Micro-Wedding: Brittany + Shawn

When I met Kaifa, I was so relieved to find a partner who had been reducing floral waste for years, and could work with us to reduce floral waste from our events.

How We Fulfill Your Poppy Order

Poppy’s signature style is lush and romantic, like you wandered into an enchanted garden and hand-gathered the prettiest stems you could find. It’s easygoing and organic with gentle movement. The thing about this effortless look is that it takes an extraordinary amount of effort. We’ve given a glimpse into how we execute from customer vision to final product, and now we want to share more about how we cull our catalog, customize our offerings, and guarantee the freshest flowers at your wedding. In short, this is how we fulfill your Poppy order.

How Poppy Executes from Vision to Final Product

Shopping online for wedding flowers is a new experience. Poppy knew that modern couples would benefit from the simplicity and efficiency of this process, and that’s why we built our model. With most couples spending an average of $2,300 on their wedding flowers (that’s the average Poppy wedding customer, too), they want to be sure they’re getting a product that matches their vision. There’s the real-time factor of enjoying lush, beautiful blooms that enhance the magic of your special day. And, there’s the photo-op factor of ensuring that the flowers photograph well. A floral budget encompasses personals (flowers that you carry or wear) as well as ceremony and reception decor. It’s a lot to think about, especially if you’re not knowledgeable about flowers.
