(AKA LEAD TIME OR TURNAROUND TIME)
Every effort is made to ship within the scheduled timeframe. Being that our focus is quality and attention to detail for every single order, occasionally we run behind by a week or two. In the event that we are running behind schedule, we will contact you to let you know. Don’t worry though, we will always be sure that you have your flowers within plenty of time for the wedding. Conversely, oftentimes orders process faster than our estimated time-frame but we can’t guarantee a faster processing time. If you need a rush order, please contact us for availability prior to checkout.
Made to Order vs. Pre-Made
Check a listing carefully to understand if a product is pre-made and ready to ship or if the product is ordered before it’s handmade.
Look for the following image if a product is ready for shipment immediately:
Both are handmade but the pre-made is shipment ready while the made-to-order products take longer to be created for you. We work on each order in the order that it is received, which is the reason for the turnaround time. If your order has a long lead time, it is because there are multiple orders ahead of yours on the schedule.
The product(s) you receive might vary slightly from the product picture due to the nature of your product(s) being 100% handmade to order. While everything is made to the same patterning, we do not guarantee that your flowers will be exact duplicates of those seen in the sample photos.
Listing photos are shot in natural light to ensure the most accurate color. Inside, under artificial lighting, the colors in real life may appear different than what is shown in the listing photos. Colors may also look different than the actual color depending on viewing device.
Care for your flowers by:
- Storing them away from direct sunlight
- Storing them in a dry space
- Storing bouquets upright in a vase or jar
While flowers from The SunnyBee are made to the highest quality, sola wood flowers and dried flowers may still be delicate. They should be handled with care.
We always love creating new designs from scratch. Please contact us for a quote.
Custom orders can have a lengthier processing time. Ask us for details.
– Specific sizes are indicated in each listing. Here is a detail of our sizing scale –
Extra small brides bouquets are about 21 inches around. Extra small is the smallest we recommend for a bride. Usually anything under 20 inches is considered way too small by most brides.
Small brides bouquets range from 22-23 inches around.
Medium brides bouquets are about 24 inches around. Many brides find mediums to be perfectly suited in size while others find them to be too small. It just depends on individual preference.
Standard sized brides bouquets are about 25-26 inches around.
Full sized brides bouquets are 27 inches around and up.
When describing our bride bouquets, we avoid terms like “large” or “extra large” because people tend to have widely different interpretations of those descriptors, even when given size measurements. Most brides find standard and full sized bouquets to be just right, but larger plus sized bouquets can also be made upon request.
Mini bridesmaid bouquets are very small – consisting of approximately 3 regular sized flowers and some accents or filler. Minis measure about 15 inches around and under. Minis are often used as toss or jr. bridesmaid bouquets.
Small bridesmaids bouquets consist of a single tier of flowers and range from about 17-19 inches around. They are often used for bridesmaids when cost is the main factor in choosing a size because they are bigger than minis but cost less than regulars.
Regular sized bridesmaids bouquets are usually two tiers of medium to small sized flowers, with a few larger statement flowers included. They average 21 inches around. These are often MoH bouquet, but this size also works an extra small bride’s bouquet.
