Do you charge for an initial meeting?
No, our initial consultations are completely free of charge. We want to make sure you’re 100% comfortable working with us and confident that Gingermegs can deliver your dream day. Your special event is a personal and unique thing, so we only want your commitment once you’re sure we’re right for each other.
We’d love to get to know you (preferably over a cup of chai and biscuits), and we know you’ll have more questions and ideas to run by us. Get in touch with Megan and arrange a time and place that’s suitable for you. We’d love to meet you!
Are you a qualified wedding stylist and florist?
Absolutely! Megan has completed a Diploma in Wedding Planning, Style and Design, as well as a Certificate III in Floristry. Not only that, but the team at Gingermegs also have degrees in passion, party and pizzazz… Okay, we admit, those last degrees might be exaggerated, but if there was a degree for it, we would have graduated with Honours!
Do you have packages?
The short answer? No, however we can provide basic ceremony packages, but other than that we try to create truly unique weddings and events that can’t be covered by set-in-stone packages. We believe that each and every bride is completely unique. That’s why we think it’s important to ensure your day is special and truly tailored to exactly your style and personality. We’ll spend time working with you to come up with your very own package that is completely tailored to your needs, expectations and vision for your day.
What are service fees? (Set-up + Pack-down)
Service fees factor in the labour and complexity required to setup your event. We consider the time frame the function centre allows us to set up prior to the event and how quickly it needs to be packed down that night. This requires varying levels of staff at different times of the day with commonly 5-6 hours between set up and pack down. It also takes into consideration parking and accessibility to your venue. We try to minimise these costs where appropriate however it is necessary part of delivering a hight quality service to you.
Do you offer discounts or price match?
No, however we understand that having the best for your wedding can be costly and we really appreciate that you have come to Gingermegs and believe in our vision. Our fee reflects our dedication, passion and experience in our field. We trust you can see it in our work as well as the reviews left by happy clients. We believe that you deserve an uncompromised experience leading up to and on your wedding day!
How do I make payment?
Planning a big event can be stressful, especially when you’re trying to organise payment for your suppliers. We understand that and have made our payment system as simple as possible for you. Our preferred payment method is direct deposit and you will find our payment details on our invoice.
After payment of your non-refundable 30% deposit the easiest option is one lump sum payment however we understand some brides like to pay in increments, or have their budget set up in different ways, so if you have any special requests about payments just let Megan know.
Do you have a shop or showroom where we can see your work or visit you?
No, we don’t have a shop or a showroom. Seems weird, right? Well, not having a shop or a showroom makes it easier for us to hit the road and come to your special event. Don’t worry though, the beauty in what we do is that it’s all visual – so, if you want to see some examples of our work, just have a scroll through our gallery. We also have some testimonials from previous clients so you can hear their experiences first hand. Just get in touch with Meg if you want to find out more.
How do I look after my flowers?
It’s pretty simple – just follow the care instructions Gingermegs gives you on the day. Each and every flower delivery is accompanied by a care pack that helps you get the most out of your flowers. With each flower delivery, we’ll make sure we let you know whether they need to be placed in water or a cool room and give you any other specific tips for your types of flowers. Sometimes, they’re even best left untouched in the packaged box they were delivered in.
