Flowers & Sense is a private design studio where we design life event flowers with special attention to detail and design. Whether by phone or by appointment we can consult with you and create the perfect floral arrangement for any occasion. If you don’t find exactly the bouquet you are looking for on our website just call and I will gladly custom design your gift. To ensure that you get exactly what you want be sure to order at least a day ahead as we maintain a daily rotating fresh inventory of select flowers.
We will personally deliver your flowers in Barrie and the surrounding areas of Midhurst, Horseshoe Valley, Oro, Innisfil and the townships of Springwater and Essa. If you want to speak to us personally just call ahead for an appointment 705-733-3355 or Skype us at Marilyn Ruyter.
Our by appointment only consultations will take you through the complete floral planning of your wedding. We will begin with designing your bouquet to match your style, colour, dress and season. From there we will design boutonnieres, attendants’ bouquets and corsages for your family. Once this theme is developed we will help you realize the perfect centerpieces and decor for the ceremony and reception.
Flowers & Sense can create and deliver all reception flowers or help you with your own DIY projects. We will guide you through the design process and bring all the elements of your wedding into one wonderful story about the both of you. Our goal is to make your vision happen for a truly spectacular wedding. If you want to see our weekly wedding designs like us on Facebook at Flowers & Sense.
FYI: Please email or call to schedule an appointment for your initial consultation so your Wedding Consultant can give you the individual attention you deserve. To enable us to best advise you, we recommend you first select your ceremony and reception locations; securing the date and times. We also recommend you bring photos of your gown, the attendants’ gowns and your wedding day venues so styles, textures and colors may be coordinated to give you the most effective visual presentation possible. A meeting at your venue is also possible. After the initial conference with your Wedding Consultant, and you have made the deposit listed below, you will receive a copy of your contract, which will specifically outline all flowers, accessories, rentals, and services. We ask you to carefully read the contract and contact us should there be any changes or omissions. Any and all further minor changes can be made up to ten days before your wedding. These changes should be made in person at Flowers & Sense and initialed on the wedding contract. Costs resulting from any changes will be debited/credited to the final total of your order. Flowers & Sense requires a non-returnable retainer of 30 % of your wedding contract to reserve a specific date and time for your wedding. This fee will be credited to the final total balance due of your wedding flowers. Certain types of rental equipment may require additional refundable deposits, which will be outlined to you at the time of your initial conference. The final balance of your wedding (reflecting the credit of your initial deposit) is to be paid in full no less than ten calendar days prior to your wedding date by cash or credit card. Contact us to schedule your appointment.
