When getting married, there’s a lot to learn in little time. I have found that clients share some of the same questions, so I thought this may be a helpful start:
Do I need a coordinator/planner?
A great coordinator will be invaluable to you it is in your budget and we always recommend getting a little help from a professional. We can give you several recommendations if you need some help.
Where are you located?
LB Floral is a wedding/event professional, so like your DJ, Catering or Photographer where we do not have a retail side to our business so we do not have a retail store with set hours. We focus on weddings and events, so we are open when you make an appointment with us for a consultation. Once you have an appointment with us, we will send you detailed directions to our studio.
What are your hours?
See above. 😉
What services do you provide?
Fresh flowers for weddings, events, small parties and sympathy work. We do not do daily deliveries or single arrangements. LB Floral offers vast rentals of floral containers and arches for our clients. We are not a rental company, however, as our items are exclusive to our clients.
How much do flowers cost?
The cost of our flowers and services revolve around several factors but mainly hinges on what YOU want. We factor in size, quantity (i.e. the number of corsages, boutonnieres, etc.), style, and the price of different flower types to build a custom plan for your style and budget. In our express package in 3 tiers that starts at $495
How do I make an appointment?

Do you have a minimum order?
We have an express package that starts at $495 for a complete wedding with preset flower types, quantities and does not include a consultation. For most brides, they opt for a traditional experience of selecting the flower types and styling. The minimum is $1,200 for the floral pieces, in addition to other tax and services.
Are you permitted to be my florist at my venue?
To our knowledge, there is only 1 venue in Knox, Blount, Loudon, Hamblen and Jefferson County that have 1 florist that they use exclusively. Even venues that have in-house florists will allow you to use an outside florist of your choosing if you ask.
Do you deliver?
Yes, we deliver, set up and come back at the end of the night for pick up.
Do you have rentals like vases, arches, lanterns, candelabras, LED candles, urns?
Oh yes, a lot of styles in every color and metallic.
Do you come back to pick up the rentals at the end of the night?
Can I give you my containers to use for my flowers?
Absolutely! Please bring them to your initial consultation so we can evaluate and give you an accurate quote based on size. If you do not have them at that point, we can estimate and then reevaluate at the final review.
Can I do some of my flowers myself?
For several reasons surrounding our business model and customer service goals, we prefer that all flowers are designed and arranged by our team to create a stunning realization of our client’s vision.
What can I expect as a bride?
LB Floral offers a 1-hour free consultation to create your vision and quote. Bring your pictures, Pinterest, and budget. We will try to make suggestions to meet your vision and budget. We require a contract and deposit to book us as your florist. 50% is due 90 days out from the wedding date. We will meet again 30-45 days out from the wedding date to finalize the order where the balance will be due.
Can I pick up my floral order instead of delivery?
Absolutely! It must be the date of the wedding to ensure freshness. We will package the order in an easy to transport box and help you load your vehicle.
How early should I book my florist?
It is best to call a florist as early as possible. Most brides book around 9 months to a year in advance.
We hope this helps and we look forward to working with you on your wedding or event. Call or email for your complimentary consultation today!
