We recently told many of our brides about our upcoming sample sale, which is taking place in November. To clear up some confusion, we’ve decided to explain ourselves a little better. Here are all the details and answers to the most frequently asked questions.
We are participating in a bridal show at The Greenview Inn at Eastlyn Golf Course in Vinleand on Tuesday, November 13, 2012 at 6:30 pm. (If you want to attend the bridal show, you can register by clicking here.) For the show, we make various flower arrangements to display at our booth. Some of the arrangements we display are samples we create for our brides. Since we are using the samples in the show, we offer our brides 40% off the invoice price for all samples. Win-win for both!
Samples can be viewed at the flower shop on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 or Thursday, November 15, 2012 between 9 am and 8 pm (or come see us at the show!). To view your samples at the shop, you must make an appointment. We are booking 1.5 hour appointments, so we have plenty of time to review all of the details on the order. The extra $40 meeting fee is also waived.
So what is a sample?
A sample is an arrangment we create so you can see what the flowers will look like on the day of your wedding. The most common samples we create are bridal bouquets and centerpieces. We try to use the exact flowers, vases, and ribbon for the sample as we will use on the day of your wedding. This allows you to get a sneak peek at your wedding flowers.
Why would you order a sample?
Many brides find it useful to order a sample because it helps them visualize their wedding day. For instance, if you order a sample centerpiece, you will get to see how your centerpieces will look on the day of your wedding. This is very beneficial to brides who have a hard time visualizing or who are unsure about their flower choices. By viewing a sample before your wedding, you can decide if you want to make any changes to your order and iron out last minute details before the big day.
What is the 40% discount?
Normally, samples are the same price as the day-of items listed on your invoice. For instance, if your bridal bouquet is $150 and you want to see a sample, the sample would be $150. However, during this sample sale, we offer 40% off on all samples. Therefore, the bouquet sample valued at $150 would be $90. This discount only applies to the samples. It does not apply to your day-of order.
When can I see my sample?
The samples will be on display at the bridal show on Tuesday, November 13,2012. If you choose to attend the bridal show (which is not necessary), you can view your sample at the show. Otherwise, we have appointments available on Wednesday, November 14, 2012 and Thursday, November 15, 2012 between 9 am and 8 pm. Since we already displayed the arrangements at the bridal show, you will be able to take home the sample, excluding any rental items.
In the past, brides have really enjoyed participating in the sample sale. They love getting a sneak peek at their wedding flowers! If you are interested in taking advantage of our sample sale, contact Mary at firstname.lastname@example.org or (609)-364-2529.
**Important Note: All orders are due by Tuesday, November 7, 2012 at 5:00 PM.
