Well now the exciting part... here is the beginning of your custom made flowers! I can't wait to hear all about your special occasion and how I can help. It would be super to have lots of information like when the big day will be, who might need flowers & the kind of colours or style you might like so I can get you a full and accurate quote.
If you would like to attach any images please just message me directly at Rebecca@PaperBouquets.co.uk or via Insta / FB
2022 last few dates remaining. 2023/24 Diary open.
Note: All messages are replied to ASAP but can take a couple of days at busy times, if you have not received a reply within 3 days please check spam/junk.
Quotation & Invoicing: For an exact quote please provide as much information as possible including date of event, who flowers will be required for and type of bouquet/flower desired. Prices will be based on overall design and finish. Additions such as foliage, brooches, blossom, photos, lockets, ribbon handle finish etc should be requested at the time of booking to be included in the quote. The quote includes colours choices from the 'standard' range of colours. Glitter and Pearl Papers will be charged as extra if selected from swatches selection pack nearer the make date, this generally works out as £7.95 per 10 sheets required (which is the minimum fee). For example choosing 2 pearl or glitter colours would add £15.90 to the balance, if the flowers require more than 10 sheets per colour this would be added to the total. Any additional fees will be quoted for at the time of confirmation on colour choices.
Payment: A price will be provided for the full total including pp. Orders must be secured with a non-refundable deposit of around 33% of the overall total. No booking is guaranteed until payment has been made, where possible we will try to be flexible but if there were 1 date remaining and more than 1 person were looking to secure the date it would go to the first to make deposit payment not necessarily the first who asked. The deposit is non-refundable to cover allocation of make date, the upfront cost of materials and running costs and time already dedicated to the ordering process. Upon receipt of deposit I will confirm it has been received and give you the official make date (please allow 14 days either side for work to actually begin). Payments can be made either via PayPal or BACS Direct transfer. Please note PayPal will be charged an additional 5% on the quoted price to cover fees and charges incurred. Overseas PayPal payments will be charged 7% to cover conversion fees.
The remaining balance is due on the 1st day of the month your order has been scheduled. For example if your order is in the diary for 5th March your payment is due 1st March, or if it is in the diary for 30th September balance is due 1st September. The due date will be given at time of booking, and again when confirming final detail for the order. Once the order has been made you will be sent images of your items via email or other chosen form of communication (eg Facebook, Insta, hitched). No items will be made or posted until in full receipt of payment. If the total order value is greater than £500 the remaining balance is due 6 weeks prior to work commencing and is entirely non refundable. Paper Bouquets UK reserve the right to resell items made if client cancels order or fails to pay within agreed number of days of invoice for balance and no refund will be given. If the total was £200 and £60 was the non-refundable deposit the remaining £140 would be due the first day of the month work has been scheduled for. If your order is placed less than 8 weeks before a make date, payment in full at the time of booking in place of the 33% deposit will be requested to secure the order and is non refundable.
Turn Around & process: Ideally your bouquet will be in the diary for work to begin 8-10 weeks prior to the wedding date, this is subject to availability so could be a little earlier or a little closer to the date depending on schedule. Where possible we have the bouquet with you 4 weeks in advance of the wedding at the latest, unless there are extreme circumstances or prior agreed for delivery to be closer to the date. Orders take up to 21 days from start until delivered. You will be contacted around 8 weeks before work is due to begin when I check in with you that all the details are correct. Once confirmed further changes may not be possible or may be charged, removing items may still incur a full or partial charge.
Change to details: We gather as many details as possible at the initial quotation stage to get you the most accurate price. Changes, additions or cancellations to an order must be made in writing no later than 12 weeks prior to the provided ‘start date’. Should you cancel items after the cut of point a refund may not be possible. Time is allocated to each order based on size and details, where possible we will try to accommodate increases to an order but this cannot be guaranteed if diary will not permit additional time required. At busy times the waiting list can be up to 8 months long, for this reason it can be difficult to change a make date once it has been agreed ie if we initially agree for it to be made in the September you will not be able to change this to an earlier date in June.
Cancellations & Refunds: If circumstances change and you need to cancel your order you must confirm cancellation as soon as possible and follow up in writing. The booking deposit of approx. 33% is non-refundable. If cancellation comes after 12 weeks prior to the make date but you have paid more than the 33% deposit up to 100% payment will be non-refundable to cover the loss of orders, there is up to an 8 month waiting list so work will have been turned away to accommodate your order. Postponed weddings will be accommodated where possible, diary schedule depending and only up to a maximum of 14 months, if diary will not permit the order will be cancelled without refund. As deposits are non refundable in any circumstance (which is standard for the vast majority of wedding suppliers) wedding insurance should be considered, and we will supply receipts for any claims.
Every effort is made to create the perfect bouquet, colour swatches are available to help you pick the desired combination and photos are sent of the completed bouquet, we check and double check and confirm with you before starting your order to ensure we have all the correct details. Should you change your mind on design or colours after the confirmation or receipt of goods you will not be entitled to a refund and you may be charged up to 100% of the total value for a redesign (redesign only if time available in schedule).
In the extremely unlikely event that Paper Bouquets UK cannot honour an order you will be notified at the earliest opportunity and fully refund any deposit or payment already made unless exceptional circumstances, such as illness or death where it would be impossible for refunds to be facilitated.
Delivery: Items are posted with a selected courier based on over all weight of parcel. All orders with a value greater than £100 are sent with signature required, tracked and insured. Delivery is generally sent Royal Mail and will take 2-4 working days from receipt of payment. International shipping - your quote will be based on an average shipping valuation. If when booking the shipping 'Remote Location' or other unforeseen fees apply the customer will be required to meet the shortfall. For example if an assumption was made for £45 for international shipping for shipping but on arranging this the courier quotes £85 the customer will pay an additional £40 to cover the shortfall (this is an extreme example). Since Brexit countries in the EU are experiencing long delays in receiving their parcels due to hold ups for customs fees and charges to be arranged at the recipients end. We do not profit from shipping and postage costs. The rate paid is only the courier fee plus insurance plus tracking service. Please note insurance is usually charged at approx. 5%-8% of the total value plus shipping costs.

ALWAYS research your seller, check their reviews and research their credibility.
Where possible sample colour swatches will be provided to make colour choices, every effort will be made to use the colours requested but from time to time suppliers discontinue lines or paper may have variation in colour during production, where possible a suitable alternative may be used in place of unavailable colours without prior notice. Swatches sent are a guide but can and may vary from final results of finished bouquet. This also applies to finishing touches, components and embellishments. We will always try to ensure the original request is honoured but in the event of those parts or components not being available a substitute will be used to match as closely as possible.
Approximate sizes of bouquets and decorations are given where possible, these are an approximate and all items will differ. Please allow Rebecca and Paper Bouquets UK artistic licence to create your bouquet, as much as we love to help get the specifics right and meet request please understand this is an artistic process as of which we rely on our own eye and imagination to create the most beautiful bouquet. We aren't going to make you a red bouquet if you've asked for lemon, we just don't want to be limited, we want to make it even more amazing if we can.
Paper Flowers are unique and handmade and as such, flowers, colours and arrangements may differ from each other. Bouquets are photographed at different times of day and edited for the best appearance and colours. Pictures may not give a true reflection of colour pallet so colour choices should be based on the physical colour swatches rather than photos. Paper flowers are generally very robust but they are after all paper so necessary care should be taken with them. It goes without saying you do not generally want to subject them to moisture and keeping away from long term sunlight will help preserve the colours.
Most flowers are made with a soft wood stem, under pressure or if pulled apart they may snap. Occasionally flowers will be made onto wire stems. I will not take any responsibility for personal damage or damage to these bouquets. Flower girl bouquets/wands and posies must used with parental supervision at all times. Buttonholes will be provided with a brooch back or separate pin. If being used by children supervision should be given at all times. Paper Bouquets UK shall not be liable for any special or consequential damages that result from the use of, or the inability to use, materials or products provided.
Please note although very rare, in some cases trinkets/brooches can come loose during shipping. In this case please contact us as soon as possible for advice although the easiest and quickest resolution is would usually be to simply reattached the item with a strong super glue or hot glue gun at home.
COVID-19 - During this time of uncertainty we will do all we can to work with you to help any movement of dates etc. Please let us know at your earliest opportunity if a wedding is being moved so we can help accommodate a new make date carrying over the deposit to a new make date. If a booking is cancelled due to Covid or any other reason the deposit is non refundable. The deposit will not be returned and your order will be cancelled.
An order will be confirmed before work begins, a postponement would need to be discussed prior to or on the the final check and confirmation. If an order has been confirmed on the final check and preparations have begun we may not be able to postpone the work therefore the client should honour payment upon completion of work as previously arranged. The bouquets will store perfectly for months and years.
