flowers facts

 
With the increase in technology, planning an event or wedding is a mouse click away. Although the internet provides an abundance of resources, I have decided to discuss a few common questions and concerns I come across when consulting with a client. Below you can also find a general plant and flower guide to what is available by season.
 
Q: Is Tangled Lotus a full service florist?
A: Tangled Lotus is a floral design company providing full service experience to its clients without the distractions of providing daily floral services. Tangled Lotus specializes in events and weddings, guiding its clients through the entire design process in order to create design cohesion throughout the entire event.
 
Q: Can I use my ceremony flowers after the ceremony is over?
A: Yes. When designing wedding flowers for your ceremony, 
Tangled Lotus is mindful about creating pieces that can be utilized in various areas of reception. 
 
Q: Will I cut my overall floral cost by using succulents?
A: No. Generally, succulents cost equal to or more than a single bloom. Wiring and taping the succulents involve extra labor and time.
 
Q: Besides the wedding party, who else should get flowers?
A: Providing parents, grandparents, and the officiant with a custom piece makes for a kind gesture. 

 

Q: Can flower cost fluctuate?

A: Yes. This can occur anytime. When deciding on a date for an event or wedding, be mindful of holidays that may increase flower cost such as Valentine's Day and Mother's Day.

Q: What flower would you suggest that is inexpensive and come in a varitey of colors?

A: Gerber daisies, carnations, and mums.

 

Q: I love peonies and garden roses but have a limited budget. Where in my event should I utilize them?

A: If ones budget is limited, the best place to splurge on expensive blooms are in your own bouquet.

 

Q: Is garland budget friendly?

A: No. If you wish to stay within a budget, go with what is seasonal and is suggested by the floral designer and be open to all flowers.

Q: What should I do with my wedding flowers after my event?

A: Tangled Lotus suggests donating the pieces to a local hospital.
