FAQ

Why should I hire Flower Child Weddings?

At Flower Child Weddings we take a different approach to the event planning process. For us, it is not just about sitting down with you and a check list and having you choose vendors, colors, décor items, etc and then executing that. Yes of course those items get handled, but what is important to us is how the actual planning time goes. We are committed that this time be the best, most fun, exciting, and peaceful time for you, your partner, and your involved family and friends. We encourage you to deepen relationships and relish in this kick off to the next chapter in your life. We do not allow for destroyed relationships, bad attitudes, massive wedding debts, or tears (unless tears of joy!). We are designers and scavengers and we assure that our services will pay for themselves because of the massive amounts of time, money, and sanity we promise to save you! And, if we get to continue a friendship with you post wedding, well that is the cherry on top for us!

Why should I hire a wedding coordinator?

There is a large amount of logistical planning and management that is required to assure that you and your guests are taken care of on the special day and the months leading up to it!
