Here are the most common questions in our Q&A

Are some flowers only available during some month of the year?

Yes, we are at the mercy of Mother Nature and weather conditions have a significant impact on availability of flowers. 

For example, Peonies are only available for a few weeks in mid-Spring (most often November), but the specific availability often changes from year to year, depending on how cold the winter has been and how wet the early weeks of spring are.

 

Do you offer wedding packages?

Yep! We offer an amazing solution to save you time and money. 

We are currently updating our homepage with the packages we offer and a few other things. They should be live very soon.

If you are interested in a wedding package, please contact us via email thebloomerie.waiheke@gmail.com and we email you the options.  

Will you deliver my flowers on the day?

Absolutely, we’ll deliver all your flowers personally. We’ll coordinate the time and location with you during the planning process.

Wedding Decorations

Do you offer hire items, or do I need to supply my own vases?

We do offer a range of hire items – vases, ceremony archway and various styles of candleholders.

If you are looking for a long list of hire items, we recommend contacting the team at The Island Collection or My Waiheke.

 

How much do wedding flowers usually cost?

There is a lot of variability when it comes to wedding flower prices. Most of our couples spend between $3000 – $7500 on their wedding flowers.

We suggest 10-15% of your total wedding budget but if you want florals to be a significant component of the experience for the day, we recommend allocating closer to 25-30% of your total budget to flowers.

Is there a minimum budget or spend?

We do not have a minimum spend although most of our couples spend $3000-$7500 on flowers.

Do I need a theme or a vision for my day?

No, not at all.

We do suggest though that you do a little research about the types of flowers and designs you like – everyone’s tastes are different and there are hundreds of options when it comes to wedding flower design. Even one or two inspiration photos can point us all in the right direction, we pride ourselves on our expertise and producing beautiful work so you don’t need to have thought through every detail. We’ve managed more than 100 weddings and know our local venues incredibly well. We’re always happy to provide suggestions and options for ceremony and reception styling ideas as well.

 

Where are you located?

Our design team is based in 114 Ocean View Road, Oneroa, Waiheke Island. We would love to meet you if you are in the area!

We coordinate flowers for couples getting married mainly on Waiheke Island but can consider venues in the wider Auckland region.

I live overseas. Is that a problem?

No, not at all. We manage all our communication online – if you’re overseas we can easily coordinate over Zoom or manage everything over email.
