Stella Event Design is the premire wedding and event florist in Southwest Michigan. Beautiful blooms & creative containers From the perfect picked-from-the-garden bouquet to creative & unique centerpieces, we can help you to create the wedding day you’ve always dreamed of, whether it be rustic-chic, traditional, contemporary or beach-inspired! As a special event florist, all of our orders are customized to fit your specific style and needs. We suggest booking your date 9-12 months in advance, and making your floral selections about 6 months prior to your wedding. We’re happy to sit down with you to help you turn your photos and inspiration into the perfect custom floral design! In an effort to make the process as easy as possible, We have provided as much information about our policies & process as possible below. We're more than happy to answer any additional questions you may have! We are an events-only florist and have a $1,000 minimum order. This is usually not an issue if you plan to use fresh flowers for both personal flowers (bouquets, corsages, boutonnieres etc) as well as ceremony and reception (centerpieces). We are often asked about what is "average." This varies greatly, but our average floral order is $2500-$3000 for a wedding of 150 guests if you plan to use fresh flowers for both personal flowers (bouquets, etc) as well as reception (centerpieces). We've created everything from $2,000 to $15,000 designs, and can create something beautiful to meet almost any budget! If you're early in the process (which you are), we just require a signed contract and $750 (non-refundable) retainer to secure your date. Pricing on the products change from time to time, so we do our actual designing (which determines your pricing) for you once we're 6 - 3 months before your wedding. Once a quote is created (or 3 months prior to your wedding, whichever is first) a 50% deposit (less your initial $750 deposit) is required. Some brides are ready to sit down and put a quote together right from the start, and bypass the initial $750 deposit. Please note that the 50% deposit is what locks in individual pricing on each item, as those are based on current wholesale costs. Your final balance and changes are due approximately 3 weeks prior to your wedding date, unless otherwise noted by your designer. Setup services start at $75, depending on your order & location. We design a limited number of events each weekend, to make sure your event gets the time & attention it deserves, and have very limited dates available each year. Providing a deposit and completed contract to us guarantees our service for you. We have a large assortment of in-stock containers, including standard cylinders, cubes, and glass white cubes, corrugated zinc cylinders, mercury glass, pedestal bowls, vintage glass, etched gold & silver planter boxes, barn-wood boxes and planter boxes, and more.
