Why is your minimum higher for mountain weddings?

In order to maintain the caliber of work that represents La Rue Floral's overall style, investments for full service floral begin at $7,000 for weddings in the Denver Area, and $10,000 for mountain wedding venues. The difference in price reflects the level and intensity of labor, total distance traveled, and time commitment required for our team to properly execute and strike a wedding at your mountain venue safely and efficiently. It is our goal to ensure the best floral product and quality designs on your wedding day as well as excellent service, and we’ve determined these starting prices for full service wedding flowers will allow us to do just that.



How many weddings do you do each weekend?

La Rue Floral only takes on one wedding per weekend to ensure our clients receive the best attention and care from us that they deserve. After years of experience, we have realized the importance of being able to focus all of our attention on one client's wedding at a time.



When will we speak with our designer?

After submitting your online inquiry form, we will review your wedding vision, confirm our availability, and contact you within 48 business hours to schedule an appointment. La Rue floral will only be taking 10 to 12 weddings in 2019, and since we are committed to doing only one wedding per weekend, dates do fill up quickly. We suggest beginning the consultation process six to nine months prior to your wedding date to reserve you date on our calendar.



My fiance and I are looking to elope. If all I need are bouquets and boutonnieres, is that something you can do?

Although we adore elopement weddings, we will only be offering full service wedding flowers for 2019. Our floral services are intended for clients looking for personal flowers, ceremony flowers, and reception flowers for their wedding day.



Do you rent vases and decor items?

Yes we do! Our inventory is available to clients who sign a floral contract with us and is included with the overall design concept. Our studio is filled with beautiful vases and vessels, custom arbors and arches, large urns and stands, and a variety of candles and candle holders for all types of styles. Our inventory is housed in our Denver studio.


What is a "sophisticated color palette"?

By working with a designer at La Rue, you'll learn which colors will marry well with flowers and which ones don't. During our consultation, we will discuss floral color combinations and what the most sophisticated options are for your color choices. It's our goal to combine our signature style and aesthetic with your wedding colors and vision, and in doing so, we are able to come up with some of the most beautiful, sophisticated, client-pleasing color palette options. We want your wedding to look and feel beautiful when you walk in to the reception for the first time, and we also want you to have beautiful wedding photos that will look timeless and beautiful for years to come.



Have you ever done a wedding at my venue before?

Probably, but truth be told, it wouldn't matter if we coming there for the first time. As a seasoned, professional floral company, we pride ourselves on how we handle our approach to venues and recognize the importance of communication for every wedding we do. We reach out to every venue coordinator and let them know we are excited to be in their space whether we're returning or visiting for the first time. We confirm all of the things we need to know regarding insurance, load in procedures, florist policies, and any other guidelines that may be specific to each venue. We participate in walk throughs with our clients and their vendors a few months out so that we can learn the space, meet with the venue coordinator(s) in person, and have a clear plan in place for your wedding day. The week of the wedding we finalize all of our load in time, set up and installation details, and confirm any strike policies with your venue and planner. It's also extremely important for us to be invited back, every single time!



Can you explain the labor charges?

Proper labor is imperative in order to execute your wedding smoothly and efficiently and provide the highest level of service on your wedding day. Labor charges vary for each wedding depending on the size and level of installation services required to properly execute it. Labor most often includes the time it takes to process the flowers once they've arrived, the number of designers it takes to create the actual floral arrangements the days leading up to the wedding, as well as hours it takes for the wedding day team to successfully execute the wedding, transport flowers, lift heavy objects, install creative floral pieces, drop off flowers to getting ready locations, perform room turns in different spaces, and provide strike and clean up services after the event. We are always transparent about labor in our pricing, and are happy to discuss your wedding’s labor needs with you at our consultation.


Will My Wedding Be Published?

This is largely determined by your photographer and/or wedding planner. La Rue Floral does not guarantee the publication of any wedding, but always love seeing our real weddings submitted to a publication. Most often, photographers or wedding planners determine the right publication fit and will submit the images after the wedding. La Rue Floral posts images and content to it's social media platforms only when the photographers' imagery is in line with the company's light and airy brand aesthetic. If being featured on our portfolio is important to you, we have many Colorado and traveling photographers that we can recommend for your wedding day.
