Frequently Asked Questions
How do I send my flowers to you?
Please keep your fresh flowers in water up until the time you send them, don't send any later than 3 days after your special day, this is to ensure I get them in prime condition.
Once you've booked, you'll receive your booking confirmation through email along with a step by step guide on how to pack and post your flowers to me.
How long will my order take?
Once I receive your flowers they'll be sorted and treated (if needed), then they'll go through the drying process, this can take up to 3 weeks, this is when the remaining balance is invoiced. Depending on the size of your order it can then take an additional 8+ weeks to make. Please expect up to 18 weeks, orders are usually finalised by the 10-12 week mark, during busy summer months this can increase. I will try and get orders done sooner where possible. You'll receive updates once your flowers are dry, when I start your order and once your order is finished. Please note that orders will not commence until full invoice is paid, once your flowers are dried they're then stored safely until it's time for your order to be made, I work in date order.
Does the preservation process affect my flowers?
When flowers are dried sometimes the colour of the flowers can change, lighter flowers like white and light pink can dry with a beige hue/bruise, brighter flowers will keep their colour well, and darker flowers like red and purple can dry with darker tones. Some Flowers may not keep their shape very well, for example, David Austin Roses usually dry with a more rounded centre with petal pressed against the edges, peonies can dry slightly smaller and flatter. Please note, every effort is made to keep the original shape and colour however some flowers can be unpredictable during the drying stage.
Can any flowers be used?
Not all flowers preserve/dry well. Flowers that hold a lot of moisture like Tulips, Lily's, Daffodils, Crocuses and Irises do take longer to dry and aren't always suitable for preservation. Succulents don't dry well at all, if they're a feature in your arrangement, I can replace them with artificial ones. If you could let me know what flowers you'll want preserving upon booking. I can preserve air dried and artificial, some artificial flowers are dyed to create a more vibrant colour, if your artificial flowers are dyed this can cause the dye to run within the resin, creating fluid lines throughout the piece or turning the resin the colour of the dye.
I don't always dry all of your flowers, I will pick the ones in the best condition to cover your full order. If you have large flowers in your arrangement could you please let me know within your order details as these may not be suitable for certain preservation options.
How do I care for my resin/framed order?
Top flower preservation care tips leaflet is added to each order, these outline the main care tips to ensure your order is kept well. Dried flowers fade quickly in sunlight/extreme heat, resin can also yellow in direct sunlight, please keep this in mind.
How much is delivery?
When sending your flowers to me, you'll be required to cover the cost. Once I receive your flowers, they'll be put to dry, once they're dry, this is when the remaining balance is due. The cost of delivery to send your order back to you will be added to the overall order total. Postage is £5- £10 depending on the size/weight of your order, I post office, tracked, for delivery. If your order hasn't arrived, please note that I have to wait 30 days before I can open a case.
Can I get a refund/return?
Due to the handmade nature of the products I do not offer refunds/returns or exchanges. If your wedding/special occasion date has been changed I can reschedule your date at no extra cost if your deposit has already been paid. If your wedding/special occasion date has been cancelled, your deposit is non refundable. If you've already sent your flowers and you cancel your order, I cannot return them to you. Spare flowers can only be returned if you're collecting your order, I cannot send these back to you in the post.
Every piece has been lovingly handmade, due to this handmade nature there may be some imperfections, these could be dust, uneven edging, micro-cavities/bubbles, or layer lines.
If your flowers go missing, or arrive damaged, I cannot be held accountable.
