  • How do we book with Oh Hello Petal?
    It’s as easy as one, two, three! 1. Pop through your details on this contact form, and we’ll schedule a phone call to talk all about your wedding. 2. About a week after our chat, you’ll receive your customised estimate and a mood board, via a personal video from Ione. 3. Pay our Save the Date booking fee, then let’s catch up! We’ll go through your full design in detail over celebratory drinks! — it really is that simple!
  • Do we have to pay before we get our full quote?
    The TL;DR version is, yes. We work dangin' hard on your estimate {which you get for free}, and we think that if we're going to do any extra work, we should get paid for it. The full version, however ... Our enquiry process, which includes our initial call, bespoke mood board, and a financial estimate, are all offered without charge and without obligation on your part. We invest a lot of time researching, calculating and planning to create the most beautiful and accurate estimate and mood board for you, and as such we are unable to offer more without our Save the Date booking fee being paid. We trust that by the time you’ve looked over your estimate and viewed your personalised mood board, you'll have enough information to decide whether you want to continue working together.
  • How much is the Save the Date booking fee?
    Our Save the Date booking fee is 20% of your total cost. This payment is deducted from your final invoice ; no unexplained, double charging nonsense here!
  • How much can we change our ideas during the planning process?
    As much as you want, petal! While we're pretty confident that your mood board and design document will be a good reflection of what you want your event to look and feel like, we LOVE to collaborate with our petals, and are open to the tweaks you think might need to be made. Our final call for design changes is one month before The Big Day — any closer than that, and it’s cutting things a bit fine!
  • How soon do we need to book?
    Most styling & planning clients book 6-11 months out from their event, but we can work to a shorter lead time as needed. We do not accept bookings more than 12 months in advance, as market prices can fluctuate too much for us to give an accurate financial estimates so far ahead of time.
  • Do you offer payment plans?
    Absolutely — paying for a wedding can be stressful, even if you've budgeted for it really well! We'll split your package into multiple payments, to make the amounts as manageable as possible, with the remaining amount due to be paid in full 7 days before your event.
  • Does Oh Hello Petal offer any other event services?
    Oh Hello Petal also offers styling for private events such as birthdays, hens, bucks & hucks, anniversaries, and selected corporate events.
  • A family friend has offered to do some of our venue flowers, can you just do our bouquets?
    We love great-aunt-Ethel's heart and desire to help, but eek — this will lead to your design looking messy and confused! Unless otherwise negotiated, we require our couples to agree to exclusivity, which either Oh Hello Petal, or any other florists we engage on your behalf, is the only florist for your whole event, to ensure cohesive event design.
