    • You want out of season flowers.
    • You cannot source unusual varieties or colours in perishable flowers.
    • You need to take your bouquet to an island wedding because you don’t want to be surprised with a bouquet that doesn’t reflect your style and Customs just doesn’t permit plant material.
    • The temperature will be too high or too low for perishable flowers (generally over 28°C or under 3°C).
    • Your wedding lasts longer than a day or is staged in two different states or countries.
    • An allergy-free bouquet is required.
    • The flowers you want are too fragile to be viable, even at low temperatures (violets, sweet peas, hydrangea and other flowers that may not last without a direct water source).
    • You’re a prop stylist needing heat proof, long-lasting bouquets for movie or theatrical use.
    • You like the convenience of choosing a ‘prêt-a porter’ bouquet with coordinating bridesmaids’ bouquets, corsages, boutonnières and flower girl accessories and having them long before the wedding day.
    • Your wedding will be 'out of town' or ‘out of province’ and you'd like to organize your flowers now and take them with you.
    • You want to keep/display the bouquet forever, exactly how it was on your wedding day.
    • You wish to avoid the expense of bouquet preservation (usually between $150 - $400).
    • You would like to use your bouquet in 25 or 50 years' time for an anniversary party or your renewal of vows ceremony.
    • You would like a large bouquet, but still want it to be lightweight and easy to carry.

    Today’s Permanent Botanicals are truly spectacular and it’s not always easy to tell that they aren’t the real ‘McCoy”. Though ‘silk’ bouquets are not necessarily lower in budget than their fresh counterparts they can surely remedy some tricky wedding dilemmas. Contact us at Flowers & Sense and let our Wedding Consultant design your ultimate Permanent Botanical Wedding Bouquet.

    Flowers & Sense has a large delivery area and can meet the needs of any bride in Ontario.
    For weddings in Barrie delivery is free on the day of the wedding to the location in which the bride is getting ready. We personally present you with your bouquet and assist the attendants in the proper handling and positioning of their bouquets for the ultimate wedding photographs. We also deliver to the Groom and his party at their location and help them pin on boutonnieres. We can supply free delivery and placement of centerpieces at the chosen venue. For weddings outside of Barrie a nominal delivery charge is required and will be outlined in the Wedding Contract. All weddings are delivered well in advance of the ceremony by the wedding designer ensuring good quality control of your flowers. Flowers & Sense provides this service with the Bride and Groom in mind, assuring them of a worry free day.

    Please email or call to schedule an appointment for your initial consultation so your Wedding Consultant can give you the individual attention you deserve. To enable us to best advise you, we recommend you first select your ceremony and reception locations; securing the date and times. We also recommend you bring photos of your gown, the attendants’ gowns and your wedding day venues so styles, textures and colors may be coordinated to give you the most effective visual presentation possible. A meeting at your venue is also possible.
    After the initial conference with your Wedding Consultant, and you have made the deposit listed below, you will receive a copy of your contract, which will specifically outline all flowers, accessories, rentals, and services. We ask you to carefully read the contract and contact us should there be any changes or omissions. Any and all further minor changes can be made up to ten days before your wedding. These changes should be made in person at Flowers & Sense and initialed on the wedding contract. Costs resulting from any changes will be debited/credited to the final total of your order.
    Flowers & Sense requires a non-returnable retainer of 30 % of your wedding contract to reserve a specific date and time for your wedding. This fee will be credited to the final total balance due of your wedding flowers. Certain types of rental equipment may require additional refundable deposits, which will be outlined to you at the time of your initial conference.
    The final balance of your wedding (reflecting the credit of your initial deposit) is to be paid in full no less than ten calendar days prior to your wedding date by cash or credit card.
    Contact us to schedule your appointment.
