As a client you have rights too and we want you to understand the in's and out's of what is required.

Please read through them thoroughly (as below) so you have an understanding too.
Full Wedding Contract Terms + Conditions
Quotes are valid for 30 days.

It is your responsibility to review all event details, including the date, wedding venue, and quantities of items to be delivered.
A booking is confirmed upon a signed copy of these terms + conditions as well as receipt of an initial non-refundable 25% payment.
This initial non-refundable payment is compensation for our work done
to date and is required to secure our services for your date because it precludes us from booking another event on your event date.
This payment will be deducted from the total owing.

payment made remains non-refundable. Moneys paid above and beyond the initial 25% payment will be refunded.
We reserve the right to cancel the contract at any time. In this instance, you are entitled to a full refund (including the initial 25% payment).
Rescheduled & Relocated Events

We will do our best to accommodate new dates or location changes however we cannot guarantee our availability.
If we are unavailable on your new event date, or are unable to accommodate your change of venue, the initial 25% payment made remains non-refundable.
If we are available on your new event date, or able to accommodate your venue change, the initial payment made, will be transferred to the new date. A new contract and quote will be drawn up taking into account the changed circumstances. (For instance, wholesale product prices fluctuate
through the season, delivery and hourly wages vary depending on venue set-up requirements).
We reserve the right to amend or change the pricing outlined in this quote in the event of cost changes beyond our control (e.g. wholesale flower prices).
We will make every effort to honour the original agreed price, however, the
current volatile nature of shipping (national/international)
dramatically affects wholesale flower prices.
Any price increases will be formally advised to you in writing and a
recommendation provided to the client at least 14 days prior to your
Product Substitution & Availability
All flowers and foliage’s are subject to seasonal quality and availability.
Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee availability, exact colours or shades of specific products. When working with Mother Nature, there are no guarantees. Unseasonably warm, wet or cool seasons have a dramatic impact on flower and foliage availability.
Regardless of the availability of specific products, we will always adhere to the
agreed colour palette and style of floral design, as outlined in our
supplied design inspiration (in your quote).
We reserve the right to substitute all products to ensure the highest quality
ingredients are used. If needed, a final consultation can be arranged to
discuss alternative options.
Containers and vases may change due to supplier issues, we will substitute the selected product with items of greater or equal value, in line with the
overall look and feel for the event.
Refunds will not be given for minor changes in flower type or appearance.
