What makes them different?
For any bride, looking for a florist to help create the wedding of her dreams, this is a truly wonderful shop to work with. First, they offer a complimentary consultation with the bride (and groom). Your floral consultant will help you understand all of your options when it comes to ordering and designing your bouquets and custom centerpieces. They are extremely knowledgeable and keep your best interests at heart. So, with that being said, the fearful bride who might be reading this, you may be wondering about budget. That scary little word that all brides know too well.
Something Special, specializes in accommodating you. They are not concerned with a minimum order or a down payment of mass proportions. They work within your budget. Yes, your budget is their best friend. During your complimentary consultation, you will be able to talk "budget" with your consultant. Whether you have $2,000 set aside for flowers or if your only have $200, the staff at Something Special will work hard to make your dreams come true!
* Some floral shops require down payments or minimum orders, so make sure you call to inquire about this detail before selecting a florist to work with!
Another reason we love Something Special is because they are truly "with it." They know that most of the world is using Pinterest to organize and inspire ideas for their big day. So, upon your consultation, they encourage you to bring in your Pinterest board! Your consultant will be elated to take a look at your "pins" in order to understand your color pallets, floral themes and the flowers you are dreaming of.
