When should I contact KG Designs to discuss the floral and design of my event?
This depends on your event type and date.
For weddings it’s always best to commence floral/design process sooner than later. We’ve found that 9-10 months prior to the wedding date is usually sufficient to secure our services. Though please understand that spring and fall are extremely popular for weddings in Alabama and KG Designs books an extremely limited number of events each week. With that in mind, to guarantee our availability on a specific date, please don’t put off calling us for too long.
With other “less intensive” special occasions such as corporate events, fundraisers, and holiday parties “sooner than later” still applies, though we can usually accomplish your goals with far less advance planning.
Do you charge a consultation fee?
No. KG Designs is happy to meet, discuss your event, share ideas, and create an estimate free of charge or obligation. To arrange this one-time free consultation, please visit the CONTACT page and commence the process.
What should I do to prepare for my bridal consultation with KG Designs?
So that our design experts can best understand your vision, we suggest that you search magazines and various wedding websites for ideas that inspire. Also, it’s helpful if you know what style you want your wedding to be. (i.e. Modern, Traditional, Formal, Contemporary, etc.) Finally, it’s helpful (but not necessary) if you can provide us with the following information:
Should I bring anything to my bridal consultation?
You don’t need to bring a thing, though if you find specific photos of weddings, bouquets, or large floral arrangements
that inspire you, please bring them in so that they can help us to create to your vision. Additionally, if you have a specific
color to match (i.e. bridesmaid dress), please bring a swatch to your consultation.
Approximately how long does the initial consultation last?
Though each bride has different needs and levels of familiarity with wedding design, the average consultation takes
anywhere from 60-90 minutes.
When do consultations take place?
As the majority of KG Designs’ events take place over weekends, we like to schedule consultations Monday through Thursday. Please visit our CONTACT page to start the process now.
How do I reserve KG Designs’ services?
After your initial consultation, a non-refundable deposit of $500.00 will reserve your date.
How do I determine a floral budget?
There’s no set-in-stone guideline. For a very general idea of floral costs, you can plan on spending about 15-20% of your total wedding budget on flowers. Please note that décor rentals, lighting and other special design elements may increase this percentage estimate.
When does my KG Designs order have to be paid in full and finalized?
As we move forward, KG Designs requires 50% payment by 60 days out and requests that your account be paid in
full at least TWO (2) weeks prior to the event. We accept: cash, checks, Visa, MasterCard and American Express credit cards.
Do you offer wedding design packages?
As it is KG Designs policy to never “recreate” events, we do not offer “pre-set pricing” or “packages.” Your wedding and its
décor should reflect who you are, and as such we’ve found that a customized approach is the best means of determining
the specific elements required for your big day.
What is your service area?
Over the years, KG Designs has created spectacular events across the entire state of Alabama. Additionally, we’ve
also designed weddings and special events in parts of Georgia, Tennessee and along the Florida Gulf Coast.
Does KG Designs create for events other than weddings?
Yes! The bulk of our business is weddings, but we also design corporate events, fundraisers, holiday parties, and
countless other festive occasions.
