WHY SHOULD I CHOOSE FINDING FLORA FOR MY WEDDING?
Want your wedding to be memorable for you and your guests? Have a million ideas or not sure where to start? We're here to help. Floral designer, Megan Wise, takes on a limited number of events each year so that she can be fully invested in each client's wedding. Aside from sourcing the most beautiful flowers and arranging them artfully, you can expect a warm professionalism from Megan and her team. Finding Flora is committed to lightening your load, creating an interactive experience for your guests and curating a wedding design unique to you that you'll love for years to come.
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED?
Megan recently moved to Southern Utah from California, an area best known for Zion National Park. We take on weddings in the St. George, UT area, while a majority of our weddings are destination elsewhere. Megan is happily available for weddings locally and worldwide.
WHAT IS YOUR AVAILABILITY?
We book a limited amount of weddings each year - both local and destination - and dates generally book between 6-12 months in advance. Please contact us for availability after confirming your wedding venue. We book on a first come, first serve basis. A retainer and signed contract will be required in order to reserve your date on our calendar.
HOW MUCH DO YOU CHARGE FOR WEDDING FLORALS?
As no two weddings are the same, please contact us for a custom proposal. Our full-service pricing depends on what items and quantity you desire, and services that may be necessary to bring your order to life (such as design, installation, set up, breakdown, travel, etc). Megan's designs are known for using a wide variety luxurious ingredients, sourcing the best blooms from Holland, Italy Japan and local artisan farmers that together to create eye-catching designs. Please contact us for pricing and availability.
WHAT IS YOUR PROCESS FOR FULL-SERVICE?
We guarantee you will love our process, which we've designed to be efficient, warmhearted and fun! Megan will work with you to artfully create the wedding you've been dreaming of. Once your retainer and signed contract is received, your wedding date will be reserved on our calendar and Megan will begin your custom design. On your wedding day, our design team will handle install and personally hand off your bridal party flowers before the First Look. Following your reception, our team will handle removing florals and decor for you, so you don't have to worry about a thing.
DO YOU TAKE ON DESTINATION WEDDINGS?
We absolutely love destination weddings and bringing our custom design services to you, whether it's in other parts of the state, the country or across the globe. For destination (or out of area) weddings, please contact us for an estimate.
DO YOU OFFER A LA CARTE FLORALS?
Why yes! We offer A La Carte for local Southern Utah weddings only. This is a fabulous option for local weddings who are not necessarily in need of set up or breakdown but desire Finding Flora's signature designs. A La Carte includes personal flowers and select ceremony and reception items. If interested, we will send you a menu to select your items from. The A La Carte order minimum is $1,500. On your wedding day, items can be dropped off to your venue or you may pick up.
DO YOU OFFER FLOWERS FOR ELOPEMENTS?
If the elopement is local, we suggest our A La Carte option for Southern Utah. We also love to travel, so please contact us for destination elopements.
CAN YOU RECOMMEND WEDDING VENDORS TO ME?
Yes, absolutely! We feel fortunate to work with talented photographers, planners, calligraphers, and more, and are happy to make introductions upon request.
DO YOU TAKE ON OTHER EVENTS?
We do! While our focus is primarily weddings, we are more than happy to design flowers for other events -- including rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, baby showers, birthdays, anniversaries, and other special occasions. If interested, please contact us.
DO YOU TAKE ON EDITORIALS OR STYLED SHOOTS?
We LOVE editorial shoots and collaborating with other talented artists and publications. If you are planning to visit the Southern Utah area for your photo shoot, please contact us at least 6 weeks in advance. Travel is also available upon request. Here are some examples of our editorial collaborations:
Megan takes on a limited amount of styled shoots per year in order to be fully invested in each project. In exchange for editorial inclusion, she is willing to donate her design work and time, along with other minimal costs that go into styled shoots.
Each year we allot our marketing budget to styled shoots. Depending on where the marketing budget stands, involvement may or may not include the cost of florals (and travel if required). We realize other vendors (e.g. rentals, clothing, accessories, etc) for shoots may be available to loan their product at little to no fee. This is usually because their involvement is typically minimal and don't have perishable products like flowers, which can't be reused again. As you can imagine, this keeps other vendor's contribution expenses low.
Megan's involvement requires several laborious days of prep work, including collaborating, ordering flowers from some of the best wholesalers and flower farmers, flower processing, designing, transporting and onsite installation. Megan will do her absolute best to accommodate, so please contact us for availability.
