Q’s

What is the best time to schedule a consultation?

Thank you for asking!  During peak season I am available Monday-Wednesday between 9am – 5pm.  I operate by appointment only and you can schedule that by emailing me at macsfloral@gmail.com

How far out should I book my consultation?

Great question.   I suggest scheduling your consultation 8-12 months prior to your wedding or event.  Mac’s Floral is a first come first serve event floral company and requires a retainer to reserve dates.  Dates will not be held without signed contract & retainer. 

Do I need to meet with my florist in person?

I highly recommend you meet your florist in person to determine if you are a good fit for one another.  However I work with many out-of-state clients and am able to communicate by email or phone leading up to the event.  I understand many couples plan during holidays and breaks from school and will do my best to accommodate during those times.

How long does a consultation last?

Consultations last approximately 30-45 minutes.   During this time we will discuss your floral preferences, color palette, overall feel & budget.  I ask that you bring along any inspiration you have collected such as color swatches, magazine clippings or a link to your Pinterest page.  This will help us determine your style and suggest floral choices.  If you book with Mac’s Floral I recommend a second consultation closer to the wedding to finalize details.

Do you have a pricelist?  What is the average cost of wedding flowers?

There are many factors that affect the pricing of wedding flowers.  How many attendents are in the wedding party?  What type of floral are you drawn to?  What floral is in season?  Where is the venue and how much travel is involved?  Every contract is completely different than the next.  For this reason we do not offer a pricelist.

On average our clients spend between $2500.00-$3000.00

Do you rent glassware, vases or other rentals? 

Yes, Mac’s Floral offers a variety of rentals for wedding included vases, lanterns, votives and more.  Please inquire for rental fees and policies.

Do you have testimonials from previous clients?

Yes of course, under Reviews you will find feedback from past clients as well as reviews on Facebook, Yelp and Weddingwire.com.  We encourage you to check them out!

Do you require a deposit? and when is it due?

Yes.  Mac’s Floral requires a 30% non-refundable retainer fee due at the time of booking.  We can accept any form of payment including check, credit cards or paypal.  Mac’s Floral will not hold dates without a retainer & signed contract.

Do you have a minimum order?

Mac’s Floral does not require a minimum.  However keep in mind flowers come in pre-packed quantities so smaller orders can frequently cost more to account for additional product & shipping.

Do you charge a delivery fee?

Delivery within 15 miles of Billings, MT is complimentary.  For events outside the Billings area, a fee of .60/mi + labor will be added to your contract.  Contracts requiring overnight stay / accommodations will receive a separate bill to account for meal per diems & lodging.

May I pick up my floral order?

Yes.  Macs Floral does allow pick up with a signed waiver.  This waiver releases Macs Floral from any damage sustained in transport and encourages best practice.  Keep in mind the size of the order / size of the transport vehicle, extreme weather (hot or cold), and delegation of placement once they reach their destination.  It is not the responsibility of Macs Floral to organize or schedule delivery or placement.
