What is the min amt of time that should be allotted for delivery and setup?
Most weddings don’t take too long to set up, we like to be well on our way before the guests start arriving, generally we go after the pictures have all started. We have a few weddings every year that we are at for a few hours at least but most of them only take between 30 and 90 minutes to get fully delivered.
When we are booked to deliver a wedding for a bride, we like to be sure that we are there before the photographer does a “first look”.
I usually don’t see anyone who is ahead of schedule and that is o.k. with us, we understand how much time it takes to get ready on a wedding day. So for us it is good to remind the bride that she does not have to pad the time that we should be there, she just need to get a timeline from the photographer. We like to make sure that we are not a vendor to worry about on the wedding day, we will get there and set up all of the flowers and when we see that there are a few people ready for their personal flowers, we like to be able to pin them on as well. It is actually kind of fun!
