We encourage you to come into the store to let us help you design the perfect flowers for your prom. If you've never ordered flowers before, don't worry. It's a fun experience! We will walk you through the process and make everything as easy as possible. We are your Local Prom Experts. We make hundreds of corsages and boutonnieres and they're all one of a kind. 

When you visit us, it's a good idea to bring along a photo of the dress so we can choose complimentary colors and get an idea of how to best complete your individual look with flowers. We will help you pick the right flowers and accents and we will show you lots of cool ways to upgrade your flowers with gems, feathers, and sparkle. It's best to order the corsage and boutonniere at the same time so we can match them perfectly.

Your Wedding Consultation With Schneider's Florist

Wedding dreams become reality at Schneider's Florist
Last time I talked about wedding planning at Schneider's Florist. I showed you the beautiful stained glass window in our brand new Bridal Consultation room and I introduced our wedding specialist, Ashley Nienaber. Today I want to let you know what to expect and how to prepare for your wedding consultation.

Setting up your appointment: Call 937-323-4634 or email schneidersweddings@gmail.com to arrange a date and time. Our hours are 8-5:30, Monday through Friday, and Saturday 8-2. 

When you arrive: You will be taken to a private room away from the daily activity of the flower shop. Your wedding is important to us. We want to make sure you are given the appropriate level of time and attention in planning your day. 
Warm and inviting. Our private consultation room is where your ideas come to life.
What to bring: The most important thing to bring with you is color swatches for your wedding. We will also want to know the venue for your ceremony and reception. Bring along contact information for the other vendors you are working with so that we can coordinate with them as needed. There's no such thing as too much information!

We want to see your ideas! What is your inspiration? What is your theme? If you have a Pintrest page or your own website, we want to see it! Bring along any photos you have or you can email them to schneidersweddings@gmail.com in advance if you prefer. 

The consultation process usually takes an hour or two. We will spend time getting to know you and gathering as much information as possible about your wedding and all the participants. We will look at everything you provide for us and show you lots of beautiful flowers and any rental items you may be interested in. 
A beautiful bouquet is just the beginning
Ashley has a great personality and she is extremely knowledgeable when it comes to wedding flowers. She will have great ideas for you. We always want to exceed expectations and I'm confident we can do that. 

After your consultation, we will craft a proposal for you based on your needs and the availability and pricing of the flowers and anything else we will be providing. We partner with wholesalers from all over the world to bring fabulous flowers to our brides. Within a few days, we will email the proposal with an estimate for your consideration. If you decide to accept the offer, we will take a $150 deposit at that time to save the date, with payment in full being required three weeks in advance of your wedding date. 

It's been really exciting to create this new space and bring a specialist on board for our wedding services. After meeting with us, you will understand why we are the only choice to execute your unique vision!
