What to Expect
As an artist, I understand your flowers hold sentimental value, which is why I can only accept so many bouquets at one time. Please know and understand that your bouquets are handled with the upmost care throughout the entire preservation process! Once I receive your flowers, my turn around time is 8 to 18 weeks.
There is a $50 nonrefundable deposit required to book during the 2023 Wedding Season. This can be sent via Venmo or can also be invoiced to you via email after your purchase along with a purchase agreement. This deposit is applied towards the cost of materials needed to complete your design as well as reserving and keeping your spot on my calendar. Due to the shortage in supply of resin and materials, this fee is non-negotiable and nonrefundable. Should you have a wedding cancellation or need to re-schedule, please email us at email@example.com. Your deposit can be sent to your artist directly, @sarasikra via Venmo.
You can expect color changes on most of your flowers. Some flowers dry with a darker hue. (For example red flowers get darker and white roses turn ivory, hot-pink flowers turn purple, hydrangeas normally don't retain their shape, and some flowers show translucent spots on the petals due to bruising and exposure.
Due to the nature of resin, some flowers produce more bubbles than others, and small pockets of air may be formed. We use state-of-the-art casting resins that have UV inhibitors in them that will delay the change in color, however, all epoxy will eventually yellow to some degree. A yellow amber-look can be expected. We do not recommend that you leave your item in direct sunlight as this will cause discoloration.
Book with us as soon as you know the date of your event or service! The non-refundable deposit must be paid to reserve your date. (This fee is currently being waved through 2022!) You will receive a confirmation contract along with packaging/postage instructions through e-mail once you have booked your wedding date. A video link can be provided for those who wish to discuss their design in detail upon request.
Shipping to Beautiful Blooms Arizona
I like to receive your bouquet between 1 and 3 days after your wedding! If local to Arizona, same day is always preferred! We are also available for event pickup if local to Arizona. If this does not work, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to help us find you a solution at an affordable cost! Buyer is responsible for the cost of shipping bouquet to us.
When we receive the flowers, we will document the condition and preserve all flowers either pressed, hung, or buried in silica gel based on flower type & artwork you are purchasing. Drying time varies and can take up to 8 weeks.
We can meet virtually to discuss specific designs. A video link will be emailed to you for the date and time that works best for you.
I will contact you the week of the wedding or other event to coordinate drop-off and will contact you once your order is ready for pickup or when it is ready to be shipped out to you.
