Weddings & Event Florals FAQ

● Where are you located?
We are located in the heart of Goffstown Village in the repurposed old train station, with our storefront on Depot Street across from Ace Hardware. Most people will spot our plant-covered porch. We also have a design studio where we work on all of our weddings and events so we can be sure to pour our love and effort into each. Although we are located in New Hampshire, we do weddings all over the country. We absolutely love to travel!

● Do you have a portfolio?
We have several weddings and events on our website. We love customizing each wedding to truly reflect who you are as a couple.  View our past work. 

● Are you available for weddings in 2021? Do you have a minimum? 
Unfortunately, we are fully booked for weddings in 2021. 
We are taking bookings for 2022 with a minimum of $5000. Weekends are quickly filling up, though, so 
please get in touch to discuss this further. 

● Do you have any wedding packages or a price sheet?
Every wedding is customized. However, an Apotheca weddings client should plan on spending $5000 and up with our average being around $7500. 

● Do you have a minimum for event florals?
It depends! While weddings do have a minimum, event florals vary greatly as event florals are customized per order, so please ask!

● Can you get the flowers I want?
We work closely with multiple suppliers, both locally and internationally. This means that if a flower isn’t in season in the United States, we can usually work with one of our international suppliers to source it.
That being said, there are times when certain flowers are simply not available. We do everything we can to source the flowers and the colors that you want. However, if a flower is simply not available, we will work together to find an alternative solution.

● Do you travel?
Yes! We have worked all over New England, New York and beyond. We truly love to travel on creative projects and are up for anything! Please enquire.

●What is the quote and payment process for a wedding?

After telling us a bit about yourselves on our enquiry form, we will reach out to you. (You should hear from us within 24 hours, with the exception of weekends when we are out on weddings. If this is the case, then you can expect to hear from us one the next business day).

You will receive a letter that provides more information about us, our process and price ranges.

From there, we book a consult where you visit us at the shop if possible (or FaceTime/phone in) and we run through what it is that you are looking for!

We are committed to creating designs that reflect you as a couple. To ensure this, we will work with both of you throughout the design guide for your personal flowers before the big day. At this point we will also do a final rundown to confirm all timings and locations. This is to ensure that you're 100% happy and that your wedding day is how you envisioned it!

● How do we book you?

We do book in advance, so to ensure your spot with us, we require a non-refundable 25% hold the date retainer (based on the initial design guide total) along with a signed contract. But remember- your designs are not set in stone at this point. We love to watch concepts evolve and will work with you to make sure you get the overall look you want on the big day! 

Can we keep the vases?
This is something that can be discussed as it typically depends on the type of vase. Renting vases is an option; however, we can include purchase prices into the quote if asked to do so. 
We detail what is rented and what is purchased in the design guide. Any rented items need to be returned in the condition which they were rented out.

● Can we use our own vases?
Absolutely! We schedule drop off dates and times to ensure that a member of the weddings team is there to receive the items. We simply ask that they are clean and “de-stickered”, and that when they are dropped off they are labelled with your name and wedding/event date. 

● Do you offer samples for a wedding?
45 days prior to the wedding we hold a free mock up meeting, where you are able to come in (or Facetime in) and see an example of your centerpiece. 

If, after this meeting, you wish to change the style of the centerpiece, the colors, the flowers and need a new mock up, then we do charge the cost of the flowers to cover this.

Do you offer samples for an event?
Centerpiece mock-ups are available upon request.
