To get started on your wedding inquiry, please fill out the questionnaire below. If the Blooms team is available for your wedding date, we’ll move forward with scheduling a consultation. If not, we’ll forward to you a list of other Madison-area florists we highly recommend!
Although our favorite way to meet you is at our shop, face to face, we recommend all consultations take place via Facetime/Skype, phone call or e-mail until further notice.
Before arriving, we recommend you create a Pinterest page to share with our team. Then, in the consultation, we’ll discuss colors, photos, wedding style and a list of floral needs/wants. We’ll also discuss each floral item in detail. Here are a list of topics you can expect to cover:
- Wedding Couples Flowers: bouquet, toss bouquet, hair flowers and boutonnieres
- Wedding Party Flowers: bouquets, boutonnieres, corsages, flower crowns, and loose petals
- Rehearsal Dinner Flowers: arrangements, boutonnieres, corsages, loose flowers
- Ceremony Decorations: aisle flowers, arches, accent arrangements, traditional and religious decorations, on-site design, rentals
- Reception Flowers: cocktail tables, guest tables, head table, card/gift/guest book table, reusable arrangements from the ceremony, rental options, on-site design, loose greens, cake flowers
Afterward, Blooms will send a proposal for your event with pricing and floral suggestions. If we didn’t get it perfect the first time around, we are happy to re-work your ideas and budget! Hopefully at this point, we’ve won you over with our charm and ideas (; which means it’s time to book us for your day!
As soon as you confirm your interest, the date is immediately held! Our wedding retainer totals 20% of your estimated floral budget, and the balance will be due three weeks prior to the wedding. Edits can be made up up to one month prior to your event. At Blooms, we’re dedicated to accommodating changes to the best of our ability. Therefore, we’ll meet with you for future consultations as needed at no additional cost.

What kind of rental items do you carry?

It’s important for me to stay within budget. What are my options?
We’re happy to work within a set budget and will use our knowledge to set honest & realistic expectations for your event. Often, we’ll work with you to prioritize a few key elements to make the biggest impact. Otherwise, we can work to integrate your vision more subtly into all parts of the day.
I’m trying to achieve a very specific color palette. What are my options?
Paint and hardware stores carry hundreds of free sample chips to pair for an easy and accurate example. Your bridal salon may also provide fabric and color samples for a small fee. Just be sure to have enough to hand out to your various vendors! These options are much easier than trying to describe the particular blush hue that has caught your eye.
I am just starting the planning process. How far in advance should I book my wedding flowers?
Every week can be a little different, but prime wedding weekends are usually late May through October. As long as we are available, we’ve worked with couples with as little as two weeks’ notice. Still, we recommend reaching out a year to six months in advance. If you love our work, we can book your date with a deposit and work on details when your schedule allows.
I have my heart set on a certain bouquet. How can I find out if the flowers are available for my wedding?
There are a wide variety of flowers that have year-round availability. However some flowers, like peonies, are more limited in availability –Although growers are continuously working on extending the seasons! Send us a picture of your inspiration bouquet, and we can let you know what will be available. While certain flowers may not be available on your wedding date, we can suggest flowers that will give you a similar texture or color!
What is your delivery area?
Each wedding is unique, but on average, we travel about 60 miles from the Madison area. We are happy to deliver to Wisconsin Dells, Janesville and Milwaukee, as well as many other amazing wedding venues in the Central-Wisconsin area. Delivery for 2 timed locations (ceremony & reception) with setup begins at $100 for the Madison area. Pickup is always available and free!
Can you help me do my own flowers?
Blooms offers bulk flowers for the do-it-yourself bride and assistance is available! Our designers charge between $40 & $80 per hour (not including flowers) to help with design or answer questions. When placing a bulk order, we offer a 20-minute consult free-of-charge, if needed.
