Frequently asked questions
How can I get in contact with you?
We can be reached via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org, via telephone at 316.393.0410, or via messenger through our Facebook page (The Timeworn Traveler).
Do you have a storefront?
We are proud to sell our home decor items at The Cottage Market in Valley Center and Bittersweet in Derby.
Do you ship your bouquets?
We no longer offer shipping on our bouquets due to the delicate nature of the flowers. We are happy to provide free delivery within a thirty mile radius of Wichita, Kansas, on orders over $50.
How far in advance of my wedding date should I order my flowers?
We recommend ordering as far in advance of your wedding date as possible so that we can place your special event on our calendar. Ordering less than six weeks prior to your event may render us unable to have time to prepare the flowers for your wedding due to scheduling conflicts with other weddings that have already been booked. Wedding orders are prioritized in the order in which they are received unless arrangements are made for rush preparation.
Am I limited to the colors featured in the color charts on your website for my flowers?
You are not limited to the colors featured in the color charts on our website. The color charts have been provided as inspiration to help brides determine what color combinations they would like. We are happy to create a custom dye to match any color swatch that you provide us. Please contact us for further information and for details on how to forward your color swatch to us by mail.
If I have my bouquet scented how long will the scent last? How can I add scent to my flowers once the scent wears off?
The scent will last approximately three months. If you wish to continue scenting your flowers after that time you can place a few drops of essential oil on the underside of your flowers. Applying oil to the tops of the flowers is not recommended as it may alter the color of the dye.
How do I care for my flowers when my wedding is over?
The flowers are very low maintenance. To preserve the life of them please store them in a dry place at room temperature. Do not keep them in an airtight container or places with excessive moisture. The flowers are made from natural wood so they need to breathe. Keep them out of direct sunlight to ensure that the color does not fade.
Do you meet brides for in-person consultations?
We absolutely are happy to meet with you for an in-person consultation! We have created our website for the convenience of our brides who prefer to do their wedding shopping online. We love meeting with our brides in person to discuss their floral options. We are happy to bring sample bouquets, scents, and flowers from our color chart so you can see, smell, and feel the product. We provide free consultations within a thirty mile radius of Wichita.
I feel like I've seen the product somewhere. Have you participated in the bridal expos?
You may remember us from the bridal expo held at Century II in Wichita. We participate in the expo every year in January. We are proud to be the exclusive florist for David's Bridal models for the stage show at the January bridal expo every year since 2017.
What is your return or cancellation policy?
Due to the custom nature of the floral products created we do not offer returns on our floral items. Once the product is custom dyed it is difficult for us to repurpose that product. If you are unhappy with your floral items for any reason we are happy to make any reasonable changes so you will be satisfied with your purchase.
Why choose wooden flowers? What are some of the benefits?
There are many benefits of utilizing wooden flowers in your bouquet. The flowers are beautiful and can be custom dyed to match any color! Wooden floral bouquets are lighter than traditional floral bouquets which makes them more comforable to hold for all of the photographs you will be posing for.
How are the flowers delivered to me?
We deliver bouquets in glass vases inside a box that will hold them upright for transportation. Corsages and boutonnieres are delivered in traditional clear plastic boxes.
What sizes of bouquets do you offer? How many flowers are in each?
We offer five different sizes of bouquets - Premium Bridal (not pictured below), Bridal, Bridesmaids, Flower Girl, and Toss bouquets. Premium Bridal Bouquets include approximately 35-45 flowers and feature extra and multiple types of filler/greenery. Bridal bouquets include approximately 35-45 flowers (quantity of flowers depends on the sizes of flowers utilized and the overall look that the bride wishes to achieve). Bridesmaids bouquets include approximately 25-30 flowers, flower girl bouquets include approximately 15-20 flowers, and toss bouquets include approximately 6-10 flowers.
Do I need to have a toss bouquet or can I throw my bridal bouquet?
We do recommend that all brides that are planning on having a bouquet toss order a separate toss bouquet. The flowers are somewhat fragile and if they are jostled while being caught or land on the floor it will likely result in some breakage of the petals.
Do you have a price list?
Yes, we do have an estimated price list. Please keep in mind that all prices are estimates only and you must have an in-person consultation to get a custom quote for the flowers for your wedding. Prices will vary depending upon the particular flowers, filler, and greenery utilized in the creation of the bouquet/centerpiece as well as the style of the bouquet/centerpiece.
How do I book my wedding/event with you?
To book your wedding/event with us, please contact us via telephone at 316.393.0410, e-mail at email@example.com, or via messenger on our Facebook page (The Timeworn Traveler). We can complete the consultation for your wedding order in-person, over the phone, or via e-mail. We do have a floral contract that you will be required to sign and a 50 percent deposit is required to place your wedding/event date on our calendar.
I would like to honor a loved one in my bouquet. Do you have any ideas?
We love to customize your bouquet to honor loved ones! We have created multiple bouquets that honor loved ones and can share the ideas from those bouquets with you or are happy to work with you to create something that is uniquely your own vision.
