The tradition of wedding flowers runs deep, across cultures, with a range of significance and meaning. Your floral designs can honor these traditions while providing you with an opportunity to showcase your own style and personality.
This page shares how we collaborate with clients to discover a vision and create a design that is right for you. We are excited for the opportunity to be on this journey together, and feel honored to play our part in such an important occasion.
We will send you a questionnaire to start collecting all the details of your wedding. This is also a great time to share any and all visuals that are inspiring to you.
Upon your initial inquiry, we will also begin sharing our Athabold Flowers Wedding Series. These documents are intended to give you new ideas, while providing us with a framework for our conversations as your floral design takes shape.
You don't need to have all the answers just yet. Figuring out the design and the details is an important part of our work together.
We offer a free initial consultation to each of our clients, whether over the phone or an in-person meeting at our studio. Design ideas, budget and an initial estimate will be discussed.
Developing The Proposal
A detailed proposal will be provided within a few days of the initial consultation. To secure the date, you can sign the proposal and put down an initial deposit using our online system. Our services are now yours.
We understand that weddings are planned months (or years) in advance, and a lot of details are still being figured out. We assure you that we will work together to finalize your floral design as the rest of the planning takes shape.
If we haven't yet had the opportunity to meet in person (since many of our clients are located in New York City or other parts of the country), we invite you to join us in the Hudson Valley at Athabold anytime. We can also meet at the venue, and you are very welcome to call or email us with questions along the way.
Final design confirmation
One month before the wedding, we will schedule a phone call or an in-person meeting to review the proposal, go over the day-of logistics and address any final questions. The goal is to make sure you understand everything from the floral designs to our delivery/set-up plans, eliminating any need to worry on the days leading up to your special event.
Your Wedding Day
All flowers for the ceremony and reception will be delivered and set in place. Personal flowers will be delivered to the location you choose. We will work with your venue(s) in advance to understand their set-up and break down policies—and will make sure that everything is taken care of.
AFTER THE WEDDING
Once things have calmed down, we want to hear all about it! We aspire to provide our clients with not only beautiful floral designs, but also an amazing experience.
Our name, Athabold, means “everyone welcome,” and we make it a point to provide a great experience to all who choose to partner with us. It’s important that you feel a true connection with your floral designer—so you can share your ideas, understand our style, and ask any questions you may have.
We recognize you are placing your trust in us, and we are committed to giving your special day the attention it deserves.
