We provide free consultations by appointment at our studio near Dulles Town Center in Sterling, Virginia. After an appointment is scheduled, you will meet with our Lead Designer, Kathleen Hoxie, and have the opportunity to browse through our portfolio of wedding designs and to examine many illustrations of bridal flowers in our extensive library. Consultations generally take from one to two hours. Please bring to the appointment pictures of designs you especially like and fabric swatches or pictures of your wedding and bridesmaids' gowns. It is sometimes helpful to bring a relative or member of the Bridal Party with you to the consultation.
Within three days after the meeting, you will be emailed a line item pricing estimate for each wedding design. When you select Blooming Spaces as your florist, a contract will be sent to you incorporating all the details of your requirement. Due to limited availability of dates during Wedding Season, we do require a minimum nonrefundable $300 deposit payable with the return of the signed contract. You will be able to make changes to your flower order up to 3 weeks before the wedding. Final payment must be received not later than 10 days before the event. Blooming Spaces accepts cash, personal checks, Visa, Mastercard, and Discover.
