Do you make things yourself?
Abso-flippin-lutely! At Flipside I don’t sell anything I haven’t made with my own fair hands. Nearly all of my pieces are bespoke, handcrafted to fulfill the wishes of my lovely brides and grooms. However, I do sometimes sell my much loved sample pieces, so keep an eye on the shop.
Can I copy something you’ve made before?
Sure, no problem. Just let me know what you like about the piece you’ve seen, if you’d like any amendments, and of course, your colours. It’s worth stressing however that it is nearly impossible to get two items to be exactly identical due to the supply of fabrics, buttons and how much coffee I’ve had.
How big are the bouquets?
As big as your imagination….and budget! Generally Flipside produces 3 sizes of each type of bouquet (see price guide above). All sizes are approximate due to the bespoke nature of the design process. Button bouquets are smaller than their felt or paper cousins. As a guide, I suggest large or medium bouquets for Brides, and medium or small versions for Bridesmaids. Whichever size you choose, each piece will be lovingly created just for you, with lots of funky design quirks. See the price guide above for further details
What are the Bouquets made from?
Mainly pixie dust, buttons, beads, felt or origami papers. Each piece of loveliness is handwired to form a bouquet shape. I’m sorry but I don’t make oasis based bouquets, or use real flowers. It upsets Mamma Flip to think of real flowers ending up on the compost heap after your big day (but I am odd.) Each bouquet is hand finish rather than using plastic bouquet holders.
How much time does it take?
That depends on how much chocolate and coffee I’ve consumed in the Flipside Design Cave! As a guide, I’m currently requesting 4 months notice for bespoke bouquets. Smaller accessories can be completed in much quicker timescales. For edibles, I will time their delivery so that they arrive one week before your special day.
Are your creations suitable for wee ones?
All of the pieces I create at Flipside are handcrafted, from small components such as buttons and beads. They are not toys, and shouldn’t be given to children under the age of 3 for safety reasons – at that age, everything goes in their mouths!
Fantabulous – I want to order!
Great! I love you already, and can’t wait to work with you! Firstly, fill in the contact form, with as much info as possible – remember to include your wedding date! If you have examples of colours or ideas, feel free to include links to them. Momma Flipster (Kerri) will contact you directly to have a good old natter.
A non refundable deposit of 50% is required, up front, for bespoke items. The balance is payable on completion, and prior to shipping. Throughout the design process, I will send you lots of updates with glorious photographs, to ensure you’re happy little pixies.
How will I receive my order?
Bespoke bouquet orders are very carefully packaged, and hand delivered for local brides. For you wonderful moomins further afield, they will be very lovingly boxed and sent via special delivery.
Small orders will be sent via Royal Mail, please request special delivery if preferred (a small fee will be added on to your order)
Items purchased from the Flipside shop include P&P.
