What is the difference between Set-up/Placement and On-Site Design/Installation?

Simple placement of wedding florals is covered in our ‘set-up fee’ listed on each wedding quote, regardless of budget. For events that require on-site design and more involved installations, Walter Pine is able to provide this level of service for wedding floral budgets of $5,000 and above. This service is listed as ‘installation fee’ on a quote. 

Set-Up =  Simple placement of wedding flowers 

We define this as delivery of personal, ceremony, and reception flowers that simply require placement on stands or tables at the venue.

On-site Design and Installation

We define this as delivery which also includes an involved set-up, on-site floral design or extensive styling on location. Examples include floral arches, styled intricate tablescapes, hanging florals, etc. We offer this level of service for wedding budgets starting at $5,000.
