Frequently Asked Questions

Wedding and DIY bucket Customers

When is your next florist open day?


Currently to be confirmed, check the website for news.




What months of the year are your DIY buckets available?


From May through till October.




How many stems in a bucket?


On average 60-80 stems, depending on how bulky the stems are.




What flowers will be in the bucket?


I am unable to provide detailed descriptions of each bucket ordered. There will however be at least 6 different varieties in each bucket with a range of different sizes and shapes to help you create a beautiful layered design.




How many buckets will I need?


This depends on the vessels for your arrangement and is entirely personal preference. Many customers find it useful to do a practice run by purchasing 1 bucket once they have chosen their vessels. A very general guideline is that 1 bucket will do 8 jam jars, or 2 medium sized table centres or 2 bouquets.




Do I need to return the buckets?


No need to return the buckets provided with your flowers, these are now yours to keep.




How far in advance would you suggest we arrange the DIY bucket flowers for our ceremony?


If the venue is cool and sheltered then the flowers can be arranged the day before in-situ. Otherwise the arrangements can be stored in a cool spot and moved into the venue before the ceremony.




How far in advance I would need to book DIY buckets?


More notice is always appreciated. Orders requiring more than 4 buckets will need to checked for availability and booked to save the date. For small orders (1- 3 buckets) we can take last minute bookings up to 3 days before the event, but make sure to catch us on the phone to confirm as last-minute emails may be missed.




Do you deliver DIY buckets and wedding flowers?


Collection suits us down to the ground as we are extremely busy out in the field growing all these beautiful flowers. However, if collection is just not an option then we do offer delivery for a fee.

Delivery is charged at 45p per mile plus and hourly rate of £10 per hour (hourly rate will be rounded up to the nearest half hour)




Do you provide tuition for arranging DIY wedding flowers?


This can be arranged with your order please state in additional comments that this is something you would like. Price on application.




What is your typical price quote for a wedding?


This is entirely dependent on budget, style, venue, number of people in the bridal party and many other variables. Please refer to our wedding flower menu and order form to work out your requirements.




How do I go about placing an order?


For bridal orders - download the Wedding flower order form.

For just DIY buckets please download the DIY bucket order form.

These can both be found on the website under the relavent tabs

Fill out the form, save a copy onto your computer using your full name and date you need flowers for. Send me a copy of the updated order form to weddings@scottishcutflowers.co.uk




How much is the non-refundable booking fee and what is it for?


The fee is £50 and for the purpose of saving-the-date in our diary. We do not over stretch ourselves so that we can provide top quality wedding flowers to a very select number of couples each year.




What happens to my booking fee and deposit if i cancel my order?


The booking fee is non-refundable. The deposit will be fully repaid if the order is cancelled at least 30days before the wedding date.




What do I have to pay and when?


Upon confirming your wedding order a non-refundable booking fee and 40% deposit is taken. Both these sums will be deducted from your final bill. The final balence is due 1 month before your wedding date. We will send you a invoice at this point.





General

What months of the year are flowers available?


April/May through to October




Directions for collection or open day


The postcode for Errol estate is PH2 7RA, it depends on which route you approach as to which entrance the sat nav will use.

If you are coming from Dundee you will most likely come in through the North lodge; if coming from Perth, then it should be South lodge.

You will know you’re in the right place if you see a cottage with blue arches next to a walled garden.

If you walk into the garden you will see a brown shed in the middle of the field. If I am unable to meet you in person then your buckets will be under the sheds’ porch




When is your next open day?
