DIY Bridal Posses

Kate’s Garden is the perfect place to arrange your wedding flowers. Though guided by experts, our unique DIY service gives you creative control while reducing costs. 

The morning of the day before your wedding, bring your “posse" of five friends and relatives to our Markham Studio. You’ll instantly become floral assistants; trained on the spot. You’ll also be amazed how much flower arranging knowledge can be acquired in just a few hours. From centrepieces, to bouquets to altar arrangements, you will arrange all of your wedding flowers...with the exception of corsages. (We provide the beverages but feel free to bring along refreshments to make it into a party).  

Free Studio Usage

There is no additional fee to use our Seminar Room, guidance, flower arranging tools and supplies. We ask only that you purchase competitively-priced vessels and fresh flowers from Kate’s Garden. 

Consultation

Begin the process with a wedding consultation with Kate ideally six months or more prior to your wedding. Kate works on every wedding personally from consult to set up. The consultation and planning fee is $50 per hour. Using the latest technology and extensive reference material, Kate helps you to convert your vision into beautiful, seasonal choices for your Wedding Day.

If the wedding is more than one year in advance of the wedding date, a $100 plus tax Save-the-Date Booking Fee is required. Six months in advance of the wedding, a 25% percent Initial Deposit is required.  Two months prior to the wedding an additional 25% of the Final Deposit is due. The remaining balance is due the day of your Wedding Posse.

Thank you so much for the gorgeous flowers on our wedding day. They were simply exquisite and in full bloom all day. We had so many compliments from our guests and we just adored them as well. Thank you for making it so fun to put together too.

We can not begin to thank you enough for helping our vision of our perfect wedding day come true! My bouquet was so perfect. The DIY florals was one of the best and most fun decisions I made throughout the planning process. It made me love every flower and centerpiece more! Thank you for your patience, support and guidance and sharing in our excitement.
