New, past and future Bloomerent brides and grooms,
You asked, and as always, we listened. You wanted to change the things that frustrated you about the current customer-to-florist booking relationship to create a better one. We kept everything you love about Bloomerent and added everything you felt was missing when we created our latest product: Bundles.
Bundles by Bloomerent allows couples to purchase wedding flowers from florists in bundles, based off of their budget and needs, to make buying flowers quicker, easier and more transparent. We turned a months-long process into one that takes minutes.
You asked us to fix two problems:
Transparency. Like any good relationship, you wanted the one with your florist to be upfront and transparent before diving in. You wanted to know how much it would cost to buy flowers from your chosen florists right away, which is nearly impossible for a florist to know without more information since it’s dependent on so many factors. We turned the nearly impossible into the immediately possible by working with florists to put a price tag on the most popular and requested flowers for your wedding. Based on flower types and the season of your wedding, Bundles by Bloomerent gives you upfront and transparent pricing on everything from low centerpieces filled with in-season flowers to tall, lush centerpieces filled with peonies and orchids. Cancel those weekend meetings with multiple florists to get proposals for comparison and buy your flowers in minutes instead of months.
Budget. It’s no secret that we are huge advocates for our florists and how much time, effort and money goes into your florists bringing your vision to life. Sometimes couples have strict budgets that unfortunately cannot be accommodated by florists because it is too low, while other times, they just aren’t sure what a realistic budget should be for their needs. Enter Bundles. We worked with florists to create three separate bundles for couples with different budgets and needs. This lets both customers and florists efficiently expedite the process of purchasing wedding flowers and making sure, in minutes, that you’re a great fit to work together. Each bundle tier has different florists who can accommodate the amount of flowers necessary for the price.
We answered the most frequently asked questions you had about Bundles:
How does this work?
Couples can choose to purchase their flowers by the bundle based on their needs (amount of flowers needed — centerpieces, bouquets, boutonnieres, whether they want seasonal flowers or premium since the cost will be different, whether they want high or low centerpieces, etc.). This allows couples to get a set price upfront that is transparent and gives the florist all of the information necessary to begin customizing flowers with the couple once they’ve purchased the bundle which means they’ve booked a florist that we will match them with.
How is my bundle price calculated?
We worked with our florists to better understand how they calculated pricing for their customers. By doing so, we were able to land on the best price for flowers (e.g., low centerpieces with in-season flowers versus high centerpieces with in-season flowers), while offering special upgrades to couples who have more specific needs (e.g., high centerpieces with out-of-season flowers and garlands). Our goal was to make sure couples get transparent pricing upfront without having to compare multiple proposals from florists, making Bundles a win/win for couples and florists.
Can the price go up after I purchase my bundle?
When you check out, you pay an upfront 50% deposit of your order to guarantee your florist for the day of your event. Your florist will reach out to you to finalize any style decisions. If you make changes or want more than what your bundle offers, any adjustments will be added to your final payment (due one month before your wedding). If you work with your florist to stay within the means of your purchased bundle and add-ons, the price will not go up.
What happens if I purchase a bundle then change my mind after speaking to my florist?
If you change your mind within two business days after purchasing your bundle, let us know and we will refund you or find you a new florist – whichever you prefer. We encourage you to speak to your florist as soon as they reach out to begin collaborating so that you’re able to let us know if you’re unhappy right away.
Is labor and delivery included in my bundle price?
Yes. All of our bundles include labor and delivery to fairly compensate our florists for their time and labor. At checkout, you will see a breakdown of your bundle and costs. Unless you make any additions between checkout and your wedding day, this will be the final price.
Can I choose my florist?
At the moment, we’ll match you with your florist. To see which florists we work with, check out the Our Florists page here or head to Bloomerent to view their profiles. We’re working on making this process as seamless and comfortable for you, the couple, as possible so check back often.
What if I purchase a bundle and then there’s no florist available for my date?
In the event that we can’t find a florist due to availability on your date, we will let you know within 2-3 business days and reimburse you in full.
What is the difference between in-season and out-of-season flowers?
Flowers that are considered in season are easier to source and the most cost-friendly option. Different flowers are in season at different times, which is why we ask you which month you’re getting married in so we can keep you informed. Flowers that are out of season are tougher to source and significantly more expensive to purchase (such as peonies and orchids, for example). Some out-of-season flowers have a very short in-season timeframe that even when they are available, they’re still too expensive to be considered in season. For this reason, we make every effort to tell you which flowers are in season and out of season so that you can decide which you’d like for your wedding and what they will cost. You can always make any changes with your florist if you change your mind!
