Frequently Asked Questions
How quickly do you need the flowers ?
The fresher the flowers, the better the outcome will be. The best situation is 1-4 days after the wedding/event and the flowers should refrigerated (not in freezer) until they are brought to me or shipped. (See shipping instructions if needed)
Where do I keep the flowers until I see you ?
In the refrigerater upright in a vase is the best option. Never put the flowers in a freezer. This will ruin them.
How long will it take to preserve my wedding flowers ?
From start to finish, 4 months. If you live out of town, we will make every effort to see you for a layout and design meeting when you come visit or we will help you with choices via online.
What is a layout and design meeting ?
This is a meeting held about 60-75 days after your wedding. You will select a frame, background and decide what to include in your flower keepsake. This usually happens in our Roswell office. For your convenience, we take appointments on weekends as well as during the week. You can include a picture, ribbons and invitation along with anything else that is fairly flat.
How much does it cost to preserve my flowers ?
Partial bouquet framed pieces begin at $195.00 and full bouquets average $395.00-$450.00 based on the size of the bouquet and the frame that you choose. We have a large selection of materials and frames.
How long will the flowers last ?
Based on where you hang it in your home and how fresh the flowers are when we begin the process, Forever Flower Bouquets will do everything to ensure your bouquet will last a lifetime. We do not encourage you to expose this piece to direct sunlight or humid bathroom conditions.
Will my bouquet look the same when it is dried ?
You cannot expect the flowers to look exactly the same. When necessary, the flowers are treated with tempura chalks and other techniques to enhance their colors. Reds go darker and whites go to an ivory tone. This piece of artwork will be a memory that you will cherish forever.
How much does it cost to ship the flowers ?
Using overnite Priority UPS or FEDEX, you can anticipate approximately $50-$75, based on where you are in the United States.
Shipping your bouquet.
If you are not within driving distance of our shop in Roswell, GA, it will be necessary for you to ship your wedding flowers overnite. The bouquet should be stored in the refrigerator upright until shipping within 3-6 days of your wedding.
Time is not your friend so we would strongly recommend Priority shipping with FedEx, which delivers the flowers by 10 am the next morning or UPS that also does a very good job of delivering before noon.
Donot put water on your flowers. Wrap a paper towel around the flowers and place in a box slightly bigger than the bouquet. Use crushed newspapers and packing peanuts to fill the box. If you have a blue frozen ice pack, this can be taped to the base of the flowers to keep the box cool. The key is to stabilize the bouquet so it will not shift in route to our studio.
Do not indicate that I must sign for the package when it is delivered. It is very easy to miss these drivers.
