In what ways can a couple customize a packages with your company?
We do not have “packages” at town & country gardens. During your complimentary consultation a package will be created for you, with only the items that are needed for your wedding day.
What advice to you have for couples when considering booking a vendor in your field?
Be sure you connect with your coordinator. Flowers are a wonderful way to express individuality and if your vision is not seen by your coordinator it could lead to a mismatched vision for your wedding day. Your florist should see your vision and use their experience and knowledge of the industry to compliment not overtake your vision.
What type of online tools do you provide for your couples?
We have created galleries on our website to help inspire your ideas. We also have a wedding blog that provides helpful information to planning brides and grooms. Our facebook page also has many of our past wedding photos which will provide more inspiration for your own ideas.
During your complimentary consultation, we will spend extra time getting to know you. We will ask about the dresses, the colors, the cake, the venue, the invitations, essentially all of your ideas that have created your wedding style. We want to hear about your favorite flowers as well as design elements that are being used for the wedding day. All of this will help us create your individual floral designs.
How has your business grown or changed since inception?
In 1963 Town & Country Gardens was primarily a wholesale grower of cut flowers. In 1969 we opened our first retail florist location in Elgin. As our customer base grew so did Town & Country Gardens. We presently have 3 locations, Elgin, Geneva & Bartlett and we are ranked one of the top retail florists that specializes in weddings in the Chicagoland area.
What do you enjoy most about weddings?
We enjoy the individuality that flowers can bring to a wedding day. They can be used to create so many looks that can truly portray each bride and groom’s style and personality.
What does the future hold for your business?
More weddings! We are looking forward to continuing what we do best, servicing weddings and creating floral designs for our clients that they can remember forever.
