Curious to know the differences between a micro versus full-service wedding? Well, this short blog post outlines just that! At least, the differences between the two services for Blushing Garden. 

To simply put it, we categorize the two services based on floral budget: 

  • Micro-weddings have a floral budget between $1,500-$2,500 
  • Full-service weddings have a floral budget of $2,500+ 

So, what are the differences between the two?  

  • Includes delivery and set-up, however, does not include tear down: Tear down may be added as an additional service for an extra fee. If 'tear down' is not added as an additional service, clients take responsibility for floral clean-up and any rental returns. All rentals must be returned within 3 days of wedding date.
  • This service is only offered to couples getting married at venues within a 30-mile radius of Iowa City.

Full-Service Weddings
  • Includes delivery, set-up and tear down: We will deliver all floral pieces, set-up/install of floral arrangements and we will return in the evening to handle floral clean-up and collect all rental items. 
  • Site visit to venue: If desired, full-service wedding clients may request a site visit to their wedding venue to discuss any and all floral details! Site visits will be scheduled based on  availability. 

And that's it - That about sums up the main differences for us! 

Whether your wedding falls into our micro or full-service category, we will always strive to serve each and every one of our clients well. We want to ensure you feel heard and cared for!
