All images © Lavender Rose Farms LLCWe are already in full swing (earlier this year than usual) for floral design/wedding parties. I have put an announcement on our Etsy shop that we will need 4-6 weeks lead time to create wedding parties. If the order is for only 1-2 bouquets, we likely will be able to produce those faster. However, PLEASE write a note with your orders if you need the bouquets before 4-6 weeks and we can try to accommodate (but not guaranteed). We actually appreciate when brides or wedding planners provide the wedding date at time of order. I tend to note this on each order so I can make sure I am meeting your deadline.
We have all our listing for floral design auto-set to 4-6 weeks currently. So unless I hear from you specifically in a note with your order that you need it before that time frame, it will be slated to go out in 4-6 weeks.
I've had a few busy brides not check listing times when ordering and found out their orders would not make it out in time for their wedding! Gratefully, thus far I have been able to accommodate each order in a rush capacity. However, we cannot always guaranty that will be the case. It really depends how busy we are at a particular given time if I can push a rush order through. So... to avoid missing your special date PLEASE keep track of our production times.
I periodically post this to our social media and our blog, but it's ALWAYS listed clearly what our floral design timframe is on our Etsy shop page under the Description - Announcement on the home Page. Also frequently asked questions are in this section. Additionally, when you place your order you will receive a shipping date. If this is later than you would like reach out to us. As I said, I will try my best to accommodate but not always guaranteed.
Here is our current notice on the Etsy Page.
"IMPORTANT NOTICE: FLORAL DESIGN is running at 4-6 weeks. Please allow this amount of time before our event at a minimum. If you are just ordering a single bouquet and need it before this time frame please drop me a note. Also, if your order is for a wedding or some other kind of event PLEASE write a us a note with the date of event so we can make sure to meet your deadline. We cannot guaranty rush orders. FLOWERS ARE DRIED, not fresh. "
Each bouquet is handcrafted at the time of your order. No PRE-MADE bouquets sitting around getting dusty or faded. I want your designs to be freshly made. Because our bouquets are not mass produced in advance, we do need the extra time to hand create. Thank you so much for understanding!
