these three convenient steps and helpful consultation tips that will take you from "She said yes!" to "I do!" I offer flexible consultation appointment times, a no-pressure approach to learning more about the All Occasion Silk Creations experience, and a straightforward breakdown of your investment.
Every couple that books also gains access to their private password-protected client portal to keep organized along the way. Find all of your contracts, invoices, appointments, and correspondence in one easy-to-access location.
Step 1: Submit Your Pre-Consultation Form
The first step is to schedule your complimentary consultation via your pre-consultation form. This information helps me get to know you a little better before we meet and gives you access to "In Bloom," our exclusive bride guide.
If I am available for your date and a good fit for your wedding, I will send you a link to book your consultation at a time that works best for you via our online scheduling system.
Step 2: Attend Your Consultation
At your consultation, we'll review your pre-consultation form together and discuss floral designs and options that fit your personality and the look you want for your big day, everything from flower types and available colors to bouquet styles. Don't worry if you're not sure of where to begin; I'm happy to walk alongside you in the planning process.
Step 3: Reserve Your Wedding Date
At your consultation, you'll receive a detailed quote for your flowers and a contract to review, both of which are required to reserve your wedding date. Once received, you can officially call yourself an All Occasion Silk Creations bride!
I'll get to work on creating the most beautiful, I-can't-believe-those-aren't-real flowers that you've ever seen!
Planning For Your Consultation
Appointments typically last between 45-60 minutes for most couples.
As a courtesy, please let me know ASAP if you cannot keep your consultation appointment. You may call or cancel/change your appointment directly from your consultation confirmation email.
Tips for your consultation:
- Bring along your design inspiration and let's dream up something spectacular! I'll listen to your wildest dreams and make them happen, with the least amount of stress possible. I love to see everything from your wedding gown and your bridesmaids’ dresses to decorations and venue photos.
- Don't forget those fabric swatches! Having a tangible color and material to reference ensures I have an accurate vision of your bridal party dresses and/or linens.
- Be open and realistic about your budget. Doing so will help me bring your vision to reality with flower options and design elements that create a cohesive look and reflect your individual personality and style. Focus your meeting on more than just getting a price; learn what sets a vendor apart with service and quality, not just value. Only gathering prices will lead to a variety of costs, but says little about the experience and quality of work you'll receive for your big day.
- I recommend bringing along just one or two supportive friends or family members. Too many outside opinions can easily become overwhelming for many brides. Keep in mind the old saying: "Too many cooks spoil the broth."
Happy Little Tears
"As beautiful as a fresh bouquet of flowers are, I knew I wanted silk flowers because I'm getting married in March without access to a fridge to keep them cool. After searching for something that looked natural, and scouring Hobby Lobby's across the east coast for a natural look, I finally found Susan through a recommendation. She was fantastic to work with - I am not local, and I had zero idea what I wanted. When I finally received my shipments 8 weeks before the wedding, I just sat on my living room and had happy little tears. They were perfect. I am SO pleased by how they look! They're full, they look natural, and they are obviously lovingly created."
Professional and Beautiful
"All Occasion Silk Creations did an awesome job for my daughter's wedding. I would HIGHLY recommend them...professional, beautiful flowers (bouquets, kissing balls, table arrangements, etc.), and affordable. We had many compliments at the wedding and afterward."
Denise (mother-of-the-bride), 4/30/16
