Wedding and Event Flower Info
***We are currently almost fully booked with d.y.i. weddings for the 2020 Season***
Some of the Reasons Brides Choose Our Flowers:
~They want a natural look for their wedding
~They are passionate about using naturally and/or locally grown flowers
~Individual creativity and style
~We have beautiful flowers!
Brides Who Choose Our Flowers Are Generally:
~Do not need an exact color or style.
Important Information About Locally Grown Flowers:
~Although many flowers are pretty consistent, Mother Nature governs what blooms when.
~Every year, some varieties do better than others. It is part of the natural growing cycle.
~Schedule as soon as possible. We schedule our weddings on a first-come basis. Your wedding or event is not scheduled until we have made sure the date is available and you have placed a deposit of $50.00. Please use our Request to Hold Date Form.
~You may request a date and time to walk the fields and place a cutting order prior to your pick up date. We recommend the Monday or Tuesday before.
~Some flowers hold in a vase longer than others. Most, but not all, of our flowers have a vase life of 5 or more days. Select your flowers accordingly.
~Purchase a bit more than you think you will need. Stems break, get cut too short, etc.
~We fill our cutting orders on a first-come basis. (For example, if we have 2 weddings booked for your day, the couple who gets their cutting order in first will have first choice of flower selection).
You can change your cutting order up to 48 hours prior to your scheduled pick-up date and time, as long as the flowers are available.
Picking Up Your Order:
~Your flowers will be grouped by variety, generally in 10 stem bunches.
~Your flowers will have floral food in the water. We will send extra floral food with you.
~You must bring sparkling clean buckets for the ride home. Bring more than you think you will need. As a very general rule, 40-50 stems will fit into a bucket. A mix of 2 gallon buckets for flowers such as dahlias and lisianthus, and 5 gallon buckets for flowers such as sunflowers and amaranth work well. We can supply buckets if absolutely necessary - $5.00 each for floral buckets, $8.00 each for 5 gallon buckets.
~You can change your time and date to pick flowers up to 48 hours prior to your scheduled appointment as long as we have the desired time slot available. We understand this is a busy time and we will be as flexible as possible. Please understand if you are more than 15 minutes late for your scheduled pick up or cut order appointment, we may have to reschedule.
~Always keep your flowers cool and hydrated.
Some Other Notes:
~ We can order flowers for you that we do not grow, or are sold out of from our wholesaler. Pricing is different and these orders must be paid for in advance. Please inquire.
~We are not a greenhouse or a florist. Our flowers are available only in season.
~Your deposit to hold your flowers covers a bit of our time and expense. It does not go towards the final purchase of your flower order.
~We do not do floral arranging, but can recommend designers and florists who do.
~Final payment is due when you come to pick up your order. We accept cash or checks made out to Michigan Flower Farm. We do accept credit cards via Paypal with an additional 3% processing fee.
~We do not deliver or ship flowers.
