Wedding consultations with Persephone Violet are free of charge and with no obligation. Initial consultations are primarily to determine your likes and dislikes and requirements for your big day. The first isn’t always the last as some brides decide to change their mind along the way because of a change in theme or budget. Once we have met and discussed your wedding flowers a quote is produced for the items discussed. This is merely a quotation and isn’t set in stone. We spend one to two hours initially to get a feel for your visions. We suggest that a time and date is chosen that is suitable for meeting at your chosen wedding venue. Meeting at your venue is always useful to visualise what works well and where flowers might be required.
To secure your wedding date Persephone Violet asks for a non-refundable £50.00 deposit to hold your wedding date. The full balance will be required no less than two weeks prior to the wedding date where you will receive a fully itemised final invoice detailing all delivery plans and quantities of items Persephone Violet is providing. Payment is accepted by credit and debit card or BACS transfer. By paying the required £50.00 deposit you are legally bound to abide by our set out terms and conditions.
Wedding order adjustments
Sometimes it is necessary to add a buttonhole or adjust table centre numbers which Persephone Violet is more than happy to accommodate. Unfortunately we cannot allow any changes to your wedding flower order with less than one months’ notice to your wedding date due to advance ordering of your flowers.
Flowers – shades, varieties and availability
Flowers and foliage’s are living, which means due to natural variation sometimes the flowers ordered can be of a slightly different colour or shade to what was originally thought (this is a very rare occurrence). Due to more advanced growing techniques in recent years we have been able to reduce this to a minimum. When in the situation that some of your chosen flowers cannot be sourced we will provide close alternatives which we will ensure you are happy with before proceeding.
Persephone Violet also accepts no responsibility for any allergic reactions caused by flowers provided. We will of course help to advise on floral materials that will reduce the affects of hay fever due to pollen. If you have any worries or queries do let us know and we will be happy to assist.
At Persephone Violet we offer a container hire service for brides and grooms who don’t wish to purchase the containers. Our hire service is extensive so do ask if we have a certain vase or container for hire and we would be sure to find something suitable for you. A small hire deposit is required when hiring out containers. This is returned to you once all the containers are returned in the original condition to Persephone Violet. All items which are not returned are charged for and will be deducted from your hire deposit.
Persephone Violet can deliver your wedding flowers to three different addresses if required. Timings are crucial and will be dictated by you and the time of your ceremony. Last minute changes can be made to the times of delivery and delivery address’s as long as we are made aware.
