Sharing, sharing, sharing. We’ve based our entire company around it, but what does it look like to share centerpieces between two events? We’re here to give you a behind the scenes look into how sharing flowers from one event to the next happens.
Once a customer goes to our site, he or she plugs in their event location and date and they are given the option to find a florist in their area or opt into available flowers. As an Event A, the customer decides which Bloomerent florist(s) they want to work with and are connected to them directly. They meet with them for a consultation as usual and once they’ve decided they want to book them as their florist, Bloomerent works directly with the florist to list their flowers in our database.
So, you booked your florist and chose your flowers. Now what? Sit back and relax. We, Bloomerent, will list your flowers on our site for another customer (Event B) to opt into. After a match is made through our platform, our florists take the reigns. It is really important to Bloomerent that the traditional florist/customer relationship is not disturbed and that both customers (Event A and Event B) work one-on-one with the same florist.
By opting into these centerpieces, Event B agrees to use the general color scheme and floral selection of Event A’s selection. However, this doesn’t mean you can’t make any changes! Our florists are happy to add a pop of color or a different kind of flower to any repurposed flowers, just make sure you speak to them about it when you’re opting in.
The day of Event A’s wedding or event, our florist drops off and sets up all flowers at his or her venue. After the event, at a previously specified time, your florist returns and picks up the arrangements.
You’ll see from the picture above that the flowers look just as beautiful and new for a second event. Why? Because they are! Flowers have a lifespan of 3-14 days so sharing them between two events will mean your flowers never look wilted or tired.
