           How long does a meeting last? 

                Our initial  meeting will last approximately one hour. If you are running more than 15 minutes late you may wish to reschedule so that you are ensured a relaxed                  and productive meeting.

                At Allure Floral Design, we begin with your ideas and then create custom design options just for you. We get to know you by listening to your ideas.  
                During your  complimentary consultation you can view our portfolios and select your favorite designs. We will gather pertinent information, exchange ideas,                          discuss colors, flowers and options that will make your wedding a truly unique and wonderful expression of your and your partner.  

                   Do you offer a floral packages?  

                No, we do not work with packages. Our main focus remains to be a custom floral design studio. However, once in a while we have special offers, which you can                    find on our website. 

               Can you email me pricing? 

             You can email us your 'wish list', and we can give you an average prices per arrangement if you provide us the flowers and colors that you like. Cost depends                      heavily on how many flowers are used, how ornate the bouquets or decorations are, the time of the year,  the type of flowers used and whether the are locally                      grown. Simple designs with in-season, local flowers are cheapest while elaborate designs with exotic flowers shipped from far away, are most expensive. There is                      not a 'one-size-fits-all' answers to those questions.  
             For detailed proposal we would recommend you to schedule a meeting. Keep in mind that everything we design and create for you is unique and one-of-a-kind. We                  pride ourselves in working with every client's budget to create the most beautiful floral presentation possible. 


               If the proposal total is more then my budget, can I eliminate some of the items listed? 

                Of course you may. The order must continue to meet our minimum $700.00 requirement unless approved in advance by management. We suggest you discuss                     with us your concern and ask for suggestions to reduce the cost. Your proposal may also list several cost saving ideas that you can adopt. Our staff can help you                  decide what items can be eliminated while still maintaining the same level of design integrity and style. We have compiled decades of solutions to meet all of your                  needs.

                    
What flowers will be available for my wedding?

                If you provide us with email address we can send you a list of sites detailing seasonal availability plus photos in many cases. Try these sites for seasonal lists:

                California Cut Flower Commission

                Florabundance
                You can also check flowers color availability.

                   Do you do anything other then flowers? 

        /    In addition to our floral design, we provide rental items such as: vases, arches, chuppahs, columns, glass or metal containers - really everything that you'll need to                   decor at both the wedding site and the reception. Our selection of resources is extensive and many items are available for either purchase or rental.

                  Can I provide my own vases?   

      Yes. You must provide items that are clean and table ready. We also require that one extra vase be left with us in the unforeseen event of breakage or damage.                     Plus, the extra item can be beneficial if you need to add an extra reception table the week of the wedding. Unclean vases or items will be accessed a fee if the we                   need to prepare your products.
               We can also set up your items if your coordinator or event manager does not provide this service. Our fees will be included with your proposal.  

                  Do you charge for a 'Sample Centerpiece' ?

               Yes, We charge full retail price if you have not yet booked with Allure Floral Design. If you book, as a result of seeing your sample you will receive a credit of                   20‰ of the retail price on your order. 
               If you wish to book your date immediately and see a sample at a later date we offer a 20‰ discount for your sample piece and you enjoy the savings right                       away.   
               Samples will be prepared for your approval. Changes and adjustments can be made until you approve the look. A photograph of the approved sample will be                     placed on your file for reference. You are able to take the sample with you that day. If a rental item is needed to display the piece it may be taken with you                       provided that we have completed credit card authorization form on file. The rental item must be returned to us in good condition within 72 hours in order to avoid                 credit card fee as noted in the rental agreement. 
               This provides a perfect opportunity to take the centerpiece to the reception venue to see how it will work for the wedding. Please note that seasonal availability                   may affect the accuracy of the sample, however, the design concept will remain intact. Keep in mind that some changes you request may affect the cost of the                     piece.

We service: New Jersey, New York,                         Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Delaware. Other areas, if accepted, will incur additional delivery fees.

              Can I pay my bill when the flowers are delivered? 

               No, all weddings and special events orders are to be paid in full a minimum of two weeks prior to the date of the event. In the event that the balance is not paid                   by the deadline date the event will be removed from our schedule and the deposit forfeited. 
           
              When is the balance due? 

              The balance is due, in full, two (2) weeks before the wedding. The "Terms of Agreement" outlines the payment policies.
