F A Q
Frequently Asked Questions
How far in advance should I hire Charlotte Wedding Flowers?
We say a good rule of thumb is no less than six months from the date of service, however, we are currently booking events more than a year in advance. Our advice is to book your preferred vendors as soon as possible.
What is the process for booking your services?
Go to our service page and select a service that best suits your need. Complete the appropriate form and wait for us to reach you. Once we receive your inquiry, the next step is a complimentary phone/zoom consultation to discuss your floral needs, budget, and general design. From there we create a tailored quote. If everything aligns with both client and designer, we move forward with a contract and deposit and welcome you into the CWF family!
How do I know if we’re a good fit?
We try not to limit ourselves to a particular style, instead our focus is on a personal fit. Our dream client loves design and loves our work. They are open to new ideas and would like to let their thoughtfully selected vendors take the reins on the planning and execution of their event, because they trust their artistry. Our most-loved clients are responsive, honest and genuinely want to have a partnership with the professionals they hire.
Does your studio travel?
Absolutely! We love to travel and make your vision come true. Subject to additional travel fees.

Do you have a minimum order requirement?

What happens after I receive my quote?
After you receive your formal proposal, your signed contract and a deposit (towards your final event cost) is due within 3 days. Your final payment is due 30 days before your event.
What rental items do you offer?
We are pleased to offer a wide variety of rental items that we can include in your event’s floral design plan if you wish. Please checkout our rental page for further details. We do not rent out our inventory unless you are a floral and/or styling client.

Charlotte Wedding Flowers is a “by appointment” studio and focuses on weddings, events, and styling shoots. We do have a retail storefront located on 3010 Monroe Road Suite 203 Charlotte NC 28205. If you are unsure of whether we can meet your needs, do not hesitate to head over to our contact page
When can I expect to hear back from you?
It typically takes us about 3-5 business days to respond to emails.
Are there other things I should get done before setting up an appointment?
Yes. Please have your ceremony site, reception venue, caterer, cake, wedding attire and expected table count pinned down first. We’ll need all these details to make your flower vision come to life. We’ll also need to know if the venue has any rules and restrictions for décor.
What if CWF already has other events on my date?
We’d love to be your wedding florist. If you chose to work with us, a signed contract and retainer will secure your date. We only take up to 3 events on any given day to make sure each one gets the specialized attention it deserves.
Do you offer Set-Up and Post Event Pick-Up services?
Set-Up and Post Event Pick-Up Set up and pick up charges vary from event to event. Prices are determined according to time of day, distance, waiting period, numbers of pieces to pick up and ease of access.
