What can I expect at the initial consultation?
During your initial consultation, you will meet with Lindsay (the owner) to discuss your big day. She will guide you through design ideas, flower options, colors, and pricing.
Come prepared with your own color ideas, inspiration pictures, and other details that will help illustrate the style of the wedding. Lindsay will also have portfolios to give you additional inspiration.
You can also share your Pinterest boards with us @bellaflorawed, or email us pictures.
