Shipping and Hand Delivery Instructions

Shipping

1:

I am happy to accept flowers within 48 hours of your special event. If you are shipping your bouquet, please make sure all the stems are tied together. You can do this with a rubber band, wire or string. We don't want flowers bouncing around too much during transit! Take a wet paper towel and wrap the ends of the stems so they have enough water to drink while traveling. To make sure the paper towels don't leak in your box, wrap them in plastic saran wrap, or a plastic bag. Secure that with a rubber band too!

*If you would like to also send a ribbon from the bouquet, I will make sure to attach it carefully to the back of your collage piece.

2:

To ensure the petals and blooms don't bruise during transit, wrap them lightly with tissue paper, bubble wrap, or kraft paper. Please do not put the flowers or petals in a plastic bag. Also, please include other flowers that you may want as back ups. Often the wedding bouquet flowers get a lot more use than, for example, centerpiece flowers. Please feel free to add these additional, less touched flowers to your arrangement.

3:

Please add a note to the box with your name and contact information. Also, feel free to let me if you have any special requests or special things that you would like for me to know.

4:

Time to get your shipping box ready! Tape and secure an ice pack, (preferably disposable) to the bottom or side of the box. Make sure it's away from the petals! This will ensure a cold environment for your flowers during their trip. You can place the ice pack in a plastic bag as well. Make sure no petals or blooms are touching the ice pack directly, this will wilt the flowers.

5:

Place the wrapped flowers into the box, and lightly fill the box with bubble wrap, tissue paper, etc. We want to make sure that they do not shift around too much and get bruised. Get excited becuse you are all ready to ship them to me! I will send you an email confirmation when I have received them. I will follow-up within 4 weeks to let you know how the process is going, to discuss framing and etc.

*****Please Note: If you do not follow shipping instructions, Brigid KO and Brigid KO Botanical are not liable for expired or wilted flowers. Also, remember that we are working with natural, organic materials which often have unique characteristics and may not all come out usable or exactly the same. By sending your flowers you agree to & accept this, you have signed your contract, and recognize only the usable flowers will be pressed.***
