I have said it before and I will say it again, flowers are my passion and this passion shines through in each and every design I create. Your wedding is such an unforgettable occasion that finding the right floral designer is a major step in creating the romance of your special day. Here at Dahlia Floral Design you will receive the personal service and attention you need for this most memorable occasion.
Flowers are my passion. I have been in the industry for over 17 years and have worked hard to develop a name for myself and my quality of design work. While I love all aspects of floral design I have chosen to open a private studio that focuses solely on wedding and event flowers. My favorite part of my job is helping an overwhelmed Bride narrow down all her ideas into a stunning array of flowers that will set her day apart. I find beauty in the most humble flower to the most exotic and will utilize them both in ways that surprise and delight.
I know you will be amazed and dazzled by the ambiance of my flowers on the day you say – I Do!
Dahlia Floral Design has created wedding flowers in many of the venues in Calgary, Dewinton, Banff, Canmore, Kananaskis and Cochrane, so I can offer insight into the best way to accent each venue to coordinate with your wedding decor.
Give me a call or email me 6 – 9 months before your wedding date to setup a consultation date and time. If your wedding date is happening sooner rather than later no worries – we can still meet to chat about your ideas. The consultation is complimentary and will take about one hour. Please bring with you any pictures you have or fabric swatches. This will give me a really good idea of the things you like and will be a great starting point for our discussion.
I hold consultations at my residence in NW Calgary. I book consultations typically on the weekends but am certainly flexible to work around your schedule.
After paying your deposit I will email you a copy of the receipt and a very detailed copy of your wedding flowers. This detailed wedding flowers list becomes my new working copy so please take some time after receiving it to read it over very carefully. How it is written is exactly how I will be creating your flowers so ensure that it is correct. Often I will have a series of outstanding questions for you, these do not have to be answered right away but are there more as a reminder of things we still need to discuss. I will email you approximately 6 weeks before your wedding date to start finalizing all the details.
Yes, you sure can. I receive the flowers during the week before the wedding date and I will email/text you pictures as the week progresses up to and including a sneak peek of your bouquet and any of your other flowers.
Once we have discussed everything you are looking for, I will step aside for a few minutes and put together your quote. This way I can present it to you right away and we make alterations as needed. From there I will hold your wedding day open for 2 weeks which gives you plenty of time to talk it over.
To book with us we require a 25 percent non-refundable deposit with the balance due one month before the wedding date. This deposit is often just based upon bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages, as ceremony and reception items may be still undecided. Know that by paying the deposit you are not locked in to everything we discussed. Things only become permanent after we have finalized everything one month before the wedding date, as this is when I place the order for your flowers. I accept Visa and MasterCard over the phone, email money transfers and Cheques (only for the deposit) made out to Dahlia Floral Design.
First I like to look through any of the items you have brought with you to the consultation. This is a great way for me to learn a bit about what you are looking for and also, just as important, what you are NOT looking for. From there I often bring out my various portfolios and we will look through them to see if anything further attracts your attention. By this point I will have noticed trends and styles that you are leaning towards and we will start to choose flowers. This is where I differ from a lot of other designers as I prefer to choose each flower with you – this way you can really visualize the end result.
