Frequently Asked Questions
1. Where are you located?
River & Eve flora is based in Sydney, NSW.
We coordinate flowers for couples getting married all across Sydney as well as in the Southern Highlands, South Coast and Blue Mountains, NSW. However, we are available for floral design all across Australia for the right couple!
2. How far in advance do I need to book?
On average, couples book anywhere between 6-12 months out from their wedding day. Shorter time frames are possible, however we may have fewer dates available by then!
To secure your date, a 30% deposit is required. After your deposit is paid, changes can (and most likely will) be made. Finer details are usually confirmed 4 weeks prior to your event.
3. Do you have wedding packages?
Nope! Just as every client is unique, so is every event we curate. Quotes are customized and tailored to you, your style and your budget requirements. Prices can be affected by the flowers you have your heart set on, the location of your event and the scale/logistics of certain designs. Alternatively, Kathleen has made this general price guide to help you understand what your budget can achieve. Find it here!
4. What should I expect to spend on wedding flowers?
Most of our couples spend between $3500 – $8000 on their wedding flowers. Spending less or more on this average all depends on if you want florals to be a significant component of the experience for the day. Please keep in mind that these costs factor in one-on-one consultations, bespoke conception of designs, hire of vases, set-up, delivery and pack down services.
5. What sustainable practices do you have in place?
River & Eve flora is passionate about eco-friendly events. We are quickly moving towards eliminating the use of 'floral foam'. Currently, about 95% of our work is created using eco-friendly mechanics. Therefore we are preventing dangerous micro plastics from entering ecosystems, and stopping your exposure to them.
During the designing process, plastics are separated from green waste, and disposed of correctly.
Along with organically growing a range of specialty flowers in our micro-farm, we buy flowers and foliage mainly from local farmers.
We also compost all the botanicals after your event, and use this compost in the garden to feed the new plants!
6. Do you do site visits?
We sure do. Depending on the scale of weddings, Kathleen will gladly meet you at your chosen venue to discuss design concepts.
