We know how overwhelming wedding planning (and searching for a wedding planner!) can be. Our goal is to help you feel completely comfortable and supported in your decision to work with us.
Take a look at our most commonly-asked questions below!
1. WHAT IS FLEUR AVENUE'S STYLE?
Whether we’re handling florals or working on a comprehensive event design, we strive to spark interest and evoke emotion so people not only remember what they saw at your event, but how they felt. We also seek to create events that are infused with your personality — while adding elements to create the ‘Wow!’ factor. We want to pique curiosity, but never in an overstated or overpowering manner. To us, the purpose of design is to complement your personal style and the aesthetics of the venue you chose for your celebration. Every design is truly and completely unique!
2. WHEN IS THE BEST TIME TO HIRE A WEDDING PLANNER?
We recommend hiring your planner at least 12-18 months before your desired wedding date. This will allow you to build a relationship with your planner, and makes for the most stress-free process.
3. DO YOU OFFER BOTH WEDDING PLANNING and FLORAL DESIGN?
Yes, absolutely! We offer custom packages that include both wedding planning and floral design to offer the most comprehensive, streamlined coordination experience.
4. I'M ONLY LOOKING FOR A DAY-OF COORDINATOR... IS THAT SOMETHING YOU OFFER?
Fleur Avenue does not provide only day-of coordination services at this time, however we do offer day-of coordination as an add-on to our other packages. Click here to inquire!
5. DO YOU PROVIDE EQUIPMENT AND DECOR RENTALS?
From classic gold taper candle holders to modern decor pieces from CB2 and West Elm, we offer our clients exclusive access to a striking inventory of curated tabletop decor. We’d be happy to share more during your consultation.
6. WE DON'T HAVE A VENUE OR A WEDDING DATE YET... CAN WE STILL WORK WITH YOU?
Yes, definitely. You can find the list of our favorite venues in Virginia and DC here, and if you’d like to explore venues beyond that list, we’d be more than happy to help you with your search.
7. WE'VE ALREADY BOOKED A VENUE AND A COUPLE OF OTHER VENDORS, SO WE DON'T REALLY NEED FULL PLANNING. CAN WE STILL WORK WITH YOU TO HELP PULL TOGETHER OUR VISION?
Yes! Our wedding planning and design services are completely customizable, and include as much or as little support as you need. We’re passionate about event and floral design, and we’d love to hear about what you have in mind for your wedding. Click here to fill out our short contact form, and we’ll chat about your big vision and design ideas!
8. OUR EXPECTED GUEST COUNT IS ON THE SMALLER SIDE - UNDER 50. DO YOU HELP WITH INTIMATE CELEBRATIONS?
Yes, we do! We love intimate weddings and we have a specific service dedicated to those smaller celebrations. We love to create truly personal events full of thoughtful detail, no matter the size of the event. Click here to inquire about working with us.
9. WHAT'S ONE THING YOU WISH BRIDES-TO-BE KNEW BEFORE THEY STARTED PLANNING THEIR WEDDING?
While countless hours are spent trying to pull together an amazing and meaningful wedding day, the day itself flies by very fast. Our best piece of advice is to enjoy every little moment of it and focus on what is truly important: each other and your people! Make sure you take the time to look around and see how happy they are to celebrate your union.
10. WHAT IS YOUR COVID-19 POLICY?
The safety of our clients, our staff, and our vendor team is our top priority. However, we also understand that your wedding investment is significant, and our goal is to protect and minimize your financial exposure as much as we can. We always include an Event Cancellation and Postponement Policy in our Service Agreement, and we’d be happy to provide this Agreement to you prior to booking. Also, as part of our planning service, we’ll review all of your vendor contracts to ensure that you’re completely protected on all fronts. Should you have more questions about how we’re navigating COVID-19 events, please don’t hesitate to contact us here.
