We have always and will always design with attention to detail and a mindful heart, no matter the budget.   Image above by Odessa James Photography at The Meshewa House in Cincinnati, Ohio with KMC Weddings and Events Bridal bouquets average $250-$395 Maids bouquets range $75-$175 Boutonnieres range $15-20ea Flower crowns range $75-$275 Wrist and Pin on Corsages – $35-45 Altar/Ceremony Arrangements start at $350-$750+ depending on design Arch Arrangements start at $275-$3500+ depending on the design Aisle/pew decorations/bouquets average $30-$75 Tall floral centerpieces average $300-$875+ Low floral centerpieces typically range $100-$375+ Elevated + Custom Installs – these vary greatly, but we see them starting around $1250 and go up from there, typically falling in a $2500-$4500 ranges (depending on the size of install, of course!)

To us its more than just flowers!

Photography by Sarah Babcock Studio – The Dayton Arcade – Nuage Linens – Table Top by Prime Time Party Rental – KMC Weddings If wedding flowers are a top priority for your wedding day, you’ll want to hire an event florist who specializes in wedding work. There are different types of florists with different areas of expertise. Your local flower shop can design bouquets and centerpieces for you, but they probably don’t offer the extensive rental selection a wedding florist does.  Elaborate custom pieces probably aren’t an option. The type of florist you’ll want to work with depends completely on your vision for your wedding flowers! At Floral V Designs, weddings are our passion, and our team has years of experience creating custom designs to reflect our couples. Cady, Lauren or Kim sit down with each potential client to discuss their wedding day wish-list, priorities, and budget. We will create a proposal specifically tailored to that couple. The proposal is just the beginning, however: weddings are productions that require a great deal of time, skill and effort to bring a couple’s vision to life!   Photography by Sarah Babcock Studio – Draping by Unlimited Events – Dayton Arcade Design and Planning by KMC Weddings When you hire an event florist, you’re investing in a product and a service. It all starts with consultations, crafting custom proposals, sketching concepts.  From there we answer questions and changes throughout the planning process. Next we design and set the wedding, flip the ceremony, and tear down the event.  As you see there is a lot of time and skill that goes into making a wedding event! Many wedding florists, like Floral V Designs, are actually floral and event designers. This means we are often involved with the overall design of a wedding, and not […]

We just signed our contract. Now what do we do?

  This is the worst part… the wait for the big day! Feel free to reach out as you continue planing to make adjustments, or to just get advice on different aspects of the day. We have been a part of thousands of weddings and are happy to help you figure out what might work best for you! We will also check in periodically to touch base on outstanding design elements like cake flowers or escort card displays, and if you’re working with a planner we will be in contact with them throughout the process.  By the way – we love planners! SO…when you hire a planner, please keep us in the loop! About 2 months before the wedding things really kick into high gear!  Kristin will check in to make sure their haven’t been any major changes to your guest count and see if you need a final details meeting with our owner Cady.  Cady will go over any last minute additions like styling blooms or additional centerpieces before confirming your wedding flowers. You’ll also get a “Final Details” email from Kristin 30 days before where she will confirm logistics for the day, triple check your wedding party numbers (you won’t believe how many times clients add a bridesmaid and forget to tell us!) and tie up any loose ends. In the weeks leading up to the wedding we’ll also be working with your venue and other vendors to schedule timing and generally make sure all the little details are taken care of on our end.

Im Engaged & Looking for a wedding florist!

  Photography by Odessa James Photography – The Meshewa House at Turner Farm – Design by KMC Weddings If you’re here, you’re likely ready and want to reserve Floral V Designs for your big day.  Well lets start out by saying CONGRATULATIONS!! Even if you have your wedding date picked out, you might not be quite ready to dive head first into the design process. It’s important that you give yourself some time to research and get inspired during the early planning process.  Choose your venue, pick out the dresses, start Pinning images that inspire you. Photography by Amanda Donaho On average, most of our clients book with us 6 months to one year out from their wedding date. That said, we have some couples who book more than a year out, and others who reach out 3 months from the big day. But don’t wait to reach out to your top choice vendors. Especially if you’re getting married during peak wedding season( May, June, Sept, Oct), since most are only able to accommodate a few weddings per weekend! Before you reach out, it’s helpful to have your venue selected and booked, since the location determines so many factors of the day (style and color palette, guest count, etc). Planning reception flowers and décor without a venue is like decorating a house you haven’t bought yet. The couch might not fit and the colors could be all wrong! If you’d like to chat flowers before you book your venue, we are happy too!  Just keep in mind that it will be a more general conversation and things might change once you settle on a space.   Photography by Odessa James Photography – The Meshewa House at Turner Farm – Design by KMC Weddings   Once you have your venue, the […]
