Where are you located? What areas do you deliver to? Are you available to travel?
October- May: During the school year I am located in Augusta, Georgia. I will happily deliver to events in the Augusta Metro Area: Augusta, North Augusta, Evans, Martinez, Grovetown, Hephzibah, Aiken, Appling, Harlem, Thomson and Waynesboro.
I am also able to travel to nearby cities such as Atlanta, Athens, Macon, Greensboro, Lake Oconee, Greenville, Columbia, Savannah and Charleston (additional travel fees will apply).
June – September: In the heat of summer I escape to my family’s lake home near Pelican Rapids, MN. In these months I am available for events in the western MN lakes region (Detroit Lakes, Pelican Rapids, Fergus Falls) as well as the Fargo-Moorhead metro (Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo, Dilworth, Barnesville, Horace, Oxbow)
What is your floral design style?
I describe my style as Garden Inspired. Using art theory and the principles of design, I carefully create bouquets that are balanced and visually appealing while still retaining a natural feeling.
A signature “Rachel Bouquet” has the following elements:
- Multiple types of flowers mixed together
- A variety of shapes, sizes, and textures for depth and visual interest
- Varying shades of color to create a natural looking palette
- A lush, generous size — but not so big that it overpowers the bride
- Greenery to add contrast and finish off the bouquet
Can you recreate a floral design that I found online?
I am happy to use photos from Pinterest, Instagram or other sources as inspiration, but I never copy another designer’s work exactly. That’s because your event is unique! It has never been done before. Your style, your venue, your season, and your budget will all be different than the wedding you found online. So instead of copying, I prefer to customize.
We can work together to identify what you like about the photo — maybe it’s the color palette, the shape of the bouquet, a certain type of flower, or even just the general feeling that the photo communicates. And then I will incorporate that element into a new, custom design that fits you and your event.
How much do wedding flowers cost?
Wedding florals span a wide range of prices. Smaller bouquets with more common flowers will be less expensive, while large arrangements with premium or specialty blooms will cost more. The size of your wedding also matters. The larger your bridal party and guest list, the more bouquets and centerpieces you need, which adds to the cost.
It’s difficult for me to give you exact pricing without having a consultation, but here are some average budget ranges to help you get started:
- Personal Florals Only $300-1000
Bouquets, boutonnieres and corsages but no centerpieces or ceremony decor.
- Small & Simple Weddings $1000-2000
Personal florals plus simple designs for the ceremony and/or reception.
- Classic Weddings $2000-5000
Personal florals, ceremony decor, centerpieces and reception decor for mid-size weddings.
- Upscale Weddings $5000+
Large weddings with lush, premium florals throughout.
