Here is a list of floral design and decor questions we are frequently asked as a wedding florist.
What is the best way to reach JHM Event Group about my wedding or event?
Our preferred contact method is through our websites contact page. The website allows us to keep things highly organized and create an initial inquiry to help build the best experience possible.
How far in advance should I book JHM Event Group for my wedding or event?
Typically we suggest that our clients book 9-12 months in advance to ensure availability. We also encourage this to allow enough time for design sessions and planning. Depending on your event location and size, we may accommodate short notice events as well.
I have no idea what I want. Can you help me with ideas and designs?
Not a problem! During our consultation we will go over your likes and dislikes, color swatches, theme, location etc. This helps us get to know you a little better and enables us to provide the best style advice. Once you decide to book our studio for your event, we will work together to polish and curate a style board that reflects your overall theme and style.
Do you have a minimum for weddings or events?
We work closely with our clients to meet their needs and wants while working within their budget. That being said, we do not have a minimum but find that clients typically spend $2,500 on average for a small/medium sized wedding. .
Can you provide samples of my wedding/event florals? Do you charge for them?
Yes, we are able to provide centerpiece samples to our clients upon request. All sample work is subject to the cost of floral plus a $100.00 service charge. For example, if you wish you see a sample bouquet that costs $75.00 it will cost you a total of $175.00 for the sample session. You will also be able to keep the florals after our session.
In many instances, we provide complimentary samples for our clients which will be disclosed in our initial client proposal.
When are you available for consultations and where do they take place?
We are available for consultations Monday-Wednesday between 2pm-8pm. The weekends are difficult for us as we are out producing, shooting, and creating floral for weddings and events. Because our clients are coming from a variety of locations we often meet at a local coffee shop or cafe. Consultations can also take place in our Whitehall, PA studio or via FaceTime or Skype if needed. Please contact us directly via our website contact page.
What should I bring with me to my consultation?
Please bring any inspo you are using for the wedding! We want to see photos, screenshots, Pinterest boards, color swatches, gowns, anything you feel is relevant to your wedding day or event. We suggest creating a Pinterest page where you can hold all of your ideas in one location. Some of our clients have personal touches or family heirlooms they wish to see at their events, so feel free to bring those along too.
Do you do weddings/events outside of the local area?
Of course! We are able to accommodate any location and will travel for your wedding or event.
Do you provide any other services or products, such as linens, chair covers, chairs, etc.?
Yes! We offer photography services, Photo booth, award winning event planning, Chiavari chair rentals, chair cover rentals, linens, napkins, and a wide array of premium event rentals too.
We also would be happy to customize and order any specialty items that we may not have available at this time.
What forms of payment do you accept for weddings or events?
Currently we accept credit card, check, PayPal, Venmo, or cash. Once a proposal is created and agreed upon, we require a 25% deposit to secure your date and the remaining balance is due 30 days prior to the wedding. If you require a different payment schedule, all you need to do it ask!
