1. Introduction: What's your story?

C&M Fleuri started out of our love for flowers. We really love what we do! Flowers represent many different feelings and emotions. We meet people and get the privilege of being part of their special events and moments in life. We know flowers touches people's lives, so we take care of every detail. C&M Fleuri provides full service, fully customizable, beautiful flower décor for events at extremely affordable prices.

2. What's your experience as a wedding florist business? How many weddings are in there in your portfolio?

A wedding is the most important event in a person's life. We have been creating beautiful designs for our clients for over five years. Our team is very passionate about wedding decoration. From arches to boutonnieres, we pay attention to every small detail. We designed over 300 bouquets with different taste and colors. Every bride has her own style and we love making her dream come true.

3. How far in advance do couples need to secure your services?

Book your wedding florist as soon as you decide on a venue, typically 9 to 12 month in advance. This will also determine the delivery and setup fees. Also, try to decide on a color palette but be open to suggestions. Decide if the type of flower is more important or only the color.

4. How do you price your floral arrangements? What are the different packages that you offer and which one is your most popular package?

We can create any of the following arrangements for you and more:

Bridal bouquets
Bridesmaid bouquets
Toss bouquet
Boutonnières
Corsages
Sweetheart table decoration
Welcome table decoration
Table centerpieces
Aisle decoration
Floral arches

We don't have pre-priced packages since every couple have specific needs. Prices depend on flower type and size. It also depends on venue restrictions. We have several items for rent. In general our prices are very affordable and we love working with our couple's budget. No budget is too small. Contact us for details 408-910-0254.

We love creating any design that you like from rustic to classic to soft romantic! We can also give you suggestions on which colors will go well together. Please check our website and Instagram to check our different designs.
