Hello, it's so nice to meet you!

Frequently Asked Questions
1. How far in advance should I book my services with Dana Renae Designs?
If you wish to work with a planner and designer throughout the planning process I would suggest booking with us in the beginning. If you are interested in coordination/management of your event, I would suggest booking us 6-9 months prior. In order to ensure our availability and to get the most out of working with us I would suggest booking us sooner than later.
2. Are you available for travel?
Yes, we are excited to help serve our clients near and far. No matter if you are wanting a quaint wedding celebration in the Caribbean or a Mountain side retreat for your organization, we are the team for you.
3. How much is an initial consultation?
Free. Getting to know each other is an important part in the planning process. You need to feel confident we are the right team for you and we need to make sure our services meet what your needs are. Our consult will allow for us to custom create the services to meet your needs and we are happy to recommend someone else if we think they are a better fit.
4. Do you offer "Day-Of" only coordination?
No. Don't let the term "Day-of" mislead you into believing we can just jump in at the very end and know exactly all the details you have planned for many months or years. It takes several weeks for us to confirm vendors and details and provide a quality of service that you deserve. Our coordination/management service starts 4-8 weeks prior and is perfect for those who wish to plan their own wedding or event but want it professionally executed so that you may enjoy every moment.
5. Can I hire you for only floral design?
Yes. Even though we have flowers included in some of our packages, we do allow for floral only clients. Many of our clients custom create a plan to meet their specific needs. One of our most popular option is clients booking our Coordination and adding flowers. Every package is custom created to meet your needs. One of my favorite things to say is "Your Day, Your Way".
6. How do I book Dana Renae Designs?
Your first step is to book a free consult so that we may get to know each other a little better. Simply fill out the contact form and tell us a little more and we will get started.
Giving back to our community
Your beautiful event flowers are meant to be loved and not tossed into the trash, that is why we have created our "Petals of Hope" program. Upon your request we take your left over flowers, separate them into smaller arrangements, and deliver them to a nursing home, hospice or facility of your choice.
