Receive your DIY Flower Kit
Your pick-up date is 2-3 days BEFORE your event. (So, a Wednesday pick=up for a Saturday wedding is what we recommend.). We do this to allow ample time for your flowers to open and to give you 2 whole days to knock out your designs. Yes, you can certainly pick-up 2 days before your event but just want you to look at the timeline we provide to make sure you have ample help to knock everything out in two days. If you choose for us to overnight your flowers via FedEx to an address in Colorado, the same time frame applies.

When should I order flowers for my wedding?
We find that most brides prefer to bock their DIY wedding flower orders three to six months in advance of their wedding date. Order your flowers as soon as you feel confident with your selection. An earlier placed order ensures that everything goes smoothly.
Ordering last-minute increases the chance of floral substitutes when sourcing high-demand flowers.
We can still help if your delivery date is less than 14 business days away and you need to place a last-minute order. Please contact us to check availability at email@example.com.
How long does it take to DIY my flowers?
Your first arrangement can take up to 30 minutes with each arrangement becoming easier and easier. Our couples usually grab their family and friends to help and have an "arranging party." The average total time arranging flowers takes about 4-6 hours depending on your wedding party size and guest count.
How much is shipping? Where do you ship?
We ship only within Colorado. Our minimum order is $250 to qualify for shipping and shipping is an additional cost.
How do I receive my DIY kit?
If you live in proximity to Colorado Springs, Denver or Golden, you will pick up your flowers.
Your flowers will be wrapped and packed tightly in a box (we pack it tight to avoid shifting). You will receive between 1-5 boxes depending on your order size.
What do I do with the flowers when they arrive?
We provide full instructions on how to prep your flowers, store your flowers and design your flowers. Once you place an order with us we will send you a welcome email with all these details. Once you review if you still feel lost reach out to us. We have actual florist that answer all your questions.
What if I am having a destination wedding in Colorado can we buy a kit?
YES! You can pick-up Wednesday-Friday in Denver or Golden. The other option is to ship to your Colorado destination as long as you have someone at the address available to sign for the package(s).
How soon before my wedding should I have my flowers delivered?
DIY wedding flowers should be picked up or received 2-3 days before your wedding or event date. For example, if your wedding is on a Saturday, it is ideal for you to receive your flowers Wednesday or Thursday. This will give you plenty of time to arrange and for the flowers to fully open.
How do I keep my flowers fresh?
We work with the world's best flower suppliers. When you receive your flowers they will be thirsty, you should cut the stems at a 45 degree angle and fully submerge the stems in water. Flowers only require room temperature water and do not need to be refrigerated. We provide more detailed instructions in our welcome packet.
