*Sliding scale for those on EBT/SNAP & Medicaid. Proof must be provided. Please, reach out to discuss budget & discounts.
Fresh is best! The fresher the flowers, the better they dry. I will always recommend that bouquets be shipped overnight/express the first day possible following the event. *Local drop-off is encouraged.
Hydrate your flowers. When not in use, keep your bouquet in a clean vase of cool water. When able, give the stems a fresh angled cut.
Find someone to help. Ask a friend, family member or bridesmaid to take on the task of boxing & shipping your bouquet so that you can relax in newlywed bliss.
These handy little hydraters can be found on Amazon for a very minimal price! I recommend using them along with the instructions above to ensure your flowers arrive in their very best condition! Even if you only have a handful of tubes, they can be used on the varieties you cherish the most or flowers that may be more sensitive to traveling. Find them here: https://amzn.to/3RZEhXi
Here's a gorgeous example of some delicate blooms from a Saturday wedding that arrived on a Tuesday. Packaged following all instructions & in great shape for successful preservation! Don't skip the stem tubes. Your flowers & I thank you!
A little TLC after a long journey.
It is recommended that out of state florals be shipped overnight. Price for shipment will most likely run $20-$70 depending on weight, size of box & distance. Please let me know if you'd like a quote. Local pick-up / delivery is available to Charleston & the surrounding areas. Travel fees apply. Please let me know if you were referred by & using prefered florist, Roadside Blooms, for your wedding as other accommodations can be made.
Rest well, little pretties.
This takes between 2-4 weeks depending on the method & flower variety. Client will choose between having florals dried (3D), pressed(flat), or a combination of both. Client will receive a dried flower inventory around the 4 week mark at which point any design requests for layout can be made.
The floral finale.
Layout is approved by client before any finishing touches are made. We work together to create the perfect custom keepsake! Afterall, this is YOUR special piece & I want you(& your partner) to absolutely love it! Please be patient as this entire PROCESS WILL TAKE 10-16 WEEKS.**
